My 11 Week Fitness Progress

I'm stunned. I feel better than I've felt in two years. I've lost a lot of bloat, fluff and self doubt. I've been kicking my booty into shape. I workout 6 days a week for 30-60 minutes and sweat like crazy. 

I've been eating more food, more consistently than I was prior to starting this program, but the quality of foods I'm eating has changed. I'm thrilled with my results so far! 

My birthday is Saturday! I didn't realize the last workout of the entire program would fall ON my birthday. How crazy?! 

I've tossed and turned about whether I should indulge a little or stay strong so I can take OFFICIAL 80 Day photos. My husband bought my favorite bottle of wine and I really want a donut. lol. I'll keep you updated on what I decide.

I'm definitely having a donut soon though. The only debate is to go for it on my BDAY or wait an extra day or 2. We are headed to the mountains on Friday and the cabin we stay at has cedar plank walls. I'd prefer to keep the same gray background for consistency sake.

Some of you have already been asking what my post-80 day program plans are. 

I'm doing a second round starting April 23rd!!! I'd love for you to join with me! 

My goal is to get back to a lean 142 lbs. I know what a lean 142 lbs of muscle looks like on my body and that's what I want to get back to. 

I've got about a week gap from finishing up and starting the second round. I'll be doing a 5 day mini program in between and living life a little off the nutrition plan (aka there will be a little pizza involved). 

Starting a family IS in the back of my mind, and it was so important for me to get back into shape to feel confident if and when we're blessed to start that adventure. I also wanted to know I could lose the baby weight. I just needed to get back into the groove of making health and fitness part of my lifestyle again. 

I do have a fitness group starting the first Monday in May! Click the button above for more detail! I'd love to see you get results for yourself and feel AMAZING! It's 100% worth it!

Thanks so much for following along with my progress so far! I still plan to keep adding quick and easy recipes here along with updates on my fitness progress!  Happy Hump Day!!!!!


My 5 Week Fitness Progress

The 5 weeks between these two photos flew by. When I took my before photos I burst into tears. It was really hard to put a smile on my face. 

I made some big changes in my life 2 years ago. I'll spare you the details, but anxiety can do strange things to a person. Seemingly overnight I went from exercising and eating healthy to cooking casseroles.

I quickly gained 20 lbs. in a blink. 

I knew this program was getting ready to launch and I'm so glad I talked myself into joining a test group of coaches to go through this process with. I needed that accountability to stick to the workouts and start the process over with nutrition. It always goes back to that-FOOD MATTERS.

Day 0 vs Day 32

Here's the most important thing I want you to know. Mentally, the first four weeks of this program was really freaking hard. It wasn't the food, or the workouts that kicked my butt as much as the mental back and forth battle. "keep going!" vs "this isn't going to work for you...give up.". 

Logically we know consistent exercise and healthy nutrition works. We KNOW that, but it's the mental game you have to face head on until you see those physical results. If you can get past that first hurdle, GIRLFRIEND you can do  A N Y T H I N G. 

I know it sounds cliche', but you really do have to trust the process and forget about the scale. Focus on the post workout high and know that you are doing the right thing even when you look in the mirror and don't see the physical results yet. 

I can't wait to share more progress with you. As I'm writing this, we are OFFICIALLY past the 40 day mark of this 80 day program! Stay tuned, and in the meantime if you are interested in more details on how you can be part of my next online fitness group click the button below!

*Update: I'm officially on Day 51 in the last 30 days of this program! I can't wait to share more progress! I feel stronger than ever!
