This week I have been ON it. Very focused and on my game again mentally and back to eating the way I need to eat for my body to work at its best. I have pretty much confirmed that gluten is my problem. I cannot tell you how sad this makes me. Eating gluten free isn’t very hard and honestly most of my favorite recipes are gluten free already so it’s not a big transition. And when I think about it, most of the gluten in my diet came from junk so in that way it’s good – no random cookie runs. But when coupled with eliminating dairy and sugars it starts to be overwhelming sometimes. The sugar but isn’t a food sensitivity issue. It’s an addiction issue. I am a sugar addict and the amount of sugar in many processed foods is enough to spiral me out of control. I eat fruit and I’m fine. Same with honey, maple, and agave added to recipes/oats. I can do a lot with those for sure…but in general these new realities are just a new challenge for me to tackle right now. But I’m tackling it head on and noticing that when I eat according to my body’s needs I feel freaking amazing and my workouts are incredible 🙂
Well team, I am a few days away from finishing the core of Focus T25 (alpha + beta phases). 10 weeks of work. I have enjoyed the process but now it’s time to move on and start looking at my workouts and my goals and figuring out what to do next. I think I FINALLY got this straightened out today with the help of Team Tenacity HCIC (head coach in charge) Shaina:
Octoer 14 – Focus T25 Gamma Strength Hybrid (4 weeks)
November 11 – Insanity: Asylum Volume 1 (4 weeks)
Whenever it arrives in the mail (around December 10) – P90X3
This is going to be a challenging push for me this year between the holidays and these intense programs. Gamma phase is stupid intense, Asylum is well where crazy people go, and P90X3 is built to shred. I am stepping out of my comfort zone again like I did when I determined Insanity would be my workout du jour and making myself work hard because I know I CAN and because I know that I THRIVE on the insanity. I thrive on workout programs that make me want to cry. If I didn’t realize that before, I realize it now because while this is going to be crazy, I am so excited for the changes that I will see in my body.
On top of working the heck out of my workouts, I’m setting up THREE challenge groups right now:
1. October 21st – Lose a Turkey Challenge – Between the 21st and Thanksgiving – how intense can you be and how many inches/lbs can you shed? We will motivate and encourage each other along with my fellow team cup coaches to stay on track through Halloween and right up until Thanksgiving. There will be sweat, tears, and prizes. Pretty much an awesome push. Purchase of any challenge pack is required and please contact me if you are interested in joining and need help with picking your workout. Purchases should be made this week to be ready to start on time!!
2. November 4th – Shakeology Taste Test – If you have been wanting to try Shakeology but have been turned off by the idea of having to purchase an entire 30 day supply at one time this is for you. We will all use the new Shakeology sampler (2-chocolate, 1-vanilla, 1-greenberry) and try new flavors and recipes. The great part about this is that this will help you see the benefits of Shakeology with 4 days in a row of tasting and also give you an opportunity to see which flavor is for you before you buy your large bag.
3. November 11th – Asylum: Tenacity Style – This is my personal workout starting November 11th and I invite all who want to join me with this to the group. You can join this group if you want to start the program on this day with me whether you need to buy the program or not. If you need to pick it up or want to know exactly what it is, just click here!
If any of those sound like a challenge group for you – please email me – kimbfitblog @ gmail.com and put the name of the challenge as the subject line and let me know so I can add you to the group.
Lastly – new coaches to my team get a bonus box this month. Some fitness goodies and team peri to help you get started right with Team Tenacity will come to you 🙂 Questions about becoming a coach or what the deal is with coaching? Shoot me an email. Note that all coaches get 25% off of everything Beachbody has to offer, so if you are a workout junkie or a Shakeology devotee, you save a pretty penny monthly. Sign up here if you are ready right now to join or if you are going to sign up for one of my challenges with a purchase, let me know and I’ll help you sign up so you save the max $$.
Ok lots of info so I’m leaving it here for now. I’ll be back with some info on how my Karma Cleanse is going and finishing up Beta Focus T25 🙂
