You V2.Β 

How many times have you watched me or someone else do a fitness program from Beachbody and had this thought:

“That looks awesome and I bet it works….but I am not physically ready to go that hard yet.”

Mama friend, let me tell you. I hear you loud and clear. Not everyone is ready for bootcamp or crossfit style workouts. That is just the reality. And for the longest time, I have felt like Beachbody was missing those amazing people. Not intentionally. Piyo and Cize and Country Heat are perfect. And 21 Day Fix. But we needed something else.

And you need to see others who are like you doing this. Enough with the skinny Minnie fitness people who don’t look like they need to workout.

You want something different. You want to see something different.

Here you go. Introducing YouV2.


What is it?

Get ready to party, sweat, and celebrate becoming the new you every time you press play. Expect to have lots of fun with feel good party tunes, an incredible group of ladies of all shapes and sizes, and motivation from your biggest cheerleader and trainer, Leandro (creator of Brazilian Butt Lift!) With 4 cardio-dance routines and 2 body-sculpting workouts, Leandro teaches you easy-to-follow moves, step-by-step. And the best part? He picked songs that will make you want to move and groove to the new version of you. (80’s AND 90’s!!!! Yaaaaaasssss!!) 

Who is it for?

Perfect for fitness beginners. Women who want a fun dance-inspired workout that’s easy to follow, fitness beginners, women who have never really worked out or haven’t in a long time, women who want to begin a life-changing journey to look and feel better, women who want to lose weight but don’t like strict programs or diets, mothers.

Yes. This is for you!! 
The workouts will be 30 minutes long for 5 days a week for a total of 4 weeks. And if you want to keep going with the program, you can do multiple rounds, which personally I love because that builds consistency. And consistency gets you results and transforms you. Which is what you want…..right? 

You can see what I am talking about here on YouTube

OR

You can check out the sneak peek that is happening today only over on Beachbody on Demand. 

If you haven’t tried your free trial membership yet, let me know and I can help you get started. And you will get to try out Youv2 and other fitness programs before making a commitment. Which I know we appreciate. Regular gyms only give you a week.

We will give you 30 days. And in your own home to boot. 

I am so excited to test it out today. If you follow me on IG, I will be doing a Instastory on it so be sure and keep your eyes peeled!

Be a Size You,

Mama, Take Charge & Don’t Be Afraid


After I had my son back in 2009, I definitely felt the pressure to get back into pre-pregnancy shape. 

If you are a mama, I am sure you have felt it.

We are surrounded by articles and tips on how to bounce back in 10 weeks after pushing out a kid or having our bodies cut open to give life. We see celebrities who do it and they say “make no excuses! I work out for two hours everyday!” While they have their nannies or staff watch their children.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a nanny. And even though I don’t work outside the home, I still don’t have two hours to kill it at the gym. I make it work with what I have. Which is why I really love having something like Beachbody on Demand (basically the Netflix for fitness) to help me stay in shape without the added stress of child care or driving to the gym. I like the gym. I like fitness classes, but I can’t always get there. My home is my consistent gym. 

Mamas, what if I could simplify all of this for you? What if, especially on the days that were really hard and busy, all you had to do was push play.

What if, for simply one meal a day, you could have something that would nutritionally fill in the gaps so you didn’t have to succumb to the drive thru….and it made you feel good.

What if, we worked out together virtually. We high-fived each other virtually. We connected and shared together as we worked towards our goals and it came without deadlines. Without stress. Without added pressure.

You can have goals without trying to compete with everyone else. What if you could do you?!


I created my virtual fitness groups to be a place where we can achieve our goals together, and become friends in the process. Where we feel supported and not pressured.

Where our worth isn’t measured by the scale, but by Him who created us. 

My next group that begins on Monday, April 23rd will be that place.

We will workout virtually together.

We will share new recipes and learn together.

We will lift each other up.

We will have at least one meal a day that fills in the gaps nutritionally and gives us a quick win for the day. 

We will have fun. We will see transformation. It will be beautiful. Just like you.

I only have 5 spots open for this next group, so if you would like to be a part of it, you will need to comment below or email me at coachtiffanyharper@gmail.com.

I am so excited to workout with you.

Be a Size You,

CDF recap Week 3


So far, I am feeling really good. These are my results so far from Core De Force. I am really, really happy and my husband has said that he really notices a change all over. 

Something I have noticed too is that when I look in the mirror in my bedroom, I can see clearly all the changes. I can feel them in my clothes as well.

But, because I lack a tan, and I am so dang white, my results are not showing up in pictures as well. Which kind of irritates me but I guess that is what I get for being pale. Lol! I don’t have shredded abs, that’s for sure. But I feel pretty good about them!

*Side note: you do not have to work towards shredded abs in order to feel progress. Whatever results YOU want to work towards, go for that. I have my specific goals and you will have yours. 

Getting ready for my final week of CDF and I am super excited about finishing. This program has been hard for me to push through, honestly. I like it. It is a really good fitness program. But I think I enjoy working out to it LIVE with others than I do at home, if that makes sense. It definitely is not my favorite at home fitness program. But it is good. Just not my favorite. And that is okay. I have quite a few favorites to go back to. 

Right after I am done with CDF, I will be doing Piyo! I am so excited to take a break from intense programs and do something low impact but effective and continue to strengthen and lengthen my body. 

An example of what I did this week with CDF:

​​

On deck for Week 4:

Monday: MMA Plyo & Core Kinetics

Tuesday: Power Sculpt & 5 Min. Core on the Floor

Wednesday: MMA Plyo & Core Kinetics

Thursday: Dynamic Strength & 5 Min. Core on the Floor

Friday: MMA Speed & Core Kinetics

Saturday: MMA Shred & Core Kinetics

Sunday: Active Recovery 

I am really determined to finish this program because, hello, if you finish and turn in your results, you get a free t-shirt. And this girl likes free stuff. Haha!!


I am ready to take on a new week! Let’s do this! My 7 Day Spring into Health challengers begin on Monday and we are ready to kick some booty! πŸ’ͺ🏻

Give Thanks for He is Good


One of the most treasured gifts I have received from a friend was this prayer journal. 

When I first became a Christian, I would journal every thought, prayer, hope, conflict, and dream on fresh pages of notebook paper, or wherever I could find a blank space. I doodled and dreamed as I poured my heart out to the One I was so in love with.

By the time I met Dan, my husband, I had already filled several journals with my thoughts and prayers. A few years ago, I had the chance to revisit them and my eyes nearly rolled out of my head as I read each page. Some of my “needs” were very self centered and centered on relationships with boys. I am embarrassed to admit that, but hey, it is the truth! Ha! (I bet some of you gals can relate. If not, you are fortunate!)

I had shared with you about our family prayer board that we got a few weeks ago, but this little journal pictured above is my favorite. It is all mine. After I spend time in His word, I get to writing. I get to praying. I pray for my husband. I pray for my kids. I pray for the needs of my friends. And it all goes down on paper, along with the iced coffee stains. 

After reading Psalm 136 one morning, I quickly got to work on writing my own Psalm of praise.  Have you ever done that? Have you ever just taken a moment to write out exactly what God has done for you in your life? Yes, we reflect on Jesus’s death, burial, and resurrection, but share more. Write out how He:

*Provided for your family in your time of need.

*When a family member came to know Jesus after years of praying.

*A loved one healed of disease or overcoming addiction or pain.

*A marriage being restored.

*Children who were prodigals returning home.

Shouting to the world what the Lord has done for you….our stories are all different. Yet God has met each and every one of us where we are and shown His mercy and grace and incredible power.

Can I challenge you, next time you pray, to recount ALL that He has done for you. We see it over and over again in the Psalms the recalling of God and His might and power and what He had done for the children of Israel.

Now, let us do the same.

Be a Size You,

The Weekly Workout That Didn’t Really Happen

I started off week 3 with a bang!

​​
I was so excited because, hello, I am almost done with this program!!! I really like it, but I am not sure I am falling in love with it like I did with 22. But I am enjoying learning how to punch and kick and I am doing more push-ups that I ever thought possible.

Anyway, week 3 kind of got put on the back burner because our family……

HEADED TO LEGOLAND!!


It was the final week of Spring Break for my kiddos (they get two weeks off instead of one) so Dan and I wanted to treat them to something fun and Legoland was the choice. They had a great deal where you buy one day get four days free and admission included Legoland, SeaLife Aquarium, and the water park. Yes, please!!! Our kids were so excited!

So basically, my workout meant a lot of walking and swimming πŸ˜‚


So while yes, I was “off routine” but honestly, my kids are only this little for so long. I would much rather make sure they get enough Momma and Daddy time. You all know I am consistent and dedicated to my health and fitness. This week won’t deter me one bit.

We needed this week of fun and no routine. It is good for us once in awhile.

And that is what Be a Size You is. I can share consistency, but we can also express freedom. My kids emotional Cup is filled this week because we decided to play. 

So, with that being said, week 3 is going to be done over…because I can. There are no rules! You won’t get kicked out of the health and fitness club if you do over the week! 

On deck for Core De Force this week:

Repeat of last week! 

Be a Size You,
