Give yourself 21 days!!!- Take the challenge

th (1)

Hey Everyone,  Today I want to talk about the importance of making time for yourself and trusting yourself enough to actually let change happen.  I remember before I was actually successful at weight loss, i didn’t even let myself start.  Before I would actually get started I already had myself convinced that I shouldn’t try because I wouldn’t be able to be successful. It was only until I found the right support system that I was able to get it together and actually make steps toward being truly happy with myself and my body.  So I am challenging all of you, Give yourself 21 days to …​

  • Learn healthy habits​
  • Start to exercise​
  • Learn portion control​
  • Make a complete change​
  • Finally take control ​
  • Transform your life​

I will be there with you every step of the way.

  • The Group starts April 6th​
  • You will get to be a part of a free online support group​ to help with motivation accountability
  • You will be able to work with your own online health and fitness coach​
  • You will get a easy to follow meal plan and exercise program for beginners all the way to advanced​

You can do this, and now can be your time to make it happen.  What have you go to lose?  GIVE YOURSELF 21 DAYS!!

How to continue after the fitness honeymoon is over

keep-going

I know we have all been there with so many things in life.  You start something new and are super excited and glad to do it.  After some time and the novelty wears off, you are not as keen to keep at it.  This also happens when you start living the fit life.  In the beginning it is new and exciting, and you are so happy to be seeing quick results, but after a while the results slow down, the daily chicken starts to taste nasty and you try to think of ways to get out of working out.

The good news is, we have all been there, myself included.  I had the chance to write about this recently in a blog for my sponsor  1st Step Pro Wellness. Click HERE to check out my blog post to get my tips to keep hitting it hard after the fitness honeymoon phase is over.

Do you H.I.I.T.?

I-LOVE-HIIT

Hey everyone, I wanted to take a minute to share with you a excerpt for a blog that I recently wrote for 1st Step Pro Wellness.  It is about high intensity intreval training(HIIT).

When I first started working out I remember spending hour after hour doing cardio. I eventually made it to the point where I could go a whole hour on the elliptical and not even break a sweat. While I was proud of this accomplishment, I got bored and wasn’t really seeing the results I wanted to see. I began to research and realized that there are actually methods to doing cardio. Really? That seemed so silly to me. After all 60 minutes of cardio is 60 minutes of cardio, right? WRONG!!! All along I had been doing steady state cardio. From my research and cardio experimentation I realized that I can actually be more efficient with my cardio workouts by implementing High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT for short)

Whether you are wanting to break through a plateau or just push your self to the next level, HIIT can help you!  Check out the rest of the article HERE to find out more info about HIIT and all of the benefits of doing it.  I also share a recent HIIT that I did that really got me sweatin.

Fitbit Flex Review

flex

Hey Everyone!! As we all know, the latest fitness craze is using activity trackers that help monitor all of your daily activity. There are devices out there that can measure calorie burn, step count, active minutes, distance walked, altitude climbed, and the list could go on and on.  Many of these devices also have the option of downloading an app to help you track your progress toward your daily goals.  I will be the first to tell you , that with so many options out there, the task of choosing a fitness tracker can be a daunting task.   After doing my research, I personally chose the FitBit Flex.

Visually the Flex is very sleek and not very attention grabbing. I will note that it is not as glamorous as some of the other options out there, but it does allow you to make a fashion statement with the many different band color options that are available.  When wearing the flex, it does not weigh down your arm nor does it feel bulky.

The Flex tracks steps taken, distance, calories burned, sleep, and minutes that you are active.  If you use the downloadable app you can also use the app to track water, weight, calories eaten, and to make a food plan.  The app is very easy to use and syncing through Bluetooth is effortless. If you want a quick update of how you are doing without syncing you can tap twice on the flex to get an update on how you are doing toward one selected goal.

While I am very happy with my flex there are a few negatives.  I have had my flex for 5 months. About 2 months after receiving it, I started having issues with it.  It wasn’t charging very well, and when it did charge it wasn’t holding charge for even 24 hours.  After contacting customer support and participating in some recommended troubleshooting activities, my item was replaced quickly.   The only other negative that I have found is that steps that you take while pushing a shopping cart or a stroller are not recorded due to the fact that your arms aren’t moving.

Hope this review answers some of the questions you may have about the Fitbit Flex.  Any other questions you may have, feel free to post them in the comments below 🙂
