Taco Tuesday: Healthy Pork Carnitas

This pork carnitas recipe will make you the hero of your next Taco Tuesday! Mix up the seasoning ingredients that are listed in the image, rub it onto a 2 pound pork tenderloin and place in slow cooker. Add the juice of 1 orange, 1 lime and 2 cloves of minced garlic.

Cook on low for 7-9 hours. Boom.

I like to serve mine on warmed corn tortillas with some sliced avocado and pico de gallo!

Little Black Dress Challenge

little black dress challenge

This is the story of a little black dress.
That was worn once and then never again.
Do you have one of these too?
That dress that made you feel like Audrey Hepburn.
Does it sit in the back of your closet now like this one does?

Well, I have a plan to rock this dress again on New Year’s Eve. And if you’re up for the challenge, I’d love for you to join me.

Pull out that dress from the closet that you can’t bring yourself to get rid of. The one that you keep saying you’ll maybe fit into again someday. And let that be your motivation to start with me on November 30th.

You’ll dance, stretch, lift, or cardio up a daily sweat
You’ll ward off the sugar plum fairy with my secret weapon shake
You’ll follow a healthy meal plan
{While still enjoying the holidays, of course…no one is taking MY wine glass away so I’d never take away yours!}

Find Your Balance

020-BensonTwins

I am a proud stay at home mom of twins plus one and a loving wife to my best friend and husband. This is a part of my story, but it’s not my whole story. Inside of me exists this whole big world filled with dreams of traveling, learning, and writing books. Since becoming a mom it’s been a struggle to imagine how any of it could come true because of how busy life has become! Until I realized that I could stay committed to my passions, while being flexible with my approach. This is where my journey to find balance began. Becoming a health and lifestyle coach has opened my eyes to the power of having a supportive community to back up my dreams!

Find your center

My vision is to help women stay connected to every part of themselves. In order to honor ourselves those around us we need to take care of ourselves! By inspiring our minds, fueling our bodies, and building our strength we will create the inner and outer space we need to thrive.

OPPORTUNITY ALERT: I’m looking for 5-10 fellow moms who are looking to get healthy and take back their life.

Giving and positive moms who could benefit from finding a balance between their have-to-do’s and their want-to-do’s, getting support from others, learning time management tips, and more.

A mom who is willing to INVEST IN HERSELF. That could dedicate 30 minutes a day to working out, improving her nutrition, saving time with a superfood shake, and learning all about portion control with healthy, family-friendly meals. Because she knows when she is happy and feeling good, it makes her family happy too.

Join me MOMS!

Goal Digger of the Month: Samantha Rockin’ Her Beach Body!

transformation 21 day fix

I’ve decided to do a transformation series on this blog, because these stories inspire me and overload my love tank every single day! Sam was one of my first customers. When we started chatting about her goals she explained to me that she wanted to tone up before her upcoming trip to Florida. Based on her goals and her current routine we hooked her up with Beachbody’s 21 Day Fix EXTREME challenge pack.

If you want to talk about committing to a program….Sam is a PERFECT example of what I mean. This girl knows the nutrition plan front to back, asks questions when she has them, drinks Shakeology daily, and crushes the workouts every. single. day.

Throughout her first round of the program she’d tell me how good she was feeling and that she was loving her results. Still, when she shared this before and after picture I was blown away. I mean, seriously…BEACH BABE, am I right?? She lost 10 pounds and gained lean muscle. You can feel her confidence shining through in that second picture. I also want to share with you that Sam’s journey to health didn’t just start in February. Since June 2013 this inspiring woman has lost 50 pounds. 50 pounds, people! She took the first step, hasn’t looked back, and so can you.

This is a lifestyle change, not a quick fix. Yes, you lose weight and inches, but this is about SO much more than that too. It’s about taking back control of your health with knowledge and workouts that empower you to be the best version of you.

Sam quickly became a coach as soon as she started to feel those waves of change ripple through her. Now she’s helping others along their health and fitness journey. Nothing worth having ever comes easy. Sam WORKS for it. And that’s what makes her success that much sweeter. I couldn’t be more proud to have her in my life or on my team of coaches.
