P90X Workouts & the 21 Day Fix Meal Plan

The hubs and I decided to embark on a new journey....we're sweating for our friend Megan's wedding.  I'm going to be a bridesmaid in her wedding in November and we want to get fit and healthy for her big day.

Today we started with Day One of our P90X journey.  I'm so excited to get back to the program that started my whole journey with Beachbody back in 2012.

Along with P90X, I'm doing the 21 Day Fix Meal plan....check out what I'll be eating this week:

What is Beachbody Coaching Webinar: January 21st at 7PM CT

In 2011, the life I was living was a far cry from my DREAM life....I was 194.4lbs, I was self-concious, overwhelmed and a recent college grad with little idea of what I wanted for my future.

Sometimes, you just settle for a life that's less than you dreamed of and get comfy in that place without even noticing it until you feel stuck. Little did I know God was working on me and BIG, exciting things were in store!!

I was affraid to dream and had just settled in a job that was 'meh' def wasn't my DREAM job!!

Thankfully God had a BIG plan for my life that he was putting into place.  In March of 2011, I decided to get healthy and started my weightloss journey.  In 2012, I started P90X and fell in LOVE with Beachbody programs. I searched a ton of blogs looking for transformation pictures and found my own coaches blog.  I literally read her entire blog in one weekend and signed up to be a coach on her team (in October 2013) before even talking to her.

Her blog inspired me to dream go for it...and to try something waaaay outside my comfort zone.

I never imagined that I would be a team leader, getting to attend team leadership retreats and becoming friends with so many positive ladies all along the way.

If you can relate to where I started or if you're feeling frustrated, stuck or unsure of what's next but you KNOW God designed you to do BIG things...I URGE you to take a chance and try something new by joining in on our next webinar.

I WAS that girl just a few short years ago. NOW I want to pay it forward and inspire YOU to get healthy and fit while encouraging others along the way.
Don't worry, we'll be going on this journey TOGETHER!!!  I'll be right there with you every step of the way!

This WEDNESDAY, January 21st at 7PM Central, you'll hear all about my journey with Beachbody along with my best friend Megan McCusker and how she's paying for her wedding and building a life by her own design. And she isn't stopping there...she has HUGE plans including helping her dad RETIRE!

Join us WEDNESDAY at 7PM Central!!!

FREE Online Fit Club: You're Invited!!

Since becoming a Beachbody Coach my Facebook news feed went from whiney complaint about politics, the weather and relationship drama to full of positivity, healthy recipes, and people changing their lives for the better.  What a breathe of fresh air?!
I'm so thankful that I get to surround myself with so many amazing Beachbody coaches and people who are working on their health and fitness journeys. 

(Check out the CEO of Beachbody & celeb trainer, Autumn Calabrese chatting with us about all the awesome new things happening with Beachbody in 2015.)

So, do you need more positivity, enocouragement and motivation in your life?

Not sure what a Fit Club group's a little run down:
It's a group of like-minded ladies working on their health and fitness TOGETHER.  In the group, there's daily motivation, support, encouragement, fit tips, biweekly video chats, monthly giveaways and MUCH MORE. 
As a Fit Club member, you'll also get FIRST DIBS on all my upcoming challenge groups and events.  So what are you waiting for, JOIN IN!! :)  ~Kendra~

Post Back Injury: Getting BACK in the game!

For most of us, a back injury means skipping daily workouts for months at a time. ((Yes, that was me.) Sometimes, people retire their workout clothes for good. (NO WAY.....That's so NOT me!)

I am on the road to recovery after over 6 months of 'taking it slow' and chiropractic treatments, my back is on the mend and now it's time for me to share this new journey with you. 

First, I want to fill y'all in on what happened to my back.  My husband and I went to Maine in Late May 2014 and while we were there my back started hurting.  When we got back home the pain became so bad that it hurt to stand, sit....basically any type of movement.  I honestly thought I might have appendicitis.  One night the pain was so bad, I was hunched over crying so my husband took me to the urgent care.  They did tons of tests and confirmed that nothing was wrong with my appendix, so the next day I went to see a chiropractor to check my back.

The chiropractor found that my neck was tilted forward, I had slight scoliosis in the middle of my back and the vertibrae at the tail of my spine were compressed.  Apparently, these issues had been there a while, but just hadn't caused me any pain till then. 

I started with 3 chiropractic visits a week and worked it all the way down to 1 and then he cleared me to start exercsiging.  Here's where I messed up....I started off waaaay to strong.  I did double workouts, I didn't rest enough and I just didn't listen to my body.  I pushed too hard! 

The strain caused me to pinch my ciatic nerve in my lower back....and goodness, that was the MOST pain I have ever experienced.  I am still going to the chiropractor regularly, but my back is doing MUCH better.  I'm honestly thankful for this experience, because it's humbled me, helped me to listen to my body and also gave me a HUGE appreciation for the body and life that I have.  Back pain and injuries are no joke....if you have back pain, get it checked!! 

I wanted to share all of that with you all, not to whine, but so that you can see where I'm coming from and hopefully learn from my failures and mistakes.  So now, I'm asking you to come along with me on a new journey.  On Monday, I started my first round of the 21 Day Fix post back injury.  I will be following the modifier during this round and I would love to have YOU join me over these next 21 days.

So what’s holding you back? Is it an injury? Chronic back pain? A busy lifestyle? Long work hours?

Guess what.....You can STILL get healthy and work towards your goals.

I know because, like I shared above, I’ve been there.  I also know because every day I get to help people who many be in the same situation through health and fitness challenge groups along with my FREE FB Fit Club.

Keep in mind, many of these guys have serious health or time limitations when they start the program. And they’ve considered giving up too.

If this story resonates with you, CLICK HERE to RSVP to our next Health & Fitness Challenge Group that will be kicking off January 19th.   

But whether you choose Team Bombshell Evolution or not isn’t important. What’s important is that you work towards your goals and DON'T give up!!

Remember, the difference between where you are today, and where you’ll be by the end of 2015, is the quality of the coaching, the mentorship, and the support you get along the way. Trust me, it makes a HUGE difference.

So my question to you is: Are ready to get started?

Want daily support and encouragement from a Beachbody coach?

If you’d like guidance along the waym, I’d be glad to work with you. In fact, I’m opening my next challenge group for new customers looking for the same thing.

So, if you're ready to get started, CLICK HERE to RSVP to our next Health & Fitness Challenge Group that will be kicking off January 19th.   

Also, I would love to hear your story!!!  Have you every had an injury and had to reacclimate to a workout routine?  How did it go?  Share below! :-D   ~Kendra~

Team Beachbody's Super Sunday #DFWSuper

Yesterday, I got to attend Beachbody's annual Super Saturday, or as Dallas does it, Super Sunday event. 
SO-->>WHAT IS SUPER SATURDAY?It’s our quarterly get-together, where Coaches from across the USA come together at hundreds of events to prepare for the next quarter, recognize success, share tips, and MAKE THINGS HAPPEN!
I was sooo excited to meet up with a few of my teammates, see the CEO, Carl D. and get to preview 21 Day Fix Extreme with celebrity trainer Autumn Calabrese LIVE!!
Going to these events is a HUGE part of my journey as a coach, my motivation to continue to work hard and let's be honest....they're just so much FUN!!!  You get to meet Elite coaches, like the lovely Danielle Katz, learn about all the new Beachbody info before anyone else and get some amazing training from leaders in the business.

I had a great time and I can't wait till next quarters Super Sunday!!!
So what do you do after a Beachbody event when the parking garage is overflowing and there's no way you're getting out anytime soon.....that's right, you eat a protein bar and read some personal development!! :-) 
If you haven't checked out Entreleadership by Dave Ramsey, I highly reccomend it...he's funny, relatable and his book's just so easy to read.  He also has great nuggets of wisdom that are easy to apply to your business.  Love it!! 
Would you like to start going to events like this one?  Going on all-expenses paid retreats and vacations?  Are you ready to get healthy and fit while helping others all along the way?  If so, then Beachbody Coaching might be right for you!!

Go to kitchen and find (at least) one unhealthy item that is keeping you from reaching your health and fitness goals.

Don’t forget to comment on this thread with “Posted” and a link to where you posted it after you’re done.

By now I bet a lot of people are commenting on the fun hashtags you’ve been using during our mini challenges this week.
