Happy Thursday! I’m so excited today to tell you about an amazing promotion that Beachbody is doing for the month of November that I get to participate as a coach. We are partnering with the organization Feeding America to help feed all of those hungry people out there this holiday season. Did you realize that there are 49 million people forced to make a decision between either food or heat (or some other necessity)? This breaks my heart! I really need you to help feed America with me!

The statistics of the people who are out there hungry and suffering are so alarming. It equates to about every 1 in 6 Americans, which would be literally 26 states worth of people. This just makes me so sad & we have GOT to do something about this issue! There are so many people out there with too much money & too much food. People throw away food every day because it goes bad. People are living in gluttony, while there are millions of people out there starving just in America alone! I personally contribute part of my tithes monthly to feed orphans, so I TRULY believe in this cause! So please join in this cause with me to help feed America.

This makes me so proud to work for a company supporting such a good cause. Our mission already is to “help people lead healthy fulfilling lives” & we are changing lives every day. But, what a better way to pay it forward by helping millions of people. For the month of November, every discounted fit pack that is purchased Beachbody will give $20 to Feeding America. For every $1 we give to them, it helps distribute 9 meals. So for each discounted fit pack you are helping distribute 180 meals. That is AMAZE if you ask me!

Beachbody will be donating a MINIMUM of $250,000 to Feeding America. I LOVE it!! So, please come help me with this amazing cause to help feed millions of hungry people this month. The details are below and you can also contact me to chat more.

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.

Results that Transform Lives

dont start a diet that has an expiration date Results that Transform Lives

Happy Monday y’all! Today I have a story to share with you from my friend Jenna about how she’s transformed her life. Jenna is one of the coaches on my team & I am SO PROUD of the results she’s had so far. In my challenge groups, we are not just getting results that will only last temporarily. You will learn how to make this a lifestyle & not gain all your weight back. We are getting results that transform lives.

I did an interview with Jenna about her  journey that I would love to share with you.

Tell the readers about yourself icon smile Results that Transform Lives
First let me say that I am so excited to be featured on my sister from another mister’s blog! It truly is awesome to be recognized for my achievements! icon smile Results that Transform Lives

I will be turning 29yrs young here soon, I live in Ohio and am married to a Marine Veteran and we have 2yr old son. I absolutely love music and my son really is my life. I am now working as a Barista at Starbucks, and I love it! If I’m not at work or cleaning the house I am hanging out with my family just doing whatever. When fall and the holiday season rolls around we love to all go out and venture around different stores looking at decorations and lights!

How’d you get started on your weight loss journey?
I’ve had such a yo-yo experience with weight loss, honestly. It all started in 2003 when my Mom moved us out to Washington State. I was in my Senior year of high school, having lived in the same town since I was 3yrs old. It was a huge change! I went through a lot and it greatly affected my weight because I turned to food. I went from 150lbs in 2003 to 210lbs by 2005! I looked in the mirror one day in a size 16 pants and and XL shirt and just said, this is ridiculous! I was not used to what I saw because I had never been that big in my entire life and I was a dancer and pretty athletic. So, knowing I needed to make changes I started watching what I ate and how much I ate. Within a year I dropped to 170lbs. I stayed there for awhile, we moved back to Ohio and I lost 5lbs more!

I kept at that weight for a good while, got a job and got in to a relationship and did the ‘comfort eating’ thing, I packed on 20lbs, stayed at 185 until about 2007 and I wasn’t happy with myself so I started portion control again, dropped down to 175. Then in 2009 I met my husband, did the ‘comfort eating’ thing again and got up to 190/191, got pregnant with my son in 2010, dropped back down to 175 in the first 3 months but then by then end of my pregnancy I was back at 210!! I couldn’t believe it, but I was pregnant so I chalked it up to baby weight. I had my son and weighed myself a week after being home and was down to 185. I nursed him for 6 months and got down to 175. If you’re unaware, nursing a child burns 500cals per day, so it’s easy to gain weight when you stop, and when I didn’t nurse anymore I went back up to 189!

In June of 2012 is when I started to get serious, watched what I was eating again, tried to be more active when I could. When we moved in to our own place I started doing Zumba a couple times a week and Jillian Michaels DVDs and  I just really watched my nutrition and took my son for walks whenever I felt like it. I hit my first goal of 175 and was SO ecstatic! So then I continued to set small goals for myself, usually 5lb increments, I read more, studied more, and it all worked! I am currently sitting at 160lbs.

What has been the toughest part for you?
The toughest parts would have to be my insane sweet tooth, and my boredom eating. Believe it or not it’s hard for me to really feel like I always have something going on, even though I’m a Mom and I work; especially since my son likes to do his own thing a majority of the time. But, if there’s nothing else to do I tend to snack because then it feels like I’m doing something. And, I’ve often found that it doesn’t even have to be a physical activity, as long as your mind is busy you should be good icon smile Results that Transform Lives And, I’ve alwaaaaaays loved ice cream and Oreos! Those are 2 things I feel like I could eat non-stop, all the time if I allowed myself to!
How did you overcome that struggle?
I have just tried to be strong-willed enough to eat as best I can and watch how much I eat as well. And, I also try not to keep sweets in the house because it’s a lot harder to eat it if it’s not readily available!
What workouts have been your favorite so far?
I have actually only done a little bit of P90X and am now doing T25. I LOVE P90X Plyometrics and Ab Ripper X, just absolutely love them, not quite sure why, ha! And, T25 is an amazing workout in only 25 min, who wouldn’t want that?!

How has Beachbody helped with your journey?
I decided to become a part of the Beachbody community because I know, first hand, how much easier it is to lose weight and achieve your goals when you have solid support, and that’s what Beachbody does. It gives  you a sense of belonging, a REASON to workout because  it’s kind of like your letting more than just yourself down if you don’t achieve your goals. It just makes you want to do more overall.

How has having me as your coach helped you ?
Well, first, you’re now one of my closest friends, and a friend like you is hard to come by. And, you are open and honest and a great listener which are qualities good leaders should posses! You push us to do better, you’re constantly encouraging us as well. You actually connect with us, and you’re not a ‘boss’ who we never see or talk to. You’ve found your purpose in life, and that makes it so easy for you to help some of us find ours. icon smile Results that Transform Lives

So that last statement just made me cry, she’s too sweet! icon smile Results that Transform Lives I wanted to share with you Jenna’s transformation from the past year. She looks amazing!

I really hope you enjoyed Jenna’s story today. I’m so thankful that she shared it so I could share it with all of y’all! I know there are so many people out there struggling in every way and I’ve been there before, too. Her story just shows that Beachbody is a community that really helps people get real results that transform lives.

Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life

Beachbody Coach Summit  Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life

As most of you may know from how I’ve been raving about the Beachbody Coach Summit 2013, I literally had a life changing experience! The picture above is a photo opportunity I earned with our amazing CEO Carl Daikeler. And if you don’t know have a clue what I’m talking about, I’m a Beachbody Coach & I just got back from our annual conference in Vegas, the Beachbody Coach Summit.

I became a Beachbody Coach in May of last year, but wasn’t really committed until October. Fast forward to today and I’ve now quit my full-time job at the age of 25. I didn’t think it would ever be possible, that I could ever be like one of those successful coaches that I heard talking about quitting their full-time jobs. I now get to make my own schedule & work from home. I am almost completely debt free. It has been a life changing journey so far going in to just one year as a coach. I have helped change hundreds of lives. THAT is what gets me out of bed every morning & puts that fire in my belly.

Now that you know a little about my story as a coach, I can get on about  the Beachbody Coach Summit icon smile Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life I arrived in Vegas last Thursday & flew in with one of my coaches I mentor, Whitney (see our picture below). We actually met through Beachbody, she was a customer assigned to me & we had never met in person before. I have seen so many amazing changes in not just her coaching business, but also her personal life since I’ve become her mentor. She’s lost over 30 lbs, gotten a promotion, & has increased her business tenfold this month. I’m so proud of her! It was our first time meeting &  I just love her to pieces! We checked in to the MGM Grand, where the conference was, & the life changing experiences started happening icon smile Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life

Anyway, after checking in at the hotel we met a bunch of the girls on our team at the pool, around 25 of us went. We spent some time in the sun & then headed to the opening session. Carl Daikeler flew in on cables, he’s so funny! Then we got to hear some amazing success stories from the top elite coaches, new product information, & celebrate together. This was followed by the White Party, which we qualified for since we achieved Success Club consecutively. It was great music, tons of fun, yummy food, & lots of dancing!

Friday then started out with a workout with the trainers from Les Mills Combat at 5:30AM & then another workout with Sagi Kalev from Body Beast directly after that. Once we finished working out we headed to the personal development workshops with the top elite coaches & learned about how to grow our business this year. After that around 5:30PM we did another workout, this time we tried out T25 with Shaun T & it was absolutely AMAZING! I thought I was in good shape & didn’t feel like that after trying it! So, I decided to make it my next program! icon smile Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life Then a big group of us went on a party bus & toured Vegas!

Saturday started early again around the same time, but this time we did the super workout on the Vegas strip with all the celebrity trainers. We got to workout with the Combat trainers, the Brazil Butt Lift trainer, Chalene Johnson, Shaun T, & Tony Horton. We even got a photo with Chalene (below – my head is to the far left & is half cut off, but it’s okay) after the workout! Our day was chock full of more amazing personal development that will change my life & my business.

Then the night ended with the Beachbody Challenge winners, which was a total tear jerker hearing these transformation stories! Andy lost 221 lbs. & won $100,000 for his transformation using Beachbody workouts & Shakeology, check out his story - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klVD8HZ61iE&feature=youtu.be. The top 10 coaches of 2012 were then recognized & we ended with a bang at the closing party. This was a lot more fun, dancing, great music, & a wonderful time with a community of positive like-minded people.

This experience was so life changing to me just because of the experiences during this trip. I was able to be around 7,000 other positive people who have the same mission in life as I do: to help others lead a healthy & fulfilling life. I absolutely loved having fun at the live workouts & at the parties! I love the fact that we are all on a mission to help people & the competitive part of me loves the fact that when I’m in the Top 10 next year & Top Coach 2015 that I will be on stage & be recognized in front of thousands of people.

I just KNOW that I will achieve those goals because all of the other top elite coaches started just like me – their first paycheck was only $38 when they first started! Believe it or not, that’s the exact amount of my first paycheck one year ago. I wrote all of this out to just share with you in hopes that I can help change your life. If you read about how my life used to look just a few months ago, you’ll see that anything is possible. Coaching has literally changed my entire life & I now have a life of freedom & happiness & love helping others achieve the same!

If you’re ready to change your life & have thought about coaching, but you’re just not sure if it’s for you I so understand. It took me a couple months before I decided. It’s a big decision & a lot to think about. But, I will tell you my only regret is that I didn’t start sooner. This is the only job out there where you can work part-time but earn way more than a full-time income. I’m well on the way of earning a six figure income & know that since I’m committed & consistent with helping others that it’ll happen. How many other jobs allow you to do this & love what you’re doing? If you’re ready to join, I encourage you to read about how to join my team. I can’t wait to help change your life! icon smile Beachbody Coach Summit 2013 Changed My Life
