Here is the 4-1-1 on the Morning Meltdown 100!

Your morning has the power to set the tone for your entire day! If you have been following me for a while, you know that positive mindset and always believing that something amazing will happen is my mantra!!!  
Plus, or many people, it’s also a chance to get in a little “me time.”  Let's face it - with this busy lifestyle and high demands of family, work, lifestyle, is difficult to find time to have that quality alone time!
So what better way to start your day strong AND do something good for yourself than with a workout — one that leaves you feeling accomplished, energized, and ready to take on whatever life throws at you?

SO, What Is Morning Meltdown 100?

Morning Meltdown 100 is the newest workout program that is sure to be a HUGE hit.  The picture above shows our smiling faces after we just tested this program out LIVE with the trainer! And, let me tell you, these smiles are genuine and earned!!!
Every morning, the star trainer, Jericho, will lead you through a 20- to 30-minute workout that can help you rev up your metabolism, burn fat all day, and build your best body ever — all working toward helping you live your BEST LIFE.
There are 100 unique workouts in total, and yep, each one is designed to help you transform your body.
But more importantly, these 100 workouts give you 100 opportunities to work on yourself  — and reap the rewards of working out in the morning.
“Waking up and sweating means starting your day with an endorphin rush, which instantly boosts your mood and sets a positive tone for the rest of your day,” Jericho explains. “You’ll feel happier, more accomplished, and less stressed, and you’ll have extra energy to tackle the rest of your day as it unfolds.”
Sounds good to me!

20 healthy ways to deal with STRESS

It may seem like there’s nothing you can do about stress. The bills won’t stop coming, there will never be more hours in the day, and your work and family responsibilities will always be demanding. But you have a lot more control than you might think. In fact, the simple realization that you’re in control of the outlook of your life is an awesome way of managing stress. Stress management is all about taking charge: of your lifestyle, thoughts, emotions, and the way you deal with problems. No matter how stressful your life seems, there are steps you can take to relieve the pressure and regain control. This is one thing that Darren & I strive to do -- no matter our circumstance - and we've been thru A LOT!!!! - from LIVING with cancer to teenage years...

If you’re living with high levels of stress, you’re putting your entire well-being at risk. Stress wreaks havoc on your emotional balance, as well as your physical health. It narrows your ability to think clearly, function effectively, and enjoy life. So, no matter what we are faced with, Darren & I remember to do a few things DAILY from this list:
20 Healthy Ways To Deal With Stress
1. Start waking up earlier.
2. Prepare for the morning the night before.
3. Say "no" more often.πŸ‘ŽπŸ»
4. Evaluate your priorities.

5. Fix or abandon toxic relationships.πŸ™ŒπŸ»
6. Manage your time well.πŸ—“
7. Focus on what you can control.
8. Find opportunities in life's challenges.
9. Read a book.πŸ“–
10. Talk to someone you trust.πŸ‘―
11. Write in a journal.✍🏻
12. Make time for exercise.πŸ‘Ÿ
13. Cook a healthy meal.🍏
14. Pursue a passion project.
15. Be kind to people around you.
16. Take breaks from social media.πŸ“±
17. Let go of the past.
18. Keep an agenda/planner.πŸ““
19. Check your agenda often.✔️
20. Smile!πŸ˜ƒ

Let's kick some πŸ’©....

#ThrowbackThursday goes to this guy!! Ummm.. 11 days after brain surgery... I think he’s looking pretty good!! Don’t ya think?? 
His attitude remains as positive as always!! We know we have quite the fight in front of us, but we’re not scared!! And like Darren said in our new podcast episode, that if he didn’t have these bad times he wouldn’t understand how to appreciate the good!! ❤️❤️❤️ 

As far as surgery goes, we are out of the woods! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ» And though we may still have a long road ahead of us, that’s never stopped us before! 

For those of you who know us, you know Darren and I are ready to take on any challenge head on [no pun intended]πŸ’πŸΌ‍♀️πŸ’― But this one has been a tough one... I spend every day trying to inspire people around me with my words and actions. Right now, I’m struggling with inspiration myself. In times of uncertainty, fear, exhaustion, and stress, it’s easy to fall back into old habits and unhealthy choices. This is real  and it’s not easy!

Nutrition is KEY for so many things - and I am learning so much about nutrition and cancer...  Darren & I are going to be tweaking our diet and getting ready to feed our bodies with the best tools to fight this diagnosis and to feel amazing during treatment.  I plan on sharing what I am learning and helping others to fuel their body in the best way starting April 1st.  Interested in joining us in this journey?  Message me TODAY for details and I can get you plugged in!

Let's talk FOOD πŸŽπŸ•πŸ³πŸ”πŸ₯—

Counting calories, tracking macros, portion control containers, low carb, no carb, carb cycling, timed nutrition, and allllllllll the fad diets in between…#beenthere πŸ™‹πŸ»‍♀️ . You too?
Ever given one, two, or maybe all of these a try? And if you have, maybe one of these strategies work for you. Maybe it was exactly what you needed for REAL, long-lasting results.
Or maybe not. If you are still looking for the easiest and extremely effective nutrition guide.....look no further.

WAIIIIT....hold up.  Stop the presses.  Hold the phone.  huh?

Is this just another fad diet?

Actually…it’s quite the opposite. 

Let’s get real for a minute.
What happens with diets when it’s all focused around restriction?
You often pass on experiences, celebrations, events, and things you truly enjoy. Or you say…hey, life is too short to miss out on these things and you indulge, enjoy but then you don’t get back “on track” with the plan. It's hard to get back on the wagon.
We’ve all been there, right ladies???
So let me ask you this…
What’s your goal?
Is your goal to create a healthy lifestyle, lose weight, and be confident and happy with your food choices?
If yes, then your goals are already in motion to start the lifestyle that will change your life forever.
The Ultimate Portion Fix takes out the guesswork and teaches you a system that can be used day after day. Over time, you will see what works for you and your body.
I honestly believe, it comes down to structure. If you thrive or succeed from structure or if you prefer to have a more “laid-back” approach to your nutrition.
For some, they need to have containers, a calculation, or a number goal to hit each day.
For others, removing structure and learning and applying easy-to-follow principles and healthy habits is exactly what they need to remove the stress they often feel with plans centered around calories, macros, or portion containers.
Is this plan magic? I hate to break it to you, but there is NO SUCH THING.
But, there is some magic that happens when a group of empowering #girlieboss #FitnessJunkies come together forming a community to support one another every step of the journey.
Team Fitness Junkies will bring you a community, or VIRTUAL GYM, where we are team up to bring you the best of the best when it comes to an online space for support and resources. We check in and post ideas every single day to keep you excited about this process.
That’s what it is…a process.
There’s no such thing as an overnight fix.
If you’re ready to explore more Ultimate Portion Fix and if the program and it’s long-term focused principles will best serve you, JOIN US. Message me TODAY!

Not your typical I*N*S*P*I*R*A*T*I*O*N post....

If you follow me on social media, you know that it's been a tough few weeks.  Darren, my husband, has been fighting and WINNING his brain cancer for several years. Unfortunately, we did get some not so great news recently and made the decision for a 3rd brain surgery this past Friday.  If you know us, you know we are ready to take on any challenge head on [no pun intended]πŸ’πŸΌ‍♀️πŸ’― But this one has been a tough one... I spend every day trying to inspire people around me with my words and actions. Right now, I’m struggling with inspiration myself. In times of uncertainty, fear, exhaustion, and stress, it’s easy to fall back into old habits and unhealthy choices. This is real ➰ and it’s not easy!
But thank God for my sister, mom and dad who are here with us❤️ .  They have been the biggest support and keeping my sanity in check. They’ve kept me accountable in following all of Darren’s advice: 
1) Laugh out loud every day✔️ 
2) Take walks, get outside✔️
3) And don’t believe the prognosis✔️
And I’m adding a 4th.. get control of my emotional eating😳! Starting that today!  And, if you are under stress or simply just READY to control your eating/nutrition for whatever reason - PLEASE message me on Facebook as I have a clean eating group going NOW and would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have you join me & hold each other accountable as we get our nutrition back in check!  Message me HERE.

Five years ago Darren said, “I live every day of my life without regret and I treat every day like it’s the best day of my life.”
That’s what we’re doing today, and that’s what we’re going to keep doing tomorrow and all the days ahead of us❤️πŸ™ŒπŸ»
