I love Shakeology for breakfast

Shakeos are perfect for teachers on the "GO,GO,GO"!!! Here I am taking my daughter to the bus stop then heading off to meet my bright eyed kindergartners.

21 Day Fix Prep

*Fun Tip- I bought color coded labels at Target and organized all of my pantry foods to match the color containers for the 21 day fix.

My 11 year old daughter also got in on the action as she emptied spices we never use, and was like a little chemist putting together the ingredients for the "21 Day Fix" Spices- so much fun. It has truly become a family adventure.

Join a Challenge Group

Please message me if you are interested in joining my next online Health and Fitness Accountability Group beginning on Monday, January 19th:



Health and Fitness Motivation Board

Create a health and fitness motivation board to hang up wherever you decide to do your workouts. I will be taking a blue post-it off each time I complete a workout. I am ready for a healthy lifestyle!

Labeling the containers

I thought it would be fun to clear out a shelf in 1 of my kitchen cabinets, and add color coded labels to my 21 Day Fix containers. Of course, I also put in my Shakeology bag and cup (my healthy breakfast every morning.

All About Me

I love being a wife, mother, and kindergarten teacher....but it takes a lot of multitasking, and can be very stressful. In recent months, I have just felt so overwhelmed, so out of balance with my life. I just felt tired all the time.

Of course when I sat still and reflected I knew what was missing right away... a healthy lifestyle. I have never eaten healthy or exercised consistently. Admittedly, I never really had to worry about my weight until after my 2nd child was born at age 34. Suddenly I realized that I can't eat junk food and not gain a ton of weight. So,  I would say that I have been on the weight loss/diet rollercoaster for the past 12 years (gain 10, lose 5, gain 15, etc.).

Over the past couple of years I am happy to say that I actually did adopt 1 healthy habit- beginning the day with a nutritional shake. Now, I have tried many brands, but I have to say that I am absolutely in LOVE with Shakeology. I have more energy, my sugar cravings are down, and has improved my digestion.

Drinking Shakeology led me to...Beachbody. I began to browse around and learned about the Beachbody Challenge: drink Shakeology every day (which I was already doing), select a workout program, sign up with a Beachbody Coach, and join a challenge group. So that is exactly what I did. It turns out that my son Erik's Business Teacher was also Beachbody Coach. Her name is Sarah Griffith and I am forever grateful to her. After a long conversation, she suggested trying the 21 Day Fix as my workout and nutrition program. 

I felt so passionate about changing my lifestyle and make eating healthy and exercising  a HABIT that I immediately signed up to be a Beachbody Coach. I can't wait to be a product of the product. I am so excited to be going on this lifelong journey to a healthy lifestyle.
