Before/After

Don’t let your before keep you from your after!

12002149_10208168096628309_6091427970586038422_nBefore my workout:
–> I was half asleep
–> I was grumpy

After my workout:
–> I feel alive and awake
–> I feel strong and empowered

It doesn’t matter what your before looks like. All that matters is that you get to the after.

What do you see?

What do you see when you look in the mirror?

–> Are you seeing a distorted image of who you are?
–> Are you seeing only flaws and imperfections?
–> Are you comparing yourself to everyone?

Here’s some truth: YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL JUST THE WAY YOU ARE!!

Stop talking to yourself negatively.
Stop beating yourself up for not being a certain weight or size.
Stop being so hard on yourself.

Love yourself where you are today, even if you want to change. It’s impossible to reach new goals if you’re constantly berating yourself for who you are today.

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
Repeat after me: YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL

Transformation Tuesday

Dani 21 Day Result

Transformation Tuesday!!

I think all too often we like to focus on just the physical transformation and today I would like to spotlight a new coach in my downline.

This is her transformation and in 21 days she changed her body on the outside, she lost 10 lbs and 10 inches, but more importantly she had an internal transformation as well. I had the pleasure of talking to her yesterday and I was absolutely blown away with her story.

Here is what she told me:
–> She’s no longer depressed or anxious.
–> She feels confident again and she hasn’t felt that way in years.
–> Two serious health issues, that she’s been dealing with for years are correcting themselves.

She followed the 21 Day Fix meal plan completely, did her workouts and drank Shakeology. Her life is completely different and the happiness I saw in her eyes was priceless!

LOVE YOUR BODY

Day 16

Your body is an amazing thing and you need to respect it by feeding it healthy food, taking care of it with exercise and loving it where it is today. Even if you’re not at your goal you need to love your body for all that it is today. Your body is doing amazing things for you as you work towards your goals.

Get up and WORKOUT!!

Get up and workout before your brain realizes what you’re doing!

–> You’ll have more energy all day!
–> If you wait until later in the day you might skip it.
–> Its easier to fight excuses early because they’re still half asleep!
–> It’s one less thing on your to do list for the day.
–> You have a fresh coffee buzz, use it! 

Do you prefer to workout in the morning or the evening?

Why Not You?

Why Not You

Have you ever felt like your life was completely out of control and the things you wanted were very far out of reach? Your heart was full of big dreams but you had no idea how you would make them happen? All you wanted was stability but your life was filled with chaos?

That was me last year when we moved to Washington. Our life of stability had come crashing down and we had to start over. I knew I wanted to stay home with my kids but I needed a way to help support our family financially. It was in those dark moments that I decided I would give Beachbody my all. I would do everything I could to grow my business and keep my dreams alive.

It’s been one year since I made that decision and In July I earned my biggest monthly income to date. My income grew from $249.85 last July to $3,283.76 this July. Over 1,000% growth in one year. WOW!

Do I share this to brag and boast about how awesome I am? NOPE. In fact, it scares me more than anything to share this with you. But I need you to know that if I can do it, SO CAN YOU!!

I’m not doing anything that I couldn’t teach you how to do. I don’t have any special secrets that help me be successful. The only thing that I’m doing is showing up every single day, working hard and pushing towards my goals. I have a huge desire to make my dreams come true. I want to buy a home, be able to travel and have freedom and financial stability.

If you’d like to know how I make money while working at home and helping people get fit and have thought “I could probably do that” but weren’t sure where to go from there, now is your chance to get some information.

Did I mention it’s FREE for active duty military and their spouses to coach plus it’s now FREE FOR ALL VETERANS who served in the military too?

I’m hosting a FREE Sneak Peek into coaching group where I’ll explain…
—> WHAT a Beachbody coach does everyday.
—> HOW it’s completely possible to build an income working part time doing what you love from home.
—> WHY coaching could help you live a more fulfilled life – in all aspects of your life
—> SEE IF it’s the right fit for YOU!

No pressure — no commitments — just learn more about it if I have peaked your interest! It’s a fitness lovers DREAM JOB — but you don’t have to be a fitness expert AT ALL! I want to shout about it from the rooftops because it has been LIFE CHANGING for me. Come hang out with me here on Facebook and see what it’s all about.

Comment below, “WHY NOT ME!” and I’ll add you into the group. If you have questions, send me a message at ashleyjoy80@gmail.com or to apply for more information:

3 Day Refresh:

Have you ever let your eating get out of control and before you know it the scale has creeped up 5 pounds and you feel bloated and gross? That was me earlier this week.

You might think that because I’m a fitness coach I am perfect with my nutrition and never struggle with eating bad foods. But the truth is I struggle just like everyone. I love Cheetos, beer, cake and Starbucks. I usually live by the rule of moderation (good clean eating 90% of the time and 10% freedom). However, sometimes I slip and before I know it the equation is 50/50 and the scale starts creeping up and I start to feel gross. When I start to slip up I need a complete refocus. I usually do the Shakeology Cleanse but this time I tried the 3 Day Refresh. 

Results: I lost 4.6 lbs and 2 inches off my waist.

The question I always get after doing a cleanse is “will the weight stay off?”

First of all, now that I’m done I’m putting my scale away for awhile. I only get on my scale when I’m doing a cleanse or following a new fitness program. Second, everyone’s weight fluctuates up and down a few pounds. I don’t use the scale as a measurement of my success. It’s just a tool to show that I’m detoxing my body and losing the bloating that was plaguing me.

But every time I do a cleanse my body has felt fantastic and has stayed the same shape afterwards until I let my eating slide again. Will it go up or down from here? I’m not sure because I don’t plan on being a slave to the scale. The point of this cleanse wasn’t to lose weight but to detox my body and refocus my mind.

If you’re interested in doing the 3 Day Refresh or the Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse just send me a message at ashleyjoy80@gmail.com and we can see if it’s the right fit for youRefresh Results

CHANGE!

Change can be hard but you can’t go places that your growth won’t take you. In life, you’re going to change. It’s inevitable.

I think it’s amazing that at any moment you can decide to change your life.

You can say, “I don’t like where this is taking me” and then you can change your path.

You can at any moment, decide to change your health, change your relationships, change your happiness and change your direction.

Your story is being written and you have the power to change how it ends!

My story: Before and After

Transformation 3

I remember seeing this family photo after it was taken and cringing. I had a smile on my face but inside I wasn’t happy and I was thankful Phoebe’s head covered my stomach. I was overwhelmed, frustrated, resentful and unsure how to find the time to take care of myself. Before I had Austin I had been running but after having him I didn’t know how to juggle all the chaos.

Day after day I tried not to think about how unhappy I was but eventually I couldn’t take it anymore and I had to do something different. When Austin was almost one I decided it was time for me to put myself back on my priority list. It was time for me to love myself enough to find the time to change. I didn’t take a before picture because I was unhappy with my body. Looking back now I wish I would have taken one so I could see how far I’ve come.

It’s been a long journey, filled with a lot of ups and downs. I’ve had setbacks and injuries but I’ve had so many victories too. I’ve ran countless miles pushing a jogging stroller, done hours and hours of workout DVDs and the best part isn’t that I’m smaller or wear a different size. My victory is in that I’ve found me. I’ve found a passion to help others. I’ve found a career. But more importantly I’ve found that taking care of me helps me take care of others better.

Why do I share all of this? 
Because I understand how it feels to be overwhelmed and unsure of where to start.
Because I know how it feels to be unhappy but stuck at the same time.
Because I know the fear of failure and lack of belief in myself.
Because I know that if I can change my life, so can you.

Because I know I can help you too.
