After three full, @$$-kicking weeks working out on the other regimen, I only lost a mere couple inches all over but GAINED THREE MOTHER EFFING POUNDS. @#$*(@&#$(*#@&$!
I kept convincing myself that it was mostly muscle and/or water weight, especially considering the weight training I was doing was grueling, but I couldn’t keep at it and keep seeing a gain on the scale. It doesn’t so much for your self esteem, you know? Not to mention, as great as I was eating, and as diligent as I was in working out faithfully and sticking to the plan, I simply didn’t feel that good about myself. Sure, I felt stronger, but I was disappointed in my progress; I expected to see more of a change and a roominess in my jeans after three weeks, especially considering how hard I’d been working and how drastic the diet change was.
I won’t say I gave up completely, I’ve just decided to switch gears.
Just as I was stuck, second-guessing myself and what I was doing, I saw a fellow Fitfluential Ambassador was asking for a little promotional help. Brad Gouthro is the man behind BradGouthroFitness.com, and he’s launching a new set of workout DVDs today called the Live Lean Meltdown. This new workout has an introductory 3-day discount at 40% off, which gets you this 10-disc set for only $27!! He shared with me the Live Lean Meltdown videos in return for spreading the word about them. I tried them, and immediately LOVED them! Short and sweet and straight to the point! I loved them so much, I decided purchased his Live Lean Afterburn videos, too, and got to work. And when I say work, I mean W-O-R-K!
Brad means BUSINESS and takes no prisoners, and I love love LOVE it! Hello, cardio. Hello, no nonsense fitness. I don’t know if you can see it clearly, but there was BIG sweat pouring off of me in this video, taken just after my workout.
