Hi Folks,

Today, like yesterday was pretty good. My energy levels were higher and can’t complain at all.
Here’s what I ate:
Breakfast: Greenberry Shakeology with strawberries

Mid morning: Fiber Sweep
Lunch: Lemon Pepper Cauliflower with 1/2 pear and Vanilla Fresh Shake

Mid afternoon: no snack,  not hungry
Dinner: Vegetable stir fry with Vanilla Fresh Shake.

How I feel:
I’m feeling pretty good. Not as tired at all.  I’m sleeping well too, which I’m grateful for because that can be a challenge. I’m also happy to report that I’m down another 1.8lbs. Now just waiting to see my final numbers in the morning.

My 3-Day Refresh starts tomorrow!

Hi Folks:

So with yesterday being a pretty busy day starting with picking out fixtures for my bathroom remodel, picking up a few last minute baking supplies for my cupcakes, baking more cupcakes than I’ve ever made before, and attending my daughter’s volleyball banquet I forgot to mention that I got my 3-Day Refresh in the mail.

I’m planning out my meals so that I can be successful on the 3 days and will be starting it tomorrow. I think that the hardest challenge will be the lack of coffee but I’ve been preparing for that by drinking half decaf in my morning cup so that I don’t experience an extreme decrease in my caffeine intake and get a headache. I will be having green tea, which does contain some caffeine, in it’s place.

Before we get to far, you may be asking what a 3-Day Refresh is.

The 3-Day Refresh is a program designed to help you kick start your health and nutrition efforts and help you make a break from your negative habits. For me this is important because I’ve been a bit off for a while and I need that extra push to get me going.

Check out this quick video about the Refresh:

What do you get in the pack:

During the 3-Day Refresh I’ll be enjoying 3 daily shakes, a fiber drink, fruits, veggies, healthy fats and plenty of water. All of this is designed to keep you full and keep your energy levels up and metabolism cranking. The kit contains Shakeology, Fiber Sweep, and Vanilla Fresh (a protein rich shake). It also comes with an easy to follow guide that gives you step by step instructions for completing the 3 days and if you have everything that you need, there is no way to mess this up.

For the next 3 days I will be completing the following:

Wake-up: Drink 8-12 oz of water

Breakfast: Shakeology + a fruit option

Mid-morning: Fiber Sweep

Lunch: Vanilla Fresh Shake + Fruit + Veggie + Healthy Fat

Afternoon Snack: Veggie + Healthy Fat

Dinner: Vanilla Fresh Shake + a meal from the dinner recipes + Organic veggie broth (optional)

You are encouraged to drink half your body weight, in ounces, of water every day to help with the increased fiber intake.

I will also be completing mild to moderate exercise during my refresh, nothing super strenuous.

I’m pretty excited about giving this a try and will be documenting my daily results here. Stay tuned!

Why Beachbody Coaching?

BBAltSigB

Hi Folks:

So if you didn’t know it before, I’ll share with you that I recently became a Beachbody coach. A lot of people have a lot of different reason for why they chose to become a coach. For me, I was looking for a way to start coaching others, considering the fact that I have put a lot of time and attention into the “learning” phase of my health and wellness background. What you may or may not know is that I hold my Masters of Arts in Human Services with a specialization in Health and Wellness. The kicker to this is that I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer. I have so many reasons why I haven’t made this public knowledge, but the biggest is because I was afraid that people would judge me based on the fact that I’m not at my goal. What I am learning through my upline coach, Teresa, and what my good friend, Amber told me was that people can and will appreciate my journey. The fact that none of this is easy for me and that I have to fight for the time and consistent motivation to exercise and practice clean eating is something that people can identify with.

I chose Beachbody because I saw it as a way to help me begin my journey towards helping others. The fact that they provide guidance and support through everything is invaluable. Also, I would love to find a bit more financial freedom as I am getting ever so close to sending my kiddos to college.

I am working my way through my first week of the 21 Day Fix and I have to say that even though I’ve hard to change my schedule a bit (and to the dreaded early morning workouts @5:30am) I’m feeling really good. The 30 minute workouts can be modified to most any fitness level and the meal plan is really easy to follow. Every day this week I have had my Shakeology as well. I add fruit to it so that I can kill 2 birds with one stone.

I’m totally and completely excited about this opportunity to help others along their fitness journey.
