Beat the Weight and Perimenopausal symptoms (So worth it!)

eddeb9f6-0643-4c5f-8e09-fae09121ca3e

An early morning cardio core workout really got the sweat moving and the core burning! These exercise sliders are the total bomb!👍🏻. Feeling accomplished today with this workout. Officially done day 23 of 80✅ of current challenge!

I remember when I was battling with my weight over the years… 190-200 lb most of the time on my 5’9” frame was too much to carry around! My knees and my back suffered big time and I felt like I would never get better. I went through SO many diets like atkins, Somers, Mediterranean and so many more in a yo-yo fashion and was never ever able to keep the weight off!

I thank god for the day 3 years ago that I realized how truly out of shape and miserable I was! I did some cartwheels on the lawn then suffered with severe pain for more than 2 weeks after that! At that time, I knew I was about I become a new grandma and did NOT want to be a fat, lazy, boring and out of shape granny! No way! I wanted energy and to be fun to run around and play with!

I discovered p90x through a friend and ended up losing over 40 pounds and keeping it off by using superfood nutrition and by staying on track with different fitness challenges and nutrition plans to keep things interesting! (I get bored easily) …I even started running and did a number of 10 km runs and my knee and back pain got completely better!

Getting into shape and losing weight totally changed my life!! I am now pain free, have energy to run with my grandson and am keeping the weight off. It not only transformed me on the outside, but the biggest changes are on the inside! Being happy all the time is a great way to live!  …and totally getting rid of all those perimenopausal symptoms this way!

If you are  looking for a much better way to get into shape and feel the best you have ever felt in your life, message me and I can help you get started. Seriously, the accountability, support and success with this program is totally worth it!

Health and Fitness for You (Yes You!)

Day 10 of 80 of current fitness challenge is officially complete!✅.

These workouts are definitely powerful at toning and sculpting the entire body from head to toe!  Totally loving this 80 day challenge!   After doing 60 minutes of booty work yesterday just using an exercise band, I am amazed at how sore those butt muscles are today!

The biggest challenge for me in any program is to follow the nutrition system for a program 100%.   So far, I am keeping up with the nutrition plan about 60% but I need to improve on this.   For the next 10 days, I am going to try setting some short term nutrition goals and see if that helps me out. The nutrition plan I am on now with the 80-day challenge is designed so that you eat certain food types every 3 hours during the day.  I am finding it challenging to stay on point being on the road doing house calls since I have no way of heating up a meal in my car. Thus, I am feeling kind of stuck having cold food choices which I am getting tired of.  I have to find some new cold food options for myself to keep me going!  What is your biggest challenge in sticking with a program?   What are some good cold healthy food choices (besides salad)?

I have 70 more days to go to complete this program. I know I can do it! The support and accountability group we have around us is amazing! What are you doing to improve your health and fitness? Are you looking for a new program that will get you to your goal?

“Decide. Commit. Succeed”. Is what our program is about and people are getting great results with the support network we have for participants.  There are programs for every level of participant from beginner to advanced.  From tai chi and yoga to muscle building, toning programs and intensive cardio.  We have room for you in our program to help you change your life if you are feeling ready?

I heard a quote recently that is really helping me a lot as I go along in my health and fitness journey.  The quote says “Focus on Winning the Day”.  This quote was a good one that woke me up to really focusing on being successful and doing my best for today so that you can be proud of what you have been able to accomplish today.   Sometimes if you focus too far in the future about what you “need” or “want” to accomplish over 3 months, it may be challenging to stick to the plan.   A daily goal of winning the day seems more satisfying and doable as I go along.  What do you think?

Put more UMPH into things (and be happier and more successful!)

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”!! 😁😁

Believe in You (and Your Life Will Change)

img_3355

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!!

Kick Ass the Fun Way (..and Lose Weight)

Have fun while working out and get amazing results!
Have fun while working out and get amazing results!

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 😉

Beginners Have to Start Somewhere (The Time is Now! Starts May 29)

I got my power back baby!
I got my power back baby!

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!

Take Action Today (To Achieve Quickly!)

img_3089

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!
