Did you know you are more likely to success with a fitness routine and also have WAYYY more fun when you are doing it with another person?!? This is exactly why our Super Trainer Tony Horton, who is also the creator of P90X and 22 Minute Hard Corps, created his FIRST partner workout called Double Time!
There is something extra special about this program that gets me excited though!! I love when fitness and a healthy lifestyle is centered around family, and THIS is a perfect opportunity for you to workout with your husband/wife, children, or even friends!! This is a way to keep each other accountable, reach huge fitness and health goals, but have fun and bond at the same time!!!
Even at 33 weeks pregnant, I am able to get in a workout and move without feeling exhausted and overworked!
What is Double Time?
Double Time™ is Tony Horton’s first fitness program that makes living a healthier lifestyle something you can do with another person. You and your spouse, a friend, or your child will take on daily partner workouts and healthy eating for 30 days. Just having that person around is going to give you both motivation to complete the entire program and help you build stronger bonds along the way! After all, studies show that you’re more likely to put in effort and to succeed with a fitness routine when you do it with a partner. Double Time™ is a 30-day program with total-body workouts (all 32 minutes or less) that feel more like play and less like work!

I love making oatmeal bake recipes because they are so easy and perfect for the family or even if you have some company!
So I actually made this for my husband’s army crew that came back from a training recently and it was a hit! My kids even loved it and I have to be honest, they get a little picky when it comes to oatmeal recipes because they love the oatmeal in a packet!
PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL BAKE
This recipe is great to have re heated or even to eat cold!!
Would love your feedback if you try it!
My hubby and I were making a meal plan for the week and were thinking of different recipes that we can have as a family! My hubs suggested I make “Dirty Red Beans and Rice”…. and I had NO idea what this was… so I did some research and it sounded pretty interesting! I found a recipe and then hubs decided to add something else.. Kielbasa!! So we went for it, and it turned out really really good!!!
Hope you guys can make this and enjoy it yourself!

Hey guys!! So I have realize how inconsistent I have been with my blog, so I’m committing to getting back on track with sharing my journey and tips with you!! As a mom of young kids, military wife and family, and stay at home mom, I know many can relate that life gets crazy, but want to share that keeping that healthy lifestyle is so important and doable even when lives are crazy busy!!!
So I am starting to get more strict with my fitness and prepping for my 3rd figure competition! I am 14 weeks out and am further behind from my last shows, but since I have experience, I’m confident that I can really cut quicker than my first two shows since I know how my body responds.
So here is my meal plan for this week!! This first half of the week, I did incorporate peanut butter, but the second part, I am switching over to PB2. I need to see what changes I can make in 2 weeks to judge if I can have any cheat meals or not or how much of a cheat I can have!
For my workouts, I am using my home fitness programs with Beachbody, along with running and the gym!! I love to mix up my workouts…so getting a variety will help keep my metabolism going and prevent me from hitting a plateau.
Mornings I am doing fasting cardio for 20 minutes 3-4 days a week. Then in the late morning, early afternoon, I am doing other Body Beast, or the gym so I am isolating each muscle group when I am lifting. With Body beast, I am doing bulk phase of the workouts.
As time gets closer, I will be doing HIIT training 3 days a week and some type of fasting cardio 6 days a week, but not quite yet since I’m more focused on muscle mass and too much cardio too soon will mess up my game plan lol.
One of my favorite parts about this prep is I get to have my husband prepping with me!! Well, he’s not doing a show per say, but he has goals so were going to kick butt together and help each other through the cravings, hangriness, and pushing through hard workouts!! And yes, I said HANGRINESS… lol Brent saw it first hand last night… I should have eaten more but I missed a meal and didn’t pack anything so I was really really hungry post workout!!
Anyways… let this fun journey begin!! I am excited to share the good, bad, and ugly with ya and share my changes I make over the next 14 weeks!!!!

Spring is JUST around the corner and I know it has been so easy to hide our body in our clothes from the winter… I don’t know about you, but I am all in for feeling healthy and looking healthy in my sun dresses, tank top and shorts, and bikinis!!
I am so excited that as an online fitness coach, I have the ability to mentor people from all over the US and Canada on their fitness journey by running my private groups in a closed group to help give EVERYTHING needed to reach those BIG fitness goals!!
So many people try on their own and are not successful with their fitness journey for a few reasons…
Maybe these reasons you have failed in your past are relatable. I can say I have failed in my fitness journey so many times!! But I am also proof that you can move past your failures and let your failures be a learning experience to be successful!
WHAT IS THE SPRING INTO HEALTH BET???
As a Beachbody coach, I have been able to learn and experiment the best ways to get the weight off and keep the weight off…. to build muscle, to learn better eating habits, and live a healthy lifestyle all the way around! By doing this, I incorporate exercise, nutrition and portion control, with support groups and accountability.
Beachbody has done a wonderful job at helping us give ourselves and our clients the very best! So they have recently released an amazing opportunity that I dove into quickly and has been a HUGE help with my journey! Now I get to share with you!!
ALL-ACCESS ON DEMAND – You know all those Beachbody home fitness programs that are out?? P90X, Country Heat, Insanity, 21 Day Fix and Fix Extreme, 22 Minute Hard Corps, Hammer & Chisel…. the list goes on and on… over $6,000 worth of fitness programs actually! Well, you now have the ability to access EVERY program we have INCLUDING any new release that we have in the 12 months that you sign up!
With the All-access, you have the ability to stream your workouts from your phone, computer, and smart TV (and fire stick/Chrome-cast)… so for those who have kids and they want to watch TV, you can still get your workout done!! And for those who travel a lot… no need to take those disks everywhere or worry about access to a workout, because its right at your finger tips!!
With the All-Access on demand, you will also receive the portion control containers to help you with your nutrition! Starving ourselves is NO longer an option!! But measuring and portioning our food based for each food group is an option and will help you get the most results! Each container is color coded for each food group and you will get a guide for what your body needs to reach your individual goals.
Lastly, with the Spring into Health Bet Challenge, you have the opportunity to incorporate a superfood health shake that will change your life!! I have been using Shakeology into my regimen for the past 4.5 years when I first got serious with my fitness journey and I will say, it helped me overcome my ice cream obsession and became my healthy alternative…. Shakeology helped me with getting the nutrients I wasn’t getting from my every day foods.. I started while breastfeeding and I knew my baby was taking away the nutrients I had, so this was my way of replacing what I was losing! I feel like I have more energy, less bloating, and less cravings for bad food simply because I am fueling my body with the right food!
I am so excited to kick off my next private group that will give you EVERYTHING you need to reach those goals!! It’s time to feel good and confident inside and out!! If you are ready to commit and interested in a spot in my support/challenge group, please fill out the application below and I will contact you ASAP!
So I am like everyone else with a New Year’s Resolution… but I try to make this more of a lifestyle!!!
One of my resolutions is to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle and minimizing the cheat meals each week. I do well with my workouts, but my nutrition can easily fall off as many of you can probably relate!
Now that my wedding day is coming right around corner in a little over 5 weeks, it’s time to get serious!
So I started my new regimen last week with Core De Force, which is our home fitness program with Beachbody! Since I am a fitness coach with Beachbody, it is important for me to lead by example and show others what is is like to live a healthy lifestyle! So I incorporate our home fitness programs that are around 30 minutes a day, along with clean eating! One additive we use into our nutrition is Shakeology, which is our superfood health shake and is a meal replacement! You cannot find this quality of a shake over the counter and has amazing benefits… hence me using this for over 4 years now!
As I started Core De Force, I also started with the 3 Day Refresh cleanse just to remove the toxins and junk that I put in my body over the holidays! It was a perfect way to get on track with my nutrition and get me in good eating habits!
There is not a huge difference, but I will say the bloating is gone, and I feel lighter!! I am down 3 lbs and 2 inches! My main goal was to get the toxins out of my body and get focused on my nutrition and let go of the cravings… It was a success!
So now the journey continues! I will be drinking my Shakeology daily, eating clean, and getting in my Core De Force workouts 6 days a week! These are the simple keys to success!! It’s not complicated! So many people try to over complicate it with counting calories, diets, points, macros, etc… honestly, its portion control, and making healthy choices!!!
So there you have it! My little secret to reaching those goals that seem sometimes IMPOSSIBLE!
Not only is working out going to help you burn those calories, but during the time of wedding prep, you need to relieve that stress!! Im going to leave you with a little secret about my wedding and engagement!!
My fiancé Brent and I got engaged on Christmas Eve…. we ALMOST went to JP to get married, but decided we wanted our special immediate family and very very close friends there… just a few!! So we set the date of February 18th, 2017! Yes, that is like 8 weeks to plan our wedding!
To take it a little further, since my fiancé lives in Maine, while I’m in PA, I am doing the planning alone. He gets to FaceTime with me, but it isn’t the same! He will not be transferring to PA National Guard until the end of summer!
But we are still having fun planning and getting ready! In the first week of actually planing (that started last week lol), we confirmed our venue, our flowers, and I got my dress! This week so far, we confirmed our photographer, our catering, and still going strong!
So who says they need 1 year to plan?! HAHA! I feel like I should do this as my second career!!
Anyways, I am excited to track my next 5 weeks of planning and getting fit for our wedding day! Also, feel free to follow me on my FITNESS PAGE on Facebook for more healthy tips and a little more of my journey! Embrace Your Figure

Everywhere I go, I hear people talking about wanting to get fit, lose weight, build muscle, tone up, find healthier ways to eat and stay on track…. but I see so many that are not taking action!
I want to take a moment to say I was in that same position at one time.. I would complain about how I look and feel, but did NOTHING about it! I knew nothing would change if I didn’t change. So one day it hit me. I decided I am in control of my life, my health, my results, and more importantly, my happiness! The way I feel shows through to my kids, and I REFUSE to be that mom always complaining about how she looks in front of her kids… thats only setting those kids up for having a complex about their weight/looks and feeling insecure themselves.
So lets take charge of taking care of our bodies, our health, and our fitness, and take the HEALTH BET CHALLENGE!!
WHAT IS THE BEACHBODY HEALTH BET?
Beachbody is the organization I work with as a fitness coach. I have been a personal fitness coach now for 4 years and in the past was a personal trainer at a gym. I have found so much joy working with people on a daily basis and not having to only stick with people in the town I live in.. I get to help others all over the US and Canada!
So… the Health Bet Challenge was initiated by our CEO of Beachbody who is obsessed with changing lives!! So obsessed that he and the other Corporate guys decided to not only offer men and women a chance to get in shape (using home fitness programs based on your own level of fitness and preference of workout) and healthy eating, but also now giving a chance for whoever takes on this challenge and commit to a specific regimen to earn CASH prizes from our pot that will start at $2 Million!! That’s right… 2 Million is the MINIMUM that we are promising and will go up to $3 Million. The amount of money you will win will depend on how many people sign up and be consistent on their fitness journey!
HOW DO YOU QUALIFY FOR THE HEALTH BET CHALLENGE?
WHY USE THE CHALLENGE TRACKER APP?
What I love about this Tracker app is that you will get notifications to remind you to check in throughout the day. You have a chance to surround yourselves around other like-minded people who have similar goals… What does this mean? This means that you will have more positive people around you, more motivation, more accountability with your fitness journey!
When you go in the APP, it is very easy to access and navigate! You have a spot to post your Shakeology, your workout, and you will see “COACH” posts so you know when I am posting as your mentor with your journey!
WHY TAKE THIS LEAP WITH YOUR FITNESS JOURNEY?
Ok, here’s the deal…. we know anyone can go to the gym and do a workout. We know anyone can eat healthy… But, how often do we stick with it when we do it on our own? Not everyone has $300 per month to spend on a personal trainer for 30 minute workout sessions 3 days a week. Not everyone has time to drive back and forth to the gym to workout when we are already tight with a busy schedule (you mamas and dads know what I mean). Not everyone can leave their kids at any given moment to go to the gym… not everyone has daycare available and we don’t want to drag our kids everywhere… lets face it, it gets tough with a tight schedule, naps and sleeping babies!
I am so excited to give you the opportunity to start your fitness journey… if you have started before and have not reached your goals or are not seeing the results you were hoping for, to finally change things up and reach those goals! Time to make 2017 YOUR YEAR!!!
