Lose 10 lbs by Halloween! Free 5-Day Clean Eating Challenge!

Oops. I got so into the 21 Day Fix that I did it for 28 days ... so this is going to be a week later than I originally planned!
I am delighted to announce I’m sharing another 5-day clean eating challenge with all of you! This one is from Focus T25 and it’s your chance to get a FREE glimpse at the meal plan accompanying this phenomenal workout program. We start October 27th and space is very limited as previous clean-eating challengers have already reserved spots.
The menu plan is GOR-geous and includes grilled fish tacos, turkey, goat cheese and avocado rolls, chef salads, lemon dill halibut and lots, lots more! I give you the grocery list and the meal plan. You eat delicious food and commit to 30 minutes of exercise a day. Are you ready to lose up to 10 lbs by Halloween? You can reach me at or via e-mail at

Carrot Juice FTW!

Good morning!

I was reading an article about the many benefits of carrot juice earlier this week, and I couldn't wait to share the information with you.

  • Lends a natural, golden glow to your complexion. (In moderation, folks, let's not get crazy! I drink about 24 oz a week.)
  • When you have carrot juice around 20 minutes before eating a meal, it will serve to help stimulate your body’s secretion of digestive juices.
    • This explains why it is wildly popular in Europe, often served as an aperitif for breakfast with a teaspoon of olive oil.
Ok now let's get down to the nitty gritty:

  • Vitamin A. When you have a cup of carrot juice, you are consuming 340 percent of your daily recommended dose of vitamin A.

  • Potassium. In addition to this vitamin, you will also get 18 percent of your recommended dose of potassium in addition to seven percent of your recommended daily value of iron.

  • Vitamin C. Just 100g carrot juice can contain as much as 3 milligrams of vitamin C, a vitamin that is essential for the immune system.

  • Vitamin E. You will also get 0.3 milligrams of vitamin E with each 100g, which is necessary for the synthesis of hormones and to maintain healthy cells.

  • B Vitamins. Carrot juice is also an excellent source of several B vitamins. For 100g fresh carrot juice, it provides 0.01 milligrams of vitamin B1 which is necessary for the nervous system and brain to function properly. It also contains 0.02 milligrams of vitamin B2 which is required to maintain healthy vision and metabolism.

  • Not a huge fan of chugging a glass of juiced carrots? Try adding a packet of Vanilla Shakeology to to the mix - it's like having carrot cake without the calories OR guilt.

    If you're interested in trying Shakeology or have ideas for other blog posts, drop me a message! You can leave one here or at I look forward to hearing from you soon!

    21 Day Fix Challenge Group - September 22!

    I’m SO excited!! You wanna know why? The 21 Day Fix is on SALE this month!!! I’m having surgery [again] in mid-September and won’t be able to get to the gym for at least a few weeks. (We’ll talk about how apoplectic I am about this another time.) I was planning to do the 21 Day Fix to keep myself accountable and guarantee I continue to lose, NOT gain any weight while I’m recovering. Plus I love the 21 Day Fix workouts. LOVE. So…

    Does anyone want to join me for 21-Day Fix Challenge from September 22nd – October 10th? This is a great program for anyone who wants to lose some serious weight and inches without counting calories and dieting. I’ve done this program before and it’s easy-to-follow portion control and one thirty-minute workout a day. That’s IT! And if you’re like me and prep your food ahead of your incredibly busy weeks, pack your lunches for work, and like to EAT, this is PERFECT for you!

    So, who wants to join me? I would love the company! Send me a friend request at and let's chat!

    September is for getting in SHAPE!

    Hi everyone!

    I haven’t run a Facebook challenge group in a while, and I missed it so much I decided to do TWO in September! Both of these groups are 100% FREE. They are private. And they are FUN!

    Space is limited in each group so don’t be shy – speak up early!

    Monday, September 1 – Friday, September 5
    Want to kick start your weight loss? Get hot hot hot for the weekend? As part of Turbofire, Chalene Johnson has created an amazing 5-day plan that delivers serious results and energy! I’ll provide the shopping list and meal plans, PLUS a 5-day supply of Shakeology for all participants. That’s how much I believe in this program. I KNOW it works. I’m a walking advertisement. 

    September 1 – September 30
    30-Day Arm Challenge
    As you know, I’ve been lifting for about 2 months. The biggest change, by far, has been in my arms and shoulders – not to mention my posture. My arms look 15 years younger. I have muscle definition. It is SEXY!! Join me for a 30-day challenge that will tone, define and strengthen your guns. Don’t have weights? Don’t worry – canned goods and gallons of milk work wonderfully as kettle- and dumbbells! Don’t have much time? It will take less than 20 minutes a day – 5 in the beginning!

    Once again, both of these groups are free of charge. Their success depends on your commitment to accountability, being involved and most importantly, having fun. Nothing is worth doing if you can’t enjoy it!

    Contact me at or friend me on Facebook at and let's do this!!

    Baked Avocado with Bacon and Eggs

    Do you love eggs? Avocadoes? Then I have the recipe for you! (Yes, the recipe has bacon in it, but who doesn’t like bacon? If you don’t, please slowly back away from my blog before I notice you.) This is a delicious and healthy meal packed with nutrition.

    A few helpful hints – look for larger avocadoes and go ahead and buy small or medium eggs. If you’re using large or extra-large eggs, you’re going to end up with a mess. Trust me on this. Really. Just trust me.

    Editor’s Note: Make some bacon ahead of time and keep in the fridge – nuke it in the microwave for a few seconds to re-crisp.

    Baked Avocado with Bacon and Eggs
    Serves 2

    1 avocado
    2 pieces cooked bacon, crumbled
    2 small or medium-size eggs
    Olive oil or cooking spray
    Salt and pepper

    Preheat your oven to 425˚. Position a rack in the center of the oven.

    Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. Slice a tiny bit of the peel off the bottom so the halves rest on a baking sheet without wobbling. Using a small spoon, scoop out enough of the flesh to fit the egg. Spritz the underside with olive oil or cooking spray and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Crack one egg into each avocado and top with crumbled bacon. Season with salt and freshly-ground pepper.

    Cook for 10-16 minutes, depending on the size of the egg and how cooked you want your eggs (begin checking at 10 minutes).

    Don’t be afraid to create your own variation – you can add some chopped tomatoes, peppers, scallions, feta or parsley to the avocadoes – anything you want. Get cooking!
