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—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.

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!

Summer Zen challenge

Summer zen event photo.jpg

I am super EXCITED to offer a brand new FREE group this month to my followers and customers!! I’ve been working on it for a while and its officially READY TO SHARE!!!

Because the summer travel hustle is winding down and the Back to School craziness is on the horizon!

I’m thinking a little meditation 101, 30 minutes (or less) yoga sessions and some healthy easy summer recipes to nourish our bodies is in order – what do you think?!

Oh, and yes. It really is free! I’ll hook you up with virtual streaming of the workouts from Beachbody On Demand and you’ll have 14 days to see what this jazz is all about!!!

And who knows…maybe JUST maybe we’ll head into this next phase a little more ZEN-LIKE

***TOGETHER WE ARE STRONGER***

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.

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—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.

Fab 5 Summer Search

What did you want to be when you were growing up?

A teacher?
A doctor?
A mom? 
An accountant?
A lawyer?
A nurse?
An acrobat?

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!

2017-06-25 21.02.33.jpg

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.

black-and-white-pic-with-aub-and-colt

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.

Coaching Opportunity picture

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!
