Transformation Tuesday – 21 Day Ultimate Reset

}} 4.25 {{

Nope, it’s not a date. It doesn’t need a dollar sign. And it’s not a score.

It represents what I LOST in toxic/gunk-filled inches, during my 21 day experience known as the Ultimate Reset!

And 4.25 might not seem like a lot but, I will tell you something, ridding your body of that much toxicity really does something to ya! It’s hard to put into words but I just feel so fresh, so cleaned out and light.

It literally feels like someone hit the Reset button and eliminated years and years of bad habits, chemicals (I wasn’t always as food-wise as I might be now!), and tons of other stuff that was bogging me down!

If this doesn’t lend credence to the notion it’s all about what you do/don’t eat, I don’t know what will. Other than yoga 3 times a week, I didn’t work out the whole 3 weeks, so these results are ALL nutrition-based!

Now, I just wish there was a way to measure what it did for me MENTALLY, because wow, did that ever help!

I feel lean and clean – if you wanna feel that way too, let’s chat!

Transformation Tuesday – My Dog Roxy

This Transformation Tuesday is a wee bit different than others but it is one of the nearest and dearest to my heart – my dog Roxy!

When she arrived at the shelter from Arkansas with her Mom (Mom was BARELY not a puppy – super young), this is what she looked like…. her ribs and tailbone were super visible to the eye, and evident to the touch. Despite being a black lab, she had basically no fur – just little spots here and there.

When my friends fostered her a few months after her arrival, she was much healthier but still needed to put on some pounds, and her fur was much better, but still a work in progress. You could still feel her tailbone, but much better.

When we first met her, we fell in love with her. We adopted her soon after, and we have worked so hard to give her a stable, loving, safe home with regular feedings and bathroom breaks, tons of toys to play with, as many cuddles and snuggles as she would like, and baths to keep her clean.

Her eyes are now so bright. Her coat is thick and shiny, and you can only barely feel her tailbone. The vet said she’s at a perfect weight, and is a healthy, happy young lady (10 months on the 25th), and we couldn’t be happier or love her more.

She’s changed so much, despite her rough start to life, she has so much love and vibrancy to her. She loves people, loves kids, loves other dogs, loves to play… she is so full of life and happy in her furever home.

I am sharing this because I know there are still tons of animals that need furever homes, and I would caution people not to judge a book by it’s cover, or a dog by it’s appearance – she looks so rough in her before pic, which is why it’s even more important that she found a furever home with owners who can give her everything she needs and deserves. The other animals deserve the same! I don’t know if anyone passed her by based on her appearance, but if they did, their loss is for sure the gain of my husband and I, and I could NOT be more grateful for that.

She is such a love bug, she can’t speak but she shows her gratitude and her appreciation every single day. She’s one of the best things thats ever happened to my husband and I, and we honestly could not love her more.

So here is to you, sweet Roxy, for your amazing transformation and for all the people who had a hand in helping you get to a healthy, happy existence.

Go forth and prosper ❤

Transformation Tuesday – Country Heat Round 1

After 2 back to back rounds of Hammer & Chisel, I needed a break, and I knew it! So I looked to the newly released Country Heat!

Yesterday, my Challenge Group kicked off a round of Country Heat. For me, it is the second round.. I completed round one towards the end of the summer. I LOVED this program – I was honestly surprised because while some of it is fun, most country music doesn’t do it for me (though as I stated, there ARE exceptions), and I wasn’t really sure if I would hive with honky tonk dancin’, you know?

But in the true nature of being an adventurous spirit who will try anything once, plus the incredible BUZZ surrounding this program at Coach Summit, I decided that yes, I would do at least one round. To be able to say I did. To be able to speak from experience when people ask me about it. I believe in being 100% authentic, and I only ever speak to my experiences with products and programs and the likes.

So I went in skeptical, I will admit, but I came out completely sold, and ready for another round! Autumn and I had a few tiffs during our 21 Day Fix/Hammer & Chisel Days (girl is effective, but she is also NONSTOP haha), and this program showed me a different side of her, one I enjoyed – she seemed more into having fun here, whereas with 21 Day Fix and Hammer & Chisel she was ALL business.

I had a rough summer, so much of my lean progress from my rounds of Hammer & Chisel had a little bit more padding, and after Country Heat not only did my core feel much stronger, but I noticed more definition and abs even made a cameo!

But more importantly (in my personal opinion) than abs and definition are how I felt – confident, challenged but capable (a few of the moves required a little practice for me to master, because while I love dancing, its typically freestyle dancing to jam band music, not choreographed stuff – but all of the moves are masterable!), genuinely happy I gave the program a try, and firmly on the side of “fitness CAN be fun” – you just have to find what you enjoy!

I don’t weigh myself, but I lost some inches around my torso and my thighs. I didn’t do it for the loss, but it was a nice bonus, really. Who doesn’t want to feel lean and strong and have fun getting there?!

I am excited for Round 2 – we just started yesterday. If you would like to join us, it’s not too late – we can instantly stream your program On Demand so you can join us!
