Olympian Michael Phelps to Be Featured on Packages of Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes(R) and Kellogg’s Corn Flakes(R) Cereal

I have a pretty good idea that this will have a huge impact on Kellogg’s revenues as kids clamor to purchase these boxes of cereal with their hero on them.  I think having heroes is awesome as long as they represent the values that we want to see emulated in our children. 

I do have a problem with Kelloggs though.  The boxes of cereal Phelps will be featured on are all sugary, high fructose laiden junk food. 

As an advocate of health and fitness, Phelps should’ve insisted on being placed on boxes of healthier cereals to encourage children to make better choices.  I’m rather disappointed in him. 

“As an Official Sponsor of the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team and a proud sponsor of Phelps, it is only fitting that Kellogg Company feature this world-class athlete on its iconic boxes of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes and Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes cereals,” said Marta Cyhan, Vice President, Global Promotions, Kellogg Company. “Michael embodies the values behind our Frosted Flakes Earn Your Stripes(TM) program. He knows that winning is not just about the glory that comes with gold medals, but about good sportsmanship, working hard and being your best.”

We know very well that olympians do not make Frosted Flakes and Corn Flakes a regular part of their diet and I find it rather disgusting that Kellogg’s would stoop so low to increase their sales than by using our innocent children.  Childhood obesity is a major problem in our company and its the sleezy marketing of these big companies that are to blame.

This past weekend was a whirlwind of events for me.  I was coming off of a majorly awesome week of events and felt amazing.  On Saturday afternoon my band, Spoken For, played for the Special Olympics at our towns Covered Bridge Festival.  It was a lot of fun.  On Sunday morning, we played worship music for the New Life Lutheran church.  It is so worthwhile to use the talents God has given me for His purpose.  It makes this temporary world so much more fulfilling to live in.

One of the songs that I sing is entitled, “Never Gonna Steal My Joy” and it discusses how circumstances and events in this life will happen, but we have the real love of Jesus Christ and therefore, nothing in this world is going to steal our joy. 

When we step away from ourselves and look at the bigger picture, the troubles and tribulations of this life seem miniscule and unworthy of our worry. 

I am thankful for each new day and what discoveries await me.

My Success Coaches
My Success Coaches

I have to admit that this past weekend was one of the most exciting and exhausting experiences of my life.  I participated this year in a coaching program that completely revamped things in my business but also gave me even more confidence than I thought I could ever possess.

It was awesome to actually meet my coaches in person.  They are great guys and very successful in the fitness business.

It really got me thinking about how important it is to have coaches or mentors in your life.  You should really surround yourself with people who are living and breathing the lifestyle you wish to have.  I have mentors in my Christian walk, in motherhood and in business.

Look for those that not only talk the talk but walk the walk. 

If you are looking for a mentor in fitness, look no further.  My online coaching program is your ticket to finally getting in shape and making a difference in the health of your family.  I am living the fitness lifestyle everyday and know the struggles that moms face.  I homeschool four children while running my fitness business and it is definitely a challenge. 

Join me and the other women in our online coaching program featured in PFP Magazine and make permanent changes today.
