Choose Hope

✨When the world says you can't, Jesus says YOU CAN.
I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me ✨

Be the Good

Be the good. Be the change. Be positive. Be uplifting. Be still. Be yourself. Be brave.

I refuse to believe this world has more bad than good. So when I can't find the goodness, I'll be the goodness. And if everyone did this, instead of conforming and participating in rotten behavior, we would see good people EVERYWHERE.

Quick Workout Circuit

Okay y'all! Here's a quickie! 5 moves, first 4 moves are 30 seconds, then a side plank hold for 30 seconds on each side! Then try to get a full minute out of the 6th move, but it's difficult so just do what you can!

Set a stopwatch on your phone! Let me know what you think 😍

Lemon Chicken with Creamy Spinach

Recipe: Lemon Chicken with Creamy Spinach

Coat chicken breasts in 1-2 tablespoons of chili powder, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. You want it evenly coated.
Add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil to a skillet, brown the chicken on both sides. Remove chicken and set aside. Add 3 gloves of garlic, 2 teaspoons butter (optional) 1/2 cup of half and half, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon wheat flour, juice of one lemon, 2 teaspoons dried thyme, simmer for a few minutes, then add 2-3 cups of baby spinach, simmer for 1 minute and coat all the spinach in sauce. Add chicken back to the skillet and cook in the oven on 400 for 25 minutes.

Keep Pace or Keep Peace

Keep Pace - compare yourself with others. Try to keep up with the Jones's

Keep Peace - compare yourself with no one and just be you!

It's so easy to get stuck in a rut of comparison. One person is doing better in business than you are, doing better at fitness, losing that baby weight in a snap, their marriage might look better, her children eat vegetables like your children eat cookies, you can't run a mile, your job stinks, you can't cook like she does, your mom bun looks like you rolled outta bed, hers looks like she's on the red carpet! You know what I mean? You just feel inadequate... because you're glancing over your shoulder at someone else.

Don't do that to yourself. Don't keep pace with anyone, instead, do your thing! Embrace your journey because it's special and in your own time.

2 Corinthians 10:12 When they measure themselves with one another and compare themselves with one another, they are without understanding.

Why not you

Omgosh I LOVE this quote posted by a gal in my fitness group!

We have a group of almost 30 ladies, all committed to having a healthy & balanced holiday season! Goals are flying left and right! Lose weight, NOT gain weight during the holidays (for real, who doesn't agree?!) build muscle, run a mile, etc! Their energy is infectious! So darn motivating!
This week, we're checking in with motivational quotes, checking in after we've done our work out, sharing encouragement, and we've all been sharing our meal prep tips and recipes. 🙌🏼
Want to be successful? Wonder why some people are and some people struggle? Biggest piece of advice-- Get accountability and surround yourself with people who are like-minded. ✨it's the SECRET SAUCE, and one of the biggest reasons I became a coach, to surround myself with people who would challenge me to be better, and that's exactly what I found. I became more positive and optimistic! Score!

You don't have the perfect scenario to start, and there will NEVER be a "right" time, you just have to start. It's a lifestyle, you'll still have an awesome holiday season, I'm certainly not giving the things I love most! And I don't have to, neither do you!
Cut out the negative, fill it with positive, and go for it! Be the woman you WANT to be. Just ask yourself "why not me?" There's not a good answer to that, am I right?!

Flashback Friday

6 months ago... 4 months ago... 1 week ago... now!

Yes, it's difficult to find the time, and the motivation. Yes, it's difficult to skip the comfort food and opt for a smarter choice, yep, working out on zero sleep sucks. But sitting around and WISHING things were different would be so much worse.

If you really crunch the numbers though, I workout about 2-3 hours a week. That's a drop in the bucket! I eat clean 80% of the time, that's totally doable!
I'm just so grateful to have the opportunity to focus on me as my JOB! And fortunate that I have tools that deliver these kind of results in such a short time. And so thankful for the support I get through challenge groups!

See what YOU can do with your body if you have the right tools and support.

What the what?!?! I was not expecting this! ONE WEEK ON CORE DE FORCE! One week. I'm using the core de force workout program, no equipment. I'm using the meal guide with the portion control containers, which I've modified for nursing. And I'm drinking Shakeology.

I almost let this program pass me by, I wasn't into it at all at first glance. I always look forward to the program released in the fall, but when I saw this one, I was bummed. Bumming hard! I wished that a different program, more my style, would be released. Thank the Lord I did the sneak peek!!!

Gosh I so wish I could share this with everyone I know who has a goal. I truly believe this program can work for ANY GOAL. I'll give you every tool you need plus all the support in the world!

Mom Guilt

Um, wow. Saw this verse and loving it!

Lately, I've been feeling it. Like ALL moms do. That nagging guilt that says "you're doing it all wrong!" And I've been trying to push forward and hide this weakness. Well, yippee, not needed! Today's mission: Confess weakness to God and be still, because He will use his infinite power to give me rest, clarity, and direction.
It's okay to be vulnerable. We don't have to be strong all the time, we're human. Right? And we've all got some struggle going on!

12 Days of Fitmas

🎄🎄 The countdown is ON! Join me in a free and private accountability group to Countdown to Christmas with Healthy Holiday choices, mini challenges, and simple at home workout circuits.

Starts Dec 12.

RSVP if you're in!

Missing in Action!

Gosh, new momming is hard! My son, gotta love his sweet face, does not sleep well. And I've had the most difficult time adjusting to my mom schedule, my workout schedule, and my work schedule! I'm always very active on my Facebook, so catch up with me there if you haven't seen a post in a while! I apologize, I cannot blog from my phone, and it seems that these days, I can only tackle my social media from a handheld device! Moms, you know the drill! Baby in one hand, work in the other, never two hands for work! But, how blessed am I that I can coordinate my work around my baby, instead of the other way around!

This is how we usually end up!
