So simple yet so powerful.
It’s a funny thing how some wish so badly to have better results, but spend the majority of time complaining, making excuses or living in denial.
The hard truth is, in order to get different results, you must be willing to DO something different every day.
In the coaching forums of ClubFYM, I explain to the FYMs that rather than fleeing the moment something feels uncomfortable or difficult to instead embrace this feeling with the understanding that change is taking place.
“If you focus on results you will never change…if you focus on change, you will get results”.
~ Jack Dickson
How true is that?
It takes true strength to reach this point , to let go of being at the “end result” and instead trusting in the process and enjoying the journey~ and when you do, that’s when the Amazing happens.
How about you ~ Are you up for it?
What changes are you focusing on at this point in your body shaping journey?
Your Friend and Coach,

As most of you know May is all about Strength at Fit Yummy Mummy, and more than anything in the world, I hope you are embracing it!
Strength can have very different meanings to different people, and we are all different, but even a better reason to embrace it. I believe that strength training is one of if not the most empowering type of training you can do.
When you have worked hard to get physically strong you have found strength in more ways than one. It isn’t easy to see strength increases, so when you do it means that you have been working hard, following a plan and sticking to it.

Confused about the newest FYM Gym Based Workouts for Moms?
This week I launched a new and unique workout resource for Fit Yummy Mummy’s call FYM in the GYM. Since the release, I’ve received dozens of questions since this is do different than what a typical FYM workout plan has to offer.
To help, I made two videos.
In this video I explain exactly what the FYM in the GYM workout program is all about. I then share why I created such a workout program – since many were left scratching their heads…wondering why I did this – and who this workout program is best suited for.
In this video I addresses the most common questions and concerns such as…
“How is this different from your other FYM workout programs?”
“Are these really only 15 minute workouts?”
“I don’t want DVDs. You can’t use these in the gym!”
“This looks like it’s only for those who lift heavy weights.”
“I’m confused by all the workout groupings…hip, knees, pulling – what does this mean?”
“I want a progressive workout plan with printable workout logs” (more…)

Pep Me Up Snack
There’s nothing like the refreshing scent of citrus to awaken the senses. It’s sunny, refreshing and energizing and because of its familiarity, also comforting and relaxing.
I picked up a big bag of Cuties (easy peel mandarin oranges) this week. Alexander pointed them out since they looked like a bag of balls he could play with. Cuties are the perfect snack for the boys – not only are they easy to peel, but also seedless and oh so very SWEET!

How A Busy Mom Gets Back On Track
I admit…I’ve had quite a time getting back on track and making progress on the goals I set out to achieve at the start of the New Year. With Spring just around the corner there is no better time than now for renewal and fresh starts.
Over the past several weeks my knack for procrastinating has impacted my productivity. Several important tasks have piled up to the point where I was feeling completely overwhelmed and just unsure of what I should do to get out from under this. (more…)
