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.
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:
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—and although it’s a challenging week—you can help ward off your cravings with Shakeology, the superfood supplement shake designed to support your nutrition goals without sacrificing results.
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!

Today 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.
We enjoyed ourselves – stayed in control and allowed ourselves a small indulgence.
Then we came back and BOUNCED right back on track!
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!!!
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:
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

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!
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.
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.
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—and although it’s a challenging week—you can help ward off your cravings with Shakeology, the superfood supplement shake designed to support your nutrition goals without sacrificing results.
I am starting fresh with my challengers along with my husband and here is our game plan for week 1:
I know the possibilities and I know each and every one of the ladies who have committed with me on this journey have the potential to achieve all the goals they set forth to achieve and its my role to help them get there.
If this looks like a program you may be interested in and you would like to be a part of my next 21 Day Online Health & Fitness Challenge – then fill out the application below.
Because amongst the travels and parties and summer nights around the fire and kids home from school and laid back vibe that SUMMER brings – it can be far too easy to lose sight of YOU time – MOM time – BALANCE – and all the things you’ve worked for leading up to summer summer summer TIME because, well you’re just out of the norm.
And sometimes you just need to know how to SURVIVE so you can then THRIVE!
By request, I am excited to bring back my SUMMER SURVIVAL accountability group!
A place to lean in on for support and tips and ideas and motivation to allow you to, you know, have your cake and eat it too and maybe just maybe have the cocktail without the guilt!
We’ll focus on how to plan for vacation and top tips to maintain your fitness routine while out of routine
We’ll share some grilling favorites to keep the palate happy without missing the BBQ favorites
We’ll chat summer cocktail swaps so you can still enjoy the late nights with neighbors without downing a days worth of calories in a single sitting
And more importantly we’ll have fun, build relationships and set a solid foundation…not for a D.I.E.T. but for a lifestyle that is maintainable – beyond summer and as a way of LIVING!
I’ll be honest I didn’t have that ONE thing but I knew that I wanted to be SUCCESSFUL and figured I’d rock a fancy suit on the top floor of some big fancy building in NYC with a corner office!
I had a strong work ethic from the days of weekend babysitting as a 12 year old through double jobs in college through landing my big girl career in public accounting.
But then the unthinkable happened:
I. BECAME. A. MOM.
And guess what?
That office on the top floor was not important anymore.
I wanted TIME at home with my daughter.
And after working away her first two years we made the family choice to become a single family home after the arrival of our little guy.
It was hard.
The adjustment to SAHM life was hard.
I missed my independence
And did I mention being a SAHM was hard?
But then the unthinkable happened again and A NEW DOOR opened.
This new door was going to give me the opportunity to live in the best of both worlds.
To have some independence back but to still be MOM.
This opportunity came at a time that I wasn’t looking and never realized HOW MUCH I needed it.
And while my office -covered in pictures from my little Miss with paint stains on my desk compliments of my kids-is a far cry from that top office in the big Apple….I wouldn’t have it any other way!!!
I chose the path others run from because it’s DIFFERENT.
I wa willing to put the work in no matter what iteration thought because I BELIEVED in the business.
And you know what—that same opportunity is there for you too!
I’m launching a very special NEW COACH training this month as I SEARCH FOR MY NEXT FAB 5!
I am taking on 5 EAGER-driven-willing to WORK HARD ladies to start in my July new coach training academy.
Who are the FAB 5?
They’re 5 fabulous ladies who want to be a part of my One. Fit. Fam.
5 ladies who are ready to commit to these next 3 months with me – and my TEAM and make this SUMMER COUNT!
5 ladies who are ready to join and embrace my new: ME – WE – YOU training program…
You see first you join me! You see how this challenge group stuff works (because helping others is the root of this business) and you follow along with a fitness program and Shakeology so you can not just talk the talk but walk the walk. This is crucial!
In month two we work together. We begin our walk through the business roadmap. I walk you through HOW you get started & through WHAT you need to do.
You’ll complete my New Coach Training program and together we LAUNCH your business! Its a team effort from the start!
As we start our 3rd month together you’ll begin to lead, continue to grow, and take part in the next leadership opportunities offered through our team trainings. I’m still here…like I said – I’m always HERE but at this point you’ll have the confidence and ability to step out and go for it!
***This group is limited to 5 for a reason***
Because I believe that in order to succeed you need the mentorship.
I will not be taking on more than 5 ladies this months so that I can be confident I am giving my best me to those who invest with me!
If you’ve been waiting to do this – thinking about it – doubting your abilities and holding back. I simply ask you to STOP.
Go all in!
What do you have to lose? Its time to CREATE THE LIFE YOU ARE LIVING FOR!!!
And just like that….it’s a wrap!!!42 days
Hours of meal planning
Hours of meal prep
6 weeks of discipline
3.8 pounds GONE
5.5 inches worked off
And a gentle reminder that if you want something you’ve never had you have to do something you’ve never done!!!
I am forever grateful for this opportunity to participate in the exclusive pre-launch SHIFT SHOP Testgroup.
Before I became a COACH, I was a challenger. I needed to do something for ME and this was it. But I got out of that challenger mindset and this program brought me back to that feeling.
That feeling of pure excitement and accomplishments of completing a fitness challenge, being diligent with my nutrition and achieving the goals I set forth for myself.
It came at a time that I needed this opportunity and I am more excited than ever to help other women MAKE THE SHIFT.
Day 1. Day 21. Day 42.
You can preorder TODAY and be ready to rock with us July 13th in my exclusive SHIFT SHOP LAUNCH PARTY!!!
This program is LEGIT and is going to transform so many lives!!!!
