READ MORE ABOUT THE SALES!

I don’t know about you, but with all of the travelling and vacations, eating out, bbq’s, etc….I kinda lost focus a bit. My workouts slipped and nutrition too. It wasn’t a total loss, but I’ve got some work to do to get back on track! This is the perfect time to do just that!

Summer is winding down, and we’re about to get hit with busy schedules, kids’ activities, demands of our time, fall treats and goodies, etc… We can’t be the best version of ourselves to take all of that responsibility on without taking care of ourselves first! Take this bet and set yourself up for a fall that you can take head on – with your head up – feeling good about yourself, with more energy to do all of the things! I will be there to help you every step of the way! And together we will get fit and win some cash to boot!

SO LET’S DO THIS! WHO’S IN?

Fill out the form below and let’s get started!

Grilled Marinated Chicken Kebabs

First of all…you don’t have to ‘kebab’ this chicken if you don’t want to. You can just marinate it and grill it up…cause it’s really about the marinade! You could slather it on a shoe and it would still be pretty tasty!

But for the purposes of this recipe, let’s assume you’ll be grilling chicken (not shoes).

kebab_aip

Ingredients

1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lime, juiced
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 honey
1 teaspoon kosher salt
ground black pepper to taste
This marinade is enough for about 5-6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves.

Instructions

  1. Whisk all of the ingredients together.
  2. Cut up chicken (if making kebabs) into 1 inch chunks.
  3. Put the chicken in a large Ziploc bag and add marinade.
  4. Put the chicken in the fridge and try to marinate for at least 2 hours (less if you’re in a hurry and didn’t plan ahead).
  5. Place 5-6 pieces of chicken on each kebab stick (I pre-soaked mine so they wouldn’t burn).
  6. *Optional – feel free to add some veggies to your kebabs (mushrooms, peppers, onion, tomato…)
  7. Grill chicken over med/high heat and cook until juices run clear. (kebabs will take about 5-7 minutes on each side.

kebabs_pan

 

Then, when they were done grilling, I took the pieces off the stick, and shoved them into my 21 Day Fix container to see how many would fit! I was able to fit almost 2 full sticks in one red container – which was a lot of food!

Delicious Strawberry Vinaigrette!

‘Tis the season for fresh strawberries!

I have such fond memories of picking strawberries as a kid. My mom would take us and I remember laying down between the rows, so nobody could see me eating my weight in berries! I would come back with an empty quart container, a drippy red chin and a FULL belly!

strawberry_pick2Taking my own kids is a lot of fun too! They are excellent taste-testers! With 4 extra pickers, I usually come home with 10 million strawberries and then try to figure out what to do with them all!

strawberry_pick4strawberry_pick3strawberry_pick

 

I like to make my grandmother’s strawberry shortcake recipe. I’ll usually do some freezer jam. Of course, we eat them fresh too!

strawberry_summer_saladA tasty strawberry spinach salad is always a nice summer treat!

 

I made this one the other day, topped with some grilled chicken. But what made the salad was this AMAZING dressing! OMG! It was SO incredibly delicious. The kids were seriously trying to DRINK it! (Not kidding). When I told them they couldn’t drink the salad dressing, they poured it on their plates and licked it clean! Oy!

What is Coaching? 3 Day Sneak Peek – YOLO

If you had told me 2 1/2 years ago that I would spend the afternoon taking professional fitness pictures with a friend, I would have died laughing…like really…fer real. DEAD from laughter!

YOLO

 

Instead, there I was, with a fellow coach-friend, who was also pinching herself and wondering how she came to be standing in front of a camera, dumbbell in hand, promoting her fitness business.

Sometimes our craziest ideas turn into our defining moments!

Had I not decided to sign up as a coach around 2.5 years ago, not only would I not have been planking poolside, but I would be at LEAST 25 pounds overweight, self-conscious, uncomfortable, depressed and not blessed by the many many amazing people that I have met through this business.

10younger_Collage

 

I joined for selfish reasons. I wanted the discount. I was a huge fan of Beachbody products and programsShakeology_discount already, and I just wanted to save some $$ on Shakeology. But then I fell in love with helping other people find the same kind of success that I was experiencing! And SOMEBODY PINCH ME – because I get PAID to do this! As much, if not more than I did as a full-time teacher; working part-time hours, from home or wherever I happen to be each day: chillin’ poolside, under a blankie on the couch with my kids…

little_piggiesI get to be home with my kids!…instead of spending my days with other people’s kids. And that is worth MORE than anything to me!

I can go on family vacations for as long as I want and not have to worry about begging some jerky boss for time off – I am my OWN boss! Not only that…but the money I make is making it possible for us to do MORE travelling, take vacations we wouldn’t have been able to afford before, save money for college educations (x4!), and buy a new family vehicle!

If you’ve ever thought about doing this, or just want to know more…stop wondering! Join me for my upcoming 3 Day Sneak Peek! Hear my story, learn the basics and ask ANY questions you have!

No commitments.

NO pressure!Sneak_peek

The group will start on Monday, May 18. I’ll just share my story, explain the ‘basics’ of the business and answer ANY questions you might have!

Like….

 

  • How much time does it take?
  • Do you have to be a fitness professional?
  • Do you have to be a nutritionist?
  • Do you have to be in top physical condition?
  • How much money do you make?
  • How will I learn WHAT to do and HOW to do it?

Are you curious? Just a little? My biggest regret is that I didn’t start coaching sooner. I didn’t understand it, because I didn’t take the time to learn about it. That’s why I want to let you take a little peek, and decide if this is something that you might enjoy, too! Learn at your pace, be a fly on the wall…whatever floats your boat! 🙂 

YOLO‬!

Story Time!

STORY TIME!!!story_time

I have a story to tell, and I just need to get it out!

Once upon a time, about 2 and a half years ago, there was this mom who was desperate for a change.

SPOILER ALERT! (It was ME!)

I was slowly gaining weight and losing every last shred of self-confidence I had – which wasn’t much to begin with. I was seriously considering just giving up and resigning myself to what I thought was inevitable: stretchy waistbands and spending the rest of my life on the couch trying to convince myself that it didn’t matter. Who cares!?

I cared.

I decided to do something about it – one last BIG effort to see what could happen if I really gave it my all! I knew about Beachbody and Shakeology through my good friend Jenelle Summers (who had also introduced this whole coaching business to me – which I did not understand at the time). I wanted to try Shakeology and some new fitness programs, but I was reluctant to spend that kind of money and I was VERY skeptical of Shakeology, but intrigued enough to try it and see – expecting to chalk it up as a big, dumb mistake!

Then, I did something really CRAZY! Despite warnings from my friends and family that it was a big scam and a pyramid scheme (SCARY!), I signed up as a coach simply so I could save 25% on my big dumb mistake!

What happened next blew my mind! In my first 3-6 months, I lost 24 pounds, about 20 inches and felt better than I had ever felt in my life!

10younger_Collage

And something else. I was running these support groups for my friends and family members to keep pyramid_schememyself on track, and they were losing weight and getting fit and healthy, too! I was HOOKED! I had found my passion! And I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up! A Beachbody Coach! *Oh, and nothing bad happened. It wasn’t a scam or a big scary scheme after all!

I have hosted at least one support group every month since I started and the transformations I’ve witnessed are UN-f’n-believable!! It’s the most amazing feeling to be part of that! I have a basic need to help people, and coaching fulfills that need for me! This is why I get up in the morning, excited to get to work!

I wholeheartedly believe in these products and programs because I’ve seen first hand how they’ve changed people’s lives – including mine!

I’m just a regular ol’ mom of four amazing kids, wife of my high school sweetheart, and former first grade teacher who took a giant leap of faith and boy did it pay off – BIG time! I work part time hours, at home, with my kids, when I want, where I want and how I want. Just 2 years after starting, I now make as much moo-la as I did working full time as a teacher, spending my days with other people’s kids. I am proof that anyone can do this!

And what’s SUPER awesome is that I have this whole amazing team of coaches, with the same passion and drive, and we are having 10 tons of fun growing our businesses together! Some of them I’ve never even met in person! But I will SOON and I absolutely canNOT wait!

super_saturday_jan15-EM

*If you’ve ever thought about doing something like this, don’t be like me and wait 5 more years to find out how incredible this opportunity is! Message me, let’s chat. You can ask me anything! And if you decide this is something you’d like to try. I’ll be with you every step of the way!

THE END (or just the beginning! It’s up to you!)

How to get the stink out of your workout clothes!

P.U.!

Don’t you hate it when you pull out your favorite summer workout clothes and you pass out from the smell?! Don’t pitch them just yet…try this first!

stinky_clothes

 

Step 1: Fill a sink with warm water and add about 1/2 – 1 C. of baking soda. Swish the water around until the soda is dissolved and add your stinky duds. Push everything down into the water to make sure it’s all covered and wet. Let sit for 30 minutes – 2 hours.

Step 2: Rinse thoroughly;squeezing out the clothes as you rinse. Now fill up the sink with HOT water and add about 1 cup of white vinegar. Swoosh the clothes around until saturated. Let the clothes soak for another 30 minutes – 2 hours (longer is fine too).

Step 3: Rinse thoroughly again and run your dripping duds to the washer. Don’t overfill and don’t use too much laundry detergent (half the usual amount is good). Wash in hot water. Remove once finished and if you can, dry out in the sun for natural odor killing magic…if not, air dry or tumble in the dryer.

TIP: If your clothes still smell, you can buy a special detergent. These “sports washes” can be found in sporting goods section of stores like Walmart and Target, and on Amazon.com. They can be expensive! But it’s what the professionals use – and a good last resort for your odor-eliminating needs!
Follow the directions for the product you buy. (obviously!)

To AVOID the stink in the first place, never just throw your sweaty clothes into the hamper. Immediately following your workout, rinse or soak until you’re ready to wash. Or at LEAST just let them air dry! These fabrics wick the sweat and moisture from our bodies while we workout, but left inside the fabric – it’s a breeding ground for bacteria! P.U.!

To be OK with the body you have…

ARE YOU COMFORTABLE IN YOUR OWN SKIN?

This is unbelievably HARD for me to post, but it’s like peeling off a band-aid before summer, and swimsuit season. I know everyone has their ‘thing’, and this is mine.

This is the thing that makes me cringe, and avoid the mirror. I’ve been working really hard to get past feeling insecure and self-conscious, and this is part of that process for me!

*I cannot believe I’m posting this on the world wide internets!

ok_body

3 years ago I wouldn’t have DREAMED of wearing a bikini to the pool or the beach…NO WAY! Not with this “thing” on my belly. (Kids refer to it as a “butt” and giggle. I pretend it doesn’t bother me, but it does.)

I’ve spent the last 2 1/2 years working on ME. Getting fit, and making my health a priority has not only changed my body physically, but for the first time I’ve started feeling more comfortable in my own skin! My confidence and self esteem have improved drastically! So, even though it’s NOT easy…I WILL wear my bikini this summer – not to ‘flaunt’ anything, but to practice being OK with my whole self!

This scar is my badge of honor, for bringing 4 wonderful people into this world. It’s just part of who I am now. I continue working hard EVERY day to be OK with the body I have: every wrinkle, stretch mark, scar and freckle.

For me, that means controlling what I CAN: working out every day, and fueling my body with the kinds of foods that make me feel better, stronger and have enough energy to do everything I need to do, every day, with a smile on my face!

Will I ever have a 6-pack? Nope. But that’s not my goal. I’m just trying be as healthy as I can, so that I can wear that bikini with my head held high!

Let’s get to work, and get comfortable in our own skin!
WHO’S WITH ME?!

I’ve got a support group starting on April 6th. We’ll workout, eat healthy foods and keep each other accountable! I’ll provide you with the all of tools you’ll need to be really successful!

Summer BODies Forming NOW!

Now that we’re THIS close to spring…my mind naturally goes to end-of-summer-quotes-pinterest-3SUMMER! It’ll be here before we know it! So…are you ready? Have you pulled out those shorts from last season. UGH! I don’t know about you…but how many times have I tried on last year’s clothes only to find out they don’t fit!!! Is there anything worse than that?

No. There isn’t.

I have spent spring days on my bed, just about in tears, because every article of clothing I pulled out of the box from the basement was either too tight, too small or too short. How could that happen in just 6 short months?! SO frustrating!

But we’ve got time! And where there’s a will, there’s a way! You provide the WILL, and I’ll provide the WAY!

DEAL!?

Maybe you’re worried that you don’t have the time. I get it! I’m a busy mom of 4, and it can be done. You just have to adjust your priorities a little and put yourself at the TOP of your list! Two and a half years ago I stopped putting myself dead last, and my life has done a complete 180! When I spent some time working on me, the result was that everyone got the BEST of me! I’m a better mom, wife and friend, and it’s because I started taking care of myself along with everyone else.

Now it’s YOUR turn!

summer_bodies

Starting Monday, April 6, let’s get down to business!

These groups work so well. Every month I have participants who share such amazing success stories! Losing 10-20 pounds in one month feels incredible. And for many, it’s just the beginning of a new healthy lifestyle! Over and over again I hear the same thing from my fellow busy moms. They tell me that it’s the first time in a very long time that they’ve made themselves a priority and that it feels AMAZING! They have more energy and confidence and just have a more positive outlook on life in general. It’s so empowering!

As your coach, I will help you choose a workout and/or meal plan option that will work best for you! There are some GREAT sales going on right now! Save $90 on Turbo Fire (one of my FAVORITE workouts – helped me lose 16 pounds!), Focus T25, and the brand new option: BEACHBODY ON DEMAND (#BOD)!

Here is what Jennifer says: “Feeling stronger (mentally) everyday. I chose to eat a salad with balsamic vinegar instead of the pancakes that my kids wanted last night for dinner. And I’m getting my workout in everyday even when I am exhausted from getting up with a teething 10 month old . Loving this program and the motivation from all of you ladies!”

“I love your positivity. I wish I could print out all your posts and hang them on my wall! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!”
