Ultimate Reset – Week One

I’m a week into the Ultimate Reset and down a little oveyogar 5 pounds and my body feels clean and a lot less puffy!

I decided to do the Ultimate Reset as a countdown to our trip to Punta Cana provided to us by Beachbody.  On top of that, it’s our 10th wedding anniversary in May and I want to feel and look great.  Ultimate Reset seemed like a great way to kick off this amazing year!

What is the Ultimate Reset?

It’s a 21 day nutrition program.  I am pairing it with our 3 Week Yoga Retreat available exclusively on Beachbody on Demand and a few short runs in between, but it’s really all nutrition.

For 21 days you are given every single meal to make, when to make it, how to make it and when to eat.  This is my favorite part!  I have to think 0 about what I am going to eat!  It’s all there for me.

You begin the program eating pretty basic meals like salmon and red potatoes, salad with chicken, a rice and bean taco, scrambled eggs, etc.  But as the week wears on meat is removed and by the middle of the second week grains are removed.

You are also drinking (trying to at least!) a gallon of distilled water each day.  You are given a bottle of finely ground pink Himalayan sea salt to add to ygreensou water for electrolytes.

Before meals you will take a supplement called Optimize to help your body better break down the food and absorb the nutrients.  You also take a shot of Power Greens each day which is dried chlorophyl.  I’m not going to say this tastes awesome, because it doesn’t, but you feel so good after drinking it!  I have a nice little energy boost after drinking this.  Depend
ing on the day I will add it to my Shakeology or leave it plain.

This program is a mental battle.  100% mental.  For me that’s comforting.  I like knowing that my body simply needs to follow my mind.  And I like knowing that I am as mentally strong as I am physically.
So far I’m off to a watergreat start!  We even built a deck this past weekend which meant the beer was flowing and BBQ going.  It’s not easy, but I know it will be worth it!

If you have any questions about this program or would like to do it yourself, please let me know!  You can comment here or email me at kristina.d.lewis@gmail.com.

Cafe Latte Shakeology Balls

Inappropriate?  Yes.  Hilarious?  Yes.
This video is all I could think about when I was making these.  (Insert laughing/crying emoji.  How do you do that?!)

So now we have that out of the way and the elephant is out of the room (you know you were ALL thinking it!), here’s the recipe to Shakeology Balls.

This is a great little snack when you’re having a sweet tooth and perfect for on the go, while also getting a wealth of vitamins and greens in during your day.

Ingredients:
2 scoops or packets of Shakeology.  I like Cafe Latte and Vegan Chocolate the best with this.
1/2 c organic crunchy peanut butter.  (Make sure there’s no added sugar in the ingredients!)
1/2 c unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 c honey
tsp vanilla extract
**I like the coconut and the crunchy peanut butter for texture.  I don’t like the Schweddy  Shakeology balls as much without the texture**

Directions:
Mix all the ingredients together and place in the fridge for about 5 minutes
Remove and begin to roll into balls (about the same size you would a cookie)
I like to bag them into twos and place in the fridge for easy access.
That’s it!!

 

If you already have Shakeology, give it a go and let me know what you think!  If you don’t have Shakeology, but would like to try this recipe, you can find a full month of Shakeology here (your best deal) or email me at kristina@krisdlewis.com to get a few packets!

What the Heck is a Challenge Group?

The first Beachbody program I ever finished was because of a challenge group.

I had tried completing programs on my own and usually did really well the first 7-10 days.  But then I would fall off the wagon and give up until my pants no longer fit and would try it again.  This continued for a loooonnngggg time until I found a challenge group.

I purchased the 21 Day Fix Challenge Pack and my Beachbody coach (even coaches have coaches!) reached out to me about a new challenge group she was starting.  It changed my mindset and helped me to finish the program strong.  I lost over 10 pounds, just as many inches and felt amazing.  Ever since I have never participated in a program without also participating in a challenge group.

21 DF After

Over time I have evolved my challenge groups.  Changing the needs and wants of my challengers (people who purchase programs from me) to better fit the group and offer an even higher success rate.

A challenge group begins on Facebook.  It’s simply the easiest and most utilized technology we currently have to group people together and post documents, meal plans, recipes, pictures, videos, etc.  And it’s PRIVATE.  The only people who see what is posted in the group are the people in the group.  Your sweaty workout selfies are safe.  Your holiday splurge confessions are safe.  Your celebrations are safe.  Your victories are safe.  They all stay within the group.

Within the challenge group you will receive meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, motivation, accountability and inspiration.  Within this, my goal, is for you to gain confidence in yourself.  To celebrate your victories and pick yourself up when you fail.  Every one of us fails.  Failing is not a big deal.  Before I was in a challenge group failing would lead to more failure.  I never knew how to pick myself up and continue on.  One small splurge would turn into a day, then a week, then I just rolled down a slippery slope.  BUT, in a challenge group, those slip-ups become small and insignificant.   You learn how to deal with these and create a lifestyle that will lead to healthy habits.  And in the end, these slip-ups become more and more rare.

healthy habits

My challengers always find the most motivation and success in challenge groups.  When they actively participate by posting their meals, their workouts and their successes, amazing testimonials are established.  But what I have to remind them with, is their posts motivate me as well.  A challenge group is a two way street.  I am in the trenches with you.  I’m eating clean and working out.  I’m drinking my Shakeology every day.  I’m passing on queso.  (Queso is a big deal with me.)  You do not go at it alone.

Every month I start a new challenge group.  All different programs, but all with the same goal in mind.  To help YOU finish strong.

Starting October 5th I will have one challenge group that will be a hybrid of 2 programs, 21 Day Fix Extreme and Body Beast.  This group will help you build muscle and get you shredded.  It will be intense, but the work you put into this program will show itself through your results.  The hybrid schedule was created by top performers in our company and is perfect for adding strong, lean muscle and curves.  Women will tone and men will bulk.

Also on October 5th I will start a PiYO challenge group.  This program is low-impact, no jumping or hopping, but will create lean muscle.  No weights are involved.  Just you, using your body.  This is a great program for new moms, runners and those that need flexibility.

If you are ready to give me 30 days, I am ready to commit to helping you achieve amazing results.

Shoot me an email at kristina.d.lewis@gmail.com with any questions and to be added to these groups!

Beachbody On Demand is perfect for people who travel a lot. It’s perfect for those that never finish a program and bounce around from program to program. I have customers that switch from 21 Day Fix, Insanity, to P90 regularly. NOT ME!  I’m a little OCD and must start and finish a workout program. There is something about marking off each workout on the calendar that gives me a feeling of accomplishment. I do however get annoyed with keeping up with the DVDs.  Beachbody on demand is a great opportunity to try out all different types of workouts before committing to just one.

How do you get your hands on this?  
Beachbody On Demand is now available to every Team Beachbody Customer that has the club membership.  The club membership is our all access pass to amazing tools to help you on your journey.  The website gives you meal planners, recipes, fitness tips and tools to help you start and complete an entire program. You get the club membership by contacting your current Beachbody coach and asking how you can upgrade to the club or you can contact me if you do not have a coach and I can walk you through the steps to get the club membership.

How much does it cost? 
The club membership is $2.99 a week but it is billed quarterly at $38.87.  You can cancel or change it at any time.  You are not locked into the club for a specific period of time.  No contract! There is no additional cost to stream any of the workouts. They are all yours!  When you get the club membership you instantly have access to the customized meal planning tool and a grocery list. You can modify the meal plan to your lifestyle.  The BEST part…..you get me as your COACH to help keep you accountable. I’ll get you added to my accountability group on Facebook so you can connect with others on their journey, help you set goals and provide daily motivation. Another perk is that you get 10% off all merchandise with your club membership!
