Bypassing the bypass

Bypassing the bypass

Jan 20, 2016

Bill L. has gone through a lot! After having a triple bypass surgery, he came back strong to complete a round of P90X and Insanity and is closer and closer to achieving more goals he’s set for himself in 2012. Hear it in his words below: I have always been an athletic guy who enjoyed working out for most of my life. But middle age had crept up on me, and by the summer of 2010, I was in 3X shirts. I went shopping for pants right before I left for a trip to Ecuador in September of 2010. It was time to move up to 42 waist too. What a horrible feeling. Once in Ecuador, I think adrenaline kicked in for a bit, and I got through things and acted pleasant and happy to be there. But something was not right. It wasn’t just being over-tired. I chalked it up to elevation sickness. That was my excuse for waking up several nights while there with sweats, and not being able to make it up flights of stairs due to shortness of breath. We were after all, at 11,800 feet elevation. That’s what it must be. While in the town of Shell, my group took a flight into the jungle to visit a tribe there. We had to get individually weighed pre-flight to figure out cargo and fuel needs on the small 4 seat aircraft. I was shocked to see the scale read 282 lbs. I was the heaviest of my group. It was the last day of the trip, and I resolved to make changes once I returned stateside the following day. I went to work the next morning and while sitting at my desk the same symptoms occurred again. Anxiousness, shortness of breath, and a feeling of dread. I called my wife and asked her to make a doctor’s appointment for me. Something was going on. They wheeled me next door to the hospital after a heart catheterization. The doctor arrived and said that I needed coronary artery bypass graft surgery. I had a 90% blockage in one artery, two 70% blockages, and a 50% blockage. I was in serious danger at the age...

Lose Weight Fast with the 21 Day Fix

Lose Weight Fast with the 21 Day Fix

Jan 19, 2016

By now you’ve probably heard all the hype about Beachbody’s new program, 21 Day Fix. It’s designed to take the guesswork out of losing weight, and helps you learn how to eat clean and get results FAST! Check out Ashleen C., who lost her baby weight fast in just 21 days! I just had a baby and was 6 weeks postpartum when I started the 21 Day Fix. I felt out of shape and my belly felt like total jelly, though, it was for a worthy cause! But I wanted to get my hot body back again fast. I am so short on time now that I have a newborn. I needed a program that took the guesswork out of my food prep, plus had quick but efficient workouts. I proved to myself and everyone around me that it when you want something and you accept no excuses from yourself, that you can get your body back (and then some) after having a baby! I want to inspire all the moms out there that they can do this without sacrificing a lot of time and effort The portion control containers… GENIUS!!!! I thought I was healthy until I got this program. I learned so much about how off balance my food intake was! I got my hot body back at only 9 weeks postpartum!!!!! And I have ABS!!!!! That says it all...
