And this month, you can get FREE access for 3 months when you buy Shakeology!

As a coach, I’ve been able to sample On Demand for the past month and I LOVE it! It’s been so great to be able to access a workout with the touch of a button on my smart phone, tablet or computer (you can also stream to your smart t.v.!). My laptop didn’t even come with a DVD player! And I just heard last night that any program you have already purchased through Beachbody, will be automatically available to you in your “previous purchased programs” area of On Demand! How cool is that!? *That feature will be up by the end of March.

You’ll get instant access to hundreds of workouts, including top-selling programs like P90X and Insanity! Try one, and if you don’t like it, try another one!


Get the Beachbody Club Challenge Pack this month and save BIG! How does $1,500 dollars worth of programming sound? I own almost every one of these videos, on DVD (remember those old things?) and spent hundreds of dollars, and now they’re yours. FREE.

Check it out!

My Boyfriend Does it AGAIN!

I ❤ this guy!

TONY IS AT IT AGAIN!!! (He’s a busy guy!)

In an early test group, Jamie (picture) lost 71 pounds! And she’s still going!


Who is this program for?

This program will be for anyone who:

▪thought that the other P90 programs were more than they could handle!

▪is recovering from an injury.

▪hasn’t worked out for a decade!

▪just wants to maintain what you’ve got without killing yourself!

Click HERE to get FIRST access to this program AND news about the TEST GROUP!






From Tony:

“Here’s something you thought I’d never say . . .

Hardcore workouts aren’t for everybody. I mean, what if you just want to lose 20 pounds? Or get back some of the muscle tone you had in college. Maybe you just want to get out of bed in the morning without a backache. For that all you need is something straightforward. Fundamental. Doable.

That’s why I created the NEW P90 workout.

Whether you used to be in shape and feel fitness has now passed you by, or you’ve never worked out a day in your life, my P90 workout is your easy-to-follow way to lose substantial weight, have the energy to run and play with your kids, and feel better in everything you do—without the agony of high-intensity exercise.

P90 is the result of everything I’ve learned in 20 years.

Here’s the key . . . In as little as 25 minutes a day, P90 will help you completely change your body—not by working you harder—but by keeping it simple. Simple cardio. Simple resistance training. A simple approach to portion control. I won’t say these new workouts are easy . . . but they’re a whole lot easier to get done now. And that’s how P90 will help you finally get the body you want.”

—Tony HortonCreator of P90X®, P90X2®, and P90X3®
now brings you the NEW P90® workout.

Don’t Be Like ME!

Apr_help_wantedIt took me 4 years to jump into coaching…WHY WHY WHY did I wait so long?! If I only I could have told myself THEN, what I know now…it would go something like this:


Dear Old Me,
You should not wait another minute! You know that thing you’ve been considering, that looks too good to be true. It’s not. You will be SO passionate about being a coach, that you would do it for FREE…but you’ll make money anyway! Actually, you’ll make enough money in just a year and a half, to help your family take 2 vacations and open up some additional college savings accounts!
What could you do with an extra $1,400/month!?
Also, you know that Facebook profile picture that you’ve had up since Facebook was invented, because you HATE having your picture taken and you don’t have any others to choose from? Well, you’ll have SO much more self-confidence that you’ll not only allow pictures of yourself taken, you won’t delete them from the camera anymore, and you’ll FINALLY change that profile picture….SEVERAL times! (Also, you’ll have an entire Facebook page where you post pictures of yourself almost daily!…sometimes in just a pair of shorts and a bra top!!!)
– Somebody get the smelling salts…’Old Me’ just passed out!! –
Get this…you know those pounds that you keep packing on and can’t seem to figure out WHY? Even though you’ve run 5 marathons, you’re still not seeing the results you want to see. There are programs that will work better than anything you’ve ever tried. AND you can do them at home, and ask your friends and family members to do them with you! Your friends will workout with you, and your family members will all get RIDICULOUSLY fit! Your husband will lose like 40 pounds, because he sees you getting fit and healthy and he wants to join you! 
Remember how you were nervous you wouldn’t know what to do, or how to do it? PSH! You’ll meet such a cool bunch of people that will help you and encourage you along the way! You’ll meet new friends and have a BLAST!
Oh and by the way…you know that friend who warned you that it was a pyramid scheme…it’s NOT!!! P.S….ALL corporations are structured like pyramids!
The only difference here, is that YOU get the opportunity to be a the top of your own pyramid! And you’ll get there by HELPING others succeed! *A little different than a traditional corporation!
Don’t wait 4 more years to jump on this opportunity! Do it today and you’ll be amazed at the many positive changes that will come from it! You’ll lose 24 pounds, gain killer confidence and help hundreds of people get fit and confident, too! It’s the most rewarding thing you’ll ever do!
What are you waiting for? There’s NO risk…if you don’t love it, you can quit, any time!! (But you WILL love it! I KNOW!!!)
The NEW Me!

I’m excited to announce another 30 Day NEW Coach Training group!

One of the reasons people hesitate to sign up is that they fear they won’t know what to do, or how to do it (I had that fear)! That’s why I run these groups for new coaches! I am going to walk you through EVERYTHING you need to go to get you up and running; building and growing your own successful coaching business!

*Sorry, not available to coaches, or anyone already working with a coach.

My next group will start on Monday, May 12.  Deadline to get signed up is Sunday, May 4. 

With consistent work, growing and building your business, you can expect your income to double every 6-12 months.

I sat on the fence for 4 years! My only regret about coaching is that I didn’t start sooner! Don’t make my mistake. If you’ve been on the fence…get OFF! If you’re ready, or just want more information, fill in the form below and we’ll talk about how you can get started, too. 🙂

Let’s Review

Busy week last week and I promised some reviews on my newest workout: P90X3….so here goes!

YES! This is exactly what I was hoping for – 30 minute workouts that FEEL like a workout! I was a little worried that 30 minutes couldn’t possibly get it done. WRONG! And…I was also worried that in order to get it done, it would consist of nothing but exhausting plyo moves, lots of jumping, etc. WRONG again! What I love the most so far, and what the members in my test group love too, is the VARIETY in every workout! We rarely repeat a single movement in a workout, and each workout is totally different! I also love that the focus is on functional exercises. These are the movements that will make you stronger in your everyday life! There is a little of everything, too: weights, cardio, bodyweight movements, pilates, yoga…Something for everyone! LOVE that too!

My test-groupers are also loving the 30 minutes..because HEY! What’s not to love about shorter, more efficient workouts? E’RBODYs got time for that!

And RESULTS?! Check out this nonsense…with 6 people reporting (so far), we have lost a combined total of 15.6 pounds and 14 1/4 inches! IN ONE WEEK!!!

Stacie and her husband Jeremy are doing the program together (and drinking Shakeology daily). Stacie lost 2 pounds and 3 inches and Jeremy lost 5 pounds and 4.5 inches – in ONE week!!! *Can you tell that I just can’t get over what we’re accomplishing with 30 minute workouts, in one week?! I’m so proud of our group and can’t wait to see the results in the coming weeks.

So the schedule last week will be the same for the next 2 weeks, and here it is:

Day 1: Total Synergistics (already blogged about this one…scroll up!) 🙂

Day 2: Agility X agilityx

This one is a cardio/plyometric workout that utilizes a couple of pieces of tape on your floor, to help guide your movements a little better (truth be told…I did it without the tape, it can be done!). This is a good workout. It definitely got my heart pumping without TOO much jumping and joint-jarring!

Day 3: Yoga


If you did P90X, you probably have hated the thought of doing yoga ever since! I do know a few people who loved it, but for me…it was 90 minutes that actually made me want to throw up! Too much downward-dogging for me, for TOO long! This one was a much more relaxed pace. You spend time in the poses and I liked it SO much better. You can see…I’m still not very good at it, but it’s a goal of mine to get better.

Day 4: The Challenge

“The Challenge” is all push-ups and pull-ups, but as you can see in my video, I don’t do ‘actual’ pull-ups…YET! But that’s another goal of mine: to be doing actual pull-ups by the time these 90 days are done! Holy moly were my back, lats and chest sore the next day! I couldn’t twist, giggle or put on a coat without feeling it!

Day 5: CVX


LOVED this workout! Cardio, with a light weight! The modifier used a basketball. The key is to use a little resistance if/when you can, and drop it when you have to. And as you can see…my son thought it was a hoot, too! He’s used to watching me do my workout videos, and this is the first time he was entertained by the trainer. I can’t wait to do this one again!

Day 6: The Warrior

super_saturday_1-14 (1)

I did this workout with 400 other Beachbody coaches AFTER doing a glow TurboKick workout! Talk about OUCH! This is a body-weight resistance workout with planks and push-ups and core work, plus lunges and all kinds of good stuff!

Day 7: Dynamix


And finally, Day 7 was an optional rest day, or Dynamix. I chose to do the workout, just cause I wanted to see what a dynamix was! I was pleasantly pleased! 🙂 It was stretching and strengthening without being boring. It really felt good after my week of workouts, and it still felt like a workout, too!

In short…I am SUPER excited about this program! I’ve told my test group, and I’ll tell you too…this may go down as one of my all-time favorites! I am so excited about the results I’m seeing so far, and look forward to seeing how well we all do with it!

I’m planning to put together another test group for anyone who missed out on the first one. The challenge pack is on sale through the end of the month, so now is a great time to get ready to start your own transformation. If you’d like a spot in the next group, starting Monday February 3, leave your name below.

It’s NOT Just for CHICKS, Men can do it TOO!


Here’s a funny story: My husband is a sucker for an infomercial! Late one night, sitting on the couch, Tony Horton’s abs and promises of a rock hard body in JUST 90 days were more than my husband could resist! And what a coincidence…his 20 year reunion was exactly 3 months away! Perfect right!?

This was back in 2009 – of course BEFORE I was a Beachbody coach – so he dialed the number, and help was on the way! Finally the package arrived!!! Joy! Bliss! He tore it open, checked out the schedule, organized the dvd’s and was ready to get his results! He did the first workout. Umm….ok…that was hard! I was invited along for the second and third workouts. Ya…it was becoming clear, that these results weren’t going to come quite as quickly and/or easily as they did in that 20 minute infomercial.

By about the 5th workout, he was done. Granted…this was a different time in his life. I am fairly certain that he could pop in any one of those workouts now and crush it! Easy Peasy!

But…I’m not going to lie…at the time… I was a little ticked off! I mean, he had just spent about $100 on this program that he used for 1 out of the prescribed 12 weeks!? I declared that someone was going to get our money’s worth out of those dvd’s…and I guessed it was going to have to be me!

I got out the schedule, hung it up where I could check it every day and was determined to do ALL 90 days…as written. I did end up needing to make a couple of modifications. For some reason, the Yoga X workout (the one that I thought would be the easiest!) actually made me sick! LOL! I did it one time all of the way through and actually felt like I would throw up; too many downward dogs for my shaky equilibrium to handle! So I just subbed in an alternate workout on those days (Core Synergistics usually). Also, I didn’t have a pull-up bar, nor was I capable of doing an actual pull-up at the time, so I used strong resistance bands, anchored over a door, and did lat-pull downs instead.



Yes it was hard. But I completed ALL 90 days!! And I also got in really good shape for my husband’s class reunion (probably not exactly what he had in mind! LOL!). Money well spent. This was my FIRST full 90 day Beachbody program, and I was hooked! I got amazing results, at home, with 4 kids! It can be done. I’ve completed several 90 day programs since then, because I’m a sucker for a calendar with little boxes to check off as I go! 🙂

This month P90X and P90X2 are BOTH on sale in Challenge Packs. So, if you have a reunion, party, wedding, or LIFE you’re trying to get hot for…this is your chance! You don’t have to do it alone either. If you purchase a challenge pack, you will be invited to join my November challenge/support group. These groups work so well because Fitness + Nutrition + Accountability = SUCCESS! Sometimes it’s just the support and accountability that you need to get it done. I’ll be your coach, and help you every step of the way. Promise! Next group starts Monday November 4th! Ready? Click HERE!

P90X3-Test-Group-ResultsAnd if you didn’t already know…this is all leading up to the big P90X3 coming out SOON! Check it out!








If you’d like to be the first to know when it’s available, sign up here, and you’ll get it while it’s HOT (expected to be in HIGH demand!)



Chicken, Veggie, Berry Workout Salad


Do you like salads? Are you a multi-tasker? You simply HAVE to try this recipe! It’s so good, AND good for you! In just a few simple steps, you’ll have a beautiful and delicious salad that you can feel GOOD about eating! The ingredients are flexible, use what you like, don’t use what you don’t like, get it!? But the steps are absolutely a MUST! Non-negotiable! The salad won’t turn out right if you don’t do it right!


  • 2-3 chicken breasts (or more, depending on how many people you’re feeding, and how chicken-y you like your salads)
  • 1 lemon
  • garlic salt
  • ground black pepper
  • olive oil
  • lettuce of your choice
  • veggies of your choice, but might I suggest the following: tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet bell peppers, green onions, avocado, celery…
  • berries of your choice: Strawberries and/or raspberries are deelish!
  • nuts or crunchy bits of your choice: I prefer slivered almonds.
  • reduced fat feta cheese (or not, up to you)

For the dressing:

  • olive oil (extra-virginy, of course)
  • balsamic vinegar (a goon one!)
  • Dijon mustard
  • s&p, or Spike, or Mrs. Dash…whatever you prefer


  • meat pounder or rolling-pin
  • gallon-size Ziploc bags
  • gym shoes/clothes
  • wrist watch/clock/timing device

STEPS TO TAKE (a.k.a. Instructions)

  1. Put your chicken breasts into a Ziploc bag. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice (or the bottle kind will do in a pinch), a little drizzle of olive oil (maybe 1-2 teaspoons) a dash of garlic salt and some ground black pepper (to taste). *I don’t often measure when I cook…so that’s the best I can do. pounded_chicken
  2. POUND out your frustrations until your breasts (correction: the CHICKEN breasts) are the same thickness throughout, about 1/2″-3/4″
  3. Place chicken in the refrigerator.
  4. Lace up your gym shoes.
  5. Get dressed in the appropriate workout attire.
  6. CRITICAL STEP! Workout for at least 45 minutes! No less! (More is acceptable, as long as it’s not overnight) Feel free to choose whatever exercise method you like. Might I suggest: a jog/run/walk outside if it’s nice weather, pop in your favorite workout DVD (Insanity, Chalean Extreme, Turbo Fire, Les Mills Pump, P90X…etc…), a yoga class, pump some iron! You get the idea! lacing_up
  7. When your time is up, place chicken breasts on a pre-heated grill and cook for about 5 minutes on each side.
  8. Chop up lettuce and veggies. *Don’t forget to flip those chicken boobs after 5 minutes!
  9. Whisk approximately 1 part olive oil to 2 parts balsamic vinegar + 1/2 part Dijon , minced garlic + seasonings in a small bowl.
  10. Toss the dressing with lettuce.
  11. Top with chopped veggies.
  12. Retrieve chicken from the grill, slice into strips and place desired amount on top of individually portioned salads.
  13. Don’t forget the nuts and berries!
  14. Enjoy!
  15. Shower!


This is BIG News!

I bought a bikini!  bikini

Now…I didn’t say that I was going to wear it, but the mere fact that I bought it speaks VOLUMES!

I was trying to recall a time when I wore one of these suckers, and I think I can remember wearing one maybe twice! Even back in the day when I SHOULD have been able to wear one with confidence, I just didn’t. I’ve always been a pretty self-conscious person, so it’s just never been in my comfort zone. BUT, I’m envious of people who are so self-assured, no matter what their body looks like, that they can step out confidently in whatever what they wear!

Adding to my negative body image and lack of self-confidence, I’ve had 4 C-sections 2 of which went TERRIBLY wrong and left me with really gnarly scars! I’m extremely self-conscious and hyper-aware of one in particular, and it bothers me to no end. I dread the thought of anyone seeing it. 🙁 Now…if you look back through some of the before/after pictures, you will see what I’m talking about. It runs down vertically from my belly button. The inside of that scar adhered itself to my abdominal wall, leaving two bulges on the sides. No matter how much belly fat I lose, it’ll always look like this. 🙁 My dear sweet children tell me that it looks like a “butt”. I can’t believe I’m even writing that sentence down to be read by anyone and everyone. We all have our “issues” right? Well, this is mine. But maybe it’s like a Band-Aid? Maybe I just need to rip it off, let the world see what’s underneath, and get over it!

My confidence is building, each and every day. I’m getting close to feeling like I could do it! I’m talking myself into not caring if anyone notices my flaws and/or scars. This health and fitness journey has been very empowering for me, and has boosted my self-esteem more than any time I can remember! More important than losing weight and building muscle is the fact that I’m building my confidence. When you become more confident, you are just more comfortable in your own skin. When you’re comfortable, you’re happy. And when you’re happy…anything is possible. You can do anything! You might even wear a bikini. 🙂

*Want to start you own health and fitness journey. Join my next 30 day challenge! Want more information? Click “30 Day Challenge” at the top of this page.

This MIGHT be for YOU!


So, if you read my last post…then continue on now. If not, I’ll give you a minute to go and check it out….

….OK, Now, you’ve seen my before and after pictures. The first picture was taken in August 2012, just a few weeks before I decided to go for it as a Beachbody coach. And the second picture is me now, in February 2013, having too much fun to even call my job ‘work’. I’m 5 months in as a coach now, getting in the best shape of my entire life and getting paid on top of it! I get to pay it forward too, and help other people who are on their own journeys. I get to share health and fitness with my friends and family, which has been so fun and rewarding! It wasn’t a step I was totally sure about taking at first. I had some doubts and reservations, but after the first step, I started sprinting! And I haven’t looked back or regretted it for one minute.

If you enjoy helping others…If you like the idea of getting paid to get fit…If you LOVE the idea of being able to work from home, be your own boss and set your own hours…If you would enjoy earning some extra income WHILE helping to end the trend of obesity…than you should check it out!

If you’ve ever considered coaching, or just want to hear more, I’m doing a quick webinar tomorrow night @9:00 EST. It should only last about 30 minutes. I’ll tell my story, and explain a little bit more about what coaching is, and what I do, and how you might enjoy it, too! You can register here:

“See” you then! 🙂
