90 days living on a farm

90 days living on a farm

Hey there!!  It seems like forever that I sat down and shared my life in a blog post!!  Next week will be 90 days that we moved from a 950 square home on a quarter lot to 2400 square home with 32 acres to have room to raise our kids.  Since moving our family of 5 we added two horses, 10 chickens, 4 pigs, and two goats!!  Oh and let’s not forget the one late night we saw a snapping turtle (he hasn’t been back around).  It’s been a total learning experience yes I grew up on a 40 acre farm but we only ever had horses and a few barn cats. Since moving the first night we brought our new horse home she got out and let’s just say we met the neighbors in a hurry.

Weekends before we would just leave and find things to do elsewhere!  Now instead waking up getting an early morning run in and sitting down to write out a to-do list of projects I would like to work on around the farm.  In the past 90 days we’ve had lots of company over and been able to share our home with others.  I love cooking and always new each of those “kitchen” items would be used some day.  In the kitchen the pantry has an entire section to hold all these random treasures from odd size serving platters to fun cloth napkins.

I’m not going to paint a picture that this wasn’t hard work and a lot of family time was missed while my husband was working and I was home with the kids in diapers.  But creating those memories now made all the sacrifices worth it.  Most nights we load the family up in the buggy take a family ride to feed the deer, check the fencing, check the property, and just breath.  The kids might watch 30 minutes a day of TV rather Josie and Clint are out doors “digging” up my flowers with the excavator and hauling it away with their toy dump trucks.  Growing up we didn’t even have cable till I was in 7th grade and I bagged my parents to get it, I would go to school and others would be talking about what they watched.  Looking back I’m thankful for being able to say “movie” night as a family of 5 was watched on a 13” TV rented from the local store.  I wonder what our kids will grow up and remember from living on a farm. 
Clint is the same age I was when we moved to the farm I grew up on.  One of my first memories was my daddy riding his motorcycle up the back driveway and letting me ride in front of him.
In the last 90 days there has been soooo many things that needed replaced or fixed after the place being empty for 8 years from all new plumbing in and outside of the home thankful that my husband is hands on, owns an excavator, and my beachbody business.  All new gutters, all the fields mowed, fencing fix, new electrical system in the barn, barn scrapped and painted, stalls stained, new pipes in the barn, issues with the well water, all in all each project and unexpected issue is just part of moving to a place that hasn’t been maintained.  The grass was soooo long and wasn’t mowed once prior to us moving in June 1st this year. 
For each project my little man is out there helping my husband with whatever he is up to!!  He has so many ideas and I must add good ideas!!  Clint is creating his own list of projects he wants to do on the farm!!  I can’t wait to see what the next 90 days brings!  Perhaps a few more animals!!  Yes we are getting cows as well!!  Clint really would like a pet turtle and talks about it every night at bed, so we will see!!  This is our crazy life and I guess I’m the zoo keeper!!

Coaching from home

Coaching from home

Hey there!!  Welcome to my blog it’s a Sunny Sunday in Pa!!  An odd time as a mother of three to have a home without little ones needing a drink, help in the bathroom, or screaming because one took a toy the other one was playing with.  I paint a picture of what 90% of my life as a mom of three looks like.  I want others to see I’m just like you!!  I started as a coach two years ago just wanting to connect with other mom’s, living in a small town a trip to the park it was odd to see others there.  Fast forward to now and I'm sitting on the patio connecting with woman from all over the United States from the comfort of our home, give me WIFI and I can work!!

Coaching from home

Two years ago I was not at my goal weight!!  I was in the middle of changing how I was eating and learning more about clean eating.  It started with as a coach that wanted  to inspire my family and let’s face it coaching becomes the ultimate accountability!!

Coaching from home

Sunday’s I know for a lot of woman can be hard, it’s time their rushing around the house in order to be out of the home 40 plus hours a week knowing their income might slowly go up at some point in time.  OR to the stay at home mom just wanting a way to earn income without having to put the kids in daycare to be able to work and provide for the family.  It's been such a blessing to show other coaches this is a real business and can truly work with their lifestyle.

Coaching from home

My coaching business is just like any business I was just running a few reports and checking where I was last July to where I am this past July and noticed my income grew 500%!!  My business mind was blown away!!  I mean I still work this business the same amount of time 20 hours a week!!  In a traditional business in order to grow your business 500% more than likely it means bigger risk, more hours, more headaches and more time invested.  Recently Bill Gates was asked if he had to do it all over again what would he change?  He would be involved in a network marketing business. 

Coaching from home

Yes income is a small part of why I wanted to build this business the other part is what truly takes place off of social media and the impact you can have on someone’s life.

 Building confidence

Saying good bye to medicine for high blood pressure

Kicking lifelong habits that could age a person

Going after a position at work

Looking their best after having kids!

So what does it take?

Well here is the thing many start few stick with it!!  You need the ability to see where you want to be well let’s keep it simple you need to be a dreamer!!  But dreaming isn’t enough to be a successful coach you must be willing to work and apply the training that is offered.  Yes I might be a coach that is signed up with one of the top coaches in the network but that means nothing if I wasn’t willing to work towards those dreams.  Being teachable is key it’s totally normal to not have a clue where to start but willing to learn!  Willing to step out of your comfort zone and understand those small choices made every day will add up to something amazing over time.  Willing to treat this business like you invest 100,000 not 40 bucks.  And that pretty much sums it up!!  I will be mentoring 5 new coaches in the month of September and showing them how to duplicate what I do, scripts will be given, social media training, weekly team calls, and access to getting in the best shape of your life from the inside out.
If you ever wondered if an at home business was right for you my team of amazing coaches would love to share with you more about what a coach does "beyond the workouts".
Coaching from home
There isn't a cookie cutter coach!!  The thing that matters is not your past but what your going to do with your life experiences to better those around you in a positive way. 
I'm a small town girl, that started with a small network, zero experience in this type of business, not leading much more than the dog on a walk to a girl when you search clean eating my name comes up, to over 15,000 followers on my like page country girl meets clean eating, and leading a team of amazing woman.
I will be hosting a 3 day closed facebook group starting this coming week to learn more about what a coach does and sharing with you on how to expand your network, how to earn income, the free trips earned, how to get started, how to work full time and coach and from there decide if this would be a good fit for you.

Why entrepreneurs make great beachbody coaches

Why entrepreneurs make great beachbody coaches

Hey There welcome to my blog and to learn more about how this amazing business can be the right fit for you and your family.  First off a little background about myself, I'm a mom of three!!  Ages ranging from 4 to 6 months old living in central PA my entire life.  I married a classmate and just turned 31!!  I live life very free and hate schedules this beachbody business fell into my lap two years ago after having our second child and I had a hard time losing the baby weight.  Since age five I always new God had big plans for my life.  I struggled in school and having low confidence my best was never enough.  Two years ago my husband was working 15 plus hours a day starting up our traditional excavation business.  I missed working outside of the home and really connected with other coaches when I signed up and wanted to share this opportunity with others. 

Always having a business mind the things that stood out:
No capital invest
Not a boss but a mentor to others
Not a limit on income made
Work from any location and travel
Unlimited sick days
Work the hours you desire

Sounds dreamy right?  In the past two years I've been blessed to be a part of the top 3% of the company.  It took failing over and over and never giving up, it took stepping out of my comfort zone, it took some late nights, but the rewards are well worth it.

I'm looking to mentor my next set of leaders wanting to build more freedom with their time.  Those that always felt deep down that their life was meant for something bigger then themselves. 

I will be opening up a 5 day "behind the barn door" look at what coaching is all about.  Answering questions like
How to expand your network
Do I need to be at my goal weight
How to earn income
What training is provided
How much time does it take
I'm an introvert will I be successful

I would love to get to know more about you and your life goals to be added to this no pressure group fill out the form below.

What workouts to suggest as a beachbody coach

What workouts to suggest as a beachbody coach

Hey coaches this blog post is all about sharing workouts with others and what might be the right fit for them.  Hold up just a moment before sending your link and talking about cost lets get to know our potential customer more and learn about his or her goals.  There is nothing worse then people in the world just hungry to "sell" something. 

Here are a few questions to ask others to get the ball rolling.

-Tell me a little bit about your life. Do you have kids?   Married? Work in or out of the home?
-Give me a peek into your day-to-day.

-Tell me about your specific fitness+weight loss goals:

-What methods have you already tried? What’s working?
 What’s not?

-How long have you been trying to lose weight or change your body?

-Is nutrition a strength or weakness? Provide details.

-Do you struggle with skipping meals, portion control, cravings, grazing as the day goes on?

-Do you have any injuries? If so, please explain any limitations.

-Are there any kinds of fitness that you really enjoy?

-On a scale of 1-10, how motivated are you to make a change today?

-Why is your health a financial priority now?

-If you were in your ideal body today, how would you be living your life differently?
From this I like to view the conversation as a pin pong game.  Keep asking questions!!  Because down the road when objections come up you can go back and pull info from the conversation that will help them to see why now it the time to invest in their health.
What workouts to suggest as a beachbody coach
*correction when it says P90x it should read P90 
***Next I would log into your online back office click on the tab sale & marketing, product tool kits, promo video.  Then I would copy that link and create a doc on your computer and copy and past all links.  This will be a time saver as a coach and the more you talk with others its an easy way to pull of your links and share based on their needs.

Cize Test Group

Cize Test Group

Hey There!!  Welcome to my blog where you will find clean eating recipes, motivation, and ways to better your health.  A little bit about myself before we jump into talking about Cize.  I'm a country girl by heart, I live life with a free sprite and run the other way when to much structure is given.  I married my husband 8 years ago we currently have 3 children age 3 and under!!  I've always been driven in life by doing things most see with little opportunity.  In our 20's my husband and I owned a grease collection business and had over 600 locations in the state of Pa to pick up a waste product and turn it into fuel.  We sold the business to a company out of the DC area a little over 2 years ago and continue to be entrepreneurs. 

I came into beachbody 2 years ago just really wanting to lose the baby weight.  I felt defeated and was failing at losing it and my confidence was low.  I wanted to pay it forward and show other woman they too could do this.  So when I look at this picture of these lovely ladies in the first week of the test group working out and sweating for a bigger cause its a pretty cool feeling!  As busy woman I TRULY believe in craving out that daily time to invest mentally and physically into our health.  I swear sweating does a mind good at the same time. 

Let's talk meal plan when it comes to Cize, it uses the same system as the 21 day fix as far as the containers go. This just makes life simple!!  Oh and tasty while getting healthy and losing weight.  Here is an example of what I share within my accountability groups.
cize test group

I have a few favorite recipes when it comes to this system of meal planning.
Chicken Caprese
Flank Steak
Beef Stew

In our household my husband would not be thrilled to eat chicken salads every night for dinner so these are just a few ideas on how to keep the family happy while creating a meal plan and not having to cook two dinners.

cize test group

Before I show you a clip of what the Cize workouts look like I had to share where I spend a good chunk of the day.  Being outdoors with the kids whether its in the barn or the side yard.  So lets just say this workout is stretch for me!!  Give me weight training, running, or 30 minute cardio with at home fitness I'm good.  Cize is cardio but it involves dancing....Perhaps it will be like wine with time it only gets better?

So if you would like to feel more confident in your own skin, shred a few lbs, tone up, do so from at home fitness, give me four weeks of your time with checking in from an online closed facebook group lets chat.  Oh and we eat well also!!  No need to count calories its more so looking at nutrition and picking better options. 
Cize test group


Oh I almost forgot to share what the results from cize, clean eating, and shakeology look like.
