Getting back on Track!!

Have you ever gotten in a FUNK or off track in any aspect of you life?  Eating good, working out, working, relationships or just life in general??

I think we all do! I have been at my Lake house for the past month and I was in a FUNK!!

~I worked out but not as much as I should have~

~I ate good but not as Clean as I usually do~

~I worked but not as efficient as I should have~

The last week I was there (before coming home) I told myself “YOU MUST GET A PLAN IN ACTION”  so heres how I am getting back on track!

~Working out First thing in the morning and then reading some personal development to get my mind on right!

~EAT that FROG (do the tasks that I dont like to do or that are the most important) in the first 2 hours of my work day 8am-10am.

~take a break to think (my personal development suggests that we take time to think) by taking a walk/run with my dog if its not raining. If its raining then sit in a quiet spot for 15 min minimum and just think.

~Now that All my “Have tos” are done now I can go on with the creative things I love to do with my business  ie.  new ideas, conference calls with team members, try new recipes to share, have lunch with friends, go shopping….etc….

~I can now spend quality time with my loved ones without feeling that there are things undone and “not worked” for the day.  I actually left my phone in the car at dinner last night~Try it sometime!! (relationship is in better shape)

I don’t know if this helps you but I think we can all get in a FUNK and hope mine helped you in some way!!

DUCK!!

These 2 Darlings were in the road on my way home today. I stopped, honked my horn, tried to pull forward and honked again. They WOULD NOT move!! At first I got mad, then I decided to drive around them and I then I quacked up …sorry I am corny sometimes.

I realized that they resembled the many roadblocks that we ALL deal with.

You can get mad, frustrated, yell or cry but if you just sit and relax for a minute~maybe think outside the box~the answer will present itself and life will go on.

Another way to look at it~ These guys were on a mission (they had a goal in mind) and nothing, not even a car and a loud horn, were going to stop them from reaching their goals.

 

After I drove around, I looked back and they looked as if nothing even phased them….they just kept walking up this hill…….In the middle of the ROAD!!

Choose to turn your roadblocks into life lessons and keep WADDLING towards your goals, one QUACK at a time!

Mom, This one is for you!!

My Mom~ I know she will read this in the next 24 hours because she checks for new blog posts everyday….Oh ya, I have heard this before “I haven’t seen any new posts on your website lately” LOL

Where do I start?? Well lets go back to my younger days….of course it wasn’t all roses!  I was a very typically teenager and then some. She raised my brother and I by herself from when I was 10 until she married my step dad when I was 17. Would I change that….HECK NO!!  If she wouldn’t have raised us as a single mom, I wouldn’t be who and where I am today. She was a great role model. She worked hard, went to school and was always bettering herself .

How did she do it,  I will never know. She didn’t date around or rely on men to get what she wanted…..She just went for it.  She’s a true #Girlboss

I feared her disappointment more than anything!  Believe me, I know I disappointed her many times but I know that all kids do that…… but I also know as an adult there were disappointments as well. I am on my 3rd marriage, made some financially bad choices, spent money I didn’t have and made some quick decisions. BUT I also know that all of those bad things have brought me to who I am today…and I kinda like myself and I think she does too! 🙂

I live a 3 minute drive from my mom now (10 minute walk thru the woods but I hate bugs and tics) and we talk almost everyday. She is MY MOM, my friend and she is freaking awesome!! (Love you MOM)

 

We are so different but it is funny as I look back on my life, it looks a lot like hers (once I got my shit together). Here are some similarities we have….

~Both of our husbands are 11 years older and they cook, clean and would do anything for us (my stepdad is my dad in my eyes…THANKS BRUCE!) Thanks Hubby Mark for being such an amazing person….that is a whole different blog!

~Owned a Harley Davidson…not sure how old she was but I think we both went thru our BIKER phase in our 30s

~Bought a Lake House in her 40s (I just bought one last month about 12 miles from hers)

~We both Drive Toyotas and live in the house of our dreams

~She owns a pool and I have had many homes with pools (She has lived in the same house since I was 17..I am on house #who knows)

~She loves to come home and put her t-shirt and sweats on….kinda like me wearing workout gear all the time

~We both love dogs and probably will always have them

~We truly love our family!!

It may of taken me a lot longer to figure life out, but once I did, I now realize that she’s a HUGE influence on WHO I am and HOW I got here.

I know I don’t say it enough, so THANK YOU MOM and I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!

Many people hire Life Coaches, well I was born with one!

Are you curious how I make a living, travel  AND get paid to workout? Its got to be a trick, RIGHT?? Wrong, I definatley thought it was when I signed up to coach. I understand what it may look like from the outside looking in, so I want to answer a few common questions!

My story~ Clean Eating Crohn’s Disease Girl

I have battled Crohn’s Disease for 20 years. I was diagnosed after having many visits to the bathroom minutes after eating.  Bloating, Cramping, Abdominal Pain, Throwing up and loss of energy are all the not so fun things associated with this, not so pretty, Disease.  7 Years ago I met some amazing ladies thru a local Chamber of Commerce. I was there because I had bought a Coffee shop and networking was in “THE PLAN.”

These beautiful ladies taught raw vegetarian eating and I sold $300 worth of patio furniture to join their class.  This was the beginning of my Health & Fitness Journey!

I lost 20 pounds and stopped getting my IV transfusions of Remicade (an alpha protein that is 20% mouse DNA) and was dehydrating nuts and fruits thru my 9 drawer contraption on my counter. My hubby had bought this for me~he’s always so supportive of what I do…and I have done it all!! I learned so much about food, how to eat raw, what  “mock tuna” was and I started researching food as medicine.

Eventually, making everything with RAW food became very time consuming and due to having to work a ton, as a new business owner, I stopped eating raw.  I did not go back to my Crohn’s Meds or see my GI doctor but I did not keep the weight off.

Over the past 7 years, I have tried many different “Diets”…..Weight Watchers, Atkins Diet, HCG,  Starvation…You get my point.  So the yo-yo story, like most people, happened.

I have stayed in contact with these ladies thru the years.  We have become friends and tried a few ventures together. I told you I have done everything!!  About 2 years ago, they introduced me to this thing called “Beachbody”.   I am thinking -“I am the farthest thing from being a Beachbody!”  They started these “challenge groups” and I love competition….so GAME ON!!    I participated to the MAX and did well.  Oh I sold something to be a purchase my first “Challenge Pack”. I have always been one to do anything I have to, to get what I want!

Lost weight, started exercising regularly at home, learned even more about food, made some more new friends and felt like a NEW me!!  These groups are addicting!!

Well, they quit doing these groups for about 6 months and I was very sad!!  I felt like I had found my way and now there was no one to lead me. I kept eating pretty good but stopped working out and didn’t feel very good about myself.  I tried another  “at home” business.  Like I needed something else to keep me busy with having a Coffee shop to run! I didn’t like how I felt while doing this side business.

before-after3As the first of the Year (2014) approached, they started doing the groups again!!   Game On Again!!    After having huge success with this new plan I learned, I was BACK!!!

April 25th, 2014 I started my Coaching Career…ironic that it happened to fall on the birthday of the ladies that I started this journey with. Over the past year, I have yo-yoed a bit but my health just keeps getting better everyday.  I have dove into researching food and how it affects the body.  Clean Eating is my passion now.

This past February, I lost my grandmother, who was very near and dear to me. before-after2After she died, I stepped up my Clean Eating and Working out.

I started  lifting weights, omitting corn and cheese (I love Mexican food), and decided to sell my Coffee shop to Coach FULL TIME.  I sold my shop June 1st…..

Today, 7/9/15~I am still med free. I do have flare ups but they usually from eating too fast, not chewing my food well, eating wheat products accidently or from stress. I can control these things.  I have reached my goal weight and continue to work on lowering my body fat % and hope to do a fitness competition someday.  This has always been a huge goal for me that I never thought was possible. I know now that anything is possible.  I am so excited to share my story to help others live happy, healthier, fuller lives thru clean eating and physical fitness.  Thank you for being here!
