Well HELLO!  We made it yet again to another Friday!  How about that, huh?!  I'm liking the weekly Friday posts, mostly everything has happened, some things have unfolded as planned, some not quite so much, makes for an interesting recap and reflection of the week :)  So, what has happened since last Friday.... let's see.  Well, I am SO sad to report that I did NOT make it to my 5K race last Saturday :(  I was AWFULLY sick!  I caught some kind of bug that completely wiped me out all day Saturday.  Unfortunate for me, but the race still went on and a few of my fabulously fit friends did AMAZING in the race!  So, very happy for them :)  And I'm happy to report that I am feeling much better and am just about good as new!
Really exciting things happening at the start of next week.  The 30 DAY PUSH Challenge starts Oct 1 and the Beachbody October Fitness Challenge kicks off as well!  Some lucky challengers took advantage of the $25 gift card sign on bonus I was offering and are now on their way to a healthy lifestyle and have $25 extra bucks in their pocket to spend as they wish!  Talk about a WIN - WIN!  The offer still stands up until midnight on Sept 30, what are you waiting for, jump on this offer!  Unsure about what a Beachbody Challenge group is?  Take a look at the video below to get the details then let's talk, OK?
Seriously, October should be dubbed CHALLENGE MONTH!  There is also another challenge going on this month, it is a much shorter challenge (lasting only 21 days) and requires NO EXERCISE.  Yep, you heard right :)  This Challenge is for those participants doing the Beachbody Ultimate Reset.  I did this back in July and in 21 days, I lost 10lbs, a pants size and lowered my overall cholesterol.  My doctor was FLOORED!  This 21 day program is legit and like hitting a RESET button on your body.  We have a HUGE group already lined up on Facebook for this group starting on Oct 10 and ending Oct 30 right before Halloween, tons of support, tons of coaches available to mentor you through and answer your questions.  But there really is only ONE QUESTION.... Are you ready to get LEAN & MEAN before HALLOWEEN?
WHEW!  Enough about the challenges!  What's on tap for THIS weekend!?  Deep breath... tonight heading out for some Halloweekend fun with the family at Cedar Point, tomorrow we have an awesome Super Saturday event happing with our Beachbody family, tons of new ideas being brought to the table that I will for sure report back!  Saturday night we head to a wedding and yes my hubby and I will be celebrating our 5 year anniversary that night as well!  And get this, the reception we are going to, it's at the same place ours was!  How cool is that?!  Should make for an awesome anniversary, we can somewhat re-live our wedding day 5 years ago :)  And Sunday, we head to the Cleveland Indians game!  Yeah they're not any good but hey, it's family day and who doesn't love a stadium hot dog right!?  :)  Have a good one all, catch ya next week!
LOL!!!  Every Friday I get like this!  I feel like I need to push the envelope with a quote or saying or a nice little 'TRUTHFUL' reminder :D  I mean really.... am I right?!  Harsh, but TRUE!  And I'm not knocking Pinterest either.... LOVE that site!  This is just funny and I had to share ;)  Please don't take offense, it's just for fun!

ALRIGHT!  We made it through another week!  We are well into September now, the routine is setting in and I'm LIKING it!  How about you?  This week, fitness-wise, I'm closing in on week 2 of the PUSH phase with ChaLEAN Extreme, definitely feeling stronger!
In other news, I've been talking to lots of people this week about their fitness goals and mentoring them on what their plan of action should be and I'm hearing A LOT of issues with time restraints.  Being that, peeps just can't find the time!  Whether it's not being able to find the time to workout, plan meals, etc.  **Disclaimer** You might not like what I'm about to say, but I refuse to coddle you, it won't do you any good, so here it is.  P.S. I love you all the same, that's why I'm being REAL with you ;)  WE ARE ALL BUSY!  None of us have THE TIME.  Do you think I have the time?  I work full time for a publishing company, I run a part-time business, I have soon to be 6 year old twins, I run my household, I'm a wife, I cook, I clean, I teach TurboKick.... really I could go on.  Bottom line is, we are ALL given the same 24 hours in a day, how we choose to spend those 24 hours is on us.  Ask yourself, are you really utilizing your time to the best of your ability?  Here's what I'm talking about... basically, we need to start managing our time better.  How do you do that you ask?  I'm glad you did, because I'm offering up something that can show you HOW to begin to manage your time better and get all the things done that you desire to PUSH you to reaching your goals.  You want some of that?
Here's the dealio.... For 30 Days, I will mentor you in a PUSH challenge.  What's a PUSH Challenge?  Well for starters... It's FREE! and it will last for 30 days, will help you with time management with a calendar and how to utilize a to-do list, define goals that align with your priorities and create a plan to reach them, get organized, get support and tools you need to reach your goals and form habits that will bring you success in all you do... sound like something you'd like to do??  And get this, this can be related to anything in life, not just fitness!  But by all means fitness can def. be apart of it!  I'm offering this to everyone and anyone.  I have a few peeps who are already on board!  This challenge will begin Oct 1st.  If you are interested, here are a few ways you can reach me to SIGN UP!  And remember, it's completely FREE!
