Fall Into Fitness… Join Us In September!

September Support Group Starts Now


Today is ‪#‎ThrowbackThursday‬!

This is me… In July, working out with 30K+ of my closest friends… 😉

Guess what? I’m still here… Making positive changes one day at a time and addressing my struggles as they come up, while helping others do the same. Our support community focuses on developing lifelong habits and staying healthy so we can lead the lives we choose and pursue our passions. Being healthy is possible and it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy life. Making good choices doesn’t have to be complex and time consuming and neither does fitness.

Life is all about balance. If you’re ready to take a leap of faith, I’m ready to lead the way and show you what you need to do to be your best. Think you’re ready for 30 minute workouts and more food than you’ve ever eaten on a “diet” before? Seriously, though, I promise you’re not going to starve! I’ve been there before (and to TOPS, Slim-Fast, Nutri-System, Cabbage Soup, the weight loss “doctor,” etc… ‪#‎thislistismypast‬)

Are you ready for ‪#‎realtalk‬:
* Fitness and Nutrition Tips?
* Recipes & Meal Plans? ‪#‎findmeonpinterest‬ HERE
* Daily Dose of Positivity?
* Peer Encouragement?
* Accountability?
* Perspective and Experience of TWO Coaches who want to see YOU succeed?

If you’re determined and ready to make a change, I’ve got a group of rockstars you need to meet!

And if you’ve done a group before and are ready to come back, ‪#‎justdoit‬!! Things are a little different now, and you’re not going to be disappointed! We’re building a community here! <3

Like, message me, comment below, or if you’re shy, fill out the questionnaire HERE. 😀

Ask yourself why not…

Pay the Farmer to Keep You Healthy

I WAS one of those people who ate with very little thought to whether I was feeding my body nutritious food. I was reactive when it came to health issues. I was suffering from migraines and joint pain and arthritis from past injury.

All that changed when I recommitted to meeting my running goals, added in cross-training with Beachbody programs, and began drinking Shakeology.

Yes, I’m a busy mom, but I’m not going to use that as an excuse not to take care of myself. If anything, that’s even more reason to be proactive in keeping our family healthy. I couldn’t possibly ingest all the superfoods I get in Shakeology… So, it supplements the clean healthy fruits and vegetables my body needs and gives my body a protein boost and energy and cuts cravings at the same time. That’s a win/win for me. So you could ask yourself why *should* I be interested in or concerned about getting healthy, but the real question is why not?

Improving your health may not be easy, but it really is simple. If you want to hear more and are ready to take back control, message me, comment below, or fill out the questionnaire here. I’d love to connect with you.

Being a Beachbody Coach…

Momma and Liam playing on the swings during our work day.

I’ve been a stay at home mom to this miraculous little boy for 21 months tomorrow. Sometimes it seems like barely a day has gone by. I wouldn’t trade our time together for anything, but I remember that first year being so absorbed in him and our family that I lost who I was as a person and really didn’t take the best care of myself.

8 months ago, I committed to running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon, and 7 months ago, I became a Beachbody coach. If I had known then what I knew now, I would have sought out the opportunity sooner. I suddenly found myself surrounded with a family of people who supported and uplifted and cheered each other on. I was running toward health and fitness and business goals.

Today was a huge milestone when our family earned our biggest Beachbody paycheck to date. I’m still amazed every day that I get paid to share my experiences and help other people on their fitness journey.

Are looking for an opportunity

* to help others?
* to work from home and enjoy every second with your babies?
* to provide extra income for your family?
* to improve your own health and fitness?
* to be part of a positive and encouraging support network?

If ANY of those sound like you, let’s talk about whether coaching on Team Steel Nation is right for you!

Root Beer Float Shakeology

One of my fitness partners inspired me to try something new with my Vanilla Shakeology this morning after I finished my run. While this recipe does not qualify as clean eating because of the tablespoon of sugar free pudding mix, it is tasty and gives you a little variety. It’s fun to do something different every once in a while. 🙂 If I come up with an alternative to the pudding, I will keep you all posted. Hope you enjoy this as a refreshing summer treat!

Looking to replace that sweet summer treat???

One of my favorite things about summer has always been caramel apples…  Now that I think about it, it’s my favorite thing about fall, too!

During the lazy days at the fair, fun at Kennywood Park, or visits to Rich’s Farms for Fright Night…  I can’t resist those caramel apples!!  Luckily I found a way to get the same flavor all while drinking my healthiest meal of the day.  😉

Shakeology provides you with protein and amino acids, phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, fiber, prebiotics and probiotics.  While I could drink plain chocolate Shakeo every day, it’s always fun to mix it up.

In the meantime, I’d love to hear about your favorite thing at Kennywood Park!  We will be participating in the Roller Coaster Race 10K at the park on June 6th.  It’s just a few weeks away, and I want to know what your favorite rides and food are.  😀

I hope you enjoy this caramel apple sweet treat replacement as much as I do!

Lemon Cream Pie Shakeology… My new obsession!

You may have heard me say that I don’t care for Vanilla Shakeology.  That is still 100% true when it is straight from the package…  But that little gem has helped me make some of the YUMMIEST concoctions.  **This recipe is NOT fix-approved.**  It may just make your day if you need a little treat though…  😉

I’ve played with it a little…  So my notes are these…  If you need another variation, I also have made it with 6 oz cold filtered water and 4 oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk.  I’ve also made it without the fat free/sugar free pudding mix powder (not nearly creamy enough for me).

I did use FF/SF mix…  I don’t encourage regular use of it because it does contain aspartame, which has been linked to all sorts of negative side effects.  Use with caution and sparingly…

Ready…  3…  2… 1…




No Bake Chocolate Shakeology Cookies

I love when I can eat a cookie and feel like I’m splurging but not actually cheat on my meal plan.  Best feeling ever!

These cookies were inspired by a Shakeology recipe.  I tried those ones and found them a little too crumbly for my taste…  Plus, they just needed a little extra something.

A little side benefit…  These cookies are a super easy way for us to sneak veggies and superfoods into our little one in a way that he devours and enjoys!

If you’re ready to have a cookie as one of your healthiest meals of the day, this is for you! <3
