Fuel your body. Feel better.

One of the reasons I joined Beachbody as a coach was I wanted other people to feel the way I felt. I wanted people to realize you didn’t have to feel tired all the time.

When people join my Accountability groups they realize they have committed to something awesome. They have heard the success stories, mostly from friends or on my page. They know they are joining an amazing team of supportive people all there for the same reason. To better themselves.

However, what I think surprises people the most is the Shakeology. In a world filled with “the next best shake” (I’ve tried dozens of them) this really is magic in a tub for many people. It’s not just a “protein powder”, or a “meal replacement”, this is a superfood healthy lifestyle drink and it’s benefits are far and wide. “Has anyone noticed your skin is clearer and glowing?” is a common question that is asked in our groups when they start.

ENERGY. Shakeology contains a range of B vitamins and trace minerals, like zinc and magnesium, from whole food sources that regulate metabolism and increase energy. Shakeology also contains maca root, an adaptogen herb known to promote endurance and stamina.

ANITOXIDANTS. Shakeology contains some of the most potent antioxidants: flavonoids and phytonutrients such as spinach, blue green algae, carrot powder, strawberry powder, and vitamins E and C, pomegranate, acai berry, camu-camu, goji, and helps protect your body from normal inflammatory response.

DIGESTION. Prebiotic and probiotic blend contains fiber and different enzymes like amylase, papain, cellulose, and lactase, which all support digestion.

MOOD. One scoop of Shakeology provides 100% of the daily recommended intake of vitamin B12. B12 is often linked with good mood maintenance; Shakeology also contains cacao, which is very high in phenylethylamine (PEA). PEA acts as a neuromodulator to enhance one’s mood.

COMPLETE NUTRTION. This one little shake tastes like a milkshake, but feeds my body on a cellular level. All of your fruits and veggies, plus the synergy of 70+ superfood ingredients working together is WHY I drink this LIQUID GOLD every single day.

Yup, IT IS EXPENSIVE. Worth every penny too. You can’t expect to feel like a million bucks eating from the dollar menu! Cheap now, usually means EXPENSIVE later in my opinion. My family and I are worth the investment. OUR HEALTH matters, and when we are unhealthy our QUALITY OF LIFE SUFFERS. I want us to feel our best, and that starts with proper nutrition.

Today I had my Chocolate Vegan Shakeology with the Chocolate RECOVER formula…FUHREAKING AMAZING way to fuel my body for the day! 🙌🏻♥️

How to beat the flu

How I slayed Influenza A in 3ish days!

 

If you’re like me and scroll to the bottom for cliff notes here ya go 😉

Drink hot lemon water everyday and if you’re brave add a spoonfull of apple cider vinegar.

Blend up a handful of kale, 1 tsp raw honey, 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar, 1 raw garlic clove, a little water then chug it.

Make a homemade batch of chicken soup, here’s my favorite:

Chicken Soup

This warming Chicken Soup is great for fighting the flu!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 medium carrots sliced
  • 2 medium celery stalks sliced
  • 3-6 whole garlic cloves
  • 1 cup kale chopped
  • 6 cups low-sodium organic chicken broth
  •  lbs. cooked shredded chicken approx. 4½ cups 
  • ¾ tsp. sea salt or Himalayan salt
  • ¼ tsp. ground white pepper

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in large saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add onion, carrots, garlic and celery; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
  3. Add broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; gently boil for 5 minutes.
  4. Add chicken (I cook my chicken in an instant pot with 4 cups of water for 25 minutes on high pressure), kale, salt, and pepper; gently boil for 10 minutes.
  5. Evenly divide soup between six serving bowls. Top evenly with soup; serve immediately, store in the fridge to eat everyday you’re fighting the flu.

 

Keep Sambucol elderberry liquid or gummies to take 3 times per day while you’re under the weather and once daily during flu season for preventative measures. Take Oscillococcinum for pain relief as needed.

 

Lots and lots of water and rest when you need it! But don’t be a couch potato or stagnant in bed! Get in the sun, walk around the block and unless you have a fever, do you workout!

No I’m NOT starving myself. I eat 3 meals a day, 1 snack and a few extra fruits & veggies if I’m hungry. Ive has a few small cheats still using detox friendly ingredients. ✌🏼 This is pure freaking craziness to me!

Next round starts 11/27!? You’ll legit be done before Christmas.🎄What are you waiting for!? Like for real girl. I see 👀 you over there. Watching me, telling yourself it’s easy for me and not for you. Whelp, that’s a lie. Stop that shiz and fill out THIS LINK to give me a snapshot of your goals & struggles. I’ll hook you up. 4 spots left.

Reasons I did this: To reset my mind + palette and begin craving healthy foods again! To help my body heal from stress. To focus on sleep & mental clarity. To stop overusing caffeine and artificial sweeteners. To love vegetables again. To be in tune with my body. To better my digestion, skin, and sleep. To draw a line in the sand and make the change I knew I so desperately needed. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

Don’t stay stuck. I am more than happy to help you make a change so you can become healthier from the inside out.

My plan moving forward is laid out for me and I’m so excited! New workout program starts today and I’m thrilled! Meal plan is so simple and flexible. 0 guesswork. Ready to continue my results! My next group is firing up MONDAY so you still have time to jump in!! We NEED each other through the holidays!! I know I want to keep feeling my best – there is no way I’m going back to week 0. 🙅🏼❤️

Key word: PROMISE. And hey ✋🏼.. I’m never here to convince. I just want YOUR confidence to shine bright too my babe. ☀️❤️👭💪🏼

A million Thank Yous for all the love and patience while I detoxed emotionally, socially, and physically from all my babes that were following along and cheering me on!!!

#timetolevelup #doitwithus #shinebrighttribe #theskinnyonmydetox

Week 0: I was beyond frustrated with myself & knew something was off, and my Sunday Fundays were running into Thirsty Thursday’s … just knew I needed a CHANGE. Desperate to feel better. Knew that I HAVE all the tools I need right in front of me, and it was time I implement them so I grabbed some BFFs and dove in!

Week 3: FULL BLOWN PLANT BASED MEALS – NEVER grabbed anything with white sugar or artificial, NEVER drank caffeine, OR even a single cocktail. Did however almost barf after a chicken nugget incident. I’m laying it all out day by day in the blog!! Amazed at my resolve during what I thought would be a really difficult time {Nov 1 – Nov 21} aka my BIRTHDAY 🎁 MONTH but dropped 12.6 lbs! Feeling like a freaking brand new human with a CLEAN SLATE! 🙌🏼 Becoming comfortable in my skin again and my mood & energy are worlds better! 🌎💕

GRAB YOUR SPOT

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 17

Wow!? Who am I!? It’s been sooooo Hard for me to get up before starting this detox and here I am bouncing out of bed before my alarm. No blurry eyed creep to the kitchen to fire up my tea cup and I’m diving into paint projects before I wake the boys up from school!?!?! What in the heck!?!

I had no idea sleeping soundly would be such an amazing benefit to this 21 days and honestly might make even my worst food day worth it!! As a mom we never expect to get a good nights sleep because even if the kids don’t wake us up we still listen for every noise, whisper, thud, and breath. But I am KNOCKED OUT at night and ready to wake up when or before my alarm goes off. There is so much beauty in waking up refreshed I had no clue what I was missing!!!

Here’s the Skinny on Day 17:

Wake up w/20 oz of distilled water (Mineralize added) and continue drinking this ALL day just not until 30 mins after a meal for digestion purposes!

Take Supplements (Optimize & Revitalize)

Wait 30 Minutes

Breakfast – 3 cups of fresh fruit (I blended a cup of mango into my Shako)

Wait at least 2 hours. (I waited 3)

Take Supplements again

Wait 30 min

Lunch – called for Morracan Carrot Salad with 3 cups of greens (not pictured – still steaming) and it just wasn’t in me to make it so I roasted some asparagus and steamed the carrots it called for and called it good. I’m usually great at meal prep but this final leg of the cleanse I’m not super excited about it.

Wait at least 2 hours (I waited 3)

Take your power greens

Wait 30 minutes

Optional Snack – I used my oil allowance from lunch to mix up this beauty. 1 Tbsp of coconut oil and 1 Tbsp of Shako vegan chocolate then 5 mins in the freezer and this was worth it!!!

Wait 2 hours

Take Supplements (Optimize, Revitalize & Soothe)

Wait 30 min

Dinner – again. Food fail because I just wasn’t into what was called for so I made a 1/2 sweet potato with mixed veggies (zucchini, broccoli, red pepper, and asparagus)

I think what’s awesome about this plan is how easily you just revert to fruits or veggies with no desire to cheat. I could have easily eaten the steak the kids were eating but other than it smelling good I had no desire to eat it.

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – What is it?

If you’ve tried everything else like me or maybe you just want to feel more energy we should be talking about this! I have a wave of babes starting Monday right after Thanksgiving! We are doing this during the hardest time of the year and won’t even be sweating any New Years resolutions!!

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 16

Wanna get a kick in your step without the superpowers of caffeine? I’m learning a lot during this 21 days and had NO IDEA I could live without something as sacred as coffee but here I am day 16 no caffeine!! 🤯 I add 1 Tbsp. in 4 ounces of distilled water with a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of pink Himalayan salt first thing in the morning. SOOO great for energy! + it’s said that it can help with weight loss (increases metabolism) and tons of other shit like balancing your bodies PH. You can drink it 3x a day before meals to benefit energy all day + good metabolism. 🥂 BE A FRIEND and share this great tip with a friend toooo or Pin to your fave healthy girl Pinterest board!

I was stoked to update my phone and see all the new fun to be had with new emojis!!!

It’s my BIRTHDAY MONTH!! Where my scorpios at!!? Scorpio is exotic and magnetic, as deep as the sea, and, depending on our mood, as calm or as tempestuous.

♏️

Scorpio likes clear endings and beginnings, with no grey areas in between.

♏️

Scorpio tends to be possessive of their loved ones and also find it extremely difficult to trust people and are therefore very secretive.

♏️

We are lovers AND fighters depending on which side of ours you’re on. We will will take secrets to grave unless we are driven to do otherwise, or unless we think you’ve wronged us.

♏️

We are intuitive AF. We know something’s going to happen before it does and can easily read people .

♏️

We tend to be self-destructive because we are fearless and stubborn even when life gets a little tricky. We’ll take one to the chin and keep going.

♏️

Self-confident, resourceful, and strong. Where my scorpios at? 🎂🍾🎉Happy Birthday, boo ❤

The Skinny on the Ultimate Reset – Day 15

I’ve been feeling really down the past couple days! Nothing awful. Just like “meh” so a day of hair and brows (and let’s be honest… mustache manicuring hehehehhe!!) and I feel good as new!!! Turning 43 has me feeling all sorts of ways and through this cleanse as I’m emotionally unloading a ton of blocks I feel lighter and less stressed than I have in YEARS!

It doesn’t hurt that the food was GOOOOD TODAY!!

Take Supplements (Optimize & Revitalize)

Wait 30 Minutes

Breakfast

3 cups of fruit – I was on the go so I improvised and added about a cup of frozen mango to 1/2 scoop tropical strawberry Shako and blended it with 10 oz of distilled water. It is so freaking delish I could drink it alllll day!

Wait at least 2 hours.

Take Supplements again

Wait 30 min (I still wasn’t home so it was about an hour)

Lunch

Asian Cabbage Salad that I inhaled so fast I can’t believe I didn’t get a picture! I”m soooo bummed you can’t see it but here’s the recipe:

Makes 1 serving

3 Tbsp. rice vinegar

2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice

2 Tbsp. sesame oil

1 1/2 tsp. finely chopped ginger ( I hate ginger and didn’t add it)

1/2 head Napa cabbage, shredded (4 cups)

1/2 medium carrot, shredded

1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced

2 green onions, thinly sliced

2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro

Himalayan salt to taste

Combine vinegar, lime juice, oil, ginger, and Bragg Liquid Aminos in a small bowl; mix well. Combine cabbage, carrot, red & green onions, cilantro, and salt (if desired) in a large bowl; mix well. Drizzle with dressing; toss gently. Let salad marinate, covered, in refrigerator for 15 mins before serving.

Wait at least 2 hours (I waited 3)

Take your power greens

Wait 30 minutes

Optional Snack – I nibbled on half a red bell pepper and hummus

Wait 2 hours

Take Supplements (Optimize, Revitalize & Soothe)

Wait 30 min

Dinner Mash up! I’ve been mixing my dinners together in a bowl still. It tastes way better to me! It called for a baked sweet potato & garlic veggies. Here’s the recipe:

Baked Sweet Potato – 1 serving

1 medium sweet potato or yam

1 tsp. olive oil

1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Scrub potato; pierce several times with a fork and place on center rack. (My note – place a foiled lined cookie sheet under on the next rack to catch drippings) Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until fork tender. Remove from the over and cut a 1 1/2 inch cross in the center of the potato. Season with oil, salt, and a seasoning blend if desired.

Garlic Veggies – 1 serving (I doubled this so I could eat it tomorrow)

2 tsp. olive oil

1 Tbsp. water

2 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 1/2 tsp. Bragg Liquid Aminos, to taste

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1 medium carrot, cut into thin diagonal slices

1/2 medium head broccoli, cut into bite sized florets

1/2 medium zuchinni, cut lengthwise then sliced

1/4 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch strips
