All Access in 2017

A good craftsman knows that to begin and finish a job you need the right tools. Your health and fitness journey is the same. If you have goals that you want to reach wouldn’t you reach them faster with the right tools?

The All Access Challenge Pack provides you with ALL of the tools that you will need for your health and fitness journey.Total Access In 2017

Without having All Access I would never have been able to get the amazing results that I did with Insanity Max 30. I streamed my workouts daily for the last 60 days. I was able to look at the program documents any time I wanted, like the workout calendar and how to get started. I watched my workouts on my computer, my ipad and even on my iphone.

I drank shakeology every day, sometimes twice a day when I was on the road. I had a coach that I was able to turn to for support and guidance.

Why did I choose On Demand?

Yes, you can do a health and fitness journey without these programs, shakeology and a coach. I have done it before BUT it was a lot harder to do it on my own AND I NEVER got the results that I am getting now. I NEVER knew what to do for a workout to focus on my problem areas. I KNOW that my nutrition was definitely lacking.

Why do it alone when you can do a program that has been created by experts. That focuses on what you need to do and when. That helps with your nutrition by telling you how to eat, what to eat and how much. The meal plans are super easy to follow.

EVERYTHING that you need to be SUCCESSFUL on your journey is included.

So why are you making it hard on yourself?

Beachbody is currently running a special on the All Access Challenge Pack and I KNOW that you will be surprised at what it is.

Comment below for more details on the special offer and how I can help you achieve your goals with my next challenge…Bad Ass Beauties.

Insanity Max30 Week 1 Results


I want to let you in on a little secret…I absolutely hate cardio!  Too strong?  lol  My favorites have always been strength training so it completely took me by surprise when I said yes I will do Insanity Max30 with you.  About 10 seconds after I committed I was trying to come up with ANY excuse/reason that would get me out of it.

But, then my coach made a video talking about committing to yourself.  She asked if when you give your word on something does it really mean anything or does  everyone know that sooner or later you are going to go back on what you said?

In the past my word didn’t really stand for anything. I broke commitments with other people, I broke them with myself.  I would start something with the best intentions but soon I would give myself a hundred reasons of why it was okay for me to stop.

I don’t want to be known for that.  I want my yes to be yes and my no to be no.  I want people to know that when I say something it is going to happen.  I want to know that when I commit to something I am going to finish and not give up on myself.

So I decided that I was going to do Insanity Max30 to the BEST of my ability.  I told myself that this is the beginning of something new for me.  That I was going to put myself first and that meant not backing out on this.

I started my Insanity Max30 journey while I was visiting my daughter in Wichita.  I know, I know.  Starting something like this while on vacation may not have been the smartest thing but I didn’t want to give myself time to think about this. 🙂  So I jumped right in.

Imagine my surprise to find out that I am actually LOVING this program!  ❤  It is 30 minutes a day, 6 days a week. I have completed 8 days so far and I am already seeing results.  Not just in a physical transformation but also in my endurance.  On day 1 I did Cardio Challenge and maxed out at 8:31. Seven days later I did the same workout and doubled my time.  I maxed out today at 17:35! Woot!  Woot!  Yep I am excited about that!

What do I mean by maxed out?  It simply means that I pushed as hard as I could for as long as I could. When I got to the point that I had to stop, well that is my maxed out time.

I am happy to admit that I have completed EVERY workout so far and I am drinking shakeology EVERY day for breakfast.  Today I stepped on the scale and took my measurements.   So far I have lost 2.2 lbs and 11.75 inches!  ❤  That is in one week!

To say that I am happy with my results would be an understatement.  My stomach is starting to shrink, my mindset is already different and my performance has increased.  I would say that is a triple win for me.  Changes are in the making and I am pushing on!  I am ready to be victorious with week 2! ❤

Are you doing Max30?  What day are you on? If your not doing it, what are you waiting for? 😉

Make each day count!


Country Heat…Can you really get results?

After I had my surgery on December 20th I thought that I front-resultswas going to go backwards in my journey and I was ready to throw in the towel. I had carpal tunnel in my right wrist and cubital tunnel in my right elbow.
No planks, no pushups, no weights. I was not happy as I had just joined a group that was going to start weight lifting. 😦
But then I started thinking about the old me and how I NEVER finished what I started. When life threw an obstacle in my path I would always quit or hide. And I didn’t want to be that person anymore, which is why I started this journey 2 1/2 years ago.
I decided to give Country Heat a try. I admit that I wasresults-back completely skeptical. I honestly thought I was wasting my time and that I would never be able to lose weight or tone up with this program. I am happy to say that I was wrong.
Yes I started this program with my arm in a sling. I modified because jumping around hurt. I didn’t do any of the arm movements. Gradually I started adding them in and stopped
modifying altogether.
My totals for Country Heat. I lost 14 inches!!!! I lost 4% of my body fat!! AND I lost 5.2 lbs!!!
The skeptic in me was ecstatic to see that not only did I get some results but I was amazed at how many inches I lost.
Do you have any questions about Country Heat, Shakeology or maybe how you can start your health and fitness journey?  If your not currently working with another coach feel free to contact me.  🙂



Country Heat…Disappointed?

The last thirty days have flown by. I admit that when I first started Country Heat I was a little disappointed. 😒coach

The group that I am in with Autumn Calabrese was starting Chisel from Hammer and Chisel. I love that program and had been very excited to do it at the same time that Autumn was doing it.

I was so angry that I couldn’t but I knew that just having surgery on my wrist and elbow, well there was absolutely no way I was going to be able to lift

I could have used my surgery as an excuse to stop. I could have used my disappointment at not being able to do Hammer and Chisel as an excuse to stop. BUT I DIDN’T.

I knew I had limitations so I just found something that worked for me. Country Heat. At first I danced with my arm in a sling to keep it steady, then I got to the point where I would let my arm down and just do they foot movements now I do it all.

So if you want to know if you can lose weight and tone up when you have to modify even a dance program…well come back in two days when I share my results.

Until then get moving! 🙂 Even if it is walking around your living room. Or turn the radio on and dance like no one
is watching.

And know that I am in a little town called EXETER Maine waiting for you to decide it’s time. I am ready to help you. You just have to decide that YOU ARE WORTH IT! ❤️week-3-back

Are you ready?

I have a group starting in January 30th to help you get started. And there is a spot with your name on it. 😉



It’s Turbo Fire Time

One thing that I love about being a Beachbody coach is that my daughter Kaitlyn Drummond does it with me! This means that we get to go to the Annual Coach Summit (Beachbody’s yearly coach get together). We choose which trainer we want to work out with, the top coaches that we want to learn from and then of course the amazing times at the football stadium with ALL of the coaches as we celebrate our successes, new products and just kick up our heels!
I have gone on two trips with Kaiti, both times to Nashville TN, this year we are going to New Orleans! Oh yeah! In 2015 we chose to workout with Chalene Johnson and do Turbofire. This is a killer program that I have fallen in love with but I have never finished it. The music is awesome and upbeat, Chalene’s energy is out of the park and it’s just a lot of hardwork, sweat and fun!turbofire
I have decided that when I finish Country Heat I am going to do Turbofire for my next workout program. I have found that when you do a program with others you feed off everyone’s energy and excitement. With that said, I would love to have you join me.
Who wants to do Turbofire with me? We can be Fire buddies! ❤

Country Heat Week 3 Progress

I have been told repeatedly that with hypothyroidism I will not be able to lose weight easily.  I should just give up and live a happy life obese.  Yes, it is a struggle but I am not giving up.

If there is no progress there is no struggle.

The struggle is real, I have to fight for every ounce and every inch that comes off and believe me I have been.  BUT I have NEVER had so much fun doing it!

I am on week 3 of Country Heat with just one more week until my final results.  You can bet your bottom dollar that I will be kicking it up this week. 🙂

Last week I continued to follow the deluxe workout schedule for Country Heat.  Every day that I was schedule to work out I pushed play.  I even started working out first thing in the morning instead of waiting when I have more energy.  This made a huge difference in my workouts.  I am no longer exhausted before I even lace up the sneakers.

I am very proud of my results so far.  I just had surgery almost four weeks ago so I was limited on what I was able to do with the arm movements at first. But that hasn’t stopped me.  I am kicking up my cowgirl boots and having a hootenanny good time!  ❤week-3-front

When Should I Workout…AM or PM?

Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! Oh my goose! 🙂 Can I say how much I have missed working out first thing in the morning?

With working out at night I am constantly thinking about when I am going to do it all day. workout-1Then something will come up and I push it off for a little longer, a little longer, a little longer. Then before I know it I am working out at 11 PM. UGH! My workout almost turns into a joke. I have NO energy! I’m not focused on it because ALL I am focused on is catching some ZZZZs. 😦

Pretty much I am going through the motion but only working out at about 60%!

This morning I decided if I had to get up at 3:30 to take my son to work that instead of going to sleep when I got home I was going to push play. Wild Goose Chase….ummm…again? I did this workoutone last night at 9:45 and I wasn’t impressed at all. I mean it was dancing and all but I really didn’t get sweaty and definitely wasn’t out of breath.
But this is what I had scheduled for today so I went with it! Wow what a flipping difference! I had sweat dripping off me. I had ENERGY! I had FUN! It was a completely different work out for me.

The difference? Night and day! lol Needless to say I will be making this change a permanent one. Do what makes you happy. Do what you have fun doing. Now I am celebrating a killer workout by having my favorite meal of the day….my cafe latte shakeology! I love that the TWO MOST IMPORTANT parts of my day are already checked off by 7 am.

Yup it’s gonna be a great day! ❤
