Transformation Spotlight:

I am super excited to share this guy’s Transformation Pics.

Not only because he ROCKED it but because he is my HUBBY and we did this TOGETHER!

Kyles Shift Shop transformation .jpg

3 weeks ago this stud and I committed to a 21-day journey together

We pressed play each morning in our basement…

We ate normal foods you would buy at the grocery store…

Shift Shop Meal Plan Kyle week of July 24 with logo and emailShift Shop Meal plan week 3 week of 8_7_17 Kyle

We gave our body a daily dose of dense superfoods nutrition every.single.day…

We enjoyed an off meal each week…

We helped each other get up and workout on the days we didn’t want to…
sweaty hugs with kyle
& we talked each other out of diving headfirst in to the Dairy Queen drive through (more than once)…

We were not perfect but we stayed COMMITTED and each time we got a little off track we got right back on…we leaned in to each other and our fellow challengers.

I think it’s safe to say the whole “rapid results program” lived up to its name¬†ūüíÉūüíÉūüíÉ
The results are IN: 10 flipping pounds GONE…his clothes are fitting WAYYYYY better!!!

And above all else-he not only let me TAKE the pictures but he is letting me SHARE THEM and if this inspires YOU or maybe you to share with your SPOUSE to GET STARTED now then please join me in celebrating a little#TransformationTuesday¬†action & Let’s CHAT!¬†

The final RAMP UP

It is “EASY” to workout for 30 minutes or 45 minutes or even 60 minutes a day.

The “HARD” part is controlling what you put in your body the other 23 hours.

strength quote.jpg

I was told that in my very first challenge group over 3 years ago and I have never forgot it — and I share this with my challengers often BECAUSE ITS SO TRUE!!!

We are quick to think to ourselves “but I worked out I DESERVE this treat/drink/fried amazingness – but my friends this is where you undo all the hard work you’ve put in!

And with the RAMP UP approach in The Shift Shop – its the nutrition as much as the killer sweat sessions that drive those jaw dropping results!

So what goes down in week 3: 

Shift Shop week 3.jpg

This is where everything comes together. You are working out at your peak while eating your cleanest. Starchy carbs are eliminated to make way for your best results‚ÄĒand although it‚Äôs a challenging week‚ÄĒyou can help ward off your cravings with Shakeology, the superfood supplement shake designed to support your nutrition goals without sacrificing results.

2017-08-03 08.11.12-6

While I follow Plan A and my hubs follows Plan D – you can see the meal plans are SIMILAR its more the quantity of food that differs!

We’re excited to push ourselves this final week and really feel the full impact of the Ramp up approach IN THE SHOP!

Week 2 in the SHOP

1 week down and 2 to go!

Change is hard at first shift shop week 1Today our RAMP UP fitness program is taking us to 35 minute workouts with alternating HIIT and strength training days with a rest/active rest day on Sunday. Let me just be honest. I am RESTING on Sunday!

We were faced with our first “big” temptation of the program last weekend as we traveled to my home town for a family reunion. Our plan of attack: BE PREPARED.

We sliced apples & red peppers, took plenty of water and Shakeology packets for a quick meal on the go! And for those temptations that would later come – a batch of Cookie Dough Energy balls to the rescue.

Shift Shop week 2 cookie dough balls
We enjoyed ourselves – stayed in control and allowed ourselves a small indulgence.

Then we came back and BOUNCED right back on track!

shift shop week 2 meal

Too often people allow their travels and slip ups to totally derail them but you only FAIL if you STOP trying.

Today the 5am alarm went off and we were up and at it!!!

Shift Shop week 2

 

The SHIFT has us changing up our meal plan this week reducing our starchy carbs and increasing our greens and proteins along with the 10 minute increase in the workout length!

Here’s what our week looks like:

Meal Plan Week of July 31

The ENERGIZE is something I drink DAILY before my workouts and the Recover/Shakeology is a post workout replenish! I prefer the Performance recover but too much dairy causes me belly and skin issues!

I’ve tried to do a few days of an extra Shakeology shaken with water and a few days of Recover but this week I am going to try a half and half combo! It makes such a difference in the way I feel and my sore muscles are telling me to try something new!

I am excited to kick off another round of the SHIFT SHOP!

In just two weeks one of my launch party guests is down 8 pounds and another is down 4!

Another challenger is down 5 in just WEEK 1

Another pulled out a pair of shorts that were “embarrassingly uncomfortable” less than a week ago

And the list goes on and on!!!

How the Shift Shop Meal Plan works

I couldn’t be more EXCITED to officially kick off my Shift Shop LAUNCH PARTY tomorrow!!!

dont talk shift SHIFT SHOP

New programs are ALWAYS exciting – and bring new light into my home fitness world and what I can do for others but after participating in the OFFICIAL COACH TEST GROUP this spring and seeing first hand the POSSIBILITIES of this program I have learned we all have so much MORE potential that lies deep within us and when you MAKE THE SHIFT incredible things can happen.

And now – I get to instill that potential and BELIEF into others!

You dont' have to be great to start

The workouts are amazing and the motivation provided by Chris Downing, the trainer paving the way is unparalleled but honestly – the FUEL we put into our bodies is what DRIVES the results you can see!

BUT – HOW?

How does it work???

HERE’S THE BREAKDOWN:

WEEK 1 Get rid of the foods that are holding you back and start with a better balance of carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats with carbs being at the forefront, mostly from fruits and veggies with a few starches (yams and potatoes) and legumes (beans and peas) thrown in.

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Potatoes.PNG

WEEK 2 As your body adapts and the workouts increase in length, it’s time to accelerate your results and cut back on the starchy carbs while increasing proteins, veggies, and healthy fats.

2017-05-26-09-46-33.jpg

WEEK 3 Here is where everything comes together. You are working out at your peak while eating your cleanest. Starchy carbs are eliminated to make way for your best results‚ÄĒand although it‚Äôs a challenging week‚ÄĒyou can help ward off your cravings with Shakeology, the superfood supplement shake designed to support your nutrition goals without sacrificing results.

Final week to make the SHIFT

5 down and 1 to go.

2017-06-09 06.22.39

As we launch into this final week of our 6 week test group journey a few thoughts come to mind:

  1. I have realized I am stronger than I thought. 2017-06-08 06.55.42
  2. Accountability is one of the most underused POWERFUL tools in one’s fitness journey and when you LEAN in on it – it WORKS!
  3. Working out beyond 30 minutes is FUN and the results are worth the extra effort2017-06-08 08.05.00
  4. When you take a step back to MENTALLY get focused you can bust through any barriers you previously thought existed

2017-06-07 17.25.13

This program is comprised of alternating HIIT/Cardio workouts and Strength training workouts.

Week 1 begins at 25 minutes

Week 2 is 35 minutes

Week 3 is 45 minutes

When you begin ROUND 2 you go back to week 2

Followed by week 3

And week 4 – which tops them all with 50 minute workouts.

2017-06-12 05.54.54

In the beginning I thought a big old HECK – TO – THE – NO!

But you know what?! I’ve realized that when you are really in the zone 50 minutes doesn’t seem so challenging any more!

2017-06-10 12.43.41

I have been able to adapt to being on the road, traveling, vacations, baseball games, parties and more but its not because I am committed to a DIET – its because I committed to making this a LIFESTYLE change and its paying off 10-FOLD!

I have LOVED this fitness journey but I am more excited to be able to BRING YOU along WITH ME! And the date is fast approaching!

2017-06-08 22.38.42I am taking applicants for my SHIFT SHOP LAUNCH party to begin upon the program’s release on 7/13/17.

If you are ready to commit – work for it – and join forces with me and other women who are RIGHT THERE with you – then fill out the form below.

How to enjoy vacation without undoing your fitness results

Hearing the amazing news that I was SELECTED as one of the participants in the SHIFT SHOP TESTGROUP was like a dream come true.

Maegan Blinka, Megan Blinka, Maegan Blinka Beachbody Coach, What is the Shift Shop, Chris Downing's new fitness program, Crossfit program you can do at home, Example Shift Shop meal plan, Shift Shop Meal plan example, Home fitness program, Results with home fitness programs, How to take before pictures, Posed before pictures for Shift Shop

Then I looked at the calendar – Round 1¬†started with the week of my son’s birthday & Round 2 started with a week long vacation with our friends and family.

I immediately thought of the hurdles but quickly turned it around and imagined:

How good would it feel to not only get AMAZING results leading up to our beach vacation but to actually come home from that trip with those SAME RESULTS!?!?

2017-06-03 07.39.18I don’t know about you but even with a very healthy balanced lifestyle, ¬†I will admittedly work *extra* hard¬†leading up to an event and let the food and emotions run wild once the big day/trip comes.

It seems silly – I mean why work so hard to undo it?

How great would it be if you didn’t come home from vacation with guilt and another long(er) road ahead of you?!?!?!

And so…that’s just what I did!

Maegan Blinka, Megan Blinka, Maegan Blinka Beachbody Coach, What is the Shift Shop, Chris Downing's new fitness program, Crossfit program you can do at home, Example Shift Shop meal plan, Shift Shop Meal plan example, Home fitness program, Results with home fitness programs, How to take before pictures, Posed before pictures for Shift Shop, Example meal plan shift shop, Shift Shop Meal Plan A, Shift Shop week 3 workout calendar, Speed 45, Strength 45, Progress results, 9 Day fitness results, Progress results with the Shift Shop, Final Round 1 results, 21 day home fitness results

I wrapped up Round 1 of the Shift Shop testgroup nearly 5¬†pounds lighter and with increased confidence which propelled me into a 2 day travel trip and week long trip at the beach with habits in tact and goals that couldn’t be squashed!

Was I perfect?

2017-05-31 08.04.01Nope! Not at all.

But I stuck to my guns and never felt like I was missing out or “couldn’t” eat what everyone else was eating. I simply ate what my body craved and if I wanted to taste a bite of ice cream or sample the mac and cheese I did – but you know what…I never felt the need for more than a taste!

So how can YOU go on your next vacation or weekend getaway without reversing the work you put in beforehand:

  • PACK SNACKS for the car. And no I’m not meaning bars and pretzels! My road trip snacks included:
    • Cut up apple for easy drive/snacking
    • Red peppers
    • Over hard eggs
    • Roasted veggies
    • Shakeology and coconut water filled shaker cup
    • Strawberries
    • Fruity gum
  • Allow your friends to know you’re¬†working on becoming a healthier version of YOU and if they’re truly your friends they will support YOU
  • 2 words: SPARKLING WATER
    • There were¬†adult beverages going down but you know what – I never had ONE! And I didn’t feel I had to! I sipped a sparkling water of choice and still had a blast at game night, watched the PENS playoff hockey game and lounged by the pool without feeling like I was missing out on the fun! Because I didn’t want it. I didn’t want the extra calories and when you don’t WANT it you don’t feel like you’re MISSING a thing!
    • 2017-05-31 07.51.46
  • Plan to workout daily
    • PICK A TIME: While I was initially thinking I would get up at 6 and work it – I didn’t! I talked to my hubs who was cool with us enjoying the morning for as long as it would last until the littles woke up – so we did!!! Some mornings I got them breakfast before I pressed play some mornings¬†he took the reigns. They were up by 7 each day – but I enjoyed the no alarm. ¬†But each morning I had some company with me and you know what – I LOVED it!!!

 

  • THE POINT: Just make sure you DO IT. Pack weights or a resistance band if you need it or go with a no equipment workout like CORE DE FORCE or PIYO and keep moving!
  1. Grocery shop
    • Obviously your storage situations¬†will vary but with¬†our beach trip we were in a house! The kiddos and I stopped at the farmers market on the way down and then hit up the¬†grocery store once we got there. On pizza night I ordered a salad. On Taco Tuesday I whipped up a Taco Salad and splurged on a few chips – key word: FEW. When we did the steamer buckets I fried some eggs and enjoyed leftover veggies!!!
  2. Drink your Shakeology daily

Not only does it help with¬†cravings but its an easy meal to pack and make and can be enjoyed any time of the day! It was breakfast a few times, lunch a few times and even a late night snack one night! This is one meal/snack that feels like a splurge BUT ISN’T so enjoy it when you can!

 

For the first time EVER I came home from a week long vacation without the guilt.

I sat down Sunday made my meal plan for the meal plans for the hubs and I

My imperfectly perfect results from round 1 in the SHOP

Today I am 21 days stronger – mentally & physically – and I found a FOCUS within me that I didn’t know was possible.¬†Shift Shop Round 1 results selfie with text & website.jpg

Being a part of the first Shift Shop test group was such a privilege but I’ll be honest, being surrounded by some pretty amazing people with some jaw dropping, awe-inspiring 21 day transformations left me feeling a little bit like “just another before and after” comparison in the mix.

My results were nothing stellar – 4.7 pounds and 4.25 inches – but as the self-doubt crept in I realized that it was perhaps my GAINS were where I needed to put my focus. Afterall – this was ONLY 21 days.

2017-05-24 06.14.35-1

Be a Pineapple Stand Tall Wear a crown Be sweet on the inside

I am a mom – not a fitness expert.
My goal to be healthy, strong and a positive role model for my kids.

And you know what – I am healthier, stronger and my kids seem to like the mommy who isn’t asking for an afternoon movie rest time these days…SO I CONSIDER IT A WIN.

me and kids sunday morning.jpg

I found a way to celebrate, to rid stress, and to ENJOY company – without needing a crutch…a crutch of food. That so often comes with all those situations.

2017-05-22 13.31.03

I wasn’t perfect throughout these 21 days but my goodness I tried REALLY hard to stick to the meal plan

  • I enjoyed my son’s birthday cake. But just a slice – at the party – and not the ENTIRE week that followed. And for me – that was a win.
  • And I only had ONE cookie during all of his birthday celebrations. That one cookie was delicious but stopping at 1 is pretty much unheard of for me!
  • I tasted¬†the (leftover birthday) cookie a few weeks later that my daughter said didn’t taste right. With a bite. Then a second to be sure – which for the record it was just fine – but then I tossed it. That was a win.
  • I¬†got diligent with my meal prep and planning and wasted (next to) NOTHING during these 21 days and only dined out 2x. Saving money – more time at home – THAT is a win for me.

Shift Shop testgroup week 2 traveling

But perhaps my greatest GAIN was the strength to STOP FINISHING the leftovers on the kids plates. I mean WHYYYYY does that lingering bite of mac & cheese feel the need to jump in my mouth?!?! You know what…IT DOESN’T! It doesn’t need to and if I can stop the impulse snacks for 21 days those actions clearly don’t need to be part of the norm.

Round 1 Shift Shop results selfie with logo

And while the number “losses” weren’t HUGE I found success in my other Non Scale Victories (NSVs):

  • My wedding rings are more loose/comfortable – which I attribute to elimination of common inflammatory foods (i.e. that darn GLUTEN!)
  • Overall my CLOTHES fit better – not a drop in “size” but the muffin top and chubby pinchers that hung over my shorts and jeans is gone
  • I am more AWARE of the foods I choose to fuel my body and how different foods impact me differently
  • I¬†pushed myself PHYSICALLY harder than any other¬†program. Some of the workouts were LONG – LONGER than my typical 30 but I found a way to push past the mental block and continue beyond my normal to achieve my results.
  • Above all else I am simply MORE confident in my skin and you cannot put a number or a price on that!!!

My challengers would often praise my WILLpower I was demonstrating at the different events and travels we enjoyed these past three weeks but I realized it was the WHYpower that pulled me through.

Because nothing tastes as good – as being fit & healthy feels.

2017-05-25 19.00.57

Don’t all late night snacks include leftover grilled chicken?!!?!

And I will continually strive to find the balance and changes that make me – ME!

The first 21 days have built the habits, these next 21 will challenge me & THE LAST 21 will EMPOWER CHANGES!!!

Round 1 shift shop results front posed with website

21 days of focused nutrition and consistent workouts

Shift Shop Round 1 results back with website

21 days of BELIEVING that YES I CAN and YES I WILL

Shift Shop Round 1 results side with website

21 days of knowing that what I am doing today will ripple into all areas of my life in the future

But again, this isn’t a 21 day “thing”.¬†
This is a LIFESTYLE for me. 

I’m continuing on and I am looking for those who want to walk beside me in this journey of LIFE.

Whether you’re looking for to prep NOW for the public release in July – OR – whether you’re just ready to GET STARTED yourself I can help! I am launching two new challenges this month and am taking applicants for EARLY ENROLLMENT!

That little something something to satisfy a sweet tooth craving?

Or maybe you’re favorite past time is licking the cookie dough bowl (even when mom says no) and sneaking in that last little bite of dough???

I am one who honestly prefers the chocolate chip cookie DOUGH over the cookie and also one who is now avoiding gluten (because I bloat like a mad woman) and dairy (because my skin breaks out like a teenage girl) and I am ELATED to find a healthier sweet alternative that fits my dietary preferences and well, tastes AMAZING.

MEET:

Cookie Dough Energy Balls

Total Time: 15 min.
Prep Time: 15 min.
Cooking Time: None
Yield: 13 servings, 1 ball each

WHAT YOU NEED: 
¬Ĺ cup all-natural almond butter
¬ľ cup raw honey
¬Ĺ cup finely chopped raw almonds (I used slivers and they worked great!)
2¬Ĺ scoops Vegan¬†Vanilla Shakeology¬†(you could use the regular but the taste of the vegan is wayyyyyy better!)
2 Tbsp. mini semi-sweet (or dark chocolate) chocolate chips (I use the ENJOY LIFE brand Рfound at Target #yourewelcomemoms) 

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. More specifically: I found it easiest to mix the dry almonds and Shakeology, then I added the almond butter, mixed well, then added the honey, mixed well again, and stirred in the chocolate chips. 
2. Roll into thirteen balls, about 1-inch in diameter each. (I used the pampered chef small scoop and it actually got 20 balls Рso I adjusted the serving size to be 1.5 balls to match the nutritional breakdown below)
