No Joke

Yesterday I did Core Synergistics from P90X (day 1 of the Lean program). All I can say is WOW! I thought soreness was a thing of the past! I guess I will be breaking out the P90X results and recovery formula for days like that. I can see a whole new bunch of challenges with this workout. I am looking forward to it for sure. I think I worked every muscle in my body. One day soon I will post some before and after pics from Les Mills Pump. I was happy with my results. I lost a total of 13 lbs several inches from all over. I still have a ways to go, but am very pleased with myself so far. 9 months of pregnancy stretches your body out in all different ways. I don't expect it to bounce back too easily, especially after #3.

If you would like more information on any program I mention in this blog, please email me. I will be happy to share the good, bad and ugly of anything I have experienced.

I'm a Coach

Why wouldn't anyone want to make some extra money? Most people know that Beachbody is capable of helping those who really want it, achieve their fitness goals. Did you know that Beachbody can also help you achieve your financial goals too? Some of us just do it on the side, others are able to quit their full time jobs and pursue coaching full time. Wouldn't that be awesome!? Check out this video and if you would like more information, send me an email.

Getting down to the end of Les Mills Pump. I am excited and nervous about starting P90X in another week. I worry about the length of the workouts mostly. I don't know how I will get 90 minutes of yoga in before work! I wake up at 315am daily to get things ready for the kids and myself, and exercise by 430am. I try and leave for work by 615am. I imagine I can do it. My plan is to prepare the night ahead more than I usually do. This way I won't be bogged down preparing lunches and such. It can be done. If anyone can do it, I can! I always adapt to the situation at hand. I will keep updating the blog as I start P90X :) . I will miss Les Mills Pump and will have to do it again after the 3 months of X. Very exciting!!

Wise Words

When you are "dieting", please make sure you are eating enough food. There sometimes is a fine line between eating too little and eating too much. Imagine you aren't eating enough, you become ravenous later in the day and overeat. Or, you continually under eat and your body thinks you are starving it. What your body then does is hold on to everything it can for dear life. Meaning, your body won't let go of that stored fat you are working so hard to get rid of. Here is an article that talks about eating small meals as opposed to 3 large meals. It really makes sense.

Decide and Succeed

Results don't always happen as quickly as we expect or want. This happens all too often. If you know you are moving more than you were before you started exercising and you know that you are not eating everything and anything in site as compared to before working out.. you should rest assured it will happen. Change doesn't happen over night. As people always said to me "you didn't get this way overnight, it won't go away overnight". I am the poster child for that! I figure that my pregancy from my third child is wreaking havoc on my body! The rest of me has decreased in size and even my stomach has decreased in size also. I would like to see more in the decreasing of size though. I will wait and let it happen from all the hard work I am putting into it.

Once you decide on a program, you need to commit to it for the allotted time. If it's a 3 month program, you really need to stick with it for the 3 months. Don't give up half way or even almost half way. Why sell yourself short!? One day, you will look back at the "old you" and wonder how you ever found yourself that way! Why didn't you do something sooner?

If you are still thinking about fitness, and you know you want to try something, check out my site and just look around. There are no strings attached. I only share Beachbody® because I love it. I have a full time job outside of this and choose to do this in my spare time. Most of the people you find involved in Beachbody® share my love for the company. Until next time :)

So good for you

Shakeology® is both delicious and nutritious. I cannot go 1 day without my chocolate, almond milk, banana shake. There are tons of different recipes available. Play around with the amount of liquid you add to your shakes. Personally, I add a little more than the typical 8 oz called for in most recipes. I also add cinnamon to my shake. Cinnamon has been shown to help regulate blood sugar, making it a great choice for diabetics and hypoglycemics alike. This allows for steady energy throughout the day.Cinnamon aids in the lowering of LDL (bad cholesterol). Lowering LDL reduces the risk for cardiovascular disease. Google the health benefits of cinnamon and you will see several more reasons to add a dash of cinnamon to your shakes!

Count your calories. There are several aps available for your smart phone. They allow you to scan barcodes of the foods you eat and calculate calories for the day. They will break it down into total calories and then fat calories, carbohydrates and proteins. This serves as a true eye opener as to how much you really do eat! Figure how many calories you should be eating in a day for your weight and activity levels. There are a few equations you can use.Total Calorie Needs Example If you are sedentary, multiply your BMR (1745) by 1.2 = 2094. This is the total number of calories you need in order to maintain your current weight. If you want to lose fat, a useful guideline for lowering your calorie intake is to reduce your calories by at least 500, but not more than 1000 below your maintenance level. For people with only a small amount of weight to lose, 1000 calories will be too much of a deficit. As a guide to minimum calorie intake, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends that calorie levels never drop below 1200 calories per day for women or 1800 calories per day for men. Even these calorie levels are quite low. See your Doctor or a Nutritionist for more information.
