Believe in YOURSELF! Your success depends on it.  What you believe eventually becomes reality.

Good morning and happy “NOT MONDAY!” I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend, and no matter if you got your workouts and nutrition in or not, make today a GREAT start to the week. Holiday weekends are tough, I know, they are for me too.  But you don’t have to throw all of your progress out the window.  Even if you binged on food you can get back on track.  Just focus! Focus, want it, be positive and believe in yourself! It’s going to be a great week!

My goal is to be FIT.  And if that means my quads are huge and it takes a squat dance to get into some of my jeans, so be it.  If that means my arms make me rethink anything with really tight sleeves, so be it.  If that means that the number on my scale goes up instead of down, so be it.  Fit and healthy is what I want to be, not thin.  Not thin for the sake of “Being Skinny.”  I want fit, I want healthy, I want strong, I don’t care what the scale says, how “big” my legs, arms, back, shoulders or butt are, as long as I’m fit, healthy and strong. 

It’s time for me to stop idealizing “thin” and admire FIT!  You should try too :)

I <3 Squats!  I love pushing heavy heavy weight! 

You should too! :) 

PiYo Review – Week 1

PiYo Review: What to expect in week #1


Today is Sunday, August 31. I have officially wrapped up my very first week of Beachbody & Chalene Johnson’s PiYo program. As promised, I am here to give my full PiYo review, week by week. In case you didn’t know, PiYo is a fun, funky blend of Pilates, Yoga, strength, flexibility, cardio and body weight training. There is no equipment except for a yoga…

Hell yes!  Fit people have developed a LIFESTYLE!

Reblog if you hit your workout hard today! :) 

I did!

I love this!!  HAVE PATIENCE! Work hard, but don’t expect INSTANT results.  It didn’t take you a week to get out of shape, why would you think it will take you a week to get into your best shape?  It takes TIME, DEDICATION, HARD WORK AND NEVER GIVING UP!

Don’t run from your fears, FACE THEM.

Whether it’s in the gym, on the street, in your living room or on the field…TRAIN HARD! :)  Do what you gotta do, do what needs to be done!  Get it in, get it done and be PROUD of all you accomplish! You are amazing!
