I’m back! (and a secret – getting your frustrations out…)

I’m baaaack!

I hope you’re excited. Because I am. I took an unplanned hiatus. I’m not sure why. Does it matter why? Well, suffice it to say, I’m sorry I left you!

Okay, now, I have a secret to share.

Here’s the thing. I’ve found myself under a lot of stress lately (maybe that’s subconsciously why I’ve been absent?) You all know the drill. Work stress, family stress, task stress, errand stress, good stress, bad stress, friend stress. (New Dr. Seuss?) Usually it doesn’t bother me too bad, but it’s been piling on me lately. I think the turning point was when I discovered my cholesterol was scary bad. Bad like, doctor says, yes, start an aspirin regimen bad. I got scared, I mean, I thought I was pretty healthy. What gives?

Turns out, long story short – even though I didn’t eat like crap, there was room for improvement. More veggies, more fruit, more beans, more oats, etc. I have some pretty scary genetics in this area, so I’m HOPING that these dietary changes will help.

Got sidetracked. Anyhow, my secret. I’ve found a lovely way to relieve tension and get those frustrations out. It’s no secret that working out helps to reduce stress. But, there’s one particular workout that seems to help more than others. (yoga is one, but in a different way) Well, I re-discovered kickboxing. Oh YES. Turbo Jam was my first fitness love back in the day. So I pulled that sucker out and have been feeling AMAZING ever since. I’d forgotten how much fun it was and how awesome I feel after those workouts. The time FLIES by! So I also tried my hand (fist) at some Les Mills Combat too. Those stressors are still around…but after a good, long, crazy session of hooks, jabs, and uppercuts (and serious kicks)…I feel SO much better. Oh. And bytheway…it’s not just mental therapy.  It also happens to be a kick-a$$ workout.

So that’s my secret for you today….

Tell me how YOU relieve tension and get your frustrations out!

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 ( if you want to know more about the details…!!! I can’t wait,  y’all!
