Do a New Thing

I had already shared awhile back that I was leaving Beachbody. I had shared that I really felt God was leading me away, and also, because I really have felt for the longest time that I was on the wrong seat on the bus.

Let me explain.

As someone whose job it was to help people reach their health and fitness goals with the programs and tools I offered, I started to really take notice that while people were encouraged by my words and my actions, I was not the one they went to in order to REACH those health goals. They would go somewhere else. They would hire a personal trainer, join a gym, try a different product or program, whatever. And that is not me blaming them, whatsoever. They were doing their due diligence in finding the best solution for them.

I was just not that solution. And that is okay to admit. I have never, ever wanted to be a personal trainer. I had a Cize Live certification, but really, that was as far as I was going to go with any type of fitness certification. I had no interest in being a fitness professional.

So it really made me think about whether or not I was on the right seat on the bus. My answer came to a defeating: NO.

I also realized that in this business, because I wasn’t gaining customers (people who wanted me to help them with their fitness goals), most of my income was coming from my team. And that was not the reason why I joined. While I realize with Direct Sales/ MLM’s that is part of it, building wealth by building a team, I didn’t want that to be the only way. It wasn’t right to me. The only way you are really successful is if your team is successful. That is a good thing. But I also wanted customers. I wanted to have a business helping people and get them the results they were paying for. That mattered to me.

So it made sense to walk away. And be open to new opportunities that fit who I am a little bit better.

To provide my family with the financial portion that we needed (and we do need it).

To build relationships with other women.

To have fun.

And my favorite part: to possibly do it with my sister.

And I found it in Vegan hair care.

Hair care? Seriously?

Yes. To be honest, this is outside of my comfort zone. It requires being more social. And leaving my house, possibly. And actually talking to friends and hanging out over wine and coffee and not be a hermit. Or cling to staying indoors.

But the opportunity is huge. And honestly……it is just shampoo. That’s it. It doesn’t require people to change their habits or behavior or force them to adjust their budget to add something they have never had before. It is just fun. It is just shampoo.

I have been using it on myself and my family the last couple of weeks, and I can say it had made a difference in my own hair. It feels so much cleaner and more manageable. But that is all I will tell you.

Because this isn’t really about my old business or my new business.

It is about being okay with walking away from something that was good in your life, but realizing it may not fit what you need anymore, and being brave to pursue or open to something new. That can be anything in life.

Just as many of us will leave good jobs for greater ones, for a myriad of reasons, it is the same with everything else.

We pray. We weigh the pros and cons. We try. We fail. We win. We learn. We grow. That is how it goes.

So, if you are stuck spinning your wheels, and you know something needs to change, but you aren’t sure how….be open. Be praying. Be brave. Try. Fail. Then try again.

And be okay with walking away from good to get to Great.



Live Your Passion

*Warning! Pic heavy*

I came home from an incredible week in Nashville for Beachbody’s annual conference, Coach Summit.

The energy. The people. The announcements. The training. 

Even the perks of being able to earn and attend a Leadership pre party before a concer with Billy Idol (for real! I was on the floor for the concert. So fun!!!)

I learned so much. My brain is still trying to process everything. To say I came home from Coach Summit even more inspired is an understatement. 

I am fired up.

My biggest aha moment was after attending my Cize Live! certification workshop. I realized that while I loved dancing, I loved this fitness program Cize LIVE, I really love teaching people to have fun in fitness. Fitness is my passion. I wake up everyday excited to go an chat with someone about their health and fitness goals and help them get started.

Fitness changed my life. I was a girl who struggled to get out of bed each morning and felt so useless and exhausted all the time as a young mom of 2 kids. I wasn’t able to take care of them or my husband because I couldn’t even take care of myself. 

Fitness changed me. It made me more disciplined. It made me understand that I was important too. That if I didn’t take care of myself and if I got sick, who would love my family as well as I could? Who would take care of them?

Fitness is FUN! That is what I want people to see! You don’t always have to do burpees or hop on a treadmill to get in shape. You can dance (hence why I became a Cize Live instructor!) You can do anything you want to!

I love that I don’t have to be perfect and that I don’t have to preach perfection to people. I am consistent and I do my best to eat well and move daily. My body is a temple after all. I love that in my passion for fitness, I have made an incredible amount of girlfriends who love Jesus and are passionate about the same thing! I have a tribe! They won’t let me give up and I won’t let them give up.

My passion actually helps people get healthy for the rest of their life. Not just for a season. I know that the fitness field doesn’t seem super spiritual, and perhaps it is not something that most people expect from a pastor’s wife.

But living your passion, especially as a Christian woman, doesn’t mean it always has to be within the confines of the local church. You can serve your church and live out your passion outside of those four walls.

Whatever God is calling you to, go for it!!! I am so excited! I know that I will have to put aside other things that, while very good, aren’t what I should be doing right now. In fact, for me to keep doing those other things means I am taking a spot from someone who really wants to serve in that capacity. So I will step aside and serve in health instead. 

Gary Vaynerchuk shared this strategy for a successful life:

Love Your Family

Work Hard

Live Your Passion.
I will share more about loving your family and working hard later this week.

But for now I say, go. Live Your Passion.

What are you passionate about? 

Be a Size You,


Live a Life By Design

Team Fuel Opportunity call

What is it that you dream of doing during your lifetime, but you feel limited because of:






*Your story

*Your health



Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to do something big with my life.  Due to my love of performance and the stage, I naturally envisioned myself becoming a world class performer, and therefore gaining influence, power, wealth, and accolades.

That was my something big when I was a little girl. Then, I got married and had two children with this incredible man. My dreams shifted.

I now have a mission in my heart to minister to women from all walks of life to Be a Size You. To realize, deep down inside of themselves, that they are of incredible worth. That what they see in the mirror does not determine their destiny or about how much God loves them. Because He loves us infinitely more than we could ever imagine.

I want to spread a message of hope.  That we can trust the God because He is good. And that He has given each of us special gifts: natural gifts from birth and spiritual gifts upon our confession of faith in Christ, to do an immeasurable amount of good.

That we can bless others with our stories. That we can see miracles beyond belief.

That we can weave a tale of love, hope, passion, ministry, faith, just by choosing to do our something big.

One of the main reasons I chose to become a Beachbody Coach was because I wanted to make my ministry of Be a Size you possible.  With a husband who works hard in ministry, but his paycheck does not reflect his hours or his effort, we were limited. I wanted to help my family.  I wanted to no longer experience stress every time we put gas in our car, or went to the grocery store, about whether or not we would have enough to pay bills.

I wanted to pour into the ministry of Be a Size You so that more women can hear a message of hope, instead them constantly hearing that they weren’t good enough because they didn’t look like the girl on the cover of a health and fitness magazine.

I wanted to be able to give abundantly more to organizations that we care about, so that they could continue their important work of helping those in need.

So now I ask you, what life, if all of those factors listed above didn’t exist, would you design for yourself, for your family, for your dreams?

I invite you to hear my story, and all about my team and what we truly do as Coaches.  I ask that you give an hour of your time to hear my heart as I share why I love this company, why I choose to do what I do, and how you can be a part of our mission to help others and live a life by design.

Be a Size You,
