Shopping list for the 21 Day Fix

Shopping List for the 21 Day Fix

You should always go to the grocery store with a list of foods to buy – otherwise, you will find yourself in aisles you don’t belong, looking at foods you don't need, and then spending more than planned! (sound familiar?)
Having a PLAN and will make a HUGE difference and it really is the best way to stay on track with healthy eating and save money!
For the 21 Day Fix nutrition plan, you should be thriving on whole foods. This means the majority of your grocery shopping will be done around the outer perimeter of the grocery store, which is always where all the good stuff is displayed.
I use this grocery list for the 21 Day Fix by printing it out and making a note in the margins of how many servings of each container I needed for the week. Check off each item as you add them the cart.

If you are looking to buy the 21-day Fix program with workouts and color-coded containers, you can CLICK HERE to buy it from the company with a full money-back guarantee and warranty on all DVDs

Inspire others while becoming your best self!

{Beachbody Coaching}
INSPIRING OTHERS AS YOU BECOME YOUR BEST SELF!

Becoming a Beachbody coach is a very important decision,
and when taken seriously, it can change your life!

It has changed mine in countless ways.

AND YES, it IS a legit business opportunity!

Not as a salesperson, but as a service-giver, friend, helper,
enabler of dreams, listener, problem-solver, mentor, health
advocate, goal-seeker, and much much more!

I became a coach initially to get the discount on Shakeology, the healthiest most nutrient-dense
super food shake. I began losing weight and feeling the best I had felt in YEARS! This new-found
excitement for life and personal progress was exciting and so it came natural to share with others
what I was doing to improve my health and my life. 

People needed my help. They saw my progress and wanted
little ol' me to help them get results of their own. As I continued
to share my desire to be healthy and fit, others came to me as
they were ready to start their own journey, and because I was a
Beachbody coach, I had the tools to help them reach their goals.
It became obvious that the more I improved my own life, the more
I was able to guide others. EVERYONE WINS!

I want you to understand that as you improve your own life, you inspire
others whether you are aware of it or not. The ripple effect that you have
on others would likely surprise you! And what better motivation than to know that the more people you help,
the better your business becomes! You can flourish in so many ways, and your income will grow alongside
the impact that you have on the lives of others. You choose how much effort you want to put into helping
others and you can make anywhere from a part-time to a full-time income. 
All while working from home--or anywhere you choose.

When I signed up, I actually had no clue what the potential for income was. I never thought that I could
possibly become CEO of my own business and make enough money to actually make a significant
difference in my family's income. I was wrong.

I learned that the more I committed to helping others, the more my
income was growing. I was becoming a leader and learning new
things to improve my skills and mindset. My attitude toward life was
changing for the better and I realized I had DREAMS for my life that
I had almost given up on. Dreams that seemed almost impossible
before were coming TRUE! Matching my husband's full-time income and
Beachbody even paid for our family vacation to Walt Disney World,
and another cruise vacation for my husband and I! Best "business trip" ever! 

I am humbled to know that just because I decided to take action on improving my own life, I can now SHARE 
what I LOVE, and HELP OTHERS change their lives physically, emotionally, spiritually, and financially,
I am able to be at home with my 3 children while making a significant income. 

The best part? It's continues to GROW. The potential is limitless and my efforts are duplicated as
I help more people. Another BONUS? Beachbody GIVES us customers! Yes, those people that see an INSANITY,
P90X, Body Beast, PiYO, 21 day FIX (etc...) infomercials and order online, are given free coaches to help them.
I actually have over 500 customer leads from Beachbody, and I get commissions when they order a
Beachbody product!

Yes, it has taken time to grow, effort to improve myself physically and mentally, and persistence in striving
for small measurable goals, but being able to do something I am PROUD of and that I LOVE and am
PASSIONATE about each day, on my own schedule and in the
comfort of my OWN HOME.....It's indescribable and priceless.

The excitement grows each time we have a new coach join our
team! There is something so powerful about seeing others take
the initiative to get their life and health on the right track and commit
to improving themselves each day, and then paying it forward to
inspire and help others.

In becoming resilient to shame


Reading in my book about being resilient to shame.....

"SHAME IS THAT WARM FEELING THAT WASHES OVER US, MAKING US FEEL FLAWED, AND NEVER GOOD ENOUGH."

Makes me realize how much shame I have. 

If you think I am on this health journey for vanity reasons, I will straight up say it....
YOU ARE WRONG. Because no matter how much weight I lose or how "toned" I get, I will never have what society thinks is "the perfect body". That's not WHY I workout and eat healthy. I just want to LIVE life and be healthy, and help others do the same!

Sharing this pic is completely out of my comfort zone, and to tell you the truth, I have NEVER EVER shared a forward-facing before and after photo. Heck, I don't even show my scar in person to family, friends, or acquaintances. The stretch marks from having 3 children doesn't make it ANY better either. But I ALWAYS hide it. WHY?

Because of shame.

I have been ashamed of this scar my ENTIRE LIFE. I have let it define, me, embarrass me, make me feel less than human, make me feel not good enough, and so many other destructive emotions that I can't describe.

For as long as I can remember.

But I am done with the shame, because it doesn't have power over me.

In this book I also read, "THE LESS WE TALK ABOUT SHAME, THE MORE CONTROL IT HAS OVER OUR LIVES"

but even more powerful:
"SHAME NEEDS 3 THINGS TO GROW OUT OF CONTROL IN OUR LIVES; SECRECY, SILENCE, AND JUDGEMENT. WHEN SOMETHING SHAMING HAPPENS AND WE KEEP IT LOCKED UP, IT FESTERS AND GROWS. IT CONSUMES US. WE NEED TO SHARE OUR EXPERIENCE.

SHAME HAPPENS BETWEEN PEOPLE, AND IT HEALS BETWEEN PEOPLE. IF WE CAN FIND SOMEONE WHO HAS EARNED THE RIGHT TO HEAR OUR STORY, WE NEED TO TELL IT.

SHAME LOSES POWER WHEN IT IS SPOKEN.

IN THIS WAY, WE NEED TO CULTIVATE OUR STORY TO LET GO OF SHAME, AND WE NEED TO DEVELOP SHAME RESILIENCE IN ORDER TO CULTIVATE OUR STORY."

That, my friends, is WHY I am sharing this. So I can let go of my shame and MOVE the freak ON.  I am not even sure this will impact anyone else other than me. I have so many supportive friends here, so that is why I am taking the initiative to determine that YOU are have earned the right to hear my story, and I only hope I can earn the right to hear yours. 

Oh, and this isn't the end of my story either.

If this impacted you at all, don't hesitate to like, comment or share. I am serious. SHARE away and maybe this will help someone out there that is suffering silently in shame  I understand

You are worthy of love and greatness! TODAY!

Do you ever have those moments of feeling like a failure? Feeling like you aren't "good enough" for whatever reason? Then read further and take this to heart <3 

This month I am in an online book club and we are reading 
The Gifts of Imperfection by Brené Brown

I had heard great things about this book from a few different people, and I KNOW that the description of the book is something I struggle with (Embracing who you are and learning to love yourself despite the doubts you have while trying to live up to who you think you are "supposed to be"). 
I knew it was time to read THIS book and I am already learning a lot :)

In the chapter we are discussing now, she talked about how we all create "worthiness prerequisites" for ourselves. We make ourselves believe that we re not worthy until....(such and such happens) or we are not good enough until (insert event or goal)..... 

>> I'll put myself out there and share a bit of my list of "worthiness prerequisites" that I have subconsciously placed upon myself, and in sharing, I just hope that this will help you think about YOURS. Because once you recognize them, you can learn to let them go.

> I'll be worthy when I reach my goal weight
> I'll be worthy when I am more outgoing
> I'll be worthy when I can control my bad eating habits 100%
> I'll be worthy when I have a new house that is completely finished and ALWAYS clean (geeez, maybe when I am 80 and my grand kids are all grown)
> I'll be worthy if everyone likes me
> I'll be worthy when I help at least 10 others lose over 20 pounds
> I'll be worthy when I'm making a certain amount of money
> I'll be worthy when when I am completely organized
>I'll be worthy if I have a flat stomach

These are things I tell myself without even realizing it.

The author says in the book >>>>

"Worthy now. Not if. Not when. We are worthy of love and belonging NOW. Right this minute. As is."

Isn't that RELIEVING? Worthy NOW. TODAY. No matter what.

So, whatever YOUR list is, just know that you are enough RIGHT NOW. AS IS. Wherever you are reading this from, you are worthy of love and belonging just as you are in this very moment this very day.


Don't wait to be GREAT. Be GREAT today because YOU are worthy of GREATNESS <3

Conscious eating

CONSCIOUS EATING
When you put food and drink in your mouth, do you eat with intent and purpose?
Conscious eating is about being AWARE of the foods you are consuming, and consume food with specific positive intentions. 

Perhaps you have noticed yourself mindlessly eating out of stress, boredom, fear, or for another reason. Or during a meal, you eat too fast without even really thinking about the food you are eating. 

With these habits already formed, it may be a challenge to transition into conscious eating. 
However, for your health, it is a challenge worth taking, and after a while you can create new lasting habits that will better serve you. 

  SOME REASONS TO CREATE CONSCIOUS EATING HABITS
Improve heath and well-being
Reduce stress
Lose weight
Save money
Food tastes better
Create a more pleasant eating experience
Learn to listen to the needs of your body
Recognize triggers and the meanings behind your body's cravings
Recognize actual hunger and thirst
Have more respect for your body and the digestion process
Learn to control your appetite and stop eating when you are full
Create greater appreciation for your food and health


Now that you have an idea as to WHY you would want to create the habit of conscious eating, now we can talk about HOW.

First: DECIDE
Decide how you can benefit from it, and then decide to make it happen. 


Start with the food you already have. Take a look at what is in the fridge and in those cupboards. 
Eliminate the food that isn't serving your health. 
When creating our grocery list, carefully consider the importance of the foods there and 
whether or not they are WORTH consuming.

YOUR BODY is VALUABLE. Treat it as so, and it will last.

YOU CHOOSE WHAT YOU PUT IN YOUR MOUTH!

Simple as that. YOU are in control!

If you feel your eating habits are out of control, it's not too late to begin making small changes every day and reverse those habits that are not serving you or your health. 


Now lets say you have the healthy foods your body can thrive on. 
NEXT you COMMIT to pay more attention to your body, your hunger, your cravings, the habits you have that make you want to eat, habits of where you usually eat, the triggers that send you to the kitchen... etc. ALL DAY. BE AWARE of your actions and thoughts when it comes to food.

Put more thought into your meal planning and preparation. T
his doesn't necessarily mean more TIME, just more thought. Every meal should have a purpose. 

Try to find a sense of calm when you are preparing and eating your food.
Take three or four slow, deep breaths to center yourself before you take that first bite.
Take a moment to give thanks for the food you are about to eat. 
When eating, remember to SLOW DOWN! Try to make eating a pleasant experience. 

Remember, digestions begins in your mouth. Eat slowly, chew your food thoroughly, and pay attention to your food while you chew. Try putting your utensils down while you are chewing so you can focus on what is in your mouth rather than hurrying to get the next bite.

After you finish, pay attention to the way you FEEL. 
How does the food you just ate make you feel?  
This will be a way of determining what foods your body likes and what foods you may want to steer clear of in the future. 




Once these practices become habit, you will likely notice yourself  looking forward to meals and appreciating your food more. Conscious eating also relieves stress and will realign your own personal energy. Your body is worth every effort to move toward optimum health and well-being!
