Week 2 in the SHOP

1 week down and 2 to go!

Change is hard at first shift shop week 1Today our RAMP UP fitness program is taking us to 35 minute workouts with alternating HIIT and strength training days with a rest/active rest day on Sunday. Let me just be honest. I am RESTING on Sunday!

We were faced with our first “big” temptation of the program last weekend as we traveled to my home town for a family reunion. Our plan of attack: BE PREPARED.

We sliced apples & red peppers, took plenty of water and Shakeology packets for a quick meal on the go! And for those temptations that would later come – a batch of Cookie Dough Energy balls to the rescue.

We enjoyed ourselves – stayed in control and allowed ourselves a small indulgence.

Then we came back and BOUNCED right back on track!

Too often people allow their travels and slip ups to totally derail them but you only FAIL if you STOP trying.

Today the 5am alarm went off and we were up and at it!!!

Shift Shop week 2

 

The SHIFT has us changing up our meal plan this week reducing our starchy carbs and increasing our greens and proteins along with the 10 minute increase in the workout length!

Here’s what our week looks like:

Meal Plan Week of July 31

The ENERGIZE is something I drink DAILY before my workouts and the Recover/Shakeology is a post workout replenish! I prefer the Performance recover but too much dairy causes me belly and skin issues!

I’ve tried to do a few days of an extra Shakeology shaken with water and a few days of Recover but this week I am going to try a half and half combo! It makes such a difference in the way I feel and my sore muscles are telling me to try something new!

I am excited to kick off another round of the SHIFT SHOP!

In just two weeks one of my launch party guests is down 8 pounds and another is down 4!

Another challenger is down 5 in just WEEK 1

Another pulled out a pair of shorts that were “embarrassingly uncomfortable” less than a week ago

And the list goes on and on!!!

How the Shift Shop Meal Plan works

I couldn’t be more EXCITED to officially kick off my Shift Shop LAUNCH PARTY tomorrow!!!

dont talk shift SHIFT SHOP

New programs are ALWAYS exciting – and bring new light into my home fitness world and what I can do for others but after participating in the OFFICIAL COACH TEST GROUP this spring and seeing first hand the POSSIBILITIES of this program I have learned we all have so much MORE potential that lies deep within us and when you MAKE THE SHIFT incredible things can happen.

And now – I get to instill that potential and BELIEF into others!

You dont' have to be great to start

The workouts are amazing and the motivation provided by Chris Downing, the trainer paving the way is unparalleled but honestly – the FUEL we put into our bodies is what DRIVES the results you can see!

BUT – HOW?

How does it work???

HERE’S THE BREAKDOWN:

WEEK 1 Get rid of the foods that are holding you back and start with a better balance of carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats with carbs being at the forefront, mostly from fruits and veggies with a few starches (yams and potatoes) and legumes (beans and peas) thrown in.

WEEK 2 As your body adapts and the workouts increase in length, it’s time to accelerate your results and cut back on the starchy carbs while increasing proteins, veggies, and healthy fats.

WEEK 3 Here is where everything comes together. You are working out at your peak while eating your cleanest. Starchy carbs are eliminated to make way for your best results—and although it’s a challenging week—you can help ward off your cravings with Shakeology, the superfood supplement shake designed to support your nutrition goals without sacrificing results.

Chocolate covered Strawberry Shakeology

I mean…who doesn’t want chocolate covered strawberries for breakfast?!?!

The one thing I’m missing/was missing from, what had become, my daily breakfast a few months ago was my LOVE CRUCH Peanut Butter & Chocolate granola on top of my shakeo bowl each morning!! It gave the perfect little crunch and truly felt like such an indulgence!!

However it doesn’t EXACTLY fit into my Shift Shop test group meal plan so I decided to improvise and this chopped topping was just what I needed!

Chocolate covered strawberry shakeo

WHAT YOU NEED:

1/2 cup coconut water
6oz water
1 scoop vegan chocolate shakeo
1 cup spinach
1 cup chopped berries, divided (1/2 blended and 1/2 on top)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Ice

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO: Blend, top with remaining strawberries & ENJOY!
