Friday Check-in

DEEEEEEP breath…

(that was me taking a deep breath)

The past 3 weeks have been a whirlwind…

Here’s what’s gone down:

  • Our community blog has gotten a complete re-design (with lots of under the hood updates/improvements),
  • We have a brand new logo (what do you think?),
  • I created this new success guide for you here,
  • We have a TREK2BEFIT fitness challenge starting in less than 2 weeks…

AND, there’s lots and lots of other stuff I’ve been working on behind the scenes.

AND…there’s a million and one other things I need to do.

It seems like there’s just soooooo much to do, and I want it all done…

…like yesterday.

Ever feel that way?

So I wanted to take a break from the craziness and do a check-in with you to share with you what’s happening with my own fitness journey…

…then I want to hear from you, and hear how your journey is going.

I figured sharing the good, the bad, and the ugly on my own personal fitness journey would hopefully help you on yours.

Sound good?

Ok, let’s get to it…


I did my workouts (for the most part).

Right now I’m doing this program.

I’ve been doing that program now for almost FOUR years (since about July 2012)…which is insane to think about.

But I really enjoy it.

I’ve of course had my up’s and down’s over the past 4 years, but it’s one of my all time favorite workouts.

I’ve committed to doing a NEW workout program with our Challenge group peeps.

As I mentioned, I’ve done this program for almost 4 years now, so I’m super duper excited that I’ll be doing a BRAND NEW workout starting Monday, May 30th with our private TREK2BEFIT Fitness Challengers.

As excited as I am, I’m also really nervous.

Because I’m about to start a new program I’ve never done. And I’ve gotten very comfortable with my current workout/routine.

But that’s even more the reason why I need to do something different.

I’ve been consistent with my daily supplement regimen.

Taking the right supplements is one of the easiest things you can do to fast track your success, to give your body the nutrients it needs to build muscle, burn fat, and to have just good overall health.

So there’s not much else to say as far as that goes! I’ve been takin’ my supplements like I should.

I took my very first after-workout fitness selfie of 2016.

Here it is:


I’m a little rusty at selfies as you can tell…

And I probably need to work on my selfie pose. :-)


Need to do better with my nutrition.

Honestly, I’ve gotten lazy with my nutrition.

I know I’m eating too much of the wrong foods (especially in the evenings), and I just haven’t been on point like I need to be.

Luckily, I’ve been sticking with my workouts, and eating pretty good most of the time, which has helped combat any major weight gain.

BUT, I know I can do better.

I need to start doing abs again!

For the past several weeks (this is embarrassing to admit), I’ve been skipping my ab workouts.


I’ve just been making excuses. I’ll finish my workout, and then tell myself…

“There’s too much other stuff to do. I’ll do abs later…”

Then later never comes.

So this upcoming week…when abs is on the schedule, I’M DOING IT!


There you go. That’s my update…
