Dream Big ~ Beachbody Coaching

Tuesday, April 14, 2015


About 5 weeks ago I followed through with my PASSION and became a Beachbody Coach! And I'm making it public news! Some of you might recognize Beachbody programs such as P90X, Insanity, PiYo, 21 Day Fix, etc (and the list could go on and on). I was honored to be asked to join the incredible *‪#‎girlboss‬ Dynasty* team and Love how they are all welcoming me with open arms. I am driven and dedicated to help you succeed in your health and fitness journey! Beachbody has helped me and I feel it's my duty to give back and help others feel as great as I do.
Why did I become a coach? Good question! After having four babies, I needed to start somewhere. My body just wasn't the same (hello flabby tummy!) and I wanted to get it back. I started with the 21 Day Fix Challenge and fell in love! I became a coach to hold myself accountable. I want to be your accountability partner and I want you to be mine. AMAZING goals are accomplished when you are a part of a motivated team that will NOT let you fail! Having people to depend on and the fact that they are depending on you, is truly a huge motivation to succeed!


I am a work in progress. I do not have a perfect body. I am not a professional fitness trainer. But I AM pushing towards my goals everyday. One day...one workout at a time. I will succeed! wink emoticon
Whether just joining one of my challenge groups to get fit/be held accountable, or coming on as a coach for the discount, or to make it a job/career, there is a way for everyone to better themselves! I am SO thankful for this opportunity!!! I would love for you to join me on this journey too, message me so we can talk about it!

Eat Clean! Have Carrot Cake!

Monday, April 6, 2015

I love carrot cake! What's even better....the cream cheese icing on top of the carrot cake! Oh my!! 
I came across a this carrot cake recipe on a wonderful blog, Amys Healthy Baking and had to try it for our Easter Dessert / my hubby's Birthday cake! We've really been trying hard to eat clean and live a healthier lifestyle, so I am always on the hunt for new recipes that still incorporate the things we love! 

You must try this cake! My family really enjoyed it! Now keep in mind it isn't the sugar heavy, butter and cream loving, fattened up version of carrot cake....this is a healthy treat good for the body, mind and soul! 

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! 

Classic Carrot Cake | from Amy's Healthy Baking

Cake
1 ½ c whole wheat flour (measured correctly)
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp salt
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted and cooled slightly
1 large egg, room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract
½ c maple syrup
¼ c plain nonfat Greek yogurt
¼ c nonfat milk
2 c freshly grated carrots (about 3 medium)
Frosting
8 oz nonfat ricotta cheese
3 tbsp plain nonfat Greek yogurt
2 tbsp agave
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and coat a 9”-square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
2. To prepare the cake, whisk together the flour and next 5 ingredients (through salt) in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut oil, egg, and vanilla. Stir in the maple syrup and Greek yogurt, thoroughly mixing until no large clumps remain. Alternate between adding the flour mixture and milk, stirring just until incorporated, beginning and ending with the flour. (For best results, add the flour mixture in 3 equal parts and the milk in 2 equal parts.) Fold in the carrots.
3. Spread the batter into the prepared pan, and bake at 350°F for 28-31 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack. Cool completely to room temperature before frosting.
4. To prepare the frosting, stir together the ricotta cheese, Greek yogurt, agave, and vanilla in a medium bowl. *(I put mine in my vitamix to het it to smooth consistency fast.) Spread on top of the cooled cake. Let the frosting set for 1-2 hours before slicing and serving. 

Thank you for this wonderful treat Amy!

I have had such a huge response with our first 21 Day Fix Challenge Group that I am super duper excited to announce another start up date of Monday, April 20th!


When I began my journey to a healthier lifestyle, I was very nervous, yet excited, about every aspect of change. Change can be a word that stirs up many emotions for people. Many emotions ranging from fear to happiness. There are many factors that motivate, or scare people from making a change in their everyday lives. After 10 years of letting myself go, and creating bad habits that left me feeling tired, cranky, and just plain disappointed about my body; I decided that enough was enough! I was not going to let these emotions control me anymore. We all get one life, and one body to live it in! It is time to take care of me, and my body, so I can inspire my friends and family to do the same.

So, what is this amazing change that will make you feel so wonderful??

I am not going to lie, it does take some investment of time and money. Two things that we all insist we don't have. Lol! I am here to tell you that I was a poster child for these excuses and utilized them well! However, I had no problem picking up my $4 cup of Starbucks every time I drove by one; no problem ordering pizza, eating out at a restaurant b/c "I was tired and didn't feel like cooking;" no problem sitting on the couch surfing through pinterest or watching a few hours of TV at night before I went to bed! Can anyone relate to this?

21 Day Fix changed our life and I am going to keep going so that it can change yours too! You are just as much my motivation as I want to be yours!

The 21 Day Fix Challenge Pack provides 21 days of 30 minute workouts, simple meal planning techniques complete with portion control containers, support and friendship from others going through the same struggles and successes, your free personal Beachbody Coach (Me), and the best secret daily meal...Shakeology! Shakeology is my sweet treat everyday! The 70+ nutritional benefits that it provides you with are totally worth the $4/day investment. (I used to spend more than that for a daily fast food lunch!)

If you want to see, and feel the rewards of a healthy lifestyle then join me! Make the Change!

Sign up for the Free Beachbody Membership and I will send you more details to get the tools you need for our 21 Day Fix Challenge beginning April 20th!

Whole Wheat Banana Muffins - Tasty and Clean!

Monday, March 23, 2015

A Sweet Treat for My Little Monkeys...


Since we've started the 21 Day Fix Challenge it really has opened my eyes to the crazy amount of preservatives and sugars that we put into our bodies by purchasing convenient snacks! Yikes! So when my little darlings wanted a snack, I noticed we had some overly ripe bananas and that inspired me to who up some tasty Banana Muffins! Just the right amount of natural sweetness from the Pure Maple Syrup that we get from Oak Lodge and a little extra chocolate treat for the top! Delish!


Whole Wheat Banana Muffins
Makes 12 Muffins (or 36 mini muffins)

Ingredients*
1½ cups whole-wheat flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of sea salt
¼ teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup plan greek yogurt
⅓ cup pure maple syrup
2 very ripe bananas (the riper they are the sweeter they'll be)
½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
60 dark chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin pan with foil or silicone
liners and set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder.

Make a well (hole) in the center of the flour mixture and drop in the eggs,
butter, and syrup. Mix with a fork until it just comes together and set aside.

In a small bowl, peel and mash the two bananas together with the back of a fork.
Carefully fold the bananas and walnuts (if using) into the muffin batter and
distribute evenly into the 12 muffin cups (or 36 mini muffin cups). Sprinkle 
a few dark chocolate chips in top of each muffin (if using.) 

Bake until they begin to brown on top and a toothpick comes clean when inserted in the
center, about 20 to 22 minutes for regular sized muffins or 12 to 14 minutes
for mini muffins.


*I recommend using organic ingredients if you can.

Enjoy!
