What the heck!? I start dancing and 4 min in I'm sweating like a pig. I once thought I would grow out of it....not the case. I was always that SWEATY kid at chuckie cheese that the parents looked at like...."glad that's not MY kidπŸ˜‚" ...How bout you!? Have you always been that kid?! Or do you really have to WORK FOR IT? #thesweatlifewithsarah#ownit

The Bloat

28056622_10101430743605712_6985008072892526862_n.jpg

You would think after being sick yesterday and only drinking half my shake and eating 1 apple (bc thats all I could keep down all day) this bloat would be gone. It's not. I'm SOOO ready to get back on track. πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜
...
I know it's only been a day but I took for granted the way I felt on the inside and the energy I had then I thought about how some people feel like this EVERYDAY. And that SUCKS. 
...
Trust me, there is a better way to live. Health is a choice and I'm getting back on my meal plan, drinking more water and starting my workout again today. Is it hard to make time to be healthy or is it hard to feel like crap?!?! We choose our hard and to me I'd much rather feel amazing. πŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ™‹Hands up if you agree!!!

Bleccccchhhh

When I repeat these affirmations daily then my mind starts to believe it as truth...trust me, it took time to BELIEVE in myself. But just like you can train the body you CAN re-train the brain. Our thoughts create actions which yeilds positive or negative results. 
..
Be thoughtful everyday and take out the negative. Recognize that negative voice and hush it by saying these statements instead. Try it now... and save this post so you can refer to it daily. You CAN achieve anything and it starts with the belief in yourself. Let's have an amazing week friends!!!πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’œ#2018goals#Bestyear

Vampire Workout

27858296_10101423211255602_3693408699508919056_n.jpg

Truth moment.....sometimes I don't want to do my workout 😰😰😰 I know, shocker..but for realz yo.....I only want to watch Vampire Diaries and Eat sweets.......so I compromise.
..
I set up the tabata timer for 1 Min work 10 second rest and do 10 moves from my Virtual Fit Club workout and aim for 5 sets. It seriously goes by so fast and I forget I'm working out. πŸ˜‚ So even on the days you aren't "feeling it" No worries.... play a movie or show and get a family member to commit to it with you! You totes won't regret it.
...
Btw...I'm already on Season 8...😭😭😭😭 I don't want it to end...so I'm thinking "The Originals" next πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ˆπŸ˜˜

Don't Wait

27655208_10101422026574712_1221380691898970474_n.jpg

I waited too long to take chances because I had already talked myself into believing how I would fail. I had a choice and each day I defended my excuses rather than fighting for my success. Are you in that stuck phase too??? For me I had to seek out HOW to get past this...
..
πŸ‘‰Success leaves clues and I learned from others. They were positive and consistent. 2 traits I knew I could improve on.
..
πŸ‘‰ I also stopped listening to the doubters and negative voices both external and internal.....byeeee haters 😘
..
πŸ‘‰ I accepted failure after failure as LEARNING Experiences rather than reasons for giving up. A few failed businesses means YES, I AM going in the right direction. πŸ’ͺπŸ˜‰
..
πŸ‘‰I learned that the quicker you go for it, the quicker you learn who you need to be in order to be successful. 
..
πŸ‘‰Becoming that successful person takes MANY trys. Just because it didnt work in the past doesnt mean it won't work NOW....
..
For example: We don't tell a baby..."oh tiny baby, you fell, so you will never learn to walk! Sorry kid, but you might as well stop trying. Just crawl through life, you don't have what it takes."...
..
Um yeaaaa, as ridiculous as that sounds it's EXACTLY what I had been telling MYSELF for years. βœ‹βœ‹βœ‹So stop already.βœ‹βœ‹βœ‹ I believe and KNOW both you and I can walk, run and sprint after a better, happier, healthier and more purpose filled driven life!!!!!! 
πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡
So how bout it!?!?! I challenge you, yes on a SATURDAYπŸ˜‰ To take ONE chance towards a better life. Over time those trys DO ADD UP. Let's make the REST of our life, the BEST of our life. If you need any help you know where to find meπŸ˜™πŸ˜šπŸ˜™ #2018GOALS #Bestyear #bestlifeever

8 Freaking Cookies

27857790_10155176865676835_2682635235725726089_n.jpg

So, real talk....Ive been taking pics of my healthy foods lately..bc I'm back from vacay and super on track!!! Riiigghhhtt!?!? ......πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ
..
WRONG.πŸ˜”πŸ˜œπŸ˜” I ate 8 of these last night!!!!!! FREAKING 8 COOKIES!!!! πŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™Š I can't be a hypocrite and show all the good here on my page....bc that's just annoying and unattainable And NOT the truth. So here's my truth pic. And was it worth it!? In the moment...yea... but now I'm feeling it today. I'm sluggish. Digestion is outta whack and I'm slacking on focusing to work. Soooo with that said this a good reminder to practice self control. And no, it doesn't come natural to me. I still have to work on it. OBVY. So if you have these slip ups time to time also don't get yourself down. We are ALL human. Just start fresh each day. We got this, right!?!???!? RIGHT. πŸ˜‰

If I CAN, then I WILL!!!

27540223_10101417407521332_6439689213679941327_n.jpg

If I CAN, then I WILL!!! βœŠβœŠβœŠI feel like that's the mentality you have to have in order to succeed. We all have so many chances to live our BEST life and all it takes is a clear goal, taking action, learning from our failures and being consistent. It sounds like a lot but once you make it a habit then its POSSIBLE!!!! 
...
Today starts my next Virtual Fit Club and I'm so excited to see this "I CAN & I WILL" mentality start to happen for my clients. Its not only a physical transformation but its also a mental and emotional one that happens. We focus on eating REAL FOOD and working out safely and effectively and it's working for us!!!!πŸ’ͺ😊πŸ₯‘πŸŽ If you also need help you know where to find me!!!! March group prep starts in 3 weeks!!!!! #Bestyear #2018goals#onlinecoach #virtualfitclub #virtualsweatsesh#virtualbootcamp

Creature of Habit

26815579_10155139832501835_1485914625035777637_n.jpg

I'm such a creature of habit...amd it wasn't until I saw results from my habits to realize THEY ARE IMPORTANT!!!! There's a few things that are keeping me SUPER CONSISTENT in my business and I wanted to share my tips.....BUT FIRST COFFEE...
β˜•πŸ˜β€
.
.
#1 TASTE IT....
Ha! Well really that IS my first tip. Whether you are a tea drinker. Coffee drinker or hot water with lemon kinda gal..seriously start with something you can taste. Get your tastebuds working. The more senses you use, the better.
.
.
# 2 SMELL IT......
Light a candle or I like to use a Do Terra Lemon grass essential oil one drop with some coconut oil. I put it in my neck and shoulders and it instantly relaxes and focuses my attention...it could be voodoo, but Ima keep doing it πŸ˜‰
.
.
#3 LISTEN UP.....
Listen to something inspiring. I'm on a Bryan Tracy Kick ever since listening to the audio book EAT THAT FROG (YouTube him). Seriously this will motivate you and get you in the right mindset.
.
.
#4 WRITE IT.....
Write down your goals for the day...EACH DAY. As you get one item done, , cross it off the list & move onto the next item!!! It feels SOOOOO GOOD to cross it off! It gives you momentum to do the next thing!
.
.
#5 VISUALIZE IT..... 
What will happen when you succeed EVERYDAY for 5 years!??? what does that life look like? Is it worth the effort? Remember that CONSISTENCY IS KEY....You need to do this daily other wise you won't see results. And also know NO ONE WILL DO THIS FOR YOU!!!!! YOUR Success will be because of you. YOUR failure will be because of you. You might as well try to live your best life! You only get one chance!!!!

Truth on the Outside

26907673_10155137159001835_2711611533965748682_n.jpg

What we say on the inside becomes our truth on the outside....πŸ™ŠπŸ™‰

I have found this to be more true everyday. A few years ago I would prepare myself for failure by saying negative things OVER AND OVER in my head... the term "I CAN'T, BECUASE..." became a daily affirmation. I also would make excuses over and over so when I failed I expected it and I wasn't as hurt when it happened. Seriously that way of life SUUUUCCCCKKKKSSSSS. I had built up my own walls and I CONSTANTLY blamed my lack of success on others. It's how I forgave myself for things not turning our right. Blame game sounds so petty but its true. I think we all do it.....

So how do we overcome it???

When I started speaking more positively of myself and my future daily I could see my life and my outlook was changing. I dreamed bigger than I thought was possible. I stopped blaming others. If I wanted REAL CHANGE then it was up to me for that to happen.....and guess what!? It worked!!!! 

I'm still overcoming that negative voice because of years of lies I told myself, but that's no-one fault. I'm owning it and bringing it to the surface. I'm punching it in the face and not hiding from a FULFILED PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE anymore!!!! If you are on that same struggle bus just know there's hope. I encourage you to take action RIGHT AWAY. What lies have you told yourself? Write them down and write down your new POSITIVE TRUTH...over and over again. Journal it. Speak it, pray about it and act on that new sense of self worth. EVERYDAY. β€β€β€

FELLOW FITNESS INSTRUCTORS/TRAINERS/FITNESS ENTHUSIASTS....yep.....I'm talking to YOU.......You keep working for other gyms, or your overhead of owning a studio is eating up your savings.😩 You are over worked & underpaid. I GET IT...... I know because I've been there. I've been doing fitness for 10 YEARS! A few years ago I finally decided to give the "Online" thing a go. I had my doubts and I did NOT want to become one of those people that "SPAM, SELL SPAM.....the crap out of their social media. Its social media! It's meant to be SOCIAL!!!!! But I still had hope that I could do it differently.....

πŸ‘‰ FIX MY HEALTH.....lets be real, I needed a cleaner diet.... I was still eating fruit loops...dont believe me!? Scroll my IG there's pics πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚....
....
So was I able to make all that happen!? Yes I was. I know what you are thinking. Some people might compare my Chapter 40 to their chapter 1...but DON'T. We ALL start somewhere and I want to help mentor that person who was juat like me. Burnt out but has a REALLY Big heart for helping others (including themselves). So there it is!!!!!!! πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜That's my truth and just like Oprah said to speak it more!!! (preach it hands) πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ....

Not on a Diet

26907363_10101397670963552_3137215084702872764_n.jpg

No, I'm not on a "diet" . I'm still going to eat my favs and yes that includes pasta or macaroni but here's a fit tip.... πŸ‘‰ put half your bowl or plate into a container for tomorrow, then top the other half on a full plate of greens (Spring mix, spinach or kale). Seriously you will save hundreds of calories and you will sneak more greens into your diet! And it tastes great. WIN.WIN.WIN. Try it!!!! πŸ˜‰
