BistroMD Launches A New Program

Now you can order a la carte, no need to buy a month's worth of food.  The new program is called Balance by BistroMd. You can order when you need it and there is no membership fee. You can choose meals just for breakfast if you like or if your problem is dinner, you can do that too. You only want 7 meals, you order what you want because you are in control.

For those who don't know, BistroMd is a healthy meal delivery program. You will receive the meals frozen and you can eat them when you like. I tried the program two years ago and I loved it. Even though I didn't need to lose that much weight, a few pounds, it got me back on track after a long holiday season.

It is a great program for those who are too busy to cook.  For example, if your problem is lunch because you eat out at work everyday with your co-workers, you can opt for BistroMd meals instead. The Balance program will save you money and calories especially calories because you know how caloric those lunch meals can be.

Read my review 

Here are a few of the meals that are on sale this week:

Cinnamon Sweet Potato Pancakes 
with Peach Compote

Hatch Green Chile and Pork Stew

Lasagna with Garden Marinara

Pork Tenderloin with Whole Grain Mustard Sauce

I also forgot to mention above, that you can order if you are on a special diet. They have meals if you are looking for a heart healthy program. They also have gluten free, low sodium, low carb, diabetic, dairy free, vegetarian, or meals for women who are in menopause. Check out their meal delivery program and get started on your new healthy lifestyle to get you back in balance.

Save Money On Fitness and Wellness Products With Groupon Coupons

Post is sponsored by Groupon, but all opinions are my own.

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:

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.
