Time and time again BBX has proven that there is no need to waste hard earned time and money on the band aid treatments of diet plans, shakes or supplements and ineffective workouts! You CAN rev up your metabolism by eating REAL food and more of it! Just check out Dede Barbanti's book TRANSFORM so that you can learn the exact program each of our finalists were on.
BBX is a lifestyle....not a diet!

"....To live fully is to always be in the unknown, to experience each moment as completely new and fresh. To live is to be willing to die over and over again." - Pema Chodron
Let go of who you think you are and become what you are right now. Do this again and again and again.
Most of time, pain feels entirely unnecessary and cruel. But pain is a survival mechanism. It's designed to let us know when something is hurting us and to encourage us to stop doing that thing. Whether it is burning your forehead on hair straighteners or ending a toxic relationship. It could be a habit you've developed that doesn't actually benefit you in anyway. Whatever it is, don't just stop it. Acknowledge what you've learned from that painful experience. You may not see it now, but in almost every encounter, there is a lesson. Try your best to reflect and take something from it. Try and turn it into growing pains and use it to take yourself to that next stage.
Find a workout program/routine and nutrition plan that works for you and RUN WITH IT! Finding a routine that your body enjoys and loves will do three things for you!
ONE: transform your body physically
TWO: leave you feeling amazing and confident
THREE: give you another thing to look forward to everyday and work toward
Why wouldn't you do this for yourself? Why wouldn't you want to live the healthiest most fulfilling life? What's stopping you? 💪🏼 Go out there and be confident, love yourself, love others, and life will return the favor! Trust me, I'm still working on all of this myself!
Why not work on it together? Join me! ♥️
23 Then he said to them all: ‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.
How hard is this right? Dying to yourself not only one day... but every single day of your life! How many time does has your flesh been stronger than what God is setting up inside you? How many people have we hurt because of this?
I did this painting back in 2014 and I was kind of starting on this task God sent, which is PAINT! But paint for ME.... I thought I did understand what God was trying to tell me through this painting... but today God has revealed to @manuelnube and I that really... we must die to ourselves every day for the rest of our lives [Spanish]
23 Entonces dijo a la multitud: «Si alguno de ustedes quiere ser mi seguidor, tiene que abandonar su manera egoísta de vivir, tomar su cruz cada día y seguirme.
Que difícil es esto verdad? Morir a ti mismo no solo 1 día... sino cada día de tu vida! Cuantas veces ha podido más nuestra carne que los que Dios ha depositado en ti? A cuantas personas hemos lastimado por esto?
Hice está pintura en el 2014 cuando a penas estaba comenzando está tarea que Dios me dejó que es pintar! Pero pintar para Él! Creí entender lo que Dios estaba tratando de decirme a través de esta pintura... pero hoy Dios nos ha revelado a @manuelnube y a mi... que morir a nosotros mismos, es en serio... y es todos los días de nuestra vida.
••••THE RIGHT WAY TO DO A WEIGHTED LUNGE••••
------------------------------ ❌ -> Letting the weight pull your shoulders forward -> Rounding your back -> Leaning forward so you come onto your front toe ✅ -> keep your core tight (sucking your belly button in) -> Keeping your back right and shoulders back all the way through the movement -> Keeping your front foot flat on the floor -> Keeping your weight centre between both legs
Fazit Woche 1: +200g trotz 7x cardio und 3 Workout-Einheiten. Hab aber vor 2 Tagen einen Fressflash bekommen .. lasse mich von dieser Ernüchterung aber nicht unterkriegen, das wird schon!! Zudem zeigt das Maßband ein bisschen weniger an, was ja an sich ein gutes Zeichen ist. In Hoffnung auf eine bessere Woche 2 🙋🏻

Today's rest day wasn't a super relaxed rest day. Instead, Mother Nature decided to dump a big load of fluffy white death on us❄️ which lead to me shoveling my: 1. Back deck 2. Front deck 3. Sidewalks and 4. Half my driveway..can it be spring now!? My parents sent me a picture of my youngest sister in front of the Langley Temple and they have GORGEOUS tulips bloomed in front of it...totally jealous😩☀️
Whiney rant done..tomorrow is MonSLAY!! Who's ready to smash another week of workouts!? Tomorrow's leg day and I'm ready to show it who's boss💪🏼 I'm also doing a One Perfect Week this week which will involve absolutely NO CHOCOLATE!!!! I'm not even kidding..I found more easter chocolate and I keep getting the munchies so I eat it but end up feeling like 💩!! So, First on the list is no chocolate. Second, smash in 6 days of workouts plus 1 spin cycle class. And Third, drink 3 of my Wonder Woman bottles of water which would equal to about half my weight in oz.
This week is gonna be killer but it's gonna be the good kind! I want to push myself harder, I want to progress more in different areas, I want to reach my new and still in play goals and smash them to the ground!
This is me vs myself. Game on👊🏼 Who are you against? -
My goal is to become my strongest self. To continue gaining strength in my knee. I was strong enough to be released, but my quad to hamstring ratio is not at 100%. I'm determined to conquer this next goal. .
What is your goal? How will you conquer it?
3 weeks ago when I finished Insanity I was in the "best shape of my life" just as they advertised I would be after 63 days. I'm now seeing that not only was I in my best physical shape, but I was in my best mental shape as well. After the program ended, I let out a big sigh of relief that it was all over, but promised myself that the end of Insanity would just be the start of something else. Unfortunately Insanity also left me with what I'm pretty sure is a stress fracture in my tibia. I've continued to train on it (stupid, I know. But I'm not gunna miss this half-marathon for anything). Even though I've continued to run and have progressed, I know that I'm not getting even close to the level of intensity as Insanity. Slowly over the last few weeks the diet has started to slip as well. I haven't done any kind of outrageous binge of cookies, cake, or fried food. It actually all started with just eating larger portions of the good stuff I had already been eating. This didn't alarm me too much. I chalked my increased appetite up to my increased physical activity. Slowly however this has evolved into a light beer here and there, a handful of pretzels perhaps, or that extra needless snack just before bed. Yesterday I officially achieved 30 lb weight loss and ran 7 miles. So last night I thought I would treat myself while watching the hockey game and eat a little taco-bowl and have a beer. Well after that it turned into a taco bowl, 3 beers, almost an entire bag of white cheddar popcorn, a rice-pudding cup and I can't even think of what else. Anyway, needless to say I woke up feeling broken, depressed, and as if my leg pain was something so much worse than what it is. At one point I threatened committing "diet suicide." However, this journey has been too difficult to just throw away, and I'd much prefer to "start over" now than to gain my 30 lb back and do it then. Which leads to my next post... #fitnessmotivation#instahealth#halfmarathontraining#training#run#running#cardio#eatclean#diet#healthyfood#exercise#instafit#transform#fitnessjourney#weightloss#fitdads#loveyourself#rn#nurse#dadbod#active#fitness#fitfam#runnersofinsta
My mom has been working hard with me on getting in shape and creating a healthy lifestyle. I was so happy to see her post about her accomplishments in our challenge group and I wanted to share some of what she said. "On today's hike with my hubby, I was so proud that I was able to climb every hill with little effort. Before I would be exhausted and have to take breaks in between huffing n puffing. I'm grateful to my daughter Jet'aime who has helped me get to this point and I will continue to work the rest of my life to improve and get in better shape everyday."
My mom's physical ability and attitude towards fitness have completely developed into positivity and perseverance. It is amazing to get to support her through this journey and I am so blessed to have her as my mother.
Maybe you too do not have a positive outlook on health and fitness and really want to turn it around; or maybe you just feel like you need more support to keep you accountable. Either way I want to help to motivate and support you so that you can reach your goals and be the happy healthy person you were born to be! Please message me if you are ready to go for it!

Allow me to share my experience re: food addiction. It's real. There's only 2 things I've ever been addicted to. I'm a slave to caffeine and I continue to fight my addiction to food. I've eaten junk simply out of stress, boredom, or because of the belief that it will enhance an already pleasurable experience i.e. vacation, sporting event etc. Prior to committing myself to a healthy diet/exercise routine in December, I was at my worst. I've never told anyone this but it was to the point that any little errand I ran included a stop at a drive-thru or 7-11 for a needless treat. It's not as if my wife monitors what I eat, but I would keep my little pitstops a secret, destroying the evidence on the way into the house. It even went as far as coming home from my errand/food binge to then eat dinner with my family as if I hadn't already eaten. Again, I didn't hide it because anyone would care, but because I was ashamed and I think somehow it made the food even more enjoyable, like I was getting away with something. I've been losing weight at a steady pace now for almost 4 months and although I haven't yet suffered a full-blown relapse to junk food, my unhealthy relationship w/ food has certainly reared it's ugly head on multiple occasions. I would say this weekend has been one of the hardest for me, as for the first time in 4 months I have felt like I'm falling back into a pattern of compulsive eating, and losing sight of my goal. More on this in my next post... #foodaddiction#struggle#fitnessmotivation#instahealth#halfmarathontraining#training#run#running#cardio#eatclean#diet#healthyfood#exercise#instafit#transform#fitnessjourney#weightloss#fitdads#loveyourself#rn#nurse#dadbod#active#fitness#fitfam#runnersofinstagram#keepmoving#workhard#dedicated#determined
