Get Outside Your Comfort Zone

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” – Neale Donald Walsch I watch my kids grow outside their comfort zones every day. It’s part of growing up and developing into a young adult. But once in adulthood, comfort zones become…well, very comfortable. This year, Lucy is on a competitive volleyball team, with strength … Continued

How to grow into your talents

I recently wrote about the importance of taking the time to apply what you’re learning. Learning is the way to grow as a person and a business owner, but if you’re not actually putting that new knowledge into practice, there’s really no reason for the learning in the first place. The same goes for hobbies … Continued

Vacation with the intent to be active

Vacation with the intent to be active

You don’t need to go away for vacation with the fear you’ll gain weight. I know a lot of people vacation to eat great food, drink great drinks and soak in all the tourist sights. That, or they want to sit and do nothing all day while enjoying some sunshine, water and probably great food … Continued

Sister Love and Body Image

There’s something to be said about getting dolled up and treated like royalty. My sister, Joy, recently entered and won a contest for a sister’s photography session. The photographer was feeling lacking in sisterhood and wanted to honor sisters of all ages. I loved the quality one-on-one time spent with my sister (and the photos … Continued

Be the Light in Someone’s Life

Kindness is one of those things that we forget too often. When we’re angry or frustrated, or just don’t understand someone else’s life or viewpoint, we forget to stop and put ourselves in their shoes. This can lead to misunderstandings and miscommunication that impacts both parties well beyond that difficult interaction. This year, I’m committed … Continued

Enter the Healthy Bod Challenge Contest

When I first started on my journey with Beachbody, it was because I needed something different in my life. I knew I needed to make a change. A 30-minute workout every day and Shakeology is the formula that works for me. But then along came a contest, and my motivation increased. Sometimes an added incentive makes … Continued

How We Defied the Marriage Statistics

Though statistics show that U.S. divorce rates are actually dropping, divorce is still very common. According to The New York Times, those married in the 1980s had about a 47% chance of divorcing, while those married in the 1990s (like Jeff and me) have about a 35% chance of divorce. These statistics still aren’t very … Continued

Don’t Worry About Belly Jelly

I recently posted an inspiring meme on my Facebook page, called Belly Jelly. If you watch, you’ll see that the purpose isn’t to poke fun at imperfections or to spotlight how we look. The video, to me, tells the story of loving yourself where you are, even if you’re on a journey to change. It’s … Continued

My First Decade as a Beachbody Coach

My First Decade as a Beachbody Coach

I could have never imagined the life I have today 10 years ago. Before I joined Beachbody, I was always tired, out-of-shape, overweight and just not feeling at all great about myself. I had a full life. I had the things I’d dreamed of having. But I felt sluggish and had no pep in my … Continued
