THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPPLEMENTATION

THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPPLEMENTATION

When I was in 6th grade I became acquainted with depression. When I was 21 years old I hit my peak of depression and landed myself in a mental hospital on suicide watch.  
.

Joyful topic, huh?!  😉
.

I’m only sharing that today cuz in my Insta stories this morning I shared some of the supplements I take that have been helpful for my mood & energy. After a couple messages received there, I felt compelled to share this book. “Prescription for Nutritional Healing”.
.

Friends, depression is a very real thing. Being sad is...

LEARN, GROWN & BECOME REFINED

LEARN, GROWN & BECOME REFINED

You’ll have to forgive me, but I’m a little introspective on therapy days. #aintnoshameintherapy 
.
But after consoling my little girl I just felt a big insight into how God must feel with ME.  
.
You see, Phoebe just came home from school today quite upset. There’s a fundraiser starting at her school, and from what I’m understanding there was a school assembly to kick off the fundraiser. They showed the kids all the prizes they were giving away, and gave a few of the kids some prizes.

UNCOVERING YOUR POTENTIAL

UNCOVERING YOUR POTENTIAL

The last few days my workout routine has consisted of….

🖐🏼finger strengthening exercises when I give my mom foot and leg massages. 

💪🏼 a small amount of upper body strength movements as I support my mom when she needs to get out of bed and walk to the bathroom. 

and I’ll stretch to count walking around a grocery store, preparing a few meals, and tidying up my parent’s house as exercise.  😹

Unless I can also count watching my mom’s physical therapy movements as exercise 🤣 that about sums up the extent of exercise I’ve done this week. lol

It’s kind of cool when it feels WEIRD NOT working out for the last three days. Who would have thought?!!

THE 9 INCH PAN MENTALITY

THE 9 INCH PAN MENTALITY

Have you ever heard the story of the nine inch frying pan mentality?  

Here's the story......

A man walks up to a friend who is fishing. This friend has already caught several small fish, and then catches the BIGGEST fish of all, a real whopper.  

The man is surprised to see his friend immediately throw the giant fish back into the lake. 

"What are you doing? Why did you throw that fish back? It's clearly the best catch of the day!"

To switch the man replies ...

THE POWER OF CURIOSITY

THE POWER OF CURIOSITY

Not gonna lie, I feel good knowing my kids watch me workout cuz they will grow up with the belief that exercise is JUST WHATCHA DO.  

I grew up thinking exercise was what people did only when they wanted to lose weight. So I worked out here & there. I sought out healthier food options SOMETIMES, but only if I was feeling a little fluffy.  🚶🏼‍♀️

But one day that all changed. Thanks to ---

THIS MADE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE

THIS MADE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE

"Brigitte, how do I find the motivation to actually stick with my workout plan and make fitness a habit?"

Well friend, take it from me- do NOT try to motivate yourself with shame.  🙅🏻

The whole "oh my gosh I look terrible in these jeans I need to pull my ISH together" self talk just doesn't work.  

Listen, I use to think if I hated myself badly enough it would motivate me to make changes. [This went for everything in my life, not just health & fitness.]

Welllllll it doesn't work.  

But there was a mental shift when I was...

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO?

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO?

Before starting my own business my life credentials included:

- Getting kicked out of BYU for poor grades, told I couldn’t come back for at least five years since I repeatedly earned poor scores.  
- 2 years of working as a waitress at Denny’s & Applebee’s.  
- A long history of depression
- Small network. 250 Facebook friends and zero knowledge of how social media worked. I legitimately thought Instagram was ONLY a filter app! NO CLUE it had a social media component.  

----- yea, not the best resume...

But it really doesn't matter where you start …… what matters is

IS FEAR OF BEING JUDGED KEEPING YOU FROM LIVING YOUR DREAM LIFE?

IS FEAR OF BEING JUDGED KEEPING YOU FROM LIVING YOUR DREAM LIFE?

I can’t help but wonder…… how many have given up on their dreams to follow a perceived socially accepted path?

I have a new coach training starting, so today I’ve been connecting with ladies who are ready to learn how to build their own Beachbody business. And I hear their fears of society’s judgements. 

Was *I* worried what people would think of me for doing something unconventional?

Truthfully, YEAH… I think that’s pretty normal! 

But it got old real quick. I could see I was giving away pieces of MY integrity in hopes of gaining approval from others. 

Here’s what I figure……

FOUR YEARS OF FREEDOM

FOUR YEARS OF FREEDOM

All I ever wanted was a family. And the freedom to spend TIME with my family.  

This month celebrates FOUR YEARS we've had the FREEDOM to do just that!!

The end of July 2013 we said GOODBYE to Jayson's JOB as he sent in his resignation.  

We waited until all our debt was paid off. We waited until we had paid for a new car. We waited until we had six months of income in savings. We waited until our Beachbody coaching business was surpassing our previous income by 3x.  

By the end of July 2013 we didn't...

THE MOTIVATION MANIFESTO

THE MOTIVATION MANIFESTO

THIS BOOK is speaking to my soul right now!  "Let us awaken now and realize there is greater vibrancy, joy, and freedom available to each of us. There is more power. There is more love and abundance. But gaining access rests on our shoulders. Let us not hope for mere chance to change our story; let us summon the courage to change it ourselves. Some will stand in our way, but we mustn't hide or minimize ourselves any longer. Let us believe faithfully that our dreams are worth any struggle and that it is our time to free ourselves and rise to glory." ...

BEACHBODY COACH SUMMIT

BEACHBODY COACH SUMMIT

"You know that this convention is going to be a bunch of hype and rah rah nonsense, right?"

I'll never forget Jayson saying that to me as we turned the corner to see the Las Vegas lights off in the distance as we drove to our first Summit together.  

Here I was, geeking out excited.  💃🏼⚡️

& Jayson was trying to ensure I wasn't sorely disappointed.  😆

You see, Jayson had been...

DROP THE DONUT! IT ISN'T GOING TO FIX A THING!

DROP THE DONUT! IT ISN'T GOING TO FIX A THING!

Stressed?
Overwhelmed?  
Feeling overly emotional?  
Lots of things on your to-do list?  

Well, I think it's normal to feel that way from time to time. Life can't be all sunshine & rainbows.  ☀️🌈🤷🏻‍♀️

Now I'll admit, I'd love to control ALL THE THINGS, maybe then it COULD be all sunshine & rainbows 😉lol.  

Ain't possible though.  

What I can control is ...

MILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS... BUILT IN THE MOM CRACKS OF THE DAY

MILLION DOLLAR BUSINESS... BUILT IN THE MOM CRACKS OF THE DAY

The older my kids get, the more I appreciate the opportunity I have to bring in an income WITHOUT missing out on family experiences. 

This summer has been a series of wonderful memories with my family! & the whole time I've been able to work my business in what I call the "mom cracks" of each day. 
It's all crazy to me cuz growing up I sure didn't daydream about being a working mom. I envisioned a simple mom life. 🏡 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦
But ya know what? The more moms I talk to, the more I believe it's HEALTHY for moms to have something of their own on the side. Something where a mom can set TANGIBLE goals that push them out of their comfort zones. 
I feel pretty strongly about this cuz I personally feel a lot of depression moms experience is really...
