Did you train today? I ALMOST talked myself out of it. Are you like me where if you donโ€™t go by a certain time of day you will try your darnedest to talk your way out of it? Yeah - fitness professionals are human too and Iโ€™m not ALWAYS game for the gym. I have to say though - I have NEVER EVER regretted a workout. That saying is cliche now but itโ€™s TRUTH! Just finished some cardio ๐Ÿ’ฆ #high5tome #high5toyou #4weeksout #bikinipro

Got my workout in before Jaxson's hockey game last night!! I can feel my triceps today but it's a great feeling!!!๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช We have busy schedules but I still make the time to get my workout in! It is a priority for me. I dont watch TV๐Ÿ“บ I use what "free time" I do have for my workout. Alot of people say they don't have the "time" but I bet if you tracked what you do with your time you'd be amazed at how much time is being wasted!!๐Ÿ˜ฑ If you want to have an incredible year for your health and fitness something has to CHANGE! You need to be more COURAGEOUS and not fear the commitment to that workout calendar ๐Ÿ“… Choose COURAGE today!! Let today be the day that YOU GO FOR IT!! Believe in yourself!! You are worth it and you are so CAPABLE!!๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• #Joinour80dayjourney #homefitness #fitmommas #hockeymom #makethetime #beapriority #nomoreexcuses #fitforties #timednutrition #joinourteam #getresultsnow

If this happened once, it happened a few times today. My pants kept falling of my hips. Not a bad problem to have when you've been working hard on reshaping your body with loops, sliders and timed nutrition.

Wow. Amazing to see progress side by side. The video on the left is from August 27th. Only 3-5lbs down from then. Thatโ€™s scale weight (reminder to not focus on scale weight ๐Ÿšซ). The body fat shed, lean muscle mass and more tone gained is huge. Clothes fit sooo much better. I feel freakin amazing (and um, my double chin is gone...! When the hell did I get a double chin?? Bahaha)! Thissss is how I wanted to welcome my next chapter that will be coming in the form of 4๏ธโƒฃ2๏ธโƒฃ in less than a month. Feeling amazing, in every way possible, not faking true happiness and comfort in my skin as I was just 6 months ago. I wanted to TRULY be happy. Not suck it in any more. Not feel uncomfortable in my skin or clothes. Self work. Self love. Self care. So worth it. And the KEY word here: SELF. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿผ Are you gonna put in the work? Or just continue to wish for change but not change todayโ€™s actions...? Thatโ€™s the definition of madness, by the wayโžก๏ธTo keep doing what youโ€™re doing and expect a different outcome...

Laying on the floor after LEG day!! I felt tired today and really wasn't sure I had anything in my tank for the workout and what kind of intensity I was going to be able to bring. Once I started though the engine was primed and ready to rock!!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œ Must have been the fuel from Refeed Day ready to burn up!! Pushed with heavier weights, faster reps and even had a bonus round ๐Ÿ† The thing is just press play, just give yourself 10 minutes to get into it and I guarantee you ..YOU will feel AMAZING by the end of every single workout you do!! Give yourself a high five, a pat on the back! Give yourself credit that you CAN DO IT!! You have to believe in YOURSELF and BELIEVE IN YOUR GOALS!!๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• No one can take your goals away from you but yourself!!๐Ÿ’‹ #getitdone #joinour80dayjourney #beobsessed #getoutofyourownway #homefitness #fitmommas #fitforties #timednutrition #80do #countrygirl #naturalcurlyhairedmomma #hockeymom #furbabies #chocolatelabs

Practically every day I have one of our pets watching me and keeping me company in our home gym. It's like our special one on one time. I don't mind the company. But I do wonder what they are really thinking as they watch? What do your pets do when you workout at home? Do you include them or keep them out? #fitnessfun #fitnessfollies #petsinthegym #catswantallattention #blackcatsrule #getitdone #80dayobsession #legdaygains #bonusround #myhomegym #keepthefocus #journey #fitforties #makechanges #youareworthit #plantpowered #veganstrong #fortheanimals

Hotel no excuses workout. You can workout anytime, anywhere. Stop making excuses and move. I used a suspension band to workout in my hotel room. This was not one of those expensive ones either. I got this one from Ross for less than $20. It served its purpose well.

I find rest days really tough, as I always feel that I should be doing something. However taking a rest means that you can increase your intensity and performance tomorrow and not keep carrying little niggling injuries. Back at the gym tomorrow, then another rest day (as restful as Saturdays can be with young kids) with a half marathon on Sunday ๐Ÿ˜ฌ #fitforties #fitnessmen #gymspiration #gymtime #justdoit #nopainnogain #laceupandgo #healthylifestyle #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgoals #calorieburn #running #roadtoabs #tdnfitness #healthgoals #beastmode #wei#weightlossjourney #weightloss #restday #restdaysucks

"I've always believed that success for anyone is all about drive, dedication, and desire, but for me, it's also been about confidence and faith." STEPHEN CURRY Have you ever embarked on a journey without any idea how you were going to come out on the other end if it but knew you had to see it through? For me it's my fitness health. I struggle with numbness and tingling in my right foot from a damaged nerve in my back. You'd think after nearly 10 yrs I'd be ok with it. But, I'm not. I believe that I can be much stronger, more confident and more healthier than I used to be which is why I continue to strive for it. Each meal, each workout, each day, I commit to being better than before. I have faith that it can be done. #strongisbeautiful #strongereveryday #makethingshappen #getitdone #believeinyourself #mindandbody #shiftyourmind #plantbased #compassiondiet #momofthree #Godsgirl #fitnessafterinjury #comebackstronger #fitforties #makechanges #youareworthit #veganstrong #veganista

Youโ€™re gonna wanna be in the Keto gang! ๐Ÿคฉ Ketosis WITHOUT eating all the fatty foods you usually need to in order to get to that ketosis phase...um, yeah. Cuz Iโ€™m not about to eat bacon, sausage and sausage and bacon all day in order to get my body to that fat burning stage. Atkins did die of a heart attack, did he not? ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ™„ And for those of you that arenโ€™t fitness freaks like yours truly (cardio love ๐Ÿคค), grrreat news. Even if you donโ€™t change your diet or live in a gym, youโ€™ll still get amaaazing results with these one of a kind, often imitated (beware of imitations as everyone and their mama are jumping on the โ€˜Ketoโ€™ wave) products! Youโ€™ll be seeing my before and after posts here soooooon....! Time to Keto! ๐Ÿ˜ป๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ’ฅI seriously can not wait to try the Keto OS. Within 60 minutes of taking it, youโ€™re in ketosis (FAT BURNING) mode. Yesss!๐Ÿ’ฅ Waiting for hubby to come home so we can do it together. Heโ€™s on his way. Iโ€™m patiently waiting.

Savoring every bite!!! Oh so good!!! Today's Refeed day!! Refueling our bodies for one day! This is not to be confused with a cheat day. Our macros are still balanced, weโ€™re maintaining proper portions, weโ€™re still eating every 2-3 hours and weโ€™re keeping our other foods lean & healthy. We just get to dirty up those yellows and have a little more fruit. ๐Ÿ˜œ๐ŸŠ Want to know more about it???? #homefitness #fitmommas #fitforties #timednutrition #joinour80dayjourney #chickpeabrownies
