My Coach Summit Vacation….
Last round of Max:30 I felt like I didn’t do the program justice because it was the holiday season and well, I like cookies. This time I of course take a vacation my final week. Good thinking right? Best part about this vacation is it’s with a bunch of other Coaches! So I had some accountability to get my workouts in and stay on track. I wasn’t perfect but I was mostly good.
This is how we do it!
Max Out Sweat err… Nevermind
Today was supposed to be Max Out Sweat, while I did sweat, I didn’t do Max:30 today. Instead I settled with working out with all my house mates. And boy did I sweat! We tried a new workout that was cardio and yoga. I think Jericho McMatthews is going to be one of my favorite new trainers. It felt so good to stretch after a spending the day at the airport yesterday. You ever sit for so long that your body is just stiff? I always tell myself that I don’t like yoga and then I do it and I feel so much better.
Max Out Strength
Today was epic! I worked out yesterday but it wasn’t Max:30. So that means I’m definitely not going to skip it today, even if I’m going to do the live workout with Tony Horton tonight. The whole crew got involved with the workout again today. I felt a little bad because a few of my house mates that were doing Max:30 were only on month one but they all did awesome though. Even the people who had never done Max:30, it really is for everyone. I’m so thankful for the modifier this month. Something about maxing out with a bunch of my favorite people made today’s workout so much more motivating. Hearing everyone laughing and struggling through it too made me feel like no matter how tough, it was possible to keep going. Today I maxed out at 13:10, good time but my knees and feet are bothering me a bit today. I only 38 seconds longer last week.
22 Minute Hard Corps
So thankful for Energize today. Tony is awesome at getting me sweaty in no time flat. Today was the first time I actually did his cold start before 22MHC. So we ended up getting our sweat on for almost 45 minutes. My fave fave fave, program. Is it Monday yet? I’m so ready to get started on this program! Special thank you to Judy Fish getting some pictures of us 🙂 I think today has been my favorite day of all my vacation so far.
Friday Fight Round 2
Two weeks ago I maxed out at 9+ minutes, I’m not sure if I was having a good day or what. Last week I maxed out at 6:10 and I’m proud to say I made it past that today, barely… (#IMaxedOut @ 6:29) This trip has been so exhausting that I’m not sure if I’m just tired from all the happenings and the not so perfect eating schedule but I can definitely say I am glad I don’t have to do this workout again. Well, not for now at least. Only having a 30 minute workout was perfect for this morning because I will be in Coach training all day. Getting to listen to people teaching me more ways to grow myself mentally instead of just physically is perfect. Mindset and determination will get you places as long as you put in the work!
B: Oatmeal with chia seeds, steamed broccoli and watermelon.
Post: Vegan Chocolate Shake
Snack: Vegan Chocolate Shakeology with 1/2 banana
L: Salad with 1/2 avocado, veggie burger patty, more watermelon 🙂
D: Salad with black beans, I even splurged and had some pineapple coconut juice… crazy right… 😉
Last week I vowed to myself that if the weather was nice on Saturday’s I would make a point to get outside. I may be out of town but missing the scheduled seminar was WORTH IT! I saw deer and squirrels, frogs and a lizard too. Just getting out there in the quiet brought me back to me. It’s amazing how surrounding yourself with different components and different company can make you question who you are again, even when you think that you are confident with that. I visited a couple different places after church and while the nature was beautiful, I sure do miss home. The humidity and the buzzing bugs are a little different than the birds at home.
I loved this little bridge in the middle of the lake. My walk was a 2 mile loop but being in the center was my favorite part. You could see views from there that I would have missed had I not crossed it. I had originally intended to make the 4 mile loop but I’m glad I didn’t. I’m not sure I would have wanted to venture further because my feet were already tired and wanting to sit in my air conditioned car while I ate my lunch.
Today I had planned to be out and about all day so I planned all of my meals. I bought these awesome tupperware that hold my salad, dressing and a couple snacks, along with an ice pack to keep it all cold. So worth the $6 I spent on them.
B: Oatmeal with chia seeds, fresh pineapple and thin sliced toast with peanut butter.
L: Salad with broccoli, pineapple, green onions and pepitas.
S: Chocolate Shakeology with 1/2 banana
D: Salad again with a spicy black bean burger patty, broccoli, pineapple and avocado.
I had a lot of fruit today but we found pineapple for 99 cents a piece so we bought quite a few of them. I’m not drinking and I’m keeping the indulgences very minimal for this vacation so I figured fruit was a perfectly acceptable treat. Plus the heat just makes you want cold sweet fruit anyway!
Cardio Challenge- AKA LAST DAY OF MAX:30
This girl is on FIRE!!!! I made the goal today of 12 minutes and made it to 15:55 minutes. Every minute after 12 I couldn’t help but holler 13 minutes, 14 minutes, 15 minutes, I felt proud! It super helps to have your mind in the right place. Just knowing that today was my last day made me want to kill it. My house mates didn’t get motivated to workout today but every time they walked by they cheered me on. I’m telling you, find your people, find the ones who are going to support you! If I remember correctly, last round of Max:30 I believe I cried after my workout, it was so emotional to finally complete it something I had started. Now I can say I’ve done it twice and I’ve completed multiple programs since the initial fire of finishing this. Getting started now is easier than waiting for tomorrow. Transformation pics to come!
