There are no words to describe our last night in Tuscany, Italy. This is what we got to look at while attending Opera in the kitchen.  We got to prepare our own meal consisting of:  Carrot soufflé, pasta, and apple crumble.  WOW was it ever good!!  We were treated to an opera complete with a harp player.  Just absolutely breathtaking!  And can I just say….this picture is NOT filtered!

52 Ideas Quotes About Strength Sports Exercise #quotes

Yep, I just got back from Italy and let me tell you something…they know HOW to make Gelato.  That’s just one of the many things they are doing right.  They really have the food dialed in.  I’ve never in my life eaten such clean, amazingly tasty food.  If you’ve ever been–then you know what I’m talking about.  Here’s my take on what I learned:

  1.  They eat ONLY organic food.  They do not use pesticides, or weed killer.
  2.   They do not drink cappuccinos’ after 11:00
  3.   They do not use microwaves
  4.   They drink wine with every meal except breakfast
  5.   They air dry all of their clothes
  6.   They eat slow food and are a huge part of the slow food movement
  7.   They put olive oil on EVERYTHING
  8.   They eat bread with every meal
  9.   They do NOT overeat
  10.   They have the smallest streets I’ve ever been on

Now of course, I’m generalizing–but truly, the Italians got it going on when it comes to living simply and cleanly.  I was fascinated by their zest for life and for food.  They appreciate the land and utilize it to it’s fullest.  NOTHING goes to waste.  Stay tuned for more on this subject.  And by all means SHARE your experiences!

It’s almost time!!  Have you signed up for the FREE 5 day challenge that starts September 23???  Here’s the link if you want a stronger core!

Do you keep repeating the same weight loss mistakes over and over again?  I get it.  I really do.  It’s easy to do when there’s so much information out there:  Keto, Paleo, South Beach, HCG, Whole 30, Atkins, Raw food, Vegan, the list goes on and on.  I’ve literally tried EVERY diet out there and it’s so easy to get stuck in the weight loss yo-yo lose it, gain it, lose it gain it.  It’s a sad, depressing and lonely place to be.  I HATED the game, because I just didn’t understand how to play.  

HOW do you turn it around and GET OFF THE MERRY GO ROUND!  If you’re sick and tired of repeating the same mistakes over and over then STOP the insanity and ASK FOR HELP!  

I KNOW it’s hard to do.  I had to do it too.  Asking a professional to help sort things out changed my mind, my perspective and my life!  It allowed me to help others GET OFF THE MERRY GO ROUND of yo-yo dieting.  Now I get to change lives the way mine was changed.  

If you want to:

  • look at weight loss with a NEW perspective
  • Learn how to eat for life
  • Understand how mindset plays the biggest part of weight loss 
  • Get a nutrition and exercise strategy that works for YOU
  • Love yourself again

Marine Boot Camp Encouragement Quotes


I mean why not throw some partner strength workouts in while hiking?  First of all….who doesn’t LOVE to get out in the great outdoors?  Second of all, why wouldn’t you take advantage of making it fun and changing things up with some partner squats.  

Let me tell you, there’s nothing like clearing your mind by getting outside and breathing hard.  I haven’t always been a fan of hiking.  It used to KILL me hauling all that extra body weight up the mountain, but I can tell you…when you’re doing it with a friend–it’s not only more motivating, it also helps take your mind off your huffing and puffing.  It’s like anything, the more you do it, the easier it gets.  

Pretty soon your doing it and you’re actually lighter because you keep doing it!  Here’s to breathing hard and stoking the metabolism fire!  

It’s gonna be a SCORCHER!  So, bring WATER we’re gonna need it!  We’ll be outside breathing in the fresh hot air at Boot Camp today!  You’ll need a medicine ball and your smiles!  Fuel Fitness 12:10 – 12:50

Fitness motivation quotes for working out #weightlossquotes

I LOVE prizes!  Especially when I get to give them out!  I thought it would be fun to hold a 4 week challenge with me clients.  Each week there’s a different challenge with a different prize.  Oh JOY! 

Week 1 was a Bad Ass Burpee challenge.  It was only 7 days, but on day 1 they had to do 5 burpees and each day had to add 5 more.  Pretty easy and fun right?  HA!  Congrats to Bad Ass Samantha H. for capturing the Bad Ass Burpee prize. 

Week 2 challenge was eat vegan all week and post a pic of the meal.  Now THAT’S a true challenge if you’re a meat lover!  Congrats to Jacquelyn G. for nailing it! 

Week 3 challenge is the workout challenge.  Every time they workout, they have to post a sweaty selfie and tag us (me and my assistant Samantha). Winner yet to be determined!

Week 4 challenge is going to be the BIGGEST one yet.  It’s the logging challenge.  Log food every day, every meal for 7 days straight.  WHAAAAAAT?  

LOVE me some challenges!  Of course it wouldn’t be complete if there wasn’t a grand prize for the most engaged!  STAY TUNED!  And best of luck to the challengers!

I do a lot of computer work–a LOT and I always have a helper with me.  Sansa is never far away when there’s a blanket and a lap to curl up on.  One trick I’ve learned because I DO sit a lot more than I used to it to drink plenty of water so I’m forced to get up and use the bathroom.  Sansa doesn’t like it much, but my bladder and back sure do.  

Health tip:  if you’re sedentary DRINK WATER!  It forces you to get up and move!


It’s a Group Cycle kind of day today–who’s ready to get their sweat on?  Fuel Fitness 12:10 – 12:50 come and get a wooping!

awesome cycling quotes, great cycling quotes

When I first started working as a personal trainer, I occasionally worked with people who had an injury of some sort that would say “when I do ‘this’ my ‘shoulder’ hurts”.  So, I HATED saying… well, don’t DO that.  It just didn’t sit well with me to NOT be able to help them….so what did I do?  Went BACK to school.  I received my Structural Assessment and Corrective Exercise cert so I wouldn’t ever have to say:  “well, don’t do that” ever again.  Now I get to help people get their functional movement back.  As a Corrective Exercise Specialist, I look the CAUSE of the problem not the symptom.  It’s like putting a puzzle together.  In this pic I’m helping strengthen the rotators, while stretching the anterior delts.  This exercise is for rotator injuries:

  • palms up, hold a resistance band in your hands, pulling it apart using only your muscles between your shoulder blades.
  • release the fascia between the blades first by lying on your back with a tennis ball between your spinal column and shoulder blade looking for pain points
  • elbows can be a 90 degree angle as in this pic, or a 45 degree angle depending on which rotator cuff muscles are affected (always work both arms)

What can I say except….LOOK AT THOSE ABS!!  WOW!  This is ONLY in 8 weeks!  Dory has worked her belly plumb off.  When she approached me about working with me she knew something had to change.  She already worked out, so that wasn’t going to be an issue.  Dory truly thought she was eating right as well.  She knew she probably had a few changes that needed to be made, but wasn’t sure what they were.  I LOVE working with people who REALLY want to change because they DO get the best results!

8 week #testimonial:
scale wins – 13.5 pounds lost.
non-scale wins – I feel overall wellness, have more energy, and while it sounds odd I’m just happier. I so love reading posts and learning through this supportive group. I am inspired by the hard work, determination, and perseverance you all give to improving life!
what I’ve learned – I met my weight loss goal but I’m going for 4 more pounds. Anneliese and I had the conversation that maybe my body won’t cooperate with me. I have struggled to do much more than go up and down a few ounces since I hit 124 a week or so ago. I’m still going for it – gonna Ninja-ize and detox!
I also learned I won’t be good at sustaining unless I find a good meal order service. I soooo dislike meal planning and grocery shopping and have found myself eating the same meals.  Goals for next 4 weeks – Get the final pounds off!! Find a good meal service. ENJOY working out with less weight to haul around! 

Congrats Dory!

One thing I gotta say about teaching a group exercise class is…there’s NOTHING like team work!  Working out in a group setting just gets my adrenalin pumping.  I love it when everyone brings the energy and really helps elevate the workout to the next level by JUST SHOWING UP!  And I don’t mean physically, I mean MENTALLY!  It’s really about having fun WHILE working out. I guarantee it’s possible to get a GREAT workout in while having fun at the same time. 


It’s about attitude.  You can choose to bring a good one, or a bad one, but the bottom line is—when you walk out that door I bet you will have a different attitude than when you walked in!  

“Wow, I really wish I wouldn’t have worked out today!”  (said no one EVER!)

You guessed it!  It’s Group Cycle today!  AND we’re inside with the room ALMOST put together!  I can’t believe it!  Super excited to get our cycle on—-you coming?  Fuel Fitness 12:10 – 12:50!  See you soon!!!!!

Your life is a masterpiece. You're going to see it all some day. God is working powerfully in and through you!
