I will be the first to admit that I have cravings. Yup. I am a health and fitness coach and I still get the cravings for chocolate (mostly), tortilla chips, tacos, and Papa John's pizza. Listen, I indulge in all of those from time to time, but NOT the way I USED to. I have learned a little more about self-control and I'm STILL learning how to give GOD control!!
Has food become more about frustration than fulfillment? Do you feel like you are always saying "I'll start getting healthy on Monday"? Do you agonize over the number on the scale and feel guilty about it? Listen, that is NOT what God intended for us!
Enter the Made to Crave Challenge Group.
I have learned that many people, especially women, turn to food for comfort, instead of God. Many women struggle with reaching healthy goals WHILE growing closer with God. I am not an expert, so I am calling on the help of my friend, Lysa Terkeurst. Okay, we don't ACTUALLY know each other in person. ;) BUT--the way she writes, I feel like we COULD be best friends! In her book, "Made to Crave," she shows the missing link between a woman's desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen
I was looking for something to REALLY help my clients from the INSIDE out. Our bodies were given to us to by God and we are called to care for them as a temple. So, how do we do that?
I feel like the best place to start is with turning our cravings from food into cravings for God. That is what this book is going to help us do. Each day in our private accountability group, my team of coaches and I will be posting a short message that goes along with what we are reading in "Made to Crave." In addition to changing our hearts, we will focus as a group on changing our health through whole food nutrition and (optional) daily exercise. It will literally be the whole package. You will FEEL good from the inside out. Looking for freedom? Here it is!
How long is the group? The group will run for 5 weeks, with the first week set up as "prep week" to get you ready for the 4-week challenge, and we begin on Monday, July 16, 2018 (just FYI, it takes about one week to get your materials for this group). You will learn what clean eating is, how to make a meal plan, grocery lists, and how to take "before" pictures and measurements so you can track your progress. There are no embarrassing weigh-ins and you can choose to send your "befores" just to me as your coach (to hold you accountable), or just keep them for yourself.
What do I need? In order to participate in the challenge group, you will need to purchase a challenge pack, and with qualifying packs*, you will get the "Made to Crave" book for FREE!!!! (Orders placed through July 16th).
My two most popular options right now are LIIFT4 and 2B Mindset. LIIFT 4 is a fitness and nutrition program that combines weight lifting and HIIT training in only 4 days/week. Balance for a busy schedule is the key to this program. Perfect for runners or other athletes for cross-training, or anyone wanting to get in amazing shape in only 8 weeks. Learn more about LIIFT4 here.
2B Mindset is strictly a nutrition program, providing lifetime access to the video library on how to have a life of "food freedom." Nothing is off-limits with this plan, and there is no counting of calories, containers, or macros. This program addresses the MINDSET behind eating well for LIFE. You can also bundle this program with our Beachbody On Demand fitness library. Learn more about 2B Mindset here.
*Qualifying packs for the free "Made to Crave" book include any packs at $180 or more.
What is Shakeology? Shakeology will be the healthiest meal of your day, packed with over 70 superfoods and absolutely NO artificial ingredients or fillers. There are even vegan options available! If you crave sweets, need energy, would like to have a ton of vitamins in a milkshake form, and FEEL GOOD about what you are putting into your body, this is it! I can't tell you how much EASIER my life has become with making a shake in minutes after a workout, to help me recover, or for an on-the-go breakfast. With three kids, who has time to eat a giant breakfast? I don't, but I get all the nutrition I need FAST with my Shakeo in hand!
How about YOU? Are you ready to get started? Are you ready to FEEL good about yourself and TRUST GOD with your health and fitness and learn to CRAVE Him instead of food? When you join the group with a challenge pack, you will receive the "Made to Crave" book FREE as my gift to YOU. My goal is to help you get fit from the inside out and help you to know that YOU ARE WORTH IT! Invest the time in YOU and see what happens!

SUMMER IS HERE!!!!
Ready to get in shape in only FOUR days per week?
I, personally, cannot wait for this lift and HIIT program because with my kids being home and the crazy activities of summer, I don't want to have to commit every day of the week just to get some results! Amen? Introducing the newest fitness program: LIIFT4!!!!
LIIFT4 is a no-nonsense combination of weightlifting and high intensity (HIIT) cardio to build muscle and kill fat. The moves are based on classic lifting techniques that let you isolate, stabilize and focus each rep on the muscle group you're working. Every workout ends with a core routine for a full body build and burn that leaves you shredded. There are no gimmicky moves, no overly complicated routines and no opportunity for boredom because you'll NEVER do the same workout twice. Get it DONE in just 4 days a week, 30-40 minutes a day, 8 weeks total. (LIIFT4 will be available exclusively on Beachbody On Demand.) You’ll pack into just about 30 minutes on average what would normally take an hour and a half at the gym. BOOM!
How does it work?
Because you’re only working out 4 days a week, Joel makes every second count during each workout; they’re structured to keep you lifting on pace and constantly moving, while timed rest periods allow you to catch your breath before attacking each set.
Why only 4 days?
Joel believes if you train smart you’ll never overtrain. Three recovery days a week give muscles time to repair so you can push harder, lift heavier, and get better results faster.
There are two phases for maximum results: For the first 6 weeks, you’ll build, cut, and define your body, followed by 2 weeks to burn through calories and fat, revealing your ultimate physique.
What about nutrition?
The LIIFT4 Program and Nutrition Guide features simple, back-to-basics nutrition with common sense guidelines that facilitate muscle building and fat burning. The BEST part is, you can still have a life — the plan includes an optional “cheat day.” There are no gimmicks, no complicated recipes. Just five easy steps designed to deliver serious results.
And since a hardworking body needs fuel, we’ve put together a LIIFT4 Nutrition Guide to make sure you’re getting all the protein, nutrients, and healthy carbs you need for your best results.
Joel also wants to make sure you drink your daily Shakeology. Each superfood nutrition shake has a healthy blend of potent ingredients, including high-quality proteins, probiotics, and essential vitamins and minerals.
To take your workouts and results even further, he’s added the performance-enhancing benefits of Beachbody Performance to your daily routine. This performance-enhancing supplement system can help you get the most out of LIIFT4. Beachbody Performance gives you more energy to work out and helps you recover faster, so you can hit it again. Motivation has never come easier than with these incredible supplements.
Can I do the 2B Mindset with my Beachbody fitness program?
Absolutely! Usually, Beachbody fitness programs are designed to work with their included nutrition program to achieve a specific outcome, but if the 2B Mindset is working for you and you want to take advantage of fitness as "extra credit," by all means do it. Your results may be different than the general intent of the program (adding muscle for instance) but as long as you are getting enough fuel to perform and stay healthy, you are the boss of how you eat. In general, our beginner and beginner/intermediate programs should fit seamlessly with the 2B Mindset. More intense workouts may require you to add an extra snack, incorporate Beachbody Performance supplements, eat a little fruit or other "Fiber Filled Carb" (FFC) before you exercise, or eat more overall using the 2B Mindset "More? Sure!" model. Just make sure to add these modifications one at the time-and, of course, track them so you can see if they're working.
Also, remember that just because you are exercising, it doesn't mean you have to eat more food. You should really only adjust things when you need to, so always listen to your body. Key signs of needing to eat more include not making it through your workouts with the intensity you normally feel, a decrease in performance day by day over the course of your fitness program, feeling more fatigue than normal, inability to sleep, inability to focus, and feeling sore all the time (even after taking days off).
