More than a dozen years ago, a blood test indicated that my cholesterol level was up to 251 - anything above 200 is considered undesirable but above 240 is considered high and dangerous! - My doctor scheduled me for a repeat test in 30 days, but told me I was likely going to be put on cholesterol meds - the same one my grandparents and my dad were taking. And at only 32, the thought of being put on a med to control my cholesterol “forever” kind of freaked me out! - While I was able to lower my numbers a bit before that 2nd test with a few diet changes, I wasn’t able to sustain it and by the time a 3rd test came around, I was back up to that 250 range. The next day and every day for the following 9+ years, I was on meds. And sadly after a little while, I kind of got used to it. - A funny thing happened though when I started being consistent with my home workout programs and with drinking my new favorite superfood shake everyday. Yeah I lost weight and gained a shit ton of energy, but my cholesterol numbers started to normalize! - To my surprise, my doctor suggested a 3 month trial being off meds…I was scared shitless! The meds were keeping my cholesterol levels out of that danger zone…I need them, right? - Despite my fear, the hope of being off meds was too strong so I gave it a shot. - Three months later, still drinking my nutritious shake and working out daily it was time for the big test. - A day or 2 later I received a call from my doctor. She asked me if I still had my cholesterol meds… - FUCK!!! Yeah I do. - Well, you can flush them down the toilet because your numbers are now better than they were while you were on meds, in fact they are better than good! Keep doing what you’re doing though…its definitely working! - Yes, Doc, I will! ✌🏼❤️👣 ______________________________ ______________________________ #dadoftwins #dadofboys #twinboys #healthylifestyle #proteinshakes #loseweight #superfoods #smoothie #fitmom #beardgamestrong #fitat40 #steakbomb #healthyrecipes #highcholesterol
I’m tuning 40 in one month exactly. 😳 Yes, I’m a little shook. But there is one thing I know for sure. I want to go into this next decade more fit and with more energy then I ever had in my 20’s and 30’s. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My BF% is right at about 10.5% right now. I’d like to get down to between 8% - 9% by my birthday. Which would be my leanest ever. I’m also going to the beach that week which is always good motivation. 🏝 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Can I do it? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m determined. I’ll be doing a cut for the next 30 days. For me that’s 1840 cals per day. (12 x Bodyweight.) The key is to maintain muscle which is why I’ll be keeping protein high and not going too low on calories. I hope to lose 4 lbs of fat. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wish me luck. Here’s to achieving goals!!!!

#wednesdaywisdom ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Not only did this quote make me smile, it made me realise how far I've come since my 40th Birthday. Being 40 was a turning point for me, I retrained to do my dream job and now run my own business. As well as running two marathons.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This post is not to brag but to say, don't think that anything you want to achieve is out of your reach. Age is just a number and your dreams and goals are still out there for the taking.⠀ Whatever it is - Write it down, make a plan and go for it!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If your goal is to get fitter, healthier and feel better about yourself though your not quite sure where to start, drop me a DM as I would love the opportunity to guide and support you in achieving your dream. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fitat40 #fitterat40 #ageisjustanumber #dontbeabanana #dream #belive #achieve #focusonyourself #fitter #stronger #healther #quoteoftheday personal trainer #onlinepersonaltrainer #fitnessinstructor #rebelfitnessclub #norwich
Happy girl 😀 60kg back squat for two, which was my one rep max and 30 double unders in a row, practice really does pay off, just keep working at those weaknesses #wedontquit #crossfit #crossfitmum #fitat40 #wod #wednesday #crossfitcorinthian #newhaven #rowing #burpees #doubleunders #backsquat #girlswholift #mumswholift #dowhatyoulove #fitmum #stronger
Please hear my heart ❤️⠀ ⠀ I do NOT offer a diet! ⠀ ⠀ I offer an opportunity to get off the yo-yo diet merry go round. You know the one 90% of us are on where we do whatever fad diet is cool at the time and then once that 30 or 60 days is up, you gain all the weight back! ⠀ ⠀ I offer an opportunity to stop feeling frustrated that you aren’t seeing results after killing yourself with workouts 5 days a week! ⠀ ⠀ I offer moms time with their kids back because they don’t have to meal prep for 6 hours on a Sunday or track everything in my fitness pal! ⠀ ⠀ I offer women a chance to finally see results and feel better about themselves than they have in years! ⠀ ⠀ So NO I don’t offer a diet, I offer hope! And if you don’t have any for yourself, then you can borrow mine until you do. Because when I say this is life changing... I mean it! ❤️⠀ ⠀ #optimalhealth #weightloss #weightlossquotes #fitmoms #fitmom #fitmama #entrepreneur #fitness #fitat40 #fitafterbaby #strongmom #healthymom #healthymommy #fitmomsinpire #fitmomsrock #healthy #lifestyle #habit #beautiful #fitmomlife #gettingfitagain #getfitagain #getfitstayfit #myfitlife #getfitforlife
❌ 9 cycle classes per week ➕2 step aerobics classes per week ➕ a hand-full of other classes ➕ F45/ functional training ➕ personal workouts = crazy tight hips OUCH. I have been dedicating time to practice Yin Yoga. These pictures show my IMPROVED mobility through practicing this type of yoga. I have a long way to go but It feels great to have an improved range of motion. * * * * * * #functionaltraining #fitnessjourney #yinyoga #wellness #wellnesswednesday #fitat40 #nodirtyjokes #stretch #mobility

Struggle bus 🚌 The comfort of working out in your own home - using a hot pink LYFT headband because it was closest. Until you share the pic on social media. 😂🤷‍♀️That picture was only meant to be shared with my Challenge Group but wth... 😏😣 I almost talked myself out of my workout this morning 3 times before I pushed play. 🙉🙉🙉 ❌Because it was cardio (not my favorite) ❌It was only 35 minutes (I could do it after work -- yeah right, 4 kids, volleyball game, dinner, HW --first thing to get dropped is the workout) ❌I was so tired (Like half sleeping for 30 more minutes will be refreshing) So, I did it and it felt great. 🤩🤩 🔮It's HARD to stick to committing to workouts everyday - especially when the newness of it wears off. That could be day 3, day 8 or day 12 for some people. 🔮It's HARD to keep going when you feel like you don't see any changes, you don't want to give up beer, so what's the point? ➡️➡️The point is, small changes add up, you don't have to make them all at once! 🔮It's HARD to eat right the other 23 hours of the day. #sohard 🔮But it's also hard to not feel comfortable in your own clothes. #chooseyourhard 🚌 I struggled with my nutrition the last 6 weeks of summer. Little by little, the results of my hard work from earlier this year were vanishing. Struggle bus was in effect.🚌🚌 So I refocused - ✅started a new program and intentionally focused on a specific nutrition plan. My scale started going right back down in days. 😮 Because I wasn't starting from square 1 anymore. No matter where you are in your journey, it's YOUR journey. 🏞️🎢📈 Set a goal. 🌟 It's hard in the beginning - all changes are.✨ But it gets easier. 🤫😁 #youcandohardthings #80dayobsession #timednutrition #beabadass . . . #fitat40 #athomeworkout #liift4 #letsgo #momof4 #volleyball #softballlife #bettertogether #reader #accountabilityworks #bestrong #runnersofinstagram #momofgirls #loveyourself #believe #doitanyway #teachyourchildrenwell #mentaltoughness
#doublerunday An early 3 mile mut run in the dark this morning. Kept it on road this morning so more canicross training 🐶. And then 7 miles this evening with @shane_morel who always seems to find the hills!! Taking my daily total to a nice round 10 miles. Gotta love a double run day. It seems to make getting the miles in a little bit easier. #earlymorningrun #eveningrun #canicross #fittertogether

Jour 3 : Quelques courbatures commencent à se faire sentir après le WOD3, et ça fait du bien!!! Aujourd'hui difficulté avec le plan alimentaire toujours à cause de mes horaires décalés. J'arrive enfin à faire mon 1er vrai repas de la journée à 19h mais, c'est le repas qui était prévu pour ce midi: 🤔😥 Crevettes sautées, poireaux, pâtes complètes! Heureusement un régal dans l'assiette! Je vais faire la collation qui était prévue cet après-midi ce soir mais malgré le petit-déj normal, le snacking ce midi healthy même si pas réglementaire, je n'arriverai pas à mon compte calorique!!! J'espère que je vais réussir à gérer un peu mieux ça demain pour pas,être trop en hypocalorie!!! #fitaddict #hiitaddict #instafit #fitgirl #fitnessaddict #fitness #mangerbouger #mangersain #healthyfood #biendansmoncorps #biendansmonassiette #gourmandethealthy #feminineetmusclée #nopainnogain #onlacherien #fitmom #fitforty #fitat40 #40ansetsportive #fitover40 #laseche #lasechesaison7

I’m starting to see some major improvements in my arms! I attribute lots of it to not just lifting weights, but also full body and resistance exercises (burpees, stairclimbers, push-ups, planks). #buffwomen #womenwholift #stepupyourgame #fitat40 #fitmomsofig #fitinindy #fitnessmotivation

Looking back at photos during that time we had definitely didn’t have as much fun as we did in Jamaica.... life is so much better then your in shape! We had the energy do make some incredible memories! Thank you to @advocare for wonderful products and the opportunity to make extra money to help pay for life’s adventures ( or bills) 🤗
If I could give my daughter 3 things, it would be: . . 🌸 the CONFIDENCE to always know her self worth . . 🌼 the STRENGTH to chase her dreams . . 🌺 the ABILITY to know how truly, deeply loved she is

Some days I need all the caffeine. This week seems long already, and it’s only Wednesday. Who’s with me?? • Super busy conference call day at my full-time gig, but then I am sports-practice-free this evening. 🙌🏼 • My absolute favorite time of day is the morning, though. Since I get up when my husband goes to work around 4:30am, I have THREE GLORIOUS HOURS to myself — to work on myself — before I have to adult. I workout, drink coffee, learn, do personal development and work on my side business while the sun comes up. It gets my mind right. • What is your favorite time of day? What’s your routine? 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
Working on strict pull-ups. Was able to do 4 in a row for a total of 30 reps. Felt stronger but still so difficult! - #pullups #fitat40 #hardwork #weightlifting #obpstrong #woodbridge #womenwholift #hatdwork #fitfam
Back/Core done and 125 workouts in!!! #progressnotperfection #lifestylechange New curves where I SHOULD have them (aka I have a bum now😍) Tummy is getting flatter and the worry of extra skin is becoming less a concern as it seems to be tightening up well!! Still no change in weight (still 200) but up to 21.5” gone in total. Going to do two weeks of #DripDry and follow a strict diet to see how much I can lean out. Building muscle don’t seem to be hard for me as a female so now I want to test my body with a cutting phase 🤞🏻🤞🏻 I can stick with it!!! #justbestrong #FitAt40 #GirlsWhoLift #HardMagnum #StartingToLoveMyBody #Weights

There are always challenges that need to be overcome before you can succeed. Instead of thinking negatively and giving up on your dreams, why not look for ways that you can overcome these obstacles and make them part of your success story. If getting fit and healthy is one of those challenges, please allow me to help you.

Nowadays “meet me at the bar” has a whole new meaning for me 😜 Of course I still partake in adult beverages but I have learned that a #balancedlife is key. I am well aware that at 41 years old my health is my greatest blessing & I do not take it for granted. Staying on the right track can be difficult, especially when my schedule is hectic. So I have come to rely on @lovesuja non-GMO & organic cold-pressed juices, drinking vinegars & kombuchas to keep me energized and my digestive system on point. I promise you will love all of the incredible flavors! 🍉🥒🍍🍋🍓🥗 #WellnessWednesday #LiveWell

5mile leg loosener and #22pushupchallenge legs still stiff as pokers as Paras10, got a PT session with @pawelbal tomorrow who will no doubt pull me inside out. Nice run on the trails to clear my head and get the happy hormones flowing. #ptsd can affect anyone, you don’t have to be a combat vet or in the emergency services, don’t be embarrassed if you don’t feel right after a traumatic experience, the feelings are Normal responses to what you have experienced. There are lots of support and help out there, you are not alone, you will always find someone watching your 6, even if you don’t know it. A sufferer knows the signs, no one gets left behind.

Some mid day work. Just getting loose. Getting ready to hit some PR's and 5 rep maxes tomorrow afternoon in Minneapolis. Can't wait to mix it up with @tomnikkola @leswr3 @_chris_proctor and a bunch of other good dudes! Gonna be epic! #vigor #maxedout #minneapolis #advance10 .0
Headed to Virginia to help spread the love and vision that I have for Arbonne and for people. Then headed over to Washington DC to speak to 1500 people about doing their own push-ups, setbacks, perseverance, and chasing your dreams. How did I ever get to this place in my life. . . ? Because I dared. Will you dare with me? It really is that simple. It’s not about Arbonne, it’s about whatever you desire to do. The first and last step is daring to do it. Shout out to @bubbaburcham for introducing me to my new favorite T-shirt’s competeeveryday.
This totally made my day!! I've been having a hard time recently with so many things going on in my life, was depressed and feeling useless and like giving up. Then I woke up to this message on my Facebook page from my hero and mentor! Knowing that he took the time to do this means the world to me, just one reason why I admire this man and love his workout program!! Cant wait to see where this journey will take me!! Than you @sagithebeast
