Alright, so it’s not quite winter YET but the holiday season is upon us! With Halloween LITERALLY right around the corner, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s come up pretty quickly!

And the thing is, you don’t get that summer beach body that you want by waiting on your booty all winter and hope that you will get there in a couple months. BUT you can find progress in just a couple months!

So, here’s what we’re going to do. For the month of November, we are looking for anyone and everyone that is interested in getting their summer body they have always dreamed of OR to get that summer body BACK! And how are we doing that? Clean eating, exercise, and accountability. Join us in one of our accountability groups!

What you will receive in the accountability group is:
1. Support – You will have unlimited access to one of Hype’d UP Fitness’ coaches who will be there to push you to do your best.
2. Encouragement – Not just from your coach but from your fellow challengers who are also going through the same challenges as yourself.
3. Accountability – You won’t miss a workout or skip a meal when you’ve got the tools necessary for success.
4. Knowledge – There will be daily posts with recipes, reasons why you’re doing what you’re doing, explanations of movements during exercise, and more.
5. Fun – Health and Fitness isn’t just about keeping yourself healthy and strong, but it’s also about fun and falling in love with the process. It’s a journey to be proud of. Plus, there are mini challenges that can happen with chances to win prizes! Who doesn’t love goodies?! tongue emoticon

Alright, so this challenge is for the last 15 days in 2014. I talked about it in a previous post…here.

On Monday, I did pretty good. Did well with my food for the day and I even worked out after class. Remember that Holiday Sale that happened with Beachbody? I talked about the Les Mills Pump workout that I ordered and I can finally do it. I was so excited. The workout for the night was Pump and Burn. And boy did it burn! I haven’t really lifted too much lately and I actually made it through the entire 30 minutes (minus abs). I don’t do abs because well, my muscles are kind of in different places now that the baby has taken ove rmy abdomen area. Anyway, in just 30 minutes or less, I worked on deadlifts, squats, shoulders, power cleans, presses, and chest. It was amazing. I definitely felt it the next day! Funny thing is…I only did about 15 lbs!! When I was working every single day before the pregnancy…I was definitely lifting a lot more weight! Oh well. I will get back eventually.

Tuesday…I was sick. I felt sick all day. I don’t know what happened. So, I didn’t bother working out at all. I ate well throughout most of the day, but once I got home, I didn’t. I was at least able to do the “homework.” We had to post our alter ego. I don’t really have one. So, I did what I do best. Turned to the hubby for some ideas. He called me Superwoman. And since I am pregnant, it reminded me of this photo.

Okay, it’s Wonderwoman. But it still works!

Wednesday (yesterday), I was feeling so-so throughout the day. I was looking things up and realized that you can become anemic during pregnancy. I might have been feeling so tired and sick because I didn’t have enough Iron in my diet. Imagine that! It’s no wonder I was feeling a bit better after I ate my Lentil Lime Salad…lentils are full of iron!

Because I was feeling better with more iron in my system and a lot of water, I decided I would do a short workout. I did the Les Mills Combat 30 Live. It’s my favorite. Punching, kicking, sweating…I felt good when I was done. The “homework” was posting a “sweaty selfie.” No problem, boss. Sweaty selfie it is!

Today, I am sitting at work with not much to do so I have been blogging. Go figure. Blogging and hitting up Twitter to see who has posted interesting things recently! Whatever, I have a good time doing it, so why not? BUT for our “homework” assignment for the challenge group was to post a photo of you and your Shakeology shake in a Christmas-like manner. Well, I took my photo before I got to work and didn’t know it had to be Christmas-y! I thought…and thought…and thought….AND CAME UP WITH AN IDEA! Clicked on that little yellow icon on my iPhone6…ya know. The one with the little ghost on it? Yes, that one. Loaded my photo and then drew a little Santa drawing on my photo. Yes. Snapchat, saved the day! I was able to get an “A” on the homework for the day! Still eating pretty clean today as well and I will be doing another Pump workout this evening. I can’t wait. 🙂
