Starting the Supreme 90 DVD workouts

I am so excited to share my first rotation of the year! I really wanted to get into heavy weight training along with eventually running. I thought I was going to do a modified Cathe strength training rotation but found Supreme 90 day workout at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $9.99 How can you go wrong there! I have been eyeing Chalene’s Johnson Chalene Extreme and Beachbody P90x for years but am way to cheap to pay over $100.

The Supreme 90 Day workout comes with 10 dvds featuring personal trainer Tom Holland and , a nutrition plan from clean eating expert Tosca Reno, free online support, & a 90 day support chart. I have been for the most part clean eating and going to use the structure that Tosca recommends.

The work out include Chest & Back; Chest, Shoulders & Triceps; Ultimate Ball; Tabata Inferno; Shoulders & Arms; Cardio Challenge; Core Dynamics; Legs; Total Body; Back & Biceps;. Of course you need a dumbbell and this workout does need stability exercise ball. Right now my heaviest dumbbells are 15lbs so I will need to go out and buy some more. My husband is checking these great bowflex adjustable weights. so we won't need to have weights all over the house.  They are pricey but he thinks it is well worth it.

I am not expecting to get totally buff from doing this for 90 days but want to lose inches in my waist and I would be happy with being 15-20lbs down over the 90 days plus about 4-5  inches in the tummy area.

I have a done a few of the workout so far and they are great. I am really feeling it in my muscles so far. They are very core intensive which is a problem area for me!

Jennifer Rumple Biggest Loser clean eating tips

I am a huge fan of the Biggest loser and also of Jennifer Rumple the season 12 at home winner. I have always felt that I could relate to her since we are fairly close in age. She shared some great simple tips on clean eating and since I have been really trying to “eat clean’ rather than follow a specific diet plan.  Sometimes I over analyze what I should be eating-Jennifer's post kind of shook me back to reality.


1) DO NOT EAT ANYTHING PROCESSED. Anything in a box, a can, a package ... do not buy. Do not eat. You'll be amazed how your palate changes and no longer needs the sugary, salty, fatty stuff for things to taste yummy! Trust me on this! Just give your taste buds time to adjust.
2) Stick to lean meats like chicken, turkey, fish, egg whites. Red meat is okay on occasion, but be sure it's a lean cut and ONLY on occasion.
3) Write down everything you put in your mouth and track your calories all day long. It's the best way to monitor your intake of food ... and know when you've hit your limit and you need to STOP!
4) Complex carbs are okay. Whole foods like apples, carrots, wheat pasta, multi-grain breads/cereals. Our bodies need these carbs because they contain incredible nutrients. I try to limit my carbs in the evening. Remember one of Bob's Harper MANY truths ... "LEAN AND GREEN!"
5) Water, water, water, water. And when you think you've had enough for the day ... have another glass! :) It's key!

Jillian Michaels iFit Workout Card - Lose Weight

I recently bought a new treadmill that has ifit technology. Ifit technology is like having a personal trainer with you . An ifit card is a preprogrammed memory card that you plug into your treadmill and will have 8 weeks of workout and will automatically adjusts the speed and incline of the treadmill. .However you can override the card.   My new proform treadmill came with Jillian Michaels level 1 lose weight ifit card. This is progressive, 8-week program will increase your workout each week

As a Jillian Michaels and Biggest Loser fan who has done her DVD workouts on and off for years, I was really excited to try it. The treadmill  work out is kicking my butt and I am really loving it. I feel like Jillian is right next to me inspiring me to keep going for my fitness and weight loss goals. She has quirky little saying. The Level 1 only card only goes to 3.5 miles per hour but she has you on an incline at 10% so it does get intense Interval training will really works and helps burn the calories.

I would really recommend if you have an ifit compatible exercise machine, I would highly recommend getting an ifit card.  She also has level 2 and level 3 which I am looking forward to trying out once I complete the 8 weeks.
