Counting My Blessings

I’m just sitting here reflecting on the last 4 years of my life, how I ended up here, and what I’d miss desperately if I hadn’t taken a little leap of faith.

friends4_names

I hung out with these beauties last weekend. We laughed our asses off. We cried our heads off. We did some hiking, played games, went for a run, ate delicious food and sat around soul-searching, planning and strategizing how to reach our goals and learn how to help more people find a path to health and financial freedom! Not necessarily a typical ‘girls weekend’, but these are my people and I can’t imagine my life without them.

Four years ago I was struggling. Physically I just wasn’t where I wanted to be. I hated looking in the mirror. My clothes weren’t fitting and I was at a loss! I was working out almost daily. And eating what I thought was ‘pretty healthy’ food. Well…it wasn’t working. Not only was I not making any progress, I was steadily gaining weight and I was getting desperate! I even found myself lingering by the diet pills at the store, looking for a quick fix – though I knew better.

I called my friend who was a Beachbody coach, because I wanted to try a new workout program – and P90X had worked for me in the past – so I was ready to recommit and give it my best effort to see if I could make some changes and finally get results. That included Shakeology. Nutrition was key, and I knew it. I had done a LOT of research and as a busy mom, I just needed a quick, healthy meal that I could grab on the go. I justified the expense by giving up soda, fast food and fancy Starbucks. I saved even more money by signing up as a “coach” so I could save 25% on my Shakeology and any other programs or products I wanted. (I’m a lifelong Beachbody fan…so I knew I’d use it!)

I really had no intention of “coaching”, I just needed to work on myself first! Well, then I got plugged into a challenge group, and found myself surrounded by other moms and women working on goals of their own. I found it very motivating and I had GREAT success with it! Meanwhile… people were asking my what I was doing and I was sharing a little about my journey on social media. I had enough interest to put together a group of my own. And that started my coaching “career”. I’ve run at least one group every month since then, met hundreds of women in my challenge groups, networked with amazing ladies like these and found my true passion through helping others!

And now four years later, I make more than I did as a full-time teacher. I’ve lost 24 pounds and kept it off through my monthly accountability groups. I would NEVER ask people to do something that I wasn’t doing myself…so it’s amazing accountability! I’ve traveled to Las Vegas, Nashville, South Beach, beach house get-aways and in just a few months my husband and I will be heading on an all-expense paid vacation to Punta Cana! All for doing something I LOVE to do! Working part-time hours, from home, where, when, how and with whom I want! These ladies are just a few of the amazing women I’ve had the privilege to get to know and work with every day.

We have so much stinking fun together…it’s CRAZY to me that I didn’t know any of them just a few short years ago, and now I feel like we’ve been bff’s!

friends6

But don’t just take it from me! You know I’m a fan! This has changed my life and my families lives in more ways than I can count! I’m happier, healthier and wealthier!

I asked these ladies to share their experiences, too. Here are the questions I asked them.

1) how many inches/pounds you’ve lost?
2) something you’ve overcome as a coach?
3) something you love about being a coach?
Michele said:
1) 50lbs, size 14 to 4 (idk how many inches bc I wasn’t in the measuring habit pre-BB)2) Self doubt! friends_michele3) The people.
The love 💜
The growth 🌱🌿🌳
The new excitement that comes w a new group every month.
All the things 😉

25 pounds lost and went from size 10-6 no clue on inches. 🙂 friends_jodiAs a coach I have overcome the feeling of being alone. Besides my immediate family (hubby and kids) I have always felt alone and underappreciated. As a coach and with this community it has given me to the opportunity to meet some beautiful and inspiring women from all walks a life. I know that at any time or point in my life someone will be there no matter what. Also, I finally feel that I’m not alone. Someone will always have my back.What I love most about coaching is that I can do what I do best, which is to be me. As hard it has been to admit that I am a task master and a caregiver, I have realized that I can use what I thought as negative traits for good. It has always been in my nature to help others and be there for them and now I can do it on an even broader scale. ❤
Jen said:
1) About 30 lbs in the last 6 years, but over 60 in the last 10 I’m not sure about my inches. I’ve gone from a size 18 to a 4.friends_jen
2) My fear of what people will think about me! I’ve become so much more confident with myself and in my own skin.
3) Finding friends/sisters/soulmates that share my views on health and happiness. Willingness to share with each other and to lift each other up, not tear each other down. I love learning more about being a better person inside and out. And I love that I have found my purpose in life!!!
Karen said:
1) Actually gained 15-20 pounds since I spent a couple years really UNDER weight (at least for me) due to unhealthy habits and behaviors.friends_karen
2) Addiction to prescriptions for pain and anxiety. I’ve also overcome the shame and guilt of that. It’s still a daily fight. But SO worth it!
3) The people I get to meet and become friends with. You can’t find more positive, driven folks than your fellow Beachbody coaches. The people you surround yourself with help define you. I want to be a kick-ass mom/friend/coach.
Wendy said:
1) Since October 2015, I’ve lost 10 pounds and have gone from a size 12 to an 8friends_wendy
2) I’ve always been a farewell friend of a healthy lifestyle. I liked living it for a while, then when things got tough or something more enticing came along, that was the first thing I’d drop. (I didn’t have time to __________) Since I started coaching, I have been living a healthy lifestyle for 145 days. Yes there are bad days, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t keep going. I’ve learned that one bad day does not mean that all is lost.
3) I love to learn that I’m not alone in my struggles and temptations. I love sharing and helping others know that they aren’t alone in there’s. I love that even when I meet women for the first time, I’m greeted by a big hug just like I’m the sister they haven’t seen in forever. I love that by helping others stay on track, I am kept on track. Coaching has helped me find myself, and is continually helping me to grow into the person I want to be.
Kari said:
1) I have lost 100 lbs and went from size 24 to 14 img_3719
2) Something I have overcome… I get to talk about fitness without annoying people now 😂 Seriouslly I used to want to boast about what I did that day. Now people expect it from me. I never was trying to boast but it was so exciting for me to do things I couldn’t of wouldn’t before starting my journey. I have also overcome self doubt. I have done things in the last 20 months that I never would have even considered. I.e. 3) Shave my head just bc my friends encouraged me to to stop being a wussy. 😜
I love being a coach because it’s a never ending journey of striving towards something bigger than yourself. I have a community of people who are (as I described to a friend today) “just BETTER people than me”. My community calls me HIGHER. I don’t get to stay stuck or become passive because there is always something to work towards bigger than myself!

So there you go! I wish I could shout from the rooftops what an amazing opportunity this is.
I’m so glad I’ve taken the time to collect these stories and share my beautiful friends with you here! 🙂
If you’d like to learn more about coaching, I have a one day group starting soon where I’ll share my story, including my reservations, some basic info about what it’s all about, what we do, how we earn, etc. I’ll answer any/all questions as well. Just fill out the form below and we’ll chat!

 

Planksgiving Challenge

planksgiving_banner2

Back by popular demand!

I had so much fun doing this last year with SO many people from across the country and around the world! I’m really excited to do it again! I hope you’ll join the fun!

Join me for the month of November!

We’re planking and thanking for 30 days in November. While you’re planking, you’ll have time to reflect about what you’re thankful for each day. We’ll be adding to our time and building towards a 3 minute plank! And we’ll report in one thing that we’re thankful for each day. By November 30th, you’ll also be thankful for a tighter, stronger core!

I received several messages after the group that this was the gentle push they needed to make some big changes in their lives! This is really so simple! At the most, it will take 3 minutes of your day! That’s it! Everybody has time for that. And it wouldn’t hurt any of us to slow down and appreciate our many blessings every day, but especially during the month of November.

*This group is FREE! Feel free to invite friends to join too!

Lemon Berry Green Iced Tea

So my daughter is always trying to get me to take her to Starbucks for frappu-Ch-Ching-os (SO expensive! JEEZ!). I wasn’t in the mood for coffee, or for the price tag, so I tried one of the green tea chiller drinks (or whatever they’re called) instead. It was surprisingly delightful, albeit still a little pricey! So I was on a mission to create my own for a small fraction of the price!

I started looking up recipes, but they all called for making a berry syrup, with a ton of sugar. Blech! NOT what I wanted! So as per usual, I just took some ideas from a few different recipes and kinda did my own thang. The result was pure yumminess! This will be such a tasty summer beverage, and I can’t wait to experiment with some other flavors! The possibilities are endless!

For my first experiment I made this delicious…

Lemon Berry Green Iced Tea!

green_tea

Ingredientsbigelow

  • cups water
  • cup raspberries
  • cup strawberries, chopped
  • bags lemon green tea (I used Bigelow green tea w/lemon) 
  • teaspoons honey, agave nectar (or sweetener of your choice)
  • lemon, berries to garnish 🙂

Directions

  1. In a large pot, bring water to boil and then remove from heat.
  2. Add berries, crush a little with a potato masher. Add tea bags and honey (agave or sweetener of choice), stir well and let sit for about 15 minutes.
  3. Pour through a strainer into a 2 quart pitcher. Cool to room temperature before transferring to the refrigerator.
  4. Serve in a tall glass over ice with a lemon berries or BOTH. Enjoy!

 

I am quite certain that this could be prepared as sun tea. I haven’t tried that yet, but it’s on my list of things to do this summer!

Ode to My Mom, the Queen of Earth Day!

My mom with her recycling ‘box’ (they don’t have bins to use). And her beautiful, steaming compost pile!

I always say my mom was earth conscious before it was cool. She has recycled, conserved and reused before these were even buzzwords that all of the cool people talk about now. Maybe it’s because she grew up on a farm, or maybe it’s because she was a bit of a hippie in the 60s. I just thought she was frugal and crafty, and sometimes…a little crazy.

She might have been the very first recycler in the town where I grew up. She recycled before there was even a recycling program. She would collect cans, plastic bottles, glass bottles, stryofoam and paper, and save them in our house. About once a month she would load up the back of the car and drive 20 to 30 miles away where there was a recycling plant. She would even collect other people’s cans and bottles and things, because it bothered her that they would get thrown into the garbage otherwise. There is some sort of a recycle program there now, but it’s not curbside, it’s not convenient, yet she does it anyway. She gets irritated that they won’t take all of the different numbers, so I think she still makes that monthly trip for the things they won’t accept in town.

She’s had a garden for as long as I can remember. She grew up on a farm so I think she has always appreciated being able to grow some of her own food. Her thumb is way greener than mine! If she gets critters in her garden, she finds a natural way to get rid of them or deal with them. She is currently at war with bunny rabbits! And a couple of years ago her garden had a nasty case of slugs. It keeps her busy. 🙂

At the end of her garden you will find a giant steaming pile of rubbish. I swear, this woman just hates to throw things away! My parents are master composters! I always thought it was weird that we took our food scraps out to the garden, but her garden is always beautiful. And those bits of apple peels, lettuce scraps and eggshells had something to do with that! Now I get it!

If she can’t recycle it, or compost it, she will figure out a way to reuse it. For example – and she will hate that I am telling this story again – but it has to be told. All through grade school she never once bought a bag of brown paper lunch bags. I had to use leftover bags from the grocery store, or the hardware store, or wherever else you might have gotten a bag. Sometimes they were medium-sized and other times they were the big, full-sized grocery bags. And if I didn’t bring them home to reuse for the rest of the week, she would get upset with me, and have to go find another bag in her collection. By the end of the week my lunch bag was looking pretty shabby. When I discovered that you could buy a big bag of normal-sized, brown paper lunch bags for like a dollar, I was miffed! Here I thought they must be very expensive because why else wouldn’t I get a new bag every day like everyone else at school. But now I get it, she was ahead of her time.

At the time I didn’t appreciate it, but my mom was very thoughtful. Not only was she thoughtful about the environment, she always made sure I was taken care of and well-fed. I never had prepackaged chips or HoHo cupcakes in my lunches, but I did have homemade snacks and healthy treats that she made and packaged herself. I want to be like her when I grow up!

mom2_queen
This will have to do for now, until I can make the real thing!

I guess I just got used to some of the rather odd things that she did. When I was dating my future husband in high school, he finally asked me one day why my mom kept old empty bread bags in the freezer. I guess I never thought about it. She had just always done that. She would use empty bread bags instead of Ziploc bags. And her mom had taught her to keep them in the freezer so that any little bread particles didn’t get moldy and gross. Smart!

And this might be the funniest story of all. She believed she had found a use for dryer lint. She started saving different colors, and was going to make some sort of picture or collage out of it. Luckily, we talked her out of that project. Because… YUCK! She had taken it too far this time.

There should be some sort of award for people like her. She just did these things because it was the right thing to do. Why would you throw something away that could be reused or somehow turned into more of the same thing, or something entirely different? It wasn’t always convenient but she did it anyway. Call it frugal, call it environmentally conscious, call it whatever you want. But my mom is the queen of Earth Day and I’m going to make her a crown out of an empty oatmeal container!

10 Reasons Women Should Lift Weights!

 10_reasons_lift

I have done so many different types of workouts: cardio, dance cardio, running, kickboxing, yoga, etc…but nothing has ever given me the kind of results that lifting weights has! When I added strength training…I FINALLY saw the kinds of changes in my body that I had always wanted!

So I stick with what works, while including some of my other favorite workouts too, of course! I just make sure to lift weights at least 3 times each week. The heavier I lift, the better results I get! I used to be afraid I’d get ‘bulky’, but I was uninformed. The truth is, lifting weights made me leaner and stronger than I had ever been!

If you’re still not convinced that you need to lift weights, here are 10 reasons you should reconsider.

1. Burn more fat. It has been scientifically proven that lifting weights keeps your metabolism elevated for several hours after exercise.

2. Change your body shape. You will NOT get bulky! Women lack the body composition and hormones for that! Keep your nutrition clean, and you get leaner and toner and skinny jeans readier!

3. Boost your metabolism. As we get older, we begin to lose muscle tissue, bummer right! If you diet alone, you will lose muscle even faster! Lifting weights will help you build muscle tissue, thus elevating your metabolism, thus burning more calories all day long!

4. Get stronger and more confident. Strength training will make you better at every day activities too, like lifting kids, bags and bags of groceries, etc…And being stronger will make you feel confident and bad ass! (true story!)

5. Build strong bones. Women MUST lift weights to avoid bone loss! When you lift weights you improve your muscle strength and bone density at the same time! Say NO to hunched over brittle bones!

6. Fight depression. Endorphins are endorphins! Yoga, running, weights…it all makes you feel pretty damn good!

7. Improve sports fitness. Biking, hiking, skiing, whatever strikes your fancy! You’ll be better, stronger and faster!

8. Reduce injuries and arthritis. Your joints, ligaments and tendons will be more flexible and stable. This will help you stay safe! And even those who already arthritis see improved movement and strength with weight training. And less pain too!

9. Get heart healthy. Pumping iron, gets your heart pumping too! A pumping heart, is a strong heart.

10. Defend against diabetes. The more lean muscle mass your body has, the more efficient it is at removing glucose from the bloodstream when can reduce diabetes symptoms and prevent type 2 all together!

So now that you have 10 reasons…you just need a plan!

When I was first starting out, I didn’t have a clue what to lift, how many times, which days per week, etc…I would aimlessly wander around the gym just looking for things to pick up and put down. Not very effective. When I started P90X it was a relief to have a program that someone else had designed with a purpose in mind. It really takes all of the guesswork out of it for me! I’ve got enough to think about, I don’t have the time to figure out a weight-lifting program, too!

And since I got such great results with P90X, I was hooked on the at-home format. I cancelled my gym membership! Next I moved on to Chalean Extreme, Les Mills Pump, Body Beast, and now I cannot wait to start my next program!!!

My Plans to Survive the Holidays! *and still fit into my skinny jeans! :)

PREPARE TO HAVE YOUR MIND BLOWN!

I’m going to reveal my super secret plans for staying on track and in my skinny jeans throughout the holidays!

42days_0Hear me now! I will NOT gain 10 pounds over the holidays! I will not gain 10 pounds over the holidays! It’s just not worth the pain and aggravation AFTER the holidays to try to get it back off again! Now, if I was twenty-something, I might really weigh my options (pun intended). But I’m not twenty-something and when the weight comes around now…it likes to stay put. 🙁

So what’s my plan?! A brand new program called the 42 Day Fix! *Just kidding, there isn’t such a thing! But, there IS the 21 Day Fix and the 21 Day Fix Extreme, and when you put them together, you get 42 days that will take me up to the holidays with my health AND my sanity! Sanity is important to have during the holidays! 😉

Every year around this time we start stressing out! So many presents to buy! So many parties to attend. So much food to eat! So many pounds to gain! RIGHT?!

WRONG! I needed a plan! I needed to get back into a program, so I could track my progress and stay accountable.

I’ve kinda been winging it lately in my gym. I like to dabble with Beachbody on Demand workouts as well as lifting weights, etc. I’ve just been on my own waiting for the next program release: Hammer & Chisel in December! (Can’t wait)before_42days

Well, this is the time of year I need to be crossing off my workouts, taking before pics and measurements and keeping myself accountable with the support of a group of ladies who are also determined not to let this time of year set themselves back 10 pounds before the new year!

For the accountability – I’m posting my before pictures and looking forward to those after pics!

I have done both programs in the past, and because I KNOW how effective they are, I have recommitted to the 21 Day Fix for all 21 days in November, and then I’ll roll right into the 21 Day Fix Extreme in December. I’ll get The Master’s Hammer & Chisel when it comes out and be ready to start right away in January! Declaring these plans HERE is just another way I’m holding myself accountable to these goals!

As of yesterday, I have a full week under my belt! Here’s a look back:

Get PiYO and MORE!

piyo_banner_noclick

Did you know it was possible to get fit without killing yourself in the gym?

PiYO has been a favorite in my challenge groups since it came out about a year ago. It’s great for anyone who wants to avoid all of the jumping and jarring from traditional cardio workouts, but still wants amazing results! Your joints will thank you! And so will your waistline! I did this program last year along with my marathon training, and it was wonderful for my tight muscles! I improved my strength, flexibility and recovery time SO much! All without any additional wear and tear on my muscles and joints.

“PiYo gives you hardcore definition, intense calorie burn, and allover strength—without weights, without jumps, and without destroying your body.” -Chalene Johnson (creator of PiYo)

What is included in PiYO?

PiYo comes with 8 different workouts that you can do right at home. They are 25 to 45 minutes long, and vary in the target areas they hit.

Here is a description of the EIGHT/9 workouts:

  1. First up, Align: The Fundamentals (46 mins)
  2. Define: Upper Body is a focused workout (35 mins) that will strengthen and stretch your entire body, while building on the movement patterns you have learned in Align.
  3. Define: Lower Body (25 mins) will shape and tone everything from your glutes, hamstrings, quads and calves gently, yet effectively to help you get sleek and lean legs.
  4. Sweat (35 mins) is a traditional PiYo Workout that is fast paced with body weight strength training and ab work!
  5. An amazing 30 minute Core workout that will hit every muscle in your POWERHOUSE!
  6. PiYo Sculpt (30 mins) uses body weight to generate muscular endurance to stimulate metabolic changes to totally and utterly transform your figure!
  7. Strength Intervals (25 mins): 25 minutes is all you need of this body carving workout!
  8. Drench (45 mins): This workout not only leaves you drenched, but your metabolism will have been kick-started to ensure you scorch away fat!
  9. BONUS Workout when you order through a coach (Like ME!) 🙂

Here’s the SCOOP! The best deal going is the “All Access Beachbody on Demand Challenge Pack” that will include PiYO and hundreds of other workout programs (strength training, yoga, cardio, kickboxing, dance, etc – nice to have options after you finish PiYO) that you can stream on any internet device/smart tv (like workout Netflix) for one full year, including all new programs that launch within that timeframe. Over $6000 value!

You also get a 30 day supply of Shakeology (speeds results, reduces cravings, improves energy, etc) and the Portion Fix meal plan and containers that has helped so many of my challengers learn what foods to eat and how much – really simplifies nutrition.

And then there is the PiYO Challenge pack, which will come with the program and a 30 day supply of Shakeology along with a 30 day trial of Beachbody on Demand (NOT including the new and premium workouts or new releases). *for only $39 more you get the ALL Access package above! Most bang for your buck – $6000 value!
