Fit Minute Friday Workout

I love being reminded that each minute brings us the opportunity to make a healthy choice. In one minute YOU can do anything. Put those healthy minutes together and you are making positive changes that make a difference . With that in mind, I’ve decided to go live on my Facebook page with a “fit move of the day”. On Friday, I put them together and BAM a mini workout. Decided I’d share Friday’s workout with you, in case you are looking for a little something to get moving. Be sure to take a second to like my page so you get notifications when the workouts are available.

Hope you find it help.

Before the New Year…



I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be that person that eats their way through the holiday and wonders where the heck that 15 or 20 pounds came from. I don’t want to be that person that starts the year trying to ditch the fat. I do want to the be that person that is excited to kick off the New Year with goals to remain fit, healthy and happy!

On November 1, I will be taking on a three day cleanse that will help me dial in my nutrition, help me control my portions and kick start my journey to lose weight BEFORE the New Year!  What I love about this cleanse is you eat real food. No starving involved. It’s about healthy food and portion control.

I will be doing this three day refresh with a group of people who are committed to being healthy for the New Year!  You can do it too and I will support you every step of the way.

Here is the link for you to get your 3 day refresh kit. It has everything you need to get your nutrition back on track!

Want a first hand look at what is in the kit?  Check out my video in my Facebook Event:

Let’s get back on track together and enjoy the season!

Accidental Fitness Instructing Coach

A hiking adventure gone wrong turned me into an accidental fitness instructor and now coach! Say what!?! Yup, what was supposed to be a short round trip hike on the AT to find a letterbox turned into a 13 mile hike. I thought I was going to die on that hike. We packed a baggie of trail mix, a peanut butter sammy and we each had a 16 oz bottle of water. It was only suppose to be under 5 miles in and out. Being on the trail with not enough water and weighing 250 pounds was a bad combination. I cried so much and was totally embarrassed. ( we will still sorta newlyweds) I was huffing and puffing. I thought my lungs would burst. My headi was pounding from breathing so hard. Didn’t have my inhaler either. After we made it back to the car, I decided then that something had to change. A 13 mile hike shouldn’t have nearly gave me heart attack or exploding lungs.
I started out with Mary Lou Henner’s eating plan and I tried some fusion fitness workouts by Ellen Barrett. I could only get through 5 min. Lots of crying there too. I showed up every day and managed to be able to go a little longer. Eventually I was getting through the entire 50 minutes. The weight was coming off. I was learning how to ‘eat to live’ not ‘live to eat’.
Fast forward a few years. I finally had the nerve to try a group fitness class. Zumba was always something I wanted to try but couldn’t bring myself to sweat in public. What if I couldn’t keep up? I tried one day and fell in love. I attended classes for a year and finally decided, I could teach this at the church I work at and help other people too. I teach 6 classes a week now and work full time. I love dancing and love my students!!
I met my coach Sarah NOWthrough Zumba. I was struggling to teach my classes.I was exhausted all the time. Back then I was teaching 11 sessions. I couldn’t seem to eat enough to nourish my body. I knew she taught tons of classes and reached out to her and asked her how they heck she was able to teach so many classes. She recommended Shakeology. I saw the price tag and of course, I zipped over to Sprouts and picked up some protein shakes. I’m on a budget and I work for a church. This chick can’t afford all that. Eventually I reached out again and she again suggested Shakeology, again pointing out its value and that is a complete meal. I flat out shared my concern over the cost. I ordered a sample pack and that was all she wrote. I had stamina again! I felt fantastic! And, I didn’t have any more cravings for junk food out of the blue. I was feeling alive again!
Coaching was the last thing on my mind. I’m still too overweight. Who wants to hear from a fat chick? I had an excuse for everything. Dancing was one thing. Coaching others to good health was another.
Sarah was right. Just work the program, drink the shakes and share with others what healthy things work for you. The next thing I knew I was trying the 21 Day Fix and drinking Shakeology. I had my program a week and people started reaching out to me. And now I have a team working with me to help others as we reach our goals together. We stumble. We succeed. But above all, we have each other to lean on.
I’m so thankful for that hiking trip that went bad. I would have missed out on so many blessings. 🙂 I’ve been plowing through the beachbody programs, each one taking me to a new level of health. There was even a program to help me recover after my breast tumor surgery a year ago. (another story for another day)
I’m the accidental fitness instructor-coach that is pushing play, drinking a shakeology and supporting others every day and loving it!

Counting my blessings! It’s been a year.

It’s ‪#‎thankfulThursay‬ and I have so much to be thankful for! One year ago today, I had a breast tumor removed and a bilateral reduction. Scary stuff, but God is faithful!!! I had an incredible doctor and surgeon. It’s been a long healing process and I still have a long way to go (where upper body strength is concerned). I am so thankful for my wonderful hubby and family that helped me through the process. I have THE best friends ever that pitched in. As I sit here eating my lunch and reflecting, I am flooded by emotions. Tons of what if’s which give me even more reasons to be thankful. 

So today I thank my God for His abounding love, His healing hands and His might provisions in my life.

Now for my soap box. Please, please, please get your annual exams and health screenings You must take care of you!!! You are loved!!! If you are reading this, then that means you are huge blessing in my life and I want you to be around a LONG while. My tumor was noticeable to me as the weight continued to come off. I might not have had my annual check up if I didn’t notice it. Just because you think you feel good, doesn’t mean there might not be something going on inside. So now I want you to pick up your phone and schedule that Dr. appointment you have been putting off.counting my blessings

Coach Retreat!

I have never been good about taking my vacation days or sick time. I tend to move full speed ahead and not take enough time to recharge my batteries. Over the past year, I have started learning about the importance of balance in my life. Slowing down and enjoying the moments. Slowing down to SEE the blessings. Slowing down to be IN the moment. What a difference that has made in my life!

Here I am, in Florida, relaxing!?! I’m getting some things done BUT more than anything, I have been relaxing and taking it all in. I never thought I would see the day that I would pack my bags for a 4 day adventure to learn and relax. But here I am… surrounded with some fantastic ladies that are making the difference in the lives of so many other people. I am honored to learn and work alongside them.

Coaching allows me to encourage so many people to reach and meet their personal goals and is teaching me how to find balance in my own life. The balance I am finding is allowing me to slow down and enjoy life. I’m looking for adventure rather than getting the next thing checked off that ‘to do’ list. I am humbled by this opportunity and want to share it with you. If you have a heart to encourage others and need balance in your life, let’s talk. I want to share this joy with YOU!
