After a long silence!

I know it's been a little while since I wrote one of these. I have been kind of busy and really just forgot to write. I have been trying to train for the half marathon in September and I think that time is not on my side here. I can barely make it to 5 miles right now. I think I might just do the 10k this year and then keep trying to up my miles for next year. I can barely get to the gym to run on the treadmill more than 2 or 3 days a week and that is mostly on the weekends. I am on weeks 5-7 of my P90X. It's starting to get really easy so I am thinking of starting a hybrid. I feel like I should be doing more and I'm starting to plateau. So its time to kick it up a notch! Just gotta make up my mind as to what hybrid I would like to do. There are alot of good workouts out there. There is also the money issue that stands in the way of buying it. I have lost 2 more inches from the last blog post. I am now in a size 8 jean! I am very close to that bikini this summer. I am extremely excited about shopping for bathing suits! It will be strange looking for a bikini LoL Shopping has been something I always dreaded. I have always hated to go and not be able to just pick something up and it fits. Walmart had a huge clearance rack and I picked up a pair of jean shorts and they were size 8. They fit me perfectly. It's so easy now! Before I used to have to comb the racks just to find the plus sizes then to find something cute that I actually wanted to wear. I am very proud of where I have come this year and hope that I am inspiring other people to do the same. It's not easy but if you are determined then there is nothing you can't do.

Week 3 of P90X

I am starting Week #3! I am so happy I started this workout program. So far I feel like I have lost inches. Weight is staying about the same. I have now started Shakeology and replacing a meal with it. I have also started training for the half marathon I will be doing in September. I figure I should be ready by then right?? I will be doing my measurements to see how much I have lost in inches and update you next week with pictures and measurement changes. 

I am also looking for anyone who is focused on fitness and weight loss to join me in my business. Anyone who loves to help others. You don't have to be skinny and fit. You just have to be focused on your fitness goals, helping others reach their fitness goals, and want to make extra money with some AMAZING products! Message me for details!

Week 2 of P90X

So it is now Week 2 of P90X. Here are some pictures of my progress:

I think there is some progress :) I still have ALOT of work to do but I got this!! I was recently in the YMCA's Downtown Weighs in and came in 10th place losing 10.4 pounds! Not bad considering I don't have alot to lose right? Anyway I had to stop P90X for a few days because of the sickness that is everywhere, but I am back to it and loving it! I really enjoy P90X and think the workouts are amazing!

P90X = Amazing Workouts!!

I have finished my first week of P90X. I had to stop in the middle because a sickness took over our household. Yes the dreaded flu hit all of us! I am over it and back in the game. I missed it after 3 days of being sick. These workouts are fun! They are so motivational too! Tony really makes you feel like you can do it. There is alot on there that I am not very good at, but I am hoping that I will get better at it. Tonight I did Kenpo X and this workout is amazing! I was having fun and sweating by the time I was done! Time just flew by. I was sad to see it end. So far since I started this I have lost 2 lbs. Which isn't bad because I don't have that much weight to lose. I want to tone my stomach up so I am mainly concentrating on that right now. I want that bikini this summer! 
I am still looking for people who want to focus on their fitness goals. I want to help you do something amazing for yourself. I know I feel so good about what I did so why not you? 
The next thing I am going to start is Shakeology. These shakes are so good for the body! They have vitamins and minerals and help build the immune system along with tons of protein!! They are supplement shakes that I will use either for breakfast or an after workout drink. Im so excited to try these and see if they help me lean up faster. 

Curious about P90X, Shakeology, or the other amazing Beachbody products? My websites:

This is me right now. Starting P90X this week! I am on Day 3 and it has so far been challenging and yet doable. I love to feel challenged in my workouts. If I feel sore and tired afterward, then I am doing a good thing! I will be updating my picture as I go through this 90 day process. I am also dedicating myself to logging all my food everyday. I am doing a challenge group on facebook as well so I am helping others through coaching them with health and fitness techniques that I have learned in this 3 year journey. If you want to join my challenge, there is still time! go to my website and pick your workout. Then go to my facebook page: and let me know you want to join and make a better you this year. I am so dedicated to this. I WANT to love myself and be the type of person I always wanted to be. I have already lost a whole person in weight so now it the time to clean it up! Hopefully after this 90 days I will have a bikini body! *fingers crossed*
