What Do I Do If….

I've asked my Facebook friends to suggest what they want me to write about.  Caitlin wants to know what I do when in social situations such dining out, drinking socially and even home partys.  This is a big opportunity for anyone to f*ck up but if you are mentally committed to your goals it isn't…

Far From Perfect; Closer to Puke

I feel as though my recent posts have been too fluffy and wanted to remind you that I'm far from perfect.  Tonight's class was super tough and I started to feel lightheaded.  It could have been lack of protein today or just the up and down movement but either way I felt discouraged. Here are…

What Is My Workout?

I realized recently that i haven't been very informative about what my workout regiment is and let you know!  I've been talking a lot about Zone 360 in but what is it!?  The best description is like a boot camp.  Zone 360 has been designed to target every muscle in your body through interval training, strength training,…

Benefits

I'm into my second week of Zone 360 and my diet.  I have felt so many benefits already and wanted to share if you're looking for some motivation. Clarity - Before I started this there was so much "noise" from myself and outside people.  In an unconscious way I seemed to cling to negativity because…

Food!!

I love cooking especially during the holidays.  In fact, for Christmas Eve I cooked everything from Ina Garten's recipes.  Ina, better known as the Barefoot Contessa, cooks mostly French for entertaining which means butter, cream and oil.  These were my 3 food groups and I was a huge fan of carbs! Taking on this change…

Do I Have the Strength To Go On?

First let me update you on my progress.  Yesterday was day 1 of week 2 and made a huge accomplishment.  I got through the entire class without stopping.  If you recall from my first day, I had to stop for about 10 minutes to catch my breath.  I also have dropped 9 pounds!  Not too…

What’s Your Motivation?

Motivation is a huge factor in starting to change your life.  I've been motivated before to go to the gym and get on the elliptical but lost motivation quickly because my brain wasn't set with a goal.  I am mentally prepared to get healthy through diet and exercise.  I've shared my moments of when I…

Week 1 DONE!

Yesterday was a very hard day for me mentally and physically at boot camp in Ocean NJ. I felt defeated by the pain in my body, the exhaustion and the food. I received a lot of feedback, tips, and quotes. I appreciate it all! Someone told me that the diet I am following is like…

Day 3: Giving Up

Last night was day 3 of Zone 360 and it was so hard.  If you recall, I texted Melissa to find out what to expect in class because my legs were killing me.  The "surprise" definitely was NOT ice cream sundaes but an evening of legs.  I put forth 100% and got through the brutal work out which…

Day 2: Yes!

I started my second Zone 360 class on Monday and was very nervous about what to expect.  I was sitting in my car psyching myself out when I read my friend's messages of encouragement on Facebook.  I am so lucky to have people to motivate me even though this has been a goal for myself.…
