Positive Energy

Be gentle with yourself.  Repeat this mantra until you believe it with your whole heart.

"Holding onto my bad feelings about this is doing nothing but harming me, and everyone else, and preventing me from enjoying my life fully. I am an awesome person. I choose to let this go." – Jen Sinero “You Are a Badass: How to stop doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life”

No nibbling

When I make dinner, I would to take a bite here and there, especially when I am preparing food for the boys. It all adds up. STOP NIBBLING between meals! Sit down, eat your plate of food and enjoy.

Eat Fresh Foods

This one was the hardest for me because I stopped eating anything that was pre-packaged.  I started eating fresh fruits and vegetables and saw a big difference in my fitness.

Start using ground turkey over ground beef.  Try ground turkey, taco seasons, served on a wheat tortilla, lettuce, tomato and avocado.  My boys loved it.

Don't forget to HYDRATE with water!!!

Drink your drink your body weight, divided by two, in ounces. So if you weigh 180 pounds, that would be 180/2=90. That's 90 ounces of water, every day.

Reduce Your Sugar in Take

Ideally, you’d drink your coffee black and your tea plain.  Try almond milk or coconut water to replace cream. Or try raw sugar, honey, molasses, maple syrup, or agave syrup for sweetener.

Plan your meals

Take the time to plan your meals for the week.  Saturday is my grocery store day and Sunday is my meal prep day. If I know what I am going to eat, I have already shopped for, and it is already in my refrigerator, than I am more likely to eat the food in my fridge than go out and spend more money on more food.

Small Changes

Since March, I have made small changes in my diet and my workouts.  I wanted to share with you a tip a day for the next week, starting Monday, because these small daily changes compounded over time will make a BIG change in your life.

For example, take this AB challenge.  If you had participated in this AB challenge you would have spent approximately three minutes of your day doing about 100 AB exercises.  Pretty simple, just three minutes a day.  In fact, it is also simple to NOT do. If you had followed the guide, you would have completed 2,365 AB exercises in 30 days. 100 sit-ups is not that hard to do but they are also easy to NOT do.

When you commit to making small changes to your daily health and fitness routine, over time, you will you will see the compounded results.

Love What You Do

One of my favorite quotes is:  Choose a job you love, and you will never work a day in your life -Confucius

Earlier this year I was faced with the very real question of what I was going to do for work. While I have a couple of business degrees under my belt, heading back into corporate America was not on the top of my list.  The idea of working from my house and being able to spend time with my two young boys appealed to me. 

That is when I started coaching.  I love to workout and I love that I can share my experience with those who also want to have better fitness and health.  

We all have to start somewhere, you should start now.

My Story

Here I am, a single mother with two young children age 2 and 1. It is crazy for me to be sitting here writing this because I am 42 years old and I never expected to where I am right now. At the beginning of this year, I started this new chapter in my life and made a decision to get back into shape and starting doing something for ME to make ME happy. 

 I realized I am a stress eater.  I was pregnant and nursing for 2 years straight. I gave myself permission to eat whatever and whenever I wanted. No joke- I had lots going on in my personal life and I was eating unhealthy and eating all-the-time. I knew I needed a change.

So... I started measuring my food with these containers. The meal plan helped me figure out the right amount of all the good things I needed to put in my body. It is simple and easy for me to figure out.  I know that I am eating right and not depriving myself. 

Shakeology helped with my sweet tooth cravings. The prebiotics, probiotics, fiber, and digestive enzyme blend can help support regularity and healthy digestion.

Shakelogy and the portion container are the game changer for me because it made me focus on what I put in my body. These days I eat mostly fresh foods and rarely eat food that is packaged. 

When I started this, I did not think anything about loosing weight. It was about getting my groove back, getting Barbie back. My heart, my mind, and my body changed along the way. To date, I have lost 11 pounds and 9 inches. I feel so happy and strong.  

Yo, that's me!
