OK...I admit I LOVE my yoga gear.  Ironically enough, I do not do a whole lot of yoga (**insert me ducking from all the tomatoes being thrown**).  BUT, I do everything else in between where I have every reason to wear it.

I was given the wonderful opportunity to try out some clothing from a company that I just found out about recently.  They are in my opinion about to give one other very well known company a run for their money. They are called YOGASMOGA and basically, they ROCK!!

Let's talk about first impressions here.  Check out this wicked packaging:  It definitely says love to me!  :-)

I was literally like a kid on Christmas morning opening this up.  The colors were jumping out at me as I unwrapped the packages.

Not only is shipping FREE  *cue angels singing* but shipping is fast.  Their customer service is some of the best I have ever had and that is big in my books.  Hey it is about the people after all and if you as the customer are made to feel great, then winning all around.

First lets talk about the TIPPY TOE LEGGING.  Oh. Em.  Gee.  I am wearing the color 'Violet Twilight'.  These are seriously amazing.  I gave these a run for their money on the first night by putting them through a legs workout, Wendy Style.  They came out the winner.  What I loved most about them is the waist is just a little higher, so during my workout I didn't feel the need to keep pulling them up.  The color is only the most fun color EVER and I got some killer acclaim from 4 people after not even being in the door at the gym for 5 minutes.  They have an awesome little back pocket  as well as a front pocket where I like to stash my gum and lip balm (pertinent to every workout).  The fabric is soft on the skin and no pilling occurred,  WOOP!  Good looking & fun...sounds like my kind of clothes!

Next up we have in the matching 'Violet Twilight' color, the U & Me Bra.  I really love this bra.  It is super comfy, no parts that dig into my sides and once again the material is soft on the skin.  The only thing I was wishing for was inserts in the bra.  Maybe it is just me, but I would feel more covered, I guess is the word, with the padded inserts.  

Next up we have the TICKLE ME TANK in the color 'Coral Pink'.  Now almost everyone that knows me knows how much I detest the color pink.  But this is SO not pink and is the most AMAZING coral color.  It makes me just want to run someplace tropical and get a tan!  The color pops,  it is totally comfy on my body, with just enough fabric to hang perfectly and in all the right spots.  No chafing occurred or pinching and the bra is basically the same as the one pictured above, only made into this fabulous top!

And the last piece I want to talk about is the RUN JUMP 'N PLAY CROP.  The color I am wearing is Grey Cavier and honestly every girl should have something grey and wonderful in her fitness wardrobe.  After all, grey IS the new black!  ;-)  I love these and they have basically the same features as the leggings but in a cropped version.  They are super comfy, loving the waist line and they do wonders for the boo-tay and the quads.  Oh yeah!.  

Over all YOGASMOGA gets two HUGE thumbs up from me.  I will buy from them again and I am already checking out some colors like Crimson Rose and India Blue (OHHH..I need this in my life) to add to my fitness wardrobe.  

One other fun fact:  For every purchase you make, you earn SMOGI BUCKS which you get to redeem on future purchases.  This is such fun!  Hey who doesn't like saving some cashola?  

Thanks YOGASMOGA for being so awesome and letting me put your clothing to the test!  You, in fact, ROCK!

Focus T25 Challenge part of an amazing experience!!

OK, so what is all this kafuffle you have been hearing about this Focus T25?  Well, let me lay it out for you.

Starting July 29th, I will be hosting a group for a new program from Beachbody called Focus T25. It is a 10 week, 5 days on/2 days off per week program. It is mostly HIIT and the workouts have no breaks, just do it, GO TIME,  in that 25 minute time frame. There are modifications to fit every fitness level. The program is paired with Shakeology, which is a phenomenal nutrient dense shake, that you may heave heard about. They are made to enhance each other.

You will work hard, you will sweat like never before and if you stick to the program, follow the nutrition plan, you are going to come out of it 10 weeks later, a more fit and much healthier person.
This program has taken Beachbody by storm. It's a fabulous time to say hey, I was one of the first people to do T25!  I will be your coach for these 10 weeks and can help you stay motivated and consistent!

Think you've got time for that?

Reply to this post or email me at  If you want to purchase, go here: Focus T25 Challenge Pack then email to tell me you have ordered.

This will change your life!

The best is yet to come.

The past year has been a trying one for me physically and emotionally. I struggled with a broken arm for months and I still have limitations, but I am getting stronger and I WILL surpass where I was before.  That is my goal.  My dad also died, leaving me in a crappy place mentally.  I didn't give a shit, literally, about a whole lot for a good long time.  My drive was gone, I questioned everything in life at that point.  Was this it?  Was this all there live your life and then in an instant it is gone?  I am still working on this and I am getting better too.  I had to heal both my insides and outsides here.  I was a hot mess.

Fast forward to a year now.  I am excited about life again.  I have drive and passion and I am making plans for my future that scare the bejeebus out of me.  But it's a great feeling!  I wake up with purpose and a vision for what I want.  And I won't stop til I get there.

So I am just finishing up my final week of Body Beast.  This program taught me a lot.  I followed the nutrition like never before in any training schedule.  I was adamant about doing it right, lifting heavier, making changes in my body.  And I did it!!  I have yet again switched the ole body parts around.  I have added muscle to my frame and I got my arm back almost to where I was before.  When I started lifting again I could only lift a 5 lb dumbbell with that arm.  I am using 30's today.  Improvement?  HELL to the yeah!  When I started Body Beast I could only do pullups and chinups with my assist.  I still need the assist for pullups, but oh yeah this week I eked out 5 chinups in a row UNASSISTED.  Progress?  Shaaa, yes!!!!

So now what?  Where am I going from here?  Well I have my plans laid out.

As some of you may know, I talked about doing a fitness competition.  I have next spring in mind for that.  It is something TOTALLY outside of my comfort zone, but I think I have what it takes.  I never in my wildest dreams thought those words would escape from my lips:  "I am going to do a fitness competition".  Yes, it seems somehow completely insane yet perfectly normal all at the same time.  I WILL do this.

I have to up the level of fitness yet again.  I know full well the scope of what I am getting into. I have been actively involved in research for almost a year now.  I am doing my homework and I am not afraid (ok I am, but fear is good!).

I know for some people, this will bring mixed feelings towards me.  I know full well the effects I See Fit People has on the public and this move is something that not everyone is going to appreciate.  This is where I come to say that it's ok.  You don't have to like what I choose.  And it's ok if you think I am a little insane.  I am fine with it.  Sanity is highly overrated.   It is something I want to do for me and no one else.

But do NOT for one minute think that I will forget what it is like to be the girl that has that extra weight on. Or that I don't remember EXACTLY what it feels like to be at day one of learning how to run, or lose 30 pounds, or change my eating habits.  Because they are as fresh today as they were back at day one.  For me, this again WILL be my day one.  And I am still here every day, AS ALWAYS to help you guys out and hopefully keep inspiring you to do more too!

 It just means that ISFP will be involving new ideas and that I am growing and changing.  I hope you will cheer me on during this process, because honestly, I am scared to death and I could use a cheerleading squad! 

I will be doing a program called Achieving Prominence, which is put together by Ashely Horner, an amazing figure competitor & Triathlete.  I am also going to add to that mix Focus T25, Beachbody's newest HIIT program that releases in June/July.  It will take me to a level which I believe will ready me for competition so I am going into it with a solid foundation.  I don't mind hard work at all when it comes to fitness.  This program has a well rounded regime that I think suits my style.

Having said all this I simply ask for your support.  Thanks for taking the time to read this, as always.

The best IS yet to come.

The Ultimate Sandbag Contest

We have a really fun and easy way for you to win yourself an Ultimate Sandbag.  Just take a watch of the video below to get some ideas and listen at the end for what you need to do to enter!

I have had mine for several years and I LOVE it and use it almost every workout. It is an awesome investment!! The handle broke during the workout, but you can only imagine how much abuse this thing gets, so to use it pretty much daily, has fared out well!
