How to Save Money on Shakeology #1:  HOME DIRECT

When you first order Shakeology, be sure to choose the Home Direct option to get free shipping (you can cancel that anytime).  You can also modify your shipping dates and flavor options at any time in your Teambeachbody.com account.

How to Save Money on Shakeology #2:  ORDER A SALE CHALLENGE PACK

When you get a Challenge Pack through teambeachbody.com, it comes with a full program and a month of Shakeology at a reduced rate.  There is usually a Challenge Pack on sale for $140 – just a little bit more than Shakeology alone.  For example, right now Shakeology is $124.95. For just $15 more, you can get one of these challenge packs:
-PiYo
-21 Day Fix
-21 Day Fix Extreme

To me, it’s a no-brainer.  I’d rather spend $15 more to get a program I don’t have already AND Shakeology.  As a customer, you will only have one opportunity to purchase a challenge pack.  However, the best option is below (#3).

How to Save Money on Shakeology #3:  SIGN UP AS A COACH

Beachbody coaches get 25% off Shakeology, so if you’re going to order more than one month you’ll recoup your coaching fee of $39.95 in two orders.

BY FAR THE BEST DEAL:  Your coaching fee is waived if you buy a challenge pack when you sign up.  By far the best deal is to sign up with a $140 Sale Challenge pack, get a program AND Shakeology, and start getting Shakeology at a discount month two.

Don’t let the term “coach” scare you!  Many people sign up to be a coach for the sole reason to get the Shakeology discount.  Beachbody set up the coaching opportunity in such a way that even for those who don’t want to do the business, can save 25% on products like Shakeology.   The Shakeology discount alone is worth it if you plan on using Shakeology on a regular basis. There is a one time fee of $39.95 and a monthly account maintenance fee of $15.95. The monthly fee covers your two web sites that Beachbody provides to you, your coaches online office (COO).

Of course if you’d love to do more with your Beachbody business than just get a discount on Shakeology, I’m here to help you with that as well.  This is why I decided to become a Beachbody Coach.

How to MAKE MONEY on Shakeology #4: EARN THROUGH REFERRALS

Also, as a coach, if you decide to recommend Shakeology to others you will earn a 25% commissions on every sale.   Once your friends see your success, they will ask you what you’re doing – so it’s easy to just give them your link to order when they do. The commission isn’t just on the first shipment either, it’s for every month your friend continues with Shakeology.  Start referring them to the challenge groups as well, start earning even MORE.

21 Day Fix review

21 Day Fix Review

abbysilerfitness.com, 21 day fix, clean eating, lose weight, 21 day plan
So what comes with The 21 Day Fix:

21 Day Fix Eating Plan

abbysilerfitness.com, 21 day fix, lose weight, clean eating, diet, home workouts

A simple eating plan where you don’t have to worry about counting ounces, cups, and calories.
You get seven color-coded containers that are different sizes for measuring green = veggies, purple = fruits, red = protein, yellow = carbs, blue = healthy fats, orange = seeds/dressing, teaspoon = oils.
You figure out your calorie level, which is based on your weight. There are four different calorie levels and each involves a different number of containers. I was in the 1,200-1,499 calorie range and was supposed to eat 3 servings of veggies, 2 servings of fruit, 4 servings of protein, 2 servings of carbs, 1 serving of healthy fats, 1 serving of seeds/dressing and 2 teaspoons of oil/nut butter per day.
You’re encouraged to drink plenty of water, but you can still have coffee and tea.
There’s room for treats like wine, oatmeal cookies, trail mix and chocolate as well. <— woot woot! Fair warning on this one, for wine the portion size is 4 oz a.k.a 2 sips. :)

The book includes a list of food ideas for each container and a few basic recipes.

For even more amazing recipes Autumn’s new cookbook FIXATE is amazing!

Bored Easily

Okay I changed things….if you have followed me for any amount of time you now know that I get bored easily. That actually might be an understatement actually. My husband always jokes with me….oh look a tree…yeah that’s what he will say to me because my train of thought and focus changes so frequently. Hey, I am who I am and I definitely keep things interesting that’s for sure. I can also go off on rambling tangents…probably have noticed that about me as well. Okay, back on point….

Where was I?

Oh yeah, I get bored easily. Well, it has happened again. I was absolutely loving body beast. I have been getting amazing results and starting to really see the definition come in. BUT…my sister is doing the 21 day fix right now. I was also wanting to really zero in on my nutrition and just decided now was a good time to refocus. So, as of Monday I’m doing another round of 21 day fix….and here is the thing, I’m counting on everyone else to keep me on track and focused for the next 21 days. I’m doing this…start to finish :).

My awesome planner with 21 day fix stickers!

I still need to take my before pictures and measurements other than weight and body fat so those will be posted either later or I will wait until I’m done with this round (or the next one) to post the difference. If you haven’t noticed yet I don’t have any before/after pictures of me up really yet. I know I should, it is just something I’m not ready to do yet. First, I’m still on my journey, I’m not where I want to be or even close for that matter. BUT soon my friends, soon I will get there and post transformation pictures!

Okay back to the point again….:) see I get off track and bored easily!!! That’s why I’m loving beachbody on demand so much (granted body beast and 21 day fix aren’t included unless you buy the dvd’s). You get to pick which program you want and what workout what day etc. The challenge du jour is amazing too. Each day the people at beachbody “prescribe” a workout for the day jumping around and sampling all the different programs!

Budget Friendly Home Gym

budget friendly gym layout

One of the biggest excuses that I get from people who want to get into working out is the cost. They either don’t want to pay for a gym membership or think that having a home gym is too expensive. WRONG. A gym membership is expensive but working out at home is more convenient, cheaper, and no pressure/intimidation. Here I am going to bust the budget conundrum of working out.  

Most of the Beachbody programs require little to no home equipment to get an amazing workout in and get amazing results. However, there are a few that require some weights etc., such as P90X programs, 21 day fix and Body Beast. So, how do you build your home gym/supply the equipment that you need for these workouts without breaking the bank? Basically, in this post I’m going to go over how I have built my Budget Friendly Home Gym!

My first and favorite equipment that I absolutely love and recommend to everyone is to get a good set of high quality resistance bands. Beachbody   has a great set and I love them. The great thing about bands is the wide range of resistance that they provide and also the portability. I love being able to toss my {small} bag of resistance bands into my travel bag and take them anywhere. It means I can get a great strength training workout in wherever I go no matter what! There are different set options for you to get depending on the amount of resistance you need. Or you can get the ultimate kit that has 10 bands with 5-50 pounds of resistance. So, For $40-120 you can have a set of bands that covers all of your strength training needs. These are all anyone truly needs, honestly. I can even do Body Beast with bands instead of weights. Which is awesome!

band_standardkit_lg

Now you might be wanting to progress from bands to weights or you might not like the idea of bands. Hey, that’s fine, to each their own. I feel like there isn’t as much value in weights as the bands so to do a budget friendly home gym bands are the way to go. BUT , if you are like me and absolutely love dumbbells (I truly do) then what I recommend is shopping around for the right price. In my area, Academy Outdoor and Sports has the best price per pound for dumbbells so that is where I am getting all of mine from. Keeping the budget friendly home gym aspect in mind. I don’t recommend going out and buying a full set of dumbbells all at once. A) you don’t get them at a better price per pound doing this so it isn’t worth it and B) you don’t need all of those weights all at once. What I have been doing is I started with buy a pair of 5lb and 8lb dumbbells. After I started to outgrow those I bought a pair of 10lbs. Buy your dumbbells as you need them and grow in strength. Simple as that, no need to go out and spend $200+ all at once for a set when you don’t need them all right now. You will end up spending that much in the end but you will spread it out over a year or two more than likely.

Here is what mine currently looks like:

abbysilerfitness.com, home gym, budget home gym, free weight loss coaching

Keep in mind I have been building mine up for about 2 years now so I didn’t buy this all at once. Also the orange things are my dad’s home creation of a Lebert Equilizer! He is pretty awesome. He also made me my pull up bar that is not pictured as well.

I also have a t-grip bar that I got for my birthday last year. I use this instead of the ez-curl bar. I love it’s versatility. However, it is a little more pricey than the EZ curl bar that Beachbody has. Or click HERE to get your own t-grip barbell!

abbysilerfitness.com, t-grip barbell, workout equipment

t-grip barbell

Additionally to the t-grip bar, weights, homemade equilizer, an resistance bands I have a stability ball which is irreplaceable! They are really inexpensive at Walmart or target….like under $10.

Must Haves:

1. stability ball

2. resistance bands

3. a few dumbbells

that’s it. Nothing fancy. Not a whole dumbbell set. Just a few things that you can probably spend less than $100 on to get you started. That would be less than 2 months of a gym membership. Add in a little beachbody on demand and you are ready to go!

Body Beast Half Marathon Training week 4

Body Beast Half Marathon Training week 4…..Well we are getting ready to start the 4th week of Body Beast and this means a new phase of the program! This phase is the bulk phase. I can definitely say that I’m ready for this phase. In the first three weeks I limited my cardio a little to get my body used to strength training seriously again. This phase I’m planning on adding in 3 days a week of HIIT (high intensity Inverval Training) and then 4 days a week of long duration low load cardio. There is more and more research coming out saying this is the optimized way to fat loss so added in with the body beast hopefully this will optimize me leaning out!! I’m pretty excited for this phase too, I’ve already been seeing quite a bit of change in my muscle definition which is a plus for only 3 weeks in!

I was channeling my inner beast this morning to start the bulk phase! GRRRR!!!

Oh and Don’t forget that the Beachbody Performance line goes on sale today! For the next week there is free shipping for it too! Get yours now!

Beachbody Performance Nutrition

Back to the Body Beast Half Marathon Training week 4 schedule.

Monday: Bulk chest and Turbofire HIIT 15

Tuesday: Bulk legs and run 2 miles

Wednesday: Bulk Arms and Turbofire HIIT 15

Thursday: run 3 miles or beast cardio and beast abs

Friday: Bulk Back and Turbofire HIIT 20

Saturday: Bulk Shoulders and Run 4.5 miles

I’m not going to be posting the schedule at the beginning of the week anymore after this week since the beast schedule doesn’t change. Instead at the end of the week I will post a review of my workouts/schedule as well as the running/cardio schedule for the next week to go along with the beast schedule!

Also be on the lookout for some free documents including a body beast log and half marathon training schedule!

Tuesday: Build: Back and Bi’s
Wednesday: Build Shoulders and run 2 miles
Thursday: Build: Chest/Tri’s

Review of Week 1 Body Beast

So I decided to do a review of week 1 body beast for you!! I absolutely love this program! For the most part I have been using a combination of both resistance bands and dumbbells for the program which is working great for me!

be_logo_k

I’m not going to post any progress pictures etc until  later but so far I am down 1″ in my waist and 3 pounds! Not too bad for dialing in nutrition and strength training for a week!

work in progress, body beast, women's weight loss, women's weight lifting
Build chest and tri’s:  I loved this workout! One of my favorite body parts to work is the tricep! This is one of those muscles on me that builds quickly and shows up leanness fast hitch is always a plus for me. For most of this week o have been using my bands instead of weights. However, on this particular workout I used dumbbells more due to the majority of the lifts being on your back/laying on the ball. I find it easier to use dumbbells instead of resistance bands for these moves, especially the incline press/fly. Total workout time: 48 min

Build Legs: I have to admit, I love working my legs as well. What can I say, I love lifting weights. This workout is going to burn your legs out. Make sure to check your form with some of the moves. Keep your body safe! This workout I definitely used dumbbells a little more similar to chest/tri’s. The main move that you won’t be able to use your bands on will be the step up with reverse lunge. The nature of the step up makes resistance bands impossible. I plan on doing some research to see if there is an alternative that can be done for this move! Total workout time: 38 min

Build back/bi’s: This workout is great for the resistance bands. I actually like the resistance bands better for back and biceps due to the continuous pull that they give compared to the dumbbells. One tip, a modification from the one and only Tony Horton, hammer curls with the bands is hard on your hand if you do it the traditional way. Instead, for a hammer curl turn your hands so palms are face down to work the same muscles but not squish your hands. Total workout time: 50 min

Build shoulders: Just like the back/bi workout this is another that works really well for the bands. Your shoulders will definitely be burnt out at the end of this workout. Tip for after this one, don’t try to do your  hair after because you won’t be able to hold your arms up! With the resistance bands there really isn’t any modification needed to convert these moves from dumbbells to resistance bands! Remember to use lighter weights! Total workout time: 38 min

FREEBIE time!! Fill out the form below for a FREE copy of my updated Body Beast worksheets!

P90X week 7 and Body beast week 2

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great, fun and safe 4th of July! We spent the day on Saturday out at the lake with some great friends! We both only incurred mild roseyness from the sun! Since it is Monday that means it is time for your P90x week 7 and Body Beast week 2 with half marathon hybrid schedule.

Wow, that is a mouthful…..

I have a confession to make….no one is perfect. I dropped the ball a little bit this past week on my training. I did all of my Body Beast workouts as scheduled. However, running workouts took the beating. I only ran once this week. On Thursday I was scheduled to run 3 miles in place of beast cardio. Well, life happens and I slept in. My husband had the day off and didn’t get up at our usual time with me which made me lose all motivation that morning. Oh well, life goes on. I also was supposed to run a 4 mile race on Saturday morning, but, I had to work to cover a post-op patient. Of course, after that happened and we spent the day at the lake enjoying the sun and adult beverages, running was not on the top of my list. Again, life goes on, we are all human. That just means this week I need to buckle down and get my running in if I’m going to do the half marathon in October. I need YOU to help keep me accountable!
Back to the plan. Here it is p90x week 7 and body beast week 2 with half marathon training hybrid workout plan! The way I have formatted the schedules both have running on them, pick which one you are doing and as always adjust the mileage for where you are in your training. In the coming weeks I will post a pure half-marathon training plan for you!

P90X week 7:

Monday chest shoulders & triceps 3 m run

Tuesday: plyometrics

Wednesday back and biceps 1.5 mie run

Thursday yoga

Friday legs and back

Saturday 4 mile run

Sunday rest day

Body Beast week 2:

Monday Build: Legs Run: 1.5m

Tuesday Build: Back/Bi’s

Wednesday Beast:cardio/abs -Or- Run: 3m

Thursday Build: Shoulders

Friday Build: Chest/Tris

Saturday Build:Legs &Long run: 4

Sunday Rest Day
