Raising the bar: Operation Fat Blaster!

Hey hey my peeps! Happy humpday to you! Can't believe that this week is already half over. I was planning on working today, but wasn't needed, so got the day off. Always good to have an unplanned day off work right?

With the Chalean Extreme program...I have 5 scheduled workouts each week (3 weight training and 2 hight intensity cardio) and 2 rest days...with one of them being optional where I can thow in some extra cardio if I choose..which I usually do. But yesterday I woke with such severe doms that I decided just to let my body rest and recover some. They are still sore today, but much better. I soaked in the hot tub last night and boy that helped tremendously. I haven't had doms that bad in a long's a good thing..really, no matter how I upped almost all my weights in my last workout, so I expected it.

So, today is be done late this afternoon or early evening. SR has early workdays on Wednesdays, so I wait for her so that we can workout together. I don't mind working out alone, but it is more fun with a partner. We really do push each other to realy "bring it"! No slacking aloud....ha!

Eats have been really clean this week. No further slip ups since over-doing it on Sunday. I have been eating every 2-3 hours throughout the day and each meal has included a lean protein and complex carb and I have been getting in veggies at least for two of my daily meals. Water has been right on...drinking a minimun of 100 oz each day.

Here are a few pics of some of my clean no particular order....for your viewing enjoyment...teehee ;)

3/4 cup of nonfat cottage cheese topped with fresh blueberries and strawberries and a drizzle of blue agave nectar

Tried a new water this week. Metromint...spearment. Minty fresh :D

Yea...I think these should last me a few

1 cup Non fat plain yogurt topped with strawberries and blueberries with a nice healthy spoonful of Trader joes unsalted raw crunchy Almond Butter

Chocolate Mint Cliff Builder Bar....20g's of protein baby!

Ok, so you may be wondering why I called this post "raising the bar"? Well...I decided to join up with Operation Fat blaster and kick my motivation up a notch! Join forces with us and Check out Michelle's Secrets of a Former Fat girl's blog Here to join! We're on a mission to blast the fat!

Keep it clean!


  1. I just love your food photos ... I say it in every single comment here, but it's just so true! :)

    How do you like those Cliff bars? I had some for the first time with my tri and it was yummy!

    Thanks for the shout out for our Team! I think it'll be FUN - I'm trying to really get in character with our Special Ops missions - watch for the first one coming on Sunday!

  2. Congrats to you! Sticking with a program can be hard, but the hardest part is almost always getting started. You're way ahead of the curve. Keep it up!

  3. That's an intense program... good for you!

    What is a dom (doms?)?

  4. I was wondering what doms are too! I've never heard that term.

    I'm nodding my heading and saying "attagirl!" at you taking a break when you knew your body needed it.

    Love them blueberries and strawberries. Summer rocks!

  5. Michelle~ Thanks :D Looking forward to see what you have in store for Sunday :D I really like the cliff builder bars. To get that amount of protein and still taste pretty good is win/win :D

    Mrs. Meyers~ Thanks :D

    Amy~ Thanks :D. I really love the program, it is not boring that's for sure. Routine changes up completey every 30 days. Doms = Delayed onset Muscle soreness. Develops 24-48 hours after working/tearing muscle fiber.

    Alison~ Thanks :D. I know, that's the best thing about summer is the berries and fruit :D

  6. Love all the berries!!

    Good luck with your new program! You can do it!!

  7. Hi Linda! Hope everything is going well! I wanted to let you know that we now have an official Operation Fat Blaster Headquarters!!

    I thought it would be best to have a separate site for our challenge - a one-stop shop that everyone can access and contribute to. It's really going to be as awesome as we make it, and it's open to anyone that wishes to join.

    Please check it out here:

    I'll post a new discussion each Saturday (not Sunday as I previously mentioned - sorry!) with the Special Ops Mission of the Week. Feel free to blog about your mission and progress on your own blog, but come on over to "HQ" to chill out, chat, and have a great time :)

    Hope to see you over there in a bit!
