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!
#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!
Next we will touch on GOALS, those are scary! Stay tuned!
How many of you out there think you have to be fit to start Insanity? How many of you think you need to be fit to start an intense workout program? Cortni S. is proof that you can do whatever it is you want to do!
I had the honor of watching part of her transformation unfold and let me just tell you! SHE IS AN INSPIRATION! Always positive, never doubting her abilities, and always wanting to push harder!
“At 25 years of age I never thought I would step on the scale and be so close to the 300 pound mark. Just before my 21st birthday I rapidly gained 100 pounds. I stopped exercising and stopped watching what I ate and four years later that 100 pounds turned to 145. I had no self respect, no self esteem, and no self worth. I don’t even remember looking into the mirror those 5 years, I couldn’t look myself in the eye. I was smoking a pack of cigarettes a day, sleeping 16-20 hours a night. I could barely get myself out of bed to go to work. I would drive through the fast food window almost every day, order 12 dollars worth of food off the dollar menu and still be hungry when I finished it all. Life became unmanageable and I suddenly found myself unsure if I could live. I was taking every anti-depressant under the sun. My work quality declined and I was constantly getting reprimanded for poor work performances. I stopped smiling. I stopped having fun. I didn’t know who I was anymore.
On March 31, 2011, I woke up feeling the same way I always did: stuck. I knew this was the way my life was destined to be forever. There was no big white flash of hope or any powerful revelation that struck me in the head, but on that day, I knew that if I didn’t do something to start bettering my life that I was going to die. It had suddenly turned into a life or death situation for me. I knew that if I didn’t change I was going to die. I had once loved life. And the thought of the happy girl I once was gave me hope. I quit smoking that day, and I have never taken another puff since. It took a year before I was willing to start working on my diet. I made slow dietary changes and bought p90x which I did occasionally. Slow changes helped me lose the first 40 pounds in 6 months. Once I saw those slow changes take shape in my body, I realized I could change my life. The next 60 pounds came off a lot easier because I got serious about dieting and exercise. I loved the way I felt! With 100 pounds gone I knew that it was finally time to start taking my life, my fitness, and my transformation seriously. I had completed p90x in a year. I wondered what would happen if I completed a program in the recommended time frame. My greatest battle has always been within my own head. I was constantly telling myself I couldn’t do it. My brain likes to live in fear. It fears change, it fears commitment, and it fears discipline. I had always been so afraid to try Insanity because I knew I would never be able to complete it, but on a whim I bought it. I spent the next 60 days proving to myself that I was worth it. I spent 60 days at war with my head and with my body. I pressed play every day, I cried, I whined, and I said bad words, but at the end of those 60 days I found myself 27 pounds lighter and 32 inches smaller. In those 60 days I proved to myself that nothing was impossible now that I had changed my thoughts. I proved that thoughts become actions.
To me the Insanity program was the ultimate fitness program. I never thought I could complete it, yet alone have success with it. I got a coach, I entered a support group, and I used these tools as a source of accountability on the days when I wanted to ignore Shaun T. To me Insanity was for athletes and skinny people, and to be honest…I was still feeling a little bit “fat”. I chose Insanity because I wanted to see what I could really do when I set my mind to it. I wanted to prove to myself and to anyone who had ever doubted me that I was unstoppable. Beachbody has given me the old Cortni back. Beachbody has given me an opportunity to make money doing what I love, helping people achieve their weight loss goals. Beachbody has given me self worth, self esteem, self respect, and a lot of confidence. I deserve nothing but the best, and why would I turn to any other fitness company when that is the case. I owe my health and my changed mind to Beachbody. My gratitude is unending.”

What is it?
INSANITY® is a 60-day cardio- based total-body conditioning program that’s the most intense workout ever put on
DVD. Fitness expert Shaun T drew on his collegiate track and field training, plus his subsequent years of experience as an elite trainer, to create a program that takes total-body conditioning to an extreme level.
Why is it effective?
Interval training allows you to beat the “stress adaptation response,” which is what happens when your body gets used to exercising at one level of exertion and stops improving. An interval workout includes a set where you perform at your maximum, followed by one of lower intensity, with the cycle repeated to achieve a cumulative effect.
INSANITY uses MAX Interval Training, which replaces your moderate- intensity exercise with maximum-intensity exercise, and your short intervals of intensity with short periods of rest. Adding high-intensity exercise, during which your heart rate increases to 80 percent or more of its maximum capacity, forces your body to use fast-twitch muscle fibers not normally engaged in cardio exercise. These fast-twitch fibers continue burning extra fuel even during lower-intensity exercise.
INSANITY’s high-intensity activity is likely to have you working out at over 85 percent of your maximum capacity, instead of the lower rate recommended in other programs. As a result, you’ll experience faster increases in fitness and more efficient burning of carbohydrates and fat—as much as 1,000 calories per hour.
What can it do for you?
INSANITY pushes you beyond what you thought was possible with explosive cardio and plyometric drills and nonstop intervals of strength, power, and resistance. Additional ab and core training techniques will help you transform your body in just 60 days.
Beachbody Challenge Packs are the complete package, offering total support for achieving health and fitness goals. The formula? Fitness + Nutrition + Support = Success.

“I chose P90X because it was the most intense program Beachbody offered—and I was looking to take no prisoners. My results were great, so I moved on to Insanity. Shaun T is amazing and has a no excuse work ethic that I love! He doesn’t baby you. It’s ‘Get fit or get out!’ You gotta love that. I love it so much, I entered The ASYLUM, and that’s my favorite program so far. I’ve lost 78 lbs. to date. I’m lean and toned, but the best news is that I can keep up with my Marine Corps husband—and that makes me really happy!
Way to go Tara!
So you get sick or busy or life gets ahold of you an you just need a day or two to rest… THIS HAS HAPPENED TO US ALL!!! What do we do after we are ready to come back??? Do we start the week over, do we start the program from Day 1, do we double up on our missed workouts… NO YOU START WHERE YOU LEFT OFF!!! It is ok that your program goes 91 days, 65 days, or 39 days! WE ARE NOT PERFECT and life may get in the way! We all get sick and we all have days where we barely have time to go to the bathroom… IT IS OK to take a day to rest!
When you are sick or have a pounding headache and try to workout through the pain… You are only going to injure yourself more… your immune system is not 100% and is telling you you need to slow down… SO LISTEN! When you workout through illnesses or pain your body will never recover and you are only going to get sicker or injure yourself worse!
You never want to take the chances with any cold or injury so make sure you consult a doctor before going back to your workout regime! Also anytime you are sick you should check to see what your doctors says or feels you should do! I personally thought I just had a neck pain and it turns out I have Neck subluxation and cannot workout intensely for the next 12 weeks.. bummer YES, but if I would have not gone to the doctor, I would have never known that I would be off for that long! SO CHECK WITH A PROFESSIONAL!
Once you are cleared to workout, PICK UP WHERE YOU LEFT OFF!!! Each Beachbody Program is designed the way it is for the BEST possible results! So if you take too much time off, yes restart it! This is just my advice and recommendations!!! I hope this helps you in the future =)
One Year Ago today I COMMITTED to P90X and Shakeology! I was MISERABLE with who I was, what I saw in the mirror, and everyone around me! I was DEPRESSED, Angry, and a MEAN PERSON! I was in a dark hole of my life and it was not fair to the ones around me, the people that mattered the most, my family, husband, and most of all MY CHILDREN! Because I was so miserable with myself I took it out on EVERYONE around me, everything and anything someone around me did was wrong or bothered me! I would fight with my husband for NO reason, yell at my kids for BEING KIDS, and argue with my parents and family over something STUPID!
This past year has been a LIFE CHANGER!!! I have met some AMAZING people who all care about the same thing- Health and Fitness! I started my journey with P90X and saw awesome results and then decided to do Insanity (i didn’t lose a pound but lost inches)! I saw so much support throughout our team that no matter if I had a slip up or a down day, which I had MANY, they were all still there to push me back up and help me through the journey! I say a journey because its not something that happens over night! Yes I was excited about what was to come, but it took work to change my attitude! I would be negative and still said mean things until I started seeing myself change! This was a physical and mental journey, I just did not know yet! I honestly believe that you SUCCEED when you have SUPPORT and when you surround yourself with LIKE-MINDED people!!!
This is when I started feeling COMFORTABLE in my skin! I was helping others reach their fitness goals and started Inspiring my family! This was a huge STEP in my journey! To do it for yourself or your family is one thing, but when you INSPIRE others to do the same thing it makes ALL of the STRUGGLES worth it! I have learnt some valuable lessons from different foods, the body equation, to what really matters and how staying consistent it what make the difference!
Nutrition 80%+ Exercise 10% + Genes 10%= YOUR BEAUTIFUL BODY!!!
Because this journey has made me a stronger person and aware of my body! I can help others achieve their HIGHEST POTENTIAL!!! I am willing to help you get fit and healthy and inspire those around you! If you cannot do it for yourself, do it for your loved ones! I GUARANTEE IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!!!!!
I WOULD LOVE TO HELP YOU DO THE THINGS YOU WERE DESTINED TO DO!!! Have questions!?!? Email ME email@example.com
