Robert Champagne started seeing me in April and was determined to lose weight. He was 312 lbs and wanted to be healthy for himself and his child. Today he weighed in 40 lbs lighter! He's full of energy, exercising, eating well and...cheating every now and then. Diets don't last! Lifestyle changes do. So enjoy a cheat day weekly and enjoy life in moderation. Congrats bro! You fired me up. @champagnelikethedrink

THROWBACK to 4 years ago prepping these guys for Muscle Beach, it was a good time and great experience with friends, however not a passion of mine. We looked pretty good thoooo ๐Ÿ˜›. Had to do a professional shoot with a long time friend of mine ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ.

My heart is just overflowing with gratitude and love. โ˜บ๏ธ So many emotions, happy, sad, excited! Ahh, I'm going to miss working at APT and with some of my families! ๐Ÿ˜ข

During my last visit today I was reminded why I want to pursue this new career and I almost burst out in tears as I was writing my last progress note. Then on top of that, as I'm saying my goodbyes and getting ready to leave the mom says, "I think you'll be a great doctor." My eyes were tearing up. Such simple words just meant so much. ๐Ÿ’•

Thank you to my co-workers for making going to work everyday for the past year so fun and welcoming! Thank you for being so thoughtful and thank you for always helping me with any questions I had. You guys are awesome! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Plus, look at that picture? It's so freaking cool! Keeping it forever and using it as motivation! ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ

#waybackwednesday to fancy date nights while exploring new cities with #bae ๐Ÿฅ‚. We do not go out often because it's expensive and we HAVE to budget because #loandebt , we are often on opposite schedules, and one of us has always been on show prep ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ. But, we do still find ways to enjoy quality time without food ๐Ÿฝ๏ธ ๐Ÿช๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ”! Walks, game nights, movie night; date night does not have to be expensive! I think it is so important to remember that just because you're in prep, does not mean you have to sacrifice quality time with those you love. Plus, it makes the times we are able to dress up and go out all the more special ๐Ÿ˜˜. Can't wait for another date night with you @jacob.mullner โค๏ธ #fitcouplegoals #bestfriend

Yes! Love reading Robin Sharma! Embrace both the good and bad as there is so much potential for growth there. But I think it's also important to keep mindful of "the extent to which you let your dissatisfaction make you feel down" and instead try to "maximize your triumphs." It's so important to have this healthy balance if you want to grow personally! โ€ข

Ginger has many health benefits which may include helping with acid reflux. Try ginger tea with lemon. Of course Gabriel and I like a little spice so we added cayenne pepper which also has many health benefits. Read about it!

Random thought- Just about every time I post a picture of something โ€œunhealthyโ€ or โ€œjunkโ€ food I get a flood of messages saying things along the line of Thatโ€™s not healthy! Did you actually eat that? Thatโ€™s processed! You eat McDonalds?

Ya I ate that, yes its processed, 2 Mcdoubles no onions, 2 Jr. Chickens and an Oreo McFlurry with Extra Oreo.

This post could get extremely lengthy but I will save that for a future post/posts.
Ready for thisโ€ฆ HEALTHY is more than just your food choices, its more than organic, its more than micro nutrients, its more than macronutrients, its more than calories, its more than vitamins and minerals and โ€œsuper foodsโ€.
So many people and โ€œcoachesโ€ look at nutrition from a micro level, they donโ€™t look at the bigger picture.
Many of the โ€œhealthiestโ€ eaters I know are the most unhealthy people. Physically they might be well off, however when your diet consumes your life, your thoughts and your feelings you are no longer healthy. Physically good, mentally horrendous. Handling the mental side of things is equally or more important.

A good diet is a diet that is flexible, balanced, sustainable LONG TERM and allows you to feel good both physically and mentally. It should allow you all the above and still reach your goals.

Trust me, for years I did the 5 meals a day in tupperwear, loyal to my diet, living in a deficit, low sugar, low carbs, low sodium, blah blah blah. It wasnโ€™t good, I wasnโ€™t happy, my life revolved around my nutrition.
As time went on I researched, trial and errored, researched, doubted, researched, resisted, researched, approved. Flexible dieting is incredible. Myself and majority of my clientele use flexible dieting or some โ€œhybridโ€ of the system.
I never thought I could get away from the negative relationship with food I had, now I can eat just about anything I want within reason and feel good, not just physically, most importantly mentally. Trust me on this one.

Tomorrow will be our last day of work at our current positions. ๐Ÿ˜ข

This guy and I are making things happen. ๐Ÿ‘ซ

James will be starting as a professor at TMCC in the fall and I'll be starting my journey towards medical school. ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿฝโ€๐Ÿซ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€โš•๏ธ It almost seems surreal that I'm actually going through with this. A few years ago I would have just said, "It'll take too long and I'm not smart enough," then conformed to whatever I was available at the time.๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ So happy for the experiences that have come into my life and the people who I've had the pleasure to meet. Heck, I'm even happy for all the doubters and the negative people I've met because they've helped me push harder. So thanks.โœŒ๐Ÿผ So happy to begin this journey together. I mean is this really real life? ๐Ÿ’•

This is Katie! She began her journey with Beachbody and Lost 115 pounds in 10 months!

Yes, this is possible with at home exercise and focused nutrition, and Shakeology of course!

She says: "My husband and I were ready to start a family, and I knew that being extremely overweight would put me at high risk for many complications during pregnancy. I needed to get a grasp on my weight and become healthier before trying to conceive. ... The first few weeks were the hardest, because I was sore and hurting all over. As I pushed through each and every workout I found myself getting stronger, and the accountability of my Beachbody Challenge groups really helped me to overcome my obstacles. My Coach and fellow challengers motivated me and cheered me on throughout the entire length of the challenge. They taught me that it was okay to slip up, but instead of allowing it to defeat me, I had to get up and keep moving on. This program has helped me to lose 115 lbs, and I could not be happier. I love what I see when I look in the mirror and no longer hate shopping for clothes! I am so proud to say that I am no longer at risk for diabetes, and my doctor states that I am overall very healthy and cleared to begin trying to conceive a child, which was my original motivating factor. I am excited to continue this lifestyle and maintain it through pregnancy and beyond. I would like to be a healthy role model for my future children so that they do not have to face the same struggles that I did." My next health and fitness group starts on the 21st! What are you waiting for? Send me a message so we can start writing your transformation story!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Papaya, or as James likes to call it, poopy fruit.... haha, you either love it or you hate it, I think most people hate it! ๐Ÿ˜‚

I absolutely love it! It's been my go to breakfast for my cleanse! โค๏ธ Any papaya lovers out there? ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป

Week โœŒ๐Ÿผ, day โ˜๐Ÿผ. I've noticed my belly is smaller and my tummy is happier. No more acid reflux and less bloat.

Tried to capture what I eat in a day. Didn't do so well... I forgot to add the sweet potato I had with my salad and my shake I had right after work ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Today I had fruit for breakfast, salad and sweet potato for lunch, power greens supplement, vegan vanilla Shakeology, sweet potato and red bell pepper bisque. ๐Ÿคค

I was supposed to also have asparagus and some almonds for dinner, but I opted out because I wasn't very hungry for dinner. ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿป If you're ready to reset your health send me a message and let's get you started! ๐Ÿค—
