The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 11

I am over half way through the Ultimate Reset!!!!!!

You won’t believe something I’ve decided since about day 7…..drinking coffee MIGHT be a thing of the past for me!!??!! I know. I’m like significantly known for being everything coffee. But once I got over my withdrawals I realized how much I naturally feel better without it!?!?

Aside from green tea or my unicorn blood — I am also going to stay away from anything caffeinated at this point.  Ive fallen in love with Teeccino though!!

I’ve also resolved for the next 6 months I’m going to plan out in FULL DETAIL & PREP allllll of my meals eating at least 3-5 vegan meals each week.

You never think it’s possible but ITS TOTALLY POSSIBLE for you too!! The first 5 days were hairy I won’t lie.  Not because of what I could or could not eat, but the feelings associated to not eating my emotions, the actual aches from detoxing, lack of energy while my body was releasing years of toxins and the pains of change.

Overall the food is good minus a few choices like seaweed, tempeh, and mashed garbanzo beans….I am full and not hungry throughout most of the day (as long as I go to bed between 9-10 when I start dreaming about what’s in he kitchen I could nibble.)

So Day 11 was the first day I was tip top shape for the entire day!  Feeling full of energy and life, clear thinking and patient!

My breakfast is pretty much the same for the next 2 weeks! They give you other options such as Miso soup, avocado and mashed chick peas but like I said….. not my ideal breakfast! Fresh fruit will do me just fine!!!  I am in a routine of making myself one and the boys love it too! I read today that fruit in the morning is cleansing and easy to digest for the body!

Tomorrow I need to get to the store for distilled water and more fruit.

Here’s the Skinny on Day  11:

Wake up w/20 oz of distilled water (Mineralize added) and continue drinking this ALL day just not until 30 mins after a meal for digestion purposes!

Take Supplements (Optimize & Detox)

Wait 30 Minutes

Breakfast (fruit bowl above) Try to pick low glycemic and in season organic fruit

Wait at least 2 hours. (I waited 3)

Take Supplements again

Wait 30 min

Lunch

I don’t know that it’s allowed but I usually end up combining whatever mix of food combos they have set up. For instance today was cucumber tomato salad, 1 cup quinoa, and 1/4 avocado…so I just mixed it all in. It looks messy but tasted really great! Instead of the dressing listed (that was mostly the same ingredients as the greek dressing — I just used what I already had made of that) but here’s the recipe:

Cucumber & Tomato Salad courtesy of the Ultimate Reset

(Makes 1 Serving)

2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar

1 tsp. balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil

1 medium cucumber, partially peeled, cut lengthwise then sliced

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved

1 Tbsp. red onion, chopped

2 Tbsp fresh herbs (I used parsley & basil), chopped

Himalayan salt to taste (optional)

Herbal seasoning (optional)

Combine red wine & balsamic vinegars, lemon juice, and oil in a small bowl, mix well. Set aside. Combine cucumber, tomatoes, onion, parsley, basil, salt, and seasoning in a large bowl, mix well. Drizzle dressing over cucumber mixture; toss gently.

Wait at least 2 hours (I waited 3)

Take your power greens

Wait 30 minutes

Optional Snack – I had vanilla vegan Shako

Wait 2 hours

Take Supplements (Optimize, Detox & Soothe)

Wait 30 min

Dinner

Hearty Miso Soup

Hearty Vegetable Miso Soup

courtesy of the Ultimate Reset

makes 1 serving

Ingredients:

• 1 t. extra virgin olive oil or safflower oil

• 2 T. finely chopped yellow onion

• 1 t. finely chopped garlic

• 1 small carrot, cut in thin diagonal slices

• 1 small celery stalk, cut in thin diagonal slices

• ½ t. peeled and finely grated ginger (I omitted – I hate ginger like a lot)

• 2 C. water

• ¼ C. broccoli florets

• 2 T. chopped fresh green beans (I only had asparagus)

• ¼ C. shredded Napa cabbage or bok choy

• 1 T. wakame seaweed (optional…It makes me hate life so I don’t add this either haha)

• ¼ t. sesame oil

• 1 T. sliced green onion

• 1 T. miso paste mixed with 2 T. hot water (also optional)

Directions:

1. Heat EVOO in soup pot on medium heat.

2. Add onion, garlic, ginger, carrot, and celery and saute for 5 minutes.

3. Add water and simmer on low for 20 minutes until veggies are tender.

4. Add broccoli, beans, cabbage, and seaweed.

5. Stir and simmer until tender but not overcooked; broccoli and beans should remain crisp.

6. Remove from heat and add sesame oil, green onion, and miso mixture.

1/4 cup quinoa & lemon greens (greens sautéed in extra virgin olive oil & squeeze of lemon)

Finished off the night with chocolate Teeccino in place of coffee or a cheat and I have to say it makes giving up coffee for good a breeze!!

Dude, I’m so ready to be laser beam focused on my goals to lean out before my 2 rounds of 21 Day Fix Extreme  in prep for 80 Day Obsession!!!!

How to get out of a funk – My top tips for how I handle my own ups and downs

#busymomprobs

Ever have days you feel defeated? I mean, of course you do. I just don’t know how to open this convo haha Gaaaahhhhhhhd this is the kind of stuff that I just feel sick to my stomach about sharing. But then after I get myself out of the funk I know that if I share it and I can help ONE person turn their day, week, life around then it was worth this moment of uncomfortable nausea I feel as I type.

Feb 2016 July 2016 2nd try 1810
Even snapchat couldn’t cheer me up 😉

I read something a friend wrote the other day and she said “people are strange…they are constantly outraged by the minuscule but when it comes to big matters, like wasting their entire life, they hardly seem to notice”
And don’t get me wrong!! this is not a woe is me, feel bad for Tawnya post!! I am sooooo freaking lucky and blessed. I have ZERO reason to stress, worry, be consumed by the negative, nothing. BUT, I’m human. We have a baseline of emotion and daily (mostly by choice) we are either way high, close to, or way low of that baseline. You don’t want to live flat line and you don’t want to live in the extreme.
So yesterday I hit a few roadblocks in my business, I tried some new ideas that failed, I waited all day for something that finally came then I had to leave 20 minutes after it got there, I had more to do in the amount of time I had to do them, I didn’t clean the house which means I woke up to a mess today, and then to top it all off this morning I took progress photos that look WORSE than my week 5 progress/results….. (insert ughs and eye rolls).

Feb 2016-June 2016 1481
8 week progress

My first thought was that as soon as I got the kids off to school I was just going to skip everything I had planned for today and curl up on the couch and turn on a movie. But I recognized that voice from years ago. It was a girl that used to be afraid to try anything or DO ANYTHING. I never tried out for sports because I was too nervous that I would fail and not be accepted on to the team. I never went out for drama class in case I froze and wasn’t given a part. I never finished any class I started in college because I felt like it didn’t make a difference. I didn’t try to make new friends because of how hurt I’d been over and over by old ones. I never asked for help because I felt like I wasn’t worth the burden to someone else.
It’s taken me 3 years to grow into someone I only used to dream of being. It’s taken me all this time to realize that it’s not immediate gratification that fulfills you. It’s not all the bright shiny objects that make your heart feel happy. It’s not a goal reached but the mountain you climbed that truly completes you. Good and bad days are all in how you perceive them and if I were to try I could turn every one of those negatives about yesterday and today into a positive. Which is exactly what I did. I got out a notepad and wrote down everything that was weighing me down between yesterday and today and came up with this…
I learned 3 new things I can teach other leaders on my team about our business, I can try and improve on the ideas I tried to execute that didn’t work so that I’m better next time, I sat and laughed with friends and business partners all over the country from my phone while I waited for the sun to come out then had a 20 minute peaceful stretch on an empty beach listening to the ocean, I checked 8 things off my list yesterday that are done and taken care of, my house is trashed today but by deciding to take action instead of curl up on the couch I can breeze through and get it put back together, and my progress photos that look WORSE than my week 5 progress/results will be a great way to share with potential coaches and clients as well as my ‪#‎shinebrighttribe‬ that we all face plant. It’s life. There is no ONE result or set of progress photos that determine my worth or the fact that I am a happy healthy momma that gets to stay home in my yoga pants, drink coffee, workout at home, go to the beach, not miss any school or sporting event, travel, be surrounded by amazing humans, share my life and times with all of you, and be financially independent.. No boss, no time clock, no one telling me where or when to be.
After I made the list I felt so grateful for taking the time to assess what is really important. Choosing to see that in every mess we have the opportunity to share a message makes me feel like now I can climb that mountain. So I’m going to put Rhianna on, drink my pre-workout, breeze through this house like Mary Poppins, kill 22 minutes with Tony & a handful of marines in the garage, and wear a smile bigger than I’ve had in 2 days because of the healthy mindset and growth that the last 3 years as a Beachbody coach has brought me. When I think of all the ways and changes it’s not always personal development that comes to mind first but it’s definitely the foundation of my entire being and without that I would have quit this business 10 times over by now and would be STUCK wasting my life away wishing for, wanting more, and not truly enjoying anything life set in front of me.
So next time you feel defeated, ashamed, or just shitty… go turn the list around to see how you can put that list in a new light. If you need recommendations on books I’ve read or things I watch on personal development and growth let me know! I’d love to share!!
And, if you aren’t asleep yet thank you so much for reading along 😉 this was a hard post to put together for me but if it resonated with you at all then you’ve made it 100% worth doing.  Here’s how you can show that funk who’s boss:


blessed beyond belief

blessed beyond belief****S H A R I N G my H E A R T****

.
As I approach my 3rd year as a health coach, I can’t help but think of how MUCH has changed by that one leap of faith.
.
.
Physically
Mentally
Emotionally
Spiritually. . .

And, FINANCIALLY.

.
I try my best to share why I think the coaching opportunity is such a GIFT; especially if you are looking at this from a BUSINESS perspective. Why let someone else decide what you are WORTH per HOUR? If you would have told me a few years back that I could make in one hour what used to take me 3-4 serving shifts at my high end restaurant job I wouldn’t have believed you. I’m just an ordinary girl. No special talents. I’ve failed at every single thing I’ve ever attempted in my life. Being the underdog is my comfort zone. I’m an introvert. And, I’ve always been terrible with numbers.

.
.
.
But this past month has been a great example of the power of duplication and how earning potential and the CULTURE of our Team leads to solid income.
.
-We don’t post links.
-We don’t “sell.”
-We work hard to share our TESTIMONY and are true believers that income, rank and success are natural byproducts when you SERVE others rather than SELL products.

–> It’s certainly not the “only” way or the most “popular” way, but it’s OUR way. And it WORKS. <—
.
.
The end of July and beginning of August was a BUSY week for our family…

-Aden’s birthday.
-Back to School prep and shopping.
-Tom having a jam packed work schedule.
-Catching up on summer work.
-Heading off for those final summertime excursions
——————

💜
Our accountability and coach training groups were in HIGH gear and LIVES were changing.
💛
Our Team was EXPLODING with growth. Woman and men who saw the potential and who knew that short term sacrifice would lead to long term gain.
💚
Coaches were growing families, pursuing their passions and serving others.
————————-
And because of THIS Team effort, incomes continued to grow.

Coaches came HOME to their families.

Mortgages, utilities, car payments, debt, savings and vacations were continuing to be funded by the PASSION of this Team.

— And, I earned my paycheck that if you equated it to a “per hour” scale (and I don’t want to rub anyone the wrong way but if you’re reading this, you know my heart). In that one hours worth of work (I could squeeze in for the week) I got paid $683.00 within that ONE, incredibly busy family week. It’s not the biggest check I’ve ever received as a coach but it was the MOST money I’ve ever earned in one hours time! And that’s not to say I don’t work more than that on an average #coachlife week but, where can you decide to make your own schedule everyday and earn an income whether you are present or not!?

It may be a LOT to some, and little to others…but to ME it was a TRUE representation that I’m building something I can do even while:

I stay true to OUR values.
I am home with ALL my children.
I am able to continue to contribute to OUR personal family goals and activities.
And that you CAN build, and earn and serve others all while being completely in charge of your own schedule and activities!
.
.
Next week I will begin searching for a new group of coach interns and I’d love to answer ALL your Questions about Coaching. You will also have access to all of my personal experiences as a Coach and while this is NOT an overnight success business nor a posting links marketing company…
.
It will require hard work and resiliency.
Dedication and selflessness.
And staying true to the culture of OUR Team.
.
BUT, if you’ve been seeking a change in life, coaching can be anything YOU want it to be. You set the pace and I will match your speed.

Want to be a STAY AT HOME MOM?

LOOKING FOR MOMS WHO STAY at HOME or WANT TO STAY HOME WITH THEIR BABIES.

A little under 2.5 years ago I was introduced to a opportunity that would literally change the course of my life.

Don’t get me wrong I had an amazing employer at a local high end family restaurant working with fun and new people all the time. It was extremely fulfilling helping my guests enjoy their experience. I was able to make my own schedule and earn a significant income. But, just like most moms out there I was losing out on TIME with my own children and longed to be able to be home with them.

Not knowing exactly what I stumbled upon I slowly worked my business in between school pick ups and drop offs, during sports practices, and after my little ones rested their heads in the evening.

Before I realized it I started to generate a real income. {enough for my boyfriend to take notice } I continued to be efficient with the little time I had for me and was able to grow my business to REPLACE MY CURRENT MONTHLY INCOME as a server. Along with that I realized my DREAM of retiring from the serving life to be with those that are most important to me…. My FAMILY.

want to be a stay at home momma

I am just a regular person. A mother that just wanted to be HOME and DREAMED a little BIGGER then most are willing to dream.

I had no business experience. No formal training or clue about social media… Except mindlessly scrolling😝 and Pinterest.
But, I did enjoy helping other people and thought that health promotion was the missing link in today’s GROWING TREND of fast food and cheap ingredients while TV surfing and web scrolling. I had a STRONG DESIRE to change my circumstances.

I am humbled to be recognized in the top 1% as a Diamond coach out of 350,000 in the entire network. I have my GOALS set high in 2015 to pay this forward to other mommies out there just like me.

Moms that want time and endless FREEDOM of time with their families.
