3 Fitness Products Every Fitness Enthusiast Should Own

There are so many fitness products on the market right now it’s so hard to distinguish which are actually useful from which are a scam.  My personal top 3 necessities are:

  1. Gallon Gear:  Because staying hydrated is an important part of overall fitness, I have found that gallon gear helps me the most.  Why?  I hate luke warm water after a while and during long school days or long days at work my gallon jug gets warm or my water bottles that keep my water cold get annoying because I have to refill a million times a day.  The great thing about gallon gear is it’s a little slip cover for the gallon jug that keeps my water cold the entire day and has a convenient pocket for my phone and keys.  They have a bunch of fun colors for people with vibrant personalities and more neutral colors for those who prefer to stay low key.  Gallon Gear Coupon Code: MELISSALgallongear banner
  2. Seat Hoody:  This is another go to product for me as I sweat like a maniac and hate that sticky feeling on my car seat and skin….plus it’s kind of gross.  What I love about seat hoody is, it’s an easy on and off, it’s machine washable, and keeps your car seat from getting nasty.  Also convenient for beach days!  Seat Hoody Coupon Code: LETLERFIT15046803_1716258232035145_6260706190234222592_n(1)
  3. Set of Dumbbells:  A set of dumbbells is also a necessity as sometimes we just can’t make it to the gym for whatever reason.  Dumbbells are so versatile they make for great at home workout equipment and take virtually no storage space.  I got my personal set on amazon! Click Here:

Day 17: How do I keep my Daily Tasks Organized

Unless I have meetings or clients that are set at specific times I usually have my day filled with tasks that need to get done.  I work all of my tasks around the set meeting or client times as those are top priorities for the day.

All of my tasks I divide up into Morning, Afternoon, and Night.  Within those 3 time frames I list all of the tasks in order of most important to least important.  I try to keep my day as busy and productive as possible, because if I don’t I get easily distracted and not everything gets accomplished ironically.  Sometimes things pop up and mess up your original plan, but that’s just life and you have to work around it.

I function really well off post its and to do lists, as I don’t do well with keeping things organized electronically.  To keep things from piling up I NEVER go to bed unless everything is done, because getting lazy on yourself is one of the worst things you can do especially as your own boss in my opinion.

Once my day, week, or month is planned out I add in my workout time, which usually ends up being in the middle of the day or late at night.

Day 16: Summer Bucket List

I don’t really view summer any different as I do winter and spring.  It’s been that way since I graduated High School and spent all of my summers in class and working.  So my day to day activities stay the same.

We did get an unexpected chance to go to Dominican Republic visit family and spend 2 nights in Punta Cana, so that is something I’m definitely looking forward to.

Other than that the goal this summer is to test out the 75 workouts that will be in my upcoming ebook and put it together for it’s December release.  I am also currently working on getting the next LetlerFit Collection together for a Tentative august/September release along with a new site!

For the house we are working on getting the roof up, if this rain ever lets out.  We need a 48 hour clear forecast and it doesn’t seem like June will be giving that to us, which is NOT good because we’re on an insurance time crunch.  We are also working on finally finishing the stairs, but we also need a clear forecast for that to use the laminate cutter outside and leave the wooden part of the rails to dry outside so the stain doesn’t stink up the house again.

Day 13: Where would I go if I had the chance this summer?

If I had to choose, It would hands down be a Mediterranean cruise for 2 reasons:

  1.  My husband has never been to Italy and is dying to see Rome.  Rome is actually my favorite city that I have ever visited so I for one don’t mind revisiting.
  2. The cruise takes you to Naples and Florence.  Naples I have never been to and Florence I visited for a day and left wanting to go back.  I also have never been to Cannes or Spain.  I am tempted however to lean towards the Grand Mediterranean which also takes you throughout several places in Greece.

Day 9: 2017 Goal Checklist

Like I said in one of the earlier June blogs I set goals in the following categories

  • Household
  • Business
  • Personal Fitness

We have officially owned our house for a year now and have done all of the smaller remodeling projects and are down to the final 6 projects: The kitchen, the first floor tiles, roof, balcony tiles, half bathroom, and the master bathroom.  The goal for this year was to finish the kitchen, first floor, half bathroom, and balcony tiles as it’s a project that would get done all at once.  Then next year we were going to re do the roof and possibly the master bath, but the insurance said otherwise.  This year we had to re do the roof which means another year with an outdated kitchen and floors that get a spec of dust and look dirty despite just having cleaned them.

My fitness goals was to get my strength back to wear it was pre-surgery and pre-injury, which is in progress!

Business wise  have hit 25% of them and the other 50% are on track to being hit while the final 25% need a miracle…BUT I’m still working for them. I have also recently added more goals to the list and are getting done as well!

What has helped me turn by “New Years Resolutions” that no one ever keeps into goals that actually get reached is keeping them in constant site.

Day 3: June Goals

I would have preferred this part of the blog challenge be on the first of the month as that’s when I write down the month’s goals as well as check my progress for my quarterly and yearly goals.

I set goals in 3 categories

  1. Household (my husband and I)
  2. Personal Fitness Goals
  3. Business Goals

For the purpose of this blog I will go over some of my business and personal fitness goals for the month as my husband prefer I keep our household goals to between us. So here we go!

  • Personal Fitness Goals
    • If you follow me on instagram, facebook, twitter, or youtube, you know that in May I was dealing with a lot of gastro, new found allergies, and hormonal issues.  So this month my goals are not focused on hitting certain weight, inches, or physical numbers, but on focusing on feeling like my usual self.  I want my energy back, the feeling of being bloated 24/7 to go away, the side effects from some of the meds to disappear etc.  So while I still plan on keeping with my healthy lifestyle, I will not be tracking anything to the T.  I just want to feel like my usual self again.
    • Get consistent with 5 Training sessions a week (3 powerlifting, 2 general fitness)
  • Business Goals
    • To test out the first 25% of my new ebook and begin putting it together.  The goal is to release this new ebook in December of 2017
    • Move 80% of my remaining apparel collection to make room for the new summer collection!
    • Get a record number of people started on their fitness journey with my fitness programs
    • Get 10 new people started on their nutrition program and into my accountability chat
    • Make sure all of my personal training and nutrition clients hit ALL of their monthly goals
    • Put out 10 New Youtube videos…so far Ive put up 2!
