Your Mind Controls Everything

Your Mind Controls Everything Your Mind Controls Everything

 

Am I a coach? Yes! Do I love eating healthy & working out? Duh! Am I motivated to most days? For the most part, sometimes I still feel like my old 200 lb self though! Today was NOT one of those days though where i felt motivated, just being real. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, wanted to keep sleeping, was beating myself up for everything imaginable. Seriously, your mind controls everything.

But you know what? I’m SO thankful for Jesus to get me through anything, for my accountability partner, & to be a part of the online groups that I’m leading because they help keep me on track! And guess what else? None of these people I knew before, my accountability partner I didn’t know, yet they’re the most amazing group of people ever! People are losing the amount of weight I’ve lost (60 lbs) in just MONTHS, whereas it took me a little over a year because I didn’t have accountability or support. Your mind controls everything.

I took some extra time feeding my mind with positivity because we determine what thoughts come in to our minds & stay. Like Pastor Steven says, make a decision what you let in & out of your life so you don’t let certain thought patterns control your mind. I’m so thankful for my group & my Jesus today!! Your mind controls everything, feed it something positive.

In today’s video I wanted to address just how your mind controls everything. I actually made this video for my group, but wanted to share it with y’all as well icon smile Your Mind Controls Everything

So let’s watch today’s message on how your mind controls everything.

Happy Monday!!! Today’s post will be very brief, but SUPER EXCITING!! I’ve been working on an ebook with yummy & healthy recipes with my friend Sarah for the past couple of months. GREAT NEWS!!! Our ebook,  Fun Fit Food, is almost ready to publish!!! We should be releasing it by the end of the week!

I’m super excited to share these amazing recipes with ya’ll that I’ve learned this year! I was overweight half my life & used to think that eating healthy was boring & miserable. After losing 60 lbs, I became obsessed with doing too much cardio & eating too little calories, while also calorie counting. After overcoming that, I wanted to share with ya’ll that eating healthy is AMAZE, super yummy, & it’ll change your life. For that reason, calories & macros are NOT included in the ebook because it is all about living a healthy & balanced life.

Just some of the tasty recipes that’ll be included in Fun Fit Food include Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Protein Bars, Chocolate Coconut Crepes, Asian Sesame Salmon, & Healthified Pizza just to name a few. Seriously eating healthy does NOT have to be boring & it can be delicious!

I will keep you updated on the release of Fun Fit Food, but be sure to keep your eyes peeled on my social media pages for more details!

How to Overcome Emotional Eating

how to overcome emotional eating How to Overcome Emotional Eating

Emotional eating is something that so many people struggle with on a daily basis. It is definitely something that I’ve struggled with most of my life. Whenever I’m stressed, I tend to crave carbs & sweets. Whenever I’m upset or sad, I tend to not want to eat. Certain foods also cause us to binge, leading to even more emotions. I’ve started learning so much lately about how to overcome emotional eating, so I want to share it with you.

  1. Figure out your mood. Keep a journal & jot down notes of how you’re feeling whenever you eat something. Keep note of your mood & what you ate.
  2. Ride the wave of your emotions. Emotions and life has ebbs & flows. Try just riding out those emotions instead of going overboard with eating or doing something that you’ll regret.
  3. Don’t empower your vices. Eating unhealthy foods when you have negative emotions can create your body to feel like you need those foods. Grab something healthy like a fruit or veggie instead.
  4. Healthy coping. Try doing other things to deal with your emotions. Go outside for a walk, call a friend, meditate, pray.
  5. Conquer the hard times. Stop telling yourself you’re too busy, you’re too stressed, etc. now to lose weight or get healthy or get your eating in control. Challenge yourself to stay healthy even in stressful times.

I know that overcoming emotional eating can be very difficult. But, by applying these few things that I just gave you it’s totally helped me out. I wanted to teach you how to overcome emotional eating so that you’re no longer looking at this cupcake like I so often did.

Do you get scared to step on the scale every time the holidays come around? You’re not alone! Did you realize that 40% of American females are on a “diet” all of the time, not just through the holidays? Come on y’all, there’s more to life than being on a “diet” all year round. Or perhaps just all year except the holidays. You CAN stop this yo-yo dieting. You CAN keep this weight off for good. You CAN enjoy all your favorite treats. You DO NOT have to diet. Let me tell you how you can avoid holiday weight gain. Maybe you’ll even lose weight this holiday season!

I just started a group called Healthy for the Holidays to help all of y’all avoid holiday weight gain this year. I lost 60 lbs a few years ago & have kept it off since then. I am PASSIONATE about showing you that it doesn’t have to be difficult. It’s simple. It’s easy. It’s an enjoyable life to live. You CAN avoid holiday weight gain this year with my help.
I’m absolutely LOVING the Healthy for the Holidays group so far!! The group is already making new friends & opening up to each other, it’s so much fun seeing this interaction!
My favorite part about what I do is that I absolutely LOVE who I get to work with – they’ve become some of my closest friends! I’ve never had such a large support group & community that helps hold me accountable & keeps me motivated. Plus who doesn’t want to be surrounded with positive like minded people? icon smile Avoid Holiday Weight Gain

How to Renew Your Life

how to renew body mind soul How to Renew Your Life

Renewal is something that we typically think of around New Year’s or maybe even Spring, when Summer is quickly approaching. For so many years, I could care less about taking care of my health, body, mind, or soul. I was far away from God, overweight, depressed, & in a dark place. What I’ve learned is that it all starts with your MIND. Once you overcome your mind, you can overcome anything.The body, mind, & soul all work together. I know that can seem very difficult, believe me. I still struggle with it myself sometimes, even after losing 60 lbs & maintaining that the past 4 years. But, I want to show you that you CAN & just how to renew your  life.

When I began my weight loss journey, I had a lot of trouble getting my mind right about it. I tried so many things & continued failing. Then one day I finally figured out what my WHY was – what  made me want to get healthy – & that pushed me along. It started in the mind. I learned how to better control my mind. This was just the beginning of my journey & I’ve figured out so much since then about how they all connect, so I want to share it with all of you. I want to show you how to renew your life.

I’m sure by now you’ve heard me talking about my Healthy for the Holidays group that starts next Monday. I’m very excited about helping people take control of their mind & their life. I  lived so much of my life in fear & depression. Now that I’ve been released from that, I want to help you all break those chains of bondage that we are not meant to live in. God has a bigger plan for your life, you don’t have to feel this way any more.

This group will last from October-March so that I can help you get through the holidays without gaining any weight, but still enjoying yourself & lots of yummy foods. But, you will not just be learning about health & fitness. I am going to help you gain a new perspective on life, have a fresh start, & show you how to renew your life.

Free Support to Achieve Your Goals

Smart Setting smart goals Free Support to Achieve Your Goals

Achieving your health & fitness goals can sometimes seem so challenging that you just don’t know where to start. It may seem so difficult to have to do this all by yourself. Having someone to go through this journey with you can make all the difference. Who wouldn’t want free support to achieve your goals?

I just want you to know that you’re not alone, I felt that way half of my life. I tried so many different fad diets & none of them worked. Pills, formulas, nasty Slim Fast shakes, you name it, I tried it. Then I started applying a couple easy weight loss tips & found out about challenge groups & I’ve lost 60 lbs & have never been in the shape like I am today.

But, where do I begin? You may be feeling, “ I will never get this weight off.”

In today’s video I wanted to address how you can get free support to achieve your goals.

So let’s watch today’s message on how you can get that free support to achieve your goals NOW.

Healthy for the Holidays Group

Holiday Banner Healthy for the Holidays Group

Hey there! You may or may not know me already, but my name is Jessica Baumgardner.  I’m a health & fitness coach & have an absolute passion for helping others achieve their goals.

I’m just like you though, I’m not some professional fitness athlete. I’m a normal person.  I struggled with my weight for half my life & finally in 2009 I lost 60 lbs myself & kept it off for a few years now with the help of the products & the best-kept secret. As a coach I use my personal experience to help my clients get started, stay motivated, & get results.

It has taken time & I’m still learning, but my passion for health & fitness has brought me in to the amazing Beachbody community. I’m a full-time coach now (God is so good!) & I quit my job back in April, but I still stay super busy so I know just how precious time is. I am here to help make the best of this journey & offer support & accountability to you when you need it.

I would love to hear your story to get to know you better. My goal as a coach is to help you get to your goals.

I also wanted to take time to tell you about my Healthy for the Holidays group. The holidays are right around the corner, which means lots of temptations will be threatening to throw you off course. Did you know the average weight gain for the holiday season is 10 lbs?

I have created a 6 month program that will get you through all of the holidays without falling off track.  We will break down this lifestyle change into simple steps to make it easier to follow. I have taken everything I have learned through my journey to offer you the tools you need.

For only $10 per month you will get “naughty” recipes turned nice, a positive community for support, & one-on-one coaching with me. The group starts October 28th & will run through March 28th.

Please email me for more information & to grab your spot.

I look forward to hearing from you!
