Learn To Be Obsessed Challenge - Phase 3 Results


In just over 2 months, I have lost 7 pounds and over 10 inches! I’m Exercising almost daily and eating better than I ever have before by following the nutrition fix program that came with my online streaming service along with drinking my Shakeology almost daily!

My biggest tips: 
1) Eat more veggies! Like so many veggies. I am having at least a cup of 2 with my lunch and dinner and have a large handful of spinach in my daily shake. Plus snack on baby carrots and hummus. They have been filling me up and helping me feel satisfied. I love roasting up broccoli or cauliflower, green beans, or bell peppers (don’t have to do all of them. Pick one for the week and buy a few of them) and putting the garlic salt on them for flavor with a little extra virgin olive oil.

2) Drink more water! I was reminded of this just last week when I was drinking a ton of water for the cleanse and realized that I wasn’t drinking enough. My body has felt so good this week because I know I’m getting enough water.

Goals for phase 4:
1) don’t miss a workout. 
2) Eat my carbs for breakfast and lunch. No carbs after 2
3) stick to my pre determined days on when I get to indulge. 
4) remember why I started this and have fun along the way! 
5) trust the process because it does work!!!

How Much Can Your Body Shape Really Change With Exercise?

The next time you think you don’t need exercise in your life or if you are struggling with wanting to continue your exercise program because you aren’t losing any weight. Remember this picture. because, EXERCISE DOES MATTER! 

The picture on the left is from 2 years ago, before I got pregnant with Elyse and I was exercising about 2 days a week (because I had lost 20 pounds and got into that common "comfy phase" and it was the holidays and I would lose weight with the next program in the new year) That girl on the left, uncomfortable in her own skin. Dreaded working out because it was hard, so she just went through the motions and just did enough. But knew, it wouldn't be and was scared that she was going to fail yet again.

The picture on the right, is today. I am actually 10 pounds heavier now than 2 years ago. But I have had a baby, currently nursing and postpartum weight loss rebounding hit hard this summer plus recovering from surgery. But...For the past 65 days (and most of this year) I have been consistent with exercising 5+ days a week doing mostly 30 minute workouts using the unlimited online streaming service I LOVE that has access to over 600 workouts! Finally pushing myself instead of going through the motions. Sharing my journey honestly and finally loving me and my body as it is now, which feels pretty awesome!



If you are in your journey and you have tried it all, but the scale doesn't move, TAKE PICTURES to track your progress that way. The scale only shows one side of your journey. And you are so much more then that number. Be proud of how far you have come, of what you have accomplished and keep going. Be consistent and challenge yourself to workout 5 days a week. Because overtime you will see the changes. You will feel better.


Exercise helps your body be leaner, stronger and function better. And in these past two years I have finally gained the confidence in my body I have always wanted. Because I’m taking care of it. And my body is changing and feeling better. Exercise and healthy eating choices makes all the difference in the world. Don’t give up in your journey or goals when you hit a plateau or go backwards in your progress. Remember be consistent no matter what is going on. it could take longer than you want to get the results you want but just think about how you will feel when you can say, “I did it!”

5 SIMPLE Tips: How To Avoid Holiday Weight Gain


It's here! The most fattening time of the year! With all the parties, gatherings, cookies, treats and other goodies around you, plus going against our body's natural tendency to want to eat carb, and fat laden foods to "stock up for winter", it can feel like a losing battle. But, if you want to make a change this year, and end on a good note you are going to have to work at it! Check out these 5 tips to help you Beat The Holiday Weight Gain!

1) DRINK MORE WATER
It's cold outside, not hot. You sweat less. In some ways the body is more dehydrated in the winter than in the summer, when we know to hydrate our bodies more because of the excess sweating that happens after we exercise. Aim to drink a tall glass of water (8oz at least) before every meal. Have a craving for something sweet, drink water first. Aim to drink half your body weight in water a day, every day.

2) DECIDE NOW WHEN AND AT WHAT PARTY/GATHERING YOU WILL INDULGE
Pull out that calendar and put down every party, gathering, cookie exchange you have been invited to and decide which one you are going to indulge in. Because you "shouldn't" indulge at all of them. Remember, you have goals. And you want to reach them. That means you might have to say no to those sweets and treats.
3) EAT MORE VEGGIES
This is going against our natural order. Where veggies are the go to in the summer time because that is when they are readably available. But now that we have access to greens and veggies galore, stock up on those veggies. Eat a plate of veggies before you go to a party, to fill up the space making it more difficult to eat other things. And always grab some veggies at your party. Fill half your plate at the party and regular dinner table with veggies. Not only will you be getting the vital minerals and nutrients from the veggies, but they help to take up more space than proteins and carbs. Helping you feel fuller faster.

4) EXERCISE
Make it a goal during this month specifically to exercise 5-6 days a week. If you normally do 3-4 try to bump it up by at least one day. By exercising more you are burning more calories, and mentally it helps you feel better about yourself and some of the treats. It is a mental mind game in a way to help you feel less guilt when you do indulge.

5) ENJOY YOUR HOLIDAYS
Don't feel any guilt when you do indulge. It is the time of year when memories were always made around food, family and gifts. Food is a huge part of this holiday. And when you do indulge don't feel guilty for what you are eating. Follow the first 4 tips here, to help you stay on track but eat a cookie every now and then. Enjoy your Christmas feast that you or your family and friends prepared for you. Because life is too sweet to and wonderful to feel things like guilt to ruin your day. There is always the next day to get back at your goals. Never forget that!
