New Year STRONG with Core De Force
Core De Force Meal Plan & Week 4 Update
Core De Force Week 4 Meal Plan is going down today. Failing to plan is like planning to fail. When I first heard that phrase I thought it was crazy. Like seriously…. who plans out there food every week? I don’t have time for that and seriously, who actually eats what they plan out? That was my thinking 4 years ago, and I quickly realized after failing over and over at my nutrition that there was truth to meal planning and that I needed to embrace it. Do I always eat exactly what is on the plan?? NOT AT ALL! But at least I have a plan, I have food in the house and I am empowered and set up for success. So it’s Sunday and I call this my planning day. I am sitting here with the Core De Force nutrition guide, my blank meal plan template I created on a spreadsheet, and my grocery list so that I can get my game plan together for the 4th week of Core De Force.
After 4 years of clean eating and exercising I have found my perfect combination. I have done everything from the The South Beach Diet, The Fat Flush Diet, Eat Right For your Blood Type Diet, 21 Day Fix, Fix Extreme, 3 day refresh (<<btw, you would love this one) and following a Gluten-free diet. I have found that my body personally responds to food very differently. I get bloated with dairy and grains, I get mentally foggy and almost an instant headache with refined sugars. If I eat paleo, stay away from dairy, gluten, and sugars that are artificial I feel my best. No bloating, no mood swings, no headaches and improved muscle definition and tone.
So here is my “ideal” lifestyle ( even though I love raw cheddar, brie and Elleno’s Greek Yogurt)
- Dairy free
- Gluten Free
- No artificial sugars at all
- No legumes
- Paleo lifestyle
I can share with you the difference is for sure in the results too:
I just don’t have those crazy crashes in my energy level like I did before. I am not sluggish, I don’t have headaches unless my alignment is out of place, my skin is clearer and I’m just healthier and happier all around.The picture on the far left is from June when I was able to start working out again post surgeries. You can search my blog for details on that fiasco. The one on the far right is after completing 21 Day Fix Extreme, 8 weeks of Hammer and Chisel and 3 weeks of Core De Force. I can really see my definition showing up. I know I’m already fit but I feel healthy, powerful and STRONG which is really what I’m after. Plus I really love that Core De Force is so focused on your core and that you do not need any weights at all. It is just the perfect Hashtag Girlboss workout. I wear my weighted gloves and I can do it in my own home. No one cares how my hair looks. Half the time I am grunting and punching and looking completely ridiculous.
*Week 4 Core De Force & Paleo/Whole30 eating*
So let’s also talk nutrition. I am following the Core De Force meal plan. I also really do modify and I don’t always get in the yellows. I eat maybe 1 per day and I eat more good fats because I follow the Paleo lifestyle. That is what my body responds to the best. Here is my week 4 meal plan:
I have snacks typically in the afternoon between lunch and dinner and then after dinner I usually need a snack. I do make my last meal of the day at least 3 hours before bed. I do not have any kind of carbohydrate after dinner unless it’s the occasional bowl of air-popped popcorn with coconut butter. Shhhhh 😉
My latest go to snack has been:
-1 honeycrisp apple
-handful of chopped almonds
-sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice
-Microwave for 45 seconds and it’s warm and soft. So good!!!
If you want to start soon, it is super easy to do that. Just rock it out with your ipad, iphone or computer with Beachbody On Demand. If you don’t have it, ask me how. It’s super easy!! You can stream your workouts anywhere there is wifi or download 7 workouts to your library to do with no wifi connection.
Last week of Core De Force, but I’m going to continue on with month 2 because I love it that much!!!!
Do you want to give Core De Force a TRY? Do you need a little ACCOUNTABILITY? I am kicking off my Health Bet Challenge Jan. 9th, but could get you a HEAD START!!! Complete the Application BELOW and I will contact you within 24 hours to get MORE details!Fill out my online form.

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!
[arve url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAPZwer8t9E” align=”center”/]
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.
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.
What is the cost of the All-Access Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack & Membership?

- The Annual All Access Beachbody On Demand Membership is $99.95 and that does not include Shakeology & the portion containers.

Fight Your Way To Fitness! Core De Force Is Where It’s At!!!
Core De Force!!!
I am pumped UP to announce that Beachbody has a brand new home fitness program that launched this week!!! Joel & Jericho (who you may know from Les Mills Combat and PUMP) created this total body transformation program that will rock your world. You need zero equipment and every move is firing your core!! I love that all you need is your own bodyweight to get a killer workout! It also includes the Beachbody On Demand, which gives you the option to stream from any device. If you travel for work, you can get it done from your hotel room. Core De Force is an MMA inspired program which includes 3 minute “rounds” where you will get boxing, kickboxing and Muay Thai, knee-elbow combinations, body weight training and cardio spikes that will help you lose belly fat and SHRED your body. I love that it’s broken up like this so you can go hard for 3 minutes at a time, and before you know it the workout is over!! You will SWEAT, you will be SORE and you will get RESULTS! Check out all the details here if you are ready to change up your workout, break a plateau, get started with your transformation or hold yourself accountable over the Holidays. We are going to be hosting a private Test Group for people who are ready to join me in this 30 day program!
Who is Core De Force For?
Core De Force is for EVERYONE. Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced level in your fitness, you can do this workout. The workouts are only 30-45 minutes, so it’s the perfect amount of time!!! This program has a modifier so you can go at your own pace. You will enjoy the challenge of taking the intensity higher to improve your cardio strength, speed and endurance. Each MMA inspired workout has an optional move breakdown to help you get familiar with the combinations. Core De Force also focuses on rotational moves which means you will work your core from 360 degrees every time you hit play. That is going to be awesome for all of us who really want to tone that trouble area (hello mommy belly).
How Can I Get Involved In My Support & Accountability Group?
So now, here is the MOST important part. How do you REALLY succeed at this program?? Well, anyone can go out there and buy the Core De Force Challenge Pack and do the workouts. Unfortunately I have seen many times where someone will purchase a program with the best of intentions and before they know it, the workout is sitting on their shelf collecting dust and making excuses for why they have no time or it isn’t the right timing. So don’t let this be another program that you have good intentions with! It’s time to take charge of your fitness and nutrition and get involved in a group of empowered people ready for a change just like you are!!!! The private online community of support that is going to help you start and complete the program and get the RESULTS that you want, just might be the BEST part! Better yet, we are going to help you create a Holiday plan that is going to give you the flexibility to enjoy the holiday things you want to eat but still get results. Yes, you can enjoy a healthy lifestyle!!!!
Do you want to join??? Here are the requirements and how to get started:
In my Test Group I am going to be requiring that everyone participate for the entire 30 days of the program, starting on November 14th! Each participant must have ME as their assigned coach. You cannot already be working with another coach or be a coach yourself.You must commit to both the fitness program and Shakeology to join the group. You will be getting everything you need for this group when you sign up with me.You must be willing to participate daily in the closed online group. I will have you log your workouts in our amazing Challenge Tracker App right on your phone and also in the Private Facebook group (choose where you like to log best). You’ll be logging your daily food and fitness activity and others will be too!!! It will provide you with tools, tips and recipes to help you get to your goals.You must be willing to give it your all! Change is not always easy, but it is totally worth it.
How Much Does It Cost?
Core De Force has a variety of options. The one that I recommend the most is the Core De Force Challenge Pack because it comes with everything you need to be successful with this program. It comes with the entire Core De Force workout program, nutrition guide, program manual, Shakeology, access to ME as your coach, discounted price and shipping, plus it gets you into my Test Group where I will be giving you a 5 Day Meal Guide to help you get started right; giving you recipes, tips, and daily accountability so that this program does not become another dust collector on your shelf.
The >>Challenge Pack<< is $140 on Sale starting October 31st through November 2016.
There will never ever be a perfect time to start your fitness and health transformation. You literally just have to take that leap of faith, bite the bullet and go for it. If you do not try, how will you ever know if you can succeed? This just might be that ONE thing where everything comes together and just finally makes sense to you and your lifestyle. That’s what’s happened for me and why I’m so passionate about sharing it. Will YOU take the leap? I sure hope so!!!! *APPLY HERE*

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!

Work In Progress! Progress Photos After Surgery
Work in Progress
I took these photos today and I realized I looked better 10 months post (2nd) baby then I do now, a definite work in progress. Gosh darn it. Now, I am not on this journey to be perfect. NOT AT ALL! It is about me being the best version of ME. Competing with myself. Being that example to our kids that it’s about feeing good in our bodies and understanding limits and nutrition. Training my brain in the good habits, not the bad cycles I used to live in.
I’ve realized if I don’t have a plan and if I don’t push out of my comfort zones, my old late night eating and binge habits come back. They creep in. I have been known to wallow in a little self pity. I’ve let the past hangups affect the present. Not forgiving myself or staying too long in that defeat. Not any more. Action builds confidence so I will put my head down and go. #shutupnegativeselftalk
Now this will require some commitment. I’ve lost results and strength from the surgeries but through accountability from the group and some hard work, I know I can gain it back, plus some. ? No matter where any of us are at, we are a work in progress! But with a group of women like us, we will hit results like never before! I am going to be joining my husband in his official Corporate Beachbody Test Group with 22 Minute Hard Corps (read more about it here)! I’m super excited about it, as his results so far have been awesome! I want to tell everyone all about, as it is being released March 1st and we will be holding a test group March 21st to take people through it!
Who wants to say goodbye to some bad habits and push with me? Who wants to welcome Spring Break with open arms? We start the “Rock Your Results” Challenge on 2/15. Message me or comment if you are up for a challenge! It includes:
~21-60 day workout schedule all laid out and accessed from any device
~one superfoods meal a day you don’t have to plan or prep (that tastes delicious)
~support from a group of like-minded women all trying to learn and grow
~full nutrition guide with portion control containers
~one on one support from me
We are all a work in progress! This is my before accountability post! We have 6 weeks until the cruise and I want my after photo to represent my diligence. That after photo is what motivated me after baby and STILL does. The time is NOW??

❤❤ FIT MISSION BY VALENTINE’S DAY ❤❤
Fit mission in full effect! Today I was reflecting on all the things us ladies can wish we had (me included). We aren’t trying to be perfect by any means, but feel comfortable in our own skin! Here’s a few things I am working on, you can take from this list or put your own! (I know we are all at different stages of our journey!)
- Rounder booty (or a booty at all)
- Thigh gap
- H.S. Weight
- Flat tummy (with less loose baby love skin)
- To look good nakey
- More confidence
- More time
- No dimples and cellulite
The list goes on…
Even if we can’t have those things exactly how we want them, the one thing I know to be true is we can get better! This fit mission is about this and that in itself is a beautiful thing. Practice does make perfect, goals can be reached! Do I wish I could get to my H.S. weight? Yes! But does that make or break the progress I’ve made? NO! 140 lbs is PERFECT for me because that’s what my body likes naturally. There was a time I couldn’t get under 150 to save my life. I skimped, starved, worked out twice a day, felt so lost with fitness AND nutrition. It was unnerving and I was hurting myself mentally and physically.
Not anymore thanks to the nutrition and programs I’ve found. Now I’m right where I need to be.
I had to trust the process and invest for the long haul and boy it’s paid off. Sanity is a good thing 😉
What are you going to think when you look back on 2016 photos? Will you know you are doing everything you can to treat your body right or will it be another year on be books that you stayed the same? My joy is to show others what’s worked for me so you too can know you’re right where you need to be!
Join me for a Hot ?by Valentine’s Day Challenge ❤ including:
?A full meal guide with recipes
?30 minute workouts done on your schedule
?support the entire time from women wanting all the same things as you
?fun mini challenges within the group for prizes to be won
?One nutrient dense meal you don’t have to plan or prep
We start soon-Jan.18th! You’ll be joining me and thousands of other people doing the 366 day Shakeology challenge. Most people order chocolate first so the FIRST person to message me with the hashtag #366er and purchases their pack gets two free Tropical Strawberry meals to try ????Email me at [email protected] or comment below!

22 Minute Hard Corps – #Getsome
22 Minute Hard Corps Test Group
I am so excited that my husband, Matt Rody, was invited into the 22 Minute Hard Corps test group! He took all his photos, did a fit test to see where he’s at, we did a bunch of meal prep and kicked it off today, January 4th, 2016! He is committed and seeing his commitment is pushing me! We are both focused and doing our part to really spread the joy of health with everyone around us! Here is what he had to say:
“Well, it’s almost here! I am so incredibly humbled and so honored to be in the official test group for 22 Minute Hard Corps. The people in this group are much more qualified than me, so I will be pushing myself harder than ever before!
As I move forward on this amazing journey, I would love to bring you along with me. I’ve never been perfect, I’ve never tried to be. But I know I have to work hard to be the best husband, father, friend, son, brother, business partner and whatever other shoes I am called to fill.
I won’t try to pretend I don’t yo-yo on the scale a bit, but I have found a very sustainable place in my health and nutrition. I always have energy to throw my kids around and chase them for hours. That’s why I did this. That’s why it’s stuck for almost 4 years now.
So join me. I have a group starting later this month and I want you to be apart of it. I am not a gym person, I hate crowds! So comment below and let me know when you want to make a real change! #getsome #underconstruction”
We are going to be doing a challenge starting on January 18th. He is going to do a men’s group, I am going to do a women’s. We would love to have you join us! If you’re married, there is no better gift for your family than your health and energy that goes along with it! Let us know and we would be happy to have you join us! If you are looking to get 22 Minute Hard Corps, feel free to comment below or email me at [email protected] and we will get you on the waiting list. It doesn’t ship till sometime in March.

Fitness Challenge to be that Fit Mom throughout the Holidays!
*****I am looking for 10 women who have 10-30 LBS to lose and be part of our fitness challenge.*****
The Holidays are here and I believe we can not only show our children moderation during this time but also get a head start on 2016 with some determination in our minds. We have Thanksgiving, turkey, stuffing, jello, pie, snacks, and most of us have multiple parties to go to. Then only less than 30 days later is Christmas Eve and Christmas Day! It is crazy how much food and junk we consume in just these two holidays. Then, to top it all off we have New Years! Oh and I forgot to mention the dreaded stockings….where all things bad for you reside! Trying to be a good example for our kids is soooo hard to do! Joining a fitness challenge could be the best thing you could do for yourself and your family!
Do you want to feel comfortable in your own skin and confident every time you get dressed? I am looking for women who are serious about making changes in their eating and fitness. Not just hoping to change but to really want to put in the daily habits to change. This fitness challenge is specifically catered to women who are short on time, need quick results and a support system with other women shooting for the same goals. It’s all laid out for you with a calendar and meal guide.
It is working so very well for my current challengers that I want to do another group. Their transformations (check out one here) are absolutely awesome, whether it be in inches around the waist or weight. What would your ideal number be? Start imagining your new self now!!!
Come join our fitness challenge! Email me at [email protected]
