21 Day Fix Promotion Ends soon!

Have I told you how much I love the 21 Day Fix and how it has completely changed my way of nutrition and eating?

It is so simple and easy and brilliant! There's no counting calories, teaches you about portion control, you learn what "clean eating" is and it's simply......amazing.

It's absolutely the PERFECT way to jump start your new fitness and health goals, plans, diet, etc.

Need to lose some pounds for a celebration or holiday party coming up? A school reunion?  A wedding, better yet, YOUR wedding? Maybe you just need to detox your body, clear out the junk, start fresh. 

It comes with color coded portion controlled containers so it takes out the guesswork. No counting calories. 
AND it comes with 30 minute workouts that kick your booty.
AND it shows you how to eat out at a restaurant.
AND you get treats and "cheat" meals.
AND it comes with Shakeology (optional, but HIGHLY recommended)

AND did I mention it's only 21 days?


I have done my 7 days of clean eating groups on Facebook basing the grocery list around this plan. We don't use the containers or do the workouts. And people lose on average 3-8 pounds. In one week.

Imagine what 21 days could do for you?

Check out my youtube video where I explain everything the 21 Day Fix "Challenge Pack" comes with. 

I have a group starting Oct 6.
You in?

Fall is Here!

It's Monday, Monday, MONDAY!
And what do I say every Monday, fresh day, fresh week, fresh START!
And guess what, tomorrow is the first day of FALL! yay or.......nay? (still undecided  )
But what that means is, it's time to keep GOING with your fitness routine and don't FALL off track. Going into the colder season, we don't want to pack on the pounds that we've been working so hard to keep off. That way, when Spring comes around, people are envious of us, right?!
So if you are kicking butt keep going!!
If you FALL into the category of being in a rut or just can't find the motivation, let's change that! I have a 21 Day Fix group coming up that I would love for you to be a part of. I have ongoing T25 and Piyo groups going (and I'm doing this as well, so I can be your partner and help you through it) or if you're interested in finding something that fits more your style, let's find that as well.
If you simply don't like working out, try Shakeology! You all know I swear by it, it's my superpowers. Try it and if you don't like it there is a 30 day, empty bag, money back. Serious.
Go for a walk, get down and do some push-ups, take the stairs. But get physical today. Drink water. Make healthy choices.
I'm here for you all. Reach out to me if you need a place to start.
Happy Monday everyone, make it a great one!

Imagine what 21 days will do for you?

I have people ask me what I eat on a daily basis. I can honestly tell you I base it around this program. It's simple, easy, we eat real food, no calorie counting and it's.....brilliant.

Let it Go!

There is a saying among dancers.

Leave it on the stage.

Pour your heart, your emotions, your feelings....everything... pour it into your dance and leave it on the stage when you walk off.

Growing up and dancing for 25 years, that was my release. It was my escape. Whether it was from a fight with a friend from grade school, a heart broken by a crush or boyfriend, a misunderstanding with my mom or dad, or just because.....I needed to let some emotion out. When I danced, I let go of everything and just let the music take me away and let my body and feelings go with it. Just go for it, let everything go and be in the moment. Be YOU!

I'm not on stage anymore and I retired from dancing about 6 years ago. I still put on music from time to time and dance around my house. I traded in my pointe and character shoes for some sweet, pink Nike ones. And now I get my frustrations out by doing Insanity or T25.

Whatever it is, find an outlet that you can let your mind be free and let your passion and emotion take over. It helps you let go of everything. Sweat it out. Cry it out. SCREAM it out. And leave it on the floor.

Shakeology Myths Debunked!

Happy Saturday everyone!
I came across some great info about Shakeology that a fellow coach explained fantastically! Check it out.....
Beachbody® Coach, Seay Stanford, feels so passionate about the shake that changed her life that she wrote the article below to debunk all those Shakeology Myths floating around. This article is so powerful and real that we had no choice but to share it with the rest of the world. So here you go. Enjoy! And thanks, Seay. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
#1 MISCONCEPTION: Shakeology is a protein shake.
Meaning just a shake that provides extra protein. I can’t blame the general public for thinking this since “protein shake” has become nearly an interchangeable term for ANY shake. But, all shakes are not created equal—especially ones that contain superfoods. Shakeology is a very nutrient-dense shake that can be used for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You’d have to eat a whole lot of fruits and vegetables to equal the nutrition in a single glass of Shakeology—and you probably couldn’t do it for less than 170 calories. Shakeology makes it very easy to cut your calories without substantially cutting down your daily volume of nutrients needed. Truth be told, the majority of people are WAY MORE nutrient deficient, than they are protein deficient. So why just stop at a protein shake?
#2 MISCONCEPTION: Shakeology is about comparing carbs, proteins, and fats to other shakes.
This is not at all what you should be comparing when you look at other shakes versus Shakeology. Sure, other shakes have 0 grams of sugar. But how do you think those shakes achieve that? Hint, it’s not natural. Yes, that’s right, they are probably using ARTIFICIAL sweeteners to get to 0 grams of sugar. Even fruit has sugar in it. A shake with 0 grams of sugar is using ARTIFICIAL sweeteners. Shakeology has NO artificial sweeteners, NO artificial colors, NO soy, NO artificial stimulants, and NO artificial flavors. One of its main sweeteners is Stevia, which is plant-based.
#3 MISCONCEPTION: Shakeology is just a bunch of extracts, with no whole-food ingredients.
That’s not true. Whenever it’s possible and sustainable for the formula, the superfoods in Shakeology are preserved in their whole-food state to retain maximum nutrient value. It’s a very difficult process to use whole, plant-based ingredients so that the formula retains as much nutritional value as possible, but Shakeology has a whole team of scientists whose mission is to maximize the nutrition in every ingredient in Shakeology. Imagine trying to juice all those superfoods! Shakeology is way less expensive and a huge time-saver.
#4 MISCONCEPTION: Shakeology is expensive.
To anyone who feels this product is expensive I know that I have not done my diligence in breaking down its REAL VALUE. Most people will agree that they would spend an average of $3 to $7 on a HEALTHY nutritious meal. I know most store-bought salads cost even more than that, and don’t contain nearly the dense concentration of nutrients. But on average, I think we can all agree healthy meals run between $3 and $7. Shakeology, at $4.33 per shake, comes in on the LOW END of average. (You can make Shakeology into a breakfast or lunch that you’d be buying anyway.) Not only are you spending less than you normally would, you’re also getting vital nutrients your body needs, that you just can’t get from your run-of-the-mill salad, plus the normal range of vitamins and minerals. So you can replace your VITAMINS, too. Sure, you may need a specific vitamin, based on your conditions, geography, or age—but in general, Shakeology will provide you with a solid base of your whole-food nutrients.
When was the last time you went to your grocery store and bought THIRTY meals all at once? Typically, I’m guessing, you buy a few days’ worth each time. When you buy a bulk bag of Shakeology, you are buying 30 of your shakes up-front. That means you’ll spend less money at the grocery store. Because of the grocery savings, I actually deduct my monthly Shakeology from my grocery budget. For the price, I cannot duplicate its vast quality of ingredients and nutrients.
#5 MISCONCEPTION: Shakeology is only for weight loss.
Most shakes are marketed this way. But here’s the thing. Anything will induce weight loss if it’s low enough in calories. Just because you are drinking a shake, does not mean the fat will melt off. Actually, if you are not getting enough nutrients and calories you will actually inhibit your weight-loss efforts. Shakeology is about HEALTH. When you put the RIGHT nutrients in your body that it needs to develop, heal, recover, repair, and thrive, you may ultimately have MORE energy, LESS cravings, and FEEL better therefore you eat less and become more active. With Shakeology, weight loss becomes a BY-PRODUCT of dense nutrition.
To make my point, when was the last time you dieted and cut calories only to feel tired, grouchy, and had a ton of cravings? That is because you may have been nutrient deficient. What if you’re at your goal weight, or need to GAIN weight? Because Shakeology is about DENSE NUTRITION you can use it as your base and add clean calories to make it 300 calories or more. Not everyone needs to lose weight, but everyone needs to be healthier. Shakeology isn’t MAGIC. It’s just clean dense nutrition made SUPER easy for everyone at a very affordable price. It’s my family’s “fast food” on the counter. Yes, my family goes through 4–5 bags a MONTH because even though we all have different weight and caloric needs, we all share the same NUTRITIONAL needs. Shakeology isn’t a weight-loss shake—it’s a nutrition shake.

21 Day Fix group starting

Good morning everyone! Happy MONDAY! You all know how much I love Mondays. New day, new week, fresh start.
Well, it got me thinking. Summer is winding down (boooooooo!!!!!) the holidays are fast approaching (anyone else see Thanksgiving decorations in the stores yet?) and I want to go into the holiday season looking hot! Anyone else?
Soooo......I was thinking of doing the 21 Day Fix group this month. This way it will get our eating in check before we gorge ourselves with all of the holiday yumminess.
What is the 21 day fix program?
**It is based on clean eating. We use color coded portion controlled containers that measure our food for us (brilliant) We don't cut out any food groups and I promise you won't starve. Really. In fact, sometimes it's hard for me to even finish all of my food for the day.
*And bonus, it comes with Shakeology and 30 minute workouts. ‪#‎BOOM‬
My last month's clean eating group was based on this program and everyone lost between 3 and 8 lbs.....for 1 WEEK! Imagine doing it for 21 days!! It's a pretty amazing program, I have learned about eating and portion control so much from it.
So what say you? I would love to start 2 groups. My first one will start on Oct 6.
And surprise, 21 day fix is on promotion this month!
Who's ready, comment below with "I'm in!"
