Launch your UK Fit Biz

Coaching, Finances, Freedom, passion, Self-Love

AHHHHH!!!! We’re launching in the UK October 18-23, 2017!!

This has been spinning around my head all week! How surreal is this! I am SO excited to be apart of this incredible launch and be a #ukfoundingcoach !! (Happy Dance)

For anyone new to this ‘launch your fit biz’ stuff here’s a quick recap:

Since working for TBB I’ve:

  • Retired from teaching (yes, I’m in my early 20s and I’ve retired from the career I went to school to pursue!)
  • I’ve earned myself a trip to Costa Rica with several other teammates (WHAAATTT!?)
  • I’ve gotten in the best shape of my life! Check it out here!
  • I’ve truly found my people…. you know the ones who just GET YOU, no fakeness, no niceties, just real; sweatyselfies, and messy hair – don’t – care kinda love
  • I’ve repaid more of my student loan then I’ve been able to while teaching!
  • I’ve helped over 80 men and women create SUSTAINABLE, totally DOABLE and life changing habits that have allowed them to reconnect with themselves and empower them to live where they appreciate and are confident in their body!
  • AND I’ve started saving money for the ‘Caravan Home’ fund I’ve always dreamed of!

So needless to say, this gig is pretty freaking awesome!

So here’s the deal!

I’m looking for men and women who are:

  • looking to add some financial freedom into their lives by working from home… or ANYWHERE with WiFi access!
  • tired of having to put on the corporate face when they’d much rather walk around in their slippers, oversized sweaters and messy hair don’t care hanging with their kiddos or furbabies
  • individuals who believe in the power of team work and are ready to help inspire, motivate and empower other men and women
  • Passionate and driven to live life by their own design
  • Proud and excited to be a part of a community that is truly about changing the world and empowering people to reconnect with their bodies and find their inner strength

Basically, I’m looking for some inspired people who are ready to break free of the normal Monday-Friday work grind and start living a life that ignites their passion and drives them to want to celebrate and pay it forward to others!

Why is next week so big?

NEXT week, October 18-23 2017, 6 of my fellow coaching teammates will be flying from North America to join me here in the UK.

Why?

Because we’re hosting TWO Launch your Fit Biz workshops and photoshoots to help our new UK coach family launch their Team Beach Body fitness and wellness business!

We know how daunting it can be to start a business, especially if you’re no expert – fear not! That’s why we’re taking the time to meet with you, connect with you, and prep you so you’re ready to be a forerunner in this MASSIVE business opportunity.

Plus! The business is all about SHARING your own fitness and nutrition journey, so it doesn’t require a special skill set other than to be passionate, motivated, and eager to see some change (both physically, mentally, and financially!!)

So here’s the low down:

1. Go all in and sign up at the launch- there’s no risk anyway with a 30 day money back guarantee and no contract!
The worst that could happen is that you get incredibly fit, try something new that you might love, and make some new friends from across the pond!
** Coach enrollment is 160 pounds and includes 30 days of Shakeology superfood smoothie, 1 year of All Access Beachbody On Demand workout library, portion control color coded containers and system.

–> COMMENT COACH if interested in more info!
2. Sign up as a coach (above) AND attend the UK founding coach workshop and photoshoot our team is offering for FREE in Birmingham on the 19th or London on the 22nd: lovelearnthrive.com/ukfitbiz

–> COMMENT COACHLND or COACHBIRM if you’re interested in more info!
3. Meet up with the US/Canadian team coming for the launch in Birmingham or London but just to hear more about coaching in person and do a group workout. lovelearnthrive.com/ukfitbiz

–> COMMENT INTERESTED if you’re keen to hear more and find out when and where we’re meeting.
4. Join our online Coach Life Apprenticeship where you can basically test coaching out for 7 days. Our team will give you 7 days of social media training and challenges so you can see what coaches really do to build a business. busygirlssociety.com/coachlife

–> COMMENT APPRENTICE to find out more info and be added to the private group!

You have nothing to lose or risk by doing any of these options- but EVERYTHING to gain. I am SO excited for you to unlock yourself from the Monday-Friday grind and truly start living a life that fuels your passions!

#whypower

Finances, Freedom, mindfulness, passion, Self-Love

While doing some research on the various ways D and I can both declutter our lives, and start making some changes that will allow us to reach our financial goals, I’ve come to realise that this change is very similar to that of a health or lifestyle change.

Every month I host online health and fitness challenges that focus on fitness and nutrition. During prep week I discuss the importance of identifying your #whypower which essentially translates into:

Why do you want to create a healthier lifestyle?
What will you gain from being more physically fit?
More nutritionally satisfied?
More educated on your body and how it should feel when it works at it’s optimum level?

By identifying your why, making a change becomes more manageable because you know what the long term goal is. So challengers write this down, and post it somewhere they will see it everyday or can call upon it when they’re feeling less motivated.

The same idea is throughout the many blogs and sites I’ve explored on minimalism and living frugally.

We must know WHY we are doing something, making a change, if we want it to be sustainable. By writing it down, it becomes something we can refer back to when things get tough or less desireable.

What’s my why?

I am de-cluttering my life to no longer be weighed down by materialistic possessions. I seek adventure, discovery, and freedom and know that my life in a van will not be able to happen if I’m weighed down by all of this stuff.

I want to truly uncover what means the most to me, and what truly gives me joy – not what I bought because I was under the impression that it would bring me joy.

By de-cluttering I’m giving myself permission to be more selective and take my time with purchases. Permission to be choosy with what I buy to make sure it truly fits my purpose is a great feeling of ownership and pride.

De-cluttering will also mean less frivolous spending on products that dissolve quickly into the mass of STUFF. Hence stopping the rise in clutter, but also in slowing my bank from draining.

I want to focus on long term happiness versus the fleeting moment of excitement at the till.

What’s your #whypower?

Disconnect to Reconnect

Freedom, health, mindfulness, passion, Self-Love

This summer I took David to one of my favourite spots in the world -Manitoulin Island. What started off as a dreary, bleak day with promise of nothing but rain turned into a day of great views, sunshine, adventure, conversation… the list goes on.

How much I love the outdoors

I was reminded on this particular day the importance of stepping outside and breathing in the fresh air.

It’s not that I haven’t done this lately, it’s just that I don’t think I’ve taken the opportunity to appreciate all that it does for me.

Being outside, in the wide open spaces makes me feel FREE

It’s often where my thoughts are the most grandiose, creative, and focused on problem-solving

I feel consumed by the beauty, strength and intricacies of the world rather than fearful of all the bad we’re told by the news.

and most importantly for me,

It’s often where I find calm of mind – which for someone who is often plagued with racing thoughts and too many What Ifs to count, having a still mind is magic.

 

So if you haven’t gone out in a while, or if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed be it by work, or life, or decisions that are up and coming, take the time to go out. Surround yourself by greenery, listen to the birds, TOUCH the soil with your toes.

Disconnect so you can reconnect with your self.

You’ll be surprised by the answers you already have to your problems, you just need to be able to listen.

 

 

 

What makes for a good work environment

Boss Lady, Freedom, mindfulness, passion, Self-Love

Since returning to Canada I’ve been subjected to live out the true “young entrepreneur” lifestyle of jumping from coffee shop to coffee shop in search of the one that inspires the greatest amount of creativity and productivity.

All coffee shops are not made equal

Like anything else, some have perks that others do not, while those others have positives the previous lacks…. Following me?

For example:

Salute Coffee Shop, in Sudbury is great because it has free, fruit infused water, a great atmosphere, organic and freshly made food, and consistent internet

Unfortunately, in my opinion based on the day I was there, the seats are uncomfortable for more than a few hours because the table’s too high for it to be ergonomic for me! (#shortpersonproblems) and the music was sometimes distracting as it’s a touch loud.

On the other hand

Starbucks in Sudbury is great for people watching, the background noise and pumpkin spiced lattes – plus it’s attached to the book store, Chapters, which means great inspirational breaks!

Unfortunately, the internet is unreliable at best, and the tables are a tad too small for someone like myself who likes to spread out.

So what makes the best location to work in?

Future or current coffee shop owners listen up! I’m about to disclose MY opinion on what makes a good place to attract entrepreneurs, students, writers, bloggers… anyone who wants to do work away from home.

Ready?

  1. As much natural lighting as possible – I don’t want to feel like I’m in a classroom, and you don’t want me falling asleep and feeling tired… that’ll just make me leave sooner
  2. Quality, home-made, well-priced, nutrient dense food and drink options. Notice how Tim Hortons wasn’t on my list? I wouldn’t work there – I’d leave stuffed with donuts and muffins, not satisfaction of an accomplished day.
  3. A variety of seating arrangements – your clientele is going to be different, just because we all sit, stare at a computer tapping away, and live off caffeinated beverages (or most recently an amazing coffee replacement(that still tastes like coffee)!!), we’re made differently – which means some of us will be more comfortable at a table and share, others at a booth, others a tall seat so they can look out the window, and others in a comfy chair (perhaps by a fireplace… just saying)
  4. (Free) fruit infused water is always a welcomed treat
  5. Music that is at a level that can be heard, but tuned out if needed
  6. Inspiring art work is a must
  7. Plant life – did you know that natural greenery not only helps to elevate oxygen levels in the air which helps to keep people focused and alert, but it also helps ease stress and anxiety!
  8. Friendly staff – seriously, it makes all the difference!

I can go on about my dream-cafe, but I’m going to save that for when I open my own  (yup, it’s a goal of mine! So #coffeeshophoppers, stay tuned!)

What do you think guys? Did I miss anything?? What do you need in your environment to get things done?

#MondayMovement 010 :: #DormWorkout

Fitness, Freedom, health, passion

Happy Monday everyone!

As we head into the second week of going back to school and summer begins to fade into the rear-view mirror, I thought it’d be good to share a few moves that I’ve been utilising as I’ve been tucked away in smaller, dorm-like spaces.

 

*Burpee : *core tight, *hands to floor, *kick back pushing palms into ground,

*Pulsing Lunge : *chest up, *legs at 90 angle, *knees don’t travel over toes

*Bear Pulse: *core tight, *shoulder over wrists, *hips over knees, *push through the toes

 

For those of you who have stuck with me since the beginning – THANK YOU 😀
This has been ten straight weeks (minus being late one week because of the slow connection when I first came to Canada!)

Patience

Boss Lady, Freedom, mindfulness, Self-Love

I want to apologise in advance for your patience with me this month. In effort to get an extended visa to live in the UK I had to return to Canada for 30 days. While I am happy to be home, and love seeing my family, friends, and spend time in some of my favourite places, I’ve struggled staying on top of my routine.

I suppose what I’m trying to say, is thank you for not judging my absence too harshly.

the good news, is since being away, I’ve gathered much inspiration for posts which I’m slowly starting to put onto paper (?) to share with you.

Two posts I’m excited to write about are:

  1. Meal prepping for 1
  2. Where is Home?

While it may take my a few days, maybe even a week to get these out, please know that I haven’t forgotten about you, I still love and appreciate your support, and I’m truly in a space that is brimming with creativity! – I just need the time, and routine to allow me to share 😉

If you are looking for more of an organic update or want to see some highlights from my trip to Canada, then please add me on FB: facebook.com/sarahlynn.patricia

Cheers x

Happy Monday everyone!

Last week I brought to you my very first #MondayMovement kitchen-style and it was well received! Which is great because I’m still in Canada and limited with space and equipment! So here’s another #kitchenworkout to get you started for the week!
We’ll be focusing on our legs, (lunges!!), core, and glutes 😀

Let’s make it sustainable

Boss Lady, DIY, Fitness, Freedom, health, mindfulness, passion, Self-Love

Beginning a new program

Starting anything new brings about a surge of emotions. From nervous to excited, to doubtful,  apprehensive, questioning, eager… I can go through each of these emotions within a split second!!

One thing I’ve learned to be SO important whenever I try something new is to introduce it into my current routine so it fits seamlessly making the transition period less agonizing.

As a creature of habit I know that any big changes need to be introduced in a way that makes going about my day easy, without too much hassle of trying to fit it in.

For instance, when I started working out 7 years ago – It was an on again off again process (I thought I would just magically feel motivated to go to the gym after a long day classes because I had decided I wanted to get fit – HA!) It wasn’t until I had made plans with a friend to meet them every second day for a workout session then dinner plans that I became consistent. The plan was two tiered. I had someone holding me accountable, and I was rewarded with the dinner after a good sweat session!

Find a way to reward yourself

One thing I’ve realised, is I am very goal oriented. If I know that there’s something I’m working for, I will give it my all, but for general reasons, or general betterment and a theoretical betterment in health.. it’s not enough to keep me on track! shock! I know!

So I’ve devised a plan to help me stay motivated, and engaged — yes I pay myself to workout… what of it!? It works! And I get cute leggings and better health… it’s a win on all fronts!

But when even that’s not enough….

Make it easy for yourself! When I decided in June to do an at-home workout program (BEST decision ever!!) I had to find ways to introduce it into my routine so it became second nature.

Here’s what I do:

  1. I plan the time for every workout – put it in my phone and once it’s in the phone, it’s a commitment!
  2. I pick out my outfit the day before (I love cute workout clothes, so this is always exciting!)
  3. I have a playlist ready!
  4. I have a pump up song from my workout playlist wake me up and act as my alarm – that way when it went off, I was signaling to my brain that it’s time to get up and MOVE!
  5. I have all equipment ready and waiting
  6. I cross off a calendar when I workout which means I get 2.00 per workout towards my active wear fund :D:D
  7. I post on social media to help keep me accountable
  8. I reward myself with my FAVOURITE breakfast of champions ❤ (post coming soon!)

Sounds easy, but it HELPS! It’s not meant to be earth shattering changes… those are hardly ever sustainable!

But making a commitment of 1 hour to include my warm up, and my workout, every 3 days, then slowly increasing until I’m at 6 days a week – that’s nothing! I can do that 😀

Making it sustainable is key!

One thing I’ve learned is that if I expect great big changes, I have to take my time, do small things CONSISTENTLY in ways that don’t feel like I’m changing my entire routine.

Because let’s face it, If I want results I’ve never had before, I have to do things I’ve never done before, and for that to happen, I need to prepare my routine to let those actions happen consistently and over a long time period.

Do you have any tips for how you ensure you can stick to your plan?

Happy monday!

Here’s another awesome 3-move circuit to keep you going this week… but this week there’s a twist!

Since coming to Canada for the month, I’ve had no weights, and limited space! So I’ve had to get creative and made #kitchenworkout ! which means this workout sculpts your core, get’s your heart rate up and gives you that workout- burn WITHOUT weights and without needing more than a yoga mat’s surface area worth of space WHOOP WHOOP! 🙂

 

Enjoy!

 

Tracking Progress of my #Fitjourney

Boss Lady, Fitness, Freedom, health, mindfulness, passion, Self-Love, Uncategorized

So Sunday my first time… ever… taking down some measurements so I can compare when I finish a program. 🙈

It was uncomfortable.

Despite being measured by my biggest supporter and best friend, I still felt judged and insecure.

To make matters more stressful, I also had to take starting photos- I literally felt naked, exposed, and so vulnerable.

But I want to know why??

This body that I’m measuring and taking photos of has spent the entire day pulling me up a 3 story climbing wall, and can hold a plank longer, do more pull-ups, and jump higher than before and yet, I’m still uncomfortable. Why?

I want to be honest with you, I think my reason is that I’m still comparing my after-dinner, poor lighting photos to the beautiful morning poses of others on social media.
Is that fair ? No!
Is it their fault? Absolutely not- many of the wonderful girls I follow are very real and transparent about their photos.
But does it happen ? Yes. Still.

So what do I do? Do I get frustrated and embarrassed by the photos and disown them? Absolutely not.
Those photos, regardless of whether I think they represent me well or not, are there for a purpose: to give me a visual reminder of my starting point and as a reminder of how much work and effort I’ve dedicated to my health. It’s the start line of a journey.

It’s not easy, but I do believe it’s worth it. If you’ve ever felt this way, or have to do your own stats, I want you to know it’s nature to feel what you’re feeling, but don’t shy away from it. This is a process, you can never go back and retake a before photo.

And always remember, we all struggle, regardless of where we are in the journey, it’s our minds that get stronger and can help us push through.
We’re in this together 👊🏻💋
