Welp, it ALWAYS feels good to finish a program! 30 days of fitness with an
ALL IN mindset
paired with good, real food. It doesn’t get any better than that y’all! Typically
when I do a program I follow the nutrition guide plan to a T. I didn’t do that with Country Heat because I was following the ketogenic plan. I’ll still share all my results with y’all!
I chose this program in particular because I wanted something low impact. I severely sprained my ankle in March, then re-injured it in May :(. Super tough, mentally & physically. The injury paired with my hormones being all over the place. I wanted something where I would be able to still move without over doing it. Country Heat did JUST that!
What the program comes with: a nutrition guide with recipes (tasty ones too), a schedule to follow for the workouts, portion control container system, and a month’s supply of Shakeology. I have a great video explaining the portion control container system used for multiple programs. This system is so SIMPLE! It takes a little getting used to (like anything) but honestly, I miss the containers as I’m trying to figure out this whole keto thing.
With the containers, I knew EXACTLY what size of portions to eat of different foods AND I was able to learn what the actual portion sizes LOOKED like with my eyes! We overeat y’all…amen?! lol. It’s time to take back control! I made this meal plan for my friends that did the program with me in my accountability group. Here’s a glimpse for ya!
Looks pretty simple & tasty, right? I also have the container count & grocery list for all of this. You can get that by clicking here:
What you can expect with the workouts: about 30 minutes a day, 6 days a week for 4 weeks/30 days. Starting in week 2, twice a week you do 2 workouts. Still totally doable and fun!
The workouts are dance cardio put to country music. Very simple steps but it gets your heart pumping! My average heart rate was around 145 for each workout-that’s right in the fat burning zone y’all! The workout intensity is solely based on YOU and what effort you put forth. The more I got into the moves and full range of motion, the harder it was! The first week I didn’t go all in because I’m not a HUGE fan of dancing BUT I did laugh a lot. The second week I NEEDED a good sweat so I over exaggerated the moves, laughed, and involved my pups and I got that sweat that I was wanting.
I streamed my workouts online through the OnDemand feature on Beachbody’s site. I liked that I was able to do it whenever I wanted, wherever I wanted. I didn’t have to stay home if I didn’t wanna, although, all my workouts were done here lol.
For the nutrition…I followed the keto diet. This isn’t the portion controlled container system that I’m used to and love very much lol and what you see above. It’s different and involves math which I don’t like.
I was eating around 2300 calories for week’s 1 & 2. I was adapting to eating 70% fat and I didn’t want to have to worry about calories etc. I lost 2 lbs in the first week, but then gained it back in week 2. I started keeping track of just how many stinkin’ calories I was eating for weeks 3 & 4. I ended up losing a pound total.
A typical day looked like this for me:
B: Shakeo bowl/shake with almond milk, hemp seeds, coconut flakes, & chia seeds
S: Coffee with coconut milk, keto almond meal muffin with ham
L: Protein and veggie (usually leftovers)
S: 1/2 Avocado with veggie
D: Whatever I made for us that night (protein, veggie, fat)
1 lb loss and about 5 inches lost! I’ll take that as a win!
