Weight Loss Wednesday

Hello, Friends! Happy WLW! It's been a while since I've done one of these because I haven't really been very excited or pumped about my routine, which has been pretty basic. 1. Go to the gym as much as humanly possible.  2. Don't eat food. .......okay, maybe a little food. And the right sort. No grains, no sugar, no dairy, no artificial sweeteners, no alcohol. It helps to be extremely allergic to most of those! So, I've been following that, for the most part, over the past few months. And I do love it, but I've recently thrown in something that is AMAZING AND AWESOME AND MIRACULOUS. And that is daily burn. gives you a list of different programs to choose from (i.e. 15 minutes a day, Dance, Cardio Sculpt, Kettlebells, Tabata, Etc.). Once you choose a program, they give you a video for each day, ranging from 15 minutes to 60 minutes.
I've done a lot workout programs and videos throughout my life. And none of them have ever held my interest for very long. I chose MOVE! (DB's dance series) first, about 2 weeks ago. And it was really really really fun! But I decided I needed something more challenging, and switched to TBT (Tabata, or Tactical Bodyweight Training) AND I AM IN LOVE WITH IT.  It is so interesting, not boring, challenging, and rewarding!!! When I first started I could only get through the first 3 minutes, and I wanted to die. I still can't do every rep, or keep up with them, but I keep a challenging pace and I can do the whole thing now. And every time I switch on my Tabata in the morning, I find I've got better and stronger.
DailyBurn also offers two-phase nutrition program that is really great. It's very simple and do-able. You pay a bit extra for it per month, which I did for about two weeks, but it was so similar to what I was already doing I decided to drop the nutrition plan. I DID buy their DailyBurn Fuel, which is a vegan protein powder, and I love it. I'm not vegan, but I don't do dairy and I don't eat a lot of animal products, and this protein powder is the first that I've ever liked! It's a bit pricey ($65 for a total of 30 shakes), but I found it was totally worth it.
You can sign up for a 30-day trial of the DailyBurn trial and the nutrition program for free and I very highly recommend it!
