Anyone else staying up late because that’s when your brain turns on!?!?! Yea, sames!!!! 😂💁🏽♀️ Well I'm FINALLY pooped..and sweaty, I spent the last 3 hours choreographing new songs for the cruise next week!!!! For those of ya going remind me to film them with ya!!!! eeeeeeee, #sostoked#6thannualdancefitnesscruise #karmavacations
1 Day to go!!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! Tomorrow the Go Getters, Go Get it. 😂😁😁🙌 But first I gotta get real with the "ALMOST THERE PEOPLE"......
Ya know, I talk to quite a few people, (well, it is my job💁🏽♀️ And I feel like I can finally say I know the SECRET to success! Just fyi it doesn't come from years of learning. I mean that's all well and good but TRUTHFULLY Success really comes from years of DOING. Because let's be real.....do ya think Successful people wait until they FEEL ready to take on a new Challenge???? Ummmm. nope. They take action RIGHT.AWAY. Sure they have doubts but the quicker they take action, the quicker they will fail and learn from their mistakes... the sooner they DO come back stronger, wiser and more successful. They are more conscientious of their mortality and act with a sense of urgency. They have more self awareness and gratefulness for the time they have left on this earth.
But sadly, MOST people fall into the ALMOST THERE...or the QUITTER category. They actually QUIT before they even COMMIT!!!!!
"I'll wait to get healthy after ....
"I'm not FIT enough to try that."
"I don't have the time to commit.."
"Not right now now because I don't have the confidence yet to succeed"...
"I don't have money to eat healthy, (but watch me get a new iPhone and eat out and drink every weekend...yea, I see your posts boo😂😉 and trust me, I was the same)...
So if ya REALLY want more outta life then ya gotta be honest with yourself. Because YES, you have the time, money, support team and a clear path for success when you get outta your own way!!!!!!!
I say all that because Listen babe, I'm here for ya.
If you are ready(and even if you aren't) consider our AMAZING Virtual Fit Club #transform2k19 to help you. Seriously, Ya think I would be this dedicated without a support team!?!?! No way, I show up EVEN on the days I don't want to because I DON'T want to let this SWEAT CREW down!!!!!!!! So reach out to any of us. We are here to help with workouts, meal plans, superfoods supplements and daily support. 💯👌🏼😘 #liveandloveyourlife#virtualbootcamp #virtualfitclub #healthylifestyle
FOOD LABELS....do you read them!?!? Yes? Or No or kinda?!?! I wanna know!!!!
Ya know the more I learn... the more I realize DON'T KNOW. 🤣 so that's why I've been educating myself on WHY a superfoods formula is ACTUALLY important to me. I looked up ASTRAGALUS ROOT because I had NO IDEA what it is or does. And I thought I'd share...because knowledge is power and I encourage ALL of my clients to read food labels...so duuhhhhhh, why don't I do it more often!?!?! 💁🏽♀️💁🏽♀️💁🏽♀️ so here ya go.....
WHAT'S IN MY SUPERFOODS!?!?! One of the ingredients is ASTRAGALUS ROOT
And here's why I appreciate that it's already in my shake....
#1 its an adaptogen. Which means it able to change its function depending on the needs of the body...its also an immunity enhancer. Which makes sense because I RARELY get sick...so thanks root!!! 😉👌🏼
#2 Also good for heart health and helps lower cholesterol levels. 👌🏼
#3 reduces stress...yea I'm pretty chill...unless I'm doing the laundry 😂👌🏼
#4 reduces sleep issues. 👌🏼mmmmmmm sleep 😴😴
#5 anti aging properties. 👌🏼 yes I'm 35. But I'm gonna try to pull off 25 for as long as I can. 😘 And drinking this super foods smoothie over the last 5 years has helped there's no doubt about that!!! I mean ya'll saw my BEFORE pic. Right!?!?!?
I asked Eddie over the new year in what way could I become a better wife, Coach, Instructor, Friend and person.....Because if there's one thing I want to become this year , it's BETTER. So his response was ..."realize you are already awesome."
I shot him down so fast when he told me that... with...."thanks but what can I ACTUALLY WORK ON.?!?!"
It's not really hitting me until now what he meant by that. Am I living for the future or in THIS MOMENT? Am I Truly appreciating what I've accomplished so far!? And MAYBE giving myself more credit is that missing piece for me???? I always thought recognition of yourself as a very conceited thing, but is it!?!??! If I wasn't me but a friend of mine, I would shout Sarah out quite a bit .... I would tell her she's freaking crushing it. I would tell her that her strength on the inside matches her strength on the outside and I am inspired by her. EVERYDAY. I would tell her I love her and despite her broken home and heartache she grew up in, she did not let the word VICTIM become her. Even on the days it's hard. She looks for the good in people. She loves them. She wants the best for them. She also makes the best PUPPY CHOW I've ever had. Yea.....when I think about it, I'm pretty blessed to know and also be Sarah.
I didn't mean for this post to be a love letter to my self. But hey, tbh it feels pretty good and I'd recommend for you to do it it too. Step outside yourself. Look at the love you bring to this world... Isn't that enough to love yourself back? I think it is. 💓💕💓 #mindsetreset #transform2k19
New mindset....who dis?! 💁🏽♀️ Remember your new life will cost you your old one. New habits to replace old ones. I'm still transforming daily and I know it takes work but replacing new and better ways is ALWAYS worth it. So take a look at the life you want. It won't happen over night but it WILL happen when you are consistent.
Think about the areas of your life that can improve and focus on one area at a time...starting with mindset. Here's a few tricks that have helped me along the way....
💁🏽♀️Audiobooks on personal development and growth on your way to work or first thing every morning
💁🏽♀️Hang out with New positive friends who uplift you rather than gossip.
💁🏽♀️A health plan with your fitness and nutrition to help set you up for success
💁🏽♀️Getting more sleep! Keep your phone out of your bedroom. It will help 👌🏼😉
💁🏽♀️Gratitude journal to remember what you have and not take it for granted
Never underestimate the power of a strong mind. You never have to hold yourself back again when you are mentally powerful!!!! Lets crush it!!!!#transform2k19
💕We may be little, but we are mighty💕
Love you Kayla Tatman 😍😘 Thanks for crushing the Chest and Back workout with me!!!!!! 3 more days to go before I finish this program.....for the second time!!!!! Holy wow y'all.
It seriously Feels good to have a plan and to stick with it. Sure I might be an instructor and teach my own Virtual and in person Fitness classes but for my OWN workouts I LOVE following a program. I don't have to think about anything else but my own body and form....
It takes me back to when I was a kid and loving Tae Bo and Denise Austin vids. I've heard people say they can't workout at home....and is it you physically CAN'T or you just WON'T!? 🤔 When you find you can fit FITNESS in anwhere ANYTIME, then it's EASIER to stick to your goals. So have a plan....and a back up plan 😉 Then there are less excuses to stop you. Make your environment suitable to achieve your goals and trust me, you are more likely to succeed 😉👌🏼 #nevermissamonday #virtualfitclub#virtualbootcamp #transform2k19 #mindsetreset#transformationweek #sweatwithsarah#thesweatlifewithsarah
If there's nothing in my house but veggies.....then I tend to eat my veggies ✊🏼 and if there were doritos I would eat them too....so that's why I just can't buy those "snacks". I know my weaknesses and self control is NOT one of my strengths 😂 I'm not saying you need to have self control to be healthy(again. I don't have it💁🏽♀️)....but what helps me is NOT buying the junk. And when you DO actually get hungry, yes you DO crave vegetables. 😉👌🏼#veggiesmost #day1 #diaryofmydetox #vegandetox#absaremadeinthekitchen #transform2k19
#bestdayever .....Dreaming of the beach from last years cruise (and 11 days until me and Candace 'Rose' Post leave for the one this year 😍
This pic brings me so much happiness (well come on, its the beach #nuffsaid , right💁🏽♀️) but this pic also represents my BEST life......I'm not saying its my BEST looking pic, but instead I realize I'm only there because my BEST self showed up to live my life and if she didn't, I wouldn't have had that experience or this picture taken or the friends that I have now 😍😭😍🙏🙏🙏.....
Let me take ya back about a decade....
I started sharing my passion for Zumba and choreography on YT about 10 years ago. Ya wanna know what sucks about YT!?!?! THE FRICKIN DISLIKE BUTTON!!!!! lol, too many times I would have more thumbs downs than thumbs up, like for reals people.... but something inside me said "KEEP GOING". and I went from shy, chewing gum not smiling on camera to...still awkward 🤣😋but not caring what others think....and ya know that's been the MOST FREEING part of this journey!!!!! I was able to meet so many people, have so many awesome experiences and live my BEST life because I did NOT let fear or failure or rejection get in my way. I'm not saying its easy, but I'm saying ITS.SO.WORTH.IT.
I hear from others who are scared or even confused on how to achieve goals...they might say to me "I want to be a size 6" or "I want to have a successful fitness business" and my answer to them would be to do 3 things.....
#1 Rate yourself 1-10 in these areas of your life.
👌🏼Your business or job
👌🏼Your happiness and hobbies
#2 List Why you had a rating low or high.
#3 Now write down if your BEST (#10) self showed up that day and HOW would they plan and ACT on their goals? What would they do to end the day, month and year at level 10????? Because that's how YOU must act. Sure you won't be motivated to be a 10 everyday but if you start ACTING THE PART, then trust me. You WILL get there. And it's a journey you guys. I'm not where I want to be. But I'm freaking thankful that I'm allowing my BEST SELF to show up more often than my MEAN GIRL. Lets make 2019 the BEST yet, shall we!!?!??!!#mindsetreset
I think Saturday workouts are now my Faaaaaavvvv....you might have heard me talk about this movement #transform2k19 and it's seriously CHANGING MY LIFE!!!! And I will tell you why and its because We are focused on a few things...

Alright ya'll. Its time to upgrade our self talk going forward because if we continue to beleive lies, then NOTHING CHANGES.
Here's my list that you WILL NEVER hear me say again. And if ya do. I will buy ya a coffee 😁
"I'm not good at this, sorry if it's not the best."
"I'm a slow learner."
"I'm not motivated enough."
"I'm not good at organization."
"I don't think I can hit that goal in my business."
Ya hear that!?!!? All that negative self talk!?!!?? Gross right!?!!?😰😰😰 I know I'm not the only one that struggles with this so I'm saying NEW TRUTHS to myself daily to change my thoughts, which in turn change my actions which also leads to a better mindset and better results!!!!
So, I challenge you to say it too......
"I'm a great wife, sister friend, fitness instructor and Coach and I am becoming better everyday!!!!!"
"I'm a FAST learner and have learned so much over the last few years and I'm excited to take on more challenges!!!!"
"I'm NOT sorry for being who I am. I was created to become GREAT. So lets go!!!!"
I'm a pro at organization and becoming better everyday and I improve daily by working from a list."
"I hit EVERY goal in my business because I show up to do my best and my best is always ENOUGH."
Alright, those are my new truths. I would love to hear one of your NEW truths below!!!!! Lets support eachother EVEN MORE in 2019!!!!!!!#transform2k19 #mindsetreset #transformationweek
Wanna know HOW to stay consistent to your goals!?!?! Take ridic selfies errrrrday and share with the world 🤣✊🏼 No but seriously hear me out...... IT WORKS, Because HOW MANY TIMES do we say to ourselves..."THIS IS MY YEAR TO.....(you fill in the blank)".... then we tell no one or only 1 or 2 people (who also fall off the...) and then 365 days later we make the SAME goal!?!?!?! Ummmmm somethings gotta change. And that something is YOU telling SOMEONE what your goals are and Finding accountability to crush this not just in Jan, but in April July Oct... but all the months forever and ever(yes, rest days and treats and carbs encouraged tho...I aint cray people) 😋🦄
Yea ok, where do ya find this free support!?!?!?!
Well. guess what?!?!?!💁🏽♀️💁🏽♀️Us Coaches are here to say "TELL US YOUR GOALS, AND WE WILL HELP YA REACH EM !!!! We are a fit fam and We've got a FRICKIN FANTASTICAL FREE(PRIVATE) SUPPORT GROUP AND WE ARE HITTING GOALS ALREADY!!!!!! SEE below to see what this MOVEMENT is all about!!!!! We rocking it and changing lives allllllllll over the place!!!!!!! AND YES. YOU. ARE. INVITED. 😘😘😘
YOUR JOURNEY BEGINS HERE 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
OBSESSED ABOUT OUR HEALTH - (new name- TRANSFORM2K19
*DON'T FORGET TO MENTION THE COACH THAT INVITED YOU WHEN YA JOIN*
Hair up & Handle it!!!!!!💪😁
Always remember to look back ONLY to see what DIDN'T work for you. No blaming, no being upset about things that did or didn't happen for you. Instead lets get a HANDLE ON IT and NOT repeat the past!!!! If something doesn't work....do something about it!!!! An awesome life doesn't just happen, you have to be ....
So ask yourself.... Am I being PRESENT in this moment or distracted?
Am I PASSIONATE in what I want for my life and is my BEST self showing up to it or am I not planning for success in the areas I want to improve on??? And third, Am I living a PURPOSEFUL & driven life by loving myself and others or am I complaining about my circumstances and the people that frustrate me?!?!?!
Only YOU can answer these questions, but trust me, When you live in your truth you will know it by the love you have for yourself and others. Time will pass regardless so if you want to be happy, healthy and successful ya gotta get some clarity on how.
Now go do some good! 2019 has only BEGUN!!!!#transform2k19 #mindsetreset #mindsetreset
LAST WORKOUT OF 2018 DONE!!!!!!! Ya ready to go into 2019!?!?!?? For New Years Goals, don't make a resolution. Make a LIFESTYLE Change. Life is like being on an escalator, you have to keep trying, learning and growing...otherwise you hit the bottom and have to start all over again..and again...and again. So with this in mind going forward...
#1 Understand that past "failures" have NOT determined your future. Let go and forgive yourself. The only way to move forward is to truly love and forgive yourself and others. No one is perfect. And that's not the goal here. Healthier and happier and more loving towards ourself and others.....That's our goal. 💟
#2 Find an accountability buddy or group and check in.✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼 And remember on days you feel great > workout, eat 85% clean and practice self care & gratitude. On days you don't feel great > workout (Unless you are throwing up, then go to the doc) eat 85% clean and practice self care and gratitude.
You won't FEEL like hitting your goals 3 months from now. 70% of people will quit. If you don't want that to be you then you have to tell that negative voice.." I AM IN CHARGE OF MY LIFE AND I CHOOSE TO SHOW UP FOR ME. " I have faith that you CAN DO THIS!!! And if you need my help, you know where to find me 😘👌🏼#letsgo2019 #readytokickbutt#healthyandhappy
Thanks for another INCREDIBLE year friends...Yep, I'm all about reflecting today....🦄🙏 2018 I said I would create my own Joy and be more present. Looking back on this year I can say I came pretty close(well not all the time, but hey, nobody's perfect) ....I didn't put expectations on others like I did in years past and I didn't place all my happiness in future places and goals not yet met. Instead, I put my happiness in the HERE and NOW and I want to continue on this journey into 2019. Like I said about a week ago I picked the word "TRANSFORM" as my 2019 theme & I have YOU ALL to thank for this.
I wouldn't be where I am today without the beautiful loving, giving and supportive people that I'm blessed to know. So this is a huge thanks to my friends who have encouraged me to continue to grow and transform. So thanks guys. 😍😭😍The people from the Virtual Fit Clubs, Support groups, Zumba & Pound classes, Coach retreats & Conventions are all who lifted me up on days I felt down. You all continued to cheer me on. I know my job is to uplift others but it's YOU ALL Who make me want to do better. Each and every one of you have inspired me more than you could know. I know I'm blessed far more than I deserve and I will do my best to become a better friend, wife, fitness instructor & Coach. Love you guys. Happy New Year. 🎉🎉🎉
Its ok to have a freak out. Just don't quit!!!!!!!
I was talking to a friend about working any business (this also relates to health too) and the path to success is ALL the same. There must be an understanding of how important it is to show up and prove what you do or what you use WORKS. And it also got me thinking ...how many times do we see someone QUIT one thing to quickly go to another....then another...then another!?!?! Ya'll gotta commit to see success. I just wanna hug that person and say.....
YOU WILL NEVER BE HAPPY UNTIL YOU FIND HAPPINESS FIRST IN YOURSELF!!!!!! YOU MUST LOVE YOURSELF ENOUGH TO NOT QUIT!!!!!!
Because that newness in any business (or new health fix) is always there at the beginning. But what about greener pastures over there....🤔😐🙄😏 Or promises of better this...better that. I felt that way, sure...MANY A TIME, I felt pulled this way or that way, but then I realized it's not that what I do doesn't work as well, Its because I wasn't ALL IN. I didn't TRUST and BELIEVE in myself or Fully TRUST and BELIEVE in what I offered. I had to stop daydreaming about the WHAT IFS. And stop envying what I didn't have. And I found what I needed. It was always there. It was a Trust and Belief in MYSELF that I was enough. That I offered enough. That my company offered enough.....um MORE than enough. I HAD TO TRUST THE PROCESS. "DIG DEEP" as Shaun would say. All this to say YES, I'm still here and I'm not going anywhere. What I do works and it is working for so many others physically emotionally mentally and financially. I love being a Coach and Fitness instructor. I do it because I have faith in myself and I have faith in others to be successful also.
If you decide to build a business and/or start on a new healthy path then.... GO FOR IT. BE ALL IN. But don't go into with a part time mindset expecting a full time income and a 6pack. 😂 Always remember anything worth having takes time, work, and learning more about becoming the BEST version of YOU. #neverstopgrowing#trusttheprocess
"I wished I had the COURAGE to live a life true to myself and not live the life others expected of me."
Today I heard that quote and cried because I know that quote all too well. Years ago I was afraid of what others would think. I had a fear of judgement and fear I'm not good enough and not worthy of great things. I'm a slow learner. I'm not focused. I'm not organized. I'm not good enough......you get the idea. All negative. All the time. Also judgy. Like REALLLY JUDGY. 😭How was a girl who believes all THAT able to become strong enough to change her mindset and change her future?
It's a choice. A choice to believe truth rather than lies. The truth is we are ALL worthy. If we were truly made in God's image then how the heck can we act like we aren't good enough!?!?!? Because we are. We ALL are.
I slowly came to realize that and I started a list of the choices I have made that brought me happiness and gratefulness and a life without regret. BUT ya know this life now was NOT the "safe" or "comfortable" route because all of these choices I made ALWAYS had fear by it's side.I had to face many fears to get where I am. But I can tell you its worth it. I've made a few new lists of even bigger goals for next year... does it scare me!?!? Heck yea, but I would be a hypocrite of I didn't face them.
I encourage you to do the same. What are your BIG goals for next year!? What new mindset do you need to accomplish it and what will you let go before entering the next chapter. Because we cannot go far with a weight of regret around our neck. Move forward. Transform and LIVE. Don't look at the glass half empty...or half full. Be thankful for the glass!!!! That glass is your life. Fill it with love, chances, opportunity and gratefulness!!! We are either the author of our story or the victim and the choices we make everyday will support a life a reward or a life if regret. Be courageous friend. #wegotthis ✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼
#maithekitty 's face pretty much sums up how I feel about going to bed at night.
I'm not tired and I know I’ve heard it a thousand times....."achievers get up early.." But in all seriousness are there people out there that are motivated night owls!?!?! I seem to feel in this rut whenever I read all these self help books and they ALLLLLLLL say you should be getting up at 6am and "YOUR LIFE WILL DRAMATICALLY CHANGE IF YOU GET UP EARLIER....EVERYDAY".....
listen ya'll, I think my life HAS DRAMATICALLY changed these last few years...and it's because I DO get more rest now and I also get MORE work done!!!! But I'm STILL not going to bed till Voldemort goes to bed....So what of it!?!?! 💁🏽♀️💁🏽♀️💁🏽♀️I also don't eat breakfast!! ✊🏼😏 so there's that too.....
Just comment and let me know if there is a high achiever crushing it with me at midnight. Where's my rebels at!?!?!?!? Or if you WERE a Night owl and you are NOW on the other side of it and swear by crushing it early now. Is it worth it!?!? I want to know!!!! . Tia. 😘😘😘 #notheonlyone #ihope#rebelforever #sleepingin
Its so crazy that some of my closest besties and I FIRST met through social media. I love these platforms for that fact that I can connect with so many inspiring people from all over the world. 😍😭😍 and this mug I just got from one of them.
Sarah Beth Pergrossi I love my new mug!!!! Thank you so so much. And YOU my dear definitely make a difference in MY world!!! I'm a better Coach because of your inspiration!!!!! Once we teamed up running groups I knew we would be unstoppable!!!! Your energy and positive posts is what inspires me EVERYDAY. Thank you for your friendship. I love ya girl!!!! 💕💕💕
I realize that now looking back on the chances I didn't take, I was scared. I had Fear of judgement. I also ALWAYS compared my journey to others. "I'm not as pretty." "I'm not as smart.".." I'm now too old"
...... I actually remember at the age of 12 I went to my friends dance recital and thought...I would LOVE to dance like her....but she started at 3...so it's too late for me." YES, I ACTUALLY THOUGHT THAT!!!!! Then at the age of 24 I took my FIRST Zumba class which was also my Zumba Training! That's when I realized I COULD express myself through music and movement and age does NOT matter!!!! If I would have let fear take over I would have never went to that training. I would have never met so many of my best friends and I KNOW there would be something missing from my life.
If we aren't constantly being challenged then we will have a sense of incompleteness. So take the next leap. Trust your gut. Punch fear in the face because your BEST life does NOT live in hiding. Your BEST life is lived in the moments that make you excited and nervous at the same time.
Take my advice and go after it. RUN AFTER IT. You are never too old. You are smart enough. You are pretty enough. And you deserve to find out what your BEST LIFE IS. ✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼
