You KNOW there’s nothing like seeing for yourself your body transform through pictures!  It’s undisputable the results of hard work.  Take a look at Cindi’s amazing 8 week transformation. Remember:  1 pound a week of weight loss is average!  Congrats Cindi!  WOW!  Read about her journey in her words:

It’s been 8 weeks since I made a decision to invest in myself. When I committed to this program is was because I was convinced I was “broken” and couldn’t lose weight. I was working out and I thought I was eating right. But the scale and pictures were saying otherwise. I was actually gaining weight.
However, over these last weeks I have learned so much and realized I was doing so many things wrong.
#nonscalewins
I have realized my journey is my own
That my gut/digestive system may the issue to not losing weight
I have more confidence in myself
I have learned that some foods I love don’t love me back
Positive Mindset is so important for me- and I need to work on it just as hard or harder than eating right and working out to lose this weight.
I have lost 7 inches throughout
Clothes are getting baggie on me.

11 pounds
#struggles
I still want to use food as a celebration when times are good.
I tend to slip back into old habits of eating my comfort food.
During my last 4 weeks on this program I am going to challenge myself to the Vegan Detox. (God help me!! ) It scares the heck out of me but it’s a must to know I have done everything. Mainly because I feel that my gut is the culprit to why I can not drop the weight. As you can see in these pics I am losing inches but the scale is showing differently.

Cindi’s results are amazing, but since she still is experiencing gut issues we are going to try her out on a vegan detox protocol.  Stay tuned for her next 4 week results!  


Spinning tomorrow  at 12:10 – 12:50  Fuel Fitness.  Until we get the TRX bands up and operational, we’ll be continuing with the regular schedule.  See you soon!

I’m sorry, but I just have to share….this marinade is OUT of this world.  Hardly any ingredients, super easy to make and tastes AMAZING!  Give it a whirl!

Grilled Lime Chicken Marinade

4 – 5 oz. skinless, boneless chicken breasts

2 T. olive oil

1 tsp. lime zest + 2 T. fresh lime juice

1 ½ tsp. paprika

¼ tsp. phs (pink Himalayan salt)

1/8 tsp. ground black pepper

Instructions:

In a large bowl, place chicken, 2 T. oil, lime zest and juice, paprika, salt and pepper.  Mix to coat chicken.  Marinate in refrigerator for 20 minutes.  Then GRILL!  YUM!

( You can substitute lemon instead of lime, I just REALLY like how lime makes it pop!)

It’s a Spinning kind of day.  Time to get your Cycle on!  See you soon:  Fuel Fitness Octane Studio 12:10 – 12:50.  Let’s GOOOOO!

 

 

It’s pretty easy to get off track when traveling.  OH there’s so many temptations and fun places to eat.  I mean just LOOK at this view!  

ANYWAY, as you may or may not know, we just returned from a road trip (13 hour road trip by car mind you).  So, I wanted to share with you what to do and what NOT to do!

This is WHAT to do:

  1.  Pack a cooler IF YOU CAN!  I packed cottage cheese, berries, bell pepper strips, homemade trail mix, apples and TONS of water.  
  2. Every time you pee, DRINK to replace it! (Yes, there were many pit stops).  
  3. Bring GUM to keep your mind and mouth busy.

This is what NOT to do:

  1.  Pack a cooler for on the way back home TOO!
  2. Don’t substitute pop or alcohol for water!
  3. Avoid chips, popcorn, pretzels SNACKY food when you’re vacationing = water retention

It’s truly easy to eat healthy on the road if you choose your restaurants wisely.  This is a simple grilled salmon with salad and it was FANTASTIC!  You CAN be smart if you plan and prepare.  

It’s also truly easy to be UP 6 pounds in weight when you return back home by following the NOT to do list!

To be continued….I plan to be back in my weight range by next Monday!  Stay tuned and plan, prepare and SUCCEED!

Cheers,

Anneliese

Group cycle with me today in the Octane Studio!  12:10 – 12:50.  All you need to do is get there and I’ll do the rest!

Spinning seems so intimidating until you realize it is just a healthier version of a night club...
