I Eat Glitter For Breakfast

You know that silly little saying—

I Eat Glitter For Breakfast? {{ Okay okay. I know the mug says eat cake for breakfast– just pretend that it has glitter instead of cake! }}

Well- I feel like that should be every woman’s motto. There is something about it that really just perks me up and makes me change my mindset to be AWESOME everyday. It’s kind of like wearing a cape. Like a reminder to be the best superhero that I can be for myself and for my family… everyday.

Not striving to be perfect. Not striving to be someone who I’m not. But to be ME. And to love ME first so that way I can be the best version of me for everyone else! Does that even make sense? I hope this explains it!!

Do you feel like you know who you are? Like really know. Or do you feel like you have been trapped inside of a label for so long that you’ve lost yourself completely?

Are you a mom. A wife. A friend. A mentor/business woman. Do you wear many hats? Do you feel like you spend so much time filling other peoples’ cups that you do not take the time to fill your own everyday?

I used to be this person! I used to say- I’m a wife! I have to do wife things… and I would never take ME time. Then I became a mom– and then my baby came first for everything… and I hate to say it- at times.. too many times the baby came before my husband too. Then came baby #2 and it got even worse. I felt like I was in a constant spiral of cooking, cleaning, diapers, nursing, bath time, bedtime, etc that I never STOPPED…

Until one day. I did stop. I looked in the mirror and I did NOT recognized the woman staring back at me. Val had been gone for so long that I didn’t know if I would ever come back.

That’s when I made a CHOICE. A difficult and sometimes a very unbelievable choice— to start changing my mindset. To start putting me first. To start saying NO to others if it meant jeopardizing my priorities. I started putting MYSELF FIRST!…

And oh my gosh. Was that scary!!

I told myself this everyday:

√ 1 workout won’t fix you 

√ 1 week of clean eating won’t make you healthy 

√ 1 personal development book won’t change your mindset forever.

Do it all daily. Everyday. Never stop. Never skip. Just start to change. Never. Give up.

And then I started to see and feel changes. I felt better and realized that he trio is fail proof—> if you apply it! because I did!

Give yourself a gut check.

Are you going to give this your all- or are you going to float by on autopilot and make excuses?

Start the change to find YOU and do something everyday that your future self will thank you for!!

I DECIDED that I was going to exercise, start a career in turning my fitness into a business and being the best mom/wife I could be—-> AFTER putting my needs first for 30 minutes a day to make my mindset solid and my body thankful for the royal treatment!
We all have a choice.

A choice to either let the stress and negative thoughts build up and eat at us—

Or a choice to pray and let it all go! 

A choice to tell YOURSELF that today is a great day! That no matter what- we have the ability to breath in goodness and exhale the bad.

Repeat after me:

I am enough.

I am able to make the most and the best of every day I am given.

I have the ability to wake up and live everyday with happiness.

I am alive and today is a gift.

Remember to stop and smell the roses. Don’t get so caught up in everything that you forget the simple things in life that mean the most. And the fact that you CAN live any life that you choose to create. I am living my DREAMS all because I made a choice to change. A choice to make a difference and it all started with ME! I feel amazing. I am grateful for my life and when life throws me curve balls. 
I eat glitter for breakfast!

Hammer and Chisel- Week 1 Review and Meal Plan!

I am totally in love with the new Hammer and Chisel workout program and I am really pumped about sharing my weekly progress and updates! I hope that it helps you along your journey too!

So I just wrapped up my full first week of the program! I am following the schedule how it is laid out, so I have my rest day on Thursdays right now and it really just helps to break up the week and give my body a little break when it needs it most!

Hammer and Chisel is my jam!

I literally just finished my Total Body Hammer and 10 minute ab hammer workout and I am feeling amazing (and sweaty 😉 ), but seriously I can’t even begin to say how happy I am to  have something fresh and new! It is so easy to get bored with the same old routine and I had definitely hit that boredom plateau over the past few months! I had been traveling a lot, being full time mommy and business owner, house responsibilities and you name it- I was doing it! My workouts are my HAPPY place, but no matter how good I feel afterwards- it was getting harder for me to actually push play everyday because I wasn’t excited about it!

ENTER Hammer and Chisel- BEFORE Christmas! Because I am not one to wait until after the holidays to start to get into shape! NO WAY! Exercise is my drug! My happy pill!! AND it burns calories, so i’m not going to pack on a few pounds just to feel blah and have to do extra work after the New Year! This is my lifestyle so I just do it!

AND!!!! My hubby totally surprised me with new Bowflex Selectech weights that I have been wanting for over 2 years!! So- Merry early Christmas to me!!! I’m in love with these babies already!!

Another thing that I am loving with this program is that it is something new everyday! I am working different muscle groups and I tend to get lazy if I am doing the same thing over and over, but not this time! I can feel changes happening already and I love it! 
The meal plan for hammer and chisel is pretty great. It is easy to follow, no counting calories or depriving yourself of foods you love. It is simply all about balance and moderation. I am doing plan B meal plan because my goal is to build lean muscle. I am not on a mission to lose any weight, just continue to tone. So, when I focus on my food I am looking for things that will fuel me and keep me full! The team beachbody website has tracking sheets that you can find under the get Fit tab and then click on tracking sheets. 
Also a tip- don’t drink your calories! I drink mostly water- i stay hydrated and I make it a point to always have a glass of water next to me! it is so important! I tell my chalelngers all the time that they have to hydrate in order for the body to work properly!!! My mission is to always feel great in my own skin and I want to do the same for all of you! 
Do you need some tips on how to stay on track? Check out my video message for my challengers who are in week 2 of our Surviving the Holidays challenge group. 

Do you need some extra motivation to get and stay on track? Check me out at www.facebook.com/valbfitness. I try to post a few times a day on that page! Make sure to LIKE my page too! I would really appreciate it!
Let me say this- I would NOT recommend Hammer and Chisel if you are just starting out in your fitness journey. If you love weights I would check out Chalean Extreme or the 21 Day Fix first! I can help you with that! Just contact me at valbozzo15@gmail.com and we can talk about what is best for you. 
If you are interested in doing the Hammer and Chisel Workout Program, please complete the application below.  I am currently accepting applications for the January 4th Hammer and Chisel Challenge Group.   Make sure that you link up with me if you do not have a coach.  A coach someone just like me that can help you with the workout program, with staying accountable, on track and focused on the results that you want.

How To Start Your Own Fitness Business

NOW ACCEPTING NEW MENTORSHIP APPLICATIONS!

2016 is going to bring a whole new world of endless possibilities. Change, growth, commitments and resolutions are going to be all the rage.

Will you be different? Will you make 2016- YOUR year?!

Do you want to be your own boss?
Do you want to work from home and start your own fitness business?
What about accountability for your own fitness and helping others change along the way too?

*What started as a way for me to get and stay fit has turned into a thriving business over 2 years.*

I know what it is like to be drowning in debt.

I know what it is like to feel stuck and sorry for myself.

I know what it is like to be far away from family and friends and have to find a way to start fresh.

Now I know what it is like to feel amazing and truly love life.

Now I know what it feels like to go from almost filing bankruptcy to being nearly FINANCIALLY FREE.

Now I know what it is like to have confidence and positivity in my life daily.

Now I know what it is like to earn close to 5 figures a week and GIVE like I’ve always wanted.

I’m starting an online NEW COACH MENTORSHIP training where I will mentor you on a daily basis, host small group video trainings, 1:1 setting as needed to help you learn your business.

Who am I looking for?

You do not need to be a fitness or healthcare professional but you:

Must enjoying helping others
MUST have a positive attitude
MUST be coachable
Be a goal setter and a goal go getter
Determined & Self Motivated
MUST be a leader and grow in your leadership ability
MUST have the ability to dream big and take action
MUST commit to personal development
And the added bonus- get/stay in the best shape of your life.

What I will not tolerate:

Complainers
Those who sign up just to ‘try it out’ and don’t take this seriously.
Excuse makers
Debbie Downers
Those who are not team players
People who don’t want to have fun
Those with a closed minded attitude

This is a JOB and if I can do this- anyone can do this with heart. hustle. passion and belief which is something that I will HELP you with along the way.

COMMIT and I will run your race with you.

You have to be willing to dedicate a few hours a week working online helping other people. And have the understanding that your income is the direct reflection of how many lives you help change.

Be willing to take this seriously and be coach able by following my training, (the exact system I have used to create a near 5 figure weekly income in less than 2.5 years)…your life will be more enriched in every single area.

Everyone has a story, but what they share is only up to them and what you read is only up to you.

Your actions are what determines your future. You can achieve anything you want in life if you just push past the fear and be your own shining star
Here is your chance to join us for a FREE LIVE VIRTUAL WEBINAR coaching event on Wednesday night, December 16th at 9p eastern.

Black Friday Sales Start TODAY!

I don’t know about you, but I am seriously so excited that this week kicks off the holiday season! Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years are my favorite holidays and one of the huge perks- Black Friday Sales! Who is with me?!! I am not one to rush out to the stores at 3 am, but I do know that a good sale is always exciting! So this morning I am kicking off my morning bringing you some exciting sales from Team Beachbody that are starting TODAY! No waiting until after Thanksgiving!

So- what do we have that is worth while? EVERYTHING ON THE LIST!

Insanity the Asylum is always a hit for those people who love high endurance training. Athletes, runners or those who are really looking for a challenge will appreciate this one!

Turbo Jam was my very first program that I experienced! I can remember my mother in law ordering it and bringing it over and we did it together in my living room right after I had my first baby! It was fun and dancy/kickboxing and I really loved the music! So for the fact that the Booty Sculpt and Abs are less than $6- that is a steal! And not to mention that TurboFire- my SOUL MATE WORKOUT (it is a step up from the Turbo Jam program) is marked down to less than $45 is a STEAL! GAH! I’m so excited about these programs for all of you!!

Stalking stuffers, gifts for co workers, your kids teachers, family and more!

I also really love that the Ankle weights and Resistance bands are on this list too! Are you or someone you know doing the 21 Day Fix or Fix Extreme? Do you need some extra resistance! Grab these up while supplies last!!

So really take some time to look at the sales and get your orders placed. It is sure to sell out and it is a first come first serve basis!!

If you are not already my customer, but you are ready to have me as your coach- make sure that you sign up for your free team beachbody account here. 

Do you already have a coach? Please contact him or her for these sales!!

Are you interested in one of my upcoming challenge groups to really be able to have the motivation, accountability and support to achieve results with a program and Shakeology?

Please fill out the application below and I will get in touch with you asap! Thank you so much! Merry Christmas!!

Happy Shopping!!
