How Are You Going to Spend the Next 30 Days?
attitude optimism attitude booster think positively
12/20/12 9:39 AM
Bombard your brain with optimism

"Exercise is a huge attitude booster. People who exercise are more likely to break out of their comfort zones and push their capabilities.

You are in charge of your thoughts, so choose your thoughts wisely. Think positively. Take the top  five things you want to dwell on and tape them to your steering wheel, desk
and mirror. Make yourself dwell habitually on your positive attitude and on the attitude you have when you get the results you like.

You’ll also need to protect yourself from the brain snatchers. It’s a fact that success breeds jealousy, envy and enemies. Giving one minute of anger to other people’s insecurities is a minute wasted. If you remain optimistic, negative people will move on to other negative people, because those are the kind of people they are more comfortable with. Always analyze your actions, the people you are with, and how they add or subtract from your superstar attitude." Mark Tewart

Healthy lunch
10/5/11 12:39 PM as a reply to howtobefit.
For lunch I had leftover popcorn shrimp, sweet potato fries and apple juice. Our girls, Grace (6) and Carly (4), who have never had junk food, fast food or a soda, had open faced peanut butter and jelly sandwiches on whole wheat rolls, yogurt and applesauce. Time for homeschool to resume!

What's for dinner?
10/6/11 5:08 AM as a reply to howtobefit.
Wednesdays are rushed because we go to church in the evening, so I didn't have a chance to post. I made a recipe that I have made for years called Chicken Divan. It is chicken with sauteed broccoli, garlic and apple slices over a bed of egg noodles and a sauce over the top. Healthy, nutritious and low fat as well as simple and quick to make.

World's fastest runner?
heart rate monitor gps
10/6/11 8:28 AM as a reply to howtobefit.
I did my run this morning and it was great to see all of my Buddies in WOWY. I run in the dark every morning, but I have a heart rate monitor that measures speed and distance and beeps every half mile when I run. I also always carry a fanny pack with my phone (that's a just in case with kids thing) and my keys. On the phone, I use the Runtastic app which uses GPS to track and record your run. It doesn't always lock onto a signal, though, so I always depend on my watch for distance.

This morning the Runtastic app was green (good to go, I guess) and I expected it to be accurate. Well, it would be nice but it said that I ran 30:17 and a distance of 63.37 miles. Am I the world's fastest runner? Maybe just in my wildest dreams because it is time to edit my run for today and put in the right time...

RE: Team Howtobefit Coaches Are Accountable to Their Members!
10/6/11 11:04 AM as a reply to howtobefit.
Today I did a Zumba workout for 50 minutes. Boy am I uncoordinated. My son did Chalean Extreme in the next room - he took all of my hand weights - makes it hard for me to do strength on the same day.

I had a Shakeology Shake for breakfast as did my son and my daughter. One bag of Shakeology used to last me more than 30 days. Now I run out each month but it's worth it to see the kids starting off the day with a healthy meal.

I had a banana for morning snack and a healthy sandwich for lunch. I plan to do a second workout when I get home tonight with my daughter. Probably Yoga Booty Ballet which is pretty fun.

I just ordered the rest of the YBB series and am waiting for it to arrive.

Today my son and I started off with Shakeology. Tonight my new YBB videos should be on my porch waiting for me.

So my daughter and I will probably do one of those workouts and my son is going to do Chalean Extreme Burn Circut 3 in the other room.

So, lot's going on.

Team Beachbody quickly becomes a family affair
10/7/11 1:39 PM as a reply to HealthEcoach.
That's a great post, Julie Ann. It is great seeing the impact that Team Beachbody and Beachbody products have on all members of the family. I can still remember when the girls were little knowing "beeechbody" and P90X and saying "Mommy's working out" or "Daddy's working out". Now they know and drink Shakeology and join in our workouts. In fact my office is a 400 square foot sunroom that doubles as a workout room and playroom. When the girls aren't in class they are with me while "I do Beachbody" as they say.

What do you do when your schedule gets out of whack?
10/7/11 1:54 PM as a reply to howtobefit.
My wife Christy left for California this morning to go to a wedding and our family schedule has really been thrown for a loop. We just had leftovers last night to finish some things up and then watched a movie with the girls so that they could get the most Mommy time before she left. Now with getting ready, going to the airport, doing some things with the girls on the way home to distract the girls from missing Mommy, it is 2:45 and I am just now posting.

Julie Ann knows what a challenge balancing family, working out and our businesses can be and now Mom is gone, so it is going to be even more challenging for me.

Christy and I both ran this morning before she left, so we got our workouts in. Health in a Beachbody household is a #1 priority!

Its All Good
10/7/11 5:06 PM as a reply to HealthEcoach.
Didn't go exactly as planned - but still all good. My YBB videos arrived today so I got to do the Go-Go workout.

Yoga Booty Ballet (YBemoticon is not one of the more popular TBB workouts but I wanted something fun to do. I had won a month membership to a local Crossfit gym. I tried it out but had no interest in continuing beyond my free month.

I could never see myself being proud of doing a perfect Olympic Lift. The whole concept of using a long weight bar and big weights just doesn't appeal to me.

However, being able to balance perfectly while shifting from one challenging position to another is something I could aspire to. So that is why I chose YBB.

Also I want to have fun with my workouts. I have this feeling that in order for a workout to be effective it has to be really hard. But, you know what, I don't enjoy hard workouts long-term.

So I am giving YBB a real try. Wouldn't it be great to do a fun workout and still stay in great shape. Have you seen Gillain and Teigh? They have fabulous bodies.

So, that's my take on YBB.

After I did my workout, my daughter came in so I did a 40 minute Zumba workout with her. My son and my husband went off and played soccer.

So, the night was exactly at planned but it was still all good. Lots of family exercise.

Don't Look Back - Just Keep Looking Forward
10/14/11 10:42 AM as a reply to HealthEcoach.
If you are journaling to have more success with your nutrition and fitness programs and motivating yourself to make positive changes and you miss a day or two, don't look back. I missed two days, but I will pick up again today and then look forward to tomorrow.

Friday was basically a lost day for me because my wife, [Edited by John], left to go to a wedding and our oldest daughter, Grace, got sick, so I hands full.

Saturdays are normally my day off, keeping the Sabbath and spending it with family. Usually that means lots of activities with the girls and then going to Calvary of Albuquerque in the evening. But given that Grace was sick, all we ended up doing was going to church.

So today is another day and nothing was lost by not posting. I worked out, ate well and so did my family. We stayed faithful to our core values of faith, family and fitness.

A post a day while my wife's away?
10/14/11 5:55 AM as a reply to howtobefit.
Well I should have known that wasn't going to happen. [Edited by John] left, Grace was sick and spent most of the weekend feeling pretty awful. That meant that Dad had to be mom, dad, nurse and playmate and well as chief cook and bottle washer. I got my workouts in and did Beachbody (it is hard to call it work), but Mom coming back yesterday was a blur.

To make up for it, today I did a good blog post on "Muscle Memory" and a good message board post on my other thread about "Prayer Runs"

What the girls ate in the last four days was, of course, healthy and what did ate was, too. He just didn't eat much because he missed our family being all together...

RE: Team Howtobefit Coaches Are Accountable to Their Members!
10/11/11 4:48 PM as a reply to howtobefit.
Happy Tuesday. Well over the weekend I ran totally out of Shakeology so I am making do with other protein powders until the next bag arrives.

Did YBB this morning and my son did Chalean Burn Circuit 2.

Had to order new resistance bands today since my son totally took over my weights. Gotta luv the kids.

Blew up a second balance ball so my daughter could do ball workouts with me and blew up a second YBB ab ball so she could do those workouts too.

So overall everyone is getting into fall fitness - time to keep active even though we are spending more time indoors.

Still need to do some more activity tonight before I call it a night.

On the business side - I connected with 2 new people today. I wrote a Topic Tuesday post about getting your customers and clients past the feeling of overwhelm and into action.

Prepping for a coaching call tonight on internet traffic strategies. Listened to the TBB coach call replay today too.

Busy Tuesday so far and 2 more hours to go. See y'all tomorrow.

I have gotten so close and even filled the scoop less full, but I have never run out.

If I feel like I need extra protein, I do have a container of whey protein powder that I add to my Shakeology, but never use it on its own. When I did once, though, it was like that old commercial slogan, "Where's the beef" but instead it was, "Where are the rest of the nutritious ingredients?"

Breakfast of champions or just breaking the fast
shakeology breakfast break fast breakfast of champions breaking fast
10/12/11 10:14 AM as a reply to howtobefit.
I actually had breakfast hours ago, right after I did my workout. But mid morning, which comes early for me because I get up so early, means that I need an energy booster. Coffee is the most widely consumed drink in the world and I just reached for one, but then something said, "If you want an energy boost, why not make a Shakeology?" It takes so little time to make - literally a few quick shakes - and you will have a drink that not only is a great source of natural energy, but also the most nutrient dense drink ever created.

Breakfast is an absolute must because you are "breaking" an almost 12 hour fast in some cases, so why not make it a "breakfast of champions" and not just a cup of coffee. When the caffeine rush wears off, what will nourish your body until it has its first real meal?

My routine 7 days a week is, wake up, work, work out, breakfast and then a mid morning Shakeology. What keeps me going is exercise, eating nutritiously and relying on Shakeology to not only give me energy but to fill in any gaps that I might have in my diet and enhance everything that I am currently eating.

I actually wasn't going to share this with anyone, but I know how many people are struggling these days so I thought that it would be good to share. I wrote a blog post yesterday entitled, "The Tortoise and Rich" about my slowest run ever, not knowing that would pale in comparison to what was to come.

I had a comment on the post from fellow [Edited by John]Team Beachbody Coach Sue Hathaway[/url] who said, "I'm ever so grateful that you put yourself, your real self out here for all of us, especially those of us who are in the midst of struggling health wise. While I'm sure I'll recover eventually it seems one thing after another pops up and can all be traced back to surgery(s). At times it's easier to give into it than to push through. It's the give in days that I turn to your post, comments, and blogs to find my inspiration and my reason to push onward..thank you!!"

Here is my response, "Sue, in the afternoon yesterday, after I had written that post, I was giving the girls homeschool classes. I unexpectedly blacked out and hit my head on the base of a table. As with any head wound, blood gushed everywhere and the Team World Vision shirt that I was wearing was soaked with blood. I was home alone with the girls, had to get ice for my head and assure the girls that I was okay, even when I wasn't. When Christy got home, I was able to get my shirt off, take a shower and try to act as if nothing happened. I made dinner and we went to church with me wearing a running hat with two of Christy's pads stuck inside because the blood was still oozing. Life goes on even when we have a setback, so we just have to pick ourselves up either physically or emotionally or both and get back in the game."

Dinner last night was thanks to Tony and Missy
tony horton burritos karmachow missy costello vegan burritos
10/14/11 3:48 PM as a reply to howtobefit.
My wife goes back and forth between being vegan and not being vegan and last night, we were vegan for dinner. I had to think quickly what to make until she suggested, "What about Tony's burritos?" Well, that's like eating what Superman eats, so I was all for it. Here is Tony's Famous Vegan Burritos from Karmachow.com, Missy Costello's (Tony's personal chef) website:

"Most of you know that I cook for that crazy guy, Tony Horton, creator of the phenomenal workout system P90X and some of you may be wondering, who the heck is this Tony Horton guy? Well, if you don't know, you are missing out. And if you want to find out, go here: Tony Horton's World and check him out!

Yes, that's right, the guy is 52 and in better shape than anyone I know. The reason: consistent exercise 6 days a week and a CONSISTENT CLEAN DIET, which is mostly plant-based! Horton calls himself a "Flexitarian", which means that he eats mostly a plant-based diet 90% of the time but will have the occasional fish, eggs or free-range, organic chicken if he is out and about and there are no other options. Otherwise, he keeps it clean; very little sugar (only in the form of agave, honey or brown rice syrup), no gluten, no dairy, very minimal processed foods and tons of WHOLE, FRESH food! This is how you get and STAY healthy! You can exercise your butt off, but if you aren't putting the proper nutrients into your body, your efforts are worthless. Did you know eating certain foods can help to ward off cancer and disease?? Yes, you heard me. So why not eat healthy? Why take a risk just to have some "fun". And why is it that we equate bad food to having fun? I have plenty of fun eating my Organic Nectars Raw & Vegan Gelato, or even my Kale with Tahini over Quinoa..delicious!

Anyway, back to why I am here...the famous Vegan Burritos I created for Tony, that are his staple food and loaded with nutrients & flavor. And, guess what? They are simple to make too!"

So here we go:

2 TBL. Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 Red Bell Pepper, deseeded & sliced into thin strips
1 Yellow bell pepper, deseeded & sliced into thin strips
1 Red onion, thinly sliced into 1/2 moons
1 zucchini, thinly sliced
1 -15oz can organic black beans, or 1-1/2 cups cooked
1-15oz can fire roasted diced tomatoes
2 tsp ground cumin
1 TBL chili powder blend
1/2 tsp sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 c. quinoa or brown rice, cooked
1 pkg. gluten free brown rice tortillas (Food for Life Brand), or sprouted grain tortillas (Ezekial Brand)

Extras (optional) Avocado, Tempeh Bacon, Daiya Cheese or Wayfare foods We Can't Say it's Cheese Mexican Cheese spread (YUMMY)
To Prepare:

Rinse quinoa or brown rice, and prepare according to package directions.

While quinoa/rice is cooking, heat 1 TBL of the Olive oil in a large skillet. Add peppers & onions and sauté until soft – about 3-5 minutes. Add zucchini, cumin, chili powder and sea salt and continue cooking for 2 more minutes, stirring to incorporate all the spices with the peppers & onions. Add tomatoes and stir to mix. Lower heat and cover, cooking for about 5 minutes until peppers are really soft. Remove from heat. Add beans to pan and stir to incorporate.
To Assemble:

Heat tortilla shell over low open flame on stove to soften. Place the tortilla on a flat surface. Spread a very small amount of Daiya cheese (if using) over entire tortilla. Add 1 scoop of pepper, onion & bean mixture to bottom 1/3 of tortilla. Top with 1 scoop of quinoa or rice. Add avocado (optional) or tempeh bacon and roll it up! (If you are using the Gluten-Free tortillas, it's best to roll each burrito made to order.)
