No more half-assery. Make yourself proud.

Missed opportunities due to slackitude. Excessive half-assery in abundance. Hesitation to go forth and conquer because of paralyzing fear. We’ve all experienced these things. But how about you break free from that craziness once and for all? It’s time to make yourself proud.

proud No more half assery. Make yourself proud.

It’s easy to be proud of a loved one (especially children) when they do something awesome. But when is that last time you were proud of YOURSELF?

GREEDY BABY gunz No more half assery. Make yourself proud.

Don’t miss out on this. Break ground on your goals and stake your claim. Do the inconvenient things that lead to success and experience the euphoria of making yourself proud. It’s a helluva feeling.

Shout out in the comments and let everyone know why you’re proud. Let’s hear it!

Click here for all the juicy Fit Holiday details and take the pledge. You’re invited to participate! fit holiday week 2 Fit Holiday Week 2: Winter Caribbean Vacation

THE SCENARIO: Remember last week’s party plane that dumped you at the North Pole 300 miles off course? Welp, that plane is supposed take you to the Caribbean now, but it’s stuck in a snow drift. If you want to get to your next destination of fun in the sun, you have to find a way to get this dang plane onto the runway.

Here is your Fit Holiday Week #2 Mission: Push the plane out of the snow drift and onto the runway. We all know pushing a plane is a full body workout, and the legs have a lot to do with it. Since your legs are connected to your butt checks, this week’s mission is a double-duo (legs & booty) to help get you beach-ready for your Caribbean destination.

*Scroll down to see video for deadlift exercise demonstration. Use barbell, dumbbells or kettlebell.

  • Monday: 10 reps one-legged split squats on each side
  • Tuesday: 10 reps weighted deadlifts* + 15 narrow squats
  • Wednesday: 10 reps 180-degree jump squats
  • Thursday: 20 alternating front kicks ~ slow & controlled
  • Friday: 10 side kick-through burpees

You did it! You’re ready for the Caribbean, baby!

Newsflash Friday: Belly Fat, the End of Boring Oatmeal, Butt Implants and a Flat Abs Trick

I’ve got oodles of thangs to share with you! Newsflash Friday seems like the perfect way to lay it on your eyeballs. Let me know if you like and I’ll keep these coming. Enjoy your weekend, friends!

The Reasons You’re Not Losing Belly Fat

Does Health.com hold the mystical keys with 11 Reasons You’re Not Losing Belly Fat? There’s truth to each of these reasons, even if all of them don’t apply specifically to you. Are you having trouble shedding your midsection? Body transformation is not found in the land of excuses. Be honest with yourself and see if any of these 11 reasons apply to YOU.

Work Hard. Transform Your Body in 12 Weeks. Win Mega Cash

before after Newsflash Friday: Belly Fat, the End of Boring Oatmeal, Butt Implants and a Flat Abs TrickBodyBuilding.com is hosting their annual body transformation challenging. One male and one female will each win $80,000 in cold hard cash. There will also be a People’s Choice winner that will rake in $40,000. The stakes are high. My love for pie slices ain’t enough to keep me away from crushing this challenge. It all begins on January 12, 2015 and concludes on April 5, 2015. Even if you don’t think you can win (but seriously, you can win), this 12-week challenge will do wonders to help keep you accountable to your goals. I joined last years challenge to stay accountable (while using Intermittent Fasting) and was pleased with my results. Go sign up! And if you’re curious, here’s my Bodyspace profile.

Ahhhh! Boring Oatmeal Just Got a Makeover

This maple vanilla oatmeal from Evan at The Wannabe Chef sounds so dang good. I’m loving the vanilla extract and salt ingredients. It’s definitely a refreshing take. I’ve never had my oatmeal like that before. How ’bout you? Go check out Evan’s recipe and try it for yourself.

Butt Implants Gone Wrong

butt implants uncensored Newsflash Friday: Belly Fat, the End of Boring Oatmeal, Butt Implants and a Flat Abs TrickNope, you may not want to artificially plump up your butt (do it naturally with squats, for goodness sake!!). But this picture of the aftermath of booty implants gone wrong will make you appreciate the body you have just the way you are — flaws & all. The full image was too graphic to plaster all over this page, but if you click on the picture it will take you to the uncensored photo. It’s not my place to judge people who have elective surgery to alter their bodies. My only problem is when they call on hack-job doctors out of desperation to get the job done.

 

Flat Abs Trick to Get More Veggies in Your Office Lunchbox

Don’t stress if you run out of time and can’t cook your veggies for toting to your job. Instead, pack raw broccoli in a Ziploc bag. Once you’re at work it takes less than 3 minutes to cook it in the microwave. Just add a small amount of water to your bowl and cover with a paper towel before steaming for 2-3 minutes. You’ll be gnawing on a bowl of flat abs in no time.
