Uncategorized Feb 11, 2021

Where would you be if you had started a year ago…? A month ago? This is such a POWERFUL thought! The answers are probably both empowering and sobering. I mean, IF ONLY, right?! We all know what we want deep down inside. I think at the root it’s simply to feel proud of ourselves that we did the hard things to get to where we want to be!

When I turned 30, I could NOT stop thinking about gymnastics. I would dream about twirling around the unparallel bars, doing backflips, and back handsprings on the beam! It was constant!! My initial thought was always that my time for that had gone but the nagging voice inside of me didn’t seem to accept that decision. FINALLY, I decided to just go for it and I found a gym that offered a tumbling class for teens and adults. I was SO excited. After the class, my body HURT! But I didn’t even care. I kept going back for more. My coach called me “muscles” because I legit couldn’t do a push-up or a sit-up! I...

Sunday Soul Day

It’s tempting to live your life in a way that won’t upset anyone... Never calling anyone out for not treating you right, allowing people to walk all over you because you don’t want to cause drama, living untrue to who you are because you don’t want to break your spouse/families hearts... to smile and laugh and agree with all. the. things. so that you feel like you’re being seen, heard and approved of and not, heaven forbid, disappointing someone.

 


But I guarantee you that doing all those things and betraying yourSELF constantly will never bring you happiness. A life well-lived is not one in which you ignore your heart to please others. It is a life where you bravely choose to not betray yourself even if it means upsetting others.

You can’t be afraid to disappoint someone more than you’re afraid to disappoint yourself. You can’t be afraid to lose someone more than you’re afraid to lose yourself.

Period.

HOW TO BECOME A MEAL PREP PRO!

If you want to be successful at living a healthier life, it helps to plan ahead. If you don't plan ahead, you're going to choose what's easiest in the moment. That is human nature. If you want to beat that natural inclination, you'll want to find a convenient time to meal prep.  Then, when you're in a hurry, stressed out, or just plain tired, the healthiest choice can be as easy as grabbing a meal prep container and throwing it in the microwave.


I have found so much success with meal prepping. I even have a meal prep buddy! We each prep 8 meals and then swap 4 with each other so we have two meals (4 of each) to choose from all week. It has been amazing!!!

 

I wanted to give you guys my favorite meal prep tips so that you can be successful in your fat loss journey or healthier eating journey!

Get enough containers for a week! Don't forget to purchase small ones for sauces. These are my favorite meal prep containers!

self healers unite soul Feb 02, 2021
 

One of the hardest things for me to let go of was control. I wanted to control everything and it created so much anxiety inside of me. When I finally surrendered to what was and just focused on myself with no expectation of what anyone else thought of me, was when I found my freedom. My anxiety left and I felt so FREE. Free to be seen. Free to be heard. Free to be me. Who knew the whole time I held the keys to my own freedom. We all do.

If you want to learn how to handstand like this, I would LOVE to teach ya! ‍ It is SO fun and has become such a beautiful way for me to meditate ‍ and get focused in the present moment. I love it!!! I offer 1:1 handstand and gymnastics training (adults and kids) locally in Salt Lake City, UT as well as via Zoom (handstands only through Zoom)!

Nice to Meet Ya! ;)

 

Don’t leave me hangin, guys!? Where you from and tell me why you follow me? Handstands... fitness... nutrition... kuz I’m weird and you like it?! I’m so curious! ‍

If you’re new here, I wanted to introduce myself! My name is Amber (aka AMBO) and I am a Certified Personal Trainer , Fitness Nutrition Specialist and Behavior Change Specialist . I also have my Bachelors degree in Psychology and LOVE everything that has to do with the mind. It fascinates me!!

I absolutely LOVE what I do! Work is seriously play to me! And no joke, my clients are seriously the shizzz… you all know who you are!

I’m basically like a big grown up kid ‍ and I just want to play like all the time. So if lifting weights 3-5x/week is going to get me muscles to do all the fun things, I’m in!!...

Soul Alignment

 

For anyone feeling a little lost… keep working, growing {un}learning… you’ll find your way.

Soul alignment.

It’s when you truly learn to love yourself, you choose yourself when around others (instead of protecting them or accepting poor behavior to not lose someone)... it’s when you know who you are, what you want, what you deserve, and where you are going. Your life just feels aligned. You feel aligned. You KNOW you’re on the right path.

Until that point you can feel a little lost… so, how can you work toward being soul aligned? You can work toward this by:

1 Choosing your authentic self even with the threat of not being accepted, loved or chosen. This one is hard but it is so important to love who you are enough to choose yourself at all costs! You can start working toward this by reminding yourself that even if someone doesn’t like you… YOU LIKE YOU and that is really all that matters. If someone doesn’t approve of who...

What does 'Counting Macros' mean?

Macros are all the rage right now and for good reason! Forget the days of 'low carb keto plans,' 'clean eating only,' and 'elimination diets!' Those don't work long-term! It is SO frustrating as a nutrition coach (ACE-FNS) to hear people go on these different types of diets. I like my clients to take a different approach. An approach that:

• teaches you portion control instead of elimination.

• teaches you how to have a healthy relationship with food and eliminate binge-eating.

• teaches you what macros (protein/carbs/fat) your food is made of so you can be more educated about what you are putting into your body.

• teaches you how to incorporate more nutrient-dense food into your diet that tastes GOOD! Who wants to eat chicken, brown rice and broccoli every day? I sure don't! When I'm dieting, I eat amazing food and never tire of my recipes thanks to:

Freedom Post

self-love Sep 08, 2020

 

“When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person that walked in. That is what the storm is all about.”

 

The hardest moments in life are the ones that end up shaping you the most. I’m not going to lie, 2020 has been a shit-show for sure. It started off with a faith crisis that not only devastated me but also majorly impacted some family relationships. I then had a surgery and guys… post-op blues are a real thing.  I had March 31st circled on my calendar with the word “Freedom” next to it. That was my 6-week mark.  But then, COVID happened and we were in lock down. OMG! My marriage was on the rocks and we triiiieeed so hard during this time but by the time May came, we were preparing for a divorce. Some other “fun things” were sprinkled in there as well just to keep life interesting and make sure I truly learned what I was meant to learn this year. And I did.

 

BUT, I can honestly say,...
