As moms we have a lot on our plates. Diaper changes, play dates, family meals, classroom meetings, job responsibilities…
You name it, we take care of it. And often that means we put ourselves and our own needs last. I quickly found, though, when I neglected myself and especially my nutrition, I didn’t have as much to give.
A question I get asked ALL the time by challengers and other people I talk to is, “Should I take a rest day?” I used to ask the same question too, so I thought I’d share a little insight on the matter.
Is a Rest Day Essential?
So to answer the question in one word – YES!!! Yes, you need a rest day for a couple of very important reasons. Continue reading
Whether you found my page as a nursing mama wanting to get fit or an individual recovering from an eating disorder? or just someone looking for a little encouragement and maybe a few easy recipes, I am so glad you are here. And I’d love to tell you a little bit more about what it is that I really do as a wellness coach and ambassador for change!
When I first started coaching, I felt like I had all of the resources I needed to set my challengers up for success. While that was true then, it is EVEN more true now!!! I am pretty excited to share that Beachbody is giving a pretty big gift this season – a revolution in fitness – but more on that later!
As a coach, I get to support people in their health and fitness journeys by running virtual challenge groups. And in January Beachbody has invited me to run a group that allows participants to get paid for getting fit! But now they’re taking it one step further!!!
Today, December 27, 2016, the company is launching what I consider a revolution in fitness through the All-Access On Demand Challenge Pack. Why is this so revolutionary? Well, the Annual All-Access Beachbody On Demand membership provides TOTAL access to EVERY PROGRAM available on Beachbody On Demand, plus future releases! Continue reading
For years I had tried to do the whole “fitness thing” on my own. I’d make a little progress and then fall backward. Or worse, I’d end up going off the deep end with my eating or exercise and just let it get way out of control – one way or another.
When my daughter came along, though, I knew something had to change, and I researched and researched until I found something that would make it different. That’s when I got started with the 21 Day Fix, as most of you know. And while I attribute my weight loss and change and nutrition and fitness to the Fix, I couldn’t have done it without the missing piece – the community.
When I got started and really dug in with my fitness journey, I also committed to being a part of something that was bigger than me, something that supported and encouraged me, and something that provided me with everything I needed to be successful – a fit family and the community I needed to really stick with it.
Since realizing what a difference this community made for me, I wanted to be able to provide that to YOU on a variety of different levels. Now, I still run my traditional challenge groups, and that is still where I provide the most specific support. However, I am opening up a new opportunity for anyone who is looking to make a healthy change but isn’t quite ready to commit to a challenge group yet.
