UPgrade.

Sep 11, 2019

“I would walk down the aisles looking for medications to speed up my metabolism… I was on medications for back pains, stomach ulcers, anxiety, migraines…. My daily mantra was that I could never run, lift or ride. I was stuck, lonely and desperate for someone to tell me what to do."

 

“I was working out, eating “right” and doing all the things, but nothing was changing. I was stuck, I just didn’t know it."

 

Sound familiar?

 

We know. We have heard it. We lived it.

 

These stories- they end differently than most.

 

They ignored the doubtful glances from Aunt Debbie.

They didn’t listen to Becky telling them all the reasons why it wouldn't work.

They trusted their inner voices enough to make a MOVE.

 

And boy did it work.

 

“8 months later I was medication free…. I lost inches and pounds, gained muscle, and found my jawline… more than that, found inner confidence, looked myself in...

Football Foods.

Sep 06, 2019

Mooch’s dad was quite the football star and Mel wrote her 4th grade paper on LT (don’t tell Mooch she was once a Giants fan). It’s safe to say that we are both a fan of football… and football foods.

 

Here’s a Move Approved crockpot (can you say time blocking?) chili recipe we tweaked from the medical medium.

 

For Chili:

2-3 cans of black beans or kidney beans

4 cups diced onion

4 garlic cloves, minced

2 cups diced carrots

2 cups diced celery

2 cups diced mushrooms

2 cups diced red bell pepper

2 teaspoons each cumin, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, and chili powder

Some Words of Wisdom

 

3 words to eliminate from your vocabulary to get a little wiser this week: 

-should

-good

-bad

 

We challenge you to see how empowering and freeing it is to let these words go. Replace them with something more empowering and watch how your energy changes.

 

When your energy changes, your life changes.

 

We are pretty f*ckin powerful, aren’t we?

 

Speaking of powerful- what’s your superpower?

2 MOVE.s

Sep 03, 2019

We have a massive community that transforms their lives through our mind, body and belly content in the MOVE. Method. They ditch calorie counting and embrace the different values of food. They no longer count almonds and they eat the damn cookie. And they learn how improving their gut health not only increases their energy, it improves sleep, skin, bloat, brain fog and leaves them no longer fearing foods.

 

More recently we banded together an alliance of elite entrepreneurs-  some current, some aspiring and all of them ready to make some major MOVE.s. Teaching them the methods and skills we used to build MOVE. and make massive impact- so that they can bring their skills, passions and ideas into the world to make massive impact, too.

 

Both groups? Inspire us each and every day to keep growing, progressing and showing up powerfully. All of these humans have said a major YES to themselves, their lives and leveling up. And you know what? Whether personally with our...

#nobadtime

Aug 31, 2019

I joined when it was the absolute worst time and it turns out it was exactly the perfect time."

 One of our MOVE.rs shared this feedback on a call recently.

 We just want to remind you that it’s never the right time.

 When Mel was completely uncertain on her career path/financial future and in a lot of hospital and college debt she ran her credit card to invest (massively) in herself. Fingers crossed and eyes closed.

 Mooch was contemplating a cross-country move and leaving a comfy (unsatisfying) job while simultaneously unsure if this new “career” move would be enough to pay for Boston rent. 

 When people tell us that “it’s not the right time” we totally get it.

And we also know, those times….  the ones when nothing feels secure, there are a million unknowns and you feel a little crazy for trusting yourself enough to take on one more thing.

THOSE times.

Are the life changing times.

Back to School Blues?

Aug 29, 2019

Traffic is up and Temps are down.

 

It’s back to school.

 

Which means new routines.

 

Change.

 

Anyone else struggle with change?

 

We used to, too.

 

Here’s the thing, when you learn to create your own “routine” for your energy, when you are fully in control of how you feel and when you don’t leave it up to the summer season, school year,  holiday season or any other external circumstance, you MOVE. from the passenger seat to the driver’s seat.

 

We watch our MOVE.rs do this and it makes our hearts smile.

 

Changes in routine no longer affect their health, happiness or successes.

 

Traffic? It’s just an opportunity to build some patience, listen to a podcast or soak in some quiet time.

Temps? We still haven’t figured out how to reconcile with these.

 

Progress, not Perfection.

 

Comment a  if you are all about being in the drivers seat!

All the Feels.

Aug 27, 2019

In the words of one of our MOVE.rs-

 

"One month into the program I realized I was starting to gain the tools to fuel myself- not starve myself. I wasn't making my choices based on calories- but ingredients. By the second month I threw away my scale (good riddance)...... I realized I was working out for pleasure- not to burn something off. Most importantly I was finally getting to know myself- what I really enjoyed and valued. How I could push myself in healthy ways. I was having better conversations- better relationships with others and myself.

 

MOVE. Is a part of me now. The community, the tools it has given me, the mindset exercises... it's my everyday. And I feel so lucky to be able to say that- for choosing me and signing up. But if I'm being honest the biggest transformation is the one that happened inside of me. The changing of the way I think about myself and the acceptance of my body and what it needs. The voice I use with myself these days is more supportive and...

How this 30-Something Broke Free of Fad Diets & Exercise

Aug 25, 2019

Count this. Eat that. Don't eat this.
Sugar free, fat free, guilt free, gluten free.... macros, carbs, protein...
the list goes on and it's freaking exhausting.

This 30-something-year-old was SURROUNDED by it.
And EXHAUSTED by it.

She was scared as hell, unsure of it would work and said one thing changed her life, forever.

Choosing to make the scary investment in herself and make a MOVE.

In her words: 

"One month into the program I realized I was starting to gain the tools to fuel myself- not starve myself. I wasn't making my choices based on calories- but ingredients. By the second month I threw away my scale (good riddance)...... I realized I was working out for pleasure- not to burn something off.

Stuck AF?

Aug 21, 2019

The biggest mistake we see?

 Not taking that step because you are waiting for certainty of results.

 Not signing up for a race unless you know you will place, well.

Not going for a promotion or asking for time off for fear of what might go wrong.

Not investing in yourself unless you know exactly what the ROI will be.

 We call this (perfection paralysis or over-attached to outcome ) 

 What does it do?

 Keeps us stuck AF.

 And kidding ourselves we are better off in our comfort zone.

 We believe in you all so damn much. In your worth, your abilities, your possibilities.

We want you to believe in you, too.

 A favorite Words of Wisdom mindset switch? Instead of leading with what might go wrong, start leading with curiosity about what could go right. Then value yourself enough to go for it and love yourself for embarking on the process (whatever the specific process may be) to meet your goals.

 The ironic part? When you focus on the...
