Here’s what you need to be a part of this challenge:-A partner/spouse/significant other! When you are in school there is the teacher and the student right?! And I know us women like to rule our men  This challenge focuses on team work, so having a partner is critical to your success. Each person in this challenge must be using a Beachbody program….and it’s okay if you both use a different one. You want to do the 21 day fix and your partner wants to do Body Beast? No problem! Invite a friend to take part in this challenge with you (if your spouse is going to be a sissy) After all, it is proven that friends who work out with friends stick with it and see results better than if they were to do it alone! 
Success Partners are key!

Get up and make this Fall your best yet!!!! Back to School is in full effect ????????

When you fall down, get back up…..

Sitting here thinking about my journey as a Beachbody Coach and what is going on in my life right now and it made me think of all the times I had to start over!!!

failure, success, fall down, get back up, motivation, inspiration, fitness, health, help, small goals, set backs, struggles, life happens, sick, how to get back on track, how to keep going, how to be you, how to live a fit life, support

Lets see…. Joined a Gym in 2008 after I had my daughter—7 months into going to the gym daily (waking at 4am because I had school) i found out I was pregnant with Neyko…. After I had Neyko in Oct 2009 I started at the gym again (FAILED— I wanted sleep and the gym was not working for me) THEN I bought P90X off of an informercial in March of 2010— quit 4 week in— i was afraid you succeed… for a full year I tried every fad diet, diet pill, and anything I could get my hands on to try and lose weight while still being sane enough to take care of my kids (yes diet pills and not eating makes you moody and crazy)

Then the LIGHT was brought to me by My coach… for several month she messaged me and messaged me about trying shakeology and I said no no no… then said LETS TRY IT with the discount because I could never help anyone else— So Signed as a discount coach for the 25% and FELL in LOVE!!!!

Was I 100% clean eating and 100% stay on track when I restarted P90X in 2011?? NO… there were many slip ups, many picnics and parties that I would have cake and ice cream and goodies! But I never let that derail me from the success I knew I wanted and I was worth! So I would pick back up and keep going!

3 years into my journey and life happens…. you get sick (i have not felt myself since Vegas (last week in June)) and you eat off track, you miss workouts, and you just want to sleep and do nothing (miserable, unmotivated) yep that has been me! Am I giving up? NO! Am I starting over? not completely but you could say YES! This is Life, This is my struggle… BUT this is me!!!

NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU HAVE TO START OVER, REMEMBER IT IS OK!!! WE HAVE ALL BEEN THERE A TIME OR TWO AND WE WILL BE HERE TO HELP AND SUPPORT YOU NO MATTER WHAT!!!!

I have started over more than I would like to admit, but each time I feel stronger because of those obstacles that have got in my way!!!

How many times have you given up or had to start over???

failure, success, fall down, get back up, motivation, inspiration, fitness, health, help, small goals, set backs, struggles, life happens, sick, how to get back on track, how to keep going, how to be you, how to live a fit life, support

PRIORITIES: Balancing your life and fit life!

So many times I get questions on how I balance my life with my Beachbody life? Well it is kind of simple they are 1 now!!! It may not have been an easy transition and probably took me a good 3 months to get serious about it, but it was all about prioritizing my time!

Priorities, balance your life, stay on track, reach goals, nikki kuban minton, top coach, elite beachbody coach, beachbody coach, success, organization, time managment

Balance is something that you want and NEED in your life! I will give you a few steps that have helped me get into the habit of creating my lifestyle!

1. Write out all of the things you have going on in your life. (Work, Family, Hobbies, Fitness, Travel, Parties, etc)
2. Give each area a set time frame (ex. fitness 5-7a, work 9-5p, family time 6-9p, hobbies Sat. 9-12p)
3. Put it on a family calendar (on fridge or wherever you all look), then set alarms on your phone and in your phone calendar… get organized
4. If you have certain goals you want to reach- include your family in them! (workout every day- lose 10 lbs- eat healthier… be able to travel more)

5.Get an accountability partner– someone that will make sure you are on track with your prioritize and goals! Spouse- friend- coach- co worker- someone you look up to and cannot let down!

Once you follow these steps, make a CONSCIOUS effort to stick to it for 1 FULL month! Week 1 will be hard, you may skip something or struggle to get it all done! Week 2, you may find yourself tired and exhausted by the end of the day/week! Week 3 you will start to feel accomplished and successful! Week 4 will be a habit and you will no longer have to sigh or feel unorganized!!!! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK AND YOU WILL REACH EVERY GOAL YOU EVER SET!

That is me and who I am and who I will always be! No amount of money, no number in ranking, no nothing will change me from being me! And that is what I want to show you all!

You don’t have to be someone you are not— for years I tried living and being someone I wasn’t to fit in, to look like, or act like others and let me tell you it SUCKS when you are left to dry because you could never be them— BE YOU!

This ^^^ is Cortni S. She has had an amazing Transformation! Read her story Here!

If you are not the person you want to be, change! But don’t look at someone that is on Chapter 20 or their journey when you are only on Chapter 1! You have a story to tell and a story to live, when you are just starting out all you can do is compare yourself to the person you were yesterday! We all have a different journey to live and a different story to tell! We come from a different place with different genes! If we can’t be the person we want to be then we need to let the past go and start living for today and put on step in front of the other!!!

 

Compare yourself to the BEST YOU YOU HAVE EVER BEEN! Never compare yourself to someone you never were, because you will never be that person! Be yourself! Everyone else is taken =)

Womens Body Beast Vegan Meal Plan and Goals that make YOU Happy!

Back in November, right around my birthday, I had this feeling of “incompleteness” and I wanted more for my fitness goals…. I threw the idea of a fitness (figure or bikini) competition around and I had so many people say yes and others say no… I got a lot of “it’s going to kill your body and take away time from your kids” and so I just did the Ultimate Reset again and bam didn’t feel accomplished…

I always tell my challengers “you can do it, you can do whatever you put your mind to” and here I was letting myself down- not pushing hard enough- not doing something I wanted to “try”

Back in March I committed to Body Beast with my husband, Chris Minton, and told him and have been still playing with the idea of a competition and he said ok let’s do it! I’ll support you and do whatever you need! So I said ok, never set a date of fully committing and a friend messaged me ” I HAVE AN IDEA call me” yep pretty sure that solidified my decision!!!!!!!

All the details are not final but as of today I am ALL IN 100% so now all I need is YOUR support during this! Help me stay accountable PLEASE!
