“Me” Photo Session | Contest Info

9 Jan

I have a lot of ladies asking me for details on the contest… so here is a whole new post on just info about the contest.

Would you like to have a session just for you!?

A beautiful picture of a new you, a new body, a happier you!!!!

This year Im offering a FREE photo session to the lady who impresses me the most! Its not who loses the most weight or inches… its who works the hardest! If you would like to be considered, I need a now picture of you (front, back and sideways – take it with your phone if its easier! I don’t care for quality)… send it to  [photosbyrenata (at) gmail.com] and write a little bit about yourself and your motivations!

The amount of weight you lose is NOT the win factor, however, the more you lose, the more you’ll impress me! :)

You must agree that after the contest is over I will display your before and after pictures.

Your photo session will consist of only YOU!

30 minutes at Deerfield Beach and edited photos on disc.

You’ll have until January 20th to send me your entry. You’ll have 6 months to work your behind off!! I’ll keep you posted on the date of the end of the contest.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me before submitting your entry!

If you know someone that would like to be part of it, let them know!

Why am I doing this?

1. Because I want to support you and give you a motive to be healthy and happy!

2.Because once I was that woman who lost tons of weight and wanted to celebrate myself by taking professional pictures of a new me, and circumstances didn’t allow me, so now I want to give a special lady the opportunity I didn’t have!

Stay healthy!

Body Back | Day 2

4 Jan

Forget about my post last night! What I thought it was just a “Let me show you whats ahead of you” class… Was actually a “Im just tickling you” class!

Seriously!!!!!!!! Today I questioned myself tons of times “What did I get myself into!??????”

Day 2 of Body Back was kick A**!!!! It started with a 1/4 mile run [boy! Im so outta shape! Stomach hurts! Legs hurt!] and this was just the start!

Mats on the floor… 5 pounds free weights, exercise ball, bosu ball, water bottle and towel… Ready! Set! Ouch!

It was no joke! But I loved the push! The instructor (Ivie) was amazing!

To end… A little meditation! It closed our class with golden keys! A little room spray with some type of herbal sweet flavor totally surprised us! Thanks Ivie! That was awesome!

Heres my red face after the class! Lol

Body Back | Day 1

3 Jan

Lets just say… WHAAAAAATT?! (its a good what!)

Before I can start my post I have to explain what “BODY BACK” is.

Here is the best explanation of it… taken from the Stroller Strides website.

“Body Back® is the newest program release from Stroller Strides’ founder Lisa Druxman. It is a results-based workout designed specifically for moms. Whether they just had a baby or had a baby twenty years ago, it will help any mom get her body back. Most importantly, it will help moms unlock their personal possibilities in an inspiring and powerful environment.”

Also according to their website “The workouts have been clinically proven in a University research study to help moms lose the weight and get their pre-baby body back.”

Needless to say… IM GETTING MY BODY BACK!

Today was our DAY 1… got there 5min till, most ladies were gathered around the instructor who had a SCALE and a MEASUREMENT TAPE! [you would think most people would be on the other side away from the scale… not these woman! They were ready!]

We all got measured… and posed for photosBYRENATA <~~ got that?

Time for introduction… wow… you don’t realized how many other moms struggle with the same issues you do until you are in a group like this! Thats why I think this groups will be soooo supportive of each other and so awesome for me!

Some were repeats… ladies that have taken the Body Back class once or twice… lost tons of weight and look great! Others… like me… were there for the 1st time, taking everything in!

Then… off to a little kick in the butt… I have a feeling this was just a “let me show you whats ahead of you” class! The instructor, Ivie Claudio, was no joke! She kicks butt! :)

Push ups, biceps curl, sit ups and squats…. a whole minute of each! Back to back!

Then… planks! If planks had a dislike button I would be the 1st to press! [I hope I don’t get in trouble for saying this! LOL!]

Well… bring it! Of course I was one of the 1st one to let it go! But Im still standing!

I am IN LOVE with my group of Body Back! I don’t think I could of chosen a better group of moms!

Thanks to all of you moms for being part of this with me! I look forward to our next 2 months experiencing together all the butt kicking ahead of us!

To ALL ladies reading this… keep in mind my contest is ON!

Would you like to have a session just for you!?

Sweet Little Cutie Pie!

It was no surprise to me that little Brooke would be acting all shy [her mom warned me!].

We walked and walked [looking for Dora!] – little Brooke now started liking me… but she still hesitated!

“Come on vamonos! Everybody let’s go!” – Now she’s my BFF! She held my hand, she chased me, I chased her, we laughed, we sweated [trust me! I got a workout! Hubs would be proud of me!], we sang, we danced… she was as sweet as cupcake!
