What’s New In My World

I LOVE this picture my friend had on her Facebook page!

Hello Fit Moms Fit Kids Club readers. I hope all is well! Life for me has been, well, busy! I hope you’ve noticed that I haven’t been blogging as much.  :)  Did you miss me?? In fact, I’ve slowed way down on blogging.  This was not on purpose, life has just been happening at a rate in which I haven’t been able to keep up.  I have some new and exciting things going on which I’d like to share with you below.  And, I also have a special request that I’d like to ask from you.

First off, what’s been going on with me?  This year has been quite unique in that I’ve been training as if I were going to play professionally this year, but I have yet to play in an event.  This is due to quite a few reasons that I won’t go into right now. But, I’ve actually enjoyed NOT traveling.  And, I’ve been OK with not playing.  Yes, I get a little itch to play now and then, but I really think that this really may be my final year of playing beach volleyball professionally. (I know I say that every year..lol)

The exciting thing that’s happened though this year is that I’ve become a fitness adviser or “coach”!  Last month I launched my first online accountability group! My participants can live anywhere in the USA or Canada. It’s been a blast! I have 2 small groups going on simultaneously.  Each group has a max of 5 people.  July 3rd will mark 30 days since this group began and I’ll have all of their new measurements and new weights, and I’ll share their progress (not telling you their names of course).  I’m so excited to find out how everyone is doing.  But, I can tell you this, one of my ladies lost 12 lbs in 2 weeks, and in week 3, she was 16 lbs down!!! I am so excited for her!! Also, one of my guys at the week 3 mark was down 10lbs!! :)

Not everyone in my private accountability group is trying to lose weight.  In fact some, like me, are just trying to get into the better shape, or to be more toned and fit. In my private groups my participants can ask me whatever questions they like anytime. They have full access if you will.  We have some live conference calls (about once a month) to answer any questions as a group. Other than that, everything is done online via, video, and our private online page where  I give them inspiration, and encouragement, and help them reach their health and fitness goals. Each group lasts 60-90 days. A lot of my participants hadn’t worked out in years! Others had just began by themselves and realized that they needed a coach and accountability to push and encourage them.

We are not meant to walk through life alone.  Many of us, myself included, have had to learn this lesson the hard way.  Being a “Lone Ranger” most times costs us more than we thought.  Also, surrounding ourselves with people who have bad habits can cause us to go down the wrong path. This is why coaching and accountability is so important. We all need someone to push and encourage us, and we need to surround ourselves with like-minded people to help us to stay on track helping us make better choices.

This group has been teaching me so much personally.  I’ve become more optimistic about the health of America, and have faith that people with a heart to do something with the right tools and support can do ANYTHING.

For more info on my private accountability groups, and how you an have an Olympian (me) help YOU reach your health and fitness goals go to my Facebook page Get Fit With Annett and message me for more information.  My July group is FULL… But, I will have a new group starting August 6.  All participants must contact me for consideration to join the group, and must be registered through me by July 25.  The group is first come first served, and I only take 5 people in a group, so contact me ASAP ONLY if you are ready to let ALL excuses go and are SERIOUS about becoming healthier.

NEW GROUPS FORMING EVERY MONTH! So Contact ME!!

3 Day Juice Cleanse Recipes

Hi Fit Moms!  As promised here’s the long awaited 3 Day Juice Cleanse Recipe list!  We can do this!  Please remember if you have any medical issues you cannot do this juice cleanse.  Pregnant or nursing moms, and no children can do the cleanse.  Sorry.  Everyone should check with their doctors before changing anything health wise, and before starting a cleanse.

In my post yesterday that talked about why we are doing a juice cleanse, and the benefits of the cleanse I mentioned that I based our plan off of the popular Cooler Cleanse and BluePrintCleanse.  I tweaked recipes from all over and used the ingredient list from both of those “Hollywood/New York” cleanses to make our cleanse.  I do not claim to have their recipes, as I have never tasted either of their juices.  But, we do have the same ingredients in our juices. One thing I did differently was to make two different Green Juices, to give us a little more variety on the green end.  We will also be drinking our juices in the order that Cooler Cleanse and BluePrintCleanse tells you to drink theirs.  :)

You will drink the following juices in the order listed 1-6, about 2 hours apart. Read this linked post for all of the information about our 3 day juice cleanse BEFORE YOU BEGIN! I’m attaching a PDF of the 3 Day Juice Cleanse Recipes for you to print out and have on hand.  Drink LOTS of water!!! Some of the recipes will give you a little extra juice (depending on how good your juicer is and how big your fruit/veggies are.  If that’s the case, save the excess just in case you are feeling like you need some extra nourishment during the day.  There are plenty of websites and books with more info on juicing.  I highly recommend reading as much as you can.  It’s good to educate yourself.  I’m just providing the basics.  :)

Side effects that you should look out for, and stop the fast immediately should they occur.   If you are lightheaded, dizzy, and feeling faint may mean you are hypoglycemic or even hyperglycemic. You may be diabetic.  These symptoms could also mean you are dehydrated. Diarrhea is possible with juice fasting. If diarrhea occurs, know that you are losing fluid and nutrients.  Of course you will feel hunger sensations, that is to be expected, but other abnormal sensations during a juice fast should be taken seriously.  If anything out of the ordinary occurs please stop your cleanse.  Fasting and cleansing is NOT for everyone.

Free Tip: I put my greens and ginger in my juicer wrapped around something that’s juicy to help out the juicer. Read the directions from your juicer before beginning. I did. :)  Enjoy!

With that said here we go!
