Turbo Fire 5-day inferno Day 1

I am an all or nothing type of person, it has ruined me in the past when I’d start something and think…ah, I’ll RE-start on monday. When it comes to my nutrition I have had to really reprogram myself, BUT when it comes to challenges it truly helps me PUSH myself like never before.

Today I started the TurboFire 5-day Inferno a 5 day meal plan and workout plan that promises you will lose 10lbs or 10″ in 5 days, well I believe it! I had the honor of being selected and participate in this program’s test group and I personally lost 5lbs and 10″ now I’m at it again, to see what this 5-day inferno can do to my post preggo body. I am now approaching 9 weeks since the birth of my son and I have about 25lbs to go to reach my pre-pregnancy weight.
Here is my starting picture….I’m not proud of this picture whatsoever!

well, here we go!

My journey to fitness part 2! Where do I start?

Its been 8 weeks tonight since I had my baby boy. I’ve been cleared by my doc and I’m ready to run! I’ve been upping my workouts and intensity slowly, but now I am ready! Now where do I start? As a fitness coach I am asked this question A LOT and being on this side of the journey (again) I know EXACTLY how it feels!
Where do I begin? How can I do this? CAN I do this? Is it possible?! questioning myself and double thinking my ability to meet my goals is normal, its human-BUT- its what you do from here that counts! I will not let it stop me! So back to the question- where do I start?!
To answer this I will reflect on the last time I started my journey, before becoming pregnant with Ezekiel I had logged in a 75lb loss and I started that journey horribly! I spent countless hours working out, was at the gym daily, was pushing myself more then ever before- but was getting zero results! Because my nutrition was what needed adjusting. Its easy to sweat, we all know how to workout- but we don’t know how to eat, or should I say- how to eat CLEAN! So I will be spending the next month focusing on clean eating and I have a goal of reducing my weight by 15lbs! yes! My goal is drop 15lbs in a month-impossible? we’ll see! Will you join me? I’d like to have you on this journey with me! I will be hosting an Eat Clean & Get Lean challenge- you want in? please post here & like my page on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/fatmomtofitmom
Be checking this blog & my facebook page for more details to come and for updates on my journey! I’d love to hear from you! please comment below!

Introducing the newest amendment to my “why?”

As I’ve posted before without a why- you have no drive, no purpose. It’s the gas that fuels us, inspires us, motivates us. Your why can shift, grow & change as you do, but you need one to get somewhere.
My why began on march 8th, 2008 with the birth of my daughter- Isabella. Her coming into the world threw me into an unexpected journey to health & fitness that has now become my full-time career. Never would have I imagined being blessed enough to work from home- but here I am. And now I am pleased to introduce to you the newest amendment to MY why: Ezekiel: born on Saturday, august 27th at 12:10am. 8lbs 2oz & 19.5″ of pure baby boy! I’m blessed beyond belief & excited for how my life is changing!
Please continue to come check out my fitness blog as I continue my journey of reaching my goals and helping others reach their’s!
