Week 2 Round 3

I'm at the end of week two now, on a rest day, and finally getting back into the swing of things. I swear you hit that two week point and while no, the workouts aren't easier, it sure is easier to motivate yourself to go get them done! It's less of a chore and more of a pleasure!

Plus!!! I recently found out the Vegan shakeology is coming out in January? 2012!!! Yes pleeeease! I have been waiting for this for a whole year, my dairy allergies have kept me from being able to drink the regular DELICIOUS chocolate shakeology (I tried it for 3 days, lost 5 pounds, it was awwwesome, but it hates me so I can't drink it anymore) I am so excited to get some Tropical vegan shakeology and finally be able to play catch up with all my friends who have been drinking shakeology and working out the whole time.

Anyways, here are my progress pictures so far, my legs have lost that half inch they gained while I was injured! So happy about that! Be sure to check out my post about the Holiday Weight Loss Fitness Challenge that I'm hosting!

Deciding to ~Gain~ Weight for Christmas

For the last 2 years for the holidays I've deliberately chosen to NOT gain weight, and have succeeded in it. Did you know that if you do not decide to lose weight during the holidays you ~will~ actually gain it? So if you do nothing, you are in effect deciding to gain weight for Christmas!!!! Hey, please pass the fudge. ;)

Think about what it would be like to hit New Year's Eve and realize, "I AM ALREADY LIVING LIKE I WANT TO," and your only resolution to be "keep it up?"

Not possible? Hmmmm. I think you can do it!

So, that's where this challenge is going to come in!! :)

I am offering to coach FIVE people over the holidays and into the New Year! We will develop a community of encouragement and accountability all striving to improve our health TOGETHER. This is a beta test group so there are going to be some requirements so we can get good results.

What are the requirements?

*You must be committed for 90 days. That stretch will look like mid-late November through mid-February.

*You need to drink Shakeology daily. And we are hoping for that awesome new TROPICAL vegan flavor to come out in the first quarter of 2012!!! (I am SO excited for this!!!)

*You must commit to a Beachbody program. Nearly all programs are 6 days a week of exercise. Some are 5. The daily time commitment is usually 45 - 60 minutes.

*You must be on Facebook. The reason for this requirement is that I want to have all of us in a private group together where we can build relationships, encourage and stay accountable.

*I will recommend that people log their nutrition into an online fitness app like MyFitnessPal. We can all "friend" each other there and stay accountable that way too!

Now for some good news!

On November 1, 2011 Beachbody will release the "Challenge Packs" which include:
* a home direct order of Shakeology, (home direct is a re-occurring convenience plan that bills you automatically for shakeology every month for people with busy schedules)
*a fitness program of your choice,
* 1 free month of the Beachbody Club (The Club includes an awesome meal planner and other great weight loss/fitness related tools).

There are three packs to choose from! The prices are in the neighborhood of $160 for the beginning programs up to $205 for the more advanced programs. Each pack will come with free shipping and will also save on the whole cost from $25-$45 (than if you ordered Shakeology and the fitness program separately). :)

If this sounds like something you are ready to COMMIT to...then add a comment to this post and let me know. I will not publish your comments. Supply me with an email and if we aren't already Facebook friends, then request me or give me your page in the comment and I'll look you up.

I'm excited to see who is up for this challenge and I'm ready to kick it up a notch and get rid of this last 60 pounds!

Holiday weight gain? Not me!! Not YOU! ;)

P.S. Thanks @Coach Amy Shaw for letting me use your words <3
