Les Mills Combat Supreme Warrior Workout Day 57 - Live Ultimate Warrior's Workout and Les Mills No Longer Part of Beachbody

Good morning! Did Ultimate Warrior's workout this morning, and got a great workout from it as usual.  I also found out something that has me a little upset - Les Mills is no longer part of Beachbody - apparently they were bought out by Reebok some time ago, so the Les Mills dvds will  no longer be available on the Beachbody website. That means I'll have to find another kickboxing-type of workout to do. I still plan to go forward with doing the P90x/Les Mills Combat hybrid workout that I set up for myself to start the day after Kevin and I get back from our trip up to Michigan (next Tuesday, 9/8/15 - the day after his birthday), but after that I may check out Turbofire or one of the other kickboxing-inspired workouts Beachbody has (those that are reading this that are doing Beachbody workouts - are there any others?)

This week is going to be a short but busy week for me - I have to work this afternoon from 2-7, then all day Tuesday through Friday, then Friday night as soon as I finish work Kevin and I are heading out of town, going up to Michigan for the weekend - we'll be driving back Monday (Labor Day, also his birthday) which we both have off, then we'll both be heading back to work on Tuesday. Somewhere in there I also plan to do some work on my Beachbody business. Hope everyone has a great day!

Les Mills Combat Surpreme Warrior Workout Day 56 - Rest Day and my Plans for the Day

Good morning! Today was a Les Mills Combat rest day so I slept in a bit this morning - hard to believe I only have 4 days left in this workout! Going out of town on Friday so I will be "off my game" for a few days, but plan to get back to it on Tuesday, starting a P90x/Les Mills Combat hybrid - P90x strength workouts with Les Mills Combat cardio workouts. Got up at 6;00 am and did a few things, then at 8:00 took a shower, got dressed, ate breakfast and got ready for the day. Right now Kevin is out doing some stuff - he's leaving for Augusta around noon, then I plan to spend the rest of the day working on some stuff - want to get a trial of Skype Unlimited World going so I can use it to call into the conference call tomorrow. I actually want to try using it for business-related calls for a month so my cell phone isn't ringing off the hook. I also want to make up a social media posting schedule for information on different products.

That's all I can think of for now, hope everyone has a great Sunday!

Les Mills Combat Supreme Warrior Workout Day 55 - Shock Plyo HIIT and My Plans for the Day

Good morning! This morning I did Shock Plyo HIIT - it was a pretty good workout, I'm always surprised at how much I improve on those workouts every time. I can do more burpees and more of the plyometric lunges and hops now than I could at the beginning of the workout. Today I plan to spend the day with Kevin, since he's got to leave to go back to Augusta tomorrow.  We just got back from eating breakfast, and we're getting ready to go out to Thomasville, NC to visit friends in a bit. Hope everyone has a great Saturday! Tomorrow I will get back to working on ways to drum up some business.

Les Mills Combat Supreme Warrior's Workout Day 54 and More Ideas for my Coaching Business

Good morning everyone! Having a good morning so far, got up and did Les Mills Combat Ultimate Warrior's workout, which I love because it's got so many different punches and kicks, and it also incorporates all the different types of martial arts. Also weighed in at 114.5 this morning - not that I was trying to lose weight, but I'm always happy when I don't gain weight.

I also came up with more ideas for my coaching business - I think I'm going to start up a trial of Skype Unlimited World so I can call mobile phones and landlines from my computer - I think that might work well for making long distance calls, for example for the Weekly Wake-Up call and also for when I have to call potential customers. I tried getting on the Wake-Up call on my cell phone last week, and it didn't work because my cell phone wouldn't stay connected. If I decide to continue with it, it's only 2.99 a month, which is affordable for me. Plus I can call using Skype from my cell phone or my Kindle as well.

I'm looking forward to today, not only because it's Friday but because Kevin's on his way home from Augusta, GA where he's been working this week, and also because today is our anniversary - we've been married 12 years today.

I also got my Coach welcome kit yesterday, I was surprised to see that this is all it is:

It's a book that has pages in it that give you some information about being a coach and how to earn money, and also has places for you to put in before and after photos. 

Anyway, that's it for this post, this weekend I have some stuff to work on, and I also hope to work more on my coaching business. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Les Mills Combat Supreme Warrior Workout Day 53 - Power HIIT and Update on my Coaching Business

Good morning! This morning has been good so far, I got up and worked on some stuff, then at 7:00 I did the Les Mills Combat Power HIIT workout. I love that workout because it's short, and it's less plyometric than Shock Plyo HIIT - there's more of a focus on weight training, though there is also a little bit of plyo in there with the burpees and the switch lunges.

Just like I said I was going to do yesterday, I contacted my neurologist to find out if he knew of any negative interactions between my meds and the herbs or other ingredients in Shakeology. They suggested I contact my pharmacist, so after work I called Rite Aid and spoke to the pharmacist that was working - I gave him the names of some of the herbs, and he said he didn't see any negative interactions (or any interactions at all) between the herbs in Shakeology and my medications. So we'll see. I'm still a bit skeptical. Meanwhile, my Coach starter kit, or whatever it's called, is supposed to arrive today. I'm hoping the USPS delivers it to my door like I specified, and doesn't leave it in my mailbox, because the office is a bit of a walk from my apartment and by the time I get done working it will be dark.

Anyway, that's it for now, I need to get ready to go to work. Everyone have a great day!

Les Mills Combat Supreme Warrior Workout Day 52 - Ultimate Warrior's Workout and Having Second Thoughts about Being a Coach

Good morning - this morning's workout was the Ultimate Warrior's Workout - that's one of my favorite workouts because it's actually performed live, and it's a real good workout - it incorporates all the different types of punches and kicks and really gets my heart going.

I'm also having second thoughts about being a coach. It's beginning to be obvious to me that one of the keys to me being successful as a Beachbody Coach is for me to drink Shakeology, which is very expensive, even with the discount I get as a coach.  Don't get me wrong, it may be great for people who don't mind replacing one of their meals with a shake, especially since over the course of a month it may actually costing less (It's approximately $129 retail price for a 30 day supply, $129/30 = $4.30 a day approximately). If you're spending more than that for one of your meals, it could be worth it to replace that meal with Shakeology, especially since it's a better quality product than a lot of the foods out there. Not sure if it's right for me though - I'm going to check with my neurologist to see if either of the medications I'm taking have negative interactions with any herbs, if they don't then I'll try Shakeology.

That's it for this update, hope everyone has a great day!

Les Mills Combat Supreme Warrior Workout Day 51 - Shock Plyo HIIT

Good morning everyone! Having a good morning so far, did Shock Plyo HIIT this morning. I'm continuing to get better at the different moves in that workout. I have to work at my full-time job all day today, but in between calls (if we're slow again like we have been the past few days) I plan to work on ways to market my Beachbody coaching business. Everyone have a great day!
