wow its been one year already

Well today marks the One year anniversary of my becoming a beachbody coach! I want to take a minute and think about the past year and everything that I accomplished.  I want to reflect on what type of person I am becoming and that I have become! I want to go over my beginning goals as a coach.

   Wow one whole year has passed since becoming a coach. In this year I have accomplished a round of p90x2 and earned my tshirt!IMAG0346 Woot woot! I plan on earning every tshirt beachbody offers! I had my picture in a nationally published magazine for my weight loss of over 140 lbs! 419209_521131864579234_1236260464_nMy picture is on the cover here on the bottom in the orange! 185086_257101697744263_1455035957_nI had a full page spread telling my story!  I was so excited and happy! I got to meet Turbofires Jenelle Summers 380182_188471414607292_1419265888_ntwice!734839_305677532886679_2092109348_n The last picture is a little dark but that is because we were doing a glowin the dark turbofire inspired workout!  I also got to meet the big man and ceo of beachbody Carl Daikler 68720_265403293580770_784486190_n.
I attended trainings to meet them both!  My coach and I have also got to meet two times and I think she is amazing her name is Angela Capers! 385674_188470201274080_368886567_n542159_4115606968977_1578916664_n
My hubby and I also signed up for and ran a Warrior Dash 250748_217745141679919_900308778_nwe loved it so much we signed up for both Ohio Warrior dashes in 2013! So stay tuned for pictures from them! I got 3rd place in the firecracker 5k on the fourth of July in which I ran with my daughter Heaven Leigh. She finished in a great time for her first race and we both dressed a like I was very proud483008_235296319924801_183792914_n

We also raced in the run to the moon! I did the 5k and my two older girls ran the mile fun run…the lil one actually beat the big one.image237image242256382_240398116081288_607018499_o

I also competed in my first ever 13.1 mile half marathon..which I like to say I am only half crazy lol. I finished the race in 2 hours 20 mins. I felt like I could have done better because I had hurt my back prior to this and couldn’t really train like I had wanted to. But I finished!


  My journey with beachbody is making me a better person overall. As I give back and help other people in there Journeys and they  gain confidence so do i!  I love being able to share my story! When someone says “Hey thank you for posting that I needed that!” it is the best feeling ever!

My first goals as a coach was to be able to afford my shakeology without burdening my husband and having him use his money to buy it. I reached that goal and I have not had to pay for my shakeology at all! My commissions as a coach more than cover the cost. My 2nd goal as a coach was to help my family get healthy. Starting with my immediate family. I have also reached that goal my own mother is 60 lbs lighter and my husband is 50 lbs lighter.  If someone would ask me if I love my job I can truly say YES I love what I do as a beachbody coach! I am healthier! My family is healthier and my overall life is improved with this amazing opportunity! My thoughts are that the sky is the limit! Really anything that you want to achieve you can! With Hard Work and Dedication! 2013 is going to be an amazing year for me I just know it! I am claiming it to be mine! The feeling I have can only grow! I have never been so addicted to self improvement in my life! I love being able to improve myself on a daily basis!  Nothing can beat the desire I want for success and for the people around me to succeed!!!!!!!

Friday and combat

Yayyyyy ! It is Friday . And I am very very very sore but that is because my Les Mills combat arrived in the mail. I have decided that I am going to continue with my turbo fire workout and add combat. I started combat with my daughter on Wednesday and holy soreness I am so sore but I love it because I know that means I am changing. I can feel it when I start a combat workout. I've had an emotional experience with 2 of the workout so far it sounds weird but I have almost cried because it is so awesome I feel that this program is going to change my life. I can't wait to see the results that I am going to get from combat. I'm so excited to workout everyday because it is such a great workout.
  My house is been turned into a gym. My husband is doing body beast. My 2 younger daughters are doing Tony and the kids. I am doing turbo fire along with some combat with my daughter heaven. So so much Fitness goes on in my house with just my DVD player and my weights in resistance bands and push up bar pull up bar . I don't think I'll ever step foot into a gym to workout because I feel so awesome doing it in the privacy of my own home

bad back solutions

Well recently I have hurt my back. I don’t know what really that I did to it.  It has seriously put a wrench in my fitness goals but  I will not let this get me down! I went to a chiropractor and he said it was not with my spine and he adjusted me.  I felt a little better after that visit but not 100%. So instead of my given my money away to the chiropractor I have decided to heal myself.  I am taking what he has told me and what I already know. I have been doing a lot of steady cardio lately and my body is telling me….hey! Slow down. So this is what I shall do!

The plan~ Instead of doing cardio I will be doing yoga and foam rolling. When I do yoga I will be picking from Turbofire Stretch 40, P90x Yoga or p90x2 yoga.  The foam rolling is from P90x2 and I would recommend this program for anyone that is sore and needs your body to function better! Really when I do this video I feel so much better is is amazing!  Stretch 40p90x2-recovery-mobilityp90x yoga

I also have decided to use the heating pad after my workouts so that I help whatever that is tight in my back to work itself out. I remember a time when my back went out when I was a bigger girl and I would just basically give up. Stop doing anything and eat too much because I was depressed. But with my new life I need to be active! I need to not let my emotions send me to the cookie jar or the Halloween candy stash. I want to be strong about my decisions!

Tracking my diet is going to be key in this as well because I wont be burning as many calories as I would with the cardio I was doing. So I have to lower my calorie intake…this will be hard but I can do it and I need to be strong! I will Be Strong When I am WEAK Brave when I a am SCARED and HUMBLE when I a am Victorious!

Be STrong

Update on me

Well my back is still out of whack slightly. I visited a chiropractor and he said do light workouts and yoga. So starting tomorrow I will be doing daily yoga sessions along with recovery and mobility and light jogging. I really need to get my back worked out.  I will be incorporating core workouts and back strengtheners. I have been feeling really weak lately and I really need to stop that. I am strong and I can do this. My back will heal. I just need to take care of it.
