6 Tips to help you get the best results from Country Heat


Country Heat is a fun  way to get fit and lose weight while dancing to your favorite country music. Here are 6 tips to help you get the best results. Email coach Brenda Ajay for more information coachbrendaajay@gmail.com
When most people think about country line dancing, they usually think about having fun with some friends, dancing their worries away and recreation - not fitness. But it is possible to get great results, lose weight and tighten and tone with dance when you follow the right program. Country Heat, a new country music inspired dance workout, was designed by Autumn Calabrese to make working out more fun. Her goal for Country Heat was to create a program that would transform people's bodies without the feeling like they were working out. “That’s exactly what makes Country Heat so powerful — you’re going to have so much fun doing it, you won’t even realize that you’re burning tons of calories and working your entire body,” says Autumn. While you may have failed to finish other programs before, Country Heat will make you want to keep coming back for more.

Workouts are just 30-minutes long and they're full of energy, yet low-impact and easy enough for anyone to follow. You don't need to invest in any equipment and you don't need a lot of room, just a comfortable pair of shoes and a willingness to commit to a 30-day program.
The biggest reason why Country Heat is so effective is because it is a complete lifestyle program. Besides the 30-minutes of dance fitness every day, the program also follows the same color coded portion control meal system as 21 Day Fix, and a great support system to make sure you complete the program and see results.

Although Country Heat is meant to be fun, it's also a total body cardio workout and it's challenging enough for people of all levels of fitness. Here are 5 tips to help you get the best results from Country Heat:

1. Push Yourself with Every Move

As with any workout plan, you should always challenge yourself and perform the most difficult exercises with control and good form. You can follow Autumn's lead in every exercise, but if you feel like find you're not able to keep up simply follow the modifier. The modifier is a dancer in each routine who is simplifying the moves a bit. It will be less complicated, but it will target the same muscles. “The key is to challenge yourself,” says Calabrese. “If you push yourself, and have fun while you’re doing it, you will see results.”

2. Follow the Eating Plan

“You can’t out-exercise a bad diet,” says Calabrese. If you want to see results you must manage your nutrition. To make that as easy as possible, Autumn Calabrese created an eating plan based on the same portion-control system she has used in other fitness programs,  21 Day Fix and The Master’s Hammer and Chisel. But for Country Heat, she spiced it up with country-inspired recipes that make losing weight more delicious than ever.



3. Drink Shakeology

Country Heat is a fun  way to get fit and lose weight while dancing to your favorite country music. Here are 6 tips to help you get the best results. Email coach Brenda Ajay for more information coachbrendaajay@gmail.com
Shakeology is not required for this program but it will help you achieve the best possible results. Simply replace one meal each day with Shakeology or use it as a snack and it will help you fight off cravings, keep you feeling full and give you the necessary vitamins and minerals you need to complete your nutrition for the day.

4. Be Consistent

The dance moves are very easy but there’s a progression to them—they become more complex as you work your way through the program. The more consistent you are with your workouts, the faster you’ll master the moves. “That consistency is also the key to reaching your fitness goals,” says Autumn. “If you want to see results, you can’t skip workouts—you have to be committed and consistent.”

5. Watch the Breakdowns

Each workout in the paid program comes with a 15-minute primer to help you learn the moves. “Yes, it’s an extra 15 minutes, but each workout is only a half hour, so we’re still only talking about a total of 45 minutes, which is shorter than a typical gym workout,” says Calabrese. “And those 15-minutes will be well spent — the more proficient you are with the moves before you begin the workout, the more you’ll get from it.”

6. Join a Challenge Group

Online challenge groups are the most convenient way to get fit and stay fit. Studies show that people who exercise with support from friends are more likely to finish their exercise program, achieve better results and are able to maintain their fitness longer. But let's face it, it's not always easy to find someone to workout with and sometimes it's just not comfortable working out in front of other people, even people who are close to you. Online challenge groups give you the opportunity to workout the way you want to, at your own pace and in the comfort of your own space. Simply check in to the online portal throughout the day the let the group know how you're doing. You'll get tips, motivation, recipes, meal plans and all the support you'll need to complete the program and get great results!

Shakeology Special Offer!

Friday, July 29, 2016

If you're thinking about giving Shakeology a try, now is the time! There's never a discount on Shakeology, but here's a great way to buy a one month supply and get a fitness program for free! The details about the offer is below this post, but first I think it's important to answer some questions you might have...

What is Shakeology and why is it such a big deal?

Google search "meal replacement shakes" and you will find page after page of choices. So I understand why people have so many questions about Shakeology. It's true that it's one of the higher priced products out there, but it's also much better in quality. I was skeptical at first just like many of you are, but once I decided to give it a try, it wasn't long before I could feel and see the way it was improving my health. My skin, hair and nails were noticeably healthier. I was no longer bloated after eating meals and I could control cravings. I didn't feel "starved" in the afternoon. I was sleeping better and had more energy throughout the day. And best of all, it helped me manage inflammation that had been causing me pain for years! I was pleasantly surprised and I was also curious about what's in Shakeology that sets it apart from all the others and this is what I learned.

Why is it important that we supplement our diet with Shakeology?

Our food today lacks nutrients. Food suppliers have chosen to modify the way that they grow and process  the foods that we eat in order to compete in our economy. Unfortunately for us as consumers, that means we sacrifice the natural health benefits found in real, organic foods. Even foods we think look fresh and healthy like fresh produce, meats and dairy has been modified to yield bigger crops and longer shelf life, and in doing so they sacrifice nutrition. That means we’re putting more food into our bodies that has LESS of what we need, and MORE of what we don’t need.
If you really want your health to improve, start by becoming aware of what you’re eating and drinking and how it’s affecting your body. Learn to choose foods that strengthen and support your health and not sabotage it. It is possible to fight disease and aging with food - real food.
So how can Shakeology help strengthen and support your health?
Shakeology is designed to nourish the body inside and out. The best nutrition should give you more energy, leave you feeling well and maintain good digestion. When researchers were developing Shakeology they identified five vital ingredients that the body needs in order to thrive. They combined them and came up with a formula for a supercharged, multivitamin and protein-rich heath supplement that is as delicious as it is healthy.


What's in Shakeology that makes it so healthy?

1. Whole foods – So many supplements on the market are incomplete. When foods are re-engineered and modified they become unbalanced and less nutritious. Most of the nutrition in Shakeology comes from high-quality foods, herbs, grasses, fruits and vegetables, that are processed minimally to preserve their goodness.

2. Vitamins and mineralsShakeology is supplemented with extra vitamins and minerals for balanced nutrition.

3. Enzymes – Enzymes are extremely important to your health. But when we cook food it destroys enzymes. Even if you eat all raw food, the enzyme content is still too low for most people to benefit from. Enzymes are behind every single process in the body!  Your digestion, metabolism, creation of new blood cells, etc., everything is fueled by enzymes. That’s why the addition of enzymes to Shakeology was so critical!

4. Prebiotics and Probiotics – We’ve all heard that probiotics found in foods like yogurt are so important to good digestion. But did you know that the body can, and should, produce its own probiotics? That happens when the body uses prebiotics. When we eat heavily processed, fast and junk food it breeds unhealthy bacteria in our body. Prebiotics found in Shakeology fight that unhealthy bacteria and maintain good balance in your digestive system.

5. MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) – MSM is a naturally occurring sulfur compound found in fresh, raw fruits and vegetables, milk, fish, and grains. But within hours of harvest, MSM changes and is virtually gone—which is why it’s very difficult to get MSM naturally. Long ago, man ate foods as soon as they were harvested. But today, it’s picked, processed, and packaged for months before it hits the table. Which means, by the time food gets to you, MSM is long gone. MSM is very important to our health because it maintains proper "spacing" and connection between cells. When we aren't getting enough MSM it can cause pain, stiffness and inflammation in the body. When your cells stay healthy and flexible, your entire body will do the same.

As you can see, Shakeology is just pure nutrition. There's nothing scary or hidden in it. The best way for you to find out how Shakeology can help you look and feel better is to try it for yourself. I want you to be just as pleasantly surprised by your results as I was.

August Special Offers:

As you can see, Shakeology isn't a "magic" weight loss potion, but it is super dense nutrition. And to achieve the best results it's best to incorporate Shakeology into a healthy lifestyle including healthy nutrition and daily fitness. That might sound overwhelming, but really it's just a matter of making some simple lifestyle changes and having the right mindset. Joining an online challenge group is a great way to get off to a good start. We'll help you create a plan that allows you to fit good nutritiona dn fitness into your busy life and we'll provide all the tools, tips, motivation and support to make sure you achieve success.

Thursday, July 28, 2016

Replace one meal a day, or use it as a nutritious snack and watch your health improve in so many ways!
Shakeology is quick and easy to make so it's perfect for people who are on the go. Especially if you're in the habit of skipping breakfast! have a Shake and a healthy mid-morning snack and you'll have plenty of energy to get you though the morning without reaching for junk food.
Think Shakeology is expensive, think again! Stop for a minute and add up what it costs to eat out for lunch, or have your morning coffee at Starbucks or drive through meals. Most people find that replacing just one of those cash and carry meals a day with a Shakeology is a lot less expensive!

5 Minute Meal Plannning

Sunday, July 24, 2016

Quick and easy method for 21 day fix meal planning in less than 5 minutes by Brenda Ajay www.happyhealthysmart.blogspot.com

What's the #1 reason why people hate meal planning?
Yep... It takes too much time!


Meal planning is supposed to simplify your life. It's designed to save you time and money, not add to your frustration. Here's a really simple method that you can use to keep meal planning quick and easy.

Quick and easy method for 21 day fix meal planning in less than 5 minutes by Brenda Ajay www.happyhealthysmart.blogspot.com
I call this the P V C (protein - vegetable - carb) plan
Think of it this way, plan to have a protein (Red) a vegetable (Green) and a carb (Yellow) with every meal. Then fill in the blanks with what's left.
It should only take you 5 - 10 minutes to complete the meal plan.

**Ninja Tips:

  • To keep things super simple repeat the same breakfast, lunch and snacks every day of the week. Then you'll only have to prepare one meal each day!
  • Your dinners will be super simple. Pick a protein (chicken, fish, shrimp, turkey, lean red meat), add a vegetable, then add a carb (potato, sweet potato, rice or quinoa). It doesn't have to be fancy. 3 things - that's it!!!


Here's the process step-by-step:

1. Use the formula in your nutritional guide or click here to find your calorie target. I've chosen the 1500 - 1799 range. Once you know that target you can use the calorie chart to decide how many containers you are allowed to have each day.

Quick and easy method for 21 day fix meal planning in less than 5 minutes by Brenda Ajay www.happyhealthysmart.blogspot.com
2. Write your container break down on a piece of paper or use the 21 Day Fix tally sheets to track containers.

3. Use a piece of paper to make a meal chart. Label each meal and snack like this:
Breakfast:
Snack:
Lunch:
Snack:
Dinner:
Snack:

4. Assign contiainers to meals first by giving each meal a Red, Green and Yellow container
Breakfast: R - G - Y
Snack:
Lunch: R - G - Y
Snack:
Dinner: R - G - Y
Snack:

5. Cross those containers off your tally sheet and fill in the blanks with the containers that are left. That will leave you with a "formula" that you can use for every meal plan. Here's what my main formula looks like:
Breakfast: R - G - Y - P
Snack: R - P
Lunch: R - G - Y - P - O
Snack: G - B
Dinner: R - G - Y
Snack: P - tsp x 2

Once you have your main formula figured out you never have to do it again. Use it as a starting point and make adjustments if you need to. For example, my morning snack is almost always a Shakeology with berries and ice (Red - Purple), but occasionally I like to have a Shakeology with unsweetened almond milk and natural peanut butter.
Here's how I adjust for that day:
I take the yellow away from my lunch and use 2 tsp for peanut butter. My new lunch plan that day will be R - G - P - O, which could be a small summer berry chicken salad.

    Quick and easy method for 21 day fix meal planning in less than 5 minutes by Brenda Ajay www.happyhealthysmart.blogspot.com
  1. Repeat the same breakfast, lunch, and snacks every day. Then you only have to prepare one meal!
  2. Make one of your meals or snacks a Shakeology. In one scoop you'll have perfect nutrition without even thinking about it. At $4 a serving, that's a bargain compared to what you'd spend if you were buying breakfast or lunch out.
  3. Use Team Beachbody's free account to access quick and easy recipes. Click here to set up a new FREE account with me as your coach
  4. When you find a recipe that you like or that's a big hit with your family, keep it on file so it's easy to find in the future. Keep a "family favorites" folder with meal plans and recipes the whole family likes. Or use Pinterest and create a board called "favorite recipes" separate from your main recipe board for only those recipes that you ave tried and liked.
  5. Network with other busy moms and share ideas. Create a Facebook recipe exchange group. Make it a public group so anyone can join in. Click here to join our 21 Day Fix Friends Recipes exchange group
  6. Create theme nights like Pasta night, Taco Tuesday, Sandwich night, Meatless Monday, etc
  7. Eat leftovers. Or use them to make a new dish. For example, when I make roasted vegetable, I always make more than enough. The leftovers are perfect for Pasta Prima Vera the next day. Just mix them with some pasta, extra virgin olive oil and garlic.
  8. Search Pinterest or Google images for "21 day fix meal plans" and you'll find hundreds of meal plans that you can use.
  9. Clean, cut and prep foods ahead of time. Spending that extra hour to wash, slice and prepare food when you get home from the grocery store might seem like a lot of work but trust me it will save you time in the long run. Wash and slice produce, hard boil some eggs, make a large batch of plain rice or quinoa, grill some chicken and portion some snack foods like grapes and cheese, almonds, hummus, etc so that they will be ready to go and you can just reach for them when it's time to eat or cook dinner. Another advantage to prepping food, you won't believe how much space this will save in your fridge!!!
  10. Make a grocery list and stick to it. Make sure you have everything you need, ready to go and on-hand to make cooking a much quicker and less frustrating experience.
