Here we go again…21 Day Fix Week 1

I decided to take it back to the basics…back to the program that changed my life, that got me hooked on a healthy, fit and balanced life!!! 2015-06-01 05.57.27

—–>That helped me learn that dedicating 30 minutes to exercise daily will improve more than just your waistline.  

—–>That helped me learn about portions and what types of food choices would FUEL my body and not only get me the results in terms of numbers but maximize the way I feel on the inside too!

I’ve been a bit lax and a bit too comfortable and slowly I’ve been getting away from my normal 80/20 maintenance rule and its been more like 70/30 or even 60/40 on the weekends I am feeling and seeing the side effects!

So…Today not only marks day 1 for my challengers but also for myself – to recommit – and together we will be COUNTING DOWN TO SUMMER with the 21-day fix.

I got too caught up in my role as a coach that I forgot to be a challenger too!

So here it goes:

Before pictures are taken, meal plan is set, and I’m heading to the grocery store today!

21 Day Fix Meal Plan Week of 6_1_15 imageYou’ll see I tend to eat the same types of foods throughout the week…it makes it easier to plan, easier to prepare and easier to adjust when I’m away from home! We are busy busy busy as I’m sure most of you are too…so what I’ve learned is to stay on track you have to be prepared! I will plan to make my Mancakes the night before so they’re ready to go as I head to the park etc with my kiddos.. I also  planned for an easy to pack apple and almond afternoon snack! No excuses…Summer is on the way!!!

Have you been thinking about doing the 21-day fix or simply doing SOMETHING to get back into the swing of things???

Pick your fix few words

This is your time!!! Beachbody released the June promotions and both the 21-Day Fix and the 21-Day Fix Extreme are the challenge pack promotions this month available with Shakeology or with Shakeology and a 3-Day refresh!

How many of you treat yourself to a DQ Blizzard or Fro-Yo with the kiddos or grab an iced coffee on the way to work – a few times a week? 
(Or ehm…ehm… almost every single day)?! 
So, that used to be us. No joke – I remember the summer I had my precious little princecess we were at DQ at least 4x a week. What can I say – WE LOVE ICE CREAM!!!! And I used that whole “I’m breastfeeding so I can eat anything I put my eyes on” excuse – oh those were the days!
However, the cost 💲💲💲 (AND calories) add up….and pretty quickly 😯And while I still enjoy our occasional treats – they are no longer daily! But that’s because I’ve started enjoying my own frozen chocolatey goodness – EVERY SINGLE DAY of the year and well, there’s no complaints in our house!

Hot for the Holidays – Special Offer

 Halloween promotion offer on beachbody products, Maegan Blinka, Beachbod promo,

Happy Halloween week!!!!

I am super excited to share with you a very *SPECIAL* and *EXCLUSIVE* Team Beachbody offer that is good until October 31st at Midnight!!!  

I know that this time of year is especially hard to commit to spending money on yourself.  Afterall, Christmas is just around the corner and it seems like there’s one thing after another – I get it!!!  Money is always tight this time of year but this is also the time when most people feel the stress of their pants tightening and their energy plummeting due to the change in weather and the fact that there are GIANT bowls of candy EVERYWHERE you turn – I get it!!! With all the Halloween parties and then Thanksgiving and Christmas and the New Year just around the corner it can get plain out crazy busy…but don’t let those events stop you from reaching your goals! You deserve to be comfortable in your body! Happy with how you feel inside and out!!! The worst thing that you can do for yourself is throw your hands up in the air and give in to the temptations all around you.  For your health and to make the decision a little easier on your bottom line I an going to offer you a little something extra to make today your time to COMMIT! So are you ready to get HOT FOR THE HOLIDAYS???

challenge group, hot for the holidays, 21 day fix support group,

 

So what is a challenge pack?

 fitness support nutrition successA challenge pack is truly a “package deal” – combining the fitness aspect, nutrition, and support to really set you up for success!!! And – Anyone who purchases a challenge pack as my customer and upgrades to a preferred customer membership will earn $25 Amazon or DICKS Sporting Goods gift card that you can then use however you’d like! New workout gear? New weights? Some chia seeds or flax seeds? Whatever you’d like – its yours!!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with what a challenge pack is, let me explain!  A challenge pack is a fitness program of your choice such as the brand new P90, Insanity, PIYO, 21-day fix, etc… and Shakeology (the healthiest meal of the day and the most delicious and convenient!!!) combined with a free 30 day trial of the club membership, plus, me as your beachbody coach, a spot in my HOT FOR THE HOLIDAYS challenge group all at a discounted price!  It is the total package. The support you’ll receive from the challenge group is PRICELESS and the timing is perfect. We will work on the first 21 days to get you into some healthy habits and learn portion control as we head into Thanksgiving…we’ll take a few days off to enjoy our family and friends and then jump right back into Round 2 just in time to look amazing in that holiday dress as Christmas approaches!  When you purchase a challenge pack Beachbody also waives the $40 coach sign up, to allow you to become a coach for free!!! What do you have to lose except maybe a few unwanted pounds?!

 So if you are in need of a complete overhaul with your health and fitness then this is the way to go.  As with other weight loss or nutrition programs out there you usually get half of the equation.  So you get the fitness with a gym membership, but lack the nutrition or with something like Isogenix or weight watchers you get some form of nutrition but no fitness component.

With Beachbody you get the expertise of the trainers who have developed the fitness programs, the nutrition guide and the online tools to help you plan out your meals and snacks plus the accountability of the small group and me as your coach!!  I will check in with you daily to help you create and reach your own personal goals.

Hanging out with some of the trainers - Autumn Calabrese (21-day fix), Tony Horton (P90 and P90X series) Shaun T (Insanity, T25)

 

Why Should I upgrade to a coach?  What is the benefit?  Even if you are someone who has zero interest in actively coaching other people like I do this is still a great deal.  As a Beachbody Coach you get 25% off of everything you purchase.  That means, Shakeology, each and every fitness program plus all of the nutritionals and supplements like Energy and Endurance, Results and Recovery, etc…  So if you are someone who drinks Shakeology every day or even twice a day it makes sense to purchase it at $99 a bag instead of $130 a bag.  If you drink shakeology for one year you end up saving roughly around $150.00.  That is crazy!!!  That is even with the $15.95 per month business service fee!  Your shakeology is still cheaper!!!

So, what are you waiting for?!  Do you want to change your life?  Do you want to get in the best shape of your life and have a community of support to help you get there?  Then don’t delay, sign up with a challenge pack by going to my site  clicking the coach tab and be a coach.  Then, it will have you fill out all the identifying information, choose your challenge pack and voila you can immediately be on your way to a new you!!! You could be sharing your top 5 changes next!

 

how beachbody has changed my life, positive changes, positive impact of a challenge group, time for a change, lifestyle change

 

Now, let’s say that you are someone who wants to make being a Beachbody coach a supplemental or full time income.  Then, signing up with the challenge pack is the way to be proof that the products work yourself and gives you a great way to share with others the real benefits of the products and programs!!  As your coach, you will never be alone!  I will be there to mentor and support you every step of the way!!!  Within 24 hours I will set up an initial call to get you started and add you to the 30 day exclusive new coach camp to give you my personal one on one mentoring until you feel confident on your own!!!

Don’t wait, there are a limited quantity of gift cards!  First come first to receive the deal!!!!

Grilled Butternut Squash-Clean eating style

Grilled squash, grilled butternut squash, Maegan Blinka, honey glazed butternut squash, healthy dinner side, clean eating,

One of my favorite things of fall is all the winter squash! Squash is easily one of my favorite veggies. But…confession time – I usually cheat and buy the cubed butternut squash from the grocery store!!! Its just so dang hard to cut those things in half! But, I had been staring at this little guy on my counter for over a week so I figured it was time to brave it! I solicited some ideas from my facebook friends on some yummy recipes and although there were quite a few impressive sounding ideas…I couldn’t pass up the grilled option given we were sitting on a very unseasonably warm late October day!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Butternut Squash
  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2-3 TBS Honey

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

Grilled squash, grilled butternut squash, Maegan Blinka, honey glazed butternut squash, healthy dinner side, clean eating,

Steps for making grilled butternut squash

  1. Wash the butternut squash thoroughly
  2. Add the balsamic vinegar to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook for about 5 minutes and add honey
  3. Slice the squash in half so you have two even bottoms to work with and peel off the outside
  4. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat
  5. Cut each half into slices and then steam in a microwave safe bowl with about 1-2″ of water for 4 minutes
  6. Grill approximately 5-6 minutes each side, depending on the thickness of your slices, brushing with honey & balsamic glaze
  7. Enjoy!

 

I also think this would be good with some brown sugar or cinnamon and a little olive oil! Get creative – try something new!

Tonight I served it with grilled chicken and steamed broccoli! YUM!!!!
