Hammer & Chisel Updates and a Healthy Recipe Group!

Oh hello there! I hope you all are having a terrific week so far. I thought I'd write a little post about what I've been up to lately and how life has been. I'm currently in week 6 of Hammer & Chisel and loving every minute of it! I'm challenging myself with my weights (I'm using mostly 12's, 15's, and 20's!!!) and I've stuck to the program consistently. This program is seriously my soulmate workout (other than running, which will always be my love!) but I am loving seeing the results and progress that I've made! But truth me told, I can't wait to get my tan on in the summmaaaaaa #whiteassnow #amiright

My favorite workouts lately have been Total Body Hammer and Chisel Cardio. Both of them leave me shaking and energetic all at the same time! I feel on top of the world when I do them! It's crazy that I used to hateeee weight lifting, and now I look forward to it! My body is changing and toning up, and I feel so strong! What's awesome is that all of us coaches are doing it together, and we all feel the same and love having the accountability and support with each other!! If your goals are to tone up and challenge yourself, this program is for you! Contact me for more info and I can share with you how to get started and plug you into one of my accountability groups!

Meals have been good, but not as "healthy" as I'd like. As I mentioned last week, I've had so much food freedom lately, and I'm loving it! But I am also treating my body well and practicing an 80/20 or 90/10 rule when it comes to treats! Last week I enjoyed some Chinese food, pizza, and cookies. This week, I'm craving more plants and veggies! It all balances out because when your body is used to mostly vegetables and superfoods; you will eventually crave those too! Overall, I'm feeling good, lean, and strong! Here's a glimpse into my meals last week!

Free accountability group: February 15-19

I've been thinking lately about how healthy eating can become mundane and repetitive for some of us. Chicken, broccoli, and brown rice can get boooooring, as yummy as it is! SO next week, I am planning on hosting a FREE 5-day group all about making healthy recipes fun and exciting so we don't get bored and we stick to our meal plans! The group will be run via facebook and will include meal ideas, recipes, and accountability! Fill out the form below if you would like more information! Have a great Tuesday, everyone!

PiYo 1 month results: More than you think!

Good morning everyone, and happy Friday! We made it through another week, praise the Lord! I am so excited for this coming weekend! Tomorrow is my bachelorette party so I get to spend the day with some of my favorite ladies! And today is exactly 30 days away from my wedding, AHHHH!!!! I can't wait, I am just so excited!! Today, I thought I'd share my 1 month PiYo results. As many of you know, I started PiYo a little over a month ago, and it has completely changed my life and the way I view my body and my capabilities. I am going to share a before and after (something I have never done!) but I'd like to focus on more than just the physical/weight differences that I have experienced.

The first picture was taken February 16th, my first day of PiYo. And the second picture was yesterday. I've lost 10 lbs and my smaller jeans zip up perfectly, but the biggest difference to me is that look on my face. The girl in the first picture was tired, run down, and felt like she couldn't move her body like she used to. You can just see it on her face. I was dealing with my knee injury and feeling slightly depressed that I wasn't able to run anymore. I felt lost when it came to workouts and didn't know what would be effective for me anymore.

The girl on the right is BEAMING with happiness. Look at that smile! I have seen such changes in my body, from my physical appearance to my abilities. I am able to do the moves in PiYo now and feel strong and beautiful while I do them. I've never experienced anything like that! I never thought yoga or pilates would be something I am so passionate about, but it's completely changed my body and my confidence in what my body can do. I just can't stop smiling.

Now, as a dietitian, I have to mention that nutrition is 80% of the equation when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle! I've really been eating healthier the past month and incorporating as many whole foods as possible. I've also been drinking shakeology every day for the past month, and it has completely changed my life as well! See my previous post "A Dietitian's Take on Shakeology" for a more detailed review. All I can say is I feel like I am having brownie batter every day, and I'm losing weight. Win-win in my book!

Lastly, I have been filling my belly with whole, nutritious foods. I am craving vegetables and big 'ol salads! Last night, I made a yummy tuna salad in a huge mixing bowl with arugula, kale, spinach, tomatoes, and bell peppers! It was DELICIOUS! The more whole foods you eat, the more on top of the world you feel. Having whole fruit, vegetables, proteins, healthy fats, and whole food carbs make a world of difference when it comes to your health, weight, and energy levels.

I'm so excited to see what this second month of PiYo will bring me. And I will end the program 3 days before my wedding...PERFECT! I will definitely post those results too. If any of you are interested in doing PiYo, please contact me at TveenRD@gmail.com! I would LOVE to be your coach and help you get the results you want. I can't keep this workout to myself and would love to see everyone experience the changes and confidence I have experienced in the last month. So don't hesitate! Email me and we can get started together!
