Image result for american flag Summer Wellness Workshops!

Starting this month I will be teaching our team all they need to know about the foundational function and healing related to:

  • Digestive health & wellness
  • Hormonal Balance
  • Stress Management

I would say….100% of the population would benefit from learning about these topics! We live in a crazy time in the world where pretty much everyone struggles in these areas if they’re not already intentionally addressing them. Guess what?!?!?! They are FREE to be a part of if you join our team with a challenge pack! That means all you need to do is invest in the tools you need to feel better and get results and you get the coaching and training for FREE! This is unheard of! These kinds of workshops usually cost hundreds to participate in and that’s just for the information. It took me YEARS to learn all I have in these areas. Now I want to be the solution I was praying for years ago and never found.

Mother’s Day Special

30697641_10100194010453934_8653211249955307520_nMother’s Day is literally DAYS AWAY! I can’t believe it!!

Since I became a mama 2 years ago, and even more so since I become I mother of 2, 4-months ago, I have become very passionate about helping other moms invest in themselves. Being a mother is the most rewarding, amazing, challenging, thankless, selfless, important job on the planet. We’re literaly training and raising the next generation of humanity! In the hustle and bustle of this mom life, usually we forget the fact that if we’re sucked dry, completely drained, overwhelmingly exhausted, lack confidence, down on ourselves, unhealthy, and unfulfilled…well, our entire family suffers. It’s so easy to take the martyr role and tell ourselves, “This is what I signed up for, my kids need to always come first no matter what the cost”. We find some sort of twisted satisfaction of being run ragged all the time. Why do we do that? Sometimes we’re weirdos, us mothers…it could be the delusional state we’re in from not sleeping through the night…ever. 🙂

SO…that’s where I come in. Most of you know I’m a Registered Nurse. I paid over $100k (ya I know…) and went to school for 4 years to get that RN after my name. I did it because I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. I wanted to be there for them when life got rough, I wanted to help them heal, grieve, prevent illness, treat illness and injury, that was my driving force. Since I graduated in 2009, my perspective and knowledge in the area of health has drastically shifted. Now…I want to be the nurse for other nurses who are killing themselves due to stress and poor lifestyle choices. I want to be the nurse for moms, busy entreprenuers, and individuals who are walking down a dangerous path to significant health problems. There’s SO MUCH we can do to help you feel amazing and prevent SO MANY life-altering diseases! THAT is what I do now with my RN license, because I see the huge need and I have a huge gift to give in the information I’ve learned over the years.

Sorry…total tangent. SO! MOOOOOMS…This week, when you decide to make this investment in yourself and join our team, Health Patriot Nation, I will send you a $15 gift card to say THANK YOU for all you do to make this world a better place!

So, what are we talking about here, Jessica? Well, I’m so glad you asked! We just launched a revolutionary program called 2B Mindset! If you’ve ever struggled with weight loss, chronic dieting, emotional eating, stress eating/not eating, feeling guilty from eating a cheat meal, starving and binging, etc…you NEED THIS IN YOUR LIFE!

Read more about the program here…

2b-mindset-results-2-e1523903631423 2b-mindset-results-3-e1523903639137 2BResults1Nathaniel

If you are in this for the long run, meaning you are SO OVER dieting and the vicious cycle of losing 10 lbs only to gain 20 lbs back when you stop starving yourself, there has never been a better time.

We have a challenge pack “bundle” that give you all the tools you’ll need to not only hit those weight loss goals, but to regain your vibrant energy, improve your digestion, improve your skin clarity, become more resilient to stress, tone up your muscles, strengthen your immune system, and feel CONFIDENT IN YOUR OWN SKIN again! These aren’t “claims” that I’m making. They’re reports I get back from all the mama’s on our team just like you! We have new moms, mom’s of 5 kids, grandma moms, newborn moms, toddler moms, you name it! 🙂


HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO SAVE $170

Here are the deets on the challenge pack option (WHICH IS $20 OFF RIGHT NOW!!!)Screen Shot 2018-05-09 at 6.19.19 AM

My friend Craig Daigle was in the test group before the official launch and WOWZAS! What an inspiration!!!!

That’s right…It’s that time again! Time for a NEW TEAM CHALLENGE and this time, we’re doing it with a BRAND NEW PROGRAM- Shift Shop lead by Beachbody’s newest trainer, Chris Downing!

You guys!!!! I haven’t been THIS excited about a program since 22 Minute Hard Corps came out! That was the first program that started my Beachbody journey and I absolutely LOVED the results I got in only 22 minutes a day!

Chris’ new program is launching July 12th for all Beachbody On Demand members and it will also be available for purchase with a challenge pack on Team Beachbody’s site. Only exclusive test groups have been able to experience results from this epic program, and as you can tell from Craig’s transformation photos, their results have been AMAZING!

Shakeology Success Stories

Shakeology-for-Life-not-5-hours

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE transformation stories. There’s something so inspiring and empowering about seeing people become better human beings and find success! It makes me feel like, “If they can do it…I can do it!” Know what I mean?

So, today I wanted to share with you some amazing Shakeology transformation stories from people with various backgrounds, health issues, and struggles. Hopefully these stories will be as inspiring to you as they are to me! It’s because of stories like these that I am SO passionate about giving people the tools they need to change their life for the best!


natalieNatalie N.

“Shakeology is like premium fuel rather than watered down, cheap gasoline.”

“When my 8-year-old son started saying that we were going to have another baby because ‘mom’s belly is big,’ I knew I had to change my diet. Before Shakeology, I was a horrible eater. I never ate breakfast or lunch, instead I’d rely on coffee to get me through the day. Then around 4 I’d be starving and gorge on everything in sight. My husband was already drinking Shakeology and convinced me to give it a try so I could train my brain to crave healthy food. Once I started having a shake for breakfast I actually began to want lunch. Now I no longer crave junk food and my digestion has improved. Thanks, Shakeology, for making me feel fulfilled and alive!”

 

 

 


Yecenia C.

“Shakeology saved my life, and my Air Force career.”yessenia

“No 31 year old should be 90 lbs. overweight —so I turned to Beachbody for help. I drank Shakeology together with doing Hip Hop Abs and the fat got blasted, my core got stronger, and I no longer endure pain in my back and legs. Then I did the Ultimate Reset. And in 5 short months, I lost 76 lbs. and 14% body fat. Shakeology fueled my body with the nutrition it needed and I’ll be grateful to its creators for the rest of my life!”

 

 

 

 


dianaDiana D.

“Sometimes I can’t believe how much Shakeology has helped me overcome my challenges.”

“I gained over 60 lbs. with my first pregnancy and by the time I had my second—I was huge, because I never lost a bit of the weight from either pregnancy. I was always tired, always ashamed, and always miserable. So I said ‘enough’—started working out and drinking Shakeology. I truly believe Shakeology turned my world around. Within the first couple of weeks, my cravings disappeared, my energy returned, and now I don’t even drink coffee because Shakeology gives me all the energy I need for the day. Thanks to Shakeology and INSANITY, I’ve lost 95 lbs.!”

 

 


Lisa J.lisa

“I truly believe that Shakeology saved my life.”

“At nearly 200 lbs., I was not healthy. But food was always my ‘comfort,’ so the more depressed I got, the more I ate. When my dad died from cancer, I ate and ate until I couldn’t eat anymore. But I hit rock bottom when I developed a ‘softball’ in my neck. At first, they thought I’d had a heart attack. It was only an infection that required surgery. But the scare of a heart attack sent me to P90X, and then ASYLUM. In all, I lost 76 lbs. And I thank Shakeology—it supported my transformation, helped me lose weight, AND it changed my life. When I was in the hospital, my mom brought me Shakeology every day, and I truly believe it gave my body everything it needed to thrive.”

 

 

 


tylerTyler D.

“Shakeology was the game changer!”

“After losing more than 50 pounds doing a couple rounds of P90X, I found myself stuck on a weight plateau around 185 lbs. After drinking Shakeology for a week straight, however, I felt amazing, and before long, it propelled me to my current weight of 151 lbs. That’s a total weight loss of 90 lbs.! The combination of P90X and Shakeology turned out to be my recipe for success—there were some days when just the thought of that delicious chocolate shake was enough to get me through my workout. I still drink it every day and I plan to drink it forever, because I know it’s giving my body what it needs. The stuff is worth its weight in gold!”

 

 

 


Deirdra P.deidra

“I chose Shakeology to help get me on my feet with nutrition.”

“After I had my second child, I could not get the weight off. My biggest challenge was eating. Nutrition is 70–80% of weight loss—but I love ice cream—especially at night. Big issue! So when my cousin—who is a Team Beachbody Coach—got me started with Shakeology, I felt a great change in my energy and my digestive system. To me, it’s like eating ice cream . . . except I’m losing weight, gaining energy, and Shakeology has finally taken care of my cravings! I have my shake in the evening to replace the ice cream I would normally eat at night. It works, trust me. I am leaner, I’ve lost the weight I needed to lose, and I finally have control over my diet. That’s a big change and I thank Shakeology.”

 

 


leoLouie S.

“Dollar for dollar, you can’t beat the price and taste of Shakeology.”

 

“Even though I achieved incredible results from INSANITY, I felt like something was missing—so I ordered Shakeology alongside FOCUS T25. Turns out, adding Shakeology to my diet has made all the difference in the world. After just a month of drinking Shakeology I’m sleeping like a baby, my outlook is amazing, my digestion/regularity is excellent and consistent, my energy has improved, and I’m seeing even more amazing results from my workouts. Plus, I’ve lost so much weight that now I’m in the best shape of my life, no longer have a double chin, and I’m loving my 4-pack. Shakeology is helping me achieve my goals because now I’m living a healthy lifestyle and training hard.”

 

 


Jessica H.Jessica

“I was used to eating huge fast food combo meals and eating way too much for one person, but when my Coach introduced me to Shakeology, I loved the way it tasted. I felt full without feeling bloated and I had more energy than ever before. Eating became easier. I can resist the treats at work now, because I know my tasty treat each day is going to be a glass of Shakeology. I look forward to that first sip every morning the way other people look forward to their first coffee. So far, I’ve lost 63 pounds and 54 inches. I am invigorated and energized after every workout. I’m active and much more outgoing. I am ridiculously happy . . . people say it pours out of me. I’m so proud of myself. I DID IT!”

Shakeology Test Group: Registration OPEN

Page-Info-Graphic-Shakeology

I’ve been inspired and I’m going to follow that inspiration. My team is absolutely CRUSHING their goals! People are dropping pounds and inches left and right. Mommas are still pushing play even when they have babes who don’t sleep through the night. People are FEELING better than they have in YEARS! Some are off their medication for the first time in years…blood pressure is dropping, resting heart rate is dropping, chronic high blood sugar is being reversed. I’m telling you, LIVES ARE CHANGING!

Did you know in 2014, Beachbody paid for a third party clinical trial to be done on Shakeology? An actual science based, controlled study on the effects Shakeology alone had on participants. This study consisted of 50 participants who were selected after a rigorous selection process. The requirements? To drink Shakeology twice a day for 90 days. That’s it. No change in diet, no change in exercise.

The RESULTS? AMAZING!

shakeology-results

Shedding pounds.
Turns out, when participants drank Shakeology for breakfast they had a significant reduction in the desire to eat lunch. Over the course of 90 days participants lost an average of 9.3 pounds, with the highest weight loss coming in at 24 pounds. WOW—losing that much weight in 90 days is quite impressive!

Another interesting fact about the results is that participants continued to lose weight throughout the entire study. This shows that the continuous use of Shakeology resulted in the healthy type of weight loss—slow and steady. And those are the kind of results that are sustainable for the long haul.

Cholesterol plummeted.
In addition to lowering the digits on the scale, another very important number that shrunk was participants’ cholesterol. The average total cholesterol reduction was 7% with the maximum reduction being 50%.

Lowered blood sugar.
The study also monitored participants’ blood sugar levels. And rather than testing just a single day’s blood sugar (which can vary based on what you ate that day or even the day before) the study evaluated the average blood sugar for each day over the 3-month period (also known as HbA1c). Turns out, participants reduced their blood sugar (HbA1c) by an average of 5% while some reduced their numbers by up to 19%. And keeping your blood sugar levels steady is important in helping reduce the risk of diabetes.

For complete details on the study, refer to the Shakeology website here.

 

For those of you interested in the science/medical opinion of these superfoods, you should check out “100 Doctor’s Don’t Lie”, where 100 medical doctor’s were interviewed about their personal opinion of Shakeology. Pretty fascinating! www.youtube.com/watch?v=dg1AaAbQ3J4

WOOOOOOW!!!!

So, in light of my team inspiring me with their results…in light of this amazing study, I’ve decided to do a smaller shorter version and conduct my own test group. Here are the details:

DATES: July 1- July 14th- 2 week duration

TEST GROUP REQUIREMENTS: No change to nutrition or exercise necessary. Drink 2 Shakeology shakes each day. These can be used as meal replacements or snack replacements.

ACCOUNTABILITY: I can’t watch you drink your Shakeology every day, so instead we’ll use the Challenge Tracker App as well as a private FB group where you will log BOTH Shakeology drinks each day. You can use these groups to also ask questions along the way.

SUPPORT: If you participate in this group, you will receive daily health tips, recipes, and encouragement from me to keep you on track and support you through these 14 days. We will also have a weekly call available to call and ask questions.

TRACKING: You will be required to take the following measurements before and after the test group:

  • Full body photo in exercise clothes
  • Blood pressure
  • Resting pulse
  • Waist circumference

I wanted “abs” for my 40th Birthday

4796_BBC_Daily_Winners_MAR2017_SocialCard_22

The following inspirational transformation story has been shared from the Team Beachbody Blog. Check out the original post here.


Steve Valenzuela lost 18 lbs. with 22 Minute Hard Corps, Shakeology, and the Beachbody Performance supplements. Here’s the story that he shared with the Beachbody Challenge contest.

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I wanted to see my abs for my 40th birthday, so I took the 22 Minute Hard Corps challenge and finally found my abs. I work long hours as a medical sales rep going from hospital to hospital, eating like crap, and not having any energy to go to the gym. I was turning 40 and needed to change my life lifestyle so I picked up 22 Minute Hard Corps and it literally kicked my butt. Shakeology was my go-to shake everyday. I am now 40, nowhere near being a borderline diabetic. I’m in the best shape of my life. Thank you, Tony.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I have a family history of diabetes. My father died when he was 42 years of age due to diabetes and an unhealthy lifestyle. I had to make a change for my family and myself. I literally was unable to bend down and tie my shoes without losing my breath. I was so out of shape.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Trying to follow the meal plan while traveling for work was hard. I had to watch my portions and take my 22 Minute Hard Corps meal plan book with me. It helped make the best choices for me on the road. Beachbody On Demand along with Shakeology helped me stay on track and work out either at home or in a hotel room.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked the boot camp like style workout. You get in and out in less than 30 minutes a day. Push-ups, pull-ups, squats, and burpees are my favorite kind of workouts. Gets the heart pumping, and you’re sweating like hell every time.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Being able to stop eating processed foods was the major win for me. Of course revealing my abs is something I am proud of at 40. I’m also proud that I stayed on track with my meals and I finished the program.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I wake up with more confidence and energy every day. I feel like a million bucks and my family and friends are now trying Beachbody workouts and Shakeology. I’m also a Beachbody Coach now.

How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
Checking in on me and lots of words of encouragement.

How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program (such as Shakeology or Beachbody Ultimate Reset) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity?
All of the above. Shakeology and the Beachbody Performance Line helped me recover and achieve my results. My mood has changed for the better. I’m a way happier person today.2

Tell us about your experience with Beachbody On Demand. If applicable, how has it helped you achieve your goals?
Beachbody On Demand helped with my workouts while I was traveling for work. 22 minutes was the perfect workout on demand!

You can change your life, too. Take the Beachbody Challenge for the tools you need to Decide, Commit, and Succeed! Complete any Beachbody program, and enter your results for a free gift and a chance to win cash and prizes. What program are you committing to next?

3 Day Refresh: My Experience

Image result for 3 day refresh

YESTERDAY marked my ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY as both a customer and coach with Beachbody! I am SO overwhelmingly thankful that I said YES to this journey one year ago because WOW how it’s impacted our lives already and we are just getting started! 🙂 Speaking of one year…it has taken me that long to finally try Beachbody’s 3 Day Refresh program! Let me share with you the reason why…

I started my Beachbody journey to lose my baby weight after having our son. It was amazing and incredibly helpful. My extreme low back pain was nearly completely eliminated after one program, I dropped 20 pounds after baby and became stronger and leaner than I was before I was pregnant! Fast-forward one year…

This year around Christmas we found out we were expecting baby #2!! Our hearts were SO incredibly happy when those two dark blue lines appeared. Almost immediately I was overtaken by pregnancy hormones and they were stronger with this pregnancy than with my son. My skin was breaking out, I had strong food cravings, I was hungry ALL the time, and SOOO TIRED! The first part of pregnancy is never really fun…you’re sick, tired, and bloated. I felt ALL of that. My pants started to get super snug and I just felt BLAH…but when you have a baby on the way, you don’t care because all of that BLAH is totally worth it in the end! Our 9 week check up came around and our hearts were broken as we found out our little baby had stopped growing around 6 weeks. It completely crushed both me and my husband. It knocked me on my butt and it took me a minute to even want to try to get back up. For our complete miscarriage story, feel free to read my blog post here- https://baby-grower.com/2017/01/14/the-silent-struggle-our-story-of-miscarriage/

Physiologically speaking…even though I KNEW there was no longer a growing, living baby inside of me, it took my body a while to catch on. It is almost an unexplainable torture to grieve the loss of your baby while simultaneously battling pregnancy hormones. My body was still 2 months pregnant…I was still bloated, still battled fatigue, food cravings, aversions, nausea…It was brutal.

Thankfully, I have an amazing support system and I serve a gracious God who gave me the strength and perspective I needed day by day, sometimes minute by minute to continue fighting forward. Even though this pregnancy ended at 2 months…my body showed this pregnancy. I felt it…in my back, my growing hips, my belly…I felt it. This was one of the driving forces that helped me decide it was time to try out the 3-Day Refresh! It’s also why I am committed to this round of 22 Minute Hard Corps. It’s amazing how powerful the connection is between strengthening your muscles and your heart at the same time.

I hate sharing before and after pictures…it’s not any easier for me than it is for anyone else. I see ALL of my flaws and I see how far I have to go to be where I want to be…but there is something to be said about transparency and authenticity. I promised my followers that I’d share my results, so here they are… not huge results, but it was something for just 3 days! 🙂 PLUS the mental shift was the powerful part of this cleanse where the long term results will come. P.S…ignore the tiny monster who was having a melt down during my before pictures…HA!

FullSizeRender

I lost 1.5 inches in 3 different places of my abdomen for a total of 4.5 inches! That’s not too bad for 3 days! What really stuck out to me more than a physical transformation though, was the mental shift that happened for me during these 3 days. Let me explain…

Here is the schedule of supplements, shakes, & food for the 3 day Refresh:

Capture

As you can see…this truly is more of a cleanse. There is minimal food involved and a substantial amount of fluids with added vegetable based protein & fiber supplements throughout the day. As with anything, the majority of the struggle in trying anything new is in the mind. My body & mind are used to a routine. We have been meal planning regularly now for a year, so I’m used to my food portions spaced out every 3-4 hours. The 3 Day Refresh was successful in shaking up that routine. I found I APPRECIATED the food I ate more. I noticed my taste buds were more sensitive to the tastes of the vegetables. I could taste the natural saltiness in my celery, I appreciated the taste of unsweetened green or herbal tea. When I had sautéed kale, sauerkraut, and avocado for dinner, I genuinely appreciated my portion because it was the only actual “meal” I ate for that day. This was a nice shift…consuming with intention instead of out of habit.

ENERGY-

This was my BIGGEST concern. I’m not going to sugar coat it, my life is a bit nutzo. I wake up at 04:00am to either get some work done with my challengers, return email, or complete a workout. These 3 days I chose to back off on my intense workouts so this refresh could do it’s job, so I used this time for some much needed research and follow up. At around 05:00 I attempt to juggle getting ready for work, packing lunches & breakfast for me and hubby (SO thankful for meal prepping!), holding my little monster who wakes up almost every morning at 05:00 and doesn’t want to be put down, getting him ready for the day, dishes, coffee/tea, and try to get out of the door on time for a 8-9 hour day in prison (Don’t worry…I work there full time as an RN 🙂 ). I pull in the driveway usually around 4pm and have 3.5 hours to get chores done, clean the house, run errands, host conference, calls return emails, get our workout in if it wasn’t done in the morning, post on social media, and spend time with my family before baby (and his parents!) needs to be put to sleep. So, I can’t afford to have a decrease in energy. Surprisingly…I felt great for the most part for the entire 3 days. This is a big deal considering I cut coffee out completely! The first day I was a bit groggy as expected and towards the end of the 3rd day I could feel my body losing a little stamina, but other than that I had great energy!

 

DIGESTION-

This little refresh is designed to help give your digestive system a break and eliminate bloating and inflammation. This was true for me. HOWEVER, I will say that the fiber sweep can make you feel a little bloated at times. The psyllium husk it contains is designed to literally sweep the colon. Not in a gnarly “explosive diarrhea” way, but the fiber pushes toxins out of the colon and in doing so can make you a little… “gassy”. I wasn’t really eating much food, but my tummy was always rumbling. This wasn’t my favorite side effect, but I knew that meant the fiber sweep was doing it’s job. One of the KEY POINTS to remember during these 3 days is how essential fluids are. If you aren’t drinking enough hydrating fluids, the fiber sweep could potentially cause constipation and bloating itself. You want to aim to drink ATLEAST half of your body weight in ounces of water/herbal teas.

I expected to feel hungry during these 3 days, but surprisingly I was quite satisfied the majority of the time. If I got hungry, I munched on some celery sticks. By the 2nd day I noticed my stomach was flatter and my pants were loose.

 

IN A NUTSHELL-

I think this is a great little 3 day cleanse for anyone looking to kick-start their fitness program, weight loss, or metabolism. Even 3 days after ending the cleanse, I have noticed lingering positive effects. My energy has still been great, digestion is strong, and no bloating has returned. I feel like this program is accurately described as a “kick start” program because that is exactly what it does! PLUS it teaches us to be mindful of what we’re eating instead of becoming a mindless eater. That being said, I am very happy to be back to my meal planning and exercising on the 22 Minute Hard Corps program. I will definitely do this again down the road!
