How I changed my life with The Shift Shop

If you have not yet heard about the HOTTEST new workout coming out this July by Chris Downing and Beachbody... get ready!


I was so blessed to be asked by Corporate to participate in an exclusive elite coach test group for the Shift Shop. I jumped (literally) at the opportunity. I was scared and intimidated, but knew that meant I had to go for it. When fear creeps in, I let it be my compass. I am so thankful I listened to my soul and gave it all I got. We got to work every day with Chris (the creator). He went live with us, sent us videos, encouraging messages, and was an amazing coach and motivator.

This experience was life changing. It was a lot like when I went through my 200 hour yoga teacher training. The right grind gives you the right growth and boy did I grow.

I was blessed to have my whole family commit with me to this process.
So what did this commitment entail?

Shift Shop rule #1: Food is fuel.
We committed to following the meal plan that shifts each week. As your workouts ramp up, the carbs are reduced. By week 3 you have transitioned to a Low Carb High Protein diet. The program is an unlimited veggie program. So you are never hungry. Honestly it was a LOT of food. It is also a grain free program. I thought I would miss my bread and grains, but I was so full all the time I never craved it. Remembering this is a program for 21 days helps too. It is a program to shift your digestive system in the right direction and get your body moving like the machine it is. We had NO PROBLEM following the meal plan. We prepped 2 times a week and that was it. I found I had a lot more free-time because I usually cook every day. The meals were simple and tasty.

Here are a few examples of what we ate:










The next thing we committed to was pushing play on the workouts. Week 1 they are 25 minutes long. You alternate speed 25 and strength 25, with adding core to strength days. Core is an additional 14 minutes. Week 2 they ramp up to 35 minutes with the same alternating structure. Week 3 they are 45 minutes. There is an optional round 2 of this program that we also did where the workouts ramp up to 50 minutes.

Honestly.... I spend much more time than that watching other people live on TV so there was no excuse not to show up. The workouts are challenging in a GREAT way. Chris motivates you at all the right times and challenges you to use your spirit when your body gives up. I felt empowered and strong.

This was truly a blessing I will be forever grateful for. We finished strong. We did not cheat on our meal plan once. We did not miss a workout. So ya wanna see me and my families results?
 Me, Age 44 
 My husband Randy age 59

 My daughter Taylor age 24

My son-in-law Zak age 35

I am continuing to work with Chris in the coach test group as he still is talking to us daily and empowering us with motivational videos and working with us through our struggles. I am becoming a better coach because of him.


Shift #3 was our mindset. We teamed up and checked in each day in our online accountability group. Chris gives us daily messages, and in my group... I will also be giving messages along with Chris. So you will have the opportunity to have the same experience I did.

The program comes out to all Beachbody On Demand members July 12th, and I am leading a group through this same process. Chris and I will be guiding you along the way. This is an AMAZING opportunity to grasp the greatness that is within you.
Lets' get you set up with BOD now so you will be ready for the shift!
You can get set up here:

NOTE: Only people willing to do the entire program (meal plan and workouts) are allowed in my group. No half assers allowed. Shakeology is PART OF THE MEAL PLAN.

The entire program, plus access to all of my groups and all of my programs for a FULL YEAR is $160.

Please feel free to ASK ME A QUESTION.
I will be doing the program WITH you. The group registration CLOSES no later than July 17th as we begin PREPPING for the group. The first workout and meal is July 24th.
EMAIL me once you get your kit and I will add you to the group. I already have the meal plan up!

When ENOUGH is ENOUGH its time to take ACTION and change your life permanently

Hey beautiful.
Yep, I am talking to you. 
Right now I want you to STOP the negative self talk and realize how amazing you are. 
So you have dark circles under your eyes, from taking care of EVERYONE else but you. 
SO WHAT your tummy is stretched out from the LIFE you brought into this world. Maybe you haven't had time or money to make it to the hair or nail salon so a messy bun is a constant companion on your head. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! 

I realize first hand how much of our identity is given up when we decide to have children. I also know Mom's would not change a thing. We give our ALL to those we love. But... I am here to remind you.
YOU GOTTA FIRST LOVE YOURSELF!!!

You have those precious eyes watching. What do you want to teach them? 
Self love?
or
Self defeat?

It is a humbling experience to become a mom and no one quite prepares you for that. I know what it is like to have a tummy that feels like jello and NO energy to do anything about it. Which led me to just eating comfort food to console my self loathing thoughts. 

Is this you?

This is the place I was in 3 years ago. I was fat, sick and nearly dead..

Well maybe not, but I sure felt like it. I was 6 weeks POST operation for the removal of 3 cancer tumors in my body. My tummy had been sliced open 8 inches for the biggest tumor to be removed which REALLY did a number on my self esteem. I looked 6 months pregnant because of the HUGE tumor that was growing in my uterus.  Frustrated, defeated and full of tears I remember laying in bed thinking "THIS IS NOT THE WAY LIFE IS SUPPOSED TO BE!" 

I hated my skin, hated my hair, hated everything about me. I was angry at the world and I KNEW that I didn't want to feel that way any more. NEVER again! I made the decision to give myself the love I needed and wanted. So I could learn to love others and help others stop hating themselves. I never looked back. I didn’t feel good and I had to make a change. I was introduced to yoga, clean eating, and superfoods through my Cancer recover counseling and ended up getting more education in nutrition. I also documented the process and what I learned in my book: Nourish - The beginner's guide to eating healthy and staying fit. 

I fell in love with inversions. Headstand, handstand, pincha, but I could not hold them for long and my alignment was not awesome. I knew I needed more muscle and toning. I had lost 10 lbs just from adding superfoods and yoga into my life and I finally had more energy to add more. So I started adding a 30 minute workout to my life. What happened next...

Over the course of those next 3 months I focused on “ME” for at least 30-45 each day. I would push play for my workout session. I sweated, I cried, I thought I would never change, but then right before my eyes my body started to change. As I embraced clean eating and drank Shakeology daily my skin began to glow, my hair and nails got stronger, and I had more natural energy! I was stronger and I started to have more confidence. WHAT!!!! I was THAT girl who NEVER had EVER Stuck to a fitness program in my life. I always started our the year making a New Years Resolution to get in shape and then I was gone in 2 weeks and stuck paying a membership for the year. I was the girl who would walk into a gym, take some classes and then walk around doing the weights (COMPLETELY WRONG) acting like I knew what I was doing, then I would go make a huge italian dinner with bread and noodles and loads of wine. I had never permanently changed my diet before, but, I liked it! I mean I REALLY liked who I was transforming into, and I LOVED the way my LIFE was changing. 

This is my transformation of 2 rounds 21 day fix and 1 round 21 day fix extreme and Shakeology. Total time 3 months.

Total weight lost from start to finish -65lbs. 
I started running little groups of other women and men that wanted to change their lives too. 
That is when the miracles started rolling in!
My best friend Penny has lost OVER 100 pounds so far!

My daughter lost 35 pounds!

And that was just the beginning! As of now I personally have been able to help HUNDREDS of people reach their goals. I also started a team that is joining forces with me and we all work together to help people as much as we can. 

My inversions sure changed too!!!

I can say that because of my team, the support of the challenge groups and the other women in the group I truly have found a way to love the skin that I am in! 


We all have imperfections.  I earned my imperfections and I learned to love them! They are a part of who I am. Does this speak right to your heart??? Then maybe its time for you to trust me and finally take that leap of faith and join my next challenge group!

So now, my job as a coach is to pay it forward. I am going to be launching a specific accountability and support group that is geared towards matching you up and with a fitness program and nutrition guide to meet your needs but to walk you through the process of changing your unhealthy habits, creating a more positive mindset, embracing your imperfections and chucking the word diet to the wind. We are not dieting, we are creating a healthy lifestyle. Because we are supposed to be ABUNDANT in ALL areas of our lives. 

So STOP making excuses and make a DECISION to change instead. I promise you will work just as hard on your excuses that you will on effort towards your goals. So why not work toward the POSITIVE?

What Do I Need For This Group?
-Each participant is required to have me as their coach. You can create an account here. 

-You are required to do a fitness program, which I will help you to pick the one that best fits your needs. EMAIL ME to tell me you want in we will go over your needs, your current struggles and then decide the program for you.

-You are required to replace 1 meal a day with Shakeology for the duration of the 5 weeks because as I am teaching you how to change your eating habits and give you the tools to make this a lifestyle change we want to have at least 1 meal each day that is quick and easy but isn’t lacking in your nutritional quality. Shakeology does that! It is my saving grace because quite honestly there are days that I am so busy that I don’t have time to make a balanced meal so this is my go to!! It has EVERYTHING your body needs, and is superfoods! Plus it really does taste awesome!

–You are required to log into our closed My Challenge Tracker App daily where I am going to share tips, recipes, meal plans, tips to handle eating out, and emotional eating plus improving your body image. We will truly take your journey one day at a time! I have been through the process and I know at what point you want to throw in the towel, I know when you hit plateaus and what situations tend to trip you up. I have tools and tips for all of those. There is no more trying to navigate this change on your own. We are working at this together.

–My goal is to get you a program that you are excited about and that you start and complete it. I do not want it to be something that sits on your shelf and collects dust!

Does this sound like something you would like to do?

If so, take the time to EMAIL ME. I will contact you within 24 hours to discuss whether this would be a good fit! I am accepting a small group of customers for this group and I would love to have some motivated women who are really ready to make a change! Let’s face it, there will never be a perfect time. The right time is now! So let’s get started!

I am NOT going to let you fail! I am giving you my word that I am going to support, guide and help you to truly make a change, live a more positive life and embrace who you are on the inside out! We live in a world full of comparison and its time to chuck that to the wind and just BE YOU!!!!!!
Cannot wait to help you achieve ALL of your hopes and dreams. LET'S TALK!

Healthy Sweet Potato Nachos - dairy free option




EVERYTHING on this plate is dairy free, with the exception of my Greek yogurt. Thankfully my body processes that wonderfully. 

Everything on here is actually really healthy for me!
Sweet Potatoes
Coconut Oil
Sea salt
Garlic
Chicken
Tomato
Avocado
onion

Cheese made from almond and rice. 


HEALTHY nacho's that HIT THE SPOT!
So let me tell you about the cheese!
They have ZERO trans fats and are made from nuts, or rice. 
AND... everything is CERTIFIED organic.
They know a way to my heart. 

You can use a spicier Jalapeno Jack 

-or-
you can use a nice cheddar!

I got both of mine from Lisanatti foods
To make the sweet potato nachos...

3 large sweet potatoes, washed and sliced into 1/4-inch rounds
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 large avocado, pit removed and diced
Sour cream or Greek yogurt

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Place the sweet potato rounds on a large baking sheet. You might need two baking sheets if you run out of room. You don’t want to overcrowd the sweet potatoes. Toss the sweet potatoes in olive oil and season with sea salt and pepper. Bake for 20 minutes. Use a spatula to flip the sweet potato rounds. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until sweet potatoes are crisp.
Remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle cheese Bake until cheese is melted, about 5-7 minutes.
Remove pan from oven and top with all your favorite toppings. I used cooked chicken, avocado, red onion, tomato, greek yogurt. and it was SO YUM! 


As you can see the alternative cheese shreds and melts perfectly. I am thrilled, happy and full. 




Easy quick clean pizza sauce




I am an organic, non-gmo, tree hugging, clean eating, yogi. My past was not so. Cancer whipped me into shape and I am now here to help you all be pro-active with your health. There are simple steps you can take. Like this one for instance. Stop buying pre-made pizza sauce and marinara. 90% of them are LOADED with sugar, not to mention the chemicals and preservatives. I can show you how to whip up pizza sauce for 2 pizzas in NO time at all
Let me show ya how!

Easy quick clean pizza sauce

1 can organic Tomato Sauce
1 can organic Tomato Paste
1/2 Tbsp fresh garlic
1 Tbsp italian seasoning
sea salt to taste


Stir together over low heat to blend flavors for 5-10 minutes. BOOM.. ready to spread on that crust. 
Now let's talk crust...

If you know me by now, you KNOW I am NOT gonna through some sub par, fake filler food crust at you. So today let me introduce Boulder Dough, who created a pizza crust recipe made with healthy, clean ingredients; gluten free and vegan; and taste great! 

They come shrink wrapped and READY to go!
I just preheated my baking stone, because that is how I roll, and placed an unwrapped dough on it. 




Top with your awesome pizza sauce you just made.

UH OH!!!!
Time for cheese. Usually the part that makes or breaks the pizza... AND the part that adds LOADS of unhealthy fats. For those dairy intolerant... here is your exit ... right? 
WRONG!

Let me introduce to you Lisanatti Foods Almond Mozzarella that is OMG worthy. 
Lisanatti vegetarian cheese alternatives are known for their exceptional texture, flavor, and melting performance. . Lisanatti cheese alternatives are easy to use in favorite recipes as a cholesterol-free, gluten-free substitute for traditional dairy cheese. For dietary changes to improve health, our vegetarian cheese alternatives contain no Trans fats or saturated fats, are low in sodium and good sources of calcium and protein! So Add it to your pizza pie! 



Top it with your favorite toppings. 
We chose some grilled chicken and onions, but you can add anything you like! 

Bake at 425 for 15 minutes and you have a WONDERFUL pizza! 

EVERYONE in our house LOVED the crust and the cheese and didn't feel icky and bloated after. 


The sauce was bomb too! 
Enjoy!

Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity


What is opportunity worth to you?

As I am closing up the final days of the first month in 2017, I am overwhelmed with gratitude and excitement watching the new members of team nourish take off, get their first big paychecks, advancing in rank, getting featured on various fitness apparel and gears sites!!! NOTHING makes me happier than watching others thrive in this business using the tools I have taught them. 

Sometimes I think back to all the people I talked to who WANTED this opportunity, but let fear get the better of them, so they let it pass them by. I think about what their bank accounts and workout wardrobe would look like now. What friendships they have missed out on. I think of their missing faces at summit when we are all together celebrating. I think about them being stuck at that job they told me they wanted out of. A WHOLE YEAR just GONE and they are still stuck in the same situation. All because of fear or lack of knowledge.

What REALLY saddens me most are the ones that are doing the job already, for nothing, getting nothing in return and missing out on reaching and HELPING thousands more with their posts because they are afraid to believe in their power. 

So the text on this image rings SO true to me.... how missed opportunity is so expensive. I do this to help save others from the ugly path of cancer that I went down. I tried all gimmicks before and then cancer taught me there are no shortcuts. You have to eat right, show up and workout, and also work on your mindset to make a shift happen in your life. 

So to all I have spoken to in the past. To all who have watched my posts about joining #TeamNourishbut you just ignored that tug. NOW is the time to TAKE ACTION and kick fear to the curb and START. Trust that my team and I have you. We will walk or run with you. love you, encourage you, inspire you, challenge you, and work WITH you to get you to all your hopes and dreams. 

I am looking for people that want their job to have purpose. Your earnings are a direct reflection of how many people YOU HELP. 

Are you finally ready to stop with the excuses? 
5 spots left and we start Feb 6th.
