3 Day Refresh: What exactly is in the program?

Last week, I shared a post about the 3-Day Refresh, Beachbody’s newest clean eating program. My package finally arrived Friday and as I’m going through the box, I thought it might be fun to share a video with what exactly comes in the box and another run-down of the program in case you missed last week’s post. I know, who would have thought after yesterday’s post and sharing my nervousness about making a video, that I would make another. 
Here I go, again!

Hopefully that gives a better understanding of the program and be on the lookout tomorrow for a new video. I started the 3 Day Refresh today and I’ll be sharing all my Day 1 experiences tomorrow. 
What do you think? Are you intrigued to try the 3 Day Refresh?

Why I Became A Coach (And My First Video!)

I know what you’re thinking. A Sunday post aside from Schweaty Sunday? Is that girl crazy? Nope. OK, well maybe a little but only the good kind of crazy. 
In any case, it’s Sunday and I have something to share with you. As you know I am a Beachbody Coach. One of the coaches on our team challenged everyone to create a video explaining why we all became a coach. I’m always up for a challenge, but making a video? This is out of my comfort zone, however, I knew I should do it. I have had a few people ask me that very question and if you’re going to be a coach and help others, it’s good for them to know you’re why.
I hope you enjoy! 

Now you know why I became a Beachbody coach and how my goal is to help you. Whether it’s through a new Beachbody program or not, that’s OK. I just want to help you achieve your health, fitness and nutrition goals. 
Your turn! Have you ever made a You Tube video? Were you nervous the first time?

Schweaty Sunday #6

Happy Sunday! How was everyone’s holiday weekend? Mine is going well, but I am SO excited for this week. Not only is today my last day of 21 Day Fix, I start PiYo tomorrow and I start the 3 Day Refresh tomorrow (be on the lookout for a post about it in the morning) but TJ and I will be celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary! 

But onto this week’s workouts, shall we? 


Oh Yoga Fix, how I needed you! It was a much needed active recovery day after a busy weekend with family in town.


And we’ve reached the final week of 21 Day Fix, which can only mean one thing: PiYo starts next week! I love 21 Day Fix but am SO excited about starting a new program that will help me with my half marathon training that begins in just 2 weeks!


One of the things I love about repeating workouts in workout programs like 21 Day Fix is that I can measure my improvement. Sometimes it’s the number of calories I burn, but today it was a particular move. I’m still horrible at push-ups and need to work on them, but today I noticed I did more “real” than I ever have before having to move to my knees. Progress!!!


Today’s workout was probably my favorite workout to date. Not because it was Lower Fix (and leg day is my favorite) but because Jordyn joined in for more than normal. I even snuck a little time away from the warm-up to catch a few pictures.


Today’s Pilates Fix workout was another workout where I could really see the progress I have made. My form is better than it has been and I felt great! And after pilates, we headed to the pool for a little family swim. It wasn’t anything crazy and there was a lot of just chilling out in the pool playing with Jordyn but I made sure to take some occassional breaks to swim while TJ played with her.


I had every intention on doing Shaun T’s Live 4th of July workout but right before it came on, my internet went out. It did come back but was spotty for a while so I gave up. However, I was glad I had already gotten some Cardio Fix beforehand so a workout was complete. The rest of my day focused on some one-on-one time with Jordyn since Dylan is still visiting his grandparents and TJ was working.


My last Dirty 30 workout. This is my favorite workout in the 21 Day Fix program. It doesn’t burn as many calories for me as others, like yesterday’s Cardio Fix but there’s something about the I love. TJ pretty much gave up on the program yesterday. He was SO close to finishing but his knees were really bothering him from a run he went on a few days ago, so he skipped out on it. This morning, I didn’t even ask him but I knew he was ready to be done with it, so I just did it on my own. That meant I got in a much earlier workout than I normally do, which I like. I love finishing my day’s workout by 8 or 9 am. It gets me pumped for the day.

How were your workouts for the week? Does how you eat affect your workouts? Do you workout with a partner and how do you like it? Talk about it in the comments below.

Happy 4th of July!

Good morning! Happy 4th of July everyone! Today, we get to celebrate this great country we call the USA!!! Today is day I like to spend with my family, and be grateful for all we have. I also like to take the time to thank our military. Without them, we wouldn’t be the country we are today. We wouldn’t have the luxuries we have. We wouldn’t have the freedom that they fought so hard for. Today, while you’re out celebrating, take time to thank those who fought for us, past and present. They are the ones who truly deserve today.
Today, I’ll be spending time with my favorite veteran soaking in the sun and the city, in what will most likely be our last 4th of July here in Savannah.
Stay healthy and within moderation!
How will you be spending your holiday? Any special plans or do you just plan on relaxing with the ones that mean the most?

3 Day Refresh

Can you believe the 4th of July is just 2 days away? I feel like 2014 is flying by. The year is already halfway over! That’s crazy! 

Seriously, with the 4th of July right round the corner, everyone is preparing for some fun outdoor cookouts and celebrations. The holidays tend to bring some unhealthy food choices, especially when coupled with friends and beer. But when the holidays are over, it’s time to get yourself back on track and there’s no better way to do that than with Beachbody’s newest program, 3-Day Refresh

The 3-Day Refresh is an easy-to-follow, low calorie 3 day clean eating program designed to offer quick weight loss, help break bad eating habits, improve irregularity, and make you feel lighter and healthier overall. It’s great for helping to get rid of all the processed foods you’ve eaten over the holiday or as part of monthly routine to hep get your month started right each month. 
What does Beachbody say about it?

The 3-Day Refresh is a scientifically designed program that helps you
fast-track your weight loss, kick-start healthy eating, and get a clean
break from bad nutrition habits. 3-Day Refresh is a simple, straightforward
program that will help cleanse your body and improve the way you feel—
without starving yourself. Unlike juice cleanses or liquid fasts which tend
to be high in sugar and low in protein (leaving you feeling weak, hungry,
and sluggish), this easy-to-follow program helps support your metabolism
while nourishing your vital organs.
For 3 days you’ll follow a program of 3 shakes a day, a fiber drink, plenty
of filtered water, plus a wide array of fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy
fats throughout the day to keep your energy and metabolism going.

You might be wondering why choose the 3 Day Refresh over a traditional juice and short term cleanses. Most other cleanses don’t supply adequate nutrition and thus promote muscle loss instead of fat loss. They also tend not to have enough protein and fiber and have too much sugar which can lead to rebounds. They also can cost more, anywhere from $25-47 a day more. The 3 Day Refresh is just $23 a day. Just think about if you went out to eat for every meal for 3 days. It could cost the same or more.

What are my personal thoughts? I’ll let you know soon. Mine is on the way and I will be getting started as soon as it arrives. Follow me through each day as I go through the cleanse and report to you how I feel, and what I think.

Still not convinced? Check out the video.

I am pretty pumped for this program to arrive. If you’re convinced, I’d love for you to do it with me. Click here to get the Challenge Pack, a fantastic deal that includes a month of Shakeology to help you continue your weight loss and healthy eating after the 3 days and the 3 Day Refresh for just $140.
