I can't stop thinking about how incredibly grateful I am for these ladies. Our team culture is unique... and genuine... and real... We love hard, and are collectively passionate about helping others to live their best lives. 🌟 Thank you, Utah for being such a beautiful place for us to get together this past weekend. We laughed, hiked, ate a TON, danced, played games, hot tubbed and sauna'd (is that a word? πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ), and even went T.P.ing... most of all, we BONDED. 🌟 These retreats are SO, SO special because we get to see eachother in-person. Some of us had only met virtually before this last weekend, and I love how there's never any awkwardness to it. 🌟 The relationships I've built through this Coaching gig are just so freaking amazing, and many of these ladies have become my besties. I wasn't looking for anymore besties when signing up for this thing, but I'd sure be missing out on a lot of love and support if I had listened to my fears and said no to the opportunity. Grateful is really an understatement here. ❀

Utah was epic! πŸ™Œ I'm just so lucky to have these ladies by my side. This Coaching "job" that we do isn't always easy at times (just like any other job), and having eachother to lean on really helps to make the not so great times worth it. ❀ This particular retreat was really special because of how many beautiful souls were in attendance. It was by far the biggest retreat I've been to, and being able to co-host this time around was kind of a full-circle moment. I left with a full heart today, and have a TON of fire in my belly to make this next year amazing for our team. πŸ’ƒ Choosing to say yes to an opportunity that scared the shit outta me ended up being one of the best decisions I've made to date. No joke! THIS is the REAL DEAL my friends, and there's always room for more of you to join us. 😍

Yesss!!!! And I'm here in Utah hanging with about 35 AMAZING ladies from my team at a HUGE mansion for the weekend. Never in a million years did I think that saying "yes" to this Coaching opportunity would bring me so much joy. I'm grateful everyday for these ladies who are all on the same mission.... to help others live their best lives! Stay tuned for a ton of retreat spam! ❀ #sorrynotsorry β€’

It's really freaking hard to believe that I have NOT worked out in almost 4 weeks due to this damn ankle injury!!!! 😭 The crazy part is that I haven't gained a pound either. I mean, I'm most definitely sure that I've lost muscle mass because duh.... going from playing soccer 3 days per week on top of doing a LIFT and HIIT program to only walking when I can is most likely gonna change my body a bit. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ You know what though?! I FEEL great in my clothes, so NONE OF THAT MATTERS! πŸ™Œ This mindful eating program I've been telling you guys about is LEGIT! So legit that I think y'all should do it right along with me! πŸ’ƒ My new focus group starts on November 19th, which is JUST in time to get your healthy habits in check BEFORE the holidays!!!! We will put your nutrition at the forefront, and workouts can be optional. You'll learn how to have a healthy relationship with food, and results are GUARANTEED! πŸ‘Œ I've only opened up 10 more spots for the group, and they WILL go fast. To join, simply drop a ❀ below, and/or fill out the, "Mindful Eating" form via the link in my bio! Let's do this!!!!! β€’

I didn't get sober until March of 2014, so the before pic is me just before the peak of my addiction. 🌟 Wasn't long after this pic was taken that I became a full-blown, around the clock drinker who's body needed alcohol to be "well" enough to function. 🌟 I remember this night clearly because it was my Dad's 60th Birthday. It was really important to stay sober that day as I was going to treat my Dad to a movie and dinner. I remember feeling anxious about not being able to drink, and there wasn't a single minute where it didn't cross my mind. This disease straight robbed me of a genuinely good time. 🌟 My Dad ordered himself a rum and coke at dinner, and I was SO freaking relieved because that meant I "could" order a drink too.... but not really since I recently graduated DUI classes, but ONE wasn't going to hurt me, and it was WELL worth it to take the edge off. 🌟 While our server was getting the drinks, my Dad got up to go to the restroom. I was tempted to get up and ask her to make mine a double since I knew I'd only be having one, but was too scared that my Dad would catch me, so I held back. 🌟 That drink made it possible for me to enjoy dinner a bit more, but I felt guilty for putting my Dad in an uncomfortable situation. He knew I had a problem, and worried about me A LOT, but I knew he wasn't going to stop me. 🌟 It's just crazy how pictures can bring back certain memories. Instead of me remembering our conversation, or the yummy meal we had, I remember what's written above. 🌟 It's sad, but I don't feel that way. Instead, I feel a TON GRATITUDE because I've now been able to celebrate FOUR SOBER Birthdays with him. It's all about making REAL memories now. I know I am the Daughter that he's always wanted me to be, and I'm FINALLY proud to be who I am. My life has made a complete 180 since then, and I'm doing things that I'd NEVER imagined in a million years.. Like being a Health and Fitness Coach.... what?! 🌟 My point tonight is to show those of you who are struggling that sobriety is definitely achievable. You CAN live a beautiful life! You've just got to make the CHOICE to do so. Don't be afraid to take that FIRST step! ❀

Happy Halloween! πŸŽƒ Pippa and I went trick or treating with her human cousins, and had a blast. 🍫🍭 My foot held up well in the boot too, which is reassuring, but we'll see how it feels tomorrow. If all is good, then I'll start to take the Pippsters on her walks again. Yay for exercise! πŸ™Œ Can't wait till this damn injury is healed though, man. The cool thing is that I haven't gained any weight at all with not being able to workout (might have even LOST a few ounces). I surprisingly, didn't even crave candy at all tonight, but may have a piece or two at some point, which will obvi be okay cause #balance πŸ’ƒ This mindful eating program is seriously THE BOMB, you guys, and I'm SO grateful to have such an AMAZING tool at my fingertips to keep me in line. πŸ‘Œ Hope ya'll had a great night!!!! Stay safe if you're out and about! ❀

We expanded to the U.K. exactly ONE year ago, and this is me (duh) at the launch event in London! I had the honor of meeting lots of LIFE CHANGERS who were (and still are) SUPER excited to have an amazing, NEW outlet to help others. πŸ™Œ We are now getting ready to expand to another international market next year, which means that our reach will continue to GROW. It's really cool because this opens up a HUGE opportunity to thousands of others, many who will join my team! They will be able to create a life of FREEDOM just like I have, and I can't wait to see that happen. πŸ™Œ So, if you've had thoughts about it being too late to jump into this Coaching gig because the market is saturated, THINK AGAIN! Next year will be our best yet with a variety of new products and programs launching on top of the expansion to this new market. NOW is the time to JUMP my friends, and I'm ready for YOU. πŸ™Œ Simply fill out the, "Join My Team of Life Changers" form via the link in my bio, and I'll be in touch. You def don't wanna have FOMO. ❀

Living by this isn't easy at times, but I've gotten a lot better at it in my sober years. I struggle most with honesty.... not on my end, but on others'. It's difficult for me to understand why people can't be straightforward about things, and I tend to dwell on it. Guess it comes down to expecting the same respect that I give out. I treat others how I want to be treated, and get pretty annoyed when people don't respect my time, make excuses, and give me the run around. πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Anyways, I usually don't write posts like this, but feel it's important to be real on all levels. I've learned a lot in the last 5 years, and one major lesson has been to not sweat the small stuff. So, that's exactly what I'm working on at this point in my life.... finding balance, not letting my emotions take over in certain situations, and doing my personal best every damn day. It's important to be a lifelong learner! ❀
