The Process of Understanding True Freedom
Freedom? What does that word even mean?
✨Steady Eddie. That’s how I describe my personality. No surprises or risks too often for me, no thanks. With 8 years in Nordstrom cosmetics and 5 years in esthetics, I stick with what I love.
👨👩👧👦Once I became a mom of two, I needed something to let me stay home and be mama but also something that would help me live a healthier (more accountable) lifestyle. Something that wouldn’t make me work harder, longer hours but that would have a positive compounding effect in my life. After I lost 40 lbs of baby weight and bloat, I was still not convinced this coaching opportunity was for me. Why? Because network marketing made me feel icky, like this strange salesperson or something. I had even made Matt pinky swear that we were only signing up for the discount, nothing else. But I was in these private groups of coaches and had access to The National Wakeup Call so of course my curiosity got the best of me. There were so many women who’s confidence and purpose in life had done a 180 degree turn since they started coaching. Everything was more positive!
🙇🏼♀️Mainly what stuck out to my small way of thinking, was the freedom. The freedom with their time and money. Those two didn’t go together in my brain. I mean, we all want a good amount of both, am I right? Not just for selfish reasons but to be able to bless others and not feel tied down to a pay check or debt.
✈️To be able to pick up and go to Disneyland or on a weekend getaway whenever we wanted sounded so cool to me! To experience life through travel and give to my favorite causes sounded incredible.
Consistency Creates Freedom
🗓Now, 3 years later, I can see it happening to me and so many of my friends who took this leap with me. I trusted the process and figured the time was going to pass anyway. I simply share my love for this lifestyle that got me out of my baby blues funk and let me be free from a day job! The only thing I had to gain was freedom and I can say I’ve gained so much more than that! I feel accomplished, more confident, able to push past those old comfort zones. Almost like I’m a different person. God has blessed me with this so how can I not share!???

First off, I love you. I appreciate you because you continually remind me of how STRONG I am.
You carried two beautiful miracles within your walls.
You look strong and defined when I’m on point with my fitness & nutrition (aka no sugar and wine) and bloated to crap when I’m being lazy. When it looks like I’ve swallowed a giant marshmallow, I’m reminded it’s GO time again and I need to check myself and get moving. In the right lighting, with a good spray tan and the right angles, you look lean in pictures. But when I’m in plank and doing quick feet, well, you look less than desirable.
Dear abs, you motivate me to keep pushing because you’re the very last thing to change. The very last 🙄. You look smoother and smoother with the muscle development growing under you, so thanks. I’ll keep pushing. You look BETTER now than before I had kids so I’ll take it. You may never be what I want you to be but I’m forever grateful for your motivation. You keep me curious as to what can truly happen if I push hard!
As for the loose skin…well, I call it LOVE skin because perfection isn’t reality and I love why it’s loose.
With all my gratitude, Stacy
*Please share with a mama who needs this. Write a little “Dear Abs” letter to yourself! Remember we are strong, mighty and God created us perfect the way we are!!*

This is my journey. In the picture on the left, I felt trapped in my own body. Because I didn’t struggle with my weight much growing up, my 20’s were a hard spot. I couldn’t eat what I wanted anymore and keep the weight off. It was so HARD for me to lose weight. I swear, I would have given my right arm to drop JUST 5 lbs. I had no idea how to eat “clean”, I only knew crash diets or extreme cleanses. You know, I tried so many different things that ended up hurting me. Can you relate? I thought every meal needed to taste perfect and literally be covered in cheese. I would sometimes eat fast food twice a day and often leave the house at 8 p.m. to go buy ice cream, chocolate or sour patch kids. Finally, I came to the fact, I knew there was something better for me and I was on the hunt! I knew I could feel alive inside and happy with my body. I believed it!
The search finally led me to a community of people who had found what I wanted. They found balance and simplicity. They found a system that was normal and easy and totally doable for someone like me. A busy mom of two who just needed a plan.🙋🏼 I needed to take care of myself for my family and find a way to teach healthy habits to my kids. I was so happy and prayed it would work for me!! Well, it did!
I found daily superfoods/vitamins that replaced a meal or snack. I found friends who needed to do stuff at home while their kids napped but we could still check in online for support. I found short (freaking awesome) workouts that get it done and transform bodies. I found my light. ✨The girl that I had been searching for could finally come to life. The weight came off, the habits were formed. I figured out how to eat so that I felt good for my workouts and my body would respond in a positive way.
The journey continues and I now get to help others “find” what they are looking for. If you at all feel lost or frustrated…please reach out. I can promise you the small investment you’ll make to start your positive journey will be the best money you’ve ever spent!!! It’s dollars a day for HUGE gains. I’ve never seen anything quite like this and I’ll never stop spreading the word on how awesome it is!!! Love yourself and your family enough to make this change❤️Our next challenge is Sept. 5th!
