Shaun Week – Day 2 (yesterday)

Shaun Week 2
Shaun Week Day 2 (yesterday) – Whoa, what a fabulous week this is! I’m really thankful though for the modifier, and I have to give her mad props, she is so helpful to watch and her moves are so clean and precise. Don’t think you can do it? You certainly CAN!. Shaun T created these workouts for anyone willing to push themselves to reach their goals. He has a chair modifier, included in every workout!

This has been the modifier, so far.

Yeah, I’m a sweaty mess during and after the workout! But in such a short workout, I can feel how much every single muscle in my body is getting a workout done! I hadn’t done a Shaun T workout in a while and I realized how much I missed his programs. I’ve done Focus T25 and some of Insanity Max:30. Hubby and I plan to do Insanity some time before or right after the holidays.

Aaaaaaand new hair (cut/style), messy and sweaty though since it was post-workout. 


 Color will change in a week or so too. To something like this pic below….
This is the cut my hair is too. My hair is a wee bit shorter than this, but it grow and we will keep tweaking the cut/style.

Catching Up – Day 1 – Shaun Week & OMG!

WOW our SYSOF Shift group has 553 members now!! 🔥🔥
We’re on Shaun Week right now!
Two days in! It’s a fabulous mix of Insanity + Focus T25.
The modifier is easy to follow.
The time goes by fast and you get an amazing workout!!
Day 1 (yesterday)
I thought I might die, yes I did. I did the workout AFTER
I went out for a training run 😅 Which was after I almost
collapsed from the killer heat out there! I got two really
hard miles in and then this….
The workout itself works every single part of your body!!
It’s a total body conditioning routine. If you’ve ever done Insanity
or Focus T25, it’s a lil bit of them rolled into one!
I’m a HUGE fan of Shaun T fitness. His workouts are exceptional
for working on your core, core strength. If you carry a lot of your
extra weight in your mid section, his workouts are the bomb!
There’s still time to join in the fun! Join The SYSOF Shift

A Healthy Summer Plan

18881856_10213530642520268_7167955277931614515_nYesterday (photo) was gorgeous out! Today it’s cooler and overcast. As usual the spring weather here is unpredictable and always iffy for outdoor fitness (aka running). I’m not one of those run in any type weather people, nope not all.☀️🔥 I get dehydrated fast in super hot weather,🌧️prefer watching the rain fall from my window in wet weather and am a ❄freeze baby in cold weather. Sooooo I’m thankful for other ways to get my days dose of fitness in on days like that.

I do go the gym occasionally, but going out to the gym is usually a more planned event with me and Keith. I’ve been training myself to get workouts done earlier and earlier in the day so heading out to the gym can be inconvenient as far as I’m concerned. I’d rather get my workout done and over, get my shower in and get on with my day.  On Demand and at home workouts are perfect for these times. On Demand though has it all. Cardio, strength, yoga, recipes & more. There’s something for everybody’s style, levels & taste.

Plus, you gotta mix it up when it comes to working out. Changing you routine to include cardio + strength + stretching gives you the best overall body conditioning. Strength training and yoga helps runners be better runners. Strength training & cardio give you that continuous calorie burn through the day (why it’s good to get it done in the a.m.) and yoga helps to repair and relax all those muscles you worked.

I have a summer fitness plan in place to do with my team. We even have a nutrition plan set. Having health be #1 and focused on before summer even hits will help us stay focused on staying healthy when all the summer temptations start hitting. This will allow us to indulge once in a while but not lose focus on staying healthy and not letting a day of a little indulgence turn into a week of unhealthy choices. When that happens I know that steamroll effect. You indulge, feel guilty, indulge again and again, let exercise slip away and before you know it you feel like you messed it all up, so why even try. I’ve been there and done that, I don’t want to go that route again. And that’s where accountability steps in and saves the day. Because I have a group of people all focused on the same thing, being healthy and staying on track. The group helps me to stay inspired 😘


Here’s the schedule I’ll be on after the 8th of June.


  • June 9th to June 11th – I’ll be doing the 3 Day Refresh. The refresh is a 3 day cleanse that comes with a meal plan and guide to help rid your body of toxins and to get you ready to make good changes with your health & fitness + BOD Yoga Studio. No running these three days, and no heavy workouts. On the refresh you should either do zero workouts, light walking, or light yoga. During the refresh you are supposed to eat a prescribed meal plan and that meal plan doesn’t give you the extra calories for heavy workouts.
  • June 12th to June 18th – Shaun week on BOD (daily schedule) + my run training 4 days a week.
  • June 19th to July 9th – I plan to continue with Shaun T, but with Insanity Max:30 + my run training 4 days a week
  • July 10th to July 16th – BOD Yoga Studio + my run training 4 days a week
  • July 17th to August 6th – Round 1 Of The Shift Shop + my run training 4 days a week
  • July 7th to August 27th – Round 2 Of The Shift Shop + my run training 4 days a week
  • August 28th to September 17th – Round 3 Of The Shift Shop + my run training 4 days a week

This has all been an evolutionary process for me. It was a slow crawl back. I’ve had to admit a lot of my frailties and fears along the way. I abused my body with food and I abused my body with lack of exercise. Having a desk job and hobbies that kept me on my butt quite a bit made it even worse. It’s been a lifestyle change, not a diet, that’s been the key to getting me healthy and fit again. And accountability to myself and others is what will keep me there. I owe it to my loved ones to be the healthiest best version of ME that I can be.

PS… If you want to join us, it’s never too late, just drop me a message if you’d like to know more about any of the programs I’ll be doing. They’ll all be on BOD which is the sweet part of it. I can take it on vacation with me and do it in my hotel room via my laptop!!

I’d love to get to know my readers more, what do you do for fitness?

BOD Fitness Challenge w/free trial?

BOD Special.jpg

I am really super excited because #1 I think you are getting an absolute steal with this offer and secondly it gives you the flexibility to pick and choose what workout you want to do based on your current needs. And #2 having On Demand at your access will give you so many options to choose from, you will never get bored with a fitness routine again.

I love BOD because you don’t have to continually purchase new programs every time that you finish one.  It allows you to pay a 1 year membership and you have access to every single fitness program that Beachbody has ever released plus all new releases for an entire year!  So, for example let’s say you start out with (where I think everyone should start), the 21 Day Fix and you loved it but you want something more intense, you can just open up your library and move to the 21 Day Fix Extreme or PiYo.   Another plus to BOD is that if you don’t like the program you picked, for whatever reason, you don’t have to return it, you just pick another one 😉  No excuses, your workout is right there whenever you want it. It’s great for traveling because you can access it from your laptop or tablet and GO!

Fire In My Soul

Yesterday I burned out my legs with run training and a killer stationary bike workout at the gym. And the humidity was intense and I got a lil sunburn🌞. So today I spent some time getting reacquainted with BOD. Worked on my upper body with fix extreme, chisel, and Joel’s BOD exclusive. 💪A most excellent strength day!
Keith and I may or may not be competing just a little bit these days to motivate each other. This and team SYSOF keeps me accountable and inspired ❤️


June – 21 Day Challenge

RTZ 21
I’m super excited! I’ll be doing round two of the 21 Day Challenge starting June 10. Last time I lost 9 pounds and inches all around. It’s time to put together a challenge group because summer is closer than we think. And we all need encouragement and support along the way.
The challenge will be 21 days. You will be given a meal plan to follow with portion control containers to measure out your food. You will be doing 30 min workouts. You will be drinking Shakeology every day to curb your cravings and keep you from eating between meals. This will all be done in a PRIVATE Facebook group and the goal is to help you stay accountable and to make your 21 day journey FUN!!!

Wearing INKnBURN Blue Healing Mandala

Finally I seem to have the right combination of nutrition and fitness tweaked and all the weight I gained a tear ago is melting away. That and the rain cleared today so I’m feeling awesome! This month has been a great month especially!

Tweaking what isn’t working when you think you’re trying so hard is really important. It may be that one small change will be that change everything moment. Mine was tweaking my nutrition, and adding weigh training into my rotation with run training and yoga.

So don’t get frustrated, don’t quit, tweak!
