Jump Start Your Weight Loss with a 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse

Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse11 Jump Start Your Weight Loss with a 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse

Did you realize that your results are 80% nutrition, 20% exercise?  

I had always heard this but for some reason I never believed it myself. After losing 60 lbs. & maintaining that weight loss for a few years, I have learned so much about nutrition.

My nutrition has really been on point until moving to Charlotte a few weeks ago. I’ve never lived in a big city so having so many different food options around was super tempting. My birthday was also a couple weeks ago so I celebrated & ate all kinds of food I wouldn’t normally eat then. I had gained a few extra pounds & wanted to find a way to jump start my weight loss so I decided to do a 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse.

If you’re looking to get the junk out of your system that you’ve been consuming, a 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse is perfect to jumpstart your weight loss now. This cleanse is more enjoyable than most cleanses. It’s more a calorie-restricted & nutrient-dense diet plan. I’ve actually been eating frequently & consuming around 900 calories per day. The purpose of this was to rid my body of undigested foods & toxins. It is the perfect way to jump start your weight loss with a 3 Day Cleanse.

So here’s how it works:

  • 1 cup of Green Tea to start the day
  • Breakfast – Shakeology
  • Snack – 1 serving of fruit
  • Lunch – Shakeology
  • Snack – 1 serving of fruit
  • Snack – Shakeology
  • Dinner – salad w/ 3 cups of veggies & 4 oz lean meat (white, fish)

Seriously look at what I get to eat – YUM!

You must drink only water & green tea for the three days. So far I’ve lost 3 lbs & I’m feeling so amazing eating back on track with eating healthy. It is the perfect way to jump start your weight loss. I plan on going back in to T25 hard next week because this week my body really needed a break from the intense workouts.

You must feed your body the proper nutrients in order to be healthy & have the results that you are looking for from your workouts. You cannot just workout & eat horrible food & expect to have results. You must do both in order to be healthy overall & get the body that you want. It is important for us to put the best foods in our bodies because we must treat them like a temple like God intended. The perfect way to jump start your weight loss is with a 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse.

Shakeology has been a staple in my diet & I happened to come across it after I lost weight. And when Shakeology is paired with working out, you will lose weight quicker & enhance your results. I love it because I haven’t gotten sick in a year, I have more energy, my digestion has improved, my hair, skin, & nails are all healthier, & it helps with my sweet cravings. It is packed with super-foods and worth every penny – being healthy should be an investment because God calls us to honor our bodies.

This self-guided, three-day journey will introduce you to Shakeology (3x day) plus a light meal and snacks.  I will provide an easy to follow, step-by-step program.  Average weight loss for my clients is 5 lbs.  Perfect for those who need to break through a weight loss plateau and cleanse their body of junk foods!  This is also wonderful for special occasions and wishing to drop weight before a big event.  $50+Shipping

6 Easy Ways to Rev Up Your Metabolism

Rev Up Your Metabolism 6 Easy Ways to Rev Up Your Metabolism

Your metabolism is one thing that can greatly affect your results from exercising & eating. Some people are blessed naturally & have super fast metabolisms, whereas some people have much slower ones like myself. My mom is one of those with a fast metabolism, she can eat whatever she wants & not gain weight. I, on the other hand, have to be super particular about everything that I put in my body. But, the good news is, according to Self Magazine, there are 6 easy ways to rev up your metabolism. They  can achieve all your fitness goals & melt off those pounds & inches!

1. Take a run. Running burns lots of calories & also slows the aging process!

2. Lift weights. Strength training is super important because lean muscle increases your metabolism. Lift weights for at least 20 minutes, 3 times a week.

3. Get in some cardio. High intensity interval training, jumping rope, & kickboxing are all great forms that can double your metabolic rate for an entree half hour after exercising.

4. Eat frequently. You’ll need to eat every 2-3 hours to rev up your metabolism.

5. Drink lots of water. If you don’t drink enough, your metabolism may decrease. Try to drink 8 glasses a day!

6. Eat more fiber & protein. Fiber helps you burn extra energy when you’re processing it. Protein helps rebuild muscle tissue which is essential for increasing your metabolism.

Try trying out these 6 easy ways to rev up your metabolism & you’ll see the inches melt off in no time!

And just something funny (because I’m a goof) in closing!

Are Your Emotions Controlling You?

Thoughts Control You1 Are Your Emotions Controlling You?

Do you feel like your emotions are completely controlling you? I’ve been there before & I still struggle with it to this day. If you follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter you’ve seen my posts this week about my workouts. If I didn’t know better, I would let my emotions control me.  I haven’t felt like doing them, but I’ve pushed through & done it any way & felt amazing afterwards. There’s been days where I haven’t felt like getting up when my alarm goes off because I’m just so comfy. But, I know I have to if I want to achieve the goals I set out for myself this year.

As I mentioned in my post earlier this week, I am so blessed to have found my true passion in life. Yes, that makes it a little easier to get motivated. But, honestly not all the time! It has not been easy getting where I am now. God took me through many hard times & struggles to get there, but now I can understand why I went through everything. If I would’ve never been 200 lbs half my life, gone through a terrible divorce, & worked at a job that was not suited for me & made me depressed, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I was letting my emotions totally take control of me.

We are all guilty of letting our emotions run our life at times. Our emotions control a lot of decisions we make on a daily basis. Do you ever feel too sore to go for a run so you convince yourself to take a day off? How about feeling like you’re too afraid to go after a certain goal because people may judge you, so you just don’t do anything? What about feeling like you’re not good enough to achieve a certain goal or you can’t do it like someone else did because you’re not like them, so you don’t ever live up to your full potential? Maybe you don’t feel like quitting smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, or giving up bad foods because you just don’t know how you’ll live without them? Or how about the classic, you don’t feel like cooking a healthy meal so instead you go to the drive thru?

We’ve all been there friends! This was seriously me my whole life! I always let my emotions control me. I never thought that my life would look the way it does now, even if you would’ve asked me 60 days ago, I would’ve had no clue!

So, I can truly relate to others when they’re struggling through hard times in life because I know exactly how it feels. You may think that my life now doesn’t include any struggles, but you’re completely wrong. I have days where I don’t want to workout & make excuses in my head of why I shouldn’t do it, I don’t always eat perfectly & occasionally have a horrible eating day, & I still struggle with negative & toxic thoughts on occasion. I have days where my emotions seriously control me & I don’t do my best.

Becoming a coach & being a part of our challenge groups & a community of amazing like minded people is what has changed my entire life. Being in that community has caused me to not let my emotions control me anymore. I may have lost 60 lbs before I became a coach, but it’s not easy staying motivated on your own. It’s a total life changer having a community of positive like-minded people who also have goals & will help you achieve them.

And speaking of fitness, I absolutely love this saying, “Good things come to those who get off their butts, work hard, & never give up.” That is so true! Sometimes we may not feel like doing or workout, but keep your goals and your “why” in mind. Don’t forget them!! ☺We cannot let our emotions control our entire life!

My 12 Day Challenge just ended & almost all of my clients lost around 8 pounds! They stopped letting their emotions control their daily decisions about health & fitness. They are full of ENERGY, thanking me for pushing them to get started, saying they love what they learned during the challenge, & they now feel motivated & excited to exercise & eat healthy. Check out this quick video I created about what exactly a 12 Day Challenge is & how it can work for you:http://youtu.be/fNEwrPt4RyE.

Weight Loss Are Your Emotions Controlling You?

Being a coach has seriously changed my life! I absolutely love it!! I am so glad that God helped me overcome so much & that my emotions do not control me anymore. I get to help people achieve their health & fitness goals through motivation, inspiration, & encouragement. I am an accountability partner because it is always easier to achieve your goals & stick to your plan when you have someone right there by your side checking in on you. Many of my friends have health & fitness goals & I check in with them daily to see how they’re doing & see if they need anything.

I am so blessed to be a part of this & it touches my heart to hear this amazing feedback. This is what I do ya’ll – I’m helping CHANGE LIVES! So are you ready to change yours? Are you sick & tired of letting your emotions control you? This is my passion ya’ll – I want to help YOU! I’d love to have you in my next challenge – why wait?! ♥

Weight Loss Tips for the Busy Person

Tips for Busy People Weight Loss Tips for the Busy Person

Some people may find it difficult to live a healthy lifestyle while working full time. Some of you may not know this, but I have not been a full time Beachbody Coach for long. I was working full-time at a demanding & high stress job up until mid-April. I was able to find the right workouts to get in shape & ate the right foods that helped me lose weight & stay healthy. I know this can be challenging at times, but it is completely attainable. You can be healthy while working full time and also eat healthy while at work.

When I was working work full time I also was doing my part time business as a coach & volunteered frequently with my church in my spare time. In order for me to juggle everything, I had to live a healthy lifestyle. If I didn’t, there was no way I would have had enough energy to get through each day. Even now that I’m only working 20 hours a week, I stay very busy spending time with my friends & family, spending more time with God, traveling, cooking, & working out. I’m constantly on the go & because of that I must be healthy so that I have the energy to keep me going!

When I was working full-time, I would wake up 4 hours before I had to be at work every day. I gave myself plenty of time to spend my time with God, work out, and get ready for the day. I am not a morning person & immediately wanted to snooze my alarm every morning. But I got up to do my workout any way because I knew it would help give me energy for the entire day. Even now that I’m not working full-time, my God time & workouts come first in the morning & I set my alarm daily so I can fit them in.

I also used to prepare all of my snacks for the day in the morning as well. I made sure that I purchased healthy foods that are easy to make in to meals. I frequently bought frozen tilapia filets, turkey, ground turkey, & chicken for my meat products. I purchased a lot of vegetables (fresh and frozen), fruits, nuts, whole grains, eggs, yogurt, oatmeal, & of course Shakeology (the healthiest meal of the day). I don’t have time to cook very often, so I make sure I purchase foods that don’t take much preparation.I don’t eat meat anymore, but I wanted to share those things with you for those meat eaters out there.

I also packed my snacks for work so that I could eat every 2-3 hours, which is a must for a healthy lifestyle. Some of my favorites were apples, bananas, nuts, raisins, yogurt, other fruit and vegetables, & Luna bars. These foods take basically no preparation whatsoever.

Healthy Lifestyle Weight Loss Tips for the Busy Person

It takes self-discipline, time, & dedication to lead a healthy lifestyle while working. But, it is not as difficult as you may think though. As a first step, just trying buying healthy & easy foods & waking up a little earlier each day. It is definitely vital for me to take the time to exercise & eat healthy so that I have the energy to get through each busy day of my life. I know it’s possible for you, too!

Frustrated You’re Not Achieving Your Fitness Goals? 3 Reasons Why Beachbody Challenges Achieve Results

Weight Loss Advice Frustrated Youre Not Achieving Your Fitness Goals? 3 Reasons Why Beachbody Challenges Achieve Results

I have such an exciting topic to talk about today!! This is what gets me out of bed ever single day, pumped up & ready to go!!!

Are you feeling frustrated with your current fitness routine because you’re not achieving results? Do you feel lost when you go to the gym & don’t know what equipment to use for the results you’re hoping to achieve? Are you bored with your current workout? Or do you just know that you cannot do this weight loss thing alone?

You’re not alone friends! I’ve been there before! I tried so many diets before – you name it, I’ve tried it. I was able to lose weight on my own (I lost 60 lbs), but the workouts were boring, I was lost, & didn’t have any fun doing it alone. I wish I would’ve found out about Beachbody sooner because it’s changed my entire life!

Beachbody challenges are certainly not the only way to lose weight. Simple exercise & healthy eating can help you lose weight. But, if you’re looking to lose weight quick & to do it with a group of people to hold you accountable & support you, a Beachbody challenge is for you.

The difference between Beachbody challenges & all those other workouts & programs out there is that we provide you with accountability, motivation, & support. That is the proven formula for success! I am absolutely floored with the results my clients have had in such short periods of time.

So many of my friends were feeling frustrated & so tired of drowning in their feelings of depression because they were overweight. My friend Kate has used Turbo Fire & Shakeology since the beginning of the year & already lost over 50 lbs. My friend Megan used the same combination last year & lost 60 lbs. My friend Brandy used P90X & Shakeology & lost 30 lbs. You can see some of our amazing success stories with before & after pictures here.

Beachbody challenges are also not only for people looking to lose weight. I drink Shakeology daily because it provides me with complete nutrition & I do my Chalean Extreme workout six days a week. I couldn’t live without them!

If you can’t seem to achieve the results you’re looking for in the gym, how would you feel if I told you that I could give you a simple formula for you to achieve exactly what you’re looking for?  That’s exactly how the challenge groups work! I will be there with you every step of the way & show you exactly what workouts to do & foods to eat to achieve your fitness goals.
