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 15: Summer Wardrobe Staple

My Summer Wardrobe staples are my 365 Staples

  1. Leggings
  2. Tank Top
  3. Sports Bra

I wear my own apparel a good 80% of the time and I work in activewear so the occasion that I’m seen out of leggings is very RARE!

My favorite Outfits are currently my Circuit Leggings Paired with my Lift Happily Ever After Tank

Day 14: Father’s Day Gift Guide

If only dads were as easy as moms.  You go into marshalls or tjmaxx and already in April they have a selection of adorable mother’s day trinkets.  You can get your mom flowers and you’re good to go!

There are only so many ties and shirts your dad actually needs.  Some dads have hobbies like fishing and golfing that have accessories that are decently priced, but my dad enjoys shooting, test driving expensive cars, and really nice watches….all items that when you’re on a budget…it’s difficult!  My dad isn’t much of a drinker, he only likes wine, but there’s more than enough in his wine fridge.

He’s handy, but we never know what he needs until he actually starts a new home DIY.

The cute shirts that say dad only work when you’re a first time dad and he’s been one for 24 years now so he’s over that phase and definitely not about to get him a grandpa shirt because I’m not ready to put him into that phase.

Breakfast and bed never really worked because even the few times he has a day off he’s up at 7, and let’s be real….on a day off that’s ridiculous.

Dad’s are tough! So this blog challenge entry is a total fail…LOL!

Day 12: How to fight Burnout

So this post is supposed to be advice on how to handle summer blogging burnout, but since I do not by any means consider myself a blogger, I’m going to write about summer fitness goal burnout.

Because this society views fitness in short term, versus long term, people spend the first 3-4 months of the year shedding their holiday wait and prepping for the summer only to slowly fall into a downward spiral to repeat the same toxic cycle over when the new year hits.

So, how do you break the cycle?  I get that summer is hard because you have more BBQs, More vacations, more time to go to the beach, go out, but what about the goals you’ve worked so hard to achieve?  How do you keep them in Check?  There’s no need to avoid going out in order to avoid gaining weight.

10 Tips to Making you Summer body, your winter Body:

  1. Keep Alcohol to 1-3 drinks a week
  2. Don’t drink your calories in juices, sodas, etc.
  3. Make healthy choices at restaurants!  Most places have a light and fit menu with more realistic portion sizes.
  4. Request cutting the salt a restaurant uses for the dish in half, or excluding it altogether because chances are they hide salt in the sauces without realizing it.
  5. Don’t skip your workouts!
  6. Replace a meal with a healthy shake!  I’ve been drinking the same meal replacement every day for 4 years now and love it! Definitely helps keep me in check when I’ve gone too far passed moderation!  Click here for more info!
  7. Don’t forget your water!  Avoid retaining water, skin break outs, and dehydration from the summer heat!
  8. Swap the fried for the grilled!
  9. Swap the processed sugars for REAL sugars found in fruits, vegetables, and grains.
  10. It’s ok to eat the pizza and have the slice of cake!  It’s just not ok to eat more of that than you do whole foods!

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 6: Wedding Anniversary Plans

Ironically the first time I ever do a blog challenge, and I am actually married.  Even more of a coincidence, June 17th, is our 6 month anniversary.

For our 6 month anniversary we plan on going out for some sushi to celebrate making it through the transition period of living together for the first time…LOL!

But for our 1 year anniversary as of now the plan is to celebrate it by hitting up all of the Disney parks and possibly making it up to Giraffe Ranch near Tampa.  We haven’t solidified the plans as my husband is currently doing a professional MBA meaning he is in school all year round so we do not know if he will have classes yet on the dates we want.  The weekend after that is Christmas and then New Years.  I have done both holidays at disney world and as beautiful as it is the lines are absolute MISERY.  So fingers crossed the dates workout for us.

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!
    • 100 Youtube Subscribers
    • Gain 8,000 new followers across all 5 of my instagram accounts

Day 2: Most Meaningful Vacation Memory

June 2nd of this blog challenge calls for the most meaningful vacation memory. This one has been a piece of cake to remember.  Despite Fiji being the most recent vacation it is most memorable.

We rung in the new year before anyone else in the world because of where Fiji falls in the international dateline, which was a pretty spectacular feeling.  So not only did we begin 2017 knowing we celebrated it first but we also rung in the new year on a beach in fiji, together, as husband and wife on our first ever vacation alone together.  I have no idea how we will ever top this past new year.

June Blog Challenge

In an effort to further change things up on the blog before returning to strictly fitness posts I decided to hop on this June Blog Challenge I found scrolling through Pinterest.  Usually I blog 2 times a week so the first goal of this Blog Challenge is to hit all 30 Blogs.

Day 1: What do you do to express your creativity?

My entire business is an expression of my creativity.  I’m not much of an arts and crafts person, but I am more of a digital expressionist.

  • Apparel:  My apparel line is one of the main ways I express my creativity.  It is bold, unique, and not for the person who prefers simplicity.
  • Programs:  My 7 Ebooks are all different, use variation, and creativity to help others achieve their health and fitness goals.
  • Social Media:  As of right now I am the person who designs and creates 100% of the content for all of my handles.  I thoroughly enjoy putting everything together, coming up with the quotes, visuals, etc.  Eventually I know that I will have to hire someone to take on the content creation, but for now I am having so much fun with it.  One thing I do plan on always doing is being the person you speak to when you message any of my pages. I hate when people outsource their pages and have someone else to response.
