Revolution

Formal Introduction

Hi there,
It dawned on me that I hadn’t done a formal introduction about my blog/ website and what I had hoped to accomplish with it. So here goes!

My name is Kim and I am an Independent Team Beachbody coach. I am also a photographer (Kimberly Young Photography), I hold a 9-5 desk job, and I love arts, crafts, hiking, the outdoors and LIFE in general.

Why is this important? Because I’m going to be sharing my time saving, multitasking, most effective, and sometimes just plain fun activities with you. I will show you how I juggle owning two businesses and work a full time job. I will also share how I save money by doing things myself (and have fun doing it).

Great Kim, how does all of this relate to a revolution (Kim’s Health Revolution)? It relates because I choose to revolt the idea that being healthy and fit means giving up time doing other things you love. I am revolting against the idea that health and fitness fits in a square box. I am building a self revolution that being healthy includes fitness, a good diet, lifestyle, and happiness. And I am inviting you to join me on my journey!

I have a couple of asks of you. Could you please do me a HUGE favor and follow my blog here? And if you get a chance, follow my facebook page (Kims Health Revolution).

One more little ask, so that I can begin to get to know you better — if you are up for completing a short survey, I will GIFT to you a FREE 7 day meal planner!

Little Steps Create BIG Results!

Happy Sunday!

This weekend has been a wonderful “Summer Day” type weekend. I got so much done this weekend and it has been a reminder that little steps can create HUGE results. I got my organic garden planted and cannot wait to harvest the fruits of my labor (tomatoes, basil, mint, lemon cucumbers, and MORE). Eating lots of fresh produce has been one of the biggest steps we have taken that has helped us turn our diets around. As I was thinking about this, I started to think about all of the other little changes we have made to our diets that have contributed to a total weight loss of over 75lbs between Andrew and myself, and I wanted to share them with you. They were little changes that added up to big results.

The most visible change was that we began eating breakfast, and we aren’t just eating random breakfast themed foods. We enjoy our breakfast with half water, half almond milk, a little ice and a scoop of our favorite flavor of Shakeology (Mine is strawberry and Andrew loves the chocolate).

A few other little changes we made are:

Eat These

 

Other ideas that I cannot wait to try include spaghetti squash, cauliflower “potato” salad, and cauliflower pizza crust!

What are some changes you are making to your diet that have been successful to the enhancement of your health? I’d love to get wonderful ideas.

War is when you…

War is when your government tells you who the enemy is. Revolution is when you figure it out for yourself. ~ Anomymous

This is the quote that inspired me to create Kim’s Health Revolution. We spend so much time listening to news anchors, TV doctors, and “specialists” that recommend doing or not doing something. People that advise us what is good to eat, and what isn’t. I believe that although we all have similar needs, we still all function differently. Something that I am doing and seeing success in, may not work for your body¬† and your needs. My goal with this journey is to help you spark your own health revolution. I want to help you find tools and foods that work to make you look and feel healthy. Welcome to my revolution!
