Journal Entry – April 28 through May 4

April 28 thru May 4– Days 115 thru 120

Bringing it All Together

I’m so happy to report that Gamma is done! Remember last week, I added another week?  Well sadistic Jen, chose to do the toughest week where Speed 3.0 had to be done twice during the week.  It was very challenging, but I did it and got it done.  I’m so proud of myself!  So here are my results for my last week of Gamma Phase!

Weight: 1.5 lb. loss

Chest: 1/4 inch gain ??

Waist: 1/2 inch loss

Arm:  1/4 inch loss (L) 1/4 inch loss (R)

Thigh:  1/4 inch loss (L) 1/2 inch loss (R)

I’m using a new measuring tape which I LOVE!!   It’s call the MyoTape.  I got mine from Amazon, but I’m sure you can find it elsewhere.

I got this as a recommendation off of bantambalance’s  blog.  Thanks for that!  I feel like it is more accurate, so if that means a gain in inches then it is, what it is!  I want to make sure I’m reporting the real deal!  I also highly recommend it!

How Far I Have Come!

Do you guys remember when I first started back in January!?!?!  I had to put down all the weeks  and really look at it to see the progress!  IT’S CRAZY!!!  You guys supported me with your likes, your comments and suggestions!   I have learned so much from you all and I am amazed and what I have achieved so far!

Bye Shaun T (tears rolling down cheek, and sniffles to accompany them)

Focus T25 Alpha, Beta and Gamma are done! That means that I have to say goodbye to Shaun T — at least for a little while.  I think I may do another round of Focus T25 later in the year, but I am excited to do something different.  I had asked you guys to vote on which program I should do next and I’m thankful to those of you who sent me your feedback!

Hello Autumn Calabrese 

And the winner is…..drum roll please…..

So, when I became a Team Beachbody coach I saw this program and was interested in trying it.  It was so popular that I had to wait for it because it was sold out!  I heard that people got excellent results from it and you know I’m all about results now after doing Shaun T’s Focus T25.  This is what I am doing starting May 5th.  The workouts are 30 minutes, including a short stretch so it is right up my alley in terms of time commitment.  If anyone is interested in doing it with my let me know or CLICK HERE!

I will let you guys know how my workouts and eating plan go.  The program comes with a very interesting nutrition plan (which I’m also all about).  It really focuses on portion control through these handy containers to really keep your portions down.   Technically, there is no weekly stats to be recorded for this program (just at the end), but I like the accountability and will continue to load them up.  I’m excited to see how it feels to work with another program after my Focus T25 conditioning.  Fun times!  Wish me luck!

Have a super day!

  1. You are rockin’ it! Excellent job. You have been the most methodical blogger that I’ve read. Your progress proves it! Keep it going and I look forward to your next level!


  2. Wow! Your results are absolutely incredible! Awesome job! I’ll be following your experience with the 21 Day Fix. I’m curious about it, but I don’t think it would be easy for me to do because I’m the lone cook for my family. I’m not sure how I could put together meals for everyone in my household, while also meticulously sticking to the portions for the 21DF. Good luck!

    • Thanks so much! I really need to get my before and after pics up so people can see. I just started 21DF and will tell you how the easy or difficulty the portion control containers turn out to be. I will give you complete honesty on this! By all accounts you should be able to make similar food for you family just potion out your share, but don’t quote me on that until I give you my review! LOL…keep up with Gamma in the meantime. I hear you on the speed 3.0! You are doing awesome!

  3. Those are AWESOME results…was looking at the 21 day fix…but then I heard about chalene’s PiYo…need to save for that one 🙂 Looking forward to seeing your results!!!

    • Thanks so much! Yeah…I am totally going to do PiYo sometime this year. I LOVE Chalene Johnson and have jiggled to Turbo Jam in the past. So far 21 Day Fix is delivering. It’s intense, but if you like a really good workout in a short amount of time, it’s worth a try. I’m not sure if you are a coach or not with Team Beachbody, but if you like Shakeology you should sign up with me as a coach and get a discount. I can talk to you more about if you ever want to know more. I’m looking forward to sharing my results. I’m trying to put pics together to post so look out for it. Thanks again for you comments. I love it! 🙂
