How many times have you said you needed to get in shape, get healthy, feel better, have more energy, change old habits, make yourself a priority?
How many times have you said..."but not now because it's Christmas, it's Summer, it's so and so's birthday, wedding, etc?? And how many times have you waited for someone or some thing to solve all your problems, relied on someone or some thing to cure all your aches and pains?
Let me tell you a little something...THAT WAS ME until FINALLY;
I was tired of being tired. I was sick of feeling shitty. I was done with making excuses. I was over my own damn complaining about something only I had the CHOICE to CHANGE.
I couldn't wait any longer, NO ONE was going to come save me, it was ALL up to ME. I would have to DO THE WORK on MYSELF on the INSIDE and all else would follow.
Let me ask YOU something... How many more times are YOU going to let yourself continue to complain about how you feel?
What are YOU going to do about it? and,
IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN?
So I tell you what, if you're ready to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, you're ready to take that bull by the horns, ready to take the first step on the journey of a thousand miles
I would love to HELP. YOU do the work.
YES it will cost something, YES you will have to work at it, YES it's summer, but nothing worth having comes easy and I PROMISE you it'll be the best investment you EVER make in YOURSELF.

Hey guys!!!! Still think that Plexus is not the real deal?
Former NFL New Orleans Saints & gym owner, Mel Williams, joined Plexus too! !That’s right! He loves his Plexus too! 👊💪🏈 Still think Plexus is a “girlie” biz???? He is not a paid spokesperson. He has become an ambassador. Aren’t you ready to get on board yet?
This is THE REAL DEAL! This is a GAME CHANGER!
Mel Williams's first post! 😊 Check out what he has to say about the pink drink!! 💕
"To all my Trained Assassins, friends and family... my search is over, I've been trying to find the perfect match that goes along with what I do- which is helping change people's lives daily. I've been taking Plexus for the last 5 weeks and the reason that I decided to become an Ambassador is because I've set really high goals for myself and I've been achieving them... This is amazing! Plexus has given me the energy that I need to push hard and accomplish my goals, and it is all natural. No chemicals, no fake stuff. I respect my body, and I feel like a million bucks, guys! For my former football teammates from every level of competition, please hear me out!!! It's not to late to get the old you back. I wake up today and say- BRING IT"
So, are you ready? Message me...& I'll work with you to get you on your way to #Healthyliving Let's do this!
Guess what I found near my office desk yesterday? Yeah! I have two 3 Day Refresh. 👊🏻 I am seriously looking for two colleagues who love to help and give back to themselves and others. I wanna grow and develop with others who care about health and fitness. I want two coaches who care about people. If you think you might be one, I have ya covered with a Refresh. This is a $70 value. I don't offer stuff like this EVER, but I am looking to expand and grow a great team. 👊🏻 Who wants to join an Elite team and Team Eudemonic? One of these is yours, and drop me a message or email below! Let's do this, and #makeashift ! 👊🏻✨😀❤️ #coacheschangelives#believeinyou#bossladymindset
Fresh out of the shower- I wanted to show you all my new workout tank. Only, I didn't wear it while I worked out! 😂 I love Huskies and wolves so I had to have it. I did 21 DF Extreme Lower... and Upper today. And guess what else, this is the first mirror selfie I've ever taken!
A Tale of Two Teens. One boy, one girl. More like twins then two years apart. Always like the same things, just in different colors. It's been this way for 14 years.
We tried many different brands of deodorant, before we found these and let me tell you, these two work perfectly. Not only does one stick last them each three months, but they don't stink. Now that says a lot, if you have ever lived with teenagers. Especially one that bicycles 70 miles a week.
They work perfectly and without all of the crap! The deodorant contains coconut oil, beeswax, vitamin E, and pure essential oils. No alluminum or other toxic chemicals. Ever.
It's no secret our dogs are equal members of the family!! And since we are careful with our own nutrition the dogs are no different. I present to you ... homemade doggie treats!!🐾 3 ingredients and super easy to make!!👍🏻 Check out my story to see what the dogs thought ...
When life gets you down and you ask yourself, " Why me?" 🤷🏼♀️ Why not you? You have incredible strength to handle whatever is thrown your way. Challenges are thrown at you to make you wake up and focus on what's important. 💗 Keep your chin up buttercup, amazing things are right in front of you. #momlife#adulting#momofteens#beyourself ❤️ #digdeeper#inspired
I used to fear failure. I didn't want to be made a fool of! But the more I read, the more I learned that failure is a MUST. Just as toddlers need to fall over and over as they learn to walk and run, as businesswomen, we take risks, and we will fail. .
We will have parties that are duds. We will have hostesses who don't follow our instructions. We will ignore opportunities for follow-up. We will make goals and not reach them. .
BUT, we will not let these failures keep us down. We will USE their lessons to do better, reach higher, achieve MORE. Day by day, step by step, call by call. Be enthusiastic in your failures, as they will push you towards success! Have a great day! #wednesdaywisdom#midweekmotivation
😂Gather your LIFE and get it TOGETHER!😂 @shauntfitness !!
Oh my gosh!
That IS EXACTLY what I am doing! .
The boxes are multiplying, but the calendar days are SHRINKING!
I am gathering, purging, reflecting, processing... HEALING!
And it feels AMAZING! .
What are you doing to gather your life and get it together?
Maybe joining me to get healthier in July might be a good step! Let's DO IT together!
Know why I keep posting all those sweaty workout pics, pics of my food, encouraging quotes and online Challenge Group invitations?
Because if I had not seen my coach share an invite to her online Challenge Group, I would NEVER have gotten on a path to being in the best shape of my life in my 40s!
Neither would my Challenger R....she shares in her words:
"Still working out everyday and just wanted to share with someone that I actually completed the side plank for a minute without modifying. Huge accomplishment for me! Thanks for introducing me to BeachBody. Still love my Shakeology everyday." Or Challenger B.... "I seem to be doing well. In my mind I was thinking I could eat just real foods like this every day. I haven't had any cravings. Only one time last night and it wasn't a craving. I realized it is a habit. I was eating late at night. Snacking. Just before bed - no good. The thought entered my mind and I thought to myself - you have done so good today. You aren't hungry - go to bed. And I did!!" NO bragging, just want you to know that for all of us that think it's too late or that there is no hope or that you are too set in your own less than healthy habits, I am here to tell you THERE IS A WAY and I will be on the journey with you every step!
Not the easy way, not the quickest way...but a way that combines PREMIERE FITNESS + PREMIUM NUTRITION + MY SUPPORT to equal SUCCESS!
I am invested in making sure you are satisfied and ready to rock whatever outfit you choose and love yourself enough to stick with your journey. ❤️ #workoutwednesday#garagegym#sweatymessexpress#21DFX#strongmom#wellnesscoach#FitFaband45#progress#begin#momofteens#aldi#eatreal#dolfin#swimmom#dogmom#healthywife
One of the most important parts of any workout and one of my favorite parts is the stretch at the end of the workout. It feels so good to work the muscles and then feel them stretch back out when it's over. I think that a big part of that is knowing that I pushed myself as hard as I could through my workout and am doing what I need to do to be as healthy as I can for myself and my family!
Oftentimes men run from the daughters especially during puberty and the teen years..afraid of saying the wrong thing, scared of the emotions, or unsure of how to approach her..BE the MAN she needs to speak light into her darkness, "Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love." (1 Cor. 16:13-14) Some men will carry a shotgun to the door before her date but not bring that same weapon to the pits of hell when the enemy attacks her heart..she needs you..Blessings! #christianblogger#christianparenting#jesuschrist
How EVER did this happen? This girl turned my World upside down when she came into it what seems like yesterday...but in actuality was 14 YEARS ago!

I am excited to see what life has in store for you. Live your life my butterfly 🦋One thing I know for certain...you are a gift to this world and anyone that is lucky enough to have you in it! You are funny and kind and thoughtful and giving and passionate and compassionate and smart...you have been given so much!! Use your gifts to change the world 🌎 #14#momofteens#timeflies#flybutterfly#birthdaygirl#shoppingourlittleheartsout
Y'all, are ya with me? I am totally feeling this way. Probably because we are heading into a holiday weekend and the work week is crawling. Probably because I wish I was in CO watching my oldest do her thing. Maybe because my kids are on summer break and all I really wanna do is have a picnic at the pool...either way, I'm just saying!!
Sharing these photos is never easy, especially when I know I've fallen off track.
As many of you know over the last 3 weeks I committed myself to do what is called "The Ultimate Reset", 21 days of cleansing my body from the inside out.
To be honest I was terrified to start. I'll be the first to admit I have a struggling relationship with food. So after a long winter of bad habits this was just the thing I needed to break free of them.
And the results are in... ✨I lost a total of 9 pounds, and a lot of belly bloat!
✨I became more mindful of what I put in my body!
✨I learned to really listen to what my body needed!
✨I learned to love what REAL food should taste like!
Oh yeah, the others lost 20 pounds (10 inches overall), 13 pounds (3 inches off hips, chest, thighs), and 10 pounds (1 3/4 inches off hips), 11 pounds for one, and 12 pounds for another. We are all feeling pretty proud.
The next month will be spent easing back into the real world with this new way of eating and looking at food.
It's an amazing experience for anyone ready to carve out healthier eating habits, STOP looking at their body as the enemy, and START loving it from the inside out.

Countdown to completion: Day 2
This is probably one of the biggest lessons I learned from doing this program is NEVER just assume. Never think you "know what something is going to be like" without actually TRYING IT! .
So often we say "Fuck No" to things without even giving them a chance... but what if you said YES! What's the worst that could happen??
I completely missed the anniversary of The Sorceror's Stone yesterday. But, as a #harrypotterfan , I have been listening to the books on Audible. ☇☇☇ I love these books. What a brilliant storyline through the seven volumes. Are you a fan? #hufflepuff
I'm not a huge fan of yoga.😬 I do it because I know it's good for me. And after starting half marathon training after a 5 year break 😳 this was very much needed today.
I'm sure I'm going to regret signing up for this race in the next several months but I know it will all be worth it in the end.
Are you are runner? Do you also take the time to stretch? And do you participate in races?
#transformationtuesdays - Soooooooo...yeah! 👊🏻 That's me on the left. That image was one that continued to push me forward at the time. I am still proud of it. I wasn't smoking anymore, and I was taking better care of me. Yep - I was also running, but no cross training. 👊🏻Alas, I know I don't look bad. Yet, on the right, there is a change. Can you see it? I can. My face, arms, upper body, thighs, and mid-area. I tried to find the most recent pic I could of me. The image on the right was taken just about two weeks ago. 👊🏻 I had to share this because, sometimes we do not see our own progress. I did when I saw the image in the right just a few days back. I saw it, and I remarked to Damien: "Is that me?!?" 👊🏻 Neither is bad, but one is different than the other. Still...it is time to #makeashift . I am ready for more. I cannot wait for Shift Shop, and I am ready for another kick-arse accountability group. To me, it's all about steps and progress forward. Let's do it! 👊🏻✨😀❤️ #believeinyou#nevergiveup 💪 #alwaysmovingforward
