Do you ever wonder… HOW some people LOVE their workouts??

Okay, you know what I’m talking about, right? You power through your workouts, but you dread it. Half the time you’re thinking of reasons to skip it. It’s a chore. So how come some people you see or know seem to LOVE working out? They’re crazy, right?

Well, maybe.

But that’s beside the point.

There’s a secret to loving your workout. Do you want to know it? It’s all about your MINDSET. Yep. That’s it. Of course, finding a workout that is fun to you is important, too. That’s the best workout! But first and foremost you must re-teach your brain (and body) that working out is your drug. It’s what will make you feel amazing. Remind yourself of those endorphins you feel after a good workout. Think about the results you’ve seen…or that you know you WILL see if you stick to your workouts (and healthy eating). Visualize having fun, and visualize the results you want to see (or feel!). You can absolutely do this!

Here are some tips to re-train your brain:

  • Start by smiling. Smile before your workout. It’ll make your brain think you’re happy.
  • Now, think about the reasons you’re getting fit. Is it for your health? For your family? To set a good example for your kids? To fit into your old jeans? Repeat your reasons out loud to yourself 3 times each. Write those reasons down and post them everywhere!
  • Good! Now here’s the hard part. Any and every time you think of skipping your workout, or you find yourself dreading your workout, remind yourself — “This is NOT punishment”. Your workouts should never be about punishing yourself. They’re about giving yourself what you deserve.  You deserve that time out of your day. You deserve the stress relief.  You deserve to have fun, feel great, and have a better day. And the RIGHT workout will do all that for you…if you let it. Keep reminding yourself. In fact, change your screensaver on your computer to something that reminds you of this. Repeat it 5 times every morning and before your workouts.

Before too long, your brain will realize your workouts are a GOOD thing. Something that’s FOR you. Not just something you have to do.

I mentioned that the right workout is key. This is very true. The best workout is one that you enjoy. For a while, I ran. I started running because my friends did, and I knew it was a good calorie burner. And for a while, it was enjoyable for me, I looked forward to it. (after the growing pains of the first month or so!). But at some point I started trying other workouts and found myself really, REALLY enjoying those. Even looking forward to them for real. And I was dreading running. I listened to my body and realize that this was because the other workouts were just more fun. Embrace what’s fun. If running is fun for you, then GO FOR IT! If it’s not, then don’t force yourself. But don’t give up, either. Instead, try other workouts. Check out a yoga or Zumba class. Try Insanity, Turbo Fire, P90X or Chalean Extreme. Personally, I found the intensity of Insanity way more engaging than most workouts. I felt like a BEAST after every workout; like I’d climbed Mount Everest. And I keep going back to Turbo Fire because there’s a huge variety in the choreography from workout to workout AND the music is actually GOOD. Imagine that!

So you see, you have control over whether or not you’ll love your workouts. Now, I’m not going to sit here and tell you that every day is like nirvana. Of course, we alllll have days we just don’t feel like working out. But. Once you’ve found that soulmate workout, you’ll have less of those days. Oh. And on those days, do yourself a favor, just START your workout. Give it 5 minutes. I almost can guarantee you that after 5 minutes you’ll be into it. It’s worth a shot, right?

So. Tell us, why do you want to love your workouts? Why do you want to be healthy?

Flat Belly Challenge with yours truly!

So here’s my story, in a nutshell…and why I’m doing a challenge… {{Please note, I run a challenge like this EVERY month, so even if this post looks old, it’s still relevant!}}

I haven’t had kids (by choice!) But…as I got a little older, I was slowly gaining pounds. (why can’t we all stay 25?!) To say the least, I wasn’t crazy about gaining 2 pants sizes. Hey I know that’s not a lot, but it was enough to notice. I admitted early that I needed to do something. When I committed to making a change I went all in & haven’t looked back. FItness is part of my daily life now and I am so passionate about it that I always look for ways to pay it forward.

So now I’m looking for some ladies to make THEIR change WITH me. If you have been thinking about it, wanting and wishing you could really change, now’s the time to step up! I’ll be working closely with this group, daily. We’ll be serious about accountability & fitness and I’ll share TONS of tips & ideas, meal planning & motivation.

I am only taking 5 ladies so let me know NOW! I lost 2 sizes & am FITTER than I was when I was 25 and I know I can guide you to do the same. Your only role right now — COMMIT. Once you commit, I’ll help you do the rest!

So. Are you in? Comment below — or email me (amyromerova@outlook.com) if you want to know more about the details…!!! I can’t wait,  y’all!

Chalean Extreme Results and Review – Day 90


Well, it’s official, I’ve finished a full round of Chalean Extreme, which is 90 days. I didn’t miss any workouts. Though I really enjoy doing a variety of workouts, during this 90 days I tried really hard to just focus on Chalean Extreme, drinking Shakeology every day, and eating well. I just wanted to know exactly what the results would be like without the influence of other workouts.

So here’s my review of Chalean Extreme and also my Before and After photos.

I REALLY enjoyed the program. I actually looked forward to it every day. Of course Chalene Johnson is my FAVORITE trainer ever, so that helped. Her personality and positivity is contagious. But here are some other things I loved about the program: First, the workouts weren’t long. They don’t need to be. When you’re lifting heavy weights and using perfect form, you don’t need to spend an hour or more doing it. These were perfect for me, time flew by. Most of the weight days were around 35 minutes long. Love it! Second, I loved that though the program is centered about weight training (and lifting heavy!), there’s still two days a week where you do cardio. BUT It’s not your mama’s cardio! It follows the more effective cardio type of workouts – HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and Interval Training. The cardio days were a little longer, more like a 40-45 minute workout followed by either abs or a version of yoga (additional 15-20 minutes). Lastly, the thing I probably liked the MOST was being able to see results so quickly. And they changed each 30 days as the program changed. The first month was the ‘burn’ month. And I could tell I was starting to burn more fat. The second month is the ‘push’ month. And with that, my muscles started really forming and being visible. And finally, the ‘lean’ month, I really leaned out. My muscles became longer, and well, leaner. I’ll put all the pictures below.

So you can see, obviously that this program’s a winner. And I’ve always known that weight training was where people (especially ladies) miss out. That’s where leanness and toned bodies come from. Not to mention it’s empowering! But this program was better than any weight training I ever did in the gym. Seriously. Think you want to try it? You can order it through my webstore!! And when you do that, you get some bonuses that you wouldn’t when you order from the infomercial. Aaaand you also get me as your coach. Cool, huh? 🙂 You can order it by going to my site: www.turboromero.com 

I’ll be doing the 90 days again. This time I’m mixing it with Brazil Butt Lift as a hybrid. Mainly because I really do love mixing stuff up. And now that I’ve seen the unadulterated results, I don’t feel like I have to keep it separate this time. I’m excited to share the photos with you, and I’ll post more as I complete more!

So, onto the before and after photos from my ChaLEAN Extreme experience.

Okay, here’s a BEFORE, before pic. As in, a couple of years ago. This was before I started running and doing Physique 57. SO yes, I had lost some of the weight before starting Chalean Extreme. BUT I also have a pic below showing the actual starting point before Chalean just to be very clear. 🙂

Image

This was at my heaviest. No watching food, no exercise at all. 143lbs, 5’7″, size 6, no muscle at all, really.

Image

This was after about a year of watching my food choices and running and doing Physique 57. I was 132lbs in this pic and feeling much better! In a size 4

Image

Day 30. Starting to see new definition, particularly in my abs! YAY! Still around 132lbs, but noticeable changes, so I was happy.

Image

Day 60. Insane new muscles! Since this was the PUSH month, I was lifting much heavier and less reps, to build up the muscles. And it was for sure working! Up to 135lbs here (due to the new muscle mass!)

Image

Day 90. Down to 130lbs on the dot. Lean month was fabulous! The muscles I’d built up are now longer and leaner and I feel svelte, almost! In a size 2!

So there you have it – my Chalean Extreme before and after photos! I’m always happy to answer more questions if I didn’t cover something here, or you have other questions, please lay them on me!
