I read the ingredients, put in a grocery order, and then at 4:00 the next day sat down to make it.
One problem: I missed the fact that it was a “slow cooker” recipe AND I had about 2 hours before it was dinner time.
I allowed that recipe to inspire me and I made a few twists and alterations.
At the end I realized that this would have been a great way to test out my new InstaPot but I guess we’ll save that for round 2.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 package andouille sausage
1 pound uncooked shrimp (peeled and de-veined)
1 cup shredded chicken (or large boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded)
3 red peppers diced
1 white diced
2-3 jalapeños (see note), seeds and stems removed (I used can and they worked great!)
3 cups riced cauliflower (frozen works fine!)
1 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 30-ounce can crushed tomatoes
3 gloves minced garlic
3 tablespoons store-bought or homemade cajun seasoning
½ teaspoon each salt and pepper, or to taste
cilantro or parsley, for topping (optional)
NOTE: If you want to use brown rice instead of the riced cauliflower add one more cup of chicken broth and follow the recipe at Creme de la Crumb.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO?
Slice sausage into sections (about ¼ inch thick slices). Remove tails from shrimp if they are still on. Shred and/or Chop chicken into 1-inch pieces.
Add sausage, chicken, bell peppers, jalapeños, chicken broth, tomatoes, minced garlic, cajun seasoning, and salt and pepper to a pot. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Stir in riced cauliflower and cook another 10/15 minutes.
Stir in shrimp, re-cover and cook for another 15-20 minutes.
Sprinkle with chopped cilantro or parsley if desired, and serve hot.
And if you give a try drop me a comment and let me know what you think!
“The best gift you can give to others is investing first in YOURSELF”
The countdown is on and the launch party is FORMING! To what?! The next BIG THING to hit home fitness…and its fast approaching: 80 Day Obsession!
But I’m going to PAUSE right there real quick and ask you to hear me out…
Did that word OBSESSION stop you for a sec? Because honestly it got me too! And I had to talk it out and really understand WHAT IT MEANT before I could get on board and let me just share…YOU my friend NEED this!
We had the opportunity to host a live informational call with Autumn Calabrese and we got to hear first hand about the creation of the program and the meaning behind the name.
This isn’t about being OBSESSED with the scale or your food or your nutrition…this is about being OBSESSED with being the best YOU.
The best friend, mom, spouse, child, aunt, employee, employer, etc..
Because when YOU invest in YOU – it ripples into all other areas of your life!! And that is something I can OBSESS over!
This is the AAA workout – with a focus on your abs, arms, and well, we’ll just say booty…but you get my point!
There are 3 “phases” to the workout program which spans 13 weeks. Your total start to finish time frame is 97 days – but you complete 80 workouts (let’s say an AMEN to Sunday Rest day!!!) so hence the name, 80 Day Obsession.
The workouts are 45-60 minutes, and just like in 21 day fix, there is a modifier.
You use the portion fix nutrition system but in a “timed nutrition” format, which is macro-nutrient plan geared towards getting YOU the best results!
My 80 Day Obsession LAUNCH PARTY will kick off upon the release of the workouts on January 15th and you can reserve your spot below!
But if you’re ready to get started NOW I have my Prepare to Be Obsessed (pre launch PARTY) group open – and we are counting down and sweating together NOW – through the holidays – to help us prepare for the new program!
WHAT ARE THE GROUP REQUIREMENTS:
-You must commit to the full 80 days together (alright, “97 days”) AND commit to participating in the group. Why? Because I want you to get the MOST out of this!
-Replacing 1 meal a day with Shakeology for the duration of the group.
OPTIONAL (but highly recommended is the Performance line supplements, Energize (preworkout) & Recover (postworkout)
– I must be your assigned coach.
This is an EXCLUSIVE LAUNCH PARTY GROUP which means YOU will be the FIRST to go through the program!
The first to get RESULTS
The first to submit those AMAZING results and have the opportunity to win $500 for your transformation
I am only looking for those women who are SERIOUSLY committed to completing this program with me and turning those new years RESOLUTIONS into RESULTS!
As mentioned above, the program begins January 15th but we are going to start PREPPING now in my PREPARE TO BE OBSESSED group!
So you’re interested, ready and now curious…
Here’s the run down on the purchase options:
If you are a new customer…
Mega Challenge Pack (BEST VALUE)
The only way to get the best results is to feed your body with the best fuel you can give it. This challenge pack includes everything you need for the entire duration of the program – plus you save $275.
So if Shakeology is “the healthiest meal of the day” – then why the performance line? Because you are going to BE SORE! This is a challenging new program. You may be pushing yourself to new limits and this line of supplements will give you the BEST results!
Most of my challengers already incorporate the ENERGIZE for before their workouts and they’ll quickly attest that this is the KEY to giving it your all, especially for those early minute sweat sessions! It gives you that little BOOST to give that extra push but doesn’t leave you with the caffeine jitters some other pre workout drinks do!
The recover is a post workout shake you have within an hour of finishing your workout that will replenish your muscles and greatly reduce muscle soreness.
And you can get it all in the MEGA CHALLENGE PACK:
1 year subscription to Beachbody on Demand which includes 80 Day Obsession program & all other Beachbody Fitness Programs & nutrition guides.

We have officially kicked off week 3 off our 30 day Elimination plan and while YES it is at the beginning of a Holiday week here (hello Thanksgiving) and YES I will enjoy a few fall favorites – NO – I don’t feel like I’m “cheating” or “splurging” – I’m simply living a life in BALANCE and that feeling my friends is INCREDIBLE.
THAT is what this plan is about for me!
Soooo – how could eating pumpkin cookies and some southern dressing (that’s like stuffing to us northern peeps) on Thanksgiving day be IN LINE with my 30 day elimination plan?
Because this plan is made up of a set of rules – That I SET – based on things I have noticed and how they IMPACT ME!
This plan is not about deprivation or cutting carbs or eating high fat or following a trend…
This plan is about LISTENING to how my BODY reacts to different foods. In the last two weeks I have lost 3 pounds. But you know what – that doesn’t hold a THING to what I’ve gained.
-Strength to understand when I am eating for fuel vs. eating for boredom
-The sense to prioritize SLEEP and to give myself some GRACE #ImHumanToo
-The realization that I do not need sugar to enjoy life #15daysnoCookies #ThatsARecord #IfIWantOneIWillHaveOne
Turkey Chili and Taco Tuesday are just as good without the cheese or tortilla chips
The courage to try new things, journal how they go, and course correct as needed
Understanding sometimes you have to EAT MORE to get MORE RESULTS
And I couldn’t have done it without the help of my FitFam ❤
These ladies aren’t just a group of fellow coaches. We are LEANING in to each other and asking for ideas and sharing tips and cheering one another on and picking one another up and this ATMOSPHERE is one that would allow anyone – who wants to – to THRIVE!
If you don’t have this sort of support network and you’re struggling to get into a HEALTHY balanced routine, then please REACH OUT! I am here to help!
We are traveling to visit family on Thanksgiving day and will enjoy some gatherings and I will no doubt be out of my routine.
But while there are things I cannot control – there are things I CAN control.
I’ve already prepackaged my vegan superfoods – combined with digestive health boost (c’mon my traveling friends, you know this is needed) and the power greens boost, because well not much of Thanksgiving dinner screams GREEN. But I want to make sure I am still getting my nutrition in…PROBLEM SOLVED.
I will choose the foods I LOVE and let the others be.
I may enjoy a sweet treat, if I’m feeling it.
Perhaps I’ll sip a glass of wine.
Time will tell
But I will tell you I will not feel like I am stuck on a DIET, I will choose and do what’s best for me and I couldn’t task for a better sense of satisfaction in my own skin.
I mentioned last week I was starting Intermittent Fasting and after 7 straight days of it I am happy to say I DIG THIS STYLE!
When I first heard of the idea of “fasting” for a portion of the day and not immediately eating post-workout I got a little nervous. I didn’t THINK it would be in the cards for me but honestly when I broke it down it ended up making my mornings EASIER.
I would wake up,
Drink my energize,
Get showered and ready,
And amongst getting the two minions up, fed, dressed, ready for school and out the door I would shovel something in or sip my shake during the crazy.
Now – I just get all that done and when I come HOME I make my shake and enjoy my breakfast.
Here are some of the fabulous meals I enjoyed last week!
I’ve been generally fasting for 16 hours with an 8 hour eating “window”
Here’s an example of what my day looks like:
Sleep 10:30 – 5:30
5:30 Wake up, down energize, workout @ 6
9:30-10:30 Break – the – Fast
12:30ish – Lunch
2:30ish – Snack
5:30 – 6:30 Dinner
There are two main things I’ve noticed:
I am no longer sneaking a bite of the pancake or soggy cereal that the kids leave behind – nor their fruits and veggies that I would normally think of as “freebies” – #IamNotAGarbageCan #LessonLearned
I am not mindlessly snacking late into the evening
Those two little things are going a LONG way!!!
I shared this video with my team about what I was doing and why:
Here’s the game plan for the week as I kick off with some holiday unknowns and wiggle room.
I know during this time of year it can be EASY to throw your hands up in the air and just say “I’ll start in January” – but I encourage you…if this spoke to you, if you’re thinking maybe you should try something new or challenge yourself then I invite you to join my Mission Maintain: Holiday Survival accountability group.
From November 27th – December 24th we’ll be sharing tips and ideas and motivation & meal plans & cleaned up cocktails & healthy twists on old favorites because the “holiday season” doesn’t have to mean you put your skinny jeans in the back of your closet!
You can join us here!
I talk about it all the time on my social media channels because quite frankly its like a saving grace…
But what is my magic mommy go go juice all about?
What is energize?
Performance energize, aka my magic morning mommy juice, is a preworkout drink designed to help you blast through your toughest challenges with a surge of energy.
Before you begin your workout, or get active, use Energize to help sharpen focus, push harder, and last longer.
Energize pre-workout product is formulated with key ingredients that are SCIENTIFICALLY shown to help give you energy without jittery side effects. Take it before workouts to help:
Boost energy and endurance
Improve intense exercise performance
Sharpen focus and reaction time
Increase muscle power output
Delay exercise induced muscle fatigue
When do you drink it & How do you mix it?
Simply mix with water according to the label instructions, and drink within 30 minutes before you begin exercising.
I persoanlly prefer it COLD and will put a water bottle in the fridge in the evening so its ready the next morning. You can use anywhere from 8-12 oz – mix – shake – ENJOY!
Why is it effective?
Energize is formulated with:
Beta-alanine This amino acid helps reduce lactic acid buildup in your muscles, which helps to delay exercise-induced muscle fatigue so you can push harder and last longer. Numerous scientific studies show that beta-alanine is especially effective at helping to improve performance during intense exercise.
Low-dose caffeine (from green tea and coffee bean extract) Low-dose caffeine has been shown to be ergogenic (which means it helps enhance performance). It also helps improve reaction time and focus, and reduce exercise-induced muscle fatigue. From recreational exercisers to elite athletes, studies show that it can give you both a mental and physical boost.
Quercetin This powerful performance-enhancing phytonutrient gets a lot of attention in leading exercise physiology-nutrition laboratories because it can help improve endurance and delay exercise-induced muscle fatigue to help you get through your workouts and give you a competitive edge.
What is Energize better than OTHER energy products?
You get a safe boost of energy (without jittery side effects).
It’s a powerful combination of ergogenic (performance-enhancing) ingredients and phytonutrients that are scientifically shown to help improve exercise performance, sharpen focus, and delay exercise-induced muscle fatigue.
It contains functional ingredients that have been scientifically shown to work. Other products include gimmicky ingredients with no evidence that they work.
Key ingredients are included at their clinically established effective serving levels.
No artificial colors, artificial flavors, artificial sweeteners, or preservatives.
Is it tested?
Energize, along with the other Performance products, has been tested by NSF International.
As an independent, accredited organization, NSF International tests and certifies products. The NSF Certified for Sport marking assures your Beachbody Performance products have been thoroughly tested for quality.
What does this mean to you?
This means you can be confident that Beachbody Performance supplements have been rigorously tested to meet NSF’s strict banned substance standards when taken at the recommended serving size.
Beachbody went through this rigorous certification process to meet the growing demand of athletes, coaches, and all those concerned about banned substances in professional and amateur sports.
Energize has become part of my DAILY routine and I found it really beneficial to help me push through my early morning workouts, especially on those days when the little ones may not have slept so well
If you’d like to incorporate energize into your daily routine and/or work together to help you find a fitness routine you can stick with LONG TERM please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to me onFacebook!
I’ve been sharing and talking publicly about the 30 day elimination plan that I began with some of my friends on November 6th but I haven’t yet taken the moment to share with you WHAT it is or WHY I’m doing it and with the recent questions I’ve received I realized it was best to just lay it all out there!
So here it is!
This is not whole 30, this is not paleo, this is not a portion fix plan and this is not vegan.
This is ME noting what works best for ME.
Over the last 3.5 years I’ve been making my own health and fitness a priority. I’ve followed a variety of programs and as I progress and as I try new things I’ve noticed some things that used to work for me don’t anymore!
For example, a loaded yogurt bowl used to be part of my DAILY routine. I looked forward to it every morning! The greek yogurt with some fresh berries, a drizzle of honey and some crunchy almonds to top it off! But over time I noticed my skin was breaking out like crazy.
I didn’t think I ate “a lot of dairy” but when it was suggested to cut it out I noticed improvements almost IMMEDIATELY.
That was the first eye opener! And with that, I began noting how different foods impacted my skin, my sleep, my energy levels, my cravings and I found:
Through my own experiments over time, I found I feel my best when I am: Grain free, gluten free, dairy free and (limit) my sugar…so that’s my 30 day PLAN!
Now those who know me know I love a good cookie and I don’t ever plan on cutting out cookies entirely but I am no longer including them daily and after 8 days no cookies I am proud to say I am not just surviving but THRIVING.
I kicked off my 30 days with a 3 day refresh. Not because that’s what everyone else was dong, in fact I don’t think anyone else in our accountability group started that way but after wrapping up a trip to Florida, London and then Vegas in a 5 week span – my body needed a JUMPSTART and this always does the trick!
3 Day Detox Results
I can’t really say that I lost any certain number of pounds because well, it was one heck of a morning in our house upon completion and I just never got there #momlife but I lost the BLOAT.
I needed to break the bad habits and this was exactly what I needed to kick it into high gear!
Oh, and don’t mind the instant tan- it’s just the difference in light I was standing under-that did not come with the detox. #sorryfriends
Together we’ve been holding one another accountable through a private Facebook group complete with live calls with different nutrition experts and celebrity trainers, like Chris Downing, the creator of The Shift Shop.
I’ve been leading challenge groups for years now. They are my saving grace and give me so much JOY and really give a purpose to what I do for a living but I will admit it feels good to be on the CHALLENGER side again. I am loving the change, the victories and knowing that we are doing this TOGETHER!
So what’s my meal plan look like?
I’m splitting my daily caloric intake into 4 meals. I’m not eating LESS I’m just eating specific foods that I know help fuel my mind and my body for optimal function!
Meal prep has been KEY for me to stay INTENTIONAL with my choices and make sure I don’t find myself caving later in the day!
Last week was the warm up.
This week kicks off my first go at Intermittent fasting.
I don’t have all the answers but I am willing to give it MY BEST not just for myself but for my challengers and those that allow me to be a part of their journey!
I am getting ready to kick off my Mission Maintain: Holiday Survival group on the 27th and I want you to know I have a spot set aside for you!
Living a healthy & balanced lifestyle isn’t easy.
But you’re statistically 6x m ore likely to follow through with it if you have someone else holding you accountable.

We are going to end 2017 STRONGER than we started.
To the parent who struggles to find a NUTRITIOUS meal that their children will eat, without a moan or groan or fit or battle…I’m writing this to you…
If your kid eats plenty of fruits and veggies and healthy fats and lean proteins then I may hand carve you a medal (j/k I can’t carve anything!) but seriously I have had this conversation with MOST of my friends and I know we have all been there at some point…
For 6.5 years I’ve battled with my strong willed daughter at meal times.
And I know you may think that’s a wee bit exaggerated but from the time her tiny fingers could grasp bites of food she would navigate around all fruits and veggies on her plate and find the carb loaded noodles and breads practically with her eyes closed.
If you can relate to what I’m sharing here…keep reading…I have something for you!
The self proclaimed SUGAR QUEEN 👸
From the time she was a baby fruits and veggies and protein of any kind were a no go.
Pretty much non existent…and trust me it wasn’t for a lack of trying.
3.5 years ago I began investing in my HEALTH and I saw my Chrons disease symptoms diminishing and I was convinced that nutrition really MATTERS….
Her pediatrician wasn’t too concerned as she was still “growing and healthy” but as someone who preaches and teaches the importance of NUTRITION and the impact it has…beyond the waistline it pained me knowing her daily intake of processed junk…
But a girls gotta eat right?!
Enter my saving grace…
The first time I whipped up this organic, non GMO, gluten and dairy free, fruit and veggie smoothie blend she told me it tasted like POOP 💩#fact
But I know from experience, that her taste buds have been trained to think sugar=good and that with consistency this can be changed…
2 months into CONSISTENT DAILY chocolate smoothies for this girl and we are seeing so many improvements
she’s sleeping better she’s asking for LESS junk she ASKS for her shake every day…opposed to me suggesting it she’s choosing healthier options all around she KNOWS she’s doing it and PROUD to be like mom and dad
So how did we did we implement it with our kids?
WE KEPT TRYING!
We knew that a fruit and veggie smoothie blend complete with proteins, fiber & healthy fats was something our kids needed in their diet – the way we do too – This gave us a simple solution
We made the same rules for both kids – even though our son was far more likely to grab an apple over the goldfish he needs this daily too! I mean who doesn’t?!?
We talked about WHY they needed to eat healthier and how it could impact them as they get older. The more they understood the more likely they were to WANT it
We made a rule that the kids have to TRY what we are having for dinner but if the want something else to eat it can be a shake but no junk – no snacks
We found a recipe that they like! Simply shaken over water and ice or milk was a no go – but BLENDED with some banana and all natural peanut butter hit the spot!
We made it fun! They help make it, they get to add some chocolate chips and sprinkles and on a good day a dollop of whipped cream too!
This has now become their anytime meal! Its rarely breakfast because they like enough other variety foods, but it can be! Some days its what cures the HANGRYness that they have right after school, sometimes its a nighttime snack but most often it goes along with dinner because that’s when we struggle – or have struggled – the most.
My friends: I know what it’s like to FIGHT during meal time NIGHTLY and to constantly feel defeated and to WISH your kids would WANT to eat something healthy but I finally found something that WORKS for us and well, like I do with everything:
When I find something I like-I SHARE IT!
If you’re still reading this then I think it’s safe to say YOU CAN relate.
I encourage you to TRY this with your kids.
There’s a full 30 day money back guarantee if you don’t like it but I truly think if you give it a go you’ll see the same success we have and you’ll come back to me in a few weeks and say THANK YOU!
I could give you a link to buy it but honestly I want to know who is interested, why you’re interested, what your kids battles are and how I can help you solve them!
If you’ve been following me on social media this week you may have noticed I am doing a sneak peek into a BRAND NEW program coming to homes all over the US, Canada and the UK in January – called 80 Day Obsession.
The corporate led test group just wrapped up and I can tell you the results are MIND BLOWING!
The program officially launches in January of 2018 but you have the opportunity to participate in TWO sneak peek weeks – where you can get a GLIMPSE into the program with A LITTLE OBSESSED.
You can also get prepped for the program by joining me in a “Prepare to be Obsessed” Facebook Accountability and Support Group.
But before you do that, let’s chat more about what you can expect from this program!
What is 80 Day Obsession?
The 80 Day Obsession workout program is an effective, step-by-step approach to building a shaped, curvy butt while simultaneously shrinking the core. It’s 80 days of obsessive focus on fitness and nutrition spread over 13 weeks.
This is not meant to be a beginner focused program but rather targeted to those who want to take their fitness & nutrition as well as results to the next level!
For the first time, Beachbody On Demand members can experience each day of this program in real time.
Starting January 15th, 2018, each new workout will be posted for you to do along with the cast, so you can experience it as well.
Day by day, you’ll feel like you’re part of the action – following along with Autumn and the cast and they progress through the program.
How long are the workouts?
The workouts are intense and average 45 -60 minutes.
Does the nutrition plan follow the container system?
The nutrition plan does incorporate the portion fix containers but not how they were/are used in other programs. You will be following a professionally calibrated macro-timed-nutrition plan with specific meals/containers/types of foods to eat at each point in the day.
The nutrition plan will follow the portion fix nutrition containers that have been used in other programs like Shift Shop, the 21-Day Fix, Hammer & Chisel, Insanity Max: 30, etc…
But rather than looking at a total allotment for the day you are provided with specific breakdown of what you’re eating and when including specific pre and post workout meals.
You are eating at specific times of the day and you have a pre and post workout meal.
One meal a day can be replaced with Shakeology and use of the Beachbody performance line is highly recommended. The energize is my magic mommy go go juice for my pre workout, the hydrate is during the workout (think benefits of gatorade without the sodium, sugar and artificial flavorings), the recovery is post workout (and the key to being able to get up and crush the next day’s workout) and recharge is what I drink 30 minutes before bed (to help speed up muscle recovery and sleep!) and this combo helps you get the most out of your workouts while optimizing results!
What can you do NOW to prep for the January release?
First off you will have an opportunity to preview the program with: A Little Obsessed:
A Little Obsessed workout program is a 5-day introduction program to prepare people for 80 Day Obsession. These workouts are shorter, easier versions of the 80 Day Obsession program and will include a 5-day meal plan and calendar.
Here are a couple of important dates for A Little Obsessed to keep in mind:
• November 6 – November 10: A Little Obsessed will be available exclusively to Beachbody on Demand members as a live stream event. This means, starting on November 6, each day’s workout will be available for live stream at 9am PST and stay up for 24 hours for only BOD members to try. A total of 5 workouts will be available – one for each day between 11/6 – 11/10.
Due to popularity – A Little Obsessed will repeat the sneak peek the week of 11/14 – 11/18.
• December 20th – January 14, 2018: A Little Obsessed will return to Beachbody On Demand, so everyone can try it out and ramp up for the launch of 80 Day Obsession.
Are you interested in setting some healthier habits but overwhelmed with ALL the aspects of the fitness and nutrition and find yourself paralyzed?
Maybe you would be more successful if it were SIMPLIFIED.
If you could just focus on the nutrition side of things and then add in the fitness later.

Well you’re in luck my friends – those little color coded containers are getting a facelift!
Because we already know that staying on top of your nutrition is a key part of achieving your weight-loss goals, which was the baseline for Portion Fix, the seven color-coded container system that teaches you how to eat the right foods in just the right portions for you, created 4 years ago.

Can we just start this off by saying JET LAG is a real thing.
I have flown to California countless times and NEVER experienced much change in my body and as we jet set to London I was CERTAIN I would just quickly adjust upon arriving and quickly adjust back to normal when I got home. #WRONG
I’ve been home 5 days and I am still not quite ADJUSTED but running on excitement of our Founding Coaches who are OFFICIALLY part of the Team Beachbody Community with our first International Launch into the UK last week!
So: What is Team Beachbody Coaching? What’s this international launch all about? What’s next?
Let me rewind a bit…
“I’m in London for my job.”
“I’m in London for my job”
“It’s a the middle of October-middle of the week and IM IN LONDON FOR MY JOB”
That is what I was thinking when I stepped off the plane in London and came to the realization that this side gig that began 3.5 years ago, built in small pockets of time in between early morning hours and late evening hours while my kids were (sometimes) has turned into an incredible opportunity that is now expanding my impact internationally!
My first “big girl job” was for a Big 4 Accounting firm.
Let me rephrase that…A Big 4 INTERNATIONAL accounting firm.
I remember dreaming of traveling opportunities and when given the opportunity to check the box for my preferences I selected them all and I wanted to see ALL THE THINGS.
But my priorities quickly changed as wife-life and then mom-life came into play and I remember changing those preferences to only local clients so I could be home and close to family but that dream to travel internationally never quite disappeared…just sort of went into hibernation.
Things came full circle these last few days as we walked around the city of London, visited Buckingham palace and saw the city from the London Eye!
And of course we fit in a trip to Abbey Road
And while it all started with a small goal to just help one other mama find that post-baby MOM-fidence again and make $50 to get myself a darn pedicure (#SAHMprobs) and just once be able to get the groceries and buy the food I WANTED and not the things that were on sale…it’s blossomed into SO MUCH MORE and quite frankly I’d be a fool NOT to share this WITH YOU!!!
This past week a new door opened and I am so grateful that this coaching gig allowed me the opportunity to travel to London, grow our team internationally and really grow-as a PERSON!

Let’s just say GREAT things happen when you step out of your comfort zone
SO WHAT IS THIS COACHING THING?
Most people are aware of Beachbody from the fitness side – aka – the popular infomercial programs later turned into LIVE! fitness classes: Insanity and P90X. Which was also my first introduction to Beachbody home fitness programs as my husband and I dabbled in P90X before our wedding back in 2009 and later purchased Insanity post baby #1. By the way, notice I said purchased – I still never finished that program (maybe if I had a coach… – that’s for another day!)
My first Founding Coach
Fast forward a few years, and I was reintroduced to Beachbody after baby #2 with the 21 Day Fix after looking for a way to combine fitness with my new Stay at home mom role.
I combined Fitness + Nutrition + Support and I got results and I couldn’t keep that to myself.

3.5 years later, I have gone from a former Audit Manager turned Stay at Home Mom of two turned Work from Home MOMpreneur and this business of mine has been built by helping other women reach their fitness goals as well as helping women build a business just like me!
Our income is directly related to the number of people we help and we are compensated through the sales of products and growth of our teams.
Simply put – we make an income from making an impact.
WHAT WAS THE INTERNATIONAL LAUNCH?
Team Beachbody recognized that the obesity rates among both adults and children in the current markets of US and Canada are also seen in the United Kingdom. There are MILLIONS of people who want a solution – who NEED a solution – and who could/would benefit from having a coach.
The United Kingdom is a HUGE opportunity for the coach network to truly make a DIFFERENCE in the lives and FUTURE of others!
We worked together as a leadership team to not only welcome our Founding Coaches with open arms but to TRAIN them so that they are not just launching their businesses but launching them well and making that IMPACT into as many lives as possible!
Whether you’re just coming across this on social media or you’ve been following me for a while I want you to know my door is open and I am happy to chat options with you about getting STARTED – whether as a customer or coach or somewhere in the middle!

3.5 years ago I got tired of watching my coach and decided to join her and that single DECISION-that split second CHOICE has rippled into a lifetime of opportunities and this is still just the tip of the iceberg!
If you’re find yourself curious, or thinking the “what ifs” or “could I” – let’s chat!!
Chase the curiosity, walk through the door that is open, and GO FOR IT.
