About Me...

I am a wife and mother of three kiddos, ages 23, 19, and 12. My husband is the love of my life, and we have been married for 26 years. We love the Lord and purpose to put Him at the center of our home and lives. We are a very active family who loves camping, vacationing, playing with our horses, and our Mustangs. We are very active in our church and enjoy serving with our church family. Health and fitness have been a part of our lives for many years. All three of our kiddos were born via c-section, so needless to say, my stomach has not been the same since my muscles were cut through...UNTIL I began doing my Beachbody workouts. I have been using their products for years, and my results have been amazing. I cannot say enough about the results that can be achieved if you are consistent with the workouts every day.

"What is easy to do is also easy not to do." To do or not to do is the question? Every day I make the choice to press play and complete my workout. I feel full of energy and a sense of accomplishment when my workout is done for the day. I am excited to be on this journey of fitness and hope to bring you along with me. I look forward to seeing all of your fitness, wellness, and life dreams come true. Join me in the journey!

My Transformation:

I have always had an interest in my fitness, and have been going to the gym for many years either to walk or to take a class. The gym that we were members at was about 35 minutes from home so we would only go 1-2 times per week. I knew I should be working out more consistently than that so I began using Beachbody products to have daily workouts. There were so many to choose from and something was always coming out that I enjoyed...10 Minute Trainer, Hip Hop Abs, Brazil Butt Lift, Body Beast, T25, to 21 Day Fix. Each program proved to be challenging for me and allowed me to see results. The key to getting results was ME! I knew that I had to be consistent every day. I was tired of having a muffin top from my three c-sections. My daughter used to ask me why my stomach looked "that way"... the roll at the top of my scar. "Silly girl, it is because of you!" Well, enough was enough, I decided that I was going to work hard to get rid of my tummy. My results are below so you can see that our programs work if you work them...



You can achieve your goals as well. If you are needing to lose weight or just want to tighten and tone, our programs will work for you. We have challenge groups in place to assist you with your fitness & wellness goals. If you are not sure what challenge groups are or how they work, that is ok. ......

5 Tips to Flatten Your Tummy

Today, I am feeling the effects of going away from healthy eating for the last couple of days.  We went on a small trip with the family, and stayed with some friends so we ate out quite a bit.  Even with trying to make healthy choices, the salt and other methods of preparing the food had a negative affect on my belly. My stomach has been bloated and very uncomfortable since I stopped eating my three healthy meals and three healthy snacks per day.  This was the first time that we have derailed on our 21 day fix nutrition/workout plan.  Boy, do I ever feel the difference.  Here are five tips to keep from feeling the bloat...

How to Avoid the Bloat:

There are times when we can’t avoid a bit of bloating, especially for women, but at every other time of the month, we do have a choice. 
  • Avoiding alcohol can make the difference between a flat tummy and the morning-after belly. 
  • Food that’s high in sodium, like chips, pretzels, soy sauce, prepackaged soups, and pizza, can make us retain water and never want to take our sarongs off. 
  • Eating large portions of food, as opposed to small meals throughout the day, can also make our waistline look bigger. Try eating three healthy meals and three healthy snacks per day to properly fuel your body.  You should be eating every two hours.  
  • If you’re going to strut your stuff down the beach, try eating a bunch of meals consisting of lean protein, fruits, and vegetables, no larger than the size of your fist. It’s the perfect size for your body to assimilate without overwhelming your stomach.  Examples of healthy snacks would be almonds, salt free or sea salt peanuts, sunflower seeds, hard boiled eggs, apples w/healthy peanut butter or almond butter, oranges, berries, celery, or carrots.
  • Be sure you are maintaining a daily workout at least 3-5 days per week.
