We did it hahahahahhaha
So I would have to say I have been in a bit of a funk this week. Yep thats right the person that writes about moving your ass just did not want to. I snoozed my alarm every single day this week and I just kind of feel blah. I tried to talk myself out of every single workout and just want to stuff my face and sit on my ass.
So what did I do? I did it anyway. My job is a motivator and how can I do that if I am not doing anything myself? I can’t that would not be “fair” . So I got off my ass and worked out any way. Didn’t enjoy it. Nope not one bit. Watched the clock the entire time, or found myself face planted lying on the floor. hahaha I’m not kidding. I did that during the challenge today while doing one of the multiple sets of push ups. I also know how I feel when I skip it. Not a good feeling to be disappointed in yourself.
I DID IT! woohoo! Seriously but when i woke up this morning, I was like hmmmm there is no workout on my schedule… It is amazing once you form a habit how easy it is to stick to it.
Did you know that they say that it takes 21 days to form a habit, and it just so happens that The 21 Day Fix and Fix Extreme are that long! Coincidence? It is way easier to wrap your mind around 21 day programs instead of 90. Not that I will never do a 90 day one again. But your like yeah I totally got this. PSSH
So the meal plan, was I perfect with this? NO (HUMAN HERE) I really did try out of the whole 21 days I cheated 3 times. One of those was EPIC. An entire day, the hubster and I went away with out kids… I got a little crazy not having to share any of my foods. (Parents know what Im talking about! Being able to eat an organic honey cream filled chocolate while laying in bed without anyone asking for some, is a rare delicacy I took advantage… Alright I went overboard.) I followed the count down to competition a total of 5 or 6 days during. The amount you eat during that is insane. But you deplete your carbs so it can make you a little groggy and crabby. I started to do it yesterday but we went to disney on ice and I took my girls out to dinner. No I did not cheat, but I had to tweak the Competition meal plan. I got a cobb salad sans egg and tomato (don’t like them). This added a orange and a blue. WTF am I talking about, right? Well fixers understand the color thing… It is ok to adjust sometimes so your plan fits your life! This is a lifestyle change. If you want to stick with it, manage it well!
The workouts, Did they get easier? No not one bit. I got better, each time i did one. I was able to push a little harder or add more weight, take less breaks, not die… Hello Non-Scale Victories!! hahahahaha awesome right! It took me all 3 weeks to get used to that pilates with the bands. I finally was not a tangled mess on the last one! I ended up adding more weights to leg day week 2. Which made it harder.
If you are doing these workouts and you can’t keep up, switch to the modifier, go down in weights, drop the weights completely. Do what YOU need to do to make it through without killing yourself. You know what you can handle!
Now for the results DRUM ROLL PLEASE…
I recommend this workout for, fix graduates, people that like the more intense and extreme programs. I would not recommend for beginners!

I did this post a couple days ago on my Facebook!
But I wanted to show you that it is not always easy to stick to your plan… That life does not always go the way you want it to.
” Every little thing that i do goes back to my why… You see today I’m tired my little one ended up sleeping in bed with me last nights which means crappy night of sleep for mom. I wanted to set today up as a wash start fresh tomorrow. But how is that going to help me reach my goals? Its not so I push forward and follow my schedule. I can rest later.”
Go back to your WHY! What is your why? Its the reason you started to change in the first place. It is your DRIVE behind your journey. As you evolve that can change too.
Its Super Bowl Sunday this weekend! You know what that means? Parties!!!! So you have made a New Years Resolution to get healthy and you’ve been sticking to it… Right? So you want to stay committed! Here are some tips to be successful.
First off I am going to say this, its one day. One day will not kill your momentum, it will however be a slight set back. So go to the parties, drink some beers or whatever you like, have some snacks, and some fun. Get right back on track Monday! Don’t make a lifestyle change hold you back from enjoying your life. Its the SUPER BOWL!
Whatever you do, DO NOT skip your meals before you go, because you are going to treat yourself. I used to do this all the time. Which was dumb, go to a party starving and either get wasted after one drink or devour the snack table with out breathing. You will be wanted back at every party… Skipping meals also slows down your metabolism. So what do you do before hand. You stay on point eat clean and get ready to go.
With alcohol did you know the lower the proof the lower the calories per ounce? So stick to your lower proof vodka. 80 proof is 64 cals per 1 oz. Watch your mixers. “Your resolve can be really strong when you are sober, but after a few drinks, you may find yourself mindlessly overeating the nuts, another slice of pizza, or whatever food is within striking distance,” says Christine Gerbstadt, RD. Try flavored vodka with sparkling water.
Light beers mean lower carbs and cal and usually are pretty close in proof.
Drink water in between of your booze. Not only will this lower the amount of calories you are getting, but greatly lessen your hangover! (SCORE)

Do not sit or stand by the snack table. If you do you have a bigger chance of mindlessly eating. Make a plate and walk away. I said to enjoy yourself not pig out and make yourself sick and disappointed in yourself. No better party then when your in self loathing… (<<<<<<enter sarcasm <<<<<<)

Enjoy the game. or at the very least the commercials HA!
I’ve spent a good bit of my life trying to fit in. Never really feeling great about myself and unsure of where I wanted to go. I entered motherhood at 17 while all my friends were looking hot, living it up, and going to college. I was raising a baby. I’ve been trying to conform and fit in or be in the background forever. Until Beachbody.
Now I don’t want to fit in… I want to STAND OUT! I want to make a difference. Helping people is something I’ve always wanted to do. Helping them Stand out is even better!
I couldn’t be more proud of my team. I am looking to Mentor 2-3 ladies who know they have a bigger calling, love to help others, want to create FREEDOM in their life. (and get some pretty awesome fitness results.)
