    And lisa posted a diet guideline for the challenge on her fb, will yoube following that? I would like to :)
    Your little edit was really motivating btw :D

    For me, I have never been the skinny one, just the average one with meat LOL
    I have never been above 125lbs but I have always had that layer of fat over top. And my problem area is probably my stomach, there isn't anywhere else that I am worried about. I really want to reach the point of being my best physically, so that is my goal!
  • ItsAlexisItsAlexis Posts: 88Member
    I know right? >.< but its okay! We'll be rockin out bodies during summer! >=D

    And I LOVE zuzana! Im so glad you told me about her! I will be following her workouts as well!

    I'll do one when I get home and post my results tonight :)

    And I have the same issue as well..just a pair of 10 and 2 pound dumbbells lol

    And no, I won't be following her diet guidelines. I kinda wish I could, but I like what I'm doing with my eating habits right now.

    Ever since I was little, I've always been greedy and gluttonous (is that a word? Lol) especially with the junk food. I always had the urgency to eat as much as I can before my sisters could get any >.< lol

    I was never fat though. I was athletic and though I may have been thick, I was muscular and toned. (What ruined my body was my pregnancies)

    So in terms of dieting, I have been trying to eat every 3-5 hours. If I can't because of whatever reason, I would drink a bottle of cold water (ppl say to eat every 3-5 hours to speed your metabolism, drinking cold water uses metabolism so I do it as a temporary fix)
    I've also been eating more "colorful" too. More fruits and veggies.
    I have NOT cut down on junk. I eat it whenever I feel like it. BUT, idk why, my body doesn't crave often. But when it does kick in, I'll look at the serving size and eat half the amount. I'll so chew it and take my time eating it, enjoying each bite to satisfy my craving.
    Thi has been working well for me. I'm not taking anything away from myself that I enjoy eating but I'm automaticially eating better.
    I tried cutting back on processed food but that pretty much includes everything I eat: cereal, granola bars, yogurt, etc. Maybe when I master kitchen
    So I try to avoid every diet plan offered to me...xD

    But they always do have great recipes and goodfood choices so it wouldn't hurt to follow!
    You can also find some simple recipes from

    I get my fruits and veggies from there and occasionally meat.
    And I've made quite a few dinners for my husband from the website and he loved them ^^

    I was so happy to find her again too! haha I like how she does most if not all the moves using only body weight.

    And that is good that what you are doing now is working for you (: I need to eat my food more slowly, I always just down it LOL And I also eat every few hours, or when I am hungry and my body needs it. I also have restrained myself from consuming too much carbs, which is the hardest part >.<

    Also, I finished Zuzana's ZWOW #5 and did four rounds with her haha
  • ItsAlexisItsAlexis Posts: 88Member
    Haha right? And I find her more motivating than lisa..dunno why lol

    Maybe you can write down a limit of how much you will eat and once you reach it, dont eat it for the day?? idk haha
    but I used to do the same thing, just horsing my food down like I was starving for years..-__-" It's embarrassing LOL

    I didn't get the chance to work out yesterday cuz I was busy from like 6 am to 930 pm =.=". But i managed to find the time to breakdance ( i can never skip my training sessions xD) so it wasn't a total body relaxing day lol

    Day 5

    1. arm swing 25 26
    2 10 crab/10 mountain climbers 4 4
    3. squat, sandbag side lunge 13 13

    I didn't do the sculpt today because I did some pilates that focused on the glutes and it hurt too much to
    do these moves again D: But I did ZWOW #7 today too ^^

    It must help so much that you break dance! That itself is a good workout. I always wanted to learn back in HS where all my guy friends did that.

    Writing down what we eat is a good idea! haha It'll make me eat better so I won't disappoint lol

    breakfast: boiled egg (was in a rush and only had this)
    snack: orange, small box of raisins
    lunch: 2 homemade tortilla wrap (chicken breast, red pepper, avocado, onion, celery)
    snack: 20 almonds, 2 pieces of chocolate :P
    dinner: tuna pasta, salad, 2 gyozas :3
    snack: (I was hungry so I had a 3rd snack) greek yogurt&fiber 1 honey clusters

    And I have always loved tea, green tea especially(with rice grains!). I don't like pop either so that helps a ton!
    I think I ate a lot today =.=
  • name?lessname?less Posts: 574Member


    Today only had BR Flow so I did zwow #8 and it took me 18 minutes to complete. And my butt still hurts from yesterday's pilates T^T haha

    diet today:

    I don't remember what I ate today lol I didnt really have time to sit down and eat so it was mostly snacking here and there throughout the day

    I ate a peanut butter sandwich for breakfast
    various fruits throughout the day
    and a cup of noodles for dinner..>.<"

    I don't understand how you do bodyrock AND zwow lol

    zwow looks soooo hard haha and i already know bodyrock is hard so to do both in one day?! haha

    I'm looking forward to trying it out tomorrow though >=D
  • name?lessname?less Posts: 574Member


    Sometimes I just feel really pumped to do both haha Especially since the weather here is finally starting to look like summer!

    Yesterday I ate horribly. There was a little party my parents had and it was potluck style.. plus 3 large pizzas, pop (I drank ginger ale instead of coke :P) and the most delicious homemade coffee cake ever. So~ I knew that my diet would be bad xD

    Week 2 Day 4/5:
    I already did these a few days ago. I accidently deleted my scores though T^T For now though, I will be doing zwows until they post up the next one :)

    Have you had any progress yet? I feel my tummy getting flatter and always getting stronger is evident. However, I need to put more effort into my diet... haha

    Hey! Sorry I haven't been posting my diet during my rest days..I got really sick over the weekend and I'm just starting to feel ok...enough to squeeze in the bodyrock flow and zwod #1 before the day officially ends (its 10:21 over


    As far as I remember, on saturday. i ate my usual stuff..fruits, peanut butter sandwhich, etc and made homemade baked chicken tenders for dinner
    Sunday my hubby stayed home to take care of me..and..well..his idea of helping me feel better is feeding me pizza, corn dogs, cup of

    Today, I didn't eat much because I lacked the appetite and the energy to actually prepare something..I ate 1 corn dog and a cup of noodles..x.x"

    wasted calories *sigh*

    and its totally okay to devour a whole bunch of food once in awhile! :D lol it's good to put your sped up metabolism to work.. :P

    In terms of progress, I definitely feel stronger. Especially my back, doing all those push ups are hardest on my back than my arms, chest, or abs and my back is more stable now :D lol my hubby says my legs got slimmer too. I'm still fatty around my waist though but I do see a "definition" its not all big, round, and flabby. but you can see the separation between my "gut" and..waist..? idk if that made any sense but to summarize it better, my waist got slimmer lol

    I'm so excited to take the fitness test to see the improvement...xD

    I'll come back and edit in my zwod time! ^^

    k..i got 17:11

    3 rounds of zwod#1

    Haha, you jinxed me! I ate really poorly yesterday and today >.<" yesterday, turns out, stuff got cancelled so I had plenty of time to eat BUT I was invited to lunch at a buffet with friends and dinner with my parents so..yea..didnt really portionize..x.x"

    Today was okay until dinner. Ate fruits, cheerios, vegetables, etc..but dinner came and my hubby wanted some chinese take out..and usually im good at portionizing and saving some for the next day but for whatever reason i forked almost all of it down..:(

    i did the fit test this morning.
    It was hard since I was sore all over and got bruises from breakdancing on my shoulders, back, and knees...x.x

    my scored improved VERY LITTLE lol
    I feel like maybe they could've been better if it wasn't for the

    Beginners fit test

    1, Squats 28 34 35
    2. push ups 28 25 29
    3. tricep dips 14 15 22
    4. crunches 55 57 56

    The third round, I switched the order of tricep dips and crunches cuz my arms were screaming and did the push ups on the third round on my knees.

    I'm thinking on the 3rd fit test, I'll do it after my active rest days..x.x" lol

    btw, nice improvement! its really significant! >=D
