LIIFT4 At Home Workout Results


Hey guys! Great thing about tracking progress is that I get to show what programs actually do for me. Liift4 is a BRAND NEW workout program and I was part of the coach exclusive group getting early access to the program this summer.

It's a 4 day a week workout program with 32 separate workouts. Each workout is ONLY 30 minutes long. The workouts focus on lifting heavy, shredding it out with High Intensity Interval Training and then ending with core strengthening moves.

I actually gained 4 pounds doing this program. But... IT WAS 4 POUNDS OF STRAIGHT UP MUSCLE! Because I have never had visible back muscles before. I have never had the definition I have now. And I'm using heavier weights more comfortably now. I actually am using what I used to call my husbands weights.


Ladies, don't be afraid to lift weights. They help burn body fat. (Check out my 1 year progress photos to see what lifting weights and eating right has done for me!) Being strong is a blessing. It allows us to lift our babies easier. We have less aches and pains when we move. And for me, it's helped to regulate my crazy PCOS hormones and keep my periods more regular.

*Only available in the United States, Canada and United Kingdom

Life Isn't Perfect, NEITHER AM I!


If you are following me on Instagram or Facebook, you see my workout highlights all the time. But let me tell you! Things are not always as they seem! The other day I found out that the horn player that sits right next to me had seen my page but didn’t realize that it was me until I showed a picture she recognized. The next question she asked me was, “How do you get your floors so clean?” To answer that, I clean them with Bona Floor Care once a week and spot clean during the week after my workouts. You know. To clean up the sweat. And honestly it’s just the floors themselves and the finish. They shine really well! 

But what really hit home with me is that per my videos it seems like I’ve got it all together. I have a perfectly clean house with 3 perfect kids. HA! That ain’t true my friends. I have a very lived in house. There’s even some writing on the walls in the basement and guest room I still have to scrub off or paint over. It’s easy for me to move the toys in my workout area. For safety too! And I have moments where I #gingersnap because my kids are fighting so much. The thing is, I make time every day to exercise and I share that with you. I’m not any different than you (and you could even do what I do and help others on their journey! Interested? EMAIL ME!) 


It doesn’t take anyone special, or some magic ability to be a stay at home working mom of 3 kids and 2 home businesses and volunteer weekly make time to exercise. 
You just have to make a plan. Find a space. DO IT and Make it work. With kids around you if you have to. You can do this!

1 Year Progress With At Home Workouts


1 year later and I'm well on my journey! It hasn't been easy and it's taken a lot of dedication to my programs and myself but change has happened. And all this change has happened from AT HOME WORKOUTS!

STATS:
Down 9 pounds
Lost 24 inches
Lost 6% body fat on my body!

I'm not going to lie and tell you seeing that damn number not move very much on the scale has not been easy. It's frustrating but the scale only tells part of your progress. This is why taking pictures and measurements are so important. And honestly I lost a TON of body fat and replaced it with lean strong muscle. 15 pound weights are my go to medium to light weights now you guys! That is HUGE for me considering a year ago 8's were my heavy.

If you are feeling frustrated with your lack of progress, don't. Just keep on going. Change happens but it takes time. REAL TIME.

5 Tips To Eating Out For Special Occasions

It's a HOLIDAY WEEKEND! YAY! For us it is our Anniversary weekend. So Labor Day is pretty special for us. (hoping it doesn't turn into actual LABOR day though...3 more weeks baby girl, 3 more weeks! 14 years on Monday and we are celebrating tonight with an amazing dinner and of course we are going to indulge in a melted pot of chocolate! So let's talk about those fancy date night meals or indulgent meals. Hey, this is real life. No more restricting things. This is why we eat clean 80% of the time! So that we can enjoy the other 20%. I won't eat like this every single day (I used to want to!) Not anymore. Just occasionally am I ok with eating over indulgent food.
HERE ARE MY 5 TIPS TO HELP YOU WHEN EATING OUT FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS!

1. DECIDE BEFORE WHERE AND WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO EAT: We have already looked at the menu and the restaurant we are going to is African inspired but looks VERY healthy and has lots of healthy options. The only thing with eating out is you don't know for sure how they prepare your food. How much salt or oil. So try to pick something that is the healthiest option. Avoid cream sauces or deep fried foods. Your tummy will thank you the next day.

2. DON'T FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO EAT ALL OF THE FOOD. There is nothing better than enjoying leftovers guys. If it is a good meal, the leftovers can be pretty yummy too! Most restaurants give you too big of portions anyways. It is best to eat 1/2 or 1/4 of what is on your plate depending on how BIG the portion is. Think of your containers. Because as we learned from Autumn, it is still not good to over eat even the good foods!

3. START WITH YOUR VEGGIES AND LEAVE THE CARBS FOR LAST. I know I am no fun! But make sure you get some veggies on your plate, just like your momma taught ya! And start with them first. Hey, I think of it that if you don't like veggies, eat them first so that the rest of your food takes away the taste of them! ;) But get those veggies in because they are the most important, then go to your protein, and leave any carb for last. You don't want to fill up on quick burning foods and have no room for the stuff that your body really wants and needs!

4. DON'T BE AFRAID TO ORDER DESSERT. Share your dessert with your date. That way you aren't eating the whole thing by yourself. I struggle with this because we are often split on what we want for dessert and have in the past ordered one for me and one for Matt and then tried both. Occasionally this would be ok. But every time you eat out or go on a date. Probably not. I will be sharing my pot of melted chocolate tonight but only because it is so much I don't want to waste any!

5. DON'T ORDER TOO MANY "FUN" DRINKS! Make sure you don't enjoy too much alcohol or Mocktails. (that is what I get since I don't drink any alcohol. Try to limit yourself, because they are more empty calories and if you are doing an appetizer, dinner, dessert, that is already a lot of calories! Before you go decide how much you are going to drink, 1 or 2 glasses and stick to it! Your bill at the end will thank you too!
Remember, it is ok to eat out and enjoy what you are eating. Tomorrow you will be back on your regular eating of clean eating. You just need to think about it, plan ahead (just like you do at home!) And you will have an amazing time. Remember you are there with your partner and as long as you are together, that is all that matters!
