Insanity Max: 30 Week 6 in review, Week 7 Meal plan

6 weeks down and 2 to go! I can’t believe I am in the homestretch!!!

This last week was a little different but challenging yet still!

I had an absolutely AMAZING weekend in the ‘burgh for Pittsburgh’s Super Friday and our Dream Team Celebration Saturday.

I got to meet our CEO Carl Daikeler:

I got to meet AND workout with the creator of the 21-day fix – Autumn Calabrese and try out her new 21-day fix EXTREME:

Of course we worked out…

Surround yourself with people who lift you higher, inspiration, live workout, insanity workout

 

But we also celebrated and ate, and ate, and ate some more!

So needless to say I needed a jumpstart for week 6 – enter a simple little cleanse – the 3-day REFRESH!

Sometimes its hard to get back in the swing of things. I’m a routine type of person. Keep me on my routine and I’m as happy as can be. Stray from that – and watch out! It wasn’t easy jumping back in…I could feel the bad nutrition choices lingering in my body but I knew the easiest way was to JUST DO IT – so I did!

Monday was a typical day and then I started the 3-day refresh on Tuesday. The guide says to do “moderate exercise” so I stayed with the modifier in Insanity Max: 30 on both Wednesday and Thursday but went full out Friday morning – what can I say I was feeling REFRESHED!!!

If you haven’t heard of this yet or given it a try – please consider it! I am not big on diets, cleanses etc… but this is different!

You can read more about What is the 3-day Refresh on a prior post but your daily meals look a little something like this —->

You really are eating all day long – its simple, vegan, small meals, some shakes and a few really good night sleeps! Trust me!

By Friday morning, the bloat was gone, I was down 3 pounds, 3 inches, rested and ready to continue on with my healthy eating habits!

These just goes to show you how important your nutrition is! I never missed a workout but that bloat was BAD! But hey – I’m back on track!!!

I wrapped up the week with a morning sweat mesh with my #1 by my side. We have a jam packed weekend so I got a jump start on my next week’s meal plan and off to music class and SAMs club we go!

Blue Moon Shakeology

There’s something about the sweetness of the fruit mixed with the chocolate shakeology and the consistency from the frozen fruit that makes this combo a huge winner in our house!

New month – New week!!!

Anyone stuck in a food coma after the long holiday weekend? I’ll be honest….getting my workouts in was no problem-I even doubled up a few days but oh the struggle for me has been in the kitchen! I love sweets and have such a hard time just saying “no”- my 80/20 rule has been drifting more towards a 60/40 and I can feel it and see it! Its those darn COOKIES and I know that struggle will continue to tempt me all month long as December is here and the jingle bells start ringing and the Christmas cookies are baking! For me – its time to FOCUS!!!! We have just over 3 weeks before Christmas and Insanity Max 30 is being released TODAY!!! It’s time to focus on my nutrition-who’s with me???

I absolutely love finding ways to take old favorites and spin them into healthy, delicious meals! After failing a few times, I finally had success with my Vegetti gadget from Amazon and let me tell you – zucchini pasta is delicious!!!

This meal took all of 5 minutes start to finish and I topped it with some ground turkey mixed with all natural crushed tomatoes – and got myself a very healthy, fast, filling lunch!!! 
 
WHAT YOU NEED:
(per person/per serving)
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1/4 pound cooked pound of ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup crushed tomatoes
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • sea salt and pepper
 
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
  1. Heat oil in pan over medium heat
  2. Spiral the zucchini and sauté for 3-4 minutes with desired sea salt and pepper
  3. Top with meat sauce
  4. ENJOY!
*For all my 21-day fixers – this meal would be 1-2 green containers (zucchini and tomatoes…assuming you use the tomatoes that have no added salt or sugar!!!) and 1 red and 1 teaspoon!
