What are you willing to do?

Are you doing what you’ve always wanted to do?  Do you have your dream job or are you solely working where you are simply because you think you have to?

I’ve had mine in my head for the past 7 years…yep 7 years…and it’s not what I’m doing right now.  My dream and my goal is to work from home…to be home with my family and to be able to fulfill my passion of helping other women and moms like me.  Ever since my boyfriend and I moved in together I have become more dedicated to making that dream become a reality.  I know I can.  By April 13, 2017 I will make that dream my reality.

What dream are you chasing?  Or are you already there?

Motivation Monday!

So my boyfriend and I were going to start a cleanse… We both really need it and went grocery shopping Friday night.  Saturday was “the day”, we were eating vegetables and some fruit, and water…that’s it…by 3pm I was so angry and starving and he wasn’t doing too well either.  We both decided this was far too drastic.  WTF were we thinking!!???!!??  We agreed on a more balanced lifestyle and we would continue to do it together.

Moral of the story, if you are changing your eating habits DON’T GO DRASTIC!  You will most likely be so miserable that you won’t stick with it.  Start small.  Cutting out fast food and soda for us is HUGE without much sacrifice!  (and think of the $$ we’ll save!)  We have 6 kids between us.  Switching out wheat bread instead of white, exchange 1 or 2 of the sweet snacks we buy for popcorn, no soda options, more natural juices, more salad, they will eat it!  You just have to provide it!  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t really have a problem with our kids eating sweets, I’m not that crazy with it.  But, the healthy options should out-number the sweet options.

Trust me, our angry and hungry versions of ourselves are no good!

6 Days of Opportunity!!

I’ve had lots of moms reach out to me asking about how to get a healthy start to a busy mommas day! My secret….Shakeology! Seriously!! It’s no joke.. I can’t imagine what I would do without it, well I can….I’d either go hungry and gorge at lunch or raid the vending machine!

So…

*Why should I drink shakeology?

*How is it different from other shakes?

*What is in shakeology?

*Is it worth the money?

I was right there with all those questions a year and a half ago when I finally bit the bullet and tried it for the first time as well.  I am so grateful that I did!! Another part? I’m so glad I tried more than one flavor, because what I thought I would love (chocolate), I ended up hating and now love a flavor that I NEVER would have guessed (strawberry!)! I’ve done a TON of research on this superfood shake and it meets all of my needs!!

I understand that it’s hard to figure out what’s good and what’s not anymore with how our world is because EVERYTHING you read contradicts itself . Marketing is out to get you, food labels are confusing, and as consumers we are left with a crazy amount of choices. So I’ve decided to run a 6 day group where you get to try it out and see if it’s something you want to invest in as well as answer all of those questions and more in just 6 days.

Our group starts NEXT Monday, April 18th! Interested? Just comment below and I’ll get the details to you!

*You cannot be a coach or working with one to participate*
