*** Metamorphosis Monday ***

I have really been beating myself up lately because I know my actions have not been in line with my goals. I have allowed life to take over & get me frazzled. We all have the same 24 hours in a day & it’s my choice how I spend that time. Thankfully I recognize when I’m off track & I can choose to make better choices to regain my focus.
Today I challenge you to examine your actions. Have your decision been lining up with your goals?!?!?!??? If not,….. this moment & this reminder are the perfect opportunity for you to make a shift! Get back on track. Keep your goals in front of you. What you want doesn’t just magically appear. You must carve the path!

There will always be an excuse!

So…… what do you do when the smoke detector had you up at 3 AM & you really don’t want to do you’re workout?! You spike your hair, drink some E&E and do it anyways!!! There will always be an excuse.There will always be sleepless nights, laundry to get done, work that needs your attention. It will always be someone’s birthday. They’re will always be memorial day, cookouts, baby showers. There’s always going to be temptations in the break room or cup cakes after Timmy’s baseball game.
There will ALWAYS be excuses to cheat & skip it because life doesn’t stop so you can crush your goals. So you must make a decision, draw a line in the sand with yourself & decide what you truly want out of this one life you get.
It’s your life & you are in control of every decision. Choose to design a life you love, not one you regret.

No Limits

*~* People will argue for limitations they have placed on their own life *~*
Don’t limit yourself because you believe you can’t achieve your dreams!!!! Success is directly related to mindset. Tackle the habits that are sabotaging you. Tear down the stories you tell yourself of why you can’t. Replace it with the TRUTH that you are built for greatness!

Beachbody provides a better way!

So here goes………..
When I met my husband 4 years ago, he was a big man & I love EVERY BIT of him just the way he was!!! Health & nutrition where always very important to me & I vowed not to bug him about his weight. Last year about this time he SCARED THE CRAP out of me by having to spend a day in the hospital. HOLY I DON’T WANT TO BE A WIDOW!!! The end result was high blood pressure & high blood sugar/Pre-diabetic do to years of not taking his eating habits seriously & lack of moving his body!!! At that point he was pretty shook up & made the decision on his own that he didn’t want to spend the rest of his life on medication.

We both worked around 60 hours a week in the mortgage industry. We have three kids who are all in extra curricular activities. We were traveling every other weekend with travel ball with our oldest daughter so we were eating a lot of hotel breakfast & sandwiches. Finding a THE TIME to make a change was impossible!!! Or so I thought! We had a gym membership for a year & maybe used it twice. What a waste.

Enter side stage – T25……. T25 is a workout program we could do TOGETHER from home! & it was only 25 minutes a day. I gained energy & endurance yes…… but the real success story was the fact he lost 40lbs in 8 WEEKS. In 8 WEEKS time he CAME OFF ALL THE MEDICATION just from exercise, one shake a day & somewhat changing his eating habbits. Let’s be real you can’t change that over night. I am so proud of him & even more proud of the fact that he has KEPT OFF EVERY POUND!!!! He has not gain one pound back this whole time!!!

*************************************MY WHY********************************
When I saw there was an option to make a change & it was DOABLE…… It fit into our crazy lifestyle…… I felt I had to help as many people as I can do the same!!!!! We don’t have to AGE EARLY! We don’t have to live with DISEASE!!! We don’t have to take 45 medications every day for the rest of our lives!!! There is a BETTER WAY! I want the world to know!!!

Sorry for yelling but I’m kind of passionate about your health! I am so thankful for this opportunity. Looking great is fantastic but ADDING YEARS TO YOUR LIFE is way better!!!

Breathing or LIVING?! You choose!

I can & I will

Tell yourself you can! Tell yourself it is easy. You already have everything you need inside of you. It’s up to you to believe it.
