A Life on the Couch...

Well this is a little bit embarrassing... I didn't start this blog to let it sit there and not write but that's exactly what has happened.  Shame on me!

Ok, ok I've been a little busy (I know, who hasn't right?) excuses aside though, while I've been getting my menopause down to a science, like literally, I've been having so much fun coaching people on their health journey along side me.  A group of friends and I have created a community of likeminded people who just want to start feeling better again!  People who are tired of living and watching others from their couch, viewing everyone else life from their smart phones and wishing that was them!

So here's the thing... Some of you may know this and some may not but once I learned that I was going through menopause and had started at age 37 (gasp! - I know). I was very nervous when I started going to my Internal Medicine Dr. and getting BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy).  I mean, yes nervous for obvious reasons because who wants to think about a metal rod being inserted into your butt CHEEK (ALL CAPS - not inside your bottom, lol), not this girl! I mean it's large enough that pellets get dropped down the rod and inserted into you Gluteus Maximus and then closed up with either surgical tape or stitches if it starts to bleed.  So ya, needless to say I was very nervous when I looked into this, lol!

But as scary as it was to think about the pellets, I was probably more nervous to list out the supplements that literally have kept me afloat.  All I kept thinking at the time was, what would my Dr. say to me?  Would she tell me to stop taking them?  Would they be ok to take with the supplements that she had in mind for me? I just couldn't handle someone taking me off what I knew had kept me functioning for so long because nothing had ever helped like this.

Well, she surprised me!  She said that they have been very helpful and being that most of my hormones were so low, and next to nothing in my adrenal glands that it explained to her how I was able to function for so long without any modern medicine. In her 30 years as a physician, I was her worse case she said!  I was in so much shock to hear this because of how young I was when I went to her.  She said it was as if I had been burning the candle at both ends of the stick and there was nothing left.  Talk about wake up call, slap in the face, ice bucket challenge or whatever you want to call it... I was in S H O C K! BUT here's the thing, I was thrilled because I know how good I feel on all of my products BUT to have my Dr. approve them and give me the thumbs up with them was even more reassuring to me that my company is doing all the right things!

This is me in just 10 short days! It's very hard to capture energy 
and I really wasn't looking to lose much 
but this is what 8 pounds looks like in 10 days!
Most importantly my energy, happiness and
over all excitement for life is BACK!

You may or may not be going through what I have but this leads me to some questions for you...

Are you tired, unmotivated, crabby, can't sleep at night, find yourself wanting to take naps or just all around sluggish?

Are you living life from the couch?

Do you wish that you had the energy that others have?

Do you look in the mirror and not recognize the person you see staring back at you? 

Do you want to change your life but don't know where to start?

Have you gained weight but don't know where to begin?

Gone are the days that I use to feel just like this and I am so happy now because I don't recognize that old version of me any longer.  And yes for me, I am dealing with menopause but that doesn't mean that YOU have to be dealing with it to get for me to help you.  I never want to go back to that unhappy feeling again and that is why I am passionate about helping others (men and women) get to a place in their lives where they can feel and look their best again! 

This handsome guy right here is my husband! Just look at what's possible in 80 days!
"I sat there and stared at this side by side picture for 5 minutes in disbelief. I knew that I was dropping the weight but until you see yourself next to your old self it's crazy what you can accomplish. I didn't start working out until day 70 of my program because I needed to drop the weight to get the energy to get into the gym. This program is easy, anyone can do it." - Adam

I do not offer a magic pill but what I do offer is a very simple program with a support group of fantastic people who have all gone through what you are experiencing as well.  My program offers:

  • Top of the line products to get your body feeling better than ever
  • Meal planning
  • Grocery guide
  • Quick to the table recipes 
  • Virtual coach with fitness tips and great snack ideas
  • Group motivation
  • One on one coaching

And even with all of this support you still have me guiding you every step of the way! I have programs that cost less than the average person spends on a daily cup of coffee.  I coach my clients for free and make sure that they can get to a life that is enjoyable again.  Why would I offer this?  The reason why I do this is because I was once where you are right now and someone who cared enough reached out to me to help me and now it is my life’s purpose to help others just like I was helped.

This is Heather! A beautiful Mama of 7!!!! "In less than 3 months this is what she has  accomplished! “As a busy mom of 7, a wife, and having a full-time job I stopped caring for myself. It got to the point where I had no energy to keep up with my kids, and I became extremely self-conscious with the way I looked. I decided enough was enough. I needed to take care of myself so I can be here for my family. I started the program with the hope of becoming healthier and gaining back my self-esteem. I realized very quickly this wasn’t the normal diet fad. It’s all about making a lifestyle change that you are able to stick to long after the 80 days. Since beginning my journey, I’ve been working out consistently 5 days a week. I never felt like I was deprived of food. Not to mention the amazing support of teammates and family. I still have a ways to go, but I am happier and healthier than I have been in a very long time.” - Heather

If any of this sounds like it’s for you or maybe you know a loved one who needs help, I would be honored to coach you through your journey or theirs.  

This is my good friend Darrin who did an incredible job in such a short amount of time! 
 "I can't believe I lost 27 pounds and 10 inches in just 24 days! So stoked to go into summer looking and feeling great! - Darrin

So give it up to Ken and hear what he had to say! “I started out at 246-½ lbs with the 24 day challenge. I learned healthy eating habits and kept the challenge up for six months. Stripped a lot of fat off. Now I’m starting the performance elite phase at 184 lbs.” - Ken

And give it up to Lori, just like all moms we have busy schedules with kids and everything else. but there's nothing better than when your family is proud! "Having your kids tell you they are happy to have their happy mom back is better than any of it!" - Lori
