Amongst the March Madness

It was 3 years ago today that I ***GULP*** made it public and launched my “coaching business” to the world 🌎

Throwback Thursday_college to now March 2017

I made a public post on social media INVITING my friends and family and followers to join me in this journey…a journey that was shaping and impacting my life in ways I never imagined but absolutely LOVED at the same time!!!

It was a request to commit to:

The accountability of a challenge group.
To replace one meal a day with Shakeology.
And too follow a fitness program…and to track/document/see how it could IMPACT them!

It started with one person.
Then the next month two.
Then the next month more and more…

And as I continuously SHARED what I was doing and the pride I had sharing my experiences with other women-and other moms-it began to grow.

As of today, I have had the honor of helping hundreds of people get started on their health and fitness journey and while I’m humbled to share that — I know it’s just a small dent in what I am capable of.

Finding balance amongst the madness isn’t always easy but that’s where I come in!!!

To help you-support you-be real with you and make sure that you don’t just say you’re going to make a change…but that you follow through!!!

Planning my 4th and final PIYO week

I firmly believe in starting and finishing a workout program but I will quickly admit I have a bit of a workout program ADD.

Your fitness is 100% mental motivation piyo

So to adjust for my own balance I’ve been doing 4 week programs. Its enough for me to find my groove, keep some variety and then move on when I get too “comfortable” with the workouts. This is where the On Demand All Access is CLUTCH!!!

I completed the Masters Chisel program January/February (although my mono/bronchitis/ear infection issues caused the 4 weeks to span almost 7…) and I am in week 4 of 4 with PIYO with Core de Force up next as I countdown to our upcoming vacay to Punta Cana in April!

Here’s the workout outline and meal plan for this week

PIYO meal plan week of 3_13_17.png

As you can see…I EAT with this plan…but its about the portions and frequency. I find having 5 smaller meals throughout the day keeps me consistently full and never STARVING nor over stuffed!

I do have some visitors this week which made having a PLAN ever more important.

PIYO workout with kids make it happen

And that’s exactly what this is – my GAME PLAN for the week. Can it change? Sure. And maybe we’ll swap the chicken and roast or my lunch one of the days but having a plan helps me get my groceries, waste less, and think less when dinner time rolls around!!!

I cook most food in bulk allowing for multiple meals and/or lunches.

Sunday I take some time to prep/chop/portion and do as much as I can.

For example – my peppers are chopped for my eggs, my berries are in one cup containers, the Turkey chili was prepped today, and the roast is already thawing in the crockpot along with a bag of carrots, potatoes and an onion so tomorrow I just pull from the fridge and plug in!

Maybe the cauliflower mash will be fried cauliflower. Turkey chili could easily be swapped for stuffed peppers…but again…its the PLAN that matters.

If you’re not used to meal planning or eating small frequent meals or eating “healthy” – it can be a challenge.

piyo motivation quote

But you’re not alone in this journey!

As a coach I provide support and accountability to my clients to not just get STARTED but make a plan and EXECUTE it as it becomes a habit. Change is never easy but as someone who has been on both sides of this equation I can tell you..CHANGE is WORTH it.

My hopes by sharing this with you is that it inspires YOU to invest in YOU.

To put yourself first (yes YOU – you busy mama putting all your time into everyone else!!!) – and to take action towards your own health & fitness goals!

If you do not currently have a coach and would like to work with me please complete the application below and I’ll be in touch about my next accountability group!

Fast and Simple Cauliflower Rice

Need a simple side dish but trying to avoid going carb crazy?!

cauliflower-fried-rice

We are LOVING cauliflower fried rice but I do believe there are good approaches to this simple little dish and not so good!

My best tip: KEEP IT SIMPLE!

Here’s what we found to rock our world:

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 3 cups riced cauliflower
  • 1 TBS coconut oil
  • 2 TBS slivered almonds
  • 2 TBS fresh parsley

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  1. Heat coconut oil over medium high heat
  2. When hot, add riced cauliflower and sauté for 5-7 minutes or until it reaches your desired tenderness (note the color of the cauliflower will change slightly as it cooks…I used that as a guide!)
  3. Top with the almonds and parsley and SERVE & ENJOY!

Note: We paired this with meatloaf for a classic, home cooked combo that warmed the tummy but didn’t grow the waistline!!!

An amputee’s journey to CONFIDENCE

I first connected with Cheryl in December 2014.

A then random connection on social media – turned into a challenger in my challenge groups – turned into one of the most INSPIRATIONAL women I’ve ever met.

Cheryl has had an incredible journey and I am honored to share it today…

In November 2012 her right arm was amputated and miraculously saved and replanted. She has no bicep, 1/2 a tricep and limited use of her hand. She had lost 60 pounds and then started having surgeries again and gained 40 back.

She is someone who enjoys exercise but needed help to get going again. That’s where I came in!!!

She knew she couldn’t always do all the moves of all the programs but she was willing to get STARTED – TRY – and use the nutrition program and daily Shakeology to fuel her body.

She had struggled with emotional eating but found exercise fills that need and she began to THRIVE…

2016-07-29-09-03-33Here’s a bit from Cheryl in her own words:

“I’m Cheryl and have been participating in Maegan’s challenge groups for over a year. She asked me to share how participating in the groups have impacted my life.

First off, I was embarrassed about how I looked and where I let myself get to. That’s what was the catalyst for me reaching out to Maegan.

So I joined a challenge group and started drinking shakeology. I swallowed my pride and become vulnerable to the process she introduced me to and when I did I was received without judgement and got support ….. REAL support!

Daily atta girls when I checked in and posted. When I stumbled I received input on how to accept my slip and make it better next time…… tools for my continued success. I realized TOGETHER we are strong!

That’s why I still participate a year later; it’s the support and knowing I’m not alone. Knowing there’s somebody in the group who has been there, is there or will be there. By participating I get help but I give help by openly sharing my journey .

I’ve come a LONG way and still have a ways to go so I still habitually post my accountability sweaty selfie and check in about how my day went because the process WORKS!

74 pounds later I can say I’m proof!

I’m off the insulin, the blood pressure meds, the anxiety and depression meds….I’m HEALTHY, HAPPY and have met some amazing, supportive women who have my back….. all I had to do was get over myself and honestly give the process a chance.

Jen E. Testimonial “I’m not alone”

Some people come into your life and you may not know exactly why but once they’re there – you get it.
You understand.
And you’re GRATEFUL.
Meet Jen.
A current and long time challenger of mine who has inspired me beyond words and has shown true dedication to herself for your family

“I’m Jen and I’ve struggled with weight my entire life. I did the yo-yo diets and even lost 90lbs unhealthily. I had a baby (now 12) and got married. Life was great. My life spiraled out of control February 8th 2008, I gained 100lbs shortly after my husband died. I lost my house, job and myself. Food and being lazy were my world!
I’ve tried losing weight no success I gained more. My boyfriend’s co-workers sister-in-law told me about BB and Shakeology, she said could help me get what I wanted. On September 2014 I joined my first challenge group, 21 Day fix I believe that’s when I was introduced to Maegan. I wasn’t sure what to expect. They said post how your day was, workouts, water, food and shake. I was like OK no one is gonna care what I have to say. Boy, was I wrong. I lost I think 12lbs and gained so much inspiration from this group. I joined every challenge group offered after that.
Jen Edgerton quote I can do this.PNG
 Wow, the overwhelming support you get from people you never met telling you great job or I understand…..meant the world to me. I now understand that I’m not alone in my journey and I can do this.
I look at these groups as a way to help myself when I feel like quiting and help others when I feel empowered. It’s a great way to share my concerns, struggles, recipes and just how I feel.

As of today I’ve lost 73lbs, it’s a slow process for me due to my feet, hips and back not cooperating. Someone wise (my daughter) told me that slow and steady wins the race. I’m 25lbs from my goal weight, I’m able to do real push-ups and have a heart full of inspiration.”
You know what they say: The road less traveled is never crowded.
Jen took a chance on herself and never looked back!

  • I was not a fitness expert and I’m still not.
  • I was not a nutritionist and I am still learning something new every day.
  • I was not at my goal weight and somedays I am at it and others not so much…its a journey.
  • I only posted on social media to share periodic pictures of my kiddos and NEVER liked or commented on anyone else’s pictures…#didntwanttobeacreeper
  • I thought people who took selfies were self absorbed & CR-A-ZY!
  • I never wanted to be called a “sales person”
  • I didn’t have Instagram or a Blog and had no desire to learn them.
 
And the list goes on……
 
Sound familiar? I get it!! Those same concerns you have about coaching…I had them too.
 
But you know what I realized? I knew I had POTENTIAL.

  • Potential to help women simply FEEL confident again…
 
  • Potential to provide for my family…
 
  • Potential to relate and create a TRIBE of other women who just GOT IT.
 
So you know what?
 
I pushed those fears aside and went for it.
 
I won’t say its always easy but my goodness its worth it!

Sweating for the wedding

I will never forget that ding on my phone and the moment I opened up my messages to see this picture from one of my challengers – Shannon.

Shannon and I had connected just a few months ago as she was just started to exercise and looking for support.

Shannon was a busy mama of two working on her Masters of Social work and hooked on daily fast food! Breakfast may or may not happen because, well, “she just didn’t have the time”

— how many of you can relate to that?!

Yoga retreat fast food isn't junk food.png

She was thinking that support of an accountability group may help her start making some healthier changes – not just for herself but her family too!

And with an upcoming WEDDING – she was ready to kiss that mom belly and muffin top GOODBYE!!!

Here’s what Shannon had to share: 

“I joined my first challenge group in October 2016. I have always struggled with being consistent when it came to working out and knew something was missing. I’m a busy mom, social worker, student, fiancĂ©, and soldier .. just to name a few. I’m sure many of you can relate to being and busy which leaves little time for yourself. The challenge groups have really pushed me to be accountable and offered a great support system. Even after a bad day or bad week the fellow group members were always there to offer words of encouragement and inspiration!

I stared the groups to help gain some consistency, but gained much more! I have so much more confidence in myself and my ability to take control of my health and fitness.

Below is a picture taken in May 2016 (left) and a few weekends ago at my bridal shower (right).

I’m not prefect, but I continue to get back up and try again, after all it’s a journey!”

**********************************************************************

I think its safe to say she’s going to walk down that AISLE with confidence!!!
motivation is what keeps you going.jpg

It takes courage to share what Shannon did and I am proud to call her my friend and excited to see her rock that WEDDING dress in just a few weeks!

Behind the scenes of a Challenge group

I am so excited to kick off my first ever “What is a Challenge Group – LIVE LOOK” – closed accountability group on Facebook!

what-is-a-challenge-group

I am coming up on my 3 year anniversary of participating and then hosting online Fitness challenges and I can tell you first hand it has spoken VOLUMES in my personal Health & Wellness journey. I honestly don’t know where I would be if I had stopped after that first round of the 21-day fix back in 2014…or heck even after a year. ACCOUNTABILITY IS KEY!

Blessings of Accountability.png

I was able to get to the point where I could carve out that 30 minute and time for myself – but controlling what was on my plate – going in my body -the other 23.5 hours of the day is where I realized THE STRUGGLE IS REAL.

But here’s the deal: when you surround yourself with others with similar goals – and struggles and strengths and weaknesses you learn to FALL DOWN – AND – GET BACK UP…TOGETHER!

And this is what I want to show people through this group!!!

The same key aspects that I teach in my full accountability groups will be introduced in this group as well!

FITNESS + SUPPORT + NUTRITION = RESULTS!!!

FITNESS:

Each participant will enroll in a trial membership of the Beachbody Club which provides online STREAMING to HUNDREDS of workouts!

I picked a few of my favorites to share with the group this week!!!

On demand trial calendar.jpg

 

NUTRITION: 

I have shared this simplified meal plan with my participants and I will walk them through how I plan out my meals, how the prep all goes down and how I maximize on those leftovers.

What is a challenge group - 5 DAY MEAL PLAN.jpg

I think its safe to say we are ALL BUSY:

Working mom, stay at home mom, dog mom, pinterest mom, amazon mom, entrepreneurs, corporate ladder climbers, etc..

We are all BUSY – but learning how to effectively PLAN out and PREPARE for the week ahead is CLUTCH!

And the final piece comes in ACTIONS and less words.

SUPPORT:

Its the accountability – knowing that there is a group of other people right there along side you – learning as you go – trying, failing, and moving forward.

Its hard to explain it to you-but I can SHOW you first hand the power it holds!

2017-02-11 07.02.10.jpg

Maybe you’ve thought about joining me in a group – maybe you’ve been one to think you had it all under control and you didn’t need ANYONE else’s help (that was SOOO me about 3.5 years ago!!!) – just check it out!

I mean what do you have to lose?
