  • 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.

    Since then, my amazing team has achieved Premier and ranked #207 out of 450,00 coaches. We are a team who shines our light often and bright to help others find what we have found. There is nothing like getting paid to get and STAY healthy and fit as we invite others along the ride with us. I cannot wait to continue this journey with even more wonderful people from around the globe!

  • 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.

    [June: Pre-workouts]                                                                            [November: After Core De Force]

    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:

     

    core de force mom

    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!!!!

    That’s a lot to choose from, right? So what do I suggest?

    The 21 Day Fix Meal Prep Pack is a GREAT deal!! It will bundle together a large light blue container (for holding salads, etc), color coded pre-portioned containers, a 21 Day Fix Tote, and the FIXATE cookbook. This is PERFECT for some variety in your diet and it is at a great bargain!

    If you are an Autumn Calabrese fan and are ready for an extreme program, then DEFINITELY pick up The Master’s Hammer and Chisel — it will sculpt and tone your body in ways you never thought possible!

  • 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*

     

  • Shine On!!

    Shine

    The definition of SHINE:
    (of the sun or another source of light) give out a bright light.?
    emit light, beam, radiate, gleam, glow, glint, glimmer, sparkle, twinkle, glitter, glisten, shimmer….

    When I first started my journey, I knew I would need a word to represent my intentions and my team. After a few months of pondering, it finally hit me early one morning. Shine, yes! The perfect word to explain how this new healthy lifestyle felt. For too long I was lost in the darkness with my health and it felt, well, hopeless. Now that I have the answer and keep pushing for and creating those daily priorities of healthy habits, I feel lighter and brighter.

    I believe when you first take care of your spiritual and physical health, everything else is better. It is one of the most important things you can do for yourself AND your loved ones. As mom’s, we can forget to do this so that’s why I’m SO darn passionate about helping other women find their fitness!!

    So, as I get ready to do my 30 minute home workout today before the kids are up, I thank God that I have a body that can move and a team of women who support each other. Life is short and we all want to live it well! ?  Tank top cred goes to my personal shopper: Matt Rody ?#TeamShine #blessedlife

  • Energy!!! Summer Strong Fitness Challenge

    Summer Strong

    The feeling of having energy ?and being strong??. Two of the best feelings ever! Well, and being able to walk into your closet and wear everything you own with the greatest of confidence. I didn’t always used to have them. I was lost in what to eat and what workouts worked best for me. Now I have a fire in my soul to help other women find what works for them. I want you to have everything you’ve wanted with your health and fitness goals. There’s no reason not to wait. Start taking care of yourself sooner than later. ?

    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.

    If you are tired (literally) and sick of not feeling good in clothes or out of clothes for that matter, you should join me! Starting April 18th, a group of us are hitting it hard. We are getting “Summer Strong.”

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

    ?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 all check in on each other daily (private online group)

    Do something new and feel the positive momentum that proceeds giving you the energy and strength you know you desire. I only have room for 3 more girls! Email me at stacyrodyfitness@gmail.com or drop you email below. Let’s do this! ‪#‎summerstrong‬

  • Daily Routine – Don’t Skip It!

    Daily Routine

    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!

     

  • Transformation Tuesday from Quebec!

    TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY!

    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!
