Refresh Your Body, Mind, & Soul

Body Mind Soul1 Refresh Your Body, Mind, & Soul

Do you feel like you need to refresh your body, mind, & soul? You are not alone!

I have something BRAND NEW & EXCITING I want to offer to you all!!!

I know from personal experience that the solution to TRUE health & happiness comes from having a healthy body, mind, & soul. You can lose weight or get fit, but results will not last if your mind & soul are not also healthy.

After losing 60 lbs a few years ago I have gained a little weight back a few times, but I have learned that when I gain weight back it’s because my mind & soul are not where they need to be. THAT is where it all starts!

So for the first time ever, I want to offer you an exclusive personal group with myself to work on these areas. Here is what you will gain:

- A healthy body & mind
- Learn to love yourself
- Grow your faith
- Personalized meal plan
- Low impact workout
- Accountability, motivation, & support daily

I only have space to accept 10 new clients & I expect this to fill up QUICK, so message me ASAP to reserve yours! ♥

PiYo Week 3 Update

piyo PiYo Week 3 Update

Happy Tuesday loves! I hope you’re having a fantastic week! I wanted to just give you a quick PiYo Week 3 Update! I am moving to my dream apartment this week, so I may not be around as much with being busy with that. So just wanted to quickly pop in & update you!

Fridays have been rest day from PiYo & I’ve never been more sad for a rest day. These workouts make me SO happy. They pump happiness & love in to me. Before I became a coach I worked out almost every day, but that doesn’t mean I always liked it. But now I am just SO in love with doing PiYo every day! And I’ve never had this much self love before either!  I honestly feel the best I’ve ever felt in my life! Thank you Jesus!

But, to me it’s not most important that I am loving it. My heart has just been SO FULL with the comments from my group of 25 ladies in my exclusive virtual support group. Here is just a few things they have been saying:

Rachael: I just went dress shopping today for my sisters wedding! Now I haven’t lost any weight yet an I still haven’t measured, but I found a dress and it’s a size FOUR!! Before PiYo I couldn’t even zip up a 4 and now I’m ready to rock it next month!!

Beth: I am so noticing that I’m more toned, and now that I’m sort of getting the moves right it’s a lot harder, love it!

LupitaDay 9 for me complete. I will admit all day long I gave myself every excuse in the book as to why I should skip today and do two tomorrow. But you know what…I realized that is why I never made it through TurboFire or Body Beast – because I would skip a day and it just kept adding up. 

That is why I love PiYo, it’s not long on time but it works me out. And I feel even better now after doing it than I did all morning.

And even more exciting!!! My mom decided to join my PiYo support group with us! She has never been interested in doing a workout with me since I became a coach because she feels they’re all so intense. But, when she visited me a few weeks ago she tried it out & loved it. This just makes my heart smile even more because now she will live longer, healthier, & happier. So, that means more time I get with her. YAY!

PiYo Meal Plan & Progress Update

So it has been two & a half week since I started my journey with PiYo & I am telling you, this is the best workout I have ever done in my life!

It was hard for me at first because I like to go, go, go & it’s hard for me to slow down. But, having a combination of Pilates & Yoga has helped me learn how to relax my mind & helps settle me down. It’s now the number one thing I look forward to every day. It’s also nice to have a break from all that high impact jumping {sorry to all you Insanity lovers}.

My favorite workouts so far would have to be Core & Buns. They seem the most intense to me & I feel SO SO sore from them. This morning trying to get out of bed, I felt like a granny walking because my legs were so sore. The benefit is that my core is getting more defined than I have ever seen & my cellulite in my legs looks like it may completely disappear soon {win!}. Ladies will understand that one.

Get Your Kitchen Ready for PiYo!

piyo food Get Your Kitchen Ready for PiYo!

Happy Monday lovelies! I know there are so many of you out there starting PiYo or getting ready to start later this month. So, today I wanted to share with you how to get your kitchen ready for PiYo!

Your results from any fitness program or exercise you do are 80% nutrition, 20% fitness. Mind blowing right?! I always thought if I just worked out really hard I could lose weight (before I lost 60 lbs). I would literally take diet pills, eat like crap, drink a ton of alcohol, but workout & expect it to work. After losing that weight & learning a lot more about nutrition, I still didn’t understand the importance of this until last year. So because of all my struggles I’ve been through, I want to help you get your kitchen ready for PiYo.

I know that this part can be the most overwhelming. If you’re like me, you hate to cook. I love food, but cooking I mean who enjoys that?! LOL. Plus I keep so busy that it feels there’s no time for it. BUT I have embraced meal planning & prepping even though I hate it. Because it helps keep me on track, only takes a couple hours to do, & helps me feel stress free during the week when I’m busy because I can just grab & go.

piyo kitchen Get Your Kitchen Ready for PiYo!

So you may be thinking, “well how do I make time for it? I barely have time to sleep.” Well, I will just say that it’s all about priorities. You will make time for what’s a priority to you. So if you want to lose weight, get healthy, or get those abs that are hiding (like mine do so often :P) then you’ll figure it out. Take an hour off your time watching TV or playing Facebook games & just make it happen. So here’s how to get your kitchen ready for PiYo!

1. Figure out your daily caloric needs & then pick out recipes

2. Write out in a planner your meals for the week

3. Take an hour to meal prep everything for the week

I know this seems daunting, but I promise you once you do it you will feel so much better.

I also wanted to give you some of my meal ideas:

Breakfast
Egg white & veggie omelette with a slice of cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread
Oatmeal & egg white & veggie omelette
Oatmeal with Shakeology (chocolatey & full of protein!)

Lunch
Strawberry, avocado, spinach & chicken salad
Turkey sandwich with veggies
Taco salad

Dinner
Turkey chili
Tilapia tacos
Chicken fajitas

Snacks
Almonds
Fruit
Veggies & hummus
Shakeology

Here is also a video that I made explaining things in more detail if you prefer listening. 

These are just a few tips from the beginning of my PiYo journey. Today starts week 2 & I am SO IN LOVE with this program!! So I will DEF be sharing more tips with you as I go!
