I HATE the Treadmill, but I LOVE to Eat! Sound Familiar? Change Your Ways in 30 Days!

Summer is a distant memory and the kids are back in school.  This means a lot of things to many of us.  I know for me it’s the start of Preschool for Aden, Park Workouts with my favorite moms, Soccer practice and games for Madi, Will’s in Football this year, work travel, training and more. There are so many areas in life that I could come up with excuses as to why I don’t have time to exercise or eat healthy.  They are all legitimate excuses too!

excuses

 

  • I didn’t sleep well last night.
  • My 4 year old woke me up 20 million times.
  • The kids kept interrupting my workout so I had to quit early.
  • Shakeology is expensive.
  • We have too many expenses this month so it will have to wait until next month.
  • I just don’t have enough hours in the day.
  • I need a nap.
  • I need to get to Target between school pick up and soccer practice.
  • I will workout tomorrow.
  • I’ll make healthier meals tomorrow.

 

YES all these things are totally legitimate excuses.  Believe me I have given them all.  But I have also learned along the way that you can absolutely find the time.  Something so simple as DVR’ing your favorite TV show, popping in T25, doing a 25 minute workout, then hit play on the DVR and catch your fav show all within the same hour it would of taken you to watch one show!  Sometimes it just takes re-arranging your schedule, your mindset and your will power to change.  When it comes to food you also have the option to continue to eat the way you currently are, exercise but not quite ever really achieve the results you are hoping for.  It’s easy to just continue to count calories but eat highly processed, sodium packed foods and  not get results.  But it’s so darn frustrating to feel like you are exercising to death and nothing is happening.  Been there done that!  Instead, it’s time to focus on the foods you put in your mouth.  No more counting calories everyday, no more depriving yourself and only eating rice cakes and drinking water.  It’s time to feed yourself really really good foods that fill you up and leave you feeling satisfied.  No crazy recipes, no ingredients that you have to search to the end of the world for, just normal everyday clean foods!!  Everything is kid tested and husband approved.  Think crockpot meals, oven bakes, healthy breakfast foods, fabulous quick easy snacks and more.

 

It’s time, I mean seriously, who are you kidding?  The conditions will never be perfect.  But you can accomplish so much more if you start now.  The sooner you make a change the sooner you will have more energy, more confidence and the ability to go out and do the things you couldn’t do before.

So how can I help!!?? Well, for the next 4 days I’m offering a special deal in coordination with Beachbody’s current promotion for T25.

If you are looking to get a customized health and fitness plan through me as your Beachbody Coach, then enroll in my 30 day health and fitness challenge test group.  I can hook you up with T25 at the best price and with the most free incentives.

What is a test group?
You purchase your challenge pack from your coach. Then, you are accepted into our private online support group.

Each day you will log into the group for your tip of the day, daily motivation, inspiration and accountability. I will share recipes along with ways to handle late night munchies, sugar cravings, emotional eating, temptations and more. You will be accountable each day to report with the group your food and your workouts!

At the end of the 30 days we will measure our progress, submit our results and in 30 days you will have kicked bad habits, introduced new healthy habits and be on your way to creating life long health and wellness for you and your family!

Also, you will receive customized meal planning, recipes, tips, AND strategies for staying focused when fall sports, football parties, and happy hours come around.  How do you handle emotional eating, stress eating, temptations and cravings?  All of these things will be discussed during the 30 day program.  Lastly, each member of the group is required to replace 1 meal a day with Shakeology.  Shakeology is not a protein shake, I repeat SHAKEOLOGY IS NOT A PROTEIN SHAKE!  It’s a complete meal which means it has the proper carb to protein ratio so that you stay full for at least 3 hours, it curbs your sweet cravings, gives you natural energy (no caffeine) and helps you lose weight by giving you a controlled portion size.  Shakeology is equivalent to eating 5 salads in one meal.  So if you tend to not eat enough veggies, are skipping meals and/or making poor choices due to lack of planning then Shakeology is your saving grace.

Why Beachbody?

beachbody vs others

I saw a fellow Beachbody Coach post this today and it really hit home!  I felt compelled to share it with my readers.  I started my fitness and health journey over a year ago.  I took the Insanity Challenge to change my life forever!  At that time I had no idea what Beachbody was!  I had heard about Insanity and P90X but never Shakeology, TurboFire or even coaching!  I just knew at that point in my life I need to get in shape and I had no idea where to start.  So when I decided to do Insanity it was perfect because it came with a schedule, it told me what workout to do each day and I had a community of support to keep me on track.  Just this morning as I was standing in the bathroom putting on my makeup a friend texted me and commented on how she was surprised that I was awake and did my workout.  I have been packing/moving and it would of been so easy to just take another day off from my workouts because I was overwhelmed or needed the rest.  But to be totally truthful, I actually feel pretty good today so that would have just been an excuse.  Instead, I knew that other people were counting on me to get out of bed, press play and check in on them to make sure they were up too!  So without even thinking twice I got up, put my clothes on and headed to the livingroom to do my workout!  I did my PiYo Drench and I must say I love that workout!  Chalene just motivates me to do more and be better!  I feel like superwoman when I workout with her!

So back to the reason why I posted this picture!  When I first started coaching and working out people thought I was crazy.  They thought it was another fad or phase I was going through.  But now that I am over a year into coaching and working out I feel even more compelled to share this with you!  As an Indpendent Beachbody Coach I am not here to just sell you Shakeology or a fitness program.  My job is to help you transform your life, to make eating healthy and exercising a regular part of your daily routine.  When I first signed up as a coach all I wanted to do was help 1 person transform their life, like I did to mine.  I wanted to start an Eat Clean Club and teach others the principles I learned through this challenge. I put my customers and friends first and poured my heart and soul into my customers and my first challenge group I learned the value of compassion!  I learned that when you care about others and truly do what’s best for them then the rest will follow!  Because of the time I invest each day I am successful.  People ask me all the time why my services are free!  I could charge an arm and a leg for my personal consultation, motivation and support but instead I don’t!  I honestly care about you just getting healthy and fit!  Sure I get a 25% commission from all Beachbody programs and Shakeology I sell but I am not going to recommend something that I don’t think you will or can stick with!  It’s about you finding your soulmate workout and LOVING it!  Exercise should feel rewarding and empowering and you should feel good when you are done!

I love that Beachbody offers this kind of support and that they developed the Beachbody Challenge groups!  What better way to stay on track other than to be surrounded by people who want the same things!  I love love love checking in everyday and seeing the progress my challengers are making!  I have gone through the same struggles that they have and it’s empowering to know that if I can do it with 5 kids, a boyfriend, family and busy life then you can too!

281

This support system is amazing and I love my Beachbody family!  Out of all the other fitness or weight loss programs I have seen this doesn’t even compare to the quality and sheer dedication that goes into it!  I am so proud to be a part of this organization and I hope that if you are reading this and are at a point in your life where you have hit rock bottom you will reach out to me for help and support!  I am here for you, I can help you in your journey and together we can be better and tackle anything life has to throw at us!  When you feel good about yourself you are a better mother, wife and friend!

The best part about all of this is that I truly stand behind Shakeology and their fitness programs!  Shakeology changed my life and you can’t put a price tag on happiness!  The energy, improved health and weight loss were worth it all!  To know that I am putting something that is whole and not processed into my body makes me feel amazing!  The results are the truth and I have the results and the results of many others to prove it!
So have a wonderful Friday and weekend!  If you are at a point in your life where you need support, I’m your girl!  Send me a message or sign up for a free account and I’d be glad to strategize and develop a plan to get you to the picture in your mind!  We can do it, together!!!!  You WILL SUCCEED!!!

PiYo P90X3 Week 2 Progress Update – 6 steps to get back on track

Week 2 of my P90X3/PiYo hybrid schedule is in the bag and I’m on to Week 3!!

I will admit I have been having a hard time getting those workouts in consistently. And my eating, well, it’s been a little 60/40. There are no workouts that will out exercise too many calories, carbs, sugars, etc.

It’s time for a little Coach Momma T TOUGH LOVE!

My own best advice I would give one of my challengers or clients:

6 STEPS TO GET BACK ON TRACK

1. Schedule your workouts in the a.m.morning workouts

2. Create a meal plan

21 day fix meal plan

3. Meal prep on Sundays

4. Throw away anything in the kitchen that might distract you from your goals

junk food

mealprepmonday

5. Stick post it’s or motivational pictures up in your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom

motivation wall

fitspo board

6. Have a set goal you’re working towards

goals list

I truly feel that the hope of instant results is the reason that so many people fail. They are not willing to see it through.  We expect instant gratification and instant transformation.  It’s not going to happen. I mean it literally took me 1 round of Insanity (60days) to lose 15 lbs then it took me 60 days of T25, and 3 rounds of 21 Day Fix to get in the best shape of my life.  Honestly, it wasn’t an overnight deal.  I learned how to change my diet, to strip it down, to cut out foods that were causing me to hang onto weight and it took will power.  I remember all the things I held strong with, birthday cake, ice cream, donuts, cookies at Christmas, drinks at the bar!  It was a sacrifice because I wanted to change more than I wanted to remain the same. It’s the same with you!  How bad do you want it.  If you bought PiYo then stick with it!  You invested the money now give it 100% each and every day with the workouts and the nutrition plan and have a friendly contest with yourself to see if you can have a better transformation than the girl in the infomercial.  I’m going to be right there with YOU!! Anything that you put your whole heart into you are going to succeed at!  That’s the bottom line!!!!

Burn Fat Faster

Does this sound familiar?

You’re religiously running on the treadmill at the same pace for the same time, 5 days a week. You initially lose a little weight bit but then you start stalling.

What in THE HECK is going on here?

This is because your super smart body becomes so damn efficient at running {or whatever your chosen cardio regime}, it adjusts to the routine and starts to burn fewer calories.

cropped-diamond-jump.jpg

If you’ve ever hit a plateau in your fat loss goals, you’ll know what I mean. Frustrating? You bet. However, there are ways to make your workout more efficient, giving you better results, and, wait for it…more enjoyable!

It’s called high intensity interval training, or HIIT, and if you’ve ever gotten your ass kicked doing Insanity, you’ve experienced it.

Let’s first talk about why HIIT is so very awesome.

1. Metabolism-boosting

In addition to the superb late-effect calorie burn, HIIT also boosts your production of human growth hormone {HGH} by up to 450% for up to 24 hours after your workout. HGH is responsible for not only cranking up our inner furnace {metabolism}, but also lessens the aging process, making your body a sweet {and youthful} little fat-burning machine.

2. Stronger heart and lungs

Yes, you may FEEL like you’re gonna die whilst sprinting 100 yards over and over again, but this is short-lived. These short bursts help to condition your heart and lungs to be stronger, which means faster recovery and longer endurance for future ass-kickings.

3. Lose fat, not muscle

As opposed to steady continuous cardio, which has been linked to actual muscle loss, HIIT and weight training preserves and builds muscle mass. Just look at this side-by-side comparison of a typical marathon runner versus a {non-juicing} track athlete.

4. No equipment needed

This is a budget-conscious/road warrior/minimalist’s dream. If you have athletic shoes and space {indoors or out}, you can get your workout on. Anytime, anywhere.

5. Efficient

Less is actually more. To start reaping the benefits of HIIT, you need as little as 30 minutes 2-3 times per week, as opposed to endless hours logged on the treadmill. Yawn…

The beauty of HIIT is that you can create a workout that suits your lifestyle, likes, and environment. The following example can be done on a treadmill, on the street, on a trail, on a bike, on an elliptical, using a jump rope, rollerblading, kayaking, etc. The sky’s the limit.

I’ve modeled my personal HIIT routine after Dr. Mercola’s Peak 8 Fitness workout.

30 Minute MIX™ HIIT Routine insanity hiit workout

2 minute warm-up {i.e., fast walking, light jog}

Sprint {or the equivalent, if not running} for 30 seconds {go balls to the wall – as hard and fast as your body will take you, ~70-85% of your max heart rate}

90 second recovery {i.e., fast walking, light jog}

Repeat the 30 second intensity and 90 second recovery 14 times

2 minute rest {i.e., fast walking, light jog}

Do this 2-3 times per week, in addition to strength training and watch the transformation* unfold.

If you’re in the beginning stages {or short on time}, start out with 20 minutes and slowly build to 30 minutes. I highly recommend using a heart rate monitor for timing and making sure you’re in the “zone” with your max heart rate. Here’s a handy tool to determine what that is. This is the heart rate monitor that I have. Not too fancy, but does the job.

And, if you’re ready to workout at home with real results you have to see what we are doing in T25 workouts.

Fortunately, with workouts like Insanity and TurboFire, HIIT has become way more mainstream, so you won’t look {too much} like a crazy person who is being chased by a bear if you opt to do this around your neighborhood. I’m not gonna lie, I do this in my little town and have received some strange looks from passers-by. Whatever.

* = Transformation will be less likely unless you’re eating a clean, balanced diet. Not sure where to begin? I can help with that.

Have you ever tried HIIT and if so, what was the reaction of onlookers to your regimen? I’d LOVE to hear! Please leave a comment. And, if you want to start your change on my team for real results leave your email HERE or friend me on FB at FB.com/tangojuliet7

Start with Why

What is your “WHY?”

“I have tried so many times, BUT…”

“I need to workout but can’t find the time…”

“I can’t seem to stay (or get) motivated”BECAUSE I WANT TO LOOK GOOD

“It is too hard to eat right…”

“I workout for a day or two, I don’t see results, so I stop…”

Are any of these you? If you are looking for answers on fixing the above I am going to turn this back to you and ask a very important question:  What is your why?

The KEY to your Success

It is impossible to stay committed and determined to do ANYTHING unless you know your “WHY”.  The “why” is the REAL reason, the DRIVING reason that you WANT to change, workout, get healthy, or whatever it is that you truly want to do.

You can’t change for someone else and you can’t change for non significant reasons. You can ONLY change if your WHY becomes important and visible.

How do you find your why?

Block out some time and put a lot of thought into this. WHAT is your why?

Flip through magazines and see what appeals to you and consider making a vision board which can help reveal some deep desires and why’s to you. Do some soul searching and get serious in your thinking here.

Is it for health?
To feel GREAT daily?
For more energy?
To be around and active for your children?
There is no wrong “why”, it just needs to have meaning and be personal to YOU!

Along those lines, you can’t take somebody else’s why and make it yours.  Doesn’t matter that your family, doctor, friends, etc., think something should be important to you.  YOU have to make it important to YOU!

Once you get to the route of what your “why” is, it CHANGES and DRIVES you.  All of a sudden solutions will start presenting themselves to your problems.  The hurdles become crystal clear and you start to take action and make things happen.  All because you found out what dives you, you found your why.

Discovering ywhy and howour WHY is the most important step to changing as it gets your mind right.  It is a critical first step that I include in my programs because once you find your “why” and your mind is focused, you cannot be stopped!

When your mind is active and focused on positive things, you WILL get positive results the exact same way an unsure and unfocused mind gets poor results.

If you are ready to make a change and find the answer to whatever your dilemma may be (no time, lack of motivation, etc.),  FIND YOUR WHY …and the answer will come to you.

All About Abs

You asked and here are my answers:

All About Abs

Here are some of the top questions and my answers:

Are abs really made in the kitchen?

It depends. Here is the deal with abs. Nutrition plays a huge role with almost everybody that has abs. This is because if you EAT more than you are burning in a day, you will store fat and have a layer over those abs.

If you are an athlete, train at a super high intensity, etc. the nutrition becomes slightly less critical as you are burning lots of calories and your metabolism works efficiently so that you will have a flat belly due to your hard training. This is why you will see ultra fit people or athletes get away with eating whatever they want and still having abs.

For example, I used to eat a super strict diet and would do long sessions of cardio to get those abs to come out of hiding.  As soon as I went off my “diet” they would disappear.  Now, due to my high intensity workouts, I am not nearly as regimented or strict with my diet, but I have abs all the time.  I also have to mention that I can’t remember the last time I did long slow cardio at the gym either.  It is nice to have abs without the hours of slow cardio and watching every bite.  The KEY is to train at a super high intensity so that my metabolism is always on fire.

Is cardio important for abs?

Again, this depends. You have to get rid of the layer of fat for your abs to show. If you choose to do that through cardio it can be done but it is not necessary to log hours a day on the treadmill or spin bike.

Training with INTENSITY is more efficient and changes the body much quicker.  So if you are looking to make a change quickly, you need to UP THE INTENSITY. ecard abs

If you are competitive runner, triathlete, etc., what I am saying about cardio really doesn’t apply to you.  What I am talking about is all the people at the gym  leaning on the elliptical, walking on the treadmill, or slowly pedaling away on the exercise bike, all while reading or chatting on their cell phones for an hour or two a day.  That is NOT the intensity I am talking about.

That may bring the abs out of hiding a little while, but inevitably most people don’t have 1-2 hours a day to spend on the treadmill.  If you want to get a flat belly in no time, focus on sprinting, plyos, competitive swimming or running, or other activities along those lines.  I give those a thumbs up!

IF you have a C-section can you get abs back?

OF course. Now there is not a whole lot you can do to reverse the c-section, BUT you can dramatically change the appearance by developing the muscles in that area and losing overall body fat via your diet and training so the appearance will drastically change.

Can I get abs after having a baby?

YES. It may be harder, it may take a bit longer but YES, YOU CAN!

If you have loose skin what can you do?

Skin can be challenging, believe me, I know.  I have abs, but downward dog is just NOT a flattering exercise after having a baby. The skin is not as elastic as we age and pregnancy does seem to stretch/change the skin around the mid to lower stomach.  Even if the skin isn’t as tight as it used to be, you CAN still develop those muscles and you CAN lose overall body fat and that will drastically change the appearance of your stomach.

Do stretchmarks ever go away naturally? Or does there have to be a cosmetic procedure?

Most stretchmarks will fad over time. Unfortunately exercising and diet will not change appearance of stretch marks.  What you can do is make sure you drink plenty of water and keep the skin moisturized from the outside as well.

Mederma ointment can help as well, but just make sure you apply it several times per day.

What is the BEST exercise for Abs?

I am a big fan of PLANKS. Here is the reason: they are GREAT for your lower back (when done with correct form) and they are AMAZING for CORE development. Planks are challenging to do, and there are lots of ways to progress the exercise and make it harder.

Doing planks gives you a stronger CORE which will improve your functional training with EVERY thing you do. They are also challenging, require a lot of energy and you DO burn calories doing planks as it is a full body exercise. So plank away!  Work up to 2 minutes and then start progressing the exercise.  Start by lifting 1-arm at a time.  Then 1-arm and the opposite leg.  Anything to make you unstable or that requires more balance is a GOOD thing.  If you can hold a plank for a long time you are on the right track!

Doesn’t eating fat make you fat? Why do you suggest fat on your programs?

Listen up, eating fat does NOT make you fat. Diets suggesting fat free eating are based on old research and it has been dis-proven.  Obesity rates have gone through the roof since the low fat diet became popular for so many years.  SUGAR, PROCESSED FOODS, and ARTIFICIAL FAKE FOODS are a primary cause of obesity and many health problems. Eating fat does NOT make you fat. Lack of activity and eating unhealthy processed foods do :)

Is there a supplement or pill that targets belly fat.

UMMMM NO! I call BS on the ads that say their “magic pill” melts belly fat.  Hard work, intensity, and proper nutrition are the ONLY “magic pills” that really work!

What is the quickest way to lose weight and get a flat belly?

The ONLY way to lose belly fat and KEEP it off is to do it the healthy way. You have to work at it and BE CONSISTENT! 

I can tell you that switching from a processed food diet to a clean and natural one like the meal plans I suggest will help you lose about 5 lbs week one and 2 lbs each week to follow. The reason you lose about 5 lbs week one is because you lose excess water and bloat in ADDITION to body fat.  By making that your LIFESTYLE, you should lose about 2 lbs of fat each week to follow until you hit your healthy weight.  Doing it properly means that you will experience realistic and long lasting RESULTS! 

There are a few exceptions to this rule. If you have a LOT to lose, and you are currently inactive and your diet is poor then you typically CAN lose weight a bit faster.  Along those same lines, if you only have 10 pounds to lose, you won’t lose 5lbs the first week.

How do I get rid of the “pooch”?

Usually the pooch is from one of a few things.

1. It can be overall body fat- that needs to be lost through intensity in training and diet
2. It could be BLOAT from an allergen. Keep a log to see if it is more distended due to certain foods like dairy or wheat.
3. It could be an anterior pelvic tilt which is common with females. That makes it LOOK like you have a pooch but can actually be a lower back issue
4. It could be extra skin.. that is less likely and usually only the case after losing a lot of weight.

So, figure out first which one of those things is the cause and then address it from there.

So there you have it!  I hope this helps give you some quality information so now you can go get that flat belly that you have always wanted!

Excuses or Solutions…YOU Decide!

Consistency pays off

1150I am phenomenally ecstatic about the questions, message, comments and likes I’m getting about my so far so good results!

The question I keep getting asked over and over is “How long did that take?” So I wanted to give you a visual with a timeline. I wish I was more studious about wearing the same outfit, same time of day, same position but whaddya’ gonna do??

The next big questions is “HOW did I do it?”

Well, I’m not a machine. I’m not perfect. And I failed my diet and exercise regularly. But what I did do was ALWAYS START AGAIN!

CONSISTENCY trumps EVERYTHING!

And you are only in a competition with yourself!

I am still a carb-loving, wine-drinking gal. But I temper those with a diet that is right in line 80% of the time, drinking Shakeology every day to help me do that, and working out AT LEAST 4 times per week.

I take various supplements and vitamins for performance and recovery. If you’d like to know more about that head over to www.MommaTFitness.com. And leave me a comment if you need help determining what you need to get started.

As my buddy Carl Daikeler would say, “Let’s do this.”

Why should YOU being doing MAX Interval Training!!??

ImageFirst things first.

What is Interval Training?

Interval Training enables participants to improve their fitness performance by high-intensity work efforts (drills) with periods of recovery.

In MAX Interval Training, like INSANITY, instead of working out moderately with short bursts of intensity, INSANITY features longer periods of high-intensity exercise punctuated with short periods of rest. Unique to INSANITY using explosive cardio and plyometric drills and nonstop intervals of cardiovascular strength and power for the ultimate conditioning program.

What are the benefits of MAX Interval Training?

  • Adaptation Response – Your body begins to adapt to the changes during exercise. Because of the varied stress from interval training, your body starts producing more capillaries. The increase allows more blood to flow through muscles and parts of your body with less effort. This means you develop the capacity to work harder for longer and recover faster.
  • Cross-Training Benefits – By exercising your muscles in a workout like INSANITY, you’ll put them through a series of tests, which cause them to build up strength and firmness, rendering them less prone to injury.
  • Calorie Burning – According to recent studies more are calories burned in high-intensity, shorter-duration intervals than steady training.
  • Efficiency – Research shows you can achieve more progress in a mere 15 minutes of MAX Interval Training than jogging on a treadmill for an hour.
  • Healthier Heart
  • Lose Weight, Not Muscle – MAX Interval Training workouts, like INSANITY, allow you to preserve hard-earned muscles while ensuring most of the weight loss comes from fat store.
  • Increased Metabolism – MAX Interval Training stimulates production of human growth hormone (HGH) by up to 450% during the 24 hours after you finish your workout. This is even more significant because HGH is not only responsible for increased caloric burn, but also slows down the aging process, making you younger both inside and out.
  • Burning More Fat During and After Class – Not only to you burn more calories during MAX Interval Training workouts, but the effect of all that intense exertion kicks your body’s repair cycle into hyperdrive. That means you can burn more fat and calories in the 24 hours AFTER a MAX Interval Training workout.

Insanity can be modified for all ages and fitness levels! It’s fun and challenging! If you want to switch up your training! INSANITY is where you want to go!!

Working from home + Helping others = Truly blessed beyond measure

INCREDIBLE!!! If you would have told me in January that I would be in the list of the Top 500 BEACHBODY COACHES out of 130,000 COACHES…I would have told you that you might need medication!

It is so amazing that the work I do helping others is changing my own life, my path, my dreams, what I want, and who I want to become.

I’ll admit, I’ve had doubts. I’ve stopped and started. Life gets in the way. I sometimes take for granted the money I see adding up from residual sales and think I have so far to go to really “make it.”

But the reality is I work with a company that has my best interest at heart. I have the luxury of working with those I love dearly like Jeri Bagdons Sousa, Jayme Jones, Carrie Glenn, Pamela Blythe, Tom Sorenson, and Kristi L. Curtis. The focus of Beachbody is health and wellness oriented. They put all the science and research behind us to really offer something that will increase and improve your life span. And, I’m realizing… your bank account. Carl Daikeler & Jon Congdon were amazingly gracious when I met them in Las Vegas this year and set me on a path of total wholehearted belief in Beachbody and Ending the Trend of obesity!

problems v dreams

We have all been trained and lied to for years. There is no “golden years” when you bust your butt for 40-50 of them only to realize you still may have a passport you’ve never used, no legacy to leave your children, or dreams you’ve never reached.

I realized today I need to stop focusing so hard on what I haven’t done within this company to really enjoy what I HAVE DONE! My heart is so full in the lives I’ve seen changed. And today as I read my Elite Status report I was in shock and awe of how truly blessed I really am.

I started this with the intent of completing Insanity and getting my Shakeology paid for. Truth is… I did that within the first 60 days.
