Team Retreat Forever FIT and the Dream Team United

I am catching up on life (remodeling a kitchen and office at once really puts you in a tizzy lol) and wanted to share our amazing weekend that our top leaders went on this past week!!!

As a fitness coach, my goal is to not only keep myself accountable for my own fitness journey, but also help others along the way!! As I have been able to help others, we have also found that growing a team of other like-minded go getters has really helped us with freedom for our families and financially… and since my team has made so many sacrifices and worked so hard to get to where they are today, this retreat was a way to congratulate them, but also allow them to enjoy a little vacation while spending some QT together!!

One thing that was extra special to me this trip was that my husband Brent was able to join me on this trip!! This was his very first Beachbody event that he attended… now it was not planned by corporate so he didn’t see the huge training and extras that go with those events, but this was a perfect first that he watched me host, so that made it so special!

Deidra Mangus, Dream Team United, Forever Fit, health and fitness coach, pregnancy fitness, healthy pregnancy, weight loss journey, stay at home mom, healthy mom goals, fitness motivation, online fitness coach PA, Elite Beachbody coach, successful Beachbody coach PA, Beachbody coach UK, pregnant fitness coach, healthy lifestyle  The only way he was able to go with me was if he was my assistant and helped with cooking all the meals for 25 women and helped keep the place clean! I would say him and our other male friend Jessie who came to do the same did an amazing job!!! I am so blessed that Brent was able to not worry about taking off work to be here with me!

I must say, I have to give him so much credit because there are not many husbands or guys out there who are willing to be in a houseful of 25 women to do what they did and not one time complained about ANYTHING!! Not even me being slightly needy and pregnant at the same time!!

This was also our very first big trip together and flying together! If you don’t know our story, we did things pretty quick.. Met, got engaged in 4 months, married in 6, pregnant in 7! And never had the opportunity to have a honeymoon because our schedules with work and kids just didn’t match!

So back to the trip!!! It felt so good to be able to grab a 30 person house to have us all stay together and get to know each other more and spend time together!! We came from all over the US: PA, WV, CA, MI, and

more!! We may not see each other as often as we want, but when we come together again, it feels like we have known each other forever and we pick up right where we left off!

Our theme for our retreat was “EMPOWER”- Our mission to to EMPOWER others to shoot for the stars, to overcome fear and do what makes them happy and what is important to them! So many people hold back because of fear, but we are all for taking leaps into the unknown, because as we did it ourselves, we found a beautiful world on the other side of fear and doubt!!

As I took this trip at 28 weeks pregnant, I did not know what I was going to get myself into with swelling and being in sunny Florida with 90 degree weather… yea, I have no clue how pregnant mommas do it lol!! I was SOOO swollen every day!!! But I didn’t let it get to me, I just kept on moving!! Yoga, MMA workouts, we did it all.. and rocked it!

Im proud to say this was my yoga buddy and I working out on our last day before we travel back home!! #committed #goals

I guess since we are fitness coaches, we can tap for a minute about nutrition! We had planned healthy meals for each breakfast, lunch, and dinner while in Florida:

Buffalo chicken Sweet Potatoes

Anndddd then came evening time.. I swear if my friends didn’t love cookies and didn’t suggest ice cream sundae parties, I would NOT have fallen off lol!! I can blame them right?? or blame it on the pregnancy??

Yes, my ice cream sundae was eaten in my two piece at 28 weeks pregnant and my belly was my table! LOL

During our retreat, we did have some training to continue empowering our leaders! Even leaders and successful coaches are hungry for more knowledge and growth!! And then after 2 days of training, we did finish off with a day in Epcot for the 25th year anniversary and wine and food festival… hold the wine please.. I’ll just take a sample of all the food!!  Deidra Mangus, Dream Team United, Forever Fit, health and fitness coach, pregnancy fitness, healthy pregnancy, weight loss journey, stay at home mom, healthy mom goals, fitness motivation, online fitness coach PA, Elite Beachbody coach, successful Beachbody coach PA, Beachbody coach UK, pregnant fitness coach, healthy lifestyle

I loved taking my pregnancy lifestyle pictures because this truly is ME!!! I love having the ability to be me, work from home, in yoga pants or comfy cotton dress with my belly hanging out, and helping others around the US/Canada, and soon to be UK!! Thanks to social media, it allows me to reach and help so many more people than just those in my community!!

It is so crazy to know this is our lives!! We pick the hours we want to work, we travel just a couple times a year (if we want) to meet up, have fun, get more training, and create memories, but we are women of all sizes and ages working on ourselves and our own fitness journeys, and hoping to help others who can relate to us along the way!

I am so thankful God has placed this opportunity in my hands almost 5 years ago when I was working full time swing shifts as a nurse with a newborn and 1 year old, and just wanting a way to have more freedom and time with my boys!!

This opportunity has allowed me more than I ever imagined: New friendships that I can call my other family, more freedom and time with my boys, financial freedom to provide for my family, more confidence as a person and mother, and a healthy pregnancy that I never had before this journey started!!

I am looking for 20 new women who are wanting to change their life!! Who are driven and hungry for success and freedom!! You must be fun to work with, willing to share your fitness journey, and willing to sacrifice some time to help others along their own journey— No education needed… my training will be good enough to help you grow a successful business of your own from home!!

Please fill out the application below to be accepted into a part of the #1 team in the organization!! Please only fill out if you are not currently working with another Beachbody coach!

What’s Working and What is NOT with My Pregnancy Fitness Journey

I am just about 26 weeks pregnant, and my body is changing BIG time!! I want to do this blog post NOT just for pregnant mommas, but also want to help those who struggle with their weight/fitness journey all together!

Deidra Mangus, healthy pregnancy, healthy mom, home fitness workouts, elite beachbody coach, successful beachbody coach PA, beachbody coach UK, mommy and son fitness, drinking Shakeology while pregnant, healthy new mom, new mom weight loss, pregnancy fitness motivation, clean eating tips,  third trimester pregnancy

Being a mom, pregnant, and getting older are all reasons we can use when we fall off track with our fitness journey.. Can I get an AMEN?!?! I mean really, there are sooooo many things that get in the way of our goals and results.. we get too tired, busy, annoyed by results not coming fast enough, and the fact that others around you may look better, fitter, and prettier, DESPITE how hard you are working… we compare, get frustrated, and shut down.

It’s time to put those blinders on and focus on YOU, what you are capable of doing, and YOUR current situation! I use to try and be that mom who had it all together, and then when I see others rocking the gym with their babies, looking like they never had a baby even 6 weeks after baby comes…. ya know.. eating nothing but clean foods.. Sorry ladies and moms who got it together like that.. but that is JUST NOT ME!!!

I talk about my fitness journey on social media.. my followers KNOW I am a sucker for nachos, cheeseburgers, stuffed crust pizza, peanut butter, and cheese!!! I can’t hide and I won’t! I do love working out, but my home fitness workouts are my jam! The gym use to be, but for my lifestyle, but I love letting my boys sleep and get my workout done early, or even let them workout with me and watch what I do instead of gym babysitters.. not saying there is ANYTHING wrong with the other option.. this is simply MY choice and better option for ME and MY FAMILY!!! 🙂 So yea, my boys love jumping up in the mornings with me and get down before school and rock out some push ups!! I call it “teaching them early” and watching mommy be healthy so they can have a positive role model to hopefully take after and live a healthy lifestyle themselves and continue the tradition!

But let’s talk about what is NOT working with me on my fitness journey:

  1. Too many cheat meals… it’s so easy to let those temptations get in the way. We crave a burger, and then you take the fries too. Then you want to eat out and the appetizers sound so good. Before you know it, your 1 cheat meal per week turns into 3 and 4.  So yea, the 80/20 rule with nutrition is KEY!
  2. Lack of water intake…. did you our bodies are made up of 60% water? Our bodies NEED water to stay hydrated, use water as a cleanse to get rid of toxins in our body, and more! I hate to admit that I have not had my daily allowance that my body needs every day. I am getting better, but some days, I am lacking!

Let’s talk about what IS working on my fitness journey:

  1. Exercising! Even if I am not running every day or lifting weights every day, I am still doing SOMETHING: Stretching, lots of yoga, still jogging, and lifting also!  No matter what exercise I am doing, it is helping me get stronger in different ways! Deidra Mangus, healthy pregnancy, healthy mom, home fitness workouts, elite beachbody coach, successful beachbody coach PA, beachbody coach UK, mommy and son fitness, drinking Shakeology while pregnant, healthy new mom, new mom weight loss, pregnancy fitness motivation, clean eating tips,  third trimester pregnancy
  2. Nutrition… when I AM on track, I feel such a HUGE difference! I do drink my Shakeology daily,ecause it is one meal that gives me that great nutrition and superfoods! It’s easy, convenient, and yea, I will take it if it tastes like a milkshake! So, it definitely pays off to eat healthy!
  3. Giving myself positive affirmations. It may sound silly, but there are times when I feel like throwing in the towel and giving up. Being on your fitness journey is not easy! If it was, everyone would be walking around with an 8 pack! But when I do struggle and feel like quitting, I talk to myself, give myself positive words of encouragement and push myself! It is amazing what you can accomplish when you change your attitude from “I can’t” to “I can” and “I will”.

This journey of eating healthy and working out is NOT easy, but it is totally worth the results!! My goal is to not allow myself to be on a “diet” because diets are only temporary and do not last forever.. once you get off that diet, then what happens?? Majority of the time, you end up gaining it back, plus more! So I am turning this into a lifestyle! If I fall off, have too many cheats, lack exercise a couple days, I do not give up.. I simply get back on track and pick up where I left off!

I am opening up 10 spots to my next fitness support group for those who have health and fitness goals and are ready to commit to a lifestyle change! I will help you create healthy habits, learn how to eat healthy, along with meal planning, and find a workout program that fits your needs and level of fitness!

Please fill out the application below to reserve your spot! Spaces are limited!

*Spaces are only for those who are currently not working with a Beachbody coach and new customers!

Despite some setbacks with nutrition (mama is on the struggle bus)… I did eat clean for a good bit of the week, but I also had a few too many cheat meals..

My hubby made some yummy breakfast with toast, dippy egg, and avocado which is simple but healthy, and then sometimes I dug into too many carbs and peanut butter!!

For my workouts, I am doing the Shift Shop home fitness program with Chris Downing! Yes, my belly is getting in the way of some workouts, but I am still making it happen and being pretty successful at it! I love that this program incorporates cardio and weight training, so I am getting a little of both! My husband and I are on round 2, so the workouts are a little bit longer (35-45 min).

I also love to add my yoga in addition to my Shift Shop workouts… It is so good for the mind, body, and soul!! And I do love adding in some yoga poses with the hubs!! Poor guy is probably scared when I jump up and go for a landing!!! HAHA

Health and Fitness Transformation SHOUT OUT to Bonnie B.

As a health and wellness coach, my mission is to help others live a healthy and fulfilling life, and to feel GOOD in their own skin… love who they are, but in the healthiest way possible!! That is why I run monthly Challenge Groups to help people on a daily basis to create healthy habits, win small victories, and reach goals they never thought was possible!!

In my current challenge group, I have Bonnie B. who has done such an incredible job on her fitness journey!! She has been doing a variety of workout programs from All-Access Beachbody On Demand such as Shift Shop, Core De Force, and CIZE!

Not only is she doing 30 minute workouts in the comfort of her own home to get strong and tone, but she is also incorporating healthy eating and Shakeology into her regimen! Shakeology is one meal that she does not even have to think about, but is giving her the proper nutrition and superfoods her body needs that we do not get when we just shop at the grocery store!! High quality nutrients gives you high quality results!!

This journey is not about a diet, it’s about creating a lifestyle that you can live off of forever!! I am so super proud of this mom and friend for working so hard and being so consistent every day to push through those workouts, to eat healthy even when something is tempting her, and to show others what is possible!!
