New Year, New You

2016
Every new year we set our New Year’s Resolutions…What’s yours this year?  Have you thought about it?  Well, I’ve been thinking a lot about it over the last few weeks.  What do I want to accomplish this new year, how do I want to improve myself, what are my goals for health, fitness, my Beachbody business, etc.  With a new baby on the way, staying fit is a high priority.
What is YOUR RESOLUTION?  Is it time for a CHANGE?  Are you tired of the way you are feeling and know you need to take some steps for better health this year?
NOW is your time!!  It’s a NEW YEAR and time for a NEW YOU!!
On January 11th, 2016 I’ll be starting a New Year, New You fitness challenge.  Take the steps NOW to be where you want to be in 60 days!!
So…What is New Year, New You Health/Fitness Challenge?
Have you ever had your New Year’s Resolution be to lose weight or get healthy?  Most likely, your answer would be YES, in some way, shape or form…am I right?  No matter how much weight you have to lose, 3 pounds or 100 pounds.  I’m sure at some point in time, you have had that goal…
Did you reach that goal?  Did you stick with your resolution for more than 2 weeks?  Did you find yourself on fire the first week and slowly dwindle off motivation come the 2nd week or maybe even the 3rd week.  Then it became a game of “I’ll start on Monday”.
Does this sound familiar? Most likely…YES!
So you may ask…what makes this different?  Well, with this health/fitness challenge…Personalized support, motivation, accountability and teaching on how to meal plan for greatest success.
success new
Accountability + Motivation + Support = RESULTS
I have to say that doing a workout at home by yourself with no support is pretty hard. But knowing you have a place to check in each and be accountable to makes all the difference in the world. It’s just nice to know you have a shoulder to lean on when you have a bad day and then to celebrate with when you hit your goals!! So that’s exactly what we are going to do.
This is for ANYONE at ANY fitness level, beginner to expert!  What you’ll need to do, is choose a Beachbody fitness program (some options include: P90X, P90X3, T25, Piyo Insanity, 21 Day Fix…to name a few).  I can help you determine what would be a good fit for you depending on your fitness level and your goals.
After you choose a fitness program, the next part of the group is that you commit to drinking Shakeology, for the next 60 days to give your body 1 meal that is supercharged with ingredients that will give you natural energy, cravings will be curbed, you will stay full for at least 3 hours and its equivalent to 6 salads in one meal.
The Challenge is all done through a closed online facebook support group.  So only the members of the group can see what is being posted.
Then, I am going to teach you how to plan the other meals of the day.  I will help you create a customized meal plan, give you recipes, snack ideas, tips, motivation and keep you accountable. Every day I post in the challenge group your daily mind set tip or post.  You check in and rate your date and read what is posted.  We all keep each other accountable!
I am going to address the emotional eating, eating out at restaurants, going on vacation, temptations, cheat meals, body image and more!
This plan is designed to help YOU SUCCEED!  That is my #1 goal!  I want YOU to reach your goals that you have made for yourself this new year!

21 Day Fix Weekend Tips

So you’ve recently started the 21 Day Fix, and you’re rocking it! But…OH NO! The weekend is upon us! You think of all the parties, and get togethers, or date nights you may encounter. So how do you make it through without totally sabotaging you’re progress so far??

Here are my pre-planning tips to get you through the weekend!

menu-dining-table

If you are going out to a restaurant check out the menu ahead of time. Decide on what you are going eat before you even get there.  That way when you sit down at the restaurant you won’t have to fight against temptation and you won’t even have to open the menu!  And by the way, just SKIP the bread, it has no nutritional value!

Also, keep in mind restaurant portions are NOT REAL PORTIONS. I like to ask for a box right away, and stick half of my meal in the box from the get go, so there’s no over eating!

Tea-party-food-table-640x424

For parties, pre-eat!  So have a shake on your way to the party.  Offer to bring a clean appetizer or snack.  Then make every social gathering about socializing with others and not about the food.  Stay away from the food table.  I help set up, get the kids food, and then help clean up so I am never forced to have to just sit and stare at everyone else shoving food down their throats.

Water-bottle

Drink lots of water!!!  Just remember that you are not depriving yourself of life, you are giving yourself life!  When everyone is feeling full, sluggish and miserable you are going to be looking fabulous, feeling confident and have more energy!!

And of course, stick with those workouts! Most programs give you 1 rest day a week, not two or three! I even like to double up on workouts sometimes for the weekend, or add in a run!

So stick with the program, and have fun! This program is helping define a NEW YOU! So don’t let the weekend destroy that!

Have a great weekend, ya’ll!

-Plan it out!  If you are traveling, going to sporting events or just out all day pack a cooler of clean snacks.  Even throw in an extra snack so that you are not caught in a situation where you are out longer than expected and have nothing to eat.  It’s easy to throw in a packet of shakeology, shaker cup and a bottle of water!  I always keep one in the car!

Now, get your workout in and kick some butt!!!

What If…

What if you finally decided to try something different — you finally got tired of feeling tired all the time — and decided to say YES to something that could possibly CHANGE YOUR LIFE?
.
No miracle pill. No fad diet. No starving or depriving yourself.
.
Just 30-minutes a day — AT HOME — with a super simple Eating Plan that allows you to eat REAL FOODS up to 6X per day (including cheats!), shows you EXACTLY what to eat & how much, AND you had an entire (private, online) group of women who were starting the program right along with you that you could share your struggles, celebrate your victories with, vent to, laugh with, and to help to keep you accountable & motivated every single day…
.
What if you just decided….WHY NOT ME??
.
If you are finally READY for a change in your life — whether it’s to lose weight, just get healthy, tone up or to feel comfortable & confident in your own skin — why keep putting it off?!
.
The time is going to pass anyways so if you want it — then GO FOR IT!
For me — it was the BEST decision of my life!

How I lost over 10 inches in 3 Days

3 day

What is the 3-Day Refresh?

The 3-Day Refresh is 3-day program of specially formulated shakes, healthy snacks, and delicious, easy-to-prepare meals that have been scientifically designed to help you lose weight and break the cycle of bad eating while dramatically improving the way you feel.*

How is the 3-Day Refresh different from other cleanses?

Unlike juice fasts or liquid cleanses that are high in sugar and low in protein (which can leave you feeling weak and sluggish), the 3-Day Refresh is scientifically designed to help support your metabolism while nourishing your vital organs.* Plus, you actually get to eat delicious, real food during this program.

Why Refresh?

• You need a clean break from a period of unhealthy eating.
• You used to eat pretty well but have recently fallen off the wagon and need some help getting back on. • You want to jump-start healthy eating habits for a new workout program.
• You want to quickly lose a few pounds for an upcoming event.
• You’ve never been a healthy eater, but are ready to kick-start better nutrition for the first time.
• You want your clothes to fit better.
• You want more energy.
• You love food and want to be satisfied while you lose weight and get healthier.
• You’ve tried liquid fasts or other fad diets and they simply don’t work.

What’s included?

  • 3 packets of Shakeology®—your choice of 6 flavors (we recommend Chocolate Vegan or Tropical Strawberry Vegan during the Refresh as plant proteins are often easier for the body to digest)
  • 6 packets of Vanilla Fresh (high-protein shake)
  • 3 packets of Fiber Sweep (digestive drink)
  • 1 Program Guide

    What does one eat and drink while Refreshing?

  • FILTERED WATER: In addition to the water you use in your shakes and teas, we recommend you drink

    at least half your body weight in ounces of filtered water each day.

  • BREAKFAST: A superfood-packed Shakeology shake, plus one fruit option
  • MORNING TEA: 1 cup of unsweetened herbal or green tea
  • LATE MORNING: Fiber Sweep, a digestive health drink
  • LUNCH: Vanilla Fresh shake, plus 1 option from the Fruit List, 1 option from the Vegetable List, and 1 option from the Healthy Fats list
  • AFTERNOON SNACK: 1 option from Vegetable List, and 1 option from the Healthy Fats list
  • AFTERNOON TEA: 1 cup of unsweetened herbal tea (caffeine-free)
  • DINNER: Vanilla Fresh shake, 1 option from the Dinner Recipes, and 1 cup of organic vegetable broth (optional)
  • EVENING TEA: 1 cup of unsweetened herbal tea (caffeine-free)

This is tailor made for people who need QUICK results in a healthy way. It’s fool proof, easy to follow guide takes you through the program, and if you follow along you’ll see a huge difference in just 3 Days, guaranteed! I stand by this program for sure, and do it quarterly. Message me or check out the shop for more info!
