February Progress


I can’t believe that it’s been one year since I really dedicated my life to eating cleaner and working out consistently. I decided to really commit after I noticed that I wasn’t getting the results I was looking for and when I did get results they were fleeting and never lasted. On this journey of health, fitness and wellness, I’m learning that you can’t do this for the here and now. You have to truly make this a lifestyle.

When I made the commitment, I started on my nutrition first. The body you want (in terms of how you look and how you feel) starts with what you put into your body. For 21 Days I was eating 100% clean and taking additional supplements to reset my body. I didn’t do one minute of exercise, yet I lost 12 pounds and saw my energy increase and some issues that I was experiencing decrease.

From February until the rest of 2013 I committed to and completed Les Mills Combat, 3rd round of Insanity, TurboFire and Focus T25. With each program I found myself getting stronger and I felt better about myself. I was now getting “off the scale” results like more confidence, sleeping better, improved posture, and looking and feeling like a million bucks.

I start P90X3 on Monday and I’m super excited about it. I’m not looking to lose weight or anything like that, just to simply challenge myself and improve my strength.

This is just a reminder that if you have a goal of being healthier and more fit, make your goal a lifestyle and it will be so much easier to get the results you are looking for!

Getting Ready for Vegas with Insanity AND Les Mills Combat

photo-1I am 8 days away from heading to Las Vegas for the Beachbody Coach Summit and I will surrounded by some of the most fit people that I know, which means that the next fews days are going to super focused on eating clean and training mean!   I am on Week 7 of Insanity, but have decided to also do Les Mills Combat for Two-A-Days!  I know that might seem a bit extreme, but we will also be doing group workouts live with some of the Celebrity Trainers and that includes Shaun T and the Dan and Rachel of Les Mills Combat.  And I want to be ready to rock and roll with the best of them.

Most people aren’t familiar with Les Mills Combat but was one of the programs that really shaped my shoulders and glutes and shredded my abs and core.  What makes the program so great is that it incorporates 6 different kinds of martial arts like boxing, kickboxing, muay thai, karate, and tae kwan do.  After I get back from Las Vegas, I will be starting a full blown program of Les Mills Combat! If you want to learn more about the program, check out the video below.  Also, this month there is a Les Mills Combat Challenge pack on sale.

Love Your Workout & Have Some Fun!

Some people don’t like to workout because it’s not fun.  I am one of those people, in everything that I do, I try to make it fun and enjoyable.  Hence, why I’m not really into running, because I tend to get bored with it.  I will chalk it up to my self diagnosed ADD.  Every time that I go for a run, even though I know that my fitness and cardio levels are pretty good and my previous background running track, I could actually do quite well running…I just don’t enjoy it.  So, I don’t do it.  However, I don’t let that stop me from finding workouts that I do enjoy.  For me, I love home fitness programs like Insanity, Les Mills Combat, P90X, and TurboFire because I can work out at home, they all have great music to keep me pumped, and I relate to the trainers.

The key is to find out what you are looking for in a workout and what will you enjoy.  I have a friend who loves to dance and loves music, but hates “working out”.  I recommended that she look for a hip hop dance class or take a salsa or belly dancing class.  She agreed and 6 months later she has dropped 20 pounds and has the cutest figure now, because she attends 4 dance classes a week at her local YMCA and she loves it.  She is burning calories doing things that she enjoys.  Think about what you enjoy that is physical and find ways to incorporate more of that into your daily life.

When you make your workouts fun, you tend to look forward to your upcoming sweat session instead of looking at it like a chore.   Go out there and find your “soulmate workout”!  If you would like to check out really great at home fitness programs, click here to learn more!
