What is Focus T25 and Is It Right for ME?

What is Focus T25 and Is It Right for ME?


I am sure by now if you follow me at all or are a part of the TeamBeachbody Community you have heard the CRAZY buzz about the 25 minute workout program.  Focus T25 was created by Shaun T who is a trainer for Beachbody.  He is also the creator of Insanity which is a 60 day high intensity home fitness program.  T25 delivers you the results of a high intensity one hour workout in just 25 minutes.  I can honestly say that it REALLY works!  I would consider myself to be someone that is in very good physical shape.  I go into each workout knowing that it is only 25 minutes and that I am going to give it all that I have for the entire 25 minutes and get the best workout possible.  There is no doggin it and no half ass!  When you look at the workout that way you get a greater calorie burn.  So that is why the program is so effective, you get in, get to work and are done!


My wonderful hubby and I are doing it right now!  We both have great things to say about it!
I am a beginner to fitness will I be able to do T25?
Yes, you will definitely be able to do it.  Tanya provides you with great low impact modifications to help you build your strength and stamina.  As you begin to get stronger you can start to up your intensity.  You will still get results from doing the modifications because your fitness level is different than everyone else's.  You will still burn calories and it will be effective.  As you get stronger it is important to push yourself harder in order to continue to get results.

How much space do I need?
You do not need a lot of space at all.  All you need is a small living area space that you can move forward and backwards in.

What supplements do I need?
Truthfully everyone should add in Shakeology to their new workout routine.  Not only because it is your daily dose of dense nutrition but because it is going to give you 1 meal a day that you do not have to even think about.  It has over 70+ all natural ingredients that you can buy at the grocery store but it would be crazy expensive if you decided to purchase them all individually.  Plus wheat grass does not taste very good at all!  Beachbody has found a way to give you Shakeology which has all of those amazing natural ingredients that keep your body in tip top shape but it actually tastes good vs tasting like dirt!  Honestly, as a mom, as a penny pincher and as someone who LOVES HER SWEETS and is afraid of new concoctions I can tell you that it does taste AMAZING!  I've found my favorite recipes that I alternate through but it's so easy and it really keeps me healthy.  I haven't been sick in a long time!  I contribute it to Shakeology and all the good for you ingredients!

Energy and Endurance:  If you are like me, I wake up WAY to early!  I wake up at 5 am so that I can workout before my kids get out of bed.  But this also leads to a little bit of the morning drowsiness.  So to combat that, I drink Beachbody's Energy & Endurance pre workout drink.  1 scoop in a glass of water, chug it down and within 10 minutes I have a nice little pep in my step!  Not too much pep where I am jittery but an even increase in energy.  It tastes like lemon lime and I actually LOVE it!



Energy and Endurance Pre Workout Drink

T25 is a 10 week program that is split into two phases, the Alpha and the Beta Phase.  Each phase lasts 5 weeks.

So why should I do T25?  Everyone has an excuse and everyone has a busy life.  You don't have to give me the excuse that you don't have enough time anymore!  Everyone has 25 minutes to do a workout and it's not just any workout.  It's a workout that is going to change your body if you choose.  We all make choices each day.  We choose to watch a TV show vs workout, we choose to go through the drive thru instead of packing our lunch, we choose to have a cookie in the break room or we choose to eat our packed snack.  We make choices each and every day that either bring us closer to our fitness goals or widen the gap between what we want and what we have!  T25 gives you that option, you would be crazy not to take it!


T25 is also good for those mom's and teachers out there that have to get up early to head to work. We want to get our workout in before the kids wake up but don't want to get up at 4 am to do it.  Instead just 30 minutes earlier can get you enough time!!

Loaded Baked Potato

 Loaded Baked Potato

Ingredients:
- Potato
- Turkey Breast
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Broccoli   
- sea salt (optional) 


Directions:
I cook mine the super, easy way...microwave! First, clean the potato.  Poke holes with a fork.  Wrap in a wet paper towel and cook for 2 minutes or until soft.  Cook broccoli in microwave separately.  When finished, slit potato in half and layer with warm turkey (or any meat), shredded cheddar cheese, and broccoli.  You could also substitute the meat with cottage cheese.

 Blueberry Oatmeal 1 Yellow
 Ingredients:
½ cup of 100% whole wheat quick oatmeal

1 cup of water

Directions:  Place all three ingredients in a glass bowl and cook for recommended amount on the back of the oatmeal box.  Depending on if you use fresh blueberries I would only add those at the end but if frozen place in the bowl before placing in the microwave.  If your someone that is short on time (like myself) making this recipe in a large batch and then quick reheat is a saver on time as well.

Transformation of the Day!

Yep, its ME!!  I am very proud of my progress! I feel great, I have more energy and CONFIDENCE than ever before!!  Since my journey with Beachbody, I now have the courage and confidence to do things that I wouldnt have done otherwise.  Todd and I participated in the Foam Glow this past August and ran a 5K.  Not only did it feel good to support a good cause, but we had a BLAST!

Todd and I spent our 8 year wedding anniversary at a resort in Wisconsin. It was the first time since having kids that I felt comfortable in my bathing suit. It was so nice not to have to hide  behind my towel the entire day at the pool.

I also had my 20 year High School Reunion last August.  I finished a round of the 21 Day Fix beforehand and I felt amazing!!  My husband bought me a brand new outfit for my reunion that made me feel like a Hot Mamma!

This is not a one time fix for me.  This is a lifestyle change.  I am now a better mom and wife.  My life is at its best because I FEEL my best!!





Thanks for joining my 5 Day Sneak Peek! I hope I inspired you in some small way.  

With Love,
Misty  xoxo

 WHAT EXACTLY IS A CHALLENGE GROUP?
Once you choose your workout program, I will assign you to a Challenge Group.  A challenge group is a small team that is formed by me as your coach.  We are a private page on Facebook.  Each day, you would workout at home at a time that is best for you.  Then you would log onto our team page and post your workout?  Why?  This is what keeps you accountable.  The purpose of the team is to get support from me as your coach.  Each day I will motivate you, keep you accountable and give nutrition tips.  You also converse with the other teammates each day of your challenge.  Most of all...IT IS FUN!!

 DINNER:
 Clean Eating Mexican Lasagna



Made this last night for dinner and it really hit the spot.  My 6 year old daughter said that I should make this meal every night, it was so good!  It's definitely not the cleanest meal out there but it is a special treat.   Make sure to watch your portion sizes because with this meal its easy to go overboard!




 Ingredients:


  • 1lb lean ground chicken (or turkey)
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (low fat)
  • 1 cup of cottage cheese
  • 1 cup of clean salsa
  • 1/2 cup of black beans
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 4 low carb whole wheat tortillas, cut into strips or use whole (I bought mine at Jewel)
  • corn (optional...I used frozen)
  1. Preheat over to 400 degrees.
  2. In a skillet pan sprayed with nonstick spray, cook the ground chicken and onion until brown.  Once cooked turn to low and add salsa, black beans and taco seasoning and mix together.  Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, combine 3/4 cup of the cheddar cheese and the cup of cottage cheese.
  4. In a baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray, line the pan with 1/2 of the tortilla strips.  Scoop 1/2 of the meat mixture on top and spread out, covering the tortillas.  Then add 1/2 of the cheese mix on top of the meat and spread.  Repeat the layers again with remaining strips, meat, and cottage cheese.  I sprinkled frozen corn. Top with remaining cheese.
  5. Cover and bake for 40 minutes and enjoy!  350 calories per serving. 

    SNACK:
This is a personal favorite of mine!  You cannot go wrong with chocolate and peanut butter!
