Today, I have more women to honor. These women started with our program less than a year ago. Some of them never worked out before. Their company hired Bootcamp Barre to come and hold fitness classes in their facility just twice a week. What I LOVE about these women is their determination. They showed up and worked hard. It was not easy. I remember the first week, some of them could not do push ups or planks. Today, you should see these ladies!!! They do full on push ups and planks for days! I’m so proud of them and all their hard work. I wanted to take this time to honor them and let everyone know how proud I am to work with such amazing women. I love what I do and I’m grateful to be in the journey with these ladies!!! Shout out to fellow trainer Vanessa who invested a lot of time, heart and energy to these ladies! Work it!!!:)))
1. Friday- CORE Day! Working the core will help alleviate lower back issues and will help with your posture. Many people think core is just all about abs. It’s so much more than that. Keep at it and try these exercises:)
2. Food- The biggest misconception about losing weight is skipping meals. Let me tell you, from someone who battled eating disorders, skipping meals will wreak havoc on your system. Don’t do it! The more I eat, the more fuel my body burns and the more weight I lose. When you skip meals, your body starts to store fat. Plan to eat every three hours and combine a balanced meal of protein, carbohydrates and good fat. Don’t eat junk food but don’t be afraid to eat good food:)
3. Mantra for the day: Success Isn’t What you Think it Is!
Success is not easy. It’s not overnight and sometimes, it feels like it’s never going to happen. It’s OK. Do it anyway! Once you form the fitness habit of just daily doing the work regardless of the results, you will find success. Success isn’t a number on a scale or a dress size. Success is an attitude, a belief in oneself, and a deep confidence that what you’re doing is the right thing. Don’t go for shortcuts or quick fixes. I’ve been seriously on this health and fitness road for a little over three years. That’s not that long. I was frustrated when I didn’t see results overnight and quit many times. I got back up and kept at it and I finally feel successful! I eat well, exercise, I love what I do and I try to balance it all. It’s definitely not perfect but I seriously am way more positive about where things are now than I’ve ever been my whole life! I struggled most of my adult life with body image and this is the first time I can look in the mirror and be happy with what I see. You can do it too! You will get there as long as you don’t give up. I’m here for you guys! You’re not alone.
Have a beautiful day! I love you guys and I’m rooting for you:)
