Are you the boss of you.

Don’t you just love that feeling you get when you know you’ve helped someone? I think that is my favorite part of being an online coach. I help people find the tools they need to be successful, I encourage them to believe in themselves and to keep trying. I am making great friends along the way and helping other people build their own businesses, too.

Being my own boss gives me the flexibility I need to work at the Pregnancy Resource Center, volunteer at my church and spend time with family and friends.  Now that is cool. All the things I love and I still get to run my own biz. #winning

I’m getting together with some other coaches this week to share what we do and how you can start your own business. Are you ready to be your own boss? Tune in to our sneak peek to see if coaching is right for you. (join me here) If you are ready to be your own boss, I’m ready to teach you how. Comment below and let me know  if you’ll be joining us.BOSS-

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.

Max Out.

Max Out Strength liked to kill me today. Lots of tears as I pushed thru. Why am I pushing myself? Because I have to get healthy. Sure I’ve lost 100 pounds and feel so much better. {Insert happy dance} The reality is, I’m still obese. I have about 35 pounds to go. The only way to lose it is to dial in my nutrition and challenge myself with a good sweaty workout. So tears, sore muscles and all I’m pushing through because I’m stronger than my excuses. I have goals and I’m gonna crush them. I’m gonna help everyone I can along the way!!maxout

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!

A long unexpected year…

Back in January, I asked my FB peeps to keep me accountable to my health and fitness goals. It has been a LONG year with some unexpected bumps along the way. I started the year strong with Shakeology and the 21 Day Fix. I took off 11 pounds and was feeling fabulous. I hit the middle of the year and my doctors decided a breast tumor and fibroid cluster they were watching needed to come out. Ready or not, the Dr. said it was necessary; a bilateral reduction was on the calendar.. Very scary!

It was a long hard healing process for me because teaching fitness classes is a huge part of my personal journey. I had amazing friends that took care of my students for me while I healed. It was the longest 8 weeks ever! 8 weeks of no exercise…. ugh! Thankful for my Shakeology. It helped me keep my nutrition in line.

So here I am just a little over 4 months outside my surgery and earlier this week my surgeon released me from the last bit of restrictions. I’m free to work as hard as my body will allow. It feels good to be getting back on track with my fitness.

Bring on the last few weeks of the year. I’m going to hit it hard and finish strong. You’re probably ready to end 2015 healthier than it started if you’re anything like me. Start in a little over TWO weeks with us!

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!
