Running your Own Race: The Comparison Game will Kill You 
The pups are at Doggy Daycare with their besties (Sandy and Bella) which meannnssss....
 (We love Royal Pets in case you are looking for a daycare/grooming/vet/boarding/pet store in the Clearwater area!)
I can get my Hammer & Chisel on without any furbutts underfoot :P It goes a lot faster but it's not nearly as cute haha

My fitness goals have changed SOO greatly from when I first started back in 2010. 

2010 GOALS:  Look good in a bikini - Get through P90X (huffing & puffing)
2011 GOALS: Crushed P90X so I built my endurance and set new goals like Unassisted Pull Ups, One handed Pushups and pushed myself to new levels 
2012 GOALS: Try to keep up with Jay LOL Put on muscle
2013-2014....Figure out WHY I am always tired, sick, in pain

-- I finally got my Hashimoto's diagnosis in Nov 2014 and was SO relieved that many of my symptoms could be explained. I was to the point that I was basically falling asleep during my workouts. (You can read more about my health journey here:

This year has been all about HEALING my body, taking it SLOW and realizing that is OKAY. Just because 2011 Kati was kicking some butt doesn't mean that I should beat myself up now. 

Goals are individual, not universal. Just because someone can run faster, lift heavier, go longer...doesn't mean your efforts are crap. 

Playing the comparison game will eat you alive. Don't let other people's progress dim your success. And don't hate 'em cuz you ain't 'em haha 

Run your own race. ↞↞↞ Lessons I'm still learning

'Tis the Season to Pay it Forward

Thursday, December 10, 2015

Meet my car, Hope. She an awesome 2010 Nina Sentra. “Hope” has been with me since 2011 (Earlier that summer, I was rear ended in a hit & run. My poor Toyota didn’t make it so I was in need of a new car).

Car shopping has always caused SO MUCH anxiety. To make matters worse, I wasn’t expecting to have my car totalled sooooo I did not have a single cent saved for a down payment.  With virtually no credit… the whole process of having to apply for a loan almost sent me into a panic attack.

Luckily, I found a great deal and my parents helped me with a down payment. “Hope” was all mine and I’ve always been so grateful to have her. One of my FIRST goals as a coach was to earn enough for my car payment and eventually pay off my loan as early as possible.

Beachbody has been such a godsend that I was not only able to pay off my little car...but I was able to cover my mortgage and completely pay that off along with every other piece of debt #CompleteFinancialFreedom!

On stage, shredding my mortgage!

This car has been with me during such a TRANSFORMATIVE time in my life. And even though my paychecks have increased tenfold...I never saw the need to trade her in or upgrade.

...However… that has changed. A couple of months ago, I met a coach on my team. A young mom who has been driving her son to daycare in a RUSTED, WOBBLY, SHAKING car. I think there is more wrong with this car than right- Basically an accident waiting to happen.

I knew this was my opportunity to pay it forward and give HOPE to a young family in need of some reliable {SAFE} wheels.

This weekend, I have to joy of gifting HOPE to this incredible family and sharing in the magic of Beachbody hehe

In honor of my team reaching a HUGE, MASSIVE, INSANE goal... I am finally be able to walk into a dealership and get a car without the anxiety, stress, trembling knees and fear.

#TisTheSeason UPDATE: Cassie came for a visit and drove her NEW car home!! I'll miss my little Nissan but I am OVERJOYED for her to have a SAFE car for her growing family!

Stretching Boosts Your Energy

Wednesday, December 9, 2015

Stretching is one of the BEST ways to boost your energy & alertness. 🔌

Ever feel absolutely exhausted after work, school, To-Do Lists, stress, parties, Grocery shopping, Christmas shopping and everything else going on in your life?

--- Take a time out to S T R E T C H it out ---

Stretching encourages your body to naturally release tension, increase circulation (that gives you energy! 🔋 ) and increases the production of those feel good hormones.

Find some ME time and stretchhhh. K? 

Turn your Fitness into Your Business

Tuesday, December 8, 2015

What if your weight loss journey was your ticket to a thriving business, a fulfilled life and finding your passion?

I never would have imagined P90X would lead to a business opportunity. As far as I was concerned, it was just some infomercial workout. 

At the time, I was working as a full time store manager...immersed in the retail world...preparing for the INSANE holiday season...

Despite the fact that I worked crazy erratic hours, I was tethered to my job (Both financially and emotionally).  I was living paycheck to paycheck - the thought of trying to find a new job was terrifying. I didn't want to jeopardize what I had. 
And even though I was unfulfilled, stressed out and felt completely unappreciated...I was petrified to leave because I felt very UNqualified to any other type of work. 

I felt STUCK. Stuck in a dead end job. Stuck in my unhealthy habits. And stuck spending my time around joy suckers.

So desperate for a change, I started doing P90X & drinking Shakeology in secret. (I didn't want anyone to know I actually ordered an infomercial product LOL)

As I started to see results and build my confidence, I wanted to pay it forward. I learned that I could actually help people and do this FOR A LIVING. By sharing my results, it gave me the accountability I needed to keep going! 

I learned that I could have an incredible IMPACT by helping others get HEALTHY by simply sharing my experience and newfound knowledge. 
AND I could help them become success entrepreneurs -- that translates to no more stress about finances, no more stress about work and FREEDOM. 

Since I started as coach, everything about my life has changed. I am no longer a slave to insane schedules. I have complete freedom- I get to make my own schedule and work when/where I want. 
We live a debt free life (I was honoured with the Financial Freedom award this year!! woot woot! No more mortgage payments!)
I get to teach people how to change their lifestyle and become healthy for the long term. 
I share my struggle with Hashimoto's to inspire and give others hope <3 font="" nbsp="">
And I help others start to DREAM again =) 

Without a doubt, this is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I'm fiercely passionate about sharing.

I will TEACH you how to build a SUCCESSFUL business!

I’m starting an online NEW COACH MENTORSHIP training! I will mentor you on a daily basis and give one-on-one encouragement as you learn the ropes.

What is the Extra Shoelace Eyelet For? How to create a Lace Lock to prevent blisters

Friday, December 4, 2015

As I was talking to one of my customers today about footwear, she told me she had NO CLUE why athletic shoes have an extra shoelace hole.

It's actually very useful especially if you are a runner or your feet slide around around your workout.

I love using it to help my tootsies stay extra secure during a workout soooo I decided to make a video in case anyone else was wondering smile emotico

Is this NEW or OLD news to you?
