Refresh Challenge Group Post

Lets face it, no matter how healthy we think we eat, how much we think we exercise, there is always room for improvement!

Every time I challenge myself to keep track of my food, I notice big jumps in my fitness, my energy levels, and I just feel better. I know personally how easy it is to get off track. It starts with a slice of pizza here and a bite of a cookie there, an extra bit of peanut butter in my shake, a slight indulgence at a get together with friends and before you know it, you feel like you’re carrying around a food baby! All the working out in the world isn’t going to take away that bloated & sluggish feeling you get when you over eat! I know this because I totally did this the week after our recent trip to Vegas.


As Tracy and I sat brainstorming ideas for our next support group, this amazing idea hit us!

How about we kick off August with the brand new 3-Day Refresh Program and incorporate it into a 30 day clean eating & Shakeology group! YES! This is perfect! Ok, so why is this perfect you might ask?!

The 3 day refresh is designed to give you fast, clean, and efficient weight loss. You can quickly drop a few pounds, break a bad habit and get back on track! It’s 3 shakes a day, a fiber drink, plenty of water, fresh fruits, veggies, and healthy fats so that you keep your energy and your metabolism going. It is not a juice or fasting diet but a healthy diet that is going to give your body nutrition vs starvation.


Then, once we jump start our weight loss and clear out the gunk, we can preserve our results and not slide back into old habits by continuing on for 30 days of clean eating! I don’t want you to do the 3 day refresh and just go back to how it was before you started. I want you to maintain and make progress. So for 30 days, I am going to give you a great meal plan, share how easy it is to prepare family friendly healthy meals, teach you the importance of proper nutrition, the fundamentals of clean eating and how to fuel your body for energy and not comfort.

So how does this work? Well if I am not your Team Beachbody Coach then you would make me your coach. Contact me below by filling out the application to join! You are required to purchase the 3-day refresh challenge pack from me as your coach. Then, you are accepted into my closed online support group that will begin on the 4th of August.


We will start with the 3 Day Refresh then 30 days of replacing 1 meal a day with Shakeology, healthy eating and any exercise of your choice. It does not have to be a Beachbody Fitness Program, although I encourage you to do some form of physical activity for 30 minutes a day 5 days a week! :) (21 Day Fix, P90X3, Piyo, T25).

Each day you will log into the group for your tip of the day, daily motivation, inspiration and accountability. I will share recipes along with ways to handle late night munchies, sugar cravings, emotional eating, temptations and more. You will be accountable each day to report with the group your food and your workouts!

At the end of the 30 days we will measure our progress, submit our results and in 30 days you will have kicked bad habits, introduced new healthy habits and be on your way to creating life long health and wellness for you and your family!

Does this sound like something you would like to do?

If so, join me by completing the application below.

Then, create a free account so that I am your Team Beachbody Coach.


If you are anxious to get started then purchase your 3-day refresh challenge pack here and make sure to message me and I will add you to the group and get you up and running!


Either way, the cut off for registration is Wednesday July 30th! So don’t wait until the last minute or you might miss an opportunity to truly transform your health and feel your best this summer!

Stop saying tomorrow, stop putting off the small changes because you never know what tomorrow will bring! You only have today, your health, your choices and this one life! It’s so precious and I can’t say enough about how important it is to take care of what we have!

So whether you need a total overhaul or just a few tweaks now is your time! From me to you, parent to parent, business owner to business owner trust me YOU have TIME to put yourself FIRST for 30 minutes each day!

Thanksgiving Quinoa Stuffing

by Deryl on November 26, 2013

It’s nearly impossible to think about Thanksgiving without Thanksgiving stuffing. The problem for those who are health conscious is that stuffing is often loaded with high amounts of refined carbs, fat, calories and salt.This stuffing recipe is one of our favorites, in fact we like it so much it is not just reserved for Thanksgiving, but is enjoyed all year.

Thanksgiving Quinoa Stuffing


2 cups water

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

2 cups quinoa

4 Tbsp. olive oil

1 cup celery, chopped

1 cup mushrooms

1/2 cup carrots, peeled and chopped

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

1 cup squash, peeled and diced

2 stalks green onions, chopped

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

2 Tbsp. fresh mint, chopped

1 tsp. dried ground sage

1 tsp. dried thyme

Light oil cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large pot, bring water and chicken broth to a boil. Add the quinoa and bring back to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to a simmer for about 20 minutes. Once the quinoa has absorbed the water, take off stove and allow to cool. Add 3 Tbsp. olive oil to a pan. When hot, add squash and carrots and sauté until they begin to brown, then add celery, mushrooms, and green onions. Let the vegetables brown, and then remove from heat and mix into the quinoa. Add walnuts, cranberries, sage, thyme, parsley, mint, and 1 Tbsp. of oil into mixture. Spray a thin coating of cooking spray onto a 9-by-13-inch baking pan, and smooth mixture into pan. Cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes. Then, remove the foil and bake for another 5 minutes, until brown.

Why I love P90X3 . . .

Tony Horton
Creator of P90X®, P90X2®, and P90X3™

You know what I keep hearing lately? “Tony, your programs are awesome, they make me look incredible. But an hour every day? Come on . . .”

I get it. You want the results, and you’re willing to do the work, but your freakin’ schedule is jam-packed.

And you know what I have to say to that? GOOD.

Because that’s what challenged me to roll up my sleeves and set out to create something truly revolutionary . . .

P90X3′s Muscle Acceleration–the ultimate EXCUSE-BUSTER

I took everything I learned from P90X and P90X2—coupled it with new science that shows intense 30-minute workouts can get you in better shape faster—and slammed it all into overdrive.

The result? Short, targeted, intense workouts that take just 30 minutes—but leave you looking like you’ve been tearing it up in the gym all day, every day.

You ready to burn fat, build muscle, and get ripped fast?

Shakeology and Visalus – What’s the Difference?

October 22, 2013

I rarely do side-by-side comparisons, primarily because I don’t want to seem critical of any other company or their products. Therefore, before I go any further, I want to say that I know several Visalus reps personally and most of them are good people who really do want to help people to lose weight. I […]

Mastering the Basics

In 1959 at the age of 45, Vince Lombardi became a head coach in the NFL for the very first time. His team: The Green Bay Packers. Their record for the past ten years was abysmal. They finished the 1958 season 1-11-1. That’s one win, eleven losses and one tie. They were demoralized to say […]
