Well week 3 begins for our Shift Shop test group! I love that my husband and I have been doing this together and even being pregnant this program has been great! I am 20 1/2 weeks and have not modified yet, other than some push ups… I have done some modified on my knees. But the cardio part and other weight lifting has been great and I am feeling stronger!! And I am pretty excited to brag about my hubby who is seeing some bigger biceps too!!
My kids have done a few workouts with me when my husband has done a workout at another time. I don’t quite understand why they think these workouts aren’t hard enough!!! LOL The bear crawls really get me, and they think piling on mommy and adding 90 extra pounds should do the trick and make me stronger! Oh not including the extra 12 lbs on me right now with baby Josiah!
So let’s talk nutrition for a minute! 80% of your results come from nutrition! Whether you are trying to lose weight, gain weight, lean out, or build muscle, when you clean up your nutrition and eat the right amount, your results will come and they will be longer lasting rather than doing just another FAD diet!
And yes, my kids LOVEEEE drinking that healthy superfood shake with me! Shakeology has been a life saver in our home! Before I drank Shakeology, we would eat ice cream like it was going out of style! Seriously, we would eat it at least 3 times a week!! And I could finish off a half gallon on my own in one sitting! But, since incorporating Shakeology into our regimen, we now replace our ice cream with our shake so we are getting our proper nutrition AND getting closer to our fitness goals!! Well, my kids just have a goal of being healthy with mommy, so it is more so of mommy’s fitness goals!
People say they don’t have time to eat healthy and so many end up spending tons of money (at least $7) each time they stop at a fast food restaurant, but when they do this, it takes them farther away from their goal, causes bloating, and causes more cravings for that unhealthy food they are putting into their body! Well, here I can show you that fast food can be healthy and my shake is made WAY quicker than the time it takes to drive to the place, wait in line, and to get through the drive through and I pay HALF that price to get my veggies, protein, superfoods, healthy fat and good carb.. oh and multi vitamin!! WINNING!!
Here is my meal plan for this week to finish the last week of Shift Shop of phase 1!! Of course, we will move onto phase 2!!
We will incorporate Shakeology into our meals 1 time per day. I get 5 servings of protein per day and have lots of complex carbohydrates (veggies) and healthy fats. This week, per the Shift Shop meal plan, I will stay away from the heavy carbs like oats, sweet potatoes, etc… not that they are bad for you because I love getting those good carbs in, but this is me following and trusting the meal plan and program! Shift Shop was made by a certified trainer who also trains athletes. So this program and nutrition guide is a perfect way to change up your routine, speed up your metabolism, get great results and feel good inside and out!

So here it is!! I have some vanilla Shakeology hanging around my pantry and since I am a huge Chocolate fan and use it pretty much every day, I felt it was time to change it up a little!!
This Pina Colada Shakeology was a hit tonight for our evening snack to help us from digging into unnecessary items in our fridge and pantry!

My goal is to have family dinner EVERY night between 5-6… so far, its day 2 and I am on a winning streak lol! On day 2, I decided to make something new because I had a bag of frozen chicken breasts and didn’t feel like making anything that I already had on my blog! So I did some researching and came up with a perfect meal!
So my kids (my oldest I should say) can be very picky… when they see green (spinach or kale), they get nervous lol… well, I thought, I am cooking for 7 people every day, they are going to eat what I make!!! lol
So as I made this meal, I was so proud! It looked amazing to me, and smelled sooooo good!! I had dinner on everyone’s plate and the big barn door table ready!! Kids came down and 2 of them threw a fit and said they didn’t like it… BEFORE TRYING IT! UMMMMM excuse me?!??!?! You didn’t even try it!!!!! Do any of you moms have to deal with this?!!? I mean come on already! Feeding 7 people and you can’t even try it?? So mommy got a defensive and the words that came out of my mouth were, “You are going to say you don’t like it and you have not even put it in your mouth yet? Are you aware of the thousands of kids who are in other countries and WISH they had this meal sitting in front of you who do not have the ability to eat anything? You are going to sit here and eat your food and if you decide not to, you will not eat the rest of the night.” Yup, I said it… that may be harsh, but I am NOT willing to cook more than 1 meal for a meal if you know what I mean!
So the 2 boys got scared of me lol… and changed there attitude… gave it a try and GUESS WHAT?!?!?!
4 of the 5 kids (2 kids who threw a fit are included in this 4) GOT SECONDS because it was so good!!!!!!
BOOM!!! And all you need to do is give it a shot!!!
Lol, so there is my story! A bag of chicken used, a box of gluten free pasta used…. and 2 servings of this sauce WAS COMPLETELY GONE after our dinner with a family of 7! Everyone made happy plates and they were pretty proud of themselves for making happy plates too!! PS. A happy plate is when they eat everything off their plates!! They look forward to saying they made this!
Ok, so let’s get to how to make this yummy dinner that tastes like your eating a Pasta from the Cheesecake factory or Olive Garden!
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!
My kids have been asking for lasagna and I am trying hard to make good choices with food and stay healthy for this pregnancy, so I decided to make a different type of lasagna and have fun with it!
The kids LOVE soft tacos, so we took it to another level!
TACO LASAGNA IT IS!!!
21 DAY FIX APPROVED:
1 red, 1 yellow
*If adding Greek Yogurt, 1/4 red, lettuce and tomato 1/2 green, 1/2 blue if adding avocado
I hope my hubby doesn’t get mad at me for this!!!!😳🙈🙈🙈🙈
But babe.. I’m doing this for US!!!
Here’s the deal:
➡️I haven’t shared my actual before pics until AFTER my results came… and lately, I haven’t had results because I don’t keep my own self accountable enough….
➡️We BOTH have struggled because we let excuses get in the way:
Moving, getting married, pregnant and restricted workouts, etc…
👉🏽If we are going to really do this the right way and the hard way, we need to share the day 1 all the way to the day 30 or 60, etc.. and showing the world before pictures is a great accountability for us!
👉🏽The excuses haven’t helped us get the results we want… it simply prolongs our success… so pregnant, married, moved in, still busy, blah blah blah… let’s friggin kick some booty and do this!!
So yup… here it goes!!
I’m giving you my stats since I started my JANUARY NEW YEAR FITNESS GOALS and where I stand today:
👉🏽weight in Jan- 146
👉🏽weight today- 150 … and yes I’m 12 weeks pregnant but I still had some fat to lose!
I’m up 3 inches with my measurements from Jan… mostly around my belly though 😜 which I’m ok with!!
But my point is to do this as a TEAM and also have a healthy pregnancy where I’m not gaining 60 unhealthy lbs again!!
Brent, I love you and I’m thanking you now for taking one for the team!! 😜😘😘😘🙌🏽💪🏽👊🏽
Taking back old school to P90X3!! 30 days…. with good ol’ Tony Horton himself… rockin’ some pull ups, push ups, yoga, plyo, you name it!! ✌🏽
Nutrition is all about protein control and making healthy choices!! When your pregnant, you only need 200 extra calories a day.. YOU ARE NOT EATING FOR 2!!! A fetus is NOT another person lol!!! Let’s stay focused and on track and know what is actual hunger and what is emotions and boredom!
So for me, when I’m craving my sweet and chocolate, my to-go is my Shakeology balls…. getting my nutrition but staying on track!!
