I’m a Beachbody Coach!

Holy moly, I can’t believe summer is here. As you’ve probably noticed, I haven’t been around a whole lot the past few weeks. Between the end of school, the end of the baseball season and a couple of other things, I have barely had time to think straight, let alone get my arse in gear to post.

I promise you that will change. Pinky swear.

The first “other thing” I was referring to is this.

Yep. That’s a super-sexy, not-at-all-hot-in-the-summer walking boot. I was taking Fletcher to the dog park, and he bolted right in front of me while I was walking. I ended up tearing a ligament and chipping two bones.

So that’s awesome.

One of the other “other things” — this one I’m super excited about — is that I just became a Beachbody coach!

I know. Me. A fitness coach. Hilarious, right? If someone would have told me a few months ago that I would be doing this, I would have laughed them out of the room. Because I like to eat. A lot. Mostly things that aren’t good for me. {I have been known to eat chips and dip for lunch, people. True story.} And also, I don’t like to work out. Or sweat. 

So, you know, all the qualities you want in a fitness coach. 

If you want something you've never had, you've got to do something you've never done.

But here’s the thing: I am turning 40 in December. And I am not happy with how I look. It’s not that I think I’m fat, because I don’t, I am just bigger than I want to be, and nowhere near as toned. I realize I have 3 kids, and I will never again have the body I did before that, but I want to get to the point where I’m happy with how I look and feel. 

So when I saw that a friend of mine was running a challenge group for the 21 Day Fix, I decided to give it a shot. And something weird happened.

I loved it.

I wasn’t being forced to eat anything I don’t like, because I will tell you right now, that is the kiss of death for me. I like food way too much to eat stuff that tastes yucky to me. 

The totally crazy thing is that I also really liked the workouts. They’re only 1/2 hour long, so it’s easy for me to fit into my crazy schedule, but they definitely make you push yourself to the limit.

And here’s the other weird thing that happened:

21 Day Fix before and after

21 Day Fix before and after

I lost over 5 lbs and a total of 8 inches — including 2.5″ on my waist

Seriously. In just 17 days. With two cheat days in the middle. 

I mean, I still clearly have a looooong way to go, but I was so happy with my results and so encouraged by the reactions I’m getting from people that I decided to sign up to become a coach. 

I am not going to turn this blog into a health and fitness blog — I loves me my desserts way too much for that — but I will be sharing my progress, coming up with some new healthier recipes {like this one, this one and this one!}, and letting you know about any special groups, sales or promotions we have going on.

If you want to get in better shape, if you want to learn more about the 21 Day Fix or any other Beachbody program, or if you’re interested in being a part of my challenge group that starts on July 6, feel free to visit my Beachbody website or contact me

I can’t wait to share this journey with all of you!
