Revolt Blogger ~ Week 3 Dieting And Young Children=A Very Challenging Combo

Pin It
So here I am in week 3 of the Revolt Fitness Program by Nichole Huntsman.
I'm gonna be honest,
(some people may find it a fault to be honest in everything you say, but that's
just how I live) 
but if you ever tried working out with little ones under you, or a million 
other things that can (and do) pop up to throw a wrench in your fitness routine
or dieting, 
then you know what I mean.

The Revolt program does work, and pre making all of your food for the week
helps you stay on the plan & not stray, but my biggest question is......
What do you feed your children when you are on a fitness program like Revolt?
I mean my two older children (ages 14 & 8) go with the flow
and eat whatever we put on their plate.  
However, my younger two (ages 3 & 2)......not so much.
So, I don't always cook all of my food for the week, because
well I am at home, so I'd rather cook my meals 2-3 days at a time.
My husband is doing the plan with me, just to share in the experience 
and give me another perspective, a man's point of view shall we say?
Anyways, that is where we find the biggest problem with being strict to
a plan.  We are a family of 6, on my husband's income & 2 of our children eat like adults.
We have been shopping at Trader Joe's the last few weeks we have been on the Revolt
program, and then we still have to go to Publix for our meats, eggs, milk,
and any other produce we want, and our grocery bill has gone from
$150 a week to $300. That's a huge jump when you're trying to stay in a budget.

I am finding it hard to keep up with the diet, since we can't really plan or prepare, as we don't get the next week's meal plan until a day or two before the next week starts.  This plan is great for single men & women because it's easy and you get results fast! I just don't see it being sustainable for me,
as much as I want it to be. When you have young children, or a large family (yes & yes)
you either need more planning or a meal plan that works for the whole family.

There's also the issue of trying to find time to workout when you have a large family.  Whether it's trying to schedule it around nap time or getting up before everyone else, but let's face it, that doesn't always happen when you have kids.
Just take your time and give it your all (or all you can that day) and you will reach your goal...
We will reach our goals!

Much Love

  1. Fellow Revolt Blogger here :) I've been doing a separate meal plan for my three kiddos and my husband and I are on the meal plan together... We have been able to get all our groceries just at Sam's and Wal Mart so that we keep the food budget in check ;) It has been a challenge but hubs and I are seeing results so we'll stick with it. Good Luck and I hope you're able to find the right balance for you and your family!!!
