How To Stay Fit On Vacation

How To Stay Fit On Vacation

  How To Stay Fit On Vacation   Its been almost a month since my last post, and while I SHOULD be have writing blogs on vacation, I didn’t!  We all need to unplug once in a while.  However, what I WAS able to do during this holiday, was lose weight and stay toned!  (Which is a first!)  If you want to learn how to stay fit while on vacation, then read on!   Usually it’s the same old routine and battle when I go away, especially if it’s to a different country.  I spend the month prior obsessing about getting into ‘bikini shape’ by dieting, working out every day, and trying on my bathing suits a million times in the mirror.  Only problem is, after about 48 hours at the resort or vacation rental, I have pretty much ruined all of my progress!  That gives me a day or two to flaunt my hard work, and then the rest of time I’m a bloated mess.    This year I did something a little differently!     30 days prior to my family vacation I started a Challenge Group for Piyo, which entails daily check ins to prove I did the workout, 1 meal replacement with Shakeology a day, and the motivation I need.  Piyo is low impact and really focuses on strengthening your core and building lean muscle mass.  You know what that muscle mass allows me to do?  Well, essentially it makes me burn more calories while I am resting by boosting my metabolism.  So those long flights and layovers, I am burning more cals by sitting...

Low Glycemic Foods

Low Glycemic Foods

  Here is a phrase we have been hearing more and more! Low Glycemic Foods!  What are Low Glycemic Foods, which ones are High Glycemic and how does a food being Low Glycemic help us lose weight, amongst many other benefits!?   Before I let you in on all the amazing ‘Low GI’ foods you can feel confident eating, let’s just make sure the basics are covered and we all know what the glycemic index is and how it effects your body.   According to Wikipedia, the Glycemic Index is: The glycemic index or glycaemic index (GI) is a number associated with a particular type of food that indicates the food’s effect on a person’s blood glucose (also called blood sugar) level.  The number typically ranges between 50 and 100, where 100 represents the standard, an equivalent amount of pure glucose. Foods that are rated as ‘high’ on the GI index are processed by the human body and enter the blood stream much faster then ‘low’ rated foods, which can cause spiking of blood sugar, hunger and weight gain.  Foods that are lower on the GI index will keep you feeling full for longer, will not spike your blood sugar and allow you to essentially eat more calories. In many studies, a Low GI diet will have better results than a low fat diet, prevent diabetes, coronary heart disease, macular degeneration and other ailments, where as a High GI diet contributes to obesity!  This is the secret little key for keeping you in optimal shape!   LOW GI- is 55 or less MEDIUM GI- is 56-69 HIGH GI- is...
An Effective 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse

An Effective 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse

An Effective 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse     Let’s face it, the grocery store, restaurants and the cafeteria are full of a lot of crap.  Day in and day out, we start to build up some of this nutritionally void food and carry it around inside of our bodies.  Gross!  If you are lacking energy, can’t seem to lose weight, or feeling a little lethargic, it’s time to CLEANSE! Now, I am not talking about starving yourself for a week, or even a day, I am talking about an effective 3 day Shakeology cleanse to kick start your fitness quest!  Shakeology is a great product to use for cleansing out your system from junk food, as it contains over 70 SUPER nutritious ingredients that you simply cannot find elsewhere.  It is completely balanced for your sugar intake, clean carbs, protein as well as vitamins and minerals. Many people like to start a 3 day cleanse before the beginning of a new workout program.  This is perfect timing, as you want to rid the toxins in your body FIRST as they bind to the fat cells inside you.  Once those toxins are gone, the fat cells are free to be blasted down by your exercise efforts, instead of stubbornly sticking in those problem areas, like the thighs and belly. What makes this particular Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse different from others, is it does not restrict your calories down to dangerous levels, or put you on some intensive liquid only regime.  Without starvation and without hard to swallow concoctions, you will be able to jump start your weight loss efforts while...
