Leg Day

Screen shot 2012-12-06 at 3.27.09 PM

Hey Sweaty Betties!
Lets get going on a workout today!
I thought legs and butt would be a great focus since #1. Who doesn’t want a more toned tush? and #2. your glutes and your legs are your largest muscle groups so you’ll get much more calorie burn out of doing these exercises!

Why I spent $107.17 on a wallet

Dannys new wallet

I posted this picture on Instagram. The top picture WAS my wallet, the bottom picture is my new wallet.

My zebra print one was a duct tape wallet (a little girl made me, it was cute, I liked it)

However, it was very sloppy, I definitely wouldn’t want to keep money in it, as lord knows what would happen. (LOL)

It did the job, kept my cards in one spot, my ID, etc. I never really cared what anyone thought about it.

I have always had issues keeping cash, in fact, I HATE having cash on me.

I am afraid I will lose it, it will get stolen, etc. and its very apparent, by my wallet, that I don’t “respect” money.
So, last week I had my meeting with my mentor and millionaire, Ali Brown.

Ali started asking me questions about money and she said, “Let me see your wallet.”

GULP.

I never cared about showing anyone my wallet… in fact, I’d even bragged about it before, but sitting in her home.. suddenly I was EMBARRASSED. I KNEW what she was getting at.
I dug in my purse, and winced and uncomfortably laughed as I handed her my wallet (with receipts and cards falling out of it) ugh… (face turning red)
She basically flipped it over and said
“First, get a new wallet.. a NICE wallet.. and keep some money in there”
She also told me to start hanging out with people who have money. (my husband said, “So does this mean we should go hang around the Mercedes dealership on Monday?” LOL)
The reason for all this, and why I’m posting about it,  is simply, a MIND SHIFT.
I understand it, and she didn’t need to explain.
When I was forced to show her my wallet, my duct tape wallet, in the millionaire’s house, I got it.. right then.
I need to stop acting as if there is nothing, that I have nothing, or as soon as I do it’s gone.
I need stop fearing money and need to realize its ok to have money in my purse, in my wallet, in my bank account.
I need to feel ok with DESERVING it.Its a simple concept for me in weight-loss…
I have a client who lost 125 lbs.,  yet he still wore this HUGE gawd awful 3XL shirts! I hated that! Stop dressing like you’re fat!! You ARENT.
I totally GET IT..With money and myself, it was the same thing.
I continued to “wear fat pants” even though I am a successful (or trying to be successful) person.
So…
Not only did I get a nicer wallet… I spent $100 fucking dollars on that wallet!
(This is something I would NEVER do… OMG… who spends $100 on a wallet?!!)
Well I did.
and you know what? I was really comfortable with it, and I LOVE my wallet… in fact, I took this so seriously, I went to every freakin’ store in the mall, from Gucci, to Fendi, to Louis Vuitton and I actually came back to the very first wallet I liked.
This is not to say that ANYONE needs to spend $100 on a wallet.
This was specifically significant for me and some of my personal hang-ups. (and I can tell  you right now, my mother is probably reading this and screaming in her kitchen, “Danyell I can’t believe you spent $100 on a wallet!!!…. its ok mom :) there’s more where that came from)
However, look within yourself.
Maybe its weight or clothing— you don’t deserve nice clothes because you “aren’t there yet” or you only eat cheap food because “you’re just going to poop it out anyway” (LOL but I’ve totally heard this)
Whatever it is.. is there something you are denying or maybe not giving the respect it needs in order for YOU to become a bigger and better version of you?
Hell, I know, not every millionaire has a nice wallet or a nice purse.
It is a reminder for ME. That is all.
I hope you can see where a mind shift may help you get out of whatever rut or block is holding you back :)
Be YOUR best YOU.

Kettlebell & Abs Pyramid SBW#9

The Workout

I flew “home” to Vegas this weekend to attend and work at the Olympia Expo. This is a HUGE event that I have attended every year since 2005. It is the event to see and be seen if you are in the bodybuilding and fitness/figure/bikini world… and guess what? I just did NOT want to be there this year.
Why? you ask…

Well, for one, I’ve already spent two months without my husband this summer and he wasn’t able to attend, so 5 more days without him wasn’t making me happy… but then it was just the overall feeling that everyone was trying their hardest to get noticed. They had dieted for months just so they could spray on some tan and show off their abs for two days and I hadn’t… and I really didn’t care.

 

See, I used to be one of them. I used to talk about the Olympia for months and count down the days, and do extra cardio to look my best and get spray tanned the night before, and show up hoping that I could meet someone who could “get me sponsored” or put me in a magazine. I used to restrict my eating, even on my anniversary because it was the week before!

I have just come to realize that REAL fitness isn’t about dieting for a one-day event. Most people in the real world could care less if I have a 6-pack, and my husband would probably love it more if I had a glass of champagne on our anniversary than doing 2 hours of cardio and going to bed early.

BUT… you know what?! I still had a blast being there, because I have made so many friends in the industry over the years, its always great to catch up , to meet fans and to just remember that some of them are really about promoting a healthy life and I can’t let the few that are there for show ruin it for me. To be honest, the majority of people who have longevity in the fitness industry are real, inspiring people, who work hard just like we do. I just need to ignore the show-offs and get on with my bad self 😉

With all that said now… here is a dang workout video! Boy was I glad to sweat again!!
