My Journey: A quick update!

I’ve been MIA with my updates, and I apologize for that.

I did fall off the wagon a bit with my food, but my training has been on par.

This past Monday I decided I needed to nip my nutrition in the bud and joined 20 other clients in my Train Like A Girl 6 week Clean & Lean Reboot.

For 6 weeks the goal is to not only train consistently but eat ONLY real food. That means nothing processed and nothing that comes from a box and/or bag.

And in just 4 days, Monday morning to this morning (Friday), I am AMAZED with the results!!!

I mean I am a big believer of only eating whole, real food and that is what I teach and coach to my clients, but sometimes I do forget how much of a difference it can be when taking out all processed foods.

The biggest difference I see is in my most difficult area to lose from, and for most women, and that is the lower abdominal area. Processed foods just make me bloat like no other!

I have not stepped on the scale and I don’t plan to. Pictures are a better way of showing results.

I am excited to see what my results will be in the next 5 weeks!

Hey everyone, Kori with Train Like A Girl.

So today I'm going to show you a very simple workout you can do either at home or on vacation in a hotel with a TRX Suspension Trainer.

Now if you don't have one, no worries I'll put a link in the description below so you can click on all click on it and see what they're all about. But I love these. They are super simple and you can put them in your suitcase if need be.

Now I have mine attached to our rig, but no worries there if you don't have anything to attach it like I have it. You can actually buy a little contraption that fits into your door and it shows you exactly how to use it.

So let's get to it!

The workouts gonna consist of five different exercises. You're gonna do each exercise for 30 seconds then rest for 30 seconds a total of four rounds or 20 minutes super simple.

So for exercise number one we're gonna do is a TRX squat. You're gonna walk back, abs are tight. Hold on to the handles. Nice deep squat drive through the heel stand up. You really don't want to use your arms to pull yourself up you're just using it to hold on.

Exercise 2 is TRX rows. I love these because they're great for pulling those shoulders back and make it a nice well-defined back. Let yourself fall away from the TRX, abs are tight, butt is tight We're gonna squeeze those blades as we pull our elbows down and back. You want to make sure you're not letting yourself fall back but controlling yourself all the way down.

Exercise 3 is the TRX pushup. I'm going to turn myself away from where the TRX is fastened to. Up on our toes, abs are tight, butt is tight and arms straight out in front of us. Come down push yourselves up. Come down push ourselves up. Keep those elbows nice and tight to the body. If where your feet are located It's a little too hard take a small step forward. It'll make it a little bit easier.

Exercise number 4 TRX hamstring curls. You're going to place your feet into the straps, lie down on your back and keep your butt tight. Lift those hips up bring those heels to your butt make sure those hips do not drop every time you curl in.

Exercise number 5 TRX plank crunches, we're gonna place our feet the tops of our feet into he straps. Push up on to your hands into a push-up plank position, abs are tight, butt is tight and knees into the chest.

Those are the five exercises. Again, you're gonna do each exercise 30 seconds of work 30 seconds of rest, go through it four times twenty minutes. If you want to make it a little bit longer.

go through it five, six times. But I promise you you're gonna have a great great workout. I'm already kind of losing my breath.

VIDEO: Your Green Smoothie Might Be Why You Are Gaining Weight!

Believe it or not even though your green smoothies can be very healthy. They could also be the reason why you're gaining weight!


Hey, everyone Kori with Train Like A Girl here where I help busy moms lose up to 15 pounds in six weeks without spending hours in the gym or restrictive fad diets.

Before I get started into how you green smoothie could be the reason why you're gaining weight I want to ask them if you like this video and the information in it to make sure you hit the subscribe button below so that you get all the latest information on fitness and nutrition.

So let's get to it!

Everyone knows that green smoothies can be a healthy and great way to get not only a meal in but all your veggies for that one day in. But just as they can be super healthy, they can also pack a lot of calories in just one shake.

So how do we stop that from happening?

It's all about the steps you take in making that that smoothie.

When I make my smoothies I always start off with with the liquid. Most of time I use water but I do use sometimes almond milk or cashew milk.

Next I move on to the veggies. You can't go wrong with with spinach. And then I also throw in some carrots just to get some extra vitamins and nutrients.

Next I knew my protein powder. Now if you're not big on protein powder or you don't want to use it, that's perfectly fine.

After that, I put in my my fruit. I tend to go with bananas because it makes a little bit more creamy and frozen berries to also get that sweetness and to give it the consistency I want for the smoothie.

And then last but not least. I you I added my fats or extra add-ins. Now this is where it gets tricky and this is where a lot of the calories can add up very fast. So when you're adding in your fats or other extras, you want to make sure that you limit it to one.

Sometimes do about a quarter to a half of an avocado or 1 to 2 teaspoons of chia seeds depending on the day. You can also use nut butters or something of that sort, but this is where you want to make sure you don't add in too much.

I've seen it time and time, I've done it time and time again to many adding too many high-calorie ingredients to your healthy green smoothie and before you know it it you you end up with a smoothie that's a 1000, 1500 or even 2,000 calories.

That's a lot!

I mean I get it there's there healthy foods, right? Some of them are even considered super-foods. We have to remember even these healthy super foods contain calories and a lot of them in such a small serving.

So you need to watch out how much you put in.

Again, I suggest one either fat or extra add ins.

Hope this helps when you're making your green smoothies, but if you want a simple way to make sure your green smoothies don't contribute to you gaining weight, make sure you download my Train Like A Girl Clean & Lean Shake Guide.

In it I go step by step on how to make your smoothies and everything that you need to put in it to make sure you're getting a great nutritious healthy smoothie but not putting so much into it that you have a full day's worth of calories in one shake.

VIDEO - What should I eat BEFORE training???

This is a question I get a lot from moms and women who want to train but are either scared to eat before training or just don’t know what to eat before training.

Check out my video below to find out the answer to what to eat BEFORE you train!!


So this is the biggest question, believe it or not, I get about nutrition.

Hey everyone Kori with Train Like A Girl here where I help busy moms was up to 15 pounds of six weeks without spending hours in the gym or going on any restrictive fad diets.

So before we get started with one of the biggest questions that I get about nutrition, I want to ask if you like this video and then the information in it to make sure you hit the subscribe button below. This way you will get all the latest latest training information on nutrition and fitness.

So the biggest question I get about nutrition is What do I eat before I train?

There is a lot of information out there and a lot of people want to make it seem like it's so complicated. You know, you should eat this amount, you know X amount of minutes before you train. Then you have to eat this and you have to eat that. It's not really that complicated.

It's not complicated at all.

So what should you eat?

Whatever meal is planned that day before your training session.

So if you if you're planning out your week and you plan what you are going to have for lunch and you are going to be training mid-afternoon and lunch. You know that you're gonna have you know Chicken salad, and you know an apple then that's what you have.

A lot of people want to make it seem so complicated that you have to have all these ingredients. But really you just need to have fuel.

So one of the things that I always tell people all my clients is pick your lean protein and pick your veggie and if you want some fruit in there. That's perfectly fine. But The lean protein and the veggie. Those are the two things that you want.

Now if you're training first thing in the morning, the last thing you want to do is try to get up extra early to get in a meal. So I always tell my clients pick something that you know is gonna sit well in your stomach but also get you through your training session. I also make want to make sure that they have a great dinner beforehand especially if you're training about five six o'clock in the morning.

So now along with “What should I eat before I train?” I also get the question is well how far in advance do I need or what's the time between eating and training?

Simple answer... Whatever works for you.

I know people who can eat a six-course meal get up from that table and go have an intense training session.

That is not me.

I know people that need at least two hours between eating and training.

I myself about one hour to one and a half hours. Depending on what my training is.

But I will say try not to go more than two and a half hours between eating your meal and training.

So I hope this helps when you're planning your your meals for next week or and so on and your meals before your training.

I would love to know what do you eat before you train?

So make sure you comment below and tell me also make sure you watch out for the Video for next week is what should I eat After I train?
