  1. November Thoughts & 3 Week Extras

    3 Week Extras –

    Perform 100 rope jumps during 2 minutes of your usual “rest” time.  Add a penalty of 3 rope jumps for each rope jump shorted (if any) – AFTER the workout. IOW (In Other Words), if you only get 50 of the prescribed 100, you are to add 150 rope jumps after the workout.

    General Thoughts for November:

    CaptureWe’ve only a few weeks until the holiday season tries to take over our life. From this moment until about the week of Thanksgiving you’ll have a chance to off-set some of your “cheat” eating. But you MUST focus.

    We challenge you to give some deliberate effort to your nutrition and exercise for the next 3 weeks. We’ll help you! Starts to focus today!

    TODAY, we challenge you to:

    1. Clean up your worst meal. If you “cheat” eat at dinner – STOP cheating! Stop it NOW! Choose a “healthy meal” that you know will serve you. Here are some ideas on meals (from breakfast to dinner selections). Plan your meals ahead. If you blow it and don’t eat the “healthy meal” you intended to eat, make a rule right now that you can only eat a single protein bar or shake for that meal NEXT time. That’s it, NOTHING else!  Drink all the water you need.

    2. Do the 3 week extras. For the next 3 weeks we’ll post some extras on our Facebook site for you to do. These will be aimed toward increasing your over-all fitness.

    3. POST your comments! Let’s try this. We are more successful with community support. Community cannot happen without communication. If you accept our challenges, please indicate that you are out there daily. Just add a little comment of accountability, or of encouragement, or of whatever you feel would add to the collective community in positive ways.

    We’ll see you at the studio and/or in the comments!

     

  2. Enjoy a Healthier Thanksgiving

    What if you started your Thanksgiving Day with gratitude for your healthy body and with thanks for the knowledge you’ve gained over the past year with regard to the care of your body. There really is no good reason to overeat today and the following tips may help you toward this end.

    1) Eat Breakfast so you won’t be starving at the next meal.

    2) Don’t snack all day & please do drink lots of water.

    3) Chew your food slowly & watch your portion size. It takes your stomach nearly 20 minutes to signal to your brain that it is full. If you are trying to control your portion size, then slowing down and chewing is crucial. Moreover, chewing your food aids healthy digestion. Breaking foods down more thoroughly ensures proper nutrient absorption and can prevent indigestion issues such as acid reflux.

    You can still enjoy all the fun holiday treats just choose smaller portions and you can enjoy whatever you want.

    4) Don’t waste your time or calories on foods you can enjoy all year.

    5) Lighten up on your cooking. Try to use fat free chicken broth for cooking or use fat free sour cream for dips.

    6) Go easy on the alcohol. Alcohol contains a lot of useless and wasted calories.

    7) BE ACTIVE. Start off the day with a workout. Burning calories early will set the tone for the rest of the day. You may feel guilty when you eat all those sugary snacks later in the day. Stay active throughout the day. Go for a walk after dinner, or try to do some type of activity/exercise every 20 – 30 minutes. Ex: 20 mountain climbers each leg, 10 burpees, 30 jumping jacks, etc.

    If all else fails, commit to regular daily exercise for 45-1 hour over the next two weeks and your body WILL recover….just in time for Christmas, when you can do this all over again! Just saying.
