Busy Week!

I am so so excited right now.  In 2 days, I’m leaving for Summit, which is THE biggest Beachbody event of the year!

Picture thousands of Beachbody coaches, 3 days of leadership seminars, and workouts with the hottest celebrity trainers like Shaun T, Chalene Johnson, and Autumn Calebrese, all on the Vegas strip!

Not to mention the fact that they're using this event to officially release their newest workout by Chalene, called PiYo; I'm dying to start this program, and I'm already planning my next challenge group so I'll be sure to post the details when they come in!

I’m super busy this week trying to wrap things up with work before I leave, then packing for this amazing trip, and most importantly…deciding what to wear! This is going to be a tough trip to pack for..workouts, business casual dress, cocktail attire, pool gear….I hope it all fits in my carry-on!

I can’t wait to share all my pictures with you next week, but until then, make sure you follow me on Instagram (@babebeforebaby) where I’ll be posting pictures throughout my trip!
Vegas here I come!

There's no sugar coating this post, it's going to be as real as it gets.
I lost a friend last weekend...he passed Friday after a long battle with cancer, and frankly, I'm devastated.

He was too young.  He had such an amazing family.  He was a talented architect.  He was so many things, and he was taken from us too soon.  I'm writing this as I'm preparing to head off to his funeral, and while I know that this is going to be so very difficult for me, I can't bear the thought of what his wife and children are experiencing right now.  I was blessed to have had the opportunity to know him as a friend and co-worker, and my life is so much better for it.

Dan taught me to live every day to it's fullest.  Even when he was at his sickest, he made every effort to make good memories with his family.  They went on an "ice cream tour" for the kids spring break after having to cancel their planned vacation because he was too sick...I loved seeing his smiling face eating ice cream every day of the week at a different spot.  He knew how to make the most of any situation, and to not take things too seriously.  I hope that I can live half the life he has.  

He was a good man.  

He will be missed.

We love you Dan.

Fit by the Fourth

So….I’ve been a little MIA from the blogging world, I know.
Life is a little crazy around these parts! Work is keeping me busier than usual, and we’ve been doing some minor work on our house too, so all of my free time has been going to those little odd projects in an effort to get my house back to normal as soon as possible!
What does that all mean? Well I’ve been admittedly slacking on my diet and exercise L

I’m not perfect, I’ve never claimed to be, and the reality is that life happens and sometimes we lose focus.  The important thing is acknowledging that small things do still add up, and that every little effort we make towards a healthier lifestyle DOES matter, it’s not an all or nothing attitude.

I needed some inspiration this morning, so I was looking through my last 21 day fix challenge group results…these women did AMAZING!!  Even those that admitted they weren’t perfect with their food choices still lost tons of inches and a few pounds too.
Some women lost 4 pounds, a few lost 6 or 7 pounds, and a few more lost OVER 10 POUNDS!! This is exactly the motivation I need to kick my butt back into gear, so I’ve decided to start a new 21 day fix accountability group that I’m calling “Fit by the Fourth”.
I’m going to start it next Friday, June 13th so we end the day before the 4th of July, so email me asap, you’ll have to get your order in by tomorrow if you want to join us! babebeforebaby@gmail.com

I’m ready to go into this summer strong, how about you??
