Already have Beachbody On Demand that’s ok you can still upgrade to this feature too, you will just be charged the difference that’s still owed and will not receive the challenge pack, so its just the Beachbody On Demand.

I’m so excited for this new program, I was stuck between what workout I was going to do next and wanted to try out two of the programs but didn’t want to have to buy both, but now I can have both of them and any new ones that come out for the year!! Honestly this is the best deal EVER!! A normal challenge pack is $189 dollars. For that price you only get 1 workout, Shakeology and the containers, so for an extra $40 you can get EVERY workout Beachbody has to offer and then any new one they come out with throughout the year!! Total win in my opinion!

SIGN UP HERE NOW!!

You may also cancel your current membership and sign up for the challenge pack as well if you want to take advantage of the Shakeology and the containers as well. Contact me today for more information!

Still not sure what this Beachbody on Demand is all about? Well basically its the Netflix for workouts!! Over $6000 dollars worth of workouts for $231 dollars. That’s cheaper then a gym membership, $0.63 cents a day to workout and a month of Shakeology and the famous portion controlled container system for that low price why not give it a try!!

Transformation 2 months progress 

*this post contains affiliate links

I can’t believe how far I’ve come in this short amount of time. The difference in my mind and body have completely changed. I am in shock that I was able to do this in 2 months with Beachbody’s Country Heat workout and walking near the end because of my back injury. I followed the program and eat with the portion controlled containers and stuck to it! There was lots of obstacles to over come in the month that’s for sure, but I didn’t let it stop me, I just kept pushing on.

Honestly, there were times when I felt like giving up, mostly when I put my back out from doing the Core De Force preview workout, yeah that happened, but I didn’t let it consume me I made sure I was eating on plan and just kept chugging along. I have to thank all my accountability group challengers for helping stay on track too!!

I did all this while making and eating the foods I love, sure I had to adjust some this here and there to make them plan approved but honestly who couldn’t benefit from eating better.

ARE YOU AT A PLATEAU?

img_5563
*This post contains affiliate links
ARE YOU AT A PLATEAU?
It happens to all of us at some point. But there are few things we need to consider.

You are stepping up your game, you stepped out of your comfort zone! You are eating healthier, you got this!! Then all of a sudden BAM!! The scale has stopped moving. You think to yourself whats going on here I’m doing all of the right things, why am I not loosing weight.You haven’t changed anything. You’re doing everything exactly the same as before, so why isn’t your body responding now?

You, my friend, have hit a plateau.

Before you read the steps below on how to break a Plateau make sure you have taken your measurements have they gone down? Are your clothes fitting looser? You may think you need to gauge your weight-loss on the scale but guess what as I always say the scale is and ASSHOLE!! yeah I said it and I will say it again its an ASSHOLE!!! and you shouldn’t judge your weight loss solely on the scale. Its only a number and it doesn’t define us.

I want you to think about how far you have come already and the changes you have made thus far into your journey. I always make sure to take those pictures along the way at least every two weeks so that you know how much progress you have made. Second I always take measurements because those never lie to you!! Third I have an outfit that I always put on to gauge as well.

There are a few things we can do in the event of a plateau,

  1. If you are using the portion control containers from Beachbody maybe you need to move down a container level. Go back to your nutrition guide and recalculate your intake amount.
  2. Track everything you eat, are you being truthful of everything you are putting in your mouth? If you aren’t using the container system what about an app to track your calories and food intake? I like to use Loseit app for this!! I also you it to track my weight and it also stores a lot of my recipes as well. I also like using a wipe off board to track my container system this works great for me when I’m doing the container method.
  3. Are you getting enough sleep? You should try and get an average of 6 to 8 hours of sleep a night. I know when I don’t sleep well, I’m over tired and then I end up eating like crap the next day because I’m to tired to plan my day out and just reach for what ever available.Sleep is so important!
  4. WATER WATER WATER!! Are you getting enough water. I cant stress this enough this is probably one of the most important things up your water game!! If you aren’t a water drinker now is the time to start that. If your not a fan of water add fruit to it or lemons and cucumber or any flavor option, that doesn’t come in the form of a squeeze bottle. Flavor it with healthy options.
  5. Try switching up your workout routine, if your not lifting weights maybe try incorporating those, or boost up your intensity. Maybe now your just going through the motions and need a change. Or maybe just adding an extra 10 mins to your workout will kick it up a notch. I’m not a huge fun of long workout routines. I don’t like feeling like my whole day is dedicated to it. So maybe adding in some intervals in to would be a good mix.
  6. Still not losing getting anywhere if you want to try Beachbody’s 3 Day refresh as well its a great option. you can read more about it here!
  7. Maybe you need a challenge, a push. I find when I run a accountability group I do awesome with a little competition and the accountability of checking in daily with someone makes a huge difference. If you don’t have a coach or someone to talk to, in order to check in with I highly suggest you join one of my groups, email me for more info or find me on Facebook for more info on when my next group is starting!

I’m here to help you meet your fitness and weight loss goals. 
Reach out to me today and we will overcome your fitness plateau together.
