WEEK 7 Of NEW PROGRAM

Week 7 LEG DAY!

This was a battle 🥊
Not because of the exercises but because I let my head get into it. Not in a good way, I started to talk myself out of it and then I reached out and got some support and encouragement to push through and push harder than I thought I could!

Working out 🏋️‍♀️ is more than just moving your body, it’s not about being perfect or the next body builder. It’s for our mind too, we tend to trick ourselves in so many ways to say we can’t run 🏃‍♀️ that extra mile or we can’t lift that extra 5 lbs or we can’t workout today!

But when you keep at it whether you want to or not you’ll start to shift.

You’ll start to think “ok if I don’t workout how will I feel after , how good do I feel when I finish ? Is that worth giving up ? Look at how far I have come? Do I want to stop 🛑 now? “

If you answer “NO” to any of those questions then you my friends have found the secret 😎sauce!

And it feels Dam good when you can finish and it’s even better when you were able to tell you mind to shut the hell up and just do it!

Thank you to all the friends that helped me push through today , I really needed that extra push and you delivered!

So I want to offer you a huge gratitude 🙏 , I have been blessed in so many ways and you show that to me every day!

A Little Obsessed Day 4

This program has been a real blessing for me. Why you ask? Well, this sneak peek has given me the exact thing I need to focus on my health and energy.  I falter when I don’t have structure and I lose interest and start to go into my bad eating habits.  It’s a vicious cycle, there is never going to be a time that we don’t have to watch what we eat or exercise. It’s not like you take a magic pill and voila your cured, you aren’t going to crave chocolate anymore, or sweets or maybe you’re a potato chip person. Whatever is your weakness you have to learn that you can still have those things but just in moderation!

I have learned the hard way, and I find when I falter I do it hard. So when an amazing program like this one comes along and gives me the push I need to realize how much I needed this in my life right now. Stay focused on what my goals are and my dreams.  No excuses, never give up. I tell my challengers that every day. SO I guess I should start leading by example.

Day 4 had some tough spots like “frog squat” but what I found was that I was able to keep up! I only had to pause a couple of times! But pretty much kept up with Autumn, which was awesome. That’s the best part of progress is that when I start a program I literally suck at it. I struggle big time, it’s hard to finish a set. But after some time I am able to actually see that I’m getting better, mostly by the fact that I can improve each time. Do all 3 sets and then break.  That’s when I know I progressing. Now if all I had to do was exercise and not worry or work on nutrition I’d be set.  But then what would I learn right?  I do find I am not coordinated at all, in fact, it’s embarrassing at times. Trying to do the rocking horse was brutal, I ended up laughing so hard just figuring how ridiculous I look, but I didn’t care it’s in my house with just me and my dogs. Who am I trying to impress? The best thing was that I gave it my all and had fun doing it. I’m sure going to miss this program until it’s officially out.  I can’t wait. In the meantime, I’ll continue with 21-day fix & 21 day fix extreme. Still really good workouts for sure. week-3-day-1

This is one program that I have been so excited to try. Almost as much as bad as when I first started this journey! Have to admit after Day 1 and trying to use those bands I think that was a workout enough. Boy am I not coordinated at all! I was struggling with them so much I had to keep pausing on the video just to get my feet through. I felt like I was in Highschool all over again, when my high school teacher was teaching Gymnastics. Which I royally suck at by the way. She was getting everyone to do a handstand. Which I could not do for the life of me. So if you can imagine, I’m in Grade 9 in a class full of other girls and they’re all doing their Hand stands like it’s nothing. In fact, my teacher had a pet and she had her come to the front of the gym to demonstrate how to do the perfect Hand Stand!  I never felt the sweat and panic rush through me as I did that day.  Well, my body did not disappoint, every attempt to do a Handstand was a complete and utter failure, so much so that my Teacher noticed. So not that my sweating and panicking couldn’t get any worse, oh Yes, my friends, it did.  She had the Class stop doing the exercise and went on bringing me to the front of the class( my heart was literally leaping out of my chest) and she had the PET show me again how to do a handstand. So it was my turn, yes this was Not a Fairytale I’m pretty sure my Fairy God Mother was hiding in the corner of the Gym somewhere.  So I tried and failed, tried and failed, tried and failed. By about the 10th time( I know your thinking how could I remember how many times right?) Well trust me when you have a traumatic teenage experience you remember every detail.

It was Traumatic to me anyways. The teacher finally gave up on me and had me go sit down. She never did try to teach me how to properly do a handstand. Just dismissed me and my pile of sweat and fear.

I guess that’s one of the reasons why I love doing my own thing and my own time in my own house. The only judges I have are my pets. And you know what I love it. I actually started laughing trying to put on these bands. I felt even better when “Autumn Calabrese” even brought up how hard it is to work with them for the first time. As well they have been doing it for 80 days, so don’t panic or worry, You get better as you get going!  I just love her. She knows exactly when I need to hear that I’m ok, it’s not me, just keep doing the best you can! There is no Perfect!  Today I’ll be doing DAY 3 & 4 , and I can’t wait it will be challenging because I guess I’ll be using these things called “sliders” and already I can hear disaster coming!! But I don’t care, I love doing it and it’s fun and I wouldn’t have it any other way!! Don’t ever be afraid to try something NEW it took me a very long time to finally realize what I have been missing. Who knows maybe if my High School teacher took the time to work with me I might have loved Gymnastics and done really well. But that is the past not my future!

So​ Excited

One of the best decisions in my life was to buy a Challenge Pack from a very good friend of mine Jody.  She told me about coaching and I actually went out of my comfort zone and jumped in with both feet literally.  Well, I have have been doing this for over a year and I can’t believe how incredible this company is! How much it has changed my life and my way of looking at nutrition and exercise. I used to think of both as a punishment. Like ” oh gosh, I have to go to the gym” and hate every minute of it. About as much as household chores.  You know you have to do it, but you’d rather be doing something else right?  Wrong, way wrong.  I’m not going to lie and say it was easy “Hell NO” but the difference is simple. I knew I didn’t want to be where I was way more than doing what I was doing.  I knew I had a better life to live and I had to push to get there.

Well with consistency and support I had a change in my perception of “working out”, I started to enjoy it, I started to look forward to it. As tough as it might be for that moment, I knew it was only temporary and I would feel awesome afterwards. So with some of the different programs I have loved some and others not so much. I have never been as excited as I am Today! Why? well, I have come to a stage in my fitness where I have plateaued and honestly, my nutrition hasn’t been spot on either which is exactly why I have been putting on more weight than off.

So this program has come at the right time in my life and I’m so happy and super excited. Mostly because I need to get out of this funk!  I joined a group to help me stay motivated and I also have my own group. There’s no stopping me now, this program is working in the two areas I need the most help with. My abs and my booty, who doesn’t right? With losing over 110 lbs I have a lot of extra skin, I mean a lot. Like elephant knees, etc. I know we can be critical of ourselves. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one of these mid-life crisis women who want to get plastic surgery and look like a model. I know what I am and I’m damn proud but when I’m trying so hard to progress and there’s a lot of extra skin it actually is more of a hindrance than when I was bigger believe it or not.  It gets me so frustrated, so I am going to focus on the next 80 days solely on my abs and booty and if I don’t see any difference then I know I’ve tried everything and I’ll have to live with that. But I might as well have fun trying!
