Clean Week -- Coming October 2017!

clean week, beachbody, beachbody, clean week, clean week megan daviis, shakeology, healthy, keto, support group

COMING OCTOBER 3RD!!!


The first step is always the hardest. I know, because I took that first step a little over 2.5 years ago. It wasn't easy realizing I NEEDED a change.. But I knew that if I didn't want to end up getting stuck on medications, and having to STAY on them forever.. Or being stuck on that roller coaster.. then I needed to just start...

BUT....

What if I failed? What if it didn't work?

I started a different way... A way I'm not currently using.. A way that I wouldn't have been able to keep up with.. Hell.. I got bored in 2 months...

3 months in--- I realized... I needed something else... THIS was it...

Exercise 30 minutes a day.
Eat clean.
Drink a shake.

That’s it! But trust me, I get it that many people remain skeptical about whether this will work for them too. Mostly because we convince ourselves that we simply don’t have time. That’s a super typical mistake we make. But the truth is, it’s all about priorities—if you want it bad enough, you will make time.

TIME... 30 minutes.. That's just a matter of waking up a little bit earlier.. JUST DO IT! :D

But for those that remain hesitant and not exactly ready to go full-throttle just yet, I’m so excited that Beachbody is introducing Clean Week.

Clean Week is a new program designed specifically to ease you into a healthy lifestyle. When this was announced at Coach Summit this year, I said under my breath: GAME CHANGER. Why? Because it is important that everyone get a taste of the Beachbody lifestyle and this nails it in a simple and non-assuming way. I love this!

This program is the perfect way to...


  • Ease into fitness with easy-to-follow workouts.
  • Learn the basics of proper eating—not just “dieting."
  • And get a taste of what Beachbody offers.
And get this, you’ll be able to try the workouts for FREE on Beachbody On Demand (BOD) when it’s released! No membership required, just enter your email, accept the terms & conditions and you’re set.

**You'll be added to a private support group!!**

[ASK me about a discounted FULL ENTRY TO GROUPS!!!!!]

What is Clean Week All About?


Clean Week is a 1-week beginner level health & fitness program that eases you into a new healthy lifestyle. In these 7 days, you’ll learn how to eat right and workout in a way that won’t feel overwhelming—the program makes it feel EASY!


After just one week you can expect to:


  • Begin losing those first few pounds
  • Feel stronger physically and mentally
  • Have more energy throughout the day
  • Kick those unhealthy cravings
  • And feel CONFIDENT that you can continue!


----------------------------------------------------------------------
Clean Week Workouts

Daily Workouts

There will be 4 different workouts on Beachbody On Demand. Each workout focuses on a different fundamental of fitness: Active Flex, Strength, Core, and Cardio. You’ll rotate through each of these during the 7 days of the program.

Equipment

And the workouts don’t require any special equipment! The only required equipment for Clean Week is a set of hand weights, the size will depend on your strength, my guess would be 3-5lbs. A fitness or yoga mat is a good idea for some of the floor workouts, but not required.

Modifier

If you’ve ever tried another Beachbody program, you know that most include a modifier, someone you can follow along with if you’re struggling and need to slow down. Well, Clean Week is a little different as it includes an intensifier. If you feel like the workout is too easy for you, you can follow the intensifier for a more challenging workout.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Clean Week Meal Plan

Nutrition Plan

The program meal planner that comes with Clean Week breaks down everything you need to know to start eating healthier. Since everyone is different, your nutrition plan during the program will be customized to fit your specific needs. You’ll learn how to plan and prep your meals for the entire week so you’re ready to go! There will be a variety of recipe suggestions that use ingredients anyone can easily find in their local grocery store.

Daily Shake

You’ll also get to try Shakeology, our complete nutrition shake, with a 7-day sampler pack.  I've always struggled with nutrition, and vitamin deficiencies, AND IBS!! Shakeology has really helped me! Plus, it helps curb unhealthy cravings—the hardest part of trying to eat healthier! You can learn more about Shakeology here.
And honestly, the shake is so good that you’ll feel like you’re “cheating” on your meal plan!

Creamy Chicken Bake

Eat fat to burn fat?

Yep... It's true.. IT WORKS!!!

AKA... KETO!

The “keto” in a ketogenic diet comes from the fact that it makes the body produce small fuel molecules called “ketones”.1 This is an alternative fuel for the body, used when blood sugar (glucose) is in short supply.
keto, low carb, ketones, lchf, clean eating, healthy dinner, creamy chicken bake, ketosis

Ketones are produced if you eat very few carbs (that are quickly broken down into blood sugar) and only moderate amounts of protein (excess protein can also be converted to blood sugar).

Ketones are produced in the liver, from fat. They are then used as fuel throughout the body, including the brain. The brain is a hungry organ that consumes lots of energy every day,2 and it can’t run on fat directly. It can only run on glucose… or ketones.

On a ketogenic diet your entire body switches its fuel supply to run almost entirely on fat. Insulin levels become very low and fat burning increases dramatically. It becomes easy to access your fat stores to burn them off. This is obviously great if you’re trying to lose weight, but there are also other less obvious benefits, like for example less hunger and a steady supply of energy.

When the body produces ketones it’s said to be in ketosis. The fastest way to get there is by fasting – not eating anything – but obviously it’s not possible to fast forever.

A ketogenic diet, on the other hand, can be eaten indefinitely and also results in ketosis. It has many of the benefits of fasting – including weight loss – without having to fast.

Learn more here...

I go back and forth with wondering if I should follow this ALL the time... Since I used to always use it as a way to GET BACK ON TRACK... But, now that I've been pretty strict for over 4 weeks, and I feel amazing, I can't help but to continue it.

I don't just tell you to live it, I LIVE IT TOO!!! 

Still unsure... How about a HEART warming success story?

"I've been working with Amber for 5 months now. She's quickly become someone I look up to very much. She is an amazing coach and inspires me to be the best version of myself every day. I've come to love working with her and in her groups very quickly; they have all been so amazing and supportive to me. I used to think I was just stuck the way I was, but Amber has given me the courage to push past those thoughts and become a much better version of myself. I now know that I can do whatever I think I can as long as I push myself there. I have so much more self confidence. This experience has changed my life so much.  I've had ups and downs in these few short months but I've accomplished so much.  I'm 25 years old, and when I was only 24 I was put on blood pressure medication because of my unhealthy eating habits, and how overweight I was, my blood pressure was way too high. Now through this program and with Amber's help. I have changed my habits to much healthier ones, and have lost almost 50 pounds and my doctor took me off the blood pressure medication last month. I love how supportive this program is and everyone in it is so encouraging no-one is ever belittling or berating anyone. It is an amazing support system to have behind you when trying to make such a big life change. I don't know if I  would have been able to come this far on my own without Amber's help and the help of her groups and the ladies in them. I'm so grateful to have found new friends and an amazing support system to guide and help push me through this journey I'm on and I can't wait to see where it takes us all."
-Adrianna, Dickson City, PA

WHEW!! That girl gets me EVERY TIME! <3 <3 


I KNOW.... I KNOW.... "But making an investment is H A R D ... You're right, it is.. BUT.... so is being 24, and having high blood pressure, so is being 25 and being told you're obese.  So is being 27 and being told you're at risk if you try and get pregnant, so is having to take medication for all different types of things WE CAN PREVENT through proper diet and exercise. 


We all have the same amount of time in the day, it's what we do with it... We're all entitled to earn the same amount of money, it was out choice (one choice somewhere) to do what what did--to get where we are--to earn what we currently earn.. SO make the best of where you are, and DO WHAT YOU CAN to make a future you're proud of, that your kids are proud of, and one that you'll be around for....
