$73,034 in debt paid off this July!

$73,034!

That’s how much non-mortgage debt our clients paid off in July!

Isn’t that inspiring? We are so excited for them. A lot of people think getting on a budget will restrict them. In actuality, it gives you freedom to spend because you KNOW exactly how much you have and you know everything is covered! That allows you to let the stress and anxiety melt away. Of course, getting out of debt is one of our first goals with your budget.

We coach 1-1 virtually & in person. Check out this fun photo of our client who has taken a second job to make extra money in order to get out of debt faster!

We’re Dave Ramsey master certified financial coaches so we quote him all the time. He has this joke we love:

Do you know what you have when you don’t have payments?

-Pause for effect-

Money!

If you still have debt, do this quick exercise: Add up your monthly minimum payments. Then, imagine what you could be doing with that money.

Are you showing up for future you?

This week in our group coaching program, we’re talking about choosing long-lasting well-being over instantly-gratifying false pleasures. Craig Groeschel has a great quote to start us off:

Choose your pain: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.

Craig Groeschel

You see, both regret and discipline are painful, aren’t they? The pain of discipline shows up when you say NO to the ice cream. The pain of regret shows up AFTER when you feel bad physically and mentally.

In our lives we are constantly bombarded with all sorts of options for false pleasure.

With our food, we can have any sort of sugary, carby, cheesy goodness. It seems great, it’s instantly gratifying because our brains tell us this is good. But then what happens? That pleasure vanishes and is replaced by bloat, stomach aches, not sleeping well, health problems and, probably, regret.

With our spending habits we can instantly feel good by buying something. We have this term “emotional spender.” But, what happens a bit after we’ve spent that money? We lose that quick high for debt, for clutter, for having to stress about money or check our balances at the register.

But, when we choose being WELL, when we choose making GOOD choices, we have to tell our toddler selves no in the moment. But, what do we get instead? We get really long lasting benefits.

When we make the choices to eat well and exercise we get benefits like feeling good, being proud, being able to wear all of our clothes, getting good reports at the doctors, better sleep, better sex and more!

When we make the choices to budget and tell out money where to go, we get benefits like getting debt free, getting to keep more of our money, going on vacation, being surrounded with things you love and even being about to be generous!

The false pleasures are liars. They make you think you’re happy, but it’s a temporary and false happy compared to the joy of being the person you want to be.

So, next time the opportunity presents itself, as yourself which you want: instant gratification or long-lasting well-being!

If you need any help with this, set up a 15 minute consultation with us. We are here to help.

I’m not a huge meal prepper, but I do love prepping breakfasts…and one of my go-to breakfasts to make for the week has always been overnight oats! There’s nothing simpler than throwing a bunch of ingredients in a bowl at night and waking up to a ready-made breakfast in the morning.

I love that I can make a large amount all at once on my meal prep day for healthy breakfasts all week. Even better? I make them all with a different combination of delicious toppings!

I actually started this when I was teaching and because I assembled the oats in small mason jars, I had a portable breakfast to bring to work each morning. I used to heat them up and bring them to our morning team meetings…and I swear, even when there were donuts around, people wanted to know what I was eating because they smell so freaking good!

2 red bell peppers, diced
1 fresh pineapple, diced
¼ cup diced red onion
1 pound zucchini noodles OR 1 bundle fresh asparagus

If using fresh zucchini noodles add them to containers raw. When you reheat the bowls the zoodles will cook with the rest of the meal.

Unstuffed Breakfast Tacos

Saturday morning the family wants breakfast tacos/bacon and eggs. How about the “unstuffed taco?” Hash browns, eggs, bacon, veggies of choice and cheese if you want it!! Use avocado if going dairy free!


I keep diced tomatoes in the pantry for just this situation-out of fresh! Just be sure nothing’s added. Likewise the simply potato brand is pretty good for hash browns. Remember, potatoes are on the plan they just don’t provide much nutrition so they aren’t a main staple.

Totally DELISH, better than a restaurant.
