T25 Results!

I just wrapped up week two of Shaun T’s Focus T25 with my challenge group and what a week it’s been. This week the honeymoon phase of a new workout was over and I had to really push myself to get up and push play. Two things kept me going: the fact that it’s ONLY 25 minutes and my challenge group. In my challenge group I have it so everyone reports their day and since it’s my group – I have to lead by example. This challenge group was the best thing I have ever done for my health and fitness and I will be doing more in the future. Now on with the review.

Body In Progress

The weekend after week 1 I had a wedding to attend. Being that it was my Brother In Law’s special day;  I made a conscious decision that I wanted to let loose, have some food and enjoy myself. So I did. I think that’s the difference between a binge and a day of taking it easy: making a conscious choice that you can stand behind. No, I wasn’t perfect (two cupcakes and a lot of wine) but I did make some good choices (more veggies and less bad food at dinner). Sunday was a write off (bad choices in the moment and not planned) and I came out of the weekend with a 2.2 pound weight gain.

T25 recipesDay 8 – Alpha Cardio Cardio has never been my strong suit (I do better with strength training) but I was really happy with the improvements I made from week 1’s cardio workout. The 2.2 pound weight gain was hanging over my head heavy that day so I was making the cleanest choices I could. Breakfast was a chocolate and natural peanut butter butter Shakeology smoothie, lunch was the Chicken Waldorf Salad from the T25 recipe book (grapes, apples, lettuce, chicken, homemade citrus vinaigrette, walnuts). I fell in love with a new snack (rice cakes and tzatziki, who knew rice cakes could taste so good) and dinner was a balsamic steak salad. It was a great day.

I have a love hate relationship with this one but I kept thinking to myself, whenever I wanted to give up, that if it doesn’t challenge you – it doesn’t change you. I made the Sweet Potato and Quinoa Salad from the T25 recipe guide and I didn’t love it. So I was disappointed. My sister is staying with me (she has been doing the workouts with me) and we took a walk and picked some of the cherries that are growing my backyard. I tried to stay active today. Monday’s weight gain is pretty much all gone, I’m assuming a lot of it was salt and water.

I love little victories like that! My appetite was out of control, thankfully with filling recipes like the Dijon Chicken Pita I was able to curb it while eating clean. I’m starting to notice some subtle changes in my body. Even though my shoulders are not defined yet, I can feel them. I just need to burn some of this excess fat off. It shouldn’t be a huge problem with T25, pretty much every workout has a cardio effect.

Eat CleanDay 11 – Cardio Um, what? Cardio twice this week? Seriously? Now that it’s over and done with I have to admit that I’m thrilled with this workout! I didn’t have to modify the lunge progressions, this is huge and I’m really proud of that achievement. I had to head out of town this day and was in the truck for over three hours. For lunch I grabbed a protein bar and dinner was grilled chicken and salad. I made the best decisions I could considering my surroundings. Being away from my every day routine made it difficult – but I did it. I wanted a snack, so I made some air popped popcorn. It’s filling and a healthier choice them chips.

Focus T25 reviewDay 12 –  Lower Body Focus & Ab Intervals My legs are weak, and the Lower Body Focus workout kills me. My legs start shaking and burning before Shaun T states that they are “now feeling it”. I do have to stand up for a quick second every once in a while to ease the discomfort – but I am getting better. I was dripping sweat by the end of it and quickly switched the discs to Ab Intervals before I knew what I was doing (note: I do stretch in between). The ab workout kicked my butt a lot more then last week. My guess is it was because I was beat from Lower Body Focus. A lot of the girls in my challenge group do workout #2 on Saturday and it has me wondering if it would be better. I may have more energy and give it a bit more oomph if I did that. However, I know me and working out on a Saturday will be tough. It’s a toss up. I may try it next week. As for now, I’m glad it’s done and I’m ready for week two. I made some poor snack choices this evening and I’m ready to correct it over the weekend.

  1. You look great girl! Way to go!!! Keep up the good work. 🙂

  2. Very cool! Yeah, leading a challenge group would totally keep you focused, lol. WTG! 🙂

  3. Good for you hun! It take determination and drive to do it, trust me I know — I’m fluffy! LOL 🙂

  4. Wow! Check you out, Randa! You’re sizzlin’!!! Hot mama! Awesome job! You’re doing fabulously! You’ve inspired me to ditch the muffin top. *sigh* Did Zumba yesterday after a brief hiatus. Wowzers. Fun workout 🙂

    • Oh stop…you’re making me blush! Hahaha.
      I have never tried Zumba! I have heard great things, good for you 🙂

  5. Such a great way to stay motivated – love the idea of leading a group, or belonging to one for that matter.

    You look fantastic!

    • If you ever want to join a challenge group, let me know. I’m thinking of doing a “your choice” group. Where a person can choose whatever program that suits their budget. That way EVERYONE can participate and get fit.

  6. I have strong legs but not so much in the arms and shoulders. This is impressive and also you look fabulous! I need to commit to more protein and cardio and take a few more tips from you clearly. This program looks really challenging. I may need to get this and take a closer look. I am not super at endurance yet, but my flexibility is much much better since turning 40 than it ever was at 25 so that’s progress for me. I typically stick to weights, centergy body flow and some sort of pilates or yoga. Great work!

    • Thanks Paula! I have a hard time with cardio, I’m a weight queen but it’s always great to challenge your body. Challenge = change. 🙂
