Skepticism Can Lead to Amazing Opportunity!

Have you ever been SKEPTICAL about something? I sure have, so I thought I would share a story with you of how I overcame a HUGE moment of doubt!
As a personal trainer and national level competitor I would say I have the knowledge to do what it takes to get into great shape. Personally, I never have used many supplements leading up to a competition. I just stuck to the plan - heavy lifting, cardio, and a dialed in meal plan.
Three years ago I was approached with an opportunity to help others with their health and fitness goals online. The more I looked into the opportunity the more it made sense for me to go for it. I was ALREADY helping people online, I just wasn't getting paid for it! But I'll have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first....
I was told the best way to get started as an online health and fitness coach was to order a business starter pack - one month supply of an all natural, whole foods meal replacement shake and a workout program. Say what? I DID NOT need a workout program or shake to help others reach their goals. I thought: "I'm a successful competitor and personal trainer and I know what I'm doing!" But what did I have to lose? So, I decided to go for it. While skeptical, I ordered the pack anyways and waited for it to come in the mail while learning the business basics.
Seeing the package on my doorstep, I'll have to admit I was pretty intrigued and even excited to give the products a try. To my surprise, the shake was the most AMAZING tasting meal replacement I have ever tried and it just so happens to be extremely healthy for you! I learned that it is a very nutrient dense shake fueling my body at the cellular level for just under $4 a day! I also learned that if I wasn't able to get the recommend daily serving of fruit/veggies in, that this shake would cover those nutrients. A competitors diet can be low in fruit, especially when cutting, so this was a huge deal breaker for me. SOLD.
So now I'm sold on the shakes. But what about the workout program? Well I popped it into the DVD player to give it a try and instantly fell in LOVE with the trainer and the style of workout, which was high intensity interval training though kickboxing. I was pretty excited about this, because that meant LESS treadmill time during competition prep!
Pictured below is the year I had my daughter and when I started using these products. I was able to step back on stage as a competitor JUST 7 months after having her. These results are a direct reflection of the products I was using daily, but more importantly because I had an AMAZING team of private support right here on Facebook. The accountability and support in our challenge groups is out of this world.
Flash forward to today. I have been able to help COUNTLESS people reach their health and fitness goals online from the comfort of my home. As a trainer, I am only able to help so many people one on one. There is no greater feeling than being able to make an impact on others lives across U.S. and Canada. I have also formed so many wonderful, positive relationships with like minded people who support my goals and dreams. I am so glad I said yes to this opportunity and because I did, I was able to leave my nursing job after just 2 years into it. I am forever grateful!!!
Are you someone who is looking for a BIGGER way to pay health and fitness forward? This could be the perfect way to do so. I am looking for 5 new people to mentor in the month of January. I would love to chat with you more about this and see if it's a good fit for you. Form below for serious applicants!

Post-Op and Recovery Update

Tomorrow will be one month since the removal of the GIST (Gastro-intestinal stromal tumor) in the lining of my stomach.  Quite a few people have been reaching out to see how I've been feeling and for an update on what's next. First off, the surgery went well.  My surgeon only had to make one incision in the mid-line of my abdomen, because as he started to cut, the tumor was visible immediately.  He said I was a "surgeons dream" since there wasn't much to cut through!  My pain was controlled well post-op and I did not have near as much nausea from the pain meds as I did from the lung biopsy.  They made sure to stay on top of giving me anti-nausea meds and even put a scopolamine patch behind my ear pre-op.  I stayed in the hospital for two nights and then was able to go home.  Recovery went well with no complications.  Over the last month, I've had a lot of emotional ups and downs.  Waiting on the results from the pathology on the tumor was difficult.  O

Surgery Update

If you read my last blog post, I left off with that I was home from my lung biopsy recovering and that the preliminary results showed up as "Organizing Pneumonia".  They did confirm that on the pathology, so my lungs are cancer free!  Praise God! I met with my Surgical Oncologist, Dr. Jeffery  Hardacre which let me tell you is one amazing man.  Not only does he seem highly qualified to care for me, but he has an incredible bedside manner.  He took his time to explain everything to my husband and I and answered all of our crazy questions.  I feel very confident in his hands and he seems to be very optimistic about things.   I am scheduled to go into surgery with him tomorrow for the removal of the gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).  If you haven't heard of this type of tumor, it's not your typical "stomach cancer".  Stomach cancer actually grows inside your stomach and could be a lot worse than a GIST.  This tumor is in the "wall/lining" of

Make Every Day Count

I woke up Tuesday June 18th of this year not feeling right.     Every time I stood up I felt light headed and nauseous. I thought to myself, “here comes baby number 3” and laid back down in bed.     If you know me well, then you know I sent my husband to the store to get a pregnancy test.     I am always taking those things with the slightest inkling that I might be pregnant.     When I saw the test was negative I was surprised.     As the day went on I became more light headed, and my heart was racing just walking from room to room.     This was so far from my norm, so I decided to go to the emergency room.     The doctors ran a few different tests and found that my hemoglobin level was 8.1.    For those of you who don’t know what hemoglobin is - it is the oxygen carrying component of red blood cells. The normal range for a female is 12-15.    This explained my symptoms, but we weren’t sure of the exact cause.    You also don’t normally get a blood transfusion until your leve
