Rules for a happy marriage...and a cancer update

Rules for a happy marriage.πŸ’•

1. Make your spouse a priority.
2. Never yell at each other unless the house is on fire.
3. Apologize if you're wrong.
4. Date night weekly.
5. Never bring up mistakes from the past.
6. Neglect the world rather than each other.
7. Never go to sleep angry.
8. At least once a day complement your spouse.
9. Listen carefully. 
10. Believe in each other.

I'm not sure if you are following me on Facebook or Instagram (@jendelvaux), but as you may know , Darren has brain cancer.  He was diagnosed in 2009 and although his diagnosis was grim, Darren proved the Dr's wrong and has been doing awesome!!!  Unfortunately, we found Darren on Friday evening collapsed facedown outside of the bathroom. At this point Doctors are pretty positive it was a seizure. The MRI appears to be normal, which is good, but he is need of another (and longer) EEG, as he has experienced another seizure since arriving at the hospital.

So, I type this from the hospital - exhausted, scared, and looking for answers! Prayers are appreciated!!

SOOOO basically my eating the last couple days has been a TRAIN WRECK!! I've been going from not eating to stress eating!! AND I haven't gotten any workouts in or sleep... SO my plan is to FULLY get back on track...I need it for ME and for Darren!!  You with me?  I am starting a new BOOTCAMP on Monday - nutrition, workouts, accountability, and FUN.  I NEEEED this as a release from the stress...and would love you to join me.  Interested??? Message me TODAY!

Need some motivation?

Since today is #MotivationalMonday I decided to share this post to hopefully inspire youπŸ‘ŠπŸ». First of all, I can NOT believe that I am sharing this picture. I've shared a before/after picture of myself before but this one is even harder... I had TOTALLY let myself go in every area. I was a mom & wife FIRST & put myself on the back burner.... CAN YOU RELATE?? πŸ™‹πŸ»
I think about that ONE person who is in the same situation I was in... πŸ™‹πŸ» If I could just reach HER, it's all worth itπŸ’•
Yes, the picture on the left is me about 12 years ago. People assume that I was always small🀷🏻‍♀️... Nope, unfortunately I got to a point in my life where I wasn't taking care of me.... I was focused on taking care of everyone else around me instead. I wasn’t eating healthy or working out to my full potential! I was lacking confidence, energy, and just didn't feel that great about myself....When I saw the picture on the left, I was shocked and knew I had to make a change immediately. 
Thankfully I had started my fitness journey about 6 months prior to discovering my husband had brain cancer. Fitness has been my outlet, it's where I can release my stress & worries. It's time for ME, where I can forget about the difficulties around me. 

I now have confidence, I feel AMAZING, I believe in ME!! People assume transformations are only on the outside.... But the transformations that happen on the inside are incredible!
Are you ready to make a change?? I can help!! πŸ™ŒπŸ» The new program is working out ONLY 4 days a week, 30 minute workouts!! Anyone has time for that!! You want in?? Message me directly!! ❤️

Apple Oat Greek Yogurt Muffin recipe

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour*
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats**
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 medium-sized apple, peeled, cored, and grated
  • 1/2 cup raisins

-Preheat your oven to 350F and prepare a muffin pan by spraying the cavities with cooking spray or lining them with paper liners. Set aside.

-In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.

-Lightly beat the egg in a separate bowl. Whisk in the yogurt, applesauce, brown sugar, vanilla, and grated apple, stirring until well-combined

-Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing gently until just combined. Fold in the raisins.

-Divide the batter evenly among the 12 muffin cups, filling them almost to the top. Add a sprinkle of oats if desired.

-Bake the muffins for 20-22 minutes, or until top is firm to the touch and toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Allow the muffins to cool in pan for ~10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store them in an air-tight container for up to 5 days, or freeze them for up to 3 months.


* You can also use a mix of all-purpose and whole wheat. I'd suggest 1/2 cup of AP and 1/2 cup  of whole wheat.
** Do not use quick oats. They are too fine and will dry out the muffins too much.

10 reasons to workout today!


1. I will have more confidence.
2. I will be one step closer to my fitness goal.
3. I will be more mentally alert.
4. I will be happier.
5. I will have a desire to eat healthy foods.
6. I will be more motivated to workout tomorrow.
7. I will burn more calories the rest of the day.
8. I will have an increased amount of energy.
9. I will be doing something for me.
10. I will be healthier.

Working out is my therapy and my time to rejuvenate my soul! I always leave a workout feeling amazing, maybe a little sore ;), but mentally always refreshed!  I wasn't necessarily always this way...although I would work out, I never worked out to my full potential and then would reward myself with Twizzlers and pizza when I got home. Let's just say that the changes (both mentally and physically) were not happening then either! Do you struggle with motivation or knowing how to push yourself so you FEEL amazing? I can help you discover the inner #girlieboss that you have!

In fact, I signed up to coach when I was at my heaviest and not at my best state of mind. I surrounded myself with others who would support me, help me, encourage me, and inspire me! I am so glad that I did!  I don't think this 'coaching' thing gets a good rap and I'm going to change that! Coaching is for anyone - to work the business or to simply inspire yourself! It is to surround yourself with others who are also searching for the same thing; a tribe of ladies to hold you accountable and help you in all areas! I welcomed 6 new coaches already this month...will you be my next one? Ready for that change?  Join my FREE glimpse into what it really entails HERE

National ice cream day, anyone??

Yes, I post often about working out & eating clean (80/20 ruleπŸ™ŒπŸ»), BUT it's soooooooo much more than that!! And, when it is #nationalicecreamday - you splurge a bit.... ;)  Ya with me on that one? 
πŸ™ŒπŸ» I totally get this might not be for you... Not everyone wants to get in shape, eat healthy (80/20 rule for the win!) and have an online community of support. But I would be doing a HUGE disservice if I didn't share my life changing journey with you!
When I said YES to my coach 9 years ago, I was overweight, lacking confidence, was just going through the motions of life... Can you relate? I figured I would get a little healthy, but never dreamed of what would actually happen.
πŸ”ΈMore energy
πŸ”ΈMore Confidence
πŸ”ΈA community of people just like me with the same goals in mind
πŸ”ΈFriendships that I will treasure forever
πŸ”ΈHelp to transform lives of other women that were just like me 8 years ago.
πŸ”ΈA gift for my kids - happy, healthy, confident parents
I had no idea the impact that 1 decision I made 9 years ago could have! My goal in life is to leave a positive mark in this world. To inspire, motivate, uplift, empower other women to live life to their fullest.  What about you?

Empowerment anyone?

Happy Tuesday!
Can I take a quick second to share this with you??...

I never felt like I was part of something before... Do you ever feel that way?? Becoming a coach (even though I had a TON of fears), gave me this community of people that were so positive and had such excitement for life!! 
There are so many amazing benefits to coaching... getting your health on track, motivating others, eTc.. BUT the #1 for me is my #Sisterhood family!! There's so much love, support, & laughter!! 

I've been planning out my next challenge group (which is going to be OFF THE HOOK AMAZING! Have you joined yet?? Why NOT!??!  Join here!) and it seriously brightens my day. Each challenge group is filled with the most amazing, supportive, EMPOWERING women. It's like a sisterhood of ultimate trust and accountability.  

A few tricks up my sleeve for this group:
- weekly giveaways
-weekly personal development shares/insights/book recommendations/talks
-fitness tips and tricks
-nutritional, including my favorite TOTTIE recipes!  
-motivation and support from me
-my favorite recipes and healthy insights
-mini challenges to keep us inspired and seeing results

The best part? YES, getting healthy and feeling our best is amazing, but it's truly the connecting and friendship building. It's MORE than just health. It's about supporting and encouraging others in all areas of our life.  So, if you are feeling like you need a group of ladies who always have your back, want you to be your best, need a place for support & encouragement, look no further. I can't WAIT to get to know you!
