Sunday Funday Announcements!

Too much fun to talk about all at once! Its a farm market full of wonderful, fresh things this time of year and Beachbody has decided to celebrate fall with a new and exciting announcements!

One of the things that continues to draw me in and keep me believing in this company is the passion and belief from the top down. They continue to make products to help people, we were all saying time was an issue and the they brought us  workouts, that well work and leave us much needed time in our busy days!

So much my crazy brain doesn't even know where to start. This week the man I that saved my self esteem with the original P90x and got me to my 35lb weight loss, well he has a 30 minute program in a new P90!

Most people - especially woman say to me - You really did that? Yep I really did, and I did every workout, for 90 days. And well they are long, really long.
But not the NEW P90 the workouts are from 25-45minutes! Tony Horton and P90x are they only workouts that have ever given me abs that I was excited about! My goal this year is to be at coach summit in Nashville and Thank him!  I cannot wait to see what I can do with this program. Its available in 2 days and only through a Beachbody coach!  The man himself had this to say about his new program..... I can't imagine not being successful when there is passion behind it!

 "is the result of everything i've learned in 20 years.  here's the key . . . in as little as 25 minutes a day, p90 will help you completely change your body—not by working you harder—but by keeping it simple. simple cardio. simple resistance training. a simple approach to portion control. i won't say these new workouts are easy . . . but they're a whole lot easier to get done now. and that's how p90 will help you finally get the body you want."tony horton creator of p90x®, p90x2®, and p90x3® 

Excited about P90? Well wait there is more, eek!  My brain hurts! Shaun T - Who doesn't love this man? and hate him all at the same time, I mean really. Even my 3yr old has yelled at him while we are working out.  "stop saying that " she tells him!  He is an awesome motivator and the way he speaks at beachbody events he really has a heart for people!
Where are all the crazy Insanity people ? Did you not think that Insanity was insane enough? Oh you didn't well great ! They heard you and just in time for Christmas Insanity Max will be here for all you crazies! But guess what its only 30 minute workouts! I'm pretty sure you will have to peel me off of the floor!

 Tomorrow starts week 3 of the 21 day fix for me. I have seen such amazing results on this program already I can't wait to see what happens in the final week. And now even more I'm excited for my valentines day present, yep you read that right, valentines day. Amazing, Awesome Autumn will be back with 21 day fix extreme! and it will be complete with a nutrition guide to biking competition. This will not be available until Feb 2015 so if you haven't tried 21 day fix this is great week to order it so you are ready for the extreme version next year!

This one looks a little intimidating to me, honestly, but I have until February to get ready for it right? Are you interested in a new program but do not know where to start? Thats where I come in ! email me, friend me on Facebook, send me a message and we can figure out where you need to start!

We are all different, what is good starting point for me, may not be the same place to start for you, but the key is starting, and then to keep going, with support, friends, and whole new way of approaching your life. It may not be easy but you just need to take the first step.

Is today that day?

Enjoy your Sunday, I hope its a beautiful one ~

21 Day Fix Week 1

As promised I'm keeping you up to date with my actual attempt at the 21 day fix.

Who knew 30 minutes a day could leave you feel sore, sculpted and stronger! Dirty 30 is my favorite by far!

My meal plan has been pretty boring this week, everyone has been a little under the weather, so its been a pretty basic, boring week of cooking, soups,  salads, roasted veggies, and grilled chicken but I am definitely keeping tabs on my portions and these little color coded containers are my best friend!

However -

I did have a weekend fail - but it was fun.

We were able to spend time with a few friends we haven't seen for quite awhile ( why is it so hard to make time for friends these days?) and well I followed all my suggestions. Pre - eat, drink water, etc, etc.
Yes cheat meals are allowed as you change your lifestyle, heck even encouraged, but I have been playing around with these last few lbs for a while and I really just want them gone. So I told myself I was on lock down nutrition is key and I was just going to stick to the program. You are  allowed wine and chocolate on 21 day fix so really how hard could it be?

Well. Confession, I caved. I just had to taste a little of some of the yummy things that were right in front of me.  Oatmeal raisin cookie dip???  I am keeping my fingers crossed that it was a healthy option, I eventually had to move myself away from it but wow it was yummy!
Now don't get me wrong, I didn't binge, I did eat smaller portions, but when I have been carefully watching my intake of sodium, carbs etc and really watching my portions it was a little much.

So today I made sure my water intake was where it should be! really watched my fix portions and I will be right back on track!  I"m not going to let one fun night with friends derail me from my goals!

Do you need a little support to get you back on track? Portion control an issue for you?

Join my on September 22nd for my next challenge group! We can do this together!

What do you already have?

Its Wednesday, we need a little mid week motivation right now right?

School is in full swing, routines are here, and along with all of our jobs between home and work, we have goals for ourselves.  Maybe you have started on your journey and you just do not feel equipped to handle what you are working for?  Maybe you are looking to start but just do not know where to begin.

Just look a little deeper. Its there, you may not have all the tools you need to accomplish that one thing you are reaching for, but you have at the least the ability to start. Day 1. Get going, along the way you will learn what you need to finish, or maybe you will acquire the skills through hard work and determination. Either you already have enough to begin!

Do you have a goal you want to accomplish? Is it really a goal or still in the dream stage?

I am looking for 3-5 motivated people to turn their dreams into goals!  Starting September 22nd.

Message me for Details!

Simple Changes can bring success

Sometimes its as simple as saying to yourself "Right  now I'm going to start!"

Don't wait for a Monday, what is it with Monday's anyway? We either make Monday this magical mystical day where every new change is going to begin and we will have all the power to do everything we have ever wanted to do, or......... We loathe Monday like a baby trying green peas for the first time, making a face spitting it out and flailing our arms about like we can make it go away.

Yes I'm writing this on a Monday, but you change any day that you choose. If you are reading this on a Wednesday and you say "Monday I will start eating healthy.", or "Monday I will start reading personal development", you have lost so many days already that by the time you reach that next magical Monday you could have already reaped the rewards of starting when the thought first entered your mind.

As parents when we ask our children to change a behavior, we never tell them to change next Monday, do we? I know everyone has different parenting styles, but I've never heard anyone say to their kids, "susy please stop poking your sister, but don't stop until Monday". How crazy would that be????

If you are considering starting in my next challenge group but are on the fence, make a change today pick one thing and change it for the next 7 days and see how you feel. You will be amazed!

Just like the message I received over the weekend -

How much did she lose you ask? Keep reading.... 
The best part about this is not that she lost weight, that part is absolutely amazing - the exciting part is that she has the tools already in the pre-season week prior to us actually starting the full program. She began to implement eating clean, being active minutes a day, Making better choices, and guess what in 7 days..... 7.5 lbs gone forever!  That was in the pre-season week. Today we actually started the full challenge workouts and portion control. She is on Fire and I cannot wait to see what the next 21 days brings! 

If you have not yet joined a challenge group, don't wait until the day you decide to chose one. Start today. Make a choice today to something better then you did yesterday. 
If you would like information on my next group starting on September 22nd send me an email we can chat about what would work for you!

"I am so happy for me!"

Literally out of the mouths of babes....

Some of you may know I teach gymnastics a few days a week. This year I have the fabulous opportunity to work with preschoolers. Every year that I have had the opportunity to work with this age group I always walk away feeling if we could just bottle that energy and carry it with us for the rest of our lives. As a mom of a preschooler I am constantly in awe of the wonderment of life.

Today was no different. As I walked a darling little girl over to the preschool version of the high beam, she flashes me the biggest smile, clasps her little hands together and says with glee and maybe a squeal,

"I have always wanted to do this, today I am so happy for me!"


I instantly thought, I just want to be her. Because its OK, to be happy for yourself. No Really its OK. I think in the everybody gets a trophy world that we are in, sometimes we feel like we cant celebrate our successes big or small.

Setting goals, and having a journey that you are planning for, planning to arrive somewhere and be full of accomplishments, its really OK to be happy for you!

Its OK to be excited for our successes, its OK to achieve what we have been focused on, and its OK to reach out and grab it (with all the hard work involved). 

So my Challenge for you today, what will you do that at the end of the day, when your head hits the pillow and you are exhausted beyond belief, what will you smile and dance and squeal with glee..... 

That "I am so happy for me!"

Monday Mom Moment ~

I"m going to try something new.... and Since tomorrow is Monday for most. Well why not...

Busy Mom Fit Tip for the start of the week:

Lay out your workout gear, shoes included the night before. Place shoes right next to your side of the bed. Preferably really close to wherever your alarm is stationed, this way when your alarm goes off at 5am and your feet hit the floor to scramble and turn it off you are likely to trip over your shoes and pile of mismatched workout gear (I workout at home too, I know you don't match!) Most likely this will annoy you, and your heart rate will raise and you will be to keyed up to go back to sleep which will force you to make the trek to your workout spot and kill it!

~ Great tip right?

Your welcome!

Happy Monday!
