Get Ripped in Just 4 Days a Week of Workouts!

How many of you don’t exercise regularly because you don’t have time?
I know that’s absolutely been a factor for me in the past! And even now! I have a 2.5 yr old and a 5 month old who depend on me for survival on top of working my booty off to keep up with my health & business coaching business. I TRULY can’t do a workout longer than 30 minutes, and I barely make it through that without having to feed someone or change a dirty diaper.
This is why I’m SOOOOO FREAKING EXCITED about the release of our newest fitness program- LIIFT4.
LIFTING+HIIT (HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING)+ 4 DAYS A WEEK= LIIFT4
That’s right!!! In this program you only work out 4 days, 30 minutes a day for 8 weeks. And THESE ARE THE RESULTS people are getting!!!!
I am like a giddy school girl right now! Check these out…

Mother’s Day Special

30697641_10100194010453934_8653211249955307520_nMother’s Day is literally DAYS AWAY! I can’t believe it!!

Since I became a mama 2 years ago, and even more so since I become I mother of 2, 4-months ago, I have become very passionate about helping other moms invest in themselves. Being a mother is the most rewarding, amazing, challenging, thankless, selfless, important job on the planet. We’re literaly training and raising the next generation of humanity! In the hustle and bustle of this mom life, usually we forget the fact that if we’re sucked dry, completely drained, overwhelmingly exhausted, lack confidence, down on ourselves, unhealthy, and unfulfilled…well, our entire family suffers. It’s so easy to take the martyr role and tell ourselves, “This is what I signed up for, my kids need to always come first no matter what the cost”. We find some sort of twisted satisfaction of being run ragged all the time. Why do we do that? Sometimes we’re weirdos, us mothers…it could be the delusional state we’re in from not sleeping through the night…ever. ๐Ÿ™‚

SO…that’s where I come in. Most of you know I’m a Registered Nurse. I paid over $100k (ya I know…) and went to school for 4 years to get that RN after my name. I did it because I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. I wanted to be there for them when life got rough, I wanted to help them heal, grieve, prevent illness, treat illness and injury, that was my driving force. Since I graduated in 2009, my perspective and knowledge in the area of health has drastically shifted. Now…I want to be the nurse for other nurses who are killing themselves due to stress and poor lifestyle choices. I want to be the nurse for moms, busy entreprenuers, and individuals who are walking down a dangerous path to significant health problems. There’s SO MUCH we can do to help you feel amazing and prevent SO MANY life-altering diseases! THAT is what I do now with my RN license, because I see the huge need and I have a huge gift to give in the information I’ve learned over the years.

Sorry…total tangent. SO! MOOOOOMS…This week, when you decide to make this investment in yourself and join our team, Health Patriot Nation, I will send you a $15 gift card to say THANK YOU for all you do to make this world a better place!

So, what are we talking about here, Jessica? Well, I’m so glad you asked! We just launched a revolutionary program called 2B Mindset! If you’ve ever struggled with weight loss, chronic dieting, emotional eating, stress eating/not eating, feeling guilty from eating a cheat meal, starving and binging, etc…you NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE!

If you are in this for the long run, meaning you are SO OVER dieting and the vicious cycle of losing 10 lbs only to gain 20 lbs back when you stop starving yourself, there has never been a better time.

We have a challenge pack “bundle” that give you all the tools you’ll need to not only hit those weight loss goals, but to regain your vibrant energy, improve your digestion, improve your skin clarity, become more resilient to stress, tone up your muscles, strengthen your immune system, and feel CONFIDENT IN YOUR OWN SKIN again!

INSAAAAAANE! Right?! Oh man, these photos get me SO STOKED to do this program in a few weeks! For those of you who don’t know, our team will be starting an 80 Day Challenge on March 12th! This means our ending day will be May 31st! Let me as you a question….

WHERE WILL YOU BE MAY 31ST?

Because, let me tell you something my friend! May 31st is going to come whether you like it or not, whether you decide to commit to a health & fitness program or waste your life away with nachos…either way, the days will pass and that day is going to come around. WHO YOU ARE on that day is 100% UP TO YOU! So, this is my formal invitation to you to join me and our team on this 80 day adventure to getting our best results EVERRRR!

Wondering what 80 Day Obsession is all about? Let me break down the facts for you!

Who is 80 Day Obsession For?

  • Those who want a leaner, firmer, more sculpted body
  • Anyone who wants tighter, stronger glutes that not only function properly and help you move better, but also look great!
  • Anyone who wants a program to help relieve back pain with a more defined midsection and stronger core.
  • Those who are ready for a complete lifestyle adjustment that will focus on innovative nutrition and extreme self care.
  • Fitness fans looking for an intense, comprehensive workout and nutrition program they can do at home

The good news? You still have time to get your mind right and your body ready for 80 Day Obsession. We have a ramp up group starting 2/26 to get our minds & bodies ready for this amazing program!

What Are the Workouts Like?

This is the FIRST Beachbody program to EVER have a new workout for each day! There are 80 unique workouts in three phases, and each workout has a particular focus โ€” Booty, Total Body Core, AAA, Legs, Cardio Core, and Cardio Flow. Workouts range from 30-60 minutes 6-Days a week. This is not considered a beginner program. It is recommend you have a basic fitness level before attempting to do this program. There is a modifier if you are unable to do the strict exercise. Most of the program is considered low impact for those who have problems with high impact exercises on their joints.

What Equipment Will You Need for 80 Day Obsession?

Youโ€™ll need some dumbbells (light, medium, and heavy, depending on your fitness level),ย portion-control containers, strength slides,ย resistance loops, and aย matย if youโ€™re working out on a hard floor. All equipment, except dumbbells, are available for purchase. Containers, strength slides, & resistance loops are all included in your 80 Day Obsession Challenge Pack or Completion Pack!

What is the Nutrition Plan?

Revolutionary. Autumn is a true expert in getting our bodies insane results! She knew these results wouldn’t be possible without intentional nutrition. 80 Day Obsession uses a custom calculation to find each individual’s ideal calorie range to burn fat. They then take that meal plan they fit into and structure their meals using timed nutrition. You’ll be eating specific portions at specific times in correlation to your workout for maximum results. It sounds more complicated than it is. The STRUCTURE this program provides is insane! This is NOT a diet! It is so much more about structuring a healthy lifestyle that works for you!

What nutritional supplements do you recommend for 80 Day Obsession?

Because thereโ€™s never been an eating plan so specifically timed to maximize your results, both Shakeology and Beachbody Performance are important components of the 80 Day Obsession eating plans. Shakeology is an easy and delicious way to provide your body with the dense nutrition it craves every day for overall health. And Beachbody Performance provides targeted supplementation thatโ€™s ideal for giving your body what it needs at just the right times to help you get better results. Your eating plan explains exactly how and when to use each one for maximum benefits. For more information about these supplements, shoot me an email or visit theย Shakeologyย or Beachbody Performanceย websites.

What Coaching & Support is Included?

For every person who participates in this challenge, in the beginning, I will do a 1:1 video call to customize their plan and go over any health imbalances, concerns, or questions. You will then be added to our ramp up group on Facebook to get you ready for our 3/12 launch date. We will be doing “A Little Obsessed” workouts leading up to 80 DO to physically prepare ourselves & practice our timed nutrition. Once it gets closer to our launch date, I will launch our Challenge Tracker App where you will track all your workouts & Shakeology drinks. You will have unlimited support throughout the entire program where you can ask any questions that may come up. There will be daily posts from your coaches in this app to help keep you inspired & motivated to give your all! I also will be giving away prizes throughout the challenge to keep your competitive juices flowing! We will start this challenge as a team and we will end this challenge as a team. That’s how we roll! ๐Ÿ™‚

How Do I Get Started?

YAY! You want to join us! First, I need to get to know you a little better and what your goals are. Please complete this online application- Online Challenge Application.ย  Feel free to check out the THREE options for 80 Day Obsession Challenge Packs…

Our Natural Birth Story

26219121_10100168822116564_5903141336803490713_n

Our sweet little babe made his arrival on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 at 12:37pm after a 6 hour labor. He weighed 7lbs 12 oz and was 20 3/4 inches of perfection!

Every birth story is unique and beautiful in it’s own way. This birth was so….weird for lack of a better term. ๐Ÿ™‚ Let’s start at the beginning…

December 29th was my due date. I set myself up for frustration by having high expectations of an early birth. With my first pregnancy I was put on bed rest at 29 weeks pregnant because of preterm labor complications. He was born 2 days after his due date. With my history, I thought for sure, this baby would be early- no question about it! At 37 weeks pregnant I started to pick up my exercise intensity and started researching which natural remedies I wanted to use to help my body prepare for labor. 39 weeks hit. I was 60% effaced and dilated to about a 2. Baby was head down in my pelvis and ready to come out! So, I started some acupuncture treatments to help encourage my uterus along….40 weeks hit and I was a grumpy panda! I continued with acupuncture and homeopathic remedies. I was having sporadic contractions but they never turned into labor. 41 weeks hit…and I felt like I was going to be pregnant for forever! Physically, my body was holding up just fine, but mentally and emotionally, I was struggling!

41 weeks
41 weeks

Tuesday morning, January 9, 2018 my husband woke me with a kiss good bye as he left for work at 0530. I noticed some slight contractions but I didn’t think anything of them since I had been having contractions off and on for a month at that point. I fell back asleep and they woke me up again at 0600, again I didn’t really think anything of them. At 0630 they were still there about every 10-15 minutes. At 0700 I decided to give my husband a heads up that they were continuing, but I didn’t let myself believe I was going into labor…I thought I was for sure going to be the first person in history to be pregnant for forever…ya, dramatic I know. Haha… At 0730 they were still there and about 8 minutes apart. I told the hubs it was time to come home just in case since my last labor was so fast (start to finish 4 hours). By the time he got home at 0800, I had already messaged my midwife, doula, and our birth photographer. Sorry if this is TMI…but you’ll have to get over it if you want to keep reading. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Haha… By that time, I had some bloody show and lots of mucous when I went pee. Due to my history of fast labor, my midwife had me come in at 0830.

My contractions were every 5-8 minutes. Nothing too intense and nothing I couldn’t breathe through. I was full of smiles because this baby was FINALLY coming out of me!! I have to admit, when I got to our birth center (Side note…Sierra Natural Birth Center is AMAZING! It’s a house that was converted into a birth center with several birthing rooms with birthing tubs and neonatal/maternal “crash carts” available in case of emergencies) I have to admit, I felt a bit…weird. Other than my contractions that would come and go, I felt great! I was walking around, bouncing on the birthing ball, joking with my husband, doing squats…you name it. I asked my midwife to check me. I was already at 8cm dilated! Everyone was surprised…I didn’t feel like I had gone through tough enough labor to be at an 8!

About 1130 rolled around and I was getting frustrated that my labor didn’t feel like it was progressing. My contractions were staying at 5 minutes apart and were getting slightly stronger, but I was still walking around and having conversations between contractions. When I arrived, I peed in a cup and we found I was peeing ketones. This meant that my body was hungry. I forgot to eat in the craziness of the morning. I remember learning from my midwife that the uterus can get fatigued and labor can stop dead in it’s tracks if the body is hungry. We totally forgot to pack food! Thankfully I threw some Shakeology in my bag, so I downed a strawberry Shakeology. It was delicious! Immediately my contractions kicked up a knotch. I decided to get in the birthing tub to see if it would help my body relax so we could get this whole labor thing over with! Yes…that’s how my brain works. I’m incredibly impatient…haha.

I got into the warm water, which felt amazing. About 15 minutes in, they checked me again. I was at a 10! I was told to reach down because I could feel the babies head, he was so low! I was seriously shocked… My contractions never got any closer than about 5 minutes apart. I never felt the “urge” to push. I distinctly remember that overwhelming feeling with my first! I was told with my next contraction, if I wanted to, I could try and push. Mind you at this point, my water still hadn’t broken yet! So…I used those core muscles I had been working on strengthening for 2 years with the next contraction…and I felt a burst! WTF?! Did his head just pop off??? No…no…that was my water bag. Phew! What a bizarre feeling! The next push his head came out…then of course he turned weird and his shoulders got stuck…the next push was his shoulders and finally the rest of his body. Ouch…those shoulders! (Ok…you guys are going to laugh at me. You know that game, “Watch ya mouth” where people where those mouth pieces that stretch their mouth open?? Ya…that was exactly what I was thinking about when I was pushing his shoulders out…That’s how my hoo-ha felt! HA!) But FINALLY he was here!! And I got to hold him in my arms! He immediately latched on and started chowing down (and he hasn’t stopped eating constantly since that day!). We got to soak up those first minutes of his life together right there with him on my chest, my hubs right by my side without any other interruptions. It was such a beautiful moment. 6 hours of labor and I was finally at the end! <3

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We then decided it was time to move me to a bed for the next phase of birth…the placenta. This is where things got a bit…complicated. I was told with the next cramping I had to try to push to deliver the placenta. It took a few pushes and some assistance from my midwives, but it finally came out. And it was huge…I feel like it was twice the size of my first son’s. Placenta’s are SO BONKERS to me! It’s a disposable sack of nutrition to grow your baby that comes out of essentially no where! SO AMAZING! Anyways…so, placenta was delivered, daddy got to cut baby’s cord after it had stopped pulsating and all the blood from the cord went back into baby’s body, and I was soaking up my newborn. A few minutes later I felt a gush of blood…midwives checked me and massaged my uterus. That seemed to do the trick. Until 5 minutes later when I felt another gush… They checked me again, massaged my uterus and once again seemed fine. On the 3rd gush I felt, they decided to give me a shot of pitocin in the thigh. With the next gush, I had an IV started with IV fluids and PIT, and they had to go “digging”… ya…I know…to make sure there weren’t any clots or placental tissue causing the bleeding. In that moment I felt my midwife pull out 4 handful of clots & blood…that is when the nurse brain in me flipped on and started to be concerned. I had another shot of Methergine in my other quad, and another drug given to me elsewhere to help my uterus pull it together and clamp down. At this point, I had lost quite a bit of blood and due to the adrenaline, my body started shaking like I had the shivers. I wasn’t scared, I was concerned, but not super anxious. I felt super cold and I knew my poor husband was quite terrified although he held it together great. My next question was, “At what point do I need to go to the hospital?”At that point I had lost about 1300-1500 mL of blood.

My amazing midwives explained to me that we weren’t to that point yet. The clots that were removed seemed to do the trick. My uterus hadn’t efficiently contracted to get all the clots out and it was causing excess bleeding, but once they were removed, my body finally cooperated. Thankfully I had an incredible birthing team who knew exactly what to do to keep me safe.

The rest of the evening consisted of resting, EATING!, drinking beet juice, drinking BB Hydrate to restore my electrolytes, and soaking up our new little love. You were worth the wait baby Liam!


Many mama’s ask me what my “secrets” are to having a natural childbirth and getting through the pain. Here are some of the lessons I learned and tools that worked for me:

  • Fear=Pain and a longer labor. Do whatever you need to in order to feel safe, comfortable, and relaxed. Know that your body was created to give birth. Yes, it will hurt, but only for a short period of time.
  • Take each contraction as it comes. Get through one at a time and try not to think too far ahead into the future. Definitely don’t watch the clock. You need to be as relaxed as possible.
  • A doula is really great support for both mom and dad. They can be there to hold pressure points, get heat packs, massage, anything needed to get you through labor.
  • EAT something healthy & nutrition as soon as labor starts. You don’t want to end up with a fatigued uterus like I did! Or a fatigued mind & body for that matter! Shakeology was CLUTCH for me through labor!
  • Music is SO powerful to help keep your mind off the pain and in the zone. I listened to Lauren Daigle Pandora channel throughout our entire labor and it was incredibly helpful!
  • Do the best you can to minimize the people in the room. This is about YOU feeling as relaxed and comfortable as possible as you bring a tiny human earth side. Don’t feel bad if you need to ask family to stay in the waiting room.
  • HYDRATE yourself throughout labor. This is also very important to keep labor progressing. I chose to drink Hydrate from the Beachbody Performance Line throughout labor and that really helped me! It also gave me a great jump start on my milk supply! I will drink it all through nursing my baby.
  • Stay as active as possible throughout labor. It will really help you progress faster and it helps mentally to change strategies often unless you find something that is really working for you.
  • Heat packs helped me SO much with both of my labors. Use them on your belly or back, whatever provides more relief.
  • If you can relax in a tub during labor, it’s really awesome! It’s been known to be referred to as “nature’s epidural”.
  • Your MIND is the biggest obstacle in labor. Keep your eyes focused on holding your sweet baby in just a short amount of time. Talk to them through contractions. You and baby are a team to bring them earth side. <3
  • The one book I took the most from even though I didn’t necessarily follow everything in it was “Hypnobirthing” by Marie Mongan. I highly recommend the read!

If you’ve been following my posts for the past few weeks on Social Media, you’ve been noticing a buzz about the new programs we’re launching and kicking off as a team starting January 1st! My inbox is FULL of inquiries about these programs, the details, pricing, etc, so I thought I’d breakdown all the details for you here! For those of you wanting to FEEL, look, BE amazing…Look no further. You have found the answer and I am SO excited to be able to offer it to you guys!

There are TWO test groups we will be running to CRUSH the first 101 days of 2018:

JANUARY 1-21: THE ULTIMATE RESET

JANUARY 22- APRIL 12: 80 DAY OBSESSION

Below I will explain the two and why I’m SO excited for those on our team who will be completing BOTH!


THE ULTIMATE REST

ultimateresetheaderIn a Nutshell: This program is a 21-Day, 3-phase total body reset.

Nutrition: It is broken down into 3 phases. Each week the menu changes. The meals, shopping lists, and recipes are all broken down for you. You are told exactly what to eat throughout the program. There is a “crunch guide” to make meals easier and interchangeable within the phases if there are any foods on the program that you do not like. This is not a starvation cleanse. There are real meals with real foods for the entire 21 days.

Exercise: Rigorous exercise is not recommended through this program. No exercise is required, however there is a 21-Day Ultimate Reset yoga routine that accompanies the program and aids with cleansing, detoxification, energy, and reducing stress levels.

Supplements: When you order your Ultimate Reset kit, it will come with a variety of supplements including: digestive enzymes, probiotics, a fiber supplement, alkaline supplement, & a mineral supplement. These supplements as well as your Shakeology (preferably vegan) will be specifically divided throughout the 3 phases.

Important Dates: This program will begin on Monday January 1st and the final day will be Sunday, January 21st. YOU MUST ORDER YOUR ULTIMATE RESET KIT NO LATER THAN 12/25/17 IN ORDER TO RECEIVE IT IN TIME TO START WITH THE TEAM.

Support: We will have an online support community & a tracker app available to keep each other motivated and accountable. There will be days that are harder than others, so completing this program as a team will be HUGE to make us all successful! You will have all the support you need to get through these 21 days.

Common Results: While no results are guaranteed as everyone is coming from a different starting point, many (including our CEO) believe The Ultimate Reset program is THE most powerful the company of Beachbody has to offer! That’s a big deal! The reason is because the internal transformations have been phenomenal! I personally know people who have been taken off several chronic medications after completing the Ultimate Reset program. Cholesterol has plummeted, Triglycerides decreased, high diabetes markers fell, chronic fatigue eliminated, chronic PAIN that had previously been diagnosed as arthritis…GONE! It’s SO amazing to watch people’s lives be transformed in 21 days. If you missed it, I actually had a close friend of mine and her husband complete this program together and they documented their journey all the way through. Their results were phenomenal! You can read more here- Week 1 , Weeks 2& 3. Here are some before & after pics of program veterans…

How to Participate:


80 DAY OBSESSION

Related image

In a Nutshell: This program is BRAND NEW! It is a 13-Week (80-Day) challenge aimed at shaping your arms, abs, & a$$!

Nutrition: The nutritional guide for this program utilizes science based timed nutrition. It is customized for each individual’s starting point & goals and broken down into simple steps for how to get you your best results inside & out.

Exercise: For the first time EVER, this ENTIRE program will be unique workouts for each day. You will never repeat a workout! There are 80 separate workouts to get you through the entire program. How awesome is that!? Each workout length averages to be about 45 minutes long and is definitely on the more intense side. This program will get you in INSANE shape, but requires a TRUE commitment!

  • Equipment: You’ll need a set of light, medium, & heavy dumbbells, a mat for hard floors, PLUS the program specific bands & strength sliders. These come with your 80 Day Obsession challenge pack!

Supplements: Shakeology is a MUST for this program, especially if you’re looking to get incredible results inside & out. From the original test group participants, it is STRONGLY recommended to also take advantage of the Beachbody Performance line- Energize (A plant based clean pre-workout) & Recovery (A clean BCAA’s formula and extra source of protein for muscle recovery). There are challenge packs designed to save you a TON of $$$ so you can take advantage of these products.ย 

Important Dates: This program will begin on Monday, January 22nd. ALL 80 Day Obsession challenge packs are on sale NOW through January 14th. The final day to order your challenge pack will be Sunday, January 14th. YOU MUST ORDER YOUR 80 DAY OBSESSION MATERIALS NO LATER THAN 1/14/17 IN ORDER TO RECEIVE IT IN TIME TO START WITH THE TEAM.

Support: We will have an online support test group community & a tracker app available to keep each other motivated and accountable. NONE of us have done this program before, so as a TEAM we will be testing out this brand new program and new nutritional approach together.

Common Results: Since this program hasn’t been launched yet, the only results we have are from the original Beachbody test group participants. You know what’s powerful about this though?? These test group participants have been involved with Beachbody for years. Most of them have tried several of the different programs if not all of them! So, their response and results are genuine and in comparison to all the other successful programs they’ve tried! After reading through several of the testimonials, I noticed a theme…Is this program easy?? Uhh…no. But…that shouldn’t scare you! Why should great results come easy? This program takes a commitment and is a fun challenge from HOME! You must realize that you will struggle here and there, but know you can rely on your team and push through to get head turning results you’ve never before achieved for yourself! How AWESOME will that feel?? Check out these phenomenal results these regular, busy people got in less than 3 months…

WOOOOW, RIGHT?!?!?!

These photos don’t even TOUCH on the internal transformations that took place inside each of these individuals. The confidence, inner strength, and BELIEF that was restored in each of their minds and hearts was truly incredible to hear about! That’s something we ALL could use, right?!

How to Participate:


OK, so there you have it! There is a breakdown of the two most epic programs I have to offer you guys to get you the most incredible results in 2018!

I would really love to speak with you personally to see what your goals are, how I can best help support you in your goals, and answer any questions you may have about these options.

My BEST recommendation and what I will be doing once I’m approved by my midwife to do so is BOTH programs!

Listen…time is going to pass whether you make this investment or not! Money will come and go, I promise you. We ALL can make smarter financial investments. There is NO better investment you can make than investing in your health and the health of your family. Truly…nothing else matters if you aren’t enjoying your life and feeling amazing.

The most common objection I get about joining a challenge group is finances. I 100% understand being fiscally responsible. I support living a debt free life and being frugal with your money. That being said, THIS is not the area that should be cut back first. See what other areas you can cut back on in order to invest in yourselves. EVERY AREA of our life will benefit from us being energetic, healthy, vibrant, passionate, confident, and STRONG! This is YOUR time to feel your absolute best. The reality is…you know you can’t afford NOT to anymore.

Message me and let me know how I can help! I can’t wait for us all to feel absolutely incredibly inside & out as we get healthier & stronger together in 2018!

November Specials- EMPOWERING FAMILIES

IMG_4988

Happy Monday!

I’m super excited for today’s blog post and the new announcements I have for you about this month! Many of you know, family is a HUGE passion of mine. Every aspect of it… I love talking about challenging and helpful topics related to marriage, pregnancy, raising health children, nutrition, vaccinations, immune boosters, stress management, relationships, meal planning, playing together, all of the above… So, the fact that this month’s focus is on EMPOWERING FAMILIES is right up my alley! There are two specific promotions & specials I have for you this month and I’m equally excited about BOTH!

Here’s a breakdown…

1- TONY HORTON’S REVOLUTIONARY FAMILY PROGRAM- DOUBLE TIME

Image result for double time tony horton

I’ve been SO excited about the launch of this program since it was announced at Summit in July! Legendary Tony Horton has created a family oriented home fitness program & nutritional guide loaded with family friendly recipes, shopping lists, & personalized guides! AHHHH!!!! SOOO STOKED! SO many families are going to benefit from this program! Tony’s intention with this program was to get both kids and parents to put DOWN their cell phones and engage with each other in person! Don’t you LOVE that?! AND of course…it’s on sale! Even better!

For those of you who have been on the fence about joining our team, there has never been a better time! You can join now with this new challenge pack! It includes:

  • Your first month’s supply of Shakeology
  • The entire Portion Fix container system
  • An entire YEAR of access to Beachbody On Demand with ALL Beachbody programs ever created
  • Access to the digital version of Double Time
  • PLUS a free shaker bottle & Buddy ball to complete all your workouts!

In addition to all these goodies, you will be added to our exclusive team Facebook page where we keep each other accountable, ask questions, share recipes, tips, ideas, & enjoy a TEAM environment where we’re all living busy crazy lives, but are dedicated to becoming better versions of ourselves.

To take advantage of this month’s amazing sale, you can purchase your challenge pack here-

Check out the program for yourself!


2- Launch of “The Empowered Family Project”

The Empowered Family Project(2)

THIS has been on my heart for a while and has turned into a passion project of mine. The Empowered Family Project is an online community created to help support and empower families from all over the globe to live healthy lives-body, mind, & soul. So many parents struggle with how to raise healthy children. It is evident in today’s health statistics. In America, 1 in 3 children are overweight. Childhood diabetes, obesity, and other lifestyle diseases are dramatically rising with each year.

THIS HAS TO STOP.

The best way…the ONLY way we can create positive change is to empower households across America with the tools they need in order to create healthy lifestyle habits as a family. This is a free group. No sales pitch, no requirements to join. It is the beginning of a movement and all who share this passion of mine are welcome to join. Request to join here- https://www.facebook.com/groups/372671173184508/. Together, we truly can change the world, but it has to start in our homes.


There you have it! 2 simple & powerful options for you to have an impact in your family and ultimately your world. How will you choose to end 2017? Will you take advantage of these opportunities for you and your family now? Or will you wait until a diagnosis creeps into your family before you wake up to how critical your investment in yourself is? Tough questions…but necessary.

I’m here if you have any questions! I look forward to speaking with you!

2 New Amazing Challenges Coming Up!

West WisteriaBed & Breakfast

Can you believe it’s OCTOBER 15th?! We only have 2.5 months left of 2017!! That is so crazy to me!

Fall is my most favorite time of the year. I love the smells, the colors, the family time, the hot drinks and warm sweaters…The HOLIDAYS <3 .

We know the routine though….every year we go into this time of year without a plan. Every year between October and January, many Americans gain between 5-15 lbs and feel like CRAPOLA because of how they gorged themselves on those holiday months. Every year, those same people make new years resolutions to be better the next year, to hit the gym more, become vegan, go on a juice fast, go sugar free, blah blah..etc. Every year usually by January 15th, everyone is back to their old ways and are still carrying around that extra holiday weight.

SO…I’d like to propose a different strategy for this year! A strategy that DOES NOT include starvation, extreme workouts, hours at the gym, time away from family, gross diet bars, or deprivation. A plan that will actually help you LOSE up to 20 pounds from October-January!

I want to lead a select group of motivated individuals to finish this year stronger & healthier than we started it! We are in the final quarter of the game. We all know it doesn’t matter as much how you start a game, but more how you finish it. THIS is our time!

I will give you all the tools you need to feel better than you ever have by January 1, 2018. You will be given, meal plans, efficient and short workouts that you can do at home or the gym (your choice), a specific nutritional guide, an incredible nutritional supplement to help your body heal and regenerate from the inside out, AND most importantly, a TEAM to do it with. We all know all the tools are pointless unless we use them. This is where my coaching and our team’s accountability comes in clutch! We will do our best to keep you motivated and inspired every day!

Here’s the deal though…you need to jump in NOW! It takes 5-7 days to receive your challenge pack in the mail and we’re jumping in to our new programs SOON! As advertised above, you have TWO options to join us…

1* Clean Week Challenge:

  • This is for those of you who are not ready to jump in just quite yet. You will receive 1 week of Shakeology, 1 week of meal plans, 1 week ofย  30 minute workout plans, & 1 week of support! ALL for only $29.95! This gives you a great idea as to how our challenge groups run, what our programs are like, and how Shakeology makes you feel without any major commitment.
  • To join this Challenge with us, you MUST order your Clean Week Sampler Pack by Monday, October 16th. Here are your options:

Image result for clean week beachbody


2* 21-Day Gratitude Challenge:

  • This is for those of you who are ready to jump in with us! Maybe you’ve seen the results that have come out of these programs already…maybe you’ve been watching our posts for a while and are ready to finally commit to becoming the best version of yourself…maybe you really struggle through the holidays and having a supportive community sounds like a Godsend to you…whatever your reason may be, you are ready to accept this 21-Day Challenge. I don’t know about you, but it seems like the season around the holidays is always so RUSHED. We RUSH to Thanksgiving and only take 10 seconds on the day of Thanksgiving to actually be thankful! I want to change it up this year. Starting October 30th, we’ll be doing a round of 21 Day Fix together and the theme throughout our 21 days is going to be GRATITUDE. How to truly appreciate our health, our bodies, our families, our LIVES! It’s going to be awesome!
  • To join this challenge with us, you’re in luck BECAUSE…the most popular and EPIC challenge pack ever created by Beachbody is on sale through the end of the year! You’ll need to purchase your challenge pack NO LATER THAN October 23rd. The Annual All Access Challenge Pack will give you EVERYTHING you need to be successful including:
    • 1 Month Supply of Shakeology + Shaker bottle
    • 1 YEAR unlimited On Demand Access to Beachbody On Demand which includes ALL Beachbody fitness programs, meal plans, recipe guides, recipe books, cooking shows, and nutritional guides ever created!
    • The Portion Fix Container system to help you eat your favorite foods in the perfect portions.
    • Our team support and unlimited health & fitness coaching for as long as you want to participate!
  • To order, simply click the following link- Annual All-Access Beachbody On Demand and Shakeology Challenge Pack

One more important detail…PLEASE, if you decide to join us for either of these options or if you have any questions, shoot me an email at TheHealthPatriot@Gmail.comย  So I can make sure you are added to our challenge and get all the support! This is an opportunity for you to take OWNERSHIP over your life and your future. What will you do with it?

I hope to be working with you soon!

Let’s Do This!
