Mini Victory Post!

I am a bit excited about a mini victory at Crossfit today so I thought I would post it, I got a new deadlift PB today! 245lbs!! Woohoo!  I did start my Shakeology shakes today...maybe that was it! Then we had to do Karen - 150 wall balls with a 14 lb ball, it took me 8:37......legs are a bit wobbly now! Fingers crossed they are good for my course tomorrow!

I am happy to announce that I am a independent seller of USANA supplements as of this summer. I am super excited about promoting these products after seeing the research on them. First of all they have very high quality vitamins and research has shown that they are much more bioavailable then the majority of the other vitamin lines out there. What do I mean by bioavailable? Your body is able to absorb much more of the nutrients in each tablet then they are of other ones out there. What every your body is not able to absorb, your body excretes it, usually in your urine. What’s the point of spending money on vitamins if they are just going to run through your body rather then help you?

Second, they are guaranteed to not have any banned substances in them. For the average person this is not a big deal but for a competitive athlete this is a BIG deal! Athletes have to be sure that whatever they put into their body does not have any banned substances otherwise there could be bad, career ending consequences. USANA stands by this so much that if an athlete tests positive due to their products they will give the athlete 1 million dollars! How many other companies out there are so confident in their product that they offer this? Well over 350 athletes trust USANA on their quest to top physical performance so why shouldn’t I?

Not sure if you need vitamins or what you should be taking? USANA has their True Health Assessment you can go through and it will offer suggestions on where you may need the help of supplementation – Check it out!

Calling all P90X or Insanity Addicts!

As of recently I am become an online coach as a part of Team Beachbody. Beachbody is the company that made P90X (and the new P90X2), Insanity and many other great at home workout programs. Though I didn’t think of it at the time (though in retro spec I should have), adding this side venture may be very well timed or a little late – you be the judge! 

I am now selling a whole range of products for them from their fitness videos, fitness equipment and supplements. Great in the sense that there are many items that would make fantastic stocking stuffers and Christmas presents right! Or how many of us have that New Years Resolution of eating healthy and exercising regularly but then fail as we do not have a plan in place to help us with our goal? It can be a great gift to yourself to start off 2013 strong and in the right direction!

Downside? I only have so much time to get my name out there before everyone buys their Christmas presents! So this will be a bit of a test of how I can use my SEO and online marketing skills to get word out there. I am up to the challenge!

How did these past months fly so fast?!?

Well here I am starting the ball rolling with my blog posts. If you have not noticed it tends to come in waves.....  It has been several months since my last post, mostly due to being busy with work, travels and training. Here is my recap!

August - I went to japan with our Woman's U20 National Soccer team as one of their therapists. We were lucky to see several areas - Sundai,Kobe, Saitama and Tokyo. One of the highlights was eating Kobe beef in Kobe and doing modified Crossfit workouts on playground and in various parks!

September - Wrapped up my training for my October marathon, started teaching First Aid to Police Officers and got a few great outdoor rock climbing sessions in!

October - Ran a half marathon the second weekend of October in San Fransisco, got back home on the Monday and then on Tuesday I left for Copenhagen with my Fiance. We were there for a night and then flew to Greenland to run! I ran a full marathon and he ran a half marathon, all covered by Adventure Marathons - (we won our trip through their Facebook competition in the spring!!). The marathon was called the Polar Circle Marathon and it was small but FANTASTIC!! I definitely have to go back to Greenland to explore!

Stay tuned as I will be posting pictures from these trips and there are a few exciting things brewing right now that I will be talking about!

As for November I am making it my "off season" and let my body rest before some big running challenges in 2013!
