Killer leg/butt exercise (Band required)

If you follow my blog, you are probably aware that I am currently doing the 21 Day Fix Extreme home fitness program. Well, sometimes I like to take the toughest moves and use them as a little challenge for my health and fitness group participants. Share the love I always say, or in this case, pain! lol

During my workout yesterday, I came across this move. It had my legs and butt on FIRE.

If you watched that video, and you have access to a band, I triple dog dare you to attempt this move! Go until your legs can’t take it anymore, and then comment on this thread and let me know how long you made it.

Enjoy ;)

Never feel bad for making yourself a priority!

If you have family and friends that aren’t into health and fitness, but you are, you will probably understand this struggle.

People just don’t seem to grasp this reality, but putting yourself first sometimes and deciding to make your health a top priority is NOT selfish. Nor does it mean that you have your priorities all wrong! It simply means that your priorities differ from theirs, and in their opinion, that is wrong. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and their points of views, and it is never okay for people to try to bully you into their way of thinking.

People shouldn’t expect you to give up something that you love and that makes you happy. Instead, they should respect your choice to lead a healthier life, and work with you to accommodate your new lifestyle. It is totally unfair for people to try and force you to change your routine to fit their life, and you should not have to feel guilty for standing your ground!!

Don’t allow others to wear you down. You DESERVE to be happy and healthy. Exercise makes me a much more happy and positive person, which allows me to be in a better mood throughout the day. It allows me to have more energy to get through my day, and it builds my confidence and self-esteem, because I know that with each workout, I am getting leaner and stronger. It truly sets the mood for your day!

You deserve to have that too.

Never let anyone tell you otherwise.

21 Day Fix promotions extended to July!!

By now you have probably heard about the fitness program that has been on fire since it was released in February: The 21 Day Fix Extreme, as well as its original counterpart, The 21 Day Fix.

The concept behind the 21 day fix is that it typically takes 3 weeks (21 days) to make or break a habit. Autumn Calabrese is a bikini competitor for various fitness competitions, and she put this program together to deliver to those of us who would like to get all of the tools that we need to be fit and healthy in one place. Now this is not for everyone, and I am aware of that for sure. Some people prefer to pay hundreds, sometimes even thousands of dollars for personal training, gym membership fees, class fees, supplements, vitamins, etc.

With this program, you pay a one time fee and you get:

a) the full fitness program in DVD’s to show you exactly what to do and how to do it, a program that was designed by a figure competitor who knows her stuff!

b) a super strict meal plan to help you with the nutrition part of your journey

c) a color-coded portion control container system so that you no longer have to worry about counting calories, you just match the foods on your plan to the appropriate container and it gives you your portion!

d) a month supply of shakeology, our nutrition dense meal replacement shake that you drink once daily. This is something I use daily, and has helped me with my energy level, my regularity, curbing sweet cravings, among other things.

e) a month free trial of our club membership on the site, which gives you access to a wide range of information. You can even access VIP chats with some of the top beachbody trainers so that you can ask them questions and learn from them. PLUS, Beachbody ON DEMAND is being released in March for Club Members, which is something that you definitely don’t want to miss!

f) my support as your beachbody coach, as well as the challenge group I am putting together. When I started out, the challenge group that my coach put me in was instrumental to my success on this journey because it provided me with the accountability and motivation that I needed to keep pushing through.

How does this sound? I will be starting a FIXed Challenge Group set to begin August 3rd, and I cannot tell you how excited I am to get started! I would love to coach you through this process and have you join me on this journey! If you’re ready to get started, all that is left to do is decide which of the programs better suits your individual goals and needs. If you are new to health and fitness, I strongly recommend the original 21 Day Fix. As you can see from the image below, that program means business, and will help you get some awesome results!

If you’re already somewhat into health and fitness, but could use help in the nutrition department or a bigger challenge physically, I would recommend the 21 Day Fix Extreme! Check out the photo below demonstrating some of the results that my fellow Beachbody coaches achieved during the test group for this program.

July Customer Kudos!!

This month ONLY you can purchase two never-before-seen pigments with a liner and shader brush in a special beauty bundle! I have already ordered mine, because you know me.. I need to try EVERY pigment we have lol.

You may remember something like this happening with the lip stain back in November. Younique offered up an exclusive product as a kudos, and it sold like crazy. We had to wait months before Younique decided to officially release the full product line, so there is no telling when (or even if) we will see these specific pigments again.

Our mineral pigments are 100% natural, and they are animal cruelty-free. You can dress them up using rosewater, glorious primer, or even just water for a more dramatic look, or you can wear it dry for a more casual look. These two colors are absolutely beautiful, and I can’t wait to try them out.

This bundle is available only as supplies last, so if they sell out before the end of the month, you’re outta luck!!

Banana Split Shake – AKA – buh-bye ice cream craving!

Summer is officially here, and one of my biggest downfalls – especially during the summer – happens to be ice cream. I love ice cream, and I practically lived off of gelato when I was in Europe last summer lol. I suffer from ice cream cravings pretty frequently during the summer months when it is hot. Sound familiar?

This is your solution! I normally make the same shake every day because I just love it, but I had recommended a banana split shake to someone the other day, and it stuck in my mind until I finally decided to make it today. This is super easy to make, and it seriously tastes AMAZING. If you have a craving for ice cream on a hot summer day, this will totally do the trick to get rid of that craving. PLUS – it will likely be the healthiest meal that you will have all day long.

What you’ll need:

  • Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology
  • 1 scoop Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
  • 1/2 cup Frozen Strawberries
  • 1/2 of a Banana
  • 3 or 4 ice cubes

How to make it:

  1. Start by putting in 1 cup of your almond milk, and I usually add a little bit of water so that the shake doesn’t wind up being too thick.
  2. Add your powders.
  3. Add your fruit, and I recommend cutting the banana half in smaller pieces for easier blending.
  4. Add ice
  5. Blend until smooth
  6. ENJOY!!

All of this takes less than 5 minutes to prepare, and it is seriously awesome. You might not want to share this with your kids or significant other, because they just might try and steal it from you! Click Here to learn all about the benefits of Shakeology, or to purchase your risk-free bag now.

I have a limited amount of Shakeology samples!! If you’re local and you’d like to try this out, shoot me a message and I can arrange for you to get a sample.
