I am a simple southern girl with a passion for fitness! I am 70 lbs. lighter and striving to be in the best shape of my life. I also strive to help others reach their health and fitness goals as a personal trainer and Independent Team Beachbody Coach. Are you ready to trim, tone, and tighten your body?! Then Let's GO!!
Knew today was a double down day so I just bit the bullet and #PUSHEDPLAY! I did Ab Intervals and Lower Focus back to back so there was definitely no slacking here! But there WAS a lot of #SWEAT! Feeling good and ready to #STRETCH it out and just #RELAX tomorrow! Hope you’re all having a great weekend so far!

Week Two - Day Two of Focus T2 is in the Books! In all honesty, yesterday was a bust for me. I was busy doing housework all day and while that’s totally no excuse, I was just tired by the time I got done last night and chose to take a day off. But that’s my perogative and I know good and well I’ll make it up on Saturday anyway! LoL! So it was on to Day 2 today which was Total Body Circuit. It’s sad that every time I start the workouts I always tell myself, ‘It’s JUST 25 minutes! You can DO THIS!?!’

I am SUCH a proud Momma toight!! Not only did my daughter stick it out to do the whole 25 minutes of Focus T25 with her Daddy and I tonight, but my Little Guy even got in on the action and let me tell y’all he is a workout FOOL!!! Look out Shaun T because this Little Man may just give you a run for your money when he’s older!! LoL!! He got WITH IT tonight!! I almost lost my concentration because I was just completely amazed at how awesome he was!! I’m telling you there is no prouder moment in a Fitness Momma’s life than this right here y’all!! Everything I have done for the past few years just totally came to roost tonight and I couldn’t be HAPPIER!! — Feeling - Ecstatic.

Time’s not an excuse when it’s just 25 minutes, right? EVERYBODY should have time for THAT! Gotta admit Speed 1.0 had me scared. I was expecting it to be much worse than Cardio but Munch and I actually preferred it a lot better! It could just wind up being one of my favorite Alpha workouts! But my favorite part will ALWAYS be the 2-minute cooldown! Can I get a WHOOP! WHOOP! from my T25 crowd?! LoL!

I was craving some protein after Total Body Circuit tonight so this was my solution! Grilled turkey burgers! I’m loving the Pop and Cook onions I found in the freezer section at the grocery too. It makes cooking so much easier and no more crying as I chop up onion! Best find EVER! Best turkey burger EVER! Hope you’ve all had a Happy Hump Day! :)

Going strong with Focus T25! My faithfuls were by my side (or rather in front of me) tonight as I got Ab Intervals done before we headed out to do some#fireworks! Always remember, #consistency is the key no matter what you’ve got going on around you. That’s the beauty of #T25 folks! It’s just 25 minutes a day! Who DOESN’T have time for THAT?!?! ;-)

And this is why you will always see me post health and fitness related information because I care about the well being of each and every one of you! For example, did you know there’s a big difference between being skinny and being healthy? You can actually be extremely skinny AND extremely unhealthy at the same time. It’s a condition known as ‘skinny fat’ that not a lot of people are even aware of. Also, there are two different kinds of fat. An external kind and an internal kind. One can KILL you! Don’t take your health for granted my friends. Let me help you get on the right path to a healthier lifestyle TODAY before it’s too late! I’m just an inbox message away!

Must say I read this and LOVED this:

Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently.
