Okay, when I get something like this in the mail it gets me SUPER excited! Oh yeah...I got the Fiiiyahh! Turbo Fire! :) I just started it, I've been doing it since Monday June, 20, 2011 and I'm loving it.  It's like dance kickboxing type moves and it's got great pump up music and it's fun to do & I feel the burn which is always a great feeling after the workout is done! I know I worked my butt off...literally :)
 I've also been drinking one Shakeology shake a day, because I love something that I am able to fix up easy and fast and IT is jam packed with vitamins, minerals, protein and Essential Amino Acids, Antioxidants, Digestive Enzymes, Prebiotics, and Phytonutrients.  It is packed FULL of good stuff, it's about $4 per serving, which I say is pretty good for lunch & I get a whole months worth, So it is so worth it to me!! I know I need more good stuff like this in my diet! I like the Chocolate kind mixed with a little peanut butter and a banana OR frozen strawberries. I feel energized and great & It keeps me full for a good 4 hours or more and that is a miracle for me!! :)
You can see a video about it Here

 I thought I would share just a little of my Fitness story, especially for those who don't know me. You can also see the About Me page to get to know me better.
First thing I want to say is everybody is Beautiful no matter what you look like, no matter what shape your body is, no matter what you weigh, everybodys body is really doesn't matter.  You are Beautiful inside and out, no need to feel like you need to be perfect, no need to feel like you should look like somebody else.  Nobody is perfect!!!
I just believe that when I am trying to be more fit and healthy and taking care of my body, I feel better, I have less stress, I have more confidence, more energy, I'm a better mom for my kids and a better wife for my husband, it's something that I do for me that makes me feel good! We are meant to take care of our bodies and keep it in the best health we possibly can! So that's why I strive to be fit and healthy!
This is the part where I'm feeling a little exposed...haha, but oh well, other peoples stories always motivate me and if I can help hopefully somebody than I am willing to share!! Okay, I have had 4 kids, I gained 65-70 pounds with each. Having kids changes your body big time and I know for any mom they wonder if they'll be able to get their pre-baby body back, it can be stressful & sad to some. But, it's just a part of life, it's beautiful and wonderful and so worth the body changes.
*This is me prego with my 2nd child*
 *prego with my 4th*
 *After my 3rd*
 I have worked hard to get back to my pre-babies weight, there are many moms who do, easier for some than others. I feel totally proud of myself for doing it and I know how hard I have worked. For me it's the exercise that got me where I am now. I need to work on my eating and I'm sure I'll be able to lose those last 10-15 and get more toned too! That's my current goal.  So I'm gonna continue each weak to share my progress with Turbo Fire and Shakeology to see how it works for me! I'm excited to see if there is any change!
~totally out of comfort zone....eeeekk, but proud of myself!~
(Running and Insanity got me here)
Other things I enjoy doing is Running, I'm hoping to get in some more miles, so far the summer has been hard for running, I'll try to get it in where I can.  Signing up for races was a huge help and motivator for my running, so after the summer I'll get more back into that as well!
