We're All Leaders

45381848_10101658588467782_6155251703596711936_n.jpg

Changing our life starts with mindset and I already know most people quit before they even begin. Don't let that be you. Become the leader of your life that you WANT to follow. Everyday. 
.
Did you know we are ALL Leaders in life? Because we are ALL leading at least one life in this world. Ourselves. When I realized this then I couldn't blame my past or others anymore for my situation. I took responsibility for my actions(or lack there of) and decided that I would become a leader that I would WANT to follow. Trust me, I'm still growing and learning...and the more I learn, the more I realize I've got a long way to go! But trust me, it feels good finally deciding to be on this journey.
.
What helped me and what might help you is confronting a few areas and taking action without letting fear of failure stop you.
.
For example I would say to myself....
.
"I lead myself into a better relationship with myself and others by listening to at least one audiobook on personal development/growth per month.

"I lead myself into a better career opportunity by connecting with and learning from 2-3 fellow Coaches per week through videos or podcasts.

"I lead myself into a healthy lifestyle by committing to a program and completing each one before moving onto the next one. I also follow my meal plan(80% of the time πŸ˜‰)
.
.
I recommend you also write down at least one area you would like to improve on and also write down HOW you will get there. And don't just write it down once. I'm talking EVERYDAY. I repeat....Changing our life starts with mindset and I already know most people quit before they ever even begin. Don't let that be you. Become the leader of your life that you WANT to follow. Everyday. Because trust me babe. You're worth it. πŸ˜˜βœŒ

Ninja-in-Training

I cant believe I survived my first NINJA WARRIOR COURSE!!!!!! πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆHow often do you get out of your comfort zone!?!?! Hopefully frequently. Because, how else do we get better!!?!?? πŸ’β€β™€οΈWell tonight after my workout I went to a gym where they have a Ninja Warrior course!!!! Funny thing, they had a kids class starting and I was told I could still participate or watch if I wanted to...."ummm heck yes" was my answer 🀣 And surprisingly I was able to hang with these tweens. Literally. There were definitely some things I just couldn't do(yet) but now I know what I need to work on!!!! I was surprised though by how much I COULD do side by side with kids that were 20+ years younger than me!!!!!

Seriously guys.....Age is ONLY a number!!!! But I have to give MAJOR props to the fellow Coaches encouraging me and to the programs and supplements I've used for the past 4 years!! ......So what is it that scares you!? Signing up for Spartan, a marathon, Ninja Warrior, starting an online business...being able to (fill in the blank)?!?!?! ANNNND WHY are you waiting!?!?!? Because you will never FEEL ready. You just have to DO IT!!!!!

In ONE WEEK our next November Virtual Fit Club starts. Let's find a meal plan and program that aligns with YOUR goals!!!! This is NOT a one size fits all...because we are ALL different. Message your Coach TODAY or comment πŸ™Œ and Lets rock this thing called life. TOGETHER!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ’ŸπŸ™Œ #goaldigger #ninjawarrior #motivatedmonday

Cheers to...

β˜•Cheers to fuzzy boots, big sweaters, amazing coffee and prepping for a successful November for my clients & Coaches!!!!πŸ™Œ Do you guys take a few hours on Sunday to plan out your week/month also?!?!!?

It feels SOOOO good to mark things off my list. This former/recovering procrastinator is learning the importance to becoming MORE of a do-er rather than just a dreamer!!!!!! Now go prep something, seriously marking at least ONE THING off your list feels SOOOOOOOO GOOOOOD!!!!!!#dreameranddoer #mindsetiseverything #letsdothis

Disappointment

44719486_10101648302231482_7954800501919318016_n.jpg

Hey guys! Lets talk about disappointment!!! Super fun word...I know πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ€·β€β™€οΈ But as you know I'm diving into personal development and today's topic really stood out to me. Probably because I am CONTINUALLY harsh on myself and have disappointed myself over the years. Seriously....I hear my mind go to places like.....
"Why aren't I a good leader?"
"Why am I not where I want to be in my business?"
"Why did this person block me on social media? Is it something I said?"
....and the list goes on....
Writing all this out makes me realize how ridic all that sounds...but seriously y'all. We ALL struggle with dissatisfaction and disappointment. But one thing is FOR SURE IN LIFE.πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰πŸ‘‰
Disappointment is inevitable!!! It's because life is NOT perfect. I'm sure you know this by now πŸ˜‰ But there are really only 2 ways to look at disappointment...

πŸ‘‰A failure that can lead to NEGATIVE behaviors that include blame, anger and resentment......

OR

a Learning opportunity where POSITIVE action will be taken including taking responsibility, acting with love and patience towards yourself and others and coming up with a new strategy to eventually have a better result. 

So the next time you are disappointed take a few deep breaths and ask yourself..."how would my BEST self react to this?" And map out the BEST scenario. And if it CANNOT be "fixed" then move on. There are SO MANY other things in life we have control over. Do NOT be tied up with things we CANNOT change. Especially matters of what OTHER people do. Focus instead on the GOOD you can do NOW. βœŒπŸ˜˜βœŒ #learningandgrowing#personaldevelopment #brendanburchard#melrobbins #lewishowes #brenebrown#deangraziosi #jensincero #darrenhardy

Settlers

44768094_10101647554509922_3090803000441044992_n.jpg

I truly feel we ALL can have a happy & fulfilling life. But I'm not saying everyone deserves it. Here's why I think this....

We get to a certain point in our life...usually late teens and early 20's and our parents stop "parenting " us and then we are left on our own to find out what our calling is and learn everyday how to do it well. But I feel as if most people think they are done "learning" & growing after they finish school. They stop reading. They stop investing in education they stop at the level they think they deserve...or maybe they THINK they deserve more but don't take any effort towards it.

So they stop....and they settle.
πŸ’πŸΎβ€β™€οΈThey settle in a job where they aren't fulfilled...but hey it pays the bills, right? πŸ’πŸ½β€β™‚️They settle in a relationship that is toxic but hey....they aren't alone, right?
πŸ’β€β™€οΈThey settle in their unhealthy habits.... but hey they haven't had any "Real health issues'....yet.

Ya get what I'm saying? So ask yourself ......"AM I SETTLING?
And if I DO DESERVE a better life, am I 100% showing up to have it!?!!?"

Listen, I'm not saying quit your job, leave your relationship, fire your personal trainer...but in those areas of your life are you showing up and GIVING EVERYTHING YOU GOT!?!?! If not then you know what you need to do. And after you do give it your all and you still aren't where you need to be then learn, and grow and do what you MUST DO. 

A fulfilled life is ALWAYS worth it but you must know it will be full of road blocks. Full of doubters. Full of people who judge you. (Get over that one because those people are everywhere unfortunately). Everyday you will be fighting fears and learning from your mistakes. But you MUST be willing to forgive yourself. Perfection is not the goal. Take time to learn from the those doing it better and never take advice from people who aren't successful. If you have something pulling on your heart then listen to it. Go do the thing you must do. RIGHT. NOW. Otherwise this will be a post lost to the hopeless...but I want Hope in YOUR heart and a FIRE for BETTER life....because if you are STILL reading this then I know you deserve better. And I know you know it too. πŸ’ŸπŸ§‘πŸ’Ÿ

Never Forget...

44629775_10101646675731002_2128997116620570624_n.jpg

Never forget you already have everything it takes to be happy, loved, successful, empowered and courageous. You won't find it around you though....it is and always has been WITHIN you. πŸ§‘🧑🧑

Do I?

44699256_10101647116587522_8789263096494424064_n.jpg

"Do I want to do this?...enough?"
"Am I worth it? I don't know if I have enough confidence in myself to do this..."
"What if I fail?" I don't want to let you down."

I hear those questions lingering in the minds of people who KNOW that being healthy is important....but those questions stop them. I know because it stopped me. I remember thinking 6 years ago..."I can't get a great workout at home!"..."ohhhh, no thanks this won't work for me...its one of those "online" things...."What if I don’t do well? Am I going to let people down?" "What if they judge me?" 

This mindset will continue your journey down a path of more doubts, more negativity and regret. I realized I did not want that for my life ANYMORE and everything changed when my WANT for change was greater than my WANT to stay the same. 

Fast forward a few years and now MOST of my workouts come from a program that I follow from START TO FINISH. I'm also doing this ONLINE thing making a full time income. I'm so glad I stopped listening to my doubts and I trusted that I COULD be successful at this. I'm healthier, happier and I found a tribe of people that keep me motivated to KEEP GOING. Huge Thanks to my fellow Coaches and fellow Virtual Fit-Clubbers!!! Ya'll changed my life πŸ˜πŸ™πŸ˜­πŸ’ŸπŸ˜˜

If you need support and a plan for success then reach out to me or a fellow Coach!!! It's no fun to "go it alone." . Trust me...I've tried that for too long. People need people to relate to the hard and to celebrate in the smallest and biggest successes. We ALL matter. Wanting more for your life is not selfish. It's a need that must be filled. Time will pass regardless, wouldn't you like to make it your BEST life possible? πŸ’ͺ😁

Reason to Be Happy

44554475_10155705445746835_6611855947486724096_n.jpg

Just got back from a (mini) Coach Conference and it was one that left me in tears. We all had to think of a negative memory and think on those feelings of sadness, regret, anger...and well ...YEAAAHHH...that part sucked....

But then we took 3 minutes to think about 3 memories that made us sooooo grateful and in just a few minutes my mindset changed and I left so uplifted and grateful for my life. Our mindsets truly can change in the course of a few minutes so the next time you feel heart ache feel it and let yourself grieve...but if your heart aches for something from the past then it's time to let it go. Be grateful for what is NOW and also be grateful for that circumstance to shape and mold into who you are today. We all have stories of our childhood and past that we wish didn't happen but what if it happened FOR us so we could be the heroes today and ALSO help those like us? We might ask WHY ME? But what if instead we asked "HOW can I Overcome and HOW can I help others because of this? 

For example...I tend to look at the lack of connection I had growing up with people closest to me and how it's shaped me to be create my own fun and I also make sure everyone is felt loved and connected(whether they like it or not πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹) . And for that I'm SO SO thankful. I also look at marriage differently and because of my upbringing I make sure Eddie is loved by my words AND my actions. 

Everyone has a reason to be unhappy, but what are your reasons to be HAPPY? Why are you grateful for your life? And how can you show that gratefulness to everyone around you? Isn't it time to let go and forgive those that hurt you? Including forgiving and loving yourself? It might help to start a daily grateful list. I'm starting another gratitude journal this fall to help me stay accountable! If you think it will help ya too then I encourage you to do it too!!!! Hmmmmm, maybe a grateful group for my next free group?!?πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” Whatcha think?

New Program

44500785_10155703410646835_2227170650143850496_n.jpg

On Friday we Flex. And yes YOU are my accountability to what’s about to come. So I want to say THANKS for helping me stay on track!!!! πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ here's to our healthiest Fall YET!!!!!

I'm diving into a new Program Monday and I always love the excitement that comes with a new challenge....yea, this is my lifestyle but it's still gets me excited to START strong and FINISH strong. I want to continue to Iead by example because if this college drop out, recovering emotional eater & scale abuser CAN over come the hard....then SO CAN YOU!!!!! We are more than a size...we are people who NEED love and acceptance and we won't accept it from ANYONE until we accept it from OUR SELF FIRST. So every day, wherever you are at.... Love who you are NOW and who you are becoming because babe. You have ALWAYS been worth loving and worth fighting for!!!😍😘😍🀩#fightforyourhealth #maketheshift#thesweatlifewithsarah #virtualfitclub#virtualbootcamp #sweatwithsarah

What's Your Sacrifice?

44246279_10155699667711835_687569198313897984_n.jpg

Do you know what you need to give up for a happier, healthier & more fulfilled life!? Most people know what they would have if they achieved their goals but they rarely think about the sacrifice it takes. So let's take a step back and realize the REAL PRICE...because I am all about keeping it real with ya. βœŒπŸ˜˜

So you want better health!? What's your sacrifice?!??
βœ”TIME... to schedule your workouts and NOT give in to the snooze...because you stayed up late netflixing. Again. 
βœ”INVESTMENT...Are you willing to invest in your health or are you going to keep going it alone? 
βœ”RELATIONSHIPS....You have toxic people in your life. They are sabotaging your efforts and maybe even making you emotionally unwell so you turn to food for comfort. Time to distance yourself. 
βœ”FALSE BELIEFS.....You have blamed circumstances, people, genetics....even the weather for your lack of motivation. Aren't you willing to give up what you can't control for what you CAN CONTROL....YET?

Seems a bit harsh but honestly your health is THAT important, not only for you but also for your loved ones. It's time to write out your goals and share them with some POSITIVE people that will have your back. I'm not saying its gotta be me....heck you might not even like me πŸ€£ & that's πŸ‘Œ But I'm telling you anyway πŸ‘‰ DON'T WAIT TILL ITS TOO LATE. We either live a life of FEAR, a life of REGRET or a life of HAPPINESS. Either way....you get to decide YOUR FUTURE. Make it a happy one friend.πŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’Ÿ

44115895_10101641057440102_389097004493438976_n.jpg

Friends

43951098_10101637407305002_4382186661463719936_n.jpg

There are 3 types of friends in your life...
πŸ’β€β™€οΈAcquaintance friends
πŸ’β€β™€οΈMaintenance friends 
πŸ’β€β™€οΈGrowth friends

Being a former people pleaser I used to try to please EVERYONE...encourage them...inspire them to be happier and live more fulfilled lives. I hit a wall and hit it HARD. They brought me down to their level. I complained more. I doubted myself more. I was frustrated and blamed others for my OWN failures. It sucked and I KNEW Something needed to change. 

I decided to reach out to those who inspired me. Who seemed to have it all but were still humble, happy and kind. I stopped my jealous and envious mindset and decided I wanted to GROW into the best version of me. And over the years I have changed. I have attracted people who also want growth and we have better lives because of it. πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‹πŸ˜Š No, it wont happen over night but if you are searching for a community of DREAMERS and DO-ERS I am going live sharing my story for those who want to hear it. I have a PRIVATE group to get an inside look of what this community is about. Check out the link in the comments below or message me to get access to it.πŸ˜‰

Remember, if you decide to spend the MOST Time with "GROWTH" friends then you are more likely to be happier, more successful and have a more fulfilled life. So choose wisely and avoid the drama...the negative...the self limiting beliefs of some of your current "friends". Life is too short. Live it happy, generate joy and make a REAL DIFFERENCE in this world!!!!✊✊✊#onlincoaches #happylife #bestlife #livingthedream#everyday


A Cleaner Lens

43524468_10101636634783142_4610702419376996352_n.jpg

Too many times we try to control our situations which if we DON'T have control of and the outcome DOESN'T happen the way we want then we feel failure or we blame ourselves or others. Yea....a lose lose all around. πŸ€šπŸ€šWhose got time for that!?!!!!?

In a world of uncontrollable situations I want you to know that you DO have control over YOUR mindset. Don't give away YOUR POWER to the bad times .Instead focus on what you CAN control and make your MINDSET MENTALLY STRONG So whatever you are faced with you KNOW it won't tear you down any longer. 

How do ya do that!?!?! Well energy is spent regardless so you MUST take away a bad habit to form a GOOD one. So what bad habit could you trade in for a good habit??? 
πŸ‘ŒGossip....trade in for a Gratitude journal.
πŸ‘ŒDrama or a negative TV show trade in for a Personal development book (audio book counts too).
πŸ‘ŒConfronting and not running from the HARD situation you have avoided so you can quicker move past it.
πŸ‘ŒInstead of scrolling social media and comparing yourself to others "perfect" life write out your OWN affirmations daily before you go to bed. 
...maybe do ALL of those things? Your life is YOURS. Don't let other people or situations control it any longer. Happiness is all around. Search it out and create a mind that sees the world through a cleaner lens. πŸ˜˜πŸ™ #wegotthis

Mine

43536241_10101636092824232_8419959998540414976_n.jpg

Sorry doggies.....MY cookies. πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ˜ I was feeling a tad guilty about these but in all honesty I'm having 3 and not 6...PLUS I had a huuuuge salad today and I'm going to drink my superfoods smoothie for dessert tonight. This is awesome for me because yes I struggle with food time to time but I don't punish myself with starvation or working out for hours anymore. I recognize that I sometimes give in but I no longer think I'm a failure because of it. I'm not perfect and that's OK.πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ Perfect is NOT the goal. Happy and Healthy is the goal. And it will always will be.

Bright Like A Diamond

43046279_10101630024130942_160356997747703808_n.jpg

I want women to know confidence shines from the inside out. Embrace your beauty by showing your kindness, sharing your laughter and your appreciation of life. EVERYDAY. Confidence shines brighter when you love yourself for who you are and you love others for who they are. Shine bright like a Diamond babe! πŸ’žπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’Ÿ

Feel This Great

42701949_10101625654472772_4958161201994399744_n.jpg

I hope someday 100% of my friends know what it's like to FEEL this great. But I also know it won't happen to MOST of my friends and sadly it's, because most people won't take action on their dreams because of
πŸ‘‰fear of failure...
πŸ‘‰because of fear of what others think...
πŸ‘‰And because they think what I do is a scam....

Listen, if I would have let FEAR take over I would not have been able to travel all over the country. I would have not been able to retire my husband from his job after 2 years. I would not have been able to help women quit their jobs from the police dept..pay off debts and live more fulfilling lives to be home with their kids. Yea...I helped them do that. And I'm freakin proud that I did NOT let fear hold me back! And I'm even MORE proud of these bossbabes that understand the importance of living their BEST LIFE. We are a TEAM of people who help others through nutrition, fitness, mindset and accountability and I have never felt more confident in OUR ability to help others because we offer it ALL. 

So what's MORE important than pursuing YOUR dreams!?!??! If you are finally ready to give this a shot then let's talk. I have a NEW Coach training and Virtual Fit club starting MONDAY. 
Just a few things...
πŸ™ŒNo experience needed. I teach you everything.
πŸ™Œ Must be located in the US, UK or Canada.
πŸ™Œ Must have an interest in helping others (including yourself).
