Fit Tips During Halloween- How to Stay on Track!

Why does Halloween have to be so fun, but yet so unhealthy?!?! I love that we can dress up, let loose, and enjoy decorating and going up to random houses to get candy (HAHA), but I feel this holiday really revolves around people shopping for candy and sweets, and unhealthy food for parties!

So if you are one who has health and fitness goals and are really trying to stay on track during Halloween… I have news for you! YOU CAN STILL ROCK YOUR FITNESS!! It will take some commitment from you, along with holding yourself accountable, and resisting temptations! Those temptations will be everywhere, but think about this…. those temporary temptations are only that.. TEMPORARY!! They do not last forever, but will keep coming back if you keep feeding them!

If you can replace those temptations with a healthier alternative, then your body will not crave those sugary, sweet foods and treats!

Deidra Mangus, Halloween Fitness tips, stay healthy over halloween holiday, weight loss during holidays, healthy mom tips, successful beachbody coach UK,  online fitness coach, weight loss journey holidays, healthy pregnancy, eating healthy during halloween, clean eating tips

If you want to stay strong in your house, but know you struggle in the past during holidays, simply do NOT buy the candy for trick or treaters you would eat!! Either buy candy you don’t like, or buy healthy snacks OR school supplies like pencils or erasers for the trick or treaters!

There is so much sugar in candy, or even in sugary drinks.. so just make the choice to drink water!! That will eliminate any extra added calorie drinks that easily makes you feel bloated or puts on weight because we know… sugar turns into fat when you are not metabolizing it!

Working out is a job.. yes it is.. but its easier than carrying unwanted extra weight you have from not working out! Take 30 minutes to take care of yourself! Its the only body you will ever live in! Be nice to your body, love your body, and treat your body with respect! If you can’t make it to a gym, there are PLENTY of options to do at home while the kids are sleeping or playing beside you.. or use them as weights to workout!!

This is not about starving yourself or making yourself feel like you are in food jail, but you can either use the 3 bite rule, or allow yourself 1 piece! Moderation and portion control is always a WIN! Did you know the first and second bite is always the best, but after that, it’s not something you need to have!!  So allow yourself a little, without over doing it and taking steps backward with your goals!

After that one piece of candy or 3 bites, if you are feeling like you want more, simply CHUG water!! Most likely you are not truly hungry, and its more of a boredom feeling or just wanting it because its there.. But most people confuse hunger with dehydration!! Chug water, and that usually helps people get fuller! If your belly is growling and it is true hunger, then grab a piece of fruit or veggie!!

Last but not least, REMEMBER your goals!!! They are there because you care about your health and your body!! So do not let those small temporary cravings and temptations get the best of you!! If you can stay strong, you will be steps closer to that BIG goal!!!

YOU GOT THIS!! Tell yourself, “I can and I WILL do this!” “I am STRONG”, “I have WILLPOWER!”, and “I am committed!”

When Life Gives You Lemons….

So you know the quote, “When life gives you lemons, you turn it into lemonade.” Well, I have a new quote that I am running with today!!! “When life gives you lemons, squeeze it, mix it with 6 ounces of distilled water and drink it twice a day.” -Jethro Kloss

Deidra Penrose Mangus, clean eating tips, stay at home mom healthy tips, kid friendly health tips, weight loss journey, lemon benefits, when life gives you lemons, military fitness, nutrition tips, healthy new mom tips, top beachbody coach PA, elite beachbody coach PA, online fitness coach, summer weight loss, military wife, nurse and fitness

This is about keeping up with your health and incorporating easy foods that can be used with many health benefits!! So lets talk LEMONS today since they are yellow and it’s so sunny today! 🙂

Lemons have so many health benefits and one thing I was surprised to hear is that it actually can:

  • Give you as much energy as coffee, so replacing your coffee in the morning will help you improve your energy in a healthier way!
  • It will also prevent you from aging (which coffee causes you to age).
  • Is full of potassium, which helps your heart health.
  • Act as a diuretic and help increase the rate of urination of the body.
  • Aids in digestion and helps flush our unwanted materials.
  • Clears skin. With the vitamin C in lemons, it will help decrease wrinkles and blemishes.

Once the lemons are freshly squeezed into the juicer, there you have it…. Lemon Ice-cubes!! Perfect to go in your water to give it some extra flavor!! Plus, the kids love it too!!

If you are looking to continue your fitness journey and want more healthy mom tips, easy family recipes and ideas to cook for the family, and daily motivation and support, please fill out my application below for a spot in my next 30 day online fitness challenge!

Fitness Coach Opportunity- Become a succesful stay at home/work from home mama!

Deidra Penrose, Top Beachbody Coach PA, online fitness coach, Successful Beachbody coach, new mom fitness, healthy mom tips, Busy mom and nurse, Mom of boys fitness, Clean eating, work from home mom, extra income work from home, beachbody challenge group, fitness inspiration mom, fitness motivation mom, Figure competitor, bikini competitor

As a former ER nurse, I never though I would ever change careers.  I loved what I did and I worked hard to get to where I was in life. But something was missing as I had my boys. I was missing little moments and memories with them that I was never getting back.

I knew I was the only person that would be able to change that though. So as I started working on my fitness journey, I realized how in love with the regimen that was given to me with Beachbody. I got everything I needed to reach my fitness goals and live a healthy lifestyle while showing my kids what a healthy lifestyle looks like. I was exercising just 30 minutes a day, eating clean, and drinking Shakeology which is a superfood dense shake that gave me all the nutrients that I cannot get from my typical every day meals.  I also had support and daily motivation in the challenge groups/support groups that I was added to by having a Beachbody coach.

As I was getting results I never got even working out at the gym, I decided this is something I can do to help others without having to go to school and leave my kids for more education, but something I can successfully do at home while still working as a nurse to continue motivating myself along my own fitness journey!

As I started sharing my fitness journey  and what I was doing as a Beachbody coach on Facebook, I realized there were so many other moms and nurses like me, who want this opportunity to find themselves, get into the best shape, and stay home with their kids while having the availability to build an income for their family!

Over the past 3.5 years, I have been able to build a team and business of my own with others who wanted this lifestyle and freedom that allowed me to retire from my nursing career and bringing home more than triple my nursing yearly income, but more exciting… being able to be home and be there for my kids and creating new memories!! Watching my son starting kindergarten and getting him on and off the bus is more rewarding then anything!!

Now I’m excited to share with YOU this opportunity!

If you love maintaining a healthy lifestyle or just are wanting to start your fitness journey, along with wanting to build finical freedom for you and your family, I am excited to share with you a little bit about our team and give you information to see if this is something that would fit you and your lifestyle as a Beachbody Coach!

Please watch videos 1-7 and when you are finished, please fill out the application below to get in contact with me so we can chat more about getting you started on this journey and in our New Coach Internship Training held online!

Please know you do not have to live near me. This is a career you do online, anywhere in the US and Canada! You can travel and work, work in your PJ’s or workout clothes, and create your own business hours!

VIDEO #1.

WELCOME!!

Hey everyone and welcome to our informational “What is Beachbody Coaching” group!! Let’s make this lots of fun and interactive and be sure to ask questions along the way so we can make sure you get all the information you need to feel confident about your decision you decide to make after watching our videos and talking with us!!

Please know, there are 7 total videos, so be sure you look at all so you get the most of this group and have a good understanding of what we do so you can make the best decision for you and your future as a coach!

Our first video is created by myself (Deidra Penrose) and Im just going to go ahead and give you a little introduction and let you know what Beachbody coaching even is!!!

Have you heard about those home fitness programs Insanity, P90X, Turbo Fire, or 21 Day Fix or Shakeology, our health shake?? THAT’S US!!! Those are some of the programs and our #1 game changer (Shakeology) we use ourselves and have others incorporate into their regimen to help with reaching their health and fitness goals!!

So sit back, relax, enjoy, and again, feel free to ask questions and post below the video you are inquiring about at any time!!

VIDEO #2.

CHALLENGE GROUPS and HELPING OTHERS REACH THEIR FITNESS GOALS!

Now we are going to go ahead and get into our Challenge groups!!! This is how we keep ourselves and others accountable for reaching their health and fitness goals!! This is where we work 1:1 with people, give them motivation, support, tips, and get to know each other and build relationships along the way of helping them along their journey!!

Take a listen to coach Allison Sinisi on what Challenge Groups are and how they are a huge part of our success as fitness coaches!

VIDEO #3.

WHY we use Social Media As a New Beachbody Coach 

Now that you heard about Challenge groups, it’s time to find out HOW we grow our business and expand our market.. how do we talk to more people and help everyone, everywhere!!
I know many people may say, I live in a small town, or I don’t know many people, or I have a lot of other coaches or other distributors that are taking over.

Guess what?!? I have great news for you!! Social media gives you the opportunity to expand yourself outside your area, meet new people, and talk to as many people as you want!!

What is great about this also, is again, EVERYONE is on at least 1 social media.. Whether it is Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Google, Periscope, etc… our mission is NOT to use all of them, but to use 1 or 2 and get really really good so you stand out to other average people that are doing what you are going to be doing!!!

VIDEO #4.

Working FULL TIME and adding Beachbody as a secondary part time

So now you know how we use social media to build our business, but you may be concerned about time. I totally get it! That was one of my biggest fears before I started as a coach. “Do you have to coach full-time to be successful?” is a question I receive often from people who are on the fence about becoming a Coach. People assume that you need to be a full-time coach and that this needs to consume your life in order to see any sort of result from it. This opportunity is completely the opposite of that. It’s up to you what you wish to invest in this, whether you want to invest a few hours before bed, a couple hours throughout your day, an hour in the morning or twenty minutes on your lunch break. The ball is in your court and the decision is yours. Whatever you decide, you can still be successful. 

Michael works full time as an engineer and father of 2 boys who are busy in sports throughout the year! He manages his work, home life, kids, and still is able to balance his career with Beachbody Coaching! Being busy just means you need some time management skills and prioritization skills, which we help with in our trainings!

BUSY PEOPLE GET STUFF DONE!! Its all on how bad you want something and if your willing to work to get to the long term reward and freedom at the end!!

VIDEO #5.

How to earn income as a Beachbody Coach

Now it’s time to get talking about the potential for income and financial freedom!

Each person’s income will vary, depending on their own effort and work put into coaching! But we do have coaches that have earned up to a 6 figure income in 1 year of being consistent as a coach! Again, the success depends on YOU, but the sky’s the limit! You do not have anyone telling you how much you can make… the more people you help, the more you grow and the more successful you will become!

What’s great about this company, is you are not only given commission when people purchase a fitness program, supplements, or Shakeology from you, but they also reward you with bonuses when you sign up coaches (working or discount), and for certain rank advances as you are growing your team!

Along with watching this video where I explain more about the compensation plan, I want to share this image just as an example of what can potentially come out of staying passionate and consistent as a coach helping others with their fitness journey! I started coaching while working full time hours as an ER nurse, taking masters classes, and raising a newborn and 1 year old. As I continued growing myself, my business grew also over the past couple years!

Your results are limitless!!! Its up to you!! You want to grow and build more income, you simply help more people!!  🙂

Myths about Beachbody Coaching
FROM DIAMOND COACH REGAN LONG:

OMGOSH…you’re thinking of becoming a BEACHBODY COACH?!! SAY WHAT???

Please take 2 minutes to read the following:
So….I’m going to COMBAT some of the top, most common apprehensions people have about taking this leap!! Here we go…

* This is a pyramid scheme or scam: NOPE (and ya know, if you thought that…it’s okay..you’re just misinformed) My husband thought this, too, and told me I was wasting my time and money and this would never work….2 months after I got into this, he was apologizing he ever doubted me…or Beachbody!

* You need to quit your job to do this and to get a business off the ground: NOPE. I was teaching 2nd grade full time, writing, doing photography, taking grad classes, had 3 children under the age of 6 at home, a husband…and I was 7 months pregnant with our 4th baby. TOTALLY possible to get a business lifted off the ground while having a busy schedule 😉

* You need to do this to MAKE a business: NOPE. Some do it simply to cover the cost of their Shakeology that they can’t go without. Others use it as a “hobby” who LOVE Beachbody’s products and use the extra income to pay off school loans, make their car payments, use it to pay their mortgage or rent, pay off some credit cards, or maybe even some “fun” money or to put into their savings. Others, like myself, want this as a BUSINESS. In less than 1 year, I was able to leave my teaching job and at age 31, 11 months into the business, I’ve officially RETIRED from teaching for good. And let me tell you, my first 2 months didn’t go as I planned. People were NOT knocking my door down but my coach reassured me that to keep posting and sharing what I was doing. By my 3rd month, things started happening, my consistency was paying off and was reaching and inspiring many. By month 5, I made what I did as a teacher each month, by month 10 that doubled. And now almost a year into it, that has tripled. Every coach’s paycheck is not a “given”. What you put into it is what you get out of it.

*You don’t have the money for this to get started: Let me tell you right now…if ANYONE gets this, please know it’s me. Despite working tons of jobs at once, due to many unpaid leaves for my babies, we were scraping…and I mean BARELY getting by (some months…okay, a LOT of months, going under..it was a plain scary time and didn’t know if we had a way OUT). When I bought my first challenge pack almost a year ago (mine was $140), I had talked with my coach for MONTHS about this…back and forth if I could afford it (which technically I couldn’t), questioned would this work, would I annoy people with my posts…and then I prayed about it for quite some time…I knew in my heart that this is everything I needed in my life. I needed accountability to become the best version of myself; I’m 31 years old, 4 babies in 6 years and I’m in the best shape of my life. I needed, desperately needed the income and wanted to be home with my children. I needed to do something that I believed in and felt like I was making a difference in people’s lives and becoming an inspiration. And I knew if anyone was “bothered” or “annoyed” by my posts, that they needed my prayers and weren’t in the right place or happy with themselves.

I took this leap of faith in becoming a Coach and you know what, a lot of my friends and family doubted this and said I was crazy. I can say almost every single person has come around and apologized and they now say they can’t imagine how different my life would be if I hadn’t gone against the grain and DONE THIS.
This business is about health…it’s about happiness…it’s about changing LIVES. We inspire. We motivate and encourage others. We are acknowledged by doctors in all fields of all ages who are in agreement of how significant a change and impact our products DO have on a person’s health and life. We transform people physically but I gotta tell you, my favorite transformations are the emotional ones…the confidence levels. Personally, INSANITY pulled me out of a post partum depression. It was a total game changer for me, in all aspects of my life, this company!
Can this be a hobby, part-time job on the side that can make you some good pocket cash while getting/staying fit and healthy? ABSOLUTELY.

Can this be a career that can completely change what you do everyday and your family’s financial status. ABSOLUTELY.
Please use this week to throw ALL questions and concerns at us. God has blessed me with SO much in my life…but hands down, THIS was one of the best decisions He has led my heart to do!!
I now feel compelled to personally help as many as I can to be able to achieve what I already have. And for me, I have just scraped the surface. As soon as I hit one goal in this business, I’m ready to CRUSH another.

Hope this helps answer some questions!

VIDEO #7.

Staying on Track over the Holiday Weekend!

How in the heck do you stay on track with your nutrition, especially over the holidays?!?! It’s 4th of July weekend and I know people are about partying, food, and alcohol! But… it doesn’t necessarily have to be unhealthy!! You can still have fun and be clean about your choices of food and drinks!!

I’m leaving for vacation tonight once kids are in bed and I am prepping some food now to take to South Carolina for some get togethers with our team and family!! I want to show you that it’s still possible to travel, go to parties, and be healthy all at the same time!! Sounds like a lot of work huh? Lol

For the road- 

It’s easy to say “Oh, I don’t have anything with me, lets stop at a fast food restaurant.” Ummm or NOT!! It’s called, plan and prepare my friends!! It’s easier to plan and have it all with you than to stop, waste time, money, and your body!! Treat your body as a temple, its the only place to live!!

  • String Cheese
  • Fresh blackberries and raspberries

  • Shakeology
  • Water— TONS of it!! You can always stop to pee if you need to!

food travel

Whats really cool, is you don’t have to use the excuse that you don’t want to take chicken because you don’t have a fridge… USE A COOLER with ice!! That simple guys!!! How bad do you want it?!?!

Some foods we will have-

Turn your Passion For Fitness into a Successful Business

 

Deidra Penrose, work from home fitness, top fitness coach PA, online fitness coach, health and fitness coach, clean eating, turbo fire, insanity, Shakeology, healthy nurse, nurse and fitness, healthy new mom, extra income, successful fitness coach, fitness motivation, job opportunity fitness

Use your excuse for having kids to help you push for your goals!

How many of you actually can say you love EVERYTHING about your current career with whatever it is you do?  Do you pick your hours of when to clock in, pick what days you work, do you take off for vacation whenever you need, do you pick who you work with, work in workout clothes, and do you get to work from home (to be with your kids)? These are some of the reasons that my old career didn’t fill my cup.. I know most people are probably like… Uhhh Deidra, that’s called a JOB.. Get over it!! lol.. BUTTTTT, hear me out! The problem is although so many are unhappy having to go to their job, they settle for less, because they think thats their only option or they wouldn’t ever have an opportunity to have a career where they have so much freedom!

Well, I can tell you this, YOU my friend, are in total control of your career choice, your freedom, and your success!!

My nursing career did make me happy.. The part of my helping others and interacting with my patients and working on my skills. Yes, it made me very happy. But when I sat down and wrote down the PRO’s and CON’s (which I did) one day, I realized there is something else out there that could fulfill my life more. Yes, I guess you can say I was being a little selfish. But you know what?? If I didn’t do what made me happy, then it would affect my attitude, my family’s happiness, and my life! So why not take advantage of the opportunities that come your way?!

My opportunity came when I was working on my fitness journey after having my 2nd baby!! I was in the ER working full time hours, in school for my masters classes to work as a certified school nurse, and just trying to find something that would be a better fit for my family! Well, I think God knew how much I loved fitness and helping others live a healthy lifestyle, so this was placed in my hands!! I was asked to join a company called Beachbody to continue my fitness journey and stay accountable, help others, but be able to do it all from home and making my own hours! When I realized there were a good bit of successful people in this company, I thought, WHY NOT ME?!?

As I continued my journey with Beachbody and doing the programs such as Insanity (high impact cardio and plyo training), Turbo Fire (dancing cardio), and 21 Day Fix (our top program with a variety of exercise, and focused around nutrition and portion control), eating clean and drinking Shakeology every day, the results I was getting were amazing!! I lost 40 pounds and over 30 inches!! Say what?!?! It made me feel happy, confident, and gave me an urge to give this to someone else! I started sharing my journey, and before I knew it, others were relating to me as a mom, nurse, and fitness lover!

After 1 year of working 1 hour a day on my new career, I was able to match my full-time nursing income just by working from home! It wasn’t until 2 years into my fitness career with coaching that I retired completely from nursing because I was growing such a large team, that if I didn’t quit, one, I was not able to give the other my fullest potential! Today, I am earning my yearly salary as a full-time Nurse, in just 2 months with my fitness income!! Even more, I am home with my kids… my biggest reason for doing what I am doing!

Love the life you live and live the life you love!

We have the freedom, we all working on a healthy life-style, there is no boss telling me when to clock in, telling me when I can take off, and Im in control of my success!! If I want to build my income, I simply help more people!

Just a few of our team on our Success Club cruise spending quality time!

I surround myself around positive and uplifting people… we have trainings together and have the ability to travel around the world! We recently went on a Cruise to the Bahamas and Jamaica, and just last week, I hosted a training event to help other fellow coaches in the area! We have a blast, we love what we do, and I am looking for more people who want this!

This is what we do! It still seems so surreal that this is my JOB that I wake up to every morning! I get up, keep myself accountable with working out (and include my kids), I help others online (you don’t have to know a ton of people, you have social media that is taught to help you grow a successful business and help as many people as you want!), do some training to mentor my coaches and help them build a solid foundation themselves, and we have fun!

I am looking to mentor 10 new women who are SERIOUS about making a life change! If you are interested in having the ability to grow a fitness business of your own and work out of your own home, please fill out the application below for a spot in my next 30 day training all held online!

*You do not need a background in this or any pre-requisites to start this journey! You just need a passion for helping others and fitness, desire to succeed, and a WHY to keep you going!  Can’t wait to work with you!!

Baked Butternut Squash

I am one of those people who likes to mix up their veggies and not have just plain cooked or raw veggies with my meals. The more I can get creative, the easier I stay on track! So yesterday, I did my usual weekly meal prep (which looked awesome by the way), and did a little playing with my butternut squash!

Spring Cleaning with Your Fitness Journey!

Its so easy to let go of those health and fitness goals when the winter is here. We are easily covered up by those big sweaters and sweatpants and no one sees us in bathing suits at the beach.  But now that spring is here and summer is right around the corner, those bathing suits are coming out! Do you want to have to be covered up by shorts and pants or do you want to feel confident and sexy in your 2 piece or cute little summer outfits?

I don’t know about you, but I’m game for feeling good about myself! Nothing is sexier than a confident woman! When you do not like the way you look, your face will show it, and everyone (including your kids) will sense that insecurity!

It’s time to set some goals, make an action plan, and start taking ACTION!!

  • When I say set goals, I mean think of your long-term goals and short-term.  Write them down on paper and put a date on it! When you do this, you are giving your goals a sense of urgency! Even better, when you set your goals, along with putting it on paper, put in on your phone or somewhere you will always see it! The more you see it, the more you think about it. The more you think about it, the more likely you will stay accountable!
  • When making an action plan, I mean schedule out what you will do to reach those fitness goals! For me, I have a schedule of my workouts, I make a meal plan, and put everything in stone of what I WILL be doing to reach my goals… or should I say on paper?!
  • Taking action is sometimes the hardest to do! Like people say, it’s easier said than done! BUT, when you do the first 2 steps, your more likely to stick to your plan and make it happen!  How do I take action?
  1. I set an alarm and wake up at 6 am every morning… well almost!! Im human, not perfect lol! But I do get an A for effort!!
  2. I meal prep every Sunday so I am all set for success!! I take about 3 hours total on Sundays after church to get my groceries, make my meal plan on www.picmonkey.com, and start cooking away!! I love listening to personal growth and development every single day also to help me stay motivated and excited about my fitness journey! Some podcasts I listen to are Chalene Johnson “The Chalene Show” and MWF Motivation! Seriously, before you knock it, go give it a shot! It will change your life!!
  3. Positive self-talk!! Yes, you heard me!! Its unfortunately so normal to talk ourselves down, and talk ourselves out of doing things that we want to accomplish! Why I do my personal development and growth is because it has helped me completely change my mindset! It helps me remember to give myself positive talk and celebrate all my small successes along the way! Each morning, I will look in the mirror and tell myself what I AM… I am confident, I am happy, I am successful, I WILL conquer today.. and I will tell myself what I will achieve!! It may sound crazy, but your results will come from what you tell yourself! If you talk yourself down, you will become negative.. if you talk yourself up, you will find yourself being successful!!

So lets start NOW!! Now no better time will come! If you wait for the perfect time, you will be waiting a very long time!!

I am excited to start my new 60 day challenge with Hammer and Chisel where I will be incorporating cardio, weight training, and clean eating! I am a HUGE gym fan, so this home fitness program is a perfect way for me to have that similar atmosphere and workout with amazing results!! With my clean eating, you will notice in my meal plan below for this week, I drink Shakeology every day religiously and I absolutely love the nutrition benefits I receive! Its one thing to get a protein shake in.. it’s another to have a drink full of dense superfood nutrition! People do not realize how our crops are grown with our soil that is not dense and full of nutrients as it was 30 years ago. I understand some people like “whole foods”, but Shakeology was specifically made for those who DO care about how their veggies and crops are grown as they are picked from areas all over the world where the soil is best for growing crops!
