8 Healthy Eating Tips

Tweet 8 Healthy Eating Tips Ever since I started P90X almost 4 and a half years ago, I have learned so many things about eating healthy. In fact, I have COMPLETELY turned my diet around! Before I started the workout program, my diet consisted of fried chicken fingers, french fries, pizza, ice cream, pop-tarts, cereal, and a lot of white bread and pasta. I was...

Post Ultimate Reset Review

Tweet Post Ultimate Reset Review OK, so many of you are probably wondering, “What in the heck happened with Josh during the Ultimate Reset?” It’s true, I was blogging about it every day for the first few weeks and then BAM, nothing. What went on? You want the truth? I hated it. I mean seriously, I was miserable and despised the whole program. I...

Research Ingredients

Tweet Today I’m all sorts of fired up. I don’t know what it is, I’m in a great mood today, but a little irritated because I have seen so many people and companies lately promote their product as being healthy when in fact it’s not healthy at all. What’s so unfortunate and is making me sick to my stomach is that so many people are...

Indulging on the Weekends

Tweet Ah yes, there’s nothing like the weekends! Time to relax, not work out, and throw a few back with the boys, right? Hold on there, not so fast. If you’re trying to reach a fitness goal, doing these things can easily set you back or really slow down your progress. How do I know? Well, I experienced it first hand after going through my first round...

Ultimate Reset Reviews: Days 9-10

Tweet Ultimate Reset Reviews: Days 9-10 Meat. That’s all I can think about. Seriously. For those of you who don’t know, the Reset requires a vegan diet, and if there is one thing I’ve learned from this program, it’s that I have absolutely NO DESIRE to EVER be vegan! It’s the craziest thing really. For the last few days I’ve...

Ultimate Reset Reviews: Days 7-8

Tweet Ultimate Reset Reviews: Days 7-8 Sunday was Day 7 of the Ultimate Reset, the end of week 1 (thank goodness), and it was another interesting one. Like I mentioned before, my allergies have been getting the best of me lately, and Sunday was no exception. I couldn’t even go outside at first because if I did, I’d be competing for the world record...

Ultimate Reset Review: Days 5-6

Tweet Ultimate Reset Reviews: Days 5-6 Oh man, what can I say, this has been some experience so far. The Ultimate Reset is eating me alive, but I tell you what, it’s really testing my ability to commit to something. I haven’t had to commit to anything like this since I started P90X back in 2008, and even that was easier than this. This is hard, there...

Ultimate Reset Review: Day 4

Tweet Ultimate Reset Review: Day 4 First of all, if you haven’t checked out my Ultimate Reset Review of day 3 yet, just click on the link. OK, so Day 4 was an interesting day for me. When I woke up, my hips were extremely achy, but my legs were a little better than they were the day before. I find it so odd that I am sore like I did an intense leg workout...

Ultimate Reset Review: Day 3

Tweet Ultimate Reset Review: Day 3 As you guys know, Melinda and I are doing the Beachbody Ultimate Reset and are currently on Day 4. I’ve been sharing my Ultimate Reset reviews every day while on this journey, and now it’s time to review day 3. Yesterday was 100X better than Day 2. In case you didn’t read my Ultimate Reset review of day 2,...

Ultimate Reset Review: Day 2

Tweet Beachbody Ultimate Reset Review: Day 2 Yesterday sucked, that’s all there is to it. Like I shared in yesterdays Beachbody Ultimate Reset review, I woke up with a headache, but it got progressively worse throughout the day. It got to the point where my head was pounding, I was extremely sensitive to light and sound, and was even very nauseated....

Ultimate Reset Review: Day 1

Tweet Ultimate Reset Review: Day 1 Oh man, it’s tough to focus on writing this now because the headache I currently have is TERRIBLE, but I’m not going to talk about that right now and give you guys an accurate Ultimate Reset Review of Day 1. So as you know, I started the Beachbody Ultimate Reset yesterday. I decided to do it because I’ve had...

P90X2 Grocery List Banana’s romaine lettuce apples grapefruit tomatoes basil red onion white onion green peppers celery Shumuckers Natural peanut butter (creamy and chunky) whole wheat bread and...

P90X2 Diet

Tweet P90X2 Diet For those of you who don’t know, I started P90X2 last Monday, and so far I’m down 5 lbs! The main reason why I’m seeing such quick results is because I’m following the P90X2 diet 100% and haven’t skipped a workout. When I say following the diet 100%, I mean that I’m using the exact recipes that are in the...

Staying Motivated During the Holidays

Tweet Ah yes, it’s that time of year again. Time for cookies, candy, and a whole lot of weight gain! Wait, what? Yeah, I’m sure you all have heard the stats before, but many people end up gaining quite a few pounds from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Maybe it’s the pumpkin pie, grandma’s old fashioned cooking, or the stress from having to...

Eating Healthy on Thanksgiving

Tweet I don’t think the phrase “eating healthy on Thanksgiving” will be too appealing to most people, but there are some of you out there who are desperately looking to lose weight and plan on staying committed over the holidays. For those of you who are trying hard, you’re definitely going to be tested in a few days when you walk into...

Resisting Temptations on the Weekends!

Tweet Ahh yes, the toughest time to stay committed to your healthy diet and workout routine. The weekends consist of friends pressuring you to go out and have a beer chugging contest, family making it a priority to slowly eat every slice of pizza right in front of your face, and chips and salsa sitting directly on the table in front of you during football games....

It’s OK to Cut Loose!

Tweet Ahh, OK, I think I need to add just a little more to this title. It should read, “It’s OK to Cut Loose Every Once in a While!” Most of you know Melinda and I got married last weekend, and yes, it was an absolutely AMAZING time and we had an unbelievable honeymoon down in the Cayman Islands, but the one thing we didn’t do was worry...

How NOT to Gain Weight on Vacation

Tweet Yes, it is the traveling season, and that means that you can relax and eat all the junk food you want, right? Of course not. Well I guess you can, but if you take that approach you’re going to leave for vacation at one weight and come back about 10 lbs heavier! Don’t think it’s possible? Think again because I’ve personally...

How To Lose the Last 10 Pounds

Tweet Yes, we have all been there, well at least many of us have, and we are always wondering how to lose the last 10 pounds, right? People are so excited to work out, begin working out, get pretty good results, but for some reason those last few pounds just don’t want to come off! Why is this happening to me? I’m committing myself 100% to BOTH the...

8 Tips for Starting P90X

Tweet P90X has literally been my program of choice for the past 3 years, so I guess that would sort of make me a P90X expert, right? Regardless if I’m a self proclaimed “P90X Expert” or not, I’ve had some pretty amazing results, losing 25 lbs and 10% body fat within my first 90 days, so I know exactly what it takes to maximize your...

Eating Healthy on Vacation

Tweet Most of you know that Melinda and I just got back from a 5 day trip down to Myrtle Beach, and usually I would be posting that I need to get recommitted from slacking some on the diet and workouts, but not this time. No, I decided that I was going to eat 100% healthy and work out every day, regardless of how tough it would be, and believe me, it was tough!...

Whole Wheat Pizza Crust Recipe

Tweet I can’t take credit for this one because it’s one I found on the Team Beachbody site, but it sure does look excellent, and one I will be trying out very soon! Whole Wheat Pizza Crust 1 cup whole wheat flour 1 1/4 cup rolled oats 1/4 cup cornmeal 2/3 cup skim milk 1/4 cup olive oil 1 tsp. baking powder Pizza toppings (your choice) Optional:...

Can I Have a Cheat Meal?

Tweet Throughout the course of over 3 years of doing P90X and other various Beachbody programs, I have learned what works and doesn’t work for me in terms of the diet, and at first, I thought that having a cheat meal was like disobeying your parents, but as I progress through my fitness career, I am learning how many times I can cheat on my diet and not be...

Asylum Diet Review

Tweet Now that I’m back from vacation and settled in, I’m getting close to starting the Insanity Asylum diet again. I say getting close because I’m still a little stuck in vacation mode, and not quite ready to go back to the extreme workouts and strict diet quite yet, but it will be soon, I promise. I’ve got the Beachbody Coach Summit...

Benefits of Avocado

Tweet For the past 3 years, I have been hearing quite a bit about avocado, but never gave it a try because to be honest with you, it just sounds and looks gross. I kept hearing so much about how Tony Horton, the creator of P90X, eats a ton of avocado, and then recently that Shaun T eats avocado at just about every meal. When you hear that two incredibly ripped...

Customized Meal Planner

Apr 13, 2011

Tweet When I was going through my first round of P90X, the thing that I had the toughest time with, which I’m pretty sure everyone struggles with at first, is the diet. I was so accustomed to eating crappy food every day, and to go from doing that to 100% clean eating is tough. The toughest part about it was knowing what was healthy, what exactly to eat,...

Should I Work Out On Vacation?

Tweet The main reason that I’m writing this post is because I didn’t do so hot on my diet or workouts while on a cruise a few weeks back. I think that’s putting it a little too lightly, so let me rephrase. I completely and utterly destroyed my diet and slacked on the workouts while on the cruise a few weeks back, so bad that I ended up gaining...

Benefits of Green Tea

Tweet For the past few months, Melinda and I have been drinking green tea every night before heading to bed. Don’t ask me why we’ve started doing this because I have no idea, but maybe because of the many health benefits we have heard that are associated with green tea. Whatever the reason we got on this kick, we have been doing it, so I’ve...

Fat Burning Routine

Tweet Whenever I’m trying to get ready to go on vacation, preparing for a Beachbody Event, or just looking to lose some body fat fairly quickly, I have a certain fat burning routine that I follow. After experimenting for a few years, this routine is what I have found works the best for my body, but keep in mind that even though this works for me, it might...

Diet Tips for Eating Out

Tweet We all know how tough it can be to eat healthy while eating out, especially if we are really watching what we eat and following a strict diet like the P90X Nutrition Guide. Restaurants suck anymore, and even the healthy stuff isn’t all that healthy. It’s almost like they try to trick you into thinking it’s healthy so that you will still...
