2019-09-07 11.58.26

And so many more MOMENTS…came together to make up a recent 4-day trip I took to Lake Norman NC. It was a trip for me to be with my coach – the one that shared her life so graciously on social media and allowed ME to discover THIS life changing opportunity – and a trip for me to be with MY leaders as well – to thank them and spoil them and teach them so that one day they are doing the same for their teams!

It was a TEAM retreat for the record books no doubt…but WHY?

Why are these things SO KEY and such a HUGE driver for me to host and my team to attend?

As coaches we have the opportunity to build an EMPIRE without ever leaving home.

A DREAM come true to this former, stay at home mom who needed to find herself after babies!

And whether you have little ones and a desire to be home with them or simply a desire to travel more or work on your own terms or simply live beyond the nontraditional 9-5 this business has the ability to be a BLESSING beyond words.

Sometimes building a business behind a computer screen can be a little lonely and the peer to peer interaction is what you need to jazz it up.

We have larger events like Summit and the Success Club trips that allow us to come together and quarterly Super Saturdays to see  local area coaches but the annual team RETREAT allows a time to be together as ONE TEAM UNITED and I truly cannot put into words the IMPACT this even has on my business.

I remember watching my coach go on her team retreat before I started thinking REALLY – that many girls in one place who are VOLUNTARILY spending the weekend together?!?!

I didn’t get…until I became a part of it. The unity. The community. THE FAMILY.

It never is about comparison and there are no secrets.

We are simply EMPOWERING one another to be the best mom/wife/friend/sister and coach all rolled into one. We share tips and ideas, life events and stories and motivation one another on all aspects of the business and just plain old LIFE!

I have learned that when you pour into yourself for a little bit you then have the ability to POUR MORE into others and this trip while seemed like it came at the most crazy time in my life – I now realize it came at the time I – WE – needed it most.

I don’t know many jobs – careers – that are built upon a CULTURE that encourages other women to empower other women and provides an environment for you to SIMPLY BE YOU because YOU ARE ENOUGH and your income is a direct result of the IMPACT you make but my goodness I sure am glad I found it!

But this I ensure you –

Behind the stock pile of selfies, and group photo shots, and pretty meals, and smiles and laughs…is WORK.
We work HARD because our work matters.

We work HARD because we KNOW we have something SPECIAL.

We work HARD because every time we SHARE what we do we have the opportunity to pay it forward and help others the same way this business has blessed us.

I got started as a coach because I NEEDED it emotionally AND physically and I knew there HAD to be other women suffering the way I was and I held that power in my hand to help them. And here I stand today not just doing that – but helping OTHER build their empires too.

I’d love to have you join me on next year’s trip!!! I promise, we don’t just take selfies, workout and eat salads…we’re a lot of fun and ENJOY life!

If you feel that you are not ready for 6 Weeks of THE WORK, some of our other programs like Morning Meltdown 100LIIFT 4, and Transform: 20, are great alternatives to prepare your body for this high intensity athletic training regimen.

Coming Soon: Morning Meltdown 100

She’s BAAAAAAACK!

Jericho McMatthews, admittedly one of my biggest girl crush gal pals, is back on the home fitness scene with a new workout program sure to challenge you yet keep you coming back for more, for 100 days!

I’ll be quick to admit that I have a slight case of workout program ADD.

I also get bored with repetitive workouts and I love to switch it up. So when I learned that this new program would be 100 days of 100 different workouts I was immediately HOOKED and ready to learn more….

Plus Jericho is pretty much one of my favorite people – and one of my daughter’s too!

Jericho McMatthews, Beachbody’s super trainer,  will kick your butt in a loving way.  She has such a unique way of leading the workout!!!

The Morning Meltdown 100 program is fun, challenging and doable for EVERYONE regardless of your fitness level.  I have had the opportunity to test out Morning Meltdown 100 at our success club trip live and with a few friends.  The program is GREAT! So let me take some time to give you the full details on what you can expect!

What is MM100?

Morning Meltdown 100 is designed to help you unlock the best version of yourself by committing to completing 100 workouts!

Every workout, Beachbody Super Trainer and Core de Force co-creator Jericho McMatthews is going to lead you through a 20-30 minute workout that can help you rev up your metabolism, burn fat all day, and build your best body ever — all working toward helping you live your BEST LIFE.

There are 100 unique workouts in total and each one is designed to help you transform your body. These include HIIT, resistance, active recovery, mobility, and more. The workouts are short enough to fit into your day without any excuses and the variety means you won’t ever get bored!

But more importantly, these 100 workouts give you 100 opportunities to work on yourself  — and reap the rewards of working out in the morning.

My workout is my me time and it’s been part of my DAILY routine for 5 years now.

Thirty minutes a day has gone from something I used to dread – to something I now NEED to maximize my own best self each day.

So many women say that they do not have TIME to workout!  I remember saying those things to myself staring down at my infant and 2 year old and once it became a HABIT – it then became something that I NEEDED to do – I miraculously now had the time!

If you were to read any article on the routines of successful CEO’s, most will include waking up early or working on as part of their routine!  The mindset piece is HUGE and trust me, you’ll believe it too!

2019-06-01 08.18.48

We have a DJ in the HOUSE!!!

Music plays a huge role in this program! For the first time in Beachbody history, each workout is set to a heart-pumping BPM (beats per minute) playlist mixed by a live DJ.

“Working out with the DJ feels like a party! You’ll have fun, live in the moment, and connect to the workout like never before,” says Jericho.

Between the upbeat mixes and Jericho’s energy, you’ll have all the motivation you need to give every morning sweat session your all.

Is This Program Right For Me?

You bet! We will discuss your personal health and fitness goals, but this program is great for a variety of people interested in:

  • toning up, losing weight, and building muscle
  • avoiding a weight-loss plateau
  • short, at-home workouts (and a variety so you don’t get bored!)
  • turning morning workouts into a habit

Testimonials from the MM100 Coach Test Group

A select group of Beachbody coaches were chosen to test out the MM100 program over the past few months. I can tell you honestly that everyone is LOVING this program and the results they are getting!! Here are just a few photos and testimonials that I wanted to share.

morning meltdown 100, team beachbody, beachbody on demand, top coach

“I get messages all the time like ‘I could never do that.’

YES you mother trucking CAN!!!! I couldn’t do this at first either, I just finished workout 72… freaking SEVENTY TWO! There are one hundred workouts in this program.. ten different styles, ten different times. I’m not bored. I am still sore AF all the time. And I feel like a bad ass athlete when I finish workouts like this one.

Some days are sloowwww, some days are stretchy, some days require balance and some days you get to FLY! I was honestly a little scared of a one hundred day program but here I am 3/4 of the way through it and I can’t believe it!!

There are ladies and men of all different sizes, shapes, and ages in the test group… and while your still shot of this move might not look like mine … it will be YOURS! And you’re a bad ass athlete too… if only you believe!”

morning meltdown, transformation, health and fitness

“This last week every time I’ve seen a video of myself I’m like 😱😱😱😱how is that ME?! Neverrrrr have I ever felt this freaking INCREDIBLE!!! Also decided to do a throwback for grins, and thanks to Beachbody after seven years of marriage and two kids we look better now than on our honeymoon.”

morning meltdown, transformation, health and fitness

“I have always considered my upper body to be weak. I even struggles carrying my daughter around for longer periods of time. This weekend, we walked around the outlet mall near our house and she was getting hot and didn’t wanna walk and wanted to be carried. Typically my husband does it bc my arms get tired after like 5-10 mins. This weekend I was able to carry her myself. It may not seem like a big deal but to me it was. Especially since she cuddled in and laid her head on my shoulder.

Oh and another victory— I woke this morning the lightest weight I’ve ever been in a long time. I just can’t get enough of this program.”

When Can I Start?

Morning Meltdown 100 officially launches on Beachbody On Demand October 1, 2019. Offers go on sale in July, and VIP Early Access begins July 29, 2019. You can sign up for a Beachbody On Demand membership here.

You’re worth it.

TOGETHER WE truly are STRONGER!

Skinny Margarita

margarita.png

As we approached Memorial Day weekend kickoff in my Summer Slimdown Bootcamp one of my girls raised the question many were thinking:

How can we enjoy some beverages this weekend without totally derailing our results?

Great question friend!

I have a deep love for the bubbly – AND for margaritas but truthfully my stomach can’t handle the sugars that a margarita mix includes.

Poolside, this has become a favorite summer treat and simple to whip together as a single serving glass OR pitcher when gathering with friends.

SKINNY MARGARITA:

Ingredients 

  • 2tbs Silver Tequila (I’m not a brand snob but will say the quality makes a HUGE difference in the taste!) 
  • 1tbs lemon juice
  • 1tbs lime juice 
  • Lime sparkling water 
  • Ice

DIRECTIONS:

Combine tequilla and juices in a shaker cup with ice. Shake well. Pour into a cup of ice and top with sparkling water. Simple as that – then ENJOY!

If you’ve been thinking about summer AND healthy changes AND trying to figure out how that all goes together I invite you to join my next Bootcamp where women come together to work on becoming our own best self WHILE also simply ENJOYING – all of life’s little pleasures!

Everything you need to know about becoming business partners

could coaching be your career.png

Hello there sweet friend!

So your interest is sparked! Clearly or you wouldn’t be here reading this!

You’ve asked for more info on this Online Influencer and Virtual Coaching gig and I am EXCITED to share more about how we can become BIZ PARTNERS!

While I cannot MAKE you successful I can provide you with the tools and resources and mentorship to help you ROCK this YOUR way!

5 years ago, I was struggling to find the balance as a new Stay at home mama and former Audit Manager of a Big 4 accounting firm. Loving the freedom of being HOME and missing my independence – financially and physically!

Could it be – I actually MISSED WORKING?!?!

Maegan Blinka, Megan Blinka, UPF, What is the UPF, What is the Ultimate Portion Fix, What is included with the Ultimate portion fix program, UPF results, Ultimate Portion Fix results, Post partum journey, how to get results from home, weightloss results without fitness, Home fitness solutions, Weightloss solutions, New mama home fitness results

I never imagined becoming a coach could set me down a path to build my dream home, buy my dream car, get into my best shape and find a deep sense of confidence I didn’t know was possible.

But it did and its now my OBLIGATION to share THIS opportunity with YOU my friend.

I like to think of it as paying it forward!

You don’t have to “just get by”

You don’t have to “pay someone else to raise your babies”

You don’t have to be MISERABLE with your career.

And I am going to show you how!

HERE’S THE GAME PLAN:

1. Watch the 4 videos below!

2. Check out the images/info to get an idea  what this lifestyle/gig is all about and what its like on our team.

3. Keep an open mind and dream a little!

Actually CLOSE your eyes and IMAGINE where you could be in 3 or 5 or 10 years.

Is what you’re doing today getting you there? Could you see yourself IN MY SHOES – chasing after your dreams?

This business doesn’t play favorites, so you CAN achieve everything I’ve achieved IF you’re willing to grow, learn, and hustle!

LET’S START WITH SOME INCOME INSPO!

I know, talking about money and income seems a little cliche right?

Not normal?!?! Well we aren’t here to be AVERAGE!

Are you interested in earning an income by getting in shape, inspiring others through your journey, and helping them change their lives too?

While I can’t guarantee you any level of income or success {because that is entirely up to YOU}, I do want to some income inspo from my girls to show you what is POSSIBLE if you believe and hustle!

These numbers are shown in WEEKLY amounts (top row) and then MONTHLY amounts.

You can see we all start at the bottom. We start small but with consistency and dedication it grows. And that $70/week paycheck helped me cover the groceries and as it grew to about $300-$500 a week it covered some unexpected medical bills with myself and my son and my student loans…and I realized that this  part-time job from home had POTENTIAL.

HUGE POTENTIAL.

I noticed the compound effect was building and soon enough I realized I COULD DO THIS and create the life I was dreamed of.

Yes, I work HARD…but that work is done at home, on my terms.

In the early days it was all done while my kiddos were still sleeping early in the mornings and really late at nights and now while they’re in school I work during the day allowing me the FREEDOM to spend the evenings WITH THEM.

I share this NOT to brag, but to show you what CAN happen if you overcome your fears and GO FOR IT!

It was an image like THIS one that inspired me to START. I will never forget taking my phone to the face of my husband and showing him MY COACH’s income and being like I CAN DO THIS. I KNOW I CAN AND I WILL. And I have never looked back – so here I am inspiring you.

You  have NOTHING to lose except weight, doubt, fear, limiting beliefs, and the chains holding you in the spot you’re in now. READY TO GO FOR IT?

TIME TO WATCH AND LEARN MY FRIEND

Biz Building busy friend tip: LISTEN to these videos while you cook, clean, drive, do your makeup, etc.! Yes I’m talking MULTITASKING friends! I just need your ears to listen and an open mind to take it all in! Also if you are SUPER eager to CHANGE your life, crank through all 4 videos right now – and when you do realize that your go getter approach is exactly what we’re looking for! 

1: WHAT THIS BIZ IS ABOUT, MY STORY, & WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR

 

#2: THE WORRIES, FEARS, AND MISCONCEPTIONS ✨

The video below addresses the most common worries, fears, and misconceptions I hear from people interested in joining but HESITATING for some reason. Let me calm your fears!

 

Ditch the thoughts that….

    1. I’m not a fitness or nutrition expert. 
    2. I’m not at my goal weight.
    3. I don’t have a large network. I’m not active on social media. (Warm market)
    4. I don’t want to sell.
    5. I’m shy or an introvert.
    6. I’m afraid of what people will think.
    7. I don’t have time.
    8. I’m not that interesting.

And realize YOU as YOU are the best asset to your own business. TRUST me, its possible.

3: ALL ABOUT THE MONEY – getting started, what it costs and how we earn

When you join our team, we provide the absolute BEST training so you have quick wins and know exactly what you should be doing each day!

BONUS INFO!

PERK #1 OF COACHING: GETTING INTO YOUR BEST SHAPE!

Let me be clear: coaching is the BEST form of accountability and way to get healthy and fit! Don’t believe me, try me 😉

Here are some transformations from coaches on our team to show you how LIFE CHANGING this gig can be!

As you can see, most of us started with weight to lose (but some of us were already in pretty good shape- and just wanted to get more toned)!

It DOESN’T matter what type of body you have when you start! You can be 250 lbs or 100 lbs and be successful because it’s all about documenting your journey, being real & relatable, and INSPIRING other women!

Whether you want to get toned or lose 100 lbs, this coaching gig can help you do that! And our tribe will be there to support you every step of the way!

BONUS INFO #2 – COMMUNITY & SISTERHOOD

“You become MOST like the 5 people you spend the most time with. Choose those people wisely”

I never understood the power of the PEOPLE you spend your time with until I started spending it with other empowering UPLIFTING women. Then I got to the point that if someone wasn’t going to be positive and action based and solution oriented and someone that gave me ENERGY vs. took it away, I didn’t want to spend my time with that person – said with love

But TRUTH. The people you spend your time with IMPACT so much of your life.

We work hard – we play hard – we travel – we build businesses behind computer screens and we are STRONGER when we are TOGETHER!

FRIENDSHIP is one of the biggest PERKS of this coaching gig!

I’d be lost without these people I get to WORK beside, build businesses with and dream big dreams! And YOU could be right there beside us on our team retreat in the fall, our leadership event in Arizona or next year’s rewards trip to PUNTA CANA!

 

SCARED with a side of CURIOUS? Let’s look at it this way….

Most people are willing to spend 40 years working a job that doesn’t fulfill them vs. spending 3-5 years GRINDING at a job that they’re passionate about, and can provide more hopes and dreams than ever thought possible.

Don’t take the safe route. Be bold. Live courageously. And IMAGINE where this could take you!

Rachel Hollis quote day 1.JPG

Sweet friend, there is so much MORE to life than that! You and your families deserve more!

And if you are a go-getter and hard worker, dedicated and internally DRIVEN – this opportunity is for YOU! And I would LOVE to mentor you and show you the way!

Thanks for taking the time to check this out!

I hope you’ll believe in yourself enough to take the leap of faith!

Success Club cruise 2019

We are officially back from the 2019 Success Club Cruise to the Caribbean!

This is our 5th rewards trip with the company and FIRST one that included our kiddos and while that change added a whole new LEVEL of crazy to the trip I found myself overwhelmed with GRATITUDE for days.

Because I EARNED this trip – but WE got to enjoy it – TOGETHER.

Maegan Blinka, Megan Blinka, Beachbody Coaches, Perks of a Beachbody Coach, Top Beachbody Coach, How to earn free trips as a Beachbody Coach, What is the Success Club trip, How do you earn the Success Club trip, Vacation in Haiti, Vacation in Bahamas, Girls Group picture ideas, Fitness group picture inspiration, Ideas for fun fitness pictures, Royal Caribbean cruise ship, Harmony of the Seas

I still remember VIVIDLY when I learned of these trips…
I was a coach for all of ONE WEEK  when MY COACH set sail on a cruise she EARNED. I watched her.
I watched her workout with the trainers, spend time with her team, SHARE how she earned this and I made a DECISION right then and there that I would be earning the next one.
I busted my tail – helping a MINIMUM of 3 people a month get started on their health and fitness journey – and by September – 6 months later, fully earned the trip for the following spring!

The first trip (and the next 3 consecutive ones) were just the hubs and I. It was my way to telling him THANK YOU for supporting my crazy dreams and wild ideas…as I transitioned from a CPA full time working mom – to a FULL TIME Stay at home mom – to a girl who discovered a PASSIOn and became a MOMMYPRENEUR – building a virtual business in the hours when the little ones slept.

I think its important for YOU to realize that if you were watching me and my family and my team last week on the trip you understand YOU CAN DO THIS too!

I got curious – and chased the curiosity! Because well, in the world we live in, that’s a privilege we have!

I enjoyed our first 4 trips just the hubs and I – but bringing our kiddos along brought the  gratitude to a whole new level!

Curious about this coaching gig???  You can apply here!

What was the 2019 trip?

This year we set sail out of Ft. Lauderdale on the Harmony of the Seas which is an amazing ship full of activities for both the adults and the kiddos.

The kiddos created a countdown months ago, but truly were most excited for the UNLIMITED ICE CREAM they had heard so much about.

2019-03-24 13.48.32

But I think my favorite part was watching them build friendships with my friends kids. I mean I love what I do – who I GET TO surround myself with – but watching them develop those friendships and create memories was icing on the cake.

Our first day kicked off with the Elite and Premiere Reception in the back of the boat and was exclusive to all of the Top Coaches in the company!

As an Elite coach, we get swag bags and private events to celebrate our team’s accomplishments. A way for the company to say THANK YOU for paving the way – and a time for us to mix and mingle and mastermind and CELEBRATE together!

Thankfully the kiddos were BEGGING for a night in the kids club, so we enjoyed our first night on the ship enjoying our celebrations with our friends!

6:30 am came the next morning and we hit the deck for the first for 4 back to back to back mornings of WORKOUTS with the super trainers.

2019-03-26 07.03.04-2

I actually really do ENJOY my solo workouts in my basement every morning but there is something MAGICAL about surrounding yourself with a few thousand other motivated, driven people, who are sweating right there along side you, led by the best of the best in the fitness world!

Our evenings were filled with dinners out, walking around the boardwalk, sipping milkshakes from Johnny Rockets and just soaking in being PRESENT with the people who have helped change my life in so many ways.

2019-03-26 18.47.46-1

We had two port stops on our trip: Labadee in Haiti and the Bahamas

When my 7 year old learned there would be “real life trainers” on this trip, I had to take the opportunity to document it when we saw super trainer Jericho McMatthews soaking in the sun in Labadee.

2019-03-26 13.07.04-2

Jericho was so SWEET and welcomed my little girl with open arms…and all Aubrie could do was SMILE, then leap away after her picture!

The evening after our first port visit in Labadee, my son looked at me and said “Mommy thank you for starting Beachbody after I was born. I would have never been able to go on this trip and visit Haiti with my friends” – and I just hugged him for the longest time and didn’t want to let go

2019-03-26 12.55.42-1
TRUTH IS – there are a lot of things in our life – in his little life – that would not have COULD NOT have happened if I didn’t follow my heart and say YES to this opportunity when it fell on my lap 5 years ago.

2019-03-28 15.10.04-1

I started coaching when Colt was 9 months old and Aubrie was 2.
They don’t remember the mom who spent 60+ hours working away in the audit room, but they  know the WHY behind what I do now, and they know that my number 1 priority in life is to continue building a business that allows me to be THEIR mom first, and help others do the same.

I won’t pretend like building a business is EASY – it’s not easy. But gosh it’s worth it. And the fulfillment I have gained through this opportunity and the gift I get to pay forward daily keeps me going, when the going gets tough!

Have You Ever Thought About Coaching?

I’m going to start by saying this is a business that requires an investment.

Financially and in YOURSELF!!!

But you have the opportunity to turn this into a LIFE CHANGING business – in so many ways!

When you sign up with me you gain a spot in my internship program where I teach you how to launch your business, how to get results, how to invite others, how to share and not sell and how to truly GROW a business.

You will fail – you will have to get vulnerable – you will have to WORK to build the life of your dreams but your income is a direct result of your IMPACT you make and I don’t know too many other opportunities that operate that way!

Ready to launch your biz and link arms as Business Partners?

If you are COACHABLE – CONFIDENT, TEAM PLAYER – HARD WORKER & GO GETTER then I want to link arms with you!

The 2020 trip is in Punta Cana, and I want to soak in the sun WITH YOU!

What to pack on a cruise

We are about to EMBARK, again!

2016-03-13-08.29.44.jpg

Every year we have the opportunity to EARN a trip through my partner company.
Yes, EARN a fancy little getaway as a THANK YOU for helping other women lead healthier and more fulfilling lives – AND – help other women BUILD their own businesses doing the same!

It’s always in the spring, always somewhere tropical, and every few years, on the largest Ship we can get our hands on.

2016-03-16 18.52.28

This upcoming year its the Royal Caribbean’s – Harmony of the seas!

This is the 5th vacation trip my hubs and I have earned, but we’re taking it up a notch and trading in our usual solo ADULTs only trip and bringing our kiddos along, which means a HECK of a lot more packing to do!

2016-03-16 13.32.58

Amongst my google searches and talks with my teammates, some of which are going on their FIRST CRUISE I realized the compilation list of what to take on a cruise is ENDLESS and having cruised a half dozen times before I should share my top MUST HAVES!

1

A few things I want to touch on a little more closely:

  1. First aid kit/ Sea Bands/ Tylenol or other medications – First off these items will be available on the ship – but at a hefty inflation rate. Supply and demand my friends! And the last thing you want to worry about is finding children’s ibuprofen in the middle of the night if a little one gets sick. These are most definitely items to pack in advance and if you end up bringing them home PERFECT! Our kiddos are first time cruisers, so we added in some sea bands and dramamine for motion sickness.
  2. Sunscreen – Just like the medicine, you can absolutely buy this on the ship or in port but the cost is outrageous. What you see in the image below is a small representation of a gallon ziplock bag filled to the top! We all have our own preferences on sunscreen so I have 3 full bottles of the kiddos pick, 2 for the hubs and 2 for myself. Again feel free to bring home what you don’t use, but you will be happy you have it!
  3. Power cord strip WITH USB ports – Cruise ship rooms are smaller than traditional hotel rooms (I mean its a hotel that FLOATS people!!!) which means plugs are not abundant! Having a power strip with USB ports will allow you to use one outlet to charge your phone(s), laptop, and anything else that may need plugged in!
  4. Sanitizing wipes and a small sanitizer – again this is a floating hotel! Even with daily cleaning service and hand sanitizer stations at most corners you turn, having your own wipes and little bottle in your bag won’t hurt!
  5. Aloe/after sun lotion – On my last cruise I made the mistake of NOT reapplying my sunscreen in attempt to get a nice golden bronze color to come home to and I fried like a LOBSTER. On top of the pain, it was the day before our couples, hot stone massage. It was so bad we couldn’t even do the hot stones. The masseuse convinced me to buy the spa’s lotion to ease my pain and at a hefty price of $80 for the bottle, I made aloe a necessity for any warm weather vacation!
  6. Tide pen – Its unlikely that you’ll be doing any laundry during this trip but if you find yourself spilling a strawberry margarita on your new white dress or a kiddo drops ketchup down their new polo at dinner, you’ll be thankful you have this backup to lower the risk of stains!
  7. Towel clips and clothespins and suction hooks– There isn’t a lot of excess room in the cruise rooms and those little towel bars in the bathroom aren’t exactly made to hold a family of 4’s wet and sandy swimwear. No worries friends – I got you! You can use clothespins to clip more items and the giant towel clips will allow you to utilize your balcony space without worrying about your clothes and towels going overboard. Little suction cup hooks are great too for extra towel space if you don’t have a balcony room.
  8. Over the door shoe rack – This tip was just shared with me and I screamed GENIUS! Because of the small(er) bathrooms and shortage of counter space this allows you ample room to store a hair dryer, curling iron, make up, skin care, lotions, sunscreens, etc…Its lightweight, packs easily and just slips over the door!

I hope you find this list helpful and you ENJOY your next cruise or trip!

If you’d like to learn more about how I have been able to earn these annual trips for me and my husband/ family fill out this application below and I’d be happy to share more info!

Happy Sailing!

Don’t be Average Virtual Accountability group

Who actually STARTS something new with their health and/or nutrition at a time when its nothing but holidays and parties and egg nog and cocktails and such???

22 Minute hard corps high five

Those who don’t want to be AVERAGE.
FACT: The AVERAGE American WILL GAIN 7-10 pounds from this Wednesday, HALLOWEEN DAY through New Years Eve, let me say that again:
average american will gain holidays.PNG
Its a PROVEN statistic.
WHY?
Because they get caught in the downward spiral of the sugar and lack of routine and they don’t have the tools to get out of the spiral….so they just WAIT and vow to “start back fresh in January” –
Can I be frank here:
WHY THE HECK ARE YOU WAITING? This is your LIFE – your HEALTH – your future and your family! Don’t wait. 
So yes, I want to help those of you who don’t want to BE AVERAGE.
I want to help those of you who actually WANT accountability through the holidays, who WANT to stay surrounded with other uplifting women who support your goals!
Yes I will still bake cookies and enjoy the raw dough & I will enjoy Thanksgiving favorites with my family and great times with friends…
I will continue exercising regularly…
I will give my body superfoods EVERY DAY to help my immune system survive the winter and fill the voids most foods leave behind…
I will eat mostly clean foods
And I will END the year STRONGER than I started because my HEALTH matters and well, this is the only BODY I get.
If you want to link arms with me through this BUSY, crazy holiday season let’s CHAT!

FAST FORWARD 5 years, and countless home fitness programs later…and finding out I could turn this journey into a BUSINESS – and
