What’s this all about??

I created this blog because as a single parent and mother I know life can be tough it can be hard it can knock you down then kick you while you’re trying to get back up. So many single moms end up just wading through life without really experiencing hope, happiness, success or really just things they wish they could do. They think because they are a mom or a working single mom that they can’t experience life or can’t want certain things or to see certain places. I was that way too once! I figured I’m a single mother why bother I’ll just work two jobs and be lucky to retire before I die. Now I am single mother , a soon-to-be divorcee and I can see my life clearer now that what I ever have!! Tune in next week where I begin to really pull back the layers of ME!!

Zone training!!

Remember how I said other trainers don’t want you to know these things? Well here are some more tips and tricks to cardio!! Check out Zone training and how to find your zone so you can get the most from your workout! Next time you see your trainer, ask em, “what you know about that, and why aren’t we doing it?” Don’t let em tell you you’ll burn more fat doing long, monotonous cardio either…

Some people say I’m ugly 

Yes they do. And ya know What? I couldn’t give a damn!! Years ago people told me I was fat, that I was ugly that I wasn’t good enough and ya know what? I believed them! I’ve spent a majority of my life believing what people who know nothing about me, said to me!! It caused severe anxiety, I hated being around people and I really hated being around men because they were always the ones who made me feel worse about myself than women most the time!! As I’m writing this I’m all but having an epiphany bexause I’m realizing all my issues started with a boy!! Parents please for the love of God make sure your kids know how beautiful they are and not to let other people’s kids effect their thinking!! This was what I dealt with growing up and I wish it on no one!!

TMNT Fitness – LIVE!!: what they don’t want you to know…about cardio!!

So you’ve had a trainer in the past or you have one now. You found that no matter how well you did at your program, you still got stuck doing the same boring ass shit. No challenge no fun…wtf was the damn point? I’ll tell you: they were trying to get your 5, 10 or 20 sessions out of the way so thru could bleed you dry for another 5, 10 or 20 sessions. I’m here to tell you what WORKS and WHY!! Don’t be fooled by a constant state of slow and steady, yes it burns calories, but nothing like Interval training and when implemented as a regular nutrition (notice I didn’t say, “diet”) program, you have a real recipe for success!!

TMNT Fitness – LIVE!! Emotional Eating 

It is a hard habit to break and even harder one to maintain. In the fitness industry, it’s one of the biggest hurdles my clients fave because most of them have been dealing with emotional eating their whole lives and it’s usually due to a major stressor they had as a child. Sometimes these issues, with strong motivation and support, can be alleviated and other times, it’s necessary to have another professional involved. Watch a replay of Emotional Eating and take action!

TMNT Fitness – LIVE!!

This is a simple question: how bad do you want it? If you’re saying you want something and you can say, “buuut…[enter excuse here]” then you don’t want it bad enough. You have to want something with every fiber of your being. You have to want it so bad you can taste it!! Like if you can’t have it, you’ll fight tooth and nail to get it or else die trying!! You may think I’m crazy as you’re reading this, and if you do then you don’t want whatever it is bad enough. Why? Because let me tell you something: when you reach your breaking point, when you really say, “I’ve had enough, something needs to change” then you will do any and everything you can to make that change. Personal life, career, emotional, it doesn’t matter. When you want you’ll be like a hungry tiger you wounded prey. Smell it out till you find it. failure isn’t an option.

then tear it to shreds and lick your lips while you do it!! Thats when you know how bad you want it. You don’t lose the scent but you keep searching til you find it.
