It's a BOY!

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Hey friends! It's been a while since I have posted here on Sparkpeople but I wanted to share that we found out our 3rd is going to be a boy! Looks like I will remain the princess of the Failla household!

I'm 17+ weeks and have been doing good with my workouts and eating, I'm not going to gain the 50+ I did with Zac! I've already had to modify my workouts to keep myself injury free but that is to be expected. With Les Mills Pump I have just lowered the weights and am skipping the lunges, and then I can still do modified TurboFIRE and Combat!

If you love a cute ultrasound pic here you can see it!

I hope you are having a great day!

    Congratulations, Sarah! I'm so happy for you and it's actually so good to hear from you! So, another boy on the way? And he really has amazing legs! As if he has been doing Les Mills Pump with mom!
Wishing you all the best!

Dinner at Chalene's House!!!

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

I can't even tell you what an amazing night I had at Chalene's house. Inspired beyond words to keep helping people in their fitness journey and just in awe of a woman who has done this for so many. For those who follow my wordpress blog there are many more pictures on there and my full thoughts on the night!

If you are struggling with your fitness goals then drop me a message on here and I would love to help you brain storm some ideas to get you where you want to be. It's a journey and a process, but it will happen for you! I still have days that I don't want to workout or eat junk I know I shouldn't, but it's the accountability of friends that keeps me in check.

I hope you have a great week! :-)

    Ah Taygrl I went to camp 2 years ago but didn't make it this year! Hopefully next year I will again. With moving back to the US things were so crazy but I felt the same 2 years ago, couldn't believe it was live after all the days doing it at my house! @trixieruns it's I'll have to check yours out as well! I found a great one today and love when I find new blogs to inspire me!

LesMillsPump, Personal Trainer, and PICS!

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Hey friends!
It's been SO long since I have written! Life has had many changes in the last few months so I've been just trying to keep up with everything!

1. We moved back to the USA after almost 5 years in China! Yeah that's a transition that needs time to process. Not only for myself, but to help my boys process this huge change.

2. I did PASS my Personal Trainer Certification test last month!!!! That was a goal I had been working on for a while!

3. I started Les Mills Pump after gaining like 5-7 pounds after just being back in the USA for about a month. The results are amazing and I'm mixing it in with TurboFIRE still! You can't really compare it to ChaLEAN Extreme as it's a totally different beast but I would say I love it! Which is a lot coming from a Turbo/Chalene GIRL!!!

4. I haven't been blogging on here but am keeping up with my blog. (If you call 1x a week posting 'keeping up' lol!)

Sometimes pics say more than words! Here are a few of the last few months!

Getting ready to do Les Mills Pump!!!

My sweet loves! (And I'm obsessed with Instagram if you can't tell these are all from there!!!)

Working out in my sister's room. We've traveled over 9,000 miles since June 1st! Yeah, I'm tired and ready to be settled for the fall!

And one more working out! Totally getting stronger and leaner with Pump!!!

Keep pushing for your goals. I know the summer is CRAZY for so many and so now with the kids getting back in school and life returning to a more normal schedule get some friends together and start AGAIN!!!

CLX, c25k, and a GOAL ACHIEVED!

Friday, February 17, 2012

Hey friends! I hope you are having a great week! I've been good with hitting my workouts this week!

I did c25k- MON/WED/FRI
ChaLEAN Extreme Burn 1,2,3- SUN/TUE/THURS

(I still need to get some abs in but that's all as I'll have SAT be my rest day.)

My body is feeling tight and I love it! I just keep telling myself summer is coming, and then I'll be able to feel good in t-shirts with my hot little muscles! (And we will be at the beach a ton! A fun trip to Maui is happening in June!)

How are you doing with your workouts?

On a personal note, this week I hit a goal I had set for myself back in November!!!!

I know this doesn't mean anything to you (just a word!) but to me being a diamond coach shows that I have been efficient in helping others get fit!

How are you doing with your goals? If you are having a hard time have you thought about breaking the goal down into small parts? You know sometimes we hear people say if your goal isn't big enough you won't see it happen...and I think that we should dream big. BUT I also think that when I goal is SO big and is something we have never done before we can find ourselves paralyzed and stuck even with all our great intentions of achieving it. So break it down into the steps you know are possible and start there!

Like I said, have a great weekend! I'm still on a high from getting to be a diamond coach, but will keep heading on towards the other goals on my list! (And my studies to be a personal trainer are still happening, I've just had to go at a slower pace than originally planned!)

Do you have a goal that seems overwhelming right now? What are 3 small things you can do to get moving forward with it?

- Sarah :-)

C25k with a little TurboFIRE and ChaLEAN!

Friday, February 10, 2012

Oh my goodness! Was my last blog post really over a month ago? One of the main reasons is that I have finally got my new wordpress blog up and running and have been spending a TON of time working on learning about it. Then add in Chinese New Year and it's like I just got gone with what your Nov/Dec was like! But...I haven't been taking a break from working out!

I have actually started the c25k with a couple friends after a lifetime of being VOCAL about how much I hate running! LOL! I'm still not sure how I feel about it and Turbo is my love, but it has been fun to do something with friends and that was the change I needed to get through the month of Jan which is just so cold! (Here's a post about it! Running for the first time in 10 years!!!

Tonight I'm making a schedule for myself mixing in the c25k, TurboFIRE and ChaLEAN Extreme. Sounds fun! I know 12 weeks of ChaLEAN Extreme will get me to mid- MAY! Can you believe that? And that will be the perfect time to show off my hot muscles! Just need to keep that in mind while wearing 5 layers of clothing bc it's so cold out!

I hope you are all doing well! I connect with many of you on FB so feel like I haven't been too far out of the loop! But for those of you who are not over there, I'm still alive and well! Moving forward in not only my fitness goals but personal ones as well! I know some of you in the turbo groups are just starting your journey with Chalene and I am excited for you to fall in love with it as much as I have and see your life changed along with your body!

Have a great day!

Sarah :-)
