The Girl with no Goals
The girl in the before picture never made goals, felt self-conscience ALL the time, and had no idea how she was going to teach her kids about not giving up-because that’s all she knew how to do. She wasn’t in a place of need or guidance from God because she balanced it all on her own shoulders. She stayed in her comfort zone. Goals weren’t even in her thoughts. She ate her emotions and hid her true feelings from just about everyone. This was 9 years ago.
Fast forward 6 years and there was an opportunity placed in front of her. She watched as others shared their stories of where they came from and what they had accomplished. The goals they had made and accomplished. She wondered, why not me? Why couldn’t she earn extra money and make my own hours, actually make goals and hit them?
Working at Nordstrom’s left me wanting to not give up the niceties of life. Hello fashion, shoes and cosmetics!! Being able to support the family using the talents God gave me would be a win/win, right? Being healthy in mind, body and spirit for a career seemed pretty legit. To have something that fit in the cracks of my mommy-life and build on itself seemed too good to be true. I didn’t have all the health answers but I knew what was working for me and loved encouraging people. To have something that would teach me to step out, learn to fail and get back up and would continually build my character. Here’s more of my full story!
The Girl with Goals…..and Hitting Them!
Fast forward to present day. I’ve been able to use the gifts God has given me. I actually have made goals and hit them!! To invite others to join me in having more energy for their families. To stay home with the kiddos and work in my Juicy Couture sweats. To be challenged daily and fight the good fight of life and NEVER give up.
Maybe you don’t have kids yet but you want to make a career out of something that keeps you accountable to your own health goals? Maybe you’re a mommy but want something on the side for yourself? Or perhaps you want to grow a business at your own pace for when the kiddos are in school full time or off to college? Maybe you want to switch careers to something more meaningful than what you’re currently doing.
As I look at how much I’ve learned and grown, I can’t keep this to myself. I set goals, hit them and now help others do the same. Coaching has given this worker-bee girl a sense of pride and purpose. It allows us as a family to give more and be together lots. No more punching time-clocks for me. Only freedom to pay it forward and teach others how to share their stories. Message me to join our group next week to learn more….let’s hit some goals! ??

Hammer and Chisel Starting Now!
Friday workout d-to-the-DONE! Had my little man right beside me! I’m officially starting Hammer and Chisel Monday ??
Was just talking to a friend about how I used to sabotage all my hard work just for three weeks of Christmas “fun.” You know where that “fun” would leave me? ??Bummed out, my clothes all tight, & self-esteem lowered because I had let myself down.
Matt and I are keeping a tight reign this year. He’s actually doing better than me so far! I vow to make this Christmas season more about the events and people than all the food. ? Shakeology is daily….maybe even twice! Definitely not joking around! I vow to start 2016 strong! I vow to stay next to all my clients and cheer them on. ??? We have so much more self-control and determination than we give ourselves credit. ?✨⚡
The sports bra and capris are both Unity, purchased at Nordstrom Rack….picked out by my husband! 🙂
Now to go wash my spray tan craziness off in the shower? Let me know if you want to know more about Hammer and Chisel!

This is my weight loss journey.
Oh my goodness, weight loss is no joke! It is so much easier to gain it than make it go away! How many can relate with that?! It took a lot of hard work and patience, as well as consistency to for weight loss to happen. In my case, with the help of Chalene Johnson and Turbofire, as well as getting my nutrition on point grounded with Shakeology, I was motivated to have a transformation like never before!! Come with me and watch how my life was changed and how you can too!!!
How I Reached My Weight Loss Goal!!
This is me in a nut shell!! I love Turbofire, it has changed my life. I am a stay at home mom, with two beautiful children. My kids and husband are my life! I knew I wanted to get in the best shape of my life and finally found a way to do it. This was me prior to Turbofire, and actually before being pregnant with kids. Being married and lazy, I started getting chunky. I was eating way too much and definitely not eating the right foods. I needed some weight loss bad!!
I purchased Turbofire and my life will never be the same, the weight loss began. I not only lost weight, I transformed into what I had always wanted. I had gone to the gym most my life. I had done weights, circuit training, some crossfit……. You name it I had tried it. But working out from home, consistently, with a trainer/coach like Chalene Johnson, changed the game.
I also changed my eating. I started using Shakeology. This gave me both energy and a better frame of mind. I literally could feel the difference as my body got used to it the first few weeks. Now it is a staple and my entire family has it everyday. I also found out I was allergic to gluten. I removed it from my diet and has really changed my life. The bloat is gone and feel so much better.
I want to encourage women and men, that no matter where you are in your life, you can always make a change, you can have a transformation!!! I thought I was doing great before kids. I thought I was in great shape! I was so wrong and I feel so much better now! I lost 41lbs in the eight months….that’s a lot of weight loss. I since have lost about 3 or 4 more. My body likes to be around 137 or 138, being 5’7″! Even though I feel I need more weight loss, my body really doesn’t like going below that. It has been an incredible journey.
I finally have my Lulu gear fitting the way I want! That is the benefit of working hard to reach your goals. Since my transformation I still workout all the time and am continually transforming into a better “me”!! What is holding you back from becoming a better “you”?!! I want to help. The journey is not easy, but it is doable and can be done.
I love helping others and this has been life changing. You may need a life change and I would love to see you transform into a more healthy and fit you!! Feel free to contact me….I will help you along the road as you create your own transformation!!

Women’s clothing are hard to come by as a mom cause we are always in crazy yoga pants mode so much of the time. I am usually fighting to have any semblance of femininity at home with two little crazies running around. I love getting out and dressing at least semi-fashionable. This little outfit is simple, cute and allows me to still transition back to mom mentality instantly! Oh, I I love Nordstrom Rack! Elbow patches, ripped knees and booties! Yay for a kid-free mommy morning. The fastest 3 hrs I’ve ever had!
- Sweater is from Brass Plum at Nordstroms.
- The black jeans are from TBD, Treasure and Bond at Nordstrom Rack.
- Booties are from Brass Plum at Nordstroms as well
- Gold watch is Michael Kors.

Nordstrom Rack Super Find
New #nikes from Nordstrom Rack are making me want to workout today.???? Matt snagged these, Nike Air Max 2015 shoes, for me and they were a steal!! My husband is the best at finding deals at Nordstrom Rack. Whether it is the main store or the Rack, he is always looking for deals. He wants me to feel good as I strive to do my best daily. It is so important to have support.
I worked at Nordstroms for over 8 years as a makeup artist. I love Laurie Mercier and was the counter manager when they first came to Seattle. I love everything about it. I love everything about Nordstroms, the lines they carry, the service, the training I was given. It is such a classy store in every sense of the word. It is what I pride myself over, I was trained by the best. Even the Nordstroms Cafe has the best food….and they have some healthy choices! One of my husband and my favorites is the NIÇOISE SALAD WITH SALMON! Click on the name to see the menu!
Whenever we go shopping, it usually revolves around a Nordstrom Rack. There is no better place for returns. My husband had a pair of jeans he had never worn, but we had removed the tags. We took them back and they accepted them and gave us a full cash refund!!
To be honest, I haven’t worked out much this week since I was nursing my strained neck (2 car accidents in a year) and my diet wasn’t as great as I wanted (late night peanut butter anyone?) but I was up this morning telling myself to just get it done! 30 minutes goes by so fast. New Nordstrom Rack, Nike Air Max workout shoes get me in the mode!
The compound effect of a daily routine adds up for the good but it can also add up for the bad. Review what your compounding effect is and tweak it if you aren’t going in the right direction. You deserve to look and feel your best ? Go check out a Nordstrom Rack!
