What a week! P90X2 orders are in the mail and on their way to crazy fanatical people all over this great land of ours! I am so pumped up I can hardly stand it! If you want to read more specifics of how and when they are shipping, read my post from Monday called “P90X2 is Shipping!”. And today (12/7/11) marks the very last day you can buy P90X2 and get the free shipping incentive, so if you are looking to save some money and haven’t ordered yet, don’t delay!
Also, the Beachbody eGift Cards are a nice stocking stuffer so keep those in mind as you do your Christmas shopping. To learn more about them, read my article from last week “Gift of Fitness”.
I also posted my “Sample Vegan Diet” yesterday, so for those of you interested in what I’ve been eating these past 2 1/2 months, there you go! Like I’ve reported, it’s going really well. I feel strong, healthy, full of energy and endurance, and have actually gained a bit of weight (but not much body fat if any). That’s a big encouragement to me because I’ve always been nervous that on a vegan diet it would be hard to maintain muscle mass. Apparently not! I think I’ve gained some muscle mass without eating any meat :-). There goes that theory LOL!
In other news, my YouTube video went over a half million views this week! Thank you guys so much for continuing to share it with others, as that has led to a ton of exposure for teamRIPPED and what we are accomplishing here.
Remember gang, stay strong through the Christmas holidays and vacations. Sometimes a change in routine can really throw us off our groove, like traveling, taking time off work, or having get-togethers with friends and family. Those are all good things, and we should do them, but we also need to plan ahead so that those changes don’t derail our workouts and nutrition. I can’t tell you how many emails I get from people who slacked off for a day …. which turned into a weekend … and then a week … and now it’s been months and they’ve totally relapsed. Stay alert so that you don’t fall into that trap!
One of the best ways I’ve found to stay ACCOUNTABLE to yourself is to help others. I became a coach because I knew that if I were coaching others through their own fitness and nutrition, I would be forced to set the example and stick to it myself. It’s worked for nearly 2 years and counting! I’m not saying you should all become official Beachbody coaches necessarily, but I am issuing the challenge to put yourself on the line and offer to help your friends or family. Be their source of information, encouragement, and commit to walking with them as they set out to get fit. By committing to help someone else, you have the built in accountability to set the standard and be strong for them. If you want to ensure that you won’t fall off the wagon, then start helping others! There is no better source of accountability!
For those of you looking for the occasional Bowflex Dumbbell sale, today is a doozy! Alex from our team alerted me (thanks Alex!!!). Bowflex has been having a 5 days of deals special. Today’s special is the select tech dumbbells 552 WITH a bench AND free shipping all for 279.30 Just use promo code ‘DAY3′. I’ve seen them throw in a stand before, but never a bench (worth over $200). If you want a bench and the dumbbells, this is a smoking deal. But it’s only today. They will probably have other specials for the next couple days so stay tuned to the teamRIPPEDcom facebook page and I’ll post them as I learn about them. Those of you who get the email alerts can post the new codes in the comments section here to share with the team as well.
And 2 favors that I ask:
1) If you like the hard work I put into writing my articles and videos, PLEASE help me out by sharing them. Click the share links below them and share them on FB, twitter, etc. It really helps me get more exposure and grow teamRIPPED!
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.teamRIPPED.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!
Keep bringing it and inspiring others to do the same gang!!
