    21 DAY ULTIMATE RESET- WEEK 1

    Deidra Penrose, top beachbody coach Harrisburg, top beachbody coach chambersburg, weight loss journey, 21 day Ultimate Reset, 21 day cleanse Beachbody, fitness motivation, fitness accountability, clean eating tips, clean eating recipes, healthy meal plan, grocery list for healthy eating, lose 15 pounds in 21 days

    OK, if you have been following my blog, you will know I have been following the 21 DAY FIX EXTREME, but have been having some issues with water retention, weight gain, and joint pain despite my clean eating and exercise.. I have followed the 21 Day Fix Extreme before and had amazing results. So when I am saying I stopped it again… its not because I go back and forth too much, but I NEED to figure out whats going on with my body! As I lost my 5 pounds with the 3 DAY REFRESH , I was under the assumption that I was back on the road to success… I maintained the weight off, then had 1 cheat meal.. seriously, the weight came back and then more! 🙁 Since, I was not able to eat clean, exercise and get it down again.

    Im sure many people are thinking she’s crazy, or she’s cheating and not saying it.. no seriously, I am completely honest and have been about my binge eating and emotional eating.. I am proud to say I have gotten myself back to a good place that food is no longer first in my life.. it hasn’t been my drug.  As I got away from competing for now, it has improved significantly!   But there is STILL something going on.  Im excited to share with you my next part of my journey I took.

    Last week, I was doing the 21 DAY FIX EXTREME still and wondering what I can do to totally trick my body.. Obviously what I’m doing isn’t enough.  So I knew the 3 DAY REFRESH helped, but what about the 21 DAY ULTIMATE RESET?? Its a detox to remove all the toxins and crap in my body and its hard core… I did it 2 years ago when I was trying to lose the last 10 pounds.. I ended up losing 11! So maybe this can help “fix” whats going on.  Obviously if something works and then I stop doing it and gain the weight back, I’m going to see an Endocrinologist.  But for now, I want to do what I can on my own since my last doctor appointment didn’t turn out well.

    So here we are, week 1 of the ULTIMATE RESET

    I did my meal prepping and grocery shopping! It was pretty exciting that I had a lot of the ingredients that are more costly because I already use them! 
    Coconut  oil, Braggs Liquid Amino, sesame Oil, EVOO, little things like that made a huge difference for my grocery bill!!

    Here is my Meal plan for the first week:

    Along with my meal plan of course comes with my lovely grocery list!!

    So that was the hardest part! Since I am eating a lot of the same foods, it was honestly easy to get prepared!! I am doing my salads right before I eat them, but otherwise, everything else is pretty much prepped ahead of time!

    I survived day 1!!! YAY!! 

    I did have a killer headache when I woke up the 2nd day, but I will say it was most likely because Im so use to drinking 3 servings of my E&E (my pre workout formula).. I totally drink way more than I should.. on a good note, its the only caffeine intake I get and more natural ingredients than any other energy drink!!

     Seriously, I had to step on that scale 3 times to see if something was wrong with it!  As I have been sharing my issues with retaining water and fluid and nothing is working…. well SOMETHING is NOW working!! On day 2 (mind you this is NOT normal for the average person to lose on this regimen), I got rid of 10 lbs… I feel a lot less bloated but I can see my definition again! I knew it was there somewhere lol!!! My abs are back for sure!!! YAYYY!!!  There is something about just feeling tone and good!! Im seriously SO glad I did this program!! I know today Im only on day 4, but it has been absolutely amazing!!!!

    So far, this is by far my FAVORITE meal yet!! They have all been great, but this was awesome and its filling too!! I actually had to force it all down!! Not normal for me lol!!

    So this has been my week so far!! 

    Exercise wise, I did do my Plyo 21 DAY FIX EXTREME and then Tuesday and Wednesday, I did yoga.  I will be doing yoga and pilates from the 21 Day Fix Extreme during this time since you are not suppose to put a lot of stress on your body.  

    Cannot wait to share with you at the end of the week on my first week results!! 🙂 Stay tuned!!

    3rd Ninja Turtle Birthday for my little Ninja!

    This past weekend was absolutely perfect!! My youngest son Weston is turning 3 this week, so we had a little Ninja bash!! Now I usually don’t post about this kinda stuff on my blog, but seriously, this mama put some time into this party, so I must share lol!!

    It is so easy to just delegate tasks for birthday parties to others so you don’t have to worry about it, BUT I have a reason behind what I did! I know people thought I was crazy when I was making my cupcakes, but here are my thoughts!

    I have been a working mom since both my boys were born. Swing shifts, 12 hour shifts, working holidays and weekends, and if I am off for a Birthday, I am usually working the day before and the day after.  So this is MY chance to be a MOM!!! I wanted to make the fun stuff..decorations, food, etc.

    So in my attempt to only go to the store once to get everything I needed.. it turned into 4.. maybe even 5 trips lol.. I have lists but still forget! Go figure! 

    The decorations were fun!! I did the Ninja Turtle balloons and made them into turtles!!

    Along with the Ninja balloons.. I made the treat bags into Ninjas too!! so simple to do!! and the kids LOVED them!! 🙂 So worth it!!

    And then the cupcakes lol… Ok, yes it took me 6 hours to make.. Thank goodness the eyes were candy because if I would have done what I did with my trial run of making these with all icing, it would have taken me so much longer!!! Its not easy keeping the colors from mixing together!! But it was done and they tasted great… so they say! 🙂 
    Mommy & Chase making cupcakes for the BIG day!
    Alright, I didn’t do too bad did I?! Totally worth 6 hours of labor lol!! 😛
    Ok the Fruit and Veggie trays were not so bad!! 
    “Ralph” Fruit Tray!
    “Mikey” Veggie Tray
    Gotta keep the liquid intake healthy! No POP allowed!! Some fresh fruit in the water was perfect!
    Seriously, his party starts and he brings out his 2 different personalities at once lol! He goes from crying to happy face in a second!! We don’t call him Brutus for nothing! 😛

    Its time!!! Weston and Ninja Birthday shirt!! Thanks to Etsy.com!  Gotta love it! 

    Wes and his big bro having a blast!!

    Is he inspecting my cupcakes?!? 
    Ready to dig in… with his ninja bathing suit!
    Weston and his cousin jumping on his new trampoline! (AKA Tramperine as Weston calls it)
    Myself with my Mama and sister!
    My FAM!! My Grandma and Grandpa, momma, and sister!! 
    Gift opening time!!
    Cousins!
    Brotherly Love!!
    So happy the day went well!! Lots of friends, family, and laughs!! Thanks to all who made Weston’s day so special!

    From ER Nurse to Full Time #MOMBOSS BEACHBODY COACH!

    FROM ER NURSE TO FULL TIME 
    #MOMBOSS BEACHBODY COACH!
    Deidra Penrose, ER nurse and Fitness, NURSE and FITNESS, stay at home mom fitness, high income fitness coach, high income Beachbody coach, 6 figure income fitness coach, top beachbody coach harrisburg pa, top beachbody coach  chambersburg, mom fitness journey, top online fitness coach, financial freedom and fitness, mom boss, successful beachbody coach, fitness coaches now hiring, business opportunity
    Here are just a few things about me that hopefully can allow you to RELATE and be INSPIRED to do more of what goals you have in life, but may be holding back on…
    I do not post about my income as a Fitness Coach because I do NOT want people thinking I am boasting or bragging… because that is NOT me… What I do want people to get out of this, is the potential for themselves to do more of what they want and not hold back because of fear.
    Fear can be a “LIFE SUCKER”… If you can push past the fear and let BELIEF and HOPE take priority over fear, you can create a “LIFE CHANGER” for yourself AND your family!
    HOW I FELT MOST OF MY LIFE:
    -> I struggled my way through life as a child… not many friends (YES, I was one who skipped lunch to hang in the bathroom stall).
    -> I struggled through college to get my Nursing Degree (BUT I DID IT)… I didn’t give up. Yes, I did have fun and party, but studied more than the average person because I took me to read the same thing over and over to get the point across.
    -> Financially, I struggled… any money I would earn I would buy things.. I am a HUGE gift giver so it was;t going to just things for me, I was always trying to buy things to show my love.. Ended up being is credit card debt 15,000$.  To get through school was another issue… my mom struggled financially, so she helped with my summer classes, but the rest.. school loans $30,000 debt.
    -> I Became A nurse and got a job in the ER… I loved it… BUT I came home not feeling satisfied like I truly “made a difference”.
    -> I always had a passion for fitness and working out, but never “thought” I could ever have a satisfying job that would bring home income to provide for my family. Plus giving up all that schooling and school loans I struggled for… NOT happening!!
    -> Working 12 hour shifts, weekends, holidays, and only having 1 vacation a year put a damper on my life. I felt I was worth nothing more and this was my life FOREVER… until I retire… at age 65 or older.
    WHAT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE TODAY:
    -> I started putting God first in my life. I realized NOTHING is more important than the man who died for me!
    -> As I got closer to God, I grew in having more Hope and Belief that I am meant for something greater in life.. I HAVE A PURPOSE!!
    -> I took 1 STEP in a direction that I knew people would judge me, hate me, block me, and remove me from their lives… BUT I knew my potential for success for MY FAMILY was more important than what others thought (hence having true friends).
    -> That step was JOINING a company Called Team BEACHBODY. Yes, we are on infomercials, T.V., online, EVERYWHERE.. WHY??? Because it is LIFE CHANGING!
    -> I do not work 12 hour shifts ANYMORE.. No weekends, No holidays…
    -> I get at least 3 vacations a year and do not have to worry about asking for time off… IM my own #momboss! I do what I want and when I want ;P
    -> It is a way for ME to stay accountable for my own goals— Yes I started coaching right in the middle of my own fitness journey.. BUT successful coaches come from having the right goals, mindset, and belief system, NOT the “perfect body”.
    -> I stay home with my kids.. no more missing out on their firsts… events, sports, etc… I ATTEND IT All! I will NOT miss them growing up… because they only grow ONCE!
    -> NOW… The BIG part.. when people ask.. you went from Nurse to fitness coach? How are you even replacing that income??
    MY SECRET:
    -> By having a passion for helping people succeed physically and financially, working to inspire others daily, and NOT GIVING UP… this happened…
    ->I have made my YEARLY FULL TIME Nursing Income (working for 5 years with my BSN) in less than 3 MONTHS of Beachbody Coaching! From $75,000 a year to $75,000 in less than 3 months!
    Taking that 1 leap of Faith… Knowing I am destined for something great in life… feeling a sense of accomplishment when I wake up and go to bed daily… This IS worth the LEAP!
    I am now looking for 5 other women, who sick of DREAMING, and are ready to start DOING… and PAY IT FORWARD TO YOU! 

    I want to allow others to have this amazing opportunity that I was blessed with!
    I am looking for MOTIVATORS, people who are NOT afraid to WORK, and people who are READY to take ACTION
    I want to bring you on my TEAM and help you through your journey to earn a 6-Figure income within your first 2 Years of Coaching!
    I know you may think… this is impossible, or maybe not for you… BUT you will NOT know until you DO IT! 
    If you are interested in hearing more about this opportunity, please fill out the application below and I will contact you within 12 hours.
    *Please note- Income is NOT guaranteed to all coaches.. Income is based on your effort and work put into your business. BUT, the sky is the limit and you make your OWN raises!*

    MEAL PREP- My favorite part!! Keeping up with my own accountability will drive me to success!! without preparing, I feel like its a perfect opportunity to set yourself up for failure and make excuses not to stay on track!

     My meals were basic, easy, and filling!! Each morning was my SHAKEOLOGY and apple.

     I think the hardest part of the refresh was the Fiber Sweep…. but honestly, after figuring out how to mix it right, it wasn’t bad at all!! The first day, as you see, I put it in a cup and mixed with a spoon… so it was clumpy and got thick fast… 
    The right way… put it in a shaker cup with really cold water, shake it fast and chug!! SO much easier!!

    The difficult part was only having a small portion of veggies… I usually go crazy with my green, but the coconut oil helped fill me up also.. and the more ice and water you use in your shake, the more full you will be! 🙂

    21 DAY FIX EXTREME JOURNEY UPDATE

    21 DAY FIX EXTREME UPDATE!

    Deidra Penrose, weight loss journey, Christian mom, Christian and fitness, God Created it quote,  Take care of your Body quotes, fitness motivation quotes, inspirational quotes, Christian quotes, 21 day fix extreme results, 21 day fix extreme journey, beahcbody home fitness, home fitness workouts, beachbody fitness programs, home workouts weight training, home workouts cardio, 30 minute home workouts, clean eating tips, top beachbody coach harrisburg, top beachbody coach chambersburg, top online fitness coach pa, fitness challenge group, 30 day fitness challenge, fitness motivation, weight loss challenge

    One thing I love about sharing my journey is that it keeps me accountable… It’s my journey, and its REAL!  If you have been following me, I was on week 1 not too long ago with my 21 DAY FIX EXTREME journey… and did not make it 21 days.  I had some set backs, doctor visits, blood work, and more motivation to continue moving forward with my journey NO MATTER what obstacle gets in my way!  

    I have never felt so OLD in my life… literally like I’m 80 years old.  I was retaining tons of water, my joints have been achy.  Literally, it takes my 2 minutes to limp around before I can feel slightly normal.  My body cramps with little movements. If I plank, my triceps cramp, if I turn my upper body, my abdomen cramps, its actually really pathetic!  I was taking potassium and magnesium supplements for the cramping and it hasn’t helped, along with drinking a gallon of water a day.  

    MY DR. APPOINTMENT:
    My Doctor appointment was pretty darn disappointing.  As a nurse, I am pretty educated, and have a good background of knowledge, but this was just pathetic.  As I go in, I say what my symptoms are.  Oh, she had a reason for EVERYTHING that was wrong with me… in her eyes.  

    I was told I’m turning 30, which is WHY I had a 15 pound weight gain in 4 weeks.  “As we start again and turning 30, you will notice it is much harder to keep that weight off.”…. UMMM, HELLO, THIS HAPPENS IN 4 WEEKS?!?! REALLY?!?! 

    Then I was told I am—> BORDERLINE OBESE…. Ok I may have wanted to walk out… punch her.. not sure, I had so many emotions going on at that moment… Instead I broke down in the office… “Yea, I’m here because I gained 15 pounds in 4 weeks and am RETAINING TONS OF WATER!” Now your calling me borderline obese, with abs?? HMMM OK! 

    Then…. “You are cramping because you are not drinking enough fluid”… my response… “So that gallon of water a day means WHAT TO YOU??”
    So THEN….. I get a prescription for LASIX?? Without even knowing what the heck is wrong with me??? 

    Literally, I walked out just crushed. … and with a paper for lab work.  
    Next day, I fasted and had my blood work done and got a call a couple days later that it was “abnormal” and need to get checked for my A1C because I may be Diabetic??
    Good thing I am educated enough to know that 100 is NOT ABNORMAL!!! 

    Nothing like trying to put you on meds for no apparent reason, additional blood work for no apparent reason…. I guess thats how some Doctors work these days?? I know not all are like this, but pretty upsetting that I’ve encountered 3 in the same practice with NO HELP with what my issues are.  

    So that has been my journey during my first 21 Day Fix Extreme attempt… I’ve been emotional about it, upset, mad, but realized at the end of the day—-> ONLY I CAN CONTROL THE CONTROLLABLE!!

    WHAT DID I DO TO HELP MY WATER RETENTION??
    Well, I sure as hell did NOT take the Lasix!  Instead, I took the alternative route and the 3 DAY REFRESH got me started!  During the refresh, I lost 5 pounds.. It got me focused on and gave me belief that I can make it happen on MY OWN, without unnecessary medication.

    WHERE IM AT TODAY:
    SO… after my pity party, crying about it, and feeling like a failure, I PICKED BACK UP and MOVED ON!!
    Time for a RE-DO!! Yup you heard me! This girl ain’t going down that easy!!! 🙂

    I am almost 1 week into the 21 DAY FIX EXTREME, and going strong! I have continued losing since my refresh that I started back up with and I am pushing through.  

    Im fighting through my workouts, yes, I modify some, my joints still ache, Im taking anti -inflammatories, and just making it happen!!

    Im focused on clean eating… I know eating fresh, lean, and clean will ONLY help my results!!

    My new favorite–> Mahi Mahi (from BJ’s food store)

    Iv’e been sticking with my SHAKEOLOGY every day, drinking tons of water.. and Green Tea.. and using that as a cleanse and being as normal as I can!! 🙂

    My conclusion is… no matter what struggles you encounter, if you want something bad enough, you MUST put on your BIG BOY/GIRL PANTS ON and GET OVER IT!  We are ALWAYS going to struggle through different issues in life, but just because times get tough, doesn’t mean you can give up!

    Your struggles are put in front of you for a REASON!! God has a plan and He knows it is only going to make you a stronger person in the end!!
