Lose That Skirt!! Show Off That New Bathing Suit!


 
EEKKK.....It taking a lot of guts for me to post this picture, but Im ready to SHOUT it out...."MOMS, I'm DONE with the SKIRT!!!"

LADIES.....If you read my post a few weeks back about me wearing the ugly Chciago Bears skirt to the pool, then you know what I'm talking about! This is me, with my son in Florida, yesterday at the beach. I have not worn a 2 piece suit in 6 years!! I will admit, it was a little weird putting it on for the first time this week, but once I got out on that BEACH, I felt PROUD!!!
My body is not perfect. I've come to terms that my stomach will never be the same after having 3 c-sections in five years. Yes, I have SCARS on my stomach, I have HANGING skin when I bend over, BUT that doesn't matter. I'm proud of my WARRIOR marks on my body. Women, you know what I mean!!

I may have my battle scars, but that was not an EXCUSE not to be healthy and lose weight. After a year with Beachbody workouts, I am down to my pre-pregnancy weight. I FEEL amazing!! I have my ENERGY back. I SMILE more often. I'm just a HAPPIER person both inside and out!
MOMS....show off your warrior wounds this summer! No more hiding under that ugly skirt!! Let's get you out of that SKIRT and into something that makes you feel PROUD!! Now is the time to get started on your fitness journey. Do this for you!!

~ Are you ready to make that change?
~ Want to feel like YOU again?
~ Time to get rid of that ugly skirt?

I would love to help you. My next accountability group starts APRIL 12th.
Feel free to comment or message me for details.

"Beach Fit" group starting March 16th!!

Ok Ladies...take a look at these 2 pictures.
Both bathing suit #1 and #2 are both one pieces.
 

How many of you see women at the pool or beach in a suit like #1? A LOT, right? Now the question is WHY? I know the ANSWER...you want to cover as much as possible because you are insecure about your body. Did I GUESS right??

Well guess what....this was ME two summers ago! I wore what I called my ugly "Chicago Bears Bathing Suit". It was a blue and orange suit with that long, hanging skirt to cover my butt and thighs. Then I would tug at the top to stretch it out so no one could see it sticking to my stomach as I got out of the water. Can ANYONE feel my pain?? As summer ended, I knew I did not want to wear that ugly looking suit ever again!! It wasn't even worth giving to Goodwill, so I threw it away. (Kind of funny, but not.)

With working out only 30 minutes a day and cooking clean meals, I now have a completely different looking body that I will no longer HIDE behind the ugly "skirt". You can too!! It doesn't always have to be a bikini, you can ROCK OUT a super cute one piece like suit #2 and feel CONFIDENT!! Throw away that skirt!!

Summer is only 12 weeks away. Who is ready to start getting in SHAPE NOW so you are ready to hit the pool Memorial Day Weekend?

After the holidays, he put back a few pounds and was mad at himself for gaining after all of his hard work with P90x3 and PiYo.  I convinced him to try the 21 DAY FIX with me after New Years.  After just 2 1/2 rounds, Todd is at his COLLEGE WEIGHT!! He is so EXCITED, he can't stop smiling LOOK AT THE PICTURES....CRAZY, RIGHT???

Once you see RESULTS, you can't stop!! Its the BEST FEELING! Todd had to leave for work at 4:30 a.m. this morning.  Would you believe he woke up at 3:00 am to get in his 21 Day Fix Yoga before he left. You know why?  He LOVES the RESULTS he's seeing!! It makes him a better husband, father, lacrosse coach and most of all....he's happiest with HIMSELF!!
