Weekly Check-In

Happy Wednesday Team!

I hope you are all having a fantastic week!  It’s already the middle of May and it feels like summer is right around the corner.  It’s not quite warm enough to go to the beach, but it feels like that’s coming up soon!  I really like getting outside this time of year because it mixes up the workouts a bit.  This past weekend I broke out my bike and went on a 25 mile ride on Saturday and then a 40 mile ride on Sunday.  It all went smooth except for my front wheel deciding to fall off once.  Thankfully I was stopped 🙂  For me, biking is a great, low impact form of exercise to supplement what I do outside of the home gym.  What kind of things do you like to do outside in the summer to help stay active?

My success tip for the week falls in line with article I posted last week.  My tip is to set some non-scale goals when you’re getting started.  If you focus on the scale too much, it’s easy to get discouraged and quit.  It is just one of many measurements.  Plus it can take a while for the scale to move as your body adjusts to working out, so it could look like you’re not making much progress when in fact you really are.  So don’t strictly focus on the scale.  Pick other goals as well, that you know you can control and accomplish.  Something like saying that you’ll complete every workout this week, or you’ll cook 5 dinners this week.  Those are things that you know you can check off and will get you headed in the right direction.  For more ideas, go read my article about Non Scale Victories.

Other news on the Beachbody front has been a little slow, but Summit (the annual Coach conference) is coming up in a few weeks, and I’m sure there will be plenty of news from that.  One thing I did notice, was that the P90X3 Elite Workouts had a nice price drop.  So if you’ve done P90X3 and were considering the Elite workouts, they are at a much more reasonable price now.  I’m glad they dropped it because I felt it was a bit too high.

Please shoot me an email and let me know how you’re doing!  My goal as a Coach is to help you reach your goals, so keep me in the loop with what’s going on in your world!

And 2 favors that I ask:

1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my articles and video, PLEASE help me out by sharing them.  Click the share links below them and share them on FB, Stumbleupon, etc.  It really helps me get more exposure and grow Team New Body!
2) Also, as always, remember that the way I benefit from being your coach is that I earn a commission from any Beachbody products that you purchase, as long as you buy them through my site, www.teamnewbody.com, or by logging in to www.teambeachbody.com to do your shopping (If you buy from the plain beachbody site I get no credit). It helps with the amount of time I spend answering all your questions and helping you out. Thank you! I really appreciate it!
