After one of those nights where I tossed and turned all night till 4 am then finally got a few hours sleep from 4-8 am, it was hard to get up and going this morning! I need a LOT of extra UMPH to get me onto the treadmill today for a morning run … I totally needed it though… I am super stiff and sore from all that tossing around and need to loosen up big time. The concept of extra “UMPH” really got me thinking…😁
Having extra UMPH applies to all other areas of life too! It often takes an extra push to go a little outside our comfort zone to make progress and change in our life. It could be in our relationships, decisions, finances, business, emotional health, fitness, work, social skills, life skills and more.
I would say as we are heading towards the new year, put a little extra UMPH into some areas of your life and see just how dramatic the positive changes will be! Lets get out of the rut we are living in and make some amazing progress in 2018! Get your excitement and passion for life back again! Pick 3 areas of your life that need it most, then go for it! (And be sure to write them down!… Putting pen to paper, makes the achievement and success more likely!…)
Enjoy your Holiday Season and let’s get ready for a fabulous and incredible 2018 with all that extra “UMPH”!! 😁😁

The truth is this…. You can accomplish anything if you believe in yourself…absolutely anything!! I used to doubt myself a lot and that just downright lowers your confidence and affects your happiness and productivity in the long run! Believe in yourself and what you do and you will accomplish GREAT things!
If you have a hard time believing in yourself, then it is seriously time to start doing some personal development work. A good book to read is “you are a bad ass” by Jen Sincero and another is “The compound effect” by Darren Hardy…both great books! Personal development work will totally change your life…this I can promise you. It has totally changed mine…and my daughter’s too!!

Have you ever had a dream where you could fight like they do on TV in those farfetched movies? Like fly through the air and drop kick, or knock down several people in minutes with your kick ass moves? During my workout this morning, I was visualizing just that! LOL😂.
It was so fun to imagine this during my whole 40 minutes of kicking, slashing and punching that I was actually laughing out loud at myself in the end! I seriously got the best workout this morning as a result and am still laughing as I type this post…😂
When our workout is fun and we get creative and imaginative, it really boosts motivation for the next workout! I am officially DONE ✅ day 49 of my current 91-day fitness challenge and it feels amazing!
The bonus now is that my mind really believes I have kicked someone’s ass who deserves it. I won’t mention any names 😉

You may be wondering a little about just how I ended up being here like this with you today.
Let me tell you a quick story about a couple years ago, I was so tired, sore, miserable and unhappy….had sore back, knees and whole body pain issues. Was overweight and living cheque to cheque and was truly in a bad place in life. .
At the time I was trying to find a way to pay bills as a single mom, eat clean and get into better shape..
I was struggling with juggling kids, grandson, work, looking after an acreage, horses, dogs and trying to get the bills paid. It felt like I had no time and certainly no energy to exercise and no money to buy the proper healthy food..
And I was getting more and more disgusted with the extra weight i was carrying around and realized just how out of shape I had become. I was frustrated with never having any money left over after payday. .
Then something really bad happened: I went outside to play with my kids on the lawn and suffered severely with body and back pain after that for weeks, and realized something had to change. I saw my doctor and every medical test was normal, which told me clearly that there was something seriously wrong with my lifestyle and habits..
Being in crappy shape like this meant I couldn’t be the kind of mom, grandma and friend I wanted to be and to be able to afford to do fun things in life like we deserved to do..
As you can imagine, I was in bad shape and desperate, but I wasn’t ready to give up on my dream of having my own business to build financial freedom and getting healthy again with the ultimate goal to be in the best shape of my life..
Then I discovered something called Team Beachbody, which has superfood and professionally designed fitness programs…and an opportunity to build financial freedom at the same time!
At that point, everything changed!
I discovered / finally figured out how to:
– Regain my energy, zest for life and be able to feel good again
– Working out at home with professional programs really gave amazing results (check out the muscles!)
– Eating clean and superfood is NOT expensive at all if you learn to manage your grocery budget and do not eat out
Because I discovered Team Beachbody, superfood and professionally designed fitness programs and the business opportunity, I was able to:
– Run and play with my grandson with energy and without getting tired or sore,
– Lose 40 pounds and maintain weight easier and have the effective tools and expertise to help others to get healthier as well
– Look younger, feel younger, and pay off debt which had been plaguing me for years and finally feel HAPPY!
Now I’m living my dream of having my own business and getting healthier to be in the best shape of my life and I never have to worry about suffering ever again.
And that’s why I’m so passionate about our upcoming 21 day beginner superfood and fitness challenge where we provide the free coaching so you can successfully experience getting back into shape to be in the best shape of your life too! ..and even grow your own fitness business if you want!

I call this delicious stuff my youth and energy potion. 😊 Seriously though, over two years of drinking this superfood every day has totally changed my life!! For heaven’s sake, I am a mother of 2, grandmother of 1, running 2 businesses and working part time (70% of full time) in clinic plus studying a marketing course and I am fired up, happy and energized every day because of the superfood kick every morning!!! 😁😁 …Keep in mind that I am almost 50 years old and I am a grandmother!
I have noticed tremendous life-changing effects by using this superfood just once every day…. here they are…
1. ENERGY!! My energy is so amazing
2. WELL-BEING! I have an indescribable level of well-being which then gives me a high level of positivity.
3. MENTAL CLARITY! I have incredible mental clarity…feels great to be sharp, clearer thinking, and to feel like I am really on my toes!
4. KILL CRAVINGS!! Superfood has made it MUCH easier to maintain a long term clean eating lifestyle by cutting cravings (and with good energy, you don’t feel as hungry!!)…and it is so delicious, I feel like I am getting a treat every day!
5. LOOK YOUNGER! My hair, skin and nails are more soft, supple and younger looking and with a healthy glow! (The look of youth!)
6. HORMONES BALANCED! My hormones are balanced with the specific combination of adaptogens and superfoods in each once-daily shake…I have zero hot flashes, zero fatigue, sleeping well, and NO mood swings!! This superfood has adaptogens like Maca, Astragalus and Ashawaganda that helps my endocrine system regulate hormonal requirements that the body needs.
7. PREVENT DISEASE! This combination of phytonutrients, cellular nutrition, and antioxidants gives my body the high level of dense nutrition it needs to fight illness and prevent disease! It makes me feel good to know that I am doing the very best I can to prevent conditions related to oxidative stress such as cancer! …not to mention preventing all those obesity & nutrition-related disease like diabetes, gallbladder and liver disease, heart attack and strokes and more! I can tell you with absolute certainty that I will NOT EVER be without my daily superfood!
This morning, I am having cafe latte shaken straight with water and ice cubes…absolutely heavenly! 😊
Reply “yes!” to this post if you too would like to experience the benefits of this once-daily superfood! Keep in mind that this superfood comes with a 30 day trial. WHAT? …YES! You can try this shake for 30 days and if you are not satisfied with what it does for you, you can get your money back by sending back the empty bag! …That is just how certain we are that you will feel an amazing transformation with this stuff!

A great way to kick off a new week early on a Monday morning!! MMA Shred action to boost the metabolism, shred the core and burn calories!! The beauty of this program is that it is FUN!

What better way to get into good shape, but to do some super fun physical activity!? There is no more dreading a workout or feeling like its something I “have to” do. It’s something I am driven to do that totally makes my day! That mindset shift makes all the difference!

It is what you do today that really matters. NOT what you say or think you will start doing tomorrow, next week, or after an event …it’s the actions that happen now that actually matter.
Just think how different your life would be if your decisions occurred quickly and the action started today? How would you then feel 3 months from now?
Its not just about health though….success in every area of our life depends on action in the right direction. It could be decisions about business, relationships, finances, career, and so much more!!
Being on the fence and procrastination…both lead to the death of success. I have been there before and learned this lesson the hard way. Don’t lose out on opportunities by waiting too long….you may lose out on something or someone forever by waiting or planning for “tomorrow”
Decide quickly, take action now and achieve quicker than you ever imagined! Action is the key! Start now and just do it!
As Tony Robbins says…we are either growing or we are dying…so lets keep moving forward and grow!

Often times we get caught up in worrying about what other people think, making other people happy, satisfying others, all of which we think will ultimately make us happy, when in reality… We aren’t doing anything that WE want at all.
We are simply holding our own life hostage, while we begin to live our life for other people, and not for us. We often fall onto other peoples accomplishments, and other peoples lives in general as to what we should be doing, we begin to live our lives trying to match what others are doing… Whether it be buying a house, getting a nice vehicle, having a baby, getting married, going on a trip, being ultra fit as a runner, body builder… Any of those things, it’s very easy to start to want another persons life, another persons timeline.
Sometimes we say to ourselves “I need to do this” … “I should be doing that”, as we see the happiness on social media or down the street, sometimes we start to believe that the life we imagined we would have seems to be being lived by someone else, and it’s easy to fall into jealousy.
What to do about this?
The only answer I can give you, is once we stop trying to live someone else’s life and start living our own… It opens so many doors to life that we never even knew existed. The most important thing is NOT to make other people proud, to do what you think others want, or trying to compete with a fancy car, a baby or a bikini body. Discussing this reminds me of a quote “Don’t compare your chapter 1 to someone else’s chapter 10”.
We all get started at different times, find our passions at different times, meet the person of our dreams at different times. The time spent not with that person, or with those moments isn’t wasted time, it’s time to grow, time to live and most importantly it’s time to make yourself proud of guess who… YOURSELF!
Why is it important to be proud of yourself?
Once we begin to be proud of who we are, it changes everything. We stop looking for other peoples lives to mimick, and simply live our own. I know we all struggle with this, but the best thing you can do, is begin to live your life. It doesn’t matter who is proud of you, once you are proud of yourself… It begins. Life begins.

Yes it is possible for even a granny like me to get abs!!
Working at strengthening and toning the belly muscles like a beast as well as staying away from processed and junk food makes all the difference!! My goal is to have flat toned abs and be rid of this puffy muffin top by the time my 91 day challenge is over…I know I can do it! I am a dang determined granny with a vision anyways…LOL
Determination and a vision for yourself is what will get you the furthest in life in every area! I have learned this one by practising it …and it totally works! 😁
What is your vision for yourself? Do you have a health and fitness vision, a financial vision, a business vision, a time freedom or family related vision? Having a strong vision you truly believe in makes anything possible!! Do you believe this?
