Happy Halloween!  Halloween is upon us!  I hope you read my tips to stay healthy this Halloween!!  But, I know too well the temptation to enjoy a few treats on Halloween..and then a few more the next day…and a few more the next…until, OMG, I can’t believe I ate all the candy!  Now what???

With Thanksgiving coming up, and then Christmas shortly after that, the temptations are endless.  I was reading somewhere that the average person gains 5-10lbs during this holiday season!!  ACK!  Don’t be one of those statistics, not this year…this year is going to be DIFFERENT!!

As a very busy mom with 3 active boys, I know that the STRUGGLE is REAL!!!  I know that you are being pulled in a million different directions and the last thing that you want to worry about is what you are eating and when you going to fit in your workout.  I also know at the exact same time you are wishing you could fit in those jeans, wear that dress for the corporate Christmas party, or just feel comfortable in your own clothes every day. For goodness sakes, I remember not wanting to wear anything but yoga pants because it didn’t squeeze my tummy like my jeans did!  I get it!!! Like I said, the STRUGGLE is REAL!  You aren’t getting enough sleep, the kids are misbehaving and they won’t eat anything that resembles a vegetable.  You also don’t want to invest in a fitness program or even Shakeology because you are afraid you won’t like it, you won’t actually start or finish it and you don’t want to WASTE money that can be used for the family.  I get it, I know how you feel. I drug my FEET FOREVER about Shakeology!  I had honestly never done a meal replacement shake before so I didn’t know what to expect.  I finally decided, what the heck, I can give it 30 days and see what happens.

So what did happen?!  I committed to ChaLEAN Extreme, I learned as much as I could about clean eating, I drank Shakeology and I lost over 60 lbs in 6 months…and then over the next 3 months, I lost the next 30 lbs.  I have completely changed MY own life and the lifestyle habits of my family in the process.  My husband even lost 10 lbs by me changing the way I cooked our dinners.  Now my kids know the difference between good and bad choices.  I love that our kids see us as a healthy family and one that places a priority on exercise!  What started out as something I was doing for myself and my own self confidence has become a decision that is positively impacting my family and those around me!

So to watch this unfold in my life has been amazing but it has also inspired me to do the same for others! So no matter how old your kids are now or even if you have no kids, I want to inspire you to SET the STAGE for a healthy lifestyle for you and your family!  I want you to be the example for others.  So here is what I am going to do!  I am going to teach you how to make exercise a part of your lifestyle.  I am going to teach you how to plan out healthier meals, to prepare healthy snacks, to stay motivated through the next 30 days and beyond, and to find balance between sweets and treats and staying on track.  We have Halloween today, Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, and of course I want you to enjoy the holidays, but we can totally have the 80-20 rule. That means that 80% of the time you are on track and 20% you get to enjoy!  So together we look at your week and determine what is most important, what we stick to and then what we allow ourselves to ENJOY.

Remember this is a lifestyle, not a diet!  It’s important to have the best of both worlds.

Now that it sounds all awesome and fabulous…what is involved?

Requirements:

1.  You are required to have ME as your COACH through Team Beachbody.

2.  Then together, WE pick a fitness program through Team Beachbody that fits your needs. It does not matter what your ability level is, I have something for you! {21 day fix, T25, Chalean Extreme, P90X3, Turbofire, Insanity, Piyo, ect…}

3.  You are REQUIRED to replace 1 meal a day with Shakeology ONLY for the duration of the group. Once it is over you can decide if you have enough healthy recipes in your pocket to prepare meals without needing Shakeology or if you find its convenient and it takes care of 1 meal you can keep going!  5 years later, I still drink Shakeology daily.

4.  Then, it is required that you participate in the online private Facebook group daily.  Each day I will share a tip, motivation, and a “theme of the day” post.  Each week, I will share a new meal plan.  You check in, rate your day and get your inspiration for the next 24 hours.  You can log in whenever you want just as long as  I know you are there it’s all good!

I am your personal support system so that you actually start, finish, and truly succeed at changing your lifestyle.  I will share with you the recipes that my family loves along with the quick easy recipes that don’t take a lot of prep!

We will start our plan and prep week on November 3rd.  That means we will set our goals, I will teach you how to clear out the old and bring in the new, give you recipes, a meal plan outline and suggestions, and together we will start working out the following MONDAY!
