SUCCESS CLUB TRIP | 2020

Jan 16, 2019

There is nothing like getting an email from your company saying "It's time to register for your trip!" So excited to go back to our honeymoon spot in Punta Cana! This will be the 19th {free} trip I've earned from Beachbody in 6 years. (side note: I never earned ONE trip from my previous job in the corporate world in the four years I was there). And to know that I earned this trip for my & my husband simply by HELPING PEOPLE every month get healthy & fit or to start an online business of their own, is even MORE rewarding <3

New Years resolutions


I've spent the last few days talking with more busy mamas & women than ever who are ready to CHANGE THEIR LIVES in 2019 🙌🏼 And I could not be more excited to give them the same tools that have helped me to get & STAY healthy and fit for the last 5 1/2 years.

With no gym needed, they'll get:

- short & effective home workouts that WORK,
- programs anywhere from 20-60 min a day to fit their busy lifestyle,
- from just 4 to 7 days a week,
- from cardio to weight lifting to yoga to kickboxing,
- from beginner (w/ a modifier) to moderate to advanced,
- with a simple, easy-to-follow eating plan,
- a quick & convenient all natural shake to help them lose weight, give them energy, stay fuller longer, and get rid of sugar & junk food cravings,
- and MOST IMPORTANTLY... an online group full of other women with the same goals to give them daily MOTIVATION, SUPPORT & ACCOUNTABILITY!

THIS is what I have been doing for the last 5 1/2 years and it works bc it's NOT a diet - but rather a LIFESTYLE. You can have cheats, live your life, and (bc it's all on wifi) you can take this lifestyle with you anywhere you go - even at the beach!

30 days of MIND, BODY & SOUL

Oct 22, 2018

MIND BODY SOUL


I have never been more excited for a group since I started coaching because THIS group is one I truly believe EVERYONE needs. It all started with my own search to find BALANCE, reduce STRESS / ANXIETY, to be more MINDFUL and live in the PRESENT, as well as trying to become a "morning person". When you can achieve that, along with taking care of your body with healthy foods, water & exercise, amazing things can happen!

You are HAPPIER, have a greater sense of PEACE, you're more PRODUCTIVE, SLEEPING better, FEELING better, more PATIENT, POSITIVE, have more ENERGY & FOCUS... which can improve nearly every area of your LIFE, your RELATIONSHIPS, your WORK, etc. And can't we ALL use that?





For 30 days, we will be focusing on clean eating, the workout program of your choice, a short daily meditation (which you'll get in a free app), Shakeology for 30 days (to fill our bodies with vitamins, minerals, proteins, probiotics and superfoods), plus we'll be reading the book 'The Miracle Morning' - a book that has COMPLETELY changed my life. It’s a quick read that will help you to get up early and start your day with meditation, positive affirmations, exercise, healhty foods, goal setting & more... all before 8am. It's one of the BEST books I've read I’m giving a FREE book to the first 10 people who sign up.

The group itself is free, as well as the Meditation app & The Miracle Morning book (if you’re one of the first 10). The only thing you’ll need to purchase is your challenge pack which includes: ALL of the workout programs on Beachbody OnDemand (which you’ll have access to for ONE FULL YEAR), all of the nutrition plans, a 30-day supply of Shakeology & a shaker cup, a set of portion control containers - all together for 160. Plus you’ll get ME as your free coach & 24/7 access to the group - which is filling up fast! Are you ready?


ZUCCHINI PASTA!

Sep 25, 2018

ZUCCHINI PASTA


One of our fav dinners & alternatives to pasta!  I love carbs (who doesn't) but I've been trying to avoid them at dinner time so lately we've been swapping the heavy pasta for zucchini noodles (aka #zoodles)!

I learned when I did our new nutrition program a few months back that our dinner plates should be 75% veggies & 25% proteins so we've been making simple swaps like this and surprisingly it's also super easy to make!

TIP: You will need a spiralizer.  There are lots of spiralizers out there to make zoodles but THIS is the one we have.  It's inexpensive and works great!  


INGREDIENTS
5 organic zucchinis (or approx 3.5 lbs)
1 pound of organic ground turkey (or your choice of protein)
1 jar of sauce (I love Classico's Organic Marinara)
1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or Avocado Oil)
Parmesan, optional. (I love Classico's Natural parmesan cheese because there are no artificial ingredients or fillers)


DIRECTIONS
1. First wash the zucchini and cut off one end with a chef knife.
2. Then follow the instructions on your spiralizer to turn your zucchini into noodles.
3. Cook turkey meat in a pan and heat your sauce a separate saucepan.
4. In a large pot, heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat.
5. Add zucchini noodles and stir frequently.
6. Let cook for approximately 5-10 minutes, or until soft (do not overcook).
7. Once cooked, drain any excess water from the pot.
8. Add turkey meat and sauce, stir then serve. Top with parmesan & enjoy!

Makes approximately 4 servings.

From Full-time Employee to Part-time Mompreneur and how YOU can too!

It's not every day I get dressed up to work at home (actually 99.9% of days I'm in yoga pants, a messy bun & a t-shirt) but today I was asked to speak to a top team in our company on what it takes to be successful in this business.

I wish I had all these secret tips to give them... but the truth is, I just wanted it bad enough & was willing to work incredibly hard every day for it - because I wanted to change my life & my family's lives. I woke up one day & realized I was unhappy, unfulfilled, out of shape and tired of living paycheck to paycheck. I just wanted to be happy, be healthy, to do something that made a positive impact in this world, to have more freedom in my life, and most of all - be HOME with my baby.

So I said to myself - you have 2 choices... 1) You can CHANGE your life OR 2) Do nothing - and in one year from now, you'll be in the EXACT same place as you are today. And that second answer scared me more than anything. So when I found this business, I made a decision to go ALL IN. Not "try", but DO whatever it took to figure it out, MAKE it work and never give up.
.
My husband was 10000% skeptical (at the time lol), I hadn't worked out in 2 years, I barely had 100 friends on FB, I was SUPER shy (still am), super private, worked 60 hrs a week, had a busy 2 yr old at home, AND to top it off, we didn't even HAVE the 160 dollars it cost to even START this business.... but I did it anyways.

Moral of the story: If you have a goal or a dream, don't let anyone or anything stop you from pursuing it. And if there's one piece of advice I can give you - BELIEVE IN YOURSELF  Your dreams are not stupid and they are not crazy. If you see a better life for yourself, YOU CAN HAVE IT. Don't let YOU be the only one stopping you from achieving it. I always tell people - if I can do this, ANYONE can. I am nothing special - just a girl who wanted more for her life & chose to follow her dreams. And if you're reading this & have been looking for a sign - THIS IS IT. #theresroomforYOU
