Week 2, Speed Proving Grounds@shiftshop! Oh my, in my @thechrisdowning voice. 😜😁let’s just say, that I kicked my own ass 🍑 today. This week was struggle. On Wednesday during the work out I pulled or tightened up a muscle in my hip flexor. It took two days, with some rolling and Beachbody recovery to make my my hip flexor muscle feel better today. However, I wasn’t 100% ☹️ But, I pushed through it. Maryland had it’s first snowfall 🌧❄️ yesterday and it caused all kinds of chaos. So, to err on the side of caution, we did not have a live stream class, so instead we held a virtual class. I will be honest knowing that these ladies were on the other end of my iPad as I streamed today’s work out 💪🏼 I don’t I wouldn’t of made it. I know, I would have stopped. I am sure they heard me huffing and puffing. Every now and then shouting out motivations to them, was really also shouting out motivations to myself, so I wouldn’t stop. 🛑 One of the main reasons why I love beach body on demand, is we can stream our workouts from our living room, from a hotel room or from our studio. But having a tribe like these ladies here, is knowing you never have to do it alone. ❤️❤️Thanks ladies for keeping me accountable 💕 Have a great Friday! #beachbodycoach#beachbodyondemand#lovemytribe#strongertogether#weightlossjourney#weightloss#fifty#fitatfifty#accountability#dogmomlife
If you want results then do what it takes. Do you know what concistancy means? I didn't know the meaning if it until i decided i had to make a change in my life. When i started do things i had never done repetitively ( like drinking water everyday, eating less processed foods, reading labels of the foods i was consuming, using supplements to help my digestion...) i saw results. The results came from not giving up on doing this everyday even when i didn't see a change instantly. BE PATIENT , change dosen't happen over night and you certainly wont get the dream body in a few weeks or months. I WILL TAKE TIME! So when i say be concistant i mean eat clean for a period of time, train for a period of time, make sacrifies for a certain period of time , be dedicated to your goals and you WILL get results. Don't do it for a week and tell me it dosen't work... it does truth is your just not committed enough.
My friend Heather shares! “There is no magic pill, magic drink, or magic coffee that is going to give you the "perfect" body! What I can tell you though is that life is about choosing day to day what you're going to do with it. Choosing to get your rest, choosing to eat the right way, choosing to get off the couch and MOVE! •
What I have with these supplements is a tool in my tool belt, what I have balances my fatigue, energy levels & hormones, fills in the gaps where I lack in nutrition and stabilizes my blood sugar so my body can function properly. I find so many people looking for a quick fix and let me assure you we did not get unhealthy in 30 days, we have a lifetime of toxins built-up so I have chosen this system to help for THE REST OF TIME! I will not put a number on health, it is and will be an every single day thing for me. I'm not stopping now, I've got goals! •
About a month ago I started replacing one meal a day with our delicious shakes! I was happy with my results before I started, but I've definitely leaned up since I started drinking the shakes daily!” .
The easiest meal ever (or the laziest 😋)!!! The best way to eat a good amount of proteins: soybeans. The total amount of calories for this meal can change depending on how much soybeans you want to eat... Let's say that for 100g of it, you have almost 17g of protein but just 170 calories! For this recipe I used:
📍100g of boiled soybeans
📍200g of courgettes
📍200g of Pleurotus mushrooms 📍soy sauce
Then you just have to saute everything in the pan (no oil required).
😊voila... Literally 10 minutes of preparation!!

Good morning 😄 Starting my day out right...@starbucks and Chocolate (Yogurt) 😍 What's your go to breakfast?? I'm daydreaming of Fall days 🍁 In the upper Midwest we don't really get Fall...it's Summer than Winter ❄ The picture in the background I took last year and made it into a canvas (I love photography) ❤
What's your favorite whole food snack?
Check out this snack list I'm featured in by Reader's Digest to find out mine!
It isn't silly to say that the amount of time it took you to get out of shape, it will take a similar time to get back into shape. If you never were in shape to begin with, then enjoy the process. It'll be worth it 😊🍗
When I started this I had already come down from a number I hadn’t been at in over 6 years 147lbs. I was down to 142 in the first picture back in August.
Taking that first step was so hard!
With the anxiety over-eating, working to make end’s meet, worrying about how to get my son the help he needs, moving, living under stressful circumstances, late nights spent praying and crying (and binging on food for comfort), going to my 8-5 that was a good job but had nothing to do with my passion and what I’m really good at, suffering a concussion because of a crazy person that assaulted me, losing my job because of it, severe lack of motivation and discipline.... what a hot mess that was on my health and weight!
I have every excuse in the book to over eat, be depressed and stressed, and for a couple of months I believed it all! Until I started my recovery journey and turned it into a recovery of health journey!
I have a goal and with it comes sacrifice, pushing on the days you don’t want to, getting proactive and making a plan so you can have success! But it won’t happen IF YOU DON’T START NOW!
Since I decided to start and COMMIT truly, I have felt more balanced, happy, SUPER ENERGETIC, wake up ready to tackle the day(even Mondays) and it has set the foundation for the building of OTHER GREAT habits!
The BEST part?
My son LOVES this new me, he JOINS me on the healthy eating and exercises (because they are fun and the food is yummy) and I GET TO HELP OTHERS feel THIS GREAT!
I am looking for 10 superstar WOMEN who are at their witt’s end and just NEED to take control of their lives, health, finances, weight and SANITY!
IF you want to hop on this bandwagon with me, the doors are open and I WANT YOUUUU IN MY TRIBE! Send me a message with your email and a 🙋🏼♀️ and we can talk girl!
There Is Nothing Magical About Intermittent Fasting
Fasting only works because by reducing the hours in the day you’re allowed to eat, you end up with less time to eat like an asshole by default.
And by causing you to eat like less of an asshole, you end up in a calorie deficit and you lose fat.
Magic? Not so much.
Intermittent fasting may work for some, but for the majority of people, it’s not a good idea.
One of the major keys to success with a fat loss plan is sustainability.
For the majority of people, starving yourself for 16+ hours every day then binging for a few hours isn’t a sustainable approach.
Whichever diet or way of eating you choose should be something you intend to do for the rest of your life.
If you develop habits that work for you on one diet, and then that diet ends, guess what?
All the habits you developed are gone and you’re back to eating like an asshole and all the weight you lost comes crawling back.
You need to think about the diet AFTER the diet.
If you look at the diet as a short-term change, you’re only going to get short-term results.
Is what you’re doing right now sustainable for life?
