Spring Into Health With Your Fitness Journey

Spring is JUST around the corner and I know it has been so easy to hide our body in our clothes from the winter… I don’t know about you, but I am all in for feeling healthy and looking healthy in my sun dresses, tank top and shorts, and bikinis!!

I am so excited that as an online fitness coach, I have the ability to mentor people from all over the US and Canada on their fitness journey by running my private groups in a closed group to help give EVERYTHING needed to reach those BIG fitness goals!!

So many people try on their own and are not successful with their fitness journey for a few reasons…

  1. They lack the nutrition- People cut out carbs, calories, and starve themselves for a quick fix… little do they know, that the weight loss (if it comes off) is only temporary and when you start eating again (because you cant live like that), you gain it back and sometimes more than you lost!
  2. They lack the workout aspect- Nutrition is key, but people do not realize the impact of working out actually does!! You cannot just eat right and expect to get that nice tone body! Exercising increases your metabolism and will help improve your energy, your confidence, and how you feel inside and out!!
  3. They lack support and accountability- So many do not have support… they are on this journey alone which is easy to lose motivation when you struggle.

Maybe these reasons you have failed in your past are relatable. I can say I have failed in my fitness journey so many times!! But I am also proof that you can move past your failures and let your failures be a learning experience to be successful!

WHAT IS THE SPRING INTO HEALTH BET???

As a Beachbody coach, I have been able to learn and experiment the best ways to get the weight off and keep the weight off…. to build muscle, to learn better eating habits, and live a healthy lifestyle all the way around! By doing this, I incorporate exercise, nutrition and portion control, with support groups and accountability.

Beachbody has done a wonderful job at helping us give ourselves and our clients the very best! So they have recently released an amazing opportunity that I dove into quickly and has been a HUGE help with my journey! Now I get to share with you!!

ALL-ACCESS ON DEMAND – You know all those Beachbody home fitness programs that are out?? P90X, Country Heat, Insanity, 21 Day Fix and Fix Extreme, 22 Minute Hard Corps, Hammer & Chisel…. the list goes on and on… over $6,000 worth of fitness programs actually! Well, you now have the ability to access EVERY program we have INCLUDING any new release that we have in the 12 months that you sign up!  

With the All-access, you have the ability to stream your workouts from your phone, computer, and smart TV (and fire stick/Chrome-cast)… so for those who have kids and they want to watch TV, you can still get your workout done!! And for those who travel a lot… no need to take those disks everywhere or worry about access to a workout, because its right at your finger tips!!

With the All-Access on demand, you will also receive the portion control containers to help you with your nutrition! Starving ourselves is NO longer an option!! But measuring and portioning our food based for each food group is an option and will help you get the most results! Each container is color coded for each food group and you will get a guide for what your body needs to reach your individual goals.

Lastly, with the Spring into Health Bet Challenge, you have the opportunity to incorporate a superfood health shake that will change your life!! I have been using Shakeology into my regimen for the past 4.5 years when I first got serious with my fitness journey and I will say, it helped me overcome my ice cream obsession and became my healthy alternative…. Shakeology helped me with getting the nutrients I wasn’t getting from my every day foods.. I started while breastfeeding and I knew my baby was taking away the nutrients I had, so this was my way of replacing what I was losing! I feel like I have more energy, less bloating, and less cravings for bad food simply because I am fueling my body with the right food!

I am so excited to kick off my next private group that will give you EVERYTHING you need to reach those goals!! It’s time to feel good and confident inside and out!! If you are ready to commit and interested in a spot in my support/challenge group, please fill out the application below and I will contact you ASAP!

Getting rid of night-time cravings!

Ok so I need to be honest here… living a healthy lifestyle is NOT always easy for me! My biggest struggles come when I’m emotional, stressed, and going through struggles.. yup, that has been me over the past week. I have fallen off big time, but thank goodness there is something called a new day and a new week to start fresh!!  So I’m back at it, but I still want to share with you some ways that I do overcome my struggles with eating, especially at NIGHT!

#1. The first thing you can do is figure out WHAT is triggering your food cravings.

Food triggers, Deidra Penrose, fitness challenge, rice cake, green tea, suppress hunger, clean eating tips, late night cravings, evening snacks, healthy lifestyle, healthy mom tips, weight loss journey, soy free chocolate chips, unsweetened coconut, natural peanut butter, top beachbody coach PA, online health and fitness coach, figure competitor

#2. Is there a certain TIME OF DAY that you are triggered more? Example for me is night time when I’m not as busy.

#3. How can you GET RID of those cravings other than completely avoiding what triggers?

Examples:

  • Go workout (if it doesn’t keep you up all night)
  • Eat a healthy alternative
  • Go brush your teeth
  • Chew gum
  • Talk to a friend/family member to keep busy
  • Read a good book/listen to a good audio

So now lets go more in depth about healthy alternatives.  I am sorry, but I feel that I need something in the evening and as long as it is healthy, I am right on track with my goals and where I want to be.  One option I do very often is drinking Green Tea and have a rice cake!

Now, I do not always make my rice cakes like this, but I do get creative when I am really in need of a snack!

Deidra Penrose, fitness challenge, rice cake, green tea, suppress hunger, clean eating tips, late night cravings, evening snacks, healthy lifestyle, healthy mom tips, weight loss journey, soy free chocolate chips, unsweetened coconut, natural peanut butter, top beachbody coach PA, online health and fitness coach, figure competitor

Rice Cake 

  • 1 small layer of natural PB
  • light cool whip (thin layer)
  • 1 tbsp soy free, nut free, and dairy free chocolate chips (from organic section in local grocery store)
  • unsweetened coconut to top it off (sprinkle)

If you can work hard for 21 days, your body will not physically need what it was craving.. in fact, you saw I just wrote WAS craving… Your body will NOT need the junk because it will be out of your system and it just takes 21 days to create new habits!! Let go of the cravings, and move forward with your goals!

A big part of my success comes from having support and extra motivation in my fitness challenge groups that I hold online (in a closed group on Facebook). We do daily motivation, tips, recipes, and help with meal planning! In our group, we incorporate a fitness program of your choice from Beachbody, along with adding Shakeology into our regimen to help us get the proper nutrition.

If you are interested in taking your fitness to the next level, please fill out the application below for a spot in my 30 day fitness challenge.

*You do not have to be in great shape or at your goal.. This is to help you create a lifestyle that you can live off of forever. To help you tone, lose weight, or even build muscle.

Beachbody Super Saturday Training- Chambersburg, PA

Deidra Penrose, Elite Beachbody coach, super saturday beachbody, successful beachbody coach PA, Beachbody coaching, beachbody coach training, health and fitness coach, online fitness coach, fitness journey, fitness motivation tips,  CIZE workout, fitness accountability, fitness journey, weight loss journey, clean eating, work from home mom, healthy mom and nurse, new mom fitness, figure competitor

2.5 years ago, I went to my very first Super Saturday training in Pittsburgh, PA and that was the start of something amazing with my business!! I went 2 months as a coach not doing much.. I wanted to help others with their fitness journey, but I guess you can say I was not dedicated and did not have a big enough WHY to want to be successful.  

That Super Saturday, I remember sitting in the audience just admiring the coaches up on stage because of their success, but also just being strong enough to get out of their comfort zone and speak! I am terrified of public speaking… well I guess you can say “was” terrified, because things have definitely changed over the past 2.5 yrs!! 

As I have been working on my own fitness journey, and having a passion to help others (thats the nurse in me), I have truly found my calling in life! Loving to share my own journey with fitness and clean eating, my figure competing, being a role model for my kids to grow up and learn the healthy lifestyle, and inspiring others to make the change I have made because it has made such a big impact in my life (physically and with financial freedom) and whats best of all… doing it ALL from home so I can be home with my boys!!

Over the past almost 3 years, I have built over a 6 figure income, along with helping other coaches on my team become successful enough to be able to work from home and gain financial success as well! 

It has been such a blessing and we now have been able to grow a team big enough to have our own training! As I went to Pittsburgh for all my training events, I have NOW been able to start my OWN training here in Chambersburg!

This past weekend was our very first Super Saturday!! Pretty exciting huh?!?! Not only am I getting to spend more quality time with my team and other teams around us from Team beachbody, but I am totally stepping out of my comfort zone and overcoming my fear of public speaking!! 

Remember that time at the beginning I said about sitting in the audience just amazed by the coaches speaking thinking I could never be that successful coach?? Well, now I am not only speaking, but I am a host!!! GAH!! It was so surreal and such an incredible experience so now I am so excited to share with you all how it went!!!

We had some kids here to just to hang while moms were working hard 🙂

Some of these coaches drove all the way from Philly!!! Such an amazing journey.. I wouldn’t know these ladies if it weren’t for Beachbody!! 
Erin and I with baby Kate! 
Of course we had to have our Shakeology bar!

Erin Traill was our first Success Story- Transformation Success Story.  She shared all her struggles from post baby depression, hypothyroidism, and feeling helpless in her own body, to losing 75 pounds, gaining confidence, self esteem, and being a mom again for her kids all through the journey she has had with Beachbody! 
This is a part of her story that she shared… So inspiring!!

2 Star Diamond coach Lauren Penrose was our Coach Success Story and shared how she went from post part depression and anxiety, and fear of public speaking, to overcoming these challenges and has become a successful coach building an amazing team of her own while working full time as a Physician Assistant! 
Erin Traill did training on Shakeology and how it benefits not just our health, but our business!

Diamond coach Alisha Smith did training on Challenge groups and how they are our bread and butter to our success as coaches to help our challengers and change lives!!

Lauren and baby Ethan! Us mommas can have our babes at work! Thats what is so great about this job!!

Another one of our speakers came all the way from Kansas to speak on not only his transformation, helping others physically, but also helping others financially and getting out of debt! Something that many of us have and feel there is no way out!! He is a follower of Christ and definitely has impacted many lives!!

Alisha was our CIZE instructor for Super Saturday and our live workout! 

Momma and Aubrey got some moves!! This is a perfect example of a good role model!

Seriously, we had so much fun dancing!!

Post workout with Kelly and her team from Philly!! Seriously, LOVE THEM!!!

As I said, this journey has changed my life in so many ways!! My own fitness success, freedom, and friendships made along the way!! This leap of faith was scary for me since it was not something I even thought I had time for, and having NO experience with social media and literally just being afraid of the unknown.. I could have given every reason (or excuse) not to start, but it was the best leap of faith I have EVER taken!!!

If you are someone who loves helping others, wants to impact other people’s lives, and experience this amazing success, YOUR opportunity is sitting right in front of you! YES, this is YOUR sign!! 

If you are hard working, committed, and are not afraid of a challenge, lets do this!! Please fill out the application below to get a spot in my next coach basics training to get you the best training to grow your own business to success!
