Mamavation Monday 1/17

Life has been different lately. I am trying to get myself into some kind of a schedule with working, working out, house stuff, and other things. I have also been trying to quit smoking! I am down to about 2 a day!! I have also given up coffee (or should I say I have only had it twice in two weeks).

I had a OB appointment last week and I talked to her about my hypothyroidism. I just still don't feel right. I am still so tired and could sleep almost all day and still feel tired. I told her that I don't think I am on a high enough dosage. She told me that she wanted to check my levels and then if they still seem ok, then she is referring me to a specialist! I have also been doing some research on what I should and shouldn't eat. Here are the things that I need to avoid Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, peanuts, pears, pine nuts, soybeans, kale, mustard, peaches and turnips. I should also add that I am going dairy free as much as possible. I knew a few months ago after I did an experiment: I did not eat dairy products for one week, after that week I slowly introduced it back and got some extreme bloating. As a child I was allergic to dairy, but thought I out grew it, guess not. The last few weeks I have been eating dairy and have felt like crap. So, one of my goals is to not eat dairy.
Week 3 of Turbo Fire and I am so in love with it! My favorite so far is all the HIITs. That is High Intensity Interval Training, you go as hard as you can form anywhere between 30-60 seconds and then you recover for the same amount of time, then do another HIIT! It's so much fun. 

For the last 2 months my weight has just stayed in the 149-152 range and I am so ready to just throw these pounds! Alot had to do with the holidays and not eating as well as I know I should be.

Here is my Turbo Fire Schedule for the week:

Fire 45 EZ
Stretch 10

Stretch 10




Tone 30


Fire 45 EZ

Core 20

Weight: 151.4

These are my before pics for Turbo Fire.

  • Don't eat dairy
  • Drink at least 64 oz of water

Have a great week everyone! Can't wait to party Mamavation style tonight and find out who the new Mamavation Mommas are gonna be!!

I also have issues with dairy but in a weird way. I can eat yogurt, ice cream and cheese but not milk. Best of luck to you as you meet your goals this week!

Get you a working list of what you CAN eat. Focus more on what you can do! It looks like you are kicking abs on that Turbo work out. Way to work it girl. Hang in there. You know we are all here for you. Do you take any vitamins or Omegas? They do wonders for my energy level.
