Let’s get CPT certified!!

Officially on my way to becoming a Certified Personal Trainer! I’ve been thinking about it for years and constantly get asked if I am a trainer, well, only a matter of time until I can say yes!

My Trouble Spot

Everyone has that part of their body that they don’t like no matter what. Mine used to be my legs. They are big and muscular no matter what workouts I do. Now that I have come to terms with that, my abs are where I seem to never get results. I can clearly see my…

Discouraged

I have not been as good about eating as I should and I feel it! No point in working hard in the gym and wasting it on bad foods! I need to really watch what I eat and be better about what fuels my body. I’m going to keep my food journal up this week…

Winter in Michigan.

Started out the day stuck on the side of the road, missed work after only two weeks of starting, and still have to deal with my flat tire problem…that’s life I guess! Even though my day has been rough I am determined to have a productive rest of the day. Step #1: DIY honey, cinnamon,…

6 Week Challenge!

I signed up for the 6 week challenge yesterday and took my “before” pictures this morning. I am going to send them into the 200k transformation website and see what kind of progress I can make 🙂

Ready for the New Year?

I found this wonderful site through Google this morning.

Progress check point

I hope everyone has been keeping pictures of their progress. Even though yesterday was not a good food day, I am still motivated to have a nice flat stomach so here is the near end of the month picture!

Day 17

Happy Christmas Eve everyone! I am feeling very good this morning; woke up and got my work out in early, going to finish up my shopping after work and then getting ready for our party tonight! Don’t worry if you didn’t get a workout in today, especially if you have been eating clean with me…

Holiday Countdown!

I am going to challenge everyone to be on their best behavior for the next 2 1/2 days! How hard can that be, right? Don’t eat white flour, high fat, and high sugar foods (or foods with added sugar) until Christmas Eve. So, that means eggs, oatmeal, and fruit for breakfast and lots of leafy…

Get ready!

Tomorrow is the first of the month and it’s time to start an abs by New Years challenge! Take a picture tonight or tomorrow morning and we will take another in 31 days to see the progress! Get ready for a nice flat stomach and some definition!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I know it might be hard to get a workout in today, but try this video if you have time https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrB4CjpC-F8 Another option is to get a quick cardio workout in before your shower. Try something like this: 20 jumping jacks 10 burpees 20 crunches 10 pushups 20 jump squats Repeat 3x’s…
