The 14 Day Diet Challenge

November 22, 2013 3 min read

So after getting the 14 Day Daily Hiit Nutrition Guide in my inbox, I thought to myself...what a great opportunity to not only see the effects of a much better diet but to also show the community that it can be done.  Clean eating that is. I'll be completely honest with everyone, my diet is ok.  It's not great and it could definitely use some work getting more veggies in.  I'm also a mom and a wife and my life can get pretty hectic at times and having all of the meals set out for me is amazing.  I don't even have to think. So to start out I am starting November 20th.  Today, the 19th, I've gone to the grocery store and bought absolutely everything I needed for the two weeks.  Yes I know that Thanksgiving is the 28th.  I'm really going to try and not anger my mother-in-law while at the same time keeping it healthy.  Hopefully that will be it for the cheating.  So at the grocery store, City Market/King Soopers (so it's not a super expensive organic store), I spent a total of $163, only buying extra milk and yogurt for my daughter, so take off $10 or so for her.  Honestly most of it is veggies.  And I have a quite a bit of lean beef and chicken in my freezer so I opted not to buy much more meat.

 I tried to get off brand items to demonstrate that eating healthy doesn't mean breaking the bank.  Actually it was a little cheaper than most of my 'normal' shopping trips.

 You can see my daughter's little shock of curly hair at the end of the counter.  It was quite a lot of food.  Also I had quite a bit already in my fridge. So here's what I came back with.  It was a ton of food.  There were some things we just didn't have at the grocery store like summer squash and apricots that I ended up swapping.  Totally ok.  And I went shopping with my daughter.  She's a toddler.  It can be done Moms.  I promise.  I actually love grocery shopping.  Especially when I know I'm getting really good food. So here's my plan.  Today, 19th, I'm going to make all 5 of the meals but double the recipes so that I have food for two days and don't have to worry about cooking.  Actually I'm going to have the same breakfast and it doesn't require cooking so that's one meal off.  I also am allergic to honey so I'm substituting it for agave nectar wherever necessary.  And I just bought bread instead of pitas and whole wheat english muffins.  It's this amazing bread called Dave's Killer Bread.  Its 21 whole grains and whole wheat.  Absolutely fantastic and such a great story behind the bread. Ok so I'm off to cook up some deliciousness.  On December 5th, I will be writing another post about how the 14 days went, what I cheated on, how my body changed, etc.  I am going to be doing Daily Hiit workouts M-F in addition to this. Pretty excited!  Why not join me?  And if you want to get the Nutrition Guide for yourself, click here!   Click here to check out Rachael's personal blog!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
