Why Become a Beachbody Coach?




Calling anyone who is interested in firing their current boss!! I am serious, how great would it be to fire your boss and work for yourself? If you would have told me that when I was working in the corporate world I would have been all over it asking questions about HOW to do it. 



Well I am here to invite you to what has transformed 
my life and body.

Beachbody Coaching!! 




Now more than ever is a great time to really think about what you want out of life? Do you love your job? Do you love leaving your children every day? Do you love missing out on important events because you can't get off work? Do you love not being able to take vacation days whenever you want? All of these questions were questions I use to answer NO to when I was in the corporate world. Now I am a Stay at Home Mom. Trust me, I never ever thought I was the type of person to be a Stay at home MOM!! I always said that I couldn't be a SAHM and now I am eating my words. Who knew this is where I would be - LOVING being at home raising my kids, LOVING my at home business of a Beachbody Coach, and LOVING making extra cash that we didn't plan on. Woo HOO is all I have to say!! 




I am confident in saying because of the decision I made a a year ago to join this amazing organization that is why I am now loving life and loving being at home with my kids. It all started with me just wanting to get a discount on my shakeology but it developed into so much more. As a stay at home mom and for most families that have chosen to have one parent stay home rather than two in the workforce, you know at times it is a struggle living off of one income. So when I realized their was a potential to make a decent salary from coaching I wanted to learn more. Yes I was stepping outside my comfort zone but I am thankful everyday that I did. Who doesn't want to help contribute to their family financially? An extra $100, extra $1000, and more could be yours if you are ready to take that Leap of faith and join me and our amazing team. 


I took a risk and let me tell you the risk has totally paid off. In just one year we have been able to save money, purchase new big ticket items for our home, pay for our son's tuition, and so much more. Yes, I know we would have eventually been able to do all these things but thankfully we were able to cut a few years off due to my career as a beachbody coach.


So here is your chance, your opportunity to take advantage of a life we all dream about - FIRING YOUR BOSS, STAYING HOME, BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS OF YOUR OWN!!




Want to learn more? Watch this short video and if it speaks to you, APPLY to be a part of my 60 Day Coach Apprenticeship! I am inspired and ready to help change some more lives... and maybe, just maybe YOURS is one of them!

Watch the video: 



My next Coach Apprenticeship starts Monday, Oct. 7th!


The first 2 months you will go through a Dream Team Exclusive training program in addition you will learn from me and what I do with my business & understand how to do it yourself.


THEN pay can increase to around $500-$1,000 weekly (over $50,000 annually) for the next 6-8 months after that. You can expect that number will double or even triple if you follow the to do list I give you and are consistent with your work.


After just 2 years or less you could be earning a 6 figure income and the pay just keeps increasing and there are also incentives for hitting certain goals giving to you like vacations for 2 etc.


Are you interested???

Contact me to receive the application to apply. I am only taking 5 motivated and determined individuals.



Now is the time to learn how to live a 
FIT, HAPPY, and HEALTHY LIfe

Hearty Homemade Tomato Soup


Fall is officially here and the days are getting cooler. 

My house is surrounded by trees so our house always seems chilly. 

Best way to warm up in my opinion is a nice piping hot bowl of SOUP!! 



Ingredients...
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large sweet cooking onion, peeled and chopped
4 ribs celery, trimmed, tough strings removed, chopped
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
3-4 garlic cloves, peeled
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and chopped
2 cups fresh Roma Tomatoes or one 28 ounce can plum tomatoes
4 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable stock OR water
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon sea salt
sprinkle ground black pepper
2 low sodium chicken or vegetable natural bouillon cubes

Directions...
1. In a heavy stockpot heat olive oil over medium high heat.  Add all chopped vegetables and saute until soft and onion is translucent.  
2. Reduce heat to medium and add tomatoes, stock or water, basil, oregano, sea salt, black pepper, and bouillon cubes.
3. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low.  Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
4. Using a hand-held blender, puree soup to uniform consistency. 
5. Remove from heat and serve.  Garnish with a dollop of plain Greek Yogurt. 

I made mine a bit thicker by accident and normally I would not like this consistency but this particular soup it worked well.  

If you try this recipe I would love to hear your feedback - good or bad I take it all!! I found this recipe from the Tosca Reno Eat Clean Diet for Family & Kids book.  Love her and love her books!! I have learned so much from her, her website, and her books.  

Are you a clean eater? New to clean eating? or need a major overhaul on what you eat?  Message Me - I would love to learn more about your eating lifestyle. If you need help figuring out how to eat healthier or even want to see what clean eating is all about I can HELP!!  Each month I host two different kinds of online support and accountability groups.  One I host is a 30 day Healthy Eating group and the other is a healthy eating and fitness group.  If you would like more information on either of these groups or just want to pick my brain and chat, feel free to message me or a leave a comment below.  If it wasn't for a friend introducing me to the Clean Eating lifestyle who knows where I would be today!! It is so very nice and comforting when we can lean on others to help support and guide us! 

Now is the time to learn how to live a 
FIT, HAPPY, and HEALTHY Life

What is a Challenge Group (a.k.a Health and Fitness Group)?

I get asked these questions all the time - 
What is a Challenge Group? What is a Health and Fitness Group? What is a Support and Accountability group? 
Guess what - they are all referring to the same type of group!! 
Simply different names being used!! 

The next question I get is how will a group help me get fit and healthy? 

Guess what? 
I had the same questions myself before I committed to joining my first Challenge Group!  

Here is a sneak peak into WHY 
Challenge groups are the way to go...
 


The Basics...What is a Challenge Group?

Groups that are formed to help you reach your ultimate health and fitness goals.
They range anywhere from 10 days to 90 days.
Closed group on Facebook
5 or more people plus me, Your Coach, with 1:1 interaction
Support, motivation, Accountability
Beachbody Workout, Shakeology, and Clean Eating



What are the requirements to take part in a Challenge Group?

1. Shakeology - you will be drinking Shakeology once per day.  If you do not already have Shakeolgoy you must invest in it.  I need to know that if I am going to invest my time in you , you are willing to invest in your own health. 

2.  A Beachbody Fitness program of your choice. I am more than happy to help you pick the program that is right for you and the results you want to achieve. (Note: some challenge groups a fitness program is optional)

3.  You need to be an active member of the challenge group. I set up a private facebook group where only members of the challenge are invited to join.  What does an active member of the group mean?  It means you need to check into the group daily, workout on your own, post your daily ratings, and support your fellow challengers!  




Challenge Groups are more than just purchasing a Beachbody fitness program and drinking Shakeology every day.  It's more than just doing TurboFire, P90x, Insanity, Chalean Extreme, or Les Mills Combat.  It's more than a facebook group!

A challenge group becomes your support system, your fitness family, a place to feel secure and comfortable talking about your struggles, a place to get motivation when you want to quit, a place to improve your body and your mind, a place to learn about fueling your body for energy and not comfort, a place where you can get support from the comfort or your own home, 
the BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD because ultimately it helps you take care of YOU!!

Here are testimonies from other people who have taken part in a 
challenge group 













































I have challengers of every shape and size.  Stay at home moms and dads, single men and ladies, working moms and dad, college students, people training for marathons, runners, women wanting their prebaby body's back, and people who just want to be healthy and live longer!! No matter what your body type or your history...it is in the past! This is a new day and this is your chance to change your future.   Time for you to create a healthier lifestyle and to be the best version of you that you can be!  

So what are you waiting for?!?!




Why would you want to waste another day feeling 
BLAH, FRUMPY, SICK, and TIRED?!?!  
(Maybe this sounds a little harsh but I know this is how some of us feel - at least I know this is how I felt before I started).  

My Next Challenge Group is forming NOW!!!! 
Reserve your spot today!! 
The only thing you have to lose is a few pounds!!!!
but there is so much to gain!!




My passion and my goal is to help others to learn 

how to live a 

FIT, HAPPY, and HEALTHY Life 

and we will do it 

TOGETHER!!!!

The Importance of Meal Planning!!

Why oh why do I always talk about meal planning and why oh why do I share my meal plan with you all each week?  

Meal planning has completely changed the way I and my family eat, it helped me lose weight and keep it off, it helps me save a ton of money on groceries each month, and I love knowing I am prepared!! 

Clean eating has also shown me that it is very true the foods we eat can either give us the fuel to run efficiently or stop us dead in our tracks.  The more I read the more I learn and to me knowledge is POWER!  I was one who never read the ingredient label on packages before, now that is the first thing I check out.  I look for products with the least amount of ingredients and make sure I know what all the ingredients are.  If I can pronounce the word, most likely it is a chemical and should not be put into our bodies.  

The saying you are what you eat, is so very true.  Why? 
Every 35 days, Your Skin replaces itself. Your Liver, about a month.  Your body makes these new cells from the food you eat. What you eat literally becomes YOU!! You have a choice of what you are made of.  

I not only noticed a difference in my weight when I started eating clean but I also saw a difference in my complexion - no more breakouts like I use to have, my hair was growing faster and was more shiny and healthy, my nails were looking the best they ever had, and my energy level was through the roof.  There are so  many more benefits to eating the right foods rather than just weight loss.  

On Sunday each week I plan out my meals for the week ahead. Today I started a new fitness program, Les Mills Pump, and so I am trying a few new recipes from the nutrition guide that came with the program.  I also include on my  meal plan my workouts each day.  I base what I am having for my breakfast and morning snack on my workout that morning.  (I workout at 5am so morning is very critical for me to get my day started right).  


Here is my meal plan for the week.  
Please excuse the lopsided picture! 

Ask  yourself this question - why am I NOT planning my meals in advance? 
 Lack of time, don't know where to start, your family eats different meals, your family won't want to eat healthy, etc.  Whatever the reason why might be, I am inviting you to GIVE IT A TRY.  
You will never know if this can benefit you and your family if you don't give it a try.  
What do you have to lose?


When you are ready I will be here to help you ever step of the way!! I was in your position once too wondering if meal planning will really benefit me and I am here to tell you YES!! I have had great success and so many others have too.  I cannot begin to tell you how much easier it makes life having a meal plan done!!   

Take the time right now and read the following statement to yourself, this is your apology letter to your body for not taking better care of it.  

You are making a change that will last a lifetime!! 
Congratulations!!



Now is the time to learn how to live a 
FIT, HAPPY, and HEALTHY Life 
and we will do it

Cinnamon Glazed Popcorn


Friday movie night is not complete unless you have popcorn! Well at less at my house it is this way. Now that we have our own old fashioned popcorn maker I am able to make Clean popcorn for my family. Tonight we also made another clean popcorn recipe and this was Cinnamon Glazed Popcorn! So super yummy and when mixed with the regular popcorn with a touch of sea salt, you have your perfect combination -sweet & salty. Another kid tested mom approved recipe!



Ingredients...
4 cups popped popcorn
2 tablespoons raw honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt 

Directions...
1. Preheat oven at 325 degrees.
2. In a small saucepan, bring honey to a light boil.  Stir in vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. 
3.Put popcorn in large bowl and slowly pour the mixture over your popcorn, stirring constantly. 
4. When popcorn is coated lay it out evenly on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.  
5. Place in oven for 4 minutes. Mix around and leave in oven for 2 more minutes.  
6. Set out to cool
Either enjoy as is or mix it with some lightly sea salted popcorn for that sweet-salty mix.  Enjoy!!
