Stripped Clean Eating Challenge

change vs stay the same quote.PNGLet’s pause for a minute…

Think about that.

Do you want to make a change?

Or

Stay the same.

Are you READY-emotionally and physically for that CHANGE?

Change isn’t easy. It can be hard. There can be moments of doubt. But my goodness when you reach that goal it feels pretty darn amazing.

motivation fail quote.png

Let me share for a minute my moment when that desire to change finally outweighed my desire to stay the same…

I was 3 most post-partum with my second child. I was 27 years old, holding on to about 5 or 7 ‘extra’ pounds at that point and down right – EXHAUSTED (what mom of an infant isn’t?!?!)

For the longest time I just thought new moms were supposed to be tired all the time…but then I realized…

It just didn’t seem right.

I was young, a stay at home mom of 2 and I wasn’t overweight. I had all these “things” i wanted to do with my kiddos and around the house and being EXHAUSTED wasn’t really an option. Not anymore!

But I am no fool.

I knew the problem.

i lost my excuses when I found my results

It was my nutrition and lack of ANY type of exercise was the root of the cause…

So I took the plunge and  made the commitment to change all the things that I knew were bringing me down and low and behold…I FOUND MY RESULTS.

Sure, the portion containers were intimidating at first. I had never measured ANYTHING.

I was a bit reluctant to think there was really a program out there that could help you lose “up to 15 pounds in 21 days”.

And don’t get me started on the hesitations to Shakeology – I thought it was crazy expensive and truly expected a chalky milk drink!

But like I said, I was ready to make that commitment. So I pushed the doubts aside and jumped in…all IN and I have never looked back!

My passion, my business and a huge part of my life has become helping other women – and other moms – find what I was looking for 2 years ago.

To find that solution to a problem, to support others in their journey, to guide them and teach them so they too know just how amazing their bodies are designed to feel when treated right!

So let me go back to how I started this post…

Does YOUR desire to change outweigh your desire to stay the same?

If the answer is maybe or I think or perhaps, then I can’t help you right now…

BUT – If the answer is Heck to the YES then read on…

Because I am so excited to announce my first ever STRIPPED Clean Eating Challenge.

This group will be different from others in that we will be focusing on those specific foods that are holding you back from reaching your own goals!
You will have the option to pick your workout program and I will help you find the one right for you!
And yes – that chalky milk that I was so afraid of in the beginning – you’ll be trying that too! Because, well, in all honesty I couldn’t have been more far off on how amazing that superfood meal replacement shake truly is!!!!
We will go through goal setting and we will start and end our group – TOGETHER!!!
At the the end of our 21 days together  you will also have the option to also do the 3 day refresh to get the best results possible.
And don’t worry – I will be in the trenches with you! I have our annual beach vacation on the horizon and my best friends wedding later this summer! Not only do I want to look my best – but I want to FEEL my best too! I am going to be BUSY!
So if you’ve made it this far I am thinking you just may be at that point too! That point where your desire to change outweighs your desire to stay the same – so let’s do this!!!

21-day fix week 1 Recap – prepped for week 2

One week down…2 to go!!!!

I’ll be honest…I thought I was kind of sort of going to breeze through this program since I had been used to the Extreme program however…that was not the case!!!

sore today strong tomorrow, progress through week 1 of the 21 day fix, sore not sorry, Maegan Blinka, push your limits, just do it, Autumn calabrese quotes, 21 day fix progress, 21 day fix meal plan,

This week really challenged me but-I did the best I could, used the highest weights I felt I could handle and when I needed to…dropped down!

I had one small hiccup on Tuesday as I found myself with what I self-diagnosed was turf toe. Out of NOWHERE my left big toe was red, hot to touch, swollen and very painful. I asked around and while the general consensus was gout – I have pretty much zero of the common causes for gout and much more likely to be turf toe.

Maegan Blinka, 21 day fix spicy meal, quinoa zucchini bowlRegardless I took a much needed yet dreaded REST DAY Wednesday, prepped some meals tried this new recipe for SPICY QUINOA AND ZUCCHINI BOWL and more importantly rested my foot!

I changed up my planned workout schedule by going with Pilates on Thursday (with lots of modifications and one-footed planks) and then Lower Fix Friday and Cardio Saturday at an event in my hometown ran by one of my coaches. I will say I love the flexibility

I’ll admit I missed my favorite Dirty 30!!!! But I’ll get it in this week for sure!!!

Nothing like getting knee deep in your weekly meal plan before realizing your planned 3-day refresh is going to have to wait for next week as Thursday will be spent prepping for Friday’s colonoscopy 😬

Yes – you read that right – this 29 year old heathy mama has a scheduled COLONOSCOPY!!!

After having huge successes last year with the addition of my superfood magic potion Shakeology and the switch to clean eating I was completely taken off all of my Chron’s disease meds and this will determine whether or not I can forgo these lovely procedures until I hit 50 like the rest of the population! 

As anyone who has ever been through one of these before knows, the prep is far from enjoyable and while I am in no way looking forward to Thursday I cannot wait to hear the results Friday morning!

Please say a prayer for me 🙏

That being said if anyone would like to join me in a little SUMMER KICKOFF next week I’d love some accountability partners!!!!

Whether you’re looking to lose those last 10 pounds and slim down for swim suit season or tone up or begin a journey to a brand new YOU – it all starts somewhere and it starts with the decision to CHANGE!!!!
