Made to Crave Challenge


Lysa Terkeurst, Made to Crave Support, Made to Crave book, Katy Ursta, One Fit Fighter
Those who enroll by October 5th will receive the book from me!
I have no idea what finally made me decide to pick up the book.  It's one of those bizarre instances where you keep hearing about it over and over, and you add it to your Amazon cart without really giving the actual one click order much thought.

I think though it was the post I saw on facebook.  A friend of mine was talking about her sugar addiction.  As she spoke... I sat there and thought.  Yes. That's me.

The girl who stepped on the scale with one foot instead of two.
The girl who licked way too much of the cake batter.
The girl who secretly hit the snack cabinet long after the kids went to bed.
The girl who spent most of her life celebrating joyous times with food.
The girl who's reward has always been food.
The girl who let a number determine her worth.

...especially cake.

So when I read chapter one, this kinda slapped me in the fact.

"'Everything is permissable.  Not everything is beneficial'" (1 Corinthians 10:23).

I've avoided this book because it's a truth I can't ignore.

It's all about choice.  I've chosen for a long time to allow food to dictate my mood.  I have chosen to allow food to be my reward.  I've chosen my current situation.

And if this is what I've always chosen, the cycle ends with me.  It's my choice to change. It's a choice to crave something other than food.

So I took my book, and I prayed. I had this feeling that God was asking me to crave something other than the late night cheetohs, and the gummy bears.

How can I not want to pay this forward?

Food doesn't have to be frustration. It can be about fulfillment again.



1. I've learned that moderation is a heck of a lot more gratifying than deprivation.
2I've learned that I am more patient when I make myself a priority.
3. I' ve learned how to end the "start Monday" cycle. 
4. I've learned how to break up with the scale. 
5. I've learned that perfection is a myth.

This kind of confidence comes only from worrying less and winging it more. This confidence comes when you stop judging yourself for all you didn't accomplish and start accepting how truly awesome you are.  This comes with the confidence and understanding that it's not the food you really crave, it's the temporary comfort it provides. 


This is the kind of confidence that comes when you realize, YOU ARE A PRIORITY and there is something greater you crave.  Let's work together to figure out what it is you really crave.

Leadership Retreat Recap

Destin 2016 Recap!

I am getting ready to head home after a long weekend in Destin, Florida. I miss my boys like crazy, but having the opportunity to spend time with my personally sponsored team leaders and treat them to a four day retreat in a beautiful mansion was an absolute honor.
Our Destin Retreat Home for the Long Weekend!


This weekend consisted of top coach trainings, relaxation, photo shoots, and surrounding ourselves other like minded women within our network.  Our career as coaches usually means that we are working and networking behind the computer screen.  As coaches we create virtual challenge groups to help women and men achieve their health and fitness goals. But when the opportunity presents itself, we love to get together, and just enjoy the company of one another.

Here's what our week looked like.  On Wednesday we flew into Destin, Fl and had an opportunity to check out the amazing city, hang by the pool, and enjoy a wonderful dinner at a local restaurant!  I had my first taste of gumbo and it was delicious!

Layover in Atlanta before Landing in Destin!



We woke up Thursday and got into our houses!  Our house was a beautiful mansion perfect for 25 team members of legacy united and The Knockout Brigade.  We quickly decorated and prepared for the Friday arrival of our coaches!

It's a Rough Day in the Office!


Friday was filled with lots of conversation, and of course photo shoots throughout the day!  Our leaders also had the opportunity to talk with Cim Carver, a corporate trainer, who traveled to see us for the occasion!  It was an amazing training and the exact fuel the leaders needed to bring to their teams! We also had an amazing time at a huge Beach Olympics event.  I might add that I crushed the three-legged race! 


Getting the Girls Ready for Their Closeup

On Saturday we spent the morning in training and the afternoon beachside with cool beverages and lots of friendly conversation.  It was just an overall amazing opportunity to see my coaches and gift them this amazing opportunity. 
Dinner Beachside before the Girls Arrive!

It's still so incredible to believe how much my life has changed in the last couple years. One time I was at the grocery story. I believe it was a Thursday after school. I remember because Thursday meant I was one day closer to the weekend and dude... I really loved the weekend....
Anyways..
I was at the grocery story and I needed some milk. So I ran to daycare, picked up Nick (who was 2 at the time), and swung into the store for milk. As I was checking out the man at the register said, "insufficient funds.."
Embarrassed, I frantically looked for a credit card to pay for the milk. And I walked out of that store, angry, and frustrated...
I remember asking myself, "How does anyone ever get ahead..."
You see that time in my life I was about 20 pounds heavier. I couldn't afford a gym membership. Our mortgage and the PMI were KILLING us, and at the end of the day.. I had no energy to play with Nick...
You see why I loved the weekends? Sound familiar?
I changed because I didn't want that to be how my story went.
I bought a workout program. I pushed play.
I bought vegetables instead of tv dinners.
I invested in myself and learned how to make my change a lifestyle.
And then I started to teach people how to do the same.
------>---->Friends, my story is what I hear so often from others. But the story is yours to write.
------>---->I invite you to a a one day event where I will be sharing the specific tools I use to mentor my new coaches, and how I created a full time income with limited time, and the team opportunities that make our team unique.
I am not in the classroom anymore...
Today my classroom is Destin, Fl...
Poolside..
Mentoring others how to achieve results.

Perspective: My Worth is Not Determined by a Number on a Scale

Five years ago I remember looking in the mirror, overworked, tired and listening to my 2 year throw a tantrum about how I cut his hot dogs.

Apparently I did it wrong.


And that's what I felt.

I was doing it wrong.  Motherhood. "Wife-ing."

No one told me just how hard it was, and no one told me just how much a number on a scale play such a role into how I dealt with everything.

I guess it's a common issue. As women we are given a ridiculous standard to live up to, that we have nothing left to do but really fall short.

So I did.
My weight increased, and my self-worth decreased.




I don't know exactly what rock bottom really means, but I picture it as dark and empty.  I picture standing at the bottom of a chasm, with no one there to hear me yell, no one there to give me a ladder, but a small glimpse of light.

And that's what I had to reach for.  A glimpse of hope, the light.  I began to climb.

First step.  Admit that perfection was bullshit.
Second step. Take care of myself.
Third step. Remind myself that I am capable of climbing.
Fourth step. Keep climbing.


It started with a choice.  I needed to allow myself to refuse the myth of perfection, and admit that my flaws were simply part of the process. I stopped trying to achieve a number, and started to crave something bigger- happiness.

I ordered an at home workout.  I couldn't afford a gym membership, and I didn't have the time.  And the first time I pushed play, I fell to the ground. It was really hard. But I knew that it would be.  I was at the bottom of that chasm and needed to strengthen myself to climb out.

I pushed play every damn day. I cried some mornings.  I got off track, forgot why I started. I slipped. And then I got back up. Every day I did it because as I was working on me, my confidence was increasing, my patience as a mom was changing, I started to feel my self-worth, and then I started to look forward to the climb.

And then I kept climbing. Because fitness, the climb, isn't a one and done kinda job.  It's a commitment.  Just like mommin', like wife-ing, like anything in this world worth fighting for.


You are worth it.
I can help you start the climb.

*Challenge begins September 19th and involves a 4 week online commitment.  Watch to learn more.

Greek Chicken

How is it possible that I am a grown, 30-something, year-old-woman, and no one has ever told me about the deliciousness known as Greek seasoning?  For real, this seasoning is AMAZING!  It is my new favorite.  I picked it up in the organic section of my local grocery store.
The other night I decided to use it as a marinade for my chicken and the end result was perfect!  This recipe made four servings and there was enough left over for lunch the next day.  I served this with a side of quinoa salad and that recipe can be found here.  As a lunch, I placed a scoop into a pita pocket and topped it with some Feta cheese.  Simply scrumptious!
**NOTE: I cut the chicken to infuse my marinade inside the chicken breast.  This also ensures the chicken will be nice and juicy and tender!
