Praying For Texas and Houston

There are no words to express our feelings about what is happening to us here in Texas. The rains continue to fall in Houston, on top of what is already wide spread devastation. From the cities of Port Aransas, Rockport, Corpus Christi, and Victoria all the way to Houston, our state is experiencing what is the worst natural disaster ever to hit Texas and possibly the United States in history. It is being called a 1,000 year flood. Harvey has devastated our Gulf Coast and rains continue to pour.  

We have so many chicks in these areas, and we just want to let you know we are praying. We are here to support you. We are a sisterhood, and we continue to send our love, thoughts, prayers, and donations to help. We know that so many people will come together in our great state to overcome this tragedy. Many of our trainers have already headed up individual camp efforts to help, so we urge you to get with your local trainer if you'd like to get involved. 

We will keep you updated on their efforts, and as the rains move out, we will be here praying and helping. Please reach out to us directly, if you are one of our chicks, and in need of support.

Haslet Texas Fit Chicks

Haslet Texas Fit Chicks is hosting a Charity Drive for the Hurricane Harvey victims and first responders. Please bring all of your non perishable donations of: food, clothing, socks, underwear, bras, shoes, toiletries, diapers, baby wipes, formula, baby food, sanitary napkins, blankets, towels etc to bootcamp or my home, and I will personally take everything to the donation center in Dallas. I encourage you to collect from neighbors and friends as well. Thank you and God Bless you!
We ask that you only donate new clothing. Especially personal items like underwear and socks and bras. We are told first responders are running out of these essential items as laundry can't be done.
If you want to donate money instead these are vetted charities where the money actually goes to the victims not to a CEO making millions:

-Minuteman Disaster Response: Minuteman Disaster Response is a first-responder support team comprised of highly skilled volunteers that offer life-saving services at disaster scenes. minutemanresponse.org

-Mercy Chefs: Mercy Chefs is a non-profit, faith-based charitable organization committed to providing high-quality, professionally prepared meals to victims, first responders, and volunteers during natural disasters and national emergencies. mercychefs.com

-The Goodness Project: The Goodness Project works with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) providing life-sustaining necessities directly to those affected by disaster. teamgoodness.com

Want Flat Abs?

The number one thing you can do to flatten that area is to keep your diet clean. Sorry, there's not a magic exercise (although the routine below will target that area) and there's not a magic pill, but eating well 90% of the time and indulging just 10% of the time will get you results! How bad do you want it? If you are willing to make a few changes throughout the week and build on those, you can quickly change your body - and more importantly - how you feel! Here are a few quick tips on getting on a clean eating track....Eating out is extremely difficult when you're trying to change your habits. You have no idea how they really prepared the food, and very few restaurants offer 'clean' meals. If you can prepare your own food for the first couple of weeks, and eat out as little as possible, that will help tremendously. 

Say no to sugar for a week. Analyze the food labels and if it's got more than 11g per serving, nix it. Avoid cream-based salad dressings. A perfectly healthy salad can quickly become more fattening than a cheeseburger when you top with ranch, croutons, cheese....etc. Eliminate alcohol. That will quickly undo the work you've done if you finish the day with a couple of glasses of wine. Check out the calorie content in the number of oz you are drinking, and relate that to a twinkie. Would you eat a twinkie right before bed? Probably not - but your body doesn't know the difference between drinking your calories and eating them :)

Here is a workout routine that will really target those hard-to-reach lower abs. If you're a beginner, do 1 set of each 10-15 reps. Intermediate will do 2 sets of each movement and up the reps to 20-30. Advanced girls do 3 sets of each with up to 50 reps. 

Toe-to-Sky Hip Raise - Lying on a mat, keep hands out on either side for balance and stability, legs vertical and together. Keeping legs vertical throughout, lift hips off mat slowly, then back down. 

Oblique Crunch w/ Elevated Legs - You can use your couch for this one, place legs on top of couch, keeping quads in a vertical position. As you bring your shoulders off the ground, twist to the right and on the next rep, twist toward the left. 

Knee Tuck - If you have a bench or an ottoman you can use that for this next exercise. Lean back, holding the back of the bench - legs straight out. Bring your bent knees up to your chest and repeat

Reverse Crunch - Lying on the bench, hands behind your head holding on for stability. Start with toes touching the floor. Keep your knees bent throughout the movement - allow your toes to lightly tap the floor on the downward move. 

Texas Fit Chicks Boot Camp will teach you more about how to change your body and your life! Our passion is helping women lead healthy lives, and become great examples to our children and families.
