Last day of our trip, last LIVE workout with the Super Trainers and all the coaches, last beach day and my cup is filled.
3 1/2 years ago I judged the shit out of these people in this room, I hated the selfies, I hated the shake people, and I thought people who worked out for fun were fucking crazy. ....I was also 250 pounds at that time, extremely depressed, fearful of social situations because of how much I hated myself, and poured so much into my family that I left NOTHING for myself.
When I joined as a Beachbody Coach, I got a lot of: 👉“wow, you’re doing THAT thing?!” 👉“Oh man, you’re turning into THAT person?!” 👉“Damn... You’ve changed!” I used to care when people said these things to me, but let it be known, I give no shits anymore.
Truth is THIS:
I HAVE changed because of this community... IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE!!!!!! I now LOVE myself exactly as I am whether I have cellulite on my ass, whether I am 30 pounds overweight, or whether my arm flab flaps in the wind. I can NOW take a picture of myself and not focus on anything else but how much I love my smile!!! And the best part is I can now raise my babies to do the same without caring what society tells them they SHOULD look like.
Judge me if you must for my selfies and my workout videos, for my invitations to better your lives, or for the community I belong to, but dammit if all this hasn’t made me the best person I’ve ever been inside AND out.
But y’all... don’t knock it till you try it. I didn’t believe before and I was that negative Nancy. But joining one of these groups 3 1/2 years ago opened a door I didn’t even know existed and I’m grateful for my friend who had the balls to invite me despite my attitude, despite my judgement of her.
I invite YOU to join me because I know this can do the same for you. I mean, WHY NOT try?! WHY NOT give it a chance?! The worst thing that could happen is you stay the exact same, but the best thing is that your life improves greatly as a result too!! Isn’t it time you took a chance on loving yourself????
Okay, guys.... I showed you my hubby’s results from #80dayobsession so it’s only fair for me to show you mine as well so here goes!!
I can’t begin to describe how much this program changed things for me since January. From being incredibly depressed from all we had been through in 2017 to being in a horrible downward spiral with my nutrition, it couldn’t have come at a more perfect time!! I lost a total of 20 pounds (inches to be determined after Mexico) and even better, I feel amazing! .
I am having a blast letting loose and relaxing here in Mexico but I can’t wait to get home and to start another round of this program on the 23rd and really see what kind of results I can get next. .
Cheers to facing some pretty horrific struggles and still overcoming them!! You better believe I’m not giving up now!! 🤗 @autumncalabrese @carldaikeler
Okay, guys... I am SUPER EXCITED to share my hubby’s #80dayobsession results with you guys!!! Just because Neal is way less open about his journey,l doesn’t mean he hasn’t been doing this 💯with me and this is proof!! I can’t tell you HOW PROUD I truly am of Neal!! From being so close to losing his life last year with his aortic aneurysm to recovering from open heart surgery to going back to full time police work, he made a commitment to his health and fitness this year and done an AHMAZING JOB with losing over 41 pounds and 25 inches!!!!! If you know my husband, you know he loooooves himself some food so doing this with me was a BIG commitment and took a ton of discipline!!! Yes, we were tempted and yes it was challenging at times but his HEALTH IS MORE IMPORTANT!!! Babe, I am SO proud of you!!! You know I LOVE my challengers with all my heart, but you, my love, are my most favorite one!! ♥️ Here’s to an amazing trip to Mexico and then back on track with another round starting April 23!!! 🤗 @autumncalabrese @carldaikeler
Largest LIVE group workout yet this morning to finish our #80dayobsession program strong!!!! I am SO proud of these beautiful, phenomenal, incredible, AMAZINGLY STRONG women!!!!!! I don’t care what I have to do, but I will NOT stop my mission to inspire MORE women to love themselves enough to take care of themselves. This is so much more than a number on the scale or the size of your pants or the bikini you want to wear this summer.... this is about living your BEST LIFE NOW exactly as you are!!! These women are proof that you can do anything you put your mind to and I am such an emotional, ridiculously proud coach to shout them out!!!! Love you, ladies!!!! ♥️😘🤗
We may be done with this round, but the journey is never over!! We are going again April 23!! Who’s joining us?!
Not only do I love to dance while I work out, I love to SING too!! Turn on your sound if you wanna hear my own special concert this morning! 🤣🤣
Oh, and btw... today is the last day to join my next round of 80 days AND get a free goodie bag/preview of my new DreamFIT product launch!! Link in bio!! 😘
This guy has balance down. 😝😝
Couple takeaways from this.
Some humor. Some wisdom. 🤷🏼♀️
1. If I want dessert, ain’t no shame in eating it as my meal sometimes. 🤣🤣
2. If he had eaten a more balanced, satisfying lunch, maybe he would have stopped after the first dozen Reese’s. 🤣🤣
3. On a serious note, “saving up” my calories almost always backfired. I’d usually end up bingeing, usually at night, and usually wake up feeling shitty the next day. And when I felt shitty, it was even harder to treat myself with care, usually perpetuating the cycle. ⭐️When I stopped skimping during the day, my nighttime eating became far less out of control.⭐️
Hope this either made you laugh or helped you! Double tap if so!
👉 REAL TALK: It’s not about whether or not you CAN do it, it’s about whether or not you WILL! 👈
When I started this program 75 days ago, I did not think I could do it. I was scared, I was worried, I had my doubts... but I made a commitment regardless!!
And guess what???
Here I am with just 6 days left to go and am proud to say I DID THE DAMN THING!!! Through the sweat, through the tears, through the hard, through the depression I was battling from last year... I fucking did it!!!
So, yea... I know your thoughts and I know your worries and I KNOW your doubts. Folks, I am NOT immune to these. BUT, I just CHOOSE to push through those!!
Don’t say you can’t, guys!! Instead, say you WILL, trust the process, and before you know it, you’ll be staring in the mirror at your own progress 12 weeks later with amazement!! It really is THAT easy!!
This round might be over on Saturday, but you KNOW I’m down for another! Soooo, curious... WILL you join us starting April 23?! Link in bio! 👇
Nothing about this community gets old for me... even after 3 1/2 years of being a part of it. Not the passion, not the excitement, not the energy, not the positivity... NOTHING!! Too many people don’t understand us or our mission until you come to an event like this one and when you do, there’s just no going back!! Damn, I love being a part of something so amazing where I get to help people take care of themselves, gain confidence AND happiness with themselves, and chase their dreams in the process. If you need this in your life, I want you to join me!! Seriously, what are you waiting for?! Thanks so much for the amazing live workout today, @autumncalabrese !! See you in a week in Mexico!! 🎉👯♀️♥️
If you don’t know these two facts about me, let me clue you in really quick:
1) I freaking LOVE to dance and will find an excuse to drop it like it’s hot just about anywhere... even in between sets on booty day (...and yes, this is problematic when your muscles hurt really bad! 🤣🤣)!
2) I LOVE to laugh and be silly and get a reaction out of people. This might not be a great reaction everytime, but I still live for it!! 🤣🤣
Happy Saturday, guys! My workout with my girls is done, my legs are spent, and I had a blast! How are you spending your morning?! 💃
Friday mornings are for cardio workouts with a couple of your favorite girls, mom talk, and celebrating each other for our commitment and dedication thus far this year!! 👯♀️ At the beginning of the year, the three of us made a commitment to each other and this program that we would stick to it no matter what. We agreed there’d be no fucking around 🙅♀️and we promised to keep each other accountable no matter what!! In the past 12 weeks, we have struggled some weeks with lack of motivation, tons of temptation, celebrated our birthdays (the same week mind you) minus cupcakes 🎂OR wine🍷, and we did it because of each other. ✋This, guys, is the power of our support system and community and I am 💯 confident I could not have done this without these girls pushing me. 🤗I’m not here to lie to you and tell you this journey is easy, but hot damn is it worth it!!! 🙌And when you have people by you cheering you on with 90 other women, you just have no excuse to fail!! 👏We have one more week left of our program, Mexico for 5 days, and then we are having a BIG happy hour event for all of our challengers to celebrate a job well done these past 3 months. Then, we start all over on April 23 for another round... stronger, happier, and frankly, smaller. 💁🏼♀️We want YOU to feel this way too, so what do you say... wanna do another round with us?? Link in bio!!👉
This picture is way outside my comfort zone to share but I know it’s in these areas that we grow so here goes. .
With less than two weeks left of our 80 Day Program, I am SO proud of how hard my body has worked these past 3 months. ....not just in the intense physical workouts I have done, but overcoming the emotional and mental aftermath of all that we went through in 2017. When I started this program, I was SO AFRAID I wouldn’t be able to stick it out, so afraid I would let my groups down, and so afraid I would never be able to regain the momentum I lost in the shitshow that was my life last year. Yet, I dug deep, leaned into my support system, trusted the process, followed the program to the letter, and here I am... stronger all around!! .
To be completely honest, I don’t give two shits about what the scale says, how many inches I’ve lost, or what size clothes I’m wearing right now. What I DO care about is that I know that I can do ANYTHING I put my mind to!! Now, it doesn’t mean it will be easy, but it means that if I really want it and am willing to put in the work, I CAN achieve anything. .
This body here has been through the ringer in 38 years.. it birthed two beautiful babies, fought off cancer, has battled debilitating anxiety and depression, and has gone from obese to normal weight too many times to count. No matter what I’ve done to beat it up, it continues to fight for me and the least I can do is fight for it. So, here I am fighting as hard as I possibly can for my health and proud as ever for the first time of the skin I’m in!! .
Don’t exercise cause you hate your body, guys... exercise and eat healthy because you love it!! Looking better and fitting into your clothes is really just an added bonus of healthy!! 🤗

It’s crazy to look back at the girl on the left. So much of her still exists in me today, yet so much has changed. I get feeling “stuck”, guys, but truth is you aren’t. You have the control to change your circumstances, take a different path, and choose happiness. If I can do it, trust me, so can you!
Stop waiting for the tables to turn and turn them yourselves. Now’s your chance.. join us now to start on April 23! You won’t regret it, I promise! #transformationtuesday formationtuesday
So much sweat to start this Tuesday, but also sooooo much pride, excitement, and awe in myself!!! Hardest workout of the ENTIRE program is complete and I am soooo proud of myself for pushing through. No matter what the scale says, no matter how many inches I’ve lost, I feel so incredibly accomplished with staying the course these past 3 months. No food tastes better than strong feels, guys!! Next round starts after we get home from Mexico on April 23 and I still have 8 more spots left!!! Message me to get in on this or check out the link in my bio to reserve your spot. I’m telling you... you want this feeling in your life and I won’t quit asking until you get it! 😘

Cardio sucks UNLESSSSS you have good friends to do it with and good music to work out/sing to during!! Hey, Day 55.... seeeeeeee ya!!! 👋 ooooh, and if you wanna get some fun behind the scenes footage, go check out out my stories! 🤣
Wanna know the cool thing about being on Day 54 of our program?!? I am strong enough to do THIS move from today’s workout!!!! 😱🙌 If you had shown me this move on day 1 or even day 30, I would’ve said NO WAY, but today, I actually did the damn thing and didn’t die!! Was it easy?! Well, no, that’s a different story... BUT, I was mentally and physically strong enough to push through it. That, in and of itself, is a HUGE win!!! So, yea, guys... those obstacles in your way... yep, those are meant to be there and aren’t meant to derail you!! They’re meant to challenge you and toughen you up for what’s to come! Stay the path, stay focused, and you too will feel the reward of jumping that hurdle!! Happy Thursday, fam!! 😘🤗
