HELLO OCTOBER! Oh my goodness the months are flying by! How are YOU
doing so far this year? Getting to your goals? Working hard? Or maybe
not so hard? Well it's time to CHANGE that. Change for YOU. Do you have a
goal that you envision yourself in? Why not put in the work to GET
there! You have all the tools you need to get to where you want to be,
you just need some self motivation to push yourself to get there.
Remember, you only get the results from the work you put INTO yourself.
So why not start NOW. Get ready for this month's new plan,
[Random note: Hope you all are subscribed to my new YouTube Channel, where I'll be posting a bunch of videos of workouts in the gym, at home workouts where I workout WITH you, baking and cooking in the kitchen, as well as random vlogs and lifestyle tips!]
Get ready for some HIGH INTENSITY workouts right here, full of jumping actions mixed with some light weights, to get that heart rate going and that fat BLASTING.
If you cannot perform some moves, like a burpee or mountain climbers, I have added a slight modification in there, but if you cannot do them AT ALL due to physical limitations, then this might not be the plan for you! But you can always try any of the other #Vmfityear14 Month Workouts to focus on building strength in the gym to jump start your journey!
So what are you waiting for?! You've got 1 month til the big Spooky Holiday, so grab your program, some light weights, and get to work! You'll be addicted to the sweat and the change you'll see.
And I'm super super excited to get this journey going. I actually could not sleep last night because I was so happy hahah! :P I know I know, silly Josie. Anyways, keep reading below for the TIRAMISU recipe!
WELL Here I am giving you all an update on my life, a little rundown of the 2014 Olympia, working with the BEST Company out there, Quest Nutrition, and my plans for the future!
So this whole weekend can be summed up in one word: SURREAL.
I still can't believe that I got a chance to go to Vegas to help rep the best protein company out there, QUEST! #onaquest. It was such a blast meeting the whole Quest team, hearing their vision and goals for the future and for the company, and just seeing such HUMBLE people get together not just to make money or profit from selling products, but with the goal of making a positive CHANGE in people's LIVES from their products. They're not about selling the most or being all above others and mighty,
but they genuinely want to make a positive healthy impact on people.
They want to help stop obesity, help stop health-related diseases,
eating disorders, self hate and body image disorders. They want people
to know that they can live a healthier lifestyle, and that starts with
what they put in their body. I can't even remember everything that was said this weekend, but basically, this company cares about PEOPLE. And I absolutely loved that.
Now to the Expo itself. It was a BLAST! I've been to the Arnold Expo in the past in Ohio, but never to work a booth, and I thought those were crowded and tight spaced and miserable at times, but the Olympia was surprisingly less crowded than I would have thought! Maybe it was bigger space in the convention center, or maybe it was because I was in the Quest booth the majority of time, which had tons of space for all of us to walk around. It was so much fun to meet all the people in line, actually get approached for pictures, definitely all a new experience for me and I could not have asked for a better weekend. By the end of Saturday we were just chucking Quest Bars at people's heads! So if you went, I hope you got yourself a bag stuffed with Quest Bars and Quest Chips! I'm pretty sure we gave away THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of products this weekend! And it's all for YOU. Quest doesn't get stingy on those samples as you can tell! :P
I really hope I get asked back to the next big expo and get to rep the amazingness that is Quest Nutrition again! <3
The PEOPLE though, that was probably my favorite part of the whole weekend. I got to meet @FreshFitNHealthy, or Sarah, from Instagram who I'd been chatting with a while before the expo, and we clicked INSTANTLY. Like, best friend status, in less than 48 hours. She's so sweet, down to earth, and adorable and probably like my tall Floridan twin if I ever had one.
I got to meet Clark Pagaduan, the man who's been my connect to Quest Nutrition for the LONGEST time. He's the absolute funniest and sweetest guy EVER! Also met Mike who works for Quest as well, but more with the Youtube side!
Actually, their YouTube accounts inspired ME. [Here's the UPDATE :P ]
Yup, I want to make my own FOR REAL YouTube account. I know I kind of/not really/[it sucked] YouTube videos in the past when I wanted to do vlogs on my bikini journey, but that kind of fell through. This time I'm going in 110%! I want to post workout videos, baking and cooking videos, random vlogs, how I'm living just a regular lifestyle, balanced and intuitive, help you all out who are struggling with any type of ED, and more. I feel like it'll be more interactive that way too! I'm going to post it all! My LIFE. And I hope you all enjoy it, because I know I'll enjoy making it!
That was my recap on the Olympia, the amazingness of Quest as a company, the great friends and long lasting relationships created, and my goals for the future!
edition's workouts will be focused on building that STRENGTH, and "toned" look that a lot of ladies out there look for! Don't be afraid to hit the weights! They'll mold and form your bodies in AMAZING ways! Then be on the lookout for next month's edition, Halloween Slimdown! Which will target on blasting the fat before the end of the month! Who's in it to get STRONG and SEXY this month?! What are you waiting for?! Purchase below for $6.50!
"Ok I've gotta eat strict, have to eat clean. Nothing processed, no junk, nothing high fat high carb can touch my lips..... except maybe I'll have the one cookie. DANG IT. Well I've gone and screwed it all up. I'm just going to finish the whole box."
"80% Diet, 20% Gym? Ok I guess that's how it works! But mannn.... I just ate 10 oreos.. so my diet portion is messed up. Well I guess I messed up my day anyways, a workout isn't going to help anything, so I'm not gonna work out today."
How many times have you ever had these thoughts, or similar runs, running through your head?
Don't you wish you could just Eat when you're hungry and just STOP when you're full or satisfied? Why do we feel the need to just STUFF STUFF STUFF when we're not even hungry?
*Information on the Memorial Weekend Sale at the bottom!
(three) 4-week calendars FULLL OF FAT BLASTING WORKOUTS to really kick
your butt into gear this summer.
The way I've structured these workouts
is that they're focused on high intensity moves mixed with low intensity
moves, essentially like HIIT (high intensity intervals) cardio without
the sprints! There's a mix of circuits, timed intervals, AMRAPs (as many
rounds as possible) and more!
All different kinds of workouts to really
push your body and make it CHANGE!
Trust me, after workout 1 you WILL FEEL IT! These are intense, you'll
want to give up, but you WONT! Because you're going to get closer and
closer to your goals each workout you do! Your body will adjust, don't
worry! Don't give up, every workout is going to make you stronger,
faster and BETTER!
The beauty of this program is that It can be done in the GYM orrrr AT
HOME!! You just need some type of resistance (weights, books, soup cans,
kettle bell, etc), a step up bench or stair step, an interval timer,
and place to MOVE!
Now keep in mind this is the "BIKINI BODY" plan, so if you're looking to
build serious muscle, this won't be the plan for you. If you're looking
to increase endurance, get some serious fat burn and lose fat, then
this is the perfect plan! A "bikini body" isn't a specific size or weight or look, but about you
being happy and confident in the skin you're in and being fit and strong
in your body!
It's official start date is JUNE 1!
But even If you don't start
June 1, you can purchase this plan whenever you want and start the 12
weeks whenever your feel like it!!

I've seen programs like this priced anywhere from $50 to $70! It's crazy! I know we all want to get fit and live healthy, but we have budgets too! So I've made this program affordable for you!
** note: if you cannot perform jumping movements like a squat jump or burpee due to physical limitations, then I recommend not purchasing this plan as it contains these two moves as well as other physically challenging movements similar to them.
BUTTER BROWNIE CUPS!! Who doesn't love the sound of THAT?! Delicious quest bar drool worthy-ness! Hope you enjoy this totally simple creation! If you don't have these two flavors, you can always try plopping together 2 other ones! Be creative!
