a diet fail & an uprising

First on today's agenda is a huge Thank You to all of you who have
stopped by and left your sweet comments over the past couple of weeks. School is overwhelming me
at the moment, so I'm pretty behind in my replies. But I'm getting there, and
I appreciate you guys so much!

Next item of business:
Do you guys remember this post I wrote about intermittent fasting a few weeks ago?
Well, ladies and gentlemen, the verdict is in!
After a month of adhering almost religiously to the 8 hour diet I have lost a grand total of...

drumroll please...0 pounds.

Yup. This diet may have had me feeling and sleeping better, but as far as weight loss it was a total bust. An epic fail. 


Deep down, I think I knew that combining my sporadic runs and workouts with something as easy as limiting the number of hours a day I was eating was not  going to be enough to get me back into my skinny jeans. But I was really hoping!

Now, I don't want you to get the wrong idea here...I haven't given up on getting back in shape. I have every intention of getting rid of these less than lovely love handles being bathing suit-ready by the time summer rolls around. But I need help, you guys! I need somebody to slap the Lunchable right out of my hand and make me do some push-ups! But dammit, I'm too old to join the Army. 

As luck would have it, a few days ago I was contacted about trying a brand new fitness program called Revolt. If you haven't heard of it yet, it's okay, I hadn't either. That's because it's a brand new 6 week plan (although I'm going big and signing on for 12) developed by mother of four turned personal trainer and fitness competitor Nichole Huntsman. Each cycle of the program is called an "Uprising" and  includes everything from workouts, to meals to online communities and support. I'll admit, I hesitated a bit before signing up, as this is for sure going to be a whole lot tougher than just skipping breakfast every day. But ultimately I think it's exactly what I need to get toned, and keep me motivated and on the straight and narrow! I'm looking forward to sharing my progress with you all...starting with some less-than-stellar "before" pictures (ego-check, what!) The first Uprising starts March 4th...why don't you come join me and we'll get our butts in shape together! Plus, one of us could win $10,000, and that's a whole lotta new bathing suits to show off a glorious new shape!

Happy Sunday Chickadees!
