Tip Tuesday – Grounding

Anyone else a huge fan of grounding?

No, I don’t mean PUNISHING… grounding is GOOD!

I didn’t know the term for it until a couple of years ago, but I would always find myself doing just this… I love the feel of the Earth under my feet, but did you know it has tons of helpful benefits?

Thankful Thursday – It Takes A Village

In less than a week, I get to see some of my tribe at Coach Summit in NOLA. I see the local ones at trainings and such, but we are scattered throughout the country, so I am excited to see the ones not so local.

These people have propped me up when I am down. They have helped me with notes, with calls, with confidence, with mindset, with everything under the sun.

I am THANKFUL for them, and GRATEFUL for them. I am blessed to be part of this team; blessed to link arms with these men and women, and march on in our quest to better ourselves, our lives, the lives of others and the world. I didn’t know when I decided to become a Coach that my cup was going to feel so very full, but I am so grateful for it.

No one stands alone, for it truly takes a village!

Make It Happen Monday – Accountability is the game changer

How times change…
I used to go to the gym, wander aimlessly, hit up a few machines (with absolutely zero regard for safety or proper form, CRINGE!), and then meander my way out for half priced apps with coworkers, effectively UNDOING all of my hard work, because I had nothing and no one to hold me ACCOUNTABLE; my dirty secret was known only by those joining me for those apps, and they were doing the same thing, so why would they hold me accountable?! We enabled each other!
Enter Beachbody. Enter Challenge groups, Accountability Groups, my teammates, the people down in the trenches with me in the DAILY BATTLE to get healthy and stay as healthy as I can…
And do you know what? That accountability has truly, TRULY made all the difference. Do I still indulge? Fuck yeah, I like health but life is also short, you gotta have balance, you know?! Do I sometimes not feel like working out? Yep, believe it or not, those days ABSOLUTELY happen — and thats when I click on the group, see everyone else posting their accountability, and remember how good it feels to WORK on yourself, and 99% of the time, I power through the workout and feel better for it afterwards.
Am I perfect? HARDLY. Am I progressing? ABSOLUTELY. The power of a like-minded community is incredible; without these groups I would never have gotten into the habit of working out consistently (AND focusing on form!) 5-6 times a week. I wouldn’t make treats the exception, not the rule. I WOULD let my excuses, my cozy bed, and my lack of energy stop me from working on being the best ME I can BE.
∗ OPEN INVITE ∗ With all sincerity here – if YOU need support, if YOU need accountability and a safe place to share the highs and lows, seek motivation and inspiration, and share in a powerful community who truly believe in you, and want to see you succeed – let’s chat, because we would love to have you! There is strength in numbers, and the bond of an accountability group is POWERFUL!

Transformation Tuesday – Being a Beachbody Coach

“The privelege of a lifetime is being who you are” …

A couple of my fellow coaches and I hosted a webinar where we shared our stories, and how being a Beachbody Coach has changed our lives (the very reason this blog exists is because being a Beachbody Coach gave me the confidence to do it!)

I am the second speaker, and while my speech isn’t perfect or anything, it took a lot for me to do something live like this… I have always been a little shy on that front due to a sudden, profound hearing loss in both ears around age 10.

So when my success partner and I decided to do this, I was a little nervous! But truthfully, any nerves were worth working past, because being a Beachbody Coach has really changed me… not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, and spiritually as well! And it feels like it would be a waste to not share what it has done for me, and help others see what it could do for THEM.

Take a look, if you would like. See how I have come out of my shell, embraced all that life has to offer, and changed the financial reality of that and my husband – and we’re just getting started!

There is, TRULY, more to life than just going to work and paying your bills. It’s called LIFE because its meant to be LIVED!
