Success Story Sunday: Erin

Success Story Sunday: Erin

Success Story Sunday: Erin This week’s Success Story Sunday celebrates our friend and Coach, Erin, who’s been on a remarkable journey since she made a choice and said, “no more excuses!” Here is here story in her own words… I was a girl with excuses. I gained a lot of weight during my two pregnancies. On my second maternity leave I was consistent with the gym and eating pretty healthy. I lost the weight. However, I cut carbs and wasn’t eating enough, so when I started working full time again… it came back on. Fast. It was easier to eat a sandwich and make excuses than fit in a workout at lunch and I didn’t want to go after work as I missed my kids terribly and wanted to get home to them. I did start an at-home workout program, Insanity, and made it 3 weeks…and stopped. There was no real reason except I let those excuses come back. Two years ago, my journey brought me back to at-home workout programs on a whole new level!  I was struggling with my weight, struggling with fitting in fitness, struggling with nutrition and something needed to change! I was too busy to be tired and overweight…and that’s when a friend introduced me to the 21 Day Fix. The 21 Day Fix and it gave me the tools I needed to make health and fitness SIMPLE because I didn’t have time for anything more complicated and the real bonus was… I could do this all from the comfort of my home! Instead of resenting my situation and making excuses, my husband and...
What the scale won’t tell you

What the scale won’t tell you

What the scale won’t tell you… So you have decided to take your health into your own hands and have jumped on the fitness train. Congratulations! You have joined a gym… taken up jogging… grabbed an at home workout program and you are going to focus on your nutrition and finally get the results you’ve been looking for. AWESOME! Now what? We want you to put the scale away. Why? The scale will only tell you the numerical value of your gravitational pull to the earth. That’s it. That’s all. It will not tell you how beautiful you are… how much your friends and family love you… how amazing you are… how brave you are for taking it upon yourself to be better everyday… how encouraging and inspiring you are to others…  how proud you feel after a workout completed… and how truly awesome you really are!!! Think of this… Scale weight will fluctuate wildly!!! 2-5 pounds DAILY! It’s all depending on time of day… water weight… what you have eaten… so many variables! Scale weight says NOTHING about your ability to RAWK your workout! How every time you press play, or go for a run, or the gym you get better every single day! The scale blinds you to real results you’re getting from your new lifestyle… which are: 🔥You’re sleeping better. You have more energy. You’re less moody or depressed. 🔥 Your cravings have dissipated… you recover faster from exercise… your symptoms or medical condition have greatly improved. 🔥 Your relationship to others has improved. Your relationship with yourself has improved. 
And yet, you’re a “failure,” because...
Success Story Sunday: Sylvia & Alan

Success Story Sunday: Sylvia & Alan

Success Story Sunday: Sylvia & Alan WE DID IT!!!! That was the first thing my mom said to me when I answered her call this last week after she and my dad had finally hit their goal weights after over 2 years of a dedicated focus on exercise and nutrition! Here’s the re-cap as written by my mom: I have been on a journey since December 7th, 2013. It has been a long journey, with many ups and downs but I have reached my goal and I am so happy! As one gets into those golden years the idea of doing exercise and changing your eating habits comes with the big question WHY! Old habits are hard to change. BUT with a lot of determination and the support of Game Changers (our daughter and son-in-law’s motivational exercise and eating group), we and I say we, as my husband, Alan, followed along with me, and we accomplished our goals. Alan lost about 37 pounds and I lost the same, 37 POUNDS over a period of 28 months. We achieved these goals through exercise, better eating habits and drinking Shakeology. For exercise we wore out our treadmill and then replaced it with an elliptical. Along with this, I have been doing an exercise program called Cize and Alan has been doing P90. After years of being couch potatoes through the winter and riding golf carts in the summer we changed some bad habits and have added some healthier years to our lives. Isn’t that an inspiring Success Story!? So what are you waiting for? Proof positive right here that your goals are...
Transformation Tuesday: Lauren

Transformation Tuesday: Lauren

Transformation Tuesday: Lauren “These programs work!” That was the resounding response from the members of our last online accountability aroup… a private Facebook group where we stay motivated together, inspired daily and stay accountable to each others goals. We have been running these groups for a couple of years now and are always blown away. Why? THEY WORK!!! Accountability is the missing ingredient for a lot of people. If you’re not accountable to someone to help you reach your goals… to push play on your workout program… stay on track with your nutrition… 9 out of 10 times you will fail. But having someone there to lift you up and push you through times of struggle? That right there? GOLD! These are the words of one of our latest Challenge Group members (and newest Beachbody Coaches!) Lauren Hyatt: “I LOVE BEACHBODY AND BEACHBODY WORKS. I truly discovered that by honing in on nutrition and focusing on your workouts and progress everyday- it forces you to keep looking forward and pushing forward. I have had so many issues with eating in my life but this has by far been the most successful plan. I work well in a team accountability environment. Hey and who knew???? the more work I did the better it got, the more rewarding it got and I started to have fun. Shakeology has completely kicked my cravings – LOVE IT!! I literally NEVER thought this could happen. I had lost all hope. TRULY. My clothes fit better, I feel great! I am super critical of myself though and still have a long way to go BUT...
How to repurpose your leftovers

How to repurpose your leftovers

HOW TO REPURPOSE YOUR LEFTOVERS It’s SUNDAY (at the original time of this post ;))!!!… a day which many people use for meal prepping and planning! So, it got us thinking… how many times we’ ve looked at a recipe only to be deterred from trying it because we don’t know we’re going to do with all the leftover ingredients! How many times this is happened to you? Well, we just so happened to find this quick and accessible list of SIMPLE ways to repurpose your leftovers in our new 22 Minute Hard Corps program food plan… and because this is definitely another key strategy and sticking to your plan and reaching your goals… Here it is for YOU: LEFTOVER MEATS Chicken, pork, beef, or fish can become tacos or wraps.

Success Story Sunday: Ginette

Success Story Sunday: Ginette

Success Story Sunday: Ginette Fitness is a journey. It is a lifestyle. One worth taking. So many people people want to be in shape, but come up with thousands of reasons of why not to workout or eat healthier. You want to be in shape? It’s going to take a decision to push past the fear and SWEAT!! Earn it! Be it!! You’ll be able to look in the mirror and tell yourself ” ‘I’ worked for it!! ‘I’ created this!! Not a magic pill, wrap, surgery etc. Our friend Ginette is a prime example of NO EXCUSES! I started working with Ryan and Carolyn and Beachbody about 2.5 years ago. I wasn’t overly serious about it at first, until I realized I had let my weight become a problem and it was effecting my health, work and self-esteem. I had always been a fit person prior to this and I let lazy habits get the best of me. When I realized this, I reached out to the team and the group support. I constantly read the successes and failures of people who where going through the same thing as me. It kicked my butt in gear. If they can do it. So can I. No excuses! The constant motivation from team members and Ryan & Carolyn has pushed me past limits I didn’t know I could reach. I didn’t like Shakeology at first, until I read all the amazing recipes my team members had come up with!! Talk about my favorite meal of the day now! I’ve lost 35 lbs in a year from the work outs, shakes,...
