Fit Friday Finds July 19

fitness nutrition Jul 19, 2019

Sooo...there's a new product from the Beachbody boosts line - COLLAGEN!

My husband was talking about how he’s actually been wanting to try some for wrinkles and I’m not gonna lie I am totally game too!

Our collagen is DIFFERENT than other collagen on the market. It doesn’t include the protein like the others do. It is specifically targeted for hair, skin, and nails - and it is PROVEN TO DELIVER CLINICALLY SIGNIFICANT RESULTS. It is proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

It does NOT target joints like other collagen products do. I am hopeful that this means BB is making a product that DOES target joints, but we don’t have one yet.

In summary: our collagen is:
- A SMALL scoop size
- Targets hair, skin, and nails
- It delivers POWERFUL, proven results

It's limited in what it does, but it's VERY VERY good at what it is supposed to do.

Check out: Collagen

Now let's take that Collagen Boost and make a delicious recipe out of it, shall we?

5 Things that Can Go Wrong When You Work With a Coach

Let's face it, we can hire the coach, buy the workout, buy the Shakeology, get the 2B Mindset Nutrition Plan ... but still not have results?

Are you going to blame it on your coach? No, you won't because you know better than that. 

 

Here are the 5 things that I personally find go wrong when people hire a coach (be it here from my Beachbody business, or even when I myself have hired a business or mindset coach).

  1. Not following the program
  2. Not letting your coach know your REAL goals
  3. Not keeping in communication with your coach
  4. Not tracking progress
  5. Not including personal development

I'll elaborate below:

1. Not following the program.  Your coach has a course, or in the case with my company, you get a FULL fitness calendar, a full meal plan, a program guide and even journals for mindset with some programs. If you are working with your Beachbody on Demand, you'll find this all under Program Materials.

2. Not letting your coach know your REAL goals. When you join...

5 Tips on Creating an Impactful Morning Routine!

When you think of waking up early what is the first thing that comes to mind? I’d be willing to bet you get excited to wake up earlier to get your day started, but once morning hits you hit that snooze button & figure you will just start tomorrow.

8 Weeks Healthier - Lifestyle LIIFT

Uncategorized Sep 20, 2018

Ya'll I have been BLOWN AWAY by how much LIIFT4 has been shaping mine and my community member's lives!

 

 

This program has been all about BALANCE and getting that 'lifestyle liift' as I have to call it!   I've loved it so much since doing early access with the exclusive Coach Test group, I'm ready to just SHOUT IT FROM THE ROOFS

 

You've probably seen in my stories on social media (Instagram @TamaraLeeBratton or Facebook Tamara Lee Bratton) that for me, this program has done the following:

  • Given My husband and myself a workout we can DO TOGETHER

  • Given my body rest

  • Allowed my body to start cycling again (will note I also finished breastfeeding at the start of this program)

  • Given me TONS of confidence as I lifted weights bigger than I thought I could (girl, sometimes I have a 45 pound weight!)

  • It's just been FUN - like super fun to do 30-40 min workouts and feel AMAZING from it!

 

 

So what all did I do differently with...

What You Need to Know About LIIFT4

Uncategorized Sep 20, 2018

I have been a coach for about 3 years and this is by far the MOST excited I have been about the Launch of a new program because of the fact that it is a full lifestyle focus meaning you learn how to balance being active with living your life and doing workouts on your own time - literally you pick the 4 days a week you want your workout and the others are recovery days - days to play in the pool with kids longer, go for a long hike, run with the dog, or just sit on your happy bottom! It's your days!  And you get a cheat day in nutrition - what!?!

 

 

You can TRY it by clicking here - seriously one FULL workout from this program that can help you make this decision!

Becoming a Mom of 2, a Tip For Your First Kid!

Uncategorized Sep 20, 2018

Here is one short and simple tip that changed my life when I became a mom to two. 

 

In the weeks leading up to our second daughter joining this world, I was nervous. Our older daughter had just turned 2.5 and was at what I found to be her most fun stage yet. She was talking with me, playing games, being creative with play, and I overall LOVED to spend time with her.  I knew that was going to change, and I knew she was going to still want that time.

 

This concern about time was soon to be relieved.  A good friend of mine had become a mom to two and she said that one of the best tips she had been given and wanted to pass along to me was to give my first child 5-20 minutes of undivided attention after our baby had arrived.  

 

Short, and Simple.  That's all it took for both my older daughter and myself to find fulfillment.  The evening time after our infant went to bed became play time for a minimum of 5 minutes up to 20...

Healthier Breakfast Options For You and Your Family!

 

Breakfast on the go is very common - or even if you’re home breakfast in a hurry is common too.  There's nothing wrong with something quick, but if we can try to be more careful in our choices, it could made a world of difference in the energy you bring to you day.

 

Here’s a video I watched that kinda had this idea to gather up some quick and healthy options.  Bonus, if you use the same nutrition plan I use, Portion Fix, most of these have the measumrents listed for you in the link and I’ve also added them to the list for ease.

I LOVE breakfast so it’s hard for me to narrow down my favorites, and by NO means am I saying I’m perfect, but here’s 5 options, maybe try one or two next week and get back to me about what you tried and what you thought....
