It is so important to wake up and go to bed everyday grateful and thankful for the many blessings in your life. I took 30 days in November to do just that. Here is a glimpse of my November and all that I have to be thankful. I’m glad I have all of these in one place to reflect upon if I ever think otherwise. #FFisThankful
Day 1: I can’t believe it is already November 1st! New months always make me excited and motivated, especially a month of giving thanks! I’m thankful for new months and fresh starts! #FFisThankful #MarathonMonth
Day 2: Yoga Fix ✔️ Upper Fix ✔️ Foam rolling ✔️
Today I am thankful for yoga and foam rolling to stretch and massage my super sore muscles!! #FFisThankful
Day 3: This weather is incredible!! I’m so thankful I have been able to train for a fall marathon! #FFisThankful
Day 4: I sure am thankful for the ability to wake up early while everyone else is still sleeping. I have had such a productive morning before anyone else is even awake! I love creating my own work hours #FFisThankful #wahm #readyfortheday
Day 5: When I was pregnant with Ashlyn, I remember thinking how could I ever love another baby as much as I loved Jordan. I would literally cry thinking about it (pregnancy hormones) and was so worried about how Jordan would adjust to being a big brother. Little did I know how much my heart would grow to add the love for this little girl. Ashlyn and I have an amazing bond that has only strengthened in the past two months. You spend so much one-on-one time with your first born, but it’s just not the same with your second…until now. I cherish the time we now have together. I’m so thankful for this beautiful, spunky, smart, bossy, happy, and tough little girl. She’s my workout buddy (Pilates Fix done and headed to the trail for a run this morning). Thank you God for blessing my life with her. ❤ #FFisThankful
Day 6: Today I’m thankful I’m able to go to the bus stop each day to get Jordan off the bus…even if it is a gloomy and rainy day! I’ll take it!! #FFisThankful
Day 7: When I teach Insanity, I am in the ZONE!! My focus is on the people taking my class and us all getting an AWESOME workout! It’s when everything else going on in the world just escapes my mind for those 50 minutes! I’m so thankful I discovered Insanity and Beachbody came out with the LIVE format! After years of thinking about it, this format is what finally made me a fitness instructor! #FFisThankful
Day 8: Today I’m so thankful for finding a church our whole family loves. To the point where as soon as I got home from my run, Ashlyn ran to me and asked me if I was ready to go to church (clearly I was not 😜)!! The fact that the kids absolutely love it makes it even more special! ❤ #FFisThankful #funnyfaces
Day 9: This is an incredible story! I’m so thankful a friend of mine sent it to me! Makes me super excited for the Philadelphia Marathon and now makes me want to run the NYC Marathon!! I won’t get ahead of myself!! 😜 #FFisThankful #PittsburghgirlrunsPhilly

Day 10: Today I want to give a shoutout to Team Fit & Focused! I am so very blessed and thankful I get to work with these coaches every single day. This picture is just a tiny portion of our team. The coaches on our team are spread out across the country and into Canada! These individuals are some of the kindest people I know…not only do they have huge hearts, they are dreamers, doers, motivators, supporters, goal diggers, encouragers, helpers, and life-changers. Being a Team Beachbody coach on Team Fit & Focused is far more than any shake or workout program. We have a bigger purpose, and we come together everyday to serve that purpose. I’m so proud to be a part of this team! Thank you for all that you do! #FFisThankful
Day 11: This morning I am thankful for a little shake called Shakeology. It sure has improved my health with the amount of vitamins and nutrients I’m getting all coming from whole foods. Never have I been able to take care of myself like I am able to now. For that I am extremely thankful! My health means everything to me! #FFisThankful
Day 12: I saved a yellow container for tonight!! Any ideas why?! I’m meeting up with some coaches on my team and I plan on enjoying a glass of wine! 🍷I LOVE how this program (21-Day Fix) easily fits into my life. I’m so thankful it has fit into so many other people’s lives and they are able to live a healthier lifestyle! ❤ #FFisThankful
Day 13: I’m thankful for Friday nights with my family ❤ #FFisThankful
Day 14: Jordan and Ashlyn were very excited to give our shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child tonight at church. I’m thankful we are able to give to those in need. I really hope to give back even more in the future! #FFisThankful
Day 15: Have you ever asked yourself the following questions…
Is there anything I need to do more of?
Is there anything I need to do less of?
Is there anything I need to start doing?
Is there anything I need to stop doing?
Almost three years ago, I was ready for a change. I was ready to take better care of myself and my family. I was ready to surround myself with positive people. I was ready for a positive change in my life. That positive change was making the decision to become a Team Beachbody Coach. When I decided to become a coach, I had three goals:
1) Get a discount
2) Help other busy women/moms like me
3) Earn a little money to pay for my Shakeology
I knew nothing about network marketing. I knew nothing about running a business. I knew nothing about becoming an entrepreneur. What I did know is that I had a passion for health and fitness, I wanted to help others, and I was following my heart.
Very SLOWLY I learned about the business. Very SLOWLY I grew my business. And eventually I realized the potential of this company and decided to go ALL IN. Nothing happened overnight for me. I NEVER went into this business wanting to replace my teaching job! But with consistency and hard work, I was able to make this a full-time career. There was something inside me that knew this was for me…this would allow me to contribute significantly to my family, but allow me to do it from home. I can do it from home while being with my two children. I am so thankful for this opportunity and how it has changed my life!
My point in all of this is that I went into this just wanting a small positive change in my life. Yes, it turned into something a lot bigger than I ever imagined. But it was that decision that initially gave me that small positive change. I had the CHOICE to do as much or as little as I wanted.
Are you looking for a change? Do you need something positive in your life? Do you have health and fitness goals you would like to reach? Would you like to make a little OR a lot of extra income for you and your family? If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, I want to HELP YOU!
I am looking to work with FIVE individuals who want to get started NOW before the new year begins! I would like to mentor you with your business and help you reach your health and fitness goals. If you are interested in hearing more about this opportunity and getting on a coach opportunity call this week, like, comment, or message me! I would love to talk about how this can fit into your life! #FFisThankful #changeisgood #changeyourlife

Day 16: Today I am thankful for this sweet face. For this boy…my son. The one who called me mommy first…even if it took awhile! 😜 I had my first parent/teacher conference with his kindergarten teacher today. I’m so proud of how hard he is working in school and what he has accomplished in such a short while. My life sure has been forever changed with this loving little boy in it! 💙 #FFisThankful
Day 17: I am so thankful for the support I get from my online challenge groups! One of my challengers tagged me in this post today and I loved it!! When I trained for my first marathon, I was not a coach and I was not involved with the challenge groups I’m in now. What a world of difference it has made!! So thank you to all the amazing challengers and coaches who have supported me…especially during the past almost 18 weeks of training! You have no idea how much you have helped me!! #FFisThankful
Day 18: Today I’m thankful for all the one-on-one or small group calls I get to do with coaches on my team. I love getting that time with them. This week I have had the privilege to chat with Marissa Joy, Beckie Ritter Lemley, Diana Filo, Stephanie Locklear Albrecht, Jennifer Marshall, and Melissa Tidwell Criscillis…thank you for spending the time with me, lifting me up, and for how hard you work to change the lives around you! #FFisThankful
Day 19: #tbt 4.5 years ago I ran my first marathon in Pittsburgh…I didn’t even run a half marathon before running a full. I might have been a little crazy…but I did it! And this guy right here has always been such a huge supporter! He followed me around Pittsburgh with Jordan and my family, and this weekend he will be following me around Philly with Jordan and Ashlyn and his family! I’m so thankful for having this man…he has supported me in every dream I have had! I love going through life with you! Thank you for still always being my “greatest fan of my life!” ❤ #FFisThankful
Day 20: It’s officially Marathon Weekend!!! Just finished up Yoga Fix! Today I’m thankful for my faith. Ever since I saw the video with Joy Johnson’s story, I have read this verse each day. I am officially READY!!! I just need to get to my destination, hydrate, and carb load! 😜 #FFisThankful #PittsburghgirlrunsPhilly
Day 21: We had such a great day with family and friends today!! Totally feeling the love and support from everyone!! Can’t wait to run Philly in the morning!! ❤ #FFisThankful
Day 22: I DID IT!! I just ran the race of my life!! Thank you for the INCREDIBLE support!! You have no idea how much I appreciate it and how much it helped me!! So much love to you all!! Official time was 3:52:12!! 😊👍#FFisThankful #PittsburghgirlrunsPhilly
Day 23: Today is a special day…it is this AMAZING lady’s birthday!! I am so thankful to have this woman as my mom, a mother-in-law to Robb, and Jordan and Ashlyn’s Mimi! I don’t know what I would do without her!! Thank you for being the BEST mom in the world…truly! I love you and hope you have a wonderful day! #FFisThankful
Day 24: A fresh cut and color and a massage was just what this girl needed today! Today I’m thankful for a little pampering! 💕 #FFisThankful
Day 25: I feel like I have been nonstop since I’ve been home from Philly! It’s easy to get stressed from all the craziness around holidays. I had to take a moment to realize just how blessed and thankful I am to have a home where I can host my whole family for Thanksgiving for the fifth year in a row! I can’t wait to have everyone together tomorrow! Happy Thanksgiving Eve!! #FFisThankful
Day 26: Waking up on this Thanksgiving morning extremely thankful for this life I have been given. Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you enjoy the day with friends and family! ❤ #FFisThankful
Day 27: Not going to lie…today I’m thankful for an afternoon nap! My body was screaming loud and clear that it needed it! Cleaning up after having Thanksgiving will have to wait! 😁 #FFisThankful
Day 28: Shakey! Shakey! Shakey! Totally Ashlyn’s terminology!! They sure do love their Shakeology!! I’m thankful they want to put the healthiest meal of the day in their bodies!! 👍#FFisThankful
Day 29: It’s been a busy past few days with my family! I’m thankful for the time we have had together. What do you think?!? About 13 years stands between these pictures! #FFisThankful
Day 30: Today as I reflect on the past 30 days of thankfulness, I realize how truly blessed I am. It is SO easy to get caught up on negative things going on in your life. I’m thankful I have the ability to focus on the good things in my life…it’s not always easy, but I have worked a lot on myself to help me get to this point. I know I have coaching and Beachbody to thank for encouraging me to do so. ❤ #FFisThankful
