Shift Shop Review 2018 | A Mom’s Weight Loss Transformation!
I just completed three weeks of Shift Shop Proving Grounds and had to share some of the moves with you. It was a nice break up from what I had been doing. The markers and tracking system Chris, the trainer, put together was a nice challenge. Each week went up in time by 10 minutes so I had to plan accordingly. The strength workout were by far my favorite part. The cardio workouts needed a little more space than I have in my workout room so that was a downfall.
I wrote motivational quotes on each marker and loved everything he said about pushing through the hard to find a deeper level. When our bodies get tired, that’s when our minds and souls need to take over. He would say the perfect reminder at the perfect time during the workout which is always needed. The Proving Ground workouts didn’t change the entire program but I liked that part because then I could track my numbers and see if I could do more with the time I had. By week three, my numbers were higher which I was proud of.
I wouldn’t say this is my favorite program but maybe that’s because I had already done a round of the original Shift Shop and it was very much the same. What I will say is, his strength workouts are such a perfect blend of cardio and weights that I will go back to Strength 35 and 45 if I have a free day between programs and need a good workout I’ll enjoy. With over 800 workouts at my fingertips, I love discovering new favorites to revisit!!!

Quick Hair Updo Tutorial for Date Night
Do you ever feel like you wear the same hairstyle to every event? That’s me and I’m over it! To style my longer hair, I’m always thinking braids but this half up, half down style is actually something I could get into. It feels dressier and with the little techniques used by my hair bestie, Carine, looks dressy, too! Perfect for the Holiday parties we have coming up!!
Having a volume spray helps get the hair ready to style and this one is my favorite: VOLUME SPRAY IS HERE! It smells amazing and also gives the right lift to my heavy hair! I love it on days two and three of not washing my hair to bring the volume and prevent the flat “dirty hair” look. Did I mention it smells amazing? I’m such a sucker for the good smells!
With all the tricks of wrapping the ponytail and bobby pins, you’ll be sure to feel put together and even more glamorous than ever! My favorite part is how leaving the sections of hair in the front adds the spice!
This hairspray is perfect to finish off any style. I’ve used it for years and it not only smells great (see, told you), it adds a good amount of shine to the hair. I prefer the medium hold version found here: MEDIUM HOLD HAIRSPRAY IS HERE!
More hair tutorials in different styles to come so stay tuned!!
