Plus Size Fitness: How To Develop Discipline Over Motivation In Your Health and Fitness Journey


Tell me I can't do something, I'll be the first to show you, I CAN! That's the competitive person in me I learned from being a perfectionist. But, for way too many years, I told myself "I could NEVER do xyz." And I said it ALL THE TIME! Here's the thing, there are so many things I want to be able to do but I still would say, "I could never do a marathon." "I could never actually like to workout every day." "I could never do yoga." "I could never do a handstand."

It wasn't until I finally did things, like really big things in my life, that I started to change my thinking.


  • I wanted a natural, epidural free labor. It took me months of mental prep and I HAD 3! (including a few miscarriages.) 
  • I wanted to run a Disney race, it took me months of prep and massive determination because I ran the Disney Princess Half Marathon at 29 weeks pregnant and completed it. 
  • I wanted to finally get exercise a daily habit, It took me a year of consistently choosing to exercise daily and NOW exercise is just another part of my day just like brushing my teeth! 


And now I've been challenging myself to do the things I never really thought I could do but am doing! Like yoga, regularly. And after a year and 4 months I am doing wall assisted handstands! I'm 240 pounds and I DID A FREAKING VERTICAL HANDSTAND!

ALL OF THESE THINGS THOUGH DID NOT HAPPEN OVER NIGHT! They took months and months of dedication, determination and PERSISTENCE IN MY PURSUIT FOR MY GOALS!

So you want to know how to develop discipline over motivation in your health and fitness journey?

1) PATIENCE - You have to know that change doesn't happen over night. Or in 21 days. Or in 1 month. Or in 3 months. It takes months and months and months of choosing to do the hard stuff over not doing it. Did I want to run 9 miles on a treadmill because it was too icy to do it outside for me since I was 26 weeks pregnant. No but I kept telling myself for MONTHS, "Come hell or high water, pregnant or not, I am running the Disney Princess Half Marathon!" So I did it anyways. All 3 hours of it and 4 bathroom breaks.


2) PERSISTENCE - Do you think I wanted to really workout every day? NOPE I didn't. Sometimes you just have to suck it up buttercup and do the work anyways because how many times before have you said, "I'll do it tomorrow." Girl, today is tomorrow. This is your chance. You don't get this day back. You can't have a do over. Are you willing to look back and see that you choose not to take care of you when you really could have made the time to do it? Today is your day to change your life. SO START and no matter what comes up in your day or life, keep doing it. It's your time for you to better your health!

3) CONTINUING TO CHALLENGE YOURSELF - Last year I was introduced to Donkey Kicks in the fitness program I was doing. It terrified me the idea of kicking up into a handstand. And one of my fellow coaches started doing handstand training to help her get used to and gaining that level of trust in herself to kick up to it. Weekly I did donkey kicks for 9 months. And every few months I tried wall assisted handstands. And at each check they got better and better. More and more in control and comfortable. Until May. When I finally hit a vertical handstand with a little assistance from the wall. I didn't give up on my goal. I kept doing it even though the idea of my arms holding me up scared me. The idea of falling over and whacking into the other wall and getting hurt scared me. I did it anyways because I made a goal for myself!

4) ACCOUNTABILITY - This is a big one. Because when you have to show up for someone else, you are more likely to follow through than drop the ball. When you have someone that you check in with to help you along, to encourage you, or to tell you to get off your duff and do it anyways, you are going to show up! What drove me to push play every day was the fact that I was sharing my journey with my coach and support group and all of social media. Now you don't have to share your journey on Insta but when you have a coach or a support community you are part of and you commit to, YOU SHOW UP! People were counting on me to check in and show up with my progress. So even though I didn't want to. I did it anyways!

Plus Size Fitness: Strong & Sexy Leg Exercises

I have finally fallen in love with my legs because I've worked hard to make them SEXY AND STRONG! And I want to share my favorite moves with you!

Using medium to heavy weights or optional weights, complete of 12-15 reps of all 4 moves (on each side for the Side Lunge Back Lunge and Split Squats). Then repeat with a second set of 12-15 reps.

Move #1: Squat with Knee Lifts
With legs hip width distance start standing, then lower yourself into a squat position, keeping your knees behind your toes. As you lift back to standing, raise your knee to parallel or higher using your lower abs to lift your knee. Lower back down to a squat, then raise to standing lifting your opposite knee, and repeat until you have completed 12-15 reps.

Move #2: Side Lunge Back Lunge
Start with your feet together standing tall. Step your Left foot out to the side for a lateral side squat. Keeping your left knee bent and behind your toe and the weight in your heel and keep your right foot planted to its starting position and straight. Return to standing by pushing from your left heel (to engage your butt) and stand up straight again. Then step back with your left leg to a lunge position, aiming to have a 90/90 position with your legs. Again, keeping your right knee bent and not going in front of your toes. Putting the weight in your right heel to help you stand up to a standing position. Repeat all reps on the single leg moving then switch sides and complete the sequence for 12-15 reps.
 
Move #3: Split Squats
Position your legs into a Staggered Stance --one foot in front of your body and the opposite behind with the heel off the floor. Goal is to lower down to a 90/90 leg position keeping your front knee behind the toes. I like to think of it like you are going up and down a carousel horse. As you stand, keep the weight in your front heel and back toe.

Move #4: Sumo Squats
With your toes pointed outwards, and standing in a wide stance. Lower down, keeping your knees from caving inward and your butt going straight down like you're sliding against a wall. Then raise back up keeping the weight in your heels pushing evenly.

Think You're Too _____ To Workout? #FitHasNoSize


BEING A FIT PERSON IS NOT DEFINED BY YOUR SIZE! #FitHasNoSize! I'm here to tell you, you can do any workout, maybe not the whole thing on day 1 of trying, but eventually, YES you will be able to do the workouts you never thought you could and BEYOND!

I'm 240 pounds an I'm doing an EXTREME PLYOMETRICS workout. Was it easy? Hell no! I worked hard, and was totally toast by the end of the workout, but that is exactly what should be happening in a workout. You should be fighting so hard to push yourself and do your best that you need to take a beat at the end and just realize what you just accomplished! Check out my Instagram post below.


I hear from women every day that I'm inspiring them to believe that they could possibly have a chance to achieve their goals but "I could never do that!" "Why?" I ask. "Because I'm too: old, fat, overweight, not flexible enough, I've tried before but..." It's time to use posts like this to inspire you to take action and actually try. To stop comparing your day 1 to somebody else's because it will not be anything like what I'm doing right now or some other fispo IG'er. I'm on day, gosh, 693, and yes, I still have a long way to go in my journey, but...ACTION is what really makes the change happen for you.


TIPS TO GETTING STARTED ON YOUR JOURNEY:

1) STOP making excuses for why you can't do something. Eventually, with enough consistency you will be able to do what you intend to do. But it takes practice, patience and a whole lot of work. One does not learn to play a Mozart Sonata the first day of piano lessons. It takes years of learning, training and practicing. Same thing with exercise.
2) MODIFY, MODIFY and MODIFY! I was the modifying queen in the beginning. I literally had to modify every move and literally couldn't do many of the moves for the entire 60 seconds (the program has you complete a single move, as many as you can, in 60 seconds) And then I had to pause my DVD, sit down and catch my breath. My 30 minute workouts took well over 45 minutes to complete. But...I kept pushing play, I kept doing all the moves, and I didn't give up.
3) CELEBRATE every time you do something you didn't think you could. NOT with food, but do a little dance, tell your friends, and share it on Social Media. "OMG! I JUST DID 10 PUSHUPS and x weeks ago I couldn't do ANY!" Because you are the one who's now inspiring others. That way you are getting support from your community. It comes full circle girl!
4) KEEP GOING and don't let yourself get complacent. Years ago, right after I had my second baby, I had completed 3 rounds of doing 21 Day Fix, I knew all the jokes, I just lost my mojo and excitement. MOVE ON TO ANOTHER PROGRAM! It's okay to try something else and then go back to your "home base" That's the beauty of our online fitness library is that we have over 40 full programs and 800 separate workouts to choose from. There is not a lack of things to do to keep you motivated and moving on. Not sure what to do next? Well, That's what I'm here as a virtual coach. When you work with me I have the privilege to help you with as your personal 1:1 coach, I can help you find a program that will fit in your busy life and goals.

The #1 Reason You're Not Seeing As Much Progress On Your Fitness Journey

This post contains affiliate links.

I am the energizer bunny when it comes to exercising daily. I've been exercising consistently, 5+ days, a week from December 2016 until I had my emergency appendectomy in August 2017 and then had to take 8 weeks off and then jumped back in October 2017. And with all that exercise, I got some really great results. But...I didn't get the change I have really been waiting for. MORE FAT LOSS LEADING TO DEFINITION! 

Just to put this out there, I'm 240 pounds. I'm still in the middle of my fitness journey. I have a ways to go to be at what is considered a healthy body fat percentage of 24%. But...From January 2018 to May 2019, I have lost 7% body fat, and only lost 2 pounds. I have been working on having a STRONG body. A body that can hold me up and not feel weak. A Body that moves and has more range of motion. A Body that has more endurance. A Body that just functions better. A body that looks strong. A body that is lean and defined.

I am getting that body! But...Just like any other woman out there, I FREAKING WANT THAT SCALE TO GO DOWN! And the #1 reason why the scale isn't going down comes down to NUTRITION! Check out the differences between these 3 pictures. 

May 2018: Following a nutrition plan, but not 100%, more like 75%

March 2019: Following a nutrition plan, more strict and increased my cardio.

May 2019: FOLLOWING MY NUTRITION PLAN TO A T and it is showing! I'm doing the Faster Way To Fat loss program that implements Carb Cycling and Intermittent Fasting (My coach is AMAZING and I've linked her direct page!) using the knowledge I have learned using my Ultimate Portion Fix perfect portion containers to make sure I'm not over eating on food groups. That I am eating all the food groups my body needs, and keeping my portions in control. I think it's working, don't you? 
What did I do? I got SERIOUS about my nutrition. I changed things up and went 1 step farther than I have before. Not going to lie, the program I'm following right now is intense and a little more work involved than I like to do (I like to keep things simple). But I needed this in my life right now. I personally have to just dig my heels in and do the hard sh^&! And I wouldn't have been able to do it if I didn't have my knowledge and experience using the Ultimate Portion Fix containers for the past 4 years. And that's why I think they are the best way to start, because it's simple, easy to follow and takes all the guess work out. Giving you education so you learn the right foods you should be eating, how many servings of each food group category you should have each day because we need to eat all the foods including carbs and even sugar (occasionally) and learn what foods work best for your body. It's about learning to fuel your body and help it function better and that is what is going to make the biggest difference for a longer time. 

TOP 5 TIPS TO JUMPSTART YOUR PROGRESS: 

1) DRINK MORE WATER - Drink at least 1/2 your body weight in ounces a day of water. If you exercise, drink more than your minimum by another 8-20 ounces making sure you stay plenty hydrated. 

2) STOP EATING PROCESSED/BOXED FOODS: This is a biggie. Not only do they have tons of excess sodium (which will make you retain more water and swell up) But they are often empty calories and we consume way more that we should. Think about Doritos. Can you really just eat just one? Don't bring them in the house. If you have to have processed foods occasionally, buy a single serving that way it's portioned out and you don't have the rest of it telling you to consume it!

3) MAKE YOUR OWN HOMEMADE FOODS - Not only will you end up saving money, yes it's true! but when you make your own food you control what goes in it and you know what goes in it. There are tons of amazing recipes out there. My Favorite come from the cooking show, FIXATE, which is included in my fitness library membership. Not only do we get instructional videos but the recipes, and it breaks down what food category they use. There are recipes for everyone from Vegan, Vegetarian, Paleo and Gluten Free. PLUS you can also buy the FIXATE COOKBOOKS if you aren't ready to invest in the membership! 

4) MOVE YOUR BODY - I'm a personal trainer and I will always tell you to just move your body more. It does amazing things for your body and digestive track. Feeling "stuck" go fo a walk and it helps to make things moving in the right direction. Plus when you exercise you tend to want to eat better. They work hand in hand. Need workouts to help you get started? our fitness library is stocked with well over 600 workouts. Plus me as your coach to cheer you on...If you're ready, let's do this! 

5) SLEEP BETTER - Aim for 8+ hours a night. Not 5, not 6, not 7 but really work hard to hit at least 8 hours. If you get 8.5, GREAT! Your body needs to rest and recover and sleep helps with that! (Speaking of, it's currently 10:07pm, that means I finish this post up later cause I gotta get my 8+ hours sleep too!)

When The Scale Doesn't Go Down And You're Stuck In A Plateau...What Do You Do?

Affiliate links included in this post.

I'm calling it right now. I've been stuck in a plateau for MONTHS even though I have been exercising 5+ days a week for the past year and a half and even though I was eating pretty well. But...what do you do when you're stuck. In the past I would have thrown my hands up in the air and gave up, but NOT ANY MORE! 

What causes plateaus? 

1) How much sleep are you getting? Your body needs sleep. Actually it needs a lot of sleep. Sleep helps the body repair and rest from your exercises, movements and over use, keeps the mind functioning better. Aim to get AT LEAST 8 hours a sleep at night. YES the whole 8 HOURS AT LEAST! I know this sounds so weird, I used to aim for 7-8 but  now, 8 is my magic number. Ever since I got my Apple iWatch I've really been diligent on tracking my sleep with the Autosleep App. Aiming not only for 8 hours but watching my deep sleep. 

2) Be mindful of exactly what you are eating. Are you really following your meal plan or just kind of sort of following it? This is my deal. I'm about 80% eating really, really well and following my plan (okay maybe 75%) and then I still allow myself to eat treats, in moderation. This idea is great when you are in MAINTENANCE MODE but not when you really have to get the weight loss going. You have got to be on it like Donkey Kong. Log all your meals. If you bite it, write it! In my exclusive group we have a food log tracker, and many of our programs include a tracker too or you can use the My Fitness Pal app to track your  macros! 




3) Not changing your workouts up. Your body actually acclimates to doing the same workouts over and over again. Like if you just do bicep curls with an 8 pound weight for 3 months in a row expecting to see mass built in your bicep, it's not going to happen. You have to challenge yourself in new ways. Change it up. Do other exercises that work the same muscle but in a new way. Pushups with a leg lift, or hammer curls, or even doing half reps, reps that only go up half way or start halfway and go to the top! That's why I LOVE the Beachbody On Demand online streaming library. We have access to over 40 complete programs (that's way more than 600 workouts), plus trainer tips, tracker sheets, meal plans, nutrition plans, recipes and even a healthy cooking show geared towards perfect size portions that are simple to make and yummy to eat! 




In the end you need to focus on letting your body rest, eating your best and changing it up in your fitness routine every now and then. Sleep, Nutrition and Movement. These are the 3 vitals to rock your progress! 

Looking for help with your nutrition or fitness journey? My next group is starting soon and I'd love to help you on your journey! EMAIL ME or Send me a Private message on INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK and let's start the convo on how you can get back on track without having to cut food groups, reduce your calories and can do it all in your own home with workouts from 20-60 minutes a day!

Ultimate Portion Fix Nutrition: It Really Works!


I had a realization today that I have completely changed my diet from fast foods, processed foods and actually enjoying eating whole foods. This is exactly what we are learning in the new nutrition focused learning course I’m currently learning from and getting certifying in. 

That moment when you realize you have transition to a mostly plant based diet and actually LOVE eating the foods! That's a big freaking deal! No I’m not vegan, I still eat animal meat and dairy, but most of my meals, LOOK LIKE the picture above now! A new to me recipe from our Fixate Cooking Show available on Beachbody On Demand: Fitness and nutrition online streaming. 

My meals consist of Kale, spinach, sweet potatoes, quinoa, asparagus, cucumbers carrots, bell peppers and more. They all fill my fridge every week! 10 years ago I would have gagged every bite down of this meal but now I can eat kale, spinach and other veggies without any resentment. 


For the longest time eating healthy was a punishment for being overweight or eating too many sweets or treats or a way to justify eating whatever I wanted later. Now food is my fuel. Foods that make my body function at its best and do good things for my body and helps support me in my daily workouts. And yes I’ll still have a doughnut or other sweets and treats occasionally but I’m learning healthier ways to make them and moderation / control so that I stay on track with my goals!

I know there are a lot of diets and theories out there but what if you could lose weight without restricting or cutting out food groups? JOIN my Summer Ready Bootcamp!

Tidying Up Your Fridge


I just #konmari my fridge! --well not many storage containers holding everything separately but still, it's super organized and clean! You know, from the Netflix show Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.  This past month my family has not only have chosen the clothing that sparked joy in our closets but, I took it a step further and went to my fridge. Because really, does it bring you joy to open your fridge and see the options you have for yourself in there? If not...keep reading! 

How many times have you gone to the store and over spent on foods you didn’t really need or ended up having to throw out spoiled foods from good intentions that never happened or literally have ZERO space in your fridge because you keep eating out? We used to buy all the food and go out to eat (a lot more than we budgeted for) and wasting so much money, throwing out food that went bad because we spent our hard earned $$ on groceries and eating out. 2019 Is our year to make a change! 

BEST HEALTHY LIFESTYLE ORGANIZING TIP:  To keep your fridge organized and healthier foods in your house: Only buy the foods that you know you are going to eat and use and that are the best food for your body so that by the next time you have to go to the store, your fridge is ready to be filled! That’s exactly what happened to us this past week. Even Collin was saying “MOM! We need to go to the grocery store. There’s no food!” What he didn’t realize is that I had a plan and I stuck with it. 

Using everything we had before going back to the store:

Fully Stocked:

It’s about committing to your journey and keeping your family healthy! Changing your lifestyle takes discipline and consistency. You have to make that choice to make time to meal plan in advance. Include date night, or pizza night. Or even salad from Chic-for-a. What’s on the calendar is what’s going to happen. 

Additional Tips:
1) Make a grocery list that align with the foods you are going to make and only buy foods that are on your list. 

2) Stick to your meal plan by having meals or items prepped ahead of time or making sure that your meals are easy in the first place. Or have an easy backup meal ideas that still align with your goals. If I don’t want to cook we have a YO-YO Night (you’re on your own). Kids pick what they want (usually cereal) and I have my easy to make daily superfood filled shake. 

3) Be persistent in your consistency. Just like health & fitness. Dig your heels in. Remind yourself why you want to make this change! 
You can do this! 

Need healthy recipes your whole family will love? Did you know we have a cooking show with amazing recipes included in our fitness and nutrition memberships? Yep! Complete health, fitness and nutrition solution for you and your family! Just order and I'll be in touch to get you plugged into my exclusive health and fitness virtual gym community and help you not only get started right but stay motivated to keep going LONG TERM! I'm determined to rock my journey and just as determined to help you succeed!
