Revita5 Food and Fitness Transformation: This is My Before.

Disclosure: While this is an unpaid post, I did get a special blogger deal on the Revita5 Group Challenge. But here’s the thing: I’m still going to be doing this along with everyone else, and my struggles, successes, and opinions are, as always, my own.

Listen, this is not my first ride on the Body-Cleanse Train. I’ve done the Brightspring 10-day Detox (which went well) and a Juice Cleanse (which didn’t).

Clean eating, superfoods, and organic foods are not new concepts for me at all. So why did I wake up Monday morning and decide to do the Revita5 Group Challenge Food & Fitness Transformation?

Basically, the same reason anyone, anywhere decides to make a change: my jeans are too tight.  I enjoyed the holidays – a lot. But now it’s April, and I’m still eating and drinking like it’s New Year’s. The problem is, though, my energy levels are lagging. I’m used to feeling bouts of exhaustion that sync up with my monthly cycle, but I’ve been feeling tired all the time.  I realized that things that started as occasional indulgences – a soda, a chocolate bar – these things were becoming a regular part of my day.

While my home is stocked with healthy food, I began a part time job out of the home this year: a job where I am confronted with doughnuts, bagels, and vending machines full of sugary junk every day.

I signed up for a 5K in May, which I thought would be a good way to force myself to run more. But I know that what I am putting in my body is not giving me the energy I need to keep up with three jobs and two kids.

Revita5 has been on my radar for a while, since I follow them on Instagram (they have a great, super-encouraging IG feed!), and they even asked me to try it out a while ago. I wasn’t ready then, but I am now.

I’m ready to start feeling better, filling my body with clean, healthy fuel, and having energy to do the things I want and need to do. Even though weight loss is not my #1 goal, I feel compelled to share a before pic:

And also — you can totally have coffee AND wine on this plan. I know because I checked the FAQ before I signed up.

This may not be everyone’s bag, but I appreciate that Revita5 is all focused on listening to one’s own body. The program includes audio meditations, a weekly commitment (week one is “Confidence”) and a Facebook group dedicated to mutual support. Frankly, for me this is a bonus. I like the body-mind-spirit approach. For me, a holistic approach works better than an arbitrary set of “rules” and calorie-counting (Revita5 includes neither).

And yes, Revita5 does cost $249. Yes, it’s steep. But, it forces you to actually commit to it, if you’re shelling out a couple Benjamins.

Plus, this is what you get at sign up:

So far (I’m on Day 3), I love the app. Everything I need to follow REVITA5 is there, and I can take it with me.

Stay tuned for my progress!
