HOW I LOST THE LAST 20LBS!

Like most women, I’ve been on a life long journey to manage my weight.  Yes I am a Fitness Instructor and Yes I love to workout…simply for the Energy it gives me and the endorphin high that I’m addicted to!!  So why was I always struggling to lose the Last 10lbs? Even to hold the weight I was at was a struggle…it seemed like I could gain 5 lbs in a weekend if I didn’t workout or watch everything that I put into my mouth.  I like eating healthy and love to workout so what was the problem?  What was I missing?  This was a question I asked myself for a long time ….and I honestly thought that my body was suppose to be this way, it wanted to be at this weight and I had to accept that or did I?  Ultimately I wasn’t happy and was determined to find a solution…

20lbs later….


I have found the solution!!  Not only to the weight loss which I have kept off now for over a year, but for the first time in my life I am in CONTROL of my weight!!!  I have more Energy than Ever and I’m NOT hungry!! That’s powerful!!!  Here is how I did it….

In January of 2010 I was at my heaviest weight of 151lbs!  I made a commitment to start P90X and drink Shakeology everyday!!  P90X is exactly what my body needed!  My body is conditioned for cardio due to years of teaching group fitness but P90X was completely different…it is a 90 day at home fitness program involving Muscle Confusion.  Basically a different workout each day so your body can’t get comfortable because you’re constantly changing it up!! Then every 30 days the program changes and steps it up a notch!  The first 30 days kicked my booty!!  I started to see muscle definition, my strength improved and the inches started to melt away!!

The Game Changer for me was Shakeology!! And that’s where I really started to lose the weight from.  How does it work? Basically its a Health Drink with over 70 natural ingredients including Super Fruits from around the world!!  It is superior nutrition that my body had never experienced before!  Within the first 2-3 weeks I watched my Sugar Cravings start to disappear, my Energy Increase and my Body began to Crave WATER!!!  Having struggled with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) most of my life, the digestive cultures and priobitics in Shakeology helped my digestive system as well!!  Personally, everytime I go on a nutrition program and restrict my calories to lose weight I get migraines, my energy gets zapped, I get moody, hungry and just in general I don’t feel like myself.  Maybe you can relate?  But this time was different..because my body was getting all the nutrients its NEVER had before all in one meal… I felt AMAZING!!  I actually 100% gave up: Coffee, Diet Pop, Artificial Sweetners, Dairy & Red Meat!!!  I never would have been able to do that without Shakeology!  I drink it everyday once or twice a day and I LOVE IT!!!

In 90 Days I lost 11lbs w/ P90X & Shakeology!! I then started Turbo Fire along with Eating Clean and lost the remaining 9lbs!! I am at a NEW WEIGHT…a weight I wasn’t even at in high school!!!  These programs WORK!

I drink Shakeology everyday and will for the rest of my life…it has changed my life ~ I feel 10 years younger

I’m not going to say it was Easy…but it was Easier 🙂  The workout program is laid out for you to just follow, it comes with an eating guide and a motivational Coach like me 🙂  I’m thankful for these convenient and results orientated workouts to have at my finger tips!!  I now have the tools to not only help myself but my friends & network get in the BEST SHAPE OF OUR LIFE!!  It starts with a question….are you ready to do the work and change your life?

I earned $5000 this week from Beachbody?!!….but that’s NOT the Best Part!!

OK Yes I almost fell over when I seen my paycheck this week, over $5000 for 1 week in Beachbody….but more importantly, I need you to know that is NOT the best part!!!  You know me…did you forget that I’m the Everyday Girl who grew up in a small town, had a single mom, believes in “Happily Ever After” & Fairytales, teaches Fitness Classes (BTW Instructors TEACH bcz they LOVE it, not because they are getting paid) met my husband on the school bus and was on UNEMPLOYMENT in Jan 2010!!!  I’m as down to earth as they get!!  I’m overly Optimistic and “Live in a Bubble” of Positive People…I don’t watch the news much, I steer away from drama or anything/anyone negative and Simply Love to Help People!!!  I share this with you because I KNOW that people REALLY DON’T KNOW what I “do”….or how I’ve MADE this happen…

I lost my job of 13 years in Nov 2009 and went on Unemployment, which was Heart Wrenching Disappointing for a work-aholic like myself!!  I earned more in January of 2012 from my Beachbody Coaching Business than we earned in 6 months in my final year working downtown Chicago!!!  I’ve LOST 17lbs and YES feel Amazing!!!  But wait….HOW is this all possible??  I want you to know WHO I WAS before I started – in fact the picture on the left is from 2006 and yes I’m blonde!!!  You may see me now and think that this was EASY or that I’m “Special” but I’m NOT!!!!  In 2006 I didn’t have an email account, I didn’t own a computer, I didn’t know what social media was, I was over bloated/over weight, I would NEVER EVER speak in public and although I was Happily Married….I wasn’t FULL-FILLED INSIDE!!!!!!  I created the life I have right now….I want people to know that!! I LEARNED EVERYTHING I had to – to be Successful and turn our life around!!  We were SWALLOWED in CREDIT CARD DEBT…so people can say “Money isn’t Important” but its also the #1 REASON FOR DIVORCE!!  It’s not about finances—-Its about FREEDOM!!!!!  Freedom to Live a Life we could only DREAM OF – on OUR own TERMS, our own TIME…..

and the BEST PART IS…..I’ve built this Business helping others including some of my BEST FRIENDS Change their Lives!!!  So the $$$$ REALLY REPRESENTS – Weight Loss, More Energy, Getting out of Debt, Retiring at 34 years of age, Moms staying home w/ their family, More Time and FREEDOM to do WHAT YOU WANT!! YOU Get to Decide…You are in Control!!! Or at least you can be….with eveyone losing their jobs right and left, the economy in the place that it is, people losing their homes, the over growing OBESITY EPIDEMIC, people TIRED of being sick and TIRED….I say, you don’t have to!!!!!  I said, ENOUGH is ENOUGH!!!  When I was a little girl….I honestly thought some MAGIC business/job/opportunity was going to just come to me so I would know what to do w/ my life….because I’ve always wanted to do something GREAT….but guess what, I learned that it doesn’t come to you….YOU have to FIND IT!!!  Then you have to go after it like you have ONE LIFE TO LIVE!!!  Don’t look at today….FOCUS on tomorrow, a year from now, 2 years from now….thats what I did!

My HEART is FULL because of all the lives I’m touching inside and out!!  I’m running a business that I started making $50/week here and there….Now a Huge Organization that is going to Blow My Mind in the next 2 years….but I’m LEADING with my HEART!!  Its a RELATIONSHIP Business – if you INVEST in your people & team, truly LISTEN and help them make their DREAMS COME TRUE…you will be continuely Blessed!!!!

Don’t wait another day, if you want more then I can help you Achieve It!!!  You CAN BE in Control of your Life – but you have to TAKE IT BABY!!!!!  MESSAGE ME on how I can help you!!

I can’t believe this was 2 years ago –

My Top 3 Takeaways from Chalene Johnson’s 30 Day PUSH!

If you have been thinking about diving into the 30 day PUSH book / online challenge with Fitness, Business & Life Expert, Chalene Johnson…I’m going to share with you how AMAZING & HIGHLY EFFECTIVE this program has been for me!!

I’ve worked for Chalene Johnson’s Company, Powder Blue Productions, for 6 years now.  At a time in my life where I was HUNGRY to do more in Fitness and Inspire others, she over fulilled all of my hopes & expectations!  I knew from the moment I met Chalene, that this woman has got IT ALL TOGETHER!!!!  She’s truly HAPPY, Comfortable Public Speaking, Confident in her own skin, Happily Married, A Successful Business Owner and created an Empire DOING WHAT SHE LOVES for a living!!!!  Motivating, Smart, Savvy, Balanced, Trendy…SERIOUSLY?? How does she do it all?  I think those are the words that float through my mind EVERY TIME I hear her speak – every live training, youtube video, 30 day free challenge, Camp Do More, Turbo Kick Classes and more…..NOW I KNOW!!!!  AND all of her “Secrets”, Tips and HABITS are revealed in PUSH!!!

“30 Days to Turbocharged Habits, a Bangin Body & the Life you Deserve!!” And it DELIVERS!!  First I want to say that I have been following her trainings for years and even though I had picked up bits and pieces here and there, I knew once I put it all TOGETHER it would be POWERFUL!!  Everyone will TAKE AWAY different things because we are all LOOKING for different things….here were my BIG A HA MOMENTS…

 

1. DISCIPLINE – Sticking with the 30 day program forced me into NEW HABITS…Discipline!!  We all have the POWER to Achieve Every GOAL we set for ourselves…but most of us lack the DISCIPLINE to do the Daily Baby Steps to get there.  Learning to look at a BIGGER GOAL and FORCING myself to learn a new habit, therefore DISCIPLINING myself was the missing link.  Successful People are Disciplined to Do What Most Others won’t….

2. ORGANIZATION: Ahhh I run the other way when I hear this word!!  Details?? Me?? Oh No!!   I see the Big Picture but the details make me want to jump on to the next task on my list.  I’ve always made a To Do List but it was on several pieces of paper…post it notes, notebooks and notebooks and notebooks, cell phone apps YOU NAME IT!!!  Why couldn’t I find ONE that worked?  After learning her simple system of breaking down the tasks on your To Do List to TODAY, THIS WEEK & SOMEDAY – I found an app that I fell in LOVE with GET IT DONE APP 

It follows the same folders, syncs to my phone and I am able to do my To Do List on my computer…which is WHAT Works For ME!!!  It’s not just creating a To Do List, most people do that….its Creating a To Do List with the TASKS that are going to move you towards your Push Goal!!

3. PUSH GOAL / THINKING BIG – One of her signature ideas in the book is teaching you how to set Goals but specifically a PUSH Goal.  Basically a Yearly BIG Goal then when accomplished will allow all of your other goals to fall into place as ACCOMPLISHED!!  She has you write out 10 Goals for the year and IDENTIFY which one will be your Push Goal.  NOW….I have done the 10 Goals before, specifically in 2006 when I first became a Presenter for PBP.  It worked for me then when I had no idea what I was doing, haha!! This time around I added the PUSH GOAL – which was still EASY….but now came the HARD PART…..Reverse Engineering your Push Goal!!!!  Again, I ve heard her talk about this before, show it on videos and I always RAN to the next task….thinking oh no way!! NO WAY can I do that…really I was telling myself that I wasn’t willing to DISCIPLINE myself to do that!!  What is Reverse Engineering – in simple terms….breaking down your Push Goal to EVERY SINGLE TINY STEP you must take to achieve it!! And your goal is to come up with a huge, LONG list of mini tasks…the more the better!! Ahhhhh  Well Guess What….I did it!! I MADE MYSELF DO IT!!  I went into the dining room, posted the GIANT Poster Size Post It notes on the wall and started writing for probably a good 30 minutes NON STOP!!!  Once I was done I thought I was going to feel overwhelmed and think…HOW in the world am I ever going to do all of this????  But just the opposite happened…..I felt RELIEF!!  I felt a huge weight lifted off of my shoulders because I just spilled every idea, thought, to do list task on paper…every single one of them.  I HAD A PLAN…ON PAPER!!!  A Plan to Achieve the Biggest Goal of my Personal Career, one that will Change my Family’s Life!!!

Chalene teaches you the HABITS to Success whether Fitness, Nutrition, Relationships or Business!!  It is a Life Changing Book!  She is REAL, down to earth and you will feel like you are talking to your Best Friend when she takes you through the journey.  Can you Discipline yourself to PUSH for 30 days?? I’m glad I did!! It wasn’t easy, but it was 100% worth it!! Now I’m PUSHING you to do the same!!

Chalene Johnson PUSH

I’m just an everyday girl with a heart hungry to do something Great with my Life…I can’t ever Thank Chalene enough…but what I can do is PAY IT FORWARD!!  Learn it – Live it – Teach it!!!

Good Luck!! And I can’t wait to hear your Success with PUSH!

Struggle to Success ~ Starting my Business

Your Life Becomes what you Think About Most of the Time ~ The Secret

If you have followed my story, you may know me as a Fitness Instructor, a Turbo Kick Presenter, a Motivator, a Wife…and I am…I am all those things but what I didn’t even know about myself until most recently is that I have become a Life Changer!!

3 years ago I wouldn’t have ever thought that my life would take the turn that it did…but it has…and a lot of it is due to having my MIND in the right place!!  I did receive an Amazing Opportunity that could change my life, but if my MIND wasn’t in the right place to RECEIVE & ACCEPT IT I’m not sure the end result would still be the same.  I have read “The Secret” along with many other Personal Development books designed to help me become the BEST PERSON that I can be.  I recently read a quote by Jim Rohn “Work harder on yourself than you do on your Job…Work your Job and Earn a Living, Work on Yourself and Earn a Fortune!! —-  The Secret ~ Your Life becomes what you Think about Most of the Time… What are you thinking about most of the time? Who are you spending most of your time with? Because the Top 5 People you spend the MOST TIME with is the end result of who you become….wow!!!

I invite you read and watch my story…after Struggle comes Opportunity…the question is are you READY to Embrace It?  It might be your one chance to Change Your Life…I have done “it” and the only way I can possibly say Thank You is to LEAD OTHERS on the same path…I want to help as many people as I can to do the same – find Happiness, Success, Passion & Financial Hope…your Someday just might be Today…its 100% up to you!!

3 Years ago I signed up to start my own Fitness Business as a Rep for the Company that produces P90X, Insanity, Hip Hop Abs, Turbo Fire & More!  Basically I’m a Resource helping people find a SOLUTION to Weight Loss, Fitness, Health & Finances…I decided to sign up because of a couple of reasons—

#1 I love TURBO!!! & Believe in the product 110%

#2 I LOVE Helping People get Healthy & Fit – and with “Beachbody” its easy because the products are INCREDIBLE and they are already in place!! I’m NOT the fitness professional, I’m simply the customer saying hey you should try this, its worked for me & I know it can for you too!!

#3 It’s Online Marketing!! YES I am working my fitness business via social media sites like Facebook, Blogging and more…why? This is where most people are hanging out so why not? Its also makes it 10x easier for me to meet new people and build relationships quickly….and if you think this is “sales”, its not!! It’s building & mentoring a team of people who share the same goals!

#4 I had faith in my Leadership–My Coach is a 25 Star Diamond Level Coach & she LEADS US to Success!! How? A Business Plan is in place all I had to do is LEARN IT and PLUG IN…Webinars, Team Calls & Videos at my fingertips!

#5 Financial Freedom~ Yes this is REAL!! By helping people DO THE SAME THING I AM DOING…the Beachbody Business Plan sets you up for success based on your Goals & Time Comittment…I am working on a 6 figure salary in 3 years…this is a business that is Part-Time that you will do on the side from your full time J.O.B but can and will set you up for the rest of your life….!!!!!

It’s Real, I know it because it’s happening to me!!  I LOVE IT, I’m ADDICTED to it!!  I LOVE TURBO — But what I Love even more is helping others FIND this business and SHOW them HOW they can Change Their Life the same way…..put fear aside…if you don’t do something DIFFERENT, your life will continue on the same path that it is on….take a minute and think about it…WHAT IF you made a decision TODAY to start something for your FUTURE NOW, where will your life be in 2012? 2013?

What would happen if you FOCUSED in a New Direction…

Contact Me (in the upper right hand) and let’s chat…it’s never too late to start!!!  I would be honored to have you on my team!!!!!

Cruisin the Caribbean

If you asked me a year ago if I ever thought I would be on a Caribbean Cruise in 2011, I would have said NO WAY…but WOW has life changed!

I want YOU to know that ANYTHING is possible when you set your Mind to it!!  Hardwork, Determination and FOCUS were definitely my Power Words for 2010….I was laid off from my full time job of over 13 yrs at the end of 2009 and instead of falling into a deep depression, I DECIDED this was my Opportunity to work my Business w/ full FOCUS!!  You would be surprised how far Goal Setting and Self Help Books will go….A Long Way!!  I had a Plan B and I’m so thankful I did…because this is where it led me

I earned a trip for 2 on a 7 Day Caribbean Cruise on the Oasis of the Seas!!  Oh yea baby! My hubby couldn’t go because of MMA Training season so I took one of my best friends, Shukria Stewart (APD from Utah).  Over 300 Beachbody Coaches were on the boat including 2 of my Coaches: Lisa Koehler and Kristia Hord!  I was MORE EXCITED for them to have Earned this trip than I honestly was for myself!!  On top of that we met up w/ my Success Partners: Blasi Jacobi, Kristi Fukumoto and my Upline ROCKSTAR Coach – Christine Dwyer & Platinum Presenters Team!!! Not to mention Corporate and staff made the trip as well…..

If you’re thinking, ohhhh it was a Business trip….think AGAIN!! In this Business we don’t know the difference between Work and Play!! And that’s the BEST way to describe my life!! I’m working w/ Positive, Driven People who Love Life and together we are having a BLAST!!!

What did we do? The 3 ports were: Bahamas, St. Thomas & St. Maarten!  It was NON STOP Fun: Turbo Kick w/ Chalene Johnsons, Jet Skiing, Dancing everynight!, Private Cocktail Parties, Dressing up for Dinner was fun everyday, Massages, Facials, Shopping it never ended….

What I’ll never forget is the relationships we built together all while setting up our futures…Thank You Beachbody!!

Day 30 of P90X Hybrid – It’s been rough

Ok this has been a rough past few weeks!  I started off strong but hit a hault when my IBS started to take control of my life…physically, mentally & emotionally I hit the WALL!!  BUT what’s important is that I got right back on track…and I think that’s what we all have to remember, Fitness is a Journey Not a Destination.  It’s a Challenge, a Struggle…but the journey is worth the ride!! Take a listen to my video blog:

Check out my Shoulders & Arms Workout – I can see the bloat diminishing, my body starting to get lean and change shape!! I can see a big difference from Day 1…one day at a time, that’s all I can focus on

Sample of my Daily Eating: Week 3

This is my 3rd week of the P90X/Insanity Hybrid Workout and WOW is it kicking my booty!!!  The first week I was sooo bloated from the diet changes….The second week I was sooo sore from the workouts….The third week I’m starting to feel my metabolism change because I feel hungry, which can be a bit difficult but I know its because my body is starting to burn it up!!  I haven’t lost any weight yet, but I see lots of definition in my upper body, my hips are slimming down and I’m starting to get into the routine of this…

Here is a sample of my Daily Eating Plan:

I’m following a Portion Style Eating Program which is 6 small meals a day, every 3-4 hours.  **You can either count calories or portions, I’ve done both and find this to be much easier FOR ME….similar to the Body for Life Eating Program.  Each “meal” consists of 1 serving of protein, carb, veggies and 2 cups of water!!  I am COOKING!!!  I never cook, I hate it!!  But I know I have to in order to fuel my body properly and to feel truly “satisfied”.  I plan my week in advance every Sunday by picking out my meals/recipies, going to the grocery store and writing everything down for the week to take out the guesswork.  Might sound like a lot of work, but honestly it does save time and money in the long run…

9:00am Workout – 2 cups water

11:00 Egg White Omelet w/ Tomatoes & 2/3 cup. hashbrowns – 2 cups water & Activit Vitamins

1:00pm Tropical Tuna Sandwich (Tuna, crushed pineapple, light miracle whip) 2 slices bread grilled – 2 cups water

4:00pm Chocolate Shakeology w/ Fiber Boost – 2 cups water

7:00pm Salmon – Sweet Potato (small) – Broccoli – 2 cups water!!

9:00pm 1/2 protein bar (or cottage cheese/fruit) – 2 cups water

11:00pm Banana Protein Pudding (1 scoop vanilla protein, 8 oz soy milk, 2 TBL Banana Pudding Mix, 1/2 sliced banana as topping) – 2 cups WATER!!

***So these aren’t the exact times of the day but at least every 3-4 hours I eat!! Lots of WATER and nothing else!  Lots of PROTEIN and 2 Shakes a day!!!
