Preparation is the key to success, and with REV32, it's no different. Sunday is slotted as our prep day for the week. It's time we use to get the shopping done, chop veggies and fruits, and prepare some food for the week. It truly is a vital step in the program and it worked out perfectly for me this week, as I also spent the day getting the kids ready to go back to school and me back to work.
Spring break's the perfect time to relax. Kids are off from school for a week and parents take time off work. Add a trip to the mix and you've got the ideal recipe for a quality family getaway. For me, though, this spring break meant REV32.
Week 2 of REV32 means … DAIRY! I'm excited that I'll be able to reintroduce dairy into my diet because it means I can eat Greek yogurt and string cheese again. The program required us to do without it for the first week to see if we were allergic or intolerant to it. I know I'm not either of those, but I still wanted to follow the guidelines.
I'm one week removed from the REV32 program and while I'm definitely sad it's over, I'm so glad I did it because it was something I did for myself. I worked out a lot, I sweat a lot, and I learned a lot throughout this amazing experience.
This week was the eighth and final week of REV32. It seems that when things are about to come to an end, we tend to tap into the reserves to give that extra push and I'm no different. I gave it my all in the workouts this week because I really wanted to take full advantage of the time left.
Entering the final two weeks of REV32, I had promised myself that I would finish strong. Unfortunately and rather frustratingly, I got off to a rough start this week. I came down with the flu and had to miss two workouts because of it. With my friend's father's funeral services to be held during the week, I focused on getting enough rest to recover my energy and strength.
