Everyone has been asking me how Body Beast is going! Sooo I thought I’d give ya’all an update. So if you have no idea what I’m taking about you can watch this little video or check out my post about Body Beast.
Ok so here’s the dealio…at first I was super intimidated by the workout. Like kinda freaking out haha But once I got into my groove…I’ve discovered that
#1 I really love it
#2 Sagi is hilarious (not sure if that’s intentional which makes it even funnier)
#3 Sagi is so HANDSOME. he’s 40 which is PROOF that muscle = fountain of youth
#4 He’s surprisingly motivational. “Whatever it takes” He encourages you to continue with the reps even if you have to drop your weights
#5 I feel SO STRONG!!!! but I STILL have my feminine curves and girly body that I love
#6 I’ve learned to let go of the number on the scale. ok so I KNOW that muscle is denser than fat but…ever feel like it’s easy to GIVE advice but then when it comes to YOU…you forget all common sense and science and you focus on how you “feel” Yea, I need to knock that off! haha I’m learning…
I love this illustration. Obviously a pound is a pound, however muscle takes up less space than fat, so if there are two people that weigh the same-one lean and one not so lean, the one with higher body fat % will appear bigger in size.
I’m not gonna lie…I had no idea what a super set, drop set, progressive set or any other “bodybuilder” term meant. Totally ignorant. But now..I feel like I’ve learned soo much over the last month and a half. I’m pushing myself more and allowing myself to be successful. This might sound a little silly..but even when I did P90X I would stop myself from picking up a heavier weight or pushing myself harder because my brain was telling me I couldn’t.
Your mind gives up before your body does!! After doing the Ultimate Reset and then transitioning into this…I feel like I’m more in tune with my body and actually listening to my body instead of what I THINK I can do.
|Day 35 Body Beast Results
I currently still have about 45 days to go so I’ll keep you posted…but ladies seriously…don’t be afraid of this workout. The best part- this is something you can do with your man (without worrying that YOU’ll look like a man haha) and you’re getting STRONGER FOR LIFE!
I can rearrange the living room by myself if I wanted! Move this couch? No problem!
|Excuse the bathroom mess haha but I’m FINALLY getting those nice round shoulders I’ve always wanted and toned arms! No bingo arms for me!!!
I should add that this is the meal plan I’ve been following…although I’ve cheated A LOT!!! haha so my focus this month is to tighten the reins…log my food intake on Myfitnesspal.com (if you’re on there, my name is katiheifner add me!) but so far so good!
And yes I take all of the supplements they recommend. I love the Suma Root because I swear it improves my mood. (At least that’s what my boyfriend tells me lol)
Although now that we’ve moved into the next phase Ive stopped taking Fuel shot because it’s too many calories but yea….I take Suma Root, protein and creatine and I still drink my Shakeology and take the Beachbody Omegas
