Why “hustle & grind” doesn’t get you the results you want

Why “hustle & grind” doesn’t get you the results you want
Here’s something you might be surprised to know if your social media feed is anything like mine.
 
The “hustle and grind” is NOT the fastest path to your results. 
 
In fact, for some people, it’s a path to NOWHERE.
 
Especially if you have responsibilities … like a career, family, home, pets, etc.!
 
It’s true: the idea of “go hard or go home” might be exciting at first. 
 
But a few weeks later? Not so much.
 
This way of thinking can leave you feeling tired, sore, and worn out! All that stress can actually work AGAINST you.
 
There IS a better path.
 
  • Listening to your body’s cues
  • Making small, sustainable changes that add up to BIG results
  • Creating new healthy habits that actually support your lifestyle
  • Doing properly programmed workouts that help you reach your goals and GIVE you energy, not drain it
  • Eating the right combo of nutrient-dense foods that support your body’s needs AND goals (and doesn’t make you feel deprived)
  • Integrating lifestyle tweaks (sleep, stress management) that keep your hormones and body in balance. 
The best thing? It’s about building a healthy lifestyle that you can follow (and enjoy!) for years to come.
 
I can show you how I can help, just like we’ve helped hundreds of people to reach their wellness goals. 
 
My upcoming 28-Day Total Body Transformation Challenge is perfect if you've been wanting to make changes, but just don't know where to begin. You'll receive a step-by-step plan to create new habits that will stick. All done with my coaching and a supportive community of people just like you! We start September 13th. You can look up the details HERE or just reach out to chat. 
 
Looking forward to connecting,

P.S.
Here's what one participant said about the 28-Day Challenge, "I love this challenge. I learned 
that even if I don't stick to the plan 100% of the time I can still lose weight. I am proud to announce that I have lost a total of 10lbs during this challenge. I'm well on my way to my wellness goals." Randi R.

10 Benefits of Moving your Body!

10 Benefits of Moving your Body!
I want to talk about a “feel-good” topic that’s finally becoming a mainstream trend.
 
It’s BODY POSITIVITY … which basically means loving your body right this very minute – without any ifs, ands, or buts.
 
Because, frankly, your body is a miracle!
 
It deserves your care and respect because it works so hard to support you each and every day.
 
And one of the BEST things you can do to show your body that love and support is to MOVE it – regularly and intentionally. That’s why this month we’re taking a deep dive into all the wonders of MOVEMENT and how it impacts pretty much EVERY aspect of your life!
 
When you exercise regularly, your body just plain FEELS and FUNCTIONS better from the inside out.
 
BONUS: You do NOT have to spend hours a week working out to get these payoffs.
 
Here’s a list of just some of the many benefits:
 
  1. A longer life because you are less likely to die early from chronic disease. 
  2. Less risk of heart disease, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers (including colon, breast, lung, and uterine).
  3. Better mood, less stress and anxiety, and improved mental health.
  4. Improved brain health (both the structure AND how it functions).
  5. Stronger bones and muscles.
  6. Better sleep (both quality and quantity).
  7. More satisfying sex life.
  8. Lower risk of falling down.
  9. Improved weight control.
  10.  Easier time quitting smoking. 
Doesn’t your amazing body deserve all that!? (ANSWER: Yes it does!)

The Magic Formula for Success....

The Magic Formula for Success....
Are you ready for the secret to body transformation success? (This secret actually contributes to almost EVERY kind of success.)
 
It’s that the BASICS will get you (at least) 90% of the results you are looking for!
 
The quality & quantity of foods you eat … how much & what kind of movement you do every day … how much sleep you get …  how much stress you’re under.
 
They all add up to SUCCESS.
 
“The big secret in life is there is no secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you’re willing to work.” – Oprah Winfrey.
 
The best thing about all of this is this: every single one of the basics impacts the OTHER basics.
 
They work synergistically to not only help you FEEL BETTER, but also reach your goals.

  • Makes it easier to keep your nutrition on-track.
  • And around it goes!
Getting your basics in line helps you feel vibrant, focused, refreshed, and motivated.

How to Make 2021 Amazing: Free Fresh Start Workbook!

How to Make 2021 Amazing: Free Fresh Start Workbook!

If you spend any time at all on social media, you’ve seen at least one meme describing how scary, chaotic, or awful 2020 has been.
 
And yes, it absolutely has been a year for the history books. 
 
That being said, among the many lessons of 2020, it has brought to the forefront two very important things:
 
#1. What TRULY matters in our life. 
 
#2. That the basics and fundamentals are EVERYTHING.
 
Our health and the people we care about became front and center this year. 
 
Pair that up with how we’re spending our time, what we’re CHOOSING to focus on, and our personal daily habits …
 
and it all adds up to determine the quality of our lives. 
 
Talk about clarity, right? What a powerful lesson to bring us into 2021!
 
This leads me to some eye-opening questions I have for you (questions that I have been asking myself the past several weeks) …
 
How can you double-down on your basics to make 2021 the best year possible?
 
What do you REALLY want … and what steps can you take to make them happen?
 
*Increasing your energy to play with your kids/grandkids?
*Making yourself a priority?
*Making better food choices?
*Getting strong and fit?
*Creating a chemical-free home?
*Starting a side hustle?
 
When you lean into your basics, it’s like giving yourself instant permission to live your best life. It’s incredibly liberating!
 
What those basics look like will be different for each of us. 
 
For me, I’m personally focusing on: 
 
  1. Offering more valuable content on wellness for my followers
  2. Growing myself through personal development so I grow as a leader
  3. Creating more awareness of the toxic chemicals hidden in products
  4. Showing more people how to create a financial safety net for their family
 
Your basics might be different. What will YOUR priorities be?
 
If you’re ready to start fresh and make 2021 an incredible year, I’m here to help you come up with a plan that fits YOU, YOUR LIFE, and YOUR GOALS.
 
As my gift to help you make 2021 your best year yet, I’m offering you my free eBook…Goal Setting and Fresh Start Workbook! Grab it here!
 
Let’s make 2021 a year for the record books (in a completely different way!).
 
Have a healthy day!
