I want to share a few things with you that I’m TOTALLY pumped about. I’ll be teaching at SOUL CAMP EAST again this September. You can check out the details on their website, but take it from me this was one OM-mazing experience last year. It’s camp for adults. There’s yoga, meditation, arts & crafts, nutritional workshops…all the food is local, organic and delicious…umm and you sleep in bunks! I mean I really can’t say enough great stuff about my experience last year I only got to stay for 36 hours due to a prior obligation. I CAN’T WAIT for this year!

A’ight…now let’s get to WORK together this week! See where I’ll be below…
I LOVE YOU! NOW LET’S #GETFIERCE TOGETHER!
It’s Family Vacation Time…
I’m off to Aruba with the entire fam from June 29th – July 2nd, so we’ve gotta put some serious work this coming week! Below is my schedule and some progress pics for you as well as proof of my #shirtlessJune endeavors. I’m running shirtless along the West Side Highway in order to get comfortable movin’ my bod barely clothed. It’s a process, my friends…it’s a process.
Let’s work TOGETHER this week!
Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean we can slack! This is when you see all the benefits of all the hard work you’ve been puttin’ in!
Much love, my FIERCE friends…much love.
SO…I have just under 5 weeks until my competition, that means it’s crunch time. This is no easy task. On top of lifting heavy, my body tends to hold on to fat, so I need to shock it. I’m on the gauntlet (look left) for 45 minutes every single day, gettin’ my #SWERVEon, gettin’ #FHIXed, runnin’ on the WSH or sprinting 12.5 @Barrysbootcamp. I post about 1/4 of what I actually do on social media (if I posted it all you’d really think I was crazy or immediately “unfriend” or “unfollow” me. The moral of that story is that it takes a lot to make a change. This is no easy feat, but no goal worth having is, so I’m putting in my time.
REMEMBER WHAT YOU’RE WORKING FOR
I try to lead by example. I like to have goals set for myself to achieve because it forces me to keep striving for better. I took on this challenge of being in a bikini competition not knowing how long it would take or how all consuming it would be. I set my mind and I’m sticking to it. I say it in my classes and KNOW that I say it to myself, (on the gauntlet it’s especially loud) when it’s the most difficult, when you want to give up THAT is when you MUST keep on going. The point of discomfort is where average people stop or quit for good, but if you want to be outstanding you’ve gotta keep on going through the tough parts. When I reach those points myself I recognize it and then I say “F- – – that” and crank it up a notch higher. I know that this is where the change is happening and I want it to happen faster, so I go bigger. I know that I’ve got to get “there” and when it’s hard is when “it” happens.
SET YOUR GOAL
That’s it. Pick something you want to go for and do it…do it today! Sign up for a race, competition, whatever it is commit to it and tell people…then they’ll be no turning back! If it’s scary then it’s perfect, remember that. If it doesn’t challenge you it won’t change you and that’s an AWEsome thing, my FIERCE. friends!
Let’s work TOGETHER this week!

I LOVE YOU!
CHEERS! To the best week EVER!
YOU ARE FIERCE.
Today is my 37th birthday and I feel like the Grinch. Not the crankypants one, the one at the end of the story who’s small heart grows 3 sizes! I’m overwhelmed by the love I feel today. “You have NO idea” how grateful I feel. In this age of social media when we get distracted by what’s happening online instead of being present in the moment…today I find it a blessing to connect with loved ones and all of the “blasts from the past” I’ve received messages from.
Live Your Dream
Sometimes I feel like I’m dreaming my life, it’s SO great! I was telling my friend yesterday that when I was little I would watch (and mimic) Gilad, Jane Fonda, Richard Simmons and dream of being them. His response was, “You kind of are.” I realized…I kinda am. I want to help as many people as possible to be their best. Year after year I set my bar higher and higher to be better and stronger not only for me, but as an example for others. I’m real, I know this sh!t can be challenging sometimes, but that’s what makes it awesome. When you get through the crappy, really hard parts and realize, “Damn I’m strong!” That’s what GETting FIERCE is all about.
I can’t tell you what a great birthday weekend it’s been. Yesterday I celebrated with 4 workouts, 2 of my own and 2 I taught. After my final class I was brought a chia pudding with a candle (SWERVEfounders you know me so well) and I teared up. In that moment I realized that there’s not ONE particular special someone in my life at this moment there are LOADS of special someones. I have so much love around me I feel humbled, honored and overjoyed to serve you. My tears were me realizing just how grateful I am for what I do and for all of the wonderful people around me!
It is a triple x of love and kisses. I wasgoing to just write a thanks for the birthday wishes post on Facebook, but in true “Dyan Form” I have lots to say that would be too much for a single post. I want to thank everyone who has been a part of my world in the past for getting me where I need to be. Those who have encouraged me, told me no, broken my heart, picked me up, told me I could when I thought I couldn’t. All of you have helped me become who I am today.
No matter where you are in your life now, remember it’s not forever. It can all shift in a moment and it starts with a single thought. Make it BIG, make it FIERCE. Make it Happen! It’s your birthday when you choose a new beginning. I’m gifting you on my birthday to make it YOURS as well. Live YOUR DREAM!
I Wanna See You This Week!
