Our Journey Continues… in ECUADOR!

Our Journey Continues… in ECUADOR!

I am sitting there this morning, a little overwhelmed by how fast everything has come together this year.  It seems almost INSANE that in just 4 short days Trevor and I will leave our home in Kelowna BC, travel over 7,000km and set up for SIX months in Puerto Cayo, Ecuador!   Even typing out those words doesn’t fully make sense in my brain yet!  I am not going to lie, GOD have we ever worked hard this year, but it all still feels like an ultimate blessing. Nothing in life comes easy right?  Well we both have first hand experience in learning just how true that is.  All I know is that STAYING STILL is even harder.  Being stuck on repeat in the same nightmarish ‘Groundhog Day’ is MUCH harder than putting in some good old fashioned effort.  My FEAR of staying the same is greater than my FEAR of stepping into the unknown.  Every single time I have stepped out of my comfort zone, nothing but wonderful and beautiful things have happened to me.  I am always left wondering why I carried around so much fear in the first place?  I won’t bring any of it with me to Ecuador.  I have decided to pack it up in a little box and take it out with the last bit of trash before we leave!   So why did we pick Ecuador?   Well, I think it sort of chose us to be honest!  We had both never been there, let alone really know ANYTHING about the country.  We were first searching more common destinations like Costa Rica,...
What Trevor Kucheran’s Inspirational Video Means to Me

What Trevor Kucheran’s Inspirational Video Means to Me

  At this past weekends Super Saturday, I had the honor of being by my fiances side to see the launch of his feature video that was filmed by Beachbody in Cancun this spring.  It is a raw glimpse into his unruly battle with alcoholism, from the darkest moments, right up to the light at the end of the tunnel.   I have to admit, it was hard for me to hold it together.  Even though his story is openly shared, and widely known by many, it never does get any easier for me to hear.  Losing my own brother to a heroin addiction, I have witnessed first hand just how all consuming this dark beast can really be.    Trevor has not only shown his enormous strength by slaying this persistent demon, but continues to show his unwavering solidarity by allowing people to hear the TRUTH so they may gain motivation from his past.  One might think that continuing to reopen old wounds would exasperate the suffering, but Trevor uses his story as a daily reminder of his undeniable capability to overcome adversity.   But this is what Trevor Kucheran’s inspirational video means to me:   When I see how brave Trevor is to share the intimate (and at times, hard to stomach) details of his journey, it literally GIVES me more confidence to share more of my own story.  I have spent the last 15 years desperately covering up my past, in fear that no one would accept me if they saw any piece of it, when in reality the opposite is true.  Even the walls of...
How was the Team Beachbody Summit 2015 in Nashville?

How was the Team Beachbody Summit 2015 in Nashville?

This July has been a such HUGE month for me.  I turned 30 years old, we will be hosting a Super Saturday on the 25th and also, WENT TO SUMMIT FOR THE FIRST TIME!  How was the Team Beachbody Summit 2015 in Nashville?  The word AMAZING just doesn’t cut it!   Can you believe that Beachbody was able to set up and organize a 4 day event for 25,000 of it’s Coaches?  Now that is a feat in itself!  I can say with all honesty I was super impressed with the coordination and the professionalism all around.  Sometimes large events can be a gong show, but everything ran rather smoothly from start to finish.  One of the best parts of Summit was seeing our team in person and getting to spend quality time with everyone!  We communicate DAILY online, but there is nothing like spending some facetime with your fav Coaches!     Wednesday: Core Shopping & Elite Reception Early evening we were let in to ‘The Core’ (Beachbody gear store) early before the masses and got to do a VIP shopping experience.  Yes, we grabbed ALL this swag and then even went back for more 😉 They had a HUGE surprise for all the Elite Coaches… custom GUITARS with their names on them in true Nashville style! After that, we made our way over to the Country Music Hall of Fame for the Elite Reception with the other Elite Coaches and guests.  Amazing southern food, good chats with friends and a live performance by the Striking Matches.   This slideshow requires JavaScript.       Thursday: Opening Ceremonies...
The Truth- How Love Found ME In Darkness

The Truth- How Love Found ME In Darkness

This is probably the most vulnerable, transparent and true post I will ever publish.   All I knew this week is that I wanted to write about the greatest single thing that has happened to me so far in my life, my engagement to Trevor Kucheran.  I don’t even know where to begin, where to end or if I am making any sense at all, but I need to share it!     There was a quote by Helen Keller that came to mind: Once I knew only darkness and stillness… my life was without past or future… but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living. It wasn’t so long ago that I felt exactly the same way as she did.  I felt completely consumed by darkness, with no end in sight, no matter what steps I took or did not take.  I was a power hungry business owner, an egotistical shell with an unquenchable thirst for MORE.  I kept padding myself with material objects and 16 hour work days to lesson the blow that I was not being true to myself, or anyone else in my life.  I felt comfort in the empty dollars that a multi-6 figure income provided me. There were other ‘things’ I used to numb me even further, to a dangerous level of darkness, that I am not proud of.  When I saw the first possible glimpse of an escape, I took it, no questions asked.  What I ended up doing was isolating even more, toppling...
