22 Minute Hard Corps Test Group!
Beachbody Corporate has picked about 60 people out of all the coaches in the company to be in a test group for 22 Minute Hard Corps which releases in March of 2016. It is sort of like their own personal Challenge Group! Well, I am proud to say that my husband, Matt Rody, was asked to be apart of it!! Here is my husband announcing that he gets to be in the Test Group:
“Merry Christmas to me!! ?. Holy moly I can’t believe this just happened! Out of over 400,000 coaches and countless others that do the workouts…..I, me, muah, was somehow selected by Corporate Beachbody to be in a test group. Not just any test group and not with just any workout! We are talking the not yet released 22 Minute Hard Corps, made by Beachbody and the one and only, my favorite instructor ever, Tony Horton!!!!!
To say I am excited would be the understatement of my life! ?. I am so very humbled, but also giddy with exuberance and ready to share the process starting on January 4th for the next 8 weeks!! It is going to military style…I am nervous!! Well, wish me luck and who knows, maybe I’ll end up on an infomercial!! ?? #getsome“
Here is a preview of what you are going to be looking forward to!!
22 Minute Hard Corps is going to be amazing. The reason I love working with Beachbody is that Carl Daikeler and Jon Congdon, the owners, really try to find new workouts that fit our crazy lifestyles. This workout does not require weights, which will be awesome for a lot of people. Matt is ready to “bring it” as Tony Horton always says. “22 Minute Hard Corps is your no-nonsense, boot-camp-butt-kicking fitness program. Legendary trainer Tony Horton has created this simple to follow program inspired by techniques used in the military. Each 22-minute workout is a total body drill designed to get you “boot camp fit” in 8 weeks.” Follow my husband Matt Rody on Facebook as he goes through the process! Get ready because 22 Minute Hard Corps is going to be amazing!

This is my weight loss journey.
Oh my goodness, weight loss is no joke! It is so much easier to gain it than make it go away! How many can relate with that?! It took a lot of hard work and patience, as well as consistency to for weight loss to happen. In my case, with the help of Chalene Johnson and Turbofire, as well as getting my nutrition on point grounded with Shakeology, I was motivated to have a transformation like never before!! Come with me and watch how my life was changed and how you can too!!!
How I Reached My Weight Loss Goal!!
This is me in a nut shell!! I love Turbofire, it has changed my life. I am a stay at home mom, with two beautiful children. My kids and husband are my life! I knew I wanted to get in the best shape of my life and finally found a way to do it. This was me prior to Turbofire, and actually before being pregnant with kids. Being married and lazy, I started getting chunky. I was eating way too much and definitely not eating the right foods. I needed some weight loss bad!!
I purchased Turbofire and my life will never be the same, the weight loss began. I not only lost weight, I transformed into what I had always wanted. I had gone to the gym most my life. I had done weights, circuit training, some crossfit……. You name it I had tried it. But working out from home, consistently, with a trainer/coach like Chalene Johnson, changed the game.
I also changed my eating. I started using Shakeology. This gave me both energy and a better frame of mind. I literally could feel the difference as my body got used to it the first few weeks. Now it is a staple and my entire family has it everyday. I also found out I was allergic to gluten. I removed it from my diet and has really changed my life. The bloat is gone and feel so much better.
I want to encourage women and men, that no matter where you are in your life, you can always make a change, you can have a transformation!!! I thought I was doing great before kids. I thought I was in great shape! I was so wrong and I feel so much better now! I lost 41lbs in the eight months….that’s a lot of weight loss. I since have lost about 3 or 4 more. My body likes to be around 137 or 138, being 5’7″! Even though I feel I need more weight loss, my body really doesn’t like going below that. It has been an incredible journey.
I finally have my Lulu gear fitting the way I want! That is the benefit of working hard to reach your goals. Since my transformation I still workout all the time and am continually transforming into a better “me”!! What is holding you back from becoming a better “you”?!! I want to help. The journey is not easy, but it is doable and can be done.
I love helping others and this has been life changing. You may need a life change and I would love to see you transform into a more healthy and fit you!! Feel free to contact me….I will help you along the road as you create your own transformation!!

Remember to Love!
Love is all important. Have you ever had something scary happen that will forever be with you?
Last year to the day, my love, Samantha and I were in a terrible car accident. It was your average day driving home from our errands and I started getting nauseous. We were only a few blocks from home and I thought for sure I’d be able to make it there before getting sick.
The next thing I knew, I woke up to my baby girl cryingin the seat behind me, my Tahoe that was now crushed by a telephone pole and people standing all around us. It was something you never think will happen to you, to black out behind the wheel. I actually passed out right before a traffic light, sideswiped a car in oncoming traffic and then hit the telephone pole about 150 feet past the intersection. It was a miracle I hit the pole because the alternative would have been an apartment complex at 35 or so miles per hour. God’s love is gracious!
It was the scariest thing that’s ever happened to me, to our family. I thank God so often that his plan wasn’t to take me home. I’m so grateful that it was just a bizarre accident. Even after going to the ER, they had no answers to why it happened after giving me an MRI and CT scans. I can’t even imagine what life would’ve looked like for Matt to be left behind with two small children we love so dearly.
It gets me thinking though, about our health and how precious it is. Sure I’ve had some major healing to do with my body. That was not a small impact and my body took the brunt, but what if I hadn’t been working on my flexibility and strengthening my muscles prior to this? Can you imagine how many issues I could have had?
I believe wholeheartedly that the stronger and more physically in shape you are going into something, the faster and better you will heal. I’ve seen it in my body now firsthand. It starts with love. With loving ourselves and those around us, that we see the importance of working out and eating healthy.
I hear time and time again, from mom’s who not only want to look good for their husband but also want to be a strong example of health to their children. But then life gets in the way and there is no sense of urgency. No real “reason” to really make those workouts a priority. They forget that those workouts, that eating right is a sign of love to their family. That love is an action, not just a word.
I want you to LOVE your body in every aspect. To feel confident in your own skin and be able to get dressed with a deep sense of knowing, that you have put in the focus and energy. That you are showing your family how much you love them. Especially, knowing that you are setting yourself up for more years of happiness as you focus on your body now.
These programs have changed not only my husband and my life but also the lives of SO many of our friends. If you can’t tell, I’m really passionate about helping you feel your best. Not just for today but for years to come. Why these programs? Because I know they work and they come with a plan of attack. They make part of the process easier. They help us love ourselves easier. I am not saying we need a six pack either, I am talking about being healthy from the inside out. It is about seeing consistent, small attainable victories. I have a passion and a love to see people win this battle and change their families lives, just as mine has. Mine actually started with my husband wanting to love us more and prove it through action and a change of lifestyle. What are you going to do?
I am inviting you to join us in our 21 Day Fix Holiday Challenge.
The 21 Day Fix has changed our eating habits and let us track our food in a really easy way. We all know that nutrition is just as important as the workouts and that’s why it makes so much sense.
It TAUGHT me how to eat clean and to eat exactly what I needed for my goals, and not feel deprived, sending me into a binge.
Little did I know that these new changes would become my daily habits that are always a part of me…that make me who I am today.
Here is what comes with this challenge:
✅Personalized meal planning system
✅30 minute at-home daily workouts
✅Daily superfood meal replacement shake
✅One-on-one coaching with me!
Don’t miss this opportunity! Show those closest to you how much you love them because you never know what tomorrow brings…

Hammer and Chisel is Almost Here!
Hammer and Chisel, a new program, launches in 3 days!!! Don’t wait to grab your partner and get your groove on before the new year! My husband and I are about to do this together!
Seriously though, rewind 5 yrs ago…we were always sick, ate family size Papa Murphy’s pizza’s and I would make us homemade chocolate chip cookies ( all in one night ?)! We didn’t think long-term about our health yet and we thought fitness and nutrition were two separate things. Well, he got serious while I was pregnant with our second baby and then I got serious. Now we’re both serious if you can’t tell by our faces!
Has it been easy? Nope! But we can finally say after all the arguments and discussions about who wants to workout when and who bought junk at the store ect ect ? we have a plan and we stick with it. The bonus is….we get to do some of them together. We will also be sticking to the meal plan, and yes it comes with containers to help you prep correctly!!!
Hammer and Chisel is Official Sagi Kalev and Autumn Calabrese teaming up to bring an amazing 30-40 minute workout you can do with limited equipment and space. We start Dec 14th and we are going to rock it through the Holidays. If you have to start late, that’s okay! At least grab your stuff before it sells out and have your plan!
What do we do from here? You comment below “I’m Interested” (as long as you’re not working with another coach) and we will add you to our group. You get first access to the challenge pack once it launches. Then we help you get started when the time is right for you! You can also email me at: email@example.com. ?

Fitness Transformation and a Bit about Me!
I have some new followers lately and I wanted to say hello and thank you for joining my in our continual fitness transformation!! I am honored to share my journey and new things as I learn them. Here’s a little bit about me.
- I’m a wife ❤, sister, daughter and mom to 5 year old Samantha and 3 year old Jude.
- I am saved by grace and didn’t start truly living until I surrendered my life to Jesus. God’s plan is better than anything I could come up with anyway 😉
- I am a former makeup artist turned health coach.
- I am also an Esthetician and spray tan addict (I mean artist ;))
- I am obsessed with helping women feel more beautiful from the inside out.
- I am an outgoing introvert.
- I consider my main two hobbies working out and shopping.
- I lost 40 lbs with Beachbody nutrition and home workouts and continue to do each new program as it launches.
- I decided to help women know they could lose weight, have energy, and do it without feeling like they had to starve themselves.
- I run online challenge groups to give the best support to my clients.
- I used to eat a bag of gummy candy a day (ie sour patch kids or Haribo gummy bears) Now currently a dark chocolate addict!
- My kids and I have been gluten-free for three years.
- I’ve struggled with infertility and PCOS.
- I had acne my whole life (hence the career choices I made and the gummy bears may have had something to do with it).
- I’ve been incredibly blessed to be able to snuggle my kids and still have a career where I earn more per month than what I made at Nordstrom and the Spa I worked at. #TeamShine
My fitness transformation has been going on for 3 years now. The photo on the right is to remind you all (and myself) to speak positive things to and about yourself, to know you are stronger than you think, and to never stop letting your light shine.
Hard work pays off, let’s go make a fitness transformation for you too!! XO

Having a daily routine is so very important. Listening to the BEST podcast on what a balanced approach is to nutrition. The top tips on what most fit people do. I did a lot of this naturally because I was so fed up wth crazy diets and restrictions, I had to find a way to live and feel GOOD in my body without feeling like everything was taken from me. Restrictions stink but some things need to be a “no-no”. For me that was excessive candy and fast food. I don’t like to think about what I took away when I lost my baby weight. I like to think about what I put in. I set up a very structured daily routine to make sure that I would stay on task. The following breaks down the main 4 things that I consistently do daily.
Here’s the 4 items that have helped me the most:
? One salad a day to your daily routine (And by salad I mean add carrots, cucumbers, almonds, dried cranberries, anything healthy really. Here is an article on some ideas for what to put in your salad.)
? Way more water to your daily routine (at least 64 ounces, more if you are feeling under the weather. My rule of thumb is half my body weight in ounces.)
? Daily exercise I enjoyed and could work into MY daily routine (21 Day Fix, Body Beast, Insanity and my favorite Turbofire are all between 30-50 minutes. They are also all at home workouts, that I can fit in any time. And Shakeology…everyday)
? Being at peace with knowing if I treating my body well, it would do what I wanted. Now that it is a marathon and that my daily routine will help me finish this very long race. It is NOT about sprinting and stopping after 2 weeks.
Those are my 4 rules. If I continually make those 4 areas my daily routine, I tend to feel good and continually keep away the softness that I so very much dislike. One last tip, which is very hard for me, focus on the wins. That means the small victories. For example, I might not lose much weight, may even gain weight, but because I take photos and measurements, I can always see small victories. So, know that it will take time to see the change and that your body needs time and consistency to change. I hope this helps and encourages you to push towards that ever changing transformation. Go and make your daily routine that works for you!

Weekend weight loss tips:
Use these weight loss tips. Don’t turn your back on your goals this weekend. I promise you’ll regret it. I’ve done this way too many times and I always feel super bummed on Monday. You work so hard during the week and the weekend should be fun but still in alignment with your goals. Here’s some weight loss tips for you:
1. Do an extended cardio session. ?Take a long walk or run and get your mind ready for the week ahead.
2. Give yourself one treat meal and enjoy it -guilt free. ??Make sure your other meals are fueling you and you’re also getting your water in. I get just on the weekends and let my meals/water take a back seat. Keep track and focus on it.
3. Spend time prepping and shopping for the week ahead. This will save you more time and energy on those busy weekdays. Cook some meats, cut veggies and pre-cook rice or quinoa.
4. Catch up on sleep, don’t deplete it. Proper sleep helps your body fight sickness and repairs it for better workouts.
❤Have so much fun but keep those goals in the back of your mind!! It is not an easy road at all but an ever so necessary one.. It is also not at all something you want to skip. I have skipped it many times and have suffered the consequences. I love having accountability! Having a group of women, pushing you on is so important. I know you can do anything, I’m your biggest fan! ❤
Remember that moderation is a huge key as well. I seem to always forget to mention this one. Just keep things palm sized. You don’t need your entire arm!! Keep up the hard work and dedication. Thanks for checking out my weight loss tips.

Genevieve blows me away with this transformation Tuesday! She is a full time working mom and takes pride in her health every day. Here is a peek into her story and life ——->>>>>
“I did not lose much, less than 10 pounds. But the daily balance is my best tool to measure my progress. I prefer to look at how my clothes fit, take my measurements and some pictures. I’ve worked out for about 20 years, many years of running and gyms. I will be 40 soon. Honestly, I have never felt so well and healthy since I discovered Shakeology. The nutrients keep me going on the days I don’t have time to eat breakfast or lunch. The battle is a daily one. It’s not easy but I have to say I look and feel better than I ever have.”
Her French text says “I am too tired, I have a busy week but I can do it!! ”
Excuses don’t lead us to our final destination. Avoiding them is what takes you places. If you mess up, know there will be another opportunity to make a better choice. Get back on the right path and don’t worry about being perfect. Even if it takes longer than you thought, keep running to your destination.
I feel the exact same way as her! The daily habits are the ones we master, not getting on the scale. I love to brag on my fellow team mates because they work so hard not only on themselves but with all of their clients.
Well done my friend and thank you for letting me share part of your journey. I wish we lived closer!!! Maybe a trip to Quebec is in order someday soon XO Another successful transformation Tuesday thanks Genevieve…you inspire me!

Moderation is such an important part of our lives. But I also know that hitting it hard for a short period of time is what pushes you out of where you are, to where you want to be. I did that after baby number two for about 4-5 months. I used the workout Turbofire with Chalene Johnson, who was perfect!
Adding a salad for lunch, daily, is my secret sauce, what keeps me in moderation. But after I hit my goal, I took a step back and told myself I would never quit. I would stick to a lifestyle change and not lose my progress or fall back to my old yo-yo patterns. I continually push play on these amazing workouts for women, and yes, that even means lifting weights! I love Body Beast! It has changed my body for the good, did not get me bulky….but definitely helped my curves! 😉
Speaking of Body Beast, I was super scared of lifting heavy weights. My husband had been bugging me for a year, before I finally decided to give it a try. It works. It literally is amazing. It is my go to in staying consistent. I use it as a fill in. It is just a great workout for any woman. I know why I was so scared. I thought I would bulk up, that I would get super big. Weight lifting for women is so very important. I recommend it in moderation. You don’t need to go crazy, but it should be added to your regimen of monthly workouts.
Going extreme all the time works for about 2% of people and really makes you run the risk of injury. Let’s be women of moderation. Let’s be women who never quit and who keep the healthy lifestyle going always! Push through, stay consistent, don’t give up! Who’s with me?!
