I am not sure if you realize how a healthy lifestyle can REALLY impact one’s life, confidence, self-esteem, happiness, etc… BUT it really truly does!!This is just an example!! I met Janice through Beachbody… she simply wanted to create some new healthy habits and help others do the same!
She is just here to show you AGE IS JUST A NUMBER and has NOTHING to do with what you can achieve in life!!!
This momma and Nana is KILLING it with her fitness goals AND in her coaching business!!!!!
Can I say I want to be like you when I am 60??? Or even 50??? I just want to say congratulations on not only rocking your entire journey over the past 4 years, but CRUSHING 80 day obsession which is NOT an easy program!! You have really set the bar high for yourself and are showing so many others what is possible!!!
These are some of her words to encourage someone else who may be a little older than me, but has similar goals!!
“I used to say…
I’m too old
It’s too late for me
I don’t have time
It’s too hard
I’m not strong enough
I hate cardio ( I still say that, lol)
I have arthritis pain, (still do, but exercise sure has helped)
I’m not disciplined enough to workout consistently
But once I decided to fling those excuses to the wayside…my whole life changed.Age is just a number friends, I didn’t start til I was 56 and that was 4 years ago!!!”
IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO MAKE A CHANGE!! DO SOMETHING TODAY TO START THAT YOU CAN THANK YOURSELF FOR LATER!!!
Yesterday marked the last workout of Phase 1 with 80 Day Obsession with Autumn Calabrese and I must say, there are so many things I love about this program!
I love that it is more like the workouts I would do at a gym, except Autumn thinks of exercises that I wouldn’t have thought of to really focus in on your booty, arms, and abs!
Being 12 weeks post-partum, I was not sure how my body would handle this program, but each and every day I am feeling stronger and stronger!
Although at first I was not too excited about my results, I thought more about it and realized I have made a lot of changes! 3 lbs and 4 inches down for good, but the energy I am gaining and how strong I feel, and the fact that I’m finally getting consistent with my workouts and nutrition is my biggest victory so far!
These workouts are by no means easy, in fact, they have been extremely challenging for me and my body is sore every day, but it hurts so good! Each day, my post workout meal consists of our Beachbody Performance Recover, along with Shakeology which is full of superfoods! This shake was orange recover and vegan vanilla Shakeology which is more plant based protein, rather than form animal protein! It helps so much with muscle recovery!
The timed nutrition has been a little bit of a struggle since I’m still working on my time management, but I’m excited that I am making healthier choices and my meals have been fun and not boring, which makes it easier to keep going!

One meal I made this week was a healthier version of nachos. If you know me, you know I am slightly obsessed with loaded nachos! So I took some bell peppers, cooked up chicken in the Instant pot for 10 minutes with chicken broth and chili seasoning, and shredded the chicken over the peppers with black beans and baked it for 10 minutes! Topped with a little shredded cheese , taco sauce, and plain greek yogurt as my sour cream, I got myself a good meal!

I am so excited to see what Phase 2 brings this post-partum mom bod of mine!! I am so excited to share my fitness journey, not just for my own accountability, but also to show other mamas what is possible!! I know as mommas, we are busy, but also we are trying to adjust to this new lifestyle and caring for a new baby, but it is so important to take care of us too! It is crazy to think how much better we feel when we give our bodies a little tender, loving, care!
