When Life Gives You Lemons….

So you know the quote, “When life gives you lemons, you turn it into lemonade.” Well, I have a new quote that I am running with today!!! “When life gives you lemons, squeeze it, mix it with 6 ounces of distilled water and drink it twice a day.” -Jethro Kloss

This is about keeping up with your health and incorporating easy foods that can be used with many health benefits!! So lets talk LEMONS today since they are yellow and it’s so sunny today! 🙂

Lemons have so many health benefits and one thing I was surprised to hear is that it actually can:

  • Give you as much energy as coffee, so replacing your coffee in the morning will help you improve your energy in a healthier way!
  • It will also prevent you from aging (which coffee causes you to age).
  • Is full of potassium, which helps your heart health.
  • Act as a diuretic and help increase the rate of urination of the body.
  • Aids in digestion and helps flush our unwanted materials.
  • Clears skin. With the vitamin C in lemons, it will help decrease wrinkles and blemishes.

Once the lemons are freshly squeezed into the juicer, there you have it…. Lemon Ice-cubes!! Perfect to go in your water to give it some extra flavor!! Plus, the kids love it too!!

Asparagus and Ham Spaghetti Squash

I am so sorry I didn’t post all last week!! Getting married and having some other things going on took my mind off of my blog… but don’t worry, it won’t happen again!!

So I am excited for this new recipe, because it was made with the help of my HUSBAND!! He definitely knows how to get to my heart! He is helping me so much with taking care of our home, kids, and cooking meals and cleaning up!  I know you may be thinking this is what husbands are suppose to do, but keep in mind, I’ve been a single parent and use to doing it on my own! I can totally get use to this! <3

Last night, Brent made this meal for me, but I added just a couple ideas to make it our own!! I changed the spaghetti noodles for spaghetti squash, and added mushrooms too!

Getting FIT for Christmas and the New Year!!

Can you believe we are 12 days away from Christmas?? Which means we are getting closer to a New Year full of crazy new opportunities!!! I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty pumped about it!! This year has been crazy which life situations occurring that was not expecting, along changes that I had to accept and make some lifestyle changes!! I feel like many of us can vouch for having a crazy life and things have held us back from staying on track with our health and nutrition.

But guess what?! Let’s move forward NO MATTER WHAT and not let anything get in our way of our goals!! WHY?? Because at the end of the day, your health matters, your happiness matters, and how you feel about yourself matters and if you do not do anything about it, your going to be in the same situation you are in now! So time to make a change!!!!

This week, I am right on track with my nutrition… I am dialed in, meals prepped, meal plan ready, and ready to take another step closer to my goals!

Everywhere I go, I hear people talking about wanting to get fit, lose weight, build muscle, tone up, find healthier ways to eat and stay on track…. but I see so many that are not taking action!

I want to take a moment to say I was in that same position at one time.. I would complain about how I look and feel, but did NOTHING about it! I knew nothing would change if I didn’t change. So one day it hit me. I decided I am in control of my life, my health, my results, and more importantly, my happiness! The way I feel shows through to my kids, and I REFUSE to be that mom always complaining about how she looks in front of her kids… thats only setting those kids up for having a complex about their weight/looks and feeling insecure themselves.

So lets take charge of taking care of our bodies, our health, and our fitness, and take the HEALTH BET CHALLENGE!!

WHAT IS THE BEACHBODY HEALTH BET?

Beachbody is the organization I work with as a fitness coach. I have been a personal fitness coach now for 4 years and in the past was a personal trainer at a gym. I have found so much joy working with people on a daily basis and not having to only stick with people in the town I live in.. I get to help others all over the US and Canada!

So… the Health Bet Challenge was initiated by our CEO of Beachbody who is obsessed with changing lives!! So obsessed that he and the other Corporate guys decided to not only offer men and women a chance to get in shape (using home fitness programs based on your own level of fitness and preference of workout) and healthy eating, but also now giving a chance for whoever takes on this challenge and commit to a specific regimen to earn CASH prizes from our pot that will start at $2 Million!! That’s right… 2 Million is the MINIMUM that we are promising and will go up to $3 Million. The amount of money you will win will depend on how many people sign up and be consistent on their fitness journey!

HOW DO YOU QUALIFY FOR THE HEALTH BET CHALLENGE?

  • Each participant will be required to sign up with a Beachbody account and use a program of your choice (as your coach, I will help you find one that works best for you) and incorporate Shakeology, our superfood health drink, as 1 meal per day to give you the best nutrition!
  • Each participant will be required to join our Challenge Group Tracker App (free on your phone that I will help you set up as your coach). This will give you ability yo get daily support, motivation, fitness/nutrition tips, and a chance to WIN more PRIZES individually!
  • Each participant will be required to commit and log in at LEAST
    • 3 workouts per week
    • 5 Shakeology posts a week with a picture that you are drinking it
      • Each week runs Monday through Sunday at midnight
  • Each participant will be required by ME to keep track of their pictures and measurements (best way to track your progress along your journey) to help you stay motivated and accountable!

WHY USE THE CHALLENGE TRACKER APP?

What I love about this Tracker app is that you will get notifications to remind you to check in throughout the day.  You have a chance to surround yourselves around other like-minded people who have similar goals… What does this mean? This means that you will have more positive people around you, more motivation, more accountability with your fitness journey!

When you go in the APP, it is very easy to access and navigate! You have a spot to post your Shakeology, your workout, and you will see “COACH” posts so you know when I am posting as your mentor with your journey!

WHY TAKE THIS LEAP WITH YOUR FITNESS JOURNEY?

Ok, here’s the deal…. we know anyone can go to the gym and do a workout. We know anyone can eat healthy… But, how often do we stick with it when we do it on our own? Not everyone has $300 per month to spend on a personal trainer for 30 minute workout sessions 3 days a week. Not everyone has time to drive back and forth to the gym to workout when we are already tight with a busy schedule (you mamas and dads know what I mean). Not everyone can leave their kids at any given moment to go to the gym… not everyone has daycare available and we don’t want to drag our kids everywhere… lets face it, it gets tough with a tight schedule, naps and sleeping babies!

I am so excited to give you the opportunity to start your fitness journey… if you have started before and have not reached your goals or are not seeing the results you were hoping for, to finally change things up and reach those goals! Time to make 2017 YOUR YEAR!!!
