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.  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!

Hair color

Alright finallyyyy have my hair to the color I wanted. Before (first pic) was just the first step.

I was in Charleston and needed to have the color finished up (for my own sanity) so of course i went to Kara Fuller (Charleston WV) and told her “idk what I want. Here’s some pics of what I like. Here’s what I don’t like”. And she went in.

I’m no professional so take this with a grain of salt but it looked to me like she did heavy foil highlights in the front, less in the back and then some random highlights throughout without foils. She feathered in the color to make the transition look more natural. Then I sat under the IR light for 15 mins and she rinsed and toned. That’s it.

Whole process from start to finish took like 1.5 hours. To do ANYTHING to my hair in that little time is a miracle. I set it in twists after the color and unleashed last night because I couldn’t wait.

Color is exactly what I wanted with so much depth and dimension and not orange anymore lol. And my curls don’t seem damaged from either process – though it always seems a little drier the next day so I will do a deep conditioning mask tonight before I set it again (because I took down damp twists last night so this set won’t last long)

Alright, I should be done stressing yal out for a bit. Maybe. I mean I still use sulfate shampoos and ecostyler gel so you never know what ima do. Clearly I’m a rebel.

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 👌🏾

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 💃🏾

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 ❤️

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! 😂😂😂. 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 😂😂😂) 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! 😂😂😂

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 late😩) soon!

80 day obsession – half way!

Ok I’m more than halfway but these pics are from day 42. But anywho – I love it so far. I mean it isn’t perfect for me and I haven’t been perfect at it – but I love the results!

Pros –

– Meal plan is LEGIT AF. Tells you exactly what time to eat what and I think that helps. Way bigger changes than eating whenever I can fit it in. And I notice better workout performance when I eat the preworkout meal. Less soreness with post workout meal too.

– Booty day! An entire day of glutes. No, not leg day – that’s a separate day. I love it. My booty has grown so much. Honestly, look

– different workout each day. I never have to watch the same video with the same convos or jokes more than once which is nice. Keeps it fresh.

Cons

– workout length. 40 mins – 1 hour. Guys this is my own laziness. I like 30 min programs. But I know I need to do more for more results.

– meal plan. Yes it’s a pro and con. Was a con at first because I refused to follow it 😂😂😂 now it’s a pro. It’s a bit intimidating at first.

…. that’s really it!

I love the moves. Some of them I’ve never even seen before! Definitely a fun program and worth every second because the results I and the others doing this are seeing are so amazing.

February Fitness Challenge!

Excited to announce that I’m enrolling for my February fitness challenge. In February we all celebrate Valentines day, so in honor of that our group will focus on self-esteem and self love. Too often women focus on working out to get rid of something bad about their body (excess fat, love handles, cellulite, etc) or as a punishment for something they ate. This “do it or you’ll be hideous” attitude is so discouraging over time! And don’t even get me started on these starvation or “no carb, no cheat day, no nothing” fasts/diets. We treat our bodies like we hate them! And in return they get tired, broken down, they start cravimg any and everything – and we give up!

I like to look at exercise and eating healthy as a celebration of my body, and something I do out of love. When you exercise because you love your body, and eat foods that it needs because you want to treat it well – it’s so much easier to stick to a plan and be healthy! No more starving, no going days without eating food groups or even food in general. No more. Through this group we will focus on of course reaching our fitness goals, but also treating ourselves as good as we would treat one of our best friends. No negative talk, no looking in the mirror tearing ourselves apart, none of that.

You’ll have all the tools you need to kick off your fitness journey – workouts, meal plans, and more support than you can even imagine.

I have 10 spots open for new clients, first come first serve. If you’re wanting to go on this journey with me, please fill out this form.

It was my genetics?

My parents and grandparents are/were diabetic (type 2) and I was diagnosed as prediabetic at 24 with an A1C of 6.0. And a lot of people I knew and healthcare professionals told me it was because I was genetically predisposed to diabetes.

They didn’t ask about my diet or lack of activity. I sat at a desk all day for work, didn’t work out, and ate fast food at least 3x a week. I love carbs and sweets too. I was depressed. We moved, had 2 mortgages and I was always alone with just LB.

So I ate and layed around.

See here’s the thing about what I was told. It took all of the pressure and responsibility off of me and blamed my genetics. It made me feel like I was just dealt a poor hand. I mean, plenty of people had a worse diet than me and were NOT prediabetic.

It’s really a crazy way that we as a society look at things. Lets say I drove 95 on the interstate every single day (trust me living in Kentucky a lot of people do). And my parents had both lost their legs in car wrecks (God forbid). and then one day I wrecked and broke both legs and may have to amputate. Am I genetically predisposed to losing my legs? To car wrecks?

Why not? It’s the same logic – plenty of people drive 95 and don’t wreck and lose their legs.

See how stupid that sounds? I wasn’t predisposed to diabetes anymore than I’d be predisposed to a car wreck. The people who weren’t affected like I was are like the people who didn’t wreck – THEY’RE LUCKY. Favored. Blessed. Whatever term you want to use. They’re the exception. I’m the rule.

One day I finally got up off my butt and worked out. I changed my diet. And crazy how my A1C went down to 5.5, no longer prediabetic.

I’m no doctor and I can only speak for myself. But the only thing wrong with me was my habits, not my genetics. My genes control a lot of things – my gender, my skin color, my fabulous hair, my body shape, my big teeth.. I could go on and on. But they were not going to make me diabetic. I was going to make me diabetic.

And if you’re like I was, before you check your genetics – check your habits.
