As we sit down to log our results from our first 90 Day Challenge with ViSalus, I can’t help but think to myself how quickly this time has gone by! I think the concept of passing time is one of the most interesting aspects of human behavior. When you start something like a 90 Day Challenge you think to yourself ” I have to do this for 90-Days?!?!?” and now that it’s almost over it’s more like “OMG it’s been 90 Days already?!?!!” It just goes to show that doing something like this and making an important change in your life is easier and much more achievable than we think it is at the beginning. It also has taught us that health and fitness results are about a whole lot more than the numbers on a scale. Now that we have finished it, here are the results of our ViSalus 90 Day Challenge!
Traveling for a living and continuing to get your workout in can be a bit of a challenge. Recently I found out that my body wanted to add to the challenge of working out on the go by throwing another hurdle my way. It turns out I suffer from AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) which is also known as Altitude Sickness. I was born and raised at sea level, so when I travel anywhere significantly higher than sea level I seem to suffer from this ridiculous sickness while both resting and exercising at altitude.
After struggling through a rough Week 8 (where we had a lot of missteps) and Week 9 (which was basically making up for week 8) we are happy to repost that we are back on the road! On the road to what? Well, this week we are on the road both with fitness and travel! For many traveling, keeping fit and exercising usually don’t mix. For us however, it’s actually one of the times that we find ourselves keeping to our eating plan better and making sure we are doing everything we can to focus on our health and fitness. Read our week 10 weight loss update to see how we stay on the road to fit (literally)!
Anyone who is trying to lose weight typically has one goal in mind, move the number on the scale south. There are a lot of ways to do this, but just moving the scale really shouldn’t be your goal. If you just try to “lose weight any way you can” you run the risk of losing muscle and bone mass along with the fat you are really trying to get rid of. The good news is there are ways to really target your weight loss and turn your body into a fat burning machine! Here are a five tips on maximizing your daily fat burning that I’ve picked up while traveling on the road to fit.
After just over 8 weeks on the ViSalus 90-Day Challenge, we’ve hit our next milestone and have created another set of before and after pictures along with our weight loss update. Our bodies have changed so much in the past 60-Days we both can’t believe how much better we look and feel. The most amazing part though is the fact that so far, it hasn’t been all that hard. There are challenges and pitfalls to any weight loss program, but overall, if 60 days ago you told us we would have these kinds of results, we wouldn’t have believed you. Yet 60 days later, here we are.
I haven’t owned a television in over 3 years. I seem to recall many lost hours sitting in front of the tube, and I can honestly say, I don’t miss it one bit. My husband and I have recently started housesitting and most of the homes we take care of do indeed have televisions. We have found ourselves making dinner and settling in in front of the tube to “relax” after work.
Being a travel blogger is absolutely amazing, until you start trying to lose weight! Most of our readers know that Kenin and I run The Constant Rambler as well. This means that we get to review amazing restaurants and go on fantastic food tours all over the world. This also means that we consume extra calories almost every single day This week was one of those weeks where that happened, big time! Eating as a form of entertainment can really challenge anyone trying to lose weight. Here’s how we made out this week.
I have been overweight/obese for many years. I didn’t start off this way. I was a tiny li’l thing all up until my early twenties. Then I got married and life happened. This year I turned 31 and I knew I had to make a big change in my lifestyle and start getting healthy if I wanted to live a long life.
Weight loss is one of those strange paradoxes in life. We are all ok with the fact that it took years of mistreating our bodies to add on all those pounds, but somehow we want to decide to lose weight, change one small part of our lives, and then watch the pounds melt off like last years snow fall. Unfortunately, unless your smoking meth, thats just not going to happen. It takes a lot of strength, work, and support from a community to make a change in your lifestyle, and that ‘s what the 90-Day Challenge is all about. Sometimes though, 90-Days feels like a really long time. So to make things easier and have a little fun Lauren and I set some mini-goals for Week 7 of the 90-Day Challenge. Read on to see how we did.
