Week 1: Revolt Now Fitness

This past week I have alluded to a new workout regime that I am on and today is the day for our first link-up and the day I am reviewing and talking everything Revolt. When the idea was first put out there to participate in this blogger opportunity I was a little weary. Let's face it, I'm not always the best blogger and more often than not I tend to fall off the wagon. But I inquired and I thought about it and I figured that I am so in the mood and in the right mind frame of getting in shape right now that maybe this was just what I needed to keep me near my blog, hold me accountable and allow me to participate in an awesome program for 6 weeks!

This past week was a little slow going at first and, I'll be honest, I started a day late. I allowed myself to skip the rest day to catch up and here I am, Friday afternoon, and I am feeling great. The workouts are seriously exactly what I look for in a workout. Quick and intense. Let's face it, with my unpredictable sleeper that I have on my hands, I am not always guaranteed some full hour to exercise so I have to hurry to fit them in and usually that means I am looking for a workout in 30-40 minutes or less.

I had also mentioned a couple of weeks ago that my brother was writing me workouts and while I was enjoying them, it has been really nice to workout with a video. As silly as it sounds, I like having Nicole Huntsman in my living room with me. The other amazing thing about Nicole is that she is a mom too! That is the other reason I was so eager to participate in this amazing opportunity in that it is created by a mom for moms. Or whoever else wants to participate.

The nice thing about the website is that, as they workout all the kinks, it has become really user friendly where it is so easy to log on, find our workout of the day and get it done. Also, meals are laid out a week ahead of time for easy grocery shopping, planning and prepping over the weekend. The meals are actually all really realistic and easy. I have to say we eat fairly clean and healthy as it is around here so the "diet" hasn't been much of a shock. I mean, not reaching for the Cadbury eggs has been a little difficult but those can be saved for the cheat day.

So far I am really enjoying this and it really is about a whole body transformation, not just a fad for a few weeks and then I fall off. It is very community oriented too in that there is a Facebook page that allows all the fellow participants a chance to chat and stay connected. I have enjoyed this first five days and hope to continue for the next 5 weeks!

I was offered a blogger free trial to the Revolt Now Fitness program however all opinions are honest and my own.

Keep up the great work. I haven't followed the meal plan exactly but I sure can feel the burn in the workout. Now if I'd just step up my game in the meals :). You're doing awesome, keep up the good work!
