60 day Max out! (1st two weeks)

I am so stinkin' excited to report that I have been getting better and I am already seeing the changes, not to mention feeling stronger, after just TWO weeks of Insanity Max:30!
This program is incredible! I enjoy so many things about it but one thing that I can truly testify to is that the 30 minutes fly by. While you are so focused on your form and maxing out before you's over. I think that the "max out" method is genius because you are so focused on being better than yourself. I love this program, I have never been brave enough to try anything like this, other than 21 day Fix Plyo, but this is nonstop sweat-drenched, heart-pumping action. I can't get enough. I will report my weight loss and inches at the end of month one. I love that it has a feature to be able to lock the modifier on the screen the whole time. Basically, how it works is you give it your all either go full force with Shaun T or follow the modifiers and when you just can't go anymore, when you need a break you stop and take a rest.....that's your Max out time. Then you jump back in when you're ready. 
My favorite workouts are the Tabata ones. 20 seconds hard core pushing and 10 second rests. Amazing. 

If you are interested in this program, let's have a chat. Get more info here or to join my team and start working out today apply here.

Here are my MAX out times for Week 1:
Cardio Challenge - 19:57 (mostly modifying)
Tabata Power - 12:21 (mostly modifying)
Sweat Intervals - 11:50 (no modification until after max out)
Tabata Power -10:20 (no modification until after max out)
Friday Fight - 11:03 (mostly modifying)
Pulse - 13:00 (no modification until after max out)

A little sweaty selfie for ya! 

Here are my MAX out times for Week 2:
Cardio Challenge - 17:30 (full force)
Tabata Power - 27:34  (full force) AMAZING! I more than doubled previous my max out times.  
Sweat Intervals - 7:50 (full force)
Tabata Power - 11:15 (modified)  I was very sore this week it was hard to keep up.
Friday Fight - (full force) 8:50
Pulse -12:45 (full force) & Ab attack - 6:22 (full force)

If you love the idea of being a better, stronger YOU then join me and my team as we MAX OUT!

Let's do this!

Max out!

Good morning! I hope you all are starting your day right. I got my workout in! I did Insanity Max:30 Tabata power for the second time and love it, the first time I did it I maxed out at 12 minutes & 21 seconds while modifying, but today I didn't modify until 10:20, not bad!! I'm loving the intensity of it. I'll be blogging more about it later this week to share my progress with you all. Make today awesome. #iMaxedOut #teamFitforGlory #coachMelissaIvette #musclesareagirlsbestfeature

B R E A K through

Some time ago, at church, my pastor preached about knowing God. I always take sermon notes crazy fast then I have to piece it all together to make sense of it later on. Anyhow, he shared some points that I loved and also realized that I could apply them towards my fitness and health life:

"Small steps create a large effect."

"Breakthrough is a result of constant pressure on something." 

"Rejoice with each step."  

"Full effort full results." 

As I looked over these notes again, I couldn't help but share them with you all. It's inevitable that we will have to overcome things in our life. Obstacles come in all shapes and sizes. But one thing remains true. We can overcome. Through consistency we see the results that we want and we learn the discipline of self - control. I don't know about anyone else out there, but I could use a lesson or two on self-control in a few areas of my life....

Just like when you workout you don't see results overnight but rather overtime. So why do we so often expect life to change so quickly? We give up on ourselves or others too soon. 
Are you trying to achieve some things?
Give it time.
Are you working on fixing some relationships?
Give it time.
Are you trying to make changes? 
Give it time. 

After all, every step closer is just that...a .... step....closer. So rejoice and be grateful through each step, I'm sure that you will find you are becoming better & stronger. 
You may not always like the process but I am certain you will like the results. 

Thanks for letting me get this off my chest. You Rock!

I am excited to start a new fitness program called Insanity MAX: 30 and I am thrilled to see the new results that will come along with the struggles. Because lets be honest, you can't have results without a few struggles, right?

Follow my journey here or on my FB page H E R E

New level, new devil. 
Don't be intimidated, go on and get your BREAK-THROUGH!

So this new year, what are you willing to endure in order to grow?

Please share below.

oh for grace to trust Him more

Have you ever had one of those "come to your senses moments"? When you realize just how far God's mercy and grace extends? I've been reflecting lately on His powerful hand of protection.
I've made lots of bad choices, put myself in some scary situations but by God's wonderful grace I'm still here, still standing. 
I don't know how or why he loves me so much but He does and guess what...? 
He loves you too! 
Every single bit of you. 

I've read it before, "Grace is when God gives us what we don't deserve. Mercy is when God doesn't give us what we do deserve." 

I've had this old hymn in my head that last few days:

’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”

  • Chorus:
    Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
    How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
    Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
    Oh, for grace to trust Him more!
Oh, how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!
Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.
I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.

Isn't it crazy that we need grace, (we need help) to trust God more
How do you feel about that?
What do you think about it?


what 2014 has brought me!

Knowledge! It brought me K N O W L E D G E!
 In all your getting, GET knowledge. 

Psalm 119:65-67

"Do good to your servant
    according to your word, Lord.
66 Teach me knowledge and good judgment,
    for I trust your commands.
67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,
 but now I obey your word."

At the beginning of last year I asked God to change the direction of my life. Not that it was bad, I just knew I was called to more. I knew that I needed to change though. I knew it required work and for once in my life, I was not afraid of that. shocker, i know!

2014 was an amazing year of growth and change for me. I am a testimony that if you are willing to push yourself and put in the work, you can and will achieve ANYTHING!
So I wanted to share some of the biggest lessons that I learned from 2014.

Things I've learned from 2014:

-Fear is FAKE! It's a preconceived notion to keep me bound to anything less than greatness. It's a made up scenario in my mind of what COULD happen, and it doesn't get to hold me down anymore. 

-Failure & change are inevitable but growth, well, that's optional!

-I get to decide the direction of my future and how it will work, yes we are all subject to God's plan, but we can choose to enjoy it and agree with it.

-Grateful people are happy people! It's not happy people who are grateful, although we tend to believe that. Always be GRATEFUL!

- I get to decide how successful I am by how hard I work. No one else can determine my success unless I let them. I'm in charge of me. That's a given but seriously, it's necessary to grasp that and I'm learning this truth more every day. 

-Dare to do something so big that if God doesn't intervene you'll fail. Going for failure so when you succeed you'll be all the more stronger, confident and unbreakable. Failure is your friend! It makes you stronger and helps you get to your actual goals. Go fail! I had never heard that, ever. Knowing this has changed me.

-Define your dreams and your goals to the very last letter. Without the specifics God can not get all the glory. 

-Your dreams can come alive. See it. Spell it out. Say it. Then get it. 

-What you speak is what will be. Speak Positive. 

-I was made to inspire others. I believe that on some level we all are, but, for me there is this deep down burning passion to see others come alive through inspiration. I want everyone that I know and love to reach their greatest potential so I commit to helping them achieve that. 

Love you all!!! XOXOX
