Today, I have a great upper body workout — perfect for those of you with super busy schedules. You can do this workout almost anywhere, and it takes hardly any time to do!
The Valband Deluxe is a band you can bring anywhere to get an awesome upper body workout.
You can do the “big” exercises for your back and shoulders by securing the band to something stable, or focus directly on your arms by stepping on it… You can get it in light, medium or strong resistance. Simple. Portable. Amazing. Highly recommended.
Earth Day is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. With all the talk about global warming and the current condition of our Earth, we have to wonder: what can we do to help protect our planet?
It’s not how many times you fall down, fall off, fall over, or fall from…
It’s whether you get back up that matters.
As Tony Robbins likes to remind us, “Your past doesn’t equal your future.”
Watch this super inspirational video and tell me you are ready to get up and start again or go to the next level.
If your New Years resolutions have fallen by the wayside, if your body is feeling soft and you haven’t really committed to the diet you started 6 weeks ago, I’m here to remind you that today is a new day! Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and get on with it.
1. Choose your goal.
If you have been stuck lately or not super motivated then maybe you need a bigger goal. There are times when baby steps are appropriate and there are times when you should just dive head first into the deep end. Do something that scares you. Something big enough to get you out of bed in the morning when you’d rather stay under the covers. Circle the date on your calendar and march towards it.
2. Make it public.
I’ll make this easy for you. Declare your goal in the comments section below. I will choose 2 random entries to win a GymBoss timer – my fave new fitness tool.
3. Get a friend.
It definitely helps to have someone to be accountable to. Get your friend to commit to the race, training, program, whatever. The girls in my Red Carpet Ready Club have been tremendously supportive of each other. I know it helps to have someone to count on and to also lovingly hold your feet to the fire. You won’t want to stand up your 6 AM running partner.
Here are some ideas for you (but feel free to come up with your own):
Get your best body ever by REALLY committing to either I Want My Bikini Body or Action Hero Babe. Schedule now, either a beach vacation or a photo shoot for when you complete the program you decide to go with.
Sign up for a race. Even if you’ve never run before, you could run a race 6 weeks from now. Races happen nearly every weekend, so there’s no excuse. Want a bigger challenge? Sign up for the Warrior Dash or Tough Mudder. Check out their websites and videos – that will throw your training into gear!
Are you ready? Declare your goal and get started. You will thank me later, I promise.
“There are only two options regarding commitment: you’re either in or you’re out. There’s no such thing as life in-between.” -Pat Riley
