New Challenge

I’ve been hearing and reading and hearing and reading about all of these different 90 Day Challenges out there.  In the end, it came down to just two: BeachBody and Body By Vi.  I must admit, I was a pretty hard sell, constantly asking questions, doing research, reading reviews, and watching informational videos.  I recruited 4 of my friends who were interested in losing roughly 10-15 pounds (I’m looking for more of a body transformation) and we signed up together.  After all, research shows that you are more inclined to adhere to an exercise and diet regime and see results when you have friends holding you accountable.

We opted to try the Body By Visalus 90 Day Challenge.  Why?  Well – first it was more affordable in my budget and theirs too.  (I know money shouldn’t be a factor in your physical health and wellness, but let’s face it now a day’s every dollar counts!).  Secondly, we all belong to the same gym so we don’t really have a need for a home workout DVD system like P90X or Insanity.  If you live in a small house like I do, there really isn’t any room to do it, plus I find the thought of sweating on my living room carpet really unsanitary.  Finally, the shake itself (which we were able to try before purchasing) was pretty tasty all by itself.  It has a sweet cream flavor which makes it super simple to change the flavor and add variety if you want.

I’m not sure what I’m expecting out of my 90 Day Challenge but I’m super excited to support my friends along the way, take photos and measurements, and really see what kind of results we get.  You always here about someone who knows someone who has a friend that did a challenge and had great results.  Well, it is time for me to see it first hand.

Wish us luck!

About Food4Thought

I am no fitness expert. I am simply someone who has found joy in fitness and nutrition. I am a certified group fitness instructor. I’ve been teaching at the local health club for about 3 years now. While Zumba was my first love, I have since added Total Conditioning, Bodyworks plus Abs, and Core to my repertoire of classes. I work with a personal trainer to help me reach my fitness goals that I cannot obtain through group fitness alone. This year I ran my first 5K and plan to run my first 10K in March. To further my knowledge in the fitness realm, I have begun reading Strong Women Stay Slim, New Rules for Lifting Abs, and The Body Sculpting Bible for Women. On my list to read next is Wheat Belly. I am always looking for new ways to further my education and knowledge to better serve the members that take my group fitness classes. Lately, I have started tinkering with recipes, buying healthy cookbooks, and finding easy, tasty, and healthy foods to make. Like I mentioned earlier, I am by no means an expert, but the things I share with you have helped me tremendously with my fitness journey. It is my hope that with these easy tips and recipes, that you too can make these tiny steps and see big positive changes in your life.
