Some cardio to kick the day in gear and get ready for thirsty Thursday, right Kris Miller
Wow, Bootcamp today knocked me out. Laid down at 7:30 for a minute with Zoey and woke up at 10:27am. Kris Miller, thank you…
Bootcamp has pushed my limits. I now feel a lot like Gumby. Thanks, Kris Miller, though somehow I got some cardio in this workout too. Marvin is helping me recover ☀️

"If you’re bored with life – you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things – you don’t have enough goals." – Lou Holtz

🤔 I should focus on cardio if I want to lose weight.


If weight (or fat) loss is one of your goals, exercise can definitely help – but nutrition plays the biggest role in your results.

Your body burns stored fat when you create a calorie deficit, eating fewer calories than you take in.

That being said, exercise is very important for your overall health, plus it will help you burn more calories every day.

It also can help you keep muscle as you lose weight … and maintain your results once you hit your goal.

The most effective plans for body composition change take YOU into account, from your overall health and wellness and your likes and dislikes, to your mindset and lifestyle.

What’s your favorite kind of workout? ⬇️⬇️⬇️



It’s GAME ON time! 💪

🤩It’s really important to us to try new things regularly –which is why we regularly take new certification classes/formats that challenge our personal fitness as well as our minds & muscles.

We do this for a few reasons – including our own self-care – but it also helps us to be better coaches, too.

Because when we do something new, it helps us identify even more with our clients, who often are stepping out of their comfort zone and trying something new.

👉🏼Here are a few of my takeaways from our recent training regarding heart rate training so far:
-We don’t always have to go as hard as you can to get a good workout
-Training to heart rate trains more than just your heart
-We are all students…. always.

What are YOU working on now? Let me know in the comments! ​​⬇️⬇️⬇️


Thank you to everyone who came out to our Perking Up this morning with the Waterford Chamber of Commerce! I am so grateful to live and have a business in this community! Your support, sense of community and fellowship is amazing! Great seeing so many smiling faces this morning!

🔥What’s the #1 enemy of your goals?🔥

I’m talking about the absolute biggest roadblock standing in your way.

There are so many to choose from:
Not having enough time
Lack of support
Not knowing what to do
Your genetics
The list goes on and on!

😲But what if I told you that none of those things are actually your enemy? (Seriously!)

That’s because… drumroll… the #1 thing standing in between you and your goals is:


We get in our own way in so many ways. Here are just a few:

You haven’t made reaching your goals a true priority. This means you let your healthy habits slide when you’re stressed/tired/something more fun comes along.
You have imposter syndrome. You don’t think you are worthy of your goals, which makes it easier to quit.
You haven’t set yourself up for success. It’s super easy to get discouraged and quit when you don’t have a plan, support, accountability, etc.
You think you don’t have the willpower. EVERYONE (and I mean EVERYONE) struggles from time to time. But when you know WHY your goal matters to you, it’s easier to overcome those struggles.
You let one “slip” derail you. No one is perfect 24/7. The people who reach their goals get up after a slip-up, dust themselves off, figure out what went wrong, and get back at it!

Those are just a few off the top of my head. There are dozens more.

💡BUT… knowing yourself and being aware of the ways that YOU tend to get in your own way, will help you to become even STRONGER.

What would happen if the next time you sabotaged yourself, you took some real time to think about the reasons why – without beating yourself up for it?

“Know that you are your greatest enemy, but also your greatest friend.” – Jeremy Taylor.

Your mindset makes all the difference!

Taking some real time to explore it – whether you do it by journaling, working with a coach, or talking with a trusted mentor or friend – can help you reconnect with the reasons your goals matter to you.

Because when your mindset is right, you can overcome just about any obstacle that is standing in your way!

Do you agree? Disagree? Let me know in the comments! ⬇️⬇️⬇️


😋 This doesn’t get ANY easier…

It’s got just 3 ingredients… but you can add a bonus topping: cheese!

It’s a perfect option for those “emergency” nights when you don’t have the energy or time to make dinner from scratch.

It also makes for a GREAT meal prep recipe.

👉🏼TIP: You can use veggie burgers, ground turkey, chicken, or beef in this recipe.

Sloppy Joe Stuffed Potatoes
(serves 4)

4 sweet potatoes
1 lb (450 g) lean ground meat
1 12 oz (680 g) jar of your favorite good-quality marinara sauce
Optional: grated cheddar or goat’s cheese

Wash, dry, and pierce the potatoes with a fork several times. Place in the microwave to cook (time will vary depending on your oven, 15-20 minutes).

While it cooks, heat a skillet over medium heat and spray with nonstick coating. Place the ground meat in the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally to break it up into bite-sized chunks. Cook until brown, 5-7 minutes. Drain off excess fat and add the marinara sauce.

When the potatoes are ready, place on plates and slice along the top, opening up to fluff the potato. Top with the marinara mixture, and sprinkle with optional cheese. Delish!
