Happy Saturday!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and also got some good Black Friday deals!  Speaking of deals, did you know that Shaun T, creator of programs like Hip Hop Abs, Insanity, T25, etc)  is coming out with a NEW fitness program?  It's called Insanity Max 30 and is going to be the next crazy insane fitness program that will give you unbelievable results!  I have to admit, when I took the plunge and started Insanity, I had a difficult time finishing the second half of the program.  Why?  Because as a full time working new mom of 2 at the time, long workouts just did not fit in to my schedule.  Now that my girls are 3 and 4 years old, I'm still  limited on the amount of "me" time that I can schedule out for exercising.  So, I am loving every minute of these newer Beachbody fitness programs that are continually being released because they have been about 30 minutes or less!  Surely you can block out 30 minutes of your day, right?

Insanity Max 30 is all about pushing yourself to the limit.  It is taking home fitness programs to the EXTREME next level in just 30 minutes a day!  This is definitely a hardcore workout that will take dedication, motivation, and solid effort.  It is almost like a mental game of how far you can push yourself before you MAX OUT!  

I am super excited for this workout to come out and will be running an exclusive Insanity Max 30 test group beginning Monday, December 8th.

So, what exactly IS Insanity Max 30?  Let me tell you a little about it so you can decide if you think it would be a good fit for you. 

Who is Insanity Max 30 for?

Before you rule out this program due to it's intensity, let me start by saying that there is a low-impact modifier in every workout.  The program actually comes with with a special feature so that the modifier stays on the screen at all times!  For those of you who have followed a modifier in other programs, you have probably run in to the issue of not being able to see exactly how to modify a move until several seconds in to a specific exercise. This will not be a problem with Max 30.  Setting the option and having the modifier on the screen at all times will make it easier to see and easier to follow.

Modify every move!
 
While there is no denying that this is an intense workout, a beginner who is looking to really jump start their fitness journey using an intense workout, or someone who is looking to take their fitness to the next level, would be a perfect candidate for Insanity Max 30.  When it comes down to it, it's not about being in great shape to handle the workout, it's about showing up every day and pushing yourself to YOUR max.

150 New Moves!!

What does it mean to "Max Out?"

The idea of "maxing out" isn't actually bad.  That's the point!  What you do is you go as hard as you can for as long as you can until you need a break, or until you MAX OUT!  Then, you write down your time, take your break, and jump back in! If you stick with the program and stay committed to your results, then you will notice that your max out time increases each week.

Insanity Max 30 - 5 days a Week
What are the Insanity Max 30 workouts?

Insanity Max 30 is a 60 day program with two 30 day phases. You will be happy to hear that it is 30 minutes per day / 5 days per week. In addition, you get to switch up your workouts for the second month.  On a recent webinar, Shaun T talked about his incorporation of Tabata workouts. In the Tabata workouts you do 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off power moves.  During month two, those intervals increase to 45 seconds on and 15 seconds off.  







During month one, there are 2 cardio workouts, two strength workouts, and the Max 30 Friday Fight.

If you are considering Insanity Max 30, there are a few options that you can choose from.  You can get the base kit, the deluxe kit, or the challenge pack.  So what's the difference?  The base kit (pictured below) will include everything described above.

The Test group will include complete guidance, support, motivation, and accountability through the duration of the 60 day program.  I will incorporate weekly meal planning, post my personal meal plans, and everyone will replace one meal per day with Shakeology.   Truthfully, it is perfect timing to have Shakeology.  At this time of year we are tempted with lots of sweets.  Shakeology is a nutritionally dense meal replacement that provides you with your daily dose of nutrients.  When doing a workout such as Insanity Max 30, your body will need to be replenished with nutrients for recovery. Shakeology also has the proper carb to protein ratio which will help keep you feeling fuller, longer. There are all kinds of yummy "treat" recipes that you can make that will help you stay on track through the holiday season too!

So, what do you say?  Are you in?!  As your coach, I will not only be going through the program WITH you, but I will provide you with the support to stick with it and get GREAT results!  It will not become another fitness program that collects dust!

Staying on track through Thanksgiving Week


Happy Monday!  This week is a little different because it is a holiday week!  For many, that means your normal weekly schedule will be thrown off a bit.  Aside from Thanksgiving Day, you may be traveling, visiting with friends and family, going out an extra night or two, or getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays.  In addition, if you have kids, they are home for an extra long weekend/holiday break! Believe me, I totally understand how busy life gets over the holidays!  In the past, this is the very week that I would throw my healthy eating out the door.  I had that typical excuse of "it's the holidays" and/or "I'm busy!"  It wasn't until last year that I really had a thought out plan in place, which prevented me from gaining those few extra holiday pounds as well as feeling guilty about what I was eating.  It really is possible to find a healthy balance of staying healthy and still indulging in your favorites, which brings me to this blog post! I thought I would share with you how I am personally going to handle this holiday week as well as share some friendly tips that you can use to help keep you on track.
Healthy Thanksgiving Tips, Holiday Survival Tips, Healthy Holiday Recipes
Let's talk about our Thanksgiving dinner first.  Many of us not only have 1 Thanksgiving meal to get through, but 2 or 3!  Between your family, your in-laws, and then of course the leftovers, it's hard to get away from the turkey for a couple of days!  In addition, you may be getting together with friends at some point.  

Healthy Thanksgiving Tips, Holiday Survival Tips, Healthy Holiday Recipes

The average amount of calorie intake that people have over Thanksgiving is  CRAZY!  Seriously, think about your dinner plate on Thanksgiving day.  Your typical dinner may include a protein, veggie, and carb and if you think about that Thanksgiving dinner plate I'm guessing you have double or triple in addition to some dessert.  Yikes!!  So, what do I suggest?  For starters, let's mind your portions! 21 Day Fix trainer, Autumn Calabrese made this fantastic video that explains how you should handle your portions on the big day.  You don't have to be following the 21 Day Fix to do this either!   You can clearly see that your favorites are still included on your plate.  The key is starting with veggies!    


I'm sure you have some sort of idea as to what will be served at your Thanksgiving dinner.  It's important that you have a plan in place on what foods you are going to indulge in, and what foods you are going to pass on.  Having said that, let's get one thing straight...I'm not saying that you should sit in the corner and eat celery all day.  What I am saying is try to have a little give and take with your dinner plate.  If you insist on having gravy on your turkey, then stick with a small amount.  If you know you are going to have some pumpkin pie, then pass on the other desserts.  As for the rolls, are they REALLY that important?  I can think of a lot of other carbs that are more worth your while :)

So, how am I going to spend my Thanksgiving Day?  In all honesty, it's not going to be THAT much different from any other day!   Like every other week, I have my meal plan in place!  Monday-Wednesday are 100% normal.  On Thursday, my morning and afternoon will be like any other day and we will be heading to my in-laws for our Thanksgiving dinner.  I am aware of the foods that will be served and know that it will not be a problem for me to fill my plate with veggies, followed by a portion of turkey and a sweet potato.  Of course, I do plan to have a small slice of pumpkin pie as well :) Here's the thing.  Eating healthy shouldn't be thought of as a punishment.  When I eat good foods, I feel good!  When I overeat, eat too many carbs, and indulge in too many sweets, I feel tired and bloated.  To me, it's not worth it.  Thanksgiving isn't about eating tons of food anyways! While I may be eating a tad more than my normal dinners, I have my plan, I'm sticking to it, and I'm not going to feel guilty about it!

Ok so what else is on the agenda and what do I recommend?



Healthy Thanksgiving Tips, Holiday Survival Tips, Healthy Holiday RecipesWork Out!  The first thing on my list for Thursday morning includes getting my normal workout in.  For me, that happens to be Pilates Fix, which I really enjoy! In addition, I plan to incorporate a little Ab Fix as well.  If it is important to you, you will find a way to get it done! If you are traveling and staying at a hotel or with family, there are tons of different workouts you follow on Youtube or you could even bring your workout DVD's.  My suggestion is to get up early, before everyone else, and get it done. Otherwise the craziness of the day will allow you to create excuses and run out of time.  If you are staying at a hotel then you can hit up the gym!  It could even be something as simple as going on a brisk walk.  Just get moving!

Healthy Thanksgiving Tips, Holiday Survival Tips, Healthy Holiday RecipesStay Hydrated!  Remember, you should be drinking half of your body weight in ounces.  It should be no different on Thanksgiving.  Making sure you are getting all of your water intake will also allow you to stay full, preventing you from overeating.  BE CAUTIOUS of liquid calories!  You can definitely enjoy your glass of wine, a beer, or whatever other drink you want, but in moderation!  Remember to count that as part of your calorie in take for the day.  


Healthy Thanksgiving Tips, Holiday Survival Tips, Healthy Holiday Recipes, Shakeology Drink your Shakeology!  If you are a Shakeology drinker then don't forget to drink your shake!  I can't tell you how awesome it was to have Shakeology over the holidays last year!  Aside from it being super healthy, it was nice to be able to have a shake for breakfast or even just as a snack to help curb my cravings.  Although I don't have it planned, I may end up pulling out my Pumpkin Pie or Vanilla Fudge Shakeology recipe if I feel the sweet tooth coming on. 

Focus on Socializing, not mindlessly eating!  What do I mean by that? You know after dinner when you are standing around in the kitchen or sitting around the table talking with your family and the bowls/plates of sweets are sitting around? Isn't it so tempting to just dip your hand without even knowing it!  That's called mindlessly eating.  While socializing, be cautious of the food in front of you.  I recommend passing it up all together.  

Take a healthy side dish! Whether you are hosting Thanksgiving or heading to someone's house, make something that is healthy.  Healthy doesn't me disgusting!  In fact, chances are no one will even notice that they are eating a healthier version of something.  Here are lots of different recipes you could try:



Come Friday morning I will be up and back at it again with my morning workout and possibly some Black Friday shopping!  If you are going to be out and about, be mindful of your food choices.  In fact, I'd recommend packing yourself a little cooler with some healthy snacks.  Stay clear of the food courts!


I wish you a healthy and happy Holiday!!

I am going to be starting my Healthy Holiday Survival Group on Monday, December 1st.  It will last through the 31st and provide you with tips for staying on track, support, accountability, motivation, recipes, and more! If you are looking for that extra accountability then make sure you fill out and submit the form below!

The requirements are 30 days of Shakeology, a Fitness program (optional but recommended), and the option to begin with the 3 Day Refresh, Think about it this way, don't wait until after the holidays to get started.  You can actually lose a decent amount of weight between now and Christmas!  Then, you can set new goals for the new year!
