Free Cruise ahead! All aboard

I cannot believe we leave for our free 6 day cruise in just a few days. Seems like time just flies by lately. The older I get, the faster it moves. Anyone else notice how life just flies after you hit your thirties? Is it worse when you hit forties. It really makes me want to enjoy my time now and live. Just travel and do the things I want to enjoy now instead of waiting till I have one foot in the grave. How fun is that? Eh.

If you aren't following me on my Facebook page (and you really really should. hint hint ;), you may not know how I earned this free cruise. Basically, I earned it for helping people live healthier lives. I help give them the tools to get the results they want. Plus they get me in their back pocket for support, help with questions, guidance with nutrition and workouts, and more at no additional cost. My job really is awesome. I still cant believe I get paid to workout and help people get healthy. If you want to know more about what I do, message me and I would be glad to share it with you and see if it's a good fit. 

So, that I am totally getting off topic again because that is how I roll, let me get back to talking about the trip coming up. We are headed to Cozumel and Grand Cayman aboard the Royal Caribbean Liberty of the Seas cruise ship. I have been racking my brain trying to come up with a cool Beachbody door decoration, but I am drawing a blank. Creativity is not my strong-suite. I am really pumped about the trip because the trainers: Shaun T(creator of Insanity, Hip Hop Abs, and Focus T25), Tony Horton( creator of P90X), and Autumn Calabrese(just relased the new portion control container program with 30 minute workouts; 21 day fix) will be on board the ship and we will get to talk with them and workout with them on the ship. How cool is that!?! And the very best part of it is I get to do it with the man of my dreams. My husband is my best friend. I know we are going to have a blast hanging out with my fellow Beachbody Coach friends on the ship. The entire ship was chartered for this trip. Can you imagine? I don't even think I am fully prepared for how obnoxiously excited I will be getting on the boat. I think I may explode from excitement. For real! 

Time to get my workout out of the way. I have a hair appointment today! Being a girl has its perks.Thanks for reading my blog. Check back for recipes and more of my crazy life. I will make sure to post photo's when we get back.

So, in lieu of the upcoming feasting and celebrating on the ship (yes, even Coaches have vacations and splurge occasionally), I am going to buckle down and make sure my nutrition is on point all week. I am even considering doing the Shakeology 3 day cleanse before we get on. I do realize all of this is pretty much pointless since as soon as I eat one of the meals on the boat, I will have the dreaded belly bloat, but it's worth a shot. Lol. It can't hurt to lose a few pounds so that when I gain them back, i will be starting at zero and not at a negative - if that even makes sense.

Chalene Johnson's New PIYO Workout Release Date - AVAILABLE NOW

        Have you heard the rumors of a new Beachbody fitness program called PIYO? Chalene Johnson, creator of TurboJam, TurboFire, and Chalene Extreme has made the PIYO workout available for at home workouts, so you can do them in the comfort of your living room or anywhere at home; heck, you can even do it outside, at the beach, or wherever your heart desires.  How cool is that?!? PIYO is a pilates/Yoga workout that has you changing moves constantly, so you get a cardio workout at the same time. It helps build strength, toning, body sculpting, balance, tightens the abs and the list goes on. It can be done by someone with a physical limitation who might need a lower impact workout, or someone who may be a little older who needs to lengthen and strengthen their muscles.

          The release date for this new program is projected to be in June of 2014. Click here to get on my distro list for email updates on the release of the new workout. I will make sure you are kept in the loop and updated on details. It's HERE!

Healthy Chicken Salad

Try this easy chicken salad recipe. It's packed full of celery, apples, cranberries, and pecans and made with Greek yogurt, so it's better for the waistline and your health. This is a great recipe for meal prepping and planning. Make it on Sunday to have healthy clean lunches throughout the week. I like to eat it on a pita bread or ezekial bread with fresh spinach. It's easy to adjust the recipe to your liking as well. 

2 Cups chopped or cubed cooked chicken breast**
1/2-1  Cup Greek Yogurt (just enough to moisten)
1/8 cup Cranberries
1/3 cup Pecans, chopped
1-2 stalk Celery, chopped
1/8 red or yellow onion, chopped
1 green apple, chopped
salt, pepper and garlic powder - just a pinch of each
1-2 Tsp Dijon or regular mustard
a dash of stevia, agave, sugar or whatever sweetener you like

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine. Add more greek yogurt if needed. I add the salt and taste and add more if needed.  

**Boil chicken breasts in water for about 20 minutes or until fully cooked. Cool; chop or cube. You can make extra chicken and freeze for later use.

Meal Prepping and 21 Day Fix Snacks

Meal Prepping for the 21 Day Fix

This is a program that requires a lot of food prep and keeping fresh foods in your house, which if you are eating clean well, it should be easy for you because its along the same lines. Yesterday I spent about 2 hours grilling some chicken, cutting it and putting it into bags (which i will freeze), cutting up fruit and veggies, boiling eggs, etc. I know the kids and my husband will be eating some of the fruits and veggies, but hopefully I can keep them from eating all of it. Lol. I think I need to get the kinds involved in meal prep, huh? It's always hard to make myself plan ahead, but when I do, things go much smoother during the week. 

Here is an example of my snack from the 21 day fix. It's strawberries and blackberries which I got on sale this week at Kroger BTW, Greek yogurt, slivered almonds and a little stevia. This would be one red, one purple and about 1/3 blue (almonds). The program is really not that difficult once you start using the containers. The main thing is to have things prepped and easy to measure out and try to plan ahead.

If you are interested in purchasing the 21 day fix from a Coach (that's me!), you can order from my link here and I will be available to help you through the program. If you are interested in Shakeology to go along with the program, you can get it bundled at a discount here. 

Ask me how you can join my next Elite 21 Day Clean Eating support group that coincides with the 21 day fix Beachbody workout and nutrition program. We will do the 30 minute workouts at home and check in daily to hold each other accountable to our goals. Message me at for more information.

21 Day Fix Tally Worksheet

Print off this handy 21 Day Fix printable to make planning and keeping up with your meals easier. 

Portion control just got easier with this incredible new product from Beachbody and Autumn Calabrese. The 21 Day Fix will teach you how to eat clean most of the time, while still occasionally indulging in things like lasagna, pizza, wine, chocolate and still lose weight. The secret is moderation and the right combinations of carbs, proteins and fats. This program takes the guess work out of it. It tells you how many of each container to eat each day, and you follow the guide. It's really simple. The workouts are 30 minute, short and effective strength training and cardio workouts that will get you lean and mean in no time at all. Nutrition is 80-90% of the battle when it comes to weight loss, so it makes sense that this would yield such incredible before and after results. Check out this photo of a girl in one of my support groups after just 2 weeks. She has a cast on and she can fit her hand in her cast! That is crazy!

***If you need more support and accountability, let me know and I can add you to my private support and accountability group on Facebook***

Please like my page on Facebook and let me know if you enjoyed this recipe.
