New Year * New You!

New Year

I can’t believe that the 2015 is right around the corner.  Where did the time go?  It seems like 2014 just flew by!

January is usually when everyone gets a gym membership and commits to changing their health and fitness.  Have you been to a gym in the beginning of January?  It’s PACKED!!  Have you been back in February?  It’s back to how it was in December.  Why does that happen?  Most people are expecting instant results and when they don’t happen they give up.  They don’t know what they should be doing each day and slowly they stop going.

Here’s what I’ve learned since running and participating in challenge groups:

1. 80 % of your results come from your nutrition 

You can do cardio all day, everyday but if you don’t change your eating you’re not going to change your body. You can’t out exercise a bad diet.

2. SUPPORT is the key to SUCCESS!! 

Having a community of support to check in daily with is what was the secret to my success.  At any given time I could make a post in the closed group regarding my daily struggles and someone would give me either a tip, suggestion, lift me up or love on me so that I didn’t quit.  I felt encouraged that I wasn’t alone and that others were going through the same thing as me.  There was always someone else who was feeling like me and being part of that group made all the difference for me. I was not alone!  We were all in this together.

3. I need a system

I am the type of person that needs a detailed schedule to follow, a meal plan to duplicate and proven results for me to believe!  I cannot just wing it.  I need a guide to get me through each step.  I want to know that if I do X,Y and Z I will get the results of those in the infomercial.  I love that every Beachbody Fitness Program comes with a nutrition guide to help me eat for the workout I am doing!  I love that Beachbody has the awesome food storage containers so that I am eating the right amount of food each day.  It truly takes the guesswork out of my nutrition. This is afterall the hardest thing to change and Beachbody does a killer job at tackling that with ease!

4. Shakeology 

Shakeology is not a protein shake or weight loss quick fix.  I will be honest, I was skeptical at first when I heard of all the amazing things that Shakeology does for a body.  But despite being skeptical I had to try it.  I started to feel a change in my body after two weeks.  I had more energy, less cravings and my digestion was improved.  The biggest change was my energy level.  Plus it was nutrition that I wasn’t getting before.  I felt healthier, my workouts were better and now it’s my daily multivitamin.

5. Accountability for me

As a coach, I am just as accountable to myself as I am to my challengers.  As a coach I stay on track because I know I am leading by example. I want to inspire the others that I’m working with and each day I do my best as an example to them.   I want those around me to say, “If she can do it, I can do it too!  I’m no different than her” Because it’s true, I’m no different than anyone else.  I struggle and have off days too but being in a challenge group keeps me accountable.

So here’s the scoop: I’m starting a new challenge group in January and I’d love to have you participate!

The requirements: 

You make me your coach by going to my site and clicking JOIN to make me your COACH!  (absolutely free!)

Together we decide what Beachbody fitness program is the right fit for you based on your goals and your current fitness level.

You are required to replace Shakeology with 1 meal each day for the very best results.  My goal is to teach you how to plan and prepare the other meals of the day so that you get the results you are looking for.  At the end of the challenge the choice is yours to continue with Shakeology or not!
