Isagenix 30 Day Cleanse - Days 1 & 2

2 days down! 

Starting this cleanse is really like anything else...taking the FIRST STEPS to commit, sign up, order products & begin the program were the hardest.  Now that I'm in, I'm just doing it!

I'm not a quitter - so I really think I'll see this to the end. And the accountability of (1) starting this with my mom & sister and (2) having all of you in-the-know about it is definitely helping me want to succeed even more!

So, why AM I doing this??

I WANT to sleep better!
I WANT to think clearer!
I WANT to lose some weight!
I WANT to have energy!
I WANT to drop the habits of unnecessary snacking & "closet eating." <-- **news flash - those foods still have plenty of calories even if no one saw you eat it!**

So, my short recap for the first couple of days....I'm doing OK! I actually really like the taste of the shakes - either 2 scoops of chocolate or 1 scoop of chocolate + 1 scoop of vanilla - especially in the Ninja with ice blended for a minute or so. They're keeping me full and I honestly enjoy them. And it's SUCH an easy, well rounded breakfast!

I am also loving the milk chocolate IsaDelights - they are creamy and delicious! (I keep them in the fridge and then, as a midday snack, break one up into 3-4 pieces and let them melt in my mouth...yum!) I'm so happy that I was encouraged to add these to my standard 30 day cleanse pack. And I'm looking forward to being able to have them on cleanse days, too!

I've been super motivated and cooking delicious dinners for the whole family to enjoy! ((NO photos because ...I forgot! And this is why this whole blogging thing is just a hobby! lol))

  • Day 1 was shrimp, veggies & brown basmati rice! 
    • The shrimp was precooked. I tossed raw broccoli & cut up squash & zucchini in a little olive oil, minced garlic, garlic powder, salt & pepper. Bake at 425*F for 10-15 minutes. While that's in the oven, toss shrimp in the same "mixture" as above & put in the oven too, continue to bake for 15(ish) minutes.
    • Use your judgment on time, and stir/flip veggies & shrimp often!
    • Just a little bit of rice for me! (I know it's not following the plan exactly but I wanted it!)
  • Day 2 was Crock-Pot salsa chicken with quinoa & steamed broccoli!
    • EASIEST Crock-Pot recipe ever! Just toss in a couple of jars of store bought salsa (or make your own!) with some raw, thinly sliced chicken breasts & cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. You should be able to pull apart the chicken when it's ready. Done & done!
    • Again, just a little quinoa for me!
The longer I'm doing the program, the more I'm learning about and loving the products....& the more I'm learning about the business! I'm so excited to share my journey and hopefully help some of you in the process!

Remember to check out the website & reach out with any questions!

Today is a CLEANSE day! One minute at a time....that's the way I'm going to attack it...stay tuned!!

This Healthy Living Blogger is getting back to healthy living!

I'm baaaaaack!

It has been a long time coming - I missed you guys, but the pressure of blogging on top of my work, my family & my life got to be too much for me. Something's gotta give sometimes.

But (for now!) I'm back to blogging....and for a very exciting reason!

In the last 6 months or so I've lost myself a little. We had to put my sweet little Honey to sleep, I'm not training for any races or events and, even though I'm exercising regularly, my diet has been completely subpar....among other things. Hello life!

I feel foggy, tired, unexcited, bloated....just not good! 

Thanks to my girl Gina I'm starting a new journey - to a healthier, happier, cleaner, more energetic me....and I'm doing it alongside my sister & my mom!!

We are doing a 30 day Cleansing & Fat Burning program. NO, it's not like a "colonoscopy prep" cleanse or a starvation diet.... You feed your body with vitamins & nutrients while cleansing the body of impurities and toxins, in short! ;)

Products & Planner....ready to go!
So today is DAY 1 - a shake day!  I plan to give full details on the program and the products, the daily schedule, and tips & tricks that I learn along the way that can help others....but for now I'll leave you with my personal Isagenix page.

You can learn more about the products &, after we discuss, we can decide if any of the products/programs are right for you and place an order to start your OWN journey to health & wellness.

IF I love the program and the products as much as I think I will, I plan to try & share the knowledge with all of you and sell the products to help my friends & followers! But that's a chat for another day...30 days from now! :) Stay tuned.

So, tell me - have you ever tried Isagenix products or done a Nutritional Cleanse?

New "Head to Toe" 20 Minute Workout!

Hi guys!

I'm here for a quick second today just to share a workout that I created for a friend last week...& I loved it so much I did it myself, too! 

I was a sweaty mess after only 20 minutes! It's a simple (in construction! lol) & FAST workout with great exercises that will really BLAST fat, BUILD lean muscle & LEAVE you feeling strong!

Do this anywhere! You don't need any equipment or a lot of room! And then let me know what you think :)

Also, I'm doing the Color Fun Fest 5k Run this weekend so stay tuned for a recap & pics on the blog next week!

So tell me....what have you guys been up to lately??

Get ready for 2 awesome 20 minute AMRAP workouts!

I have been SOOO MIA lately! (my last post was over 2 weeks ago!)

I got 2 new SMM clients last week which is awesome...and making me even busier than I already was! Sadly, Peace, Love & Ice Cream is the last thing on my to-do-list and sometimes I never actually get to the end of that list - very sadly!

I did make a resolution earlier this year to post more unique, created-by-me workouts so here I am with 2 BRAND NEW ones for ya!

I was inspired because I (finally!) got insurance so I can start training clients - WOO HOO! - and because <<this lady>> created & then led her friends in 2 on-the-beach boot camp workouts last weekend while we were on vacay!!

I don't have many pics (sorry!) but I do have the workout details and I HIGHLY recommend you try them - on different days, of course! lol

They are for men & women of ALL FITNESS LEVELS, seriously!

That's the beauty of an AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) long as you're constantly moving and pushing yourself then you're doing it right! :)

So since it's been soooo long, tell me what's doing by you! :)
And let me know if you try these workouts!!

Mom Confessions...Part 2!

Back in 2013 (OMG!), I posted some of my Mom Confessions!

And now I'm back with Part 2!

Before I get into it let me clarify and say that I am NOT shameful of these things....I'm a good GREAT mom and a good GREAT wife! 

I just felt like I should share some of my fun mom facts with you guys because I KNOW you'll have my back on at least one (if not more!) of these Mom Confessions!

1. My 3 year old still sleeps in a crib!

I know - pick your jaw up off of the floor! ;) 

But he loves it!! He's fully potty trained, sleeps peacefully through the entire night and can't get in or out without me! {#winning} Sure, he looks like an overgrown baby in it, but he's I'm happy!

2. I lie "fib" daily!

"We can't go because the park is closed"...."We have to go inside because it's about to start raining"...."We can't watch that because the TV is broken"...."Daddy (who's at work) said we can't {fill in the blank}"......and the list goes on...

3. I answers kids' questions ALL.DAY.LONG!

My kids ask some seriously hard questions...some most of which I have no idea how to answer! I consider myself a smart girl...which helps me come up with some very creative answers! lol

4. Sometimes I eat cereal for dinner.

I graze while I cook dinner for my family...and then while I'm cleaning up...but when it comes time for me to eat there are times I'm just not in the mood anymore! Cereal is sometimes just what the doctor ordered! 

5. My kids know that their parents lead a healthy, active lifestyle.

This one I am actually VERY proud of! I live my life in sports bras/tank tops/spandex pants and 4 out of 5 days I get in a workout. Most of those happen right in my living room - with my kids watching!

They can do burpees and squats and push-ups and they always hop in for a minute or 2!  Because I not only preach it I LIVE it, they know the importance of being healthy and staying active and we believe that is one of the GREATEST gifts you can give your children & your family! #truth

An Awesome, At-Home, Outdoor, Kick-Butt Boot Camp Workout!

Hey friends!

I hope you are all having a happy HOLIDAY weekend! We're celebrating Passover (because we're Jewish!) and Easter (because we have a Christmas Tree!) with family & friends and we're having a great weekend so far!  The weather is hot but gorgeous (#sorrynotsorry) so I decided to take my workout OUTSIDE this morning!

My sister was coming over so we could work out together (always a treat!!) so I quickly designed this awesome Boot Camp routine this morning when I woke up!

It was fun & quick & EXHAUSTING! There are 6 Rounds - so you can do all 6 if you have time! We only had time for 4 but that was enough for us anyway!!

I highly encourage you to try this workout because it will NOT disappoint!! And If you DO try it, let me know what you think!!!

What are you doing to stay active this weekend???
