That means shorts, swimsuits, and tank tops. Mornings at the park, afternoons at the pool, and weekends at the Lakes 🕶⛱👙
.
Are you ready!?! Did you have goals to lose weight and get healthy and be confident this summer?!? Are you willing to make a change and work your butt off to make it happen this time and stick?!?
.
My 22 Minute Hard Corps Exclusive TEST group starts tomorrow! 22 minute workouts- everybody has time for that– NO excuses!!!
.
This program will bring you right up to Memorial Day with a super easy to follow nutrition guide, motivating accountability group, and ME as your coach
.
I only have ONE spot left– message me to hear the details!!!!

Ps- I have never seen definition like this in my arms ever– this has been my goal since Day 1. It’s not always about weight loss- sometimes it’s about just looking in the mirror and being darn proud of what you see!!‪#‎hardworkpaysoff‬ ‪#‎noshortcuts‬ ‪#‎workforit‬

The Part-Time Job That Changed My Life

There aren’t many nights I work away from home- conferences are an exception of course. I’m very thankful for a hubby who can handle single parenting for a couple of nights and also Face time for making me feel like I am right there for all the action! But I am more grateful for the chance to not have to work away from home most nights.

I always used to have some sort of part-time job. I’m one that needs to busy and also benefits from the extra income. After Kinslee was born, the idea of being gone at night for a part-time job was absolutely out of the question for me, but I struggled without that little extra cushion of extra money.

ENTER- Health and Fitness Coaching!!!! It was seriously the answer to all my objections and problems-

~I don’t want to be gone at night/weekends
*Work on your couch while your daughter plays and sleeps

~I need to stay accountable to my own health and fitness goals
*In order to motivate my challengers, I have to stay motivated and work on myself

~I don’t look good enough, feel good enough, am good enough in general to do anything
*Reading personal development and gaining the confidence, I always had somewhere, and letting it shine!!!

~I am a mom now, I don’t think I’ll ever have any friends again
*I talk to my challengers and coaches EVERY. SINGLE. DAY and we get together for girls’ nights out more than I ever imagined!!

~I really need to pay off my student loans and vehicle payments- I want financial freedom
*This opportunity has allowed me to double those payments from the amount of effort I have put into building my business.

I never expected something like this to happen to me, but I have been so blessed by this opportunity in more ways than one! Yes I’m busy, yes I work hard, yes I push and want to succeed- fitting it in all those cracks of my daily life as a mom, wife, and teacher. It is possible to expect more and get more out of your life. It is possible to genuinely help others and grow yourself as well. Financial freedom is possible and will happen for my family.

Anything is truly possible…

Week 2 (official) COMPLETED!!!!

Week 2 (official) is a wrap folks!! I did move my rest day around to Saturday and finished out the week on Sunday! I promise though, on week 3, I will get my rest day back on track! It feels really good to get through Week 2- sometimes I think that second week can be the hardest! Your motivation may be slipping a little, and you have to dig deep to motivate and re-commit!

First off: I wanted to share my accountability pictures for the end of Week 2.

So, I could nit-pick and tear apart this pictures- BUT I’m not going to do that. I am going to TALK UP MY GUNS!!!!! Seriously, from the first day I signed up, May 15th, 2015- I wanted to shape my arms. I wanted guns and definition! And FINALLY- I can say that I have guns and it shows!!!! So yes, there are other body parts that aren’t where I want them to be, but I see GUNS!!!! 😀 😀 😀

Other things I noticed about myself and the program this week– I am in LOVE with 22 minute workouts!!! Besides the time factor- I mean 22 minutes is INSANELY fast– but those 22 minutes pack a BIG punch!! I figured, ok 22 minutes- I’ll probably barely break a sweat— WRONG!!!!! Those 22 minutes are short but INTENSE!! The whole time.. Tony only gives you a 22 second break in between each round- ironic right?! So not only are we pushing play for a short amount of time, but that time is used with a purpose and nothing is wasted!!!

Cardio is still my weak point- but I think it’s because I know I need to work on it so much that’s why I dread it. But to be honest, the tempo on Resistance training days is pretty quick as well!! I’m breathing just as hard then! Here are some pictures from my official Week 2.

Week 3 Goals- NAIL my eating plan!!! This week is going to be tough- SPRING BREAK!!!! We’ve got a little family get-away planned and birthday and Easter celebrations to be had.. But I am going to make a plan, stick to it, and use my Shakeology to help me along the way!!!

Make it a GREAT week everybody!!!!! ❤
