If you asked 100 Plexus ambassadors why they decided to start taking the products, you might get 100 variations of the same answer - they wanted something to change. Whether it was to lose a few pounds, break the cycle of unhealthy eating habits, have more energy to play with their kids, or belong to something special, we all started because we found a better way. (💥If you are one of my Plexus peeps, comment why you started!💥) I started not for weight loss but I just felt tired... all. the. time. I was in a funk and had no idea how I would ever get out of it. I didn't care what I ate and was fine with sugar and caffeine highs that eventually crashed. I thought, "I'm skinny so I'm pretty healthy." Once I decided to make a change and try Plexus, I can't believe how I chose to live my life all those years! There IS a better way! Now I continue to take these products because I want to be around for my wife and kids for as long as I can. The products have helped heal me from the inside-out. They have given me energy to work out (that's crazy) and I don't crash anymore.
If you feel stuck, message me and ASK ME ANYTHING. If I don't know the answer right away, I'll find it for you. I want to help you. (PLUS, I'm still running my birthday week incentives for anyone who wants to make that change and get their life back)
This caught my eye this morning and has been on my mind since I share it with my challengers.
You see each one builds on another.
Self-esteem👉🏼believing in you👉🏼believing you deserve what you desire in life.
I STRUGGLED all through school and college. I had to work my ass off to get decent grades! Learning just didn't come easy for me, making me believe I just didn't have what it takes. My self-esteem was in the toilet on and off a large portion of my life. Still to this day it can be a struggle. I have to work hard at making the changes I need to for myself and learn new ways. I'm not saying it's easy, but it's worth it.
You want to know what changes that for me!?!?! Taking care of myself first! Yep, believing that I deserve to do something each day for myself that makes me feel stronger, sexier, more fulfilled, and confident! 🥗eating right and getting my super foods daily 💪🏻working out 5-7 times a week 🙏📕 praying and reading daily to fill my soul with positive thoughts and encouragement
Health and fitness isn't just the physical results it's as much in your head as the other. When you feel like 💩 you think like poop 💩. That's what made all the difference. The healthier lifestyle for me that my family needs so I can be there for them.
If any part of this post has resonated with you and you are ready for a change in your life let's chat.
I will be signing up 5 individuals for a one on one two week start up before joining the rest of my amazing tribe of challengers.

Genuine people, thoughtfulness, welcoming... 💖
These are just a few words that come to my mind from this weekend. Honestly, not sure what I thought it would be like - but people listen - knowing and speaking out what goals you want in life - IT'S POWERFUL 💥💥
I want more for my family, I want more for me, I want more for you!! This passion and drive - it's so real. 💕💕 This coaching opportunity is such a blessing - the community, the self-belief, strength for mind and body and the ability to share this with others. I never knew anything like this even existed. I had no experience going into this, no idea what I was about to jump into - but I am jumping in with both feet! And I'm learning more everyday! 🌟
If you want to be apart of something greater, if you are missing that fire that lights you up, a community that supports and encourages you every damn day - we need to talk! All you need is a commitment to want to be better - both body and mind. Leave the rest to us and we will teach you all you need to know! 💖
We have only one life - and I'm sure as hell not gonna look back and wonder what I did or didn't do or wish I could have done more. I'm gonna live this life to my fullest potential! Nothing will stop me!! Who wants to do this with me??🙋🏻 Comment below ⬇️ "ME!" If you want to learn about it or message me - I'd love to share with you about how this opportunity has rocked my life!!!
Feel like you're juggling too many balls, and your own health has been put on the back burner?! Taking care of yourself isn't selfish, it's necessary!! It has made me a better mom AND wife!
Allowing myself to take 30 minutes a day, even if it includes one or both of my kids 😜, is better for all of us!
Eating healthy has given me energy and has leveled out my moods. I'm not having sugar crashes, or getting HANGRY anymore!
It's not too late to join my September group! We get started tomorrow! You'll get access to 30 minute workouts, portion controlled eating, and a delicious daily shake! Plus me as your coach and biggest fan! 🙋🏻 Shoot me a message if you have questions or want to get set up!
In this day and age - everyone is throwing so many contradicting views at you about what "healthy" looks like and what it means to "eat well". I know for a long time I used to get super overwhelmed with all the information out there - and there was never any breakdown or one on one resources that helped tailor things for MY needs.
But the good news is - I CAN DO THAT FOR YOU!! :) Someone took the time to break it all down for me and supply me with the resources I need to now break things down and help YOU with your needs. Your wants, and your breakdowns. If you have goals or are chasing a feeling - I can help you get there!! That's what started my journey! And all I want to do is help you get there <3 Drop an emoji down below or shoot me a message if you're interested in more information - or joining my FREE NUTRITION GROUP :) With recipes, shopping lists, meal prep tips and tricks and even fun prizes for those that participate! :) 🌟☀️🌟☀️🌟 #coachhannah416#makingnutritioneasy#accountabilitypartner#helpingyoucrushyourgoals#whatsstoppingyou#makeachange#changeyourlife#onestepisallittakes#letyourlightshinebright
Never felt like I had a purpose.
Never felt like I had a gift.
Never felt like I could inspire anyone.
Feeling fulfilled & achieving success looks different to everyone but for me, it's learning how you can FILL THE GAPS in your heart that need to be filled.
And for me.. it was self love & learning how I can take care of my temple.
All I knew was failure due to my epilepsy & medication killing my body//cognitive skills.
Little did I know God uses failure to SHAPE us, help us discover our gifts & uses that testimony to speak VOLUMES into other lives.
I am not perfect but Coaching has given me the ability to take my past & turn it into something GOOD.
Without Coaching.. I would have never:
1. Overcame that eating disorder that was consuming my life
2. Found my people & built the friendships I've built
3. Achieved self love & realized my WORTH within
4. Had the courage to wait on the man God has for me.
Every day I am thankful.
Every day I am thankful that I can encourage YOU, but action is required from you.. now the question is, will you feel the fear & take the step anyway?
What if you took the step & overcome that eating disorder?
What if you took the step & surrounded yourself with people that only encouraged you to be better than where you are today?
What if you took the step & achieved self love?
What if you took the step & used it as an outlet?
What if.. -- Curious HOW it works?
Ready to MAKE the change?
No obligations. ☝🏽
Questions are always welcome, but I do not want you to let FEAR stop you from taking any action. #feelthefearanddoitanyway
Tonight as I sit outside by myself, it is so peaceful and I started to think back on my journey. 💕
❤️What if I never sign up for my daily shake to help curb my junk food habit? ❤️What if I didn't push play on my first ever workout program? I had no belief I could complete it. ❤️What if I never signed up as a coach? I wasn't sure I would be able to help anyone. ❤️What if I never met the amazing women who are part of my team and accountability groups? .
I can tell you my life would be so much different if I had not made that decision 4 years ago to make it happen! .
❤️Junk food habit is under control...I'll still have a treat but it's under control! ❤️I have completed multiple workout programs and in the best shape of my life! I have more self confidence than ever before! I am now a strong, healthy role model for our kids!
❤️I have helped multiple women, moms, dads, college students start on their own fitness journey! ❤️I have met lifelong friends that I'm so fortunate to have in my life! .
If you are in a similar situation that I was in...have young kids, inactive lifestyle, junk food and take out are staples in your diet, low self esteem and no confidence you can do a workout program...I get it and I can help!!

Perspective and mindset helps how we look at situations, challenges and victories. Today, whatever is before you, choose to be happy. Look at the glass as half full and remember it can always be topped up. You have the power to have a remarkable day!
I sure love this and agree 100%. Especially today, we have gotten a wonderful 1.80" for a break from harvest even though we only had two days of running the kiddos we're getting cabin fever. It's always nice to enjoy a wonderful day of family relaxing ❤️ it does NOT happen often around here. Prepping for my week: to do lists, I'm obsessed with lists and get a high off of crossing everything off and seeing my accomplishments on paper! Resetting your mind gives you a fresh slate to begin your week with nothing but happiness! Continuing to get up early and get my workouts and PD in is at the top of my goals and to do list this week, it makes my whole day run smoother and gives me better energies ❤️ This week make a list of things you'd like to get done and set goals for your week, small weekly goals are easier to accomplish than 6month or yearly goals. "push yourself because no one is going to do it for you!" #goals#sundayvibes#mondaymotivation#sahm#momlife#farmerswife#todolist#makeachange#morningpeople#personaldevelopment#homeworkout#homegym#happywifehappylife
First off let me say how hard it was to keep still to take this picture 😂 my arms are shotttt! Ran a mile because I was lazy this morning and didn't do it 🤷🏻♀️ then did some bench press at different percents of my max. Laying down over head tricep extension, some old fashioned bicep curls and over head tricep extension on the pulleys. Also found my front squat max. 😋 #makeachange#buildingarms#pushedmyself#keepup
"I should eat healthier." "I could try to get help to stay on track." "I would get to the gym if I had more time." Shoulda. Woulda. Coulda.
2.5 years ago, that was me. 18 months after having my first child I set foot in the gym ONCE. Went for ONE run. I was out of shape. I wasn't eating well. I did not feel like my athletic self. I missed playing soccer. I felt like I had no time to get it done.
I started doing 30 min workouts from home and it changed my life. I no longer had to stress about getting to the gym or finding childcare. I gained back time in my day because I was so much more productive after getting moving in the morning. I was able to stay active throughout my entire 2nd pregnancy because of my involvement with my challenge groups and wanting to lead them by example. I was able to shave off those post partum pounds within a few months because I had the right tools and the right support to do so. It was so much EASIER the 2nd time around.
I was no longer that shoulda, woulda, coulda person. I was the person that DID. I showed up. I got results. And showed others that they could do the same.
You can do the same as well. I know how you're feeling because I was there, but no longer need to feel that shoulda, woulda, coulda feeling. There is another way.
My next monthly Challenge Group is starting up on October 2nd and you will have ALL the tools you could possibly need to be successful. All YOU need to show up with is that positive attitude and the decision that you will become that person who says, "I DID." Who is ready to change that mindset? Comment below with I'm ready and I will reach out with more details on how you can be a part of this amazing tribe of inspiring women!
Make a conscious effort to surround yourself with positive, nourishing, & uplifting people who believe in you, encourage you to go after your dreams, & applaud your victories.
How lucky am I to have a team FULL of these people?! Love em lots!! 💙💙💙
People forget that flag and national anthem has nothing to do for or with people of color (except oppression)...There were still slaves in 1814 when the song was written by someone that owned slaves. This person took pleasure in the Afrikan/Black slaughter. And lest we forget what the Native Americans had to feel about this shit. No, I won't stand for such an insult, such a disgrace. I will not disrespect my ancestors as I take their place. This song isn't for me to praise. No, my fist I shall raise for my people, my ancestors, brothers, & sisters who's blood was & still sheds for the justification that society depicts us which is just what that flag stands for. You tell me, “get over it.” but I'm not stopping you from praising it, am I? No, you do you but I won't stand for it. *Silent E.* ✊🏽Apparently, Colin was born in ‘87…Shit, that explains everything…Haterz can kick, flick, skip, slip over rocks as far as we’re concerned. We're not the puppet type… #TakeAKnee#TakeAStance#MakeAChange#ifwestandfornothingwellfallforanything#OnceWeStandUpTheGameIsOVER#ByePuppets 👋🏽✌🏽
I took the time to actually meal plan this week instead of flying by the seat of my pants! My meal plan does include chocolate (energy bites), wine on Friday and a little leeway for a cheat meal this week because this is all about a lifestyle ;moderation and being healthy while still enjoying the things we love!! My next accountability group starts tomorrow which I am super pumped about!.. just other women like myself supporting and motivating each other to do their best because we know this isn't easy but it's much easier when you don't have to do it alone!! Ready for change, and need that accountability! I'm here! 🙋🏻 Shoot me a message or comment below " let's do this" and I'll give you all the details on the group! 👊🏼🤸🏻♂️
It started with a little inkling and I knew I needed a shift. I had had a really stressful spring and summer. I was using a crutch to calm me down- that glass of wine at the end of the day. It’s not much, but sometimes it was more than one. And sometimes more than just one or two nights a week.
Somewhere along the way regular drinking in my age demographic became cool, like smoking for teenagers. All the sudden there were Facebook groups for “Moms Who Drink” and post after post on Instagram of the perfect drink.
Like many of us, I had a glass of wine at the end of a long day, like a reward. There had to be a better way to deal with stress.
Slowly but surely my energy decreased and along with it, my ability to sleep through the night (and I can’t blame my kids for that!). Something needed to shift.
I made a commitment to myself to a 30 day cellular cleanse.
In only a few short days I felt lighter, brighter and happier. I found I could deal with challenges much better. I’m well past the 30 day mark and I don’t feel like I want to change a thing, I feel that great.
Here’s what you can expect if you decide to make the shift:
✅ Increased E N E R G Y (naps are a thing of the past)
✅ Healthy ageing (people mistake my age by 5 to even 10 years)
✅ Improved sleep (and it’s super easy to wake in the morning)
✅ Developing more muscle tone (who likes strong pipes? ME!) ✅ Better FOCUS (I can string full sentences together! Even with kids pawing at me!)
✅ Weight loss and no more bloat (I’ve dropped 14 lbs since this summer) ⭐️ I am HAPPY. I AM HAPPY! And that’s the best reason of all. What’s it worth to you to make a shift and do things differently?
Would you foster ?
Can you give a loving home to a child who needs a home.
I was the boy who came from a broken home, who saw his mother lose herself to drugs. that was the moment my life came crashing down, when I heard the news that no boy wanted to hear."Your going into a home" I never forget that first night of crying myself to sleep, remembering my mums tears as she said goodbye.
I was 8 years old with my brother who was 4 years old. In a strange place we called called are home but it didn't feel like home.
The first 2 homes were temporary, I felt like an outsider, not part of a family, until we got a longterm foster parent who treated us as if we were her own. The love I felt was real and I also had Respite Carers who showed me unconditional love, for the first time we felt normality and love in a safe home. They will never know what they did for me and my brother.
I was a shy boy that kept a lot of things locked inside the teachers never understood me and mistaken me for the child that gets easily distracted not knowing I was hurting and worrying inside.
I used to pray for my mum day and night, worrying if my Mum would make it through the night,
As a foster child trust is everything, we get afraid of getting close just Incase you leave, but take your time and give unconditional love We have so much love to give, just give us time, we will never forget what you do for us.
So if you have a loving home & your thinking of fostering, it will be the best thing you ever do.
Children are pure and you will save a life that just might save the world
This motto always speaks to me no matter how many times I hear it. We as Christians have become so caught up in the flashiness of religion that we have forgotten verses like Mark 12: 29-31 ""The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”” (NIV)
Guys, being a Christian isn't complicated! Stop throwing in all the extra crap and then go about trying to justify it. I'm praying that we all go through a major change in heart and go back to learning to love like God loves.

Sunday night rolls around and can feel like a drag or a dream. Granted, exhaustion sets in after a busy weekend but excitement takes over for what is to come this week. For me, I love Mondays because it means a new week, a fresh start and a new day to make it great.

If so, make it happen. If you are curious about making a change in health, wellness, a job, make it happen! Comment below with “health”, “wellness”, “exercise”, “career” and I will reach out to you!
What's an oil?!
Ok, so oils have been around for THOUSANDS of years! Literally, since the beginning.
When plants are rubbed together, pressed, an oil comes out from it and has different effects depending on where it's sourced from.
Now, you have to be careful where you are getting them from. Stores and companies are selling them all over claiming 100% real. Check the ingredients and see what has been added.
I only use Young Living because it has been through a series of tests and this process is the Seed to Seal process.
Put yourself on the top of your to-do list every single day and the rest will fall into place.
I've spent most of my Sunday working on the content for my upcoming Self Care Challenge group and I am so excited to share all of my self care tips with you! The group will run from October 2-8 in a closed Facebook group so make sure you RSVP today so I can add you!
From DIY face masks and sugar scrubs to decadent sweet treats and cocktails to yoga and meditation, I'll be sharing an entire list of new resources to help you practice self care every day!
I'm creating a special Relax & Recharge Spotify playlist to share with the group! What are some of your favorite songs that help you unwind after a long day?
