Losing weight while breastfeeding- Yes it is possible!

Posted by on Oct 23, 2016 in News & Specials | 1 comment

      I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE EASY TO LOSE WEIGHT WHILE BREASTFEEDING… BUT I WAS WRONG I’m a single full time working mom with a baby and a 4 year old. I wanted more than anything to breastfeed my baby. I had many obstacles stacked against me, but I found resources and people that helped me stick to it. I wanted to quit a few times, but I stuck with it and I know my baby is better off for it. I’ve nursed for 9.5 months, and I have the happiest baby on the planet! I wanted to write this blog to help others in their breastfeeding journey. I always heard that breastfeeding burns a ton of calories, so naturally I should just shed the weight after having the baby with no problem right? WRONG! I am a certified fitness instructor who was in great shape before having my baby. I experienced some major stressful situations during and after the pregnancy and gained 60 lbs. However, being knowledgeable about nutrition and exercise… combined with the fact that breastfeeding burns a ton of calories, I thought it would be easy to drop the weight. What happened? I became a wild beast ready to snatch any food item that crossed my path. I was shoving my face full of food while nursing, and at night…forget about it, the ice cream container didn’t stand a chance. I was eating WAY more than I was burning, and I had trouble finding time to get any workouts in, and when I did I felt like my baby didn’t like the milk after I was done with a workout. I want to share my journey with you, and tell you how I stuck with it (after multiple times of wanting to give up) and let you know about the various resources out there that can help you. The Stress We all know that stress combined with lack of sleep can wreck havoc on our bodies. My personal experience is  that I started to get a divorce 2 days after I found out I was pregnant. I ended up moving into a new house, having the baby and getting the divorce finalized all within a month of each other. I now had a new baby, a 4 year old who just went through a bunch of change, I had no family that lives by me, and I had to get prepared to go back to work as a single mom within 12 weeks. All I wanted was to provide the best for my children and be the best mom I could possibly be. I couldn’t do it alone. That is where I reached out for help, and searched the end of the internet for all possible solutions to help me through my journey. We all have different stories. Some of us work, some don’t...

Posted by on Feb 1, 2015 in News & Specials | 0 comments

  30 Day Free Weight Loss Guide Nutritional choices are a KEY part of any weight loss program. Think of Nutrition as the foundation, and my workout DVDs as the sculpting tool. This 10 Step Guide is a quick start to eating right, so that you can really get the most benefit from my workouts. This guide is intended to get you started FAST without having to read through tons of material, follow complex recipes, or count a bunch of calories. I’m a busy mom, and I know what is like to be pressed for time. I realize that one of the biggest hurdles to weight loss is TIME! With less time, we tend to sometimes make poor choices with diet, and workout less. I’m here to help! I am not a nutritionist, nor do I claim to be. I am going to share with you my personal top 10 secrets to losing the weight and keeping it off. You can take this guide and get started today. However, After reading the guide below, If you’re interested in learning more, and need to know exactly what to eat to lose fat the natural way – without supplements, without drugs and without slowing down your metabolism – while also learning the why behind it all, this is one of the best books I’ve personally read that explains it all in a way that is easy to understand: www.burnthefat.com by Tom Venuto. Exercise is the other 20% and will tone and define your body. For a great deal on my workouts (3 DVDs + a Free 30 day jump start Workout Schedule) go to workoutwithangie.com           Lets get started! 1.Think of Weight loss as a side-effect of getting healthy! When I actually sat down and listed the top priorities in my life, here is what they were: My Family My Health My Career You can see that ‘weight loss’ isn’t a priority…but it is! It is actually a side effect of being healthy. If I’m not healthy then it doesn’t matter if I’m skinny or not. If you can mentally train yourself to put your health before weight loss, you will automatically find yourself making healthier choices and it won’t seem as big of a sacrifice. If you are just focused on weight loss, you are only focused on the negative aspects. “I can’t eat the brownie because it will make me gain weight, and I will feel guilty”. Then, you are really going to focus on that brownie. If you can switch your mind to say “What is better for me, an apple or a brownie? The apple will give me energy, supply me with added nutrients, it still will taste sweet AND I can get some extra fiber”. The choice might be a lot easier. You want to think of food as providing a purpose,...

Best Workout DVDs that Burn Fat and Blast Calories!

Posted by on Jan 1, 2015 in News & Specials | 0 comments

Lose Weight, Get Toned Arms & Legs, and Have Fun Doing It! I’m going to introduce you to some of the best home workout videos. The DVDs are from different instructors (yes, I’m promoting my competition!) Why? Because working out to the SAME instructor, regardless of how great they are, can cause you to hit a plateau. These instructors are some of my personal favorites, and deliver incredible results. In order to change our body, we need to challenge it. Below you will find some of the best exercise DVDs on the market that do just that! Best Exercise Videos for Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Go to Beginner/Intermediate Workouts Go to Advanced/Intermediate Workouts Tips for Weight Loss You MUST do cardio and weights. If you are a cardio junkie, you will become a smaller version of yourself, but you will not get toned. You absolutely must do both. Alternate body parts. You don’t want to  over-work the same muscles two days in a row. You have to follow a healthy life-style eating plan with the 80/20 rule. 80% of the time eat clean and 20% or less you can cheat See the checklist below to see if these workouts are good for you If you currently enjoy DVDs from some of TVs favorite stars, you will love these workouts. These DVDs are created by certified fitness professionals. You are a big fan or super high intensity workouts, but have become bored with your current DVDs, then these will be a great change to your workout routine. You love interval and circuit training. You are any fitness level (beginner, intermediate or advanced) then these workouts will be a challenge (I will break them down into categories for you). You are ready to challenge your body and take it to the next level. Below is a list of some of my favorite workouts of all times, along with a description of why I love it. In addition, I’ll show you a sample workout routine that utilizes all the DVDs.  Beginner-Intermediate   **Note that the instructors listed below are in no way compensated for these reviews. These are videos that I love to do, and are some of my favorite instructors who I feel are the best in the industry. Advanced exercisers can also use the DVDs mentioned below. I have them as part of the beginner suggestion since the DVDs offer low intensity modifications, and contain exercises that I feel beginners can start with and increase their resistance as they become stronger. DVD Features:    Angie Gorr Type: Cardio and Weights Equipment needed: Light/Med weights and a mat (step optional)  3 different levels of intensity for every move(beginners use level 1) Low-impact modifications Short segments (each segment is 5-10 min long) or option of a long 60 min workout Menu allows you to select your own exercises Incredible Arm Exercises!

My Favorite Fat Loss Book that Delivers Results!

Posted by on Jun 1, 2014 in News & Specials | 0 comments

Have you ever told yourself there is muscle behind that fat but you just can’t find it? If so, this book is for you! I have personally read this book and applied the lessons learned, and have achieved great results. There is so much conflicting information out there and what to and not to eat, and how to best achieve fat loss. This is one of my favorite diet/exercise books I have read. What I love about this book, is that Tom Venuto explains Why you get results, and actually spends some time explaining the science behind it. The book is easy to read and understand, but knowing Why you have to do something, and really understanding the reasons behind it makes a big difference in giving you the ability to apply the knowledge to every day life. The other thing I love about this book is that is shows you how to burn fat the natural way, without supplements and starvation diets. I have always said that weight loss is a side effect of being healthy, and this book focuses on burning fat the healthy way. My favorite part is the explanation of why starvation diets don’t work, and the explanation on how much to eat based on your metabolism (which varies by individual). This book shows you how to analyze how many calories you burn, so you know how much to eat to reach your goals. You will learn how to: Strip off belly fat – both the dangerous “visceral fat” and the ugly stuff below your skin (subcutaneous fat) Lose the last 10-15 pounds of stubborn fat (women: hips, butt, thighs, triceps… Men: lower abs, love handles and even “man boobs”) Prepare for a fitness, figure or bodybuilding contest, if you choose (do it for fun, or get serious and learn how to eat your competition alive!) Gain lean muscle – just a little “tone” or actually add some size, if you want it Increase your strength – overall strength, strength in specific lifts or everyday “functional strength”… and… Achieve optimal health at the same time; reduce your blood pressure and cholesterol, lower your disease risk, improve bone density and manage your blood sugar. Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle By Tom Venuto Burn The Fat, Feed The Muscle, The #1 best-selling diet ebook on the Internet (as rated by clickbank.com), is completely unique and different from other programs on the diet market because it’s not a weight loss program – it’s a fat loss program. Once you’ve read just the first three chapters, there will be no doubt in your mind that pursuing weight loss is not only the wrong goal, it may be the reason why you’ve failed to reach and maintain your ideal body weight Burn The fat shows you exactly why it’s fat you must lose, not weight, why you cannot succeed...

The Best Diet Program out There

Posted by on May 24, 2014 in News & Specials | 0 comments

Are you confused with all the diet programs and which one is best for you? I’m here to offer you a great solution. I’ve searched high and low for the best diet/nutrition programs out there and I found it! Either check out this site right now, or continue reading to find out more: Look no further. EVERY article you read contradicts the article you just read when it comes to diet and exercise. One article you read says, don’t eat eggs, then you find out they are good for you and have Omega 3’s and don’t affect cholesterol at all. This can be VERY confusing. Did you know that Diet is 75-80% of the secret to weight loss and exercise is 20-25% of the rest? Yes, you can lose weight by doing just either, but the BEST method is to do both diet and exercise. We have also all learned that diets don’t really work. What I mean, is that a diet is considered temporary. Therefore, if you restrict your calories, you lose weight. Then what happens when you off the diet? You gain the weight back and then some! The key, and really the true key to losing weight and keeping it off is a lifestyle change. How to go about a lifestyle change is very difficult, and so many people don’t even know where to begin. Did you know that I used to drink 5-6 sodas a day during collage! YIKES! Now I drink maybe 1 soda per year. I just never drink it, and in fact I don’t WANT it! That is the key. Trying to imagine your eating habits now filled with a lifestyle of only eating veggies and Quinoa can become very unsettling and undesirable my most Americans. We are trained to eat brownies, cookies, nachos, and whatever else we have at our finger tips, and we are trained to like it! Our bodies love ‘quick fixes’ and we LOVE sugar. With the Beyond diet program, you can get EXCELLENT recipes and food that tastes great, but is also HEALTHY! Here is the truth, the REAL truth. I’ve said it 1 million times before, and just keep repeating it. Think of weight loss as a side effect of becoming healthy. If we are healthy, we are going to exercise more and crave healthier foods. By being healthy, the weight will just come off naturally. Now, saying and doing are two separate things. So many people still go on ‘diets’. If you really want to lose weight, become healthier and have more energy, you must make a life style change. Doing that; however, is easier said than done. I found a site that I really believe in. This site is called beyond diet. The reason it is BEYOND diet is that it is more than just a diet program, but a way to help and...
