You Don’t Have To Be A Size 2 To Inspire Others

Truth in the fact that you don’t have to have a Transformation Story to be a great inspiration to others.  This gal is one of the coaches in our team and I hope you watch her video and/or read her post…and realize you are not alone.  No matter what size you are, if you are working towards a better you, you are a winner.

“To have Beachbody share my story with 293+K coaches and the world is one of the highlights of my life during the quarterly Super Saturday in April 2015. As a plus size woman on a journey to fit, my hope, when I started, was to inspire one person by sharing my journey. To share what it looked like, sounded like, to show a body with a belly, modifications, hope, and empowerment. All of this was born out of frustration because I could not find someone like me sharing their journey, only their after. I didn’t want to hate myself. I wanted to give back to a body that saved me from many layers of pure hell… My body didn’t fail me in the 150 lbs I gained. It found a way to SAVE me. Now I am giving back by focusing on a healthier life. I knew if I was searching, others were too.

We are not a before, we are not an after, we are forever a work in progress. It is a journey. Embrace the struggle. I didn’t understand why we went through all we did. In the video I said, I could not understand what we did wrong. Now I understand, we went through all we did so we can do what it is that we do now. We are stronger, better people, and humbled. The greatest gift can come out of our worst moments. I understand why now. I am living it. The chapter that was shared in the video is closed. Our next chapter has only just begun.

I wasn’t a Beachbody coach when I started. Actually, I didn’t want to have anything to do with it. My Beachbody coach experience started with one person who was just supportive, and that opened up a whole new world of people to me. We would not be where we are today if we didn’t commit to just moving our bodies, if our coach didn’t tell us about the discount, or if he was shy to tell me about coaching (regardless of HOW bad my attitude was at the time, LOL). IF he didn’t, we wouldn’t… be where we are today. I started as a coach at over 300 lbs. I started my journey at over 330 lbs. With nothing… empty. In my heart, in my hope, in my bank account. Our life has been filled by helping others on their journey. If my coach, @jimmyhaysnelson didn’t share this with us, we would NOT be here today. It is thanks to my coach and Beachbody. Beachbody has been a blessing and it is a gift that I share with everyone.

I am a PROUD Plus Size Beachbody Coach, just a chick on a journey to fit, sharing with others. The amazing part? I get to the be a part of the journey of 100’s of thousands of people indirectly and a small group directly.

HUGE thank you to Beachbody. What a heart they have for ALL of us!”

How To Talk Money With Your Honey

DavesTipAfter a perfect yoga class not so long ago, I invited a friend over for a glass of wine.  Well we may have finished the bottle, but at least we went to class first!  As we were sitting around sipping and being blissful, the conversation about relationships and money came up.

It was a profound enough conversation, I decided to so some research (not that night, of course) and I came upon a study that couples who “disagree about finances once a week” are more than 30 percent more likely to get divorced than couples that report “disagreeing about finances a few times a month.” Yikes!

If you are married or in a relationship, it’s critical to learn how to talk about money in a healthy way.  After all, money will be around your entire lives, so you may as well take the time to learn how to talk about it, manage it and use it more effectively as a couple.  While every couple is different in terms of how they relate to and manage their finances, here are some basic tips to help you talk money with your honey.

Learn about each other’s money history

When you learn about each other’s money history, it allows you to have more compassion and understanding about your partner’s current money behaviors.  For example, maybe your significant other grew up in a household that was always stressed about money, living paycheck to paycheck.  This may play into how they manage their finances today.  When you understand each other’s past financial experiences, you can be sensitive with one another as you drop what no longer fits and work on improving your money management skills.

Talk about money in weekly money dates

Most couples usually have the money talks at the worst possible time.  One partner comes home after a long day at work only to be confronted about why they aren’t saving for retirement or why they spent so much on a recent purchase. Blaming your significant other about money stress can be easy when you don’t have another approach.  But instead of bombarding each other with your money worries, schedule weekly money dates where you can both commit to coming together to discuss money and your financial goals.  This way, you have devoted time to address finances together and can have a more thoughtful discussion.

Practice, practice, practice

Like anything else in life, the more you practice, the easier it becomes.  Anything new can be hard, but over time, if you make a point to have regular conversations about your finances, the easier it will be. Keep going and remember the “why” behind these talks.

Remember, you’re not alone. We are all challenged by money talks with our loved ones. But take the steps necessary to change this—for yourself and for your relationship.

Give Yourself A Raise

PayRaiseMy weekly Beachbody paycheck this WEEK was wayyyy bigger than the whole month of February 2014.

It’s amazing how just wanting to have accountability with my own weight loss turned into all of this, I am so thankful and blessed!

Not bragging. I’ve been very consistent and this is the outcome. Just showing what’s possible with a few hours a week.

I have a special saving account just for all my Beachbody money and it’s so nice to see that amount grow, and grow each week.  I am looking forward to the day where my checks match, then exceed the checks from my day-job.  I know I still have a lot of work to do, but I don’t see my boss giving me a $10,000 raise this year, so I have to earn it myself by helping others.

If you’re looking to make some extra income, it’s not easy, but we can help you help others too.

Is it Easy? Is it Worth It? Want to Learn More?

Sneak Peek

If I were to tell you owning a successful Beachbody business is easy, would you believe me?!?  Well you shouldn’t!!!!  ITS HARD HARD WORK!!!!  Not only do you have to put in what you want out, but you always have to be productive to grow!  The second you stop, your business stops.

 

12 months ago I would have never imagined being here today, but I put the credit to the team that I’m bringing on, and the momentum they are building.  Being a leader is hard, but when you show that consistency is key– duplication is the payoff!

Some have been working hard for weeks, months, or even years. They have to think of how far they have come—- not how far they have to go!!!  One day at a time, one pound at a time, and one life changed at a time.  I know they will keep going, the lives they change in this business is worth the sweat and tears!

If you’ve been sitting back, reading my posts, and wondering if this is something YOU would like to be a part of, why not check it out in a no-pressure environment.

Our team is hosting a private and free 5-day invitation to preview what we do as Beachbody coaches.  Basically you watch a video or two and read a post or two per day for 5 days.  We teach you how we use our own amazing products, share with others, and support each other to end the trend of obesity.  At the end of the week, you let us know if you want to:

  1. take a pass (and we will respect that decision with NO pressure!)
  2. want to learn more
  3. get started

Feel free to privately fill out the form below and I will get back to you withing 24 hours.  Our Sneak Peak starts Monday, March 16th, but we add people on Sunday March 15th so you need to be ready to watch a 4 minute welcome video then.  Look forward to hearing from you!

Empowered Women

BalanceDid you know that 82% of women who make over 100K a year do it through running a home business?

Is this you?

I’m posting this on Sunday night.  Many of you are putting the kids to bed, finishing up tasks around the house, and possibly dreading going to work tomorrow and doing it all over again.

In 2015, it is an unpleasant reality that no one seems to want to address. A large number of the population was hit with substantial loss of income and savings during the recent economic meltdown. Many feel that they have no way to build back their savings in order to retire comfortably and securely. Many now believe that there just isn’t enough time left to turn it around.

I encourage you to think back to a year ago:  March 1, 2014.  Do you know where you were?  Do you know what you were doing?  Was it pretty much the same thing? – balancing work and family and a little “me” time.  Has your income remained flat, expenses skyrocketed, and savings/retirement dwindled?  Most importantly, has your personal health taken a back-seat to everything else that is present in your life?

I am putting in the hours and I am building my business on the side, and I DO NOT expect to be doing both a year or two from now.  It’s hard work.  It causes friction in the family.  It doesn’t always seem worth it.  But it is.  It will be. And I’d love for you to join me.

Let me help you Fire Your Boss.

Let’s be a T.E.A.M. – because Together Everyone Achieves More.

If you’d prefer to private message me, you can do so below.  It will go to my personal email and I will respond within 24 hours.  Lets do this.

Biggest Loser Challenge Group – Final Stats!

What an AMAZING month we had in our private Facebook Challenge Group for support and accountability.  Just over 30 individuals joined us for a weight loss challenge where they checked in daily with what they ate for the day, what workout they did, what Shakeology flavor and recipe they consumed, and any positive comments or personal struggles they encountered over the 30 days.  Well this group did absolutely incredible and lost and astonishing 200+ lbs. and even more inches.  BiggestLoserFinalStats

There was an investment to purchase their program and Shakeology and program, and everyone ponied up $20 for the pot, and the top 3 challengers took home over $700 cold hard cash.

We also gave out prizes for most inches lost, most supportive group member, and most noticeable visible transformation.

It’s now February 1st.  If you’re like most of us, you weighed in on January 1st and were determined to make 2015 a year of health and fitness goals.  Ask yourself:  have I made progress toward these goals and am I proud of what I am achieving so far?  If so, GREAT!  How do you do it, and would you like to help others achieve these goals?  And if you haven’t made much progress, what’s keeping you from these goals, and what can I do to help?
