You Are NOT Too Fat To Get Fit!

Don't ever let your current starting point stop you from taking that first step in your journey. I used to let this define me. A few years ago I said to myself, "I'll never be able to do that workout. It's too hard." I have been doing that workout this month! AND I LOVE IT! I actually hear all the time, "I'm x amount, I can't do those kinds of exercises!" I am here to tell you, YES YOU CAN!  I am 247 pounds right now. You see me doing my workouts. You see me breaking the stereotype of what can and cannot be done. Here's the thing. You might not right from the get go be able to do some exercises, but eventually, as you are consistent you will be able to do a downward dog split. Or Surrenders with weights. Or a bear crawl. I say these 3 specific exercises because at one point, I told myself, "I will never be able to do that." Take the I can't, or I will Never out of your vocabulary RIGHT NOW! Because sister, you can do anything you put your mind to!


I get it. Exercising as a plus size person is WAY harder than most would believe. I personally have excess belly fat that actually gets in my way doing some exercises. It actually takes a lot of strength to just hold a plank. Getting up and down can be a challenge. I am here to tell you, as a plus size sister, YOU ARE A ROCKSTAR FOR EVEN STARTING! Your body is already way stronger than you think. And doing extra things can be challenging but, you can do them. Follow these simple rules to help you get started, keep going and ultimately reach your goals.

Rule #1: Max Effort of 70% Only! 

Week 1 of your new workout program DO NOT go full out. Do not go the same speed as the people in the program do. DO NOT lift the same weights as they do. Start at your speed, your strengths and just keep going. Aim to give 6-0-70% max effort in all aspects of the workout to allow your body to adjust to what you are doing. This allows you to go at a slower speed, take more rests to catch your breath and to see what your starting point is. Plus you won't be so sore the next day so you will be able to get in your next workout! (Consistency is key!)

Rule #2: Do What You Can For As Long As You Can

Can't do the full 30 minute workout. That's okay. Do what you can for as long as you can. If you have to start with doing just 10 minutes. The goal is to KEEP GOING and DO WHAT YOU CAN! At any time if you feel dizzy or short of breath, pause your video, take a seat and rest for a bit until you feel like you can keep going.

Rule #3: It's A Must To Modify If You Have To

MODIFY the moves only when you have to. Modification is the key when you are first starting. Take now shame in it! But when you feel stronger and are able to move past modifying or can do some of the original move, DO IT! This one still gets me. I still modify because I am still working on my strength in my core, but I also get comfortable not pushing myself as much as I can. Don't let yourself plateau in your progress of your workout. This is part of the reason why I am so excited for 80 Day Obsession. Yes it is an intermediate to advanced workout but...Each workout every day is totally different. It won't allow me to do the same workout over and over and modify the same moves over and over. It will push me to the next level which is exactly what I need a program to do for me.

Rule #4: Use What You Have Already

Use what you have around you if you don't have the equipment. Don't have weights, use soup cans or water bottles. Use your baby (safely. check out this post with how I did my Total Body Workout with my baby) if your baby refuses to be put down. Use toys, use books, use your flour container, use what you have. There are tons in your house that can be used as a weight. Or you can get a single set of weights for a great low price. You don't have to get a full set right away. Get what you can and then build from there.



Rule #5: Listen to your body

If something hurts when you are lunging, don't lunge as deep. If a weight is too much for you, use something smaller. If your body is telling you to rest. REST. Your body doesn't want to get hurt just as much as you don't want to hurt it. Your body will tell you when something is not right. But this is not to be confused with "I'm already feeling sore" If you are sore in your muscles from yesterdays workout, sometimes working out again today will help to loosen those muscles. My mantra, "Super sore, workout more!"

Don't let your current weight, size or shape define what you can and can not do. You are so much stronger than you think you are. Getting started is the first step in your journey. Just take that first step! Need support and help along the way? Be sure to join my FREE online Community for daily motivation, tips and info to help you out! The new year starts Monday. This is your year! 


// YOU ARE STRONGER THAN YOU THINK YOU ARE! // Only 18 days until the launch of the new program that is going to totally change my body! I’m in serious prep mode now getting ready for it. But just like anyone else I get those doubts in my head, like “I could never do that!” Including this move with the floor sliders and even just push ups. But look at me now. It’s time to cut off those “I can’ts” or “I could never” excuses. Because you can do anything. It just takes consistent work to build up to harder moves. And before you know it. You will be stronger and more capable then you ever thought possible! If you want to join me on this 80 Day journey, msg me and let’s chat! 1:1 coaching with me and an Exclusive group to help you succeed!

5 Simple Steps To Kick Start Your Weight Loss Journey


Holidays are coming to an end, and the new year is about to begin. If you want to kickstart those weight loss results, try my top 5 simple steps to not only lose weight but to change your lifestyle!

1) EXERCISE 5+ DAYS A WEEK
Yep, gone are the days of 3 days a week. If you want to change your body, you must work for it. Aim for 5-6 days a week of exercise. Using one of the days as (I like Wednesdays) as an active recovery day doing something other than lifting weights or straight up cardio but still moving your body. Yoga or Pilates are PERFECT! My weekly workout schedule I love and is great to follow is formatted from 21 Day Fix available TODAY on Beachbody On Demand.  This is what has allowed me to get amazing results in trimming and leaning down my body. I still have extra weight to lose but my body not only looks better but feels better since I added strength training and consistent 5+ days a week of exercise.

Mondays: Total Body Strengthening
Tuesdays: Upper Body
Wednesday: Pilates
Thursdays: Lower Body
Friday: Cardio
Saturday: Cardio & Strength Training
Sunday: Rest or Yoga

2) ELIMINATE SODA POP, DAIRY AND GLUTEN (white flour and pasta)
I cut daily soda pop in 2009 from my diet. In 2014 I stopped drinking milk daily and switched to almond milk for my daily superfood smoothie and in 2016 I have stopped having gluten daily. I finally found some great gluten free flour that I have now swapped to for most of my recipes that call for flour and can't tell a difference except for the fact I have stopped bloating.! Make it a goal for 2018 to cut at least  1 of these things from your diet and see how good you will feel!

3) EAT MORE OF THE RIGHT KINDS OF VEGGIES
Most people don't eat enough GREEN veggies. I get it, they aren't as sexy as rolls, or mashed potatoes, or starchy foods. But...most people are eating too many starchy foods and not enough of the fibrous roughage veggies our body needs to work more efficiently. Find seasonings that work for you, that spice them up and make them taste great! Aim to eat more from the GREEN list of veggies and less of the yellow list of veggies. Aim for 5+ servings or cups of these types of veggies A DAY! CHECK OUT THIS POST FOR TIPS ON HOW TO START CLEAN EATING
4) REDUCE SALT INTAKE
Cut fast foods, packaged foods or pre-made meals from your diet and make homemade meals where you control the seasoning is the fastest way to reduce your salt intake. I barely add salt to my foods when I am cooking. Thanks to fast foods, and salt used as a preservation agent in packaged and pre-made meals we have gotten used to higher salt intake. Women should only be eating about 1500mg or less of sodium a day. By cutting out processed foods, fast foods and pre-made meals you will reduce your salt intake. If you find food too bland, add extra pepper. You can add as much pepper as you want to your foods. For me it tricks my mind into thinking I added salt. It only takes a few weeks for your body to adjust and soon enough, foods that come with salt already added will taste too salty.

5) DRINK MORE WATER
When you cut soda pop from your daily intake make sure you start drinking extra water. This will help your body stay hydrated and cut those cravings for sugary drinks. Always have a water bottle near you, or a glass of water ready for you so that when you go looking for something to drink, you are ready! 

6) BONUS! GET MORE SLEEP! 
Get 7-9 hours of sleep a night. Yep. Don't think you can't find time to make that happen. But if you want your body to recovery just right, then you have to treat it right by allowing it to heal and recover from the work you put it through during the day. That means, turn off those tablets and phones, and the tv and get to bed earlier than you normally do. Start with 30 minutes if you have to, then make it an hour. But sleep is important. That is how your body repairs and heals and rests. When was the last time you got a good night sleep? 

MAKE YOUR HEALTH AND FITNESS A PRIORITY.

How To Reduce Holiday Stress, FAST


Parties, decorating, baking, gatherings, presents to wrap, holiday concerts, WELCOME TO THE MOST STRESSFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! Yesterday I was feeling the effects of this season. I actually felt stressed because I was trying to finish getting the decorations up that I missed my scheduled ME TIME! EEK! And because of that, I felt so stressed for the rest of the day that I ended the day with a massive headache. So...it's time to destress. Here are some tips to help relieve stress quickly in your life so that you can feel like you get more accomplished in the day!

1) EXERCISE
Of course exercise is going to be in the list! Because it will help you feel better. Not only does it flood your system with happy making endorphins but it is also taking care of yourself. If you are feeling frazzled, stressed, like you can't accomplish the things in your day. DO A 30 MINUTE WORKOUT! (There are TONS of workouts on the online streaming service I use, Beachbody On Demand, that are 30 minutes or less!) I get it, you are busy, you can't find time...But guess what. WE ARE ALL BUSY! There are 1,440 minutes in each day. Can you find just 30 of those minutes to workout and take care of you? Remember, you can't take care of other people unless you take care of yourself first.

2) JOURNAL
Sit down for 5 minutes and just free write how you are feeling or what you are going through. Sometimes we just need to get out our frustrations or feelings to help us feel better and literally take the load off our shoulders. I started doing this at the beginning of the month, and I can't believe how much it has helped to just clear my mind and organize my thoughts and day.

3) MEDIATATE
10 minutes! All you need is to sit in peace and quiet and think about nothing. Or think about how amazing you are and all the awesome things you accomplished in your day. But don't let any negative thoughts enter, or "I should have done this or that." Keep it positive or think about nothing at all! I also like to repeat, "relax, relax, relax" to help me just RELAX! Perfect time to mediate, first thing in the morning or as your are going to bed are when I prefer. But if you are feeling like you are about to snap. Go find a quiet place and just clear your head!
4) JUST SAY NO
It's okay to say no to going to a party or gathering. There are so many things to do in this season and sometimes it is just too much. Don't feel like you have to do it all. And the same goes for decorations or other things that pile up. You don't have to bake all the cookies. You don't have to have every square foot of your house looking like a Pottery Barn picture. Decide what you are going to do and do no more.

5) DO SOMETHING FUN AND DON'T FORGET ABOUT YOUR PARTNER
Go get a mani, pedi, take a nice hot bath. Get an extra nap in. Go read a book you have been putting off. Go get a hot chocolate from Starbucks (that's a splurge in our house!) Do something fun that you haven't done in awhile. Make yourself feel special or just get some quiet time away from the stress of everything at home. Or get out and go on a date! Go see a move with your partner or spouse. Go to dinner. Take a walk together. Go bowling. Ice Skating. Go take some you time to take care of you and your relationship with your spouse. If you are feeling stressed, they might be as well. PLUS, it helps make your relationship stronger!

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!!!

Want to start your journey? You can request to join the group here, and I'll contact you with the info you need to get started or you can click the button below to order to get started and I'll reach out to you in 24 hours!

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!”

Not sure where to start in your journey? I can help you with that! Message me on FACEBOOK or Email me me and let's chat!
