2018 so far...Kind of a Bust!

Here is the reality of my 2018 so far. I don't share this because I love sharing my failures. Trust me, I don't and this makes me super uncomfortable! I share this because I can't be the only one that struggles with keeping their commitments to themselves or has a million and one "day 1's". 

I know there are others that set themselves on a health and fitness journey and knock it out of the park the first time and every time. They start a new 90-day program and finish it with no slips or cheats. I am super happy and impressed with these people. I let them inspire me. But apparently, I am not that person! 

I can keep my commitments to others, no problem. If I'm your person, I'm there for you every day, every step of the way. It is myself that I seem to let down. I know I'm not the only one on this vicious cycle. We are the silent ones, trying again and again. 

If this sounds like you then I'm now speaking directly to you, I'm not giving up and either should you! I don't care how many times or "day 1's" it takes me and neither should you. Screw what others think, they are not walking in your shoes. Don't let what others think or say about you dictate how you live your life!

Day 20 of 80 Day Obsession


Up early making sure I got my workout done! Leaving soon to pick up my daughter at the airport. 😁Going to be a fun weekend. 
The puppies were so awesome this morning waiting for their turn going out for their walk. Thought I would share some of the cuteness! 😍😍

Day 8 of 80 Day Obsession


Day 8/80 done!! Holy smokes, we moved so quickly through this workout because we added an extra round. I seemed to always be a few seconds behind. 😉

Day 5 of 80 Day Obsession


Leg day was rough! I struggle with the lunges because of knee pain. Squats I can do and not jave the pain. I assume as I lose the weight and become stronger the pain will lessen. Fingers crossed! 🤗

ossed! 🤗

Day 4 of 80 Day Obsession


These sliders are trying to kill me! 😂😣😥 😭 Seriou S Seriously, they are no joke! I am feeling muscles in my core that I never knew existed. 

Day 3 of 80 Day Obsession

Day 3/80. Was on the struggle bus!!! Workout kicked my butt good today. Bright side, it was only 40 minutes! 


Day 2 of 80 Day Obsession


2/80 done and done! Booty day, man am I going to feel this later! Ha 😂. Doing the timed nutrition plan sets up a workout block, where you have pre-workout meal, post workout supplement and post workout meal. It is definit

ely something I'm not used to. I feel like I'm eating all the time! 😉

Day 1 of 80 Day Obsession

Today is Day 1 of 80 Day Obsession! 😊 I would be lying if I didn't say I was a little nervous.  This program is going to be a huge challenge for me.  Not only committing to the 6 days a week 40 minute to hour long workouts, but the program includes a timed nutrition plan, which is something I didn't even know existed till this program. I am loving that there are 80 different workouts, and the videos were done live, so we are progressing right along with the cast.  I have never done something like this before and I am determined to do the program as it is written. I am in an exclusive coach test group run by the trainer, which I have also never had the opportunity to do in the past.  Test groups are by invitation only and are usually a pretty small group, 100- 200 of the top coaches.   This time they opened it up to any coach who was willing to commit and do the program.  We have close to 40,000 coaches in the group! 😮

OK, I am going to be very REAL over the next 80 days of this program.  I have NEVER shared my weight publically before and this time I am putting it all out there. Gah! 

Tracking my weight from July 2017, I started at 268.8 lbs. I had dropped 24.2. lbs, but my weight went back up in November and December putting today's starting weight at 256.2. 😒

When starting any program you want to take your before pictures and measurements.  I always take them, but I have never shared those before publically.  And because I am in the test group I was asked to take them in a sports bra. 😨 Well, here they are!  Be gentle. This is so hard for me to do, but I believe by putting this out there and not hiding anything along the way this will not only help me but maybe it will connect with others and inspire them too.

So here are my BEFORE pictures. 😢😢😢 I am putting this out here to say goodbye to the girl in these pictures.  Moving forward from here and excited to see how I transform mentally and physically! 😊😊😊
