  1. Change your routine.- Whether you need to wake up earlier or go to bed later.
  2. Get someone to keep you accountable.- Share your goals with a spouse/significant other, a friend/coworker.
  3. Change the scenery.- If your house is dark- lighten it up, if you are working out at the gym, start at home.
  4. Get something that will motivate you.- smaller shirt, swimsuit, new workout clothes/shoes.
  5. PLAN AND PREP.- Plan each week out, when you’ll workout, what you’ll eat. and prepare for it! Set you workout clothes out the night before/take them to work and wear them home. Prep your meals, breakfast-snacks-lunches-dinners. YES YOU CAN PREP IT ALL!

You can’t change if you continue to do the things you’ve been doing that are not changing you!!!!

No need to spend hours at the gym or commuting to a gym, when your gym can be your LIVING ROOM!!!!

I hear so often, I just want to unwind when I get home from work or I would rather sleep an extra 30 minutes… what does that do for you? Does it give you energy for your day or help you sleep better at night? Do you release your stresses of the day some other way? Do you release your endorphins? Do you have full energy from start to stop? Is that why you have to “unwind” at the end of the day?

Life is busy, I get it! I have 3 kids- 2 in sports, a busy toddler, run a business, and have a husband with a crazy busy schedule! I GET BUSY!  But when I can workout in the am, it starts my day! I go to bed when the kids do- or i’ll stay up an extra 30-60 minutes and chat with my husband! Life can get crazy- but if you don’t have a way to destress, its going to catch up to you! Lets get you a way to get the energy you need now and work on that body you want to have this summer!!!

Self respect. How many of us can say that we have legitimate respect for ourselves? What is it that gets in our way daily from truly believing in us as strong, worthy humans?

For me, I have always struggled with people pleasing. Making sure everyone else’s needs were met and never truly even knowing I had any of my own.

I learned through A LOT of therapy and a lot of reading that I do in fact have needs! Who knew!

Self care, putting our masks on first, is a vital part of not only our health and fitness journey but being internally fulfilled as well. So today, what I ask of you is this: What will you do this week for yourself? Will you journal? Take a bubble bath? Take 10 min to just be silent in the morning when all the world still sleeps? Whatever it may be, I ask that you do it.

And once you determine what that will be tell me in the comments below and let’s make it happen. I promise you, it will change your life.

I look forward to hearing all of your responses and helping you make them a reality.

Top 5 Tips: Fitness Success

Today I would love to chat Goals and how you can reach them, but you know what- thats for another day… Today is going to be my top 5 tips on how to succeed when you are on your fitness journey!

P1000354

#1: Support: You have to have support, whether it is at home-friends-or online support, like myself. You can reach only so much by yourself- you can also sacrifice and give up easier when its just you! So before you move onto tip #2, you have to commit to getting a support partner! If you need me- I am a message away!

#2. Be mentally prepared: You have to mentally be ready to commit to your fitness. You have to know that you will be tempted, you will have setbacks, but you will have the mental strength to put one foot in front of the other! We all go through ups and downs in our fitness journey- but you have to have the willingness to keep going, every day, no matter what you are faced with.

#3. Plan: You have to plan and be prepared to start, When will you start? What is your start date? What is your fitness regimen? What is your nutrition and meal plan like? What will you do every day to stay accountable? How will you plan for that birthday party or office lunch in? You can fail to plan or plan to fail. You have the decision to make- what will it be? Will you have your commitment, plan, and support ready to start on X date?

#4. Start: When you have your known supporters, you’re mentally prepared, you have your plan in stone. You have to just start- You cannot procrastinate. The longer you say tomorrow the longer your results will happen. The longer you wait the more time you are setting yourself up for failure. You must start and stay on track- Progress not Perfection.

#5. Decide. Commit. Succeed.: Now it is time for you to decide, commit, and succeed. Your success is a direct reflection of how ready you are for change! If you are ready to conquer the world, then you need to have your plan in place! You need to commit- write your goals down and strive to do better each day. You will succeed, but you have to have the confidence that your goals are worth it to you! YOU ARE WORTHY! Make this fitness journey like no other journey out there!

IMG_9303

 

Week 2 started out great! I felt amazing, still had a cough.. and by wednesday (day 10) I was off to the Urgent Care (DR) because my son started the cough and I needed to be able to say this cough wasn’t anything serious… WELL Antibiotics it was and thats when my mood and body went down hill =( I just felt nasty, icky, and worse than before the antibiotics! So I am pushing through and today is day 6 of the antibiotics and so I will finish them in time to rock the last 10 days of whole 30… BUT i have stayed complaint and eating my normal foods on my meal plan even without an appetite and only wanting bad sweets… I will have a piece of fruit, coffee with coconut oil blended, or a larabar to overcome that craving! WE SUCCEEDED week 2!

As They Say… Don’t drink Shakeology with on Whole 30, I again need it for my health! I don’t feel Shakeology has anything bad in it- so I don’t think I personally need to eliminate it from my body… which Whole 30 is an elimination diet of the bad (sugars, dairy, legume, and grains) to see what is negatively effecting your body!

Core de Force week 2 update…

Core De Force is the BOMB!!! It is my new favorite workout! I get soo excited to wake up and workout! While the workouts are great, my nutrition has been ok, and I am still seeing results! I celebrated a 30th birthday and thanksgiving within the first 15 days and still managed to lose 4.1 lbs and 2.5 inches around my body! These are my before and current pictures… 

Core De Force, Progress, Fitness, Beachbody

You can find my meal plan here. Along with that the other change I made was wearing a post baby belly band. Picture below- but what it does is helps me hold my core in while working out- being postpartum almost 9 months now- I knew I needed some change for my body to change. I have been working out every day since being cleared at 6 weeks post baby… but my body would not change- i would barely lose lbs (i think a total of 6 in 8 months) and lost a good amount of inches… but nothing consistent! I finally feel this program will help the drop consistently- which is what we need to see to stick to it right?

Core De Force, Progress, Fitness, Beachbody, Belly Band, Postpartum, baby 3

 

As I finish this first round of Core De Force, I will clean up my diet- I will add warm lemon water to my morning routine, and I will be on the look out for more support and challengers to go side by side with me!

Are you looking for support in your fitness journey? I AM! JOIN ME!

Meal Prep, KEY to Success

Tip #7 to a NEW you is Meal Prep… WHen you have everything prepped for the week you will have an easier time to eat clean and stay on track!

 

Unknown-2

So far we have covered

Tip #1: Clean Eating

Tip #2: Exercise

Tip #3: Water

Tip #4: Tracking

Tip #5: Accountability

Tip #6: Schedule

 

 

Meal Prep is something that can tack a long time, but if and when you get the routine down it will take tops and hour a week!

What does meal prep consist of? Anywhere from baking your chicken for salads and wraps to cutting all veggies and fruit for the week!

  1. Wash and Cut fruits and Veggies and put into individual bags or containers for the week! WeeklyFoodPrep-1024x1024
  2. Bake all of your chicken for the week! If you are cooking for just you or the whole families lunch, Bake 6-10 chicken breast on SUnday or your meal prep day! (put on baking sheet, add seasoning, and cook on 375 for 25-30 minutes, turn once!)
  3. Cook a large batch of Quinoa plain, and then the night before or that day add your spices and veggies for lunch or dinner, or your berries for breakfast! all you’ll have to do is cook in warmer for 5 min and it will be done, unless you eat old!
  4. Individually put your salad with veggies in containers so that you just have to cut and add chicken/protein!
  5. Cut your dinner veggies and place in bags so that when its dinner time, you just have to cook!
  6. Make a large crock pot clean dish (ideas @ graciouspantry.com ) and freeze for the week! Take out for lunches or dinner!

 

Meal-Prep

 

If you are in the “warmer” climate: Grill out! This is a picture from summer meal prep for my family!IMG_6376

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meal prep will be however and whenever you decide! You can spend the extra $$$ at the grocery store and by “pre cut” fruits and veggies and meal prepped veggies (stir fry and stews) but if you are in a budget: do it yourself! It honestly does not take long!

 

If you prep and bake chicken first, cut fruits and veggies, take out chicken, and individually package your salads, you will be done! Label it if you need (dry eraser makers are great! or labels!)

 

What is one thing you NEED to prep and one thing you have a hard time prepping? Post BELOW!
