I am VERY excited to announce that I lost ZERO pounds!
And WHY would I be excited about that?
Because I lost 9 freaking inches!!!
3 from my waist alone! Bloated anyone? And I definitely added some muscle, and toned up: legs, booty, slight ab shadows, lol! I’ll take muscle pounds over mushy pounds ANY day of the week!
I hope I don’t need to point out which of these pictures are my before pictures…but YA! Holy bloated! (I swear to you I am NOT pushing my gut out…but I wish I was!)
Rewind to just after the holidays (nuff said) AND I was also recovering from foot surgery to boot! (no pun intended!)
Workouts were a minimum, and crap food was a maximum!
Once I got the green light from my doctor, I was fired up and ready to feel a little better about wearing this bikini to Punta Cana…. TOMORROW!
I still had some restrictions and needed to modify quite a bit at the beginning, but lucky for me…I had EVERYTHING in my toolbox that I needed.
My secret weapons:
Workouts on Demand (like Netfilx that makes you sweat!)
Meal plan that even a monkey could follow.
One super healthy, kickass, quick, convenient meal in a cup.
A support group full of the coolest bunch of ladies where we do our best to stay on track, celebrate victories, gently encourage, exchange healthy, family-friendly recipes and just generally get our mojo back little by little, day by day!
These on demand workouts have been SO key in my journey these last few months. They have eliminated EVERY excuse I could have used:
Can’t do lower body?No problem – search “upper body workouts”.
Can’t jump?No problem – search “low impact”
Don’t have enough time?No problem – search “under 30 minutes”
Sick of the same workouts?No problem – try one of 600 others!
*You get the idea!
WARNING: Do not read the next paragraph if you are not interested in hearing about sales and deals!
And here’s the deal, I hate talking about money here, but I just feel like I need to share in case someone is looking for a way to get started. For 4 more days you can get this WHOLE package for $160 (usually $199) which gives you access to Beachbody on Demand for a FULL YEAR! And get this, when you subtract the prices of Shakeology and the meal plan & container system, you’re left with $1.99 for an entire year of a gym and top trainers in your house!
I’m leaving for Punta Cana in less than 24 hours – an all expense paid trip I EARNED through this amazing coaching opportunity – and I packed 2 bikinis! 🙂 I’m not 100% where I want to be yet, but I know I’ll get there! I’m Angie…in Progress after all!
And I’m going to hit the ground running with my “Busy Moms & Ladies Bootcamp” group on May 8th where we’ll be focusing on daily 30 minute (or less) workouts and simple, healthy, family-friendly meals. We’ll be sharing daily time-saving tips, recipes and motivation in pursuit of a healthy, sustainable lifestyle!
Why don’t you join me?! I just have a few spots left!
Contact me below and we’ll chat about your goals and HOW to reach them!
*For anyone who is not a coach or already working with one.
These pictures were about 1 1/2 years apart but there is a world of difference – both in what you can see, and what you can’t see.
About 4 years ago I took a look at myself in the mirror and decided I was finally done being unhappy! I had been stuck in a rut for FAR too long. Looking at pictures of myself from our summer vacation really opened my eyes to what was happening. It was slow, but I was steadily gaining weight and finding it harder and harder to fit and feel comfortable in my clothes.
There were a lot of things I didn’t want to admit to myself. I wasn’t REALLY giving it my all with workouts anymore. I was just kinda going through the motions. I wasn’t REALLY eating all that healthy. There was a lot of processed garbage finding its way into my grocery cart. Convenience trumped health. I was complacent, uncommitted and UN-motivated!
I think you go through phases when this starts to happen.
1. DENIAL: It’s my clothes. They shrunk. My scale must be off! (Don’t tell me you haven’t tried to convince yourself with these same lies!)
2. AVOIDANCE: Scale? What scale? I like baggy, stretchy clothes anyway.
3. DEPRESSION: Why is this happening?! I workout! I eat ‘pretty’ healthy food. It’s not fair! Get away from me with that camera! WAHHH!!! I’m going to assume the fetal position in a dark room. Leave me alone!
4. DEFEAT: Well, what the hell. I’m getting older. This is just what happens. There isn’t ANYTHING I can do about it. I’m not going to live the rest of my life worrying about it. I want to ENJOY life and eat whatever the hell I want. Working out is stupid. I don’t care anymore.
5. REALIZATION: I feel like shit. I don’t fit into any of my clothes. I’m tired all of the time. I’m not enjoying life at all right now! I’m sick of feeling like this. I gotta do something!
What stage are you in? If you’re in 1-4, let me save you the trouble and spoil the ending. You’ll eventually get to #5, because no matter how hard we try to convince ourselves that we can’t, or don’t want to feel look and feel healthy, we do. You’re not kidding anyone (or yourself) when you say otherwise. I know…I tried!
There’s a happy ending though! 🙂 I had to dig deeper than ever, and really connect with WHY I wanted/needed to make some changes, and really give it my absolute, 100% ALL!
If this resonates with you at all…I would love to help you find your path to feeling better and more confident in your summer vacation pictures! My new group: “2017: This Will Be MY Summer!” group starts on April 3. Sign up below!
This is a bet you’re going to want to take! Quite possibly the easiest way to earn money I’ve ever heard of…seriously! There will be anywhere from $1 million to $3 million in the pot (it’s growing every day!) and you will split that with everyone else who does 3 simple things:
Workout a minimum of 3 times/week. (easy!)
Drink Shakeology (and take pictures for proof) 5 times/week. (delicious!)
Log your activity in the Challenge Tracker app from Sept 5 – Oct 2.
If you’re already working out and drinking Shakeology…this is a NO-brainer! All you need to do is sign up for my next challenge, starting September 5, do the 3 things listed above, and you’ll be sharing a piece of the pie! How much money you win just depends on the total prize pot and the number of participants! But you are guaranteed to walk away with some extra cash just for living a healthy lifestyle. No embarrassing weigh-ins required. Just sweat and sip your way through September and you’re a winner! (In more ways than one!)
Deadline to get signed up is Monday, August 29!
*Extended through Sunday 9/4!
Don’t have a workout you love? (I can help with that!) Not drinking Shakeology? (I can help with that, too!) *Try it for 30 days and if you don’t love it, return an empty bag. Seriously.
There are a TON of GREAT sales this month! If you try Shakeology you get a workout program for just $10 more! All of the TOP programs are on sale! Check it out!
I don’t know about you, but with all of the travelling and vacations, eating out, bbq’s, etc….I kinda lost focus a bit. My workouts slipped and nutrition too. It wasn’t a total loss, but I’ve got some work to do to get back on track! This is the perfect time to do just that!
Summer is winding down, and we’re about to get hit with busy schedules, kids’ activities, demands of our time, fall treats and goodies, etc… We can’t be the best version of ourselves to take all of that responsibility on without taking care of ourselves first! Take this bet and set yourself up for a fall that you can take head on – with your head up – feeling good about yourself, with more energy to do all of the things! I will be there to help you every step of the way! And together we will get fit and win some cash to boot!
ShOcKtObEr!!! Get amazing results with Beauty and the Beast (for FREE!)
Look….it’s about to get crazy! The holidays are just around the corner! (I’m just as shocked and unprepared as you are!). But we are sitting here in the calm before the storm. And the timing couldn’t be better to set some serious goals and make some serious progress before the new year!
Let’s do the math…
2016 is 12 weeks away! If you lost a minimum of one pound per week, you would be down 12 pounds by the end of the year! TWELVE POUNDS!!! That can mean a dress size or TWO, and getting into those skinny jeans that you had to put away! But what if you lost 3 pounds per week? (still totally do-able) You would start the new year down 36 pounds! We’re talking serious life-changing stuff here!
The back to school nightmare is behind us, and new nightmares await. You have time right now to get started on making some healthy new habits that will carry you through the holiday parties and temptations galore! This is the time of year when people usually start gaining weight. Not you! Not this year!
The perfect formula is a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise each day, clean whole foods and support and accountability to help you stick with it!
Exercise + Nutrition + Support = RESULTS!
I’ve seen success time and time again in my challenge groups when the right tools are in place. The ‘tools’ that I have seen the most success with BY FAR are the cute little color-coded, portion control containers and the 30 minute workouts that come with the “Beauty”, Autumn Calabrese and the 21 Day Fix .
This program works! Check out the results!
If you haven’t tried it yet…what are you waiting for? It’s simple, straight forward and it works. If you’ve already completed the 21 Day Fix, it’s time to kick it up a notch with the 21 Day Fix Extreme!
OH! And they are both ON SALE!!! How does *FREE* sound?!
This month you can get the 21 Day Fix or 21 Day Fix Extreme for FREE when you order Shakeology. When you get a challenge pack, you’ll receive all of the tools you’ll need to be successful:
color-coded portion-control container for super simple meal planning
30 minute daily workouts (strength, yoga, cardio, pilates, …something different every day!)
30 day supply of Shakeology (proven to help weight loss)
PLUS a 30 day FREE trial of Beachbody on Demand
FREE insulated tote for your healthy foods to-go
AND a FREE bonus workout from ME! 🙂
Check it out:
Pick your pack and jump into my next support group and let’s do this!
Maybe you’ve already done both of these – VERY possible if you’re a workout junky like me! 😉
You can get Body Beast with trainer Sagi Kalev for FREE in a challenge pack with Shakeology this month too!
I LOVE this program! Save $70 versus buying the program and Shakeology separately and get 30 days Beachbody on Demand, a bonus workout and the performance sampler pack for FREE! You gotta try these new all-natural performance supplements! I’m seriously in love!
Join my next support group!

Next month is OUR month! What if this year for Mother’s Day, you gave yourself the gift of BALANCE!?
I NEED this! With 4 kids, running my own business and a life full of time commitments, appointments, activities, etc…it is even more important for me to be at my BEST! And for me that means carving out some time every day to take care of myself! Fitness and clean eating is what saved me about 2 years ago. I finally put myself at the top of my list of priorities, and then everything else just fell into place. I feel so much stronger, confident and ready to take on all of my responsibilities now. And I’m excited to share what has worked for me with YOU!
We have SO many plates spinning, all of the time! Kids, career, friends, family, day to day commitments… How are we supposed to find time to do it all AND still have time left in the day for ourselves?! Our own health and fitness often take a backseat to everything else.
This group is for you. What if we could work together and learn how to balance all of the busy-ness AND make time for you, too?! Cause you know what? When YOU make time for YOU, your health, your fitness and your overall well-being, you’ll be better at EVERYthing else!
Starting Monday May 11, for 21 days we’ll focus on:
30 minute or less workouts that you can do at home – NO EXCUSES!
every day, family-friendly nutrition tips & ideas
weekly meal planning & prepping strategies
simple, healthy recipes the whole family will love
ways to lead by example for our kids by being healthy AND happy!
AND time saving tips & organization strategies to help you balance it all, while keeping your head screwed on straight!
If this sounds like something you’d like to do for yourself, if you desperately NEED balance in your life, fill out the form below!
But HURRY! Deadline to join is this Saturday, May 2. Just a few spots left!

Are you ready to make some changes and get working on your own transformation?
I started my journey about 2 1/2 years ago, and it wasn’t just a physical transformation…I changed inside and out! I have more energy and self esteem than when I was in my 20’s! My 4 kids get the best of me now, instead of the last of me. I’m a better mom, friend and wife as a result of this lifestyle change. And my kids are eating healthier foods, my husband has undergone his own transformation as have many of my friends and family members. One seed planted an entire garden, and it just keeps growing!
I’d love to invite you to join me, on April 20th, to start your journey, or continue a journey that you’ve already started! I’ll provide daily support and motivation, share healthy recipes, and help you stay on track to reach your goals.

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!”

And it’s SO much more WONDERFULLER when you feel good!
2 years and 24 pounds ago, I did not feel so wonderful. I was at a time in my life when I figured I had tried everything, done it all, and just wasn’t getting the results I wanted. I was THIS close to giving up – throwing in the towel.
I am a busy mom of 4, and really…who cares right? WRONG!!! I cared! Of course I did! I was just trying to convince myself that I didn’t, because facing the reality that nothing I was doing was working was hard to swallow.
One more try, I told myself. Give it all you’ve got! Commit 100% and see what happens…
Fast forward 2 years I lost 24 pounds, just by eating healthy foods and working out at HOME – doing programs I LOVE! I feel better than ever, have more energy, more confidence and just a better outlook on life in general! I ran a marathon for crying out loud!!!
And now I get to pay it forward and help others find what works for them! Are you ready to find out? Give it your all? Make 2015 the best year ever! Where do you want to be NEXT December?
START with me on January 5th – set some BIG goals for the NEW year and REACH them!
You can do it and I can help!
Let’s get FIT & LEAN in 2015!
New Challenge Group will start Monday, January 5.
And Daily 24/7 support from me!
Will you get all of that from a gym club membership?! I don’t think so.
There are several options for this group. Dust off an old Beachbody program, or try something NEW for the new year! Purchase a challenge pack and be eligible to win $100! Challenge Packs consist of a NEW program + Shakeology at a discounted ‘bundle’ price PLUS $2 shipping! *BEST VALUE
