Official Truth Teller Mystery Blog Tour from MG Author Kurt Chambers

This has got to be one of the most exciting times for any writer when they go on tour with their debut novel. And it’s no exception for me as my tour is now underway for my debut MG novel, Truth Teller. In each of the blog tour posts, I offer every reader a chance of winning a free copy of my book. All you have to do is read the article, make a comment, and share the post on Facebook or Twitter. How easy is that? I would love you to win a free copy of my story, so please, come and leave your comments. There's still plenty of time. The more blogs you comment on, the more chance you have of winning.

Here is where my tour has taken me so far…

MG Book Review: From Dutch Hill Girl - Annie is a legend with her book reviews, and she was kind enough to review my book for this tour.

Guest Author K. Chambers: From T.F. Walsh – Tania has taken my tour all the way down under to Australia. Watch out for her, she is a soon to be author herself.

The Next Big Thing for MG Readers: From Ralene Burke, Author – Ralene has just landed a job as editor for Wives in Bloom, but has taken time out today to join the tour. How great are my friends?

I have other plans for my tour, but I don’t want to be boring and just post a list like everyone else seems to be doing. I thought it would be more fun to make it a mystery tour. Who knows where I will pop up next! Haha!!

  1. Insanity Upper Body Weight Training is a useful exercise. Using dumbbells, start out with a chest press with your legs at ~6 inches off the ground. As you press the weight up you will also be raising your legs, keeping them straight, at the same time. DO NOT raise your legs so that they come straight up to a 90° angle. The goal here is to always to have pressure on your abdominal muscles throughout the whole exercise. Each press and lift is one rep.
    Bent Over Rows / Flys – Start out in a flat back, knees bent, bent over position and dumbbells in both hands. Start to “row” meaning if your arms are hanging down to the ground in your bent over position, use your back muscle to bring the dumbbells to your sides, then back to position number one. Next “fly” the dumbbells just as you did earlier outwards to shoulder height, and then return to position number one. This is one rep.
    Ski Abs – And yet another exercise that we have done 1000’s of times.
    Round #2 – 10 reps.
    Chest Press Leg Raise
    Bent Over Rows
    Ski Abs
    Round #3 – 8 reps.
    Chest Press Leg Raise
    Bent Over Rows
    Ski Abs – After your eight go for extra credit!
    Cool Down Stretch.
    This is the last of all the Insanity DVD’s in the box set. Overall this is a solid workout and a good beginner’s guide to weightlifting if you have never lifted before. There is not much I would have changed for this set, as it hits all the major Upper body muscle groups. I only wish that Beachbody would have included a Lower Body Weight Training exercise; this would have really given the Insanity the mirror spit polished shine of an already great series

    One major development since we originally wrote this post was the introduction of Shakeology to the Beachbody line of supplements. Shakeology was not originally included in the P90X diet plan, because the diet plan predates Shakeology. Shakeology is hard to define in the P90X Nutrition Plan. At 140 calories with 15g of protein and 19g of carbs (Greenberry) or 17g of protein and 17g of carbs (Chocolate) it is not really a full serving of either. With Beachbody’s advice, we have characterized it as a snack. Note that if you add items into the shake and increase the calories, it can easily be a double snack, rather than a single snack. Most people like to add fruit to the greenberry and things like almond butter and bananas to the chocolate. If you do that, take a minute and look up the caloric and macronutrient (protein/fat/carb) values of your additions and track them accordingly. It’s really easy to change the macronutrient profile of Shakeology and make it a higher carb, higher glycemic index food if you add a bunch of orange juice, for example. We typically use almond butter and almond milk with the chocolate, which keeps the carb count down while adding extra healthy fats that keep the body satisfied longer. We have updated the Excel document below to reflect this change. If you have questions about how to track things in the P90X Nutrition Plan, please Contact Us.

    The huge feature of P90x and it can’t be ignored. If you fail to eat the proper foods you will not only feel like crap, you will end up not getting the results you were expecting. The nutritional guide P90x provides you with is a great guidance tool.
    For me the number one thing was finding a balance with my Protein Powder and Protein Bars. Everything else seemed to fall into place. Prepping meal a day in advanced was helpful, but all in all it was difficult to follow the P90x nutrition guide like you are supposed too. Modify is key and taking in the correct amount of calories is important. Avoiding the heavy snacks will do wonders for you as well. If you can eat 5 simple meals throughout the day you should have no problem with the correct intake. If you are on the road a lot, you will really need to dig down with your food thoughts.
