The feeling of having energy ?and being strong??. Two of the best feelings ever! Well, and being able to walk into your closet and wear everything you own with the greatest of confidence. I didn’t always used to have them. I was lost in what to eat and what workouts worked best for me. Now I have a fire in my soul to help other women find what works for them. I want you to have everything you’ve wanted with your health and fitness goals. There’s no reason not to wait. Start taking care of yourself sooner than later. ?
I love the quote, “To have something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.” This relates so perfect to fitness and nutrition.
If you are tired (literally) and sick of not feeling good in clothes or out of clothes for that matter, you should join me! Starting April 18th, a group of us are hitting it hard. We are getting “Summer Strong.”
Here’s my list of favorites that I think you’ll love too:
?you do it all in the privacy of your own home
?you have a full workout schedule and nutrition guide with those cute color-coded containers for portion
?One meal a day is taken care of for you and you get to keep your fitness program forever
?It’s $5 bucks a day to change the whole course of your confidence for Summer weather
?you get me as your coach and BONUS a private group of ladies who all check in on each other daily (private online group)
Do something new and feel the positive momentum that proceeds giving you the energy and strength you know you desire. I only have room for 3 more girls! Email me at [email protected] or drop you email below. Let’s do this! #summerstrong

Oh the journey!! My social media family has grown tremendously over the last few months. I thought it was time to share a little more about me – the good, weird & ugly.
I’ve seen an incredible amount of personal growth & business growth over the past 3 years. My team is growing by leaps and bounds this year and I couldn’t be more proud. I wanted to share a little more about me or remind some of you what my passions are.
It isn’t all perfect … not even close! I’m a REAL person.
* I grew up a very insecure person
* At the age of 12, I was told by a relative that I might be cute on the outside but as soon as I opened my mouth, nothing important came out
* I met Jesus at age 12 but didn’t surrender my life to Him until I was 23
* Really “meeting” Him was the pivotal moment that changed the course of my life forever. He heals my hurts and loves on me daily.
* I had a pony named Partner growing up and learned how to french braid on his tail. Growing up on 5 acres with all sorts of animals was so fun!
* I dabbled with drugs and the party scene until I met Jesus. Smoked cigarettes for over 5 years until I was 23 and then quit cold turkey
*On my 13th birthday I ate almost a whole bulk container of Sour Patch Kids and every Christmas it was a bulk container of Jelly Belly’s
* I’ve since traded dried fruit for my old “gummy” addiction and feel tons better
* I am very sensitive to foods and finally realized I was gluten-intolerant after having my second baby. I won’t touch the stuff.
* There have been times where I’ve struggled with depression and secluding myself into a shell. Exercise is the BEST drug for me to combat this
* I am learning how to have a “thicker skin” and ONLY look at the positive in life
– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –
* I do not have a college degree
* I’m addicted to spray tans
* I’m a makeup artist and esthetician by trade but have become literally obsessed with helping women feel beautiful from the inside out with health and fitness
* Working at Nordstrom for 8 years left me with a nice appetite for all things beautiful #shopping
* I’m an “outgoing” introvert and have a fierce phobia of microphones
* I had my heart broken at 19 and I went from one unsuccessful relationship to the next… always missing something…
* I had to take a year off from dating (I’ve been on more blind dates than one person should ever go on) to let Jesus come into my heart and heal it
* I ironically met my husband on a blind date ;)* I was in debt when I got married and never thought I would make a decent income….was used to living paycheck to paycheck
* We’ve been married 10 years and I adore my man! Being a wife and mom is the BEST thing ever to me
*Having a girl and a boy is what I’ve always dreamed of. Love their personalities and snuggles.
* I love working to help support my family and also grow as a person so I can teach my kiddos about failing forward and how to push past tough obstacles
* I’m not a certified fitness trainer but I love helping women find their inner confidence through their physical strength
* I get excited to coach other women build successful businesses from home so they can have freedom to choose if they want to work outside of the home or not
* I love working with those that stay in the game….the consistent ones who will not give up
…. because – that – is – me!!
I am NO longer that shy insecure girl but a CONQUEROR! That is ALL because of what Jesus has done in my life…. all the way down to Beachbody. He knew I needed this business so He could refine me and show me I had a voice.
There is always a message in our messes. The journey is the beautiful part of it all.
So… while I LOVE fitness, nutrition, make up, fashion, hair, home decor and all things girly -everything does not come easy to me. I have to work hard at it!
Go buy ‘The Magic of Thinking Big’ on Amazon. You will NOT regret it!
If you need someone in your corner – I’m that girl. I’d love to hear more about you 🙂
Thank you for your support here and on social media. I truly appreciate the community that has grown around and with me…
Have a wonderful night!

I love what I do. My husband wrote this for me on Facebook. He puts it in words that I have a tough time saying.
Matt – “I won’t lie. We have been in a bit of a rough patch these last 4 months. Between Stacy‘s health and just a bunch of little things it has not been easy. Has it been as bad as others….absolutely not. But it has not been….well…..smooth.
Through all of this, my amazing wife, has continually kept the goal of helping others a major priority. And I must give a bit of back story. We really haven’t been very good at this Beachbody “business” part. I did it just because I had such amazing results! She did it as well, just because she had amazing results….and it made us want to help others feel the same!!!
Well, back in November of 2013, this amazing lady of mine, decided she was going to make this a real part of our lives. She started making goals. This was definitely not a new concept, but she really had not made goals in the past! She lived! She worked hard! But, she never wrote goals down and set out to achieve them. Since December of 2013, she has helped at least 6 people a month start the process of transforming themselves.
She literally has helped at least 6 people every month for over 2 years straight! She has blown me away with her diligence, her consistency and her passion to serve others, while still being a mom and taking care of her family! She loves all these women and many husbands too, as they have gone on to change their bodies, both inside and out!
So congrats to my beautiful wife, who I look up to, and get to partner in this thing called life. Congrats on officially hitting Success Club 10 All-Star! I love being apart of your passion and seeing your heart through the thick and thin! Thanks for putting up with me and helping so many others along the way! We love what we do!!!”
I love what I do, and it is not a joke and there is no hidden agenda. I love seeing women reach their goals and I love watching them become the woman they always wanted!

My girl is someone who pushes me to dream bigger, push harder and really begin facing fears. Her sweet driven personality is always ready for a new adventure. We are similar yet so different. ?
When I made the decision to start coaching, I knew it would push me to lean into God more and become the leader He created me to be. I want to lead her in the way of bravery, structure and how I’m continually facing fears. Two things that don’t come easily to my introverted personality. Last year in MOPS I actually asked to do the door prize announcements to face a fear head on. Microphone phobia is a REAL thing ?? I thankfully stopped shaking by the end of the year #yay ?
But If I can’t be facing fears, stepping out to new adventures, HOW would I teach her? I could have stayed trapped in my small world and let all my insecurities grow OR I could start doing things that scared me and realize that those fears aren’t as scary as they seem.
One verse that runs through my mind when I think of how I want us to live…Proverbs 31:25 “She is clothed in strength and dignity, she laughs at the days to come.”
If you love helping people, want to grow and learn more about yourself and push past some walls you’ve put up you should look into what I do. Start facing fears! If you want to live a more fit and healthy life-this is the perfect spot for you! We start a Sneak Peek into coaching Monday and I’d love to have you join us. It’s a 5 day private group with a short video to watch each day. Email me at [email protected] if you’re wanting to take a peek!!

Tacoma Beachbody Coach
I am a mother, wife, and lover of all things fitness and nutrition. I am a Tacoma Beachbody Coach. The thing to remember, is that 98% of what we do as coaches is either in our personal homes or online! As a mother of two kiddos, 5 and 3, it was essential to me to be able to work from home. I definitely work. It is not just a side passion, this is part of my life now. I love helping others achieve their goals. Not only in fitness and nutrition, but in helping others reach their financial goals. It is not just a one year proposition and commitment. It is a lifestyle and takes multiple years to build a strong business. The rewards are unbelievable. The friends I have made, the people I have seen change, the free trips, the love of life! It has been a crazy adventure so far, but definitely amazing!
Tacoma Beachbody Coach that can Coach Anyone, Anywhere!
I love living in the Pacific Northwest. I specifically love being a Tacoma Beachbody Coach. I have really enjoyed helping hundreds of women in this area and now around the United States and Canada reach their goals. To feel better in their own skin. I have a coach in British Columbia, Alberta, Quebec, Florida, North Carolina….you get my point! It works for everyone anywhere in North America! So feel free to reach out to me. Don’t be afraid to start. Your health and nutrition is so important! It affects every part of your life. Your energy is where everything begins. When you are healthy and your nutrition is on point, you really will see such a change in your life.
Tacoma Beachbody Coach, Being Local
It is fun to have local coaches. I love getting together and brainstorming. Meeting and sharing stories. I love the friendships. Setting goals with my team and watching them grow is one of the most fulfilling parts of this lifestyle! Don’t hesitate to reach out! Feel free to chat with me here. Or, friend me on Facebook (here’s the link) and message me! I can’t take the first step for you. So talk to me! Reach out, I will love partnering with you in this journey!!

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! ??

My Healing Process
Oh the healing process….having patience in this area is not my at all my forte. As I sit and recover from the 3 surgeries I’ve had over the past 2 1/2 months, I think about this time last year. It’s funny how health changes, and how life changes. My hubs is in the exclusive Test Group for the soon to be released 22 Minute Hard Corps, and I haven’t worked out at all. His nutrition is on point and mine is right up there but not as perfect. He looks better this year than last, me…not as much.
When I see this picture it makes me proud. It was at our earned trip to Cancun, Mexico with our Beachbody family. I almost had a six-pack…say, what??!! I worked relentlessly, I pushed almost daily. Sure, it was simple nutrition and 30-40 minute workouts at home, but it worked because my heart and soul were in it. These plans I talk about work!!!
What this makes me want is to say that YOU can give your heart and soul to your health. You can make better choices and continue to learn about what works best for your body. You can get over any hang ups that hold you back. You can get stronger and gain flexibility, if you really want it.
I am growing ever more thankful as each day passes as the healing process continues. The fact that I am even able to do fitness at all is a HUGE blessing for me. I whisper prayers of thanks as I do my workouts because I know working my body is a gift from God. Feeling the endorphin high and muscle soreness is an addiction I will never quit!!! I miss it so much! For those of you working out today, will you comment below and post that you got your sweat on? You better believe when I am released to workout again, I will be ALL over it! Our next trip is 6 weeks away and I want to feel just as good as I did last year knowing I gave my all….heart and soul! So now I will continue waiting as the healing process takes its course!

Clean Eating = Transformation Tuesday
Clean eating is all about the discipline of my mind. It is a battle. I fight me every day, all the time. Today’s battle? Kombucha or Wine? I’m going with Kombucha ? I win!!!! I started a clean eating group this last Monday with an amazing group of women. We decided that we would make clean eating a discipline. That we would make it a focus to not allow ourselves to make choices we regret. We would bring in a collective of clean recipes, ideas and accountability.
Last week in our 5 day clean eating group, I had 19 of the women share how much weight they had loss. There was a total of 108.5 lbs lost as a group!!!!!! Are you kidding me?!! That was 5.7 lbs per person. I don’t have enough exclamation points for this post! ? That is why clean eating and watching your sugars and alcohols pays off. If you were one of the girls who joined us, thank you and✋ high five! ??#girlbosses #onamission
We have monthly clean eating groups. They are five days, they are organized and allow you to really get a whole bunch of ideas to learn more about what it is to eat clean. This January we have 201 women participating! It is so amazing! Sharing so much information is just awesome and it allows everyone to get a feel what works for a collaborative of people.
Don’t miss out! We love helping each other. Feel free to comment here, or reach out to me on Facebook! Looking forward to connecting and helping you learn more about clean eating and the joy that it can bring into your life and the life of your family!

The Busy Mom
Who reading this is a busy mom?!! I don’t think there is such a thing as not being a busy mom. Busy is our middle name. If I’m not doing laundry, cleaning, calling, emailing, texting, picking up toys, helping with homework, cooking, cleaning some more, breaking up a fight, counseling, drinking wine……..you get my point and I’m sure you can relate! Oh I forgot going to the grocery store, paying bills, doing makeup (randomly), driving to school, picking up from school, you name it…..we do it. We don’t know any different but it wears on us and at times we can get lazy….at least I can.
Then, while you’re doing all the things above, cause none of us are a busy mom at all, we get the, “Mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mooooooooooooooom!!!!”, about 50 times a day! 😉 We are distracted all the time, interrupted and everything in between. It is not easy being a busy mom, for me of two kiddos. I can’t imagine those of you structuring life with more! I applaud you!
But we have to remember something. Being a busy mom is not an excuse, it’s a reason????? They watch you, they pick up your habits, they need you to help them learn why they eat veggies. None of us are perfect but we can sure try. It may feel like survival mode for a bit but then it becomes easier and easier. See, I catch myself getting impatient. Instead of giving my kids broccoli, I put a gluten-free frozen pizza in the oven because it’s easy. Is there anything wrong with the pizza? No. But in this mindset it could be setting the wrong example for our kiddos. They see me being tired and I do the easy thing. I don’t want them to do the easy thing. I want them to give life their all! Their best! To be excellent.
So let’s encourage each busy mom to push through. Whether we are a “working” mom with a job or a “working” stay-at-home mom with a job ;), we all have to keep pushing one another! We need to remember the little guys and push through for them. Keeping focused on allowing them to see us push through as we press on to be the best busy mom we can be! I love working with women to be their best. A lot come to me having given up one of their most important strengths…their health. Are you someone that is fighting that?! That’s my specialty! Supporting a busy mom that has allowed the “crazy” to creep in a little too far. Trust me….I’ve been there, we all have. Don’t let another day pass you bye!! Come join me and the hundreds of women that are all on the same journey!
And for the record, the loose stomach skin we have from babies actually looks and feels tighter when our body fat percentage goes down!!! Mine fluctuates and I can really tell. It’s crazy! I call it love skin?? we love why we have it and hate it all at the same time. #loveskin #momlife
Go here and tell me about YOU! ——> Join us now! Come join a group of women that look to support each other as we all are a busy mom in our life and we need each other to stay the course!
