I LOVE avocados!

Besides the fact that they are a perfect anti-inflammatory, cancer fighting, and anti-aging super food...they are ridiculously tasty and loaded with healthy fats! 

Did you know you could blend some avocado in with your shakeology or protein shake to make it super creamy and yummy? 

They make everything better- add avocado (or guacamole) to sandwiches, salads, omeletes...


Don't know how to pick ripe avocados?Color can vary...but typically ripe, ready to eat avocados will have a darker color. It's best to pick them based on pressure. Ripe fruit will yield to firm gentle pressure. It will feel lightly soft but it won't be "mushy" to the touch. Ripe fruit is perfect for that day. Store in the refrigerator if you plan to eat it in a day or two to prevent the fruit from becoming overripe or spoiled.

If the avocado is firm, it will be ripe & ready to eat in a few days! 

6 Tips on How to Take Weight Loss Accountability Pictures

6 Tips on Taking Great Progress pictures!

Eeee! 30 days until Summit!
One thing that has realllyy helped me stay accountable to my goals is taking weekly progress pics! Just knowing I have to get into my bikini every Sunday is enough to keep me away from the ice cream
But not all progress pics are created equal

If you really want to showcase your results (even if it's just for your own reference), follow these 6 tips!

1) Chose a simple background where YOU are the focus
2) You should be well lit- try to take high quality pictures
3) Take multiple pictures of your front, back & side. (Arms relaxed & arms flexed)
4) Stay consistent- wear the same outfit each week!
5) Use a spouse, roommate, friend to take pics. If you're flying solo...DL a timer app for your phone. I've set mine on bookcases- it's perfect because you know you'll get the same angle each week. Get creative!
6) Don't chop off your head! Did you can win $$$ for your transformation with Beachbody workouts?
For a complete HOW TO on taking pics & measurements, watch these! 

If losing some lbs isn't motivation enough for you...maybe some extra cash will push you haha
Enter the challenge here --->>

Alright your turn to share lol What are some of your favorite tips to stick with your workouts?

Beachbody New Coach Training: 21 Day Smart Start

Monday, May 12, 2014

You guys are going to FREAK OUT! haha I'm teaming up with 3 of the TOP coaches (including THE #1 TOP coach haha) to bring you an EXCLUSIVE NEW coach training Group: 21 Day Smart Start: Coaching Accelerated! If you have been wondering what is it that I do...READ ON

Three & a half years ago, I signed up with a little fitness & health company called Beachbody…even though I had no idea what I was doing (and didn’t make a sale for 2 months!! haha) I KNEW it was going to completely change my life.

I used to struggle to pay the mortgage on my $100k house….stress about the bills...wait until the last day to pay them before I got a late fee. I used to work crazy hours, miss out of family gatherings & holidays and to top it off...I wasn't happy with my job, my weight OR my relationships.

Little did I know...3 years later...I would have total freedom! I live my life by design! I make my own schedule, I spend ALL day with my family, met my fiancé through Beachbody, all of my bills are on autopay (that was huge for my btw!), we get to travel wherever whenever...we're so blessed to have the freedom to move/live anywhere. I still have to pinch myself...but we’re moving into a 1.3M house in July near our friends in Florida!
For more pics of the house, click here
My MOTIVATION is to pay it forward and share this blessing with others who are struggling just like I was.
I didn't have the skills or the knowledge to be a business owner...but I did have
-A desire to do MORE with my life

You don’t have to have all of the pieces to be successful. It takes a special kind of person who is willing to take risks & learn as they go!
This business...the opportunity to BE YOUR OWN BOSS, is NOT for everyone

- Those who lack self-discipline.
- Those who want to take the PATH of LEAST resistance.
- Those who need structure and everything spelled out ahead of time.
- Those unwilling to step outside their comfort zone.
- Those who are unwilling to change.

You don’t have to share my exact story BUT I’m looking to connect with women who are JUST like me because I KNOW I can lead them effectively and I also know I will ENJOY working with them! 

 If you….
- know deep down you were meant for something greater...

- want to create independence & freedom for you & your family {or future fam!} BUT also feel a calling to give back and help others!

- Want to live by DESIGN: Be your own boss- work when you want, where you want doing what you LOVE!

- COACHABLE and willing to spend a year making short-term sacrifices if it meant spending the rest of their life enjoying long-term success! 
If you are reading this & you hear that little voice….and your gut is telling you to GO FOR IT...I want to to hear from you!

To be considered for the EXCLUSIVE 21 Day SMART START Training group, Fill out the application below
KNOW SOMEONE who would be a GREAT fit?! Send them this link!

Positive Mindset

Adding to yourself = Being a Reservoir
Making personal growth a part of your life to add to YOURSELF is being a reservoir. Reservoirs continually take in water but only to fill themselves.

Adding value to others = Being a River
A river FLOWS!! Whatever water it receives, it gives away.
That’s what we should be as we learn & grow. It requires an abundance mind-set – a BELIEF that we’ll keep receiving.
Your progress in personal growth gives you so much opportunity to contribute to others. Growing yourself enables you to grow others.
Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.

5 Tips to Build Your Network

5 Tips to Build Your Network! 
A few years ago...I did not have a lot of quality friendships. Drama, cattiness, jealousy, negativity...YUCK
As we get older, it's hard to make friends outside of the people we work with lol
Luckily I fell into Beachbody & discovered a world where people not only support one another, but that LIFT each other HIGHER.
Surround yourself with people who want to see your succeed, who support your dreams & are there to remind you that failures bring you closer to success.
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” so chose wisely
Whether you just want to make new friends OR you want to build your network for your on! 

  1. Get Involved & Join the Fun!
    Find some clubs, groups, communities to join with people who share common interests with you!
    Surround yourself with like-minded people. (Examples: Rowing Club, Gardening, cooking, book club, mommy club, fitness club, etc..) I've met tons of amazing people when I've taken my dog to puppy school! Volunteering in your community is another way to meet the most incredible people!
    Note: To make friends, take an interest in others. Don't make it the "me" show...ask questions & find out more about them.
  2. Build Relationships!
    People help & do business with people they know, like and trust! Don't have the "what can I get out of this attitude" Instead, think about how you can help them. To have good friends, you have to BE a good friend.
  3. "Student First, Teacher Second, Servant Always"
    This is one of my favorite quotes from Brendan Burchard & it applies whether you are learning a new skills...or just trying to be a better friend.

    If you want to excel at something (relationships, business, piano...whatever), you need to practice humility & always have a willingness to learn. Be a student of life! Ditch the ego- you can't learn & grow if you think you know it all or if you think you're the best thing to ever happen LOL If you know someone who is a great conversationalist, ask them what they do! If you know a great gift-giver...ask for their advice!
    The most successful people & the people with the best relationships are always willing to learn and then share that information with others. Don't hoard information- be willing to teach!
    The day you stop the day you stop growing & thriving. Become a‘servant-driven leader’ and think, ‘How can I help others?’ (Notice a theme? :P)
  4. Quality Over Quantity.
    Instead of focusing on how many friends you can add....focus on building quality relationships!
    There is nothing quite like the personal touch. The greatest gift you can give someone is some of your time! I love getting on Skype calls with friends or sending them an audio message on Facebook (if you don't know about this...prepare yourself! On your phone, go to Facebook Messages. Click the paperclip to add attachment & then click the microphone button to record a quick message for them. It's more personal than text & it's quicker!)
  5. Have fun with it! Don't make this a chore, instead use it as an opportunity to open your life up with incredible people and experiences. One of the best things I've ever done was make a decision to start saying "yes" more.
    When someone invites you to something...stop making up excuses for why you can't...and JUST GO! I promise you, you will thank yourself! (For inspiration, watch "Yes Man" with Jim Carrey lol)
