Oh boy!!! If you have been following me, I started prepping for a Figure Competition about 6 weeks ago! I was pumped to get back into my suit and heels because I haven’t pushed myself and my body that way in quite a while!!
Long story short, I have been taking my weekly pictures and tracking my show prep, but each week, I was getting more and more frustrated that my body wasn’t changing! I mean, I know how my body works and after doing 2 shows, I know what my body needs! So each week, I wasn’t seeing a difference, then weight started coming on (literally I gained 8 lbs in 2 week!!!) and felt bloated!! Well, I related the bloated and gas to a lot of protein (if ya know what I mean)! HAHA.. but that definitely was not it!
So needless to say, God had other plans than me prepping for a show!!! He felt we should expand our family even more!!
So there you have it!! A new journey begins as I put the figure suit away for a little longer!! Time to prep for baby #6 for our blended family!! We are so thrilled that the Lord has put this blessing in our hands and we have the ability to create another munchkin!
I am excited to share over the next 8 months how to be fit and healthy during pregnancy! I will still be doing EVERYTHING the same as I have been! I will still be working out, drinking my Shakeology, and eating clean! Yes, the nausea is pretty intense, but nothing that I can’t get through! Time to be strong, stay accountable, and enjoy this pregnancy!
If there are any other pregnant mommas out there who want certain tips or help through pregnancy that I can help with and share here on my blog, post in the comments!
Autumn Calabrese is the creator is the 21 Day Fix and Fix Extreme and decided to create a new program for people who love Country Music and Line Dancing, but more so, to be able to have fun with your workout and burn more calories to help you reach your fitness goals! It took her lifelong passion for country music and brought it to the dance floor, collaborating with Beachbody to create a high-energy, low-impact dance workout that’s so easy to follow, anyone can do it. The best part is it’s 30 minutes of nonstop dancing to today’s hottest country hits, so you’re guaranteed to work up a sweat — and a smile — whether you’re a country music fan or not. The fun country flavor and the simplicity of the steps are a huge part of Country Heat’s appeal, although the workout itself will definitely give both pros and newbies alike a good sweat. And results.
Country Heat is the perfect workout for reshaping your body. The custom-designed moves coupled with consistent cardio help burn calories and kick your metabolism into high gear, so in 30 days you’ll see some real results — a more toned and tightened body everywhere from your booty to your legs, shoulders, and arms.
Autumn designed Country Heat to be easy to learn and follow — anyone can jump right in without missing a beat. Each routine is infused with energy, fun, and cardio-centric moves all set to catchy country tunes. So 30 days later, you just might be ready to get back in the saddle all over again.
The Country Heat program includes five dance workouts, one full-body dance- conditioning workout, a quick-start guide, a 30-day calendar, a nutrition guide with 7-piece portion-control containers! These portion control containers have helped so many get on track with their nutrition and we all know sometimes those portions are not always what they should be!
No other equipment is required. The whole program, from the workouts to the music to the nutrition, is designed to be so simple that anyone can do it, and so much fun that everyone will want to.
SNEAK PEEK AT ME DOING COUNTRY HEAT:
WHAT CAN YOUR RESULTS LOOK LIKE?
Each person is different. We all have different body types, genetic, etc. but I will say the people who committed to Beachbody’s Test group did incredible!!! Some being personal friends of mine and watched them go through the journey over the past couple months!! Here’s what they look like:
Why incorporate SHAKEOLOGY with your fitness programs?!
Ok so most people struggle with nutrition the most.. its just a fact of life. Food is a drug that people don’t seem to get away from.
This is your chance to get help with your nutrition. To get those nutrients and dense superfoods your body doesn’t normally get from your every day foods, to boost your energy, get rid of those cravings, and get on track with eating and feeling good! This is one meal you KNOW you will be getting the best of the best! All- natural, super dense, and so easy and convenient for all you other busy mamas out there (one of the reasons I fell in love)!

As a nurse for 6 years, I got use to leaving my oldest son, working those swing shifts, weekends, holidays, and missing out on memories. It was something I just figured was going to be my life and I had to get use to. Nothing was going to change….
Then I realized, nothing was going to change until I made a change!
I loved nursing don’t get me wrong. I have a passion for helping people, talking (lol), and I could eat a cheeseburger while cleaning up c-diff if I needed to (gross right?!) and seriously, the Dr’s knew to call me in the room when someone was getting an I&D of an abscess!
But I was missing something BIG with my passion… I loved what I did, but I loved being with my family more. So as I grew up loving exercise, fitness, and helping people, I decided to change it from helping the acutely ill in the ER, to preventing people needing to go to the hospital. Why wait until its too late? Its time to prevent illness and disease and help people lead a healthy and fulfilling, happy life!
I had no idea where to start to build a business of my own. I was just losing the baby weight from my second son, and figured, I love what my Beachbody home fitness programs were doing for me along with clean eating and drinking Shakeology, so why not share my journey with others on social media (FB, Instagram, and creating a blog), and telling my family and friends! I mean, isn’t that what we do when we see a good movie or go to a good restaurant? So thats what I did and thats how my success started 3 years ago!
Ive lost 40 pounds, got into the best shape of my life, but I’ve also changed in so many other ways. I am home with my kids 80% of the time (they go to daycare about 2-3 days a week to keep my sanity lol), I am able to provide them with freedom I never have before—> In just 40 days, we are going on a cruise to Jamaica and Bahamas and then right after we land, off to Disney for our very first time!!
In just 2.5 years, I retired as an ER nurse and was making my yearly income as a nurse in just 4.5 months. I also have made the best of friends with my fellow coaches who decided to take this leap with me! There is nothing special we have that YOU don’t. We simply have a passion, drive, and want to succeed!

I started knowing NOTHING about social media or multi-level marketing (network marketing) and was very skeptical. But the more I learned, the more I realized, network marketing is sharing what works for you and those who you are helping, along with having NO LIMIT on your success! NO one will fire me, no one will tell me how much I can make or give me a raise… if I want to help people, I simply help more people! Thats what its about!
These pictures are from our last Super Saturday Training—> A place to get together, have some training, a great workout together, and spend quality time with others who lift you up and inspire each other!
At our Super Saturday training in Pittsburgh, I was one of the speakers at our event with 1,000 people. For me, this is a huge deal because I am deathly afraid of public speaking. Again, this is something awesome that Beachbody has helped me with. Overcoming my fear of speaking. I wont say I’m completely comfortable, but I am getting better!!
I was so so proud of these 2 star Diamond coaches on our team Maegan (left) and Sarah (on right) who also spoke at our training event! This was our first big event where I was able to see our leaders from our team speak! They have come such a long way and love watching them grow so successfully!
These are our coaches on our team Forever FIT who came to our training event. This is just a small number of the amazing talented coaches we have!
We get together for these awesome events, but are from all over the US and Canada! I was so excited to spend some quality time with one of my success partners Shannon from Florida (in the middle) and one of my Diamond coaches from St. Louis Ashley (on the right). Yes, even though we are fitness coaches, we still have our Margaritas! 😉
And of course, after our training, we do like to party and have fun!! It was so nice to spend quality time with my coaches who I don’t get to see very often!
We have a blast doing what we do as coaches!! We are just normal people with BIG dreams and goals in life! We are moms, dads, nurses, teachers, stay at home moms, and now work from home moms who are creating freedom and happiness within our lives and to others!
