Learning from My Mistakes!

I’ve been a PATHETIC excuse for a business owner since losing Emerald Coach status in August, but that’s about to change. I’m going to COMPLETELY dive in and treat this as a real, true-blue business. Reading Mindy Wender’s story makes me even more inspired that I can do Beachbody FULL TIME from home, get out of debt. and help others, most importantly. 

I finally found that opportunity last June. No scam, no gimmicks, and honestly, if you roll up those sleeves and burn some elbow grease, you CAN earn a full time income. That’s my goal since I need a job that allows me the flexibility to be the best mom I can be. I LOVE teaching and writing, but doing it full time is very stressful. If you’re interested, I’d love to work with you, too, and we can make this dream a reality. We can do this together, but I need you to dive in with me

live fearlessly

get healthy

help others

and don’t hold back! 

We got this, and we’re going to rock ’14!

Fall is Here! Quick Update and Recipe…

Hello, my dear friends! Happy, healthy fall! 😀 I’m back to blogging and teaching, and it feels great. I’m taking it one step at a time and enjoying my hours spent at work. It’s late, baby is safely in her crib, and I have good time to think. Things have been getting better and better diet-wise for me, and I’ve been able to eliminate all meat except seafood for over a week. I love it! I feel MUCH lighter and generally better all over. It’s funny, but I think that all of the antibiotics found in meat were really messing up my hormones! I’m taking it easy with plenty of veggies, fruit, and soy-based foods. Honestly, I don’t even miss it; this new way of eating feels SO much more “me.”

Halloween is upon us, so I made some treats for my snacks for fun! Since I’ve never done a food blog post before and I’m VERY sleepy, I’m keeping it simple with a popular childhood recipe!

Ants on a Log:

This is one of my favorites, especially since it only requires three ingredients!

Gather organic celery, raisins, and coconut peanut butter. Why organic celery? Celery has a very thin, almost non-existent, skin, which soaks up pesticides very easily. Therefore, it is a good idea to buy organic celery, which contains none of these harmful substances.

Wash celery and chop off both tops and ends.

Spread a generous amount of peanut butter on each stalk, and top with your raisin “ants!” This is a great way to get kids in the kitchen! I love that there’s so much protein in this snack, and it helps to satisfy the junk food craving since it is very crunchy! Drizzle a little bit of honey over the finished product if you wish for even more flavor.

I’ll try to have more recipes up tomorrow. I am absolutely BEYOND sleepy and am going to finish sipping my tea and relaxing after a ballet workout. It is such a joy to have your readership, and I appreciate your patience as I resume my blogging! Until next time.
