Whole 30 Gluten Free Dairy Free Accountability Group

So excited to offer a totally free Whole 30 accountability group! Starting May 1, 2015!
The idea is... we eliminate all foods that cause an inflammatory response and focus on eating the absolute BEST foods for our body, mind, energy, mood, gut, immune system, etc...

Eat: Meat, seafood, eats, veggies, fruit, healthy fats
Eliminate: all 
sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, dairy

Sound crazy? At first, thinking about eating only meat, veggies, fruit and healthy fats can conjure immediate feelings of deprivation.... BUT we are focused on all that we GAIN from eating the best foods.

Improved mood, health, sleep, energy, self-esteem and alleviate the level at which you operate.

I HIGHLY recommend checking out

Fitness Accountability Group

Let's talk 
Since dealing with my thyroid disease(Hashimoto's), I feel like I've gone through the "Five Stages of Gluten Grief"
  • Denial - No way! This doesn't happen to me- I eat healthy foods! "Gluten Free" is a marketing ploy
  • Anger & Overwhelm - This is bull crap and Gluten Free Foods suck butt. I don't even know where to start. This sucks. 
  • Rationalizing - What if I just eat ONE GF meal a day? What's the harm? It's less than I was eating before. 
  • Depression - My life is never going to be the same. Going out to eat is going to be awful- I'm just going to stay home forever. 
  • Acceptance - Ok, Im hungry. I better figure this out. 
Oddly enough... I didn't realize until yesterday that I've been going through something similar with my workouts. From stomping my feet and trying to soldier through 21DFX... to throwing my hands up in the air and saying "I give up"

I've finally reached a good place where I am accepting these challenges and I'm ENCOURAGED to keep pushing forward. .Workout programs are not "one size fits all". And while I DO believe the things we hate doing the most, are usually the things we NEED the most (ie pushups for me! haha) ...sometimes you need to listen to your body.

About 4 years ago, I tried to do Insanity. I did not enjoy it at all... and found myself avoiding my workout room. Instead of doing a less intense workout or modifying, I just stopped doing anything at all. To get out of my funk, I recommitted to P90X and had amazing results. I connected MORE with Tony and I found myself looking forward to that time. Sooo I decided to reapply that same strategy.

Recently, I discovered PIYO. To be honest, this was the LAST workout I could imagine myself doing. It seemed like it was too slow and would bore me... but actually... it's reenergizing me, I'm falling in love with my workout time again... and... I just feel good!
smile emoticon 

I'm SO grateful that I became a "Coach" because it always pulls me back to my priorities... Lead a healthy, fulfilling life while inspiring others to do the same. Love my FitFam!
If you have gotten in a funk or maybe you are also dealing with thyroid issues, don't give up! Try something new. Modify. Blast your own workout music mix -- switch things up! Just don't give up. .Maybe you feel like you need some motivation... maybe you need to recommit...or maybe you need to just GET STARTED....
I'm here for you! Cheering you on!

Smart Start: New Coaching Training Accelerated

I’m so grateful for… 

-- the incredible outpouring of support 
-- being surrounded by such caring people. Even though we may be hundreds of miles apart… I feel the love heart emoticon 
-- the freedom to stay at home & grieve for my sweet Sydney
-- a business & a team that has grown one heck of a residual income so I can spend as much time as needed with my little family 
-- the reminder that life is short, precious and no moment should be taken for granted
-- it’s ok to embrace all of your memories...even the sad ones {until I'm ready to let them go}
-- the reminder that it’s OK to smile, have fun and enjoy life even though we're still hurting.
-- the reminder that everything happens for a reason & it’s all going to be okay

I did a lot of thinking today… And the thought that kept popping back into my head was…I am so grateful to have Beachbody and this opportunity. 
So grateful I was able to create a future with HOPE, stability, support, FREEDOM...and have been encouraged to dive into my personal development so I can handle new challenges & emotionally devastating situations. 

I am a college dropout who was overworked and underpaid- barely making ends meet. Being a coach not only helped me get my head above water...but it helped me stay accountable to my fitness goals, build a team of AMAZING women & men, and create financial freedom heart emoticon 

While I would LOVE to tell you becoming a coach lands you {and your loved ones} in a safety bubble where rainbows shoot out of your booty… that, unfortunately, isn't the case. I also wish I could tell you time machines exist...

Life happens. And while I can't put my family in a big plastic bubble… Beachbody {and this community} is my safety net heart emoticon 

Besides helping you find a fun & easy balance to working out and eating healthier, I’m here to remind you that it's okay to DREAM BIG and enjoy the little things in life. Some days can be a little bumpy, but we’ll get through those days together. I appreciate you guys helping me get through my worst day ever. It’s not often that the WORST CASE SCENARIO happens… but it’s comforting to know that Jay & all of you have my back. heart emoticon 

With all of that being said…. I’m ready to open my heart (and my Smart Start New Coach Training group) to 10 women who are:

-- Coachable
-- Ready & motivated to make changes & create freedom for their family
-- Excited to help, support & encourage others
-- Serious about wanting to create more income for their family
-- Animal lover heart emoticon who understands if get sad about my sweet Sydney frown emoticon

((2 out of the 10 spots are spoken for.))

If you are selected, I will mentor you and teach you how to grow a full time income while helping people reach their fitness goals. 
I've developed this training alongside some of the TOP coaches in this business and will pass on everything I’ve done to build success so you have the BEST opportunity. 

I would love nothing more than to pay it forward, welcome you onto my team and into my family (we are a tight knit community) and help you create freedom and security for your future. (And quite frankly I welcome the distraction)

To Apply:

((NOTE: Not accepting current coaches as this time. I appreciate your understanding! xo ))

Dream Big! Live More! Inspire the Next! xo

Thank you for all of the support!

I decided today I need to get up, get dressed, and at least leave my room (especially after I answered the door twice in my bathrobe ).
Still feeling very heartbroken... and I swear I keep hearing her in the house... BUT I wanted to thank you for your support. It truly is helping ease the pain. Grief is so weird... it comes & goes in big waves frown emoticon
I hadn't intended on posting a crying selfie... but really this is as good as it's going to get.. 
A HUGE thank you to the Stay family this stunning arrangement, the beautiful white & pink roses from Kaelyn Kociemba (that remind me so much of her) and the flowers from Michelle 
I gathered them for a pic... but I placed them around in the house where she used to lay/sleep heart emoticon heart emoticon heart emoticon

Missing our Sydney girl

 It just doesn't feel real my brain can't fathom that all we found left of her is a couple tufts of hair
No body to bury ... No goodbyes... 
So heartbroken 
Thank you for all of your kind words It feels like there is a big hole in my heart & my eyes are swollen beyond belief...but we are taking comfort in each other and all of the memories we have

RIP Sydney

It is with indescribable pain & sadness that we share the loss of our baby, sweet Sydney.
We are beyond heartbroken at her unexpected & tragic death. She was such a lovable, social and cuddly baby. She was born to a feral cat on the street- I happily took her in and we bonded instantly.
She's been with me through 3 moves... learned to love 2 pups... and has been such a special part of the family.
While I only had 6 short years with her, she will always be in my heart heart emoticon
The loss of any pet is heartbreaking... but with her death being so abrupt...feels like a punch in the gut.
Kitty parents.. PLEASE keep your babies safe indoors... especially if there is wildlife nearby. (In our case, there is a pack of wild coyotes nearby that got to her frown emoticon frown emoticon frown emoticon )
heart emoticon heart emoticon heart emoticon
RIP my sweet baby fro

Thank you for all of your kind words It feels like there is a big hole in my heart & my eyes are swollen beyond belief...but we are taking comfort in each other and all of the memories we have with our sweet Sydneywn emoticon

girlboss Dynasty: Advancing to EMERALD Coach

Hey # girlboss Dynasty! 

NEWBIES start here:
Let's talk about your first MAJOR milestone in your business.
Advancing to EMERALD coach!

Simply put... Emerald means... YOU + TWO (personally sponsored coaches).

WHY aim for Emerald? 
It opens more income opportunities for you, it means you are actively helping people reach their goals, you start to take advantage of the network marketing business model, and you start to treat this business MORE like a business... which means it will start to PAY like a business a lot sooner.

You might not know exactly what coaching is...or what you're supposed to be doing quite yet LOL (And that's totally OK and normal) ...BUT... you have PASSION, fire, and you trusted your gut enough to take the leap of faith and sign up yourself.

SHARE your story - why you signed up. Genuinely share how you feel the accountability/discount/income/support of being a coach will help the people you know.

You have your sponsor and the team to help you navigate conversations, explain the business and get YOUR coaches started on the right foot to reach their goals.

Our team goal this month is to help YOU cross that Emerald finish line! I know together, we can do it!


1). I recommend you start by simply making a list of the people you feel would benefit from it, who love Shakeology, who are participating in your challenge group and cheering others on, who are ready to commit to their fitness goals, or even the people who trust you enough to help you and try Shakeology (mom, spouse, friends).

Try to come up with at least 10 names (use the Memory Jogger below- Trust me, its super helpful!) Listen to this National Wakeup call for some surefire ways to get to Emerald!
Achieving Emerald NWC

 PROCLAIM it - Believe it’s already complete and you will complete it.
― "I advanced to Emerald by March 31st!"

3.) This video might help to explain some things about being an Emerald and the benefits that come along with it!
Benefits of Emerald

If you are EMERALD +: Please share how it has benefited you (confidence/income/fun) AND how you signed up your first two!)
