Ok...so, I am pretty embarrassed that it has been almost a month of nothing on my blog.
Our family has seen some pretty major things happen and I have some really great excuses and reasons. But, all i can do is say i will do better. Please stick with me, I started this blog and I dont want to let it go to the wayside. So, like everything else in my life...here is to my fresh start. Today, my husband actually wanted to "guest write" my post. So, enjoy <3
I thought I would take a minute to commandeer my wife's blog for a minute so I might add a little outside perspective. Every day I have a front row ticket to Tina's juggling act that involves her business as well as all the things she does for us, as a family. Somedays I can see her joy and determination as she tries to grow things while other days I see the sadness she's terrible at hiding when her coaches are struggling or having difficulties. Most nights we go to bed at the same time but I nod off long before she does because she is still helping people as she lies next to me with her computer in her lap.
Yesterday she invited me to do a workout with her and before I could rationally think about it, I blurted out, "Sure!" I used to work out regularly but haven't done anything recently that would even remotely be considered any sort of physical endeavor. I still didn't think I would have much trouble because I have a long and illustrious history of over-estimating my abilities. (Two days prior to this I had an argument with my teenager daughter about how I could probably make the next olympics if I set my mind to it. Albeit, I was referring to Curling, but that still counts). Anyway, you get my point... I would probably knock 22 Hardcorp out the park.
We both started off strongly and then things got interesting. About 7 minutes in, I was hurting and having conversations in my head with Tony Horton that aren't suitable for this post. I was sweaty and my tummy hurt and I was quite sure I shredded my Achilles, my MCL, and perhaps had even contracted a bout of Scurvy somewhere in between the gorilla crawls and the galactic burpees. I finished the workout but by the end I made the modifier look like an American Ninja Warrior.
And all the while Tina just keep plugging along like the Engergizer Bunny. I saw that I need to make some adjustments in my life and am now considering how to move forward. But I was inspired by my wife and just wanted to give a shoutout to her because she works so hard and inspires so many people that I don't know every day. But yesterday it was my turn. She was patient and helpful and made me feel like I could it. I got to be a client for a few minutes and realized how fortunate her team is.
Thank, Tina... I'm your biggest fan.
What comes to mind when you think of a 'small business?' Maybe images of the local mom and pop shop or a restaurant that is unique to your community? Perhaps you think about hardworking men and women who had the guts to start a business from scratch in spite of the pressure and competition of the larger box stores. You might not want to admit it but even those moms on facebook doing the MLM route... those are their businesses. They count, too 😘Many of us like to support local small businesses so here's somethings for you to consider.
How about me?
I started my BeachBody journey 2 1/2 years ago so I could get healthy and make enough money to cover the cost of my monthly Shakeology order. After a while, that became a reality and I fell in LOVE with the community around me and all of those people who began their own journeys.
I am a small business...
Actually, it doesn't get much smaller than me and the size of my staff (ME) definitely does not equal the output of my effort. I am the definition of a small business. I provide a valuable service and in addition to all the hours I put into my business during the week, I am also on-call 24/7 for my coaches and team. I contribute to the local economy and do my best to help those who work with me earn as much as they can. An investment in me is really an investment into the lives of many others. When I first started this business I'm not sure I would have been bold enough to write this, but I am proud of what I do and the implications it has for others.
Who is ready to do something GOOD for yourself? Something that will affect every part of your life to make it more enjoyable? That's what happens when you choose to take control of your health - everyone and everything in your life benefits from it. Fill your cup first, so you can pour into others! This is real. This works and can help you.
I dont know if you are like me, but I did a lot of research and "watching" before deciding to do this. Not only do I have a great deal for anyone that wants to jump in and get started with me this weekend, you get a gift with purchase to sweeten the deal!!!
What a great way to end 2017 strong and get started right in 2018! Maybe you overheard your S.O wanting to do something like this. Maybe a loved one, family member or friend needs this. Whatever it is, I hope you think of me. I love what I'm doing and I want to grow this business as big as I can because I feel like I have so much to offer. I want to thank all of you for your support of me and my business. Thank you for trusting me, believing in me and walking along side me in this journey. I know you have heard it before and I hope you believe when people say it is a HUGE deal when you are supporting your friends and small businesses.
I know the Lamm's are super grateful.
Enjoy your Saturday.

I love Shaun T. He is the man who helped get me started on my fitness journey with CIZE.
I am so stinking excited to announce that Shaun T is coming back for another appearance!! Shaun T is launching Shaun T Week To Beachbody On Demand on June 12th 2017. It is 1 week of fitness but it is about changing your life and transforming your mind and body. It is about getting motivated to get connected to your fitness, to your mental journey and to continuing on with your progress and reaching your health and fitness goals. It will be a great kickstart for you.
When Does It Start?
It is a 2 part group. The first part is a 3 day detox and starts on June 9th. It is giving our bodies a jumpstart on this journey. The 2nd part is the workout part of the group. That starts on June 12th and it goes day by day live on Beachbody On Demand. You will not be able to look ahead. Each workout is posted live that morning. How cool is that? We can crush it together through my support and accountability group.
How to get it? You need to make me your coach and get Beachbody On Demand through me.
Another awesome thing is that there is a great modifier! So even if you don’t feel like you can do this, you can modify with Shaun T and he gives you that option. These workouts are like the best of Shaun T, his greatest hits!
Insane Basics: Go Slow, form over speed, work through it.
Pure Cardio Part 2: It is going to be amazing! You don’t go to the floor at all.
Insane Weights: This workout is hitting the weights in an Insanity format.
25 Abs: 25 minutes of abs that is so ridiculously amazing that you will need to pray before do it!
BrickSanity: Asylum strength and T25 mixture and a lot of insane craziness!
Speed 4.0: Speed workout similar to what you did in T25 Speed 1.0 and 2.0
Dig Deep is how you end the week with a bang! This is BANANA’s YO!!!! This sounds like Friday Fight From Max 30.
So it won’t stop at the end of 7 days. There is a lot more in store for you after those 7 days!
What’s Your Next Steps?
This is going to be incredibly awesome and I want you to join our exclusive group for this program. Are you in?? Do you want to join me?
Im a 43 year old Mom taking charge of her health and who's passionate about helping you live your healthiest, happiest life.
