Am I evolving?

“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.” - Earl Nightingale I borrowed this quote from a very good friend of mine on facebook (Shout out to Leslie! :) ...I've had an emotional  week, but filled with good energy! I've realized so much,  that I have no idea where to start telling you my breakthroughs! lol Its a good weird feeling. I feel like I am bursting with energy, but because by nature I am just such as quite mellow person that I don't know if people who see me can tell that I am about to burst out of my bubble! but  I am!

I decided to respond  to my own coach, and accept a challenge she posted.  The challenge was to become Diamond in the next 7 days!..now to give you some background of myself, I am a very religious/spiritual person.  I believe in God 100%, and I do talk and pray to him everyday.   Now do I belong to a church? no....I do however consider myself catholic since I was raised within that church, but I digress.  My point is this, just on Monday I was talking/praying to God to help me and my two sponsor coaches move our business into the right direction.  I told myself, I need to sign up a coach this week to lead by example! And then here comes Coni (my coach :) with this e-mail, reaching out to her downline, not only with a challenge thrown out there, but with the caring and compassion that she will help you, within her power, to get you where you want to be.  I was like, THANK YOU GOD FOR LISTENING! He sent me a friend to help me breakthrough!  I am feeling pumped not only with my own fitness, but in really growing my own business!  I am not here to sell you anything, however, if you are thinking about buying any beachbody products, why not me?  why go through beachbody informecials, or website?  Not only would you get personal attention, but you would be helping a friend out, plus its a bit cheaper buying through a coach..anyway I digress again....

Specifically, I am calling to all of you who want more out of your lives to be part of my team! I am here, I am committed and I won't let you down!  I told my brother something along the lines, that I was inviting him to join my teambeachbody not just because I want to succeed for myself, but I truly, from the bottom of my heart believe in this business! and if I am confident I can make it work for me, then he knows I wont steer him wrong! I want the same success for him!  When family work  together there is an extra incentive to make things work! Now, I know I am not family to you, and you might say "yeah right" but if this is for you, I won't let you down, I am not going anywhere.  Iam committed to this business.  I want to make more money (I do have 5 kids!) and if I can help you do the same so much the better! we can be a team of truly dedicated people helping others, motivating others...its a good thing, this business is not just about You - there  is no selfishness.  Now don't get me wrong I love my job, I am an accountant at heart and I am very loyal to my current employer (they did bring me back to California), however, I do need to make extra money on the side...who doesn't? so please do contact me if you want to learn more about the beachbody coaching business, how it works I am here to share!

Work with what you've got!

Who is learning to roll with the punches and make the best with what they have? ME! I can complain about not having the necessary tools for me to succeeed with my goals...however the amount of energy I would probably spend in my rant, is probably around the same amount of energy I would spend if I just work towards my goals with the tools that I do have! Would I love to go the gym and pump iron like a serious athlete? Sure! but I don't have time or money really, HOWEVER I do have Chalene Extreme and guess what? In Home Fitness Programs work!I am feeling stronger! and I actually see my frame shrinking a bit. There is no need for bulky machines, and whenever I see myself free of at least 40min, what do I do? I pop in a DVD.  Must I plan my workout time? kinda, I must somewhat have a general idea of when I am going to squeeze it in. I either get up at 5:30am or I make sure everybody is settledown by 10pm so that I can get my work out in before I go to bed. But I save myself time from driving to the and from the gym :)  I won't get long winded, but if all you can do is a 20min walk that day, go for it!, is it only 10min? go for it, don't get dissapointed that you don't have more time even if its only 10min a day.... that is 70min in a week of cardio! you should feel very proud of what you can do for your health everyday, even if its a little thing that you can't see a big difference immediatley, its all about delay gratification. Those small steps you take and do everyday will compound and you will feel much better for it!

If you are ready to take your health to the next level and what to join me on my 2nd round of Chalene Extreme, visit my site to order :)

Whats my Status?

Hi Friends!

Well its been a while since I blogged, not because I haven fallen of the wagon, simply I haven't had time to blog.  Is that really true?  well that was my excuse, and then it hit me....we are all busy, we all have tons to do and I decided to take control of my time!  Its not enough to have a to do list up in my  head like I normally do.  I need to write it down, and take it a step further and actually put a time frame.  Now don't get me wrong I am not cumpulsive with my to do list, or follow it to the "T" I am more general with it.   For example today I put down "Blog - From Noon to 12:30", "Workout - from 9:30pm to 10:30pm"  I've found that by doing this my time doesn't get consumed by other stuff, and neglect any work or family time :) Its been awesome! Now I know Istill need to improve my time management, but at least I don't feel like I am all over the place and I am focusing on simple tasks that are not overwhelming.   Its all about being consistent, right?   Now I apologize for any grammar and spell check, BUT I am must stick to my schedule and the point is to get the message accross in the time that I specified lol...

So I am so close in finishing up the Chaleane Extreme program.   I've noted changes in my body that are amazing! Not so much on the scale, but my arms are slimmer, still fatty, but I can actually see a difference now.  I am convinced that I was real ninny about Strenght Training and lifting heavy! I am now a  believer of going heavy or going home!   So if you want to give it a go, and order the program, please do so from my beachbody coach website! http://www.shygirlfitnessnow.com/  I can root for you all the way!

I also started training for a Mud Run training! http://www.downanddirtymudrun.com/ I figure it is time to go beyond my comfort zone, and this was a good place to start! now granted I am only doing the 5k, which comes out to like 3miles or so, but I am not a runner! specially  a runner where I have to overcome obstacles lmao, but I am going to do it anyway!  We see changes when we do more!

So basically I have 3tips to share :)  Stick to a schedule for the activities you wish to accomplish that day, If you are afraid of weights, don't be, they will slim you down, not bulk you up (its very rare if they do bulk you up), and do something you've never dreamed of doing, you will be amazed with your own "wowness"

Till Next Time!
