Day 21 of 60 Day Challenge!!!

Day 21!
I hope you’re ready for Monday!!!  I am:)))  I’m so excited to teach my bootcamp classes on Monday so I can share some of the ‘fun’ workouts I’ve been doing:)  Why should I be the only one having all the fun!?!?!  For those of you just checking in, I started Insanity last week.  It totally killed me and I LOVED every minute of it:)))  People have been asking me why I decided to do it.  Well, I like to challenge my body.  I’m way past doing this for vanity’s sake.  I’m not even doing this to lose weight.  I’m doing this because I want to prove to myself that I CAN!  Some people run marathons or climb mountains, I will do the Insanity workout video in my living room:)))  Of course I’m hoping to get massive results but more importantly, I want to see what I’m made of.  I want to see if I can do it.  I want to dig deep and finish the race.  I hope you guys can join us as we embark on the next thirty day challenge!!!  We’re gonna push ourselves to places we’ve never been!!!

 

1) Monday- HIIT Training and lower body exercises!
Let’s focus on challenging the body today.  Let’s push way past our comfort zone and get uncomfortable.  You know you’re working hard and pushing hard when you feel like you can’t do anymore!  Push yourself to YOUR edge today.

Try these exercises!!!

 

 

2) Mantra for the day! -YOU ARE CAPABLE!!!
The battle starts in our minds.  I talk to so many people that come up with excuses as to why they can’t get healthy.  You just need to start DOING and stop TALKING!  Action produces results.  Don’t wait until you FEEL ready or FEEL like it.  You will never FEEL ready!!!  It’s a decision and then you act on that decision.  It’s a shame to never know what you are capable of because you didn’t go out on a limb and try it.  My only regret is that I didn’t go after my health and fitness sooner.  I got really serious about my health and fitness September of 2009.  I was 39 years old and almost 40 by the time I got serious.  I feel like I wasted so much time by ‘thinking’ about getting healthy.  So what about you????  Remember yesterday you said tomorrow!?  Don’t delay!  Do it now:)  We’re here to support you.  You don’t have to do it alone.  We are taking registrations for the next 30 day Challenge group.  Registration ends on Wednesday, May 23rd!!! Sign Up Here!

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you!!!  XOXO:)))

Day 18 of 60 Day Challenge!!!

Day 18!

TGIF!!!  Woo hoo!!!  Well, It’s the weekend and it’s time to plan out your activities and meals.  Remember, when you fail to plan you plan to fail!!!:)))  In order to ensure victory, you MUST have a game plan.  Our culture and society does not set us up to succeed.  If anything, our system is designed to make you fail.  Once your guard is down, you are bombarded by advertising and easy access to unhealthy foods.  Stay present and engaged.  Know what you are consuming.  Keep moving!!!

 

 

1) Friday- Work your Core Day!  Make sure you stretch and cool down with every workout.  It’s very important to be warmed up before you engage in any exercise activity.  Stretch before and after too to prevent injuries.

 

 

 

2) INSANITY Day 2- Well, I thought I was going to breeze through this program.  I already do a lot of the moves in my bootcamp classes that I teach.  I totally underestimated the workout and as I’m writing this, my body feels like I ran into a mac truck!!!  It was definitely an AWESOME workout and I can’t imagine it getting harder.  I heard month two is the hardest workout series put on a DVD!  WOW!  Wish me luck:)  Basically, the moves are done in three minute intervals with a one minute rest/recovery.  In my classes, we do a thirty second interval with a ten second rest.  So, a minute feels like an eternity while you’re doing burpees, squat jumps, and mountain climbers.  I do like the challenge and I’m hoping to get some killer results.  All right…I’ll keep you guys posted..stay tuned!

 

3) Mantra for the Day- DIG DEEP!!!
It’s only fitting that I use this mantra today.  ‘Dig deep’ is the INSANITY workout mantra!  Whenever you think you can’t do it anymore, you dig deep and reach in.  There’s so much more inside of us if we dig deep.  I also believe that sometimes, that depth can only be brought out by someone else.  We may not believe that we can do it but if you have someone who believes in you, it’s amazing how that motivates and inspires you to believe it too.  We are opening up our new challenge group this Monday, May 21st!  If you need some encouragement or if you need to get to the next level, let us help you and encourage you to get there.  The secret is in our community groups.  We have am exclusive group that helps with accountability and encouragement.  We were never meant to this alone.  It’s great to hear real life examples from people just like you who are producing massive results!  Check out some of their stories here!!!  Register here and get two weeks FREE!!!  Change your life for less than a dollar a day.  You are worth it!

Love you guys and I’m rooting for you!!!  XOXO:)))

Day 17 of 60 Day Challenge!!!

Day 17!

Wow!  This week has flown by!   I’m so excited because I just started the Insanity program and it is challenging!!!  I was sweating like a pig in my living room and enjoying every second.  I’m a little scared about the rest of the program.  It’s no joke!  I wanted to share my fit test so I can be accountable:)))

2. Power Jacks- 63
3. Power Knees-85
4. Power Jumps-33
5. Globe Jumps- 13
6. Suicide Jumps-19
7. Push up Jacks-29
8. Low Plank Oblique-60
This was my first day and I will be testing again on Day 15.  I’ll keep you posted:)  This was done on one minute intervals and the program is done is three minute intervals!  Please pray for me!!!  I am totally Insane for doing this!!!

1) Thursday- Yoga Day!  Aside from my normal routine, I will be adding Insanity to the mix.  So, for everyone else stay on the program and do Yoga:)))  Or not…whatever you decide, do something that you enjoy:)))

 

2) Sugar Fact of the Day!  My detox is officially over!  Woo hoo!!!!  I did it and I feel fabulous!!!  I did have a little bit of fruit in my smoothie yesterday since I needed the extra carbs.  I am more convinced now that sugar is from the devil!!! LOL!  I don’t want to go back to the crappy sugar.  I’ll have fruit and maybe an occasional frozen yogurt but that’s it!  How about you?  Are you ready to take the Sugar Detox challenge???

 

3) Mantra for the Day- What’s your Transformation Story?

I’ve had my moments of being chubby and thin.  I am really excited because for the first time, I feel like all my cylinders are working together.  I am eating well and exercising at my peak performance.  In the past, I couldn’t get it together.  Either I worked out a ton and ate like crap or I ate really well and didn’t work out.  Also, my mental game was not on straight.  My motives were not pure and because I wasn’t obese, I didn’t really feel the urgency to get fit.  I knew my body well enough that if I needed to lose a few pounds I could.  Well, the yo-yo dieting took a toll on my body and now I struggle with thyroid issues, gluten sensitivity and sugar addiction.  I really have to be super careful and eat healthy because I HAVE to, not just because I WANT to.  I think the biggest thing I’ve learned so far on this journey, is to be yourself.  So much of my struggle came from looking at other women and comparing myself.  My standards we’re not realistic.  So I learned to be patient and OK with myself.  I had to surrender the idea that as a forty two mother of three I wasn’t going to look like a woman in her twenties.  I don’t mind it because I’m actually in way better shape now than I’ve ever been!  So, be patient.  Surrender your expectations and enjoy the journey.  It’s not going to be perfect everyday.  Be OK with it!

I’m on a 90 day Insanity Challenge to get ripped so stay tuned:)))
Love you guys and I’m rooting for you:))))  XOXO!!!
