Are you in a fitness rut?
Do you have a gym membership collecting dust? Do you feel like you don’t know which cool new program to try or how to get started? Do you hate they idea of paying a ton of money out of pocket for something you’re not sure that you will like? Then we should definitely be friends 😉
Hi! I’m Lindsey Nagorski
… a 36 year old teacher, mother and wife who used to be very physically fit. Then came two huge kids which caused a lot of weight gain and major diastasis recti. A bunch of different weight loss programs (including a roller coaster of weight loss and gain) and 10 years later I’m here to share the tips and tricks that I’ve learned along the way!
Part 1: Beachbody
Over the last 10 years, the ability to work out at home has been extremely important to me. With two small kids, a husband with a crazy schedule and a gym without daycare the various Beachbody programs seemed like the way to go. I signed up for a coach and completed p90x, Piyo and the 21 Day Fix… complete with Shakeology and all the other stuff that comes along with it. *Sidenote- don’t ever, EVER get the strawberry Shakeology.. blech!!
At one point my dvd player stopped playing my Piyo dvd’s correctly and I didn’t really want to spend the money buying an entire package without being sure if I’d like it. Beachbody on Demand had JUST come out and I jumped all over it! With on demand you can stream ANY of the Beachbody workouts and download all the program information at a much lower cost! This as an awesome option if you’re like me and want the ability to quit a program (and try something else) if it isn’t working- without feeling like you just wasted a ton of money!
But don’t you still need “stuff”?
Well, yes and no. Depending on the workout you want to do you will likely need at minimum a yoga mat and a few weights or resistance bands. A quick run to Target or Walmart will get you whatever you need at a reasonable price or you can check out the links below. As for shakes and supplements, I’ve found a lot of luck with products from GNC and Costco!
