What is Health Coaching? New Training starts June 1!

When we first started health coaching with BeachBody, we knew we wanted to better both of our lives financially & help the lives the others.  We are both & have always been OBSESSED with nutrition and staying fit & this seemed like the perfect fit as we had always dreamt of influencing others & helping them feel better about themselves.  We truly love what we do!
If you're interested in learning more about 'What a Health Coach' does and if it could possibly be a good fit for YOU too, please email us at idontgotothegym@gmail.com with the subject 'Coaching Opportunity' and share your WHY.  We have a BRAND NEW training program starting June 1st that is going to be AWESOME!  It is an incredible opportunity to launch your BeachBody business and start off successful right away.

When we started coaching, Jamie had 2 young baby girls and Kristen was trying for babies herself and we both wanted to be there for our families. Daycare was simply not for us!!  When we first jumped in and said 'yes' to coaching, Jamie was laid off from her job as a full-time regional sales manager and is now lucky enough to be in a position financially where she's able to stay home with her girls. Kristen was working full time as a nurse & will go back to work VERY part time (after her maternity leave)! This is the goal we had set for ourselves & we are so excited that we will have the opportunity to watch our kiddies grow up AND contribute financially to our families!  That's the best 'job' in the world grin emoticon

BeachBody is one of the BEST and most rewarding decisions we have ever made and we truly want to work with passionate, motivated women (or men!) that KNOW they were meant for something more and give them the same opportunity we have been given heart emoticon
If you're interested in joining our June 1st training, please email us at idontgotothegym@gmail.com with the subject 'Health Coaching' and share your WHY and we will get you the details!

Pina Colada Chicken with Pineapple Salsa

From our skinny table to yours...

You may have noticed we LOVE topping grilled chicken (or any lean protein source) with fresh homemade salsas!  For one thing it's super easy ;) and another...  it's pretty delicious!  There are so many ways to mix up your homemade salsa and it's just another way to have some fun in the kitchen!  Our coconut chicken topped with pineapple salsa is like a pina colada on your plate and a heck of a LOT less calories ;)

 
We started off by making a super quick pineapple salsa consisting of fresh juicy pineapple, grape tomatoes, avocado, red onion, jalapeno, garlic, lime juice and LOTS of fresh cilantro!  Oh so good!
 
In order to get that rich coconutty flavor we grilled our chicken up in coconut oil (our FAV) and then topped with toasted coconut!
 
 
We topped our grilled coconut chicken with our fresh and juicy pineapple salsa and boy was this tasty!  This dish reminds us of being on an island somewhere exotic... ok that might be a stretch, but it sure was good and will definitely help get you island ready in that bikini of yours! ;)


Serve this over a bed of quinoa and call it a day!  Hope you enjoy this one all :)

Watermelon Basil Balsamic Salad

Happy Memorial Day weekend ALL!  When we're all out BBQing and sipping skinny cocktails poolside, let's make sure to take a moment to remember the real meaning of today.


With that said, this watermelon basil balsamic salad is sure to be something you will love.  And if you're still searching for the perfect dish to bring along today, this is definitely a winner.


This salad is so fresh & sweet and not to mention, so simple to make!  It's simply watermelon, cucumber, tomato, gorgonzola and basil.  We drizzled this with balsamic glaze to finish.


This is perfect as is.  Sweet and refreshing from the watermelon and cucumber perfectly balanced by the creamy, tangy gorgonzola.  If you're feeling fancy & want to turn this into a complete meal, feel free to top with avocado and grilled chicken or shrimp.


Hope you enjoy this one!
