Let’s teach our daughters to love themselves first.
I can remember refusing to wear shorts when it was 90 degrees. I hated my legs.
Skipping lunch because I didn’t want to eat in front of people.
Thinking I was not good enough for my hubby when we started dating.
They pick up on everything we do and say. So teach self ❤️ love. Take care of you. Be nice to yourself. Prioritize your health.
Riley said when we were walking the other day. “Mom I can already feel my stomach getting skinnier.” I just stopped. Is that what she thinks I do all this for? I responded it’s not about that. It’s about being healthier it’s about being stronger. Forget skinny. She’s 7 so she just said. “Oh okay. I feel healthier.”
One of the things I wanted to do with this coaching thing is travel more. Seriously I love it!
Well we are taking the family to Maine with over night stops in Massachusetts and New York in June. I go to Indy in July for our annual coach summit. And in August I’m taking the hubster back to Nashville!
I used to think I’d have to wait until our kids were grown to do any of this! But I wanted to explore with them. I wanted to be able to take a trip with my husband and enjoy time alone together. I am making it happen.
Taking daily action doing something that to me does not feel like work. It does take heart and hustle at times a thick skin. But how cool is it that I get paid to help others be their best selves? While focusing on being the best me I can be!

*** there is no guarantee of success. Depends on the work you put in and the belief you have in yourself.**
I get asked, how do you get results? How do you get abs? How do you lose __ lbs? Can you help me? Then when I answer most don’t like it.
The thing is there is no secret to what I do. No secret to get results. You need to sweat. You need to eat healthy. You need to stop thinking a pill is going to fix everything. That crash diet you’re trying is not sustainable and when you go back to old habits the weight will come back.
Stop thinking so much about the number on the scale, but more about living a healthier life. Stop thinking it’s all about being skinny. Focus on being stronger. Stop using exercise as a punishment for indulging a bit. Find different ways to reward yourself other than food.
The secret sauce is sweat!
“Some say good girls don’t hustle. Well I’m okay with that. I care more about changing the world than I do about its opinion of me.” ~ Rachel Hollis – Girl Stop Apologizing
I spent a really long freaking time worried about what others would think. You know about the fact that I decided to be a stay at home Mom. But realized I want more. That I felt like I lost myself in my kids. I love them more than anything. But my identity became just Mom. I could not even remember the stuff I enjoyed doing and I down played staying home. “Oh you know I’m just a Mom.” When I signed up to be a coach. I wanted to build a business, but let the worry of what others would say hold me back. My faith in myself was non existent. Saying things like that’s great they are so successful. But I’ll never be there. I’ll never be a top coach. While secretly in my head I’m SCREAMING! “I WANT THAT! I WANT TOP 10.” But little old me. I’m just a Mom.
No More Doubt! I love what I do! My work does not feel like work! I help amazing women find themselves and believe in themselves and most importantly… LOVE themselves as they are! While working on getting healthier.
And every single day. My vision for where I’m going is becoming clearer! So I’ll put my head down and hustle. Supporting and loving on my girls is easy. The hustle of the business can be hard. But I will be in that Top 10.
Mommas, Ladies, do you feel what I’m saying? We can do anything we want! Hard work and hustle!
Does joining me sound like something you would want to do?
Fill out an application for my mentorship
I remember thinking. I had to have my shit together to be successful in this business. I quickly realized that was never gonna happen 😬😝. I am a disaster most times. I hate getting ready or getting dressed. I’m messy and chaotic. I swear a ton. I drink (less then one month till I will be reunited with beer 🍺). I care about my team and clients with my whole heart. Their success means everything to me. I’m a homebody. My family is my world. I’m far from perfect.
You know when success started to happen? When I showed up being 💯 me. When I showed up with heart and hustle. Put my blinders on. Put my head down and I worked.
My business is easy in the tasks that I do. Because it’s a passion. But it takes hard work. I love it! I found my calling. So if you’ve been waiting to jump in till you reached your “goal” body. Till you have your shit together. Till whatever else BS you say to your self. I’m saying get started now. Jump build your wings on the way down. .
Progress. The focus is always on the physical. You know that “goal” body. What about the mental?
Let me tell you. If you did not LOVE yourself before a physical transformation you still won’t after. You will constantly be judging yourself, critiquing every little flaw. Pinching your skin where you feel there should be less. Covering the stretch marks. Seeing the cellulite.
And you know what social media does not help, right? Photoshop and filters. Poses and lighting. Flaws hidden to achieve this look of perfection. Where you start to compare.
Let me tell you. Perfection does not exist. It’s boring! And that perfectly posed girl online that is flawless with the perfect body is not you. You are your super power.
You want a summer body? You have one. Any body is a summer body. Seriously!
I struggled this for a long time. I would have not shared this pic because you can see my saggy ass stomach. Hide the stretch marks, they look gross. Exact thoughts. Ugh I hate my thighs. Let’s not wear shorts even though it’s 90000 degrees. 🙄 I’ll never be like her. Let me get this skin removed then I’ll be happy.
All this is bull shit. You know when the shift came? When I stopped focusing on a diet on a goal body or a goal weight. I don’t give a shit what the scale says. It’s a lifestyle I eat healthy because I feel best when doing that. I have energy! Right now I’m on a timed nutrition plan and following to a T just because I want to prove to myself that I can. After it will be balance and moderation. Living my damn life and loving it. I workout to keep my heart healthy and my head right. To have energy! And I read personal development. This is the most life changing 👈🏻👈🏻. I used to think that’s dumb but get your mind right, have faith in yourself. And everything else falls into place.
So focus on loving you! If you don’t believe in you to make a healthy lifestyle change find someone that does. Embrace every single fucking flaw. Change your negative self talk. Because you can do anything!

1 Tbsp chili powder
1tsp dried oregano
2 canned chipotle chili peppers in adobo sauce finely chopped
1 Tbsp adobo sauce (sauce from the canned chipotle chili peppers in adobo sauce)
3 cups shredded chicken breast. ( i cooked some chicken breast in the crock pot all day. but you could use a rotisserie chicken to save time! )
1. Sprinkle broth with gelatin in a small bowl. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium high heat until fragrant.
3. Add onion and jalapeño ; cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.

Did I tell you all that I went back to the program that gave me life again after my surgery last year that put me in surgical menopause?
Well I did! And I feel AMAZING! I decided to go all in! 100% follow the meal plan and the workouts. You see I did this before. I did great until day 51 and then I went to Kid Rock and I hard core cheated. Like drank all the beer ate everything in sight. All day long and the next I had to have hangover foods ha! After that I went back on the plan but allowed cheats. Like a few glasses of wine. treats. You know. I still saw great results.
But lately In my fitness journey I was doing the workouts still and saying I was following my container system. What I was not saying that I was eating a bag or Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips in 2 days. Im not kidding. Lol. I was not really practicing the portion control well. I was not really feeling that great. My hot flashes were coming back. I was uncomfortable and a bit moody.
Recently I got Certified to be a Master Coach in our Ultimate Portion Fix Program. Ive learned so much about sugar addiction and how companies get you to constantly want to keep snacking.
I started doing the program again with the timed nutrition. THE ENERGY! I wake up most days feeling well rested. I am not hungry since I get to eat so much. Seriously its a lot my hubby is always like look at your plate. And I am thrilled. I don’t miss the treats. I have not had alcohol currently since February 9th. Not saying that I will never drink again. But I want to do this the whole 80 days 100% all in! I am almost half way there!
Its amazing when you fuel your body with the right food how you feel. and the results you see.
I cannot wait to see what the rest of the program brings and how many more people I can help now that I am certified!
Would you like to chat?

For The Nutrition Side:
We have 2 different programs
One is based on mindful eating it is less structured and has more freedom. Great for people that don’t like a really strict plan. This can be paired with the workouts as well.
The Other is based on Portion control. This can be paired with the workouts as well and most of them use a similar plan. This breaks down the macros and the science behind why eating like this works. 3 different paths. More structured. This is personally what I follow and am being certified in currently.
I have been using the programs and supplements for 6 years now. I swear by them and I love the results Ive seen. I am more confident have a better sense of self love and truthfully in the groups we focus on that more than anything. It is about being the healthiest best version of ourselves.
