3 Day Shakeology Cleanse

I've been feeling a bit off nutritionally as of late so I'm doing a reset by starting the Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse.  I've not done one yet so this should be interesting especially since I'm in week 3 of my current round of P90X!  Not advisable btw, we'll see how it goes, I did P90X Plyometrics yesterday and made it though, I'm taking that as a good sign.

The Cleanse I'm following looks like this.

SNACK:

How to make Almond Milk


Love this stuff! It's perfect for my morning Chocolate Shakeology!


Ingredients:
1 cup raw almonds
8 cups water


Soak 1 cup almonds in water for 4 hours, rinse and add to 6 cups cold water in a blender...I use the VitaMix. :)


Hit it on high for 30-40 seconds.  Strain through fine strainer and place almond pulp in blender one more time with 2 cups water...hit it again!
Strain pulp from the almond milk, use the cheese cloth to get all the fine particles.
Refrigerate!


My favorite Almond Milk mix with Shakeology is:
1 cup cold water
1 cup fresh home made almond milk
1 medium banana
1 Tbsp peanut butter
5 ice cubs
1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology


Enjoy!

Someone asked about this today and thought I'd post it here.  It's also available on the TeamBeachbody.com site under Eat Smart / Shakeology Recipes as well.

Chocolate Shakeology
Here's how to make it: For each of these delicious recipes, add 1 serving of Chocolate Shakeology and ice to taste (add more ice for a thicker shake) to the ingredients listed. Mix in blender until creamy.
You've got the choices: Fresh or frozen fruit. Regular, skim (nonfat), almond, or rice milk (the more milk you add, the creamier). And almond butter instead of peanut butter—use whichever you like better. Enjoy!*

Stay Off the SCALE!

As many of you already know, I love fitness and the journey toward a healthier happier life.  Anytime someone decides to make a change to maybe drop some weight, become more fit, add muscle or whatever their goals are, I get fired up!  Another win in the battle against obesity!


However when people gauge their success and lose sight of their big picture it usually comes when they step on the scale! This is especially frustration for women caused by a lifetime of calorie counting, dieting, scale watching not to mention the constant bombardment by the media with shows like "The Biggest Loser" and the commercials from those prepackaged food plan companies. It's no wonder we get hung up on weight!


If you recently decided to become more fit and healthy, let me ask a couple questions, you may just fall into this trap;
  1. How do your clothes fit?
  2. How do you FEEL?
  3. Have you checked to see what your body fat percentage is or should be?
If your clothes are feeling loose, you feel great and have more energy and your body fat percentages are going down wouldn't you agree those are all good things?  Then why does the one number from the devil, in this case we'll call it "the scale" matter so much?

Be honest, who really care?

If you drop a couple dress sizes and only drop a few pounds are you THRILLED or frustrated?

Remember when you decided to become more active, healthy, fit, etc., it should have been for the long run, not just 90 days.

Do yourself a favor, stay off the scale and judge your success by the fact that you're working out regularly, you're eating healthy and that you're feeling better!

Ore your other options could be to starve yourself on a crash diet and achieve that "weight loss" goal, but chances are you'll feel like hell, be grumpy, cranky and generally not a whole lot of fun to be around, but hey, you lost some weight!

Stick with your new lifestyle of healthy eating and being more active in the long run you won't give a rip what the "DEVIL" has to say.

This isn’t your kid’s fourth period gym class - Roseville Press-Tribune

This isn’t your kid’s fourth period gym class - Roseville Press-Tribune

Woodcreek opens gym to public for Monday night fit club
By Sara Seyydin Gold Country News Service
Philip Wood/The Press Tribune
Brad Eickman, one of the leaders of Team Beachbody, follows along with a video played during a recent Woodcreek High School’s Fit Club night.
Woodcreek High school’s gym has turned into a secret resource in the quest to get fit for summer.
Students, teachers and parents have been hitting up Woodcreek Fit Club for a couple months now, but more people are catching on. The club is open to the public at 7:30 p.m. each Monday night.
Woodcreek social science teacher, swim and water polo coach Grant Guensler lost 30 pounds after he started the P-90X fitness and nutrition plan. That spurred him to share the program with his athletes, as well as their families.
“My goal was to promote fitness so they’d have the right mentality at home with the kids,” Guensler said.
Each week a new video from the Beachbody line, which includes P-90X and Insanity, is projected on the big screen in Woodcreek’s gymnasium. Beachbody coaches help lead the workouts and even sample Beachbody recovery products afterward.
While the event is free to the public, any donations collected benefit Woodcreek’s athletic fund. The group has grown to over 30 people in just a few months.
Anthony Hyland of Roseville attends the Woodcreek Fit Club. Hyland weighed 308 pounds before starting the P-90X plan. His doctor told him he had to lose weight or risk more health problems. So far he has lost 103 pounds and dramatically improved his health.
“It changed my life. I do a lot more things with my kids,” Hyland said. “A lot of my friends are sitting at home watching professional athletes with ripped bodies instead of having one. If you really want to change your life, get out here.”

Roseville Fit Club is ON FIRE!!


Woodcreek High School Fit Club Group Bringing It!
Monday's at 7:30PM at Woodcreek High School in Roseville, CA is the place to be if you're looking to get connected with a great group of people all working out!  The local group of Team Beachbody Coaches are taking the initiative with the help of Woodcreek High School in tackling the growing trend of obesity in the community.

"Even tho Sacramento is ranked #7 on the list of healthiest cities in America that doesn't mean our community isn't struggling with this social problem". says Grant Guensler the Team Beachbody Coach heading up the effort.

Grant and a team of Beachbody Coaches are committed to Ending The Trend of Obesity by hosting these FREE Group Workouts called Fit Clubs.  The workouts are open to the public and to people of all walks of life and fitness level.  The Fit Club workouts are all based on the workout programs from the fitness and weight loss company Beachbody, the company makes the very popular in home fitness programs such as P90X, Insanity, Turbo Jam, Slim in 6 and many more. You may not be familiar with the company name Beachbody but most people are familiar with the product brands.

There is a small donation accepted, $1-$2 collected as a fund raiser for the Woodcreek High School Swim program.

"This is the best kept secret in the area"! says Chuck MacWilliam 53, one of the Team Beachbody coaches leading the charge.  "If we can help a few people figure out how to start making changes in their lives, this will all be worth it".  By the way, Chuck has the chiseled body most men half his age wish they had. Chuck is also one of those super ripped people you'll see on the P90X infomercial, next time you're sitting around watching TV and the P90X infomercial comes on, look for Chuck M.

Contact Grant Guensler via email for more information or to RSVP for the next Fit Club at gguensler@rjuhsd.us

Sports Business—Beachbody Grows Exponentially Thanks To Network Marketing - CNBC

Beachbody Grows Exponentially Thanks To Network Marketing

Published: Monday, 31 Jan 2011 | 5:07 PM EST
By: Darren Rovell
CNBC Sports Business Reporter


There are not many companies these days that can do $400 million in sales and remain relatively anonymous.

Source: Beachbody

Yet Beachbody, a private company, grossed nearly as much as Groupon did last year and very few people talk about the robust engine that is behind exercise workout programs like P90X, INSANITY and Turbo Jam.

Under the leadership of co-founder Jon Congdon and Carl Daikeler, the company has developed a business model that seems to be Teflon, turning successful converts of its programs into network marketers who ensure that the brands flourish.

Many multi-level marketing companies are based on building a network of sellers and distributors getting rewarded based on the size of their network.

Most often, the people who have gotten in on the ground floor reap the greatest benefits while those late to the game struggle to make money.

What makes Beachbody’s network of distributors, called coaches, so successful is that these people have done the programs and are often in incredible shape. Their testimonial and therefore their business relies on how good they look, not whether they tell friends that a certain superfruit drink helps them have more energy or cures their stomach problems.

It seems like, more often than not, network marketing thrives on results which can't be verified, but if my fat friend shows up with a six-pack, I'll be more likely to believe he was doing an intense workout program.

Since starting the network marketing program three and half years ago, Beachbody now has 51,000 coaches who take a cut of videos and nutritional products they sell. Beachbody coaches sell $1 million worth of nutritional shakes under the brand’s Shakeology name a week. And it’s not cheap at around $120 for a month worth of servings.

“We could have built this company’s sales a lot faster at retail by selling at Walmart and Target,” Daikeler said. “But selling it through direct television (infomercials) and through our network works better for us.”

“We could have built this company’s sales a lot faster at retail by selling at Walmart and Target,” Daikeler said. “But selling it through direct television (infomercials) and through our network works better for us.”

Daikeler says that his coaches serve as walking billboards and salespeople who want to help their family and friends by helping them lose weight through the company’s exercise programs. This is unlike many other multi-level marketing companies that solely rely on building a network to make more money.

And Daikeler doesn’t have to pay for testimonials, a common practice in the infomercial business space he plays in.

“The standard network marketing doesn’t work with our model,” Daikeler said. “This is not a ponzi scheme where if you’re the last one in, you don’t have a chance to do well.”

While the average lifespan of a multi-level marketer is three months, Daikeler says his coaches remain in the system an average of 18 months. It’s why he’s confident that by the end of 2011, there will be 150,000 coaches.

“We don’t promise it will replace your every day job,” Daikeler said. “That has been the case with about 1,000 of our coaches. But what it does for others is it keeps them in shape. In order to continue to have credibility selling, you need to continue to keep up. And so, it allows the people who want to fight obesity, to be motivated by the fact that they have skin in the game.”

By continuing to have more and more videos – P90X led to a harder workout, INSANITY, and that program is leading to The Asylum, which will come out in a few weeks – I don’t see Beachbody slowing down any time soon. And the non-traditional, more patient route of using those converted to the brand by really using it is a smart approach that I think will pay off nicely down the road.
