Old vs NEW Mindset

Old mindset: I “wish” I was skinnier. I wish I didn’t love food so much. I wish I didn’t get injured all the time. I wish I was born with a better metabolism. I’ll be perfect tomorrow and deprive for the rest of my life, so I better indulge now. No one will ever love me. I am fat. I am ugly. I don’t deserve to fight for myself. I’ll finally get the respect I deserve when I’m skinny. People will care about me when I lose weight. Processed food comforts me and I can work out some other time.

NEW/NOW mindset (and it took work friends, and still does): I am capable beyond measure. Do not be afraid of your greatness. I LOVE food and that is awesome. My strength is an absolute strength. I am my own boss and my lifestyle is ultimately my choice. I love what I look like and the way I was born. Every time I smile I see my mother. Every time I BRING IT intensely in class I feel like my father. I have fat, I am not fat. I am beautiful. No one’s opinions define me, it’s how I think of myself that affects where I’m at in life. But Im pretty sure I’m super lovable, regardless of how lean I am. I love water. I love veggies. I love to treat my body right. That involves ice cream. That involves big ass sexy salads. That involves indulging in hookah and alcohol and not feeling like a bad person. That involves fueling like an athlete and playing like a kid often.

 I look different. I feel different. Because I think and act different. I highly recommend working on what will make you most you. Need to chat?! Lettuce.

The Results Are In!

As I return from an incredible trip in Mexico, celebrating hard work in business (we earned the all inclusive trip thanks to helping others in their health/fitness goals), Dwight and I's two year wedding anniversary, and my 32nd birthday ... I clearly believe in taking time to reflect and enjoy the harvest ...and I think you should too!

Its no coincidence that right before this trip, we finished our latest 80 Day Obsession...and while it may be, in its simplest forms, a workout program and a meal plan... its so much more as it affects who I am and who I become in all aspects of my life. I was able to kick back and celebrate the above things because of  the working out, eating right, and getting my mind and spirit tight. SO...full circle,I wanted to share my "80 Day Obsession" results, thoughts, and takeaways! 

  •  The reality is I probably ate the way I "should have" 60/80 days. I worked out 75/80 workouts (as my last two weeks have been a bit of a whirlwind with a new job)
  • BUT... I gained some serious strength in my gluteus, core, and body parts I normally struggle with.
  • I realized I don't need a sweet treat after every meal and fueling properly with the right proteins, veggies, fruits, carbs and fats make you feel like a goddess.
  • It was clear making time for me is of utmost importance. And that no matter what chaos you have going on in your life, doing something FOR you that works for you is key!
  • I'm certain that if you have 3 months before a wedding, trip, or just want to set a personal goal...as a coach, this will be my go to reference.

I'm SO excited to share my challengers results and continue to help our round two group! As for me?! I'll be enjoying many tricks and treats and rest... you know in moderation... before I jump into my next personal challenge! If youd like to join me in working hard and achieving such great results you'll be able to celebrate your own personal transformation victory, please message me to chat!

Have Health Risks? Lettuce help...

Its kinda crazy how long Ive been coaching others and how Im still WOWed at their results, their before and afters, how their health improves, and just how much HAPPIER and MORE CONFIDENT they are.

While most of you, including myself, are motivated by the scale creeping to a number you never thought itd get to, or just continually increasing your jean size, I know a lot of us know the truth behind these warning signs…. decreased quality of life and some serious health risks.

Today’s story is one Im super proud of and is indicative of the type of progress that happens in a #TEAMLETTUCE challenge group.

Read Miranda’s story below:

21 Day Fix is completed! This has been a LIFE CHANGING event for me. I lost 11.5 inches, 5.5 lbs, and decreased my insulin intake even more! My glucose levels are stable and in PERFECT range!! At this point, I won’t have to go on the insulin pump by staying on this path.

Losing weight is great and all, but the fact that I am extending my life expectancy and able to have more years with my family is worth more than anything I could ever imagine. I feel the healthiest I ever have since I was diagnosed 9 years ago with Type 1 juvenile diabetes. I have more energy, mental clearity, and a more positive outlook on life.

The 21 Day Fix and Shakeology have been the best tools to find an all natural way to better my health. It was hard work and Im glad I stuck with it. I really want to thank my amazing, supportive husband Michael Metzer and my coach Maria Romaine and everyone else who has supported me on my journey. Excited to start another round next week!”

How cool is this!? Yes we all want to rock our bikinis…but who doesnt want to increase their quality of life and beat their health issues with health, fitness, and happiness?

If YOU do, LETTUCE HELP and email me back today to get details on our#SUNSOUTGUNSOUT challenge group starting June 1st.
