The Last Hoorah!

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

I’m looking for TEN people who want to start the new year feeling AMAZING rather than the other 98% of the world feeling miserable. Wake up on New Year’s Day ready to dominate 2016 instead of making the same old resolution every year that doesn’t happen. The holidays are quickly approaching and while all of the parties and events are amazing, food (and lots of it) typically comes with each of them. Unfortunately many of us will put on extra weight. Like me…last year I definitely put on some pounds (damn pumpkin pie). Thankfully I had the tools and support already to help me jump right back in it and I lost the weight…but it wasn’t easy!

I have decided that THIS year I am going to be prepared. WHO’S WITH ME?! Establishing a healthy nutrition plan before the holidays will help us to be more aware of what and how much we are eating. Plus, losing a few pounds before they arrive will give you a little wiggle room to indulge here and there! tongue emoticon Hey – we are only human after all!

You still have three more months left in this year to rewrite your story. You CAN stick to your goals…TOGETHER we’ll find the best solution to help you work toward starting 2016 feeling the best you ever have. Can’t wait to start!!

weightloss

So today I tackled my dressers and closets for the FOURTH purge since I started this journey. Now everything I own either fits or will soon and nothing is too big. For the last three purges I kept things because I was worried I’d gain it back or not be comfortable wearing things that actually fit correctly haha. Well, not anymore. GOOD RIDDANCE. I’m so proud of how far I’ve come and am so thankful for all of your support as I’ve gone through the ups and downs of weight loss. I truly am blessed to have amazing friends, family, fellow Fixers, and followers! Thank you Carl Daikeler and the Beachbody Challenge for motivating me to be my best, get healthy, and help to ‪#‎endthetrend‬ of obesity 😀

Transformation Tuesday

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

tt

Eeep!  Scary post!  It’s been awhile since I’ve had a Transformation Tuesday of my own to share, mainly because the scale hasn’t been going down and I didn’t want to just post past progress.  I recently went to Cancun, as many of you know, and finally put on the first bikini I’ve ever worn in public (picture on the right).  Though my confidence has grown since the picture on the left, it was still nerve-wracking and I felt embarrassed and self conscious after we left our room at the resort to head to the beach.  I even thought about hopping back on the tram to go back to the room and put my tankini on to cover up my tummy.  But as I stood there at the entrance to our section at the beach, I looked around at all of the other women there.  Not because I wanted to compare myself to them, but because I know everyone’s story is different.  Like an article I posted the other day, every tummy has a story.  There were some tummies around me that held babies in the past or even in the present; there were tummies that were a little “puffy” because there was so much delicious food at our resort; big tummies, little tummies, tummies in between.  I thought about my tummy and how I’ve lost 50 pounds, as well as 8 inches in my waist and 8 inches in my hips.  I have loved my body enough to get healthy, be active, and eat cleaner.  So why wasn’t I embracing the changes my body has made and be PROUD of my tummy and baring it to the world.  So I went out onto that beach, took off my coverup, and waded into the Caribbean Sea with a smile on my face and a bounce in my step.  I need to remember that feeling every time I’m down and out or not progressing further toward my goal as quickly as I’d like. I may not be at my goal weight, but I’ve sure come a long way and I need to love my body as much as I have loved this process. 😀

Banana Yum

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

Whenever I do another round of the 21 Day Fix, my husband helps me come up with “fix-approved” recipes that don’t take long to prep.  This is one of my favorite desserts, and it’s ONLY FOUR INGREDIENTS!

Ingredients:
1 small banana or 1/2 large banana (1 purple)
2 tbsp. shredded unsweetened coconut (1 orange)
1 tsp. raw honey (1 sweetener allotment)
2 tsp. natural peanut butter (2 tsp).

Directions:
1. Turn oven on HI broil.
2. Slice banana and place on plate.
3. Spoon a little bit of peanut butter onto each slice (I just use my finger haha)
4. Place coconut on an ungreased cookie sheet (the natural oils of the coconut keep it from sticking).
5. WATCH THE COCONUT UNTIL IT BROWNS.  It doesn’t take a long time and burns quickly if you step away from it too long ^_^
6. Sprinkle toasted cocout on top of banana/peanut butter slices.
7. Drizzle a tsp, of raw honey on top.

BANANA…YUM 🙂

I’m finding that a lot of the searches coming through to my page are those looking for the modifier, Kat, from the 21 Day Fix.  Sorry, peeps, I’m not her.  But I did have great results from following the Fix three dedicated rounds and using the meal plan about 80% during other programs, as you can see from the picture above!  Let me know if you have any questions about the 21 Day Fix or any other Beachbody programs and/or supplements.  I’d love to help you reach your goals 🙂

YEAR END RESULTS!

10 months, 47 pounds, 38 inches down…18 pounds to go until my ultimate goal weight!

For those of you that don’t use pictures or measurements as motivation, you should start!  The scale isn’t the only place to see changes…and sometimes it can really work against you and be very unmotivating.  See it and feel it.  KEEP GOING!!!march-dec

21 Day Fix, Round 3, Week 1

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

Finished week one with NO CHEATS!  Got my workout in every day, plus trying to hit at least 7500 steps a day.  Lost 3.8 pounds this week!  Not measuring or doing photos until after the 21 days (the after pictures in my heading are the befores for this round).  Also was finally able to BIND in my yoga fix yesterday! See photo below the food ^_^

Started out this round at 173.3 pounds (up almost 5 since two weeks before the half marathon…took off a week and a half from working out and went out to eat too much!!), and am happy to report that I’m back down to 169.5 after this week. So I’m well on my way back to my goal of 50 pounds of weight loss by Christmas 🙂  A little less than 5 pounds and I’m there 🙂  Here’s some photos of what I got to eat on this “diet” this week (can you tell I like green beans best?!)!  Connect with me on Facebook if you want recipes and more ideas!

Never Give Up!!

Facebooktwitterpinterestyoutubeinstagram

NEVER GIVE UP! I want to share why…
I visited my mother in Florida three days after my first round of the 21 Day Fix and we realized this last weekend that she never sent me the pictures. The picture on the left was taken March 22nd. The picture on the right was taken October 4th. I only lost 6 pounds and 9.5 inches on my first round of the Fix but it taught me everything I needed to know about nutrition and increased my endurance to handle more extensive workouts. If I had given up after that first round because I didn’t get the results I wanted, I wouldn’t be where I am today…training for a half marathon, eating healthier, no longer at risk for many health issues, and having a heck of a lot more confidence in myself. KEEP PUSHING PLAY! You’ve got what it takes…even if you haven’t realized it yet!!!
