Mexico 2018, aka My Earned Vacation

I posted a few weeks ago about my trip to Mexico and how it even came about, and I wanted to share some overall thoughts and pictures from our trip.

It was SO MUCH FUN.  We really needed that time away to just be together for a couple of days and it was a blast!  We enjoyed the food, the gorgeous ocean views, a couples massage, an excursion to Tulum to see the Mayan Ruins, and just hanging out with absolutely nothing on the agenda.  And, of course, some awesome live workouts with my favorite trainers! 😉

Robbie actually came to one of the live workouts with me which was a lot of fun.  He is very competitive, so I knew that even if he struggled through the workout that he wouldn’t let me last longer.  We were both struggling!

It was really so awesome to be on this trip with so many other coaches, knowing that we had all worked to help people change their lives to earn this trip.  I loved having Robbie be able to experience this company and what we do for people–and what they have done for us!  He has always been supportive of my business, but it’s different when you can experience it for yourself.

My favorite parts of the trip, besides just being there, was finding one of my FAVORITE trainers at the pool and him letting me take a picture with him.  So cool!!!! I fangirled hardcore and definitely was a weirdo.  The other favorite part was having Robbie tell me that he was thankful for me earning the trip for us and that next time we would have more people from our team there.  OUR team.  Love that!

I’ll be working hard to change even more lives this year to earn a spot on the 2020 trip–will you be there with me?  Fill out the “Join My Team” application link above and let’s work together to change lives!

My 80 Day Obsession Results!

I might be a little tardy to the party with sharing my overall results, but I am still THRILLED with this program and what it has done for me!

When I started this program back in January 2018, I was stuck at an unhealthy weight and in unhealthy habits.  I knew the steps I needed to take to get out of my rut, but I was really struggling with actually making it happen.  This program is exactly what I needed!  The challenge of both the longer, more intense workouts PLUS the different meal plan was perfect for me.  I needed the variety of having a different workout every day.  I needed the challenge of new and different equipment.  I needed the structure of a meal plan that is so laid out that it took out a lot of the guesswork I normally have to do.

Even though I was afraid of this program, I knew that the results would be incredible if I only just stuck with it.  So that’s what I did!  It definitely wasn’t easy–during the 13 weeks I completed this program, I had 6 family birthdays, multiple holidays, a ton of family get-togethers, several church events, and countless times that I ate out with my family.  It would have been so easy to have some sweet tea, or to order something I knew wasn’t on my plan, or to allow myself a treat 6 weeks in.  But I was committed to doing the program full out–exactly as it was written.  And I did it!

This program wasn’t really about weight loss for me, although I needed that and I feel awesome.  It was really about finding my confidence again, finding my discipline again, and proving to myself that I could do hard things.  That I am capable of amazing results.  That I could prove myself wrong and show just how strong I really am.  And that is exactly what happened!

I have really been working hard at sticking to this way of living since finishing the program.  It means a lot to me to have completed it successfully, but I am determined to not have that healthy way of life be something that I did for three months in 2018–this is who I want to be, and I’m working every day at making good choices and figuring out how to make this my lifestyle without being 100% rigid on my eating all the time.  I haven’t eaten perfectly since finishing the program, but I have been eating mindfully and sticking to my workouts.  There have been days where I have eaten way too much white bread or sugar, and the next day I’ve really focused on my nutrition instead of letting it all go by the wayside.  I want to not just maintain the results I’ve gotten, but get even more results–I want to keep getting fitter and stronger and more confident!  Honestly, I know that if I can do this program full out for 13 weeks, I can do pretty much anything.

I’m 11 days into my second round of this program–join me!  Comment below or email me to chat about snagging a spot in my next group and getting some awesome results of your own.  If I can do it, why not you?
