F2FHQ 065 - Our Big Plans for Holiday Fitness Success

Holidays!  No problem... you just need a plan.  Zack and Carol discuss several ideas to put these next several weeks in perspective.  You don't have to be miserable, deny yourself everything OR give in and give up either.  Join your hosts as they discuss how you can indulge and stay on track... for the most part.

Welcome to the Fat2FitHQ podcast. I’m your co-host, Zack Carlson from TheGunBench.com and along with me is your host, Carol Salva of the Firearms Radio Network.  In this podcast we are chronicling our journeys from Fat to Fit.  We talk about pursuing a healthier lifestyle not only in diet, but in all areas of life.

THANK YOU Firearms Radio Network for sponsoring the bandwidth of this show!


Zack: Took a few more supplements.  Didn't feel much different but have not taken them with consistency.

Carol: Wrote a blog post about community for Firearms Insider.  She also wrote an article as the Healthy Lifestyles Coach for her kids’ elementary.  Interviewed Jeremy from WeLikeShooting.  Went on the road for 5 days… eating was a challenge.  But she had a plan!

TOPIC:  Zack’s Back on board!  What is his plan?  How can we help?  Did he watch Jonathan Bailor?

Laura H: Hi guys.  I heard you talking recently about Fitbit.  I\'m a Fibit user, love it and wanted to pass along a cool thing you can do with it.

Carol, if you need another reason to buy one, check this out: http://earnd.it/13ILptp.  You can sync your Fitbit account with Earndit which allows you to earn credits based on how much activity you do and you can use those credits towards some cool rewards.  You can also join Challenges, where along with encouraging you to be active, your name is entered into a drawing to win some awesome prizes. What a great way to give you an incentive to be more active and think of all the credits you would earn during your Tough Mudder!

Keep up the great work you guys are doing!  You are so inspirational!
