Fitness Blender Results

Exercise... It WORKS!

Fitnessblender(.com) was/is/forever will be my game changer!


Hello all! I am not as tough as this picture depicts.  I was feeling pumped after a workout.  A workout I do 5-6 days per week...in my home...for FREE!  Yep- I work out for free!  If you have issues with the gym... whether it be getting there, the expense or just embarrassment... follow my story and find out how muscles can be FREE! Yep...one more time...Free!





I am about to show my {LEAST} favorite picture of myself...





Ready....










This is me post baby #6.  I know, I know! Six kids!  I was miserable in my post baby body, though.  I am a Trim Healthy Mama and ate right!  100% on plan.  This was a stressful time as we sold our home we thought we'd live in forever.  Our family out grew it and we had to move.  I had no time for exercise with packing, moving and nursing a baby.

(Even though I felt okay by eating right, I wanted more results than just weight loss)



Once we sold our home we had to live in a rental while our new home was being built.  It was a tiny 1200 ft house, housing 8 people.  I found Fitnessblender on the web one day!  I had no time to go anywhere to work out!  What they offered seemed like it might work... I had to take my laptop in the garage and sweat out there.  There was literally no room to sweat in house through the sea of children! 


I started Fitnessblender and saw results fast!  Here is a few months between eating right and eating right paired with exercise!
(notice the lack of belly over the seatbelt!) 



(My oldest took the picture on the left.  I couldn't believe my belly hung over my seatbelt! This is when I started Fitnessblender!  Several months later I had my son take another picture as motivation to myself that I was headed in the right direction!)




More results!

So now comes my FAVORITE before and after pictures!  
THE BELLY!!!

I have a ton of room to talk and am a complete expert on.... the belly! As mine has been stretched out SIX TIMES!  I feel like I'm qualified in this area to say... "YES YOU CAN!"  Yes you can have a flatter stomach after kids and weight loss!  Yes you can have a trim waist!  Here is my before and after belly pictures that I a most proud to share!

(one week post baby #6)

(About 3 months after baby #6.  I was 100% on plan with Trim Healthy Mama.
Going down on the belt!)






Look now.... This took a year!  It really did!  Hard determination.  Working out with a plan.  Fitness blender rules my mornings 5-6 days a week!  I never miss a workout!  



This is a before and after of 3 months!

These pictures speak volumes AND I did this for FREE!  No gym.  I worked out on my own schedule and not on a gym schedule.  I have a set of dumbbells and a yoga ball!  That's it!

Before...


After...


I'm not afraid to lift heavy weights and neither should you! 



(I love flexing my guns, can't you tell?!)


I went from this:

to this:


In about a year!

  1. This is just what I've been looking for! Thank you for inspiring me. I'm a mother of five, this side of Eternal life. I have been doing Fitness blender off and on since 2011 and with being pregnant was not able to get to where I wanted...which is fine because I love children! I am on Trim Healthy Mama too and have been working out with Fitness Blender for about 2 weeks. You look amazing and I just know it's how our body's were meant and designed to be...strong and healthy!

  2. You have made my day! Thank you, thank you! It's nice to meet other FB fan! Isn't it awesome?! Good luck on your journey! It's important for mamas to have muscles and endurance. I think about all the lifting of toddlers, caring laundry baskets, cleaning, trucking it through multiple grocery stores... We gotta keep up health and strength if we want to survive. My heart aches for moms that are overweight and have to do all these things! So difficult! Have you done any programs? I am on the FB Flex right now, throwing in some weighted leg days, HIIT and abs! It's my stress reliever for sure! Hope to see you around more :)

  6. That was a great inspiration!! I am,myself a FB fan and have lost 35 pounds with them.But being in college, due to stress and more work, I regained about 20 lbs now :(.. I often feel stressed out by seeing my body. All this weight which I gained gets stored in my arms.I desperately want to start my journey with FB again. I am truly fascinated by your muscles. I just want to know how much weight you are using. I have pairs of 10kg,6kg,4kg and 2kg dumbbells.Would that suffice? Please help me.

    1. I'm sorry you are stressed out! I know the feeling! Raising 6 kids over here. If I were in your spot I would map out a plan. 2-3 days of weight training and 2-3 days of HIIT and/or Cardio. Get online and try to figure out your BMR and TDEE. You need to know how much you are burning and then make sure you eat less than that. My fitness pal is a great app! If you eat more than you burn, you'll never get ahead in the weight loss game! It's all about the math. I lift VERY heavy, squatting 100lbs. You don't have to go that heavy but you need to challenge yourself. Doing bicep curls with 5lb weights just won't cut.
      -Clean up your diet (Do a search on Trim Healthy Mama)
      -Get more rest in your life (Cortisol is important)
      -Weight train first and add in HIIT and cardio
      -Drink LOTS of water! (more than you think)
      -Don't stress! (it doesn't do a lick of good ;)
      You can do it!!!!!

  8. Thank you. I did FB for years. I bought all their programs. It was great. I have moved onto a more challenging program called Cathe. I am getting into more body building and less weight loss.

  9. I lost 7 pounds during the 21 Day Fix. I could have lost more, but I had some salt issues in the last week. If I eat to much salt, I don't lose weight. I retain water like crazy, but once the water is gone, I haven't lost any weight. It sucks, but that's the story of my life. I lost a half inch in my chest, a half inch in my right right and a half inch in my left bicep. Weird, but true. My numbers aren't very impressive, but I hadn't lost any weight in a few months. I finished 21 Day Fix in January and I think it was the previous September when the scale had moved last, so while 7 pounds isn't crazy impressive in 21 days, I was thrilled. 21 Day Fix was what I needed to jump start me back into weight loss. I wasn't perfect with the nutrition either. I ate raisins in my salad and I ate my Graze.com snacks each work day, but I still lost weight. You don't have to be perfect to lose weight with this program. You just need to be better than you were. I hadn't had any problems working out for the previous few months, but I had problems controlling my nutrition. 21 Day Fix helped me get that under control. I was eating healthy meals, but I was eating a lot of junk food for snacks. Doing this program got me to kick my sweet tooth (again). It's just what I needed when I needed it.

Snickers Smoothie

ONE WORD.... Snickers!  Yep!  Makes your mouth and mind BUZZZZZZZZ!
This recipe was graciously shared to me by a trim healthy mama.  I am always skeptical when something says 'healthy' and has a name brand tagged on it.  Like brownies made with cottage cheese.  Or how about 'Doritos' kale chips!  C+C Music Factory comes to mind with "Things that make you go hmmmmmm!"  
BUT.................
This really has a Snickers-ish flare to it.  And- I love it.   Go all out on your extract.  I have friends that get theirs at Walmart, but quality verses quantity wins me over.  You usually have to use more of the cheap stuff to get that punch of flavor.  My favorite is Bakto.  The other spotlight in this Snickers Shake is Glucomannan.  You can read its wonderful qualities here.
Snickers Smoothie
Into your favorite blender add the following: 
1 cup of Unsweetened Almond milk (or if you're in heavy weight loss mode, 1/2 cup of almond milk and 1/2 cup of water) 1 scoop of…

NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}

I had a small amount of canned pumpkin left in my frig and created these on a whim. Not to build them up too much, but they remind me of those donut holes you buy in a box. I'm gonna steal the THM saying and say... Own It!! Make this your own. I just made these on the fly, but you can certainly put whatever spin you want on them! I love how the sisters encourage us to be our own chefs! Get creative & Make it work 
NO BAKE....Pumpkin Bites {S}: 1 c baking blend (homemade or THM brand)
1/2 c pure can pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
Splash caramel extract *optional, if you don't have it's okay*
Pinch of salt
1 Tb almond butter
1/2-1 Tb pumpkin pie spice, depending how spicy you like it
1 Tb coconut oil
Sweetener *the amount is gonna be questionable. There are so many different kinds out there. I make my own which probably can be compared to the Gentle Sweet. I did about 1/3 cup but dumped more in making it like 1/2 cup...BUT...I like super duper sweet stuff. Just taste as you go!  Erythrito…

The Shrinker

A drink that shrinks your waistline, gives you energy, improves your health and fights cancer? What in the world? Yes, it's all true!  Oolong tea can be purchases online, found in Asian markets and I even saw it at Publix.  




SHRINK the FAT...

**** Oolong improves vitality... prolongs lifespan... combats the aging of skin... treats eczema and rashes... prevents heart disease and cancer… reduces high blood pressure... it's a physical and mental stress reliever... strengthens teeth and prevents tooth decay... improves brain power... you get the picture. Best of all it makes a scrumptious drink called the "SHRINKER" and you get all these extras and more thrown in for good measure.  Oolong contains antioxidants that powerfully destroy free radicals. Research conducted by Dr Kenichi Yanagimoto from the university of California, showed that only 15 days of Oolong tea drinking enabled an incredible 50% reduction in free radicals.
Another study conducted by the academy of Tradi…
