Time for Change

October_banner

It was this time about 3 years ago that I took a look at myself in the mirror and decided I was finally done being unhappy! I had been stuck in a rut for FAR too long. Looking at pictures of myself from summer vacations really opened my eyes to what was happening. It was slow, but I was steadily gaining weight and finding it harder and harder to fit into my clothes.

August 2012 Not happy with this picture at all!
August 2012
Not happy with this picture at all!

There were a lot of things I didn’t want to admit to myself. I wasn’t REALLY giving it my all with workouts anymore. I was just kinda going through the motions. I wasn’t REALLY eating all that healthy. There was a lot of processed garbage finding its way into my grocery cart. Convenience trumped health. I was complacent, uncommitted and UN-motivated!

I think you go through phases when this starts to happen.

1. DENIAL: It’s my clothes. They shrunk. My scale must be off! (Don’t tell me you haven’t tried to convince yourself with these same lies!)

2. AVOIDANCE: Scale? What scale? I like baggy, stretchy clothes anyway.

3. DEPRESSION: Why is this happening?! I workout! I eat ‘pretty’ healthy food. It’s not fair! Get away from me with that camera! WAHHH!!! I’m going to assume the fetal position in a dark room. Leave me alone!

4. DEFEAT: Well, what the hell. I’m getting older. This is just what happens. There isn’t ANYTHING I can do about it. I’m not going to live the rest of my life worrying about it. I want to ENJOY life and eat whatever the hell I want. Working out is stupid. I don’t care anymore.

5. REALIZATION: I feel like shit. I don’t fit into any of my clothes. I’m tired all of the time. I’m not enjoying life at all right now! I’m sick of feeling like this. I gotta do something!

What stage are you in? If you’re in 1-4, let me save you the trouble and spoil the ending. You’ll eventually get to #5, because no matter how hard we try to convince ourselves that we can’t, or don’t want to feel¬†look and feel healthy, we do. You’re not kidding anyone (or yourself) when you say otherwise.

There’s a happy ending though! ūüôā I had to dig deeper than ever, and really connect with WHY I wanted/needed to make some changes, and really give it my absolute, 100% ALL!

If you want to know EXACTLY what I did…I’ll tell you! ūüôā

  • I invested in myself and added strength training to my life! Not just half-ass, cute little pink dumbbells, but a program that taught me chicks CAN and SHOULD lift HEAVY weights! Nothing has changed my body more than that did!
  • I committed to eating 100% CLEAN for 21 days straight! NO processed food, no alcohol, no soda, no eating out, etc. Just whole foods, prepared at home, where I could control every bite. And one Shakeology (all natural, dense nutrition, super food meal replacement that I FIRMLY believe boosted¬†my results!) Now this might seem extreme, but I was so focused on what I wanted, I just laid it all out there to my husband and my family. They were supportive, and only made fun of me a little! ūüėČ
  • I joined a group of other people who were working on their own health and fitness goals, and the support and accountability was the extra OOMPH that had been missing, and I really needed it!

In 25 days, I lost 8 pounds and 9.5 inches! That was the fuel I needed to fuel my fire and keep going!

Clean Eating Results

After 90 days…

turbo_clx_results

But forget the pounds and the pictures…what you can’t see here is the transformation that took place in how I felt! I couldn’t believe what I was doing! I wasn’t quite done yet! I went on to lose 8 more pounds and about 6 more inches.¬†resultsbefore_after_Collage_results

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So…are you ready to start your journey?! Fall is the PERFECT time to make some changes and turn over a new leaf!

I think Peter Brady said it BEST!

Join me starting Monday October 5 and see what you can achieve when you put your mind to it! We’ll work together to find what’s going to work for you, and get you the results that you’ve been wanting! I’m going to offer exactly what worked for me. A private daily support and accountability group (right on Facebook) where I share tips, recipes, and motivation. We post daily to the group to keep each other on track.

Don’t wait for this. Next thing you know, ready or not, the holidays will be here! Don’t wait until after to get serious. Start now! There are 98 days until 2016! Think of what you could achieve by then!

Deadline to join is September 28!

Your time is now! Fill out the form below…let’s get started.

 

Get the 21 Day Fix OR Fix Extreme FREE!

What? Come on Angie…you’re pulling my leg!

Nope. It’s true. When you purchase Shakeology this month, you can get the 21 Day Fix ¬†OR ¬†21 Day Fix Extreme for FREE (vs. a one-time shipment of Shakeology). So there it is! ūüôā If you’ve been dying to try either one, NOW is the time to jump on it! When you purchase a “Challenge Pack”, you also get a 30 day FREE trial of Beachbody on Demand – stream your workout anytime/anywhere!

21_promo_aip

 

People in my groups have been LOVING this program month after month because it works! It’s so simple! Dial in your nutrition. Get your portions figured out. Add 30 minutes/day of exercise and you WILL absolutely get results! Women in my groups who stick with it for 21 days generally lose up to 10-15 pounds. Men (for whatever reason) tend to drop even more! Grrr! And when you do several rounds in a row…you’ll end up like Michelle (one of my challenge participants) who has lost 13 pounds and 22¬†inches! And she reports that she’s seeing her ABS for the first time since having her kids! How fantastic right?!

Not familiar with the 21 Day Fix? Or Fix Extreme…watch this video:

Depending on what package you get, you can save $70-$95 dollars this month!

You can also add the 3 Day Refresh if you want a nice kickstart! I lost 5 pounds the last time I did it! (In 3 days!) It’s a nice reboot/refresh before jumping into the 21 days!

Check out some of these amazing transformations!

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!)

The Big Bloom!

big_bloom_banner-2

 

It’s transformation time!

There are buds on the trees. Daffodils and tulips are emerging. The grass is getting greener! Geese are returning after the long winter. I LOVE spring! It’s a time for new beginnings and fresh starts! It’s a time for change. And change is good!

Are you ready to make some changes and get working on your own transformation?
I started my journey about 2 1/2 years ago, and it wasn’t just a physical transformation…I changed inside and out! I have more energy and self esteem than when I was in my 20’s! My 4 kids get the best of me now, instead of the last of me. I’m a better mom, friend and wife as a result of this lifestyle change. And my kids are eating healthier foods, my husband has undergone his own transformation as have many of my friends and family members. One seed planted an entire garden, and it just keeps growing!

I’d love to invite you to join me, on April 20th, to start your journey, or continue a journey that you’ve already started! I’ll provide daily support and motivation, share healthy recipes, and help you stay on track to reach your goals. The group will provide the accountability that is sometimes missing when you join a gym, or try to get results on your own. You’re not alone! I’m here to help you every step of the way!

These groups WORK! Fitness + Nutrition + Support = SUCCESS!!!

DEADLINE TO JOIN IS SUNDAY APRIL 12TH!

BEACHBODY ON DEMAND IS HERE!!!

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.

A STEAL, because you get Shakeology + the NEW Insanity Max 30.
A one-time order of Shakeology by itself, with shipping (because there’s no $2 shipping deal if you’re doing a one-time order) would be somewhere in the ballpark of $150 depending on where you’re located. So it’s like getting Insanity Max 30, a program that gets RESULTS and you’ll have it for life, for $20-30. Or you could think of it as getting the discount on Shakeology.¬†Either way, it’s a great deal!!NEW Coaches can sign up with the challenge pack, save $39.95 on the sign-up fee, AND start saving 25% right away as well as earn a 25% commission when friends and family buy through you!

*When Shaun T was asked how is it different from Insanity and T25, he said essentially (i.e. not direct quote) it’s his only program that truly pushes you to test and track your limits so you can improve your fitness level. But he went on to say “ANYONE CAN DO THIS PROGRAM” because you can choose to see the modifier the whole time and because you can get more done in less time than Insanity (which is easier time-wise and mentally); yet it’s more intense than T25. He went on to say the modifier moves are still very effective to sculpt your body and admittedly in some instances MORE effective in building muscle and fitness than the jumping!

PiYo!!!

Save $70 or $95! YOU decide!

PiYo was such a great program to pair with my marathon training over the summer. All of the strengthening, stretching, flexibility and toning with ZERO impact! It’s been great for challengers who can’t take or don’t WANT the jumping, and joint jarring that comes with some of the other programs.

In November, you can save $$ when you get started with the challenge pack, and you can save even MORE $$$ if you get the challenge pack WITH the wildly popular “3 Day Refresh”. Whether you do it now, or save it for the day after Thanksgiving, you’ll be SET up for success!!! The average American gains 7-12 pounds over the holiday! If you set yourself up now, you’ll LOSE at least that much, and feel amazing BEFORE the New Year!

Option 1: Save $70

Need a Chocolate FIX?

I didn’t know what else to call these. I could have gone with: “Super-food, Chocolaty Nut Balls”, or “Balls of Chocolate Goodness” (nah!), or maybe “Super-food Nutrition & Protein in One Delicious Little Bite of Nutty Chocolate”? Whatever you like to call them, they’re a hit at my house!

*TIP: Hide them if you want to keep them around for more than a day!

Chocolate Nutty Bites! 

  • 1 Cup old-fashioned oatschocolate_nutty_bites
  • 1/3 C. raw walnuts
  • 1/3 C. raw almonds
  • 1 Scoop Chocolate Shakeology
  • 1/4 t. cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1/4 C. honey
  • 1/4 C. applesauce

 

Directions

  1. Place dry ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend or pulse just until a course meal is formed.
  2. Transfer to a bowl. Add wet ingredients and stir.
  3. Wet hands and roll into rounded teaspoon-sized balls. You should get around 16 with this recipe.
  4. Put into the freezer to firm-up (about 10 minutes). Transfer to a Ziploc bag or air-tight container. I keep mine in the freezer and pop one out when I need a little something sweet.
