Happy New Year! Have you made any New Year’s resolutions, maybe to get in shape? I’m here to help you, and I would recommend doing the new Job 1 program. The Job 1 Fitness Program is a 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week program designed to help you focus on your health and fitness no matter how busy you are.

Beachbody’s message with this program is taking care of your health and fitness should be your #1 task. We’ve all heard if you don’t take care of yourself you can’t take care of others.

Beachbody Super Trainer Jennifer Jacobs makes the most of your time with innovative functional training. Three days a week you focus on strength training. There are two cardio days a week, one endurance cardio and one HIIT style. As a former Peloton trainer Jennifer is famous for her work on the bike, so as a bonus Job 1 also includes four 20 minute cycling workouts.

For Job 1 you’ll need resistance loops, dumbbells. The Program includes 20 Strength and Cardio workouts. No two workouts are the same in the entire program. Three days a week you’ll focus on strength training. Each strength workout is structured differently to keep your muscles guessing and your mind engaged. Two days a week focus on cardio. One endurance cardio day and one day of Hight Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) to help you burn fat. Four 20 minute cycling workouts are also included to swap in for cardio days if you’d like. You can use any stationary bike, but  I recommend the new Beachbody MYX Bike.

Now Available! Job 1 – Because Your Health is Not Optional

Be Your Best You in 2022

The challenges of the past couple of years have taught us a lot about perseverance, patience, and gratitude. Now it’s time to take those lessons and use them to start healthy habits so you can conquer your goals.

Even the smallest change, the tiniest baby step forward can snowball into a huge, positive effect on your life.

Here are 12 ways to make 2022 your best year yet!

1. Set a Single-Word Intention
“Intentions are like a declaration we are ready for change,” says Jenna Monaco, certified meditation and mindfulness teacher and stress coach.

Choose a word of the year that speaks to you and come back to it whenever you need inspiration.

2. Take One Tiny Step Every Day
Setting too many goals and setting unrealistic expectations are common mistakes that can sabotage your goals.

Small changes, done regularly, are easier to commit to — and they quickly add up to big changes. “The progress is astounding,” Monaco says.

3. Sip More Water
One of the easiest and most beneficial resolutions you can make is to drink more water. Water plays a vital role in just about everything, from proper cell functioning to healthy digestion to glowing skin. So staying hydrated is key.

4. Shift Your Healthy-Eating Mindset
“Instead of looking for what you should eliminate from your diet, consider taking the opposite approach and searching for things you should add,” says Leah Barron, R.D., L.D., CPT.

Make positive additions, like adding more protein to your plate and increasing your intake of fruits and veggies. Start blending dark leafy greens like spinach and kale into your healthy smoothies.

Try adding some of these vegetarian dishes and vegan meal prep recipes to your weekly meal plan.

5. Get Your Healthy Fats
Healthy fats can help you feel fuller, and research suggests high-quality fats as part of a balanced diet can help with weight management. Look for foods with healthy fats such as avocado, nut butters, and olive oil.

6. Rethink Your Workouts
“Leave behind the idea that every workout has to be high-intensity or full of complicated moves,” Barron says.

If you hit the weights hard or do a killer HIIT workout one day, perhaps go for a hike or a light jog the following one.

7. Prioritize Sleep
It’s tempting to skimp on sleep so you have more time to hustle. But getting enough zzz’s can have a positive impact on your willpower, stress levels, and eating habits.

8. Practice Gratitude
Write down five things you’re grateful for each day.

“Taking the time to notice and acknowledge all the things you are grateful for is one of the most beneficial additions you can make to your day,” Monaco says. “These don’t have to be huge things. In fact, they shouldn’t be. It can be as simple as enjoying a perfect cup of coffee.”

9. Make it a Team Effort
“Find an accountability partner, where you can cheer each other on and check in with one another often,” Monaco says.

When your willpower is waning, it’ll be easier to stick to your resolutions when you know someone else counting on you. That could mean scheduling a Zoom workout or cooking date with a friend or connecting with an online community of people who share similar goals. Message me to join one of my free fitness groups for support and motivation!

10. Be Adaptable
“If 2021 taught us anything, it’s that we have to be adaptable,” Monaco says. “Work with yourself, not against yourself, and you’ll be sure to shine brighter in 2022.”

5 Meal Prep Pointers for Beginners

1. Think about what you want
Planning your meals for the week doesn’t have to be complicated. It might seem a little daunting at first, but it’s surprising how many different meals you can make with just a limited number of ingredients.

2. Check out these resources
Beachbody offers free meal plans that have already done all the heavy lifting for you. Most are five days long, and there are vegetarian meal prepsvegan meal prepsgrain-free meal prepno-cook meal preps, and more. The meal preps are categorized by calorie level, and most include step-by-step instructions and a grocery list.

3. Plan before you shop
If you’re not ready to commit to a full meal prep just yet, keep it simple. LA Life Chef Seth Santoro suggests no-fuss combinations like chicken, brown rice, and broccoli for dinner, and salmon, roasted carrots, and spinach for lunch. To add flavor without calories, stock up on herbs and spices.

Choose recipes with similar ingredients to cut down on meal prep and waste. Seasonal vegetables are also a good source of inspiration.

Once you have your meal-prep recipe list, check your pantry and fridge for ingredients, make a list, and then you can head to the store prepared. 

4. Batch cook staples to use later
Once you’re comfortable meal prepping, Santoro recommends preparing staples — like chicken, salmon, rice, oats, lentils, and yams — in bulk. You’ll return to them again and again, and they can take the longest to cook.

“You can make a pot of rice, use some now for a meal, refrigerate a portion, and freeze a portion to be used later,” he says.

5. Try these time savers

  • Include some no-cook recipes in your meal prep. Snacks like Shakeology and foods that don’t require cooking (like salads and overnight oats) can help save time in the prep process.
  • When prepping, use the oven to cook several things at once. Veggies can generally roast together, and there’s a reason sheet-pan dinners are becoming so popular — no muss, no fuss.
  • Don’t shy away from the Crock-Pot or the Instant Pot. They’re super time-savers — just add ingredients, set, and forget. While it’s doing the work on one recipe, you have time to focus on another.
