Fit Girl Detox – Fit Girls Challenge check-in

Whew week one done, and for a quick update I am down 2.5 pounds, not bad for a rocky start at best.  This week I’m going to give you a quick review,  and update on what’s to come.

Ok down to the nitty gritty:

Week one: On a whole I did okay – not great but, better than previous attempts and even on the days that I wasn’t on plan I made the best choices I could for where we were at.

Food: This plan has 3 breakfasts, 6 snacks/desserts, 3 lunches and 3 dinners  – I did eat at least one of each of the recipes (if not necessarily in the order listed), I was really impressed with how well the food tasted, the small amount of prep time, and truely the ease of exceptions if you wanted to change things up.  For a quick dip into the fit girl pool this is definatley a great starting place.

Exercise: There is no set exercise plan in this book, I believe it was originally designed for the Fit Girl intercessions (which we’re in right now) and there are a few plans posed on IG for those to follow or to keep up with their own.  I decided to try Beach Body on Demand for the duration of this series and I’m currently working through a rather campy plan called Yoga Ballet Booty – its’ hilarious but exceptionally fun and quite honestly challenging for me and my sedentary life.

How I currently feel: Right now I feel really good, I don’t give up sugar completely when I’m on these plans but I do cutback considerably, I’m almost past the cravings, with the exception of salt!  Man give me a salt lick and I am good to go!!!!! Other than that I’m really listening to my body in regards to sleep and exercise and so far I think I’m making a lot of progress internally, if not based on the numbers on the scale.

What’s next: I am starting the 28 day jumpstart challenge this week, with a lot of modifications – I’ll go into that during next weeks posts.  I’m back on IG with my fitgirl handle, Sarahgetfit77 – feel free to follow my journey with me. If you have a Fitbit and want to be friends comment below with your email and I’ll friend you, I try to host at least one work week hustle challenge a week, and if you want to see what my daily life looks like your’re welcome to follow me on Snapchat: Slkirkland – as you can see I was up before dawn this morning as part of my routine.


Until Next week – XoXo – Sarah

28 day jumpstart challenge – 1/4/16

Tis that time of year again, or is it really?  We had a challenge at work for the month of December not to gain any weight over the holidays.  For once I managed to keep up and actually lose a little bit too.  I’ve been working hard recently to remember what my trigger points are, how binge watching TV leads to binge eating salty foods; or my favorite, eating my feelings.  So when I got the email from Fit Girls last week about their first of the year challenge and really their first half of the year challenge I thought, I’m in a better spot than I’ve been in a while, why not give it a shot. So here on Sunday night, I’m getting my food prep together, and thinking about all my goals for this challenge, this month and quite possible (something I haven’t done in a long time) this year!

Before I get too far, let me just throw this out there – I will not be posting recipes, or workout plans from any of the fitgirls books – If I think I’m making something far enough from an original recipe on my own (I will be happy to share), or from another website, blog, location, I will post credit it to it so you can get it for yourself.  I believe the creators of the Fitgirls movement have worked hard and deserve to have credit and proprietary ownership of their work.

So here I am again, week one of the 28 day challenge and this time, I’m feeling really good about it, I know the last few times I had started I was complaining about how boring the food was on this first cycle, but, since then I’ve started prepping my lunches a few times a week, and I for the most part eat the same breakfast every week day so this really isn’t as much of a stretch for me anymore. Exercise will be my hurdle this go round!

As in previous cycles on my blog, I’ll give you a breakdown once a week (Monday) of each day’s progress, how I feel, my weight, and food porn 😉 – if you interested in following me on my journey I have a special IG account: @sarahgetfit77, I post to snapchat everyday: slkirkland and if you have a Fitbit and want to be friends my email is ss9286@att.net – let me know where you saw me on the invite so I know who you are.

Day 0 meal prep:

Ok I’ll be honest, I don’t really like the Cherry pie fridge oats, and it’s really cold out at the moment so I’m breaking down the components of breakfast (oatmeal) and a mid morning snack (yogurt with a little extra fruit).  I haven’t made them yet but I usually make my oats and the last little bits of prep before I go to bed.


So I’m making up a batch of brown Jasmine rice


And some awesome smelling roasted veggies for the week – this week I have golden beets, leeks, tomatoes, zucchini and mushrooms – I like to make a rainbow of colors with my veggies, and roasting is a great way to try different varieties of veggies, for instance I learned this year I really like golden beets – they’d smoother tasting than red ones and don’t leave you with that awkward bathroom conversation later (if you catch my meaning)

lastly I’m boiling some eggs and searching for a good red lentil recipe – everyone wants you to eat beans, and I just don’t like them so I substitute with other legumes (lentils being one of my favorite and this time red since they’re again a rainbow of color on my plate).

I wish you the best of luck this week and will catch up with you next Fitgirl Monday!
