3 Month #Cinchpiration Update

Summer is over and my family and I are trying to get back on our routine. I admit that it has been a great challenge with myself this past Summer to keep on track with healthy foods and the Cinch Program. I have done well in the last 3 months but of course as I mentioned last month it had been tempting at times to overcome all the goodies and indulge in the foods that have been in front of me at many Summer BBQs, parties, get togethers and dinners out.  
As tough as it was, I have maintained my dedication to the Cinch Program. 
I have made some extreme changes in my diet, some more so than others in the last few months even before I started Cinch. I admit there are still many days where temptation gets the best of me. 
I have started doing double workouts this month, not everyday but at least 3-5 times a week. I am sick of this plateau that I have hit. I have been eating right, sticking to my program plan and still haven't been losing the weight I've been wanting to. It's the second time in the 3 months I've hit this plateau and I have to say it hurts sometimes. I have been taking my butt to the gym in the evenings, doing the Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred daily in the mornings. I also have been doing many of the challenges posted via the Cinchspiration for Bloggers Group as well as on Pinterest.
My favorite shakes this month have been:

Chocolate Banana 
  • ice 
  • water
  • half a banana
  • chocolate Cinch powder

Banana Avocado Vanilla
  • ice
  • water
  • half a banana
  • a tablespoon of avocado
  • vanilla Cinch powder
I often change it up by adding lots of veggies like kale and spinach. When I'm feeling the urge to get everything in at once, I have strawberries, bananas, kale, spinach, blueberries, apples, lemon...whatever I have on hand. 
So as I end my 3 months I only have one goal...to finally see MORE results by within the next few weeks. I have vented my frustrations out to the women of Cinchspiration and many have helped and given me their insights. Many say I need to change my routine a little in meals and in workout. Aside from the 30 Day Shred, I also workout at the gym, Zumba, circuit training at the gym and run/walks. So I think I vary my workouts very well. As for my Cinch meals, I admit that daily breakfast and lunch meals are fairly customary day to day. I usually have a shake for breakfast, meal bar for lunch and a sensible dinner. That's what I've been doing for the last 3 months. Yes, sometimes I did have a sensible meal for lunch and shake for dinner, but for the most part it was easier for me to have full dinners with the family. But I'm willing to try anything so here it is....I'm still going strong!!

This month's stats: No changes anywhere! {sigh}
Total weight loss: -11.3 lbs
Weight: 141.7
Waist: 31
Hips: 38
Thighs: 24
Arms: 11
Chest: 32.5
Neck: 14  

On that note....I'm off to the gym!!!


  1. I have kale at home.... maybe I'll add that to my shake! How does it taste? Do you add anything else?

    I'm on that silly plateau too and I hate it here.

    1. I think it barely tastes, others say it has a somewhat of a bitter taste. But with all the fruits you add to your shakes it will mask the bitter taste, if any. I add spinach, banana, blueberries, kale and sometimes a scoop of peanut butter.
