Making the Shift

     Wow I can't believe I have been gone from this blog for 4 months. So much has happened both good and bad in those 4 months, but it is time to recommit myself to well me, and I want to take you along for the ride.
   
    I sit here trying to think about what I should even say. Sometimes I laugh at my journey and sometimes I cry. As humans we sit and judge ourselves, you can look in a mirror and no matter how "perfect" you are according to society's standards you are bound to find something that you just do not like about yourself. It is human nature after all! I started my journey as a Beachbody coach about 2 years ago, and 12 pounds lighter then I am right now! I was looking back at my goal weight, my goal measurements, when I almost began to laugh. I thought I was "fat" and "out of shape" 2 years ago and 12 pounds heavier. Now I have to admit when I started The Shift Shop 2 weeks ago I hated myself, probably in every way. I was at my all time highest weight, I was depressed, tired, and just felt defeated. 142.6 I looked at that number over and over again, how can that be possible. A 94 pound young adult, already 3 kids down, heavier then I was the day I gave birth to my final child. I decided why not try this, make the shift, as Chris would say lol. So work out wise I jumped in, pushed and pushed. Missed 1 day, but I tried not to let that get me down. Eating was ehh, better then I was but not perfect. Then I started to FEEL the shift, FEEL the change. Not just in the way I felt, but the way I looked. 1 pound turn to 2, 3, 4, 5 and so on. Here we are day 1 of week 3. Speed 45 had me modifying more then I could have ever wanted :( but something else happened. I may have been modifying, but guess what I didn't die! Even better my heart rate, sweat levels, drive got stronger and stronger! Despite the fact that today and the next 6 days I will have no carbs lol I am looking FORWARD to tomorrow. Tears will pour out, and names may be called, But it is all part of the shift. Not to who I thought I wanted to be, but to who I SHOULD be. A stronger, fitter, happier me. someone who can walk with confidence and power because I know that I have done my best, and I am better then who I use to be!

     So many things going on in my mind right now :) plans, dreams, hopes. I have to say I am truly amazed by what shifting your mindset can do. Today is the first day of the rest of my life it feels like, so much to plan and reach for. Do you have any goals you are reaching for?

30 Day Beach Body Challenge- Day 3 #30dayfitness

Here we are at day 3, now unfortunately I am to sick to work out today but I wanted to make sure that I shared the information with you on how to do these exercises so that everyone could easily get their's done. I will catch up as I can, may even try to add extra to the days once I feel better. For today it is 50 burpees and 50 kick down crunches. If you don't know how to do these make sure to scroll down for directions! You will also see why with the flu these aren't doable.lol HOW TO DO A BURPEE!

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
