Good Morning and Happy Friday! Can you believe we are already a week in to June?!! The local schools around my area are done and Summer vacation has begun! If I'm being honest, this past month has been sketchy for me. Between the normal craziness, some birthday parties / picnics, dance recitals, the temptations have been EVERYWHERE! Yes I have indulged in a few things here and there and yes, maybe some "not so healthy" things, but, I am right back on track!
So, how about a meal plan? Something that I do every weekend is sit down and create a plan for the week. While I do that, I make my grocery list and head to the grocery store! Yes, it does take a little time to do, but, the week goes smoothly and I don't have to think "what should I make for dinner?" each night. Plus, I'm not digging through the pantry and fridge wondering what to eat for lunch and snacks. Below is the plan that I have been following this past week. I have to say, my girls are pretty excited to make their own Mini Pita Pizza's tonight!
21 Day Fix Extreme Meal Plan
It's been a few weeks since I've posted a progress update and I've add some new recipes to my list!
First up, I made a really good slow cooker Pomegranate Chicken last month. I originally served it with with some veggies and brown rice but I also made some extra to use in a chicken salad the following day! It was delicious!
Next up, we tried some Nacho Soup! This was a recipe loved by the entire family! It had just enough spice and also made for great leftovers!
Third, I made some good ole Sloppy Joe's! Except I didn't use a seasoning packet ;)
I didn't even tell my husband it was ground turkey instead of beef and he didn't say a word!
Last but certainly not least, I made some Baked Oatmeal Muffins! Boy were these good!! My 3 and 5 year old daughters really liked them too! I did add a few chocolate chips to some of the muffins for a small treat.

Always have a plan!
Whew!! That's a lot of recipes! I hope you find one that you like! I'm sure it's no surprise to hear that nutrition is 80% of your success when it comes to being healthy and losing weight. My tip is to ALWAYS HAVE A PLAN! Whether you are home, at work, or traveling for the day, having a plan in place will help to keep you on track.
I'm sure this goes without saying, but, a staple in my house is also my Shakeology. Shakeology provides me with my daily dose of nutrients. It's filled with superfoods, probiotics, and just TONS of vitamins and minerals that you would most likely not otherwise get. I love the natural energy that I get from Shakeology and it also has greatly helped in curbing my cravings. It's great to have a guilt-free meal that tastes like a treat!

On to my workouts! So, I decided a couple of weeks ago to begin incorporating PiYo back in to my schedule! I can't pass up on my regular 21 Day Fix Extreme workouts, so, I decided to do a hybrid of both! I totally forgot how effective PiYo is! It still amazes me at how sweaty and great I feel after doing a low impact, high intensity PiYo workout that does not involve jumping around! Below are a couple of different PiYo moves from the videos in case you are interested. It's actually on a deep discount price for about another week! Plus, I have a new Fit for Summer group starting on June 22nd that you can join if you'd like!
Overall, I am feeling GREAT! I am loving the every other day change of pace with my workouts and also love that I can still incorporate my 21 Day Fix nutrition plans.
I know it would be nice to have some sort of magic spell that would make you lose weight and get healthy but guess what....THERE ISN'T ONE! It takes commitment, dedication, and hard work! Sure, you can do those quick fix diets that will help you drop weight in a short amount of time, but, you and I both know that they aren't healthy! Most quick fixes includes pills and starvation!
Never miss a Monday!
It takes 21 Days to create a habit. Once it's habit, you won't think twice about it! So, get in to the routine of eating healthy and daily exercise. I promise you won't regret it!
Work for it!
On MONDAY, JUNE 8TH, I am kicking off my 21 Day Summer Slim Down group! Everyone in the group will be using the 21 Day Fix or 21 Day Fix Extreme programs. A HUGE bonus to this is that BOTH of these programs are on a DEEP discount! They are the cheapest price that they will ever go! Either program is only $10 with a bag of Shakeology!
So, if you want to take advantage of this deal, you can do so with me as your Coach! I can get you hooked up in to my accountability group where you will be provided with support, motivation, accountability, meal plans, and summer vacation / traveling tips to help get you through! I have 3 MORE SPOTS left and would love for you to join!
My groups are for my personal customers so in order to join I would need to be your personal Coach! Click HERE to make that happen!
