30 Day Shred Day 1 - To Do List.

Welcome to Day one of the 30 Day Shred!

This is a program designed by Jillian Michaels, and one of the programs I used back in 2012 to kick start my weight loss journey. Since 2012 I have lost over 70 lbs and given birth to the three most beautiful girls in the whole world.

I believe in this program, as it was one of the first programs I used and saw results! I'd love to have you join me on this journey!

Let's get started!

Before you begin the program, I believe it is essential to do the following 3 things.

  1. Take your measurements 
    • This is something I didn't do in 2012 and I regret it. I had to rely on the way I felt and I wasn't able to see numbers... This discouraged me quite a bit. So, take those measurements. 
  2. Take some Pictures! 
    • Take the pictures!!!!!! Even if NO ONE sees them but you, YOU  are worth it! 

  1. Identify a time that YOU will push play. 
    • What works for you? Does a 5 a.m. workout work best for you? How about after dinner and when the kids are in bed? What works for me, won't work for you and that's okay! 
Welcome to the journey, I can't wait to share this with all of you and see your progress!!

What to Do and How to Pack for your Visit to Shark Valley!

One of my Bucket List items for 2017 was to explore my city. I moved to Miami in January of 2006, and had never actually been to the Everglades. Of course, I'd driven through it on our commutes between Miami and Fort Myers when we lived there for a year, but i'd never actually explored the Everglades. So, we planned a trip! 

Over the last year, my husband has been biking to work and so he's become quite handy with fixing bikes. So, we didn't need to rent any when we arrived, but there are bikes available to rent if you don't have a bike or a vehicle large enough to transport one. 
Shark Valley is located just about as far west on calle ocho (8th Street) as you can go,  not too far beyond the famous "The Pit" Barbecue . At 25.00 per car for entrance into the park, i'd encourage you to make a family or friends trip out of it.

Running Tips from Jeff Galloway - Motivation


There is a point where every runner needs a little motivation to head out the door. Here is a proven strategy to get moving on the tough days.The method has also been helpful in dealing with other challenges.

Mentally Rehearse: The following is a mental exercise that you can do throughout the day to prepare for this situation, as you are sitting around at the end of the day, driving, or commuting home. Don't focus on the workout. Instead, break down the experience into a series of small steps which are easy to do. As you rehearse the sequence of these, over and over, you become more likely to follow the same pattern when you need to do so. Prepare by putting on comfortable shoes and clothes, and having your exercise equipment handy. You're not thinking about exerting yourself - just getting out of work clothes and into clothes that are comfortable but could be used for your workout.

Bike to Work Month: Gear up!

Welcome to Part 2 of my BIKE TO WORK series!

No matter what you do, it is important to have the right gear. However, a trip to the bike shop can be intimidating. Luckily, there are some very basic things that every cyclist needs to get started.
The EssentialsGet a Bicycle For real. You need it. I started out by borrowing my brother's bike. It was an old salvage job that sat out in the weather for a while. It was really hard to ride and always had some kind of problem. However, with a $0 investment fee, it was perfect for starting out.

But eventually you will need to put your money where you mouth is (or the seat of your pants are...) and buy yourself some real gear. Since the bicycle is going to be your most expensive investment, it's important to make an informed decision. There are several factors that you should consider, like:

Is this for commuting, exercise, pleasure or some combination?How much bike maintenance are you comfortable doing? How portable does your bicycle nee…
