Beachbody Coach Tip: Don't Let The No's Get You Down

Have you been consistently inviting and consistently getting No's?  Have you let those No's get you down?  If your feeling the No Blues, then I have something awesome to share with you that may put it all in perspective.  Check out this video:

Take those No's and keep on's not "no" forever, it's just "not right now."  Keep being consistent, doing your workouts and being a positive example.  Remember, people may not be responding, but they're ALWAYS watching!! :-)

DIY Home Office...It's Happening!!

Yup, that's right.  I am working on setting up my very own home office.  The hubs sweetly surprised me by giving up all hopes of a man cave at this point and provided me with the PERFECT little space for an office.  A cozy, blank canvas that's ready for some style.  It started out as our 'future baby room' that basically collected all the junk we don't want to put in storage, but also didn't use much.

Since a baby is not here yet...who know's when that will be...All in God's time, not ours hehe. :-D  We might as well enjoy this space in our home and make it functional.  Well, as my Beachbody business grows, my need for some space to brainstorm, do calls with other team members and build my dreams is MUCH needed.  I don't wanna share everything before it's finished, but here are a few sneak peaks to set the tone....Think vintage white with pops of pale blue and green.  Girlie, but grown up.  Fun, but not too teeny-bopper. Oh and it's full of LOTS of DIY projects!!!

Here are some inspiration pics I found:

DIY Coffee Filter Wreath on my office door

Framed Wedding Date DIY

DIY Faux Milk Glass vases

Who's excited to see the end result??  I sure am!!!

My Dream Board

You can't accomplish goals that you've never set (Easy enough to understand, right?) here are my goals and dreams that I plan to accomplish this year.  I've been thinking about these for far too's time to jot 'em down and put it ALL out there/  (Feel free to hold me accountable!)

1. I want to lose the last 15lbs.  (I've already lost over 60lbs and this will put me at my ULTIMATE goal weight.)

2.I want to become a Diamond in my business and help at least 2 of my coaches become Diamonds too.

3.  Match my full-time weekly income with Beachbody.  #ThanksBeachbody

4.  Blog consistently!  At least 5 x a week! (No excuses!!!)

5.  Create 1 NEW video a week to publish to YouTube

6.  Go on a BIG anniversary trip with my hubby.  (Crushing this goal in May...woot, woot!)

7.  Share my faith and passions with others, not just on social media, but in my daily life. (Getting way out of my comfort zone)

8.   Recommit to doing activities that make me my BEST ASSET!  

9. Grow my social reach by utilizing Pinterest and Instagram more effectively. (Do trainings, work on them and help them grow.)

10. Have faith in God's plan for my lil family and just ENJOY the journey.  ((When God's ready to bless us with a little baby, we'll be so happy, but until then we'll continue to enjoy our marriage to the fullest!)

Personal Development....Go Get You Some!!

I believe that success starts with you and a strong sense of faith in yourself with a willingness to grow. It's one of the vital behaviors of being a Team Beachbody coach....Personal Developmeny. I'm so thankful that this company encourages it's coaches to continually learn, grow and evolve.  It's not just about physical health or exercise, they care about your mentality and knowledge too.

Change totally makes people uncomfortable, I mean, it totally makes ME UNCOMFORTABLE sometimes (especially since I used to be content being a wall flower).  That's exactly why getting more personal development is so helps me to be bold and encouraged enough to JUMP outside my comfort zone.

Growing up, I was ALWAYS stuck in my own little bubble, terrified of what others thought of my every single move. I always worked soooo hard to fit in and was terrified to stand out. I made responsible decisions, never got into trouble, did EXACTLY what my parents said...which is all good and well, but fear was ALWAYS holding me back.  

Fear of what would people would think of me, fear of failure, and the list goes on.  WHO CARES what others think?!  I recently heard a quote that i now LOVE:  "What others think of you is none of your business."   Letting go of that little by little has seriously made a HUGE difference in my life. You have to surround yourself with the right people though. Remember, change makes people uncomfortable…Not just you, but the people around you. They may wonder WHY you are doing it?….but follow your heart and passion, because sooner or later they will ask you HOW you have made such an amazing change.  It may take time, but people will notice the changes you're making.

This is why the Beachbody coaching opportunity is not for everyone.  It’s for people who want to grow a successful business helping other live healthy, more fulfilling lives.  Losing weight is so much more than shedding pounds.  It’s about letting go of fears, overcoming the past, and embracing the future.  We facilitate online challenge groups that are short-term sacrifices to help people makes steps towards the body they’ve always wanted.  We help create transformations and give them their life back.

March Favorites

Since March is coming to a close soon, I thought I'd share a few things I've been loving this month....

1. DIY Infinity Scarves:  I have tons of pashminas and by tying the ends together you have a simple, no-sew way to make an adorable infinity scarf.  I have been wearing these almost daily....LOVE them!!!

2. Makeup Forever HD: My hubby surprised me with ALL new makeup at Sephora around Christmas time and since then i have been completely addicted to this awesome foundation!! It's tick enough to cover any flaws, but not at all cake-y.  Perfection!!

3. Milk Chocolate Bronzer: For a super light skinned person like me, bronze can be very tricky, but this one is light and does just the trick.  It really helps contour my cheekbones and now it's one of my must-have makeup items.  

4. Bracelet Stacking:  This continues to be something i do DAILY and Target has awesome bracelets for low prices and lot's of jewelry on Clearance...I just love wearing a watch with 2 or 3 bracelets.  It really seems to amp up an outfit!

5. Taupe Drawer Polish:  This polish is a neutral purple color that works for both Winter and Spring....perfect transition color.  I have been wearing it A TON lately!!

What is a Beachbody Challenge Group?

My challenge groups run online for 21 days in a private group that I create on Facebook.  The GREAT thing about online challenge groups are that you don't have to live near me to join in. If you live in the US, Canada, or Puerto Rico then the challenge is open to you.  The groups include all of the following:

-Beachbody fitness program based on your specific needs and goals
-1 month supply of Shakeology in the flavor of your choice
-Free 30 day trial of Team Beachbody Club membership
-Daily health and fitness tips
-Personalized meal plans

Challenge groups are a GREAT way to keep everyone focused on their goals.  Having support from other ladies who understand your struggle is so helpful!  During the group, I post daily motivational tips, assignments and mini-challenges to keep everyone engaged and going strong throughout the 21 days (and beyond)! I’m an independent Beachbody Coach! My job and passion is to help you live out your transformation story.  It's cool to be part of helping someone lose weight and change their life.  For 21 days, we become a close knit group of online fitness friends who support and encourage each other along the way.  

So what do you need to do to join in?  Just fill out this application and I'll get in touch with you to go over your goals:

Why I became and Beachbody Coach and how it’s changed my life

At the end of October 2013, I decided I needed a bit of a change…I had done p90x in the past and was about to start another round with my hubby.  We enjoyed the workouts and how much it had helped our fitness improve.  I looked online for some tips and tricks to eat healthier while following the program…..that’s when I stumbled upon my coach’s blog.  After seriously reading her entire blog in one weekend,  I talked about it to my husband and decided to sign up as a coach.

I had not even had an actual conversation with her, but her story inspired me…so I jumped on the idea.  Then in November, my family hit a bit of a rough patch and money became super tight…we were stressed and overwhelmed with everything…unable to relax and worried for the security of my little family, I sent my coach a tearful message telling her that I would work as hard as possible to move my business forward to help my family reach financial freedom.

In January my business really began to take off…it took time and some hard work, but my income steadily increased, my team started to grow and the stress started to fade.  Now I am consistently making enough to make both of our car payments each month.  What an amazing BLESSING this business has been to me, my family and the people I have met along the way. 

I am looking for more ladies like me, who are:

-Ready to make a BIG change in their lives
-Willing to work hard to reach their goals
-Have a passion for health and fitness
-Love helping people

If that sounds like you, then fill out this application so I can learn more about you and then we can connect to discuss the opportunity further:

I am sooo excited to have the opportunity to share Beachbody with others…Taking a leap of faith can really change your life.

What is Beachbody coaching??

I've had a bunch of people ask me "What is that coaching thing you're doing?" ...Some people just think I'm on Facebook ALL the time. My husband knows that I'm passionate about helping others learn how to get fit and eat healthy. My family knows what a HUGE difference Beachbody has made in my life. But what is it that we REALLY do as coaches?'

I found out about coaching through an AWESOME blog post made by my own coach and JUMPED on the oppourtunity without even talking to her about it first (lol), but I know most people like to dip their toes in the water before jumping all in. So, I'm offering a free, one week "What is Coaching?" group to answer these questions:

  • What does a coach actually do?
  • How much time does it take to be a coach?
  • Is there training available?
  • What kind of person makes a great coach?
  • What kind of income can I make and how?
If you want the answers to those questions and more, then join in the ZERO obligation "What is coaching?" group on Facebook. For seven days, I'll be sharing with you what it takes to be successful, and how you can CHOOSE your level of commitment based on your personal goals.

The group is FREE to just tell me you want in, and you are in! BOOM!! We kick off on Monday, March 24th! Just comment below or message me on Facebook at and I'll add you to the group....simple as that!

Fashion Round Up

Here are a few outfits I've worn lately:

From Left to Right: 
Outfit 1: I love easy to wear printed tops...just add skinnies, boots, a colorful card and a scarf then you're good to go!  I got this scarf as a gift from my hubby's MiMi.  

Outfit 2: The long tunic was an AWESOME thrift store find for $1.95. The scarf was also a pretty good score at $7 from DEB. 

Outfit 3: I LOVE printed pants and there are amazing with these incredible bow heels i scored from Charming Charlie's for just $4.99. This ruffle top was from Marshall's and I got it for my honeymoon...I never wore it, because it was too tight, but now it fits. :-)

Which outfit is your fav and why?

See the change and make it happen

Do you have a goal that you hope to accomplish?  Do you have a BIG dream that you’re hoping comes into fruition?

Well, have you tried to take time to visualize youself reaching that goal or living out that dream?  No?  Well, try it.  Take a second to close your eyes and see it all play out…think of the details….

-How would your life change if your accomplished it?
-Where would you be and who would be by your side?
-When would you reach that goal?

Taking time to visualize yourself reaching your goals and living out your dreams each day will not only help you to focus on it…it will also help you stay positive and confident in those goals.  If you don’t strongly believe that you can achieve it, then you never will.

Beachbody Coach Tip: Don’t waste time and effort throwing spaghetti

Do you remember when your mom made spaghetti and she would throw a piece at the wall. If it stuck, then she knew it was fully cooked. Often times, it took multiple attempts and lots of wasted spaghetti.

Instead of guessing and making things up as you go, track your activities, make to-do lists (Stick to them).  Chalene Johnson's 30 Day Push is a great way to learn how to create a GREAT to-do list, check it out: 

Also, schedule specific slots of time that you will use to complete everything. This will help you to stay organized and waste MUCH less time.
