FITober – Taking Applications Now

It’s almost October which means more than just pumpkins, Halloween costumes, and candy. It means that it is the start of my annual FITober Challenge!

Let’s face it, October can be hard on you. Starbucks is selling their Pumpkin Spice Latte, there is Halloween candy on every aisle of the grocery store and there are tons of festivals and parties to attend. That’s why starting a fitness plan in October makes the perfect sense! The group will keep you super motivated and accountable to reach YOUR goals. We are going to Slim down in time for Halloween and keep it up through Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Yep, no holiday weight gain for us! This simplified and fun plan that includes exclusive access to a private online support group & is personalized to your goals.

But trying to lose weight without a plan is just a frustrating time suck. This time of year should be fun, not depressing…

I was completely frustrated for 9 months after my 2nd daughter was born.  Then I found this system and it completely changed the course of my life.

It’s fast, easy, simplified, and fun. I got into the best shape of my life in the comfort of my own home. My schedule, my kids, my food, my living room, and some times my pajamas (don’t judge).

That’s real results, unbeatable value, complete convenience.

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.
