No one really wants to work out at 5pm on a Saturday after indulging in good food all day, with a bad attitude (#gone) + and a baby nearby...being a baby. - But when your gym is literally always with you, you have MAGICAL pre-workout + you bet 40 ladies last night $20 each that you’d get it done..you get it done 👊🏼 - I don’t say any of this to brag, but to share that if you want to get it done too, for real, like day-after-day-after-day/no excuses, all you’ve gotta do is figure out what works for you + set yourself up right. It took me a long time to get here, so I promise, there’s something for you too. ANND if you need someone to hook you up with the tools I’ve been using for two years now and give you accountability..🙋🏼♀️ #heretohelp
How’d I go from wanting people to like me, to wanting to like MYSELF? I started to imagine who really matters in the end, and I make my choices based on that. When I’m on my death bed thinking back on my life, will I really care that Susie thought I was annoying and weird. Or that Sally didn’t like my picture. No. - Before you make any decision based off of fear of what someone else will think of you, or say about you: picture how you’d view the situation 30 years from now... - Then laugh and go do the thing you want to do, or say the thing you want to say, or be the person YOU want to be. *And yes, this picture was chosen to prove a point, 😂😂😂 #callmeweird #supercute #instagrammodel
I finished my 21 day detox two days ago, and I haven’t shared anything yet because I’m still processing the changes I’ve made, and what it accomplished... - And I hemmed + hawed over sharing these because, for me, it was about so much more than this. Some people may choose to do this reset to lose those last 15 pounds. Or even to begin a new weight-loss journey. But for me, I just needed a freaking reality check. I recognized that I was starting to slip BIG-TIME into old unhealthy habits. I wasn’t eating for fuel, I was eating for fun..to get through the day..as something to look forward too..to make a bad day feel better..as a way to deal with all the emotions that come with becoming a new Mom, and suddenly questioning literally everything in my life. I was eating to handle stress, while also eating to avoid stress, lol. And it happened without me even realizing it. I started picking up little treats, here and there until it became almost every day. I’d feel overwhelmed with something/anything, and find myself in the kitchen trying to forget about it over three bowls of cereal. My grocery cart started having less veggies, and more pints of ice cream appeared. - I was letting it get out of control. And I started to not even care. But, I felt like shit. My daughter wasn’t getting the best version of me, and my husband was tired of me complaining about how terrible I felt after eating SIXTEEN Reeses. (True story.) I was tired. - So I cut the crap, l-i-t-e-r-a-l-l-y. And for three weeks ate ONE HUNDRED % clean. Cooked all my own foods. Sorted through my feelings instead of avoiding them. Learned a lot of patience. A lot of discipline. How to say n-o! I survived the grocery stores during the holidays, dealt with a teething baby and even switched over my antidepressant medication mid-reset. - A lot happened. And I feel, really, really great. Not because of this, even though my stomach is very happy too. But because I can do hard things. And trust me, if I can - you can. If you’re interested in WHAT exactly this program is about, I’ll be going live around noon tomorrow to share what it entailed, the cost (#keepinitreal) + my takeaways. We have SUCH an intimate relati
We just went grocery shopping for Thanksgiving + John bought #allthethings, but I wasn’t eveeen tempted. Really! Know why? Because as I got dressed this morning I thought, “wow. I feel like, REALLY, REALLY GOOD IN THESE LEGGINGS RIGHT NOW.” And then as I danced with Emily in the middle of Target I thought, “wow, I FEEL REALLY, REALLY GOOD RIGHT NOW TOO.” And candy bars have never made me feel either way 😜 - This detox was exactly what I needed right now. I missed that feeling. And as always, I’m here to remind you - you don’t have to live feeling like shit. If you feel stuck, you’ve let things get too far, habits have gotten out of control, trust me - I GET IT. And I can help you find the right tools to get you back on track too. There’s even a mini 3-day version of what I’m doing. So don’t be a stranger. I’m with you 💗
This is definitely not a yoga pose, but just showing off that I’m in a great mood today + that it’s freaking 80 degrees outside so I brought my mat outside again - FINALLY! - I don’t know why I even get bothered when I have “off days” like I did yesterday, because they are ALWAYS followed by better days. Those are the valleys of life and if we peaked every day, we’d probably be A: super bored. And B: wouldn’t know struggle, and since struggle = change and change = LITERALLY LIFE ITSELF. We’d be, dead. - Phew. Get it? Bad days are okay. Problems are okay. Embrace em, take a step back to feel out what’s going on, and then the next day I BET you’re back. Ready to tackle the mountain that is your life. - Am I making any sense? For the record, totally #sober, just weird. Someone asked the other week how high I was + I was like, nope. This brain is all natural, lol. (Asked nicely, not being rude!) But if you like, and want more inspirational rambles, you can join my online wellness community anytime, xx 💗💋
When I decided to start my own business, I had NO IDEA what an “MLM” was. Probably because I hadn’t been on Facebook for a few years, so I hadn’t been exposed yet to alllll there is our there now. And I know, it’s a bit much. So I totally get when people are skeptical + worried about being another annoying person in their friends + families social media feeds. - I think it’s often times done all wrong, because no one wants to be sold to. (Not even me.) But it can be done right, the key is aligning yourself with the RIGHT company for you + being invested in that company not because they pay you, but because you back up what they offer + what they stand for. Before I decided to coach, I researched, A LOT. (Too much, lol.) I knew the story, the products, commission stats, the top coaches, etc. And I had watched @oliviagrist long enough to know that this was the real deal. She bleed Beachbody blue, and I trusted her and before I even began, I trusted in this company too 💗 - So trust me when I say that I get that becoming a “network marketer” is scary. And I can totally relate to the number one fear people have: what will OTHER people think?! (..😱😂🤦🏼♀️) But you whats funny? I’m pretty sure people think BETTER of me now because of this. Because I’m a better person. Because that’s what we do, WE GET BETTER 😉 - And that’s what happens when you do this RIGHT. It’s an incredible opportunity to work for yourself, or have a side hustle or even just a hobby job. Just find a good fit. Do your homework. - ..and if you’re curious if this is it? Shoot me a message to be added to my open house this weekend. It’s no pressure, because trust me - if it’s not for you, it’s not for you!
This is gonna sound crazy, but I was craving some cardio this morning! Maybe it was the Costco froyo I split with my Mother in law yesterday, or the fact that today’s going to be crazy busy + I need to get in a good mental space. ORR, that being around family reminds me how I want to be better? How I want to be an example? WHY this matters? I think that’s a big part of it. I needed that reminder 💗 - Anyways! Feels good to be done + I’m ready to bring this energy into our day because Emily’s about to meet A TON of family, and she’s been super overwhelmed so far with all of this. Lots of crying. And I know a happy Mama makes for a happy baby. And cardio, WEIRDLY makes me happy....when it’s over, at least 😂✌🏻 - Join my at-home workout crew? You know what to do..📲📲📲
This is where it all started for me. Here in this bathroom, was when I said ENOUGH. We were visiting home, March of 2015 + I had just had dinner, dessert, more dessert and was getting ready to go to bed with a stomach ache. And with an “ache” in my heart that I was not living the way I wanted to. I was weak, tired. Felt like C-R-A-P. I was sick. Of myself! - That next weekend, I hit purchase on a dvd program and a “bag of powder,” spending money I thought I didn’t have, joined an online group with a bunch of girls I didn’t know, and it changed my whole life. - It’s not about the abs, but hey - it does symbolize the changes I’ve made. And seriously, it’s not as hard as we sometimes make it out to be. Workouts at home + an easy (and delicious) way to supplement nutrition every day. - It was WAY harder to go to bed like THIS every night. So you know, just sayin. I’m here for ya 😉💗#ALWAYS - It’s day 6 of my online challenge, and it’s the reason I showed up today. (AND was done at 6AM too thank you very much!) I know I don’t have to, but I’ll keep saying it because that’s my job, but you’re invited to join us in at any time + take that first step towards a new you too.
Still trying to find my life today. Does it feel like Friday to anyone else? I swear, it’s actually Friday. Hoping this mid-afternoon snack (a lint roller 😂) and then eventually a shower will bring me back. - Besides the candy hangover, I think I'm definitely going through something. I actually just put in a call to my doctor, because I'm not sure if it's my meds - or what. But having a hard time finding my life, lol. Yesterday I felt good, today - not so much. I actually couldn't even finish my workout today. I couldn't do it. I was halfway through, got into a childs pose, and just stayed there. And that is NOT like me. Especially when I'm leading 40 people in my online challenge, because I commit to setting the example. And I don’t want anyone else to quit on themselves. But I just could not go on. Maybe I will finish it later, maybe I won't. Maybe this is just life postpartum? Part of being a Mom + never having a day off? Some weeks will feel harder than others? I don't know guys, but going to keep on trying to focus inward + sort through it. - We leave for Michigan tomorrow, and I'm actually really excited. Emily gets to meet a lot of her family, so going to just focus on enjoying the trip. With a little yoga thrown in, because again - example / community / no one gives up ❤️ And I know it's good for me, especially on the hard days.
