Love The Skin You're In

weight loss challenge group

As a woman and a mom of 3 I know what it's like to be so hard on how you view your body. You nit pick every little flaw. You long to look like someone else. You wish babies didn't mean stretch marks and saggy skin in places. For me, after 3 C-sections, you wish the scar wasn't there.

I know what it's like to be so FRUSTRATED and DEPRESSED with your body. 6 years ago I was a miserable mess. I had NO clothes, no self confidence, I wouldn't even leave my house anymore with my family, it was that bad.

I was exhausted and I needed something NOW!  I didn’t love my skin, I didn’t feel good and I had to make a change.  I was introduced to clean eating, Beachbody at home workouts, and Shakeology for the first time through a friend on Facebook.  I was so mortified of my body I didn't even let my husband take my "before" photos.

I joined a support and accountability group because I was at a loss for how to change.  I didn’t have the money to go to the gym, to get a trainer, a nutritionist and pay for childcare.  But I did have a living room I could work out in when the girls napped, a dvd to play the workouts on and the 100% drive and determination to change.  
Over the course of those next several months I focused on “ME” for at least 45 minutes each day.  I would put the girls down for a nap and workout. Or I'd wait till bedtime. Sometimes I just had to put them in a bouncy chair while I worked out.

I sweated, I cried, I thought I would never change, but then right before my eyes my body started to change.  As I embraced clean eating and drank shakeology daily my skin began to glow, my hair and nails got stronger, and I had more natural energy to keep up with my kids.  I was stronger and I started to have more confidence. Family and friends were starting to notice changes. I went from not being able to do ONE sit up or push up to doing several. I was getting stronger by the day! I LOVED how I was feeling. Loved how I could see the depression and frustration melt away with each workout.  

I can say that because of my coach, the support of the challenge group and the other women in the group I truly have found a way to love the skin that I am in!  It’s never going to be my pre baby skin but hey I earned those stretch marks and scars!  I earned my imperfections and I learned to love them! They are a part of who I am.

So now, my job as a coach is to pay it forward.  I am going to be launching a specific accountability and support group that is geared towards matching you up and with a fitness program and nutrition guide to meet your needs but to walk you through the process of changing your unhealthy habits, creating a more positive mindset, embracing your imperfections and chucking the word diet to the wind.  We are not dieting, we are creating a healthy lifestyle.

Check it out! Me "before" about 6 months after my 2nd daughter was born. Then 6 months later, abs after 2 C-sections!!! Crazy ain't it?!

What Do I Need For This Group?
-Each participant is required to have me as their coach.  You can create an account here. If you have a coach already, please get with them!

-You are required to do a Beachbody fitness program, which I will help you to pick the one that best fits your needs.

-You are required to replace 1 meal a day with Shakeology for the duration of the 6 weeks because as I am teaching you how to change your eating habits and give you the tools to make this a lifestyle change we want to have at least 1 meal each day that is quick and easy but isn't lacking in your nutritional quality.  Shakeology does that!  It is my saving grace because quite honestly there are days that I am so busy that I don't have time to make a balanced meal so this is my go to!!!  Plus it really does taste awesome!  

-You are required to log into our online closed Facebook group daily where I am going to share tips, recipes, meal plans, & support/motivation.

-My goal is to get you a program that you are excited about and that you start and complete it. I do not want it to be something that sits on your shelf and collects dust!  

Does this sound like something you would like to do?

If so, take the time to complete the application below.  I will contact you within 24 hours to discuss whether this would be a good fit!  I am accepting a small group of customers for this group and I would love to have some motivated women who are really ready to make a change!  Lets face it, there will never be a perfect time.  The right time is now!  So lets get started!  

I am NOT going to let you fail!  I am giving you my word that I am going to support, guide and help you to truly make a change, live a more positive life and embrace who you are on the inside out!  We live in a world full of comparison and its time to chuck that to the wind and just BE YOU!!
