The craziest thing I hear so many times recently is “Go get a real job.” Or “Oh, that Beachbody scam she does can’t possibly be a career.” Those people who are saying this to me, or hoping I would hear it… I am happily going to educate you on what I do so no one is confused and making these misconceptions about my career as a work from home mom and fitness coach.
4 years ago before starting this whole crazy Beachbody Coach gig, I was a full time ER Nurse. I absolutely loved what I did as a nurse, but 2 years ago, I quit nursing to stay home with my boys and work from home while still being able to fulfill my passion for helping others. But instead of helping people in the hospital, I was then helping people stay out of the hospital and preventing them from acute and chronic illness such as Diabetes (one of the worst diseases killing millions of people), cancer, obesity, heart disease, and more.
Since working from home and running my own fitness business, I have gained so much from life, than many with “real jobs” never get a chance to even experience… maybe thats why they don’t call what I do a real job??
Possible reasons why I am getting questioned about what I do:
I sell products off a website
I build a team which helps my long term income and stability
I don’t clock in and out at a building with a name on it
I don’t wear a uniform to work or have certain attire that is required daily
I don’t have a boss to tell me what to do
I run my business through social media and talk to people all over the US and Canada (and soon to be international)
I didn’t have to go to college for this education or have a certain experience/training before starting
Some of my trainings and trips I attend as a coach are at resorts, vacation spots, and I’m having a blast doing it
These reasons are absolutely reasons to question what I do! We are all entitled to our own opinion and have the right to be skeptical and curious!!! Which is WHY I am going to answer ALL these concerns!
I do sell products off a site! I sell products that have changed MY life and my family’s and friends! They were my guinea pigs first along with myself to see if these products actually worked! What I have found is answers to many people’s questions and complaints about a healthy lifestyle! I found workouts with real certified trainers like the 21 Day Fix, Hammer and Chisel, and Core De Force, that help you get through a real workout. In these programs, you get nutrition plans with recipes to help you eat healthy for you and your family! You also get to calculate your caloric intake and figure out what you should be eating each day according to YOU and your lifestyle and goals. Oh, and that Shakeology stuff…. yes, thats real too! I have not found ANY other meal replacement shake that gives me the energy, helps my digestion and bloating, and gives me the nutrients and superfoods that Shakeology does. This isn’t for everyone either, this is for people who go for quality for their health and who want to live a healthy lifestyle the right way… working hard, exercising, healthy eating, and getting support, motivation, health and fitness tips from me as their coach! NO wraps, diet pills, patches, nothing temporary that could possibly be called a scam or bad products that don’t work! The only way it doesn’t work is if you stop trying! So I do sell products that are life changing, and I also sell health and happiness!
I build a team which helps my long-term income. No, this is NOT a pyramid scheme and I do NOT make money from the people below me… If I am not working, people who signed up after me can pass me up and make more income than myself! How this does work though, is when you find other like-minded people who are ready to hustle and change lives, you are all building a team and helping others which builds volume, which leads to long term income that doesn’t disappear just because you don’t “sell” something that day or week. As I build a team, I do less “selling” and more training to help my coaches to become successful themselves in running challenge groups to help people along their fitness journey! I was able to triple my nursing salary when I actually quit nursing to work full time as a Beachbody coach, and I don’t know about you, but income is income and either way, that is food on my kids table and a roof over their head! I, just like others with a real job have been able to pay off debt, put money away for my children, take my kids on vacations, and have holidays for them without stressing about what is in my bank account… and not everyone with a real job can even say they can do that… I know working as a nurse, I still struggled to get debt paid off and have extra set aside.
I don’t clock in and out of a building with a name or title on it. No, I don’t work at ____ Hospital anymore… I wake up and while my boys are still sleeping, I go downstairs sometimes in my Pj’s and answer a few messages. Then my boys wake up and I get them ready for school and my youngest Wes hangs out with me during the day and we work together, with a little play time in between! I also can take breaks when I need to so I can attend my kids events and sports which has been such a blessing! I do not have a time clock to where I get paid by the hour. I make up my own hours according to what is best for me and my family, and I can work wherever I feel like because my business is worked online! I don’t have to leave my kids.. they watch me help people via computer, phone, and if they are close, my challengers and coaches come over and we workout together, meal prep together, and have fun! I know that doesn’t even seem like a real job… it seems like a dream right?! Well, the beauty of your life is YOU get to pick what you do and where you work! You picked your life and career, and I will be in charge of mine!
I don’t wear a uniform to work. Nope, I mostly wear workout clothes, but sometimes I work in my Pj’s! If I’m on a trip, I even wear a fancy outfit, or a bathing suit! I think my favorite part is the yoga pants though! They are pretty comfy and you can find really cool ones with cute designs!!
I don’t have a boss telling me what to do. Nope.. I am MY OWN BOSS. I answer to myself. I don’t have someone I have to report to for an evaluation for a bonus or raise.. I simply help more people and give myself my own raise! Sounds pretty cool, right?!
I run my business through social media. This might really get people. Like how can you run a real business using social media?!?! Well, it’s something called network marketing and it’s as real as it gets! You have the ability to not be stuck to help people or work with people only in the area you live! You have the ability to help people from all over, make friends from all over, and it’s a pretty wonderful thing! When you limit yourself to a local area, your limiting your success… this is an opportunity for you to change so many lives in so many different locations!! This is also how I share my journey and story so I can find other like-minded moms, military families, and fitness lovers who want to empower other women… because that is my true goal in life!! To empower women and help them see they can be independent, strong, and successful no matter what trials and tribulations they have encountered in their lives!
I didn’t have to go to college or have an education to get my fitness coaching job. Sure didn’t, and that may come off crazy, but it’s not about how much you know, its about how hard your willing to work, how passionate you are about what you do, and how much your willing to learn and experience along the way! As a successful coach, I have my own trainings to help my team grow a successful home business themselves! I teach my team how to brand themselves, how to communicate with potential challengers and teammates, and learning about what Beach body is and what we stand for!
I travel and my trainings are at resorts, vacations spots, and I have fun doing it! The problem with society is we are put in a place that we are suppose to think of a job is being something you hate going to… something you dread… all you who clock in on Mondays who work your 9-5 or swing shifts.. you dread Mondays and the start of another week…. I get it, I’ve been there and done that! But is that really how we should live?? I don’t live in a fantasy world, I live in a world that you should be happy and feel complete with what you do every day, because you spend a lot of your life doing that and you only live once and you better live it to the fullest! So yes, I have fun working, traveling, and spending quality time with my friends that I choose to work with… because I have that ability!
I have the ability to choose this as my career, just as you have the ability to choose your career and your happiness! I hope this whole Beachbody coaching gig makes a little more sense to you now. It’s a real job that can give you real freedom with your family and loved ones, real happiness, and real success!
Again, its not for everyone! Its for people who love to be healthy and want to share their journey along the way, want to make friends and surround themselves around other positive and uplifting people (because we are pretty positive… even in the darkest times we find faith, hope, and a good future), and aren’t afraid to work in yoga pants at any hours of the day you want!
YOU CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY!

*Team Beachbody® does not guarantee any level of success or income from the Team Beachbody Coach Opportunity. Each Coach’s income depends on his or her own efforts, diligence, and skill. See our Statement of Independent Coach Earnings for the most recent information on the actual incomes of all our Coaches.
As a former ER nurse and mom of 2 boys, I have a true passion for helping people and changing lives, but also know what its like to be crazy busy!! My career changed almost 4 years ago when I decided to start my fitness journey with Beachbody and complete my first home fitness program Insanity, along with incorporating Shakeology into my regimen to help me with my nutrition. It changed my life!! It changed my life so much I wanted to make fitness and Beachbody my career! I knew I could share my story and help others with similar goals and life situations and busy moms and nurses and make a difference AND be able to be successful as I work from home and be with my boys!
As an 3 X Elite Coach (top 0.05 % of the entire organization), I was able to earn income to replace my nursing salary while working around 7-10 hours a week within my first 1.5 years of coaching. Within 3 years, I completely retired from my ER nursing career and made Beachbody my full time career as was able to build a 6 figure income, tripling my full time nursing salary. This is not meant to boast, but I want to show you how I have been able to gain freedom of time for my family, while financially being able to provide for them as well!
Not only have I gained freedom with Beachbody coaching as my career (starting working less than part time hours), I have also had a great transformation, being able to compete as a Figure Competitor, I also have been able to travel around the US, and gain the BEST friendships ever!! Not kidding you, this is more than a team.. this is my 2nd family!!!
It has been so rewarding to now be able to really wake up every day excited to get to work, excited to help motivate others and help people around the US and Canada with their health and fitness journey (onlineusing social media). Whats great about what I do is I didn’t have ANY experience with social media when I first started! I had a Facebook account and thats it!
Another rewarding part of my career is the ability to be home with my boys Chase (5) and Weston (4) and watch them grow! As a nurse, I was missing so much with them.. Now, I watch my oldest get on and off the bus every day, I take Weston to pre-school 3 hours, 3 days a week so he can interact with others and swim, and Im able to watch event and sports that they have, along with attending school events! The cool part is, I don’t have to request or take off work!! I make my own business hours at home and arrange it around my family!
I am hosting a 3 day Sneak Peek into Beachbody Coaching and would LOVE to show you exactly what I do and what our team is about!
I am looking for more passionate moms, who want the ability to work from home and make an extra income to provide more freedom for their family, but also has a passion for fitness!! You do NOT have to be at your goal weight!! I started just at the beginning of my fitness journey, but the great thing is, this fitness business will help so much with your accountability and as we share our stories, it will only inspire more people who want to change their life as well!!
My next New Coach Training will start Nov 7th where I will work 1:1 and mentor you to grow your own successful home fitness business!
Please fill out the application below for a spot in my Sneak Peek to see if this is something that will fit you and your lifestyle!
Oh my goodness was this business trip absolutely amazing!! I cannot be more blessed to have joined such an amazing company just 2.5 years ago and took a huge leap of faith into the unknown as a mother, wife, and nurse. As you will see through this post and recap of this event we just had, Beachbody totally spoils us and we have THE best team EVER!!
As we took our road trip down Tuesday, we had LOTS of fun.. stopping at stops and doing our little dance for the new upcoming release CIZE just to make our trip more memorable!
Getting started trying new foods!! Simply amazing! Quail all the way!
Love being able to relax and bond with my team before the big event starts!!
WED- Elite DAY!
Doing a little work in the morning before our day starts!! Loving be able to work from home… or anywhere for that matter!!
Starting the day with E&E to get our energy going… YUP! Every day thing! And of course and awesome breakfast for us!!
YIKES!!! HELP me!!
First thing was my first rehearsal… getting ready for the BIG day for me presenting for our Recipe to Success Training for the #1 team in the Company!
Fish Tacos for the first time!! Why did I wait so long to try these?!?!
Ok, this was NOT suppose to happen! We rented a car to come down, and of course…. its in a parking garage and still manages to get booted and ticketed?? Why is Nashville not like Pittsburgh and you pay when you leave?? They totally did not make it clear when you pay.. well at least it was hidden when we pulled in at midnight to park!! 🙁
So why NOT have a photo shoot while we waited for the boot to come off??!! HAHA love the back ground and looks of the ally!!
Before our Elite party, we had rehearsal to go on stage, and it was at the LP field where the Titans play!! Yes… let me just say… AMAZING!!
Then, I met up with my Elite Date!!! One of my amazing coaches who has rocked her business from day 1, Maegan Blinka!! Follow this momma on FB!!
A little Elite shopping before the party?? Ok a lot of shopping! INTERVENTION NEEDED!!

More Elite gifts?!! AHH love my company!
As I come back for the evening, I practiced my presentation and was STRESSING OUT!! BUT, my team was so supportive of me and made me laugh, made me do my presentation in front of them, and helped me so much! Then we put that selfie stick to use!! 😉
Nothing sums up our team more!! Love these girls!!
THURSDAY- DREAM TEAM “Recipe For Success Presentation” and Opening Day!!
One opportunity I was given was to speak at our Summit event with the #1 team in the company and give my recipe for how I got to where I am in my business today… I presented in front of 1500 people almost and that may be the scariest thing I have EVER done!! BUT… It was one of the most awesome things I have done considering my WORST fear is Public Speaking!
The presenters for the recipe for success! These girls are just amazing!! Some of the best people I can ever surround myself around! Thankful to have them in my life!! PS… the training was a SUCCESS for everyone!!
TEAM PIC!!! Had an awesome lunch with this team and got to know them… some for the very first time!! What an amazing experience!
Nothing like leaving the presentation to find ANOTHER boot on our rental car!! GAHH!! Seriously?? My time was up WHILE I was speaking at my event!
Im over the boots and fines!! Its much easier to take an UBER!
After 2 boots, this car went back to Enterprise and this momma got herself some plane tickets!!
No more stress!!
Opening Ceremony at LP Field!
This is just amazing!!
Another date for Elite with Sarah! Love bringing my coaches down for a sneak peek for them for next year! 🙂
Val and I!
One of my mentors Cim Carver from Corporate at Beachbody and one of my success partners Katy Ursta! These 2 have been such a huge part of my growth in my business!
Nice action shot! Seriously, I always have my mouth open loud… I guess that sums me up! #EXTROVERT!
Our CEO—> Thats how we roll!
Nothing better than seeing my own coaches up on that stage for recognition!! 🙂
Our upcoming new release in December!! OHHHH YES!!!!!!
Loved meeting some of our coaches from the south!!! Such amazing people!!
Having a little fun with Ashley, Erin, and Alisha!
Morning workout of course to start—> with our E&E! Pre workout drink to get us going.. exactly what we needed!!
I loved being able to take coaches with me for Elite seating in front for our general sessions!! Ashley is one of my coaches from St. Louis who I FINALLY met for the first time and we had some bonding time!!
Pose general session with the team!!
With some of my favorite people!!! I love that we don’t have to be on the same team to build such great friendships!!
This is my Diamond Coach Erin who obviously came with me to Summit, but brought her transformation pic to have Shaun T sign for her!!! He is SOOO proud!!!!! 75 lbs gone forever!!
I was so excited to meet my coaches Farrah and Bryan from Mississippi!! They are maybe the sweetest couple Ive ever met!!!
Let the date night begin!! Friday night, Date with Ashley for Success Club party!
Some of Forever FIT with Michael Neimand!
Saturday Morning workout- SUPER WORKOUT! We literally closed down Broadway and had 25,000 coaches doing a workout with the trainers Tony Horton, Sagi, Chalene Johnson, Autumn Calabrese, and Shaun T!

Love our team!! We just make everything fun.. even a hardcore workout!! 🙂
Alisha Wright and I! Getting ready to workout!!

Saturday was announcing Top coach of the Year (my cuz) Melanie Mitro, the Beachbody Challenge Winners, & I also got to go on stage for Elite (top 1% of the Beachbody Organization)! Yup… pretty amazing huh?!

Gangsta!! Sporting our 21 Day Fix, CIZE, & Body Beast hats!! YEA BUDDY!
Ran into a friend from high school who is also a coach that went to Summit! Pretty cool how people come back into your life after how many years!!
All in all, this trip was absolutely INCREDIBLE!! I cannot be thankful enough to have this opportunity placed in front of me right at the perfect timing in my life.. When I had my kids, and wanted to DREAM BIG, and build a life by design! Now that I took that leap of faith, I am creating my own destiny… I am my own BOSS, I make my own hours, and make a difference in peoples lives! I truly believe we were all made for something BIG in life!
If you have a Dream…. GO for it! Just take that leap of faith because you never know what amazing things will come out of it.. for you physically and financially!

As I am sitting outside WORKING at home with my kids, I am feeling so blessed that this amazing opportunity was given to me just 2.5 years ago. But many people think, “I could never do something like that..” Well, Guess what?! I FELT THE SAME WAY!!
Now I want to SHARE with you how I got to this position in my life as a Home Fitness Coach!
As a nurse, I was working swing shifts, holidays, with 2 kids, ages 1 year and 6 weeks old. I began my own fitness journey and loved how my body was changing. I knew there was opportunity to create a career with fitness, but I thought, WHY would I throw away my 4 year Bachelors degree in Nursing to make fitness as a career?? Is that even a career?? That is exactly what I thought!
Then I realized that as I was sharing my journey with others about how my home fitness programs through BEACHBODY and SHAKEOLOGYhas changed my life! It wasn’t just the weight lost, but my increase in energy, decrease in cravings, decrease in bloating, improvements with my digestive system, and being able to create healthy habits that my children can see and one day, follow in my footsteps!
I felt it was only right to help others feel this same way! As I shared this opportunity with others who were trying to find themselves through diets, diet pills, starvation, and surgeries, I realized I was changing lives 1 by 1! As I was helping others, I didn’t realize that I was actually bringing in income to support my family and to help pay the bills!! My goal was to replace what we pay in groceries every month.. then I continued helping others, and it became an income to pay for groceries AND daycare!
Fitness became a PASSION to me… I honestly can not say 1 negative thing about putting your and your family’s health FIRST!
Its about being the best version of YOU and inspiring others around you!
*2.5 Years later, with consistency and continued passion for what I do, I retired as a nurse and pursued my passion as my full-time Career!
I will say, I did not start full time! I put in 30 minutes here and there, shared what I am doing to everyone I knew, invited others to join me on my journey, and most importantly, did NOT give up because others didn’t approve, or were annoyed by what I shared! For those who made comments, UN-FRIENDED me (yes even people who were “supposedly my best friends”) or talked behind my back, I knew those people were NOT true friends… So WHY would I give up on something to please them and not myself?? Do they really have an impact on my life if they don’t support me? Absolutely NOT! I knew I would inspire more than I would bother! And everyone knows, that “unfriend” button is right at the top!
My success for helping others is way more important than what others think of me and I was NOT that person at one time.. I always cared what people thought of me.. that is until the reward of not caring came along! So, yes, we will have struggles, obstacles, just like ANYTHING else in life, but I promise, that reward is so much greater!!
Now I am staying home with my kids after only 2.5 years of dedicating myself to my fitness career part-time… I can now live life by design! I control me, my business, my hours, my vacations, my office, my income, EVERYTHING!!
I am now looking for 10 people to join me on this journey to success and happiness! It’s time to surround yourself with people who lift you up!

Fitness Coach Success- Maegan Blinka Forever FIT’s New 4 Star Diamond Beachbody Coach!
I am so excited to announce our very first 4 star Diamond coach on Forever FIT, Maegan Blinka!! Maegan is a college friend of mine who worked with me at Ruby Tuesday back in the day!! After college, we lost touch… we moved on, got married, had kids, and it wasn’t until last year that we were reunited after 6 years, thanks to Beachbody!!
Maegan reached out to join a challenge group of mine to just tone up and get back to that pre baby body! Well, she has done way more than that!! She is now in better shape than she ever has been!! What did it take?? Starting a workout regimen (working out from home) with the 21 DAY FIX, drinking SHAKEOLOGY daily as her meal replacement full of superfoods and dense nutrition, but also getting the accountability and motivation in our challenge group held in a closed group on face book! This is where the magic happens… where the lives are changed!
Since Maegan has found great success while in our challenge group, she loved the products and decided to sign up as a “Discount Coach” to get the discount on her Shakeology every month. She is a stay at home mom and quit her full time job as an accountant to be home with her babies so getting the discount would help her and her family with saving money.
After a couple months, Maegan decided getting the discount was awesome, but why not help people that struggle with their weight and health and also earn income for her family? She took her journey and started sharing it with her friends and family and as she showed her excitement about her success, everyone was joining in! She got tons of her family involved as the first people she could help, including her grandmother!
As Maegan continued sharing her journey and love for the home fitness programs and Shakeology, she has built an amazing and successful business! She is officially Forever FIT’s 1st 4 star Diamond Coach which means she has helped at least 4 people on her team build an amazing team themselves and reached Diamond rank!
She is changing lives and am so excited to share that she has worked very hard and has been so dedicated to her business that she and her family are currently building their 2nd home–> Their DREAM home at the age of 29!
I am so very proud of you Maegan and only looking forward to more amazing parts to your journey!
I am looking for 5 people to join us on this journey to success as a part of Forever FIT! We are the top 1% of the entire Beachbody Organization and looking for more people who are driven and passionate about their own fitness goals and want to pay it forward and help others reach their health and fitness goals!
I have a Coach Training that will get you started with understanding what we do as fitness coaches working from home, along with learning what it takes to be successful working part-time, earning a full-time income for you and your family!

So I have some new goals this time around!! Time to build more muscle in a few areas: My delts, my back, and my quads! Then lean everything else out and get that body fat low! I am ready to do better than my first 2 shows!! ITS GAME ON!! :)-
Ok— My morning workouts are sticking to the same as I did for my first two shows.. They worked out really well for me. My amazing Beachbody workouts!! Seriously, having the availability to just wake up while my kiddos are still sleeping and get my workout done is awesome! What a great sense of accomplishment you feel first thing in the morning!! And I am back to eating my egg whites and oatmeal but now I can add my apple back in and salsa on my eggs WITH …… MY 1 YOKE!! WOOHOO!! Lol!!! It is pretty awesome!!
My afternoon workouts are Body Beast but I am also incorporating weight training at the gym. I am lifting 5 times a week. Changing my routine a little with Leg Day and doing more bis and tris and calves… My first show, I did not work those out AT ALL!! My second show, I did bis and tris maybe 1 every 2 weeks, but now I will be doing them weekly along with calves at least 2 times a week 🙂 Leg day I will be focusing more on my glutes on a day by itself.. Plyos of course as I did before!
I love how each experience changes and is different! I learn something new each time!!
I am also incorporating my SHAKEOLOGY, my health shake meal replacement full of dense nutrition and superfoods daily, but also BCAA’s during my workouts to help with protein synthesis and improving muscle soreness.
Speaking of Shakeology….holy amazing breakfast!! LOL.. So I had my plain oatmeal and didnt want to waste 2 more minutes making my egg whites lol, so I mixed a scoop of chocolate Shakeology in with 1 tbsp Natural Peanut Butter and mixed that bad boy together and OH MAN was that amazing!!!
Gotta have my Flex Friday! I made my serious workout face hehe!! I posted a little challenge in our challenge group (group where I help people 1:1 with their health and fitness goals in a closed group on facebook) and had our challengers post their best Flex Friday post! We had some good pictures!!
One of my snacks I have been craving that I never had before is Grapefruit!! Now I have to be careful with how much fruit I have and what time of day I eat it, but this is pretty darn good!! I can’t believe I never had it before!! I was really missing out!!
Ok I’m not going to lie, my cheat meal Saturday was PRETTY darn awesome!!! We had our Beachbody Super Saturday which is a training event that we attend or lots of inspiration, motivation, training, and success stories!! We also do a workout so I definitely got an amazing workout in before that cheat meal 🙂
The amazing loaded nacho cheat meal! I split it with another coach of mine. Does that count?!? :)-
Starting Sunday out right.. got my motivation tank on and my morning cardio was INSANITY MAX 30.. yup that kicked my butt! It doesn’t matter how good of shape you are in, I swear these workouts get you every time! I always have my first meal right after my morning workout. I made my man cakes a little different this time!
I did my 3/4 egg whites, 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1 tbsp cinnamon, but then added 1 tbsp natural peanut butter and 1/4 cup plain Greek Yogurt. Yummy!! My 2.5 year old son was loving them with me!
Man cakes with Natural Peanut Butter and Greek Yogurt
So here you have it!! My first week of prepping for my next show!!! I am beyond excited to get this going and continue this amazing journey!! I love to continue building on my own journey, but also helping others getting into the best shape of their life, whether it be losing those last 10 lbs, 25, or 100 pounds, or just toning and building muscle!

I must say, I absolutely LOVE my team Forever FIT!! Team Beachbody has given us so many opportunities to help ourselves with our own health and fitness goals, but also the opportunity to help others! What makes this even more special is that we do it together as a team!
As one of my close friends, and success partners in my business was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma after having her second son, it really hit me on just how short life is and how much we take for granted. I also realized how blessed I was with good health, my family, and to be financially stable to provide for my family. But this is not the case for everyone, so our team wanted to come together and help those is need and struggling financially due to these unexpected illnesses like Leukemia and Lymphoma.
As Katy has fought and punched Cancer in it’s face (as she calls it), she is now doing tons of donating and giving to LLS in hopes to help others who struggle and their families. Along with beating Cancer, she was also nominated for Pittsburgh Woman of the Year which is a pretty AMAZING deal!!
I am so proud to say as of today, we ran this Fit Club in hopes of just making ANYTHING to donate 100% proceeds to LLS and we have so far raised $700!! I am so beyond thrilled that we are able to give to others and hoping to even surpass the $1,000 mark!!
How awesome is it that people who even give 5$, heck 1$… EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS and it makes a difference!!
Here is our video from this weekend at our FIT CLUB!!
Like I said, we had lots of fun, did lots of sweating for something so much bigger, and also ended the day with some amazing SHAKEOLOGY which is our high quality meal replacement that gives you more than just protein and your calories for food, but it gives you fuel for your body.. 70 + natural ingredients, increased energy, decreased bloating, decreased cravings, improved digestion, and more health benefits with antioxidant, super foods, phytonutrients, pre and probiotics!
Yup, its THAT high-quality!
Then we had some fun with our crazy moves and taking pictures and just hanging out a little!!
Our team comes together like a big family! We support each other, we motivate each other, and inspire each other! That is what it’s all about! We lift each other up and its such an amazing lifestyle to have and just amazing people to surround yourself with! POSITIVITY goes a LONG way!
I am so thankful we were able to come together this day and enjoy each other and just give that extra support to others! Thank you all for coming!! 🙂

It is so hard to believe 2.5 years ago, I make a decision to change my lifestyle and started my fitness journey! It was a step that totally changed my life and my family’s life!
As a mommy of 2, an infant and a 1 year old, a wife, an ER nurse, and taking masters classes, I didn’t think I had time to even focus on my own health. I was putting my own health to the side to focus on everything else going on. Then I realized that all I was doing is making myself more unhappy, uncomfortable, and insecure of myself! Yes, I did this to MYSELF!
How foolish of me to make myself unhappy in this way because all this does is affect my family and how everyone else looks at me. If I cannot love myself, how am I to expect anyone else to be happy with me? What kind of role model was I being for my family??
Do I want my kids to grow up and not put their health first… Should I make it OK to be unhealthy just because its the EASY and convenient way out??
As I made the choice to let my health and fitness go away, I realized a lot. My family counts on me, and in order for me to be around as long as possible for my family and kids, and do all the physical activities we should do as parents, I changed my way of thinking!
I decided to start eating clean, workout out to a home fitness program to save me time and money for gym membership and gas going to and from, and following the guide that was given to me by Beachbdody.. along with that, I incorporated this health shake meal replacement called SHAKEOLOGY that was introduced to me!
What is Clean Eating?!
I am simply eating fresh veggies, fruits, and lean proteins like lean turkey burger, chicken, fish (tilapia, cod, tuna), and lean red meat 1 time per week. I intake healthy fats like coconut oil, avocados, and raw almonds. I do my shopping outside the isles at the grocery store because that is where I find my healthy food!
WHAT IS SO GREAT ABOUT SHAKEOLOGY?!
It gets tough to find meals with so much nutrition and health benefits- In order to find a meal like this that is ALL- NATURAL, you would be spending tons of money at the grocery store, and buying tons of ingredients. What Beachbody has done for us is made our lives easier and did the work for us so we have an easy, convenient, healthy, nutritious meal that gives our bodies everything it needs!
HOW HAS SHAKEOLOGY HELPED ME?!
This is so easy for me to talk about because literally, it has helped me in sooooo many ways. From the convenience of this health nutritious meal that I could intake rather than skipping my meals because I was too busy too eat from the improvement of my digestive system, the energy I gained from all the super foods and natural ingredients, to the cravings that I never thought I could over come. I had HUGE issues with binging on peanut butter and ice-cream in the evenings.
I would do so well during the day, and then BOOM, Im binging again. With Shakeology, I make it with natural peanut butter or PB2 so it takes exactly like my ice-cream, but its healthy!
This is huge for me!! I never thought I could have something satisfy me and find a healthy alternative to something so terrible for me! But I did… I call it my little miracle in a cup! 🙂
WHY TELL EVERYONE ABOUT SHAKEOLOGY?!
WHY NOT?!? It has changed my life, it keeps me on track with my nutrition which is 80% of my results, and I know it has helped many many other people!!
Just like when you go to the movies or a good restaurant.. you tell everyone about it right?!?! Well, here you go!! I want to share this with everyone because I believe it can benefit EVERYONE!!
I have helped hundreds of people reach their goals because I am able to share my story and what Shakeology, our home fitness programs, clean eating, and support and accountability in our challenge groups have done!
I am not alone in this transformation story… All those people who gave it a try, and did not give up on their health, now stand beside me with a transformation!
My team and challengers are absolutely amazing and have incredible stories themselves to share!! One thing we all do is drink Shakeology EVERY day to give us our daily dose of dense nutrition and super foods, to give us that easy convenient meal to keep us on track of our goals, and to use as a healthy alternative of what could potentially be harmful to your body if you kept eating that particular food.
Just a few of our men and women who have transformed their lives using Shakeology and Beachbody!
This picture right here is our actual Shakeology catalog. I am right there, sharing my journey and story with what Shakeology has done for me. I started off unhealthy and unhappy, but with having some help with my nutrition, support throughout my journey, and accountability in my challenge groups, I have been able to reach my goals!! More goals than I ever imagined!! I never thought I would reach my goal body, and then have to make new goals as a Figure Competitor which I am able to do now!

Since prepping for my NPC Figure show, I am eating a TON of asparagus. Im not sure if a ton even gives it justice lol. So, I decided to take my asparagus to a new level!! I am a big fan of balsamic vinegar, so figured, why not soak my asparagus in it and throw it all in the oven?! Not to mention, garlic makes me happy too, so of course that will go in my recipe as well!! Would love you to comment below if you try it, let me know how you like! 🙂
2 Stalks Fresh Asparagus
1 tbsp minced garlic
3 tbsp Balsamic vinegar
Dash of pepper to taste
Extra Virgin Olive Oil spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut off stems of asparagus
Spray Baking dish with EVOO spray so it just covers bottom of dish
Add asparagus to dish
Add minced garlic, pepper, and 2 of the 3 tbsp of vinegar and mixed so mixture is throughout asparagus

I am seriously ecstatic with the news I got yesterday!!! I know our team Forever FIT has been growing tremendously and is filling up with so many driven, dedicated, and passionate people, but it is going to a new level!!
Before I get to the nitty gritty, I have to say, joining Beachbody and working for this company has changed my life in so many ways! I started my journey for myself, wanting to lose weight after having my 2 boys and wanting to gain control of my addiction to food. I was one of those bingers who would do the FAD diets, starve myself, then gain it all right back… NOT COOL! I was over it and wanted the change, so I found Beachbody and the home fitness programs we have…. I took a leap of faith, joined a challenge group (closed group on Facebook that I check into daily to stay accountable and get tips, recipes, etc) and started incorporating SHAKEOLOGY into my nutrition regimen daily to give me the super foods and dense nutrition I was not getting from my every day foods. As I found my body changing, and my family getting better eaten habits, I knew sharing my journey with others was exactly what I wanted to do! I wanted other people to feel the accomplishment I have, so I signed up as a Beachbody coach to help others physically and financially.
Where does the financial part come into play?
Well here it is! Heather and Trevor have signed up as coaches to help others, but they are also on their own health and fitness journey… Just like me, they are using Beachbody programs such as PiYO, INSANITY, BODY BEAST, P90X, and also using SHAKEOLOGY daily and clean eating to find success with their lifestyle! It shows in the picture above, that that is exactly what they are achieving—-SUCCESS!!! As they were completing the home fitness workouts, they entered in a challenge called the BEACH BODY CHALLENGE on the Team Beachbody website (after you sign up for a free account with your coach- please ask for info on how to make me your coach for 1:1 support). This Beachbbody challenge has you follow your home fitness program, the nutrition guide given to you when you get your program, and include Shakeology once a day as a meal replacement of any meal (I pick one I need quick and have trouble getting in) and you track your progress by taking your before and after pictures and measurements. Not only does this help you track your progress, but it is a great accountability for you!
Once you are done with the fitness program, you enter your results to get your FREE T-SHIRT, but then you are entered in to winning money!! There are 500$ winners, 1000$ winners, and goes up to the grand prize of 100,000$!! Who in the world gives you monetary gifts for losing weight and getting into the best shape of your life?? BEACHBODY DOES!!! They want to see you succeed… they want to see you reach your goals— Be happy, confident, successful, and healthy!!
This is why I fell in love with this company! Its not a company who just sells you something and its up to you to do it on your own… We have coaches like myself to put you in challenge groups and work 1:1 with you along the way and follow your journey until you reach those goals!
October is just starting, I know we are putting away the bathing suits and short and pulling out the winter clothes, but that does not mean you have to give up on how you feel and look… It’s time to make this winter a healthy one!! There is not rule saying you have to gain those 10 pounds back just because its cold outside. I am giving you the opportunity to workout for 30 minutes a day in the comfort of your own home, having the healthiest meal of the day delivered to your door without any hassle, and you joining my challenge group on Facebook for FREE when you have me as your coach. Its time to add more success all around! This is the month that I want to pay it forward.. I want to give YOU the opportunity I had that changed my life!
