The definition of SHINE:

emit light, beam, radiate, gleam, glow, glint, glimmer, sparkle, twinkle, glitter, glisten, shimmer….
When I first started my journey, I knew I would need a word to represent my intentions and my team. After a few months of pondering, it finally hit me early one morning. Shine, yes! The perfect word to explain how this new healthy lifestyle felt. For too long I was lost in the darkness with my health and it felt, well, hopeless. Now that I have the answer and keep pushing for and creating those daily priorities of healthy habits, I feel lighter and brighter.
I believe when you first take care of your spiritual and physical health, everything else is better. It is one of the most important things you can do for yourself AND your loved ones. As mom’s, we can forget to do this so that’s why I’m SO darn passionate about helping other women find their fitness!!
So, as I get ready to do my 30 minute home workout today before the kids are up, I thank God that I have a body that can move and a team of women who support each other. Life is short and we all want to live it well! ? Tank top cred goes to my personal shopper: Matt Rody ?#TeamShine #blessedlife

Weighted Sumo Squats for the Win!
Day 8 // Done. Weighted Sumo Squats. Love the feeling of this move because of the turned-out-toe position. Talk about an inner thigh reconstructor! Operation Get Fit is more of a: Get my booty off the back of my thighs! ? 21 Day Fix Extreme is no joke!
Working our legs burns a ton of calories because they are such large muscles. Just don’t mind me if you see me hobbling around town..they don’t call it an Extreme workout for nothing !
I’m feeling good but still not exactly where I thought I’d be on day 8. You know that feeling of progress that feels so good? Yeah, well I’m still in the “feeling completely out of shape” stage! The cool thing is, I’ve been here before. I know that if I just fall in love with the process, my results will come. Cheers to all us girls that push past our limits and keep our eyes on the prize!
If you want to know more about the containers, watch the last video on this blog post!! Autumn, the creator of 21 Day Fix Extreme, talks about the containers. Great video to watch. Click Here for video!
So, go do some weighted sumo squats and let me know how you feel. Please contact me if you have any questions!
