Day 16 of February Sweetheart Challenge!

Day 16

Sorry, I missed Monday.  Here we are ready for Tuesday!  I hope you are ready to go after it.  No matter where you are today, keep going and do your best.  Stay in the moment!!!

 

 

1) Tuesday- Cardio Day!

Pick a cardio workout and do it!  I’ll be dancing and doing some HIIT Training today.  Don’t even think about it.  Just make it a priority and don’t flake!  You are important!!!

 

 

2) Food- Back to Juicing!



3. Love Post!  Love takes Work:)

Having been married for almost seventeen years, I still consider myself a novice:)  People think that you just get lucky and find the “one”!  Well, luck has nothing to do with it.  It’s an investment and it takes work.  Erik and I invest in our marriage.  I’m grateful to be married to a man who has no ego.  He’s willing to learn and try new things.  We go to several seminars per year, marriage retreats, marriage workshops, as well as read marriage books, listen to talks on marriage on CD’s or DVD’s and many more.  We date regularly and we dream together.  Times get tough and we learn how to fight fair.  We have strict boundaries about what to say and what not to say.  We’re a work in progress but it’s a wonderful journey I wouldn’t trade for anything in the whole wide world!!!  Of course, GOD is the center of our relationship.  Without Him, we’re doomed!!!  We are very lucky to belong to a community of believers that are all trying to walk in the light and have vibrant, thriving marriages.  One of the events that we go to without fail is our annual “Marriage for Dummies” event!  We love this event and we try to bring as many people as possible to experience what it’s like to be in a room of people who are all trying to invest in their marriage.  Our culture and media portrays marriage as a life sentence. That could not be further from the truth!  Come and see what it’s really all about!!!  If you live in the Los Angeles area, please join us!!!

 

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

 

Day 15 & 16 of January Detox Challenge!

Day 15 & 16!

Hope you had a great weekend!  I celebrated my bday over the weekend and had loads of fun with family and food:)  I need to get back on track.  Remember, every day is a new day and a new beginning:)))

1) Food-  I started blending my drinks.  Juicing was getting way too expensive!  I’m going to do both.  It’s going really well.  I’m addicted:)))

 

 

2)  Workout- Work your lower body.  Legs, booty, and abs!  Go for an all around strength training routine too.  Try these:)

 

 

 

 

3) Mantra for the Day: Enjoy the Little Things!
Don’t forget to stop and enjoy the little things.  I’ve had the incredible opportunity to have family over the last few days.  I was off my normal routine, schedule, workouts, and eating habits.  Guess what!?!?!  I survived:))))  In the past, I would have been more concerned about staying on task than enjoying my family.  We’re in this thing for a lifetime.  I realized that I would never get this time back so enjoy it!  I hope you’re doing the same.

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

Day 82 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 82!

Happy Friday!

We’re counting down the days.  Have you written out your goals for 2013?  The key to accomplishing your goals is to write it down and have a plan.  This is the best book on goal setting that I’ve used.  I love it.  Check it out.  Go out and get it.  Totally worth it!!!

 

 

1.  Friday- Stretch and do some tabata and CORE strengthening.

 

 

2. Food- Juice Recipe

Here are some more juicing recipes…

 

3. Mantra for the Day: If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.

I definitely agree with this!  I say this in class all the time.  I love teaching my classes because my students are so game.  I come in with the craziest ideas sometimes and they always try it out.  Our workouts need to challenge us in order to change us.  But don’t let it stop on the physical aspect.  As you continue to grow in your faith, character, compassion, etc….you have to be willing to change.  Do something different.  Live life as an adventure.  Don’t play it safe.  Sometimes risks will pay off, sometimes they don’t.  It’s OK.  Learn from them.

 

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

 

Day 81 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 81!

Hope you had a great holiday break spending it with people you love.  I had a fabulous time and definitely indulged.  I’m looking forward to our detox coming up on January 7th!  There are some spots left if you want to join us.  I’m compiling some great recipes and testing them out on my new juicer.  Can’t wait!

 

1.  Thursday- Stretch and do 1 hour of yoga today.  Enjoy and breathe….

 

 

2. Food-Head start detox!

Clean out your system and prepare for our January detox.  We’ll probably have a couple more indulging days for New Year’s so get a jump start!

 

3. Mantra for the Day:  The trouble is, you think you have time.I always thought I had time to get in shape.  I was young, fairly healthy, I looked average in my clothes, and thought I had all the time in the world!  One day turned into a week, into a month, into months, into years, into a decade!  Basically from 30 to 40 I hardly worked out, I had three kids and thought my ship had sailed.  I never ever imagined that I could get in shape and be healthy.  I definitely didn’t think I could be in the best shape of my life in my forties!  Well, same rule applies, everyday of working out turned into a week, a month, many months and almost three years later, it’s become my way of life.  I LOVE to workout, I eat clean most of the time, I feel amazing and I count my blessings everyday!  I am dealing with the consequences of many years of neglecting my body. So don’t wait.  Do it NOW!!!  Keep at it.  One day at a time.  It’s a marathon, not a sprint!

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

 

Day 80 of 90 Day Challenge!

Day 80

I hope you enjoyed your Christmas festivities or whatever it is you celebrate.  All I know is that I enjoyed all the food and I’m excited and ready to get back on the clean eating wagon and get my system back to normal.  Can you believe we only have ten days left on this challenge!?!?!  This time of year, it was great to have that little extra accountability and to get encouragement not to totally fall off the wagon!  I decided in January, we will have a full on detox and sugar detox for 21 days starting on January 7th, 2013.  For my existing clients, my gift to you this year is to allow you to take the challenge FREE of charge.  All new clients will get a 50% off discount.  For NEW CLIENTS ONLY you can join our January Detox Challenge group for ONLY $20.00.  We will only have a limited number of spots for newbies so please rsvp and sign up ASAP.  I’m really excited about starting the year with a bang!!!  The time is NOW!  Don’t delay.  It’s gonna be hard but so worth it!

 

1.) Wednesday -Upper Body Day!
I love getting fitness related gifts!  I got an exercise ball and a juicer!  I’m so excited!!!  I’m taking my fitness to a whole new level.  You should have seen me today trying new exercises on my ball and I totally fell off of it a few times.  It would have been a great, graceful, exercise video. LOL!  I will be incorporating these in my classes.  Great for core strengthening and just a great full body workout:)))

2.) Food- Juicing!
Since I got a new juicer today, I’m so excited to try new recipes.  Please send me your favorites either on the comment section or on our facebook page.  Here are some I’m anxious to try.  Keep checking in with us because I will be posting more juicing recipes:)


I’ve got more juicing recipes…. Yummmmm!!!!  Found this on Pinterest!  Follow me and check out all my recipes….Follow me on Pinterest:)

 

 

3.) Mantra of the Day!- Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should!

This is my mantra for 2013!!!  I’m starting now because this is going to be a tough one for me.  I like to DO a lot of things.  I need to settle down, breathe, and only do what is necessary.  I need to practice being more in the moment and not be so concerned about doing everything all at once.  I have to remind myself that it’s OK if it doesn’t ALL get done TODAY.  I put a lot of unnecessary pressure on myself and I need to chill:)  You guys need to help me OK!?  We’re in this together.


Love you guys and I’m rooting for you!!!
