So if you have been following my journey, the Shift Shop journey is in FULL force!! We are in week 2… my hubby and I and are following our challengers in our big exclusive test group! Being 20 weeks pregnant, I wanted to pick a program to follow from home that still challenged me, gave me cardio, weights, and an easy meal plan to follow, yet allowed modification for when necessary!! I know my body and definitely do not want to over do it and hurt myself or the baby!! So, this is what we choose!!

Being half way through week 2, we are kicking butt with these workouts!! They are a challenge for sure, but I think my past workout programs I did really got me in great shape to still be able to do this program without modification yet!! As my belly gets bigger, there will be some moves I may have to modify!!  But overall, my husband and I both LOVE the program and what it gives us!

 

We have been waking up every morning at 6 am and getting in our workout and it feels so good and have that 25-35 minute workout out of the way and really gives us energy to get our day going!

Let’s talk nutrition for a minute… nutrition is NOT easy for me!! It is what I struggle with the most! I use to struggle with eating at night… I craved sweets. Now that I drink Shakeology, it has SIGNIFICANTLY helped those cravings and I am good! Where I struggle with is snacking during the day and if I am out… which we have been traveling a TON lately!

But, I want to keep this pregnancy healthy and stay as in shape as possible and not gain those 60 lbs I gained with my other 2, so this Shift Shop program really allows us to focus on simplified nutrition and easy prepping with our food!

Breakfast for champions! Eggs with our fresh veggies from our garden! See, healthy eating isn’t expensive!!

Here is our meal plan for Week 2! I am using Plan B 1500-1700 calories! And I may add an extra spoonful of natural peanut butter here and there lol… hey, I am just being honest!!!

Dinner tilapia with our fresh veggies from our garden turned into stir-fry! I used Bragg liquid aminos in the stir-fry cooked with EVOO! This is a must try!!

With our veggie stir-fry, we are mixing it up with whatever veggies we have from our garden!! So basically TONS of zucchini, tomatoes, and adding mushrooms, kale, and broccoli or green beans from the garden!

  • 2 (25 ounce) jars of pasta sauce

  • 1 pound UNCOOKED penne pasta (I used gluten free made with Quinoa from Aldi)
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 shredded mozzarella (I use low fat)Crock pot baked ziti, deidra penrose mangus, clean eating dinner recipe, healthy lasagna recipe, top beachbody coach PA, elite team beachbody coach PA, weight loss recipes, healthy pregnancy tips, military fitness, ricotta cheese, healthy recipes with turkey meat and lean ground beef, healthy spaghetti, getting fit for summer, healthy eating tips, spinach

Directions:

  1. Add both ground beef and turkey burger to large pan and cook on stove on medium high for 5 min (or until slightly pink- don’t worry, it will cook the rest of the way in the crock pot).
  2. Combine ricotta, eggs, and spinach in a bowl and stir well
  3. In a large bowl, combine both pasta sauces and tomato sauce together.
  4. Grate Parmesan cheese (I used around 2 cups) and set aside.
  5. Grease the inside of a 6 qt slow cooker (I used Olive oil spray but you can use whatever you have)
  6. Add 2⅓ cups of pasta sauce to the bottom of the slow cooker
  7. Add ⅓ of the uncooked penne.
  8. Dot on half of the ricotta mixture and spread out evenly.
  9. Add half of the Parmesan cheese (1/2 cup)
  10. Add another 2⅓ cups of sauce mixture
  11. Add an additional ⅓ of the uncooked penne.
  12. Dot on the remaining ricotta and spread out.
  13. Sprinkle on the remaining parmesan cheese (1/2 cup)
  14. Add the last ⅓ of the uncooked penne.
  15. Top with the remaining 2⅓ cups of sauce mixture
  16. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours, or until pasta is al dente (I found that toking on high for 2-3 hours helps prevent the noodles from getting too soggy)
  17. During the last few minutes, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese to the top and allow to melt
  18. Serve alone or topped with red pepper flakes and a side salad!
  19. Enjoy!

With that said, let’s talk SALES and SAVINGS for that HEALTHY lifestyle!! Beachbody is the company I joined 4.5 years ago that changed my life!!

Staying Fit with Pregnancy #3!

Hey everyone, happy Monday!!! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are ready to get back to the grind!!

Deidra Penrose Mangus, healthy pregnancy, Piyo meal plan, healthy mom tips, top beachbody coach PA, elite team beachbody coach PA, healthy lifestyle, healthy blended family, military wife, military fitness, fitness and pregnancy, have a healthy pregnancy, 3rd pregnancy, clean eating with pregnancy, fitness motivation, yoga and pregnancy

If you haven’t followed my journey yet, I’ll give you a little background!! I have 2 boys ages 6 and 4, and 3 bonus kids ages 9, 7, and 4…. and my husband and I are expecting our first baby TOGETHER to add to our blended family of 8! We are so thrilled that God has blessed us and our story has been quite a story!!

My husband and I met not too long ago… back in August of this past year, got engaged just 4 months later, and got married in Feb (just 6 months later of meeting)… and 1 month after marriage, Brent was able to move to PA with me and then it happened… expecting baby #6! Although many think its fast (which we won’t deny it is), we would not have it any other way!! We are completely content with our choices, our relationship, and our lives!

So now we are so excited to share our pregnancy together over the next 8 months! Currently, we are 9 weeks pregnant and will be 10 weeks on Thursday! Due date is Dec 21st, although I went 2 weeks early with both of my boys, so that may just happen again!

My goal for this pregnancy is to be as healthy as possible! I gained 60 lbs with both my boys and I do not want that to happen again! So, my health is my priority so I am healthy for the baby, and feel good as well… The healthier and active you are, usually the better the pregnancy and delivery!

I made a meal plan for this week and I have a workout plan and I’m ready to go! Now with my workouts, I am taking it easy because I have a sub-chorionic bleed, so I am restricted from heavy lifting, jumping, etc.. But I love my yoga, so that will be incorporated, along with jogging, and light weights!!

Deidra Penrose Mangus, healthy pregnancy, Piyo meal plan, healthy mom tips, top beachbody coach PA, elite team beachbody coach PA, healthy lifestyle, healthy blended family, military wife, military fitness, fitness and pregnancy, have a healthy pregnancy, 3rd pregnancy, clean eating with pregnancy, fitness motivation, yoga and pregnancy

So here is my meal plan for the week! Keeping this week lower on carbs, higher with protein and fats. My body has done really well with this and I know gluten makes me feel bloated so if I can stay away a little, I am good! You will see in my meal plan, I AM using Shakeology, which is our superfood shake that is full of dense nutrition… This is something that has helped me so much with my nutrition and has helped with my cravings, bloating, digestion, and energy and I have been continuing to use it daily since finding out I was expecting and plan to use it my entire pregnancy! It is recommended if you question it, that you talk to your OB/GYN, but mine actually use it and are happy with the ingredients and I just need a folic acid in addition to my Shakeology and that takes care of my pre natal vitamin! When people ask me if its safe, I usually respond with: If you are willing to put fast food in your mouth, soda, or other chemicals in many foods, Im thinking a healthy superfood shake won’t hurt!!

My water intake will be a gallon a day… well thats my goal and I’ve been doing pretty good with it when I add lemon and fresh berries to spice things up!! lol

For my workouts, PiYO will be my program! I love my yoga, so this is a yoga/pilates type workout that will help me with my strength and flexibility! I was in Beachbody’s test group when it first came out and had great results!

Workout Schedule

Monday- PiYo align

Tuesday- Define Lower Body

Wednesday- Define Upper Body

Thursday- Strength

Friday- Rest

Saturday- Define Lower Body

Sunday- Define Upper Body

So there you have it!! My plan to success this week!! I am excited to share my journey with you and if there is anything specific about pregnancy you would like to ask or have me talk about, please comment and I will be sure to help with what I can!!

Skinny Chicken Enchiladas

Cinco De Mayo was here and I have been wanting to make some sort of healthy alternative to a Mexican meal… because we all know not all Mexican food is healthy despite having some veggies on top!

So I put together this dish that was so so good!! Very simple to make, and it’s a healthy dish that the whole family will love!

Deidra Penrose Mangus, Healthy chicken Enchiladas, skinny chicken enchiladas, healthy dinner recipes, weight loss recipes, black beans, fresh salsa, healthy chicken recipes, avocados, cilantro, top beachbody coach PA, elite beachbody coach

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice or quinoa
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, cubed or shredded (I used a rotisserie chicken.)
  • 14 oz. your favorite salsa (I prefer fresh if possible)
  • ½ cup corn kernels, frozen, canned or roasted
  • ½ cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • salt & pepper to taste, as needed
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, divided (I used a block of Kolby Jack and shredded it myself since shredded cheese has some extra ingredients that are not so healthy).
  • Optional garnish; diced avocado, tomato and fresh cilantro

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and prepare an 8×8 or 2 to 2½ quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine brown rice or quinoa, chicken, soup or salsa, corn, black beans, cilantro, cumin, chili powder, garlic salt and ½ cup shredded cheese.
  3. Spread mixture into the prepared baking dish. Top with remaining ½ cup shredded cheese. Bake uncovered until bubbly and cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately, garnished with avocado, tomato and cilantro, if desired.

Feel free to eat all by itself in a dish and if you like sour cream, add 1 tbsp of plain Greek Yogurt as a healthy alternative! You can also use this as a dip with whole grain tortilla chips!

Beachbody Coach Opportunity.. A real chance at real freedom, real success, and real happiness!

Deidra Penrose Mangus, health and fitness coach Beachbody, top beachbody coach PA, stay and home work from home mom, healthy new mom, home fitness business, forever fit, weight loss journey, financial freedom fitness, military wife, healthy lifestyle, beach body coach opportunity, fitness coaching opportunity

The craziest thing I hear so many times recently is “Go get a real job.” Or “Oh, that Beachbody scam she does can’t possibly be a career.” Those people who are saying this to me, or hoping I would hear it… I am happily going to educate you on what I do so no one is confused and making these misconceptions about my career as a work from home mom and fitness coach.

4 years ago before starting this whole crazy Beachbody Coach gig, I was a full time ER Nurse. I absolutely loved what I did as a nurse, but 2 years ago, I quit nursing to stay home with my boys and work from home while still being able to fulfill my passion for helping others. But instead of helping people in the hospital, I was then helping people stay out of the hospital and preventing them from acute and chronic illness such as Diabetes (one of the worst diseases killing millions of people), cancer, obesity, heart disease, and more.

Since working from home and running my own fitness business, I have gained so much from life, than many with “real jobs” never get a chance to even experience… maybe thats why they don’t call what I do a real job??

Possible reasons why I am getting questioned about what I do:

  • I sell products off a website
  • I build a team which helps my long term income and stability
  • I don’t clock in and out at a building with a name on it
  • I don’t wear a uniform to work or have certain attire that is required daily
  • I don’t have a boss to tell me what to do
  • I run my business through social media and talk to people all over the US and Canada (and soon to be international)
  • I didn’t have to go to college for this education or have a certain experience/training before starting
  • Some of my trainings and trips I attend as a coach are at resorts, vacation spots, and I’m having a blast doing it

These reasons are absolutely reasons to question what I do! We are all entitled to our own opinion and have the right to be skeptical and curious!!! Which is WHY I am going to answer ALL these concerns!

  1. I do sell products off a site! I sell products that have changed MY life and my family’s and friends! They were my guinea pigs first along with myself to see if these products actually worked! What I have found is answers to many people’s questions and complaints about a healthy lifestyle! I found workouts with real certified trainers like the 21 Day Fix, Hammer and Chisel, and Core De Force, that help you get through a real workout. In these programs, you get nutrition plans with recipes to help you eat healthy for you and your family! You also get to calculate your caloric intake and figure out what you should be eating each day according to YOU and your lifestyle and goals. Oh, and that Shakeology stuff…. yes, thats real too! I have not found ANY other meal replacement shake that gives me the energy, helps my digestion and bloating, and gives me the nutrients and superfoods that Shakeology does. This isn’t for everyone either, this is for people who go for quality for their health and who want to live a healthy lifestyle the right way… working hard, exercising, healthy eating, and getting support, motivation, health and fitness tips from me as their coach! NO wraps, diet pills, patches, nothing temporary that could possibly be called a scam or bad products that don’t work! The only way it doesn’t work is if you stop trying!  So I do sell products that are life changing, and I also sell health and happiness!
  2. I build a team which helps my long-term income.  No, this is NOT a pyramid scheme and I do NOT make money from the people below me… If I am not working, people who signed up after me can pass me up and make more income than myself! How this does work though, is when you find other like-minded people who are ready to hustle and change lives, you are all building a team and helping others which builds volume, which leads to long term income that doesn’t disappear just because you don’t “sell” something that day or week. As I build a team, I do less “selling” and more training to help my coaches to become successful themselves in running challenge groups to help people along their fitness journey! I was able to triple my nursing salary when I actually quit nursing to work full time as a Beachbody coach, and I don’t know about you, but income is income and either way, that is food on my kids table and a roof over their head! I, just like others with a real job have been able to pay off debt, put money away for my children, take my kids on vacations, and have holidays for them without stressing about what is in my bank account… and not everyone with a real job can even say they can do that… I know working as a nurse, I still struggled to get debt paid off and have extra set aside.
  3. I don’t clock in and out of a building with a name or title on it. No, I don’t work at ____ Hospital anymore… I wake up and while my boys are still sleeping, I go downstairs sometimes in my Pj’s and answer a few messages. Then my boys wake up and I get them ready for school and my youngest Wes hangs out with me during the day and we work together, with a little play time in between! I also can take breaks when I need to so I can attend my kids events and sports which has been such a blessing! I do not have a time clock to where I get paid by the hour. I make up my own hours according to what is best for me and my family, and I can work wherever I feel like because my business is worked online! I don’t have to leave my kids.. they watch me help people via computer, phone, and if they are close, my challengers and coaches come over and we workout together, meal prep together, and have fun! I know that doesn’t even seem like a real job… it seems like a dream right?! Well, the beauty of your life is YOU get to pick what you do and where you work! You picked your life and career, and I will be in charge of mine!
  4. I don’t wear a uniform to work. Nope, I mostly wear workout clothes, but sometimes I work in my Pj’s! If I’m on a trip, I even wear a fancy outfit, or a bathing suit! I think my favorite part is the yoga pants though! They are pretty comfy and you can find really cool ones with cute designs!!
  5. I don’t have a boss telling me what to do. Nope.. I am MY OWN BOSS. I answer to myself. I don’t have someone I have to report to for an evaluation for a bonus or raise.. I simply help more people and give myself my own raise! Sounds pretty cool, right?!
  6. I run my business through social media. This might really get people. Like how can you run a real business using social media?!?! Well, it’s something called network marketing and it’s as real as it gets! You have the ability to not be stuck to help people or work with people only in the area you live! You have the ability to help people from all over, make friends from all over, and it’s a pretty wonderful thing! When you limit yourself to a local area, your limiting your success… this is an opportunity for you to change so many lives in so many different locations!! This is also how I share my journey and story so I can find other like-minded moms, military families, and fitness lovers who want to empower other women… because that is my true goal in life!! To empower women and help them see they can be independent, strong, and successful no matter what trials and tribulations they have encountered in their lives!
  7. I didn’t have to go to college or have an education to get my fitness coaching job. Sure didn’t, and that may come off crazy, but it’s not about how much you know, its about how hard your willing to work, how passionate you are about what you do, and how much your willing to learn and experience along the way! As a successful coach, I have my own trainings to help my team grow a successful home business themselves! I teach my team how to brand themselves, how to communicate with potential challengers and teammates, and learning about what Beach body is and what we stand for!
  8. I travel and my trainings are at resorts, vacations spots, and I have fun doing it! The problem with society is we are put in a place that we are suppose to think of a job is being something you hate going to… something you dread… all you who clock in on Mondays who work your 9-5 or swing shifts.. you dread Mondays and the start of another week…. I get it, I’ve been there and done that! But is that really how we should live?? I don’t live in a  fantasy world, I live in a world that you should be happy and feel complete with what you do every day, because you spend a lot of your life doing that and you only live once and you better live it to the fullest! So yes, I have fun working, traveling, and spending quality time with my friends that I choose to work with… because I have that ability!

I have the ability to choose this as my career, just as you have the ability to choose your career and your happiness! I hope this whole Beachbody coaching gig makes a little more sense to you now. It’s a real job that can give you real freedom with your family and loved ones, real happiness, and real success!

Again, its not for everyone! Its for people who love to be healthy and want to share their journey along the way, want to make friends and surround themselves around other positive and uplifting people (because we are pretty positive… even in the darkest times we find faith, hope, and a good future), and aren’t afraid to work in yoga pants at any hours of the day you want!

YOU CHOOSE YOUR DESTINY!

If you read this and it seems like a perfect fit for you and you would be a great asset to my team Forever FIT, please fill out my application below for a spot in my New Coach Training so I can help you find that freedom, happiness, and success!!

Weekly Healthy Kid Meal & Snacks!

As a mom, sometimes it’s tough to get our kids to fuel those little bodies because they are picky, and just don’t always like to eat! I have done trial and error with my kids and have found some easy healthy ways to get them to enjoy eating without putting tons of artificial sweeteners and chemicals in their bodies and its cost effective too!

So I want to share with you an example of a weeks worth of my kids lunches for school, but also can be used as healthy snacks!

  1. Peanut butter rice cake with cucumber and hummus
  2. Ham and cheese sandwich with apple and cinnamon (the cinnamon will keep your apples from turning colors) and almonds
  3. Chicken, go-gurt, and fresh blueberries
  4. banana and peanut butter sandwich, carrots, and light string cheese
  5. Whole wheat and cheese quesadilla, apple sauce, wheat Scooby -do graham crackers
  6. Peanut butter on whole wheat cut outs, dried mango pieces, cashews
  7. Low sodium ham wrapped on light string cheese, rice cakes, fresh mixed raspberries and blackberries

It’s also easy to pre make some of these and have them all ready to go! As I meal prep, I prep a lot of my kids food and place them in sandwich baggies! I cut up the veggies and wash the fruit, cook chicken, and make sandwich cut outs a couple days in advance!

When it comes to my kids, health is a priority! Showing them a healthy lifestyle early, will prevent obesity and health issues in the future! Just as we teach kids to brush their teeth, make their bed, and pick up toys, we can teach them how to eat healthy, but still allow them to enjoy food!
