Are you feeling stuck? Read how I went from being stuck in a job I hate to finding purpose and living with joy!

Find out how I went from being stuck in a job I hate to finding purpose and passion in my life through Beachbody Coaching.

As I write this post, I remember so clearly how on Sunday nights, I would sit at home with my husband and complain that I had to go to work the next day. I would dread Monday mornings. There were weekends when I would try to come up with an excuse to call in “sick” just so I didn’t have to go to work.

Here I was, letting a job ruin my weekends! It was robbing me of freedom and happiness. But I thought that’s just what we all did. We graduate from university and then go find a job in the real world. You go to work so you can provide for your family. If you don’t like it, oh well…the bills still need to be paid, right?! And that’s exactly what I did. I got stuck in a job just so we could pay the bills.

Now, don’t get me wrong – we NEED to work in order to the pay the bills. BUTTTTT….I truly believe now that you should find something that makes you feel alive, makes you have purpose, and gives you fulfillment.

There really is such a thing as having a career that meets your passion. You CAN actually have a job that you look forward to each Monday morning. I know that being an entrepreneur doesn’t work for everyone. There are lots of people out there who have an awesome job that they love. Take my husband for example, he loves his job. I asked him last week if he dreads Monday mornings, and his answer was, ‘No way!’

But there are so many people out there who just go to work to collect their pay cheque, put in their time, and hope that retirement comes sooner rather than later. Is that you? Are you reading this thinking, there has to be more? I’m here to tell you..there IS MORE!!!

I never would have thought I could run a successful business from home helping people with their health and fitness. I’m just a mom who rarely has her shit together. I’m like any other mom trying to balance family, chores, cooking, cleaning, and getting in shape! I love being a mom. I love my boys and my husband, they bring me so much joy everyday. But I knew deep down that I had a greater purpose. I wanted the freedom and flexibility to live our lives to the fullest and not have to rely on just my husband’s pay cheque to get us through. I wanted to know that I was making a difference not only in my family’s life, but the lives of others too!!

When the Beachbody Coaching opportunity came along, I saw the potential and I jumped right in! I wasn’t going to wait for someone to tell me what to do, I was going to figure it out and just do it.

I took charge of my life and it’s paying off!! I now have the flexibility and the freedom to be with my family but to also do something from home that I absolutely love. I no longer dread Monday mornings, I actually look forward to them. I no longer do the countdown to Friday because I’m having so much fun doing what I do.

Life is meant to be lived, not just going through the motions. I didn’t want to spend my days building someone else’s dream – I wanted to build MY dream!

You aren’t chained to your life unless you let it be that way. I truly believe you need to find your passion and tap into that somehow. It may not be Beachbody Coaching, it might be some other business that inspires you. Just start working on your passion one step at a time.

Healthy Blueberry Crisp

by Jen on August 22, 2016

A blueberry crisp made with clean eating ingredients, not that you can tell though!

Healthy Blueberry Crisp. Made with clean eating ingredients, but you wouldn't know it!

One of my favorite desserts growing up as a kid was Blueberry Crisp.

Our family called it Blueberry Grunt! I don’t know why? Maybe you grunt each time you take a bite because it’s so good?!

Anyway, typical blueberry crisp recipes call for a lot of sugar! Like, a lot!

I wanted to make one with a lot less sugar. And I wanted it to have a good crust on it. There’s nothing worse than a “healthy” crisp that has about 3 oats on top. Gimme some more oats!!!

But I also wanted to make it less runny. I hate when I make a crisp and the whole bottom of the pan is liquid.

So I was thinking, what could I add that would soak up the liquid of the fruit.

And then it dawned on me…chia seeds!!!

Chia seeds are awesome at soaking up liquid. Plus, they provide essential omega-3 fats that our bodies need. And believe me, you don’t even notice that they are in this blueberry crisp!

We were all in love with this Healthy Blueberry Crisp! It was amazing.

I prefer mine naked…without ice cream. But for the kids and hubby, I served theirs with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

So freakin’ good!
