Revolt:The Final Weigh In



Week 12 baby! Are you ready for some pictures and some awesome results? I would hope that after this post you will at the very least go check out Revolt. Try the free week. What's the worst that could happen? You will see results I promise!!!


 I realized today as I was making my before and after collages that I was in some serious denial about how my body looked. I didn't look bad per say just not as good as I could.  I was really apprehensive about starting this program when I was first approached. I've talked a little about it. First of all I really didn't think I needed it and secondly, I worried that I wouldn't be able to do it. I finally took the plunge and I'm so so happy that I did.

I made a couple goals at the beginning. I wanted to weigh 125 lbs and have a body fat of 20%. I not only surpassed both goals but I got a pretty damn good looking body to show for it. Is it perfect? Heck no! Is it better today than it was yesterday? Heck yeah it is! It's only going to get better from here too.

I love that I look  better but what's even better than that is I feel GREAT!!! I haven't felt this good in a long long time. My anxiety is better, my stomach isn't sick all the time, I'm not as tired and I can keep up with my kids.

As a reminder here is what I looked like before...
Here is what I look like now...

Revolt Week 11

2 posts in one day! Since I'm almost done with my required 12 posts for Revolt it's silly to promise to be better right??? I am hoping to get back to posting projects soon. I have a bunch of stuff I have been working on so I don't have any excuses not to be posting.

Here's what's been going on. I again was really good about the diet until Thursday again. Mike and I decided to go on an adventure on the Motorcycle for a couple days. I didn't want to have to worry about Revolt for a few days so I scrapped the whole idea. Workouts and all. I haven't worked out since Thursday morning and it's now Sunday afternoon. I have huge plans to kill my last week! I will workout everyday HARD and stick to my meals! I even prepped my breakfasts until Wednesday. I will prep the rest of the week on Tuesday when I have no other plans.

My last post will have my progress pics. I am excited to see if there has been anymore change since week 6. I feel like there has been but the proof is in the pics. I plan to continue with Revolt after my 12 weeks. I may not follow to a T (like I have been anyway) but I want to be healthy and feel good.

Results time!!!

Last Week:
 Height: 5'6"

Chest: 28.75'
Waist: 24'
Hips: 35.75'
Thigh: 18.75'

A small loss. I really am happy to maintain at this point. I would like to tone a bit more.

Revolt Week 10

Once again I'm running behind on my posts. Some things never change! So week 10 was the week of the 4th of July, which is also the husband's birthday. I was good up until Thursday when I had my cheat day. Then I let the cheat day flow into Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I feel so much better when I follow the Revolt plan I just struggle to stick with it. It's easier to grab a chocolate covered granola bar than it is to make a smoothie. I really need to prep my meals! I know that would make it so much easier to follow the diet.

As usual I did all my workouts. I absolutely LOVE them! Nichole is AMAZING!! The workouts are fun and fast. I like that in less than an hour I am done and have worked up a nice sweat. And they WORK!!! I am seeing definition in my arms, abs and legs that I never had before. I'm loving it!

Now for my results...

 Last Week:
 Height: 5'6"
Weight: 122 lbs
Neck: 11.25'
Chest: 28.75'
Waist: 24'
Hips: 35.75'
Thigh: 19'
Calves: 11.75'
Body Fat:19.7%


And this week:
 Height: 5'6"
Weight: 122 lbs
Neck: 11.25'
Chest: 28.75'
Waist: 24'
Hips: 35.75'
Thigh: 18.75'
Calves: 11.5'
Body Fat:19.2%


Even with all the "cheating" I did I still saw a loss! That's amazing to me!

Revolt: Week 9

Only 3 weeks left of my 12 week Revolt!!! I haven't been sticking strictly to the diet, as I said in the previous post. I do the workouts every day. If I can't get one in I double up the next day to make sure I get everything in. I did my upper body workout and my tabata workout consecutively on Saturday and it about killed me! I have been so busy this summer with Boy Scouts, dentist appointments and having 3 kids around all day everyday it's really hard to eat right and get those workouts in! I know I'm just making excuses and I plan on making every effort to kill it these last 3 weeks.
My results...

Last Week:
 Height: 5'6"
Weight: 123 lbs
Neck: 11.25'
Chest: 29'
Waist: 24'
Hips: 35.75'
Thigh: 19'
Calves: 11.75'
Body Fat:20.1%


And this week:
 Height: 5'6"
Weight: 122 lbs
Neck: 11.25'
Chest: 28.75'
Waist: 24'
Hips: 35.75'
Thigh: 19'
Calves: 11.75'
Body Fat:19.7%


Well my body fat went back down a little. I guess Mike and I need to do a little research on the body fat calipers to make sure we are doing it right. I want to do the bod pod but I'm a little scared of what the results will be.

Revolt: Week 8

I fell behind and off the wagon. I haven't really been doing too good on the diet end of things lately. I have kept up on the workouts though and I'm pretty sure that's what has kept me from gaining anything back. I will get on with my results as I will have another update for you tomorrow and I will write more about it then. I will tell you I did stay with the dinners and breakfasts all week. It was the snacks and lunches I didn't do too well with.

Last Week:
 Height: 5'6"
Weight: 123 lbs
Neck: 11.5'
Chest: 29'
Waist: 24'
Hips: 36'
Thigh: 19'
Calves: 11.75'
Body Fat:19.2%


And this week:
 Height: 5'6"
Weight: 123 lbs
Neck: 11.25'
Chest: 29'
Waist: 24'
Hips: 35.75'
Thigh: 19'
Calves: 11.75'
Body Fat:20.1%


Not really sure how my body fat went up. I'm not entirely sure I'm even measuring it right. Either way I am loving how my body is changing, and really that's all that matters.

Revolt: Week 7


I can't believe it's been 7 weeks!!  Time is just flying! I feel so much better than I have in a long long time!!  All thanks to Revolt I have moments of weakness and eat some chocolate or cake or other goodie. I am still making progress so that's good. I don't have a whole lot to say about last week I guess. I do however have some progress pics like I promised. I don't see a whole lot of difference but I feel it so I guess that's what matters.

Here is a reminder of my before Revolt pics:
Here is what I look like today:
I still have some progress to make but I'm getting there I think.

I also have my measurements. There wasn't much change from last week. I kind of had a rough week last week I guess. I had some tests done on Thursday and the anticipation of that made me weaker than usual. Thank goodness all came back okay so now I can focus on eating healthy and working out!!!

Last week:
 Height: 5'6"
Weight: 121 lbs
Neck: 11.5'
Chest: 29'
Waist: 24'
Hips: 36'
Thigh: 19'
Calves: 11.75'
Body Fat:19.7%

And this week:
 Height: 5'6"
Weight: 123 lbs
Neck: 11.5'
Chest: 29'
Waist: 24'
Hips: 36'
Thigh: 19'
Calves: 11.75'
Body Fat:19.2%

The only change was .5% body fat.  I'll take it though. any loss is good right?

Revolt Week 6

Halfway there! I am blogging about Revolt for 12 weeks and I have made it half way. At first I wasn't really clear on what I was going to do once my 12 weeks were up. To be honest I wasn't sure I could make it the full 12 weeks. Now that I've seen what Revolt has done for my body and my health I am going to try to stick with the program for the long haul. Or at least take what I have learned and incorporate it into my life. For a long time I wanted to get healthy but just wasn't sure where to start. I wanted to eat clean but it all seemed too hard and too expensive. I didn't know what was considered "clean" and what wasn't. I mean I had a pretty good idea, but there were questions and what I knew was clean just didn't sound like stuff I wanted to eat ALL the time. With Revolt I get to eat real food, with a few adjustments, and it actually tastes good. Well, most of it anyway. I still don't like stevia or truvia. They make everything taste like diet. As you may remember I'm a self proclaimed sugar addict. I just stick to the desserts with natural sugars like berries and other fruits.
 This last week was a detox week. I'm a punk and won't eat brussel sprouts. I refuse. I also refuse to force food down. I just won't do it. So instead of sticking with one detox diet I combined the 2 Nichole gave us. By Wednesday I was angry and discouraged and I wanted chocolate so bad I would have sold my first born for some. I got on the scale that morning thinking I had to have lost SOMETHING. Nope not a pound. That's when the anger and discouragement set in. I told Mike, "If I don't have a huge loss in the morning I'm eating a candy bar." He laughed and asked me what kind I wanted. I was really looking forward to it and was actually kind of hoping I wouldn't have a loss.
 I stepped on the scale Thursday morning. HUGE loss! I was stoked and a little disappointed at the same time. Damn no candy bar. I had a Dr. appointment later that morning because of a small lump under my arm. I now have to get some tests run and it's a little scary. After my appointment I had to run to the grocery store for some things. The first few things I threw in my cart?



Red Vines and a huge bag of Peanut Butter Snickers. I am proud to say I didn't eat any until cheat day. I sucked it up and dealt with my fears like a big girl. I just have to make it until Thursday when I get my tests run then I can move on.
 Let's move on to my results. I'm pretty stoked about these. I will post my beginning measurements, last week's measurements and my current measurements just so you can see the difference from the beginning. I ordered a new bikini and it should be here next week so I will post pics then. Drum roll please...

Beginning measurements
 Height: 5'6"
Weight: 129 lbs
Neck: 12'
Chest: 29.5'
Waist: 25.5
Hips: 38
Thigh: 20.5
Calves: 12.5
Body Fat: 28%

Last Week:
 Height: 5'6"
Weight: 125 lbs
Neck: 11.5'
Chest: 29.75'
Waist: 24'
Hips: 36.5'
Thigh: 19.25'
Calves: 12'
Body Fat:20.6%

And this week:
 Height: 5'6"
Weight: 121 lbs
Neck: 11.5'
Chest: 29'
Waist: 24'
Hips: 36'
Thigh: 19'
Calves: 11.75'
Body Fat:19.7%

 That's an 8lb loss, a total of 6.25 inches lost and at least 9% body fat lost. Remember I didn't have my calipers until a week into the program so I'm not really sure where I started. You can't argue with these results! Why wouldn't you want to give it a try? You can sign up for a free week! Or for just $10/month you will have full access to the plan. Menu plans, workouts and support from Nichole herself. It doesn't get much better than that!! Check it out here or any other link on this post.
