Have a good day.

Bad days happen all the time but a bad day doesn’t mean you have a bad life.

Let go of the past, lift your thoughts to today.

Today is a good day to have a good day….even if yesterday sucked.

Workout Wednesday: PiYo

I’m tired.
My hamstring hurts.
I’m tired.
I don’t wanna workout. 
I’m tired.

But instead of thinking about all of my excuses I replaced them with effort.

I even got lucky and had my girls join me in the workout. Phoebe loves to do PiYo and Winnie and Dixie love to be playful.

Get up and WORKOUT!!

Get up and workout before your brain realizes what you’re doing!

–> You’ll have more energy all day!
–> If you wait until later in the day you might skip it.
–> Its easier to fight excuses early because they’re still half asleep!
–> It’s one less thing on your to do list for the day.
–> You have a fresh coffee buzz, use it! 

Do you prefer to workout in the morning or the evening?

Workout Wednesday: Leg Day

RTC 174

Workout Wednesday: LEG DAY!

The legs are HUGE calorie burning muscles and building up muscle in them will help your body burn fat when you are at rest. Don’t be afraid to pick up a set of weights and squat! They will not make you bulky. Lifting weights will just help you have toned legs to show off in shorts this summer!

I did this leg workout yesterday and it was AMAZING! I have a love/hate relationship with training my legs. I love the results that using weights brings but let’s just say that stairs, sitting on toilets and walking is all painful today. I like to be sore because I visualize the soreness as my muscles growing. It hurts so good!

If you want to try this all you need is a set of dumbbells. I used 15 pound weights but you could do this workout with light weights if you are a beginner. It took me about 30 minutes to go through all sets with short breaks in the middle to catch my breath.

Work on YOU!!

RTC 153

The best project that you will ever work on is YOU!

A few years ago I would have read that and laughed. I thought my family was the best project I had and that they should get 100% of my attention. I thought that to be a “good” wife and mother I needed to be self sacrificing. I was giving my family every ounce of me and was left feeling empty inside.

After feeling empty for awhile I woke up one day and realized the only person who was going to take care of me was me! It was my responsibility to make sure I did things that fed my soul. I started to run and take time for me. Do you know what I realized? When I started taking time for myself and working on me, I became a better wife and mother.

Take care of you, do things that feed your soul and work on becoming the best you that you can be and I promise everyone around you will benefit!

New Year * New You!

New Year

I can’t believe that the 2015 is right around the corner.  Where did the time go?  It seems like 2014 just flew by!

January is usually when everyone gets a gym membership and commits to changing their health and fitness.  Have you been to a gym in the beginning of January?  It’s PACKED!!  Have you been back in February?  It’s back to how it was in December.  Why does that happen?  Most people are expecting instant results and when they don’t happen they give up.  They don’t know what they should be doing each day and slowly they stop going.

Here’s what I’ve learned since running and participating in challenge groups:

1. 80 % of your results come from your nutrition 

You can do cardio all day, everyday but if you don’t change your eating you’re not going to change your body. You can’t out exercise a bad diet.

21 Day Fix Results 2

2. SUPPORT is the key to SUCCESS!! 

Having a community of support to check in daily with is what was the secret to my success.  At any given time I could make a post in the closed group regarding my daily struggles and someone would give me either a tip, suggestion, lift me up or love on me so that I didn’t quit.  I felt encouraged that I wasn’t alone and that others were going through the same thing as me.  There was always someone else who was feeling like me and being part of that group made all the difference for me. I was not alone!  We were all in this together.

3. I need a system

I am the type of person that needs a detailed schedule to follow, a meal plan to duplicate and proven results for me to believe!  I cannot just wing it.  I need a guide to get me through each step.  I want to know that if I do X,Y and Z I will get the results of those in the infomercial.  I love that every Beachbody Fitness Program comes with a nutrition guide to help me eat for the workout I am doing!  I love that Beachbody has the awesome food storage containers so that I am eating the right amount of food each day.  It truly takes the guesswork out of my nutrition. This is afterall the hardest thing to change and Beachbody does a killer job at tackling that with ease!

4. Shakeology 

Shakeology is not a protein shake or weight loss quick fix.  I will be honest, I was skeptical at first when I heard of all the amazing things that Shakeology does for a body.  But despite being skeptical I had to try it.  I started to feel a change in my body after two weeks.  I had more energy, less cravings and my digestion was improved.  The biggest change was my energy level.  Plus it was nutrition that I wasn’t getting before.  I felt healthier, my workouts were better and now it’s my daily multivitamin.

5. Accountability for me

As a coach, I am just as accountable to myself as I am to my challengers.  As a coach I stay on track because I know I am leading by example. I want to inspire the others that I’m working with and each day I do my best as an example to them.   I want those around me to say, “If she can do it, I can do it too!  I’m no different than her” Because it’s true, I’m no different than anyone else.  I struggle and have off days too but being in a challenge group keeps me accountable.

Insanity Max:30 Friday Fight Preview

Are you feeling fierce today? I just finished Friday Fight Round 1 from Insanity Max:30 and now I’m pumped up and feeling FIERCE!!

I didn’t feel fierce when I started. In fact, I didn’t even want to workout this morning. I had a bunch of excuses trying to drag me down. But I used my 15 minute rule, on days I don’t want to do a workout I tell myself, “do it for 15 minutes and if I still want to quit I can quit” Usually 15 minutes is enough time to get me into my groove and I won’t quit. Plus with Insanity Max:30, 15 minutes is half way through the workout. 

I didn’t feel fierce while I was doing it either. This workout was tough and challenged me mentally from the very beginning. I kept saying to myself, ” ran a marathon I can get through this workout” it was that HARD!! But now that it’s all done, I feel so proud of myself that week one of Insanity Max:30 is DONE!!

If you want to join me on this INSANE journey, I’d love to help you!

Insanity Max:30

Insanity Max_30

What is Insanity Max:30?

NSANITY MAX:30 is the challenging new 30-minute, in-home workout program from Shaun T, creator of INSANITY and Focus T25. Shaun T has developed 150 new cardio and strength moves that will make you push harder and dig deeper than ever before to get the best body of your life in just 60 days.

INSANITY MAX:30 will be the hardest 30 minutes of the day and you need to be ready to MAX OUT. It’s not about “getting through” all 30 minutes, it’s about going as hard as possible, for as long as possible, until becoming “MAXED OUT” (i.e. until taking the first rest and/or breaking proper form). No equipment needed… just push to the MAX for INSANE results in just 60 days.

What can I expect?

First off, I can’t even begin to say how excited I am about this program.  INSANITY MAX:30 is a workout where you compete against yourself every single day.  You’re pushing yourself to your limits and seeing how far you can go.  The goal is to MAX out and go as long as you can without taking a break.  When you do take a break you record your time and try to push yourself a little further next time.  The workouts are intense but they’re shorter than most workouts.  You’ll get twice the sweat in half the time. Plus you only have to workout 5 days a week!  There is also a modifier in all the workouts and there is an option on the DVD to have the modifier shown onscreen at all times.  If you tried Insanity but want something with shorter workouts, this is for you!

Can you expect results?  YES!!!! You can expect to lose anywhere from 10-20lbs in the 60 day program! If you follow the workout calendar and nutrition guide, you will see results!  It’s that simple.  As your coach I will be by your side as you go through each workout.  I’ll make sure you’re accountable and motivated.  I’ll support you with your nutrition as well.

Who is this perfect for?

Anyone can do this workout because it’s You vs. You!!  You are going against yourself!

Anyone who did Insanity before and wants a new Shaun T. Workout.

Anyone who wants to max out with me

Anyone who wants a shorter but intense workout like Insanity.

Anyone who wants something new and wants to jump back into fitness.
