Update hair routine! – Bleached hair

I realized today I haven’t posted an updated hair routine since since this post. So much has changed from back then – mainly the hair color and cut. 2 years ago I went through a ‘phase’ where I quit doing sets all the time and did wash n goes 80% of the time. It was right after my first devacut. Well, one day I realized I hated them so I went back to sets.

That day was probably the day I needed my hair shaped! Once I got my devacut in June – I knew I was ready to bring back my wash n goes for the summer. I had talked to the stylist about how I had been feeling about mine (undefined, inconsistent, weird shaped) and she let me know that she was fixing the shape (of course) but that the reason I am not seeing the definition I want and seeing so much frizz is because everytime you wash and go your curls get more used to clumping. Takes less time and is less frizzy :).

So I was like.. you know she right. Because when i did them all the time it was easy. So I am back on it. And here is my routine:

How to stay on track while you’re traveling

I travel a lot more than usual now that I’m free from my 9-5 (see more details here). One of the hardest things about traveling is that it gets me all off schedule fitness wise. However, I have figured out a way to not ruin all of my progress or fall off the wagon while out of town.

Coach Summit Recap

Look at me! Since I got organized and started writing in my planner again – I actually write blogs in a timely manner LOL.

So a couple of weeks ago I was in Indianapolis for our annual Coach Summit. Coach Summit is basically like a convention for coaches. We get to do live workouts with the supertrainers (I did a workout with Shaun T last year and this year, plus there’s a superworkout where the shut down a whole street… or 4 and we all workout with all the trainers). We get to hear all the announcements for the next year, PLUS we get training from some of the best. There’s also some awesome speakers there. Lastly, there’s recognition for achievements from the past year with medals and exclusive parties etc etc.

There’s a few reasons I go. My number one reason!? – I love love love the energy of other coaches. I spent a lot of time working in an environment where no one wanted to be at work. So it’s nice to be around the passion and desire that coaches share.

Other than that – I love the training and tips and getting an idea about how product launches will go next year. I also love to see my team! We don’t live in the same area so we are usually limited to phone and video chats.

I didn’t take nearly enough pics but I’m going to go ahead and post them here just because 🙂 lol. Here they are:

LIIFT4: Lift, HIIT, Rest, Repeat!

LIIFT-4-Joel-Freeman-Beachbody-On-Demand..-1

Beachbody Super Trainer Joel Freeman is about to release a brand new fitness program and I’m here to give you the details!! It is called LIIFT4 and is all about building lean muscle and burning a ton of calories in a short amount of time! In just 30 to 40 minutes, 4 days a week, you’ll burn what would normally take AN HOUR AND A HALF at the gym – and you don’t even have to leave your house! You know that’s my style haha. By combining weightlifting and high intensity interval training (HIIT) with a short core routine, you are going to shred and tone your body like never before.

Not only is this program going to be awesome .. it’s SHORT! Guys, I will tough through an hour workout sometimes but short workouts GIVE ME LIFE! and 3 rest days a week? In the summer? YES.

Now on to the details …

  • WHO’S IT FOR? 

Women/Men looking to sculpt and get lean, men looking to build and shred, and anyone with a baseline of fitness.

  • WHAT’S INCLUDED?

You will get a Workout Calendar as well as a Weight Progression Tracker. The program also comes with a nutrition guide to make sure you are eating the right protein, healthy fat, and carb ratios.

  • WHEN CAN I START?

LIIFT4 launches on Beachbody On Demand (BOD) on October 1st, BUT YOU CAN GET VIP EARLY ACCESS NOW which will give you access to the workouts starting on July 16th!! 

31491468_251036505467266_629722212244389888_nFor those of you that take advantage of the VIP early access there is an extra little perk! You will get access to what they are calling LIIFT4 prep-week workouts. These workouts are being filmed like the latest workout program, 80 day obsession, meaning they are filmed live so they are not released all at once. The workouts will be found in the LIIFT4 section of BOD. * Remember, they cannot be accessed unless a LIIFT4 challenge pack/bundle/stand-alone is purchased *

 

As always, I will be hosting a support group where I will walk you through every step of the program along the way. I will be doing it right along side you, virtually of course. My group will start with a week of info on July 2nd and day 1 of actual workouts will be July 11th! Click here to get in! 

NOW HIRING

I’m expanding my team of coaches. I take coaches with all types of goals (financial or just plain finding their purpose, part time and full time, etc). And my door is always open to discuss my business with anyone interested… BUT… I have a very specific type of coach that I am currently looking for.

I am looking for my “Fab5” for the month of July. These 5 coaches are the ones with BIG plans. Who want to do this full time. Who want to not just survive, but THRIVE. I want people who dare to dream BIG. Who want to grow this business to change lives (their clients, AND theirs).

With this program you’ll get an accelerated coach basics course (14 days vs 30) as well as weekly group video chats, 1 on 1 calls and daily check ins.

To be in my fab 5 there are a few requirements:

  • Must want to launch your business quickly with no excuses
  • Want to make a real income, not spare or extra money
  • Ready to leave your comfort zone because you DESERVE MORE

And I also have a preference for people that are mad.

Yes. Angry. Mad.I want the people who look around at their lives and think… I deserve more than this. My family deserves more than this. My kids deserve more than this.  I want mommas that are rushing back to work after ‘maternity leave’ still leaking milk and waiting for their ab muscles to come back together. I want two income households who are still living paycheck to paycheck. I want stay at home moms juggling with 1 car and limited income but daycare costs more than their salary would be going back to work. I want college grads who are struggling to find work and pay student loans. I want people going to work each day feeling like they’re living a lie – like they don’t fit in – like they never will. I want the person leaving at 8 PM to finish the work that someone leaving at 5 PM got the bonus for.

That’s who I want. The angry people.

Because I was one of those angry people. And once you have that fire… you can accomplish great things.

If this is you that I’m looking for, apply here!

Don’t like to drink water? Well – eat it then.

Ok. So yal be complaining, first of all.

I hear the weirdest stuff. First I hear “Oh, I don’t wanna drink my calories!” about drinking a nutritional shake. Then I hear “Ugh I just can’t drink no more water!”

So yal don’t wanna drink calories but you also don’t wanna drink water. Ok. Whatever. You literally need water to lose body fat. The reaction that shirnks fat cells requires water to happen. Also – the signals your body send when you’re thirsty are very similar to the signals it sends when you’re hungry – so you’ll over eat if you don’t drink enough water. Your workouts will suffer. You’ll have headaches. You put yourself at risk for UTIs and kidney stones. ISSA ENTIRE MESS. So you should drink enough water. Which means 1/2 your body weight in oz of water or 100 oz a day – whichever is greater.

Anyways, I just do what I ask – so heres some foods high in water to help yals ole dehydrated behinds get that 100+ oz a day in.

Deva Cut!

Guys. Some days, I’m just a genius. I had one of those days last week. Let me tell you how.

So I was packing up to head to Indianapolis for Coach Summit which is like a big convention for my business. And as I’m packing I also got dressed and unraveled my hair for a braidout. And like I’ve done basically every day for a year – I tried to stretch and shrink and make my hair look like it had some kind of shape. And I thought.. dang – I haven’t had a haircut in 2.5 years. Like a professional one for the shape.

And then on timehop – this pic popped up.

This is the cut I got as a hair model for Deva Curl at a hair show in Nashville.

Made me realize just HOW BAD my hair shape had gotten. I mean – look at it. Just triangular.

Soooooo I got on IG and fb (FOLLOW ME @TARRA.YVETTE) and posted asking for a hair stylist in Indy. And then I got on the devacurl website and checked into devacut stylists. Yal know I had to go view their work because cutting wavy hair isn’t the same as cutting these coils, ya heard? Like, I need to see that you’ve done some hair like mine.

I came accross Brittney at Kurly Koils (check her out, yo) and hit her up on IG and fb lol! Surprisingly – she could fit me in THURSDAY! YAYYYY.
