The Other Side of Fear

Everyday, You have a choice. You could take the easy road and life will stay the same.. OR chose to do the difficult things...the things that scare you, push you, force you to grow...and create a life of freedom.

As a introvert, the thought of talking to people in person SCARES me. 
The thought of starting a blog OVERWHELMED me. The thought of doing Shaun T’s new CIZE program INTIMIDATES {and scared} me!
BUT everyday...I will visualize a scale. On the one side, I put all of my fears, doubts, insecurities...all of the "what could go wrongs". 
That side represented staying the same. Staying comfortable. 
On the other side...I will put all of the "SCARY" things. The uncomfortable things.
One that side, I imagined the world conspiring in my FAVOR. How incredible could my life be if I was just willing to take a chance?
EVERYDAY you will need to make a choice.

Stay the same? Or venture in to new {scary} territory. 
Stay miserable? or take a chance?
Stay in my bubble? 
Or be willing to put myself out there?
Day by Day….The Choices will start to add up on one side of the scale or the other…. YOU DECIDE..and Take MASSIVE ACTION

You might not have the courage to choose the "scary" thing EVERYDAY. But over time, the scary starts to become the EXCITING as you build your dream choice-by-choice 

I hope this encourages you to go after your goals today and leave the fears behind!

Declaring my Independence Day! Goal Setting

I made the bold choice of canceling any and all plans for this Fourth of July weekend. I wanted quiet time to review the things that I needed to change in my life. Feeling like I've hit bottom in almost every area of my life with the exception of my treasured friendships.

I Declare my Independence Day...Starting today..with some serious goal setting!

After a super rough couple of years, financially not making ends meet, having to ask for financial help. Watching my Mother's life winding down in an extremely painful gut wrenching way. Passing away far too soon after neglecting and ignoring her health issues. Always joking that she would lie down till the feeling passed if she ever felt inspired to exercise.

I realized that I needed to start managing myself after putting myself on the back burning for FAR TOO LONG.  This is my Independence Day...Day One of the "Goal Setting Express"!

There are so many guru who teach this topic really well! One of them is Chalene Johnson and her book "Push". She calls it that because she has you set push goals. It's really enjoyable. Also she teaches you how to reverse engineer those goals that seem unattainable. 

I have found it easier to set one and five year goals.....BUT then I circle back and make quarterly goals for that first year. So that month by month I need to get certain parts accomplished to reach the overall goal. 

I set goals in each of Five Categories:  Emotional, Spiritual, Financial, Physical, and Educational. 

Even if you hit your target within 25%, or 50%, or 75% or more.....You've accomplished a lot! 

Without goals....I feel like a ship without a rudder...just destined to drift aimlessly. 

Set some goals and change your life!

It's come time to face myself

It's time to come face to face with MYSELF.
It's easy to pretend like you have it all together. I hope I never come across like that, I TRY -- but there is always a closet or a drawer stuffed with junk (metaphorically or literally) that I'm pretending doesn't exist (a la Monica Gellar). I struggle every single day in different ways and I truly believe I've been in a darker season of my life in the last couple years -- but I've been to DARKER PLACES, and God always, always, always is faithful and uses those seasons to lead us to the brightest light.

Becoming your personal best for plus size women

What I've come to learn and appreciate about Beachbody & the community that we are able to create as individuals and groups is that this isn't about PERFECTION, and I'm living the lesson as I slowly begin to unwrap myself again.

It's been too long since I've considered myself a “fit person” and I just didn’t want to share that because I've been afraid. 
+ I've been afraid to step out into the light and be judged. 
+ I've been afraid to admit that I haven't valued myself enough to put my own health and happiness first.
+ I've been afraid to be truly seen.
+ I've been afraid to confront the demons that I have about my own basic safety due to a traumatic kidnapping and sexual assault when I was little. 
+I’ve been afraid to share these things publicly.

My throat is closing and my eyes are welling up with tears, but it's time to restart my journey and share it WITHOUT FEAR of looking like a failure, like I wasn't strong enough or "committed enough" in the first place and to RE-INSPIRE MYSELF and others ... but myself first and foremost.

I know there are hundreds of you reading this that may never click COMMENT on this blog, but feel afraid in some way to recommit. It may be to your faith, to your fitness, to your DREAM, to your relationship, to your friendships, to your family or to just simply loving yourself for EXACTLY who God made you to be. I can't let you give up, and I can't let the fear of judgement from negative people (who are out there, loud and proud) stop us from reaching the heights we deserve to reach and becoming the people we were designed to become.
Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.

I'm RENEWING my dream to feel STRONG and HEALTHY above all else and honor my body first and foremost so I can show up to be the best me for my Creator and the people I am blessed enough to have in my life.
I URGE you today to RENEW YOUR DREAM TOO. No matter where you are, it's time to unwrap that dream in your heart.  Link arms with me and let’s get started..fill out the app HERE

The Bombshell Tribe's Mission Statement

REMEMBER THE STAR FISH STORY... It matters to that one!

A young girl was walking along a beach upon which thousands of starfish had been washed up during a terrible storm. When she came to each starfish, she would pick it up, and throw it back into the ocean. People watched her with amusement.
She had been doing this for some time when a man approached her and said, “Little girl, why are you doing this? Look at this beach! You can’t save all these starfish. You can’t begin to make a difference!”

The girl seemed crushed, suddenly deflated. But after a few moments, she bent down, picked up another starfish, and hurled it as far as she could into the ocean. Then she looked up at the man and replied very solemnly, “Well, I made a difference to that one!”

love that story and find it very meaningful. 

My Mission statement for The Bombshell Tribe is.... simply that everyone matters. 

This business combines my absolute love of helping others get started on their path to health and fitness!

A little bit about my story.................. 

My Mother passed away far too early due to a not taking care of herself. I sadly, was overwhelmed with her health issues and put my own life on the "back burner" I realized I had been making that same choice. 

A couple years before her demise I had joined Beachbody and oh my gosh, loved it, had a team of amazing people. I was in such better shape and of course drank Shakeology everyday. I felt so good and looked better! During this time my Mother started going downhill fast and it ended with her dying in a lot of pain and suffering. 

Continued poor nutrition and refusing to exercise ……This is why we lose our Mother’s way too early.

After suffering thru the loss of my Mother. My grieving was so soul crushing that I stepped away from Beachbody. I was unable to get myself out of the deep crippling depression. I was unable to work, and had to force myself to do simple tasks.  I came to discover you have to find your own voice. You’re a very different person in a different place when you come out on the other side.

I rejoined Team Beachbody as a Coach in Feb of 2015, under the number one Coach in the whole company Melanie Mitro. I had been watching her for a long while and really connected with her, and how she helps others thru Facebook Challenge groups. I finally felt that I could and should get started on the path of improving my own health and fitness with my renewed passion after being in such a dark place. I was seeing the light again! 

Helping others get healthy absolutely lights me up inside!  Every single woman to me represents my mom as a person that I can help. I can help them with Shakeology and one of Beachbody amazing complete Fitness programs. I can show them the love, by linking arms, providing motivation, accountability, meal plans and lots of fun!

Everyone matters…..absolutely!

If I can just help one awesomesause woman improve her health and fitness in my Challenge groups then that will be time will spent.

Top 5 Tips to get started researching your Family Tree

Here are my Top 5 Tips on how to get started
    Are you a beginner to Family Tree Research?
  1. Purchase the Family Tree Maker Program by —This is your organizational software tool and the most user friendly
  2. Get yourself a big 3 ring binder you will want to put your hard copy print outs in it. Create a File folder on your Computers desktop to put any photos or files you discover
  3. Start filling in the Family Tree Maker Program with any information that you do know for as far back as you know it. Example-location and estimated dates
  4. Google, yes…seriously google your grandparents and great grandparents names ….so many libraries are putting collections online…you never know what you’ll discover. 
  5. You’ll need to make the decision if you want to send for (pay for) some record                              A.  Death and Birth records from the State. This can be done online.                                              B.  If you know when they died and you don't currently have them in your possession all of their Death Announcements in their local paper. Try Google, or write their local library to see who is housing the collection of old newspapers.             
(I have done this numerous times over the years. There are so many benefits for this, and I will go into more depth about it in a future blog post)

Feel free to ask questions in the comment section below

*Truly sometimes you can find information so fast and furious that you need to get organized…the sole reason for Step 1 and 2. 

I'm so excited for you as your start on this journey! You're going to find so many cool things! 

Amy Amidei
CEO The Bombshell Tribe


One time a man was walking along the beach and say another man fishing in the surf with a bait bucket beside him. As he drew closer, he saw that the bait bucket had no lid and had live crabs inside.

"Why don't you cover your bait bucket so the crabs won't escape?", he said.

"You don't understand.", the man replied, "If there is one crab in the bucket it would surely crawl out very quickly.

However, when there are many crabs in the bucket, if one tries to crawl up the side, the others grab hold of it and pull it back down so that it will share the same fate as the rest of them."

So it is with people sometimes. If one tries to do something different, get better grades, improve herself, escape her environment, or dream big dreams, other people will try to drag her back down to share their fate.

Moral of the story: Ignore the crabs. Charge ahead and do what is right for you. It may not be easy and you may not succeed as much as you like, but you will NEVER share the same fate as those never try.

Even more importantly: DON'T PULL PEOPLE BACK IN if you're not ready to get out.

Don't be a crab smile emoticon

Do you ever feel like your life is a living, breathing LIFE LESSON

Perhaps I can credit it to the last three years since my Mother’s death as being utterly painful, emotionally & financially, and the last year of really being waist deep in personal development (see my blog post---

Brene brown, Lip Sync Battle, ancestry, WDYTYA, genealogy, familytreemaker

 I have mentors who teach me to see failure as our greatest assets and sometimes I’m in a constant battle of surrendering to God and His purpose (while showing up and working for everything I've asked for) with a huge sense of grace and forgiveness for myself -- after all if HE can forgive me, who am I to withhold it from myself?
Often I find that the moments of GROWTH are actually in messy conversations, in missteps, in disappointments and in failed attempts. It sucks. It doesn't feel good -- but we are robbing ourselves of the lesson in it all. GROWTH is not always -- if ever -- in the VICTORIES. They are invisible. They are not celebrated. They weigh heavy on your heart. They are the thoughts you cannot shake. But when you DO conquer them -- you OWN THEM, they are all yours, they are personal, they are private, they are etched deep in your mind and heart and being.
We can be so ignorant that we shift our eyes to focus on self pity and pessimism, that we miss the shining golden trophy of experience and "lesson learned".⠀
There are moments that make or break us, and we make the DECISION to take a step back and find the lesson, or wallow in the failure. I choose LIFE LESSONS every time and I would challenge you to do the same -- whatever your mess at the moment.
Good news. 
1. You're growing.
2. No one will probably ever be harder on you than you.
3. Failure is TEMPORARY. Quitting is forever. There is no where to go but UP
4. The hottest mess experience you will ever live through will be the VERY story you share in your keynote speech in front of thousands.
5. I believe in myself even if NO ONE gets what I am attempting to do

J K Rowling said that rock bottom was the very foundation on which she choose to rebuild her life. She had a vision, worked like a obsessed person, suffered rejection from many publishers, had to rewrite her manuscript many times…and the rest is HISTORY 

****Oh yeah, she is worth more than the Queen now and has done HUGE things for charity organizations***  #girlboss

The Coolest Things I discovered while researching my Family Tree

  • My great Uncle bought a newspaper printing office that was previously owned by Mark Twain

  • One of my distant Cousin because friends with the Author Dr. Suess and he dedicated a book called, Scrambled Eggs Super to her and her children

  • My Paternal Great Grandmother has a twin brother and I was able to share that information with my Grandmother a few years before she passed.

  • I was able completely research my Mom’s father who was killed in action in WWII and that helped her so much emotionally. It helped her finally feel connected to her deceased father before her own death. 

  • I uncovered the Church which still exists in County Kerry, Ireland that my 7 generations back Grandparents were married in. I visited and attended Mass in that church in Sept of 2011, and it was magical. 

  • I have met online over 40 distant Cousins via posting on Message Boards and we share our researching information.

  • I discovered the name and the photo of the Ship that My g-g-g-great came over from Ireland during the Potato Famine. 

  •  I have added thousands to my family tree

  •  I have gone to the extra expense of obtaining birth, death, marriage records. 

Pretty freakin cool huh! You can easily do this too! I can't even convey how cool these findings were, and finding out all about each person and meaningful! I look forward to helping you get started with a bunch of tips!
