Beachbody

And no, I’m not talking about me having a “beachbody”!  :)

I’m talking about the Beachbody workout programs.  You know ‘em… P90X, Insanity, T25.  Their infomercials are on all the time!  And if you still don’t know what I’m talking about, check it out here: www.beachbody.com

So, now that we’re on the same page, let’s get to the point of this post.

I recently bought my first Beachbody workout program.  Actually, I bought a challenge pack {a workout program & a 30 day supply of Shakeology}.  And while I was at it.. I signed up to be a Coach.  Yup, me… a health/fitness/lifestyle Coach.  The girl who loves her cheeseburgers and Mello Yello.  BUT… I need this!  I need this because I’m tired of looking in the mirror and not liking what I see.  I’m tired of my clothes being too snug.  I’m tired of sitting down and a fat roll going over my pants and I’m wondering if anyone is noticing.  I’m tired of feeling lazy and sluggish.  I’m tired of not feeling confident in myself.

The program I chose was 21 Day Fix. <– Click to read more about it.
It comes with portion control containers, a meal plan, and a 30 minute workout 1 time a day.  I knew this would be the perfect place for me to start.  Eating is a huge problem for me.  I love all the stuff that’s not good for you and I can’t name 5 vegetables that I like.  The great thing about this meal plan is I still get to eat things I like, just in moderation.  And the workouts.. they are not hard at all!  Okay, that’s a lie.. they make you sweat and get your butt moving, but they will definitely not kill you!  And what’s even better is I will hopefully be seeing some awesome results in 21 – TWENTY ONE – days!

I plan on talking more about my first week eating/workouts/results in another post.

So, in the end, I’m doing this for me and if I help others and make new friends along the way, then that will just make it even more awesome!

Congrats To Our Graduate!

haligradparty1On Sunday, May 18th, we celebrated my sister graduating college with a small family cookout.  We’re so so proud of her!  She received a Bachelor’s in Psychology while working full time and being a mom.  Congrats Hali!

We had a spread of food that was amazing!  Sirloin steaks, bbq’d hot dogs, cheese potatoes, salad, rolls, a cake, and ice cream.  Man, I’m ready to have another party.  Can you graduate again, Hali?   —  Carter ate his usual, hot dogs!

After we ate, Carter had to fly his “heckicockter” (remote control helicopter) and Pa (my daddy) got it stuck in a tree.  Mac and Pa came to the rescue though!  Nothing a fishing pole masking taped to a broom stick taped to a cattle stick can’t fix.

Two of my Favorite People!

nanny & carter

Last Saturday, my sister, Nanny, and I had a yard sale at my Nanny’s house.  The turn out wasn’t too good, but the company was pretty awesome!  Look at these two having the time of their lives!  Definitely a framer!
