From Dreamer to Hope Dealer

I am so proud of the work I get to do as a Beachbody Coach.

I know many folks are now shying away from working in any sort of network marketing company. Usually for reasons that are understandable.

*It is too salesy
*I don't want to be that friend.
*It is all a pyramid scheme
*Only the people at the top make money
*People who work in those type of businesses only care about money.

I hear ya. I had all of those reasons too. I didn't want to be that person. I didn't want to be annoying. I worried about what others would think.

But when I started working on my health and fitness journey back in 2011, and then I started sharing my journey and transformation with others, and then others were telling me how my encouragement helped them to get started, I realized I had found my calling.

No, not in fitness, surprisingly, although I do enjoy fitness and health and eating healthy. And I love Beachbody's programs and Shakeology and supplements.

No, I had found my calling in being a story teller, and pushing people to move from just dreaming about it to doing it.

I became a hope Dealer.

I joined a team of hope dealers.

Here is the deal. I can workout every day and tell you that you should workout too, but I can't make you do it.

But if I constantly tell you my story, and I invite you to join me in this story, so that you begin telling yours…..then I have done my job.

I have had women join my fitness groups who felt discouraged from the very beginning because they didn't believe they could ever finish a fitness program from start to finish simply because they had failed in the past.

My job is to help you see and know that yes, you can.

I don't preach quick fixes. Heck no. This whole working out and eating to nourish deal is for life. You need lifetime habits, girlfriend.

I also help women recognize their dreams for their families. Meaning, they have the opportunity to change their financial future simply by working and doing what I do. There are no guarantees. They have to work. They have to treat it like a job they show up to every day, but I am watching women on my team quit their full time jobs to stay at home, and contribute income and help their family and spouses.

That is hope made possible.

I get to help women who are broken and discouraged, whether due to their health or their life, and walk with them to see transformation. From broken to whole.

Working in health and fitness has very little to do with fitness programs. Those are just products to sell. And they are amazing products/tools that people can use to get healthy. They work.

But the real work, the most inspiring work, the most gratifying work is the work behind the scenes. Working with your friends who also love Jesus and are fellow hope dealers.

And watching lives be transformed.

I am looking for more women like this.

Hello dreamers who want to be hope dealers.

I am taking on 5 women to join my team. Join my mission to help women love the skin they are in, transform their life and the lives of others.

Is that woman you?

I would love to chat with you to see if Team Be a Size You would be a good fit for you.

You can apply here, and I will schedule an appointment to chat.

Don't be afraid of asking. You have nothing to lose by learning more. No pressure.

Just possible dreams being realized.

Be a Size You,


You V2. 

How many times have you watched me or someone else do a fitness program from Beachbody and had this thought:

“That looks awesome and I bet it works….but I am not physically ready to go that hard yet.”

Mama friend, let me tell you. I hear you loud and clear. Not everyone is ready for bootcamp or crossfit style workouts. That is just the reality. And for the longest time, I have felt like Beachbody was missing those amazing people. Not intentionally. Piyo and Cize and Country Heat are perfect. And 21 Day Fix. But we needed something else.

And you need to see others who are like you doing this. Enough with the skinny Minnie fitness people who don’t look like they need to workout.

You want something different. You want to see something different.

Here you go. Introducing YouV2.

What is it?

Get ready to party, sweat, and celebrate becoming the new you every time you press play. Expect to have lots of fun with feel good party tunes, an incredible group of ladies of all shapes and sizes, and motivation from your biggest cheerleader and trainer, Leandro (creator of Brazilian Butt Lift!) With 4 cardio-dance routines and 2 body-sculpting workouts, Leandro teaches you easy-to-follow moves, step-by-step. And the best part? He picked songs that will make you want to move and groove to the new version of you. (80’s AND 90’s!!!! Yaaaaaasssss!!) 

Who is it for?

Perfect for fitness beginners. Women who want a fun dance-inspired workout that’s easy to follow, fitness beginners, women who have never really worked out or haven’t in a long time, women who want to begin a life-changing journey to look and feel better, women who want to lose weight but don’t like strict programs or diets, mothers.

Yes. This is for you!! 
The workouts will be 30 minutes long for 5 days a week for a total of 4 weeks. And if you want to keep going with the program, you can do multiple rounds, which personally I love because that builds consistency. And consistency gets you results and transforms you. Which is what you want…..right? 

You can see what I am talking about here on YouTube


You can check out the sneak peek that is happening today only over on Beachbody on Demand. 

If you haven’t tried your free trial membership yet, let me know and I can help you get started. And you will get to try out Youv2 and other fitness programs before making a commitment. Which I know we appreciate. Regular gyms only give you a week.

We will give you 30 days. And in your own home to boot. 

I am so excited to test it out today. If you follow me on IG, I will be doing a Instastory on it so be sure and keep your eyes peeled!

Be a Size You,


Core De Force 

Here we go!
I kick off Core De Force, my new fitness program, on March 13th, and I am so excited to challenge myself to something new. 
If you aren’t familiar with the program, or you have never heard of it before, allow me to share a few details with you:
1. It is an MMA style workout. Created by Joel Freeman And Jericho McMatthews, they came up with an intense, but effective program that allows you to utilize the techniques of MMA, and get into incredible shape. There is no equipment required. They will be helping you you use your body weight to get in fighting shape.
2. It is a 30 day program, with the option to go multiple rounds.
3. This is not a cardio/kickbox/dance program. It is not choreographed to the beat. There are awesome tracks included, but you are not dancing! 
4. There is a nutrition guide included in the program, which for most of us is what we need the most. 
5. I got to test it out at the NLC 2017 a couple of weekends ago and it basically solidified my decision to give it a go. I am excited!

Did I mention I was pumped to start? It has been brutal giving my body some downtime to recover from 60 days of 22 Minute HC. But I am glad I did. I am ready to kick some major tail. 
Here is what is on deck for me this coming week. I will be working out through Beachbody On Demand: 
Monday: MMA Speed
Tuesday: Dynamic Strength
Wednesday: MMA Speed
Thursday: Power Sculpt
Friday: MMA Shred
Saturday: Dynamic Strength
Sunday: Active Recovery & Meal plan
For my nutrition:
I will be continuing Shakeology (of course) as well as drinking Beachbody Performance Energize for my pre-workouts and Beachbody Performance Recover for my post workout. I will still be eating mostly Paleo, as well as following the color coded Fix container system as much as I can. I struggle with portions so those containers help a ton!
I can’t wait to get started.
What program are you doing right now? Have you ever considered trying Core De Force?
Be a Size You,


Keep It Simple, Mama

First, big news. I am officially finished with sixty days of 22 Minute Hard Corps. It was not easy. It pushed me physically, but it was awesome and I feel amazing.
My before and after photos and entire summary will be blogged really soon. I am so happy with how I look and feel. I truly believe this is a program anyone can do. You will see results if you are consistent.

But for those of you who are literally feeling like you are struggling to find some ground when it comes to your weight loss goals, I hear you.

It is not easy getting started. We see folks doing all of these seemingly complicated workouts and nutrition plans and we want to jump in on them too. They aren’t bad, but then we realize, once we start, what we got ourselves into.

And then we feel overwhelmed. We look at what we want to achieve and then we see our schedules and we feel defeated.

But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Let’s keep it simple, Mama!

We don’t have to make fitness complicated. We don’t have to make clean eating complicated. We can keep it simple, make it work for our schedules, and feel good in the process. 

And yes, we can begin the journey towards habits and real results that will last for a lifetime. 

On March 13th, I am kicking off a FREE 7 day Keep it Simple fitness and clean eating group!
Here is what you can expect:

*My favorite healthy and EASY recipes that you can make for your entire family.

*A featured workout move or workout from Beachbody On Demand (if you already have a membership, you can use whatever workout you want. Don’t have a membership? Get a FREE 30 day TRIAL!)

Any workouts shown will be 30 minutes or less. See? Simple! 

*Busy Girl/Mama encouragement (from a fellow busy wife and mama who gets it!)

*An inside look as to how I workout and eat healthy when dealing with a full plate. And most of all, how to KEEP IT SIMPLE and not stressful! 

*Tips and more that will help you establish healthy habits and work toward your own health and fitness goals.

You must commit by Sunday, March 12th. I would hate to start without you!!!! 

Some ground rules:

*If you are a coach, or you are already working with a Beachbody Coach, this group does not apply to you. 

*This group is free, yes, but you still need to show up. 80% of your success will be the willingness to put in the effort. I can’t reach your goals for you. You MUST show up. 

*Have fun. Yep. I said it. I know that seems like an oxymoron, but really, once you discover your soulmate workout and a way of eating that works for you, it is fun. You feel more energized and pushing play or going for that run won’t seem like a chore all the time. You will begin to love how you feel. 

Ready to hop in?  Comment on this post or shoot me an email at to get plugged in! I am so excited to embark on this seven day journey with you!
Be a Size You,


Week 6 of 22 Minute Hard Corps

I decided to take some photos this week. And I am so excited.

Left: February 17 2017.  Right: December 2016

What? Yes. This is legit. I honestly don’t know how much weight, if any, I have lost. I haven’t been on the scale. I don’t hate the scale, but I rarely use it.

Pictures tell me a lot more anyway. 

I feel amazing. I officially finish week 6 of 22 Minute Hard Corps on Saturday and I only have two more weeks into the program. But I couldn’t wait to share my results so far. I am so dang excited!!! I know a lot of you have been watching me, but you haven’t really taken the leap yet to try this program out for yourself.

I thought I would answer some questions that I get pretty often.

1. Is it hard?

Yes. Absolutely. Is it doable? Yes. Absolutely. For those who maybe feel they have too much weight to lose before they do this program, Tony Horton specifically created this program so you can do it. They have a modifier you can follow for any move that feels too intense for you. Even one of his directives during the workout is “modify to finish.” He wants you to get the results you want and to finish strong. 

2. Do you need a ton of equipment or space? 

Nope. I workout at home and I only use my mat for core workouts, a couple set of light and heavy dumbells, and a resistance band for pull-ups/chin ups (which you don’t do often). 

I workout in my living room. I have worked out in a fifth wheel. So I am telling you, you don’t need a ton of space. You can get in shape anywhere.

3. Do I have to count calories or follow a strict nutrition plan? 

Well, let me ask you this? How serious are you about getting in shape? Do you kind of want to commit or do you really want results? You get what you put in! I am seeing incredible results because this is challenging. I don’t want to put in all this effort and then just feed my body crap. No thanks. So, I follow a more paleo diet along with Shakeology and Beachbody Performance. But if you aren’t willing to work on what is on your plate, don’t bother with a quality fitness program like this one. You won’t get the results you want and you will have wasted your time and your money. 

4. Why is it so expensive?

Because it is quality. Because you get a program that pushes you for two months, gives you a calendar so you know what day you are doing what workout (meaning you don’t have to figure it out on your own and that saves you TIME), you get a nutrition guide so you can know what meals to eat to get the most out of your workouts (which saves you from paying for a nutritionist/personal trainer because professionals put that nutrition guide together and Tony Horton himself is your trainer!) If you missed my post yesterday about what your health is worth to you, I highly recommend reading it! I see too many people paying for the cheapest gym, and yet they are stuck in the same spot because they don’t have a real plan together. That’s the point. Get a quality plan and stick with it! 

5. Do I have to drink Shakeology/Beachbody performance? I want to do the workout but I am not sure about supplements.

Totally get that. Short answer is no. You don’t have to. But again, I ask you. Do you want to get the most out of this program? Shakeology and performance are not quick fixes. They are to be used in conjunction with your healthy nutrition plan. But I will say that those who have gotten the best results from this program and others like it are those who have followed the plan and drank Shakeology/Beachbody Performance. They just work. They really do. 

So, what do you think? What concerns do you have? I want to help you overcome them. 

Be a Size You,

22 Minute Hard Corps Week 5

Can you seriously believe we are finished with Week 5 of this program? I can’t.

I am still amazed that I have been going strong with this program. I am not lying when I said the first time, I quit after two weeks 😂.

 But let me show you what is capable in five weeks:

Stronger arms. A flatter belly. A greater appreciation for short workouts that push you but get you results.

Working out LESS but eating more. What?! Yes.

It was even that time of the month and ladies, we all know how rough that can be sometimes.

My body blew right past it. It did not slow me down in the slightest. I was a tad bit more tired (I tend to run low on iron during that time), but I just made sure to eat more foods rich in iron this week with plenty more protein and healthy fats so that I didn’t always reach for the salty chips, which was what I would normally do. 

I am not doing the Whole 30 anymore, but I am still eating a mostly Paleo diet. It is working really well for me and for Dan. While Dan is not doing 22, he has been riding his mountain bike and then cross training at the gym. He is slimming down quite a bit and he feels amazing. So proud of my guy! 

I have also noticed my back muscles are becoming more developed. I don’t have a pull up bar so I have to use resistance bands, so it might take longer for those to show, but they seem to be developing. And that makes me really happy. I am a girl who loves muscles. I am far more interested in that than the scale. The scale can’t measure my muscles. But pictures can!

No new meals this week. I will be testing out some new recipes during week six so I will be sure to share if those are a win!

On deck for week six of 22 Minute Hard Corps:

Monday: Resistance 1

Tuesday: Cardio 2 Core 1

Wednesday: Resistance 3

Thursday: Cardio 1 Core 1

Friday: Resistance 2

Saturday: Cardio 2 and Core 1

Sunday: rest and meal prep 

If you are looking for a workout that will have you in and out in no time and still get results, I would love to coach you through 22! Shoot me an email or let’s connect on FB! 

Super Saturday January 2017

One of my favorite events ever happened today and I could not be more excited!

Partnering with the company that created P90X, Shakeology, 21 Day Fix, Cize (my soulmate workout) and more has been so much fun, and I have loved the friendships I have built by being a coach.

Every quarter, Beachbody puts on a little mini conference all over the US and Canada called Super Saturday and it is an amazing way to hear about upcoming fitness program releases in the New Year (which there will be a few!), possible new Shakeology flavor (there will be one!) and trainings. We also get to recognize coaches who have moved their businesses forward, celebrate fitness transformations (my favorite part) and often times, work out! 

Today, I was in San Diego, California for Super Saturday and the incredible Tony Horton was there. If you have no idea who he is, google him. Seriously. 

He shared how he got started in health and fitness. He wanted to be an actor (very similar to my own background actually) and found his calling in helping people get healthy and fit and stay that way.

He reminded us that we can’t make people want to do this. Or join us. Or stay motivated. Which is why it is so important that we are tapped into why WE ourselves want to do this. It has to be bigger than aesthetics. It must go so much deeper than wanting to look good.

There has to be heart attached to it.

Each person in that room today has a why. They had a why when they began, and they have a why now to keep going. And I can bet you that it is deeper than six pack abs.

I am motivated more than ever to serve in health. I know that I don’t do this perfectly. I remember, though, what it felt like to not feel good in my skin and to be tired and sick all the time.

I don’t want to be that woman again. I like the one I am becoming now.

Monday, I begin the Whole 30, start working out to 22 Minute Hard Corps, and Shakeology.

Let’s do this,

What Is Coaching?

What is Coaching?

I probably get asked that question more than anything. So I am inviting you to an opportunity to learn about what I actually do as a Beachbody Coach.

Here is what I want from you first. Have an open mind. An open heart. And a willingness to learn and serve.

If health and fitness is something you enjoy and you have a desire to help other women become healthier, then I want you to be a part of Team Be a Size You.

Coaching is not a job where perfect people with perfect bodies tell others what to do.

We serve in health. Each of us has our own health and fitness beginning, and truthfully, each of us are still a work in progress. But we love people and we want to help them discover the joy of health and fitness. That it isn’t a horrible chore and that it isn’t about shoving supplements down our throats.

We offer real solutions to people’s struggles. Fitness and nutrition and accountability combined. That formula works. 

I will share my story as well as share answer the questions I get the most like:

*How you can save money on your favorite Beachbody programs and products.

*Earn additional income for your family and possibly pay off debt or get back home to your family.

*Stay accountable to your own goals and learn new leadership skills.

*Work with your friends to end the trend of obesity!
And so much more! It will be live so, but guess what?! You don’t have to leave your house! Come in some comfy clothes and grab your favorite beverage and hang out online with me for a bit as I share my story. 

It will be Monday, August 8th at 5:00 PM PST. You can go here and RSVP

I cannot wait to chat with y’all!!!! My favorite part about my job is meeting new people and hearing their stories and sharing why I do what I do. 

See you there!

Be a Team and Build Friendships

As we speak, this week I am getting ready to head to Beachbody’s Annual Conference, Coach Summit, to hang out with 23,000 other coaches in Nashville, TN! 

It is going to be an incredible week of fitness, inspiration, and training. I am really excited to glean from other leaders in the company and learn how to be a better leader for my team, and to better help all of you reach your health and fitness goals. Make sure you are following me on social media so you can see all the Live updates. I will be posting a lot! 😜

My favorite aspect of this business is that not only do I get to build a team and make a living helping and serving others, I also get to do this with friends, as well as make new friends in the process. Many of the people within Team Be a Size You have become connected thanks to social media. We met through IG, FB, Snapchat, blogs, emails, and even online bootcamps. We have prayed for one another and encouraged one another to use the gifts God has created us with in order to serve others. Isn’t that really what a team of people do in a business together? Gather their individual strengths in order to help meet a need in others. We have something that has blessed our lives, and we want to share that blessing with other people. And we do that together.

We are not fitness experts. We don’t come into this thinking Beachbody is the only way. 

But it is a way. It is a good way. And it can be a sustainable way for us to live healthy lives, and should we choose, stay at home and bring in additional income to help our families. We work hard, but we have fun too.

There will be training and tips and resources for you, so that while you may decide to build a business for yourself, you won’t be by yourself. You will have all of us rooting you on and helping you along the way. 

If you are interested in working with like-minded people who share your faith and desire to serve others and you are excited about health and fitness, fill out this application and let’s chat to see if Team Be a Size You would be a good fit for you!

Team Work Makes Dreams Come True

Photo via Success

Team Be a Size You hit a major milestone in our mission to help end the trend of obesity and help others live healthier lives.

We hit 3 Star Diamond. What does that mean? It means that at least 3 of my teammates have reached the highest rank they can achieve in their business: a Diamond Coach. It is not easy to reach this level because it takes effort, sacrifice, a willingness to work hard and lead others towards being successful in their own businesses. You can’t have a selfish attitude when you are leading a team. These ladies worked hard and they earned the success!

I love this business because it truly is a team effort. When my leaders succeed, I succeed. Team Be a Size You would be nothing without the incredible group of women (and a few good men) who serve others in health and love people where they are at. The bonuses, income, vacations and incentives are all extra. We get a front row seat into the lives of people who want live healthier lives and live their lives to the fullest. What a blessing that is!

I am opening up spots for those to join Team Be a Size You. What are the qualification? You don’t have to look like a fitness model or be a health and fitness expert, but you must be a motivated, joy filled  individual who desires to help others and serve others. 

If you would like to see if our team would be a good fit for you and learn more about what we do as Beachbody Coaches, fill out the application to qualify for a chat with me. I want to hear about your goals and see if we can be partners in health together. Stay tuned to the blog this week for more sneak peeks into our Team and what we do! I can’t wait to welcome you to our team! 

Be a Size You,
