How to stay on track while you’re traveling

I travel a lot more than usual now that I’m free from my 9-5 (see more details here). One of the hardest things about traveling is that it gets me all off schedule fitness wise. However, I have figured out a way to not ruin all of my progress or fall off the wagon while out of town.

NOW HIRING

I’m expanding my team of coaches. I take coaches with all types of goals (financial or just plain finding their purpose, part time and full time, etc). And my door is always open to discuss my business with anyone interested… BUT… I have a very specific type of coach that I am currently looking for.

I am looking for my “Fab5” for the month of July. These 5 coaches are the ones with BIG plans. Who want to do this full time. Who want to not just survive, but THRIVE. I want people who dare to dream BIG. Who want to grow this business to change lives (their clients, AND theirs).

With this program you’ll get an accelerated coach basics course (14 days vs 30) as well as weekly group video chats, 1 on 1 calls and daily check ins.

To be in my fab 5 there are a few requirements:

  • Must want to launch your business quickly with no excuses
  • Want to make a real income, not spare or extra money
  • Ready to leave your comfort zone because you DESERVE MORE

And I also have a preference for people that are mad.

Yes. Angry. Mad.I want the people who look around at their lives and think… I deserve more than this. My family deserves more than this. My kids deserve more than this.ย  I want mommas that are rushing back to work after ‘maternity leave’ still leaking milk and waiting for their ab muscles to come back together. I want two income households who are still living paycheck to paycheck. I want stay at home moms juggling with 1 car and limited income but daycare costs more than their salary would be going back to work. I want college grads who are struggling to find work and pay student loans. I want people going to work each day feeling like they’re living a lie – like they don’t fit in – like they never will. I want the person leaving at 8 PM to finish the work that someone leaving at 5 PM got the bonus for.

That’s who I want. The angry people.

Because I was one of those angry people. And once you have that fire… you can accomplish great things.

If this is you that I’m looking for, apply here!

Don’t like to drink water? Well – eat it then.

Ok. So yal be complaining, first of all.

I hear the weirdest stuff. First I hear “Oh, I don’t wanna drink my calories!” about drinking a nutritional shake. Then I hear “Ugh I just can’t drink no more water!”

So yal don’t wanna drink calories but you also don’t wanna drink water. Ok. Whatever. You literally need water to lose body fat. The reaction that shirnks fat cells requires water to happen. Also – the signals your body send when you’re thirsty are very similar to the signals it sends when you’re hungry – so you’ll over eat if you don’t drink enough water. Your workouts will suffer. You’ll have headaches. You put yourself at risk for UTIs and kidney stones. ISSA ENTIRE MESS. So you should drink enough water. Which means 1/2 your body weight in oz of water or 100 oz a day – whichever is greater.

Anyways, I just do what I ask – so heres some foods high in water to help yals ole dehydrated behinds get that 100+ oz a day in.

80 day obsession full results

This post is officially 2 months late but it is what it is lol. In the meantime we have opened an entire training studio location, traveled state and county lines, and my team size has doubled. So I’ve neglected blogging but I’m working on it.

I’ve already covered most of my thoughts on the program. Basically the results are LIT and if I followed the meal plan for reals id be beyonce by day 80. I wasn’t as dedicated as I should have been. I also was stressed trying to fit in a preworkout meal and an hour workout each day. I’m spoiled by 30 min workouts.

BUT almost everyone who went to Mexico had just finished their 80 days and we were ALL baddies ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿพ

Riviera Maya!

I’m behind as heck on posting blog content so I’m going to be pumping it out at lightening speed. First and foremost, a recap of my trip to Riviera Maya with hubby free of charge with my business ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿพ

Guys, it was a trip of firsts. I’d never had a stamp on my passport (only left the country for cruises in the past). I’d never left my son overnight with anyone other than Brian (he stayed with my parents). I’d never had a professional massage at a spa! Never met Autumn Calabrese! And of course never worked for a company that offered me and my family all expense paid trips once a year โค๏ธ

When I was first offered this trip I planned on taking Beezy. I was still working full time and honestly didn’t think I’d really be quitting my job at the end of the year. But hell now here I am! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. It was 3 weeks before the trip when I looked at Brian and said “… should we go alone?”

It took a lot of soul searching but I knew I needed to do this for our marriage. At first my in-laws planned to come up from MS and stay with LB. but they were hit by a surprise TORNADO 4 days before we flew out. luckily my parents stepped in so we didn’t have to cancel the trip.

I worried a lot on the way there, but once we were at the resort and I face timed him I knew he was having a good time and being spoiled. I only cried once – Saturday when Brian was out golfing and I had a minute alone to think and really miss beezy. I love that boy.

A typical day at the rest consisted of sleeping in as late as we want (aka 7:30 AM ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚) and waking up to order room service which was AWESOME and even better when it’s free. Some days we went for a run or to the live workouts hosted by either Autumn, Chris Downing or Joel Freeman. After that we could grab free, already blended shakeology for a post workout.

Then heading out to the pool to meet up with my team and their spouses. Sitting out there soaking up sun and having drinks until hunger struck. Then heading to one of the awesome restaurants to eat or eating at the grill at the pool.

Next would be a shower then getting dressed up for a nice dinner and then night life.

This was NOT a training event like some of the other trips I’ve been on so there weren’t any classes or required work to do. We literally just chilled. We did have a scheduled massage one day and I had earned a photo opp another day, and there were some celebration ceremonies but other than that everything was unplanned and relaxing. And did I mention free?

Anywho! Nobody cares yal just want pics so here you go! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

If you want to learn more about earning FREE trips, AND a full time income from home – fill this form! I’d love to talk to you about what I do as a coach and how I’ve grown this business to support my family and give me freedom and time with them.

PS – body by 80 day obsession. I’ll be posting full results (2 months late๐Ÿ˜ฉ) soon!

2B mindset

I am so excited about a program coming out in the very near future!! This program will take the focus off of exercise (which is important for having a body that can move and function freely, BUT we aren’t all ready to start it all at once) and onto FOOD.

Let’s be honest. No one go to a place that they aren’t happy with their weight by eating healthy and not exercising. It’s our diets that get out of control first and foremost. And the first thing we try to do is DEPRIVE ourselves. We count calories, we limit intake, and for some people – it works. But for the rest of us? We cycle on and off of those plans because depriving yourself is HARD.

But there will be none of that with this program. No calorie counting at all and you do not have to incorporate exercise until you’re ready. And guess what? Once you master the 2B Mindset, itโ€™s yours for life. Losing the weight and keeping it off will be second nature โ€” it will be your new reality โ€” and food will forever remain an enjoyable part of your life.

This new program was designed by Illana Muhlstein, R.D. Nutritionist. If anyone has fought the battle, she has. Sheย is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist-the highest standard in the field of nutrition. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Maryland, sits on the prestigious Executive Leadership Team for the American Heart Association, and leads the Bruin Health Improvement Program at UCLA.

Ilanaโ€™s early inspirations were the knowledgeable Registered Dietitians that sheโ€™d met every summer at fat camp. Once she finally had the chance to become one herself, she never hesitated. Using everything she learned, she was able to personally lose 100 pounds. Sheโ€™s built a thriving private practice in Beverly Hills, and has helped hundreds of people lose weight happily-and keep it off. Now sheโ€™s revealing all of her tried and true weight-loss secrets with the launch of The 2B Mindset program.

This program drops May 2, 2018. If you want to be one of the first to try it out with me – fill out this form! Make sure to select “2B Minset Nutrition Education” from the dropdown.

80 Day Obsession Results – day 22

IIght yal I’m on day 22 of 80 day obsession and I haven’t updated ya because a biah been busy.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

Let me tell you first and foremost – I have NOT been good on the meal plan. I’m always missing meals or eating the wrong things at the wrong times. But I’ve been killing the workouts and trying to clean it clean.

Oh and the vegna plan? That’s cancelled. I couldn’t. I gave it a good shot but I didn’t want to keep cooking 3 separate meals (1 for me, 1 for LB, 1 for hubs) and I was always cheating. So I figured a perfect plan means nothing if you can’t stick to it and went to the regular plan instead. I’m still doing mostly meatless options.

Anywho, let me let the pics do the talking. These are from last week. I didn’t even want to take these because I thought I’d done so bad with food it would be terrible. But I took them because I noticed how much easier it was to get that same outfit on for my workout.

Of course the waist is stealing the show but my triceps and shoulders also made a HUGE come up

And for an update – here’s a pic from today. Let me tell you – I’m in my PJs and this is a non-supportive tank top (not a bra) soooo don’t mind the saggage LOL. You know I nursed 14 months.img_9907

I’m crazy hype about my results thus far. Youknow I’m an apple shape, so shrinking my middle is a challenge. Literally all my fat goes there. My little booty? solid muscle. Hard as a rock. LOL!

I don’t like working out for almost an hour most days. But you know what I do love? doing a whole day dedicated the glutes. It’s taken my lil booty from ‘it’s got potential’ to ‘iight girl I see you!’02a4530f-bd03-4d99-8c86-c14b7dfad2ce

I acutlaly used to hate these gym shark pants because they showed off my belly pudge and made my booty look flat. But they may be my favorite pants by day 80!

You should probably get your booty into my group. Hit me up and lets talk. Fill out this form for more info.

You better hurry before I complete my transformation to total baddie and I’m too good to answer. LOL! jk jk <3. But do hurry. Summer is coming.
