By now you’ve probably seen an infomercial, seen the cute little color-coded cups, or know someone who’s done it. Either way, the 21 Day Fix has gained enormous popularity for one reason…it really, actually works! But don’t take my word for it! Come and see for yourself!
On Thursday, July 14, we’ll be sharing some insight about the 21 Day Fix:
We’ll give you a peek at the workouts, explain the containers and the meal plan, show you some transformation stories and let you hear from the creator Autumn Calabrese.
We’ve each done the programs (21 Day Fix & 21 Day Fix Extreme) several times, and have supported our challengers and customers who use these programs, too. We will answer any and all of your questions so you can decide if this program would be a good fit for you!
We did a similar group in June (the sale was extended through the end of July!), and check out the results and testimonials of some of the ladies who “peeked” last month and are just a couple weeks in to their 21 Day Fix!
“I love the planning ahead of time & have been doing my shakeology for breakfast with fruit and a salad at lunch, so that helps. Honestly, I’m not hungry! I finally feel this is something I can do & can accomplish!”
“…ate great according to 21 day fix,could drink more water though! Things going great! Finally feeling like I can go this once & for all!”
“I am down 6 1/2lbs total though so far 🙂”
“down almost 8 lbs. now!”
“This program is changing my life right now.”
*It’s on crazy, super sale this month, cheapest it’s been and ever will be, so now is a great time to check it out!
Some of my best recipes come from a last minute scan of my kitchen to find some ingredients that might come together and make something edible! Last night was one of those occasions. I had originally planned something entirely different, but had to change plans last minute. I had 1 hour to plan and prepare a meal the whole family would eat (or at least most of them!). 😉
I recently acquired LOTS of summer squash from our farm share, and I was hoping to incorporate at least a couple of them! That was my starting point. Anything “Mexican” is always a big hit at my house, so that was next. Next came some protein, and flavorful additions and boom! This was really very simple to make, and it came together quite quickly. OH! And it’s 21 Day Fix friendly! So there you go!
And here YOU go!
Mexican Summer Squash Casserole
1-1.25 pounds of lean ground turkey
2-3 medium summer squash (sliced) – I used yellow squash and zucchini
1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
1 can diced tomatoes (drained)
1/2 medium onion (chopped)
2-3 garlic cloves (minced)
1 T. olive oil
1 T. chili powder
1 t. cumin
1 t. paprika
1 t. oregano
1/4 t. chipotle chili powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup shredded colby jack (whatever variety you like)
Preheat oven to 400°. Spray a 9×13 inch pan and set aside. In a large skillet, add olive oil and saute the onion and garlic until translucent. Add the ground turkey and cook until brown and done. (Drain if necessary) Remove from pan and set aside. Add squash, beans, and tomatoes, and cook over medium-low for about 5-6 minutes until the squash is just tender. Put meat back into the pan and add the chili power, cumin, paprika, oregano, chipotle chili powder, salt and pepper. Stir everything together over low heat until incorporated and heated through. Pour into the 9×13 inch pan and top with shredded cheese. Bake for approximately 15 minutes – until cheese is bubbly. Let cool for another 15 minutes before cutting into it.

My challengers are getting such GREAT results with it!
Need some support reaching your fitness and weight loss goals? Jump into my accountability group. It’s all done on Facebook. I proved daily tips, recipes and motivation. We check in daily for the support and accountability that’s often missing when you go it alone!
Last week, for FIVE days, a group of ladies – mostly busy moms – made time for themselves! Imagine THAT! We focused on preparing healthy foods, and fitting in 30 minute workouts. We had a 5-day meal plan and a private group for support and accountability. We measured before we started and then hid the scale for 5 days! Five days later, we brought the scales back out and the results were AMAZING!
In just FIVE days, with 12 ladies reporting, they lost a combined total of 37.5 pounds! That’s an average of over 3 pounds each…in just five days! And truth be told…many of them admit to not getting in every 30 minute workout, but by just cleaning up their diet for 5 days, they lost the weight anyway!
Read their testimonials!
Kristin: “I lost 2 pounds and stayed on track. Thank you Angie!!! Your kindness shows through in helping others.”
Chris: “I lost 2.4 lbs., no inches. I love having the accountability because it keeps me on track! Thank you!”
Hope: “Happy … dropped 3 lbs! A start to those unwanted extra 7 I packed on during the fall/winter. Heading in the right direction. I’m feeling real good about what could be an awesome outcome with an exercise routine. Thanks for invite!”
Audra: “I too lost 3 pounds. Believe it or not. I didn’t exercise much. I did love the meal plan. I am excited to keep on going. Thanks Angie. I can’t wait to give the next one more commitment. I’m sure the results will be amazing.”
April: “I lost 2 pounds. I haven’t measured but I notice my stomach is a bit tighter and I cranked up my back workouts this week and loving the progress. Thanks so much for the motivation all week!!”
Sharon: “Down a pound and down 1.5 inches. Thank you Angie for coordinating this challenge for us! I loved having the accountability and the easy to follow meal plan. It definitely got me back on track with clean-eating and showed/reminded me that it’s not as hard to do it as sometimes I think AND I feel better and sleep better when I eat good, clean food! Thanks Angie ! You’re the best!”
Molly: “I lost 4 pounds! I didn’t see much change in my measurements. I’m going to keep using the meal plan but mix it up a little! My typical work day always included a stomach ache after lunch – no matter what I was eating – the healthy choice meal or a salad? I did not have one stomach ache this week!! I didn’t think I would be able to cut out the diet pop – it was hard but not as hard as I thought it would be! It was a very good week – I had to adjust some meals for my kids but hopefully they will work into more of the food as we keep going! Thanks for a great week with nice results!”
Debbie: “I lost 1.3 pounds. I just got P90X3 so anxious to start that. I never have an issue working out. I love to work out. I just can’t get the last bit of my diet dialed in. I have a mental hang up somewhere. Thanks for the great week.”
Stefanie: “I actually lost 1lb. I did eat clean But didn’t follow the meal plan 100%. I exercised only 2 this week. It really wasn’t about losing anything for me, but feeling energized and the good feeling you get when you eat clean!! Ty Angie Beech Hunt!!”
Kelley: “Loved this 5 day challenge! Before I got the stomach flu, I’d say I was at an 8 for the challenge. I love the hide the scale idea…I have to do that more often!!!! I lost 10.8, which some of that was due to being sick, but definitely not all! Thanks, Angie”
Michelle: “Really enjoyed this challenge, thank you Angie. I just got back from vacation so this was great for me to get right back on track! I have had so much energy this week and felt great! I lost 3 lbs and am very happy with that! I would give myself a 7 for excercise this week and a 9 for nutrition! I will be making my own meal plan today for next week. Thanks again!”
Nancy: “I was so excited to weigh and measure this morning! I lost 4 lbs and 5 inches! Even though I couldn’t workout much this week, I think being sick helped me not eat much. Angie, thank you SO much for doing the meal plan. I always thought eating clean would be harder…and it did take some extra planning, but I really liked all of the food! This is definitely something I am going to continue (with exercise).”
Now imagine what those results could have been with everyone focusing on BOTH exercise AND nutrition!
And then imagine what we could accomplish in 21 Days of clean eating and daily 30 minute workouts! Well, some of these ladies are going to find out! And you can, too! 🙂
Starting April 7, I’m starting a 21 Day Challenge. We’ll be using the EXTREMELY popular program – The 21 Day FIX. My first group with this program lost an average of 4 pounds/week each! One of the ladies lost 18 pounds in just 21 days – almost a pound a day!!! This program combines nutrition AND fitness. You’ll get an easy to follow nutrition guide that utilizes neat, color-coded containers that you fill with the foods you need to eat each day. You’ll be eating lean proteins, whole grains, fruits, veggies and good fats, in PROPER portion sizes! You won’t need to count calories or points or anything like that. If it fits in the container, you can eat it! And you’ll find that a little goes a long way! The most common comment from my first group was how satisfied everyone was eating this way every day! They were shocked, because they weren’t hungry! And the workouts? Every day you’ll do a different 30 minute workout. They are so effective and easily modified for anyone at ANY level of fitness!
I’m excited to start another group with this program, because it is SO effective! Deadline to join is March 31 and spots will be limited. So if you’re ready to commit for 21 days and see what you can achieve, provide your information below so that I can get you signed up and ready to go!
*Sorry, no coaches or anyone already working with a coach.
21 Days, COMPLETE fitness and nutrition plan, AMAZING results!
*UPDATE: Limited Supply! Base kits have sold out until the end of March! Challenge Packs still available…read below!
Now there’s a program that makes losing weight so simple and easy to follow, you’ll never have to diet again! Counting calories and points can be a PAIN! You won’t need to do any counting with this program! And the workouts are just 30 minutes/day! Everyone can find 30 minutes!
A total body reset with ‘normal foods’! 🙂 The 21 Day Fix was designed to be tough and effective. But it’s also a program that takes the guesswork out of weight loss. It’s a unique portion-control system combined with easy-to-follow workouts that fit into anyone’s busy schedule.
The program’s trainer, Autumn Calabrese, has designed a plan that is the key focal point in this 21 day program. As you may know already, the Beachbody Ultimate Reset is a power 21-day total body cleanse that will give you insane results! However, the menu and foods can be quite intense and over-whelming. Well…good news. Autumn took the 21-Day Reset philosophy and broke it down using more traditional foods and meal planning. Also, unlike the Ultimate Reset, you are still able to workout with the 21 Day Fix! YAY!
The Meal Plan
When you purchase the 21 Day Fix, you will get portion-controlled containers to measure all of your food. Furthermore, Autumn outlines everything so you don’t have to do any kind of counting. If it fits into the container, you can eat it! Just fix, go and eat! What I like about the program is that she realizes that the ideals behind the program are not short-term. This has to work in real life! So she allows you to have things like chocolate and wine! You will develop behaviors during the 21 days that will become habits that will turn into a healthy lifestyle! Anyone can do this program! And you can do it again and again. As long as you want results, or whenever you need a short re-boot, this is your go-to program!
The program consists of 7 different workouts. Each workout lasts just 30 minutes and they are mixed up over the 3 weeks. The workouts can be done anywhere with very little equipment. Many of the moves are done with just body-weight. You’ll want a couple of hand-weights, and that’s about it. You’ll do a little of everything: yoga, pilates, strength-training, plyometrics, etc! The workouts are basic enough for beginners and challenging enough for more advanced users.
Initial test group participants, with people who stuck with the program, lost up to 10-15 pounds! And the weight loss won’t come from starving or depriving yourself! You’ll eat healthy, balanced meals, with plenty of calories. This is Beachbody’s first program to place equal emphasis on the nutrition AND fitness components…together!
I have a test group slated to start February 17! There’s still time to get your program and join the group for support, accountability and motivation! As of yesterday, base kits have sold out and are expected to begin shipping again at the end of March. BUT, challenge packs (with Shakeology) are ON SALE in February only, and still available for $140, which is like getting the program for $11! And you can order yours HERE!
To sign up for the Test Group, please provide your information below.
The key to making fried rice like you get in the restaurant, is using cold rice! So first, you have to ‘accidentally’ make too much rice for dinner some night. THEN, a couple of nights later, you have to remember that you MEANT to do that, so that you could make some fried rice! I used brown rice that I cook in my rice cooker, because that thing RULES! I could NEVER cook brown rice right until I got one of those babies! Now, that’s ALL I make! Go ME! You can eat this as a main dish, OR as a side dish with some delish Asian-inspired entrée! Either way, it’s a crowd-pleaser. 🙂
