One week down of Core de Force and one week down of WHOLE 30 and this mama is feeling fantastic!!!
And while I am trying hard to keep the scale victories for my Day 30 celebration I did spot some ab definition on Day 5 which is just a little extra reassuring – that YES – in fact this process IS WORKING!
Now don’t get me wrong…we’ve been WORKING it.
This program isn’t easy – and its SO DIFFERENT from the other programs I’ve completed in the last 2.5 years.
But who doesn’t LOVE a good challenge!?!?!
I can FEEL the results and the way my clothes fit are backed up by my sore muscles and increasing energy!
If I had to pick the hardest thing to adjust to – its been the length of the workouts. Two of last week’s workouts are 47 minutes. And while the time flies by, planning for that in the morning has taken a little extra effort. But let’s be real – nothing worth it comes easy?!?!
My hubs and I have been really trying hard to stick to our morning workouts and we’ve been prepping like CRAZY!
Lots of lean meats, veggies, fresh fruits, healthy fats and oh those sweet potatoes – I could eat them with every meal!!!
We did a big family trip to Costco over the weekend and spent a good two hours cooking/chopping/cleaning/roasting/grilling our meals for the week!
Here’s what the game plan looks like for week 2 of Core de Force:
I am personally doing Whole 30 – which is pretty close to the approved food items on Core de Force – yet a little different.
Here’s an example meal plan for week 2 for someone NOT following whole 30.
NOTE: With the additional increase in activity this week, there is one more PURPLE added in. Its important to eat ENOUGH to stay fueled for the day!!!
And lucky for YOU this program is NOW AVAILABLE for home gym too!
You can get your Core de Force Challenge pack here:
But make sure you fill out the form below so you can be part of my Core De Force LAUNCH PARTY!!
Trust me when I say…there’s POWER in numbers!!! The programs are amazing and the Shakeology provides your body with nutrition you can’t get elsewhere but its the SUPPORT and ACCOUNTABILITY that hold it all together – and help you hold it together!!!
I kind of feel like a kid on Christmas! One of the biggest benefits of being an Elite coach is the opportunity to attend our EXCLUSIVE Leadership Event, most recently held in Coronado California.
Not only did we have access to 3 LIVE booty-whooping workouts with the Core De Force co-creators, Joel Freeman and Jericho McMatthews, but we also got the opportunity to pick up a SIGNED copy of Core De Force before ALLLL the rest of the network has the option to purchase it!
You may recognize them if you’re familiar with the Les Mills hit programs – Body Pump and Combat but this is a BRAND NEW MMA-inspired format and its launching October 31st!
As soon as I got home my hubby and I dived in and got started!
The nutrition plan is SIMILAR to that of other Beachbody Portion Fix systems but don’t think its the same old same old – the containers are there, but you don’t have to use them…and there’s some twists and turns as you progress through the 30 days!!!
Here’s a glimpse into the MMA speed workout from Day 1:
And don’t worry if you’re thinking the combo moves look a little tricky…we all look like baby giraffes learning to walk at first but you will quickly find your rhythm!!
But its not all kicks and punches either! You will be building your strength (no equipment necessary!!) with workouts like this one we did on Day 2:
The workouts are great – amazing in fact. Day 2 was quite possibly one of the most CHALLENGING workouts I’ve ever completed…but like all fitness “programs” the results are driven not just by how hard you hit the sweat session but what you fuel your body with.
The nutrition guide breaks it down to 4 plan options: A, B, C or D.
Step 1 is to Figure out your Caloric needs:
Once you know your plan for calories you can check out how many servings of each container you get to eat per day.
Like I mentioned previously – the brackets can be correlated to the Portion Fix color coordinated containers – OR – you can use the measurements provided in the guide!
My calculations land me in Plan A – which equates to:
Dinner: Salmon burger with asparagus, cooked with olive oil (1 red, 1 green 1 spoon)
Here’s a full week PLAN A Meal Plan as an example:
*NOTE: The plan does change slightly as you progress through your 30 days. As the workouts increase in intensity you will be adding in more foods in weeks 2 and 3 and going back to the orignal plan in week 4. Don’t worry – the step by step is ALL outlined in the nutrition guide! This is just part of helping YOU optimize YOUR RESULTS!
I am personally following a MODIFIED Whole 30 Meal plan along with my 30 Day journey with Core De Force. Here’s how I have updated my meals and scheduled throughout my day.
So you have your challenge pack with your workout program and Shakeology and the meals are ON POINT…but you have to also remember WATER. This is something I stress to my clients DAILY throughout our online accountability group!
If you’re not used to eating small(er) meals spaced out – OR – if you’re used to grazing all day long you may not be getting adequate water in.
You should aim to drink at least half your body weight in ounces. This is key – especially when starting something new!!!
As you can see from reading thus far…There’s no guess work here people!
The program includes it all! The full package outlining how much to eat of what foods – when to do what workouts and superfoods to fuel your body…and mind!
The last thing, and perhaps most importantly thing to decide is to COMMIT.
To make that decision that you’re going to push hard and do it.
But trust me…you’re not alone!
We are in this together and you will not just have me as your personal 1:1 coach/mentor but you have the opportunity to participate in my LAUNCH party and join forces with other people who are just where you are and working to become a better version of themselves!!!
This is your open INVITATION!
