October Challenge: The Busy Girls Solution to Fitness, Nutrition, Fun & Community


Fitness | Nutrition | Support | Community

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

And those four things WORK.. every.single.time.

But unfortunately, we complicate a balanced lifestyle & physical results by looking for quick fixes.

Not in my Gracefully Balanced challenges.

You see.. I've been there. Done that. Got the t-shirt.
But in time, I became FED UP. And finally found my way when I stuck to the basics.

Because of my experience, I take the opportunity each month to create an online environment for women to do the same.

I host accountability groups for community & support.
I pair busy girls with streamlined fitness//nutrition plans.
And I provide them access to an app that tracks it all.


My only requirement?
Use the tools that work.
Show UP daily.
Be stronger than your excuses.
Then encourage someone else once you reach your goals.

..because you WILL reach them.

I'm enrolling ladies now for my October "challenge" & am accepting applications thru this week.

Sick and tired of feeling sick or tired?
Over feeling like your STUCK or settling for less than your best?


Time to join the #GracefullyBalanced community.

This month, you can join us for less than the cost of a daily starbucks & one month of a gym membership & get:

21 days of support
30 servings of superfoods
1 full fitness program
1 corresponding program calendar
1 customizable meal plan

Don't wait to reach out, I'm only coaching 5 new women in October.


Club W: Month One Review



Last month, we became Club W members.

I had seen people in the past post about websites that they could become members of to select unique wines from or even have bottles based on their tastes delivered to them directly, but never took the steps to look into it further.

But one random Friday night about a month ago, Nate saw an ad on Facebook & we finally pulled the trigger.

We filled out a flavor profile.
Checked out the recommended options.
Made our selections.
Put in our information.
Got a new members discount.
And ordered our first box of 4 bottles for $36 after the newbie discount!

#CantBeatIt

So now each month, they'll send us new selections to choose from. We can select as many as we want {free shipping on 4+ bottles} or you can opt out.

Also, as you refer friends, you can potentially earn credit. Icing on the wine cake!

Check out what was in our month one box.

And YES, those bottle came with cards describing the flavor profile of each + pair recommendations.. AND a recipe to whip up with each on!

How COOL is that!? Seriously, you've gotta at least give it a go for a month or so..

GB New Coach Mentorship Academy: Join My Tribe



“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
–Anais Nin

I had no clue what I was doing..
But the risk of failure was WORTH the possibility of living freely..
And that's when I dove into this world of coaching..

I wasn't a fitness guru or nutritionist.
I wasn't at my "goal" body or health status.
I wasn't necessarily miserable.

But I WAS stuck
And I knew I wanted MORE.
So I became a coach.

I longed to alleviate stress.
I desired to be appreciated.
I wanted to travel.
I ached for community.
I craved freedom.

And two years later, I've experienced all of that.

I'm a {nearly} 26 year old entrepreneur who doesn't have it all figured out, but has embraced failing forward.

I have what I need to create & maintain a life by design.

I've joined & begun to create a TRIBE that fills my heart.

I get to use my gifts for ministry & to make a difference.

I get to connect my passions & purpose to this business.

And.. I get to pay all of this FORWARD.

#GracefullyBalanced is my tribe.. and we're welcoming women into our community with open arms.

Women who are talented, yet teachable.
Women who are ready for change.
Women whose dreams are bigger than their fears.

If you KNEW that becoming a coach on our team could be your solution & key to THRIVE.. could you afford to keep passing up the opportunity?

I'm preparing to launch my NEW coach mentorship academy at the end of this month - a place where I empower busy women by connecting them to the tools that can help them create a vehicle to their dreams.

And I'm accepting 5 applicants thru 9/26..

Why.Not.You?

You've got a week to dive in with us!

It CERTAINLY isn't the weather down here in FL making me feel like fall has arrived.. you know, being that it's still 90+ degrees outside.

But something in the air {my air at least} has definitely changed. And well, the pumpkin candles are burning & my autumn wreath is on the front door!

So I might have to put my hair up and wear a bathing suit while I cook/eat this until things finally cool down around, but it's TIME to break out the FALL chili recipes again.

Chili is literally one of my FAVORITE meals to make ahead for prepped meals & even to freeze for later! Am I right, ladies??

Y'all have got to try this simple, healthy chili-type recipe from Skinny Taste!

cooking spray
1.3 lbs 99% lean ground turkey

Digging that Girl in the Mirror


I might not always feel like I'm moving forward physically when I look at the numbers of my body, but I remind myself (1) how far I've come (2) that I'm in this journey for the long haul.

I remember two years ago, absolutely DREADING trying on clothes.

The discouraging feeling of standing in fluorescent lights and mirrors on all sides.

When nothing fit.

But moreso..

When I felt ashamed of letting myself go, but just didn't know how to start back at taking care of myself & actually stick with it.

A lot has changed since then.

I'm not running a race or striving for perfection.

I still slip up with my routine, miss workouts here and there + love cheeseburgers.

But I've learned to give myself grace & continue to simply give my daily best.

And that's meant the world.. For my mind & body.

I'm not necessarily where I want to be. But I'm proud of where I am.

I'm a strong, healthy woman on a continual mission to love myself & care for my temple.

That's what I see in the mirror now. And I dig it👌



Celebrate your progress, honor your pace & NEVER give up!!
