Week 4: MAKING NOISE in Michigan

T2S - K and C - Back of Bus-5

“Music is a world within itself, with a language we all understand.” – Stevie Wonder

Welcome to week FOUR of TOUR to SUMMER!

We’re making noise in Michigan, birthplace of Stevie Wonder, and we’re making this a Stevie WONDERful week! We’re so inspired by your #poundtour check-ins and feel like we’ve gotten to know so many of you over the past three weeks — thank you for sharing with us!

We just wanted to take a moment to encourage you to connect with us and each other on social media! This week is a WONDERful one — and the most wonderful part of our day is sitting down to go through your posts and see your TOUR to SUMMER check ins! We love connecting with our POUND POSSE around the world and getting inspired by YOUR journey.

 

Along the POUND Tour (and even after it!) we’ll always *double tap* and leave you some cute emojis or bits of encouragement when you tag us and use our POUND hashtags in your photos! Maybe you’re wondering if it’s really us behind the other side of the phone.. and the answer is YES!

Need some posting ideas? Search #poundtour on Instagram and check out what your fellow Tourmates are posting! We love to see your #balancedeats, your sweaty #poundselfies after you workout with your ROCKOUT RESULTS System, quotes or pictures that keep you motivated, and (obviously) any picture with Ripstix! We’re all over Facebook and Twitter too!

 

Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and keep checking in each day!

Let us know what YOU like and what you want to see us post! :)

POUND Tour Love,
The POUND Girls

Breakfast On The Go: Overnight Oats

Grab some breakfast on the go -- and prep these overnight oats the night before! Super easy Tour To Summer tip!

We have heard from so many of you that having enough time or energy for breakfast is a struggle… so we want to give you a breakfast recipe that you can PREP the night before! Overnight oats are becoming a popular breakfast item and you’ll see why when you whip these up! They’re easier than a bowl of cereal, tastier than a granola bar, and waaaay healthier than a Starbucks spinach-feta wrap ;) (more…)

Week 3: Headed To Texas

Headed to Texas during Tour To Summer with us? Get some motivation here.Week 3 has arrived and, as we head to the Lone Star State of Texas, we can’t help but be inspired by the one-and-only Janis Joplin. Janis was born in Texas and became one of the most iconic female performers of all time. She was sharp as a tack, incredibly interesting and an ELECTRIC performer. If you ever have some extra time, check out a few of her interviews and let yourself get inspired by her frank and humorous wisdom. She defied the odds, rebelled against social norms, and MADE NOISE!!

Of all the incredible things that Janis has said, there’s one that sticks out the most:

“Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got”

This quote speaks to us on many levels and as we head into the third week of tour, we want to send you a little bit of tough love. (Take a deep breath). (more…)

Good Sore vs Bad Sore

TGIF POUND POSSE!!

By now, you’ve been POUNDing your hearts out and Hitting the Streets for two weeks straight and we’re guessing your muscles are feeling it, right? Believe it or not, we still get so sore from POUNDing — and we wanted to give you a brief explanation as to why you might be feeling soreness and how you can modify to keep your muscles safe as we get into the thick of Tour.

We love seeing your tweets about post-POUND soreness — everything from rolling down the stairs to not being able to sit on the toilet! Even though we can laugh about it, it’s important to check in with our bodies along the way to stay safe, healthy and ready to tackle the #poundtour ahead!

Many people measure the efficacy of their workout by how sore they feel the next day (or two days later). This is common but not completely accurate. Just like many other things in life, there are two kinds of sore: Good and Bad. (more…)

Natural Born Fillers

Fill yourself up with these natural born filling snack choices! The curse of the un-full-filling snack is OVER!

We’ve whipped up six brand new snack recipes just for our Tour To Summer Crew! With snacks, we find that once you start, it’s hard to stop. Most don’t fill us up for more than half an hour – so we searched for the most filling snack items out there so we could share them with you. Get inspired, mix it up and try a few this week! (more…)

Mini Decisions That Move Mountains

Mini Decisions that Move Mountains -- on the blog! :)

Welcome to Day 10 POUND POSSE!

You’ve made it over the 7 day hump and are well on your way to new habits and a happy lifestyle. We’re so incredibly inspired by all of your posts! Your sweaty #POUNDselfies are the BEST and your #balancedeats are making us hungry over here! ;)

Today, we want to pass along some of the greatest advice that we’ve ever received. Someone once told us that in order to set your life in the direction you want it to go in, you have to make decisions. If you look back at the times you’ve felt stuck, you might also notice that it was around the same time that you stopped making decisions. Perhaps you were in a fitness rut, stuck at a job that you didn’t enjoy or maybe even in an unhealthy relationship. Without decision making, you’re more prone to letting things happen to you, rather than making things happen.

If we stop making decisions, we stop growing – we stop moving forward.

Week 2: The Windy Road To Washington

Jump on the windy road to Washington this week on Tour To Summer!Congratulations! You’ve hit the seven day mark! This is a huge milestone on POUND Tour to Summer and you should be very proud! The next stop on our virtual Tour To Summer is Seattle, Washington, home of the legendary Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix was arguably one of the most influential electric guitarists in rock history and it’s hard to not fall in love with his music, his passion, his stage presence and most of all – his spirit. One of his most famous quotes inspired our theme this week: “In order to change the world, you have to get your mind right first”  Your mindset influences all of your decisions, your intentions, and ultimately, your evolution as a person.

Let that sink in for a moment.

When you start a fitness challenge and change the way you’re using or feeding your body, you’ll feel the changes immediately… but they might not be what you expected. You might feel fatigued, brain fog, bloating or headaches. Believe it or not, these are all good things! Your body is and expelling all the toxins that built up over the months or years of unbalanced eating and/or sporadic exercise. It means that your balanced eating and POUNDing is WORKING!

The way your body feels is a huge factor in your journey – but like Jimi said, your MIND plays the biggest role in your success. Did you know that it takes 21 days to solidify a new habit? And that once you do, your brain is much more likely to go into auto-pilot, making all of the good decisions for you. Your Tour To Summer journey was built to kick-start healthy habits that last a lifetime. Together we’ll release old patterns and introduce a new way of life. (more…)

How Will You Hit The Streets?

How will you Hit The Streets?! Hit the Street means any 30 minute cardio on Tour To Summer!Tomorrow is your first Hit The Streets! Wahoo! Ok, now you’re probably looking at your Tour Calendar thinking what the heck is a “Hit The Streets“?

Hit the Streets is the one workout on your calendar that is not found inside the POUND ROCKOUT RESULTS SYSTEM. Hit the Streets is any type of moderate to high level fat-burning cardio spanning a duration of 30 minutes or more. It includes dancing, hiking, biking, and any cardio or conditioning group fitness class.

30 Minutes of cardio will boost your cardiovascular endurance, improve heart health and  burn calories. And just like POUND, it helps release endorphins that can improve mood and ease stress! (more…)

Morning Routines: Throwing Yourself Out Of The Nest

Create healthy morning routines -- including this Metaba-Boost! Made just for you for Tour To Summer!

One of our favorite writers said, “To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest.”

In a way, we kind of view each day like this. Taking risks and putting yourself in uncomfortable situations are ways of jumping the nest, but you can also symbolically do the same thing each morning. From the moment we wake, our minds start racing. Some days we wake happy, some we wake sad. The important thing to remember is that we have the choice and the ability to make our own decisions and change the course of our day. Each day, we get to throw ourselves out of the nest and start anew.

Whether you wake up with an alarm that reminds you of how awesome you are, or you save time for a quiet cup of tea, morning routines can influence a day of good habits and positive attitudes. It’s really important to create morning routines that work for you. We’ve found that one good decision often times leads to many, many more. (more…)
