Monkey See, Monkey Do!

Yep, that's my four year old doing crunches right along with me on Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred! You can read my review of this series HERE. This totally proves that when your children see you working toward a healthy lifestyle, they will join right along with you!! I said, Monkey See Monkey Do! I was getting dressed to exercise and he asked if he could put on his "workout clothes" and do it with me??! Um, how could I turn down that offer! Y.E.S. you sure can!!!
Although I lost 85 lbs back in 2000, my weight has bounced up and down by about 10-15 lbs. Since having my youngest son 20 months ago, I hadn't seemed to shake the rest of the baby weight, sad but true. So, I'm proud to say that when my husband decided to change his way of life, it helped me step up my game too :)
I have lost 8lbs in about two weeks and here's how...
2 days a week: Jogging 3-4 miles
4 days a week: Spinning class, taught by ME and a class of only ME in my bedroom! Ha!
1-2 days a week depending on the week: workout video...either p90x or 30 Day Shred and I usually combine two of her workouts into one, because they are rather short!
No "diet" but we practice healthy eating habits and keep our portions in check! High protein and veggies, low simple sugars/carbs and SMALL PORTIONS! Practicing portion control will get you results like you wouldn't believe!!
Plus, check out some of my great recipes on previous posts to give you some great healthy eating ideas and tips!!! Any specific questions,
FEEL FREE to email me at,
I'd love to hear from you and help your family in any way possible!

Portion control for me it's the answer and a thorn in my side. Gotta work on that one this year. Awesome that you are your own spinning instructor

You are so inspiring! It is so true about the monkey see monkey do. My daughter loves it when I put on dance workout videos. She dances right there with me. Have a great night!
