I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things to do in the Summer is to sit by the fire and make S’mores with my kids. The problem is that it doesn’t always fit into my healthy eating plan. Instead of feeling deprived (and Hangry!) I searched for alternative solutions to my cravings and came up with this life-saver. It really does taste like Summer. (If you haven’t given Chocolate Shakeology a try and would like to- just give me a shout! Happy Summer!
I started the 21 Day Fix Extreme program yesterday and my first day impression is LOVE!!!!
I felt so incredibly strong doing Day 1 Plyo Extreme Fix. I was able to complete it without modifying (thank you Shaun T and Insanity Max: 30) and had an incredible feeling of accomplishment when I was done. For me, I needed that boost of confidence, because Insanity Max:30 wasn’t for me. I did a month of it prior to the scheduled start of this Challenge and while it is an awesome workout, going for failure just made me sad. I know that that is the purpose and to get a little better each time, but at this point in my life I need to feel successful on a daily basis. Ken is totally rocking Max:30 and I can’t wait to share his after photos with you in two more weeks. I will revisit it when I am mentally prepared.
Back to 21 Day Fix Extreme. Kicking off with plyometrics was an awesome introduction for me. I love this kind of training. I am not a fan of cardio for cardio’s sake, so I appreciate this change up for Mondays. It was intense and believe me, my booty was S-O-R-E afterwards all day! What I wasn’t expecting was the soreness in my calves in the morning. I have very strong legs and thought I could calf raise all day, but apparently I am not so well conditioned LOL!
Nutritionally- I am following the Countdown to Competition Plan and made it through Day 1 just fine. Disclaimer: I do splash a bit of cashew milk in my coffee and will be weaning to black but it is unsweetened and 25 calories for 8 oz, so I think that will do. I did have 2 Shakeology shakes (chocolate, 1 tsp PB & water) since I am finding it challenging to get 6 reds in during the day. I also have killer cravings, so this saves my butt! I may correct course on that later if I am not seeing results.
Day 1 in the books and I am a happy girl! See you tomorrow for Day 2
Hi! My name is Jennifer and I am a Health & Wellness Coach. I am also a teacher. I would like to invite you to join me for a very special course that, if you follow the lessons spelled out simply for you, WILL ABSOLUTELY help you make the changes necessary to create lasting habits of health and vitality in your life.
This course is about finding success in achieving our health and fitness goals and what it really takes to earn it. It’s time we learned the truth. We’ve been lied to for too long. There is no magic bullet, no secret formula, no quick fix. We don’t lose 30 pounds in a week, rub decades off our faces with a cream, erase cellulite with a pill, or find lasting success with any other scheme that sounds just too good to be true.
It would be great if we could buy our success, self-esteem, health and well-being in a neat little package with the click of a button and 2 day shipping from Amazon. But, that’s not how it works. We are constantly bombarded with increasingly outrageous claims to get fit, get younger, get sexier… all overnight with little effort and even less support. These repetitive messages have distorted our sense of what it really takes to succeed. We’ve lost sight of the simple but profound fundamentals of what it takes to be successful. I’ve heard it said that No one can do your pushups for you.
What I can do is support you, encourage you and hold you accountable. I can TEACH you to set realistic goals and follow through. I can give you a map and be your partner on the road to health. Give me 30 days and I will teach you to take control of your health and fitness. You will learn how to eat, what to eat and when to eat. You will learn how your small choices and daily habits influence your health and well being and you will get the TOOLS that you need to make lasting change.
The best part about it is that this course is absolutely FREE for a limited time. All you need to do is purchase the course materials and show up ready to take action.
