Yes! Kids Eating Healthy Can Be Fun!

    By Kelly Songy Nelson In elementary school, I ate in the school’s cafeteria. As I moved into high school, I became a sack lunch kid. We’ve all been there, you whip out your lunch and all of a sudden it’s like the opening bell just sounded on the New York Stock Exchange. I’ll give you my orange for your Jello; you gonna eat that mac-n-cheese? Fish sticks…I LOVE FISH STICKS (sure beats the tuna casserole that my Mom packed) I’m sure if Moms could be flies on the wall each day, they’d just throw in the towel when it comes to packing their little ones a healthy lunch! But it doesn’t have to be that way! Your kid could be known as “The Untradable”. For those of you who follow Jimmy and I on social media, you know that the Nelson household is a healthy one! No dairy, fresh organic…

How to Eat Healthy When You Have No Time!

I don’t have time to eat healthy! By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson Lately I have been hearing this issue come up with my clients, friends, and family. People who want to improve their nutrition, but feel like they don’t have time to prepare healthy meals when our society has become overrun with fast processed options that seem more convenient. Our lives seem to get busier and busier each year. I know mine does, I thought I was a busy guy THEN my wife and I welcomed our first child into the world this past year! Talk about a busy world immediately getting a little more crowded. Yet, throughout it all I have been able to use a few steps to continue my healthy eating routine. (I didn’t even gain sympathy weight when my wife was pregnant. For all the Dads out there, you know how challenging this can be!) First, you have to make ‘Eating Clean’…

How a Busy Working Mom Finds Time for Herself, Family, Eating Healthy and Losing Weight

In the words of Jesse Spanno…”There’s Never Any Time!!!!!!!” by Kelly Nelson “How do you do it?” That’s a question that I get a lot.  I am a full time working Mom who has managed to get rid of her baby weight, find time for workouts, eating right, family time and working as a Beachbody Coach, but balance it all out with date nights and cheat meals! I have to say that it’s not easy and it’s something that I struggle with on a daily basis.   Asher, our precious angel, turned one in February and the past year has been a year of challenges, change and growth (but not on my waistline!) With the overwhelming responsibilities that come along with being a new Mom, it’s often easy to put ourselves on the back burner and just focus on the rest of the family.  I was very guilty of that….
