85 Days Until The Ab Reveal

March 26th 2013
85 Days Until the Ab Reveal I pledged to post every Tuesday about my ab progress. Wednesday we hopped on a plane to Disney World. Thankfully it was a Beachbody trip so they had healthy food choices and we packed many supplements and snacks. Somehow wine, ice cream and French fries still made it into my mouth. Shocking! I allowed myself this final trip to have a few things. I don’t know why I “reward” myself with unhealthy food when it doesn’t reward me. The last supper? Thin crust Continue Reading >

A year in review

December 17th 2011
A year in review The last 12 months have been great. Ups and downs but mostly ups. I was talking to a friend, who is now one of my best friends, and she asked me what we were doing a year ago. In December 2010 I has just signed up to be a Team Beachbody coach and had zero clue what was about to happen in my life. Joined a 90 Days to Diamond group and that is where I met my friend Rhonda. She is like a sister. It is nuts. We are twins separated at birth. We share the same passion for things and Continue Reading >

The Gym vs Beachbody at Home

August 5th 2011
Day 26 of Insanity. Check. Had to get that out of the way. Almost 1/2 way through. Last week I hurt my calf and took it easy. I missed one Insanity workout and went to the gym to use their equipment and sit in the dry sauna. As I sat there sweating I thought of several things. 1) Why am I sitting in a 180 degree room when I can just go outside in the Texas sun and sweat. We are on the 34th consecutive day of over 100 degree temperatures. 2) Why do I choose the gym or Beachbody? What a Continue Reading >

Insanity Day 20 -Oh yes! I’m still here

July 30th 2011
Insanity Day 20. Yes. I'm still here. I don't make the time to blog as much as I should. People tell me how much my blog helps them. I have a full time job and I coach part time with Team Beachbody. Blogging is toward the bottom of my priorites. I'm working to push it higher and elimniate things like watching The Bachelorette. I am feeling awesome. My calf is a little sore today. Yesterday I was not into the workout. I was tired and just going through the motions. That does happen. I'm real. Continue Reading >

Insanity – Day 9 & 10

July 20th 2011
Back feels much better after a few trips to acupunture. Vertigo is basically gone too. The monthly bill arrived so I'm a little emotional and not in the mood to work out. Instead I push through. As Shaun T says: I'm not trying to hurt you, I'm trying to make you better. Here I am on Day 9 going through the warm up of Pure Cardio Day 10 was this morning. I pretty much popped out of bed. Amazed that I did because I've been so tired lately. Made it through Plyometric Cardio Circuit. Tomorrow, Continue Reading >

Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit – Day 2

July 12th 2011
Well here we are. Day 2 of Insanity. I made it through the warm up with ease. As easy as it can be. I was sweating and doing it and pushing myself. I usually have to stop but this time I didn't. I dug deep and made it. My back is still hurting a little but it is getting better. Plyo is one of my favorites. It wasn't the first time I tried Insanity but now it is. It pushing me so hard and I usually end up crying at the end. It helps me leave it all on the floor. If I had a bad thought in my head Continue Reading >

Insanity : Fit Test Day 1

July 11th 2011
My back is still hurting from moving that 800 pound Lightining McQueen bed. The vertigo is almost gone. I picked Day 1 today for several reasons. 1) The last time I completed Insanity from Day 1 to Day 60 was last summer. 2) I have someone I connected with through Beachbody that is starting her Day 1 today. 3) I'm turning 40 in September, (a little more than 60 days) and I wanted to look and feel my best. 4) Finally wanted to follow the meal plan and prove that I could actually do it Continue Reading >

Team Beachbody Coach Summit Recap 2011 – Day 1

June 29th 2011
Its been a little over a week since I attended the Team Beachbody Coach Summit in Los Angeles. It was my first. I've been a coach about 7 months now. I bought my ticket back in February when I was less than 90 days into being a coach. My mentors and leaders highly recommended it. So glad I listened.My head is literally and figuratively still spinning from Summit. Experiencing some vertigo from the plane trip. Very odd. I've dialed back the intensity of my workouts until this goes away. Now to Continue Reading >

Countdown to Summit

June 15th 2011
I'm so excited I can barely sit still. I've been a coach since November 2010. As of today that is only 7 months. Boy how my life has changed since I said yes to being a coach with Team Beachbody. Mentally, physically, financially. All better, way better. Looking forward to meeting friends in person. Looking forward to meeting my idol Shaun T. The man that changed my body. Looking foward to feeling the unbelievable energy in the room. I wish I was better at blogging. I have a full time job and Continue Reading >

Insanity The Asylum Day 13 – Strength

May 2nd 2011
What a day today. I go to bed last night around 9:30pm and wake up to my 5 year old staring at me at 1:45 in the morning. He had a bad dream and wanted to get in our bed for a little. The next few hours were spent with his legs in my kidneys. Finally at 4:30 I carried him to his own bed. Got an hour of sleep without being kicked. It was awesome. Alarm went off at 5:45 and I had to get out of bed. Day 13 was waiting. I picked up my phone to check messages. I had 3 text messages and one told me to Continue Reading >
