Beachbody Ultimate Reset

Posted on Jun 18, 2013 in Featured, Fitness, Uncategorized

I’m back!! For the past month I’ve been on vacation (to Italy!!) and traveling for work but I’m finally home and definitely to get back at it! After all that Italian food and wine, I feel ready to clean up my eating. Soooo I’ve decided to commit to Beachbody’s Ultimate Reset for 21 days.
Tomorrow I start with Phase 1 which is the “reclaim” phase. During this phase, ill start removing dairy and red meat from my diet and ensure my system is properly hydrated. The plan has 3 meals a day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) and one snack a day if needed.
Tomorrow’s meals include lots and lots of veggies and protein with breakfast and dinner. The program is designed to make you more conscious of what you’re eating so you choose foods that have higher nutritional value to fuel your body rather than Simply choosing food for taste or convenience.
Ill be posting updates of my progress so check back soon! NO cheat days for 21 days…this should be interesting!! :-)

Les Mills Combat Challenge -Week 4 Results!!

Posted on Mar 10, 2013 in Featured, Fitness, Uncategorized

Ahhhh Week 4 done!!! You know what that means….time for measurements! But first, let me tell you how my workouts are going and how I’m feeling. This week, I started to feel more sore and tight. This is the first time I’ve considered getting a massage because the baths and heating pads just aren’t cutting it. This week, ill try to do the Inner Warrior Stretch DvD more often to try to relax my muscles. If that doesn’t work, I’ll be heading down the street to Ah Massage! :)
Other than that, I’m feeling great! I didn’t eat as well as I should have but am trying to eat as clean as possible. I think everyone needs a cheat day every once in awhile! If you don’t ever indulge, your diet probably won’t last long. The past month, I’ve definitely seen how important clean eating really is…you can workout all day everyday, but if you aren’t eating right, you aren’t going to see results! The right fuel has kept me strong in my workouts even on limited calories.
Ok enough of that…time for results!! 4 weeks in and I’m down 13 inches and 10lbs!! Here’s the breakout:
Chest: -.5
R. Arm: -1
L. Arm: -1
Waist: -1.5
Hips: -2.5
R. Thigh: -3.5
L. Thigh: -3
I’m definitely happy with my results and am hoping my progress won’t slow down too much in the last 5 weeks. I’m even being brave and sharing a pic of my almost abs! Ill share another pic in 5 weeks at the end of the program. If anyone out there is interested in purchasing Combat, feel free to message me with questions!
