Inspire Me Mommy! : A Community for Women & Children

Attention Beautiful Women & Mothers:

Some of you have been a part of Inspire Me Mommy! , and some of you haven't even heard of it! Well, first of all - it's back! This community is for women & children to come workout, be healthy, accountable, and have fun! As women we often get caught up in caring for our men, children & communities. In that process, we can fail to care for ourselves. Everyone knows that part of being around for our families is being healthy. We also know that working out increases serotonin & endorphin levels to help us feel happier.

When you want to succeed as 
bad as you want to breathe,
then you will be successful.
-Eric Thomas 
Inspire Me Mommy! allows you to bring your children (or leave them elsewhere!) for no additional cost. Too often I hear excuses like: "I can't today, I have my kids". Or "childcare is too expensive" Well that partially true! Even 24 Hour Fitness in Nevada no longer offers childcare due to expenses vs. income. I wonder how many moms will stop working out now?

Inspire Me Mommy! takes away EVERY excuse! For some of you ladies, I know your husbands work Saturdays or play football. What better way to start your weekend then being healthy, receiving encouragement, being in community, and letting your children make new friends? Our children mimic our behavior, and if we show them how to be healthy and have fun doing it, they are much more likely to follow your lead!

As women, our jobs are to be encouraging superwomen who get it all done! How can we do that without investing in ourselves, and being accountable to other women? If we don't have goals, we can't truly help others achieve their goals. In fact, this program was created by me just to help inspire communities, and to connect with all my friends that are moms. I am not yet a mom, and honestly felt like I had a hard time connecting. I have to say, this program is a true blessing! In fact, I am even working with WIC to extend this program as part of my mission to help build stronger women, children, and communities.

Inspire Me Mommy! : Partnership with Erin Laster

I’m Erin. I’m partnering up with the Inspired By Purpose program called Inspire Me Mommy! in which I am part of the community. I’m also a wife, mother, fitness lover and independent consultant with Arbonne, a health and wellness company. This month I am teaming up to help inspire and educate moms about getting healthy from the inside out!

My Story: 

A New Mom, Wellness Coach, Business Owner, Teacher & Fitness Lover

          I have recently entered the life of motherhood, and while it is the most beautiful, rewarding experience I’ve had, it also flips our lives upside down.  So long are the days of CHOOSING to get up at 6:00 in the morning to workout, taking a shower or bath alone, or running a few quick errands after work.  Shoot, I’m lucky if I make it to work on time without the kid still in the car! (Yep, I’ve literally driven all the way to work to find my son in the backseat because I forgot to drop him off at the sitter!)  

         Being a mom is great, but I needed something I could do with my son that still was good for me too.  I was excited to join Channell’s Inspire Me Mommy! program over the summer because it filled this desire. You know, the desire to talk to someone other than your kids, to workout beyond picking up the pacifier off of the floor with the baby in arms, or to just plain get out of the house every now and again? Yeah, that one!

          The other part of having a baby that’s a drag (unless you’re one of those girls we all hate, who leaves the hospital in your pre-preggo jeans) is getting the baby weight off in a timely manner.  I experienced this to the max, in fact, I gained 50 pounds...which some might think is not that much until I tell you that I was only 100 pounds to begin with!! Needless to say, I was ready for a change; a change in my physical and emotional health. 
          The two factors that play the largest roll in physical and mental health, is diet and exercise.  So, that’s what I did. I worked out with Inspire Me Mommy!, and I started changing my eating habits.  This is how Arbonne came into my life.  I was in desperate need to drop a few pounds...the whole wearing the maternity pants long after baby was born was not cute!  A dear friend of mine turned me on to Arbonne’s 30 Days to Feeling Fit Program.  I loved that this was not a fad or crash diet.  This was the opportunity to change the way I thought about food.  There’s no calorie counting, cabbage soup, or special pixie pills.  This program is good old fashioned clean eating.  

My Secret? Clean Eating + Exercise

Arbonne's 30 Day Program Focuses on 5 Key Areas of Health:

-Eating clean- This plan focuses on eating organic (as much as possible) whole foods free of preservatives, additives, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, artificial flavors and all other toxins.

-Increasing nutrient intake- Due to the overabundance of pre-packaged and fast food, many people today are overweight yet malnourished. They carry toxic fat while their bodies are starving for real nutrition. Eating whole foods, drinking water, and supplementing with nutrients can reverse this condition.

-Eliminate allergenic and addictive foods and beverages (Processed sugars,    gluten, soy, dairy, etc)

-Balance blood sugar- Eating foods that have a low glycemic load can help balance our blood sugar and eliminate cravings for sugar and carbs.

-Support elimination in organs (with a 7-day body cleanse & herbal detox tea)-We wouldn’t think about going a day without brushing our teeth, let alone years and years. Because we can’t see our liver, kidneys, and intestines we forget the important role they play in detoxification. The liver has over 500 functions and the kidneys filter 200 quarts of blood per day. You can hold 5-25 lbs. of waste in your large intestine (colon). All elimination organs need a “tune up” and proper maintenance.

All 5 areas are supported by Arbonne’s whole food nutritional line that is certified vegan, free of gluten, dairy, soy, whey, artificial colors, flavors, and sweeteners.  

Some of the products that make life easier while cleansing include:

-Vegan protein shakes
-Sugar free energy drinks
-Herbal detox tea
-Soluble fiber
-Weight loss chews
-7-day detox
-Metabolism booster
-Whole food vitamins

        My Personal Results:

           I completed this 30 day program a couple months ago.  I lost 18 pounds, 2 inches in my waist, and gained more energy than I have ever had.  But more than that, I gained back my health.  I eliminated cravings and bad eating habits, and learned how I can provide my family with nutritious, clean meals on a busy schedule. To me, this was priceless. 
          When the 30th day came I was pleasantly surprised to find that I didn’t want to go back to eating the way I had before.  I passed on the donuts at work, the bread basket at dinner, and the sugary beverages I had craved before.  After experiencing this feeling, I wanted everyone in my life to feel the same way I did.  I joined Arbonne because I believe in this program.

My Goal

          Arbonne’s healthy living programs are more than just a box of products.  When you make the decision to get healthy with Arbonne, you get support from coaches, like myself, who have been through the program.  You also get access to meal plans, recipes, and a Facebook support page exclusively for Arbonne clients going through the cleanse. 
          My goal is to partner with other women to help them reach their health goals.  Whether those goals are weight loss, weight maintenance, reversing the effects of allergenic foods on the body, or just plain helping women make healthier day to day choices.  These changes are meant to be lifestyle changes, not “diets.”  You will feel better, have more energy, sleep better, and look great!!

          So, what are you waiting for? Put your best foot forward in 2014.  It’s never too late to make a change; your body depends on it!

'Tis the Seaon to be Healthy!

Dear Friends,

Welcome to December (a few days late, I know). If you're like most Americans, you're feeling the chaos, pressure, full calendars of office parties, business parties, friends' parties. Not to mention if you have children or family in town, you probably hear your child saying "I want that for Christmas!" at every commercial they see, or every time you go into the store. Did I mention that at every party, and mostly everyday this month your co-workers and friends will be tempting you with fresh-baked goodness?

So how do you stay healthy and fit this month? I have a few simple tips that will help ease the chaos, keep you feeling good about yourself, and even get a jump start on those 2014 New Years Resolutions! 

Channéll's Tips to Live in Joy & Peace this Season

  • THINK BACK TO YOUR NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS FOR 2013. Did you write them down or perhaps even make a poster board for them? When was the last time you looked at them? A good starting place to end this year strong, is to remember the energy and enthusiasm you began the year with!Don't even be thinking about next year, if you haven't completed this year! There is still time in 2013 to get as close to your goals as you can. Don't quit. Even in the month of December. 
  • SET YOUR GOALS FOR THIS MONTH. Although there are only 27 days left in the month, remember that it only takes 21 days to change a habit. That means that if you start now, you will have 22 days before Christmas to develop that habit! If you start tomororw, well, you have exactly 21 days. It's always a good idea to set short-term goals to meet long-term goals. But, that is no new information to you. So, if you have the information, why not put it to use?

  • ELIMINATE NEGATIVES FROM YOUR DIET. So many people try to change everything all at one time. Be realistic with yourself. Yes, I said it. Realistic. Don't say "I am not going to eat any candy at all! I am done!" If you know that you will eat that candy at some point. Don't view your food as your enemy, view it as your fuel. If you know that you usually resort to the office baked goods for your lunch instead of the healthy meal you packed, maybe your goal will be to eat your healthy food from home first. Then, if you want to have a singe piece of a treat, have it. Eliminate as many negative factors as you can before you start to add positive ones. 
  • DON'T NEGLECT YOUR EXERCISE. Now, I am not saying that you have to work out every single day, and never just get a day at home to enjoy with your family. In fact, during this season as the busyness sets in, and the travel takes up more time than you wish, you may actually have less time than usual to hit the gym. That's okay. Work with the time you have whether from home or in the gym.
  • MAXIMIZE YOUR INTENSITY DURING WORKOUTS. If you don't have the time you usually would have to devote to your workout, make sure that you're increasing your intensity to acheive maximum results. If you only have 20-30 minutes, get a hard run in and some pushups/stretches. No workout is worthless if you're working hard; regardless of the time. 
  • GET AN ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER. Find someone from work, or even just a friend in another state to help you manage your stresses, and keep you focused with positive, and encouraging words. Set goals with each other and parameters for what your relationship will look like. Will you hit the gym at the same time after work together, and then call each other after to talk about how good you feel? Or will you simply text each other throughout the day for empowerment and encouragement? You determine who this person would best be for you. If you know you're an emotional eater or stress too easily, do not choose someone you are emotionally sensitive with. If you know you're prone to arguments with  your spouse or best friend, choose someone who is not as intimate with you. That way, you know for a fact that you won't storm off on that person. Whomever you choose, be committed to them as well as your success.
  • JUST SAY NO TO SUGARY DRINKS! Did you know that the average American under-reports their caloric intake? On top of that, on average, Americans consume 20% of their daily calories in liquid form. This means sugary coffees, hot chocolates, whip creams, all of it. If you want to indulge that is ok, but don't excuse yourself into believing that you can have that  Venti Peppermint Chocolate Mocha Quad Shot with  Extra Whipping Cream at no cost to your health. Limit yourself to gatherings, or vow to drink tea instead of coffee for the month. If not, you may do what I do - drink black coffee all but 1-2 days per week (on my weekend).
  • MATCH YOUR ACTIVITY TO YOUR INTAKE. This seems simple. Calories in vs. calories out. Now, I know what you're thinking! Who in their right mind is going to track their calories during Christmas? Well, our health is just as important today as any other day of the year. For me personally, I no longer track my calories on a counter, but I do make sure that I run extra on days that I know I may indulge or have a feast to attend. It's a good way to find balance while still caring about your body.
  • AVOID TEMPTATION. We all know those people who like to seemingly sabotage our goals. You know, the ones who you tell them that you're not drinking, and they offer you a glass of wine? Or the ones who you tell them that you're not eating bread this month, and you come in to find a whole home-baked pumpkin bread just for you on your desk? Do not allow yourself to be guilted. Yes, have manners and be polite, but don't feel like you have to try and eat or drink everything that someone gives you. Listen to your body first and foremost. Avoid these people as much as possible.
  • LIMIT ALCOHOL. If you're like many whom are part of dysfunctional families (all of us in some way), you may be emotionally driven to drink in order to just relax. Be very careful about how you conduct yourself, and the types of drinks you're choosing. My drink of choice is wine or whiskey, but I know some people who choose all of the fruity, flavored alcoholic drinks at the holidays. Limit and control your intake. Be in control of your judgement, mind and your body. 

Most importantly, remember that the season is not about gifts, being careless, wreckless or just plain chaotic. The season is about the real reason. Be and stay blessed. 

With Love,

Premier Benefits: Stop Sitting Around Sick People

As a Health Professional, I interact daily with people who rarely get sick, and also those who get sick far too often. I of course always recommend: proper nutrition, appropriate sleep, and regular exercise. In fact, this is my prescription for myself too, and far more doctors are writing prescriptions for the same thing. Activity and nutrition is absolutely vital to health - that's obvious. 

But, what about when we do get sick? We don't always need a doctor do we? Going to the doctor for a cold that won't go away versus going to the doctor for an annual exam or cancer screening are much different. The problem is that our medical staff is short staffed. If your appointment is at 3:00 pm, you are expected to check-in at 2:45 pm and may not even see your doctor until 4:00pm. This means, you have to leave work early and miss out on pay. Today, I want to share how I now get to see my doctor in a different way - via phone/video! Sounds crazy, but with all advances in technology, it's genius! Did you know...?

 70% of all doctor visits could have been handled via phone/video?

Also Includes Discounts On:

Dental Care
Vision Coverage

With the Affordable Health Care Act, and Universal Healthcare costs, many Americans are finding themselves in positions that are, well, not so affordable. I've personally  heard many people say that they would rather take the required fine for not purchasing insurance then pay their insurance premium. There are two sides to every story, but the truth be told: 


As a business owner myself, I find that it is difficult to make time to see the doctor, and pay out of pocket office visit fees for a simple infection or cough; especially being that I am young, healthy and have supplemental coverage. Financially, it hurts both me, and my business. If you work full-time, attend school, or have a jam packed schedule, you can relate. Even IF I am forced to enroll in Universal Health Care, what if my doctor is overbooked or I simply can't afford to take time to go? 

While having this conversation with a respected friend, he told me about a program in which will cover me while I take the time to make my decisions about my personal healthcare. Not only is it an affordable supplemental coverage, I can actually use a Tell-A-Doc over the phone or video conference a doctor directly for minor illnesses. On top of that, he will write a prescription if necessary and fax it to my pharmacy. 

I immediately thought about my best friend who is a stay at home mom on another supplemental program. Between all her domestic responsibilities and having a 7 month old, it's hard for her to focus on her own health. Instead of loading up my niece (her baby), she can see her doctor directly from home. It's not just working individuals, but also stay-at-home men and women who will benefit. 

You see, most healthy young people, between 18-35 don't visit the doctor too often. This is what the Affordable Health Care Act is banking on for the funding of the new system. The younger people are required to pay in to the system, but likely won't use their physician as much. Not just that, I have several clients and family members over the age of 60 years old who's premiums have also gone up! This is not affordable for any of us. 

What if there was another solution for those who find health insurance unafforable, or even for those who already have health insurance, but want a supplement program? There is! 

Premier Benefits is my new best friend.

Premier Benefits allows 24/7 Access to Doctors AND Major Healthcare Discounts.

Team No Sleep

I know most of you who know me and clicked this blog, are dying to know what crazy idea I`m coming up with now. Either that, or you yourself are a part of our #TeamNoSleep and #NoDaysOff movement , so you're looking for inspiration or justification to continue NOT SLEEPING. 

Not only is no sleep a requirement for success, but it now a movement and a fad. From Twitter, to clothing lines, to everyday communication. It's a positive movement, but how do our bodies benefit or suffer?

Today, I am going to express myself openly and be very raw about my personal struggle with my "Will to Succeed" and my sleeping patterns. We all know that each of us gets only 24 hours in a day. Oprah, Ted Turner, Elvis, Thomas Edison, and everyone else past and present who is deemed "successful" gets the same amount of hours as we do. We also know that success goes beyond time management and efficiency, but actually cuts into number of hours we have. All successful people sacrifice sleep.

I'd like to share some pros and cons of no sleep versus sleep. I also want your feedback on why you get proper sleep, or why you continuously sacrifice sleep. Here are the pros and cons. Ready?

             PROS                                                     CONS


More hours to work toward my dream                                             Little repair/recovery time
Fit double workouts per day into my schedule                                  Homrone irregulation
Relate to other #TeamNoSleep 'ers                                                  Less connection to #TeamNoSleep 'ers
Keep up my social media                                                                 Less networking on Social Media
Rarely ever miss a new topic or forum                                              Miss too much new information
Reading all the blogs I`m subscribed to.                                            Don't get to read all of my blogs
Pride in my busyness                                                                        Less physical energy 
High mental energy (will to succeed)                                                 Guilt from not being productive enough.
Great discipline                                                                                 Huge mental stress 


Repair/Recovery Optimized                                                             Increased need for time management
Higher Metabolism                                                                          Less time to achieve everything
Better Focus in daily tasks                                                               Decreased demand of will to push
More physical energy                                                                      Less flexibility
Required less mental strain                                                               Have to be in bed early (nightowl)
Improved physical appearance (beauty)                                           Feelings of guilt for not being the best

As you can see, off of the top of my head I have been considering the PROS/CONS for both: PROPER SLEEP or TEAM NO SLEEP. It is a continuous battle when you want to be successful. You know your body needs sleep, but you don't want to get lazy and over-indulge. While you must listen to your body when you need sleep, you can't sleep on opportunity. For those who are stronger in mind than in body, you can relate. However, for those stronger in body - Athletes, you can probably weigh out for you that sleep is absolutely essential for your performance. 

For me, this is a struggle. The last 3-4 years I have run on an average of 4 hours of sleep per night. However, I have found that my body requires sleep during this season. Now, I'm up to 8 hours some nights. I struggle with weighing my pros and cons here. For many of us, busyness is an idol in which we gratify and crave. I know for me it is. On the other hand, as a health professional, and someone with Thyroid Disease, I have found that working out less, but sleeping more has actually helped me lose excess body fat. While I could go on and on, I want your opinion.

To all of you TEAM NO SLEEP ' ers I want your feedback on this one! Why do you sacrifice sleep? Is it because of an opportunity, or is it daily and year round for you? Please feel free to add your PROS/CONS and share your struggle. 


Share your struggle. No one is perfect. We ALL need inspiration.

EVENT SUCCESS: Inspire Me Mommy! Scholarship Fundraiser Zumbathon

Inspire Me Mommy! Scholarship Fundraiser ZUMBATHON was a HUGE SUCCESS!




Attendees: 78
Donors: So far 90
Amount Raised to Date: $850
Goal: $1200
Donations are accepted through October 1st via mail or phone. Credit cards are accepted.
What began as a mere vision to help our local community in Reno, became a reality in less then 3 weeks! Within 3 weeks, this event was organized, donated to, and marketed successfully.

Inspiration for Scholarship:

While teaching my Inspire Me Mommy! 6 Week Challenge (fitness classes), I realized the need for assistance to parents within the community, who are currently working and in school.  As I interacted with mothers and their children, I realized how fortunate their children were to have their parents actively involed in their lives, and have a positive influence. Our motto for the program is "Building stronger women to build stronger children and communities." Afterall, children mimic their parents' behaviors, and learn healthy habits at a young age.

I do not yet have children myself, but grew up estranged from my parents, as a run away, a high school dropout, and did this because I was raised in an abusive environment. I want to be able to give back to the community and help build stronger women, children and communities. I believe if we can reach parents, and have a positive influence in their lives, then we can empower their children through action. We aim to empower one family at a time! Education is a good place to state, regardless of ones' past.

How the Scholarship Fundraiser Manifested:

One weekend I was floating the Truckee River and enjoying time with my dearest friends. My friend Vicky came, and I told her my vision for my business Inspired By Purpose, and that I wanted to be able to give out a scholarship. I told her the time wasn't right because I didn't have the money to give it out, but I would like to be able to host an event maybe at the beginning of 2014 to raise money.

She excitedly said "Let's do it when your program ends on September 6th!" I said "Really? There isn't enough time!" She said "The time is always NOW! Let's get to work!" So, we did. We hustled hard and the result was a phenominally successful event! In less then 3 weeks, the vision manifested into reality through SACRIFICE, DONATIONS, DISCIPLINE, AND HARD WORK.

The only means of media and marketing that we had was Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, ticket sales, and word of mouth. Through this, we were able to have 85 people SHOW UP to our event. This doesn't include how many people were reached, and could not come that day. The community of Reno joined this movement in order to support change!


Sponsors and Donors:

Everyone who committed to volunteer their time, energy and resources is appreciated more then words can express! Every single person who instructed, gave to this cause, and helped with setup, clean up, catering, food pick up, providing food, water, and even making signs, and managing different tables did a magificent job. No one asked for ANYTHING in return, and they were just happy to be an integral part of it.

My co-host and Zumba Instructor: Virginia Janet (Vicky)
Zumba Instructors:
Kathy Kennedy
Leslie Brown
Nolfa Aida Inostroza-Arias
Andrea Tibaduiza
Victoria Monroe (Amy)
Karen Lima
Nettie "Coco" White
Patricia Franklin-Gallimore (Pat)

I especially have to thank all Zumba Instructors for coming to rehearsal, selling tickets to their classes, and helping set up the facility. Did I mention everyone donated their own products to this event?

Our sponsors gave unselfishly. Sierra Strength and Speed allowed us to use their facility without charge just to support the cause.

The catering company gave, even during their busiest season, and met up with me at 11pm because he was so swamped during Burning Man and the Balloon Races. He did not ask a single dollar for hundreds of dollars worth of food and raffle prizes.

The mommies in my Inspire Me Mommy! 6 Week Challenge all made signage for the event, and also hand wrote out gratitude rock cards explaining the significance of the donations, and the Law of Attraction. They also picked up food, offered to donate additional money, and lent tables and fans for the event. They even got up in front of everyone, and spoke to the crowd.

My amazing boyfriend "B" and our amazing best friend Brandon "OneShot" Cook, ran errands with me until midnight, vacumed and cleaned the facility, managed the gratitude rock station, set out all the hot and cold foods during the event, and helped me with raffle prizes. They also went to the Truckee River with me and hand selected gratitude rocks in which we boiled personally.

Special thanks to "Gatorz" family here in Reno. Shorty-T and his brother, Terrel came out to show support after their Homeless Drive last week! Diversity at it's finest.We are making a difference together in this communnity.

ALL volunteers There were SO MANY of you it's hard to name you all. From managing the cash and ticket entries (Pat), to making sure everyone signed the Liability Waiver and Roster for the event (Krista), to the videographer, photographer, and everyone else who made this event possible!

We ALL prayed for each individual attending the event, and did not fail to realize the significance of helping people change their lives!

Not only did instructors generously donate their time (all 8 of them!), but they also donated bracelets, and tee shirts as swag prizes. They also allowed us to sell apparel for additional donations!

Nail Trix By Scott
My personal nail man for over 4 years now, is a strong business man, and generously donated 4 gift certificates for salon services to all of the momnies in my Inspire Me Mommy! program. He did this because we have a working referral system, and out of the kindness of his heart.
