Today's tip - Flexibility

And no I'm not talking about that, I'm talking about getting your workout in! Why? Because Monday morning I could not wake up. I had sleep issues and did not want to be overtired all day, so I slept instead of working out early. I wasn't upset because I got my workout done later on in the day. Everyone has the time that they can make, each day, to do some sort of exercise or movement. So I pushed my workout hard later on in the day. Get it in when you can, despite obstacles!

Tuesday morning I was 15 minutes into my workout when I heard my youngest crying for me, so I had to stop & take care of her. I got it DONE later on in the day. Why? I don't want to be one to add to the obesity epidemic!

I have it written on my calendar what workout I will do 6 days of the week, and I stick to it because it's gratifying accomplishing what you set out to do! So the point is - CRAP happens and LIFE throws you curveballs. It's ALL about how you deal with it, you can work around things if you choose to. Or you can sit on the couch & let your butt grow. It's up to you.

I just have to say the new SHAKEOLOGY sites are pretty sweet! I'm so glad I'm drinking this stuff, it's so good & good for ya! :)

I HAVE to admit I've been very skeptical of this product (especially because of its price tag) but I vowed that I would buy it & try it and O.M.G.!!! I got the chocolate flavor (I will get the green berry someday) and the taste was SO MUCH BETTER then I could've imagined. It got me, I won't stop drinking this! I just HAVE to say that the fact that it's like 70 crazy ingredients, things I would NEVER EVER try because I'm a PICKY ARSE eater [& I must admit I do NOT eat a good variety of veggies] I am just blown away at how this tastes! They say it detoxifies you, HECK YES IT DOES! I felt the effects of that in like an hour after I drank my first shake. Oh I also must say that it IS filling! It's a perfect meal replacement shake! It's more chocolatey then I expected (so far I only blended it with water) but I can only suspect throwing a tbsp of natty PB will just make it perfect. They say it gives you energy, I can thoroughly agree with that! It is SO packed full of nutrients it's just simply amazing! EVERYONE MUST TRY THIS! I feel psycho now, but I have to admit this is AWESOME!

It is gluten free, caffeine free, refined sugar free etc. etc. It's friggin amazing.

Yiu can get a 10% discount if you're a club member or a 25% discount if you're a coach. If you sign up to get it via Home Direct (monthly auto shipment) the SHIPPING IS FREE PEOPLE! FREE! So for me being a coach I get 30 servings of this wonder shake for a grand total of $95! That's friggin amazing! THis stuff has super powers! I really HOPE more people try this!

This video is a must see, follow the link: SHAKEOLOGY THE BREAKTHROUGH

If you want to get this for a discount go to this link & set up a club account (only $15 each quarter) or even become a coach. The discount you get on it more than pays the cost of being a coach, so it's WORTH IT! GO GO GO NOW! I Swear you will NOT regret it! And anyway BeachBody has this guarantee with EVERYTHING you buy that if you don't like it or change your mind within 30 days you get your money back (even if it's signing up to be a coach. Just sayin'. I know I sound crazy, but this stuff is awesome!

I'm here!

I just haven't really been up to blogging, not knowing what to write. I had problems figuring out what I was going to do next workout-wise, but I didn't stop & I'm moving onward! Part of me wants to get leaner & crazy ripped but it's just not practical & not healthy to get your bodyfat under 12% [for females] & stay there. So I am struggling a little with keeping my bodyfat a bit higher, trying to stay in that mentality. I have no NEED & no reason to be lower. I decided I'm going to a "classic" rotation of P90X with having Insanity cardios on Tuesdays & Saturdays in place of the P90X ones, so that is my set in Jell-O plan lol.

Here's what I've been thinking about recently. WHY would you keep on going? If you aren't a fitness model, you aren't going to try a figure comp, you aren't trying to win MONEY, you are healthy & fit & happy with where you are, so why would you keep going? Why NOT keep going? I have the body that is able, the mind might not always be so willing [but you have the CHOICE which is very powerful], so I'm going to use it. My heart might not always be 100% into my workouts, but I'm going to keep plugging away because I can. I like having the extra energy, being able to keep up with my girls, I LIKE how working out makes me feel. I do not like how I feel when I don't workout and I don't like how my body totally revolts when I eat bad food. We weren't made to eat the processed CRAP that our supermarkets are filled with. White sugar & white flour etc. just all wreaks havoc on you! Yes it is HARD but anything worthwhile isn't easy. It's hard to fight cravings & not always give into temptation, it's EASY to be lazy & stuff your face full of fast food & oreos and so on, but do you really want to be that way? Are you HAPPY feeling how you do? I'm not happy like that! That's why I will not let old habits make a comeback, no matter if I WANT to workout & eat clean or not.

I decided to really step out of my comfort zone & reserve a booth at a PTA event. I know it's small because it's just my older girls' elementary school, but it's a start. I'm extremely shy & don't really have any local friends (just a few acquaintances) and I don't want to tell them all about what I do because I don't want them to feel like I'm trying to push anything on them! So I figure I get this booth, put out my information & maybe I will get moving on this coaching business. By having a little booth I know only interested people will come over & talk to me, there won't be my trying to present things to a lot of people so there really won't be pressure. They will see the proof right in front of them that BeachBody works & if they want to get in shape they'll know who to call. SO I'm hoping good things come of it. That is this weekend.

Anyway that's about all I have, just random babblings :) Have a great week everyone & make it count!
