The FIX is BACK!

By now you have probably heard about the fitness program that has been on fire since it was released in February: The 21 Day Fix Extreme, as well as its original counterpart, The 21 Day Fix.

fix

The concept behind the 21 day fix is that it typically takes 3 weeks (21 days) to make or break a habit. Autumn Calabrese is a bikini competitor for various fitness competitions, and she put this program together to deliver to those of us who would like to get all of the tools that we need to be fit and healthy in one place. Now this is not for everyone, and I am aware of that for sure. Some people prefer to pay hundreds, sometimes even thousands of dollars for personal training, gym membership fees, class fees, supplements, vitamins, etc.

With this program, you pay a one time fee and you get:

a) the full fitness program in DVD’s to show you exactly what to do and how to do it, a program that was designed by a figure competitor who knows her stuff!

b) a super strict meal plan to help you with the nutrition part of your journey

c) a color-coded portion control container system so that you no longer have to worry about counting calories, you just match the foods on your plan to the appropriate container and it gives you your portion!

d) a month supply of shakeology, our nutrition dense meal replacement shake that you drink once daily. This is something I use daily, and has helped me with my energy level, my regularity, curbing sweet cravings, among other things.

e) a month free trial of our club membership on the site, which gives you access to a wide range of information. You can even access VIP chats with some of the top beachbody trainers so that you can ask them questions and learn from them. PLUS, Beachbody ON DEMAND is being released in March for Club Members, which is something that you definitely don’t want to miss!

f) my support as your beachbody coach, as well as the challenge group I am putting together. When I started out, the challenge group that my coach put me in was instrumental to my success on this journey because it provided me with the accountability and motivation that I needed to keep pushing through.

How does this sound? I will be starting a FIXed Challenge Group set to begin July 6th, and I cannot tell you how excited I am to get started! I would love to coach you through this process and have you join me on this journey! If you’re ready to get started, all that is left to do is decide which of the programs better suits your individual goals and needs. If you are new to health and fitness, I strongly recommend the original 21 Day Fix. As you can see from the image below, that program means business, and will help you get some awesome results!

If you’re already somewhat into health and fitness, but could use help in the nutrition department or a bigger challenge physically, I would recommend the 21 Day Fix Extreme! Check out the photo below demonstrating some of the results that my fellow Beachbody coaches achieved during the test group for this program.

21 Day Fix Transformation!

I know a lot of people with a significant amount of weight to lose tend to think that Beachbody program could never work for them, simply because most of the results photos show people that were already relatively small before with a ton of muscle and tone afterwards.

It is ‪#‎TransformationTuesday‬ today, so I wanted to show you some results that a woman over 200lbs achieved using the original 21 Day Fix. I posted this first in my free health and fitness group, and one of the comments is actually going to serve as an example for what we will be discussing next.

“Wonder how tall she is…cuz she looks great at 173 pounds…”

So, how is it that someone weighing 173 pounds could possibly look that good? The answer is pretty simple. Muscle is denser than fat! You can weigh more than you look if you’ve got muscle, and that is something of which I think a lot of people are unaware. I posted a picture to demonstrate this before, but here it is again.

111111111111111

You can lose a lot of fat and put on muscle simultaneously, and that may or may not reflect on the scale immediately. Everyone is different. You will most likely see a drop in weight initially, which is mostly water weight. However, the weight loss may seem to drop off after that. This is when a lot of people get discouraged and give up, and it is such a sin because this is the time before seriously great things happen for you!

You see, you may be shrinking in inches and size, but not seeing a dramatic change on the scale. That is why I tell people NOT to focus on scale, because it can be deceiving. You could have lost 5 pounds in fat and put on 5 pounds in muscle. In that case, the weight on the scale is going to stay the same, but your body will show the real change by a loss in inches.

For a more realistic way to judge progress, I always advise my clients to focus on before and after photos. You can also use measurements, and use the scale only periodically. DO NOT fall into the trap of weighing yourself daily. You WILL set yourself up for failure doing that.

Did you know about the Shakeology Bottom of the Bag Guarantee?

So many people have been burned by meal-replacement shakes that claim to help you lose weight without changing your habits, and they either simply don’t work – or they work, but you gain the weight right back as soon as you stop drinking the product.

Admittedly, I was skeptical about Shakeology myself when I started with Beachbody. Eventually, my coach talked me into trying it by sending me samples in the mail and telling me about this bottom of the bag guarantee. I ordered a bag, and I’ve been drinking it daily ever since.

Why? Because Shakeology doesn’t just help with weight loss. Shakeology helps with a large number of different health factors. To name a few that I’ve personally experienced, it helps with regularity, it helps with hunger control, it gives you an energy boost, and it helps curb your sweet tooth cravings.

There are many more benefits of Shakeology, and honestly, what have you got to lose? Try it for a month, and if you don’t find that it has had a positive impact on your health and/or your weight, simply send it back for a full refund!

You can learn more about Shakeology by sending me a message, or clicking here: http://www.shakeology.com/fitsationnation

10-day-plank-challenge

10 Day Plank Challenge!

Do you want to build a strong core and get abs? If so, you should try this challenge! Planking is actually really good for your core and abdominal muscles. It isn’t easy, which is why you increase the time incrementally throughout the ten day timeframe.

If you are new to fitness I would suggest probably starting out by using your forearms to hold yourself up. As you build strength, you should try holding yourself up with your hands. If your arms get too shaky, come back down onto your forearms. You want to push yourself to do better, but you don’t want to push yourself to injury!

I’ve posted this challenge in my free health and fitness group for all of my members, and you are invited to join us! Just comment on this thread and let me know if you would like to participate, and we will go from there :)

Fun blue eyeshadow look!

I purchased a blue dress recently so, naturally, I had to match my makeup to my outfit when I wore it. Ever since I became a presenter with Younique, I’ve gained this pesky habit of matching my makeup to my outfits and to suit holidays lol. I just love it so much, and I have a lot of fun doing it!

I create these looks simply by playing around with different colors. Here is an outline of what I did to create this pretty blue look using Moodstruck Mineral Pigments:

  • I began with curious, and used a dry brush to shade from the lash line to the eyebrow. I then used rosewater on the brush to add drama to the inner corner of the eye.
  • Next I used feisty with rosewater on the brush to coat the entire eyelid.
  • I then used playful about a quarter of the way up from the inner eye all the way to the outer lid. I started with a wet brush, but decide to go over it with dry after.
  • Next I used awestruck with rosewater in the crease, and then went back with dry to blend properly.
  • Lastly, I added a little bit of devious in the outer corner/crease to darken the blue up a little bit.

I topped this look off with our 3D Fiber Lash Mascara, our red lip stain, and luscious lip gloss! I hope you find this useful. Feel free to recreate this look for yourself :)

PS: Our four pack of pigments is on sale until the end of February! Purchase the four pack of Moodstruck Mineral Pigments in this timeframe, and it will be as though you’re buying three and getting the fourth one FREE!

Are people trying to sabotage your success?

You probably wouldn’t expect this, but people (including those closest to you, like friends and family) do tend to sabotage others unfortunately. A lot of the time they will do it subconsciously, and they don’t realize that they are doing it. This happens because you act as a mirror to them, meaning that you reflect their bad choices.

Seeing you make positive changes in your life makes them feel bad about themselves because they know they really should do it too, but they don’t have the strength to do it. Instead, they try to bring you back down to their level and get things back to the way they once were. When this happens you need to be clear with those people that they need to accept that you’ve made these changes, and don’t let them discourage you from doing something that is going to improve your life.

It can be really hard, especially if that person is your significant other. Unfortunately I’ve seen many cases where one member of the relationship chooses to change their life for the better, and the other does not. What tends to happen here is the person that chose to make good changes will revert back to old habits to ease the pressure, OR the relationship will end up on the rocks.

This can be REALLY scary for people, because essentially in some cases you are choosing between your relationship or your health. The way that I see it though, is that if your significant other can’t support you in your decision to get healthy and they would prefer to make you keep your unhealthy habits – they simply do not deserve to be in your life. You should surround yourself with positive people that motivate and encourage you, not people who try to bring you down.

Having a good support system is crucial for most people to be successful on their weight loss journey, so it adds a lot of pressure when those closest to you are not supportive. If you have someone (friend, family member, or otherwise) like that in your life, I would strongly recommend that you sit them down and tell them how you feel. If they still won’t budge, I would consider how much you really need them in your life. If you don’t want to cut them out completely, it would definitely be a good idea to at least limit the time you spend with them temporarily. Once you’ve fully established your new healthy behaviours as habits, you can then reintegrate them into your life if desired.

FINALLY got my 21 Day Fix EXTREME!!

Words seriously cannot express how excited I was to finally receive my 21 Day Fix EXTREME in the mail yesterday!! I have been really looking forward to trying out this new program by Autumn Calabrese, a figure competitor and Beachbody trainer who certainly knows what she is doing!

I am kind of an all or nothing person. If I am not all in with both workouts and a meal plan, I tend to slide off into the deep end when it comes to cheating with my food. I need structure to stay on track. I need something that tells me exactly what I can eat, and how much I’m allowed to eat of it, otherwise I sometimes over-indulge on the stuff I like. Even when you eat healthy food, it is still important that you watch your portions. Too much of healthy food can also hold up your progress, because even healthy food has calories and possibly sugars, sodium, carbs and/or fat.

What drew me in about the 21 Day Fix was that it includes a color-coded portion control system that takes ALL of the guesswork out of portioning out your meals! I absolutely love this idea, and can’t wait to test it out. The kit comes with a starter guide to get you off to a strong start with the program, then you go into the regular meal plan. I LOVE that the EXTREME version of this program also includes a competition-based meal plan to really bring out the insane results. It has been a goal of mine for a while now to someday enter a fitness competition, so this is a huge deal for me!

This program was designed to introduce people to what it means to portion out your meals, and it will teach you how to do it so that you will be able to implement this technique into your life long-term. Now this is called the 21 Day Fix because – if followed properly – it has the potential to help you lose up to 20 pounds in just 21 days. Others who have done this program have gotten some pretty amazing results in just one round, while some people who start out with more weight to lose may do the program a few times to reach their goals.

Please do not comment on this thread saying things like “there’s no way this could work in 21 days”, because I’ve heard it all before. Did I say that this program would solve all of your problems and help you FULLY reach your goal weight in 21 days? No, I didn’t, because the results are definitely going to vary from person to person. If you start this program with a significant amount of weight to lose, chances are you’re going to have to do the program a couple of times to get to your desired weight. However, it can help you lose up to 20 pounds in three weeks while teaching you some pretty awesome tools for you to use in your daily life long-term as you work toward your goals.

I was classified by my doctor as obese before I started doing Beachbody programs, and I honestly expected that after 1 round of a program that I would have the body I wanted. Boy was I wrong lol. I feel like this is something that a lot of us tend to believe, and we need to take a step back and look at the big picture. We didn’t put all of the weight on overnight, so it is going to take some time to get it off. If you take the time to learn and implement healthy habits like clean eating and working out into your life, you WILL get there.

The great thing about this program is that it GIVES YOU everything that you need to get started on this transformation journey. Between the meal plans, the workouts, the color-coded portion control container system, and shakeology you are bound to see some amazing progress in the short three weeks with the program. Once that happens, more often than not, people WANT to continue the program so that they can continue to see these awesome results.

I’ve also come to learn that as you get closer and closer to your goals, your goal has a pesky little habit of changing on you. You gain this drive to constantly do better and BE better. In my opinion, that is a good thing because it keeps us motivated to keep working instead of simply stopping once we reach our original goal. If you do give up upon reaching your goal, more often than not people tend to return to old eating habits and taper off with their workouts. What do you think happens next? They will most likely gain back all of the weight that they lost, if not more. The best thing about the 21 Day Fix is that it teaches you HOW to portion your meals, and after doing it so much with the program it will almost become second nature. Once you learn it, you can apply it to your life long after the program to ensure that you do not regain the weight you’ve worked so hard to lose!

Thinking of giving up?

Are you considering giving up on your health and fitness journey because you aren’t seeing the results that you wanted? If so, I don’t blame you. I’ve been there, many times actually! I know what it feels like to be fed up and frustrated, and to think “what’s the point?!”. You get so mad that you are putting in all this work through your exercising, and restricting yourself from foods that you love for results that simply aren’t showing.

What I have learned throughout my own transformation journey though, is that if you want it now, chances are you’re going to want it again down the road if you give up. Take me as an example. I gave up multiple times, which means that I still had the same goals over a long time period. Giving up just means you’ll have to start from scratch at a later date to get the results you want. It took me a few years to finally try and succeed, because this last time I simply DID NOT give up.

The way that I like to look at it is that the time will pass regardless, so why not make the best of it by working toward your goals? If you look at it this way, maybe it will help you stay on track. You need to think of fitness and nutrition as a lifestyle change, and not a quick fix for weight loss. If you return to your bad habits after you lose the weight, all that is going to happen is that you’ll pack on all of the weight you lost. If you stick to good exercise and nutrition habits over a long period of time, YOU WILL see results.
