The Chalene Johnson Rest Day Tip I Was Doing on Accident

Important rest day tip

Hey everyone! I wanted to take a moment to share this Periscope I did over the weekend because making time for your rest days is just as important as putting in the work in the gym. If you’re depriving your body of valuable rest time, you’re sabotaging your growth and weight loss goals. Listen to your body. If it’s telling you to rest, shut it down and take it easy. There’s no shame in it. You’ll feel so much better after resting that you’ll be able to jump right back in with both feet the next day. Trust me, it’s worth it.

Best of Beachbody May 11 2015

I’m starting a new series that takes the previous week’s Beachbody blog posts, pulls out the best of the best, and provides you with summaries of the “must reads.” From workouts to Shakeology recipes and motivational posts, the Beachbody blog has a ton of good content that we know most of you guys aren’t keeping up with, so my hope is that an ongoing, abbreviated list will help keep you reading, learning, and motivating yourself.

Intermittent Fasting: Good? Bad? or just HUNGRY!?

Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent Fasting: Good? Bad? or just HUNGRY!? Today we’re talking about fasting – we’re talking about being flippin’ hungry, which I am, right this second. “Why are you hungry, Jimmy? You’re in your kitchen, just grab something to eat. You are probably wondering, “Why are you hungry, Jimmy? You’re in your kitchen, just grab something to eat. And what is all that behind you?” I’m going to get to that. So I have always been a guinea pig with my diet. I have the 100 lb weight loss story, but I have always been willing to try new things. I have been vegan, I have done raw, I have been primal, paleo, everything in between. From eating a kind of a body building menu, to, like I said, raw food, which was nutrient dense but the calories were really low. I have always been willing to try new things, just to experiment…

I Am Sick of Feeling Fat! Why is Weight Loss Confusing?

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson I swear that was my mantra from elementary school age until my early 20’s! Have you ever felt that way?  You decide you are ready to take that next step. You truly have a burning desire to finally start taking action to live a healthier lifestyle, but you have NO IDEA where to start!  There has never been more information available about weight loss, fitness, health and nutrition.  But what is the right plan?  There are so many options: Low Fat Diet Atkins Diet Paleo Caveman Diet Cabbage, Lemonade, Cayenne Cleanses Dukan Diet MMA Training Bootcamps Gym Classes High Cardio Low Impact Cardio Cross Fit P90X The Biggest Loser Personal Trainers Long Distance Running Burst Training Sometimes having too many choices is as paralyzing as having no choice.   Every time we read one report, see news broadcasts, or hear from a friend about a program…

Increase Your Energy In The Office By Changing When You Eat Carbs

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson When it comes to energy, weight loss, and nutrition I’m not sure if there is a more controversial topic than Carbs! Are they the enemy? Are they vital? Are they like “The Force” with a dark and light side? Now I am not a nutritionist but I do know Carbs, the slang term for Carbohydrates, are vital for the human body to run.  If you are looking to increase your energy, your carb intake is very important.  The key though is knowing WHEN and WHAT KIND of Carbs you should be eating. Like I said, I am not a professional nutritionist, but I am someone who was able to lose 100 pounds and keep it off for over 10 years.  My energy levels have been compared to that of an excited puppy dog seeing his owner after they have been gone all day.  So the…

How a Busy Working Mom Finds Time for Herself, Family, Eating Healthy and Losing Weight

In the words of Jesse Spanno…”There’s Never Any Time!!!!!!!” by Kelly Nelson Busy Mom’s Guide to Losing Weight “How do you do it?” That’s a question that I get a lot.  I am a full time working Mom who has managed to get rid of her baby weight, find time for workouts, eating right, family time and working as a Beachbody Coach, but balance it all out with date nights and cheat meals! I have to say that it’s not easy and it’s something that I struggle with on a daily basis.   Asher, our precious angel, turned one in February and the past year has been a year of challenges, change and growth (but not on my waistline!) With the overwhelming responsibilities that come along with being a new Mom, it’s often easy to put ourselves on the back burner and just focus on the rest of the family….

When Opportunity Knocks Will You Be Ready

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson I have always been one of the most avid sports fans I know. From a very young age, I loved the drama of a buzzer beater or a last second Hail Mary to win a game! Athletes were larger-than-life figures who allowed me to play out my sports fantasies in my front yard pretending to be Troy Aikman, Michael Jordan or Nolan Ryan. I have also always been fascinated with the story of the under dog. The player the ‘experts’ said didn’t quite have the size, speed or athleticism to play in the big leagues, yet overcame the odds to shine their brightest on the biggest stage.  The history of sports is covered with them. Names like Rudy, Doug Flutie, Spud Webb, Kurt Warner, and now the latest sensation… Jeremy Lin! For those of you who don’t get your daily dose of ESPN or Sports Center, Jeremy Lin has…

Pick My Brain – You Have Weight Loss Questions, I Have Answers

by Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson Very few things in life are super duper consistent; however, I have noticed something lately that always makes me laugh to myself. As a business owner and a work at home Dad with a flexible schedule, I find myself running most of my errands during the day. (Which is awesome; very little traffic and never crowds to battle- especially at the grocery store!) More often than not, I am wearing some sort of Beachbody gear while running my errands. A P90X jacket, INSANITY t-shirt, or just carrying my Team Beachbody Elite Coach backpack around. It’s amazing how these things become not only a conversation starter, but at times its like they are a green light for people to approach me and open up their souls! I don’t mind it at all! In fact, I LOVE IT! It usually starts with them asking me weight loss questions like,…
