Revolt Fitness Week 2 - Results post and food prep

Rounding out my second week on revolt I am super excited about the results! I've been super good about following the meal plan and getting in my workouts- even with a sick/teething baby!

I am down:

-2 lbs this week! For total loss of 2.13% of body fat! who-hoo!
And since I started 2 weeks ago I've lost -7" overall (-1.5" this week)

One thing I love about Revolt is the way the meal plan is structured. For each week you eat the same meals everyday for one week. At first, you're kinda like, "wait, what the what?" But after doing it for 2 weeks now. I can honestly say, I'm a fan!

Because my husband and I are doing this together, there is a little extra math up front to figure out exactly how many ounces of chicken, steak, etc. I need to buy. It's not too bad to calc out, but it's so worth it because we are sticking to a budget in our family, so I like to know exactly how much I need to buy. This plan makes it foul-proof.

Next food prep!

Our fridge looks crazy stocked with protein at the beginning of the week!
(Can you say, EGGS! EGGS!! EGGS!!!?)


One of the suggestions is to precook all of the food, measure out in separate storage containers, freeze and reheat for each meal. We did do this for lunch and breakfast. However, when my husband heard I was going to precook his steak he was like, "Whoa, whoa, whoa...slow down there!!" He insists his steak be cooked fresh each night for dinner. So HE came up with a brilliant idea!

We cut up and measure out our steak for the week. I get 4 oz, he gets 6 oz. and using small sandwich bags we portion out each daily amount into separate bags and add a little marinade in each bag. So, the night before we take it out of the freezer and move to the fridge to de-thaw for supper. Then throw it on the George Foreman Grill and we are good to go! It's so easy! And I have to admit, so much better eating it cooked fresh each night too :)

What a smarty-pants!

This is also a great idea for those who buy meat in bulk to save money. Cut up and portion out your meat when you first buy it and then add it to the freezer.


Baggies of red meat labeled with their weight on the bag. 

Be sure to check in every week to see what is happening with Revolt Fitness and hopefully my ever-so shrinking body!

  2. Great tips. I pre-cook lunches and breakfasts too, and some dinners, depending on what they are.

  3. I have never heard of this diet it looks interesting though. I pre sort all our meals for a month and put them in ziplocs in the freezer. So this looks like something I could do, unless its eating the same thing every day. lol I need variety!
    Thanks for stopping by my twice as nice blog hop today.

  5. Congrats on losing lbs!! My husband and I cook our meals and freeze them for the week too. It's usually the same, either chicken and brown rice or chicken and couscous.

    I almost died laughing about the egg situation! It's the exact same situation here! I joke around and tell my husband that we should just get a chicken or two and we won't have to keep buying eggs! Keep up the awesome work, you're such an inspiration!
