One more day before…

I am new to this BeachBody thing and I’m learning I love everything about it, especially the excitement of starting a new program.

Monday May 2nd is the day I chose to begin my new adventure with BeachBody. I will be starting the 60 day program Master’s Hammer and Chisel.

The package alone is pretty scary and the calendar looks even scarier….

I’m so ready to take on this new challenge and I can’t wait to be able to post the before and after photo’s!

Life, Love and Happiness 💕

I’ve taken a moment to step back from my fitness journey and live life to the fullest, but now I’m back, running full speed ahead. The journey I’ve started with BeachBody is absolutely wonderful and I love every minute of it, but sometimes you need to take life’s opportunities and run with them. I never stopped completely, just took a moment to slow down and breathe… And I have to say it was awesome and I have no regrets. I was able to explore new areas, visit some old places, that I hold dear to my heart, and just overall relax.

I’ve come a long way with embracing my healthier lifestyle and the changes I’ve made stuck with me this time, yes I did splurg every now and then, but I never went crazy as I have in the past. For the first time in my life, I feel as if I’m building a healthy habit and I’m loving every minute of the journey.
I’ve jumped back into the extreme and I don’t feel as if I’ve skipped a beat! The 21 day fix and the 21 day fix extreme are killer workouts that prepare you for anything live throws your way. 🙂 💕

locking-arms-accountability

Today, was the first day of the accountability group I’m co-hosting with my coach. I’m so excited to get to be given this oppourtinity to partner up with her, to run my first of many groups.

So far, we have a great group of girls from all over the US and I’m excited to have all of them with us during this 60 day journey. I can’t wait to get to know everyone and see the results at the end of the 60 days!!!

We’re always looking for more people who are interested in changing their lives and the lives of others. Please reach out if you too want to join this amazing group! 🙂

Day 1 – Complete ❤

Sunday, Meal Prep Day

Yesterday, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen. Meal prep isn’t the easiest thing to do, but it’s so worth it in the end. I love having meals ready immediantly when I want them. Helps me stay on target and not reach for the easy junk food.

I made Curried Chicken and Dijon Mustard Chicken Salad. 🙂 Recipies below if you’re interested.

Round 2! 21 Day Fix Extreme

Yesterday, I started my second round of the 21 Day Fix Extreme.


I’m setting some goals for the next 21 Day:

  • Less modifications
  • Active during the entire minute…
  • Less breaks
  • Focus on my core and flattening my tummy.
  • Be the best person I can be and a great role model for my first accountability group!

During my first round, I was resting way more than I actually need to and my goal this time is to push through no matter what gets in my way. My body is much stronger than my mind thinks it is, just look at the picture of my arm from Friday. I’m still shocked I have some muscle! In case you missed it, Parties, Tattoos and Changes

I really need to push myself and no longer make excuses. I can’t wait to see what this next round has in store for me, and I’m excited to figure out my next step in my fitness journey after this round is complete.

21 Day Fix Extreme Complete!


The before picture is from the very beginning, before a round of 21 Day Fix, and the after is after one round of the 21 Day Fix Extreme.

So much has changed during the past 42 days, way more than I ever could’ve imagined. Not only am I a little lighter, my hair is a little lighter too. 😛 But seriously, I’m mentally and physically stronger and it’s the greatest feeling in the world. I’m so happy I began this journey and this is by far not the end. I plan on another round of the 21 Day Fix Extreme and my new goals for the round will do less modifiers and take less breaks. I’ll continue spinning and do my best to keep up with daily walks to reach my goal of 10,000 steps per day.

Happy Easter!

Setting Goals… is Tough

 I am by no means an expert on any of this, I’m only sharing what I’ve recently come to realize as I work to improve myself. I hope to provide inspiration to those who need it. 🙂

When you’re looking to change your life it’s very important to set GOOD goals for yourself. What I mean by good goals. Goals that are obtainable, realistic and not too easy to reach.

When I started my first round of the 21 day fix, my coach asked the members of my first accountability group to write down some short term and long term goals that each one of us wanted to reach during the first challenge. This task was harder for me than I thought it should be. Initially my goal was to get in shape. But why?!? I didn’t realize until that moment, that during my entire life I never had a real reason.

After giving it lots of thought, I completed the project by writting down my long term and short term goals and posting them for the group to see. I’m so glad I completed the excersize. It forced me to come up with real reasons why I wanted to be in shape and by sharing them I was held accountable to reach them. I’m still working towards my goals, but the real plus is I haven’t given up as I’ve done several times in the past.

Sharing my goals helped me realize that I wanted more than just to look good. I wanted to feel good, I want to be strong, and I don’t want to let anything to get in my way and stop me from being successful.

I’m so thankful for being a part of a group of people who are all working towards a common goal!

 

Week 2 – 21 Day Fix Extreme – Complete

I know everyone’s probably tired of hearing me talk about this program but I’m too happy with my progress to keep it all to myself!

It works! It really does and it’s so easy to incorporate it into busy lifestyles! I can’t wait to share the after pictures as soon as I complete the third week. 🙂

The second week was much better than my first! I didn’t have the right equipment during the first week but my new resistance bands arrived just in time for this weeks workouts. What a difference that made…

Pilates was a struggle again, but I’ve make great improvements within a week. I did less modifiers, took less breaks and kept up with everyone else. It’s a great feeling to see these improvements.

On to the third week of Extreme! I can’t wait to see the results in the end!
