Get fitness results in 21 days

What if I told you that you could get fit without giving up wine and chocolate or your money back?  Click here

I have done several rounds of 21 Day Fix as well as 21 Day Fix Extreme and LOVE it. The workout is only 30 minutes and easy to fit into my schedule. The meal plan and tracking tools are by far my favorite!

Don’t compare your progress to anyone 

Good morning ‪#‎fitfam‬ . I want to encourage you to go for it today. We all are at different stages of our journey 🚂. But, we won’t get to our destination  by making excuses. You may be at a different place than I am but that’s okay. Hard work is part of the process . You can make excuses 💬💭 or you can make it happen 💥. Which will it be?

Make Me Your Coach

I started a journey 3 years ago when I was finished with my doctoral degree and in a pretty dark place. I decided to tackle life and poured myself into a group that I engaged with every single day. The rest is history!

I am a better mom, wife, employee, business owner & friend. How I feel in my skin impacts EVERYTHING! It was the BEST thing I ever did for myself and my family and that is why I do what I do. Everyone deserves that feeling!

Homemade soft scrub

I love cleaning with natural products, not only because most store bought chemicals cause my asthma to flare up, but also because with natural cleaning solutions, I don’t get nasty toxins seeping into my skin and body. This soft scrub recipe is one of my absolute FAVORITE natural cleaning recipes. I coat my kitchen sink with a little bit, let it sit for 10 minutes and gently scrub it clean. It can be used in so many other places too! Here is what you’ll need:

3/4 rounded cup baking soda

1/4 cup liquid Castile soap

1 T distilled water

1 T vinegar

8 drops doTERRA lemon essential oil

5 drops doTERRA lime essential oil

In a bowl, combine baking soda and Castile soap with a wire whisk. Stir in water, then vinegar. Add essential oils and whisk until smooth. Consistency should be a soft paste. Store in an air tight container out of the sun. Happy cleaning!

5 Keys to HAPPINESS

happiness

1 REALIZE that happiness is a choice… You can make the decision to “be happy” each day.

2 Remember that happiness is CONTAGIOUS. Make someone smile, and the good feelings come right back to you.

3 Be GRATEFUL for the little things in life that are free. Make a list, and add to it each morning.

4 BELIEVE that ultimately everything happens for a reason. Acceptance leads the way to happiness.

5 Give away some COURAGE every day! When you encourage another to “keep going,” “hang in there,” or ” believe in your dreams,” you will find an unending source of happiness.

No excuses!

Positive thoughts for weight loss

Image

 

Do you remember the words to a popular song of the 1980’s, “Don’t Worry Be Happy?” Well there is more power to that sentiment than you may have ever realized.

Positive thinking plays a significant role in your weight loss efforts. Beating yourself up with negative thoughts can throw you off course and trigger old bad habits that will take you off course such as going off your diet, overeating and skipping your exercise routine. Positive thoughts, on the other hand, can increase your motivation and energy level.

It is important to then make a conscious effort to transform your thoughts. It may be true that you often cannot overcome your food cravings or stick to your diet. However, if there are times when you are able to stand strong, then focus on those moments and celebrate the triumphs. Maybe you put less sugar in your coffee today and said no to a second slice of pizza. Giving attention to the positive things will help to create greater self esteem and motivation to continue with your weight loss efforts.

One of the ways that a negative attitude can prevail when you start to make healthy choices is if you have set unreasonable goals for yourself. Trying to exist on an extremely low-calorie diet or setting your weekly weight loss goal at an unattainable number often sets you up for failure.

To increase weight loss success, set achievable goals. Losing one or two pounds per week is a reasonable goal and can generally be achieved without extreme measures. Weigh yourself weekly; every week that you reach your goal, acknowledge your success. This will perpetuate positive thinking. Before long, you’ll find that your motivation and energy have increased, and the pounds are coming off.
