Wow, when I don’t wash my hair, I get SO much more done!!! Can anyone relate?! Maybe I should just cut it!! Those of u with those short cuts.. I wishhhhh I could pull that off 🙏🏻😏 My face & features just aren’t right for it. ✔️Did a 20-minute full body workout
✔️Watched a training while stretching 🧘🏼‍♀️
✔️Mentored some team members via voice text messages 📲
✔️Watched an IG story while I got ready
✔️ Went to Ulta & Starbucks w/Matt (grateful but omg, he’s so impatient💄💄💄🤦🏻‍♂️)
✔️All within ~10 minutes from my phone, sent an email about my virtual bootcamp starting Monday (check your inbox), made a pedi appointment, & ordered more mushroom cordyceps coffee from amazon!
Highlight reel? Maybe so ! That’s what I aim to focus on.. the positives, my gratitude for the small things, and the people I can positively impact💃🏽

Feeling happy & like i’ve got to just get something off my chest!! If u follow my stories, u know Matt & I we’re out running errands yesterday.
Well.. at one particular business, the woman was extremely rude to me. I brushed it off, killed her with kindness but I could sense she was unhappy, overworked, & probably under paid. I can only imagine what else she may have been dealing with.

And lemme just say... I’m sorry if this post causes you to roll your eyes in disbelief that it’s possible, but I’m gonna say it anyway bcuz Ive PROVEN it to be true & there are other women like me who need to hear it’s true ..and it’s HARD AF but it’s do-able👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼 You know that feeling at the end of the work week?? Is there a better feeling? 🤔☺️I remember that feeling well! Such a RELIEF! If you don’t get that, awesome, you’re already in a GREAT place!! Well ..(& here’s where you’re gonna roll your eyes🙄 if you’re a skeptic like I was🙋🏼‍♀️) really CAN live EVERY DAY like it’s that Friday after you get off work. U just have to want it badly enough & work consistently hard for it with an amazing attitude of gratitude!

I’m not saying in the end you will be released of all adulting responsibilities☺️ & clear of life’s traumatic events, I’m saying u can work to live a life that’s more schedule-free 📅 , that allows you to.. more of what YOU want to do, less of what u DON’T want to do,
..have the ability to NOT be at that dumb meeting, NOT have to see that person at work that makes your blood boil, NOT have to sit in traffic commuting 🚗 , be able to afford the vacation🌴, ..the first class seats so u have ROOM be able to give back to people/organizations that u love, hire out help that u or your family NEED.

You don’t have to be stressed about the unexpected house/car repair, the medical bill (or that VET bill 🐾), your kids’ braces 😬 , your kids’ special tutors, their travel sports expenses ⚾️ Every day I witness how these stressors are breaking people, breaking relationships, and breaking their bodies down literally. It doesn’t have to be that way! I get skepticism, but understand options.

Don’t settle! Agreed?

Would you believe when I first joined IG I swore I’d NEVER do a video ☝🏼..yep!! True story. Others were doing it & I was like NOPE!
While I’m at it, I might as well confess... I stillllll have yet to do an IG LIVE🙈 Topic suggestions?

I started on here with food pics, graduated to a flexing selfie 🤳 💪🏼☺️ and then my sister Chalene talked me into putting up a video! 🤮😨 I’m NOT saying you need to post workout videos like me (in fact, stand out, do what’s NOT being done. What are your strengths?) ☝🏼What I’m saying is ...stop playin SO safe!! Get out of your comfort zone & find YOUR wheelhouse🎯!! Instead of trying to fit a mold, aim to BREAK a mold💥

p.s. I’m still in the test group and can’t share deets until Nov1 🤐 so this is just a sample cardio interval, 1 min each 3-4 rounds. A poll on stories indicated u wanted to see more cardio options AND lifting (if u watch my stories, I created a lifting video demo’ing my typical back workout. It’s going on my stories in a few😉)

“I’ll wait til I have results first”
“I’ll wait til I’m at my goal”
“I have to help myself before I can help others”
“I’ll wait ‘til I feel ready”

All things I hear all the time from women considering Coaching. ☝🏼And believe me, I COMPLETELY get it - I said the same things before I started personal training years ago. BUT, the difference is, this isn’t personal training. This is a coaching biz; your businesses’ role is to provide accountability, support, relatability, community and leadership. It’s NOT about devising workouts or meal plans. ⏳
Thankfully MANDY MORRILL did the smart thing and placed herself in a situation/environment where success would be more likely (by becoming a Coach) where it would be hard sharing her journey & NOT get results. 🏃‍♀️She’s an athlete, been a runner (fast too!) and OF COURSE she has an amazing fit/healthy and beautiful body to begin with.. but check out her strength results since joining as a Coach in March!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

I used to watch others & think “what if” 🙇🏼‍♀️ and then I finally said WHY NOT?😁🙌🏼 I’ll put Mandy’s account below if you want to connect with her & find out more about what programs she did, etc.

Giveawayyyy 🎉 🎉 🎉
I’m OBSESSED with these new Takara leggings from #Carbon38 (they come in all kinds of colors! ) They’re high waisted, they suck u in, smooth u out and they fit like a glove!! I’m going to do the giveaway drawing for a pair of these in my 5-Day Sugar Buster group (on Facebook but c’mon, open a private account 😉) which starts Monday ! Let me help u BREAK THE CYCLE OF CRAVINGS🍪🍬🍦
👉🏼👉🏼To enter the group & therefore the drawing:
• Non-coaches only
• Like & Drop an emoji
• If you’re already working with a coach, please do not drop an emoji. Please refer to their next group🙏🏻 p.s. Space is limited FOR REAL! This group MAX’D OUT last time. First come, first serve!

I think one of the reasons people don’t love cardio is because it’s either too monotonous, or if it’s a HIIT or intense cardio interval, sometimes the moves are downright awkward and annoying (hard, but annoying/awkward to do). Are u with me?!?
So this is a cardio interval (can be done as a HIIT if u take short breaks and are ALL IN during the interval) of non-annoying but intense moves. 🔥
Well.. “annoying/awkward” is subject to debate but I personally think these pass the test 👊🏼
6 moves 1 minute each! 3-4 Rounds
1. Burpee into alternating lunge
2. Speed Skaters
3. Mountain Climbers
4. Jack with alternating front kick
5. Side lunge into knee +high punch
6. Ski jumps
Be sure to warm up & do dynamic stretches first!!☝🏼😁
So are any of these annoying to u??

You’d think being a former ballerina I’d be flexible but NOT AT ALL. I worked REALLY hard at it then but “you lose what u don’t use” pretty much applies here😏
Thankfully I can move around throughout my day versus when I used to sit at a desk. Sitting all day or MOST of your day, staring at a computer, is so hard on your body!
I used to come home after a long day and a commute, all locked up & wake up feeling like I’d been hit by a Mack truck!🚛 Then you add stress & for me that led to a whole SLEW of additional issues ..mostly after-work cravings which led to eating more sugar which led to sugar crashes, inability to build muscle or lean down, inflammation, bad skin, bloating, etc.
I’m exhausted just reminiscing about it😅.
☝🏼Bottom line, become a better leader of YOU. I had to make some tough changes and sacrifices. If your job is at the heart of it all, consider finding a new one☝🏼

I’ve heard rumors like..
“She’s only successful bcuz her sister is successful” 🙄🙄🙄
“She creates the Beachbody workouts” 🤣🤣
“She created P90X” 😆🤣🤣
“She’s from California” (umm.. Michigan/California ..same thing!😂)
“She’s about 5’9” (🤣that’d be great!) & so many more things I’ve heard! The 1st one is the most common & most annoying; others are just usually harmless but comical, thankfully.
But if you think you’re safe from judgement bcuz you aren’t public on social media & you keep to yourself🙇🏼‍♀️, think again☺️. Everyone is judged no matter what. I’ve found the less people know about you, the more they just create a story FOR YOU🤔 (aka a rumor...ugh😠). I laugh it off but obviously there are instances where it can devastate someone & especially a child.
And some that are unhappy & have limiting beliefs, they’ll see if they can bring u down a notch or two! Ignore/delete/block.

I’m learning it’s best to just be really transparent and then let people think what they want to think. There’s always gonna be that small % of haters & nay sayers. Are you making decisions to appease THEM? Girrlll, you can’t fully live like that! Do what fuels u🔥

Question: what’s your go-to soulmate workout?
The one you do when working out is the LAST THING ON EARTH you want to do? The one that makes you feel amazing when done! U know mine👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼 ☺️

Despite smiles & laughter, we were DYING in this workout 😅I pride myself on the bootcamp classes I taught for years and I’d love to say my workouts were the best! We did sprints, we did burpees, we did weighted lunges for days, we did tuck jumps, ran stairs & air jacks🤩 ..but truth be told, at-home workouts can be kickass too and an hour isn’t at all necessary!
And we all know the KEY is nutrition, support, accountability & consistency! Motivated people motivate people! 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼 When I taught classes, this was the piece I wanted to give people that i can give NOW ..via an app that lets us be in this together DAILY despite differing levels, approaches and goals.
Why in the WORLD are you not on board yet?🤷🏼‍♀️☺️

Ok so u may have seen my embarrassing moment in the workout this morning (ig story & that was only part of the confusion🙈🤣) but the truth is, that’s SO me! I hadn’t been paying attention🤷🏼‍♀️And I just have to say to my scatterbrained friends, if *I* can have such success in business, ☝🏼so can you!
I’m not good at following (or listening to or reading) instructions😌. I never have been! I was ALWAYS the girl in class saying “so ..wait... what are we supposed to be doing??” It’s partially because my mind wanders EASILY to whatever ideas I’m fiercely focused on at the time, I don’t hear well (another ear surgery re-do coming up), & I’m overly optimistic WITHOUT knowing the details, like “I get the big picture, let’s just do this!!” My point is, if I ever come across as having my ish together all the time, please know I do NOT but I also do not dwell on what I don’t have or things I can’t control ..and neither should you! It’s the ultimate waste of our time. Agreed?

Makin room to workout! No problem! SWIPE 👉🏼Yes, I could go to the hotel gym but these workouts are quick, full body and killer-effective! So why not?! Anyone else do this? 🙋🏼‍♀️
