Faith and Fitness

12771687_10153477968326801_7744392453548254109_oSometimes we get so wrapped up in our “To Do” list that we lose track of what’s important. Today has been ONE of those days I will be glad when it’s OVER. I needed to take a step back, breathe and refocus… And the best place for that is remembering what I’m so thankful for… This picture is a pretty good reminder. 

-Family
-God’s grace
-Healthy body 
-Happy home
-Passion for helping others

I’m going to get in a quick workout and get my mind right!!

I’ve decided to do something DIFFERENT in my Challenge Group this month, because I need to REFOCUS on the things that are most important to me. I believe that being HEALTHY takes much more than a good workout and clean eating. So, I’m hosting my first group centered around FAITH and fitness. Not only will we workout, we are going to go through the book, “Made to Crave,” which focuses on shifting our cravings from food and unhealthy habits to our relationship with God! I can’t think of anything more rewarding than learning to love ourselves, have a closer relationship with Christ, and getting healthy!!

I’m so excited about this, and YOU ARE INVITED!! So, here are the details-

✔30 days in a private group
✔Fitness program of your choice
✔Complete nutrition guide
✔Color coded containers for portion control
✔Shakeology
✔Group support
✔”Made to Crave” book study

I want to keep this group small so it remains intimate! I’m looking for FIVE ladies ready to change their life and give 100% in this group. If you are interested in joining us, CLICK HERE to fill out the application! The group will start next Monday, 2/29!

 

Life is Good

Gahhhhhh. My ‪#‎mcm‬ EVERY DAY. I seriously never imagined life could be THIS good. I grew up with the BEST Christian role models, who showed us exactly what a marriage was supposed to be like… But I had a lot of BAD relationships, and a failed marriage- with young children- before Luke. No one wants to talk about these things… Total FAILURES… But it’s LIFE, and it makes me so grateful for today. Before Luke and I started dating, I was ready to just be alone… And be a mother to my girls. And… I’m certain he was not ready to get married or have an INSTANT family. Thankfully, God had a better plan than either of us did. Luke is our rock, and the most incredible hubby/father. Our marriage gets stronger and stronger every day, and he makes me a better person. I’ve been feeling a lot of guilt lately as a mother. I work a full time job, and I run a full time coaching business (part-time)- that officially makes more money than my REAL job! To say I am stretched thin, is an understatement. Luke takes on parenting duties, plays with the kids, and does bath time, so I can work on my business AFTER work. He is the greatest support system, but he is also the reasoning behind most decisions we make. Last night, Luke told me he had been thinking about some things we needed to do differently as parents, and I agree with him 100%. Things that had been on my mind and in my heart, he verbalized and put into action. This man is an answered prayer and better than anything I ever imagine. I am thankful for his leadership and the example that he sets for our children every single day. Goodness… I am GRATEFUL. 

Faith Bigger Than FEAR

FAITH bigger than fear3I heard something Sunday morning in church that I have thought about multiple times, every day since. If you are allowing FEAR to consume your life, you are NOT trusting God, but you are worshipping those fears. Have you ever felt a calling SO strong, but your FEAR kept you from going after it?! Of course you have. We all have. Fear is healthy, but letting it control your life, or hold you back from your dreams, is NOT. Three years ago, I believed deep down that coaching could change my family’s life, but I let the fear of failure, judgement, and the unknown hold me back. We are SOOOO programmed to do what society deems NORMAL, that we miss out on SO many opportunities to go where we are CALLED. WHY would anyone want to be NORMAL when life can be INCREDIBLE? God gives us the most amazing callings, yet we walk away because we don’t feel capable. Guess what?! God doesn’t call the QUALIFIED, he qualifies the CALLED. So, those FEARS… Let them go! That stirring in your heart, that you were made for MORE… Go after it!!! Let your FAITH be bigger than your fear. 

Non-Scale Victories

NSV post

I LOVE celebrating WINS with my coaches and my challengers. These non-scale victories are extra fun, because, SERIOUSLY, who doesn’t love shopping for new jeans?! This Challenger is an avid runner, and, truthfully, she is an athlete. Most people would look at her and think she’s in great shape already… Why is she in a Challenge Group?! The most incredible thing about these groups is the women that are there daily to support you, to hold you accountable & PUSH you when you don’t think you can do it. Your goal may be to tone up, lose ten pounds, or lose 100! These groups are for YOU!!! Did you know the average person GAINS EIGHT pounds over the holidays?! Not you. Not this year!! Are you looking for a plan to keep you on track and going into the new year strong?! I have a support group starting MONDAY, and I would love you to join me. 

✔Complete Meal plan/Nutrition Guide
✔30 minute workouts
✔Color Coded Containers for Portion Control
✔Nutrient Dense SUPERFOOD Shake
✔INCREDIBLE Support

Part-Time Coach. Full-Time EXTRA Income.

Sept Income Invite

My parents always told me it wasn’t polite to talk about money. So, if you are easily offended by that discussion… STOP reading! (Sorry, Mom!) When I signed up to be a coach, honestly, I just wanted the discount. Who doesn’t want to save money on a product you are buying anyway, right? What I quickly found was, that for me, Beachbody was LESS about workout programs and transformations and more about community and relationships. I was desperate for that.

Through my first Challenge Group, I found acceptance, support, and the encouragement I needed to be a BETTER version of myself. I wanted to share THAT feeling, that community, and the possibilities that came with being a part of it. I wanted to pay it forward and be a coach!

It’s been an incredible journey, experiencing the reward of helping others, and the freedom that comes with extra income. For the first couple of years, the money went towards things that were non-necessities; spa visits, vacations, shopping trips we didn’t necessarily need, the girls’ private school tuition, etc. Then, came the REAL freedom. Because of Beachbody, I was able to stay home with Marcus for the first year of his life. I never had to drop my infant at daycare. I never had to wake him up because I had to be at school to teach someone else’s child at 8:00a, and I didn’t have to leave the house at the crack of dawn to make a sales call 200 miles away. I got to be there for EVERY second of his life, and every one of his FIRSTS. This opportunity truly gave me freedom in the MOST incredible sense. Freedom to be a mom and a wife first, before any other obligation. When I looked at my September income, the growth from last year was exciting, but what was even CRAZIER… Last month’s income was the SAME income I made monthly, working FULL-TIME as a teacher, my first year in the classroom. Whoa.

I’m just an average mom and wife. I don’t have a degree in fitness. I am not a nutritionist or trainer; I simply LOVE helping other women lose weight, learn healthy habits, find confidence, and feel better in their own skin. I get to do that every, single day, part-time, and I am rewarded for it.

I could not be MORE excited to pay this forward and to help you build a business that gives you freedom, whatever that means to you! Do you want to be more present in your child’s life? Do you want to have the extra income to give your family real life EXPERIENCES? Do you want to travel the world and not worry about how you are going to pay for it? Do you simply want to have the accountability to really commit to your own physical transformation? Freedom is different for each one of us, but this new freedom that my family has… there is NOT a price tag you can put on it!

I am ready to mentor FIVE new coaches this month. If you are READY for a change, ready to RISE to empower others, and ready for the freedom this opportunity can give you, I want to talk to YOU! Please CLICK HERE to fill out the application to join the RISE DYNASTY.
