Celebrity-worthy Body = Hours in the Gym

Think you need a gym membership and hours with a personal trainer to get that coveted, celebrity-worthy body? Total MYTH!! I cannot stress enough that 30 minutes a day is all you need. You CAN make time for 30 minutes.
I used to spend $400+ for a personal trainer that had minimal training & taught incorrect technique and form at a nearby gym. The average Beachbody Challenge Pack (Fitness Program with Shakeology) costs around $165.00 not to mention the technique and form instructions are clear & specific.
I swear by these fitness programs because they WORK. When I wanted to be extra fit for the hot guy I was dating (now my hubby ❤) to go on a tropical getaway, I turned to Beachbody. I’ll never forget him complimenting my sculpted arms on that trip. Me! My arms!! I turned to Beachbody again to lose the babyweight and I’m now verging on the best shape of my life. I’ll say it again, 30 minutes a day is ALL YOU NEED.

Good Ole Water

So I’ve talked about this before, but I think we all need a reminder every now and again. Feeling like your pants are tighter and a little bit more sluggish today from this weekend’s festivities? It does have to do with those extra helpings of alcohol, desert, and candy, BUT what will help you greatly is to drink AS MUCH water as you can today. Drinking a lot of water will motivate your body to rid itself of the extra water weight, flush toxins, boost your energy, and more. I drink 3 to 4 of these per day!! Get to it!!

To the Easter Bunny Helpers…

Attention ALL Easter Bunny Helpers! Here’s a little guide for your favorite basket candies:
4 Peeps = 130 Calories (& 32 grams of Sugar!!)
35 Jelly Beans (1 Serving) = 140 Calories (& 37 grams of Sugar!!)
12 Cadbury Chocolate Eggs = 190 Calories (& 8 grams of fat!!)
1 Cadbury Creme Egg = 150 Calories (& 5 grams of fat!!)
1 Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg (this one breaks my heart)= 180 Calories (10 grams of fat!!)

Now I’m going to go make some Shakeology, because the Easter Bunny asked me to get some Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs and I don’t want to wipe out my workout this morning!!!

Easter, calories, weight loss, beachbody, recipes, candy, healthy eating, easter basket, reeses, peeps, jelly beans, babies, kids, family, eat this not that

Best. Job. Ever.

Becoming a Beachbody Coach is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I say “one of” rather than “the best,” because both marrying my husband and having our daughter is by far the best. Of course!
My future is so bright, with trips I only dreamt of and exciting milestones. I am living the life I always wished for. I get to spend as much time with my daughter as I want and have a successful career. I lead a healthy lifestyle, and continue to be in the best shape of my life, and I get paid for it!

Today has been a beautiful day and I’ve been enjoying it with my family. How awesome is that?! I used to watch beautiful days from the inside of an office. I am hosting a live Coaching Sneakpeak April 5th, with no strings, just honest information to help you decide if this can be an opportunity for you too. Join me! Open a door to living a life you have wished for!

Grateful

As I move a little slower this morning, I thank God for helping me to understand, over the past year especially, that this is something to be grateful for. My baby girl woke me many times throughout the night as did a mischievious dog who thought a baby bouncy seat was her new bed.

I am so grateful to have a daughter who can wake me and that I can wake and walk to her room to comfort her. I am even more grateful for the love I am privileged to experience as her mother. It is unlike any other.

It may sound cliché, but the truth is there are so many that can’t do a number of the things I just described; whether it’s have children and experience that love or walk down the hall. My husband, a firefighter and paramedic, describes people he encounters every day like this.

So to my tired mommies out there, enjoy this time and that you have someone to be tired for.
