Shining My Mommin Light On What I Do

There are so many jobs out there for people nowadays to be able to provide for their families.  It’s not solely the typical corporate 9 – 5 anymore.  But did you know that the percentage of people who actually are doing a job they went to school for is about 27%?  As of right now, I’ve had 3 jobs and none of them had anything to do with my schooling but I did them with passion, purpose, being teachable and hard work.

There are many stories out there about Beachbody and in a world that is social media driven, you can post, blog about anything you like and it’s out there in the universe.  Like that commercial goes, if it’s on the internet then it must be true.  So, I want to fill you in on my perspective.

I got into Beachbody after having my son.  I was depressed, I was in need of losing my baby weight and I needed an outlet that was for ME.  My coach, the accountability /challenge groups, the workouts and Shakeology helped me to get to the other side of that.  It helped me to get to a place where I finally felt truly happy, where I was able to get my confidence back, where I was finally eating healthier, where I stopped needing daily medications and pills for a stomach condition.  All I have wanted since that day was to be able to inspire other mothers or women who were like I was and for them to know that they are not alone.  That they can get to the other side too.

I am not a certified nutritionist but I will help you work your way through the nutrition program set out by our Beachbody nutritionists who have worked out a nutrition plan for each fitness program that is in line with the goals, weights, etc. of each program.  I will lead by example and share recipes and tips to help you crush your goals.  I will share with you what I have learned and what has helped me to get where I am today.

As a Beachbody Coach my goal is to help guide you through each fitness program that Beachbody has.  I want to make sure you start, finish and find success.  That is my ultimate goal in what I do everyday.  My goal is to help you be successful, to share value in my tips, recipes, motivation and more.  And to inspire you.  We are called coaches because that is what we do, we coach you, we instruct you, we guide you through fitness programs and nutrition guides.

Here’s the thing: I have been there.  I am going through / have gone through these programs too.  I am doing the same nutrition as my challengers and I am doing the fitness programs.  I am not telling them they should be doing something that I am not doing.  I am leading by example and doing it right alongside them.

Beachbody is not a “quick fix” and it doesn’t claim to be.  Beachbody wants to help you find a program, work through that program and find success.  We want you to know and always tell you that this is not a diet but a healthy lifestyle change, a change we want you to have for the REST OF YOUR LIFE.  But it also won’t be for everybody.  But working out for 30 – 45 minutes a day from home has worked for me for the past year and I’m not planning on quitting or stopping anytime soon.  When I share transformations, they aren’t “quick wins” but people (including myself) who have lost weight, inches and done so using Beachbody programs over a period of 9 – 12months.  I am definitely not about gimmicks or quick fixes as that won’t do you any good or help you in the long run.

Like so many other MLMs out there today, it allows me to work from home while being a stay at home mother to my son and fur-baby.  This allows me to be exactly the type of mother that I always wanted to be and still be able to contribute financially to my family.  Is it a pyramid scheme? NO.  My goal is not to simply build a team and do nothing.  In order to make money I have to help you be successful.  Both as my coaches and as my challengers.  I have to put in WERK.  I don’t make money simply by adding people to my team.  It just doesn’t work that way.  Not with Beachbody anyway.  Would you work for free in your job?  If your boss or customers weren’t happy with your work, would they be able to get a refund from you?!  If my customers aren’t happy with the programs, they can be returned for a full refund after 30 days.  I do not do what I do to sell, sell, sell . . .I want to inspire you, to make an impact, even if it’s just one person.

Now for that elephant in the room. . SHAKEOLOGY.  Here’s what I’m going to say about it.  I have been drinking it for over a year now.  It has helped me to lose weight and keep it off.  It has helped me combat my IBS.  I have not had to take any medications and have been symptom-free for over a year.  I have more energy without needing to drink coffee all day like I used to and I don’t get any of the caffeine jitters.  There’s so much processed, chemically altered and nutrient deficient foods nowadays that for me this is my one meal a day that I don’t have to worry about.  It’s loaded with antioxidants, proteins, probiotics and more.

In this day and age, it’s time to stop bringing other people down and being negative on how others are working to provide for their families.  Because I am simply a mom working hard to bring some hope to other moms out there like me.  So, I hope if anything you have gained a little more perspective into what I do.  But like all jobs, fitness programs, clothing styles, etc., Beachbody won’t be for everyone but maybe it could work for you.
