Fit Pro Business Travel Tips: Workouts on the Road
Yes, this is my EXCITED FACE!
This week I started the 21 Day Fix! A new workout from Beachbody and the creator, Autumn Calabrese, this program not only focuses workouts for variety but also FOOD PORTIONS! Being someone who had her own weight loss journey, there are days STILL where I trip up and want to gorge on a huge cookie or cupcake! It’s okay to indulge, but it also depends on the size and scope of that indulgence – not to mention the frequency! Cheating here and there is okay, but I needed to get back on track with my weekly eating to not slip in sugars and unhealthy snacks when they weren’t needed by my body – because they really never are! I need to focus on FUELING my body strategically!
The program comes with containers, all color coded to help you know which ones are for veggies and which are for fats, etc. Depending on the mathematic count of calories you need a day, you are to eat so many of each container a day (not one of each a day.)
For me, for example, I can have two servings of fruit, 3 of veggies, 4 of proteins, 2 of carbohydrates like tortillas and rice, and also have guidelines for seasonings and oils etc. BTW I don’t use the containers to eat out of persay. I use them as a guide when eating so I know how much proteins to include in my packed lunch, etc.
My Monday snack: Cheese cubes and almonds
Shakeology is still my GO TO breakfast and I don’t usually include any Purples (fruits) as I mix mine with Almond Milk (making it a Red serving.) Simple enough right?
There are 7 workouts included for each day of the week – yoga, pilates, cardio, plyo to include a few. I will continue my running regimen of 3 days a week and include these each day – they are ONLY 30 minutes each! No excuses NOT to fit it in!
The bonus to me doing this is that I’ll also be joined by my Fit Squad Challengers! These guys help ME to stay accountable too so that we all hit our goals and maintain lessons learned to take with us down the road! CONTINUED SUCCESS is KEY! I’m never one to not try something new – especially that makes it easier for me to ACHIEVE what GOALS I’m FOCUSED ON!
Are portions an area you feel you can focus more on?
What trips you up during the day to make this a challenge?
Don’t forget I’m a Beachbody coach who not only DOES the challenge, but also coaches others through their own journies too! I’ll also be doing on a post about WHY I became a Beachbody coach! Email me HERE for more info 😉
