Operation: Wedding Slimdown — The Beginning!

OperationSlimdown

I am beyond excited to share this post with you today.

Two of my good friends have made the jump to  GET HEALTHY!!!!! To maintain their privacy I will call them Tracy and Julie.

Tracy is getting married in a little over a year from now and Julie is her Maid of Honor! We have been talking for a little while about this but having the wedding getting closer lit a fire under their butts to get moving! I am totally thrilled for them.

Today was our first weigh-in and measurements! We calculated BMI, set short term and long term weight loss goals, discussed their workout schedule, and went over my Food Guideline Packet. (More about that and some other services in about a week or so 🙂 )

Tracy is at 207lbs and Julie is at 204 lbs. 

Long term goal: – 56lbs by early January

Short term goal: 8-10lbs per month (about 2-3 lbs per week)

They also made a great decision and starting Monday are going to be drinking Shakeology to replace one meal a day! With their particular Challenge Pack they also got 2 workouts : Hip Hop Abs and Rockin’ Body. Both are high cardio, fat-burning, ab sculpting workouts..and best of all THEY GET TO DANCE!!! They both love Zumba classes, so I figured this would be perfect for them.

Meal Plan: stick to the guidelines in the Food Guideline Packet + one cheat day per week + Shakeology one meal per day

Workout: Hip Hop Abs & Rockin’ Body

I am so pumped to monitor their progress, kick their butts, and watch them transform their lives and their health!

I am also excited to share their experience with you! Starting today, I will start giving you updates on their progress, struggles, and comments every Saturday after our weekly meeting.

Operation: Wedding Slimdown has begun! Stay tuned 😉

30-DAY VEGETARIAN CHALLENGE!!!

Over the last couple of months I have done a lot of reading about the health benefits of a Vegetarian diet. For clarification purposes, a vegetarian is someone who does not consume meat but may occasionally consume dairy and/or fish. Different people are comfortable with different levels of consumption of dairy and fish and it is a completely personal decision. A vegan, on the other hand does not consume any animal products whatsoever.

Check out this quick video on the benefits of a vegetarian diet!

 

 

I have been consuming a vegetarian diet since this past January (almost 7 months) and I feel absolutely fantastic! Not only has my energy level skyrocketed, but being a foodie by nature it allows me to eat a ton a food every day!

Many doctors, like the gentlemen in the video above, are huge advocates for a vegetarian diet for many reasons. Some even promote being a vegetarian during the day and eating a meal with meat at dinnertime. Even that is said to increase health! The problem with switching to a vegetarian diet is most people jump into it without doing the proper research. We do get some valuable protein and iron from animal meat. These are two important nutrients that people seem to lack when they go meatless. However, they are very easy to replace with the right foods! When I first went vegetarian I had to do boatloads of research to ensure I was consuming enough calories every day, getting enough protein (which is actually a lot easier than it seems), and especially getting enough iron!

BUT  I am here to make this process a whole lot easier! I am starting a 30-day VEGETARIAN CHALLENGE! With my help, and the help of Shakeology, I challenge you to experience the health benefits of a vegetarian diet.

How does Shakeology help?

Shakeology offers a vegan option for two flavors of shakes; chocolate and tropical strawberry. They are dairy-free and soy-free! By purchasing and committing to Shakeology for one month, you are guaranteed at least one meal per day that is full of essential nutrients for a vegetarian. Shakeology also helps increase energy and aids in weight loss, if those are your goals as well.

How do I help?

Well, if this isn’t obvious already I will elaborate. I have DONE all the research and am living a much healthier vegetarian life! As your coach for this challenge I am here for support; nutrition tips, recipes, recipe ideas, along with all the encouragement needed to help you discover the benefits of eating vegetarian.

What do you need to do to join the challenge group?

  • Email me (cassimalec@beachbodycoach.com) or Facebook Message me (www.facebook.com/cassi.malec) to find out how to purchase Shakeology and join the private Facebook Group dedicated to this challenge.
  • Commit to eliminating meat for 30 days and drinking a Shakeology shake once per day.

Start Date: July 8th

Spots Available: 10

You Get:

  • One vegetarian meal per day – Shakeology
  • One – on – one guidance and support via the private Facebook Group (or via email if you do not have Facebook)
  • Group support from others also participating!
  • MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!! – if you are not satisfied with your results I will give you your money back for your purchase of Shakeology!
  • Nutrition advice, recipe ideas, my recipes, and other ideas/experiences that make the transition easier!

If you decide at the end of the 30 days that eating a vegetarian diet REALLY isn’t for you, there will be absolutely no hard feelings. I am not a preacher and am not trying to “convert” you by any means for any moral reasons whatsoever. I am only trying to give people an easy way to switch to a vegetarian diet without having to search all over the web for healthy replacements. Why reinvent the wheel? If I can help get YOU to a healthier YOU, that is all I am aiming for!

GO VEGGIES!! 🙂
