Pumpkin Cookies

It's Saturday, Thanksgiving is over, and the holiday season is in full swing!! And guess what?  So are those holiday treats!!  But trust me when I say, there ARE healthier versions of some of your favorites!  And they are delicious too!  I made these pumpkin cookies last week with my daughter and they were a hit!!  Both of my girls (5 and 6 years old) and my husband gobbled them down (along with myself!)! The recipe came from the Team Beachbody Blog and the only change I made was that I added some dark chocolate chips as per my daughter's request! 

Give them a try and let me know what you think!!

Week 2 Core De Force Results


Core De Force Results, Core De Force Week 2, Core De Force, MMA Workout, Core De Force Meal Plan, 21 Day Fix Meal Plan, Holiday Health and Fitness group, Successfully Fit, Lisa DeckerWeek 2 of Core De Force is in the bag and I am in the midst of Week 3 already!! If you didn't catch my Week 1 Review click HERE!  I can't believe how fast this program is going!  I have to say, I'm VERY happy with my results thus far.  If you haven't been following me, I'm on a mission to find my abs.  BUT, I'm not on a mission to give up every single itty bitty treat. SO, it's taking me a little longer ;)  I knew from the first day that I tried this program that THIS was going to be the program that would help me on my mission!  


So let's talk about Week 2....

The Week 2 workouts consist of:
MONDAY:
 ⇢MMA Shred: (Approximately 37 minutes) This workout kicks things up a notch with Muay-Thai-inspired elbows and kicks for a head-to-toe shred that will lean you out fast.
 ⇢Core Kinetics: (Approximately 16 minutes) Strengthen your powerhouse with unique MMA-inspired moves that help carve flat abs and tight obliques.

TUESDAY:
⇢Power Sculpt: (Approximately 36 minutes) This is a total-body burner that uses explosive power and interval training to help sculpt lean muscle and build next-level endurance.

FRIDAY:

SATURDAY:
⇢Power Sculpt

SUNDAY:
⇢Active Recovery: (Approximately 21 minutes): This is a MUCH NEEDED AND DESERVED recharge for the week ahead.  This workout focuses on form and technique to fight muscle stiffness and soreness.


As I've said before, I was a bit hesitant with the program due to the longer workouts but honestly, they aren't that bad at all!  PLUS, I'm seeing results, which is even more motivating! Just 2 weeks in I am already seeing a difference in my core area - which was my goal! Like I said before, I am following the nutrition plan about 80%-85%.  I'm not being super exact but I am be cautious.  I love the muscles that I am building and the fact that my body is leaning out a bit. Believe it or not, I've only lost 1 pound!  It goes to show that you do need to take those before pics and measurements and NOT rely on the scale.

Core De Force Week 2 Results

The WONDERFUL thing about Week 2 is that you get to add an extra purple container (fruit)  to your nutrition plan!! It doesn't matter what level you are following, you get to add it!  The workouts increase and let me tell you, you will be hungry!  I definitely noticed a difference in my hunger levels!

Core De Force Week 2 Meal Plan



As always, I am still drinking my daily Shakeology for breakfast and am also using Energize and Recover from the Beachbody Performance Line. Energize is great because it gives me a boost of energy to help me push harder in my workouts and burn more calories.  Recover is yummy and I drink it after my workouts to help reduce muscle soreness.  Since my body is adjusting to the program I haven't been drinking it every single day. 

Below is my Week 2 plan that I followed with the addition of the extra purple container.

Overall I can definitely see myself doing a second round of this program and maybe even a third! There are a couple of different calendar options once round one is over and I'm excited to explore them! 

Core De Force Results, Core De Force Week 2, Core De Force, MMA Workout, Core De Force Meal Plan, 21 Day Fix Meal Plan, Holiday Health and Fitness group, Successfully Fit, Lisa DeckerTypically at this time of year people tend to put their health and fitness on the back burner.  We are tempted with a ton of treats, parties, and feel like we are short on time with different activities (including holiday shopping) going on.  But you know what?  You CAN be healthy over the holidays. You CAN find that balance!  And it's OK to put yourself first every now and then!
So, with that, I am inviting YOU to my Holiday Survival Accountability Group.  From Monday, November 28th through December 31st, I am going to provide daily support, motivation, and accountability.  Within the group I am going to provide my meal plans, meal plan templates, recipes, holiday survival tips, traveling tips and more!  You can read more about the group HERE!

Holiday Survival Accountability

 Healthy Holidays, Holiday Accountability,   holiday recipes, healthy holiday recipes, Health and Fitness Online Groups, Successfully Fit, Lisa Decker
Well, Thanksgiving is just a few days away and with that comes A LOT of temptations!!  I've had several people ask me if I plan to pass on all the fixings on the dinner table and the answer is NO! I am a firm believer of finding that 80/20 balance so you better believe I am going to have that piece of pie and some other extras! What's that mean?  It means finding that balance of eating healthy yet still having those favorite treats (in moderation of course).  Once we get through Thanksgiving; however, A LOT more temptations are going to be creeping in.  Christmas cookies, holiday candy, holiday parties/events, drinks....ahhh!!!  It's SO easy to have that motto of "it's just an extra cookie" that before we know it, the weight has crept on, we are feeling sluggish, the stress of the holidays is getting to us and come January 1st, we're exhausted!

Then, as January 1st approaches we start to get a game plan in mind of how we are going to crush that New Year's Resolution of losing weight and getting healthy. The problem is, we end up starting 10 steps behind where we were before the holidays!  Does this sound AT ALL familiar to you?  This was pretty much the story of my life every holiday season.  But you know what?  It doesn't have to be that way!  You can keep up with a healthy lifestyle through the holidays without cutting out every single treat.


{Insert the HOLIDAY SURVIVAL ACCOUNTABILITY GROUP!}

Week 1 of Core De Force

Core De Force Week 1
Happy Wednesday!! After getting some frequently asked questions about Beachbody's newest program, Core De Force, I thought I would start blogging about my journey so that all questions could be answered in one place.  So, let's start with Week 1!!  I officially started Core De Force last week and am currently in the middle of week 2!  Whew! Let me tell you, these workouts are EFFECTIVE!

So, let's start with chatting about the workouts.   Core De Force is a 30 day program but the cool thing about it is after you go through the first 30 days, there are a couple of other hybrid schedules that include the deluxe workouts and Beachbody on Demand.  I love switching things up monthly because I feel like every new rotation of workouts work your body differently, which maximizes results.

Week 3 Review

 The workouts for Week 1 include:
⇢MMA Speed: (Approximately 27 minutes) Focuses on the upper body and is core-focused.

⇢Active Recovery: (Approximately 21 minutes): This is a MUCH NEEDED AND DESERVED recharge for the week ahead.  This workout focuses on form and technique to fight muscle stiffness and soreness.

Let's talk about MODIFYING this program.  Some of the moves in Core De Force, especially for the first round, are tough! But don't worry! There is a modifier in every workout who takes the impact level down a notch or two.  So don't worry about whether or not this program is too tough for you. Yes, I have to modify throughout including doing pushups on my knees.  I also want to note that I am drinking Energize and Recover from the Beachbody Performance Line.  Energy is the yellow drink in my hand in the picture above. It's great because if gives me a boost of energy to push harder and burn more calories in my workout.  Recover is used after each workout and is designed to help reduce muscle soreness.  It is not required but I will say that both products have helped me! 


Core De Force, What is Core De Force, MMA Workout, Home Fitness Programs, Core De Force Results, Core De Force Meal Planning, Core De Force Week 1, Core De Force Workouts, Core De Force Calendar
Stress Relieving Workout
My personal opinion on the workouts is that they are PERFECT for not only a total body workout, but especially for the core area.  With past workouts my core area was mainly worked and sore after specific ab workouts. Not with this program!  Every day you are doing moves that work that core (which is great for mommy's out there!)  I have also found that the workouts are GREAT stress relief.  Exercising in general is great for relieving that daily tension and stress that we face but these workouts, in my opinion, are PERFECT! 

If I'm being honest, I wasn't thrilled at the fact that many of the workouts are longer than 30 minutes.  I've been doing 22-30 minute workouts for a couple of years now so I knew this was something I'd have to get used to.  I have to say though, these workouts FLY by!  You do 3 minute rounds so each workout is really chunked up.  Yes, I have had to rearrange my schedule a bit to squeeze in those longer workouts but it's 100% worth it!  Sometimes you just have to do some multi-tasking!  The other morning I was getting my sweat on while my girls were eating breakfast and getting ready for school.

What is the nutrition plan like on Core De Force?

Core De Force Meal Planning

It's simple!  Like many other Beachbody Fitness programs, the color coded portion control containers are used. You don't HAVE to have the containers because the serving sizes of each food is noted. I love that the food lists are completely normal foods too! This program is slightly different from other programs because you do switch up your containers each of the 4 weeks.  In weeks 2 and 3 (which I will be writing about) you get to add some additional fruits and healthy fats due to the pick up in intensity. Then, in week 4 you are back to where you started.  Below you will see my meal plan that I followed throughout the first week.  It was plenty of food and I didn't feel like I was depriving myself at all.

Core De Force Meal Plan



There is this misconception out there that if you want to eat healthy you need to chomp on celery and eat salads all day.  That is SO far from the truth.  In fact, I eat 5 meals per day and the meals are not boring at all!  One of my favorite mid-morning snacks (or I guess you could say breakfast), is eggs with ham and spinach along with a halo and sprouted whole grain toast. It's yummy and keeps me full until my next meal.

Core De Force Meal Planning

In addition to each of the allotted containers, I do incorporate Shakeology into my daily plan.  Shakeology is a nutrient dense shake that provides me with my daily dose of vitamins that I otherwise wouldn't get.  I can sometimes have that sweet tooth and those darn cravings and Shakeology has GREATLY helped with that.  I often hear that people don't like to "drink their meals."  Trust me, I get it! I was skeptical at first too!  But honestly, the benefits that Shakeology has provided to me are invaluable and now it's just a part of my daily budget.  Quite frankly, while the cost seems expensive because you have to pay for it upfront, I would be willing to bet that if you added up the amount of money that you spent on 30 truly HEALTHY meals  it would be the same if not more!  I also love Shakeology at this time of year because there are SO many "treat" recipes to try!  The picture below shows my snickers shakeology, which was taking the place of the Halloween candy that was still in my house!

Shakeology
Overall I am very happy with Core De Force thus far.  I am in the middle of week 2 and there is no stopping me! I look forward to the daily workouts (even if some of them really kick my butt!) and I'm on a quest to finding my abs! When I hear that everyone wants to "wait until January" to get healthy, it makes me want to cringe!  Sorry if that's you but seriously, that USED to be me!  I would indulge throughout the holidays, gain some weight, and start even further back than I was come January!  It's really time to drop those excuses if you want real results!! It CAN happen over the holidays if you put a little effort in. No one is perfect and you aren't expected to be either!  Sure, I'm going to have those holiday cookies here and there and yes, I am going to have some pumpkin pie next week for Thanksgiving, but I know how to NOT overdo it.  I know how to find that balance.

Drop the Excuses
 So now I want to ask you.... are you interested in having some daily support, motivation, and accountability to help you reach whatever health and fitness goals you have?  I am LOVING the energy in my 2 online accountability groups and I am getting ready to start another one on November 28th!  Don't let the holidays give you an excuse to eat whatever you want.  Let me help you find that balance and then we'll hit it hard come January.

Chicken Pot Pie

Good Evening!  I posted a picture of my DELICIOUS looking Chicken Pot Pie the other day and have had some requests for the recipe. So, I thought I'd get it up on my blog so I could get it out there!  I want to first note that this recipe is not something that I created. I found it on the Team Beachbody Blog (which has AWESOME recipes) and made a couple of tweaks to fit my family.  It does have a few extra steps and ingredients than I prefer but it was well worth it!  The leftovers were immediately claimed by my husband!

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Chicken Pot Pie


Ingredients (makes 6 servings at 1 cup per serving)
  • 6 tsp olive oil, divided use
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 cups of baby carrots, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups reduced fat 2% milk 
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp chopped thyme
  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • 1 cup cubed sweet potatoes
  • 3 cups cubed chicken breast
  • 6 sheets phyllo dough (thawed)

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. Heat 2 tsp. oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add onion, celery and carrots; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
  4. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 6 minutes, or until mushrooms are soft and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  5. Add 1 tsp. oil; cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute.
  6. Add flour; cook, stirring frequently, for 1 to 2 minutes, or until flour and oil form a paste.
  7. Slowly add milk, broth, salt, pepper, and thyme. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Reduce heat to medium-low.
  8. Add peas, sweet potatoes, and chicken; cook, stirring frequently, for 2 minutes.
  9. Place chicken mixture in a 2½-quart baking dish. Set aside.
  10. Roll out phyllo dough on counter. Keeping the original stack covered, remove one sheet at a time and quickly brush with remaining 3 tsp. oil. Cut oiled stack of phyllo into quarters. Place phyllo loosely on top of chicken mixture; covering evenly.
  11. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until chicken mixture is bubbling and phyllo dough is golden brown.

For those following the portion containers, one serving of this recipe counts as 1 1/2 yellow, 1 green, 1/2 red (depending on how much chicken you scoop out for yourself) and 1 tsp.  

Enjoy!!

Gingerbread Pancakes

We are a pancake family. I swear my kids could eat pancakes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  While I do buy the whole wheat pancakes, there's nothing better than making them from scratch.  I was reading the new issue of my Clean Eating magazine and came across these Gingerbread Pancakes.  I immediately knew I wanted to give them a try this morning.  As I suspected, they were a hit, even with the hubby!

Gingerbread Pancakes
Ingredients:
  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk  
  • Grape Seed or Coconut Oil 
  • Maple Syrup (if desired)
  • Berries (if desired)
 
Directions: 
  1. Combine all dry ingredients and mix well in a large mixing bowl. 
  2. Add 2 cups of plain unsweetened almond milk; mix well.
  3. In a large nonstick griddle (or skillet), heat 1/2 tsp of grape seed or coconut oil. Using a 1/4 measuring cup, scoop pancakes onto griddle (or skillet).  Cook for about 2 minutes or until bubbles form in the batter then flip and cook for an additional minute or so until the pancake is golden brown.  
  4. Repeat step 3 with remaining oil and batter. 
  5. Serve pancakes with 1/2 tsp of maple syrup and top with berries of your choice! 

Gift Idea:  Mix together all of the dry ingredients and transfer them into an 8-oz glass mason jar. Get a cute card to attach and include the directions on how to make them! (No, that wasn't my idea. It also came from the Clean Eating Magazine!)
