I never dreamt in a million years that I would be changing lives on a daily basis like I am today.  When I was a little kid I always wanted to be a veterinarian… until I had to put my first cat to sleep. EEEEK!  I think that’s when I realized I was put on this earth to help people, not animals.  I have ALWAYS loved helping people.  I like meeting people, getting to know them and their triumphs as well as their struggles.  Probably because I know what it’s like to struggle.  I hated it.  Struggling to lose weight, fighting with my thyroid, trying to find the correct balance between eating right and working out was a HUGE daily battle for me.  It was depressing and made me want to never leave my house, never have my picture taken, not be social and hide from the world  (just to name a few things).  That’s no way to live.   I’ve spent the last 28 years designing and developing a program that is practical and easy to implement because I have tried every diet in the book.  What I’ve discovered is DIET’S DON’T WORK!   I’m so blessed I finally get to share my program on a platform that is accessible to EVERYONE (who qualifies) not just to people who live near me.  I have to say…my mindset is what has driven me to be the best version of myself I can be so I can help others be the best versions of themselves.  I work on it daily.  I visualize, meditate and trust that I am doing exactly what I was meant to do…transform lives!!  Are you ready to transform yours?  https://workoutguru.wufoo.com/forms/s1ylqx5r0cb2ldf/

As we head into the holiday “season” full tilt, it will become increasingly impossible to take time for yourself.  Parties to go to, Christmas programs to attend, shopping, wrapping, mailing, missing workouts, eating crap…the list goes on and on.  What can you do to avoid the craziness?  

  1. Take a 10 minute walk
  2. Enjoy the little moments of time whenever you can
  3. Breathe!
  4. Sing, dance and laugh
  5. Set a timer to move (march in place for 1 minute)
  6. Take a nap
  7. Meal prep like a pro
  8. Get in your ZZZ’s

Celebrate Bootcamp with me today in the Octane Studio with a BOSU!  You are gonna LOVE this!  Just show up and I’ll do the rest.  See you soon, Fuel Fitness 12:10

Reminds me of Army Boot Camp. :)

Feeling the pressure of the holiday already?  Well, that’s TOTALLY normal.  But don’t let it SQUASH you and steal your energy!  Here are some things you can do to alleviate the pressure.

  • Get your sleep!  Don’t sacrifice that precious sleep for ANYTHING
  • Drink your water!  Don’t get dehydrated, it steals your energy
  • Prioritize!  Make a list of your top 3 priorities for the day and focus on getting those done ONLY
  • Take a nature walk!  Get some FRESH air and BREATHE the stress away
  • Make a STOP time!  When it’s quitting time…QUIT!  Unplug and be done for the day
