If you follow me on social media (Instagram or Facebook) you know that I was traveling last week to Capri and the Amalfi Coast in Italy. I earned an all expenses paid trip for my husband and I for being the Top Coach in all of the Team Beachbody Coaching Network. Each year Beachbody takes the top 10 coaches and a guest to an incredible all inclusive/expenses paid vacation. It seriously is the trip of a lifetime and I have been in the Top 10 for 4 years in a row now and I enjoy getting to spend time with other couples and Corporate. It just really fills my motivation cup when I spend time with people who challenge me to continually improve. But, the one downside is that we eat a LOT of food! I mean seriously, when in Italy you should drink wine and bread oh and for sure have pasta! I mean, I didn’t HAVE to have it all but I did and I don’t feel bad about it. I loved the experience and I had a wonderful time.
Due to my indulgences, when we got home on Sunday night was a major detox. We had a serious detox from wine and carbs. Serious jet lag that lasted until Wednesday and definitely a few serious sugar cravings! So it sure did make getting back on my workout and nutrition a little more challenging. I showed up to my basement with my laptop and my Beachbody On Demand to start the first workout of Shaun Week. It is a Beachbody On Demand (BOD) exclusive program and I committed to running a group with my new and existing customers who wanted to participate.
Each morning you log into BOD and there is a new workout loaded. I love that you don’t know what is coming until that morning. Monday was Insane Basics (33 min), Tuesday was Pure Cardio (27 mins), Wednesday was Insane Weights (33 min), Thursday was 25 Abs (28 min) and Friday was Ripsanity (43 min). Each workout has been challenging, yet doable, and it has really pushed me outside of my fitness comfort zone. I would say I am in pretty darn good shape. I have been working out religiously for the past 6 years and eating very clean. I would say hands down I am in the best shape of my life. I will say that every time I do a new program I am challenged. I learn that I still have areas to improve, that I can still get stronger and that perfection is not reality! This is a JOURNEY and a way of life. There are going to be ups and downs, roadblocks and crappy workouts. But, a crappy workout is better than a workout you do not do at all.
By Thursday I felt back to normal and could really push myself in my workouts. The jet lag was gone, my food was back on track and I felt good! I was starting to get a little bummed that this was only a 1 week program. But then Shaun came out with an entire month calendar so that you can continue on your fitness journey. Why is this awesome?? Well for starters, the first week you do a workout you definitely don’t have it completely down pat. When you are trying to learn new moves you might not be giving it your all. So being able to continue on and do the workouts again will only help you improve your form, technique and your results because you can push harder. Secondly, this is a great way to PREPARE you for the launch of the next Beachbody Workout, Shift Shop that will be available in July! You can easily roll from my Shaun Group to Shift Shop and I can literally keep you accountable for the entire summer! Does that sound like something you would like to do? Fill out the application below to join! (I must be your assigned coach & I can help you get signed up with me if I am not already your coach or reach out to your current coach for support)
Today was Ripsanity for me and legit it kicked my butt!!! Seriously I love cardio and weights together and I can tell you that my triceps were legit shaking at the end of the workout. I am so glad I have the Beachbody Performance Line because Energize, Hydrate and Recover are a must this week. I know I would have much less energy and I would of been way more sore without it. I am definitely in favor of the supplementation.
So what does the 30 day calendar look like?
Lets talk about the 30 day workout calendar!!! The 30 day calendar is the perfect combination of strength, cardio, yoga and rest! I can tell already that this is going to really be a great way to improve your strength and help you get to your goals. Also, I am going to be sharing with you my meal plan where over the next 3 weeks I will teach you how to tweak your nutrition to get the best results. I have some tricks up my sleeve that have worked really well for me at increasing my protein/fats and lowering my carbs. I find that my body responds best to this approach and it has definitely been a way to get the best muscle definition.
