Making You A Priority: Biggest Tip To Rock A Daily Workout


The number one question I get asked all the time is: "how in the heck do you find time to workout daily?" Just a little background, I have 3 kids, 2 of which are home with me all day (well, the now 4 year old does go to preschool 2 days a week but it's only 3.5 hours) I have my own home based Private Music Lessons business teaching piano and french horn lessons and I'm a Team Beachbody Coach, plus I volunteer with the local Municipal Band so we have weekly rehearsals or concerts and I have church obligations, a house to clean, laundry to do, keep my kids from killing each other, keep the hubs happy, make the food for the family and plus I enjoy working in my garden.

The main thing I can tell you is that YOU HAVE TO MAKE YOURSELF A PRIORITY TO GET ALL THIS OTHER STUFF DONE! I feel I can accomplish all this without losing it because I dedicate some of my day to doing what my body and mind needs. And that's exercise. It helps me put the focus on me. I do so much for others. I have to take care of me. It's the whole oxygen mask scenario. Take care of yourself so you can take care of others.
How to make time for your daily exercise? 

1) Pick 1 day a week (I generally do this on Sundays) and plan out your entire week. Write it all out on a calendar. When you wake up, when you get the kids ready, work hours, obligations, church, activities, appointments, sports games/lessons, all of it! Including travel time/get ready time! WRITE IT ALL OUT!

2) Once you do that for the whole week go through each day and look for those small pockets of time from 30-45 minutes. (start small!)

3) Then decide on the time available which would be your best option. Notice: this is before you catch up on your favorite show, binge watch anything or social media scrolling. Make this your priority. Because it is a priority! It is worth it. And you have to commit to that pre-scheduled time. Mark it in your calendar as a non-negotiable. MAKE IT HAPPEN! 

And honestly, once you start doing it consistently, over a good solid 3-4 weeks it becomes a habit. I now know that I am to start my workout daily by 8am! No if and or buts about it! It has to get done because it is 10x harder to get it done later. You made a plan for a reason! STICK WITH IT!

80 Day Obsession BASIC Challenge pack with SHAKEOLOGY

**Just to clarify, you must have Beachbody On Demand, and the workout equipment (resistance loops and sliders). To get the results that I am getting at the speed that I am getting them, I recommend getting the MEGA or COMBO kit. I personally use Shakeology daily, and the pre and post workout mixes on the days that I workout. Don't feel like you have to get a bundle kit to participate, but know that these supplements do help fill in the gaps with your nutrition and help boost your workout performance and reduce soreness with the post workout supplement.

I'm Never Going Back


I love being able to say I will never ever go back to that girl on the left! She used to binge eat 1-2 doughnuts on the way home from the store and hide the evidence from her husband. She ate whatever she wanted because when she had babies she would lose all the extra weight with breastfeeding. She let her weight get totally out of control and didn’t actually believe that she could ever change. 

Today I am fitter, stronger and happier now even though I’m just 3 pounds less than I was from the girl on the left. And I’ve had 3 babies! I finally love my body. I’m not hiding behind my picture smile. I’m smiling because I am literally so happy every day with the amazing things I have accomplished. I’m living my life and no longer have junk food binge sessions that made me want to puke! 


A lot can happen when you change your mindset and decide that enough is enough and that it’s time to make the change. You don’t have to be perfect with your nutrition. You don’t have to exercise every day. But you do have to be consistent wit eating better food choices and consistent with exercising as many days as you can! That’s how you start. Drink more water and eat more veggies and choose to exercise more days than you don’t! (4 days a week is a great habit to start!) Not sure how to get started with your nutrition or fitness? MSG ME! I can help get you started on your journey and you can work one on one with me as your coach! But you do have to put in the work! You are worth this adventure. This investment. This life changing decision. Msg me! Let’s chat!

Overcoming Emotional Eating


2018 is my year for amazing life changing tools being available in my life. First 80 Day Obsession, a way to help me finally enjoy exercise and get real physical changes. Next in May, we get the Mindset change course to help me learn to finally overcome my emotional and stress eating habits. 

Yep. Even with everything I do, the meal plans I follow, I have to work daily to keep my mindset in check. To remind myself that eating the right foods is what my body needs to lose weight. It would be so easy for me to just slip back into my old habits of skipping meals, eat less overall because I am saving my calories for a. Ice dinner out with the hubs or because I over indulged on some sweet or treat. I am literally retraining my brain against the years of “eat less and exercise more” mentality.

You guys, this week I have a new COURSE coming out that addresses ONLY emotional eating (no workouts, they are actually considered extra if you do do them). It's an un-diet that works solely on helping you re-train your brain with what you eat, how you eat and your overall relationship with food.


If you are like me and struggle with emotional eating, grabbing things that are just easier, or just need to work on getting your eating under control before you start a workout program, THIS IS FOR YOU!

This month me and my other teammates are doing a launch party to answer all your questions about this new course! And get you set up and going for success if you are ready to change your eating habits!
THIS LAUNCH GROUP IS INFORMATION ONLY. Want to learn more about it, curious if it is the right fit? Check out the launch group. No obligation. Click HERE to request to join our Un-Diet Launch Party to learn more about the course! (Be sure to say Becky Allen or Connect The Dots Ginger when asked who invited you!)
