Not Selfish

48418919_10155819943401835_8249477684111867904_n.jpg

Caring less of what others think leaves you with MORE room to love who you are. And no, that's NOT selfish. Do Not make yourself small. Live for today, plan for tomorrow and Love who you are now and who you are becoming. EVERY.SINGLE.DAY. πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜

No Shortcuts

48375708_10155817420761835_9177761215043076096_n.jpg

There's no shortcuts in life. It's time to face the truth and going into 2019 understand that success is the product of struggle. If you want your life to be great you MUST put in the action behind it. There is no room for making assumptions or falling into the trap of comparison. Ya wanna know what there IS room for!?!!? πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈ Failure. Yes you MUST fail and try and fail and try. Over time you will realize that failure is what made you resilient. Other people will run from the struggle, give up and let that fear of failure win. That's not you though. You were made for greatness. So show up and ACT like you want it enough πŸ˜‰βœŠπŸΌ #mondaymotivation#strongereveryday #struggleforstrength

Nutella Puppy Chow

(Nutella) Puppy chow recipe! No this is NOT a clean recipe btw πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ this is ALL THE GOODNESS and I make this every year and my life is complete because of it πŸ€£πŸ˜ and the best Part!?! 
NO BAKING REQUIRED!!!!!
.
Ingredients for 17 cups Puppy chow.....
❄ 1 family size box rice chex
❄ 1 24 oz. Bag choc chips
❄ 1 stick of butter
❄ 1 1/2 bags powdered sugar
❄ 1 cup peanut butter
❄ 1/2 cup Nutella 
❄ splash of vanilla extract
❄(optional peanut m&m's for being so extra) 
.
Double boil butter (use medium to lheat up large pot of water, place medium pot inside of it to melt the butter). Then add choc chips, PB and nutella stirring occasionally. When it's smooth add vanilla. Next add to a large bowl of rice chex (I recommend adding chocolate and adding chex folding on together. Definitely a 2 person job πŸ˜‰ and wash your hands, cause it's about to get cray)... After fully coated use a large trash bag ( non-scented....yep I made that mistake b4) and add your powdered sugar to it. Then pour in the chocolatey chex GOODNSSS.

Today I was checking into my (F R E E) Holiday Hustle group and I was reminded how freaking awesome these ppl are. Here's some check ins that made my day today.😍😭😘 You guys know who you are. Thanks for helping ME stay on track too!!!! ....
.

"My tracking has been on point this week!! My sugar intake has changed dramatically. It was hard in the beginning, it was on my mind a lot. This is something I can keep going with."
.
"Got my daily #sweatwithsarah going and started my water for the day!! Sarah has been my β€œgoals” through this challenge, my β€œjourney partner” and my help when I’ve needed positivity!!

Roll With It

48281842_10155809475441835_3721471376800874496_n.jpg

Just roll with it...& take responsibility.
.
Listen ya'll I like to be super real with you and while I LOVE my job as an Online Coach/ Fit-preneaur/Fitness instructor.... One thing I know FERRR SHUURREE is that there will be times of happy & heartache and it's inevitable to hit roadblocks and when that happens I must ask myself 2 questions....
#1 What can I learn from this?
#2 where is the opportunity to grow?
.
This basically happens all through out life(not just work) & when I ask the RIGHT questions I DO find the RIGHT answers. Sometimes not as timely as I want but I'm getting there πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ 
.
...But I used to ask myself the wrong questions...like.....
πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈ"Why does this happen to me(victim question)....
πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈWhy is this person NOT doing what they said they would do? (blaming).
πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈwhy is it easier for this person(comparison)....
.
.
If you are also struggling with something then write down your problem, own it and ask yourself the RIGHT QUESTIONS. Trust me, answers ARE OUT THERE and when you find it, you MUST take action on it. Otherwise you will repeat the same cycle 
OVER
AND
OVER
AND
OVER
AGAIN.
It's time for change. Roll with the change take responsibility and know that It might not be the timing you want but you do get there. You got this babe. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ


Hang in There

47577881_10155808142366835_3869446366086299648_n.jpg

Not every day will be great and that's ok....& As much as it sucks to feel unhappy or sad or depressed we HAVE TO RECOGNIZE that's its the HARD times in life that also make the BEST times... the best. We wouldn't know strength if we didn't know struggle. We wouldnt know love if we didn't know hate. We wouldn't know hope without knowing despair. 
.
Wherever you are just know that the hard times do pass but without them there we wouldn't appreciate the good times and experiences we have had and will have in the future. Your struggles do become your strengths. Hang in there. 
Tomorrow will be better βœŠπŸΌ

What Do I Eat?

48052375_10155804750066835_2557938884906319872_n.jpg

When people ask me what I eat my reply in my head is is usually "FOOD. LIKE ACTUAL, FOOD." πŸ˜‚πŸ€£No pills. No cleanses.No weight loss coffee(listen coffee already makes me πŸ’© so no thanksπŸ‘ŒπŸΌ.....and No 5 shakes a day. No "diet" foods. No sugar-free anything. No "foods" that come out of a box that will expire 30 years from now.....etc. πŸ˜‰ 

So what do I ACTUALLY EAT!?!? In my HOLIDAY HUSTLE GROUP we are all logging our food each day(and trying to cut back on added sugar this week). So after I checked in for the night, I thought I would also share here too! πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌBreakfast.... 2 cups of coffee with organic half and half
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌSnack....natural peanut butter & a banana
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌDinner....sweet as honey chicken with rice and sugar snap peas(forgot to take a pic bc I scarfed it) but it was frickin amazing! #ilovehellofresh
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌraspberry Tea with honey
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌDessert... vegan strawberry superfoods smoothie with frozen berries and water(I'm planning on drinking it in about an hour bc that's when I want sweets) 
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌmidnight snack.. . smart pop popcorn(I'm writing it down bc I know I will want some later and don't want to come back to edit this post πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‰

πŸ’¦πŸ’¦Water I'm at 90 so far!!!! 10 to go!!!

Take a Compliment

48062921_10155804587211835_3110761597501440000_n.jpg

Ya know how ya know you have grown from years of personal development!?!!?!....
You learn how to take a compliment.

I just re-wrote a message from a friend who said.....
"I want to be like you when I grow up."
My response was...
"Thanks, but I'm not that cool." ....
Then I rewrote it saying ..."Thanks, we ALL cool!" 

For YEARS(including the message I got today) if I would hear someone say something nice and I would totally discredit what they would say...usually with sarcasm. Ummmm, can you say JERK!?!? πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ 
I would rarely just say "THANK YOU." I had to explain myself or put myself down to prove thier compliment wrong and it's because I didn't believe it. I thought...."oh, they are just being nice"....or "they must want something in return." Seriously. That's what I thought!!!! I now realize that most people ARE KIND. I still have to catch my JERK-SELF from ruining my life but it just takes that extra few seconds to stop and see the positive rather than look for the negative. 
.
Do you relate to this!!?!? I think there's a little "jerk" in all of us...so, the next time someone gives you a compliment I want you to only say 2 WORDS. 
THANK.
YOU.
.
When you don't talk yourself out of love that comes into your life then you start to believe there is more love to recieve and more love to give to others. πŸ˜˜

Notebook Love Language

Empower or Restrict?

47687432_10155796084206835_4738041516734283776_n.jpg

"What you build today will either EMPOWER or RESTRICT you tomorrow."
- The ONE Thing

This quote stood out to me today because 2 words have been with me these last few years "FREEDOM" & "EMPOWERMENT." First, I wanted it for myself, & now I want it for others. 

A few years ago those words meant nothing to me. Personal development meant nothing. The word "Successful" made me bitter.....and it's because I didn't even allow myself to dream BIG. I was also soooo envious of those that were successful. And for that, I put a cap on my own success. I was afraid of the word SUCCESS. To me I thought if I wanted MORE I would have to DO MORE. For someone who didn't get even halfway through college and a C student all through HS (yes I was the class clown, constant talker & guard Basketball player, #hoosier I just want to have fun ya'll πŸ˜œβœŒπŸΌ).. I thought I was destined to ALWAYS be behind when it came to SUCCESS. 

πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈAnd BIG Success. Oh yeeeaaahhhh right!!!!!...that meant a BIG Possibility for BIG FAILURE. No thanks βœ‹βœ‹βœ‹

Then in 2014 I finally realized.....
"THIS. SUCKS." I had hit a wall and that wall was my OWN tiny box I had built around myslef. I didn't ACTUALLY try because I was too scared of the thought...."WHAT IF I FAIL?!"
But I started to hear...."WHAT IF I SUCCEED!?!?" So yea. What if?!!??! So I imagined what that would look like and FINALLY told myself it was OH- KAYYYY to dreamπŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” to me that meant.....
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌSleeping in and sweats all day
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌNot working for anyone else. Ever.again.
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌRetiring Eddie from his job so we could hang all day πŸ˜ & we both pursue what we enjoy...
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌTraveling every month
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌBuying a house

I think you know how this story goes and I still can't believe it all has happened....all while I was also teaching 15 fitness classes per week (I've since cut back and my knees thank me πŸ™)

My dreams are actually a little bigger now. 
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌHelp others DREAM BIGGER & HELP THEM ALSO ACHIEVE IT. 
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌBuy a beach house so I don't have to rent one for my Coach retreats anymore πŸ˜‰

I share all this with you to say....IT'S OK TO DREAM BIGGER. It's ok to WANT MORE & I'm here if you need the help.

Home!

47576677_10101683445908272_9192798544086433792_n.jpg

We made it home!!!! We left our itunes on and it played the same song from my Zumba Mega mix over 1,000x .....sorry #maithekitty πŸ€£πŸ˜œπŸ€£ she was a little upset but I think shes over it now. 

I still needed to get my Virtual Workout in & 37 min later.... done!!! I had to get week 3πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ caught up!!!!

The Best Fries

47379534_10101680237298352_1489717103198994432_n.jpg

Well...I usually have a HEALTHY eating plan on road trips.....but I heard someone talking about 5 guys burgers and fries....and had to find the next burger and fries place....second best optionπŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈ Steak & Shake. Man, oh man they have the BEST FRIES. πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜ I know I say abs are made in the kitchen, but hey. I'm human. I'm happy. And occasional treats are ohhh-kayyyyy πŸ˜˜πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Plans

46995979_10101678297161402_7198303211717918720_n.jpg

Planning to succeed is one way to live life...and not planning at all is another way to live.

For me, I had NO PLAN. I was HOPING good things would happen TO me. I would see others with success and think..."they are just lucky"..."the timing was perfect for them"..."if only I did this sooner in life"...."I'm not one of those go-getters"....."I've already failed too many times"...."I don't have a pro photographer taking pics of me all day long for a perfect IG" πŸ€£

Too many times I didn't even TRY to succeed because I thought I ALREADY knew the outcome. I have believed lie after lie and have been taught to live life a certain way....
πŸ€”Be quiet...
πŸ€”Don't draw attention to yourself...
πŸ€”People are judging you...
πŸ€”You'll never be successful at an online Business because look at all those who failed...
πŸ€”That's not normal, so you shouldn't do it. 

Doubts after doubts flooded my thoughts but something inside me said NOT THIS TIME. I'M NOT A QUITTER...ANYMORE. AND I'M NOT DEFINED BY MY FAILURES. I PLAN TO SUCCEED. I PLAN TO SHOW UP. I AM ENOUGH. WATCH ME.✊🏼

These New truths are what I became to believe, but guys, it didn't happen over night. I invested in personal development. I reached out to mentors who I once envied & I thought were conceited and "lucky" and in all honesty drove me NUTS over the fact that I needed THEIR help....lol ...TALK ABOUT EGO SARAHπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ but I got over it. Thank Tha Lawd. And the good news is I'm happy. I found my calling. I've helped people. I have FREEDOM. I don't wake up with dread about money anymore. I get to work from home with Eddie now.#photobomber . I re-wrote my story and let me tell you....IT'S WORTH IT.😍😭😍

If Fear is what's holding you back because you also believe in False Truths then know its Possible to change your mindset & story. Don't let Fear of Failure hold you back...instead be Fearful of Regret...you live this life once. 
We can't change our past so forgive yourself. Forgive others. And move towards a life you only dream about. 
It's time to GO FOR IT. βœŠπŸΌβœŠπŸΌβœŠπŸΌ

Not About Perfect

47213035_10101677714404252_5545776396682395648_n.jpg

33 days until the New Year πŸ™ˆ .... annnnd yep I haven't eaten the greatest these last few weeks(including 2 bagels with a LOT of butter I had yesterday) but because I wasn't great on nutrition I DIDN'T say ...."Screw it, I'm waiting until the new year to get healthy!" ....those that think that way are pretty much driving a car with a flat tire....and instead of fixing it they are going to wait until ALL of thier tires are flat and THEN get thier car fixed. πŸ€”πŸ™ˆπŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈ It's sad we treat our cars, or new phones, or anything else BETTER than we treat our own bodies.

THAT. STOPS.NOW. 

I've got a few spots left for my December Virtual Fit Club and if you see the this as an opportunity to PROVE to yourself that you CAN make your health a priority then lets GOOOOOOO!!!!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ And when January hits you will ALREADY develop the habits so you DON'T quit on yourself EVER AGAIN. Message me or Drop the name of your favorite πŸš—πŸš—πŸš— below (Mines a Jeep) πŸ˜‰πŸ™Œ and I will send you some info to see if my VFC can help you like it has me and so many others!!!!!! 
P.S......

>> THIS IS ABOUT HAVING A PLAN FOR SUCCESS IN ALL AREAS *workouts *nutrition *personal development *self care πŸ˜˜πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Choices. Actions. Habits.

47057898_10101676496564812_7111190451637452800_n.jpg

Choices become actions.
Actions become habits. 
Habits become our way of life. 
It only takes one habit to have a domino effect in a very good way or a very bad way. 

Whats one habit you would like to create? Share πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ 
For me, it's drinking water before my coffee .....sounds easy enough but it's tough to remember!!!! But today was a win so I'm celebrating!!!!!


Your New Life

46817177_10101676082898802_1290017242947256320_n.jpg

A new life will cost you...but is it worth it??? I think YES πŸ™Œ..But first, we need to chat. Because listen babe, you gotta re-write your story. LIKE NOW. And wait untill January!?!?! Yea, I know that mentality..."I need to wait because..."I can't right now because I dont FEEEEL ready"...blah blah blah...The "waiters" in life will miss living an awesome life......or they decide to commit but they are the FIRST to quit and blame others for their lack of success. But that's not you....because I know you, and I know you genuinely want MORE out of life too. But first lets talk about the importance of self care and putting YOU first...

Self care doesn't require hours...I'm talking a....
πŸ‘‰πŸ½20- 40 minute sweat sesh a few days a week.
πŸ‘‰πŸ½Choosing healthier food. 
πŸ‘‰πŸ½Learning to say NO to people who take advantage of you or bring you down. 
πŸ‘‰πŸ½Diving into a personal development audio book 15-30 min a day(& listen on your way to work!). 

For your OWN Happiness, taking care of YOU is first priority. Because at the end of the day don't you WANT to be fulfilled and be able to love yourself, your life and love othersπŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈ ....well that begins with YOU and your willingness to not WAIT any longer.#yougotthis #imheretohelp


Leftovers

46746531_10155769710661835_8724967822620360704_n.jpg

Anyone else love leftovers so much that you have to take a ridic selfie with thier bowl of potato salad and turkey?!?! πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚no..ok....but in all seriousness though I hope all of your Thanksgivings are happy, thankful and filled with time with your loved ones and always remember to practice gratitude not just this season but always....
...
β€œGratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."
