Are you tracking your workouts?
You may not believe this, but not all of my clients come in saying they want to be a size 4, with a Kardashian booty, and rock hard abs. Many of my clients just want to get back to their normal and rebuild the strength they had prior to a surgery or health issue.
I have worked with Debby-Deb aka Sunshine for over 18 months. When she started, she was only 3 months into recovery after having a complicated L3 L4 Spinal Fusion which resulted in some nerve damage. Her goals were and are pretty realistic.
- Regain her balance
- Strengthen her core to aid her back health
- Lose the 35 pounds she’d gained after he accident / surgery
- Get back to wearing high heels
All achievable goals, but not without pitfalls and hurdles. After returning to work, she had to take time off of training due to renewed spinal and hip pain.
Well, we figured out a new plan of attack! She has a new goal and we have a new deal! We are starting back at the basics and we aren’t going to let pain keep her from her sessions. If all we can do is spend our time together stretching out those problem areas, we will work through the pain. Our deal is that she shows up no matter what and we adapt, overcome, and persevere to achieve her new goal! Stay tuned and see what tenacity and showing up can do! Bam!!!
The only way you’re going to change your body, improve your health, and live a better life is to do it. No one can push you like you can push yourself. No one else can do it for you! Change your life one Monday at a time. BAM!!
Love ’em or hate ’em, Mondays get a bad wrap. Much like any other situation in life, it’s all about how you look at it and what kind of energy you give it. This is one of the reasons that I am focused on making sure you’re working out on Mondays. Your Monday workouts will automatically set you on the right path for the week. Time to jumpstart your week and get in the gym! Remember, NEVER miss a Monday! BAM!!!
I am going to keep preaching “never miss a Monday workout.” Check out this inspiring video compilation of Motivation! Focus! And The Rock!

In my first blog, when Coach Rob chose me to be featured in one of his Transformation Tuesday blogs, I talked about running the Two Cities Marathon in 2016. When I look back, the marathon was a big goal, but like I said, I finished and I didn’t die — 2 huge wins for me. In March of 2017, I started private training sessions with Rob and weighed 185 pounds. Throughout the year, I pushed myself and allowed Rob to push me to limits I never imagined I would ever reach. In November, I again ran the Two Cities Marathon and improved my mile time by 1 minute and 47 seconds, which cut my time by over 28 minutes. Now that’s a BAM worthy WIN by my standards!
Although I have made major strides, achieved some big goals, and am still on track, it isn’t always easy to stay the course. OMG was it a challenge during the holidays to watch what I ate! I still had some sweets but I really tried to limit myself and keep up my training. I think I did pretty well with all the temptations that were thrown at me. Now with the marathon finished and all of the holiday calories put away until next year, it is time for me to work on my 2018 goals.
Today, 10 months from when I started individual sessions, I am down 52 pounds. My short term goal is to reach 128 pounds by March of this year and then, like most people, the next HUGE challenge will be to maintain that weight. My plan is to use BAM Logic!!! I have my goal / plan, which is to remain consistent, stick with 5 days of bootcamp during the week, and my weekend runs. Every other weekend I give my self a rest day. The trick, as Coach Rob says, is the The MILLION Dollar Word, MOTIVATION. Staying motivated shouldn’t be too difficult, I will just pull out my before and after pictures — and there is always that motivation to shave just a little more off that marathon time.
With the first full week of 2018 in the books, how do you feel you did on working on your new goals for 2018? Are you on target for week one?
