I can’t get over how things can change in a heartbeat!  The last time I wrote, I was just in the beginning stages of Asylum and so much has happened in such a short time!

Let me start by saying that I am officially putting my Beachbody business into “overtime”. I was able to quit my “day job” and focus solely on this wonderful world of fitness, health and motivation.  Can you believe it took me moving to another country to make this huge decision?

Yes, I am in South Australia, as I write this today.  My husband, Ben, my children and I had been toying with the idea to move here for quite some time.  How does one make a life-altering decision?  Well, we talked and planned for almost two years and the plans changed quite frequently.  I think the kids were numb to our daily or weekly change of plans and began to just move along with their daily business.  

Life isn’t easy anywhere, these days.  But the recession in America is a huge wake up call to be accountable to our time and money, more than ever!  Making a foolish decision can be detrimental to a family these days and it was weighing on us heavily.  Our plans turned out to be to sell our cars and most of our older possessions; then put the rest into storage.  What a rush!  I’ve only ever lived in California; so this was an extreme change for me.  Yet, I felt oddly calm.  

I’m sure most people dream of selling it all and switching gears in life!  This was our chance.  The great thing was that our kids were on board to take the chance with us!  I had imagined terrible arguments about school, friends, etc…but this didn’t happen.   Instead, we packed up and flew here, into another winter!  

We have since moved into a furnished penthouse-style apartment and are going through our days with so much to do!  I continue to work my business online and through skype for phone calls.  Ben is doing what he can online and around the area.  We have family and friends nearby and have been visiting with them throughout these weeks.  It has been wonderful.

I can’t say that we will decide to stay for sure or not but no matter what; I’m truly happy for this awesome experience.  Who else can “up and leave” with a family?  No matter what the final verdict will be; I know our family will remember this adventure quite fondly for the rest of our days!  

What about my fitness plans?  If you’ve been following along with my blog or websites, you should know by now that I would never let my momentum slide!  I packed up all of my programs, booklets, shake packages and laptop and brought it right with me!  Each morning, I start the day with my Asylum program and then I hit the work scene and daily tasks.  So much freedom and I’m still staying accountable to what is most important to me!  

My 30 day Asylum plan had concluded just prior to us leaving America and I’ve since completed the Asylum/Insanity hybrid program for another 30 days.  Let me just say that if you haven’t done this plan yet and want a true challenge; this is it!!  If you’ve seen Insanity, you know it’s “INSANE”!  And if you haven’t seen Aslyum yet, it just builds upon the strength and stamina you created through Shaun’s first program.  Now, put them together….


I am in the last two days of my recovery week.  What’s next?  Well, I guess I can’t leave out the next hybrid plan; Asylum/P90X!  I actually am looking forward to this more than the previous plan because I love strength training!  It’s my favorite…you know, like when you go to work out and have to decide which you’d like to do first.  Strength training or Cardio?  I always choose strength; which is why I prefer doing cardio in a group setting for the energy around me.  

That brings me to my final point I’d like to share with you now.  P90X 2…
It’s coming!!  I’m so excited for it; and figured I may as well do the P90X hybrid with Asylum so my body is prepped for the second phase!

What do you think?  Are you game for this next challenge?  Do you need help just getting started somewhere?  Or maybe you’re in between plans; whatever it is, let me know.  I’d love to stay connected with anyone who is serious about truly changing their life and body.  

This is not a quick fix or a temporary “gig”.  It’s a life long goal and I’m freeing up my time to help work with you for success!  If I can bring all my family and “stuff” over 7,000 miles away from where I’ve always lived; you could surely start and maintain a fitness and meal plan!  Let’s get started today.  Message me!

Get fit or get out, right?
