Just Go For It

I’ve been taking a lot of risks lately – not physical risks like skydiving or bungee jumping…but more of the emotional type of risks.

I have just been going for it – and guess what?  It feels AHH-MAZING!

I’ve been reaching out to people and asking them to be a part of my team (Team Fight For Fit).  I’ve been asking people if they would like to join challenge groups to work on their health and fitness.  I have been connecting with old friends I haven’t seen in a while (like years) and asking them to hang out.

I am going after what I want.  I am going after what I want my life to look like.  I’m being more authentically ME.

Even when the people I reach out to don’t respond or they say no – you know what?  I feel PROUD.  I’m proud of myself.  Proud that I tried.  Proud that I won’t keep wondering “what if” because now I have an answer.

The rejections I get.  The silence on the other end.  It means I’m LIVING.  It means I’m working towards my dreams.

And do you know something else I’ve recently realized?  It’s not about whether the person says yes to joining my team or not.  It’s not about whether the person responds or not to my offer…it’s actually NOT about the outcome at all.

Before, I used to think it was ALL about the end result.  That’s how you measure success – how many “yes’s” you get, how many people you recruit, how much money is in the bank – BUT I’m here to tell you it’s NOT!

As I put myself out there more and more, share my personal thoughts and feelings, share my transformations (inside and outside) I realize it’s all about the PROCESS.  It’s about who I am becoming.

I am becoming STRONGER.  More confident.  More sure of what I want for myself.  Of who I want to be.  Of my purpose in life (besides wife and mother).

So, today I say to you:  Do what scares the CRAP out of you.  Do that one thing that you are afraid to do.

Climb that wall.  Jump that hurdle.  Because, what’s on the other side is BEAUTIFUL.  It may not look like what you expected, BUT it’s beautiful all the same.

 

 

Make the Shift

Let’s talk shop…SHIFT SHOP!

Shift Shop is Beachbody’s newest program and it does NOT disappoint!

It is geared for ALL fitness levels.  There are modifications for beginners and there are hard core moves for fitness gurus.

Chris Downing is the newest super trainer for Beachbody and he is genuintely motivating and encouraging.  He lifts you up.  He makes you feel good.  He makes you feel like you CAN.

He pushes you.  He works with you.  He gives you EVERYTHING you need to get RESULTS – fast!

Here is the official blurb:

Using a breakthrough “ramp-up” method, Chris starts you out slow in Week 1 with 25-minute cardio and strength workouts you can really do, and a nutrition plan you can stick with. In Week 2, you push harder with 35-minute workouts, and consume more protein to fuel the burn. But it’s nothing you can’t handle. Finally, in Week 3, you kick your shift into high gear: 45-minute workouts and clean eating.

Can you really get results in 3 weeks?  YES!

This is me…16 days into Round 1!

Now…I’ll be honest with you (because you can always get that from me).  I didn’t stick to the meal plan all that well.

I’ve been traveling.  I’ve been staying with my in-laws for the past few weeks BUT I’m not saying I’ve been eating like crap either.  I have been doing my best.  I have been drinking Shakeology daily.  I have been eating clean (the majority of the time).

I think that if I stuck to the meal plan that is prescribed with the exercise program I would have seen even BETTER results in 16 days.

So, with that being said…I am about to start Round 2 on Monday, August 7th along with a whole bunch of other ladies who are ready to get it in gear and MAKE THE SHIFT to a healtheir, more confident version of themselves.

For Round 2, I will be more dilignet about sticking to the meal plan.  (I will still be out of town for the first week, BUT I will do my damndest regardless).

Why am I telling you this?  To hold myself accountable!  It’s one thing to say it in my head but it is a completely different thing to say it out loud….to put it out there on the internet for all to see.

To honor the fact that I am planning to really ramp up my nutrition (along with my fitness) – I wanted to share a few of the recipes that are in the Shift Shop meal plan (These recipes are approved for Week 1):

Introducing Team Fight For Fit

In honor of the fact that I have FINALLY picked a name for my growing team of BeachBody Coaches, I wanted to share what this team is all about!

TEAM FIGHT FOR FIT

I have been racking my brain for a year (literally) with what to call my team.

WHY?

Because our name needed to convey our true identity .

Our name has meaning.  It has purpose.  It describes our mission – what we stand for and what we want for ourselves and others who join us.

Fight For Fit means we NEVER stop working on our health and fitness.  We fight for ours and we fight for others to do the same.  We show other Mamas out there that it is NECESSARY and POSSIBLE to take care of themselves.

We want you to know that you need to FIGHT for what you want- how you want to feel on the inside and look on the outside, how you want your life (all aspects) to look and the type of person you want to be.  All of this goes hand in hand and makes up your level of “fitness”- mental, spiritual and physical.

ANYONE can have this – the level of “fit” they desire.  Whether you are a mama of a 2 year old, tantrum-throwing toddler or a mama of 3 kids in college, YOU can do this.  You too, can FIGHT for what you want…for what FIT looks like to you.
