Outwork your competition! 
And that would be YOURSELF...

The person you were yesterday! Yup!

Whatever you did yesterday, do it better today with more passion, more grind, more enthusiasm, all of it!  HUSTLE! 

That's how we become better!

Lentil-Lime Salad

1 cup cooked green lentils (cook in water for about 10 minutes. Do not overcook) 
1 medium carrot, shredded
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro (this  had me at Cilantro) 
1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
2 Tbsp lime juice
2 tsp Bragg Liquid Aminos 
Himalayan salt to taste 
1/4 tsp ground cumin

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, toss gently to blend.  Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 2 hours or so before serving. 

Let me tell you, make extras because the next day it tastes even better! 

Following the 21 day fix containers? I ate 2 servings measured in the yellow container. Save your yellows for this! So worth it :) 

Enjoy! 

Let me know what you think

22 Minute Hard Corps Eating Plan

Tony Horton’s new 22 Minute Hard Corps program comes with an amazing library of total body conditioning, military-inspired workouts, and an amazing eating plan as well.  Since diet contributes about 70% - 80% to the results you will obtain, don’t take this part of the program lightly please. 

If you’ve done the 21 Day Fix, the portion-control containers are the same.  You can use them and of course take recipes and ideas from then. 

What’s different about 22 Minute Hard Corps is that this time the nutrition and fitness experts give us suggestions of when to have them  and for which meal. Such a helpful tool!! I'm so happy they added this feature because it was very helpful for me. I know you will appreciate it as well. 

The 22 Minute Hard Corps food list is similar to 21 day fix but with some differences. You'll find more recipes and meal examples! Super exciting!! 
Remember the 21 day fix came out about 2 years ago and it was created about 3 years ago. As a company we have learned a lot and made a lot of improvements based on customers' and coaches' feedback!! 

There are also some great prep-ahead suggestions, how to repurpose leftovers, and how to tweak things up if you plateau. Lots of fun new recipes... Hello Chimichurri!! Oh my! Yummy!! 


I’m so excited about this program and joining you on this journey. 

Now, I want to ask you for a huge favor! Do you know of any friend, coworker or family member who you think would love to do something like this too???? Let your coach know so we can get them started too. 
This is the link to apply. Our team support group is Open to everyone.

HELL WEEK - 22 MINUTE HARD CORPS

Let me tell you about Hell week!!!! It is a bonus week, week 9, of 22 minute hard corps!! With Tony Horron, this is his new program, just released on March 1st. I'm still in the test group and of course I agreed to take on the Challenge cause seriously, why not! 

So is it hard????  Yeah!! Get ready to get your butt kicked big time. But don't freak out. Hahaha it is an awesome challenge. It is a tough week. You'll feel some soreness again, you'll be hungry, you'll want to quit, you'll be a little tired and that is all ok!! Keep calm! You will survive!! Don't miss this opportunity to take your journey to the next level. 

I am on Day 5! Some days double resistance workouts, some days double cardio workouts plus a third core workout (which are shorter).  

I am pushing myself to do more and I've noticed a few things that have changed this week. 
1. I'm sore but it's a soreness that tells you things are changing but the kind that doesn't affect your range of motion and agility. Pretty cool. 
2. My legs are hard as rocks and My upper body is getting much stronger. 
My midsection body fat is going down like crazy and today finally I was able to do all the reps in the Core 2 video. When we started I was reaching 13-15, today I could do all 22 without losing proper form.
3. My name is now Hungry. I am hungry and thirsty all day long!! 
4. I'm having a hard time slowing down and resting because I feel soooo energized all day long. Thank god I do sleep like a rock. 

Overall I feel like Wonder Woman.... Wait maybe I am 😜 
Here we go! Can't wait to see what others accomplish with this program!!! ✌🏻️ #getsome

Best Postworkout fuel

Post workout the best you can have is a combination of protein and carbs without fat. 

So no PB ideally. 



Good quality whey protein shake, my favorite awhich I drink daily is PERFORMANCE RECOVER
 Ezekiel toast and reduced sugar strawberry preserves. 

Goes right into the muscles and helps recovery so you see even better results, curve hunger throughout the day or night and prevents soreness.....  #tipoftheday
