Shoot Location

I will get to my thoughts about an exercise plan for 2017 in just a moment…
but first a word about this shoot (above).
If you look closely in the pictures, you’ll see some cattle in the background of some shots.
It’s a cattle ranch in south Texas (close to Mexico).
For those that don’t live in Texas, this area close to the border is VERY dry and desert-like with almost no trees.

My Fitness Journey

If you are new to my site, I’ve been devoted to Tracy Anderson for several years now.
You can read ALL about it here (with before and after pictures.)
If you are interested in trying it, I also share my advice for beginners.


Basically, I’m on YEAR 3 of the Tracy Anderson Method “Continuity” program.

2017 Workout Plan

Step One | Pick a Workout Routine

I’m sticking with the Tracy Anderson Method “Continuity” program YEAR 3 because:

1) | I already paid for the DVD’s…
2) | I feel like I’m on this body engineering journey with her ,and I need to see it through
3) It works
4) I can do it at home
5) I don’t sweat while I’m doing it so I don’t have to shower afterwards, which saves time

If you want to try Tracy Anderson click here for my suggestions on where to start.
Also, I don’t like Tracy’s workout music. I almost always MUTE it and play my own.

Step Two | Find or Plan a Motivating Event

I am one of those people that needs a goal.
I liked running because there is always a specific race you could train for.
When you work out at home, it’s a lot harder to motivate. There is no race that you’re training for.
SOOOO… my husband doesn’t know it yet, but I’m going to insist on a beach weekend.
There is nothing like a trip to the beach to motivate you to get your butt in gear…Literally!
If there is an actual date on the calendar… it helps.
It helps me…anyway. 

Step Three | Set a Schedule

Sometimes I go through these phases where I say to myself…
“I’m just going to work for a few hours, and then workout in the afternoon.”

Whelp, that almost never works…and I’m guessing it won’t for most of you either.
My plan for 2017 is to workout in the AM, and get it done right after both kids are at school BEFORE I start working.
I always feel better if I get a workout in… and I think it will help productivity too.
So, that’s the plan. THE plan. I might say it a few more times in order to convince myself.
I’m also going to try and exercise FIVE days a week.
This might not happen when I travel, but I’m really going to try and stick with this plan. 

Step 4 | Make Sure You Have Cute Activewear

Even though I’m at home, and only my family sees me, I still like to wear cute activewear.
There are SO many wonderful options…
The pants I’m wearing above are by Zella.
I find Zella runs a bit large. I suggest sizing down.
Shop Zella at Nordstrom Rack Here.

I also really love Old Navy workout pants
Athleta also has wonderful options.
And, then of course…there is the gold standard, Lulelemon.
The fit of the Lulelemon pants is unlike any other.
If you are looking for something modern and fashion forward check out Sweaty Betty.

Step 5 | Find a Buddy or a Community

Finding a group or workout date can really help keep you on track.
You will feel like a real butt head if you cancel on your friend.
With a group, there is a sense of community.
You may look forward to seeing the other women in your group.

Since I workout alone, I would love to develop a community of TA fans.
People I can share experiences and thoughts with…
If you are a TA fan, PLEASE comment below.
I would like to start a Facebook group!

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Don’t forget to subscribe to my exclusive newsletter.
Thank you SO much for stopping by!

  1. Love this! Your TA journey and pictures are such great motivation! I’m on Day 26 of Metamorphosis Omnicentric. Just requested to join your FB group! Thanks!

  2. Yes to the Facebook group!! I’ve decided to exclusively do TA workouts this year! Even just posted my before pics ? Let me know if you make a group! Do you have a TAM insta?

  3. I love TA! My body is very similar to yours, and I need to do workouts that keep me long and lean. I also do Physique 57 and Barre 3. I would love to be in on a challenge!

  4. I would definitely be interested in joining a TA Facebook group Erin! I love TA (thanks to you) but staying motivated is my biggest challenge. I also think a fitness challenge vlog would be awesome! Just a thought…if nothing else, hearing about your fitness journey is a motivator!

        1. That doesn’t work. I tried adding “stephanie williams” but I have no idea if it’s you. Can you confirm? I think we have to be ‘friends’
