MOTIVATION MONDAY DAY 8

This last weekend we played at the Lake Saturday & Sunday. Doing tricks on our jet ski works the arms the whole body. So at first today I’m like I workout all weekend working that jet ski but yet I’m on a schedule and this is my therapy working out. Sounds silly but it is true. Today was day 8 of 80 DAYS it was also Total Body Core and it works all the parts of the body challenging your core and maximize strength gains and calorie burn.

Using weights & resistance bands feeling it in my booty & arms. But it seems like this workout goes fast and after working the jet ski to do tricks my arms are like noodles now..lol..

BOOTY WORKOUT

Everybody knows as we get older most of us lose our butt. So I work mine every chance I get lifting it and today from 80 Day Obsession was Booty workout oh yeah you feel it everywhere. Today will be a day I sit back a little bit easier..lol..This workout Targets your glutes, with isolation exercises designed to help shape a firm, round butt. That is what I like about it. I decided I would do 80 Day Obsession & 21 Day Fix Extreme see what happens. I can always tell when I’m feeling better I’m ready to workout..:)  I enjoy and I feel like it helps me go into a whole different place. Summer is here and it seems like we all want to look better in the summer so we can wear shorts and cute tops. At least I do. I truly do recommend this workout Autumn knows & talks about every part of our body that we want to firm up. She gets us..:) A few moves I did today that I took pictures of was with the bands squats, leg push backs, & toe taps.Oh believe me there were many other moves just didn’t get pictures. Having the strap on really makes you work the side of the booty and back.

Toe Taps

As always after words you need to fuel your body and put in the right nutrition to get the right results. Always trying to fuel with the best nutrition. Believe me I’ve done my research I will as well eat other things to like my Keto pancakes they are so good and I love how they are sugar free and low carb. So well have a busy day as always. Remember to keep smiling maybe you’ll get someone else to smile and make their day too!


A Little Obsessed & Cheesecake

So I find myself going back to 80 Day and thinking I will do it again. Lately I just do the 80 Day a little Obsessed which is only 30 minutes. So today I did Total Body all I can say is you feel it everytime..lol I love the burn if you don’t feel anything you probably won’t keep going back to it right? Anyhow today the workout was using light, medium, & heavy weights plus the resistance bands. Working the entire body burning fat & building muscle I love these workouts. Talking to others about these workouts I’m convinced I want to do it again. Besides Autumn always knows what parts we need to get worked..lol

Below is me doing Reverse lunge with a twist. I always feel that afterwards.

Next was slow loop climbers working that core again I don’t have any pictures on the floor this time. Then one hand renegade working the sides again. Pullover with a V lift using my 10’s and bands around my legs doubling up. Then one of my favorites modified V ups with the bands on working that core. Then I did a squat hammer curl rotation picture below:

IMG_5450.JPG

Then bicycle with the bands working the abs. Last tricep kickbacks used my 8s working the back of the arms & the butt that felt awesome. Repeat every workout again.

Then the best part of my day I get a delicious Strawberry Shake to refuel my body form my workout. Can’t go wrong a complete meal replacement for maximum lean muscle building and boosting metabolism.

  • 36 grams undenatured whey and milk protein
  • A superior branched-chain amino acid profile to boost muscle growth and maintenance
  • Low-glycemic with energy

I love having snacks occasionally but healthy ones right? I got an email with this delicious recipe Mini Keto Cheesecake so good..I’ve been wanting to try this ever since Amy Smith had sent it to me. This is what I have to say though if you don’t have control you might not want to make this its so good.. I have to say I took this picture from another because I was so excited after I made mine I ate most of it..lol but honestly my totally looked just like that one. I put blueberries on top so good. Probably won’t be making it for awhile but it was a nice treat. Here’s her recipe: I have to say this was so good I will make it again for a party or something just not when I’m hungry..:)

Get Down and Dirty, and get it done

So today was one of those days where you know you should have been in there and got your workout done before it got hot but no I sit around drinking my coffee thinking it’s not that hot.lol I finally jump up and went and done Dirty 30 Extreme which I intentionally wanted a hard workout today.  This workout has 7 different  moves focusing on multiple body parts at a time, burning more calories while defining your muscles. I felt every move shoulders were burning.

Some of the workouts were this:

Squat Press

Sword Pull Lunge

Squat Row

Just to name a few I got a lot going on as usual I’m running behind just catching up on here. After my workout I enjoy a delicious 1/2 Pina Colada & 1/2 Strawberry shake. Fueling the body to help me get through most the day. When I’m hot from my workouts I look forwarding to having a cold, cold nutritional shake. I already feel better. I like to mix it up been going lighter on the weights and focusing on toning more.

Staying active has been easy with the right lifestyle health & fitness I love our products and how they keep my energy levels up, and some of the best nutrition. Keep carbs low and keeping track of food has been a lifesaver. Helping others reach their goal has been a dream come true for me. I love helping people with fitness & healthF4A0AD9A-4F6D-4530-B5A7-99F0EEEB1BEF.jpeg


Train Hard & Eat With A Plan

Getting things back to normal finally..Getting sick runs your whole body down that makes it harder to workout. I’ve been doing this for awhile now so I know when to take it easier, stop, or take the day off. For two weeks been trying to feel normal and I think I’m getting there unfortunately the ones around me are now coming down with what I had:(

 I do feel so much better and getting back into my routines makes me happy. Today I did Pilates Fix Extreme with resistance bands boy do you feel your whole body getting a workout. This intense mat workout works the entire body, placing emphasis on the core. Which I love. How many times do you say I don’t need to finish this workout? I do and then I just keep pushing..lol.. This is one of the harder ones I would love to skip but then I feel like just do it! And I feel so much better after I do. Working the legs, butt, & arms you feel the burn.. The great part is my reward afterwards.

For along time I’ve been trying to decide which way to go with eating, and I always end back up taking my delicious shakes. The best thing I can tell people if you are wanting to lose weight log it. I started logging my foods and it has help so much I’ve been losing weight just by basically doing what I’ve always done just not having as many in between snacks.:) How many times are you eating a day? I been having a coffee in the mornings when I get up and my shake mid morning. Its been working I need the best nutrition to fuel my body to stay strong for my family & myself. I have read so many amazing stories of people that lose weight with our shakes & cleanse feel better, more energy, & better sleep. Who don’t want that? Right now we are having free shipping for new members this is the time to sign up if you are wanting to try this out click here. Money back guarantee if it don’t work for you. I love all the new seasonal flavors they come out with I just got in the Pina Colada YUM! But today I decided to have strawberry so good. They workout great if you are in a hurry and need to just shake it with ice & go..I always almost always blend mine I like to feel like I’m having a frosty..Taste just like one only a whole lot better for you.

 

I love seeing everyone’s transformations you want to just check our group out you can do that and not sign up until you’re ready. Message me to get in this amazing group. I can read people’s post for hours that might just be the health Coach in me. But it such a great learning experience.


DIRTY 30 DON’T STOP UNTIL DONE

So working out everyday has just been a habit that I don’t like to miss ever.  It’s one of my best habits..:) So I’ve been fighting this cough where I can’t hardly talk in the mornings but it gets better so I keep going. I believe you’re supposed to rest but I always feel like when you sit around you’re just wasting your day away. So I decided I wasn’t feeling 100% but decided I would do a 30 minute workout wow I forgot how Dirty 30 is..lol

Autumn always has a great saying in the beginning of a workout today it was “DON’T STOP WHEN YOU’RE TIRED STOP WHEN YOU’RE DONE”..it may sound weird but when she says stuff like that I keep thinking keep going so I guess it works out for me pretty good most the time. It’s not easy but the payoff makes it all worth it.:)

I have a few pictures of  the workout:

• Cursive Lunge

IMG_5120.JPG

•Squat Press

IMG_5131

•Push-UP row

IMG_5182

•SWORD PULL LUNGE

IMG_5188

•SQUAT ROW

IMG_5131

•LUNGE ROW CURL

So that was some of the moves your repeat and I believe there was 4 rounds. It was great I will be doing it again. The great reward after the work that I can’t wait to have is my delicious Cookies & Cream shake perfect for after workout. I always love refueling my body with the best nutrition.

Cookies & Cream IsaLean Shake contains a delectable fusion of flavors from crunchy chocolate cookie bits atop rich, creamy vanilla goodness. This refreshing shake is the perfect partner to help me crush my transformation goals!

If fuel was measured by flavor, Cookies & Cream would score an all-time high. This 240-calorie meal replacement is loaded with 23 essential vitamins to help boost my days and contains:

  • A superior branched-chain amino acid profile.
  • 24 grams of high-quality undenatured whey protein.
  • Active enzymes to ease digestion.

LOW-CARB PANCAKES

As I learn more about life I realize how important breakfast is. I love my protein shakes  but sometimes I love to have other things for breakfast. Its going to be a long day for me today. I need to think and get stuff done I have a full plate today so I wanted a good breakfast so I had 1 bacon & Keto-pancakes, with Maple SYRUP so good.

Putting the right things into your body early in the morning helps keep you balanced all day. Skipping breakfast can leave you with blood sugar roller coaster. Getting breakfast in the morning hormonally can be very important practice. Try eating early see if that makes a difference. When Tristan from primaledgehealth first said to do this I was like no way..lol..But actually I have been trying it for awhile it has helped me so much. I’m not hungry till lunch time. It takes time if your not use to eating a hour after you get up I’m still a lot of times not that hungry but when I eat I’m full and don’t even think about food again until lunch time or later.

Some of the things you might not know about Lakantos LOW-CARB PANCAKE & WAFFLE MIX  is they are PLANT BASED*KETO*GLUTEN FREE*HIGH FIBER who wants all the sugar? SUGAR-FREE KETOGENIC BREAKFAST. Don’t overload with carbs when you can have these delicious pancakes smothered with sugar free maple syrup. Keep your glycemic low by having low carb breakfast.  The maple syrup from lakanto is sweetened with monk fruit*SUGAR FREE*LOW CALORIE*LOW GLYCEMIC*ZERO AFTERTASTE.

Then I do a workout today I did Total Body Core which it totally does. Having a busy schedule sometimes you’re looking for a 30 minute workout and that is what I was looking for today. Do you believe in yourself? Yes I do. Is it easy? NO-It’s not supposed to be. Its hard but yet fun at the sametime. To change your body you have to change YOUR MIND. I added a few of the moves I did today. Have A Happy Monday!


Eating Healthy Can Be Overwhelming

So I’m catching up life gets to busy sometimes. I’ve been doing different workouts and yesterday I decided to do an hour of AAA from 80 day obsession that is always a challenge but yesterday seemed to go really good. Using resistance bands, weights, & sliders I always think I’m not going to finish this but I usually always do then I pat myself on the shoulder and say good job!:)

IMG_4237

I been going back and forth to 80 day Obsession and MAX OUT INSANITY which is a challenge that when you do this workout MAX OUT you use your own body for the equipment. That is a challenge and Shaun T sometimes don’t give you a very big break which is alright it last for 30 minutes and then its over. Here is a picture of tricep pushups: Always taking my e+ & Amped Nox before every workout.

IMG_4884.JPG

In order to do the workouts I do I got keep my nutrition right. So I love cooking healthy recipes and eating right. Last night I made my husband and I a steak and Green Chile & Bacon Cauliflower MAC N CHEESE so good you can find the recipe here  I’ve made it before and it goes really good with steak. Trying to think of things to make that are healthy and fast are overwhelming sometimes. I love making homemade breakfasts today I made  Blueberry Scones which if you have blackberries that works too. This recipe I’ve made and its quick and easy you can find the recipe from The Ultimate Guide to Low Carb by going here check out Jessica’s recipes she has so many good recipes. I find myself going back to her recipes and making more things. Also if you’d like to learn or get coached about Keto her husband Tristan and Jessica are great to learn everything you need to know go to: https://www.primaledgehealth.com/shop/?wpam_id=16 to learn more. It can be overwhelming all the stuff on the internet if you don’t know who to listen to or if its going to work? I found them when I was researching on different foods and lifestyles and I kept watching Tristan’s youtube videos he made so much since I could relate to. It finally wasn’t so overwhelming and when you take a class with them they will help you through any problems you are having at least they did for me and many others. Here is a picture of my Green Chile & Bacon Cauliflower MAC N CHEESE I took the picture a little early before it really melted together but it is so good. IMG_4892

PACARI, WORKOUTS & MORE

So some days are good and some days you might just struggle on your workouts right? I know lately I’ve struggled some days. But I don’t give up keep pushing you’ll get there. I did the whole 80 Day Obsession and I loved it I still go back and do a little obsessed like today I did Total Body Core its only 30 minutes but wow is it still gets me how it can be challenging.  What I  like about it you burn fat & build muscle everything we want as we get older right? Plus I like this one because it works your core as well.

So anyhow I’ve been doing some cooking lately and yesterday I made the meatza pie just like I’ve been talking about oh so good. Here is a picture of it I didn’t use all the meat had some left over and I’ll use that for other things. You get a chance go here and check it out.

I got something new in I’m excited to tell you all about it PACARI CACAO it actually is from Ecuador. When you try Pacari cacao you are experiencing the highlights of what makes Ecuador so special – clean, organically grown food from small family farms. 

Cacao offers many nutritional and life enhancing benefits
It is loaded with antioxidants (40 times the amount as blueberries), iron (the highest plant-based source of iron), magnesium, calcium, and selenium. Cacao can also provide a boost in energy and has been known to elevate mood and relieve depression. Cacao products are great sources of healthy fats and may mildly suppress appetite due to the function of MAO inhibitors.

What they offer:
  • 100% and 101% cacao bars – great for taking on the go, traveling and eating after any meal
  • Cacao Power – add to smoothies, cakes, cookies, homemade chocolate bars and even steak rubs
  • Cacao Butter – a source of healthy fats in ketogenic chocolates, cakes, piecrusts and homemade skin care lotions, balms and butters
  • Cacao Nibs – use to mimic chocolate chips and add a crunchy texture to low-carb smoothies, keto flatbreads and homemade ketogenic chocolates
  • Cacao Paste – Replace low-end bakers chocolate with high-quality cacao paste in any recipe. Or just eat it straight from the bag!

 


Rainy Days Are Good For Cooking

Yesterday was a beautiful day. We knew we were going to get some rain so I started brainstorming what I would be cooking because well most of us when we are home all day we want to snack or eat stuff you know when its rainy and you can’t go anywhere.

I wanted to make sure I had a plan. So I quickly started looking at Jessica’s recipes from Ultimate Guide & Ketogenic Edge Cook book.  I love her cookbooks you can find here so yesterday I made the Ketogenic Brownies so good! I love knowing every ingredient going into your recipe less guilt right..:) Plus I put on the Dairy Free Keto icing you can also find on their site by clicking here . I’m super excited about making lunch today I’ll be making from Jessica’s cookbook Deep Dish Keto Meatza Pie.. Which you can check their site out here. I’ve just been experimenting and seeing which recipes work for me and my husband and see if they will work for us. What works for me might not work for you and what works for you might not work for me..So anyway my whole thing is to eat healthy meals and live a healthy life and as long as I feel good I will keep doing what I’m doing today its rainy but life goes on getting ready to do a workout which will be Tabata Power and I think I’ll have time to do a ab workout as well. What do you do on a rainy day? Do you read do you workout? I try to keep as busy as I can so I don’t feel like its a lazy day. Keep moving is my thing you sit you don’t want to get back up. Have a great day! Be sure to check out Jessica’s recipes she has some great ones. Also if you have the time watch some of Tristan’s videos he has so many good points and it helps you understand. I know I was overwhelmed with some of the foods but they cook more like what I like knowing every ingredient that I put in my recipes makes me happy. I put her brownies and Meatza pie in the pictures click on them to go to their site.
