Life has been a bit crazy in the Voris house the past couple of weeks.
Two weeks ago, I was in Las Vegas for the Team Beachbody Coach Summit (see my previous post for the awesome details), then just days later my three girls were off on adventures of their own in Ireland, Austria and Boston!
Our oldest daughter, Jenna, is currently in Ireland with the Indianapolis Youth Chorale. So far she has sung in St. Mary's cathedral in Kilarney, kissed the Blarney Stone, and sung an impromptu concert at an Irish wedding.
Our youngest, Jessy, is in Austria with the Indianapolis Children's Choir. She has toured the sites of the Sound of Music...and eaten a lot of schnitzel. :)
Last Thursday, my husband, Jeff, and I flew to Boston with our middle daughter, Josie, to check her in for a 5+week summer intensive ballet program at the Boston Ballet. Saturday had some challenging moments, especially at final drop off with Josie. Growing up is hard , especially for parents. Thankfully, my husband and I had a nice distraction with an opportunity to see the Zac Brown Band in Fenway Park Saturday evening. It was a rare and very timely date night that came together at the last moment.
Jessy returns from Austria Tuesday night and Jenna, from Ireland, on Wednesday night. It'll be great to have 4 of the 5 JV's back under one roof...at least for a little while.
To parents of little ones....on those days when you think you might pull your hair out from parenting, close your eyes, take a breath, and truly realize that it goes by so fast. Enjoy your kiddos in all their toddler tantrum, diaper changing, preschool/elementary school, home all summer long glory!!
It still blows my mind that we are able to provide these types of opportunities for our family -- and I've never been shy about sharing the fact that these "wow, is this my life" moments are all because of Team Beachbody. Having been able to build a business and career WHILE inspiring others to become more healthy is an honor and responsibility I don't take lightly - thank YOU for allowing me to be part of your journey and for being part of mine!
Being part of the Team Beachbody Summit for the 5th year was AMAZING! Live workouts with the best of best fitness trainers, inspiring speakers and life-changing moments. Here is a sneak peek at what I recently experienced at Team Beachbody Coach Summit 2014.

It's hard to believe that the past 18 years have gone by so quickly. It seems just like yesterday we took a picture of our oldest daughter, Jenna, holding a sign saying "I'm going to kindergarten!" . This past weekend, I looked on, full of pride, as she graduated from Carmel High School, Class of 2014.
On her first day of school, I never dreamed that our family would be where we are today. My husband is a college football coach, I'm a high school teacher turned fitness professional...rewarding careers in a lot of ways...just not financially!!
I think the dream of every parent is to be able to be able to provide opportunities for their children, to truly a craft a life that helps their children develop into the amazing person they are meant to be. While teaching is my passion and coaching is what my husband was put here on earth to do, those careers meant we lived paycheck to paycheck, most months barely getting by. The thought that on her high school graduation, I'd be able to hire one of Jenna's favorite singers, Jon McLaughlin, to perform at her graduation party never even crossed my mind. We just didn't see how we could dream big dreams like that!
Then I made a decision. We all make a lot of decisions each day. Most of the time we don't know the possibility that lies in one small decision. When I said, "Yes I'll be a coach" 6 years ago - I truly didn't realize that I was saying, "YES I CAN take our family on vacation - multiple times a year. That might seem inconsequential...but we hadn't been on a family vacation in 5 years. I was saying, "YES I CAN help our daughters find and follow THEIR passions. Travel to Europe with the choir? YES. March in the Rose Bowl with the CHS Marching Band? YES. Spend the summer at the Boston Ballet? YES. I was saying, "YES I CAN help others become healthier, happier individuals and help them live their healthiest life!"
After once living paycheck to paycheck, we are now financially secure, saving for retirement and setting our children up for their futures. And it's all because of one small decision. I've made no secret of it. We are here because of Beachbody.
Whenever someone asks, "Why are you a Beachbody Coach?" my answer is this - I do what I do, so I can say 'YES" to my family...and I will forever be grateful to Team Beachbody for blessing us with such a wonderful gift.
Married to a college football coach, 3 daughters, Beachbody Master Trainer and Coach, Disney fanatic, aspire to inspire, serve others, and be a force of passion. Meet Julie!
