Fit for February! *Take a Leap this year and save $70-$95!



There are 3 programs that are on sale for one more week that WILL help you get Fit for February!

Maybe you didn’t get the best start on your New Year’s resolutions. Or maybe you missed the whole resolution boat. It’s not too late to set some big goals for this year, and get some serious results before summer…but you’re going to need to take a leap, and commit! These are programs I have done myself, and I KNOW they work! Take advantage now and save $70-$95 and get in the BEST shape of your life!

21 Day Fix

Once in a while a program or plan comes around that changes EVERYTHING! This is the one. By now, you must have heard of it, or at the very least, you’ve seen these cute, colorful containers. This program works because it’s simple. It relies on the one and only formula that produces results. Fitness + Nutrition = SUCCESS.  I’ve seen it work time and time again. Women who follow this program lose up to 3-5 pounds per week. Men typically lose even faster (not fair btw!).

The daily 30 minute workouts will have you doing a little of everything: weights, cardio, pilates, yoga, etc. Anyone at any fitness level can do these workouts. There is a modifier that will show you how to do everything at a more modified level.


What kind of results are possible with this program? Check out Michelle’s results after 2 full rounds. She participated in challenge groups (see below), committed 100% to the program, fell in LOVE with Shakeology and just look at her now!



21 Day Fix Extreme

Have you complete the 21 Day Fix? Or just looking to kick it up a notch?

I have done BOTH the 21 Day Fix and Fix Extreme and they are BOTH fantastic programs that I strongly believe ANYONE can do! Extreme just adds a little more intensity, using weights and resistance in more of the workouts. You’ll do a different 30 minutes workout each day of the week. I LOVE the variety! The meal plan is just a bit more strict and focused, too…to help you get to the next level!

Hammer & Chisel

I am 3 weeks in to this program and LOVING it! Strength training is what finally helped me achieve results I never thought were possible for me. So this program is what I LOVE! The workouts are only 20-40 minutes. They are challenging, but DO-able! After my first week I lost 4 pounds and 2 inches! But better than that, I can SEE my body changing and getting more toned and defined. I feel stronger and my clothes just fit better!

Check out these results!


Learn MORE/Order January Specials!

*With these packages you’ll get the complete workout program, Shakeology (or the Performance line), a FREE bonus workout, 30 days FREE access to Beachbody on Demand (stream your workouts right away, anytime, anywhere!) and discounted shipping!

But there’s a secret sauce!

I have heard from people who started these programs and never finished them. It’s because they were lacking the KEY ingredient…ACCOUNTABILITY & SUPPORT! Ok fine, I guess that’s 2 ingredients

You don’t need to go it alone. I can help you, and so can a group of others who are all working together to stay on track.

I have groups starting Monday, February 1 that will help you start, re-start or continue your 21 Day Fix, Fix Extreme or Hammer & Chisel journeys. We’ll commit to our daily workouts, clean eating following the container system and report daily for accountability in a private Facebook group. I’ll share daily tips, recipes, meal plan ideas and motivation to keep you going for the full 21 Days!

Delicious, Nutritious & Cheaper than Starbucks!


Coffee drinkers rejoice!


Café Latte Shakeology’s Top 5 Q&A

Q: Does Café Latte contain more caffeine than the other Shakeology flavors?

A: NOT AT ALL! The caffeine levels in Café Latte are exactly the same as they are in ALL of our Shakeology flavors. So even though it tastes like coffee, Café Latte contains 75% less caffeine than an 8 oz. cup o’ Joe.

 Q: How does it taste?

A: Absolutely amazing! It’s incredibly rich, robust, and creamy with hints of Café and notes of Latte. It truly does taste just like a frozen coffee drink you’d get from a coffee shop, but Café Latte Shakeology has dense superfood nutrition as well.

Q: What makes Café Latte so special?

A: It’s formulated with WHOLE Coffee Fruit*—a coveted superfood powerhouse that’s native to regions of Mexico and India. Coffee fruit is the red fleshy fruit that surrounds what we know to be the coffee bean! Not only does Café Latte taste great, but the use of the entire plant also minimizes Shakeology’s carbon footprint.

Q: What if I don’t want to give up some of the other Shakeology flavors that I love?

A: Then get the Barista Triple Combo Box. This pack contains 24 single-serving packets of Café Latte, Vanilla, and Chocolate (8 per flavor), so you can mix and match your shakes like a true barista.

Now let’s do a cost analysis. My daughter talks me into taking her to Starbucks every so often, and I am SHOCKED at how much a drink costs! It’s an expensive habit! So, I come home and blend up my own for a fraction of the cost! One is full of empty calories, and the other is a superfood MEAL that keeps my nutrition on track, curbs cravings, reduces bloating, keeps me ‘regular’ and gives me an afternoon pick-up without the guilt!


This month try any Shakeology flavor, including the new Café Latte, and get started with a new workout program for FREE!
*versus a one-time order of Shakeology

If you want to save even MORE money, I’ll let you in on a little secret…ANYONE can get the coach discount. I originally signed up for the discount, but ended up turning this opportunity into an income that replaced my full-time 9-5 job! But if you just want to pay less for your monthly Shakeology with NO obligation to do anything else, message me and I’ll tell you how.

My monthly support groups are a FREE service I provide for all of my customers and they WORK! I provide daily tips, recipes and motivation and provide 24/7 support to help you reach your goals. Here is what current participants have to say:
“The motivation has just not been there but since joining this group, it certainly has gotten better. Worked out 6/7 times this past week and am hoping for the same this week. Thank goodness for you all and your support!!!!”

“I like to snack once I get home from work, but thanks to this group I haven’t. I work out and have my shakeology instead!”

“my proud moment of the week is starting another challenge group with you and even though it wasn’t pretty, I didn’t always want to do it and I am sore, I have gotten 6/6 days of workout in!!! (And tomorrow will be 7/7!) Thank you Angie for being a great coach!”

I just completed Week 1 of the Master’s Hammer & Chisel program and lost 3 pounds and 2 inches. I don’t actually want to lose much more weight, but I had a few holiday pounds to shed.

From here on out I want to build and tone! I have no doubt that this program will help me do that!

The secret sauce is my test group that keeps me accountable. We report in every day to support each other and keep each other on track. 






10 Tips to Get Back On Track After Vacation

If you’ve ever been on vacation – gee I sure HOPE you have! – than you KNOW it can be a real B!+(# to get back on track!

Vacations are SO fun! There’s eating out and drinks, late nights and snacks, treats and ignored workouts! And then…you come home…. Scale? What scale? I don’t see a scale! Please don’t make me stand on that scale! That’s when reality hits, and regret follows: WHY did I do it?! WHY WHY WHY!!!???

Nothing a little hard work and dedication can’t fix!

Here are my top 10 tips for getting back on track after a vacation!



1. Re-hydrate! Drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day to help flush those toxins from all that fun OUT of your body! Add some cut-up fruit for flavor (lemons, limes, berries, etc…). You’ll feel less bloated and better each day!

2. Re-fibrate! Eat lots of plant-foods plus oats, chia, flax, seeds and beans to clean out your insides and move the junk OUT of your body!

3. No eating late! Close the kitchen early and give your body time to digest before you lay down to sleep. You’ll sleep better and feel better in the morning.

4. State your goals. If you’ve fallen off track and want to get back on, sit down with pen and paper and remind yourself WHY it’s important for you to re-commit and get to work. Then it’s REAL!

5. Create a game plan. HOW are you going to reach those goals? Schedule your workouts, create a meal plan and shopping list and stick to it!

6. Start NOW! What are you waiting for? Don’t put off your goals for one more second. Every little step forward gets you closer to where you want to be.

7. Tell a friend. Maybe they’ll want to join you, but at the very least you’re holding yourself more accountable to your goals when you tell someone what you’re up to.

8. Get moving! Lace up and get sweaty! You will always feel better when you get in a good workout each day. You are more likely to stick to your nutritional goals when you’ve worked out early in the day. Who wants to sabotage that early morning workout?!

9. Eat at home. You can control what you eat when you prepare your foods at home. On vacation we eat out and consume a lot more fats and sodium than we would typically eat at home. Take a break from eating out and feed yourself clean, whole foods.

10. Get your Zzzz’s! I struggle to sleep in a bed other than my own, so when I get home from vacation, I always feel like I need a vacation! Does that make sense? Sleep a little extra to help your body recover from lost hours of sleep while you were away.
I’ll be tackling almost every one of these with the 3 Day Refresh!

What is the 3 Day Refresh? Watch and learn! 😉

I’ve done it before with GREAT results, so I’m doing it again. And the best part is that I won’t be starving myself – unlike some other detox/cleanse type programs.


The last time I did the #3DayRefresh, I felt less bloated the first day! I could tell a noticeable difference the second day! I just felt leaner and my tummy was definitely flatter! And after the third day I woke up with the following results:

I lost 4 pounds! 
Waist shrunk 1.5 inches!

*Now, of course you cannot lose 4 pounds of body fat in 3 days, BUT you can shed excess fluid and CRAP (literally!) that your body is holding on to from feeding it ‘not so nice’ foods!

It was a great re-boot! And it’s a fantastic way to get back on track after vacations and/or holidays!

UPDATE! Here are my NEW results!!! LOL!

Exact same as last time! 4 pounds and 1.5 inches!

To be OK with the body you have…


This is unbelievably HARD for me to post, but it’s like peeling off a band-aid before summer, and swimsuit season. I know everyone has their ‘thing’, and this is mine.

This is the thing that makes me cringe, and avoid the mirror. I’ve been working really hard to get past feeling insecure and self-conscious, and this is part of that process for me!

*I cannot believe I’m posting this on the world wide internets!


3 years ago I wouldn’t have DREAMED of wearing a bikini to the pool or the beach…NO WAY! Not with this “thing” on my belly. (Kids refer to it as a “butt” and giggle. I pretend it doesn’t bother me, but it does.)

I’ve spent the last 2 1/2 years working on ME. Getting fit, and making my health a priority has not only changed my body physically, but for the first time I’ve started feeling more comfortable in my own skin! My confidence and self esteem have improved drastically! So, even though it’s NOT easy…I WILL wear my bikini this summer – not to ‘flaunt’ anything, but to practice being OK with my whole self!

This scar is my badge of honor, for bringing 4 wonderful people into this world. It’s just part of who I am now. I continue working hard EVERY day to be OK with the body I have: every wrinkle, stretch mark, scar and freckle.

For me, that means controlling what I CAN: working out every day, and fueling my body with the kinds of foods that make me feel better, stronger and have enough energy to do everything I need to do, every day, with a smile on my face!

Will I ever have a 6-pack? Nope. But that’s not my goal. I’m just trying be as healthy as I can, so that I can wear that bikini with my head held high!

Let’s get to work, and get comfortable in our own skin!

I’ve got a support group starting on April 6th. We’ll workout, eat healthy foods and keep each other accountable! I’ll provide you with the all of tools you’ll need to be really successful! How about access to $1500 worth of proven fitness programs, and complete meal plans, for as little as $0! (zero) FREE?! (yep!) I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on these programs, but you don’t have to!

READY?! Click this button to get started: sign_up14


Here are ALL of the options!

Beachbody On Demand is a new way to stream workouts to any smart device/laptop/etc…you get access to apx 11 full workout programs, plus meal plans and lots of other great content (about a $1500 value).



You can pick any option

A – On Demand Challenge Pack (Shakeology + first 3 month access to Beachbody On Demand for free)

B – Shakeology Sampler Pack plus 3 months of BOD

C – 30 day trial of BOD for FREE!

And then there are a few other sales that I included at the bottom of the graphic for anyone interested in the 3 Day Refresh, T25 or TurboFire Challenge Packs (with Shakeology)

And finally…since The 21 Day Fix continues to be a HUGE hit in my groups, with challengers losing up to 10-15 pounds in 21 days…I wanted to be sure to mention that one too!

Here are some results from my last 21 Day Fix group:

  • Michelle lost 6 pounds and 10.5 inches!
  • Hope lost 5 pounds and 4 inches!
  • Carla lost 6 pounds and 3 inches!
  • Jennifer lost 5 pounds and 2 inches!
  • Angela lost 8.5 inches!

You can get the 21 Day Fix program alone for $59.95 or the Challenge Pack for $160 (with Shakeology – saves $$ when you bundle the 2 together).

*With ANY challenge pack purchase, you will also get the 30 day free trial of Beachbody On Demand!



Let’s Get Thankful!


Save $70 or $95! YOU decide!

PiYo was such a great program to pair with my marathon training over the summer. All of the strengthening, stretching, flexibility and toning with ZERO impact! It’s been great for challengers who can’t take or don’t WANT the jumping, and joint jarring that comes with some of the other programs.

In November, you can save $$ when you get started with the challenge pack, and you can save even MORE $$$ if you get the challenge pack WITH the wildly popular “3 Day Refresh”. Whether you do it now, or save it for the day after Thanksgiving, you’ll be SET up for success!!! The average American gains 7-12 pounds over the holiday! If you set yourself up now, you’ll LOSE at least that much, and feel amazing BEFORE the New Year!
