2B mindset

I am so excited about a program coming out in the very near future!! This program will take the focus off of exercise (which is important for having a body that can move and function freely, BUT we aren’t all ready to start it all at once) and onto FOOD.

Let’s be honest. No one go to a place that they aren’t happy with their weight by eating healthy and not exercising. It’s our diets that get out of control first and foremost. And the first thing we try to do is DEPRIVE ourselves. We count calories, we limit intake, and for some people – it works. But for the rest of us? We cycle on and off of those plans because depriving yourself is HARD.

But there will be none of that with this program. No calorie counting at all and you do not have to incorporate exercise until you’re ready. And guess what? Once you master the 2B Mindset, it’s yours for life. Losing the weight and keeping it off will be second nature — it will be your new reality — and food will forever remain an enjoyable part of your life.

This new program was designed by Illana Muhlstein, R.D. Nutritionist. If anyone has fought the battle, she has. She is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist-the highest standard in the field of nutrition. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Maryland, sits on the prestigious Executive Leadership Team for the American Heart Association, and leads the Bruin Health Improvement Program at UCLA.

Ilana’s early inspirations were the knowledgeable Registered Dietitians that she’d met every summer at fat camp. Once she finally had the chance to become one herself, she never hesitated. Using everything she learned, she was able to personally lose 100 pounds. She’s built a thriving private practice in Beverly Hills, and has helped hundreds of people lose weight happily-and keep it off. Now she’s revealing all of her tried and true weight-loss secrets with the launch of The 2B Mindset program.

This program drops May 2, 2018. If you want to be one of the first to try it out with me – fill out this form! Make sure to select “2B Minset Nutrition Education” from the dropdown.

80 day obsession – half way!

Ok I’m more than halfway but these pics are from day 42. But anywho – I love it so far. I mean it isn’t perfect for me and I haven’t been perfect at it – but I love the results!

Pros –

– Meal plan is LEGIT AF. Tells you exactly what time to eat what and I think that helps. Way bigger changes than eating whenever I can fit it in. And I notice better workout performance when I eat the preworkout meal. Less soreness with post workout meal too.

– Booty day! An entire day of glutes. No, not leg day – that’s a separate day. I love it. My booty has grown so much. Honestly, look

– different workout each day. I never have to watch the same video with the same convos or jokes more than once which is nice. Keeps it fresh.

Cons

– workout length. 40 mins – 1 hour. Guys this is my own laziness. I like 30 min programs. But I know I need to do more for more results.

– meal plan. Yes it’s a pro and con. Was a con at first because I refused to follow it 😂😂😂 now it’s a pro. It’s a bit intimidating at first.

…. that’s really it!

I love the moves. Some of them I’ve never even seen before! Definitely a fun program and worth every second because the results I and the others doing this are seeing are so amazing.

80 Day Obsession Results – day 22

IIght yal I’m on day 22 of 80 day obsession and I haven’t updated ya because a biah been busy. 😂😂.

Let me tell you first and foremost – I have NOT been good on the meal plan. I’m always missing meals or eating the wrong things at the wrong times. But I’ve been killing the workouts and trying to clean it clean.

Oh and the vegna plan? That’s cancelled. I couldn’t. I gave it a good shot but I didn’t want to keep cooking 3 separate meals (1 for me, 1 for LB, 1 for hubs) and I was always cheating. So I figured a perfect plan means nothing if you can’t stick to it and went to the regular plan instead. I’m still doing mostly meatless options.

Anywho, let me let the pics do the talking. These are from last week. I didn’t even want to take these because I thought I’d done so bad with food it would be terrible. But I took them because I noticed how much easier it was to get that same outfit on for my workout.

Of course the waist is stealing the show but my triceps and shoulders also made a HUGE come up

And for an update – here’s a pic from today. Let me tell you – I’m in my PJs and this is a non-supportive tank top (not a bra) soooo don’t mind the saggage LOL. You know I nursed 14 months.img_9907

I’m crazy hype about my results thus far. Youknow I’m an apple shape, so shrinking my middle is a challenge. Literally all my fat goes there. My little booty? solid muscle. Hard as a rock. LOL!

I don’t like working out for almost an hour most days. But you know what I do love? doing a whole day dedicated the glutes. It’s taken my lil booty from ‘it’s got potential’ to ‘iight girl I see you!’02a4530f-bd03-4d99-8c86-c14b7dfad2ce

I acutlaly used to hate these gym shark pants because they showed off my belly pudge and made my booty look flat. But they may be my favorite pants by day 80!

You should probably get your booty into my group. Hit me up and lets talk. Fill out this form for more info.

You better hurry before I complete my transformation to total baddie and I’m too good to answer. LOL! jk jk <3. But do hurry. Summer is coming.

February Fitness Challenge!

Excited to announce that I’m enrolling for my February fitness challenge. In February we all celebrate Valentines day, so in honor of that our group will focus on self-esteem and self love. Too often women focus on working out to get rid of something bad about their body (excess fat, love handles, cellulite, etc) or as a punishment for something they ate. This “do it or you’ll be hideous” attitude is so discouraging over time! And don’t even get me started on these starvation or “no carb, no cheat day, no nothing” fasts/diets. We treat our bodies like we hate them! And in return they get tired, broken down, they start cravimg any and everything – and we give up!

I like to look at exercise and eating healthy as a celebration of my body, and something I do out of love. When you exercise because you love your body, and eat foods that it needs because you want to treat it well – it’s so much easier to stick to a plan and be healthy! No more starving, no going days without eating food groups or even food in general. No more. Through this group we will focus on of course reaching our fitness goals, but also treating ourselves as good as we would treat one of our best friends. No negative talk, no looking in the mirror tearing ourselves apart, none of that.

You’ll have all the tools you need to kick off your fitness journey – workouts, meal plans, and more support than you can even imagine.

I have 10 spots open for new clients, first come first serve. If you’re wanting to go on this journey with me, please fill out this form.

Work At Home Mom – 2 week Check In

Hey yal!

So Ive been MIA. I know most would expect me to actually be bloggin MORE now since I have a new laptop and no 9-5… but not yet haha. It’s January. That’s a busy month for a coach!!! Plus I’m soaking up time with my son.

You can’t be healthy if you aren’t active

Your aren’t healthy if you aren’t active. I don’t care if the doctor said you appear healthy, your blood work is fine. It’s like driving a new car and never getting an oil change, eventually it will mess up the car.

This really gets me because I’m a parent. And as a parent, it doesn’t matter how great you make sure your child eats or how much exercise they get – they are taking their example of what it’s right to do as an adult from you. So then they’ll grow up and eat like you, and avoid working out like you, and they’ll be unhealthy too.

We gotta do better. We gotta do better because it literally takes as little as 10 minutes a day to do a quick workout. It saves tons of money and time to meal prep vs eating processed crap and fast food. It is logical. There’s really no reason to not do it – other than you just don’t feel like it.

Try saying “I don’t feel like setting a good example for my children” and see how that feels. Then maybe you can get up and reclaim your health in 2018.

You know I’d love to help. Hit me up. Tarra.Yvette@gmail.com.

It was my genetics?

My parents and grandparents are/were diabetic (type 2) and I was diagnosed as prediabetic at 24 with an A1C of 6.0. And a lot of people I knew and healthcare professionals told me it was because I was genetically predisposed to diabetes.

They didn’t ask about my diet or lack of activity. I sat at a desk all day for work, didn’t work out, and ate fast food at least 3x a week. I love carbs and sweets too. I was depressed. We moved, had 2 mortgages and I was always alone with just LB.

So I ate and layed around.

See here’s the thing about what I was told. It took all of the pressure and responsibility off of me and blamed my genetics. It made me feel like I was just dealt a poor hand. I mean, plenty of people had a worse diet than me and were NOT prediabetic.

It’s really a crazy way that we as a society look at things. Lets say I drove 95 on the interstate every single day (trust me living in Kentucky a lot of people do). And my parents had both lost their legs in car wrecks (God forbid). and then one day I wrecked and broke both legs and may have to amputate. Am I genetically predisposed to losing my legs? To car wrecks?

Why not? It’s the same logic – plenty of people drive 95 and don’t wreck and lose their legs.

See how stupid that sounds? I wasn’t predisposed to diabetes anymore than I’d be predisposed to a car wreck. The people who weren’t affected like I was are like the people who didn’t wreck – THEY’RE LUCKY. Favored. Blessed. Whatever term you want to use. They’re the exception. I’m the rule.

One day I finally got up off my butt and worked out. I changed my diet. And crazy how my A1C went down to 5.5, no longer prediabetic.

I’m no doctor and I can only speak for myself. But the only thing wrong with me was my habits, not my genetics. My genes control a lot of things – my gender, my skin color, my fabulous hair, my body shape, my big teeth.. I could go on and on. But they were not going to make me diabetic. I was going to make me diabetic.

And if you’re like I was, before you check your genetics – check your habits.
