Arielle’s results you guys….are just….well UNBELIEVABLE!  It’s all about STRATEGY – MINDSET – and ACCOUNTABILITY!!  When you have a plan and you work the plan this is what happens.  When you’re done trying to do it on your own and you ASK for help AMAZING THINGS HAPPEN!  I’m so blessed and honored she asked ME for help!!!  In her words:  

12 week results:
35 pounds lost!
32.2 of those pounds were FAT!
31.75 inches lost!

Alright tribe here it is: I’m so nervous to post these pictures, but also excited. I walked into this journey with tears and I’m ending these 90 days with tears. They both mean something different. The tears in the beginning were fear. The tears now are happiness and pride!

When Anneliese and I had my interview call I left the call frustrated and full of fear. When she asked how ready I was to start, I have her my honesty and said I was an 8, because I was scared of failing and scared of the after 90 days. She told me I wasn’t ready. We decided to sleep on it and talk the next day. I was flooded with emotions, i felt rejected, and didn’t sleep. We visited the next day and after we both had time to think she invited me into the program.

I was ready for change!

Through this program I have had so many non scale wins!

Things I wanted to achieve:
A healthy LIFESTYLE, not just diet.
Weight loss.
Gaining my confidence back.
Healthy foods to cook and enjoy.
Becoming more fit.
Being my happy self again, that doesn’t worry about what others think.


I also noticed:
More consistent sleep.
Less cravings, I don’t reel deprived. 
I don’t hit a wall in the mid afternoon. 
I don’t have to take Sunday naps.
My headaches around my cycle are almost gone. 
My self esteem and confidence is back (my husband even noticed this one).
I’m comfortable in my clothes.
My skin is clear and less dry.
My body aches are almost none.
My inflammation in my wrists and ankles are gone.

I’m speechless! I love myself again. For so long I put myself on the back burner. Through this I have learned that it is okay, and my family supports me when I make myself a priority. My attitude has changed, I’m happier, rather then having inconsistent mood changes. I let things go a lot easier and I don’t dwell in them. I feel amazing!

My next chapter is to lose another 10 lbs, and continue to tone my body. I have a tribe set in place and will and also be in the fit force group. I will miss you all dearly and can’t wait to hear your success. I thank you all so much for the love and support you have given me through my journey. I have built lasting friendship and a tribe!

Thank you Anneliese for believing in me and for all the knowledge you have shared. I am forever grateful!

*side note* in my pictures I chose to not tuck my mid section in my underwear. I wanted to see the changes without hiding anything.

WOW!  

It is a great day to start something big


I know MOST of you are tired of:

😞Searching for the next “best diet” that means you’ll have to RESTRICT YOURSELF from eating foods you LOVE

😞Doing an hour of cardio EVERY DAY to maintain where you are or keep progressing

😞Wanting to LIFT WEIGHTS but having NO IDEA how to start and not COMMITTING to doing it. Do you TRY and then end up back on the treadmill…every time?

😞NOT JUST wanting to “get smaller” but wanting to LOVE the skin you’re in for the way it FEELS, not the weight on the scale.

I get it. I’ve had ALL of these feelings, and I’ve discovered that the MOST EFFECTIVE scientific strategy to success is what most women AREN’T DOING.

Your fitness inspirations are not working HARDER (assuming you work hard but “can’t seem to see results”) they are working SMARTER.

How blessed am I to be able to HELP people reach their BEST versions of themselves.  Check out my dear friend’s transformation!  I couldn’t be prouder or happier for her.  In her words:

90 day recap…, it has flown by!!!!! I am down at least 20 lbs (old scale was off, not sure how much) and the following inches: chest 3, waist 5, butt/hips 3.5, thigh 2 and calf/bicep 1

Those are just the scale wins, as you can see, things look and feel quite different!!! I have more energy, my clothes fit loosely rather than feeling stuffed into them, folks notice how much better I’m feeling and looking! It’s been a mood booster to eat better and see results, I definitely had been eating bloaty empty carbs, lots of sugar and not enough veggies at all. Now I don’t even crave chips etc like I used to and have found healthier versions of sweets if I do need a fix!

I’d say one of my biggest wins was in food and meal prep. I started my journey feeling like I was going to starve cause I didn’t have any ideas what to cook with just veggies and proteins we had for detox. Then I started trying some things and found that I was pretty good at coming up with yummy options that didn’t involve cheese/dairy and breads! I like to eat, so it has been a relief to know that I can still make good stuff without all the added ingredients and processed items! 😂

I have struggled with getting in workouts and not feeling like I’m not having time with my toddler or losing out on what little sleep I get, having said toddler. My goal for next months is to get in workouts on my days off for sure and then workout a couple other times a week.

Congrats girl!!  You’ve EARNED that transformation!  For more information on how you can transform your LIFE check out my 5 day FREE challenge starting April 8th!!  Apply here:

Every day is a new day…  I love sunrises!!  They are truly a promise of  a brand new opportunity.  There’s no looking back, can’t change what happened yesterday–no need to dwell on it.  It’s over and done.  All you can focus on or change is what you can do TODAY to make it better.  This mindset shift seems simple in theory, but harder in real life application.  I coach my clients on this all the time.  Here are some simple tips you can start implementing TODAY!

  1. Journal daily 3 things you are grateful for 
  2. Monitor your thoughts, when you start to go down the rabbit hole–redirect yourself  back to what you’re grateful for
  3. Focus on what you CAN change, not on HOW you can’t (or never will change)
  4. CHOOSE to have a great day
  5. Journal nightly at least ONE thing you are proud of for the day

I promise you implementing ANY of these little tips will change your attitude from negative to positive thinking.  Cheers to transformation!

Transforming isn’t always about losing weight—it’s truly about exchanging what you are doing now that’s making you feel tired, fatigued, unmotivated and unhealthy— for energy, motivation, education, accountability and TRUE health.  Amy is a perfect example of hiring a coach can do for your mind, body and SOUL!  These are her words:

What an amazing enlightenment journey! 90 days has gone by so fast and it’s only the beginning for me. My goal was to lose 10 pounds and tone up, as well as lose a size in my clothes. 
I have lost 6.2 pounds, 4 pounds of which is fat and a total of 5.5 inches. I could not be more excited! Ps down another pound today after this weigh in!
Non-scale wins: 
1. My core and overall strength has increased dramatically.
2. I have lost a size in jeans and tops.
3. I am regaining tone and clothes just feel better on!
4. I have completely changed my diet and am eating clean again.
5. I am happier and more confident.
6. I have started focusing more on my needs.
7. My mind-body connection has rekindled- I had felt lost in that aspect and due to mindfulness, gratitude, and journaling I realize the importance of this daily in my overall health.
8.  I have learned so much more about health and nutrition than I could have ever imagined in this 90 days! 

This is not the end of 90 days, for me it is the beginning of the rest of my years of being on a health and fitness path. I am so grateful and blessed to have had the most amazing coach in Anneliese and the support of the Enlightened Group. Timing is everything, and when you reach that point where you are stagnant, not making progress, or just don’t know where to start, it’s time to admit that you need a help from a power greater than you.
I am so blessed!

My rule of life: #1 "If you want something you never had, you have to do something you've never done."



I remember when I hated the way my clothes fit


when I felt insecure about how I looked in a bikini.


When I struggled to have the energy to get out of bed at the first alarm in the morning.


When I looked at people in shape and wondered if it could be me.


I used to think it would take so much energy I didn’t have.


So much time I didn’t want to spend.


So much pain I didn’t want to experience.


Yet I failed to realize how much time I was spending on trying to distract myself from my guilt and shame.

How much time I spent being unproductive because I was operating at such low energy.


How I lived a dull level of discontent all day, every day, and repeatedly felt bad about myself because of my continual failure to achieve the health and body I wanted.


…the funny thing is, it took me the same energy to be unhappy and unhealthy as it did to be happy with my body and healthy.


I just used the energy positively in a way that supported me, rather than beat myself up and stayed stuck.


Let me encourage you…it’s not harder to lose weight than it is to stay the same. It’s just different actions and feelings.


The right feelings and actions will have you feeling empowered and strong, the wrong ones will have you feeling stuck and frustrated.

I implore you…don’t get stuck (like I did), feeling it’s harder to lose weight and be happy and be unhappy.


It’s just a choice, to be trapped or be free.


So please…as if your life depended on it.

Choose freedom


It Thursday and you know what THAT means….POWER STRENGTH!!  Who’s up for some?  Come and join me in the Octane Studio at Fuel Fitness 12:10 – 12:50!  See you soon…

You got this

So excited to share Elana’s results from the 90 Day Enlightenment program.  Sometimes when you’ve tried every diet in the book, every exercise from Pinterest and going it on your own without any success–it’s time to reach out for help!!  I love her transformation and am so proud of her I just had to share:  

90 Day Testimonial:
I joined Anneliese Swingle’s 90 day enlightened group to make some positive changes in my life, health, mentality and body. My goal was to lose 25 pounds and feel better about myself. As of today, I have lost 19.5 pounds and 16.5 inches overall. Along the way I joined the gym, learned a lot about making healthy food choices, eating enough food with a balance of fat, protein and carbs, reading food labels, THINKING differently about food, and the importance of adding strength training to my workout and not just doing cardio all the time. 
Non-scale wins include no sugar or caffeine for this whole time AND not missing either one! The importance of mindful meditation-thinking differently about food and what goals I want to reach and how I feel about myself.
Several times in the program my weight loss stalled or plateaued but Anneliese always had a word of encouragement and a fix…every time! 
My journey is not over, I INTEND to lose the last 5.5 pounds, keep working out and put everything I have learned in the last 90 days into practice. 
Thank you Anneliese and the whole Enlightened Group for helping me succeed on this program…I appreciate you all!

Group Cycle is gonna happen today in the Octane Studio.  Bring a friend if you’d like.  But either way, there will be sweat, hard work and happiness.  You’ll be SO glad you came.  Fuel Fitness 12:10 – 12:50
