Making You A Priority: Biggest Tip To Rock A Daily Workout


The number one question I get asked all the time is: "how in the heck do you find time to workout daily?" Just a little background, I have 3 kids, 2 of which are home with me all day (well, the now 4 year old does go to preschool 2 days a week but it's only 3.5 hours) I have my own home based Private Music Lessons business teaching piano and french horn lessons and I'm a Team Beachbody Coach, plus I volunteer with the local Municipal Band so we have weekly rehearsals or concerts and I have church obligations, a house to clean, laundry to do, keep my kids from killing each other, keep the hubs happy, make the food for the family and plus I enjoy working in my garden.

The main thing I can tell you is that YOU HAVE TO MAKE YOURSELF A PRIORITY TO GET ALL THIS OTHER STUFF DONE! I feel I can accomplish all this without losing it because I dedicate some of my day to doing what my body and mind needs. And that's exercise. It helps me put the focus on me. I do so much for others. I have to take care of me. It's the whole oxygen mask scenario. Take care of yourself so you can take care of others.
How to make time for your daily exercise? 

1) Pick 1 day a week (I generally do this on Sundays) and plan out your entire week. Write it all out on a calendar. When you wake up, when you get the kids ready, work hours, obligations, church, activities, appointments, sports games/lessons, all of it! Including travel time/get ready time! WRITE IT ALL OUT!

2) Once you do that for the whole week go through each day and look for those small pockets of time from 30-45 minutes. (start small!)

3) Then decide on the time available which would be your best option. Notice: this is before you catch up on your favorite show, binge watch anything or social media scrolling. Make this your priority. Because it is a priority! It is worth it. And you have to commit to that pre-scheduled time. Mark it in your calendar as a non-negotiable. MAKE IT HAPPEN! 

And honestly, once you start doing it consistently, over a good solid 3-4 weeks it becomes a habit. I now know that I am to start my workout daily by 8am! No if and or buts about it! It has to get done because it is 10x harder to get it done later. You made a plan for a reason! STICK WITH IT!

I'm Never Going Back


I love being able to say I will never ever go back to that girl on the left! She used to binge eat 1-2 doughnuts on the way home from the store and hide the evidence from her husband. She ate whatever she wanted because when she had babies she would lose all the extra weight with breastfeeding. She let her weight get totally out of control and didn’t actually believe that she could ever change. 

Today I am fitter, stronger and happier now even though I’m just 3 pounds less than I was from the girl on the left. And I’ve had 3 babies! I finally love my body. I’m not hiding behind my picture smile. I’m smiling because I am literally so happy every day with the amazing things I have accomplished. I’m living my life and no longer have junk food binge sessions that made me want to puke! 


A lot can happen when you change your mindset and decide that enough is enough and that it’s time to make the change. You don’t have to be perfect with your nutrition. You don’t have to exercise every day. But you do have to be consistent wit eating better food choices and consistent with exercising as many days as you can! That’s how you start. Drink more water and eat more veggies and choose to exercise more days than you don’t! (4 days a week is a great habit to start!) Not sure how to get started with your nutrition or fitness? MSG ME! I can help get you started on your journey and you can work one on one with me as your coach! But you do have to put in the work! You are worth this adventure. This investment. This life changing decision. Msg me! Let’s chat!

Overcoming Emotional Eating


2018 is my year for amazing life changing tools being available in my life. First 80 Day Obsession, a way to help me finally enjoy exercise and get real physical changes. Next in May, we get the Mindset change course to help me learn to finally overcome my emotional and stress eating habits. 

Yep. Even with everything I do, the meal plans I follow, I have to work daily to keep my mindset in check. To remind myself that eating the right foods is what my body needs to lose weight. It would be so easy for me to just slip back into my old habits of skipping meals, eat less overall because I am saving my calories for a. Ice dinner out with the hubs or because I over indulged on some sweet or treat. I am literally retraining my brain against the years of “eat less and exercise more” mentality.

You guys, this week I have a new COURSE coming out that addresses ONLY emotional eating (no workouts, they are actually considered extra if you do do them). It's an un-diet that works solely on helping you re-train your brain with what you eat, how you eat and your overall relationship with food.


If you are like me and struggle with emotional eating, grabbing things that are just easier, or just need to work on getting your eating under control before you start a workout program, THIS IS FOR YOU!

This month me and my other teammates are doing a launch party to answer all your questions about this new course! And get you set up and going for success if you are ready to change your eating habits!
THIS LAUNCH GROUP IS INFORMATION ONLY. Want to learn more about it, curious if it is the right fit? Check out the launch group. No obligation. Click HERE to request to join our Un-Diet Launch Party to learn more about the course! (Be sure to say Becky Allen or Connect The Dots Ginger when asked who invited you!)

80 Day Obsession: Final 80 Day Results


Well, the results are in!!! I have COMPLETED the 80 Day Obsession program! But first, you guys, this program has CHANGED MY LIFE! Not only did I lose weight and inches, but I finally have developed a daily habit of loving working out every day. I have finally learned to make better choices with my eating. I am sooooo much stronger than I was just a few months ago and that I think is one of the best things. I am LITERALLY stronger!

WEIGHT LOSS: 8.3 pounds
INCHES LOST: 10.5 INCHES GONE! 

There were days where I struggled. Days that I cried because I didn't think I could do it (hello day 3! That was a huge scary eye opener for me) But I made a commitment to myself and all I had to do was push plan every day and follow the nutrition plan.

All the cover photos for every workout but day 7 and day 14 (they are the stretching. I did them but never recorded! Will this round!) I still can’t believe that I did this. I actually did it. And I didn’t die. I got stronger. I lost weight. I leaned out. I am closer to my goals because as hard as it was I didn’t given up! And that is what counts. I didn’t give up! You can do anything you put your mind to For me now it’s time to do it again. Even today during my first workout of round 2 I was thinking, “I can’t believe I’m doing it again. Why am I doing This again? I must be crazy! No! I’ve got this. I’ve done it and I’ve got this!” When those doubts come into your mind just keep pushing. Just keep doing because you can do hard things. It is worth it! #80dayobsession #impbsessed #teamac #igotthis #fitginger #fitnotfat #strongmom
A post shared by Becky Allen (@sunkissedbecky) on

But today I start again. Round 2 because I still have progress to make before I reach my goals. My goal for round 2, be even better with my nutrition. And push play again every single day and not skip a day! I got this!

Measure Your Weight Loss Progress By Your New Strength


I remember on day 3 I was shaking and struggled holding a plank position and thinking in this very move, “WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING OF DOING THIS PROGRAM!!! This is hard and I will never finish!” Here I am just a day away from completing the program! I have come so far. I don’t struggle like I used to holding a plank. I actually look forward to my workouts. I love sharing about it and helping others start this amazing journey. I have gotten so much stronger mentally and physically. My body has changed for the better and I am doing this. Real change can happen in just a few months time when you are consistent. 

It's so easy to measure your progress by the scale alone, but that scale is a BIG FAT LIAR! If you are feeling frustrated in your journey, just think about how much stronger you have gotten. This is why I take video and pictures. So I can literally see the changes!

Must Have Book To Read in 2018


What I’ve been reading/listening to recently! Girl, WASH YOUR FACE! By Rachel Hollis. You guys if you haven’t picked up this book GO RUN TO THE BOOKSTORE NOW or Amazon or Audible! So great that I have barely been able to stop listening to it. I turn this on first thing in the morning during my daily 20 minute reading time or when I’m getting ready for the day, taking a shower, making dinner. Really anytime I need to take a minute to decompress! 

She is so down to earth real and relatable it’s inspiring. I firmly believe in reading or listening to something daily that lifts you up and helps set your mind in a positive place for the day. Some people call it self help. Some call it personal development. I’m calling it another form of momma sanity saver! (My workout is my other tool to help me be “nice mommy!”) Have you already read this book? What do you love about it if you have? Haven’t read it? Go check it out and share this post with a friend or 2!

Tips To Love The Fitness Journey


It’s easy to look at my INSTAGRAM feed and think, wow! She never misses a day! Obviously I am not thin, or visibly fit. Most people, when I tell them I’m a health and fitness motivator and coach, will do the body scan, oh and that’s happened when I am talking to them face to face or I get a super shocked face from them.

It’s taken me a long while to learn to love this journey for the bigger picture. For my health first and not as a way for me to eat whatever I wanted. For me to feel strong because I am strong. Not to hide my feelings of feeling stuck in my body and not able to do the things I want. I’m working on being the best version of myself. That means I had to learn to embrace this journey for the long haul. I know I’ll reach my goals. I just don’t know how long it will take. This is not a quick fix. This is my lifestyle.


Tips To Learn To Love Your Fitness Journey: 

1) Find a program that you love and enjoy doing. If you love what you do it won't feel like work! 

2) Plan your workout times ahead of time, and stick with the plan. There is nothing worse then trying to find time, or make time in your busy life to fit in your workout. When you make time, you can enjoy it more.

3) Make it fun and have support along the way. Workout with friends. Or have a community where you can post and get support from others around you. This is why I host support and success groups so that you have the community to cheer you on and lift you up along the way! 

4) Life happens, but it doesn't have to happen every single day. Make your workouts a priority to you. Occasionally, life will get in the way of your workout. Sickness happens. Stuff happens. But when 1 NEEDED day off turns into 5+ you have to look at, why you are lacking motivation. What do you need to help you succeed? Then find what it is you think you need and GET IT!

You Are Never Alone On Your Fitness Journey


Being a busy mom with 3 kids I get stuck in kid mode all the time. Saying, "poopy, nummy, boogies, penie (penis for my 3 year old.)" and talking in a voice that is slightly higher and childish can really get old after awhile. I love my kids but I miss having people to talk to. Being a mom can be a lonely thing, especially for stay at home moms. For me, having an adult conversation just didn't happen very often until I found my tribe. I needed a community of people that get me. That would motivate me. I made it my mission to surround myself with people who life me up. With people who make me happy. With people who never judge no matter what. With people who want me to succeed. 

And guys! I have found them. For me, my coaching community is my tribe. This past weekend I got to hang out with a handful of my tribe. It lifted my spirits. It brought happiness into my life. And we are all on the same journey, to reach our own goals and help others along the way do the same! Another part of my tribe is my own health and fitness community on FACEBOOK is my tribe. You reading this right now, you are my tribe. You are the people that get me. And because of you, I push play every day. I finally feel like I can use my normal voice. That I can survive this kid centered season of my life and come out stronger and a normal, social human being.


If you don’t have your tribe. FIND THEM. If you don’t feel like you have real conversations or connect with people. Find your people. Need a tribe? Join my health and fitness community. Search for like minded people around you. Or Ask your friends. See what groups or organizations they are part of and join them. But don’t feel like you have to go through life alone. Because you don’t. Or don’t feel like you have to go through your health and fitness journey alone. Because you don’t. Find your tribe! Chat with them often. Lean on them when you need it. Because you are worth it to have people on your side to lift you up and make you stronger. Find. Your. Tribe.

Total Body Transformation In 10 Weeks


I could feel change was happening with my body but HELLO! Change is really actually happening. In just 2.5 months I have totally reshaped my body. All I’m doing are amazing workouts and simple nutrition that is completely figured out for me. 

To be honest it’s so easy to look at other people who are doing the same program as you who have way more visible progress than you. And I have to remind myself to NOT DO THAT. And we all progress in different ways and pace. At my last check I have only lost 7 pounds. 


But here’s the thing. I could feel change happening on my body. My jeans fit better in the waist, but the Burt was snug. My thighs have looked leaner and they feel I strong! Track your progress by how you feel on the inside and out, clothing fit and be proud of how far you have come because hot damn! YOU SHOULD BE PROUD OF YOURSELF! 

Ready to start your journey to reshaping your body? CHECK OUT MORE about the program I am doing here plus see my results from the full 13 week program and how you can get started on your journey WITH ME!

Progress Is Possible With Consistency


I am all about celebrating Non Scale Victories! Most of the time, I focus more on how I feel or how my clothing are feeling, but DO NOT EVER FORGET how much strength you gain and confidence you gain in yourself through consistent work. Compare these 2 images. I really do wish I had video from the first time I attempted a mule kick at workout day 6, but I don't because I was too ashamed. I got maybe 2 feet off the ground. Now at day 57, because of my consistency and putting my faith, trust with a little pixie, I'm getting closer and closer to doing a full mule kick! And that my friends is EXCITING and something that should be celebrated!

CONSISTENCY! Want to make progress in your journey? Be consistent with eating the right foods. With exercising daily. With following through with your program. When you get off track, that is what is delaying you from reaching your goals. Find a program that you love and keeps you excited. Find support that helps you realize you are worth this hard work and effort! 80 Day Obsession does this for me and I am getting amazing results and Non Scale Victories daily! And with my accountability and support groups I have people to help motivate me, support me and remind me that " You can do this!"

Nutrition: The Real Struggle To Losing Weight


Anyone can workout for an hour, it's controlling what goes on your plate in the other 23 hours that takes real strength! My struggle has, and I think will always be, food. Sweets, treats, goodies all call my name and I have such strong emotional memories around food that it’s hard to keep perspective. I’m an emotional comfort food eater. And Holidays, are one of the hardest times for me. All the candy for Easter and Halloween. All the carbs for Thanksgiving and Christmas. But now I’m working on creating memories of my family and things we did together rather than just the foods we ate. 


It takes real strength to stick with eating the foods you know you should be eating over the foods that you want to to help you feel better. 

This is why I drink my daily cravings crushing shake so I have more control to say no to crap foods and set my day and intentions right.

The best thing you can do for yourself is to cut the crap food that we tend to eat daily. And limit it to occasionally. And the rest of the time use that strength you have in you to eat healthy meals that you make yourself and eat the foods that you know you should be eating!


Tips To Get Started: 

  • Start by making more meals from home and less eating out so you know exactly what you are putting in your body. 
  • Stop eating sweets, treats and salty snack foods daily. Save the treats and goodies for Holidays and special occasions only (and don't make every day something special, even though it is! You know what I'm talking about!) Do your best to eat healthy and clean most of the time.
  • Become mindful of the portion sizes you eat. Eat more veggies than carbs on your plate.
  • Drink more water. Most of us do not drink enough water. Make it a goal to drink at least 1/2 your weight in ounces a day.
  • Get enough sleep. Lack of sleep can actually mess with your nutrition and eating habits. Aim for 8 hours of sleep a night. Missing 1 hour a sleep a night for a week is 7 hours a week of sleep that your body needs!
