  • 21 Day Fix Meal – Food Made Easy!

     

    21 Day Fix Meal

    When I started looking at food for FUEL instead of ENTERTAINMENT, that’s when my game changed and this 21 Day Fix meal is perfect.  Food has always been a trigger.  I had no real control of my portions, I had no control of what I was eating in general.  I ate “healthy” food while I was out and about, but would have a ton of dressing, or fries….when those can be the most damaging items for my transformation.  Maintaining consistency and moderation were the two essential keys to see change, that would last.

    ​I get to think of my meals in colors now, thanks to these handy-dandy-portion-control containers. I can eat a variety of meals and still have daily balance. Eating out is easy now because I can eyeball what my portions should be. ???? Knowing what you should do is most the battle we fight.  That was my main problem….I thought I was doing it right and yet I saw hardly any improvements.  I am not talking weight either; I am talking inches, pants fitting better, more energy and attitude change!  These are the portions I had with this 21 Day Fix meal.

    1 Red (cod)
    1 Yellow (organic brown rice)
    ​1 Green (broccoli)

    For my specific plan in the 21 Day Fix Extreme guide, I get 3 greens a day, 4 reds and 2 yellows. Some other colors too ???but you can tell that losing weight does not mean starving yourself. It’s actually quite the opposite.  So many women I talk to feel they need to eat less to accomplish their goals!  This is so far from the truth, most the time!

    Finally, if you are looking for more recipes, Fixate is a great recipe book.  It has a ton of meal plans and gives you the container amounts you need.  I recommend it for any 21 Day Fix meal plans you might want to make.  And when you get to use your daughter’s princess salt and pepper, everything tastes better ?

  • Beachbody International is happening!!

    Did you hear? Beachbody International is Happening!!

    I wasn’t sure when this day would come but it’s quickly approaching!!! The Beachbody nutrition, fitness and Coaching opportunity is going international! I have NO idea where we are headed yet, all that we have been told by corporate is that we are going to be opening in a new market later this year and I am PUMPED. If you want to be the first to know when we hear where we are headed, be sure to fill out the form on this page!

    So what does this mean?

    I get a lot of requests from people outside of Canada and the U.S. who want to join our Coaching team and there is not much I can do.

    I even get people who have been doing Beachbody Programs for years, they have been getting amazing results and even helping other people through their own weight loss journey’s, but they cannot take the next step and Coach because of where they live. Soon this will change for some of you. We will enter one new market this year and in my opinion this means that we will continue expanding into even more markets soon. I am so excited to make TEAM SHINE a worldwide team. Three years ago I made it my mission to help empower as many people as I can, to take action on their health and fitness and get focused on living their best life built on a foundation of health and fitness.

  • NEW Annual All Access Pass – Don’t Miss Out!

    All Access Pass

     

    Hey Fit Friends!

    It’s 6 weeks into 2017 and I’m curious…how are YOU doing with your goals?  Do you feel like you may need a fresh start in February? Me, too!!!  Our family was sick for most of January.  But sick or not, if you are anything like the “old” me, this is about the time I would start to fall off the wagon.  I would begin falling back into my late night snacking habits or forget my vision of what I was really setting out to do.  Here’s what’s so GREAT about this year, we don’t have to go back to our old ways.  There’s a new way of thinking and it is not the “quick fix” mentality.  It’s a long-term mindset.

    Let me explain more….

    You know how I emailed last month about the NEW Annual All Access Pack?  It’s basically Beachbody’s “Netflix” of Fitness deal and it’s been a game changer for so many on our team. I am seeing results of 8 lbs LOST for a busy working mom of 3, 16 lbs and 22 inches off for one focused woman – all in ONE month.  Yep, changes are happening all over the place and if you have not jumped on this wagon, the time is NOW.  So this Netflix deal is the Beachbody On Demand Exclusive ALL ACCESS Pass. For only $199, you get access to over $6000 worth of programs, nutrition guides, and extra deluxe workouts.  In addition, you get access to the 3 NEW programs that Beachbody is coming out with this year!!!  I don’t know what they are yet, but I know they will be GOOD!!  This price is ONLY good through the end of February.  My guess is that it will go up SIGNIFICANTLY in price in March if they keep it going, which it should because it’s an amazing deal!

    Here is the link to take advantage the All Access Pass.  CLICK ME!!! 

    Need a quick recap of the All Access Pass?  Here is the scoop:

    * Let me break it down for you….so for a FULL YEAR you get unlimited access to hundreds of workout programs — like P90X3, Insanity, 21 Day Fix, Core de Force, Body Beast — you name it!! Every single workout that Beachbody has ever made plus any new programs that come out this year! I would have KILLED for this when I signed up. You would have immediate access to LITERALLY EVERY SINGLE WORKOUT that I have used to lose weight, tone up, and stay in shape over the past 4 years!  

    all access pass, beachbody on demand, stacy rody, allacess, all acess

    ALL of our workouts stream LIVE from your computer, phone, tablet or smart t.v.  Not only that, but you can count on being a part of my online fitness groups for the next year so you get the support and accountability to keep you committed!  Did you know that 70% of people without a coach end up quitting?  That is not what I want for you.

    SAY what?????  It’s cheaper than most gym memberships and you get to workout at home….no fighting for equipment, driving to the gym, waiting for classes. Just push play and you’re done!

    Here’s what you get with the All Access Pass:

    -A FULL YEAR’S ACCESS to all Beachbody programs ever created and to come out in 2017

    -One month supply of the famous nutrient dense Shakeology (we all know you can’t out train a bad diet, get one meal a day you don’t have to plan)

    -7 piece Portion Fix Color Coded Containers and Shakeology shaker

     

    all access pass, beachbody on demand, on demand, shakeology, stacy rody

    All of the above (yes, you get ALL 3 items) for only $199 through the end of this month only!

    I would so love to help you get to your goals! That’s my PASSION! I am here as your coach to HELP you, guide you every step and encourage you!   I would love to add YOU to my monthly online challenge groups to give you the support and daily accountability that most of us so desperately need!

  • Join the Health Bet…and see how you can get the All-Access Beachbody on Demand challenge pack!

     What Is The All Access Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack & Membership?

     

     Team Beachbody launched a brand new option for its customers and coaches called the All-Access Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack. It’s an insane value and will change your whole mindset on fitness!!  Check this out! 

    There are now more options than ever to have access to the tools that can help you achieve the look and feel that you want!  I discovered Team Beachbody when I was pregnant with my son 4 years ago.  I decided to start a program called TurboFire after I had him because I knew I needed something to give me energy and get my body back in shape after two pregnancies.  It seriously kicked my BUTT and it totally changed my life.  Every afternoon when the kiddos were napping (or no napping) I would pop in my DVD, move the ottoman from in front of the couch and workout. I learned how to eat clean through my coach and our challenge group.  I found support in other women who were also setting goals and wanting more for their families.  I was forever changed because of the accountability and daily nutrition I found in my simple meal, Shakeology.  This whole experience that I now get to pay forward to you, has changed the course of my family’s culture in more ways than I can even start to describe. 

    So here’s what is happening!!!

    Last week, the CEO of Team Beachbody Carl Daikeler announced a new option for anyone to take advantage of.  The Annual All-Access Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack & Membership which provides total access to every program available on Beachbody ON Demand, plus future releases.  So that means that every single program Beachbody has ever created from P90X, Turbofire, Insanity, 10 Minute Trainer to new ones like Cize, T25, 22 Minute Hard Corps, Hammer and Chisel, Insanity Max30, 21 Day Fix and Fix Extreme, Core De Force and more are on a digital library you can access plus anything new that Beachbody releases you get INSTANT access at no additional charge for an entire 12 months.  That is incredible!!!!  Starting on December 27th you will be able to purchase either an annual membership or the Annual All Access Beachbody On Demand + Shakeology Challenge Pack.  This is an incredible opportunity for me to help you get even better results.

     

    WHY is this so Awesome?

    I love the All Access Challenge Pack because it gives you:

    • 1 Year Membership to Beachbody On Demand (BOD) with all content included, plus future releases.
    • Shakeology (choice of 30-day supply on home direct)
    • Portion Fix (includes 7 piece portion control container system, eating guide, large blue container and shaker cup)
    • Business Starter Kit Waived if you choose the coach enrollment option.
    • You get all of this for $199 for the entire year  (12 months) and there is no monthly fee.

    BOD, Beachbody On Demand, All Access Challenge Pack, all access, beachbody on demand, beachbody, fitmom, fit mom, 2017, make a change, goals 2017, life change, make a difference, not a diet

    The points I listed above is worth thousands of dollars and for 12 months you are getting access to everything that Beachbody has ever created plus anything new through the year.  That is awesome but the real reason I am excited is this.  You can purchase this pass and together we can choose to start with, for example, 21 Day Fix.  You can complete 21 Days of the program, at the end of the 21 days we can have a discussion around what program you are going to do next.  What your goals are, what you have already accomplished and how we can help to tweak your plan to get you results.  Maybe after the 21 day fix you decide you want to add in more cardio.  We can move over to T25 or Core De Force as the next program.  Or let’s say you have an injury that is preventing you from completing the 21 Day Fix, we can switch programs and move over to the 3 week yoga retreat until you are feeling well enough to go back to your T25 workout.  The key here is you now have options that help YOU achieve YOUR goals.  We can continually tweak and change your plan so that you do not lose momentum and drive. We don’t want you getting bored and we want YOU to get the results you’re after.

    Each fitness program through BOD has the calendar of workouts and what to do when.  Each program has a nutrition guide you can download and tracking sheets!! This is not about just starting and completing 1 program, it is about moving through each stage of your journey and entering into a lifestyle of proper nutrition and fitness.

    The most important part of this whole thing is the SUPPORT!  Sure, anyone can just buy a program, but where you see most people getting results is when they have a community of support around them helping them to get results! That is where the magic truly happens!

    I used to go to the gym and do a machine for 25 minutes and then wander around ending up doing a few weight machines and crunches.  It took so much time to drive there and I had no clue what I was doing.  The time, money and frustration it caused me is the main reason this smart fitness has turned my life around.  I don’t have to come up with anything new, I simply follow the plan and it works!!!  No more fad diets, I drink my superfoods daily and push play, I love it!!!!

    So this year is YOUR year!  If you are like me and you need structure, support, guidance and accountability then I can tell you this will work.  

    YOU are invited and I know this can change your life like it has mine!

    I am starting our “Renew and Refocus” Group that will be run through the Beachbody Challenge Tracker App.  You will set realistic and achievable goals, log your workouts, your nutrition and Shakeology daily through our app based program and I will be there 24/7 to provide support, accountability, guidance, recipes and meal planning to make this a lasting lifestyle change. 

    all access, beachbody on demand, beachbody, fitmom, fit mom, 2017, make a change, goals 2017, life change, make a difference, not a diet, healthy choices, get in shape

  • Superfood Dessert Bites – Cheating Healthy!

    Superfood Dessert Bites

    So, it’s in the evening, and you’ve already eaten dinner…  You had a super busy day, finally got the kids to bed, just did the laundry, still doing laundry, with a hamper full of even more laundry.  You need to go to sleep, but that ain’t going to happen, cause mama’s got a sweet tooth and needs something now.  You get into the kitchen, notice you need to do the rest of the dishes….. so what do you do?!!

    A.  Go crazy on chocolate chips, your kid’s snacks, or a multitude of other things you could eat.

    B.  Wine…..the entire bottle!!!

    C.  Superfood Dessert Bites!!!!!!!  🙂

    Superfood Dessert Bites Recipe

    This is about as easy as it gets.  (*Note, I am showing the recipe to fill an entire tin of mini cupcakes.  I fill each tin slot about half full.)

    • Chocolate Vegan Shakeology Scoop (3)
    • Melted 1/4 Cup of Coconut Oil (3)
    • Organic Peanut Butter Creamy (as much as you’d like to place on top.  I do about 1/2 a teaspoon per bite.)
    • Freeze for approximately 20 minutes or until hard.
    • Add peanut butter and then leave in freezer.
    • Remove from freezer when going crazy!  Eat one or two and you will feel 1 million times better and not eat a bunch of junk!!  😉

    About to freeze these babies for 20 minutes and then add peanut butter on top to freeze again.

    superfood dessert bites, healthy treats, healthy snacks, healthy dessert, healthy dessert recipe, 21 day fix, 21 day fix dessert, 21 day fix extreme dessert
    These little superfood dessert bites are about as good as it gets to curb the sweet tooth craziness.  I really try to go to these before anything else and they can be a lifesaver.  Sometimes I will add a little bit of organic cacao powder  into the mix.  This gives it a little more of a natural chocolate flavor, which I love.  The bonus, my family loves them!  They count for a couple teaspoons on our 21 day meal plan. 3 words..#boom #shaka #laka✌?️

  • Weighted Sumo Squats – 21 Day Fix Extreme

    Weighted Sumo Squats for the Win!

    Day 8 // Done. Weighted Sumo Squats. Love the feeling of this move because of the turned-out-toe position. Talk about an inner thigh reconstructor! Operation Get Fit is more of a: Get my booty off the back of my thighs! ?  21 Day Fix Extreme is no joke!

    Working our legs burns a ton of calories because they are such large muscles. Just don’t mind me if you see me hobbling around town..they don’t call it an Extreme workout for nothing !

    I’m feeling good but still not exactly where I thought I’d be on day 8. You know that feeling of progress that feels so good? Yeah, well I’m still in the “feeling completely out of shape” stage! The cool thing is, I’ve been here before. I know that if I just fall in love with the process, my results will come. Cheers to all us girls that push past our limits and keep our eyes on the prize!

    If you want to know more about the containers, watch the last video on this blog post!! Autumn, the creator of 21 Day Fix Extreme, talks about the containers.  Great video to watch.   Click Here for video!

    So, go do some weighted sumo squats and let me know how you feel.  Please contact me if you have any questions!

  • 21 Days, to Become the New You!!

    21 Days to transform and make you a New You!!!

    Photobombed by the hubs ?? as I get prepped for the week with our simple containers.  Getting ready for the next 21 Days!

    I love being told how many to eat a day and what foods I get to choose from. ‪#‎mombrain‬ ‪#‎colorcoded‬. I also love the feeling of having energy and being strong ??. Two of the best things ever.  Well, that and being able to walk into your closet and put everything you own on, and it FITS!

    I didn’t always have these feelings though. Just a few years ago, I was lost in what to eat and what workouts worked best for me. Crash diets were my jam. It was a terrible place for me. Since then, I’ve found the “secret” to fit mom SUCCESS and I can’t hide it. The fire in my soul to help other women find what works for them is lit. ? I want you to have everything you’ve wanted with your health and fitness goals and the time is now!! Not in September when the kids go back to school.

    Watch this quick video to get an idea of what we’d be doing!

    I love the quote, “To have something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.” This relates so perfect to fitness and nutrition for me.

    If you are tired (literally) and sick of not feeling good in your clothes or out of your clothes for that matter, please join us.

    Here’s my list of favorites that I think you’ll love too:

    ? It’s 21 Days!!!

    ? You do it all in the privacy of your own home

    ? You have a full workout schedule and nutrition guide with those cute color-coded containers for portion

    One meal a day is taken care of for you and you get to keep your fitness program forever

    It’s $5 bucks a day to change the whole course of your confidence for Summer weather

    ? You get me as your coach and BONUS a private group of ladies who motivate and encourage each other. (a private online group)?

    ??  You can still have treats but in the proper portion 😉

    Here’s another video that really gets a bit more in depth about the containers by Autumn Calabrese, the creator of the 21 Day Fix:

  • 22 Minute Hard Corps Test Group is Getting Serious!

    22 Minute Hard Corps Update

    22 Minute Hard Corps is now into week 4 for my husband Matt!  I am going to have him tell you all about it!

    “Wow….all I can say is WOW!!!  22 Minute Hard Corps has to be the best workout program I have ever done.  I have done Body Beast, P90X, Insanity, T25, 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, P90X2 and P90X3.  I have done half of Hammer and Chisel, got interrupted when I was rudely invited to do this test group, by corporate Beachbody!!  So here I am.  Already through an entire three weeks and I cannot believe how much my body has changed!

    I am already down 13lbs and down over 7.5 inches…..most of the loss is in my waist and chest…my two hardest areas to tone.  I have never had good definition in my abs and they are on there way to be the best I’ve ever had…..and it’s only been three weeks!!  This is an eight week program!  It is difficult though.  There are awesome modifications, so no worries there, but it is fast pace.  Tony Horton, the man, really takes this workout program to an entirely new level!!  He makes 22 Minute Hard Corps the extreme.  If you are already in shape….this will challenge you.

     21 day fix, 21 day fix extreme, 21dayfix, 21dayfixextreme, 22 minute hard corps, 22 minute hard corps test group, 22 minute workout, 22minutehardcorps, alcohol, Beachbody, body beast, get some, getsome, gluten-free, Hammer and Chisel, orgain, p90x, p90x2, p90x3, Recharge, sugar, t25, tony horton, Tony Horton 22 minute hard corps, Tony Horton new workout, vega, vegan protein shake

    I would say I started this program in decent shape, or so I thought.  As soon as I began, I knew I was going to have to dig deeper than ever before.  I thought I could jump right through 22 minutes!  I mean common….it is only 22 minutes!!  Nope, it is awesome.  Here is a little example of one of the moves.  I could probably do 3 or 4 of these at the beginning, now I can do over 20!!

    This last week, my wife had to go through a 3rd surgery, the 3rd in the last 3 months!  It has been a challenging time.  The thing I always forget is that when you are doing a full body, cardio, circuit style training, you not only gain muscle, but you gain so much energy!  Energy has just gone out the roof.  I have had so much fun playing with my kids at night…we will rough house for up to 3 hours after dinner!  I used to be gassed after an hour!  22 Minute Hard Corps is really changing my life.  I am feeling so amazing!

    I also did have a slight setback…but I didn’t let that get in my way.

    22 Minute Hard Corps Nutrition

    This is the part that I needed a lot of work on.  Prior to 22 Minute Hard Corps I had been trying to bulk.  At the beginning of 2015 I was doing Body Beast.  21 day fix, 21 day fix extreme, 21dayfix, 21dayfixextreme, 22 minute hard corps, 22 minute hard corps test group, 22 minute workout, 22minutehardcorps, alcohol, Beachbody, body beast, get some, getsome, gluten-free, Hammer and Chisel, orgain, p90x, p90x2, p90x3, Recharge, sugar, t25, tony horton, Tony Horton 22 minute hard corps, Tony Horton new workout, vega, vegan protein shake I am a tall 6’7″ man.  Getting meat on my bones has not been easy, getting fat is.  I can gain weight quickly.  I decided to really work on it all of 2015.  I did one full round of Body Beast, then almost all the way through a second round.  After that I began doing a lot of circuit training with heavier weights.  This meant one main thing.  Food and lots of it!  Definitely mostly healthy but definitely not perfect.  I was averaging between 3500-4500 calories a day.

    With 22 Minute Hard Corps I have lowered my calorie count to around 2400-2500 per day.  I am having a ratio of 1:1 protein to my weight, higher fat and middle of the road carbohydrates.  I have Shakeology (learn more about it here) once a day, sometimes twice depending on how busy I am.  I really do mix macros and 21 Day Fix food containers.  It is a perfect balance.  The nutrition is so very important to me.  I am having only natural sugars through some fresh fruit and occasional dry fruit.  I am not drinking alcohol right now.  There comes a point when you just want to see what your body is capable of and how it will react.  I am trying to eat six meals a day.  I try to keep my yellow containers to no later than 4:00PM.

    This is also the part that I have to have the most discipline with.  Late night snacking has always been an issue for me.  Through this time I will only have Recharge (learn more about it here), an amazing Beachbody supplement or a Vegan protein shake.  I do have whey protein as well, but very minimally.  I use both Vega and Orgain protein powders.  I tend to stay away from animal products because I am having a decent amount of meat.  I always try to have greens with my meat, the fiber will help with digestion.  I also have a staple kale dish I have almost everyday.  I am continually tweaking it.

    22 Minute Hard Corps Continues

    I can’t wait for Stacy to join me.  I know she would be doing far better than me at this point.  Her crazy physical craziness, (you can read about it here, and here) have really taken a tole on her and I can’t wait for her to be back at it!  I need my partner keeping me focused!  I have one of the workouts down fully.  I can do every move all the way through and am now cutting out some of the rest times….don’t worry, their not very long!  I still modify pull ups and chin ups, since I still can only do a few.  It is fun to see the progression!  It is amazing to be in a challenge group, where everyone posts and we are all a team, focused on getting results!

  • The Scale and How Inflammation Affects It!

    Inflammation vs. Scale

    The scale and inflammation are a tough combo.  It’s week two of our current challenge group and I posted this here as well as in the group to encourage. We want results so fast and our bodies don’t work that way!!! I also wanted to give you a sneak peek of what it looks like to be in one of our groups. We share confessions, struggles, successes, recipes and everything in between. Here goes:

    {HELP! WHY ISN’T THE SCALE MOVING?!}

    I feel like this post was important for us today.
    The most likely reason your number on the scale crept up is inflammation. When you work out, it causes little tears in your muscle fibers. This is called microtrauma and it’s why you feel sore after a workout. On the upside, your body heals these little tears, making the fibers tougher than they originally were. That’s how you become stronger and more fit. It’s part of a process called adaptation. It’s a GOOD thing!

    To make these repairs, your body uses its standard healing process, including the inflammation phase. When you incur injury, including microtrauma, your body releases various substances generally known as inflammatory mediators that swarm the area and perform triage, bringing in healing white blood cells and opening up blood vessels to flush out debris and toxins. There’s so much going on that the area swells up, or inflames.
    The fluid required for inflammatory response obviously weighs something ***and that might show up on the scale.*** When inflammation is allowed to occur in a healthy way, it’s temporary.
    There are a couple situations in which you might actually be putting on fat. The first one would be that you’re not following a proper diet. Yes, exercise burns calories, but it also increases release of ghrelin, a hormone that promotes hunger. So if you’re not paying attention, you’ll probably eat more.
    Even if you are eating at a deficit, poor food choices can cause all kinds of issues, usually centered on hormonal imbalances that cause your body to hold onto fat. This is why we love adding Shakeology into the mix, it really helps with cravings and keeps one meal a day in perfect balance.  Also, think about the containers from the 21 Day Fix.  They are super easy to use and the nutrition guide really does balance your daily diet.  So, do NOT be afraid to open that nutrition guide that came with your package. It is KEY!!!!!!
