Bride Body 35-Day Challenge WINNERS | Lifestyle Change Success

When it comes to discipline and following a nutrition and fitness plan, these ladies ‘take the cake!’ Actually, they leave the ‘cake’ behind as they focus on fueling their bodies with strategic nutrition in order to feel better, improve health markers, and even lose weight! I am so incredibly pleased with all those who participated in the Bride Body Challenge. The ladies that were in our GroupMe chat were so wonderfully supportive of each other. I loved seeing their meals, favorite ingredients, go-to snacks, and the little wins each day they would share to inspire each other! Not only did I reach my own personal goals with this 35-day Nutrition and Fitness program to feel wonderful and confident on my wedding day, but it was a JOY to watch so many of these ladies succeed as well!

Bride Body 35-Day Challenge: Day 3

DAY 3: WEDNESDAY of the Bride Body 35-day Challenge Program             (click here to order your own copy of this program!) Workout: I was so happy to get in my 2nd day of the program workout at the gym!! Nate even joined me for this one and we added on a fourth set to really bring the heat to this upper body day! I found myself alternating between goals for myself on each set to do either 20 reps faster (trying to do it in 20 seconds), or 10 reps slower like the program says with a 10 second rest in between. This is a variation of Tabatas (why we did four sets instead of three) to make a 1/2 Tabata sequence. Many people who have been coached in Fitness plans by me are very familiar with this lifting strategy. It’s a strategic way to take the...

Bride Body 35-Day Challenge: Day 2

DAY 2: TUESDAY of the Bride Body 35-day Challenge Program (click here to order your own copy of this program!) Workout: I didn’t get a chance to hit a workout, so counted my three hours of teaching dance as my workout. To be honest, while many people say ‘that counts as a workout,’ it’s a totally different feeling than TRAINING your body. Sure, I burned some energy, but my body ached at the end of the day. Due to my scoliosis, I don’t enjoy days like that where focused training time whether at the gym, in yoga, or home in bodyweight movements doesn’t happen. Eating Obstacles: It was a long hard afternoon and I had an hour in between appointments while on the road, so did as I always do: find a Starbucks to get some work done. I should have ordered an herbal mint tea (my typical go-to), but as...

Bride Body 35-Day Challenge: Day 1

DAY 1: MONDAY of the Bride Body 35-day Challenge Program (click here to order your own copy of this program!) Workout: I got to the gym around 3:45 and would prefer not to train this time of day again. I enjoy dancing this late in the day, but not training my muscles or doing sprints. Nonetheless, I made it. My total workout time was about 50 minutes since I took a bit longer stretch time than the 7-minute Stretch on the program. I added the Bosu Ball into my forward lunges and added multiple angles. My 3rd set turned into jumping squats up and over the Bosu ball which gave me a great quad burnout–the type where you need to sit down afterward so your legs don’t give out 🙂 On the 10-minute sprints, I wanted to be done at Minute 4. But I thought of everyone else doing this...
