My fav workout program is getting a baby sister!!! The 21 Day Fix is my soul mate program & taught me so much about nutrition & got me in the best shape of my life!! Part two gets released today!! I had amazing results in ONLY 21 Days and I LOVED IT!! I continue to eat this way because it gives me ENERGY and I feel amazing. I have Ulcerative Colitis and I need to be careful about what I eat — this program makes my tummy feel GOOD!! No pains and like I said — I have energy throughout my day!

MY 21 DAY FIX RESULTS:

The 21 Day Fix Extreme — It’s like the Fix but takes it up a notch or two!! I love a challenging workout and this, I have a feeling, will be challenging.
I cannot wait to start!!

*Thirty minute workouts (every workout includes weights, except for yoga)
*Simple, clean nutrition ((Autumn even shares her bikini comp prep meal planning)) — NO TREATS like wine and chocolate like in the 21 Day Fix. This program is more strict and WILL get you results. You can do anything for 21 days!!

 

Here is the scoop:

What are the workouts like?

The program comes with a total of SEVEN different workouts (you will also receive some bonus workouts too!!).

  • Upper Fix Extreme
  • Lower Fix Extreme
  • Pilates Fix Extreme
  • Yoga Fix Extreme
  • Cardio Fix Extreme
  • Plyo Fix Extreme
  • Dirty 30 Fix Extreme

Who is this program for??

This program is NOT for everyone! This program is not for those who haven’t worked out in a while, or who are new to fitness. I suggest if you are new to working out — try the 21 Day Fix first and THEN move on to this program.

However — if you have been working out and want and need a new, challenging workout program that will get you shredded in 21 days — this is it!! If you want ABS — this is it! If you have a few annoying lbs that won’t go away — this is your program!!

 

What equipment will I need? 

You will need a yoga mat (personal preference), also a light set of weights as as well as a heavier set (5 pounds and 8 pounds or 10 pounds). Some people prefer a fitness band instead of using weights.

Insanity Max 30 REVIEW

The holidays are just about OVER and everyone can now resume their regular schedules and routines! I don’t know about you — but I am a creature of habit and when my routines and schedules get changed, I feel a little uneasy! 😉 I am glad that this week will be back to normal and that I can finally have my routine back! The holidays were fun and I loved being able to see family and friends………..but I also love my own schedules! 😉

I am entering into week 3 of Insanity Max 30!! The first two weeks were a little difficult because 1. its a new program and I needed to adjust and 2.) the holiday temptations were EVERYWHERE!!! I did pretty well — I did have 2.5 glasses of vino on Christmas and did my best to stick to the eating plan. Let me tell you that it had a SERIOUS effect on my workout the following day!!! I was struggling!! I did it but it was rough. It just goes to show that diet and exercise go hand in hand!!!  I did eat clean and only had a few bites of hubby’s pie! I was pretty proud of myself haha!! Trust me — it could’ve been MUCH worse!! I just kept thinking — think about how you will feel tomorrow if you were to have an entire piece of pie! Also — I want to SEE results from this program and am DEDICATED to that and pie doesn’t necessarily fit into that mold! 😉

I have noticed that with each week, and with each workout — I get stronger!! It is such an awesome feeling!! I keep maxing out longer and longer and THAT in and of itself is progress to me — especially because I am NOT modifying!!! I will say — my stats have not changed one bit and I NOT letting that discourage me!!! My clothes are feeling looser and I am getting stronger with each workout and that is an AMAZING feeling!!

progress

 

SO — now that the Holidays are OVER and the routine is pretty much back (after NYE I’ll be SET!!) — I am bound and determined to have results from this program!!! I will be posting my 30 day results in 2 weeks!! EEEEEEEKKK!!! Scary – lol! Every day I push play, and follow the nutrition, have my Shakeology and get my sleep — I am one day closer to the finish line! This is a 60 day program and it promises serious results! Six more weeks — that is IT!!! I have a feeling that it will fly by. Each day — you need to DIG DEEP and PUSH yourself. When you feel like you can’t do anymore, do three! When you TELL yourself you can — you are halfway there!!!

mind over matter

 

NUTRITION is 80% of your results!! You cannot outrun your fork!! I am so glad that the holiday temptations are OVER and I have literally thrown away the extra cookies and cakes so that they won’t speak to me in times of weakness!! lol Clean eating will allow you to have HUGE results!!! Clean foods like fresh fruits and veggies, along with lean proteins and whole grains will work WITH your body, give you sustaining energy and help you lose pounds and inches naturally. No more spray butters, low-fat or fat-free anything!! No more soda or sugary drinks — eat CLEAN and your body, mind and energy levels will be fulfilled!!!!

Eating Out Healthy Tips

Everyone loves dining out! It can be such a treat! You get waited on, you can relax and enjoy the company you’re with, you have a variety of food to choose from — and you don’t have to cook and clean for yourself!! I totally GET IT!!!

While eating out is fun and exciting, it can also derail any weight-loss journey and/or new, healthy, clean-eating plan that you may be working so hard to remain loyal to. There ARE ways to still enjoy a meal away from the safety of your kitchen, and NOT sabotage your plans of staying healthy.

Here are a few simple tips that may help you the next time you decide to dine out:

*First of all — look at the restaurant’s menu ahead of time, before heading out. Most restaurant’s now-a-days, have their menus available to you on-line. Some of them even provide you with the calorie content of each meal. If they don’t, that is okay too. Simply look to see what you think you may like, and either google the average calorie content and several pages will pop up for you to learn about calories in foods that you, yourself won’t prepare. Also, a great app for your phone is MyFitnessPal. This is wonderful to download on your smartphone for you to have accessible information and be “in-the-know” as far as calorie counts at all times!

*Stay away from anything fried, breaded, sauteed, creamy, or even blackened. There are extra calories and fat that are not that nutritious for you and won’t help you to stick with the clean-eating plan or to your weight loss journey.

*STICK WITH foods that are baked, grilled, broiled, or steamed.

*Ask for your dressing on the side. If you must go with a heavier salad dressing, just dip your fork in the dressing first, then into your salad. You will save fat, sugars and calories that way. If you are really focused and serious about losing weight & staying healthy — use oil and vinegar (a splash or two of oil), or even just lemon on your salad.

*Split a meal with a friend, that way you are only eating half of the HUGE portion that most restaurants serve today.

*Eat half and box the rest! Ask for a to-go box as soon as  you get your food, and pack up half! That way it’s outta sight and outta mind! You will be less likely to be tempted to”pick” at what remains even when you are full!

*Don’t drink your calories! Stay away from daiquiris, creamy drinks, and alcohol. Instead, have club soda with lemon, lime or an orange. Enjoy a tea or coffee or even a hot water with lemon.

*Order a side salad or steamed veggies instead of fries

*Select a meal that has lean meats and veggies as their main contents

*Watch the condiments. Mustard, vinegars, seasonings and hot sauces are generally calorie-free and follow along with a clean-eating plan!

*Skip the dessert or get a bite-sized version 🙂

ENJOY yourself — this doesn’t have to be a depressing venture……..it is a NEW way of thinking about food that will not only help you to feel better and give you new energy – it will help to ensure that you will be a long-term success and that you will be able to ROCK any outfit that you choose!
