Over 5 Inches Lost in Waist in 4 Weeks After Trying Everything!

  Over 5 Inches Lost in Waist in 4 Weeks After Trying Everything! " In 4 weeks I have lost 5+ inches from my waist and I haven't felt this good in years. I LOVE your workout and I love kettlebells. It is the perfect workout for me. I have so much fun doing it, I can't wait for the baby to take her morning nap so I can get to work! I have never done a workout that didn't feel like a chore before this."  Patty M.  from South Salem, NY Another new mom reaches out and shares with me her experience with finally finding a workout that not only gives her the results that she wants, but also makes her look forward to it. Everyone has to realize that there are many paths to get to your fitness and health goals. However, to stay motivated and actually enjoy the chosen path is what's most important. If you are bored to tears and  dread the activity that you have chosen you really need to figure out a more exciting and enjoyable avenue for yourself. Otherwise

Living in the Present

 I gave a quick inspirational speech at a meeting this morning.  Thought I'd share it. I have found in all my years of teaching fitness, nutrition, and health, that exercise is a way to live in the present.   Reaching for foods as nature intended is a way to preserve your health and fight off disease.  The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, said: “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”             Let’s all take a moment and slow down.  Make it a priority to spend extra time preparing whole foods, spend the extra time moving.  Doing an activity or an active hobby you enjoy.  Instead of meeting a friend for dinner, meet them for a walk. 

Karyn's Transformation after THREE kids

For the last couple years I have had the honor of working with Karyn Randolph from a distance.  I am amazed with her transformation.  Karyn not only has proven that a mother of 3 young kids can achieve a fit and healthy lifestyle, but she has also been able to take her training to a whole new level.  She is stronger, leaner, and healthier now than she has ever been!  I received this latest email from Karyn. Hi Lauren,    I have been meaning to send you a little update for some time now.  Since 2009 your videos have taken me from a beginner with no experience and almost 30 pounds overweight, to in shape and maintaining 120 pounds and stronger than ever. I am stronger and healthier than I have ever been. I am not sure what to say except THANK YOU!! Thanks to your help with the food plan I was able to finally kick the afternoon Dr. Pepper and candy bar habit. I have learned that I really can take it or leave it with the morning snack, but I MUST have a healthy snack in the afternoon o
