Even as I sit here putting together this blog post, we have the TV on and watching the current episode of Masterchef. I don't know, it's just something about putting the kids to bed, snuggling up on the couch with my wife and my last snack of the day that seems to wrap the day up nicely.
But that's because I've already done my workout today... And believe me, it hasn't always been like this. we used to have to work it to where our only time to workout was RIGHT NOW, in the middle of watching my favorite tv shows. And although, I can't argue that your fitness and physical well being should come as a priority over watching, let's say, the latest episode of Big Bang Theory, what if you could have your cake AND eat it, too? (Or in this case, watch TV AND get your workout in?)
I've been getting a lot of questions on the 21 Day Fix and actually how to put a 21 day meal plan together. So I thought as I was writing out my meals for tomorrow, going through what we have and what I want to use tomorrow, I figured it'd be helpful to shoot a (what I thought) would be a quick video for you.
It's about 9 minutes long but tonight that's how long it took (actually only about 5 actual planning, the other 3 or 4 is me explaining a few things).
But a grab a sheet of paper and let's do this!
Don't have the 21 Day Fix, yet? Go HERE!
I do my best to check in with my clients as they are either going through one of our challenges or through one of the many at-home fitness programs and there's one story I wanted to share with about my client Lisa from North Carolina.
She started just a few months ago doing a program called P90X3 (it's like the original insane workout called P90X but only 30 minutes and they actually show you to modify some of the moves). She struggled with P90X originally because she's a business owner and runs not one BUT TWO of her own businesses and just didn't have time to put in a full hour each day. Can you see what she was immediately drawn to something like P90X3? She wanted a great workout but she knew that 30 minutes was all she could commit to each day and she's now completed almost 2 full rounds of it! That's 180 days of consistently working out!
Do you think she's seen results?
Heck to the yeah, she has!
Her main goal was to get down to around 20% bodyfat and she called me up yesterday and said that she's down to 15% bodyfat!
No joke! She's overshot her goal by 5%. And getting below 20% bodyfat is no small feat, especially for women outside of physique competitors!
She also attributed a ton to her success using the meal plans from this cool little website that let's you select exactly what you way want for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, prints off the recipes you'll need AND prints off the Grocery List! I don't know about you but I've spent lots of time between the wife and I putting together a grocery list each week trying to figure all of this stuff out.
So, using this recipe website, Shakeology, and some simple 30 minute workouts that are both fun AND effective she's smashed her goals!
I don't know if you need any inspiration on this Monday but I thought I'd share that with you.
By the way, with that said, if you want to jump on board with Lois, meet her personally in our Facebook group, and even join our next Challenge Group, click the link below and check out P90X3 and I'll put you at the top of my list for our August Group we're starting up.
Go here now
I hope you have a great Monday!
Happy 4th of July! I really wanted to do this live but since I also direct the local High School Band, we were busy marching in the parade!
For those that missed it though, here's a short Independence Day workout straight from the man himself!
Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
Eathing healthy on a budget is always a fun topic, whether you have a big family to feed or just trying to be frugal, so here's a fun article from Team Beachbody I wanted to share with you.
The foodservice industrial complex in this country has made it incredibly cheap to consume two of the three sources of energy—fat and carbohydrates. Of course, those also happen to be the two that decades of conflicting dietary fads have been determined to limit.
Outside those suffering kidney or liver disease, however, protein is rarely the target of dietary restriction. It also needn't require consumption in large, expensive slabs.
Deriving most commonly from meat, protein typically requires tons of feed, megaliters of water, and hundreds upon thousands of road miles to transport, contributing to its cost. In fact, according to PETA, it takes over 11 times as much fossil fuel to yield one calorie of animal protein as it does to yield a calorie of plant protein.
Are you tired of counting macros and grams of carbs or just find that too overwhelming starting out? Check out the video below to learn exactly which foods to eat for fat loss and then request the free 5 day Meal Plan to get you started!
