Well folks, I thought it was a good time to just do a simple check in to let everyone know how things were going. These Holiday months are the most difficult time to try to stay focused on a goal, especially a nutrition goal. And now we are almost half way through December.
To help myself and my Challenger’s get through these times without faltering on our nutrition I set up some mini challenges. The first one was in November to help us get through Thanksgiving and it was really successful so I decided to do another here in December. So far we’re doing great. I love hearing from my Team Member’s that they continue to lose weight and feel great. And to hear this at this time a year is almost unheard of, most people put on weight. We don’t want to spend the first few month’s of the new year trying to undo what we did in December. And the motivation from all our Team Member’s is just awesome, but as an extra incentive, the Mini Challenge winner will be awarded a prize valued of more than $100, so you can see we are taking this seriously. Below is just a couple of quick examples from some of our Challengers that are getting things done. Learn how you can join our group for free here.
My Journey Continues…
Back to me, I have been really nailing this nutrition thing the last few months. I really started taking it serious back in November where I re-started my nutrition tracking. It’s been nice to get back in the groove and see results. I continue to push play 5 days per week and play softball two nights as well. I have been using My Fitness Pal religiously and have only missed my nutrition goals 1 day since the beginning of November. Can you guess what day that was…Thanksgiving. That was a planned meal though. The November Mini challenge we had was basically to eat clean and track our nutrition for the month of November with ZERO cheat meals. The reward was we could eat whatever we wanted on Thanksgiving. Which I did and got right back on track the next day. If you are struggling with your nutrition or you have hit a plateau please check this page to get info that may help you get results. I have been weighing myself every other day, although it’s not necessary I like the frequency. My Starting weight this round was 203 but as of November when I took things to a new level I was at 190. I weighed in today at 181.4 which is the lowest I have been on over a year. My goal was to hit below 180 before my Christmas Vacation (December 20th) but I don’t think I’ll make it, however I know I’ll be very close. Below are my current up to date weight graph from My Fitness Pal. Feel free to connect with me over there by clicking here.
I’m excited to see that Ampicillin 500mg has started shipping. If you placed your pre-order you should have your copy any day now (if you don’t already). We are also running a special on the Beachbody Ultimate Reset which will save you $30 off of retail until 12/16/12, you can learn more about it here. If you have been thinking of doing the Ultimate Reset this might be a good time to take advantage. On a similar note, Team Beachbody permanently decreased the cost of the supplement Cordastra by $5 so I wanted to pass that info on as well.
I will be starting a few Brand New Challenge Groups in the New Year (January) so when those New Years resolutions hit you I’d recommend getting involved in one of them. They will limited to the amount of people I can add so be sure to contact me if you’d like to get included. You can learn more about our Exclusive Challenge Groups here. As of now, there will be one for Les Mills Combat and Insanity…hopefully more to come. Stay tuned for updates.
Well that’s what’s going on here in my neck of the woods, I’m excited for this time of year, my kids are beside themselves counting down the days until Christmas. Stay focused and stay on task, push play and do your nutrition right and positive things will happen.
Yours in Success,
