SUNDAY MEAL PREPPING

If I’m being honest prepping all of my meals for the week isn’t a usual for me, but since nutrition is something I am focusing on improving in 2015 I figured why not start now???

Rather than setting resolutions I set goals and never give up achieving them. I am a thorough believer that if you fail to plan you plan to fail. Speaking from experience there’s no way I could’ve stuck to the workout programs I’ve completed without planning my support accountability groups. Likewise, I know consistent healthful nutrition is key to success body, mind and spirit. I’m on a Paleo kick avoiding wheat, gluten, dairy, processed foods, etc. because when I intuitively listen to my body (and a food sensitivity test I took) I know these foods are harder to digest and drain my energy.

This 2015 I’m focusing on balance! Portion control with the guidelines from the 21 Day Fix is how I’m doing it. Want to join me? fill out the contact me form or reach out to me via email, fb, or Instagram. I would love for more like-minded people to join my support groups so we can hold one another accountable.

Back to meal prepping… I questioned myself while cooking why it is I’ve never commuted the fully prepping out my weeks and I realized it’s because most prepped meals I see people posting don’t excite me… At all. Lol. Eat your baked chicke with lemon juice all you want but this girl needs some spice and variety in her life. So that’s exactly what I did, with simplistic recipes too. /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/260/57533696/files/2014/12/img_2638.jpgFrom left to right: Tuna with Greek yogurt, eggs, peppers and onion loaded with paprika, black pepper and crushed red pepper. Overnight oats with banana, cinnamon and pumpkin spice. Measured, washed and chopped romaine lettuce, grapes and spinach. “Fried” rice with egg whites, chicken, peas, cauliflower, broccoli, garlic and Brags Liquid Aminos. Lastly sautéed garlic mushrooms! Not pictured are measured Bison patties spiced and ready for grilling. Delicious right? I will alternate between the bison with mushrooms and romaine with the fried rice for dinner. I will on occasion have a glass of wine or a piece of dark chocolate and adjust my intake accordingly. Wanna know what else? There’s ZEROS guess work with any of this. I’m simply following the portion control containers by Autumn Calabrese’s 21 Day Fix. I will also continue my Insanity Max 30 journey and my regular yoga practice. I’m excited to enjoy my meals this week, lean out the next couple months and cook up a storm of new things next week. Stay tuned…

My Life as a Beachbody Coach

Before I dive into all about myself as a bb coach, let me answer a much more broad and commonly asked question.

Q: What does a Beachbody Coach Do?

A: Beachbody Coaches share with others products they are using themselves that they truly believe in and know get results from their own personal experience. They also provide support, accountability, and motivation to their customers and help them get the best results possible.

What Does A Beachbody Coach Do?

Above is the short version. If you’d like a longer version and a more in depth explanation directly in relation to my career as a bb coach, keep on reading!

So What Do I do as a Beachbody Coach?

Being a Beachbody Coach goes beyond my career. It’s a lifestyle I live and breathe each and every day.  On top of being a coach, I’m also a yoga and meditation teacher striving to provide all-around lifestyle wellness. My ‘job’ is so personal to me. I think it’s because out of all things Beachbody provided myself as a customer (before I became a coach) the accountability group I was in thanks to MY coach is what truly played the biggest role in my success. Having so much support each and every day while being surrounded with like-minded people kept me on track with my goals. My dream of being healthier and fitter than ever didn’t just fizzle out like it has many many times before through efforts of other workout/diet regimens I tried on my own numerous times. Being a part of a team with this company is unique and nothing short of inspiring.

If you’re wondering what my life’s like now as a coach, why I became a coach and where I see my life going I highly suggest watching the video below:

If you have more questions, don’t hesitate to send me an email or ask a question below, I’d love to hear from anyone with feedback regarding beachbody or joining an accountability group.

SHARE YOUR STORY

To build authentic relationships you must share where you came from, what you’re doing and where you’re going.Coaching Tip Tuesday1

I think it’s so important as an entrepreneur, yoga teacher, FFAthlete and beachbody coach to share with my clients, students, and teammates (AKA MY FRIENDS). If you’re thinking of becoming a coach or joining my team I encourage you to share your story. Here’s a tidbit of my own I felt called to write about today:unnamed-1

Feeling like myself again: healthy, energized, HAPPY, silly and full of laughter. I had a rough 2014 full of sadness, anxiety, panic attacks and not wanting to leave my bed. I haven’t shared this with many people because I worried about others perception of myself. I realized how others see you doesn’t matter if you’re miserable!! I decided to push excuses to the side and live the life of my wildest dreams. I’m stepping into my true self by following my true passion of helping others. Believe me  when I say you can live the life you’ve always wanted because if you decide & commit you will succeed. I truly believe living your dream-life begins with a strong foundation of good health. If this resonates with you and you would like more info on how you can get involved in my wellness team to become the best version of yourself be sure to leave your email or shoot me a msg via Facebook. Why Wait for 2015?

Blessings,
