Cruisin the Caribbean

If you asked me a year ago if I ever thought I would be on a Caribbean Cruise in 2011, I would have said NO WAY…but WOW has life changed!

I want YOU to know that ANYTHING is possible when you set your Mind to it!!  Hardwork, Determination and FOCUS were definitely my Power Words for 2010….I was laid off from my full time job of over 13 yrs at the end of 2009 and instead of falling into a deep depression, I DECIDED this was my Opportunity to work my Business w/ full FOCUS!!  You would be surprised how far Goal Setting and Self Help Books will go….A Long Way!!  I had a Plan B and I’m so thankful I did…because this is where it led me

I earned a trip for 2 on a 7 Day Caribbean Cruise on the Oasis of the Seas!!  Oh yea baby! My hubby couldn’t go because of MMA Training season so I took one of my best friends, Shukria Stewart (APD from Utah).  Over 300 Beachbody Coaches were on the boat including 2 of my Coaches: Lisa Koehler and Kristia Hord!  I was MORE EXCITED for them to have Earned this trip than I honestly was for myself!!  On top of that we met up w/ my Success Partners: Blasi Jacobi, Kristi Fukumoto and my Upline ROCKSTAR Coach – Christine Dwyer & Platinum Presenters Team!!! Not to mention Corporate and staff made the trip as well…..

If you’re thinking, ohhhh it was a Business trip….think AGAIN!! In this Business we don’t know the difference between Work and Play!! And that’s the BEST way to describe my life!! I’m working w/ Positive, Driven People who Love Life and together we are having a BLAST!!!

What did we do? The 3 ports were: Bahamas, St. Thomas & St. Maarten!  It was NON STOP Fun: Turbo Kick w/ Chalene Johnsons, Jet Skiing, Dancing everynight!, Private Cocktail Parties, Dressing up for Dinner was fun everyday, Massages, Facials, Shopping it never ended….

What I’ll never forget is the relationships we built together all while setting up our futures…Thank You Beachbody!!

P90X / Insanity Hybrid…It begins

I am Super EXCITED to be going on a Caribbean Cruise in March 2011 through Beachbody…and this is definitely all the MOTIVATION I need to take my Fitness Program to the next level!!  Last January 2010 I did P90X along with taking Shakeology regularly and lost 11lbs initially in the 90 days!  I felt GREAT but was ready to change my program up, cause I’m going to be HONEST….P90X is rough!!

So here I am ONE YEAR later, I have kept off the weight…now I’m looking to take off the LAST 7 lbs and ultimately increase my lean muscle & Get RIPPED!!  So I am going to be doing a HYBRID of P90X & Insanity!!

I know from the experience from the first time….anytime I change my diet and start to eat clean, my IBS freaks out causing bloating!!  Ugh!  It will take 1-2 weeks to get it all back in balance…here is a clip of my workout of P90X on Day 2

To hold myself ACCOUNTABLE I am going to blog my journey along the way, including my pics, videos, weight measurements, food log and more!  I know I have a GREAT Workout Program that WORKS!!! Now its just a matter of staying organized, making time & just DOING IT!!

So here I go!!  When you take the GUESSWORK out of the equation, I’m telling you —It is a whole lot EASIER!!!  And that’s EXACTLY what P90x & Insanity do for me, I don’t have to THINK about or ask myself:

  • Is this going to work?
  • Will I see results?
  • What workout should I do today?
  • What should I eat?

10 Goals for 2011!

If you want to Achieve BIG GOALS in Life, the Best Place to Start is by writing them down….then sharing them!!!  My Business Mentor, Chalene Johnson, has taught me how to take what seems like DREAMS and turn them into GOALS you can achieve by simply writing them down!  Sound too easy? Well it is!! It’s also easy NOT to do….only 3% of People Actually Write Down their Yearly Goals…I invite you to take 5 minutes and write down the BIGGEST DREAMS you would LOVE to Achieve in 2011, not what you are going to achieve but WHAT would be AMAZING if you did!!! Stretch yourself!!

Write them down in any order 1-10.  Then Post them where you can see them everyday….lastly, share it with the people that are most important to you to hold you ACCOUNTABLE…just as I am publicly sharing mine.
