IMPORTANT TIPS!

Nutrition: Be prepared by getting a solid nutrition plan in place prior to starting. You can do this week to week or even plan out your entire month. It plays a key role in the success of this program. If you want to see INSANE results you need to spend some time getting comfortable with your nutrition. Over time you will learn new eating habits that you can carry with you for the rest of your life. Follow the nutrition guide that was provided with your workout routine! If you have questions just reach out I will answer any questions that you might have.

Take Your Before & After Photo's: Make sure you document where you currently are. You will flip out at the end of 60 days when you the results. If you do not do this you will be very angry at yourself at the end of this program!

I have heard it countless times from people that forgot this step! They beat themselves up because they have nothing to compare their progress to! It only takes a few minutes so just do it! There is nothing more motivating than looking at your before and after pics and seeing the transformation! IT IS PRICELESS!

* Take your Measurements
* Take your before & after pictures
* Take the fit test

Pre Workout: Ensure you have enough fuel to get the intensity during your workouts. A pre-workout meal an hour or so before your workout is very important. But make sure not to eat right before you workout. These routines are intense and you could end up loosing it if you workout to soon after eating.

Shakeology is a good way to fill up the tank before a good workout! Added bonus it taste awesome and its good for you!

Early Morning Workouts: If you workout first thing in the morning you might want to skip eating and take a pre-fuel 15 minutes prior to working out. I know many of us have crazy schedules and do not have an hour+ to get a meal in then wait before we workout.

Post Workout: One of the most important part of any exercise routine is a proper recovery. I cannot stress how important it is to add a recovery drink immediately after your workout you will significantly decrease the amount of soreness you will experience while recovering from your workouts. The P90X Recovery Drink is a very good product and I highly recommend it. Shakeology also a great post-workout meal!

You May Be Sore:
Keep in mind the first week is rough! Expect to be sore and tired. Do not give up your body will adapt very quickly and in no time you will start seeing results. You may want to do a few of the workouts prior to starting just to get your body & mind ready.

Accountability:
Lastly post your Accountability Daily. The message boards are a great way to meet others that are going through what you are going through and it helps stay accountable and motivated! Send me a buddy invite so I can reach out to you if you don't show for a few days!

I look forward to getting to know you and leaving it all on the floor! Walking away from this a leaner and healthier person!

TOGETHER WE CAN DO THIS!

GOOD MORNING TEAM ENGAGE!

Just one more day and we kick off the Thanksgiving Turkey Trim-down Challenge! I am really pumped to get this group started. I have been coaching for a while now and I want to pass along a little information to you to give you the best chances of completing your challenge! Many groups start out very strong and the first few weeks people are heavily engaged but then you will start to see a few drop then a few more. It happens every round so I challenge you to stay committed and don't be that % that quits! Don't be a statistic and commit 100% to this challenge and finish it a new healthier person.

Team Engage Tips: How To Stay Committed
  • Set Realistic Goals & Expectations

    Setting a realistic goal is key to long term success. Many people tend to have generic goals that are not tangible or realistic. So spend about 30 minutes and really find your true goal. Do not make it about weight loss! Make it about fitting into a smaller pair of jeans or dress! Make it about being able to see your toes! Losing so many inches off your waist! By setting a realistic goal you can then have a realistic expectation and will not get frustrated as easy and want to quit!

    --
  • The Scale Is The Enemy

    Measure your weight at the beginning of your routine and at each phase beginning and then put the scale away! The scale is not a true indicator of your progress! You will be transferring fat for muscle during your challenge and sometimes the scale will not show you anything you want to see! Stick to the measurable things that are true indicators. How are you feeling, Is your waist smaller, Did you fit into a smaller pair of jeans! This will keep you in the game and focused on finishing!

    --
  • Bond With A Team

    Staying in communication with your team is KEY to success! The more you bond with your team mates the more accountable you will be to yourself! No one wants to see their team fail and do not want to be the person that drags a team down! By bonding with your team you make friends and these new friends help each other daily to stay on coarse! Most people underestimate the value of peer support groups! In my book it is one of the most important aspects on long term success!

    WE ARE A TEAM! WE WILL FINISH AS A TEAM!

    --
  • Stay Within Your Limits

    When we first start a routine we may be a little excited and tend to over do it! This can lead to big issues for you! If you are new to working out do not expect to be able to keep up with the cast members of your program! They are in shape and you are just now starting so keep that in mind! Do what you can do and do not stress about what you can't. You will soon gain ground on the areas where you struggle!

    --
  • Stop Comparing Yourself To Others

    It is hard for us to not compare ourselves with others at times! Remember that everyone has a different body type and their body may do things that your body can't. This is about YOU AND ONLY YOU! You are not in a competition here so do not worry that someone else can do more push-ups then you! It doesn't matter all you have to do is do your best and forget the rest!

    WE DON'T JUDGE HERE! SO STOP JUDGING YOURSELF!

    --
  • Don't Quit

    To many people quit! For whatever reason they give up and fade away! If you truly want to change your body and mindset you have to work and you have to work hard! This is not easy and you have to commit 100% in order to change your life! If you are tired of being sick & tired then stop making excuses and commit 100% to YOU! Make yourself the most important person for 1 hour a day and don't let anyone or anything take that hour from you! Believe in yourself and great things will happen! Surround yourself with people that believe in themselves and believe in you and greater things will happen! I am here to push you and keep you in as long as I can but at the end of the day it is up to you to make that change!


    LETS DO THIS TEAM!!

Hi Scott. I wanted to post so I have the thread. As I am finishing Insanity just now, I am not sure if I am going to commit just yet to a training program for December. I may just lay low for a couple weeks. We will see if I talk myself into it!

Thanks for pulling together another group.

Hi Scott- how's your wife? Migraines are very hard to break once they're ongoing for quite some time. If you have any questions that are not being addressed in her care, I'd be happy to be a resource. I'm an internist.
I'll keep pushing play as much as I can.

Hey Team

Just a quick check in before I call it a night.

Dali Glad you will pushing play with us!

Sam Really excited that you are about to finish Insanity! You have done a great job brother! No need to commit to a routine as a good break is good for the body. Just keep active and engaged with the team.

Rob Her treatment today didn't go that well but she still has a few more attempts before they move on to a different treatment. She will remain in the hospital for another day or so. I appreciate the concern and your willingess to help! Lots of great people I come contact with on the message boards!

GET READY TEAM! TOMORROW IS GO TIME!

Had to take a rest day today. Oh SO close to finishing, but I had trouble with my knees and my shoulder and decided to push everything back one day. That means Max Plyo tomorrow, max cardio and cardio abs on Sunday, and Fit Test on Mondy. It's a little disappointing, but I knew I needed to listen to my body today.

Not sure where I'll go with workouts after this. I know i wasnt to try Rockin' Body. And I just got Turbo Fire in the mail today. Plus I have Hip Hop Abs and a couple of other non beach body workout dvd's that I want to try. I may take a week or so off and then start trying it all. I'm not going to committ to a full new program until after the new year. I have a trip to Florida the 2nd week in Jan, and I won't be doing anything regimented until after I get back.

I definitely am not taking December off, though. I have that trip in Jan and I want to be able to comfortably go to the beach or the pool.

Gotta run. See ya tomorrow.

Hey Coach Scott,

I am in for Phase III. I am starting out with a 2 lb weight loss which is not much but I'll take it it considering it is around the holidays. I am hoping to not gain anything over the next month (already have 4 parties this month emoticon so I am hoping to hold it together)

I fizzled out with the last two weeks of the turbofire / P90X hybrid as I am getting kinda bored. I've kept up with the workouts though. Today I did an upper body workout and an ab workout from a non beachbody product. I have that 90 day program, plus P90X2 which I haven't tried yet either so I was figuring I would try those 24 workouts out this month to see what they are like and incorporate some Turbofire here and there to get through this month. I ordered Les Mills Combat and will probably do that next so I'll just do a bunch of different workouts this month.

Hi Everyone –

Pilates matwork, weights, abs done last night.

ARX and aerobic decorating done today. emoticon


I’m in for December, too. November didn’t go as well as I had hoped. I didn’t plan on the air-cast and it definitely threw me a bit. I'm one of those people who gets serious endorphin rushes from good cardio and I’ve been missing it the past few weeks. I guess I should be happy that my weight didn’t creep up during November, but I’m not. I need it to be moving downward and December is such a hard month in which to accomplish that. I’m hoping this thread will help get me back on track.

Last night I wired my last garland for the day at 9:21 and was tempted to bypass my exercise room completely. Instead, I forced myself to spend an hour doing core, upper body and glute work. I didn’t do a particular workout, just did a little Tony, a little Shuan-T etc. Today I did my morning ARX, spent another 12 hours decorating, and am resting my arms this evening. I know I will be lifting and doing core work during the football games tomorrow and my arms needed the break. They've been getting overworked since my leg has been out of commission.

Great to see everyone coming over for another month!

I am starting tomorrow so I would love the support and motivation. I have done Turbo Fire and Chalean Extreme but have taken 2 months off. The eating has me the most concerned. I just don't eat enough and definitely not enough protein. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Doing the tough mudder in April here in Las Vegas.

Thanks,

Cheryl

Hi everyone,

Started off the day with some Yoga X2. I like the much shorter version. I did improvise during the Warrier 3/Half moon phase as I've never been able to do those moves. Just don't have the balance. All around pretty good workout though. Tonight we have dinner and a show out so I have to try to keep the nutrition up this evening. Dining out always gives me trouble.

Hey Team

Sorry been MIA today. I have spent most of the day at the hospital with my wife! We are hoping that she will be getting out tomorrow! Keep your fingers crossed!

Shotputmom Way to get your workout in.. I know once it gets later in the evening it is harder to commit to that workout so great job! Keep it up!

Cheryl Welcome to the team! Glad you will be joining us for the challenge! Eating is by far the hardest part of the journey especially when we have to consume a lot of them! I try and make my life as easy as possible and supplement when I can! It is by far the easiest way to get those needed calories without having to eat a ton of food! Do you track your nutrition on a daily basis?

Jane Man I can use a good Yoga session! I think I might throw in some when I get home! I remember when I first started my balance was just non existent and I did more face plants than any other move! LOL! Nice job on the improvements!


DIG DEEP TEAM!
