21 Day Fix Extreme

Beachbody's newest EXTREME program will be released on MONDAY, February 2 and is expected to sell out FAST. I am so excited for this program because it is designed to get you in the best shape of your life in just 21 days. That is INCREDIBLE. Check out these details and amazing results!

What is 21 Day Fix EXTREME?

The original 21 Day Fix was designed to make losing weight simple and eliminate the need to ever diet again. That's why it became America's #1 fitness and nutrition program. Now, get seriously shredded in the shortest time possible with 21 Day Fix EXTREME, created by Autumn Calabrese. This breakthrough 21-day fitness and nutrition program combines simple portion control, clean eating, and extreme 30-minute workouts to deliver a body that is hard, lean, and defined.

Who should buy the program?

21 Day Fix EXTREME is ideal for those with a dramatic short-term weight loss deadline--such as an upcoming vacation, photo shoot, or other big event. It's an excellent next step for 21 Day Fix graduates ready for a new challenge or graduates of other extreme programs like P90X, Insanity, and FOCUS T25. Fix EXTREME is also great for those who don't have much weight to lose, but want to get shredded and see abs; those with a "no BS" attitude toward workouts and nutrition; or anyone who doesn't want to count calories, weigh their food, or follow complicated recipes.

What is the difference between 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix EXTREME?

21 Day Fix was Beachbody's first program that placed equal emphasis on fitness and nutrition, to deliver up to 15 pounds of weight loss in just 21 days. 21 Day Fix EXTREME takes both the fitness and nutrition to the next level to help you get seriously shredded in just 21 days. Both programs are based on simple fitness (no complicated choreography), and simple nutrition based on portion control.

Do you have a VISION?

Do you have a VISION for your LIFE? I know just a couple short years ago, I THOUGHT I did, but I really had no real direction or any idea EXACTLY where I wanted to be. I was floating through life because that was EASY and there was no pressure. There was no risk of failure, but also no great rewards! Now, I have a CLEAR goal and vision of where my life is going! I may not hit goals on the exact date I have set, but I will do everything in my power to make them happen! You only hit a target at which you aim, so I'm making it VERY clear where I'm headed. 

I've been reading an amazing book- Entreleadership by Dave Ramsey, which I highly recommend! I'm only about 30 pages in and am already feeling more inspired and making big plans for the year and really setting sight on my vision and how to share that with others and encourage them to find their vision too! I am a big believer in vision boards, and have yet to do one this year so that is going on my to do list this week! I will be sure and share when it's done so hopefully even more will be inspired.

set your vision, set goals, clear direction

Take some time to sit down and REALLY think about what you want out of life and how you WILL make it happen! Envision yourself where you plan to be! If you set no real vision and goal, you will float through life and your dreams will too. Don't look back and wonder WHY you didn't go for it! YOU are deserving and worth it! Don't settle!

Do you have a vision board? I would love to see it and hear how you determine what is most important to you!

Easier Peanut Butter Stirring

One of the switches we made to help our clean eating journey was that from your typical processed peanut butter with sugar an junk in it to organic peanut butter made from just peanuts and salt. We've tried lots of brands and my absolute favorite is Field Day Organic. It is the yummiest and smoothest and most like those unhealthy versions most of us were raised on.

So, on to the reason you are reading this! ;) The downfall of the pure made-from-peanuts-only peanut butter is the dreaded stirring! Even my strong husband hates doing it! We've tried everything, even dipping it out into a bowl and using a hand mixer! That was a huge mess to say the least! Enter my greatest discovery! Storing the peanut butter in the pantry UPSIDE DOWN until you are ready to use disperses the oil and makes stirring MUCH easier! You still have to stir, but the oil doesn't spill down the side of the jar, make a huge mess and make your biceps sore the next day! Now you can enjoy your peanut butter without spending a ton of time prepping it!

Healthy Ranch Chicken

Need and EASY, healthy, and delicious recipe for a week night even the kids will eat? Seriously- 2 ingredients! It just doesn't get any easier and it has so much flavor and is super juicy.

Greek yogurt (I prefer Stonyfield Organic)
Ranch Mix* (I use simply Organic since it doesn't have all the added junk)
2-3 Chicken breast depending on size

*I normally do not encourage using packaged mixes, but have yet to find a yummy Ranch mix I can make myself- I would love recommendations if anyone has a recipe you love!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Line pyrex dish with tinfoil.
Coat tinfoil with Greek yogurt.
Lay chicken in dish.
Coat tops of chicken with Greek yogurt.
Pour 1/2 ranch packet over chicken.
Bake covered at 375 for 35 minutes.
Uncover and bake another 15 or until chicken is done.

Healthy ranch chicken directions

I love any type of roasted veggies as a side with this chicken. My go to is either green beans or Brussels sprouts. Enjoy!

Removing that poopy onesie

As most of you know, I am a proud mom to a beautiful 2 1/2 month old baby girl. Most of life is beautiful. Then there are those moments that are less than glamorous! We've been dealing with several blowouts lately! No fun, but luckily we learned a little trick and I have to share it with all of YOU!

Secret of baby onesie, baby onesie, what every mom should know, blowout cleanup

Did you know these typical onesies are actually designed so they can be pulled DOWN over the legs instead of UP over her head each time? I had NO idea until recently. I just thought they were designed to look cute! Thank goodness I realized it before the last few clean-ups we've had!

So that's not the best pic ever of my littlest, but shows you that it really does work. Just pull her arms out and pull it down over her shoulders- at least the mess doesn't get on her hair and face! We just did this last night! And isn't her onesie adorable?

Hope this was helpful! Feel free to share any tips you may have on making life easier with an infant! XOXO

Dream BIG

DREAMS... You just never know when they will come TRUE!

I started as a Beachbody coach in March of 2013 with little expectation, really just doing it for a discount on products that I 100% BELIEVED in! I quickly learned the potential with this amazing opportunity and decided to go ALL IN! I am a dentist by trade, and at the time was practicing dentistry at a non-profit clinic. While very rewarding work, I was still faced with the reality of having a BOSS! Someone still told me what to do, where to be and dictated my time. That is not what I wanted for my life. I had bigger goals and aspirations. Then, I had a baby boy so I yearned to be home more and started to dream BIG! 

I started setting GOALS. As a dentist, people would think I set big goals and really had a path set to achieve that. Honestly, I floated through life, with no real direction other than an end goal when I was on a track with few detours.  Instead of watching HOURS of TV each day, I began READING and LEARNING. What an impact that made on my outlook on life! I became more POSITIVE and could actually envision my life getting BETTER and becoming the life I have always dreamed of!

Since that time, I have become a FULL TIME Beachbody coach from HOME and added a beautiful baby girl to our family. I AM the boss! I am living my life by design and have an amazing team taking the journey with me! I am so thankful for all this opportunity has given me and it is just the BEGINNING! Big things happening in 2015!

30 Days of Insanity MAX:30

So today was my 30th day of Insanity MAX:30! I am loving this program so far! It will definitely test you and push you to your limits in a good way! I have done the workouts religiously throughout the holiday season but did NOT eat very clean so I could have done a lot better. That being said, I'm starting back at day 1! I'm gonna push myself and clean up my diet! Meal plans will be coming your way regularly!

2 1/2 months postpartum, commit

I lost 4 3/4" and 2 lbs- not bad for eating whatever I wanted! At 2 1/2 months postpartum, I still have a long way to go, but I am proud of myself for committing to this program! I will not quit! 2015 is gonna be AMAZING!
