How I push through the hard days.

I used to just crumble on hard days. I would put the pillow over my head and hope for a better tomorrow. Until I realized nothing would change unless I changed it, and that includes my mindset.
Truth is, we are the only ones that can change our life, our day, our minute. No one can or will do it for us. So I learned to argue with myself.

I acknowledge my feelings and emotions. I write them down.
I have cramps.
My head hurts.
I am tired.

Then I write down the solution.

I have cramps, but I will feel better after I stretch and move my body.
My head hurts, but I will feel better after I hydrate myself and fuel my body with a healthy meal.
I am tired, but once I have some green tea/ or coffee/ or my morning energy drink I will start waking up and feeling better.

I take  deep breath and say: " I am so thankful for another day to get better . " and 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.... I get up and start moving. I got that trick from the 5 second rule by Mel Robbins. It works.

I have a rule that I am not allowed to do ANYTHING until I get my workout in. I HAVE to do it first thing. Some days I KILL that workout, other days I barely crawl across the finish line. I just have to show up and do my best THAT DAY, one move at a time.

30 minutes later I have finished what will probably be the hardest thing I face that day. I walk through the day lighter, proud, and confident.

That right there is my equation for being my own hero. Give it a shot. If you need help finding a workout program, I have got ya covered, just hit me up! momwhatsfordinner@yahoo.com

Celebrating

It is #WomanCrushWednesday and I am crushing hard on some of the amazing souls I got to sweat with for the past 6 weeks. We are all different shapes and sizes all with different goals.

Tas Scott-Gass is on the quest for abs with me and she shed a TON of inches and pounds and one day closer to the toned tummy she craves.

 Erika Jade Curtis and Amanda Desiree Orth were looking to shed some pounds and get stronger and they both achieved it and are still going strong.


 Christina Lee Gamble came to me when she hit a plateau and over the past 6 weeks she lost 20 pounds and is still going strong!
 Reigna Fall who wanted to reclaim her pre-baby weight, she just had her son 7 months ago guys and she is stronger, and healthier than she was pre-pregnancy!
 Morissa Mercaldo wanted to lose some tummy softness and gain abs and she did just that.

These are just a few of my daily familiar faces that help me push through to my goals just as much as I help them. The accountability, friendship and encouragement are 100% what gets me through the hard days, and propels me further on the great days.
Whatever your obstacle...whatever your goal is, I can help get you there! Come sweat it out with me and these ladies each day in our online community and see what it does for you! It changed our lives...Why Not You???

It is the perfect time to get started. Try it out for a week before you make it a permanent lifestyle with Clean Week! We start October 7th, but registration closes October 6th with limited spaces. EMAIL me and lets get ya signed up!

Make it for a week before you make it a lifestyle.

Happy Tuesday!

I have taken a long break from daily blogging/writing. Mostly because I write best in solitude. My life changed so much during my cancer recovery, I am such a different person, I rarely have solitude anymore. So the result has been ... less writing. I do love to write and express myself, so I am going to attempt to getting back into daily journaling here, even if it is just a quote or something to ponder.At least Monday - Friday, a girls gotta have breaks and time unlpugged. 🙂

Oh and I plan to use emoji's. I don't care if it isn't "proper" to do so on a blog. Hi, my name is Christi and I am far from proper. I am a freebird. I do my best to be true to my spirit. I strive to be a better me today than I was yesterday, and to give to others what I wish to have. I believe we all hold the power within us to do and be whatever we want. We also hold the chains that keep us from all we want.

This is my daily journey about breaking my chains and living a life by design.

Today I got to try out a new program that is coming out. I am so excited about it. You can see some of my clips below and give it a shot yourself. Get free access HERE .

What makes me so excited is that it is the perfect place to start. Often people don't believe they can do it. Or maybe they don't know where to start. Or they join a gym and never see results because no one is guiding them. This will put an end to it. They can get connected through me and my accountability group, they can get a week long nutrition plan for them to START with, and have guided exercises for 30 minutes a day they can do from anywhere as long as there is wifi. No excuses now!

If you are ready to give it a shot MESSAGE ME or connect with me via the event page HERE.


On another note I want to chat you up about my issue with people not believing in themselves.
What is up with that?
I am seriously FLOORED with what I hear every day from people. It is like their spirit light is turned off and they are on automatic pilot. I want to SCREAM: "Wake up!". What is it that drives you? Why are you here? It is NOT to pay bills and die. It is NOT to spend the majority of your life showing up to work for someone else's dreams!!! Time and time again I watch people go to school to be a yoga teacher because it was their dream, only to find them a year later hating life because they spend all their time driving from studio to studio barely making ends meet... and their love for yoga starts to fizzle. I see the same in all professions.

Why not side hustle? Why not pursue your OWN company while you do the grunt work for someone else. It will never cease to amaze me that people will give 8 hours of their life to someone else but can't show up for their own dreams.

Look, I have a blueprint for how to succeed in online coaching. If you are in the health and fitness industry at all... I personally think it is a shame and a waste to not be profiting off your own brand on the side. I have a blueprint for how to do it. So if you want it, you best be contacting me TODAY!

My transformation can lead to your transformation


Since it is #ThrowbackThursday and I have a few hundred new followers I thought it was time to share with you all my starting point.
On the left is 4 years ago. I was 65 pounds heavier, looked a LOT older, was very unhappy, uncomfortable, and 6 weeks prior had a fe#Cancer tumors removed from my body. I was riddled with guilt and shame and surrounded by toxic "friends". I made a decision. I was worth fighting for. I told my family and everyone who would listen that I was never looking back. I would reclaim my health and happiness. So my daughter Taylor Ann Moufaddal forced me to stand there while she took my "before" picture. I refused at first but she said I would be so happy later when I looked back and could see how far I have come, and she was SO RIGHT!
I lost friends along the way, but they were not the kind of people that were going to help encourage and love me. I can pretty much guarantee they are all still right where they were or further down the path of destruction. I knew in order to change my life, I had to change both who I hung around, and my daily habits. So set forth and found a solution I could stick with. A permanent lifestyle change.
So here I am today on the right. Modeling for an active wear company. 65 pounds lighter, looking a LOT younger even though I am 4 years older, I am SO comfortable in my own skin, #CancerFree , and helping thousands overcome the same issues I used to have. The people that surround me lift me up with positivity, love and SUPPORT !
My entire life changed with ONE DECISION.
If you are ready to make that decision, I am here to help you every step of the way. I have a community of loving supportive people ready to embrace you. #DontWait all you have to do is decide and we can #StartTODAY

I have an amazing FREE group for you!

You CAN'T out run your fork!!!

Over the past 3 years I have had the privilege of helping over 1,000 people get healthy and change their life. The people who succeed EVERY TIME are the ones who are combating their health with nutrition in addition to our programs.

You CAN'T out run your fork!!!
You also CAN'T get the nutrition your body needs anymore without supplementing. So I wanted to make sure you were aware of the amazing products we have to support you in your journey.

Shakeology - NO it is NOT just a protein shake. If you are taking another protein shake you are missing out on 69 superfoods, leafy greens, probiotics, prebiotics, adaptagens, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

Performance line - The only line recommended by Iron Man. Created by the BEST Harvard Scientists/Nutritionists from Plant based sources whenever possible. Highest quality available on the market... and the results are OUTSTANDING. I SWEAR by this line. I NEVER miss out on it and would never take anything else. Safe for this Cancer Survivor!

Daily Sunshine - Finally a CERTIFIED organic, non-gmo, VEGAN daily supplement for KIDS!!! Get all their veggies, vitamins and minerals down in one yummy shake they beg for. Super awesome supplement for Vegans looking for post workout fuel too! Also recommended for senior citizens.

For those that don't know my story... I started out at the bottom. Sad, lonely, overweight and sick with cancer.

On the left:
Sad, broken, overweight, depressed, anxious, sick, so disappointed with myself.

Now... on the right:
Happy, strong, at goal weight, no anxiety, sleep great, and so so so PROUD of myself.

When you know better you do better!
I say it all the time because I was the poster child of what you should NOT be putting in your body before.

I still get super yummy drinks, snacks, meals, and desserts...
I just learned how to make them healthy.
So that is what I do. I teach people to rethink their food. We start with your faves and I teach you how to sub out the bad ingredients for good ones that taste the same, or in most cases even better!

80% of our results are in our NUTRITION! Not the programs!!! Once I figured out that I needed to work on fueling my body with the BEST... I got serious results by eating myself healthy.


These are me.
These are real.
These results came from Shakeology, The performance line, and our Supergreens.
Not just from sweating for 30 minutes.

These are my legs. Once I got HONEST with myself and realized I was in my way ... I needed to get the nutrients my body needed... the weight fell off, even though I was eating more than I ever have.

Health and fitness is a journey. It has highs and lows. Sometimes we fall down and need help getting back on track. I learned a long time ago that without accountability, I fall more often, and struggle a lot harder. Those who think they can do it alone tend to stop and start over and over because no one is there to help remind them of their why. We all need love and encouragement to stay the course.

It's like a fire. You can have a pile of logs burning hot,🔥🔥🔥 remove one of those flaming logs from the pile and it burns out while the others keep flaming, adding more and more logs to the fire makes it grow hotter and hotter...bigger and bigger.

Don't be the lone log. Get connected. I have an amazing group ready to help along with my one on one Coaching.
We start THIS Monday August 21st.
Only thing required to join is you do the meal plan too. 

Shakeology is on the meal plan.
The 
performance line is on the meal plan.
I have a shopping list for ya. I have the recipes for ya...
When is the last time you actually did a program. Doing a program is NOT just pushing play. A program includes the meal plan. Every program on BOD has a meal plan.

Let me help you finally get real results that last. You are the only one in your way!
I am here to help!!!
There is no charge to work with me. My services are free. I only require you be on ONE of our nutritional supplements because 100% of my clients get results.
Let's do this!

Call, write, or text.

Start by starting

Three years ago I had just been given my 6 week Post Operation clearance to start light yoga. I had never done yoga before, but I was desperate to get my life back. My cancer in my uterus had made me grow to look 6 months pregnant. I had put on 65 pounds. I was so unhappy too. I was ready to change my life. 

So I walked down to this local yoga studio I had walked by every day and decided to go in and give it a shot. My first class was an accidental level 2 vinyasa and I about died. But there was a girl in the front who stood on her head and it really intrigued me. So I went home and decided I would one day stand on my head like her. It only took a couple weeks of practice and I was inverting, but it wasn't pretty.

I knew I needed to get stronger and to shed the weight that #Cancer had put on my body. So I did. I committed to working out 30 minutes along with diving into my yoga practice.

I tell you this because SO MANY people come to me and say they "wish" they could get healthy. They "wish" they could do headstands on paddle boards, they "wish" they were strong like me.

EVERYONE has it in them, you just have to START and align yourself with like minded people that can HELP you. This journey is not something that should be done alone. Why? Because you are your worst enemy. If you don't have a posse in your corner speaking life into you and killing your excuses, you will fail over and over again. The ones who try to do it alone are usually the ones that are so used to quitting, they are scared to commit to a group because they KNOW they will be held accountable.

If you are READY to change your life and START...


My next challenge group STARTS prepping July 17th. You will need to get your kit to be ready. 
What will be required?
Push play on your workout daily.
Follow the meal plan.
Check in with the group.
Encourage others going through the program.
Have fun, meet friends, crush your goals. 

This program is called the Shift Shop and it changed my life. You can read all about that HERE

I am SO excited to announce I am now a part of the elite #GlideTribe with Glide SUP!



Some days you open your email and you get the BEST news. 

That is what happened to me a couple weeks ago when GLIDE contacted me and let me know they chose me as a new member of their ELITE tribe! 



I may have done a little dance. 

Why?

Because in my opinion, if you are going to get an SUP for yoga... Glide is the best. 

Why do I think that? Well here are my reasons.

#1 They are Made in the USA. Look I like to support my country when I can, just like I support my state, and city. Buying local keeps the economy booming. The vast majority of paddle board companies manufacture overseas, and even their employees have never seen a board made from start to finish... but not Glide. Every member of the Glide team has been to their factory and has hands on knowledge of how the boards are made and the process that is involved. I love to be a part of companies like that. 


#2 They are Ultra Durable. This matters. Boards and parts are not cheap. Glide’s patent-pending GSS coating, is a VOC free polymer that has been developed to create an extremely durable coating that withstands damage caused by rocks, debris, abuse, paddle strikes, and drops. Ultra durable Glide boards means less frequent purchases and less strain on your business or personal budget. Also longer board life means less boards filling up our landfills, or being dumped in the ocean. (Can you believe people do that?!?!).

#3 They are Eco-Friendly. No other American SUP company recycles their EPS scrap as efficiently as Glide. Also Glide refuses to use low cost, highly toxic Polyester resins, and have taken adherence to green manufacturing principles to an unprecedented level in SUP manufacturing. Glide is proud to use exclusively 100% non-toxic Entropy Bio resins, reducing potential harm to our employees, the environment, and over overall carbon footprint.

#4 They are BEAUTIFUL. The boards are just stunning and speak for themselves.  I have this Lotus Board... 

Isn't she beautiful? You can see their other designs here

So if you are like me and #ShopWithPurpose - meaning you want your $$ to go toward good, rather than continuing on with the blind big box ways.... then definitely check out GLIDE.

Use code christisilbaugh10 at checkout for 10% off your board!
