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?Β 

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 DAY 1 & 2

Yesterday was my very first day of Insanity Max 30!! It was awesome!! I am LOVING that these workouts are only 30 minutes! …….and they pack a punch!!
Max 30 day 1

 

The first day is Cardio Challenge and it is just that — pure cardio!! Shaun T is killer and the cardio moves certainly cause you to sweat and push through!!! Ya gotta DIG DEEP as he would say!!!Β  I maxed out at 9:30 — -which will definitely give me something to work towards for next week! I started to yell at that time — haha — next week I will yell and PUSH THROUGH!!!

cardio challenge

WHAT IS MAXING OUT????

Maxing out is when you feel you need to stop and take a break to re-group! Shaun T will give you mini-water breaks along the way….BUT once I started to yell (haha) – I figured it was time to stop and MAX OUT! The great thing about this program is that you are ONLY in competition with YOURSELF!! You can see how much you improve each week, because it will take you longer to max out each time, because you are getting stronger! It is brilliant!! πŸ™‚

TABATA POWER

Today was Tabata Power and that was awesome too! It is interval-based — 20 sec on and 10 sec off!! So, I maxed out around 14 minutes. Just when you are at your limit with doing a cardio move, he switches it to a strength based move! Its awesome!! There are ab intervals at the end. I love the tricep work because as we all know ladies, we DO NOT want the bat wings!!! haha!!! The end is the toughest in my opinion because he has you doing POWER tricep dips and tuck jumps!! OOOOMMMMGGGG!!!!

 

tabata

The rest of the week will be great!!! I have never been so excited for a workout or to see results!! I LOVE that the workouts are only 30 minutes. I get up at 5:00 am and get it done before my little one wakes up. It sets my day off right and I feel amazinnnnnng!!!!

 

Stay tuned for the NUTRITION program that comes with this workout! Its SIMPLE and effective! πŸ˜‰

Clean Grocery Shopping in 30 Minutes!

So, this weekend, I will admit – I was lazy and did not go to the grocery store to plan/prep my meals for the week. What’s that saying…..FAIL TO PLAN then PLAN TO FAIL?? OOOOh — riiiight…..yes, that is exactly what happened to me!! It was Monday and I was stuck eating eggs, some random veggies we had left in the freezer, 5 almonds and then my daughter’s snacks!! NOT. GOOD!

 

Needless to say, it left me feeling unprepared, starving, and disappointed in myself for not going to the market, when I had time, over the weekend! So off I went, bright and early this morning ((childless, I may add….yay)), grabbed a coffee, put on some personal development on my iPhone and listened as I shopped!! Multi-tasking at it’s best! πŸ˜‰

 

Here are some tips for fast and efficient grocery shopping that will leave you with healthy, clean-eatin’ foods!

Quick and Efficient Grocery Shopping in Under 30 Minutes:

KEY —–> SHOP THE PERIMETER of the store

Stick to the produce section ————> THINK

Veggies (peppers, cucumbers, cauliflower, tomatoes, onions, squash, carrots, sweet potatoes………. GO NUTS!)

Fruits (apples, berries, grapes, bananas, melon, pears………..)

Almonds

 

Move to the back of the store for lean proteins ————–> THINK

Chicken Breast

Lean Ground Turkey

Lean Ground Chicken

Pork

Turkey Sausage

 

Then move to the DAIRY section ————–> THINK

Greek Yogurt

Low fat cheeses

Eggs

Egg Whites

Cottage Cheese, lowfat

 

FROZEN SECTION ————> THINK

Veggies

Fruits

Organic Waffles

Organic Turkey Sausage

 

AISLES ————–> THINK

Nuts

Beans

Quinoa

Oatmeal

Mustard

Olive Oil

Coconut Oil

shop the perimiter

 

I hope that this quick post will help you to get started on how and what to buy while at the market. Once you have a “system” down…you can be finished with your shopping for the week in 30 minutes!! I am a busy mom and I don’t have time to search and seek throughout the store. You need to go in with a plan, shop the perimeter, grab a few items in the aisles and be done! FIRST plan out your weekly meals and make your meal plan and then go shopping. Below is an example of a meal plan that I use for The 21 Day Fix:

Meal Plan 21 Day Fix 2

 

 

GAME PLAN

Take time on a Sunday to go over different meal options for the week.

Write down the items that you will need for your meals.

Grab them at the store.

 

PLAN AHEAD & PREP your meals ahead of time:

Slice and dice all of your fruits and veggies to have them ready and ON HAND for grab & go!

Hard Boil eggs

Sort out your almonds and put them in baggies/containers

Bake chicken andΒ  sweet potatoes for the week

Have a water bottle that is easy to refill

Use mustard’s and balsamic vinegars to use as “dressings”

 

PLAN AHEAD to be prepared for the week ahead. NO ONE wanted to be forced to go through a drive-thru because you are famished! Have something always on hand to have in case of an “emergency”, I always have almonds in my bag and my huge jug of water.

 

YOU ARE WORTH IT —- Take the time to plan and you WILL NOT FAIL!!! πŸ™‚
