February Favorite Things

NOW is the perfect time to refocus on your health if January was a little rough.  Simple swaps can make your body and life just a little better without being overwhelming.  I thought I'd give you a few of my favorite's incase you needed ideas for Valentine's Day.  These would make great gifts for loved one's or a much deserved reward for yourself!

BodyGym is my absolute go-to; not just for my own body, but for all of my clients ages 12 through 85.   I've had the privilege of using BodyGym for over 14 years now.  I witnessed the very first pilot test group and have been watching impressive transformations taking place for people throughout the country ever since.  In over 20 years in the fitness industry, I've never seen anything like this.  I can't name another piece of equipment which is affordable, can be used by any age group, any place, hit every single muscle group, gives you cardio, strength training, flexibility, assisted stretching AND helps drop inches and fat.  I use this in my 4 week challenges and participants drop an average of 7 inches and 5 lbs. It's the last piece of exercise equipment you'll need because you actually use it since you can take it anywhere and use it at anytime you'd like!  In just a few minutes a day you start toning, tightening and you get that endorphin boost that makes you feel great.  You can find it on www.bodygym.com.  An added bonus, if you get yours now you'll be ready to participate in my March BodyGym Slim Down Challenge through Facebook and see your own body transform! This is a gift that keeps on giving!

Cenavi Dark Chocolate Bark & Square Flats are the best treats I've found that help me avoid over-indulging but still make me feel completely satisfied. Besides, what's Valentine's without chocolate?!?!  These were formulated by one of the most recognized and respected chocolatiers in the world. These chocolates have no added sugar, are high in fiber and probiotics and unlike most "no sugar added" chocolates on the market, have no sugar alcohols.

You’ve never tasted a chocolate as healthy and delicious as these. That's exactly why I love them!  They taste like "regular" chocolate! My daughter's thought they were the San Fransisco brand when I first gave them one.  With a healthy lifestyle, I think it's important to still have treats. It helps us be more consistent with our results because we aren't deprived.  I love that people would ever guess these are no-sugar-added or contain healthy probiotics by how delicious they taste!  Look for the Silver Fern graphic on my website and enter the coupon code Mindy10 to get an even greater discount.  Just a bit of advice, if you're buying these as a gift, you definitely want to get a package for yourself!

The BodyJoy Plan is the book of strategies I wrote to help others change their lifestyle without yo-yo dieting or feeling like they're dieting.  It's the inspiration that created my online group training which continues to help people all over the world hit their goal.  It's been rated Book of the Month several times on Amazon and you can read more about under the shop tab on www.mindybuxton.com.  Even if you just follow 2 or 3 of the several strategies, your health and body will improve.  It's a sound go-to since all the weight loss books out there always take something to an extreme.  You won't lose 20 pounds in a week, but you'll never have to release the weight you drop because you do it the right way.  What better gift is there than the gift of health?  

This month as we focus on love and celebrating those we care about, know I'm extremely grateful for my fitness friends.  You're amazing and you continue to inspire me!  Thanks for allowing me in your life.  Here's to a month filled with health, happiness and BodyJoy!  For more tips, recipes, & exercises  follow me on Instagram, Facebook or sign up for my newsletter at www.mindybuxton.com.
