It has been a little bit of time since I have posted. I have been really working hard to get my eating right over the last several months. I am Vegan now with an occasional fish dish here and there. Eating this way has definitely allowed me to maintain my weight easily whether I was counting calories or not, exercising or not and has made it much easier when I eat out to make healthier … [Read more...] about My review of a few Beachbody Programs
Beachbody has some amazing programs that really are total body workouts. However, we are human and guess what – we sometimes get bored with our workouts. Sometimes we feel that these workouts give us a lot of one thing but we feel we miss something from another one. As I am almost 60 days into Turbo Fire I am really missing weight training. Turbo Fire does have strength training workouts using … [Read more...] about Les Mills Pump and Turbo Fire Hybrid
Beachbody is doing a great trial program for those who aren’t 100% sure one of our home workouts is for you. For 14.95 + tax you can get P90X, TurboFire or Brazil Butt Lift with Shakeology and Club Membership for 30 days. What’s the catch you may ask? There isn’t one. If it’s not for you just return it before your 30 days. However, if you are like me and so many that I have helped along the … [Read more...] about July Try before you Buy!
I am a bit behind on this post. Last week was the last week of school for my youngest who is now going to be a sophomore in high school. My oldest is home from college and in a lot of ways I let the week get away from me. I worked out half as much as usual but I still did really well eating healthy. This weekend I got my act together, made my plan for the week and got back to my usual workout … [Read more...] about Staying Accountable Week of June 11th
I hear this from so many people. How many of you have gym memberships but only go once a month? How about once every 6 months? That was me! I was one of those people. We paid hundreds of dollars a month for a family membership to the YMCA and hardly ever went. My excuses for not going weren’t anything special… It’s cold out (I’m not a fan of the cold), I don’t have that much time, I’ll do it … [Read more...] about I can’t do a Beachbody program at home – I need a buddy to keep me going! It’s too expensive!
Like so many people today who want to be thinner I have dieted. I have had some success with Weight Watchers and no real success or tolerance for Atkins. As I continue to get older my metabolism has also slowed a bit. I have lived with Hashimoto’s disease for years so my thyroid is checked regularly which means sadly it’s just aging. Yesterday I turned 40 and for the last two months I have … [Read more...] about Rethinking Diets
At first it was hard. I have to say that my husband and son really enjoyed my vegetarian dishes but for sides not for main meals. So there I was – being really good eating my healthy food while they added sausage, chicken and steak to their dinners. … [Read more...] about What I learned on my week without meat

I am starting TurboFire® on May 7th and I can't tell you how excited I am. I have done some of the TurboFire workouts when I wanted to add to P90X in the past but never a full run of the program. I have gone over the nutrition and have mapped out my first week of meals. I also have the weighted gloves just to add a little something something to my effort along the way. … [Read more...] about TurboFire – I am so ready for you!
