I’m going to make a real effort to keep my blog up to date. I want to post daily about my workouts, share more recipes, talk about my horrible sock tan lines I’ve already gotten from my daily walks with neighbors/ friends.
Over the last year, with becoming more involved with people online, in groups, on Instagram, etc., I’ve realized lots of us have things in our lives that are relatable. Many of us have things in common that without these social media outlets we’d never even know.
I’ve met some AMAZING women over this last year. There are three that I will name here today; Danny J of The Sweaty Betties, Crystal of Train Dirty Fitness, and Amber from Mother Pumper. These girls, among MANY others, have made such an impact on my life recently. I just feel very fortunate to have them.
Surround yourself with people who lift you up and amazing things will happen.
Since becoming a coach with Body FX Direct, I received the JNL Fusion workout DVDs and schedule and Figure 8 Fitness DVDs and schedule. I started JNL Fusion right away, today is Day 6 of Week 2. I’m LOVING these workout! Most are 30 minutes or less, and they “kick your trash”! I pass the sweat test EVERY time.
So, today’s plan is as follows:
*Fusion Lower Body (I missed it yesterday, this is makeup)
*10 Minute Total Body Transformer
*Kiss My Abs Express.
These three workouts will be approximately 45 minutes total.
Afterwards I hope to spend a majority of my day (other than doing the loads of laundry piled up) outside by the pool. Not so much laying out, but doing a little daily pool maintenance, watering some plants, and just sitting with my feet in the water.
I will be designing an aquatic workout for the summer. I was hoping to have it ready by May, but it’s taking a tad longer than expected. There’s just been so much going on recently. Once I have it finished I will be sharing it on this blog, for FREE! 🙂
I hope you have a fabulous Saturday. Don’t forget, if you any questions about Body FX or anything for that matter, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, then you know that I’ve recently signed up with a company called Body FX to promote and sell their new line of nutritional supplements.
Why have I chosen this company?
Why did I decide to join a network marketing company?
What the hell do I know about network marketing?
What the hell do I know about supplements?
1) I have chosen this company because I believe wholeheartedly that they have formulated THE best products out there. They’ve created a higher standard for quality, which you will all be seeing once the product is launched. They’ve also created their business model with the distributors in mind. Everything they’re doing is to help us create a great business for ourselves AND those on our team. This is NOT a “selfish” company, and neither are the members of my team. We all are in it to help ourselves while helping everyone else. You haven’t seen anything like this before.
2) I chose to get involved in network marketing for one reason; The oppurtunity this company offers will most likely never present itself again. Getting into a company on the ground floor is something that I just could not pass up. (And getting in for free was a huge bonus!)
3) Nothing. I am learning everything from my upline, the company, researching and reading everything I can. This is TOTALLY new to me.
4) Not much, other than I want them clean, effective and affordable, and Body FX products provide all three of those things.
My husband and I decided to make the leap of faith and upgrade to coach right away. By upgrading within the first week of pre-launch (which ends tonight) I now have the title of Founding Charter Coach. Along with the MANY perks of being an FCC, I will be receiving triple (free) leads from the company during the month of May! Say what?!?! What company does that?! Body FX does.
Beginning in May we will be offering several products including a meal replacement shake, protein, energy shots, etc. and also the JNL Fusion workout DVD series (which is already being sold through television infomercials and magazine ads).
I’ve offered this opportunity to my close friends and family and now I’m offering it you, my readers. If you are interested in learning more about this company and the opportunity they are offering, please email me at email@example.com.
Our team has vowed to not be a pushy group. We will not overload our social media outlets with product sales and we will not promote our products as the “solution” to all your weight loss needs. We believe in diets full of real and healthy foods, and only using supplements to “fill in the gaps” where needed.
Today is day 1 of project “Fiti Wants to RUN”. We had a break in the rain so I took my chances and went out. It wasn’t very far, but I did intervals with 3 of them being jogging.
I’m taking the safe route this time and SLOWLY building up to running. This is the price I have to pay for spending so many years being inactive and neglecting my health. My body was so torn down that I have to be very careful or I will be hurt and unable to exercise at all. The last time I tried to get into running, last year, I ended up with horribly painful shin splints and couldn’t do anything for quite some time. I was uneducated, I didn’t recognize the difference between good pain and bad pain, and I pushed too hard making the problem worse.
It was my husband who gave me a wake up call while I was feeling sorry for myself that I couldn’t run. He said something like “You basically spent most of your life not exercising. You’ve only been doing this a few months. Things are going to hurt.”
Shin splints, bad knee, excess weight, no cardiovascular strength. That’s what happens when you sit on your ass eating whatever and however much you want, smoking cigarettes because when you were young you wanted to be grown, and ignoring ALL of the info given to you throughout your life about nutrition, health, being active, and just taking care of your body.
We are either rewarded or punished for how we take care of ourselves. It’s up to us.
Yep. That’s it right there. My 11 year old son held a 3 minute plank. A plank on his hands, not forearms. This was before doing 21 pushups, too. He was bitten by the fitness bug last night and just couldn’t quit. Playing with the medicine ball, situps, planking, pushups, etc. I’m still shocked at his plank time. He hasn’t attempted a plank in months, and then he could barely hold it for a minute and a half! It must be all the football he’s been playing at the park with his buddies.
As for me, I’m getting my groove back. It’s not that I’ve NOT been exercising, just not to my full potential. And I recognize that. I think sometimes we need these little setbacks to help us remember why we started in the first place…
…While you’re (I’m) scrolling facebook liking and sharing amazing inspirational fitness and nutrition photos or info, and you realize that while you’re doing this you’re sitting on your ass eating a donut…
Yeah, that’s a good wake up call. You (I) want to give yourself (myself) a good smack for being such a hipocrit.
So with a new mindset; no more food deprivation, but portion control… No more being mad at the husband or kids for indulging, either indulge with them or choose an alternative… No more skipped exercises, I’ve come too far to look back now… No more dreading a workout, do what I love and what I’m feeling on that particular day… I think I’ve got the right outlook now. The one that works for me.
Hey, I haven’t even been on this journey for a year. I still have A LOT to learn. I’ve just decided to let that learning happen. I can’t do a 180 over night, or in 10 months, it’s going to take some time.
I LOVE this idea! Everyone gets to pick their own seasonings and veggies that go into their packet, so everyone is happy, and if not it’s their own fault. *hehe*
This one is mine. It includes the tilapia, zucchini, squash, red bell pepper rings, a small scoop of oil and some zesty lemon seasoning with a couple lemon wedges. My sweet potato fries are in the oven, too.
What’s on your table?
