Tropical Oasis Protein Smoothie

😍 Hello Gorgeous πŸ˜

It's friggin hot and steamy in our area of the country today so this frosty treat was a MUST! It's cool, delicious, healthy, and pretty much makes me feel like I'm basking in the sun on some fabulous island 😎🌴🌞 I had shared it on my SnapChat (hhazen) story but got several requests for the recipe so without further ado...

It's sooooo simple! 
☆8 oz water
☆2 scoops Tropical Shakeology
☆10 ice cubes
☆Handful of strawberries

BOOM! πŸ‘ŠπŸ˜†πŸ’•

Want to make a Bet??

Want to make a bet?...better yet, would you bet on your health?

Beachbody is doing something brand new and soo exciting for the month of September & I get to host one of the HEALTH BET CHALLENGE groups!!

Any of my challengers who join me in our streamlined CHALLENGE APP in the month of September & participate in a home workout program + Shakeology is eligible for the HEALTH BET CHALLENGE and an equal share of a cash prize pool!!!

HERE are the rules:

Beachbody is building this prize pool starting with ONE MILLION big ones (ha πŸ€“) and UP TO 3 MILLION, say What?! Anyone who participates in the HEALTH BET CHALLENGE qualifies for their equal share of THAT prize pool. You won't be on Facebook, you'll be on the app - so anyone can do this.

... so how can you enter?

During my September challenge group you must:
☝🏼Commit to a Beachbody home workout
✌🏼Pick your Shakeology superfood smoothie flavor
πŸ‘ŒπŸΌLog your workout on the app a minimum of 3 days a week
✊🏻Log that you drink Shakeology a minimum of 5 days a week
✋🏼 and live happily ever after with a healthy bod πŸ˜‰

Coolest part? You can better your odds. You AND your significant other can join my challenge together - BOTH log your stuff - and BOTH be eligible to share the prize pool. Double win!

Other coolest part?
Only those who FOLLOW THROUGH will get the REWARD!!!!

We all know how this goes... People hear "CASH PRIZE" & they're all like "SIGN ME UP" - but when it comes to actually following through & doing the work - there will only be a percentage of us left standing... am I right!?!! That means the prize pool just got a lot bigger for YOU, PLUS you're reaching your health & wellness goals at the SAME TIME! Boom!

Grab your hubby.
Grab your sister.
WHOEVER - and let's get you set up!!

You can stream your workouts on your phone, do it at home, bring it to the gym, do it in a hotel, get your whole family involved, do an intense workout, commit to low impact or dance cardio, start small, or go big. REALLY no excuses. No matter what your goal is - I can help you find a BOMB program to commit to.

πŸ‘‰πŸΌ If you need some more details or need some help getting set up - leave your email below OR fill this out: https://goo.gl/forms/4EBeVjU4ZMQHEtez1

I've opened up the CHALLENGER RSVP LIST here to allow for as many people as possible - so let's get our friends on board & tackle some healthy and wellness goals BEFORE all the PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES, TURKEYS, and holiday goodies!! Ya feel me?

*if you're already working with a coach - chat with them!
**if I'm your coach & you are just ready to RE-commit, let's do it!

HOW TO: Have Efficient Time Management Skills

Good Morning!! Today I want to talk to you about Time Management! :) If you've been in one of my challenges or the Summer Body Bootcamp, then you know how important this is, however, for those who haven't joined the community, it’s sooo very important and I feel it needs addressed! :) I know this may sound silly, but having efficient time management can make a WORLD of difference in your life, especially when you start a new fitness program, so it fits into your life seamlessly! When you’re organized and efficient you’ll find you generally have MORE time to relax and enjoy with your loved ones AND you’ll feel less stressed. So how on earth do we accomplish that?! I’m going to share a few basic tips:

1) Use a SCHEDULE!! - aka Have a plan for your time. And most importantly - SCHEDULE YOUR WORKOUTS! (Literally, schedule them for every day so you know when you’ll be getting your workout in. Otherwise it’s too easy to let an excuse pop up.)

There are several different options here:
A) List everything in my phone calendar so that you get an alarm or notification.

B) Put the details in a desk calendar (this helps add more detail, brainstorm, and let the creative juices flow). If you're a visual learner, this is wonderful!

C) Keep a dry erase calendar in a common area in the house so everyone can add various events, and know where each will be on certain dates/times.

If you need additional tips for scheduling please contact me. I could probably write an entire book on it LOL!

2) Make and Prioritize your to-do list - this goes along with your schedule BUT you’ll feel much more at ease when you have a list of what needs done (so you won’t feel like you’re forgetting anything) AND you can cross things of said list. Adding to that - focus on one thing at a time (science has proven that multi-tasking is NOT a good work method) and you'll get through that list much quicker!

3) Don't over commit. Period. Believe it or not, it IS okay to say NO when others ask you to do something or help with something. All you do is politely decline. "Thank you so much for thinking of me, but unfortunately I have other obligations at this time." Whether you have something else going on OR it's cutting into family time, it doesn't matter, all they need to know is that you are unavailable. I find that people will generally argue with you if you say you don't want to, or you aren't sure if you have time, but what they won't argue with is your firm schedule. Make sure you stick to your priorities (hint: family and YOURSELF should be one of them).

4) Develop routines. For example: each evening I make a to-do list of things that need to get done the next day. This helps me sleep better since I'm not laying awake thinking of everything that needs done. Each morning I plan out my day so I have a general schedule to get things done. On weekends I meal plan and prep so I can make sure I stay on track for the week ahead. You don't have to do these things, I just want to let you know what helps me. Find your routine!

5) Outsource tasks or delegate - Identify tasks that someone else can do so you can remove them from your plate and free up time and stress. Example: hire someone to clean your house (it's actually pretty inexpensive), give kids chores such as dishes, laundry, or taking out the trash, etc.

6) Last but not least - Leave time for fun and play!! 

My system may not work for you, just like your system may not work for me. The important part is to get organized with your time. Whether that's on your phone, an app, a wall calendar, desk calendar, etc. Find something that works for YOU and your household and implement it! Once you get things organized, you'll likely find that other areas of your life free up, you have less anxiety, and you won't feel like you're running a rat race since you'll be better equipped to prep for each day/week.

Whew!!! When you've read this, I'd love for you to email me and let me know what system you currently use to help manage your time and if this was helpful on how you might be able to improve.


I also wanted to give you a few quick resources on time management:
