Boneless Hot Wings & Blue Cheese

The other day I was CRAVING wings after a day at work, and the smell of hot sauce... Hubby wasn't home, and I almost ordered in!  After looking at a take out menu for 15 minutes, I decided against it.. Especially because I almost ordered MORE than wings

I remembered I had chicken breasts in the freezer, and everything else I needed to make home made boneless wings.. AND even for blue cheese!

These are YUMMY. Spicy, AND only 6g of carbs!!!!

Beachbody is Headed to the U.K.!!!

beachbody UK, UK, teambeachbody UK launch, 21 day fix UK, shakeology UK


I don't think it's even CLICKED as to HOW BIG OF A DEAL THIS REALLY IS!!!!

There has NEVER been a better time to start your journey as a Team Beachbody Coach-- as we spread our mission globally and help more people than ever lead healthy and fulfilling lives!

beachbody UK, UK, teambeachbody UK launch, 21 day fix UK, shakeology UK

Beachbody has already changed the lives of many, and Team Beachbody coaches have already seen and have known success-- BUT there is an entire other part of the world we haven't even touched! 

The United Kingdom consists of a group of islands off the western coast of Europe. The largest, Great Britain, comprises three countries: England, Scotland and Wales. Ireland, to the west, consists of the UK's province of Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic!! HOW CRAZY IS THIS?!?! 

We're currently only serving the United States and Canada!  The US sure does have a skyrocketing issue with obesity, and it's only gotten worse. 

beachbody UK, UK, teambeachbody UK launch, 21 day fix UK, shakeology UK
As of September 1, 2016: According to the most recent data derived by stateofobesity.org, adult obesity rates now exceed 35 percent in four states, 30 percent in 25 states and are above 20 percent in all states. Louisiana has the highest adult obesity rate at 36.2 percent and Colorado has the lowest at 20.2 percent!!! That's CRAZY!!!! well over 35% in 25 of the 50 states!!!! It's nearly just as high in Canada!

NOW.. The U.K. ALSO has this trend... They have a similar health crisis!  People have obesity issues, and people want to get fit... Beachbody itself is already present in the UK, as is Beachbody LIVE (live classes, and certifications to teach LIVE classes)... BUT as we all know, the SUPPORT is the missing link in it all... Shakeology is the gap filler for nutrtion-- and support + shakeology comes only when you're working through a coach!

The U.K. has a $1 BILLION dollar + vitamin and supplement industry, which SHOWS that people are concerned about the epidemic of Obesity! People in the U.K. KNOW who we are, and they have been ASKING for us to have more of a presence there!!!

How Will It Work:

This amazing opportunity will launch FALL 2017-- with no specific date being released until later this spring!! (SORRY!)... 

As a current Team Beachbody Coach, you'll have the opportunity to hit up all of your U.K. contacts and/or friends who you probably came in contact with via Social Media... and it's our job to let them know how MASSIVE this opportunity is. 

US and Canada coaches could sign customers and coaches in the U.K., and vise versa!  All money will be converted to US for your paychecks, etc.  

Leads:

As a successful coach, you receive free leads!  You receive leads that give you income, and ones that do not.  The Lead Program, is GLOBAL!  Which means that as a coach in the US, Canada, or in the U.K., you can, and will, receive leads from any of those areas as well!!! Which is totally cool, because it's almost like a FREE-IN to other countries! 


More about this launch here:
Basically... this is RIDICULOUSLY huge--- and there is SO, SO, SO, much work that has been done into getting this into action... 
beachbody UK, UK, teambeachbody UK launch, 21 day fix UK, shakeology UK My business has JUST BEEN LAUNCHED started, as far as I'm concerned... Because I now realize how much bigger it can, and will get if I continue to work hard towards my dreams and goals.. 
I WANT to bring you with me-- we're going far, girl! 
If you've EVER considered becoming a coach, NOW IS THE TIME!  Read more about what I do as a coach here...

Blue Cheese & Bacon Stuffed BBQ Burgers

WELL, WELL.... This "low carb-high fat" thing had SO many perks!! 

Such as.... blue cheese & BACON stuffed burgers-- WITH BBQ sauce!? 

WHAT? How in the WORLD is that O.K. to have on ANY "diet...?" It's not.. that's why this isn't a diet.. 

IN FACT... the word "diet" simply means the food that you take in on a daily basis... therefore... there is not such thing as "dieting.." we're ALL on a "diet.." It's just a matter of if the food that's on your "diet" is helping you or harming you.... 

Now that we've cleared that up... let's talk THIS recipe! :p

  7. add apx. 1 tsp. blue cheese crumbles to the opening you've created.
  8. add more meat on top of the blue cheese, and push down around the sides, filling up the measuring cup, and "pinching" the edges of the burger closed with your spatula (see image)
  9. add burger to the heated pan, and repeat process. 
  10. after all burgers cooking, cook 5 minutes, and flip for 5 minutes (with a lid- if possible.. these get spitty!)  Flip again, and cook for an additional 3 minutes, flip one more time, and let sit 3-5 minutes.  (This will give you a medium well feel... adjust for your liking!)
Serve on 2 slices cloud bread, with 1 Tbsp. BBQ sauce. 

ENJOY! :)

Italian- Garlic Cloud Bread

This is the best cloud bread recipe I've found, BUT I've messed it up more than one time.. BE CAREFUL when you're making the "PEAKS," and be cautious when it's cooking, so you don't burn it!!!


Ingredients:

4 large eggs, separated

1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

2 ounces low fat cream cheese

1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder


Directions:

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.


  1. Separate the egg whites and egg yolks. Place the whites in a stand mixer  with a whip attachment. Add the cream of tartar and beat on high until the froth turns into firm meringue peaks. Move to a separate bowl.
  2. Place the cream cheese in the empty stand mixing bowl. Beat on high to soften. Then add the egg yolks one at a time to incorporate. Scrape the bowl and beat until the mixture is completely smooth. Then beat in the Italian seasoning, salt, and garlic powder.
  3. Gently fold the firm meringue into the yolk mixture. Try to deflate the meringue as little as possible, so the mixture is still firm and foamy. Spoon 1/4 cup portions of the foam onto the baking sheets and spread into even 4 inch circles, 3/4 inch high. Make sure to leave space around each circle.
  4. Bake on convect for 15-18 minutes, or in a conventional oven for up to 30 minutes. The bread should be golden on the outside and firm. The center should not jiggle when shaken. Cool for several minutes on the baking sheets, then move and serve!
NOTE: 1) The Best Cloud Bread Recipe can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several days. However the texture is best if eaten within 12 hours of baking. 2) Go easy on the garlic powder the first time you make it. I like adding 1/2 teaspoon, but that might be a little much for some palates.

PUNTA CANA TRIP - Success Club Trip 2017

coaching, beachbody coaching, punta cana, punta cana 2017, success club trip, now hiring, join my team


coaching, beachbody coaching, punta cana, punta cana 2017, success club trip, now hiring, join my teamGUYS... the second I was told late 2015 that I would be able to go to Punta Cana FOR FREE... I questioned EVERYTHING.. I questioned the company I had been working for, for 9 months.. I questioned how accurate this could possible be... I questioned if we'd end up with some kind of crazy bill before and/or after the trip.. I was in complete  and utter SHOCK... 

I had friends who were going to be headed to Jamaica a few months after I registered for the trip... (Success Club Trip 2016), but I still wasn't convinced. 


Would I be able to ACTUALLY earn a FREE trip?  

Would I still have to go on a Honeymoon after I got married (with Punta Cana being only 6 months later)...

Answer to the first question.. YES. 
Answer to the second question.. NO. 


coaching, beachbody coaching, punta cana, punta cana 2017, success club trip, now hiring, join my team

Still Unsure...

Matt and I got married on October 2nd, 2016, 10 months after I registered for a trip that I had OFFICIALLY earned 100% of by March 2016.  There was no way in hell we were going to spend.. or "waste" our wedding money or our own hard earned mula on a tiny trip.. Because well.. HOUSE! ... That was the big picture for us... SAVING FOR A HOUSE!!!.. (Which we're closing on in A WEEK!) O.O


Once I officially got the email telling me "YOU'RE GOING TO PUNTA CANA!!!" mid-January, I officially believed it all a bit more...



So... you didn't pay ANYTHING?!

If you're at all like my husband, he was STILL skeptical until we got there. 
coaching, beachbody coaching, punta cana, punta cana 2017, success club trip, now hiring, join my team


At FULL disclosure, we did pay $300 to HOLD our spot, it was a non-refundable deposit when I registered for the trip.. (SO... $300 for a 5 day, 4 night vacation to an ALL-INCLUSIVE resort?? Hell YEAH!

We paid for our flights. 

We decided to stay an extra night since it was our honeymoon, and Matt's bday, WHICH we did pay for ($376... AND that would've been $376x5 instead of x1 if we paid for this ourselves... do the math! ! ! )

Did you READ that part about ALL-INCLUSIVE?!

Food, drinks (but we don't drink.. so virgin pina colodas!), room service, YOU NAME IT.... 

OH... and $750 in resort credits + $300 in credits for the extra night....!!!


coaching, beachbody coaching, punta cana, punta cana 2017, success club trip, now hiring, join my team
There were 13 restaurants, 13 pools, a SPA, a gym, EVERYTHING.. Oh.. and the AMAZING turquoise water... That I've never seen before. 

We used our resort credits to go swimming with the SHARKS!! O.O There was a stingray in there too... AND we went snorkeling, horse back riding on the beach, and spent a few hours in the spa... We also were able to use our resort credit for gifts for our family (and ourselves) in the store!

So really, we HARDLY PAID ANYTHING. . . 


How'd you earn this trip?!

I earned this trip by simply helping others live a healthy and fulfilling life.  I had to help an average of 5 people each month during 2016 in order to earn the tip in full... I helped more than 60 people though, I actually helped upwards of 100. (90 under my own name, and 20 or so under my husbands). 
coaching, beachbody coaching, punta cana, punta cana 2017, success club trip, now hiring, join my team

I still received commissions for all of these orders, but along with the commission, I earned "trip dollars" towards the trip.  

HOW COOL!?

P.S.... When registered, if you don't help enough people, but you're still actively others monthly, you're still able to pay the difference!!! SO, this is available to ALL active coaches. 

I even had sound coach friends there!! To include MY COACH! <3 
coaching, beachbody coaching, punta cana, punta cana 2017, success club trip, now hiring, join my team
FRIIIEENDS!

We were able to chat with the CEO- Carl and his wife, Isabelle!!! There aren't even many companies where you KNOW the CEO, let alone get to meet them.. AND talk to them!!!

coaching, beachbody coaching, punta cana, punta cana 2017, success club trip, now hiring, join my team, ccoaching, beachbody coaching, punta cana, punta cana 2017, success club trip, now hiring, join my team

We even got to WORKOUT with the superstar trainers you all see on your TV!

AND I was able to snag a selfie with Jerricho from Core De Force too!!!! ;)

AND I won a photo opp with Joel, Jerericho, and the newest trainer, Chris. . WHAT?! :)

How Can I Earn a Trip Like This?

coaching, beachbody coaching, punta cana, punta cana 2017, success club trip, now hiring, join my team, jerricho mcmatthews, joel , chris downing, shift shop, core de froce

SIMPLE... BEGIN NOW.... 
Why? Because the trip for 2018 has already been registered for.. AND me ability to register for is depended upon productivity from 2016.  

Which means, the 2019 Success Club trip, will depend on Productivity from 2017.  Sounds like a LONG time... but believe me, it FLEW by. 

I wake up everyday and do what I love.. and I help others each their goals all while I'm reaching my own... It's simply amazing. . 

Who wouldn't want to wake up everyday happy, and excited to do their "work.."

Who wouldn't want to achieve their own goals while helping others reach theirs-- which happens organically as you're sharing your journey.... 

Exactly. :) 


NEXT STOP::: Rivera Maya, Mexico! :)


I'd love to see if you're a GOOD fit for my team... We're always looking for new ladies to join us, because well... We can't help everyone... But with numbers, we could help more... There IS power in numbers! !

The SHIFT SHOP is the first Beachbody program from our newest Super Trainer, Chris Downing. He’s an elite functional fitness trainer who specializes in helping anyone — regardless of weight, size, or age — get into amazing shape fast.
I LOVE that it's for EVERYONE!!!!! :)
The SHIFT SHOP is a ramp-up fitness program. Chris makes it easy for you to start. Then he gradually increases the intensity of the cardio and strength-training workouts week by week — all while refining your nutrition. Plus, he makes it a lot of fun.
Week 1, Chris uses shorter, 25-minute workouts that’ll help you stay focused and committed. And you’ll be eating a healthy balance of carbs, protein, and fat.
Week 2, just as your body adapts to the workouts, Chris increases their length to 35 minutes. Plus, you’ll cut back on the starchy carbs, while revving up the proteins and veggies.
Week 3, it all comes together. Seven days of higher-intensity workouts, while eating clean. This is your grand finale.
And there’s even a modifier you can follow, so you can always get through all the moves, and still get a great workout.
What can you expect after 3 weeks in the shop? Nothing but results. Your body should be leaner, faster, stronger. And because Chris will be shifting you toward a healthier mindset as well, you’ll be able to build on these accomplishments for the rest of your life.

 

What's Included in the SHIFT SHOP?

With the SHIFT SHOP you get 8 workouts that start slow, then accelerate. You’ll also receive a Jump Start Guide that helps you start achieving your goals on Day 1, Agility Markers that can help improve your coordination and agility, a 3-week calendar, and the Simple Shift Nutrition Guide — all specifically engineered to help you achieve maximum results.
