So, my goal of 5 workouts a week hasn’t gone so well. I used to NEVER miss a workout, but between Summer and the craziness of the holidays, exercise just hasn’t been a top priority. However, climbing up and down the stairs to the nursery should count for something, right? I did get in 3 sessions of strength training last week. Turns out with our new AT&T U-verse package, we do have some On Demand Exercise TV shows. I discovered some great 10 minute cardio/weight options, and I was so sore after doing them. It was great. Today’s goal is to do the Shred DVD as I know I can fit in 20 minutes of Jillian barking orders at me…can’t wait.
Breakfast should keep me fueled throughout the day…
1 cup rolled oats cooked in 2 cups water with 1 TBSP brewers yeast stirred in after cooking and topped with creamy almond butter.
After the holidays, I really plan to amp up my strength training. Honestly, my dream would be to get back to my yoga studio several days a week as nothing has ever done more for my body than yoga, but that’s not happening. The only time I’ll really be able to get to a class is on the weekends when CD is home to stay with Summer. So, Lindsey, my favorite online personal trainer has offered to work with me for 6 weeks. Want to join in the fun? Well then, how about joining Team HEAB?
Here’s the deal:
Staring in January, there will be 3 teams competing against one another for 6 weeks: TEAM HEAB as well as a team led by Charlotte from The Great Fitness Experiment and Lindsey will be leading one as well.
There will be 5 free spots on each team. However, if you don’t win a spot, you can still join the team. The cost is $30, and $10 of that will go into the “pot”. The winning team will be decided by which team has the most points at the end of the challenge. Points are earned by members completing their workouts and the weekly challenges, and at the end of the competition. The prize for the winning team is the entire “pot” being donated to the leader of the winning team’s charity of choice. I’ve chosen Best Friends Animal Society, a grassroots effort to place dogs and cats who were considered “unadoptable” into good homes, and to reduce the number of unwanted pets through effective spay and neuter programs.
What you’ll receive as a team member: 2 full workout programs complete with strength and cardio that can all be done at home and indoors for the winter (one at the beginning and one three weeks into the program), complete access to Lindsey for any questions they have via email, weekly challenges that focus on increasing fitness levels, and 20% off any nutrition program upgrades.
To enter the random drawing for the five free spots, email Lindsey at firstname.lastname@example.org by WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY of this week with the subject of “HEAB Team Giveaway Entry”. For the sake of time, you don’t need to give an explanation in the email. You will be notified of the results within a few days of the deadline. Entering the giveaway does NOT mean you have to join the team. If you do not win a free spot you are under no obligation to join the team, and please click here for more information.
Keep in mind this is about having fun, and hopefully a little lighthearted competition will help keep us all motivated. Happy Holidays and go Team HEAB!
