Badass Busy Moms - Virtual Boot Camp

Why I Believe a BUSY MOMS BOOT CAMP is NECESSARY...

1. I've learned that everything in moderation is a hell of a lot more gratifying than depriving myself and being so strict that i am hiding in a corner eating cookies.
2. I've learned that I am more patient and understanding when I make myself a priority.
3. I've learned that it is not selfish when I have some me time. My time varies, but it is worked into my schedule. Everyday.
4. I've learned that in order to grow, you must fall sometimes.
5. I've learned that perfection is a myth.








Nothing says a BUSY MOMS BOOT CAMP like Beachbody On-Demand? 
What is Beachbody On-Demand?

March into Health!! Support & Accountability Group - March 13th



Can you believe we are already into the month of March???


The year is already flying by! Before you know it, summer will be right upon us!!!


How are you feeling about that? Is it giving you anxiety? Are you worried about wearing a bathing suit? Have you found yourself looking in the mirror and wondering who the hell is this person starring back at you? Like where did you go?? Where did the fun loving confident woman disappear too?? This tired, depressed, out of sort’s person - could this really be YOU!?


Well that was me - 3 years ago this month!! How did I let myself go? Where did those 80 + pounds come from? This self-loathing, when did that start? This hiding and lack of confidence, this I will beat you to the punch and make fun of my fat before you do....when did this happen?


Ladies – STOP BEING NEGATIVE WITH YOURSELF!!


You are beautiful.

You are strong.

You have done amazing things.

And damn it you deserve to feel confident, sexy as hell, and comfortable to rock whatever damn bathing suit you want to!!!






It is truly time to stop the negative self talk. It’s time to take your life back. It’s time to find the time to make yourself a priority and place emphasis on your health and fitness because that is how you boost confidence, your energy and your overall mood!!

I have heard from so many moms "Once you have kids, you no longer put yourself first" "My body has been stretched and pulled, there is no way I'm getting any shape back, except for a pumpkin shape" "I have too much going on, I cannot possibly fit one more thing on my plate" "I have no support system"

Tough love time...

These are crutches & excuses you use to keep you stuck in the same place, to continue to give fear a voice in your head. You have spent so much time listening to the negative voices in your head; you have spent so much time convincing yourself that you can't do something; that you are not allowing yourself the amazing opportunity to TRY AND CHANGE!

Believe me - i have been there, done that, and fight everyday not to go back. Have there been slips? Hell yes. Did i quit? HELL NO! Did i have to change course, refocus, and start again? Yes! The beauty of it - the amazing thing about journey's - it's YOUR journey, and you can twist and turn until you get to your goal!


3 years ago, I was fighting to start my health and fitness journey, fighting to start my virtual health & fitness coaching business. I had to face A LOT of demons – that some days I was not ready to deal with. I had to comes to terms with a failing marriage, a job that I loathed, I disliked myself so intensely, I focused on every negative piece of my body, I had zero confidence.


I would cry almost daily, look at my clothes that didnt fit, get upset and depressed and eat some more cookies, looking for someone else to show me my worth. It was a vicious cycle.



I didn’t love the skin I was in, I didn’t feel good, I didnt have a support system. I had to make a change. I was introduced to clean eating, Beachbody’s fitness programs, and Shakeology for the first time through a friend on Facebook. I joined a support and accountability group because I had no idea how to change. I didn’t have the money to go to the gym, to get a trainer, a nutritionist and pay for childcare. But I did have a living room that I could work out in before my son woke up, a DVD player to play the workouts on and the 100% drive and determination to change.




I can say that because of my coach, the support of the challenge group and the other women in the group, for all the love and support i received even when I fell "off the wagon" I truly have found a way to love the skin that I am in! I have earned the stretch marks, I have earned the saggy skin, and the little imperfections. I have earned the ability to love myself and help other momma's love themselves too!!! They are a part of who I am.



Does any of this sound like a place you may be in now?

Are you yearning to make a change, and have that support to do so???




Then maybe its time for you to take that leap of faith, trust in the process, allow me to help guide you and finally take that leap of faith and join my next challenge group starting on MARCH 13TH!

I am launching a specific accountability and support group that is targeted towards matching you up and with a fitness program and nutrition guide to meet your needs. I will help walk you through the process of changing your unhealthy habits, creating a more positive mindset, embracing your imperfections and tossing the word diet into the garbage. We are not dieting; we are creating a healthy lifestyle.



Now down to the Nitty Gritty




When does the group start?

~Monday, march 13th, 2017. There will be a week of planning and preparation. The workouts start the following Monday. The group is a 37 day program with the opportunity to continue on for Part 2 and Part 3.

What Do I Need For This Group?

~Each participant is required to have me as their coach. You can create an account here.

~You are required to use a Beachbody fitness program. I will help you to pick the one that best fits your needs. When you fill out the application below. I will contact you and we will go over your needs, your current struggles and then decide the program for you.

~You are required to replace 1 meal a day with Shakeology for the duration of the 5 weeks. I am teaching you how to change your eating habits and I will be giving you the tools to make this a lifestyle change. We are all busy, and we want to have at least 1 meal each day that is quick and easy and isn’t lacking in your nutritional quality. It is my go to meal because honestly there are days that I am so busy that I don’t have time to make a balanced meal!!! And bonus it tastes amazing!!!

~You are required to log into our closed Online Private Accountability Group daily. This is where I am going to share tips, recipes, meal plans, tips to handle eating out, and emotional eating plus improving your body image. We will take your journey one day at a time! I have been through the process. I know when you will want to give up, I know the feelings you will have when you hit a plateau and what situations tend to trigger harsh feelings. There is no more trying to navigate this change on your own. We are in this together.

~My goal is to get you a program that you are excited about, one that you will start and complete. Its not going to do you any good if it just sits on the shelf!

Chicken & Zucchini Poppers



Chicken & Zucchini Poppers

These Chicken & Zucchini Poppers are delicious, and while they may be squeaky clean, they don’t skimp on flavor.

I myself am a Zucchini lover! I love to add them to my stir fry, make little mini pizzas with them - anything! My son on the other hand is not a fan. He doesn't like the texture to them. But i am determined to change his food palate!! If you’re a zucchini hater, you should still give these a try! Grated, you don’t really get much of the squash texture, and they keep the meatballs nice and tender and juicy. And when I gave one to my son - he had no idea there was Zucchini in them and he loved them!!

These make a great side dish, with some delicious Cilantro Avocado Dressing, or you can add them to your spaghetti squash dish with sauce. They are really good with anything!


INGREDIENTS:
2 lb. ground chicken breast
3-4 grated zucchini's (leave peel on) small to medium size (2 large)
1 onion, diced
1 Tbsp cilantro paste
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Optional: (which i added)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp basil
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 cup peppers finely chopped
olive oil, for cooking (or coconut oil, avocado oil, or ghee)



DIRECTIONS:


Toss chicken with zucchini, onion, cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper and optional ingredients if using. Mixture will be a bit wet.

To cook on the stovetop:
Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Scoop meatballs into the pan. Cook 8-10 at a time for about 5-6 minutes on the first side. Flip and cook an additional 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown and the centers are cooked through.

To bake:
Scoop meatballs onto a parchment lined pan. Drizzle a bit of oil over the meatballs. Bake at 400 degrees 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through. If you like, place under the broiler for an additional 2-3 minutes or until browned on top.

Serve with cilantro avocado dressing, guacamole, salsa, or your favorite dip!!
