Our children see us. They may not listen to us at times, or at least seems that way. They don't seem to be paying attention most of the time.
But one thing Is for sure... our actions speak louder than our preaching ever will.
I believe it is our duty to show them what it means to be a mom and someone who wants to make health and an active lifestyle a priority. Because we are a generation that isn’t just telling them to eat their vegetables and move their bodies–but we are showing them what it looks like to Actually eat vegetables, avoid soda, exercise regularly and surround ourselves with like minded people. We are leading by example not just preaching what we don't practice.
We are our children’s role models and
We can't take this job lightly! ❤️️💪🏻💕🌺 #momlife #stronggirls #welovemermaids

Week 3 of Core de force has me feeling all ninja today! Need to push play but first wanted to share with you a few notes and thoughts 👩🏻 💭
We have been equipped with unbreakable strength and purpose. We have been made to make an impact and leave a legacy. Yesterday's message at Church was so powerful I wish you could've all been in there next to me.
The theme was about leaving a Legacy- living beyond yourself. 💡How do we want to live our life?
💡What can we do to use our life to make a difference in other people's lives?
💡What can we do to shape our kids' lives spiritually so they can make a difference in the world?
This is not necessarily new to me, pretty sure not new to you either.
I believe that my fight against my own obesity and health issues started as that but there was something bigger in the horizon. My story has become my message and my passion. My career and purpose going hand in hand. Trust me when I tell you everything changes when Don't do this for the scale or the mirror, do it for the strength, health and tenacity that comes from the sacrifices you are making in your own health & fitness journey.
I do want to live with purpose and leave a legacy. I do want to continue to be a warrior and a messenger of positivity and hope.
Don't let your life go to waste. Be a warrior. Not a worrier. Be an encourager. Be the story teller of your own story so that others become inspired by you and they turn around and make a difference in others.
LIVE for the Line not the Dot! (If you were there you know what I'm referring to) ⚫️➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Don't live for the moment and your life here.... live for the journey and the legacy you will leave behind.
1 lb lean ground beef raw (80-95% lean)
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1. Preheat grill or broiler on high.
2. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Shape mixture into burger patties or small meatballs.
3. Grill or broil for 4 to 6 minutes on each side or until desired doneness.
4. Place patties on lettuce leaves or burger bread with lettuce, tomatoes and onion, or just on top of a salad.
For my kids I would chop them in small bite pieces and serve them with rice and a side of veggies or fruit.

It's safe to say that I am getting close to the end of week 1 of Core de Force. So far what can i say, loving the workouts and loving the soreness I've been feeling lately. Maybe I'm crazy but I just like to feel that little pain from soreness here and there, cause it means it's working.... and that my body is compeltely surprised! ha! anyway.... took my before or NOW pictures and measurements and I am ready to commit to finishing this program as strong as I possibly can... and those squares better show up! lol
this is my meal plan for this week. I am cutting calories a little bit because my goal is to get shredded so I am follwoing the formula that the eating guide suggests, although I may have to adjust that due to the fact that I teach Insanity classes almost daily and I need a few extra calories to get me thorugh the day. If I add I will add maybe a couple hundred calories and that simply happens by eating another fruit or nut butter, or if critical, a second shakeo and call it a day. Check it out... and don't freak out with my lack of creativity...
I am boring and simple when it comes to food. although I just made a roasted chicken and it looks pretty AMAZING... magazine cover worth it for sure. nothing crazy to it... marinated it last night with garlic, balsamic vinegar, himalayan salt and pepper and earlier today I threw the guy in the oven for about 45 minutes and voila!! dinner is made and ready for tonight! with roasted asparagus and rice for the crew, i'll be making a cauliflower mash later.

Guys I can't tell you enough how important Meal Planning and actually sticking to a meal plan it is!
You are committing your efforts and investing time in your workouts and exercise routines but seriously, if your eating is not where it needs to be, you won't see the results you want.
As I start this 30 day journey with Core de Force, I am going all in. For the next 30 days I will avoid sugar, alcohol, grains, treats and other extras that don't belong in the plan. At least these 30 days so I can stay focused and really see what this program does for me.
I encourage you to do the same! Trust me when I tell, WE CAN DO THIS!
I am waiting for my package to arrive but in the mean time I'm using the resources on My Beachbody on Demand and I'll be going over the approved foods list.... sorry no beer! lol and i will start planning my meals and I will share with you all later.
In the mean time, I would like for you to start putting your brain to work as well and planning your week ahead. What do you have going on next week and what foods do you need to shop for....? I leave you with those thoughts, planning is hard! Heck it is super hard for me becuase I am not a planner. It makes me uncomfortable!!! you hav eno idea but I try and I've made huge improvements on that department.
You can do it too!!!
ok, so I want to see you putting this to work.... we are going to get kickass results and it begins right now!!!
>>>>> Here is your PRINTABLE BLANK MEAL PLANNER! <<<<<
You cant write over it on the computer... Print it, print multiple copies so you have extras for weeks to come. Don't over think and complicate this. i am sharing this with you to Make your life simple. I know, I love you too!! xoxo
Print it and start writing your meals...
I have decided that I am doing shakeology for every breakfast so I can maximize the use of my mornings and not spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Super quick, add half banana or berries, coconut oil or almond milk and mix it with 120z of water and lots of ice... throw in the blender and boom! done! healthiest meal of the day to get me in the perfect mood for every day!
