1 month progress picture | Insanity

One month of insanity, with it’s ups and downs, along with a 90% healthy diet gave me this body.

progress picture 1

Now, my problem area was and has always been my stomach hence the reason for it being the focal point of the pictures however, once I complete month two I will post a full body picture.

Also, be mindful that I am also a breastfeeding mom. Why is that important? Because, although breastfeeding alone won’t burn your baby fat away, it does influence how much size you lose over time. I do believe that babies can L-I-T-E-R-A-L-L-Y suck you dry! So eat up mamas out there, whether or not you’re slimming down the way you want to, you still gotta make sure you eat enough just like everyone else but salads alone won’t cut it.

Keep it clean and healthy and get down to sweatin’!!


The art of tucking in!

Do you relate with the picture below?

Is it just your transition into a messy, more lazy person from your long day or is there more to that story?

10477093_826597624017404_3725259453429754247_nAs soon as I laid eyes on this I could relate to it in only one way that has been a part of my life for years!

Tucking in my tummy!

Growing up, I alwaysssss had a punch. That stubborn lower belly fat stuck with me as the years went by and upon entering my teenage years, I became very conscious of it.

I resorted to loose fitting clothes to prevent the bulge from showing and then one day my aunt introduced me to her temporary solution, tucking in.

She referred to it as an art and ever since then, I’ve been calling it the same!

When I would go out, I would consciously suck it in until I got home where I could relax and just let it all go. Until eventually, it became an unconscious habit that I was doing once I was awake. I mastered the art of tucking in! And it worked for me.

Of course it never really resolved my self-consciousness but when I admitted to having a punched tummy, no one would believe me. I became THAT GOOD! 😉 lol So when I told people I was working out to get me a flat belly they were all confused and thought I was making an issue out of something that wasn’t there!

Up until this very day, I still tuck that belly in but now, I have much less to suck up and by the end of the year I will no longer have need for such art as I would be showcasing a flat, toned, sexy tummy.

I am very excited to know what it’s like not having a punch, not having to tuck it in or suck it up! Come December I would relate to this very picture in a totally different way!

What’s your self-conscious struggle? Are you in the same boat?? What crazy arts have you mastered?

Insanity to be continued….

Managing to work out before my friend’s wedding, then my cousin’s wedding and even my trip to Tobago was possible and now that I have my own wedding coming up it’s been near impossible to continue!!

It upsets me to the bone but it’s hard when you have a very active 7 month old to look after mostly on your own while tending to your daily chores, planning for a wedding that’s one month away, working part-time and preparing for school (two months away). So after many attempts I’ve decided to put my insanity on hold and basically do shorter 5-20 minute workouts that I can easily fit into my days.

Now, I ‘m not going to completely stop my insanity workouts, when the time allows I will definitely do them but once the honeymoon is over I’ll be back on the Insanity train!!!!

I am determined to be totally transformed, if not by September, by the end of the year. I must enter 2015, God’s willing, fit and toned!! Extremely sexified!! lol

Also, I do plan on doing another round of Insanity once I’m done. I won’t stop till I get my dream body!! Currently, I am 95 lbs; I aim to range between 100 and 115 and hope to get there by piling on some lean muscle mass and of course I must have that toned tummy of my dreams!

Until I fully get back on track yall go on and continue digging deeper! 😉



My life has become somewhat chaotic in recent weeks gone by. I mean, blogging university challenges are wayyyy out the window, I can’t keep up with all the posting I want to do and most importantly, my insanity workout schedule is whack!! Oh yeah…and it’s driving me to eat all the junk I can get my hands on -_- NOT COOL!

Here I am, getting married in one month and my body is not where I want it to be, mainly, my workout schedule is not where I want it to be.751557

So what’s the reason???

For those of you who haven’t been following, I went on a mini vacation and then got sick, then my daughter got sick so that kept things back. But now, I’m up to my neck in catering work with my mom and got my hands full with my little M so I’m extremely tired. This has been forcing me to form unhealthy eating habits and workout late at night or not at all. 😥 ahhhhhh!!

As soon as I have time to get my shiz together I’m going to prep my healthy food for an entire week and get myself into the habit of getting up pretty early to push my workouts the way they’re supposed to be.

Damn I want that dream body!!!

You guys better not worry though, that’s not the only concern I have because I’ve got some great topics I wanna share with you so give me until Sunday to get everything organized. By then my mum’s order’s should calm down a bit but hey I can’t complain too much because I’m making me some money right! 😀

What’s life without a little chaos right?! Good thing is, my daughter is now in bed between the hours of 9 and 10pm instead of 12am. And I didn’t even have to push her into making that change! Thank you sweet Jesus!! Now, I at least have extra time to sit and do some blogging before bed and not have to be closing my eyes in the wee hours of the morning.

Shiz be crazy up in here! I am reminded of how mum’s become superheros/powerhouses everyday!! It’s a non-stop thing! Not that I’m complaining but it’s serious on-the-job training 24/7. No wonder our mums make it look so easy! It’s been drilled into them!

But hard work brings GREAT rewards! So a midst the chaos, I find peace and joy in the time I spend with my little sugarplum and of course my big one too (my hubby-to-be) ❤ love is such a swwweeeettt blessing!!

Day 17: Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs | Insanity

Today my daughter chose to be a little more than a handful and as usual, it’s was a day that i had lots to do. Soooo, lots of things did not get done…..

But I missed a day already (there goes my upcoming rest day) so I couldn’t stand missing another. Thus, even though I shouldn’t, I worked out before bedtime so here’s the run down.

First of all, this is my second time doing Abs and my first time doing it right seeing that I misinterpreted the whole thing the first time around and did Cardio abs by itself.

It wasn’t the best performance on my behalf but it was a great workout session despite my minor back issues, which I am clearly too young for.

However, I’ve got this issue with what I believe is my coccyx when I’m on the floor doing ab routines like the russian twists, it rubs on the mat/floor and moves side to side which is rather uncomfortable! Can anyone relate?? How do you deal with it? No amount of padding seems to work :/

Anywhooo, seeing that my major issue is my stomach, I’m always pleased to do ab routines knowing that it’s getting me closer to a toned tummy!


Day 16: Plyometric Cardio Circuit | Insanity

keep-calm-beast-mode-on-9Two weeks later I’m finally back at it!! My daughter has recovered from the flu and seems to have amended her bedtime an hour or two earlier 😀 and I’m a bit more settled. With my wedding, yes my wedding, coming up in the month of August I am pumped to get my body in the best shape ever!!

Now, here’s why I LOVE insanity! (another reason to add to the list) After two weeks of no exercising and a horrible diet I’ve managed to keep off the inch I lost on my waist and even keep some condition! I mean, isn’t that great??!! Yes, I was a bit out of it during the workout but wayyyy better than expected.

Currently, I am at 95 lbs which is the lightest I’ve ever been BUT I still have a mushy punch for a stomach and intend on losing it and putting on some lean muscle mass. So my insanity goals are to become fit, gain a flat, toned stomach and build lean muscle.

I am looking forward to some insanely toned legs, a sexy ass, a stomach worth showing off, some calves (I seem to have none), toned arms and feeling awesome on a daily basis!

What a great way to start a new chapter in my life right?? And I mean, after 4 years with my boo it’ll be nice for him to enjoy a sexier me. What woman doesn’t want to feel and look their best; to be a sexy mom and wife! I can’t wait!!

Though, I must ensure that the rest of my insanity journey is continued with the cleanest diet possible in order to gain the greatest results in the space of time left, especially considering my two week lapse. And! Because I had a two week lapse, I’m bypassing my recovery week. This will also ensure that I finish in time for August.

For those of you that are at it, keep at it 😉 Push yaself! Dig deeper everyday!

It feels good to be back!

Beast mode ON!!

Day 15: Fit test 2 | Insanity

Starting where I left off, here I am two weeks later finally posting the results of my last fit test. Now, this was two weeks ago so I was thinking maybe I should have done it all over again to truly reflect my fitness at the moment but then I realized that those results showed my progress after two weeks of Insanity and so why redo it when it’s still an integral part in my progress and reflection.

So, recollecting, I remember going through the test better than the first time around and that in itself felt awesome. I pushed myself, yeah I was out of breath and beat! but I made it.

Here are my results:


Of course, as usual, the power jacks killed me because of the whole squatting thing! It’s damn deadly I tell you!! However, I’m glad I didn’t decrease and really proud of the results overall! I definitely gained some endurance for those two weeks! ❤
