Try something different: UFC Championship

Left May 2016 vs Right May 2011

These past few months I am been in a runt in my health and fitness.  I started Hammer & Chisel and lost more weight, but afterwards work stress started to catch up with me.  I have not been in the mood to workout, keep up with meal plan and eat healthy.  I feel like all I want is to be alone.  I feel stressed out =(  I love my family but I just want my me time.

Then I get the comments about how I dont look good.  I look better fat.  I guess I lost too much weight too fast.  Then again this past week I have not been feeling good.

So I use to go to the gym.  I was a member of 24 Hour Fitness when I first was trying to lose weight.  I cancelled this membership and signed up for UFC, but as a new mom and working full time, this gym did not work for me.  I started to workout at home with Beachbody programs.  They were very convenient and help me lose the weight.   I use to work out at 5AM, then got ready and dropped off my daughter to daycare.  Now that I am a charge nurse and work 7AM to 3:30PM, I have not found a good workout time.  I used to work out at 6PM, cook dinner, eat then go to bed by 9PM.  I feel like this routine is not working for me. 

So I signed up for the gym again, this time UFC Championship Membership.  This membership allows me to go to UFC at Waiklele or Kakaako, do functional fitness like boxing and Daily Ultimate Training (crossfit style workouts), MMA training, jiu-jitsu, and group fitness classes like Cize, Insanity, PiYo,  Turbokick, Bare, Yoga, Zumba.  I will need to wake up at 4AM, leave my house to get to the gym by 5AM, work out for 1 hour, get ready before 6AM and start work at 7AM.  I think this is possible.  I just need to make the time and commitment.

Are you still doing Beachbody?  I was a Team Beachbody member and Beachbody coach and decided to stop doing this.   At time, I was an Emerald Coach, but I could not manage trying to be new charge nurse and online health coach and hustle to get people to drink Shakeology and try Beachbody workouts.  I then decided to keep being a Beachbody "discount" coach for the discount but realize I was spending too much money to be a coach.  When your a coach, you do not have to pay the full retail price of $130 for Shakeology and the videos.  I didn’t want to lose my emerald status so I made sure to buy my monthly Shakeology or Beachbody product.  I was defiantly a sucker who fell for all things Beachbody.   When I did my taxes, I never really made money doing the business and spend more money with all these workout out products. So I quit being a coach, changed my coach, but stayed being a Team Beachbody member which has a small discount. At least I was not required to always buy something. They started a new service called Beachbody on Demand which has exclusive videos. I thought the service was cool to watch all these trainers the I grew to admire, but then I felt it was humbug to sign on and connect to do a workout. I stop using the service because it was not convienient any more. I still have and love all the Beachbody videos and the 21 day fix portions.  I believe they were helpful in my weight loss  and I will never take for granted the information I learn from it, but I would not recommend becoming a discount coach.
