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.

Far From Perfect

My journey has been far from perfect. I tried just about every diet known and might lose a few pounds but then I gained it back. It has been quite an emotional roller coaster.

My heaviest weight was 235+, why the plus? Because I was so heavy that I stopped weighing myself but I know that I still had to buy clothes in a bigger size. The 235 was the last time I weighed myself. ūüė¶

During the last 7 years I have gone from 235+ to 140. It wasn’t a matter of not knowing that I was eating the wrong food and I knew that I had to workout BUT I just couldn’t keep it off. I was a fat skinny gal. I would lose the weight BUT I did not change my way of thinking. Which of course made it the perfect opportunity for the weight to creep back on and I ALWAYS gained back everything I lost plus more.journey

And now I am happy to share that things are going in the direction that I want…finally. I have gained control over my emotional eating. I no longer take laxatives or make myself sick to lose weight. I also don’t bike 20 + miles, hours on a bike to lose a few ounces.

What’s changed? The way I think, the amount of healthy food I eat AND what I am doing for workouts. My workouts are no longer than 40 minutes tops. Mostly they are right around 30 minutes.

So if you ask me WHY I became a Beachbody coach this is a prime example. My roller coaster ride is over, my mindset has changed and now I know how to lose the weight, tone up AND keep it off. My life has definitely changed and I love to share my journey with others. Even those photos that used to be hidden away. Now I love to show them because they show how far I have come.

I have an accountability group starting on January 30th and I have a few spots left open. Comment below if you are ready to fill a spot and get your own journey started.

Thankfulness Instead of Negativity

I am trying to get rid of the negative energy that has been surrounding me this past month.  I figured that the best way to do that is to share something that I am thankful for.  Of course I am thankful for my daughter, but this post is about SO much more than that!thankful

I am thankful to Carl Daikeler and Beachbody today.  You have absolutely NO idea why and that is ok.  Let me explain.  Being a Beachbody coach is about changing lives right?  RIGHT!  I work with others on their physical transformations BUT there is a lot more to it than just the physical side.  We also work on mental transformations.  Changing how you feel about things, what you focus on.  Thankfully this is not just for my clients BUT for myself as well.

Beachbody has given Kaitlyn and me something to share besides being related. ¬†We are BOTH coaches! ‚̧ ¬†Last year I was blessed that Kait and I were able to go to our FIRST Coach Summit in Nashville and we had an amazing time. ¬†We were able to meet other coaches from our team, who have become closer than some family members. ¬† I am having a great time bonding with her over something that I am very passionate about. ¬†‚̧ ‚̧ ‚̧

In 2016,once again, Kait and I  met in Nashville for ANOTHER coach summit and I was so excited!    We will worked out with Autumn Calabrese AGAIN and met up with a lot of other coaches!  It was such an amazing time.  I love being surrounded by all of the love and positive vibes from the other coaches.

Anyhow, long story trying to be short, thank you Beachbody and Carl  for not only giving me an outlet to help other women achieve their goals BUT for also giving me the opportunity to see my beautiful daughter and achieve my own goals.  This is our yearly visit and I just wanted to say thank you for making it happen.

I am so excited that this July we will be going to New Orleans!  I have never been there and it is going to be absolutely amazing.

Thank you so much for the support and your interest in this blog!¬† If you haven’t already, please make sure to check out¬†Darlene Caron Fitness¬†where you can find more recipes, fitness tips, motivation and information on upcoming health and fitness challenge groups that I offer.

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. ūüôā

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

Here are my weight and measurements from when I started on December 26  and what they are now.

  • Weight ¬† ¬† then…190, now…185.4
  • Left Bicep ¬† then…12.5, now…11.5
  • Right Bicep ¬† then…12.5, now 11.25
  • Chest ¬† then…41.5, now 40
  • Waist ¬† ¬†then…40, now 38

Put On Your Oxygen Mask First

There have been many times that I have traveled with my children when they were younger. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard the flight attendant go over the safety procedures and say make sure to put on your oxygen mask first. As a parent I have thought but what about my child?
Put on your oxygen mask first.
oxygen-mask
This applies to other parts of our lives too. How many times have I agreed to help someone else, to add to my already busy day? Taking care of my parents, my children, my husband, my friends, putting in extra hours at work because of being short handed, putting in hours to help people that I have never met. Adding to my busy day.
The last person I help is myself, taking time for me, reading books to help me grow as a person, working out, eating healthy, getting enough sleep.
Put on you oxygen mask first.
If I don’t take care of me first then I can get sick and exhausted then how am I going to take care of others?
It is time to make me a priority. It is time to put on my oxygen mask first. It is time to focus on me and my journey.
Then I can help others. ūüôā
Are you looking for accountability, support and guidance to build routines to get results?
This is not a quick fix. This is all about building habits that will help you make the changes you want for life.
If you are looking for customized fitness and nutrition plans with me as your Beachbody Coach, then join my 30 day health and fitness challenge. I can hook you up with the All Access Beachbody On Demand, Country Heat, 21 Day Fix, Hammer and Chisel, Core De Force and tons of other programs.

Happiness Is The Key

This year has been extremely shaky for me. I was letting other people tell me what I should and shouldn’t do to make me happy. I let them decide how I should proceed with my business to the point where it was taking the fun and happiness out of coaching.

People that I trust and love tried to tell me that coaching wasn’t for me, that Beachbody is a scam and that I should just give up and quit being a coach altogether. For a moment or two I will admit to thinking that maybe they were right.

Yesterday I went to the Maine Super Saturday with a fellow coach. When I first got there I was annoyed and wasn’t sure if I wanted to stay. I was struggling with feeling like a failure. I have been doing some searching within myself trying to figure out if it is worth it to continue with this. I have tried so hard to help so many but why did I feel like such a failure at this?

I was talking to a fellow coach and he gave me some very wise advice and I am so thankful. It gave me a lot to think about last night that’s for sure. Thank you Ryan Crocker. You were just what I needed yesterday and I appreciate your kind words.

I decided that he was right about a lot of things. I need to STOP letting other people take the happiness that I have found from being a Beachbody Coach away from me. I need to be in charge of my own happiness. Being a coach and helping other people with their journeys is exciting to me. I love meeting new people. I love going to events like Super Saturday and in July the Coach Summit in New Orleans.

BUT…one of the things I love MOST about being a coach is that I finally feel like I belong! The coaches that I talk with don’t judge me. They don’t call me a failure. They don’t tell me to quit. They give me support and inspiration to keep going.

This year is going to be about me. I am going to focus on my journey and see where it takes me. I am not going to focus on numbers or the different ranks in coaching. And if I am able to help others along the way, well all the better!

Success is NOT the key to happiness,
HAPPINESS is the key to success!

Sending strength, hope and love.

Beachbody On Demand – For Those Who Want It All

If you looked at my music collection today, you would see anything from 80s rock, pop, country to classical. ¬†Yes, I like all types. That’s what makes MY world move.

I am like that with other things too. ¬†I like all kinds of books, I like all kinds of movies. ¬†I am very eclectic in my tastes. ¬†Don’t believe me? ¬†Check out my house, or the clothes I wear.

It all depends on the mood that I am in.
Well, I am no different in my workouts. Some days I need Chalene to tell me that I’m not tired and to keep moving. Then there are days when Autumn telling me that I can do anything for a minute is exactly what I need to hear. ¬†Believe it or not, some times I need a corny joke from Tony to get me moving.

Can you relate?

That is why I am so excited about Beachbody On Demand. ¬†Not sure what that is? ¬†What about netflix? ¬†I’m sure you have heard of that. Well On Demand is like that! ¬†You get unlimited access to stream some of Beachbody’s popular workouts. And…ALL of the program guides, nutrition guides and calendars are included. ¬†How great is that?

I have done workouts from Country Heat, 21 Day Fix, Core De Force, P90X3, PiYo, Brazil Butt Lift and then I even tried Tai Cheng.  For someone like me, who likes a variety, this is an awesome solution.

I NEVER have to worry about buying another program that collects dust on my bookshelf.

I NEVER have to worry about finding the dvd and hoping that it isn’t too scratched.

I NEVER have to worry about starting that workout and realizing that I just can’t stand the trainer’s voice.

On Demand was MADE for people just like ME! ¬†And the great thing is right now Beachbody has the Annual All Access which gives you access to ¬†EVERY Beachbody program, the FIXATE cooking show and ANY programs that are released in the next year. ¬†This offer isn’t going to last, and I will be making sure to take advantage of it , what about you?aabodbanner

If you have any questions or would like to know more, send me a message. ¬†Let’s talk about how we can make some major changes in our lives in 2017!

Sending strength, hope and love.
