Save Money On Fitness and Wellness Products With Groupon Coupons


Are you a Groupon junkie? I was for a while and my favorite thing to get wasn't anything to do with fitness. I loved getting groupons for massages, pedicures, manicures or facials and as you can see, I'm a spa junkie. My girlfriend was the opposite, she must have taken every boot-camp, Zumba or yoga class that was offered in her area.

Now you can get more deals on Groupon because the company is offering Groupon Coupons. Do you need a new pair of workout shoes or do you need new workout equipment, grab a  Groupon coupon and go shopping. I found a couple of these coupons from the following vendors:

  • NIKE SALE | Up To 40% Off Clearance + Free Shipping
  • Total Gym Direct: $200 Off Total Gym FIT
  • Sears: Sears - Desk Treadmills
  • GNC: Get A 15% Off GNC Coupon
  • Sole Fitness: Incredible - Free Shipping Treadmills At Sole Fitness
If you are trying to lose weight, there are coupons for diet progrms, such as Nutrisystem and the Medifast diet. Check out these deals below:

  • The Mayo Clinic Diet: Free Diet Profile

They even have coupons if you prefer to exercise at the gym. If you don't have a membership anywhere, check out these coupons first.

  • 24 Hour Fitness: Free First Month & More For New Customers
  • LA Fitness Coupons & Promo Codes
What I like about Groupon coupons, you don't have to pay to be a member of the coupon program and if your favorite company on the list isn't offering a coupon at this time, you can add a coupon alert for that company.

If you like to save money or you are on a budget, check out Groupon coupons and you might find a lot health and wellness deals as well as deals on other items.

Break That Weight Loss Plateau Cardio Challenge

Have you been stuck at a certain weight for weeks and it is leaving you a little frustrated? If so, I would like for you to try my Break That Weight Loss Plateau Cardio Challenge for two weeks. 

In order to break that weight loss plateau, you must increase the intensity of your workouts. You might be in a rut and have been doing the same thing for weeks or months. In order to continue losing, you must stimulate your metabolism from time to time. For example, I started with a client whose biggest complaint was that she wasn't losing any weight. Upon examining her workout, I found out for eight months she stayed on the same speed at 3.0 mph on the treadmill, she said she didn't even sweat during her workouts anymore.  Because she was hesitant about increasing her speed,  I told her to increase the incline to 2% to 4% without holding on to the side or front rails. It worked because two weeks later, she lost another 1.5 pounds. 

There are other ways that might help you break that plateau and that would be to decrease your daily calorie intake, to increase the amount of sleep you are getting and to under estimate the amount of calories you are burning when exercising. 

When I workout on cardiovascular machines such as the bike and treadmill, I like to input a weight that  is five pounds less than my current weight. If I use the Precor elliptical, I decrease my weight by 20% because ellipticals have a tendency to overestimate the amount of calories you burn up to 40%. If you aren't sure what to do, use the 20% rule on your total calories burned during the workout session. If your machine or FitBit says you burned 600 calories subtract 20%-30% of the total from what you burned. Your caloric intake for that session would 480 calories instead of 600 is you subtract 20% from the total calories. In the weight loss battle, it is better to underestimate your calories than to overestimate them.
*Treadmills are the most accurate of all the cardiovascular machines when you are able to input your weight before working out.

Back to the challenge, if you are ready to start back losing weight again, download this two week challenge and tell some friends to join you, as they say, more the merrier.

Non Dairy Corn Chowder

Chicken Corn Chowder With Cashew Milk


I found this recipe on the internet and it is by Del Monte. I pinned it in the autumn and said I would make the soup on a cold Chicago winter's day; I never got around to making it. Since the weather this spring has been up and down, I decided to try it yesterday.

The recipe uses a can of Del Monte low sodium cream of corn and low sodium whole kernel corn, low sodium chicken broth, green onions, low fat milk, Del Monte diced potatoes, thyme, flour, salt and pepper. I couldn't find the low sodium cream of corn so I bought the regular cream of corn. Since I have a milk allergy, I decided to make it with cashew milk. I bought unsweetened cashew milk by Silk but I wished I had bought the sweetened cashew milk. The recipe also called for cheddar cheese or sour cream but my client suggested bacon and I liked that idea better as a topping. Hey, I even went organic on one ingredient, I used my garden green onions which are already back and growing strong.

Here is my review of the soup:

I didn't like it right away because I think the thyme was too overwhelming but after letting it sit for hours before dinner, it tasted way better. Next time, I will use 1/2 teaspoon of thyme.  I felt the chowder could have been a little sweeter so next time I will use sweetened cashew milk. I loved the bacon as a topping and I only crushed up one slice for me and the hubby. The other two slices were crushed up and mixed into the soup. To my surprise, the hubby said he enjoyed it and was happy that I made something different other than my typical chicken noodle soup. 

This recipe is two thumbs up and is affordable and healthy. You can follow the recipe as is or make the same changes I made. Let me know if you try it for your family one day.

Body For Life - A Throwback Challenge Program


This program was the "Thing" in the late 1990s and early 2000s. It was one of the first programs to use the internet to help people transform their bodies through diet, protein products and exercise.

The people in his challenge would weigh in, take before and after pictures and compose an essay on why they should be considered the champion in their age and gender category. Bill Phillips provided a meal plan with one free day and a workout his challengers needed to follow. He also encouraged them to eat and drink protein shapes by EAS. At that time, I think he owned the company. Abbott Labs bought his company eventually.  Prizes were given out and the prize money was in the thousands. Bill Phillips and EAS changed many lives.

On Monday, I decided to do the challenge even though the program looks to be in disarray. I'm in my fifties and I want to see if I can get a smoking hot bode, LOL. My friends are like. "you look good already" but I want see if I can achieve "The Dream". It is my own personal challenge and I won't be taking  any supplements. I will eat 6 small meals a day with protein shakes and bars as a meal replacement. However, this week, I'm doing my Smoothie Jumpstart Diet to bring my weight down fast. The six meals a day diet will start next week. I will post my before pictures next week because it takes courage to display your flaws.

Update on weight and workouts:
Weight on Sunday 154
Today's weight 4/27/16 152
Workouts are going great

If you are interested in the Body For Life program, you can purchase the book or join the challenge.
