Everything is going to be okay

Life, it can pack up a punch sometimes, right? You wake up with determination and before you know it the day runs you over and you’re just trying to stay on your feet.

–> You might be holding some lottery tickets that didn’t pan out.
–> You might be fighting with loved ones or friends.RTC 252
–> You might have had the best of intentions to stay positive but the day ran you over.
–> You might be struggling to find the sun through the clouds.
–> You might be dealing with sickness.
–> You might be working at the worst job ever.

You’re facing something hard right now, I know it.

But listen to me, every little thing is going to be okay. It might not all come together today, tomorrow or this week but it will all be okay.

Inhale.
Exhale.
Just breath.
It will all be okay.

✔ It’s simple.
✔ It’s smart.
✔ It’s doable (for everyone)
✔ It’s tailored to you (no one size fits all meal plan)

When you start this program with me and commit you are getting:

✔ The meal plan with the containers.
✔ DVD and direct online access to your home workouts that work every single body part and incorporate both strength training and cardio.
✔ 1 entire month of a super food shake that curbs hunger, reduces cravings and tastes like dessert.
✔ One on one coaching.
✔ Online accountability from a private group that will support you along your journey.
✔ One week to learn how to shop for healthy food, prepare for the journey and learn how to meal plan.

You have nothing to lose..except some inches and you’ll gain a ton of confidence. I guarantee this program works and if it doesn’t, you’ll get your money back!

 

Your story isn’t over yet.

A year ago, I was lost.

We had been out of the Air Force for 6 months and things were still a mess. Everything about our future was uncertain. I was filled with fear and scared.

But in my heart I knew that that’s not how my story would end. In my darkest moments I clung to the hope that I had the power to change our ending.

–> I got up everyday and worked through my fears.
–> I wiped my tears and poured my heart into my business.
–> I used my story to help inspire others.
–> I showed up when it was hard and didn’t back down.
–> I never, ever gave up.

Looking back, I know that those hard times were put in my path to shape who I am today. I’ve learned more about myself, refined my vision for my life and grown into who I needed to be to make my dreams come true.

Here’s the truth: You might be going through some crazy dark moments and life might feel impossible. The burden’s you’re carrying feel so heavy and you have no idea how you’ll make it through. But that was how I felt last year too and I made it out. So will you. Keep believing, keep trusting and never lose hope. You can change your ending. Just have the faith, it all comes together when it’s supposed to.RTC

Workout because you love yourself.

I spent a lot of energy hating my body over the years. I would look in the mirror and see all the things I didn’t like and never see the true beauty and strength that lied under my perceived flaws.

But, hating my body didn’t serve me. It destroyed my confidence and made me feel miserable about myself. Is this you too?

I had to change my thinking and love my body in all its glory.

–> My body grew three amazing kids, it carried me miles and miles when I ran a marathon, it holds my kids close in embraces, it’s strong and doesn’t get the credit it should.

I love my body enough to take care of it and challenge it daily.

Life is too short to be at war with yourself and hate your body. Love yourself for all that you are and take care of yourself not because you have to, but because you can.

 

 

Give yourself grace

RTC 222

I had a reality check this morning when I stepped on the scale. I had gained 7 pounds in 3 weeks and my first reaction was to beat myself up. I fall into old habits quickly and for most of my life I have hated myself and never felt like I was good enough.

But then I thought, what would I tell my friend if she were in my shoes this morning. I’d say, “Give yourself some grace.”

The truth is, I’ve been fighting through some depression this summer. I normally love to exercise and my eating isn’t always perfect but I can usually keep it good for 90% of the time. But lately, it’s been a free for all on food and zero exercise. I’ve been letting my emotions control all of my actions. I’ve been a mess and I can’t take it anymore.

All of this ends today. I need to find me again. It’s not about the number on the scale but how I feel in my own skin. I want to feel confident and happy again. I want to be proud of my hard work.

Operation: Find Ashley Again is now in session.

Change it up, have fun!

Truth: I’ve been struggling to workout recently. I don’t know where my mojo is and I have just felt like I’ve been in a funk forever. Today, I decided I would no longer wait for it to kick in…I just did it anyways.

Sometimes you have to act your way into a feeling instead of waiting to feel like it. I’m so glad I pushed myself because I had so much fun.

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!
