FitKeri Health Bet: Get Paid To Get Fit

How would you like to get PAID for working out? I’m being serious! What would you do with a little extra cash? Maybe go to Lululemon for a cute headband or go get a pedicure for pounding the pavement? I think earning a little extra cash just for building healthy habits is awesome!  If you do as well, then the FitKeri Health Bet has you covered!

What is Health Bet?

Team Beachbody is literally betting cold hard cash that you will fall in love with getting healthy!

During the Challenge Period, from September 5th – October 2nd, 2016, anyone who meets the requirements below will win an equal share of a $1 million dollar pot funded by Beachbody! As a BONUS – for every Challenge Pack sold from July 27th – August 31st, 2016, Beachbody will add $5 to the pot for up to a $3 million dollar pot!

JOIN THE BEACHBODY HEALTH BET

Beachbody’s Health Bet focuses on building healthy habits.

I totally love that in the Health Bet you aren’t focused on the scale.  It’s not about weight loss or getting visible abs.

You are rewarded for creating healthy habits.

Workout three times per week (yes, only 3!) and drink five Shakeology shakes.  That’s it.  No pressure to workout for hours.  No embarrassing weigh ins.  You workout, drink a shake, and post them in your Beachbody Challenge Tracker app.  Super simple.  No stress.

As a BONUS, I will be giving away prizes to those on my team who go beyond what is required!

How much will you win?

It depends on how large the final pot will be (minimum of  $1 million and maximum of $3 million) and how many people participate.  So it could be $5, $15, $50 or more.   Beachbody will announce the total pot amount in early September.

But the good news is this… whether you get a big check, or just enough to buy your favorite cup of coffee, you will be a winner in that you have created the healthy habits of moving your body and providing your body the nutrient dense nutrition it deserves!  You will be a stronger, more fit, more vibrant person at the end of the month than you were when you started.

Want to join me?

I will run a special Health Bet challenge group for the entire contest period.  We start September 5th and run through October 2nd (my birthday, by the way!).  So you will not only earn the Beachbody Health Bet payout, but you’ll also get the support of me and a group of other ladies on the same journey to become the healthiest version of ourselves as possible.  Oh, and some cash & prizes too! 🙂

Summer Goals

Summer Goal

The summer season is the perfect opportunity to really focus on short term goals.Goals give your life direction and purpose and without them, you’re just drifting through existence. Set a summer goal that includes your family like eating more veggies & walking more or create a budget. Whatever your goal may be, make it realistic and something you can finish by Summer’s end.

Your challenge today is to think about your goal and to actually visualize it. Create a live collage on how you can make your goal a reality.

If losing weight is your goal, maybe your picture would look like this. Summer Goal

So let’s see how you are going be Summer Strong and what it will take for you to reach your goals.

My Summer Goals

My Goals:

  1. Workout 6 days a week even if on vacation
  2. Eat more veggies at every meal
  3. Read more personal development
  4. Have fun with my family every day

Plank Challenge

Plank Challenge

In the quest of reaching our full potential, which is our June focus, of course we have to talk about working on our bodies. Our challenge today is a Plank Challenge!

Plank are an awesome exercise move because it works all the muscles in your core, including the rectus abdominus (the “six-pack muscles” you can see), transverse abdominus, internal and external obliques, hips, and back. Planks help us stand upright & tall with good posture, improve balance & sports improvement and can also help with digestion & metabolism.

Plank Challenge: Hold a plank for one minute! 

Plank challenge

For proper form, your arms should be directly under the shoulders. Your entire body should be in a straight line from toes to head and the back completely flat, neither arched nor rounded. A slight pelvic tilt will help keep your back straight. Engage your core by pulling your belly button towards the spine, and hold.

You can also do these on your elbows or even drop to your knees. Whatever variation you decide to start with, just keep proper form and do your best!

Comment below and let me know how you did! 

Did you hold it longer than one minute?According to Wikipedia, “In April 2016 the world record for a front plank, resting on elbows, was set by former Marine officer and retired Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agent George Hood with a time of five hours, 15 minutes and 15 seconds. This was broken in May 2016 by Chinese policeman Mao Weidong who planked for eight hours, one minute and one second, who formerly held the record and regained it.” I CANNOT EVEN IMAGINE DOING THIS!!!

 

Active Lifestyle

Active Lifestyle

Do you live an active lifestyle? Being active by definition means doing things that require physical movement and energy. Being “active” doesn’t mean just doing your workout and not doing anything else for the rest of the day. That used to be me. I would do my 30-60 minute workout and think that was good enough and I could sit at my desk or the couch the rest of the day. WRONG! You should constantly be moving and getting in as many steps as you can throughout the day to truly call yourself an active person.

Here are some of my favorite ways to be more active. Comment below and share ways you stay active daily and what ways you can add in more active movement into your day!

1) Take a dog for a walk. I look forward to walking Fiona every day. It has become a habit for both of us Be Activethat as soon as I turn off my tv from finishing my workout, she RACES to the front door and whines until I’m ready to leave. It’s great exercise for her, a little extra movement for me, and a great way to meet new people. And noticed I say “a dog”… if you don’t have one, I’m sure your neighbors wouldn’t mind you taking their loved one for a stroll around the block!

 

2) Do you sit at a desk all day? Set a timer to go off every 30 minutes and get up from your desk for a stretch or do a basic exercise move. Here are 9 stretches you can do from your desk, or do 25 jumping jacks…by the end of the day, you would have done 300 of them! You could also take a quick walk to drop off paperwork or mail, or fill up your water bottle. It’s a good chance to refresh your brain and give your eyes a rest when you’ve been staring at a computer screen for too long.

3) Use the stairs. This may seem like a generic tip, but actually USE the stairs! This also involves your whole family! Be a great role model and take the stairs as often as possible. If you have kids, you can make a game out of it. Be More ActiveCount the stairs, see who can get to the top the fastest, guess how many steps there are. Talk to them about how taking the stairs is good for your heart and will make their legs stronger. Create these habits now while they’re young, so they will continue them as they age.

 

4) Wear a pedometer. I learned a couple of weeks ago that just the act of wearing a pedometer triggers your subconscious to get in as much extra walking as possible. Those who wear pedometers walk an average of a mile more each day. You burn about 100 calories per mile (give or take based on age, fitness level and body composition), 100 x 7 days = 700 calories per week; 3500 calorie deficit is one pound of weight lost / 700 calories each week = in 5 weeks you could lose 1 lb, just from wearing a pedometer. I wear a Polar A300 that tracks my steps and also my HR while working out. I love it!

5) Have a dance party! Nothing makes my daughter’s happier than when we have a good old fashioned dance party in the kitchen while I’m trying to cook. We blast their favorite music and dance around acting as silly as possible. If dancing is your thing, their are awesome dance workouts you can try like Hip Hop Abs, CIZE and the upcoming Country Heat.

6) Do yard work. Nothing is more draining and more satisfying than a day spent in the yard. Just weeding or lying down new ground cover will work your hamstrings like nothing else. You can burn 200-400 calories per hour by pulling weeds, planting flowers and mowing the lawn burns 250-350 calories per hour. Remember to stretch afterwards or you might be sore! Again, get your family involved! Pulling tiny weeds from our flower garden is on the chores list for our kids and they actually enjoy doing it.

7) A great time to work on your abs is during commercial breaks. Do as many as you can during the break and do a different type of movement during each break. Your abs should be screaming at you afterwards especially if you watch a lot of tv.

8) Bathroom workout – This may seem silly, but for those of us who drink a ton of water, we go to the bathroom a lot. Every time you “go”, do 25 jumping jacks. You can also do plie squats while brushing your teeth and get in a great stretch while taking a hot shower.

9) Sun Salutations -Every morning when you get out of bed, do 3-5 rounds of sun salutations. This is a perfect morning practice to awaken the body, focus the mind, and connect to a sense of gratitude for the new day.Be more active

10) Workout at home. There are hundreds of workouts you can do at home that can meet your goals and needs. That is how I got started on my fitness journey, so I know doing home workouts actually work. If you need help finding a solution for you, please reach out.
