Results (and Nickels) are POURING in!

If I had a nickel for every person I hear from who says that doing the 21 Day Fix is what FINALLY worked…


well…I’d have a whole lotta nickels!


In January, Nancy lost 10.4 pounds and 9 inches and Jenny lost 11 pounds and 3 inches! Among others!

Last week alone, Fawn lost 5 pounds and 3.5 inches!!! In one week people!

UPDATE: And take a look at Michelle’s results after almost 3 full rounds of the 21 Day Fix & Shakeology.



And check out Ashley’s results:


Ashley has completed 3 rounds of The 21 Day Fix.
She has lost 22 pounds and about 18 inches! And she has gained a BIG beautiful smile and a TON of self-confidence!

And some fellow coaches and I are joining our challengers this month with the NEW 21 Day Fix Extreme and getting some amazing results with it!

Kristin is a week ahead of me, but check out her 2 week results.


In just 2 weeks she’s down 6.4 pounds and 6 inches! And I seriously can’t WAIT to see how she finishes!

In one week of dialed-in nutrition and 30 minute workouts I was able to drop 3 pounds and 1.5 inches!



This program WORKS!!! You know what else works? Challenge Groups.

Here is what Jennifer says: “Feeling stronger (mentally) everyday. I chose to eat a salad with balsamic vinegar instead of the pancakes that my kids wanted last night for dinner. And I’m getting my workout in everyday even when I am exhausted from getting up with a teething 10 month old . Loving this program and the motivation from all of you ladies!”

“I love your positivity. I wish I could print out all your posts and hang them on my wall! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!”


In our private group on Facebook, we’ll support each other and keep each other accountable. I’ll share daily tips, recipes and motivation and be available to help you 24/7. Are you going to get that kind of support in the gym? Nah…don’t think so.

How to Get Kids to Eat Their Veggies!

This idea is really going to blow your mind! I mean…it’s just so BIG and ingenious, I can’t wait to share it with you…


If there is one thing that I’ve learned in my 15 years as a parent and another 7 years as an educator…kids are opportunists! And we as parents can use that to our advantage!

My kids will generally eat veggies when they are cooked and put on their plates for dinner. It can take some doing, and some kids are more receptive than others, but we have some sorta veggie at most every dinner. And usually something GREEN at that! My mom was a firm believer that every dinner plate needed something green on it! Even if that meant double (or TRIPLE) veggies, because she had already cooked carrots and cauliflower! If she looked down at the plate and didn’t see something green…she’d whip up a salad and sleep better at night! 😉

I guess that stuck. Because I kinda feel the same way. My body needs GREEN veggies!

My kids don’t feel that way…yet! But we’re working on it. Every day.

Raw veggies are something that most of my kids tend shy away from, usually. I do have one child who will eat most any veggie: cooked, raw, red, green, etc. She’s my salad eater. If I make myself a salad, she wants one too. Of course she wants hers slathered in ranch dressing, but that’s an issue for another day.

So in my challenge group the other day, I challenged my participants to set out some healthy snacks, like fruits and veggies, and just make them available to their kids without even suggesting they eat it. I decided to catch my project on hidden camera, and my kids played RIGHT into it! When they saw this video later, they all laughed and applauded my sneakiness! Take a look:

The bottom line is that if we make healthy foods available, easy to access, kids WILL go for it! Maybe not every time, but I believe over time you’ll see them grabbing foods you thought they might never eat on their own. No need to force or persuade. Just put them on your counter and see what happens. A good time for this is after school. Kids come home starving and start looking for quick snacks to stuff in their face. If there’s food RIGHT there, that they don’t have to search for, or prepare…chances are good that they’ll take the easy opportunity!

TRY it! 🙂

Clean Eating Chicken Salad

Best. Lunch. Ever.

My husband was telling me about his lunch out the other day and it got me craving chicken salad!

I pulled out my 21 Day Fix containers and got to work.


What I ended up with, was heaven in a bowl! I might eat this every day for the rest of my life!


  • shredded chicken breast (I love to buy the cut up rotisserie chicken at Costco – so convenient!)
  • celery – chopped
  • 1/2 green apple – chopped
  • raw walnuts – chopped
  • Greek yogurt
  • sea salt

Stir it all together and enjoy on whole grain bread or a whole grain tortilla (such as Ezekiel), a bed of lettuce, or just right out of the bowl!

Container count, for the 21 Day Fix or 21 Day Fix Extreme, is in the picture below.

Busy Mom Nutrition Tip – Healthy Alternatives

I don’t think I’ve ever tried posting a Vlog! But I’m going for it today!

If you’re having trouble convincing your kids to get on-board with healthier eating…I get it! Been there. Done that! My kids did not react well when I told them I would no longer be buying hot dogs or chicken nuggets at the store. That’s not to say that they will never eat them again. I am all for special occasion allowances. However, I just don’t add these items to my grocery list anymore!

I’ve found ways to substitute healthier alternatives, for the foods that they love. And of course, it’s a work in progress! We are always looking for new foods to try! The wonderful thing is that the kids are so much more aware of the foods that they eat. They read labels just like I do! And that makes my heart go pitter-pat!

So here is my vlog! What do you think?

This is one of the examples from the video:yogurt_compare

Which yogurt would you pick? Carrageenan is an ingredient that you will find in some yogurts, soy milk, ice cream, etc. It’s added to make foods thicker, creamier and to create a ‘fuller’ feeling to low-fat foods. The problem is that carrageenan could be causing inflammation, gut irritation and even cancer. Beginning in the 1960s, researchers started linking the ingredient to gastrointestinal disease in lab animals, including ulcerative colitis, intestinal lesions, and colon cancer.

Make sure you scan your labels! If you see the “c” word…RUN!

Clean Eating Chicken Pot Pie

Mmmm… I’m drooling just thinking about how good this was!

I made this for a family visit yesterday, and it was a HIT! The kids loved it too! (Well…all but one, but he hates most everything I cook! Hoping he grows out of that!) 😉

This is creamy comfort food, with WHOLE food ingredients! *No red cans were opened for this recipe!

And…it’s 21 Day Fix approved! SCORE!


I love the way the quinoa crust on top turned out!

Feel free to get creative with your veggies and spices. There are a lot of combos that would be quite tasty I think!


Quinoa Crust:
    • 2 eggs, large
    • 2 egg whites
    • 1 tsp thyme, dried
    • 2/3 cups sharp cheddar cheese
    • 3 cups quinoa – cooked & cooled
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper, ground
  • 1 bunch broccoli – chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves – minced
  • 1/2 large onion – finely chopped
  • 4 cups frozen mixed veggies – thawed
  • 3 cups cooked chicken breast – diced
  • 2 t. olive oil
    1. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs and egg whites together. Add thyme, cheese, quinoa and stir to combine. Set aside.
    2. Preheat oven to 375° F. In a small bowl, whisk broth, milk, flour, salt, pepper and set aside.
    3. Preheat a large non-stick skillet on medium heat and add oil. Add garlic and onion, saute until translucent. Slowly pour slurry (broth and milk mixture) into the skillet, whisking and making sure no flour is left at the bottom of the bowl. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cook until sauce has thickened, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. Remove from heat and add veggies and chicken and stir to combine.
    4. Transfer to a 9 x 13 baking dish and flatten with a spatula. Drop spoonfuls of quinoa mixture on top and spread with a spatula to cover the filling evenly. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes. Let cool for 5 – 10 minutes, cut into 8 portions and serve hot.
21 Day FIX portions:
1 serving = 1 yellow, 1 red, 1 green
