  • 3 Day Refresh and a Favorite Recipe

    3 Day Refresh

    My “team-player” of a husband and I just finished up our 3 Day Refresh challenge and I wanted to fill YOU in on all of it!  If you’ve never heard of it, it’s a 3 day cleanse to reboot your system, pave the way for some new healthy habits, try new food combinations and just let your body REST.  There are a lot of healthy fats and proteins incorporated so you feel satiated and full most of the time.  Most 😉

    Here’s the deal.  I like to eat.  I enjoy food.  You’ll never hear me say I forgot to eat or catch me not thinking about my next meal.  It’s who I am.  Luckily, I’ve learned how to eat CLEAN with portion control thanks to my fit tribe and favorite trainers.  I have taught myself to enjoy kale, salads and use way less condiments and cheese.

    So, to do a three day cleanse like this is not my STYLE.  I come from a background of binging on sugar, snacking too late at night, fast food a few times a week and using food to cover up what I was really feeling.  I used it to cope. 

    I know that is NOT healthy but it’s what I fall back on most when I lose my footing on my journey. Once in awhile, I stop…re-evaluate things, take a break and just say “no” for a bit.

    The highlights:

    Matt lost 9 lbs and 5 inches around his midsection!!

    I didn’t lose weight but an inch off my waist and feel lighter, TIGHTER 💪🏻and more energized!  On our team we focus on Non-Scale Victories so I’m NOT sad one bit!  

    In the past when I’ve completed this 3 day cleanse, I’ve lost up to 5 lbs!  3-5 lbs is normal for most women to lose.

    We loved the nine different dinner options and veggie combinations.  I was REALLY happy with the fruit allowance, too.  We did it over the weekend so it was nice to see how much self-control we truly possessed when we put our mind to something.  

    Also, lots of walking and sleep!  Hence the name of the 3 day cleanse { REFRESH } Our little date walks were nice since the kids were sleeping over with Grandma and Grandpa.  You will want to do yoga, light exercise and/or walking only.  On 900 calories, strenuous workouts would make you feel really light headed and weak.

    This is PERFECT for you if you need a break from all the toxins and craziness of life.  If you are headed on vacay or just coming home and need to kick start your bod! It’s also good to have something spelled out for you so you don’t have to think or map it out yourself!

    Before I go, I’d love to SHARE the dinner I ate all three nights and still have a few times a week.

  • A Mom’s Journey – Life Transformation

    My Journey

    This is my journey.  In the picture on the left, I felt trapped in my own body. Because I didn’t struggle with my weight much growing up, my 20’s were a hard spot. I couldn’t eat what I wanted anymore and keep the weight off. It was so HARD for me to lose weight. I swear, I would have given my right arm to drop JUST 5 lbs. I had no idea how to eat “clean”, I only knew crash diets or extreme cleanses. You know, I tried so many different things that ended up hurting me. Can you relate?  I thought every meal needed to taste perfect and literally be covered in cheese. I would sometimes eat fast food twice a day and often leave the house at 8 p.m. to go buy ice cream, chocolate or sour patch kids.  Finally, I came to the fact, I knew there was something better for me and I was on the hunt! I knew I could feel alive inside and happy with my body. I believed it!

    The search finally led me to a community of people who had found what I wanted. They found balance and simplicity. They found a system that was normal and easy and totally doable for someone like me. A busy mom of two who just needed a plan.🙋🏼 I needed to take care of myself for my family and find a way to teach healthy habits to my kids. I was so happy and prayed it would work for me!! Well, it did!

    I found daily superfoods/vitamins that replaced a meal or snack. I found friends who needed to do stuff at home while their kids napped but we could still check in online for support. I found short (freaking awesome) workouts that get it done and transform bodies. I found my light. The girl that I had been searching for could finally come to life. The weight came off, the habits were formed. I figured out how to eat so that I felt good for my workouts and my body would respond in a positive way.

    The journey continues and I now get to help others “find” what they are looking for. If you at all feel lost or frustrated…please reach out. I can promise you the small investment you’ll make to start your positive journey will be the best money you’ve ever spent!!! It’s dollars a day for HUGE gains. I’ve never seen anything quite like this and I’ll never stop spreading the word on how awesome it is!!! Love yourself and your family enough to make this change❤️Our next challenge is Sept. 5th!

    transformation tuesday, jenn a anderson, mom, motivation, life change, lose weight, weight loss.

    “4th round in the books!!!! Honestly this one is a little emotional for me! I CANNOT believe that’s me in my before pic! I wanted to keep wearing the same clothes to show the difference and now my shirt is baggy!!!!!!! UNREAL! Listen, I DID NOT want to start this program! I thought I would fail! Thought I was “happy” eating whatever and not subscribing to “skinny culture”. I still don’t subscribe to that…however I had no idea how bad I felt. How much of my health was being compromised! I feel like my real self is being restored everyday! SO THANKFUL! If you’re at all curious about joining me, DON’T WAIT!!! Seriously, you won’t regret it!” ~Jenn A. Anderson
