21-Day Fix Meal Plan: December 14, 2015

Week 6 of my Body Beast/21-Day Fix Extreme hybrid started this week.  Body Beast is unlike anything I've done so far and if this doesn't prepare me for Hammer and Chisel I don't know what will!  My team and I have already decided we will be running an EXCLUSIVE TEST group for Hammer and Chisel starting January 4th (more info at the bottom of this post!) AND a couples challenge group starting January 11th.  You can find 2 of the Hammer and Chisel workouts on Beachbody On Demand right now and if you don't already have a coach, but want to try BOD FREE for 30 days, fill out the form at the bottom OR send me a friend request and message on Facebook.

Here is the meal plan I am following this week.  Each color represents a different color coded portion control container (keep scrolling for more info on my 21-Day Fix challenge groups).

I am following the 1800-2099 calorie bracket and eating on the regular 21-Day Fix meal plan, not the Extreme.  I am on the maintenance plan and am not eating at a deficit.  You will need to figure out the bracket that is right for you.  And if you are not already actively working with a Beachbody coach and you need help getting started, simply create a FREE Beachbody account with me as your coach HERE

Here are a couple of the recipes from this week: 

Honey Mustard Dressing

1/2 cup reduced fat Greek yogurt
3 TBSP Dijon Mustard
3 TBSP honey
3 TBSP rice vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
sea salt to taste

Combine all of the ingredients except for the olive oil, whisk well to combine.  Slowly add oil until well blended.

Strong Moms Online Accountability Group Starts January 4th, 2016!

Listen up Mommas!!  My next STRONG MOMS online support group starts 1/4/16.  It's time we put our health and happiness first.  As Mothers we care for everyone first and tend to put ourselves on the back burner. Some of us hate our bodies. Some have lost their identity and confidence. Some have no energy. IT'S TIME WE CHANGE THAT! I am here to empower you to make a change. When mom is happy, everyone is happy, right?!


I am looking for MOMS who want to make a change and an investment in their health. Woman who want their body back, want more energy, confidence and want to smile when they look in the mirror. I want you to feel comfortable in your own skin!


My Strong Moms accountability group holds a special place in my heart because it's the first group I ever joined after I became a Beachbody coach.  It is the group where I found motivation, support and encouragement from moms that were going through the exact same things I was.  Trying to find time for ourselves while still running our households, working, cooking dinner, running kids everywhere, etc...We are all in it TOGETHER and it's amazing!!  



I am going to show you how to fuel your body RIGHT without starving yourself. BALANCE, balance, balance! I will guide you through a program that is only 30 minutes of exercise a day - yes, 30 minutes!! INVEST IN YOURSELF - for you and your family.  It's time to COMMIT.  Are you ready to make this change?

To get started, fill out this form and I will be in touch in 2-3 days!  Cannot wait to hear from you!

{21-Day Fix Approved} Vanilla Cake with Chocolate Frosting

Oh my word.  Talk about good - my family had no idea it was a healthier cake made with all clean eating ingredients!  You'll flip over this vanilla cake with chocolate frosting!! 


If you follow the 21-Day fix meal plan, you'll be happy to know that this is 21-Day Fix APPROVED. In fact, it is from Autumn's new cookbook called Fixate!  I adapted it slightly, replacing the almond an coconut flour with white whole wheat flour.  


I honestly don't do much baking anymore so when this cookbook was released, with DESSERTS, I immediately had to try most of them.  And I have!  I will be sharing more of the recipes as I make them again.  In the meantime, if you'd like to purchase the cookbook itself, click HERE.  Um, did someone say Fix approved Skinny Cocktails???

Serves 12 

{21-Day Fix Approved} Vanilla Cake with Chocolate Frosting

1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 cup unsalted organic butter, room temperature, divided
1 cup of honey (or maple syrup)
4 large eggs
1/4 cup + 3 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a 9-inch round cake pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.  Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and mix well.  Set aside.

In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together 1/2 cup butter and 3/4 cup honey for 1 minute.  Add eggs 1 at a time, beat until blended.  Add flour mixture to butter mixture and beat until creamy.

Pour batter into prepared pan.  Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Cool on a baking rack.

Beat the remaining 1/4 cup butter in a medium bowl for 1 to 2 minutes or until creamy.  Add remaining 3 tablespoons of almond milk to butter and beat until blended.  Add cocoa powder, beat until blended, scraping down the sides of the bowl.

Slowly add the remaining 1/4 cup honey while beating on medium speed.  Once cake is cooled, evenly spread with frosting and cut into 12 slices.

3-Day Refresh - My Own Results and Why It's Amazing!

Thanksgiving week was...how shall I put this...maybe a little TOO fun.  My in-laws were visiting as they do every Thanksgiving and while I knew that I was going to indulge here and there and then on Thanksgiving day, what I didn't expect was that I was going to completely derail from my fitness goals.

Because here's the thing...one night with a few drinks and pizza turned into a few more nights of drinks and take-out, etc., etc.  Sweets once again became addicting, everything started to add up, and all the alcohol definitely slowed my metabolism.

The crazy thing is...I didn't miss one workout ALL week.  But they weren't effective.  As the saying goes, "you can't out exercise a bad diet."  So true!!  Plus, when I did "try" to exercise, I wasn't giving it my all because I was just sluggish.

I'm totally owning ALL of it.  And I knew that I was going to go all in with the 21-Day Fix meal plan starting that Monday, but man, I just needed to break this cycle fast.  So, I decided to do the one thing I've been too nervous to try first - the 3-Day Refresh.  Because that is exactly what it's for - to lose weight fast, but safe, and to break some bad habits (which were clearly starting to form again...ugh).

And here are my results!  Down 3 full inches on my waist.  I did not weigh myself - although I know I lost weight.  It wasn't the reason behind doing this so I didn't need to know! 


Day 1 was rough...I was tired and hangry (ha!) by the end of the day.  Day 2 was great!  I slept like a rock both nights actually, but I definitely had the most energy on Day 2.  I actually poured myself a cup of black coffee with stevia - which is refrained upon (allowed, but they suggest you drink green tea) - and didn't even DRINK it!! All my energy was completely natural.  I felt full and did great.  Day 3 was good, I definitely started to feel a little tired again by the end of the day.  I crashed hard that night and woke up feeling amazing the next morning!

I wanted to get rid of that horrible bloat and I'm thrilled with my results!  The important thing is that I've cleansed/reset my body to where it needs to be and I got rid of the toxins and "ick". 


It was tough, but I didn't feel hungry ALL the time.  The hardest parts for me were the morning and the few hours after dinner.  In the morning, you are only allowed Shakeology, green tea and the Fiber Sweep drink.  I could not WAIT until lunch when I could eat FOOD!  The few hours after dinner were hard and that was when I started to get irritable and feel like I could eat everything in the kitchen!  The best thing to do is to chug water and go to bed!

And water...SO so important on the Refresh.  Not only does it help keep the hunger away but it really gets that fiber working properly. 

I know I didn't have a ton of weight to lose, but I had to get rid of that awful bloat.  I'm back to practically where I was pre-Thanksgiving week.  I'm thrilled with my 3 inches lost - and I have other coaches on my team that did this the same time as me and one lost 5 pounds, the other 8!!

The next few weeks are about fueling my body right with the 21-Day Fix portion control containers and prepping for our January Hammer and Chisel challenge group!!  I'm currently doing a hybrid of Body Beast and the 21-Day Fix Extreme.


So what is the 3-Day Refresh? 

The 3-Day Refresh is a dramatic change that will help cleanse your body and improve the way you feel - without starving yourself.

You get specially formulated shakes for 3-Day results.  Easy-to-prepare clean meals DESIGNED to help you lose a few pounds and not feel deprived.

This is how you break the cycle of bad eating and get a jump start on HEALTHY weight loss.  If you've ever done a juice fast or an all-liquid cleanse that is high in sugars and low in protein, you may have found that you felt weak and sluggish.  And any weight loss came right back.  This is because liquid fasts can tax your organs and SLOW your metabolism.

The 3-Day Refresh is scientifically designed to do just the opposite.  It detoxifies and cleanses, while supporting your metabolism with nutritious whole food that will help keep your vital organs reenergized.  This is why you feel so GOOD on the Refresh but you lose weight at the same time!  Your body functions more efficiently and it helps burn fat.  At the end of the 3 days, you feel energized, lighter and refreshed!



When should YOU do the Refresh?

Kick Start: For some, the 3-Day Refresh is a way to kick-start a healthier lifestyle - to make a clean break from eating habits that are not supporting your health or weight loss goals (hello! This was me!). 

Monthly Tune-Up: For others, the Refresh serves as a regular monthly "tune-up" they can use to knock off a few pounds each month. 

It's also perfect for an event or Holiday like New Years Eve or your birthday where you have that one special outfit you need to make sure you'll fit in.  Whatever your reason, you absolutely won't regret how amazing you look and feel once completing it! 


Need more info?  Leave a comment below OR message me on Facebook (probably the easiest way to get in touch).  Send me a friend request once you've message me so I know to check my "other" folder in case.


You can also fill out my challenge group form - now that I know how awesome the Refresh is, I will be opening up a 3-Day Refresh group, ongoing for anyone that wants to do this!  A group where you will get support from me and others and where you can ask questions along the way.

I am beyond excited that Beachbody is releasing the NEWEST fitness program called The Master's Hammer and Chisel in ONE week  - December 1st!!  I've been doing the two sneak peeks on Beachbody On Demand and I absolutely fell in love with it.  I'm currently doing a hybrid of Body Beast and the 21-Day Fix Extreme in order to prep myself for it - I seriously CANNOT wait!

Test group coach - wow right???

I fell in love with strength training doing Insanity Max:30 in the beginning of the year and then P90X3 for really the last 9 months off and on.  So far with the hybrid, I LOVE Body Beast - Sagi Kalev's program has really challenged me and improved my strength, flexibility, tone and endurance. And of course I love the 21-Day Fix food plan (follow me on Pinterest where I post my 21-Day Fix meal plans weekly!).  Autumn's portion controlled container system seriously has been a game changer for me and for my customers in their success with mastering clean eating and nutrition!!



I will definitely be getting my copy of this program the minute it launches on December 1st and not a second later.  It's going to be EPIC!!  My husband I have both committed to completing this program and we will be running an exclusive TEST group for people just like you who want support in getting results!!  Date to be determined, but it will be after the New Year!

Roasted Acorn Squash

A few weeks ago we were at our local farmers' market when I saw what I thought were gourds and picked them up because I thought they would make a great fall decoration.  As I was paying, I was informed that what I picked up was an acorn squash and that I needed to EAT it!  So...after a bit of research, I decided to try roasting it.  Even my husband, who was totally unsure, could not stop raving about this roasted acorn squash! 


They really could not be easier to prepare!  Cut in half (ok, yes that is the hard part!! Good knife and a steady hand!), remove the seeds and it's 4 ingredients - butter, coconut sugar, cinnamon and sea salt.  Be prepared because it does take a little over an hour for these to roast. I honestly had no idea they would take that long and they weren't exactly ready when the rest of our dinner was...


Such a great fall side dish!  I served ours with Crock Pot rotisserie chicken.  With the leftovers the next day, I scraped out the squash, then mixed diced chicken together and it was amazing.  Clean eating is fun and does not have to be boring...


Acorn squash is a winter squash and when choosing one, it should feel firm on the outside with no blemishes.  Don't they look pretty even after being roasted?  This dish would be a beautiful side for the Holidays.  And they are a great source of vitamins - A (beta carotene from the orange flesh) and C, also iron and riboflavin.  Enjoy!!


Serves 4
Roasted Acorn Squash

2 small acorn squash, cut in half and seeds removed
4 teaspoons organic butter
4 teaspoons coconut sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
sea salt

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Assemble acorn squash on a baking sheet. Place 1 teaspoon of butter and coconut sugar in each half.  Add 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon in each and season with salt.  Bake until golden and tender, about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes, basting flesh of squash several times. Serve warm.

Coconut Chocolate Chip Granola

Granola is so incredibly easy and good for you...yet I hardly ever think to make it!  I've tried a few versions, and I have to say this coconut chocolate chip granola is fantastic and such a wonderful healthy snack. 


The oats promote heart health and are a great source of fiber, as are flax seeds!  Flax seeds and the nuts also contain Omega-3's which are good, healthy fats and are also excellent for your heart and help AID in weight loss. 


And yes, of course I added dark chocolate bits...yum!!  This granola is amazing mixed with Greek yogurt, which I often mix with dark chocolate chips so I thought, why not add them all together?  It's completely optional though...in fact I actually did 1/2 the batch without because my husband enjoys eating this granola with milk, like cereal.  


I hope you all enjoy as much as my family did.  I caught my 18 month carrying the storage container around quite a few times shoveling handfuls of it in her mouth.  Thinking I may make a double batch next time!


Makes about 3 cups

Coconut Chocolate Chip Granola

1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/4 cup flax seed
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  In a microwave safe bowl, combine the coconut oil, honey and maple syrup and microwave for 15-30 seconds to slightly melt everything.  In a large bowl, combine the oats, coconut, chopped nuts, flax seed and raisins.  Pour the coconut oil mixture over top and stir until everything is coated.

Pour the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown (it will be soft when it first comes out of the oven and harden as it cools).  Add the chocolate chips when the granola has cooled.  Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week or freeze for up to 2 months.

21-Day Fix Meal Plan: October 26th, 2015

Week 6 of my Piyo/P90X3/Hammer and Chisel hybrid starts this week.  I've been incorporating the 2 sneak peeks of Hammer and Chisel into my workout rotation for the past couple of weeks and it is AMAZING.  I got to try out Cardio at our Beachbody Super Saturday event - wow!  18 minutes but I was SO sore the next day!  If you don't already have a coach, but want to try Beachbody On Demand FREE for 30 days, fill out the form at the bottom OR send me a friend request and a message on Facebook.  

Here is the meal plan I am following this week.  Each color represents a different color coded portion control container (want more info?  Keep scrolling...the 21-Day Fix is my most popular program and I have challenge groups starting EVERY Monday).

I am following the 1800-2099 calorie bracket.  I am on the maintenance plan and am not eating at a deficit.  You will need to figure out the bracket that is right for you.  And if you are not already actively working with a Beachbody coach and you need help getting started, simply create a FREE Beachbody account with me as your coach HERE

Here are a couple of the recipes from this week: 

Honey Mustard Dressing

1/2 cup reduced fat Greek yogurt
3 TBSP Dijon Mustard
3 TBSP honey
3 TBSP rice vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
sea salt to taste

Combine all of the ingredients except for the olive oil, whisk well to combine.  Slowly add oil until well blended.
