Weight loss Challenge – second month review

This month has been great I’ve lost a steady 2lb a week which adds to my already 1 stone.

I decided to try a different workout this month Jillian Michael’s, Banish Fat Boost Metabolism, wow!! it kills she is a mean machine and very good at what she does, the motivation she gives throughout is great one particular quote stuck in my head or the just if it did, it was “you are stronger than you think” it definitely kept me going through all the circuits. The weather was so warm these past few weeks so I was a sweaty mess afterwards even though the windows were open and the fan on but still only loosing the 2lb, I did it 4 times a week for 2 weeks, I had hoped to loose more but 2lb is still great a loss is loss and another step towards my goal.


My shoulder wasn’t doing to well so I used some DUK tape,  no its not the black tape we use for wires etc which is what I immediately thought of when I first heard of it, it stands for Dynamic Underlay Kinetic tape it is the only kinetic tape to contain Nikken’s Advanced Far-Infrared and Negative Ion technology, it comforts stressed muscles and joints and promotes greater freedom of movement, great for working out or afterwards and It felt amazing!! As soon as I put it on I could feel the warmth all around my shoulder and upper arm, I had it on for about 4 days and showered with it on too. you can find more information on it here as well as a special offer. for USA/Canada go here


This next month I will be doing one of her other dvds the 30 day shred, it says on the did cover that you can loose upto 20lbs in that time, so we will see how much I can burn off. I aim to do it 6 times a week as they are only 20 minute workouts.

This months meals have been a lot of summer food, plenty of salads for me, I have noticed especially when we have our treat meal, I can’t eat as much. I’m not really ever hungry either anymore, I’m not quite sure at what point this happened but my stomach has most definitely shrunk.

  1. You are doing great!! I have put a stone on since Christmas so I need to start being good again! Your food looks so yummy and healthy 🙂 Well done on the weight loss 🙂

  2. These meals look delicious. I’m a huge fan of sweet potato which we call Kumara and the soup sounds fabulous!

  3. Congratulations on doing so well so far, you seem motivated! I’ve tried the 30 day shred a day it’s great. Admittedly I’ve not done the full 30 days but I wasn’t looking to lose weight, whereas I do need to now! Good luck with it zx
