Who’s ready to join me July 18th for my 4-week Love Yourself SUMMER Kickstart Challenge?
We will start with 7 days of PREP complete with meal planning, new ideas, recipes and tips to help you get up and running followed by our 3 week – 21 DAY Challenge!
Traveling? Vacation? Weddings? Company? NO PROBLEM!!!!
This is about finding ways to create a healthy LIFESTYLE with balance, fulfillment and RESULTS!
This group will combine both FITNESS & NUTRITION.
I am highlighting the 21-Day Fix and Fix Extreme this month as these two programs have been the most KEY in helping not only myself but the majority of my challengers but we will discuss what is best for YOU!
You can expect sample meal plans during the group but you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to make these specific plans fit YOUR lifestyle.
This group requires that I AM YOUR COACH & that you commit to a fitness program that we will decide on together.
Each participant will replace one meal with our nutrient dense superfood meal replacement, Shakeology and I’ll provide you with the support, motivation and drive to not only COMMIT but follow through with your commitment.
There will only be 15 participants selected this round so it will be based on a first come first serve basis!!!!
Anyone who enrolls by the end of day July 15th will be entered into a drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card.
Fill out the application below, invite some friends & get pumped up!!!
The newest Shakeology flavor has officially arrived!!!
And the Pittsburgh Market Council was fortunate enough to receive a little pre-launch stock pile to share at our Super Friday event.
One of the coaches on our team volunteering at Super Friday in the Shakeology Cafe
I asked some of the samplers what their thoughts were and this was the buzz:
“Reminds me of an iced coffee. Its not super sweet nor bitter like coffee. Its pretty good”
“As an avid coffee drinker I LOVE the taste and love that there’s no additional caffeine – I can drink it any time of the day. I love my shake late night.”
“Not as strong as the chocolate flavor but still very flavorful, def something to add to my mix but not so sure it could replace coffee everyday”
“Would be interested in the combo flavor box. Maybe even mixing half cafe latte with half vanilla shakeology or even chocolate shakeology”
“One word. AMAZING.”
So I decided to experiment a bit….
Autumn Calabrese was at our event last weekend and she suggested something very simple: Almond milk + all natural PB = simple!
And since she never steered me wrong in my workouts I figured she wouldn’t fail me now! So I went for it:
And YES – she was right!
From a girl who is not a fan of “coffee” but had a serious Blended Frap-a-day addiction in college – this hit the spot!
I kept this recipe simple but I know I could do my daily green container of spinach and it wouldn’t alter the flavor at all but would help me get my greens in!!! #winning!
If you’re interested in giving this a try you can do so – RISK FREE – with our 30-day guarantee.
You can GET YOURS with the combo route including 8 packets of Cafe Latte, 8 of Chocolate Shakeology and 8 Vanilla Shakeology packets or go all out Cafe Latte with a 30-serving bag.
You can also tack on a workout program for as little as $10 more in a CHALLENGE PACK.
But above it all – this is a small component in living out a healthy lifestyle and I want to help YOU!
If you’re looking to use this to jump start your journey to a healthier, more confident YOU – then fill out the application below to be considered for a spot in my next online Health & Fitness accountability group!
(*Must not already be working with a coach)
There’s POWER in numbers but YOU only have control of ONE.
Getting in my daily dose of dense superfood nutrition with my daily vitamin mixed with some probitoics and digestive enzypmes…oh and some Peanut Butter Granola
While I don’t get so fancy with the mix ins on a daily basis Aubrey’s oreos from her treat bag were calling my name and this hit the spot for sure!
My little guy couldn’t get enough and the consistency was perfect!!!
WHAT YOU NEED:
6oz unsweetned almond milk
1 Scoop Chocolate Shakeology
1 Cup spinach
1 TBS PB2
1 TBS Vanilla Fat Free Sugar Free pudding mix (I know I know, so not clean, but that’s okay!!!)
1 tsp caramel extract
12-15 ice cubs
1/4 cup of the KIND Peanut Butter Whole Gran Clusters granola
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
Blend all the ingredients (excluding the granola) until smooth. You may have to stop and shake up a bit if it gets too thick but it will eventually blend! Pour into a bowl, top with granola, and indulge in what tastes like a monstorous DQ Blizzard when in reality you just had what is likely the healthiest meal of your day!
Share away for all your ice cream loving, peanut butter obsessed friends ❤
Ok, let’s be real for a minute.
When people ask me what I do or what fills up that little Shaker cup or my coffee mug they are USUALLY interested in giving it a try.
Then they hear the cost and they say – “I can’t afford that, I….” and before you know it they are already convinced there is no way it can work!
Trust me – I GET IT!!!! I’ve been there…and I used to think it was crazy expensive too…until I realized what all you’re getting and then it all made sense!!! You get what you pay for!!!
Let’s clarify something real quick…Shakeology is NOT a “protein shake”. Shakeology IS a meal replacement that contains some of the greatest nutrient dense superfoods in the world carefully formulated to give your body LIFE enhancing potential for a healthier mind, body and a stronger performing LIFE. It is a MEAL – it REPLACES one meal and it adds life to your life. Who wouldn’t want in on this???
I joined my first challenge group a year into my Stay at Home Mom (SAHM) life. It was February and I had left my career in public accounting the April prior. It was hard enough for me to “splurge” on the challenge pack but I really wanted a change so I went with it. I ordered and immediately cancelled the auto shipments. Again, there was NO WAY I could afford this monthly. But I also committed to myself. I had made the investment in the challenge pack and I was investing in ME. I purchased the 21-day fix and told myself I would drink these little shakes for 21 days, I would follow the plan and I would workout.
My 21-day fix results – Round 1 – never missed a shakeo!!
Guess what???? I GOT RESULTS – In just 3 short weeks….It actually worked!
Now the hard part came…I wanted another bag of the Shakeology but how????
Here’s what I did:
1) First, I signed up as a coach. Well – a discount coach – but it was the same process – I mean – who doesn’t want to save $$$. This had a big appeal and since I had already purchased a challenge pack there was no sign up fee and if I did nothing else, I would at least be saving $15/month. SWEET!
2) I stopped my prescription prenatal vitamin that was costing me $30/month.
I was nursing my 9 month old at the time and after talking to my doctor the vitamins and minerals found in my prenatal were also in Shakeology! The only thing I had to add was a separate DHA supplement!!! WINNING!!!! As always – if you’re pregnant or nursing you should talk to your doctor first. But then again you should actually consider EVERYTHING you put into your body – Shakeology included – but also that cookie, the pizza, the coffee mocha frap, the fast food – etc.. You should think about EVERYTHING you’re eating. I know when I did I quickly realized you can’t get the all natural, non-GMO nutrition found in Shakeology in other foods and personally I couldn’t think of a better food to fuel my body with and my family!!!
I was actually giving my little one MORE nutrition that before! I wonder if I could quantify the amount of money saved from not having to go to the doctor – from establishing healthy nutrition habits in my young one?!?! Ok – tangent over – back to it…
3) I was able to completely STOP by Chron’s Disease medicine – savings – $60/month. After taking medicine for nearly 7 years I started noticing very positive changes to my digestive system. I reduced my dosage on my own and after 4 months of my daily dense superfood Shakeology, regular exercise, and making that transition to clean eating…I was confident I didn’t need it anymore! I made an appointment with my GI specialist and in August got the official words to stop all medication! If nothing else – that aspect alone is enough for me to ensure this lifestyle is simply that MY LIFE!
4) We stopped eating out!!!
For almost the first 6 months – we truly just didn’t eat out! Once we made the investment in the Shakeology and investment in our own health we realized we could cook the foods we liked in the portions our bodies needed for a fraction of the cost. We ditched the pizza and wings Friday night ritual and the 1x/week dinner out. I’ll estimate that by cooking dinner in vs. ordering out 1x a week and eating dinner out 1x a week our family of four saved at least $40/week, of that my portion was at least $15…and I actually think this is a super low ball park number!!! We never messed around when we would go out – there was always an app and always a dessert so this became a huge saver for us! We also found that shakeology shaken up on the road makes for the healthiest and most convenient fast food EVER!!!
Rough guess – $60/month for myself – $120/month for my family
So as you can see – from the compound effect of the changes we made – while we were spending an additional $115 on one bag of Shakeology – I was saving $165!!! And we didn’t even address that this replaced my prior unhealthy not all natural oatmeal packet breakfast I used to eat or the ice cream we would frequently grab from Dairy Queen 🙂
And all the while this is saving me money, helping me feel better and allowing me to be the BEST mom/wife possible…I started to inspire others along the way. Those closest to me – aka – my ENTIRE FAMILY!

So my call to action for you…IF you are skeptic – just like I was…then GIVE IT A TRY!!!! What do you have to lose?!?!
Yes – you really can ORDER it, drink it for a month and if for some crazy reason you don’t agree with me…RETURN THE EMPTY BAG!!! True Story!!!
Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!!! I want to help YOU reach your goals and FEEL your best!!!
Side note: I actually became a coach initially because I wanted to get the discount and save on my monthly Shakeology! And turns out – this became one heck of a career for me! I’d love to share more about how I did it and how you can too!!! Fill out my application below if you’re interested in learning more about Beachbody Coaching!!!
Today marks 10 days out from Easter…the holiday of chocolate bunnies, sugary peeps, candy filled eggs, and temptations EVERYWHERE! I mean seriously – take a peak in the front door of Target…there is literally candy EVERYWHERE! And while its easy to think (and correct) that “one piece is A-Okay” that one piece tends to multiply and before you know it, you’re helping your kids look for their M&Ms that seem to have “disappeared”all of a sudden…trust me…I’ve been there!!!
But as Easter coincides with Spring we also know that Summer will then follow. As we sit 2 months out from Memorial Day I’ll admit I have SUMMER on my mind!!! I know I want to feel and look my best this summer and I hope you do to! So…how do we combat this holiday craziness?
Post-Easter Fix & reFRESH:
It is still hard for me to explain how drastically different I FEEL when I am eating clean, fueling my body with Shakeology – EVERY DAY – and exercising regularly! Naturally the results follow but its so much more than that. I am happier and healthier. I am a better mom and I am a better wife. I am more patient and all around HAPPIER…and I want everyone to have the opportunity to live a healthier and more fulfilling life too!
This group will provide you with daily clean eating tips, motivation, recipes so you do not get bored, and SHAKEOLOGY, a meal you can use EVERY day that is easy and convenient like those the stuff you find at those tempting Golden Arches or the overpriced lattes, but truly the HEALTHIEST MEAL OF THE DAY!
It can help you:
Lose weight – especially if you replace a meal with Shakeology every day.
Reduce junk food cravings – drink it in the morning to enjoy this benefit throughout the day
Increase your energy and feel healthier.
Improve your digestion and regularity.
Fiber and probiotics help you “get regular” so you eliminate toxins built up in your digestive system.
Proprietary blend of prebiotics and probiotics help create a healthy intestinal tract which aids digestion.
A healthier digestive system makes it easier to absorb key nutrients.
Digestive enzymes also help your body to increase the absorption of nutrients.
Long story short – Shakeology is NOT a weight loss shake, nor a protein shake… This is a HEALTH shake that is including your dense nutrition, health benefits, and includes your daily multi-vitamin!
Trust me…you can’t get this in anything else – plus it tastes like a dessert!!
Support…the “group” – what is it?
My Easter FIX clean eating and Shakeology challenge is just that! You will get 30 Days of support, motivation, tips, recipes, and be surrounded by a group of people who have the same or similar goes as you! I can’t promise that it will be easy but I can promise that if you stick with it, commit and keep pushing, you will get the results you’re looking for!
For an extra little boost, I am also giving a FREE 3 DAY REFRESHwhen you sign up with ME as YOUR coach and order your Shakeology in Home Direct (HD).

I was listening to a call earlier this week and something just clicked. There isn’t such thing as bad fitness but there is a such thing as bad nutrition! How true is that!!! So now the true question…how can we combat that variable???
Most people do not understand that nutrition is 70-80% of the variable weight loss and it is my mission to help others understand how important it is to FUEL your body with proper, whole foods that are clean, balanced and NUTRITIOUS!
This week we celebrated the 6th birthday of Shakeology which coincided with the release of the new Super Shakeology Sampler Pack! To keep the celebration going, my team and I decided to create a 6 Day challenge group focused on NUTRITION!!!
So….what do you get?
6 Shakes – aka – 6 meals
6 day meal plan to maximize your results
6 – 10 minute (free) at home workouts
6 days of recipes, support, motivation and accountability
In a nutshell, you get me – as your coach!
Who would this group be good for?
Have you been interested/curious about Shakeology but not ready to make the investment and commit to an entire 30 day supply?
Have you been tossing around joining one of my groups but you are still on the fence about this whole “challenge thing” and if it would be “your thing”?
This is your chance! Its only a 6 day commitment, you have the chance to get all 6 of the Shakeolgoy flavors for just $29.95 and I promise…it will be fun!
Literally – what do you have to lose?

With Shakeology’s 6th birthday yesterday combined with St. Patty’s day today – I had to share this amazing recipe we made last night to celebrate the combination of the two (see comments below!)
I’m sure you’ve all heard of Shamrock shakes – well here is Shamrock Shakeology! But first, just in case you’re not familiar or haven’t had the opportunity to fuel up with this incredible superfood, here’s a few fun facts about Shakeology:
#1 You can switch your flavor each month (which is perfect if you are like me and like a little variety, since we have so many flavors (including vegan) to accommodate everyone’s taste buds AND allergies to dairy, soy, gluten!
#2 You get your money back if you aren’t satisfied within 30 days (yup, seriously, enjoy for 30 days but if you’re not happy or it doesn’t meet your expectations – RETURN it – its RISK FREE!) So why not toss those skeptical thoughts aside!!!
#3 You aren’t adding to your budget but rather REPLACING what you already spend on 30 meals each month (Trust me – I didn’t think I could afford it either at first but….now we save money by drinking it!) …oh and my preferred customers get it for 25% off
#4 It has helped ME get off my Chron’s disease medicine (after 7 long years of daily use) and it even replaced my prenatal vitamin when I was nursing (approved by my doctor!) – which saved me even MORE money each month!
#5 Promotes weight loss, Improves Digestion, Curbs Cravings, takes about 2 minutes to blend as pretty much 99.9% of us are constantly busy and “never have time”!
So, for the healthiest meal of the day, which has not only helped myself reach new goals but also my family, friends, and new friends, and to be able to call this part of my “business”, I love being able to share what it’s done for me! I can’t imagine how different my life would be if I hadn’t “give it a TRY” and I accredit my continued success to Shakeology – because of how it has made me FEEL and the energy it provides me!!!
Turn that huge indulgence into the healthiest meal of YOUR day!
Ok I know this is going to sound too simple and too good to be true…but hear me out…
I really wanted a chocolate treat and I came across this in the challenge group I’m participating in along with 2000+ other Beachbody coaches and the creator of the 21-day fix/21-day fix extreme, Autumn Calabrese. They’ve been saying “no cheats” but luckily that doesn’t count Shakeology!!! YUMMMMMM!
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 Scoop Chocolate Shakeology
1 tsp coconut oil, melted
1 tsp all natural Peanut Butter/PB2 (optional)
2-3 TBS of water
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
Melt the oil in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds
Add the Shakeology (and PB)
Add water 1 TBS at a time until you reach that “brownie batter” consistency!
Try not to eat the bowl as you’re scraping every little bite off!!!
If you’re patient enough, toss it in the freezer for about 15 minutes – OMG!
The shakeology would be your “red” and the coconut oil and PB if you’re using it would count towards a teaspoon. I actually just made half of one after dinner to satisfy that snacking urge (and because I only had 1/2 a red left!) and it was the perfect amount! My hubs indulged in a full scoop!
If you’re looking for a full 30-day supply of Shakeology, check out the flavor options HERE
Not sure what flavor you’d like – but still want to give Shakeology a try? Try the flavor sampler pack to figure what which is your favorite! I am obviously a HUGE chocolate fan!!!!
If you are ever looking for help on your own health and fitness journey or just want the additional accountability join me in my next challenge group!
No joke – I have NEVER drank a shake so fast…and I’ve think I’ve had a lot of fabulous concoctions!!! I got a cold headache twice and was a tiny bit sad when it was gone but my goodness it was delish!!!!
Meet: Candy Bar Shakeo
As is above – this would be:
1 RED, 1 GREEN, 1/2 PURPLE and 2 tsps for all my 21-day fix followers!!!
But I have played around with this and will say although the banana makes for a more smooth texture, the taste is fine without it!!! So after the first day I have been leaving out the banana. You can also use PB2 rather than the all natural PB if you prefer which will cut down on the calories/fat.
On the flip side I made this for my hubs with unsweetened almond milk (1 Yellow) and a full banana (2 purples) and it was literally like a Dairy Queen Blizzard!!! The pure almond extract is definitely what makes it!!!
Let me know if you give this a try!!!
Want to try Shakeology??? You can get your own 30 day supply HERE!
