I'm new to the workouts but I really liked Luc 180.
Most of the stuff I've done requires a yoga mat, a set of lighter and heavier weights (I have 5 lbs. and 2 lbs.), and a yoga ball. Others I've seen need a medicine ball, a stepper or kettlebells. I've seen something about a pullup challenge, and I'm guessing that requires a pullup bar or something, but I'm not entirely sure. My mat was $15, my weights were on sale for about $14 for a pair, and my ball was a packaged thing that was about $20, all at Target. I needed them stat, but I'm sure they can be found cheaper.
I just went to the store and got some Ignite friendly ingredients. Someone mentioned in a previous question I asked that there is such thing as stevia soda and it was confirmed that stevia is ok on Ignite. I got Truvia (and coconut creamer because I WILL have tasty coffee tomorrow) and Zevia soda. Both have the ingredient erythritol. Erythritol isn't listed as a sneaky sugar or artficial sweetener, but is it Ignite friendly?
So far I've had Qdoba and Jimmy Johns and I've been able to stick with Ignite. At Qdoba we're allowed either black or pinto beans, pulled pork, the ranchera sauce, most of the salsas, and guacamole. I had an unwich at Jimmy Johns that was lettuce wrapped with no cheese or mayo. Just pay attention to what's in the food and look on the restaurants website before you go to see if they provide nutritional and ingredient info.
I don't believe in weighing yourself everyday, so I do it weekly. I did do a sneak weigh in after 2 days and I had already lost a pound, but that could have been water weight. The best way to weigh yourself is once a week, on the same day, at the same time. I typically do it on Tuesday mornings before I shower for work.
Skip the bun. Load up on veggies at meal time. Use olive oil instead of vegetable oil or butter. Stay away from words on menus like creamy or glazed. All great things I heard watching the Ignite info videos! I'm really missing my creamy though...
I'm literally addicted to Diet Pepsi and it's going to be my major weakness on this plan. I usually drink water at work and I'm trying to stick to water when I go home, but it's hard. When I drink coffee there's usually cream and sugar and I really don't like the taste of tea. So, that said, what can I drink? I had a Vitamin Water Zero today and I read the label and it looked ok. I just can't live on only water, I might go crazy.
Ahh, I looked and it only has 5 grams of sugar if you add the corn salsa. So it's under 10 grams, which I'm assuming is ok?
So my company is attached to a mall in Downtown Milwaukee. I'm used to going out to eat and not bringing lunch, but for days when I'm too crazy in the morning to make a meal, eating lunch elsewhere is critical. There's a salad place that I never tried that I'm going to venture to today, yet I'm not sure if the salad dressings will be ok or not. BUT, we do have Qdoba and I can get a naked burrito with no rice, but with beans, pork, any salsa, ranchera sauce, lettuce and avocado with no gluten, soy or dairy. I can't find anything about sugars, but is this ok on this plan?
Answering my own question if anyone else in Milwaukee is doing Ignite: Trader Joes by Bayshore (or in Madison), Outpost on KK in Bayview, any Woodman's, or Whole Foods by Columbia St. Mary's/UWM. I do not recommend Pick n' Save, as it took 2 hours to find many of the ingredients for Ignite meals with very little luck.
My husband and I are starting Daily Burn and I'm doing ignite and he's just following with me. We live in Milwaukee where cheese and beer are king! So, this could be difficult for us.
Gluten free is becoming more popular but is hard to find. Is anyone having trouble finding things like almond and coconut flour?
I started Ignite in April, but then went on vacation and fell off the wagon. I'm back on and I tried making my second shake. I'm not a wake up early and get things done before work person. I'm a night owl so every extra minute I can sleep is important, so I've never actually had time to make breakfast before.
I've now made my second shake and I could barely choke down the first half...again. The grittiness is unbearable, and the taste seems really off, and there's a really bad aftertaste.
I'll also add that I've never had a protein shake before in my life. I thought I may have read a tip to make it less gritty, but I can't find it now. Can I double up on water and fruit to make it less gritty and more flavorful?
I'm restarting Ignite after a month of craziness. I just opened my Fuel today and made the Pina Colada smoothy, but was there supposed to be some form of a scooper inside? How much is an actual "level scoop" of fuel?
I did a web search for gluten, dairy, sugar free recipes and got some good idea, but the most lucrative thing I've done is by some "light" cooking cook books and go through and pick out the ones that are Ignite friendly or ones that I can easily modify by changing a few of the ingredients.
I did another sneak weigh in today and I'm down almost 4 lbs., more importantly, I've lost over 5 inches overall.
