Week One of The Shift Shop Complete!

I have officially completed one week of the latest program by Beachbody called The Shift Shop!  I will tell you, I consider myself at an advanced level in fitness and these workouts are super challenging.  The cool part is though, that any fitness level can do this program.  Like every Beachbody program, there is someone modifying the movements during the workouts.  I am not afraid or ashamed to admit I have to use that modifier myself!  It just means I now have a goal to master the moves! I am excited to take it into week two and see if I have made any improvements in my speed, agility and strength.  These workouts alternate each day between cardio and strength training.  The cardio focuses on intervals, speed, agility and conditioning.  I am left drenched in sweat and shaking like a leaf afterwards!  The strength training is challenging EVERY SINGLE muscle group in my body I swear it!   Here’s a more detailed look at the SHIFT SHOP  workouts: Speed :25   Jumpstart your cardio

Has Anyone Told You Lately?

Take Care of Yourself First

Have you ever been on an airplane and watched the safety video or demonstration?  They always tell you, in the event that the masks drop down into the cabin, to first put on your own oxygen mask, and then help others put their masks on.  They say this because if you run out of oxygen, you won't have the ability to help anyone, not even yourself. Life works the same way a lot of the time.  Many of us spend countless hours focusing on everyone around us, with very little focus on ourselves.  Think about how much more we can give to those people in our lives when we have more energy, more patience, more endurance and a better mood.  Take care of your body, your mind and your soul.  Today, I want you to begin to fill your own cup, so that you will have something to pour for others. What are you going to do to fill your cup ?

Today is a New Day!

Chicken Crust Pizza

Have you been craving pizza, but don't want all the carbs and fat? Try making a pizza crust out of ground chicken! Here is what you will need:   INGREDIENTS: 1 lb ground chicken Eggs Marinara 1/2-1 cup of fat free mozzarella 1/4 cup of reduced fat Parmesan cheese Turkey pepperoni (or toppings of your choice) 1 tablespoon of onion powder 1 tablespoon of garlic salt 2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning Parchment paper Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, mix the ground chicken, seasonings, Parmesan cheese and eggs.  You can use a whole egg, or two egg whites only.  It is up to you.  You can also add in 1/8 a cup of the fat free mozzarella if you like a cheesy crust. Once the mixture is combined well, place it onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Then, place another piece of parchment paper on top and begin pressing the chicken into the shape of the pizza crust.  The trick to this is to press it as thin and evenly spread as you can w

What is a Mom?

What is a Mom? A mom is nurturing, loving, and caring. A mom is someone who puts her children before herself. A mom has spent many sleepless nights to care for her child. A mom wipes away the tears and is a shoulder to lean on. A mom will drop whatever she is doing to help you out. A mom is demanding in an encouraging and supportive way.  She won't let you give up on your goals and dreams. A mom is the person who believed in you first. So this Mother's Day be sure to show your Mom love and appreciation for all she has done and continues to do for you. Need a gift for Mom or want to treat yourself?

Are You Living Out Your Calling?

I'm curious... When it comes to your work, in what way do you feel or think about it?  Is it a job for you that is a necessity like eating and sleeping?  Is it a career that is a stepping stone for you to another job?  Or is it your calling?  Your work is one of the most important things in your life to you and you are making the world a better place. Many of us would like to be in the third category, but are stuck in the first or second one.  I know I was.  As a nurse, I knew I loved helping people.  I thought nursing was my calling.  Over time, I realized it was a stepping stone into my calling.  I do not regret becoming a nurse.  In fact, it has molded me into the person I am today.  What it has taught me most is how to empathize with others and self discipline.  If you are a nurse reading this, you know the discipline it takes to get through school, become a nurse, and put patients and their family first.  It's hard work!  Hard work, but very rewarding work.   So how di

THIS is what it is all about friends. Changing lives! Loretta's story is so motivating and inspiring... "Some of you may or may not know this, but I a couple of months ago, I was at a rock bottom. I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks, severe migraines and thyroid disorder. I was preparing to have hysterectomy surgery due to some female issues, however, I was at the end of my ropes when it came to my health. But that all changed when someone very special encouraged me to take a chance. . I had been following a friend’s health and fitness journey here on Facebook. I saw the success she was having, and while skeptical I reached out to her to learn more. . After talking with her for a bit I decided to give an online health challenge a chance. I started exercising daily to a super fun country dance program and was really watching my nutrition. I also incorporated an all-natural whole foods meal replacement shake which has helped me decreased my cravings tremendously. . W

Time Freedom

Do you have control of your time? Three years ago I was giving a lot of my time to build someone else's dream.  I was working 12 hour shifts for a large hospital.  I was leaving for work before my daughter woke up and getting home at her bedtime.   I was giving someone else my time on holidays and weekends, and  I was TIRED of it. While I enjoyed helping nurse others back to health, I knew that I so desperately wanted to create an exit strategy so that I was able to have more time freedom.  So I found a way and that was through an online health and fitness business.  After 23 months into the business I was able to replace my yearly nursing salary and I made the decision to become a stay at home Mom Boss! Are you interested in learning more about how you can create more time freedom in your life?  Would you like to reduce your hours at your place of employment or even work towards replacing your current job?  Or maybe you love your job and you would like to supplement your cur

April Girl Boss Mentorship

Do you wake up every morning EXCITED to get to work?   Are you engaged in your work? Does your occupation line up with what you enjoy? Are you following your passion? I can tell you that I answered YES to all of those questions.  Did you?   I wake up every day excited to encourage others.  My job is to teach women how to live a healthier lifestyle through good nutrition, exercise, and personal growth.  By doing so, these women are gaining confidence in themselves and are excited to pay it forward to others. There is no magic pill or quick fix with this.  The women I work with are highly motivated, driven, fun, passionate about what they do and truly want to help others.  They understand that it takes work and focus to achieve goals.  They know that if they are consistent, they will see the results they want to see in their fitness and their business.

Skinny fat to FIT and HEALTHY!

On the left I had little to no muscle. My daily nutrition plan consisted of: . 🔷 Skinny Starbucks latte and an apple for breakfast.  🔶 Salad with chicken and a  Diet Coke for lunch. 🔷 Rice cakes and cottage cheese for dinner.  . At the time I had no idea how to eat to be healthy and fit. I just knew I wanted to fit in a size zero and would do WHATEVER it took to stay there. Eating that little calories would lead to binging and then purging. Gosh, it's tough to share that, but I hope that this helps someone!!!  . Thankfully I learned how to sculpt my body and get that fit look! I learned all about portion control nutrition and how to properly FUEL my body for health and physical fitness. I stopped caring what the scale or my jean size was. I learned to love my body for what it was! I learned to love the process of changing it to strong and healthy!! I started to LOVE what I saw in the mirror! Did it happen over night? No.  . But it started with one choice. The choice to make
