Summer and Fall races and Training update!

Summer and Fall races and Training update!

The end of June we traveled for 2 weeks to see family in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. We hit the Jersey Shore (Long Beach Island) where I got in a few runs but mostly beach, beer and candy. Then on to central Jersey where I think I got rid of my tan lines at the pool, got to catch up with Jersey friends and got back on track a little bit with nutrition and workouts (and gave my mother in law’s neighbors some entertainment, at least). Townhouse courtyard workouts for the win! Then we traveled on to Pennsylvania to see my family. We visited Hershey Park; I got some great runs in with my brother but got sidetracked with ice cream and cupcakes. The sugar struggle is real. I have a really hard time resisting it when it’s right in front of me. I just can’t. When I don’t buy it at home I’m all good but elsewhere, forget it!

So after I got back, I started up Shift Shop, which is a 3 week agility and strength training workout that progressively gets more challenging (and each workout increases by 10 minutes!). I just finished up week 2 so I’m pretty stoked to see how the final week of workouts are!

After I wrap up Shift Shop, I am ramping up the long distance running to start training for the South Carolina Ragnar Relay Ultra I will be running in the beginning of October. I will be running an 8, 10 and 12 mile leg each over a 2 day period so I need to get the training started! I am pretty sure I will be cross training with Sagi with the program Body Beast, which is a lot of weights and strength training. I need a break from Autumn Calabrese. Although I love her, we have spent a lot of time together with 21 day fix extreme over the past year and we need some space. I’m pretty excited to be doing more with weights and I think it will compliment my running very well.

I’m also running two 10k races during the Ultra Training, one in August and one in September to keep me motivated! If you’d like to follow my journey a little more please find me on IG at jodiprice55, I keep things a bit more updated there!

For the first time ever – you can have access to every single workout from Beachbody, ever made, for only $99/year. How does it work? You do the workouts from any device that can access the internet. So – smart TV, laptop, tablet, Ipad, smart phone…Roku, Chromecast.

My TV is 5 years old, and therefore not smart enough to have an internet browser. So I picked up a chromecast at Best Buy for about $35, and it’s connected to both my laptop and Android phone, and I stream workouts from either device to my TV.

Those days when you feel like doing something different, but the gym doesn’t have a class at the time you want to go –> you can do Beachbody on Demand. You can do it here or there, you can do it anywhere. You can do it, Sam I Am!  You can find an empty workout room at the gym and do your workout at the gym, while utilizing childcare at the same time (I won’t judge. I’m all about that gym childcare!!)

You are traveling for work and want to squeeze in a workout in your hotel room –> You can do it in a box, you can do it with a fox! You can do it, Sam I Am!

The kids are sick so you can’t go to the gym –> You can do it in a house, you can do it with a mouse! You can do it, Sam I am!

If you’re interested, I can get you signed up and give you support as well with recipes and encouragement!  Email me or find me on Facebook or Instagram! redk55@yahoo.com or facebook – I have a group Healthy Living 2017 or Jodi Redcay Price; Instagram JodiPrice55.

Do you see a difference?

Do you see a difference?

21dfx v T25.jpg

I was going through some pics yesterday and was looking at these two – quite the difference, no?  Two totally different programs with different results! 21 day fix has much more strength training, as you can see; while T25 has more cardio.  I’m starting to upp my mileage right now for a half marathon in December, so going to do more 21 day fix extreme workouts to balance out the cardio!  I need more muscle in my life.  Which one would you do?

If you wear white “sneakers” you ain’t hip!

If you wear white “sneakers” you ain’t hip!

A friend of a similar age to me (not old but not young) recently shared that the younger, trendier folks at her gym told her that white sneakers are totally out.  You must have a vibrantly colored pair of Nike’s.  And if you wear tube socks, which are IN (ankle socks are out) they also cannot be white. I don’t remember what color they should be, but not white, you loser.

I currently have a picture on my facebook profile background picture thing (You can check it out here, top right) in which I jokingly put on high white socks, thinking I was being comical, along with my yard sale acquired white saucony’s, which I wear to work out.  Then there were a number of comments about the fact that I actually bought and wore yard sale sneakers – which led to a facebook poll – in which it was pointed out that my yard sale sneakers, although a great deal, were worn in by someone else’s feet, not mine, affecting how they fit.

And, my feet have been bothering me sporadically wearing said shoes, so I stopped in at Run For Your Life in Charlotte to get a sneaker fitting.  They watched me walk and run and measured my foot, told me I pronated slightly (feet rolling in a little) when I ran, and said I was a 9 to a 9 1/2 and should get a stability shoe.  My yard sale shoes were a size 8.  Umm I guess that is why they bothered me, just a little!

Also, not a single pair of white running sneakers was sold at the store.  Not that I wanted white ones, I want to be hip and trendy!  I’m totally cool!   I tried on a pair of Saucony’s, Brooks and New Balance – the New Balance 860v were hands down the most comfortable – so that’s what I went with, in a trendy blue and green color (although these look slightly purple to me since I am color blind).  Voila – fresh kicks – ordered them off the New Balance site so I could say 15% along with free shipping – score.

So, are your shoes hip?  What ones are you sporting to the gym these days?

What is clean eating?

What is clean eating?

Clean eating is eating healthy, whole, unprocessed foods such as whole grains, vegetables, fruits, healthy proteins and fats; while avoiding unhealthy options such as sugar, salt, refined grains, artificial colors, preservatives and unhealthy fats.  Portion control is key and eating on a frequent basis (3 meals and 2-3 snacks spread throughout the day) is important to fuel your body.  Organic options preferred.

Examples of clean foods (and foods you can eat on the 21 day fix):

oatmeal, eggs, plain yogurt, ricotta cheese, cottage cheese, lean meats, whole grain breads, extra virgin coconut and olive oils, avocado, cheese, beans, lentils, quinoa, whole grain pasta, potatoes (and all other veggies), bananas (and pretty much all other fruits), raw nuts and seeds, salad dressings without added sugar, salt, unhealthy fats (there are some out there).

When I first started eating clean a few months ago…some things I had to purge from my diet:  cereal (wah!  I love cereal!  There are some clean cereals but Frosted Mini-wheats ain’t one of them), deli meats, general baked goods, ranch dressing (I need to start making my own), pretzels, canned soups, packaged pancake/waffle mixes and BUTTER.  I probably miss butter the most, we were good pals.  She is sitting very forlorn in my fridge wondering what she did wrong.  Sorry babe, you’ve been replaced with Coconut Oil.

Before I started eating clean I was resistant because I didn’t want to have to do more cooking than I already did and that’s what it seemed like…but it’s really not more, it’s just different than what you did before.

I’m sure I am missing some information from this overview – if you are reading this and have any tips to add about clean adding, please comment so we can all have the info!
