⚡️HIIT ABS⚡️ Summer vacation may be officially over for my son, who I just dropped off at his first day of HIGH SCHOOL 😮. (I cried all the way home by the way.) 😢

But for us moms back to school means back to self care and sanity. 🧘🏻‍♀️ Get back into your routine w this quick hiit ab circuit that you can get done anywhere and in less than 5 minutes🙌🏼. Of course no workout would be complete without being interrupted by trusty pup, Easton. Finally had to throw the ball in the pool to get rid of him. 😂

30 seconds per move

1️⃣ Twist Jacks 
2️⃣ Starfish Sit Up
3️⃣ Beast Kick Thru
4️⃣ Leg Circles
5️⃣ Broad Jump Inchworm
6️⃣ “Seashell to Starfish” this one inspired by @misadugally

I love my body and everything it is capable of! I want to repeat that to myself everyday 🌤I won’t compare and I will just embrace me and accept who I am. 5ft nothing and all! I will teach my daughter the same and as many women I can who need support. My mum certainly taught me the same 🥰 
I always say and I’ll say it again and again .. it’s about the CAN do and not always about the LOOK like.. bikini by @sweatybetty 🤩💁🏻‍♀️ #fitandfortysomething #strongnotskinny #embraceyourself

Cheers to a healthy, happy and bright new year! 🥂🎉 Yesterday I received one of the best compliments ever and it was the perfect way to end 2018 and start 2019. 🤗
A client texted “Michele- you are truly in the right field”. And finally at 43 years old, I know that I have found my path.  I am grateful for all of the opportunities that opened up to me this year from new clients, teaching new classes @breakthrufit and becoming a coach @runwithstride. But most of all fulfilling a long time dream of creating the MC FIT Method. 🙏🏼 I love what I do and I feel blessed every day that I get to coach, be challenged and inspired by all of you. 🧡

I am looking forward to continuing the journey with you next year! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! ****************************************************** Sweater in my fave color orange by @helmutlang purchased @intermixonline, leapord belt @shopjbee and love these @citizensofhumanity high waisted jeans @myelisab .

Last night’s pre-holiday party touch up. 💋🥂
******************************************************
Going through my beauty routine helped me choose this week’s QUESTION OF THE WEEK. “Which Collagen Supplement should I use?”🤷🏻‍♀️
******************************************************
I have gotten so many questions about collagen protein lately. Most from women interested not only in the muscle recovery aspect but in the beauty benefits as well. ******************************************************
Going LIVE on IG with the answer SOON!! If you don’t catch me live it will be available for the next 24 hours!🙋🏻‍♀️
******************************************************
I love this emerald green tuxedo dress by @milly that I purchased at local boutique @myelisab,  @chanelofficial wallet on chain w charms is my perfect night out bag that can be worn cross body or held as a clutch. @bergdorfs NYC Hair by @glamsquad.

The Black Unwind Joggers were restocked yesterday 🖤. I paired them with the Black Boyfriend Hoodie for the win today.

My clients often come to me with a specific weight in mind that will define their happiness. You can be your “ideal weight” but if you are suffering to achieve it that doesn’t sound so ideal to me.

Adding muscle to your frame is the most ideal way to get lean and stay lean. And sometimes that means weighing a little more on the scale because muscle is denser than fat.

A deadlift platform and Rogue Olympic plates 🤯. I feel like a kid in a candy store!  Now all I need to do is learn to convert kilograms to pounds faster 🤣. 150 kg (331 lbs) for 3 reps today 💪🏾. That's a personal best but I didn't realize it until after I left the gym.  It's amazing what we can do when we move outside the boxes we're finding comfort in!

Officially started prep 2 wks ago. Still over 2,000cal/day, still hitting PRs!! -
I’m not 100% if I can go heavier, but I’m trying every single day!!! Today was a great #legday! Let go of my fear of BB thrusts (had been using smith)and grabbed it no problem! #win I am shooting for that 300# leg press, especially since I can’t get as heavy w squats cuz of my #kneeinjury Make do and push where I can! #motto -
Past few months in the gaining phase, I was really more lax in my food choices. That was pretty nice, but having the control now makes my whole life easier.
-
Had a first yesterday, out to eat. I can see why this is a no. Lol it’s not something I’ll be doing again. 💩 -
Anyway, just a bunch of ramblings. Hard work, but it’s SO rewarding!
-

For those who are on the fence about prep, take the plunge! Seriously, I wish I would have a yr ago! Nothing to lose and LOADS to gain!

This is your Monday morning wake up call ☎️ .
Time to get up and get at em!  Whether it’s now or later get r done ✅ then tell me about it!
.
Here is some “food for thought”👇
.
Gym membership ($50) “too expensive”
Date night ($35) “cheap”
.
60 minutes of exercise “busy”
14959 minutes on Facebook “time flies”
.

I do, do it for myself but I have to admit when a random guy in the gym gave me a thumbs up today after I did 11 pull ups I felt a moment of “yep this girl can & will” 🤣😉 on my way to my new goal of 15 #fitandfortysomething #notjustagirl

A little louder 🎤 for those in the back telling themselves, “I’ll just start January 1st.” I’m calling BS on it, y’all. The reason you don’t want to start is because you’re too afraid to commit to feeling healthier, feeling more confident, feeling strong AF. And what a shame it is to put that off nearly two more months. Stop giving yourself excuse after excuse as to why ʀɪɢʜᴛ ɴᴏᴡ is not the right time. Because here’s the truth: January will roll around and you’ll give yourself another excuse as to why the timing isn’t right to take control of your health: vacation coming up, family in town, work is gonna be crazy. It’s time to say fuck it and go for it. You are not promised tomorrow. You’ve only got today.

I made this banner a few months ago and it came up today as I was studying the #5secondrule .  We continue to make decisions based on how we FEEL.  The reality is, you may never FEEL like working out or working towards what ever goal you have. *

Practice ignoring that FEELING and push yourself to do what your instinct tells you is right.  We can't control how we FEEL but we can control how we ACT. *

The process works, but sometimes we get in our own way *  #justbcozfitness #personaltraining #personaltrainer #inhomepersonaltraining #fitnessmotivation #fitnesshabits #fitmoms #fitdads #dadbod #weightloss #fitandforty #fitandfortysomething #naperville #napervillefitness #aurorail #plainfieldil #joliet #gymlife

Good morning ☀️ This will keep me full & warm...and much tastier than plain oatmeal! I added my homemade 𝒶𝓅𝓅𝓁𝑒 𝒷𝓊𝓉𝓉𝑒𝓇 to @oatbox 𝒶𝓅𝓅𝓁𝑒 & 𝒸𝒾𝓃𝓃𝒶𝓂𝑜𝓃 oatmeal 🍎 I also added: hemp seeds, proactiv chia, coconut manna, walnuts, and raisins 😋 Lots of different ways to add some protein and healthy fats to your oatmeal 👍🏻 #oatmeal #breakingmyfast #whatsinmybowl #oatbox #applebutter #warmandcozy #sundayfunday #fuelyourbody #healthiswealth #fitandfortysomething

Just a reality post!! Hopefully to inspire someone not blow my own trumpet!  Feeling quite lethargic and fat before a night shift tonight, I gritted teeth and did a run on the treadmill. It wasn’t pretty but it’s done and the benefits I’ll receive are unmeasureable. #mentalhealth #fitandfortysomething #running #busymom #shiftwork

Went for my first 3 mile walk today since surgery 3 weeks ago. It felt so good to get back out again even though it was just a long slow walk. #gratefulthankfulblessed #instarunners #igrunners #runningmom #readyforacomeback #nevergiveup #keeponkeepingon #dowhatyoucan #focusonthepositives #fitandfortysomething #godisgood #readyfor2020 #steppingitup

I have been injured for over a month. I fell on my tailbone Thanksgiving weekend and I still have quite a bit of pain! 
Although I am strong and able to do more then I was a month ago I still have some pain and need to rollout at the end of my classes. 
Being injured could have set me back but I don’t have that sort of mindset...instead of giving up I slowed down and modified. 
Now as I am recovering I still feel strong and that I am making gains on my fitness journey. I am glad I didn’t give up even though there were times I felt like it. As the saying goes...slow and steady wins the race. 
If you have a goal and there are obstacles in your way, don’t give up. Instead modify your path to it.

Yesterday's bootcamp was 🔥🔥🔥! 5 round of 9 stations.  The crew continues to show up and knock it out!  Your boy even had to jump in for a round.  #justbcozfitness #personaltraining #personaltrainer #inhomepersonaltraining #fitnessmotivation #fitnesshabits #fitmoms #fitdads #dadbod #weightloss #fitandforty #fitandfortysomething #naperville #napervillefitness #aurorail #plainfieldil #joliet #gymlife #bootcampworkout

I can’t remember the last time I did a virtual class...so fun!!! Reminded me of how much I enjoyed beachbody’s 21 day fix extreme.

My last day at Eco Gym.  Sometimes you gotta shake things up!  Bitter sweet because I'll miss my #breakfastclub crew @teamwashington2011 @nrossa @tlraffaolcom Manny and others, but I'm excited about the change of pace my new gym will bring to my workouts.
