Making the MENTAL Shift

This week was ALL about the mental shift! What I love most about these programs is that they aren't just about getting physical results! They truly help in so many areas of your life! This program is EXACTLY what I believe about fitness, its about SHIFT that happens in your mind! When you dig down deep and find your why!

Why are you doing this!? Why do I wake up every day at 5:30? Why did I wait till Saturday evening and still workout at 7pm? What drives you!? And when you figure that out, there is NOTHING that can get in your way! 


The hardest part this week was not the workouts, but was sticking to nutrition! I had so many opportunities to cheat! I passed up sausage at a BBQ and homemade brewed beer, I passed on donuts, pastries and cheese at the Farmers Market, and a free Peach Bellini at brunch on Sunday! Why? Because I know that I can do anything for 21 days! I don't want food to control me! 

But you better believe I am going ALL out when this is over :) 

This week I did not do as great of a job taking photos of what I ate, but I did have some pretty amazing meals! 


I was  only allowed one yellow container per day, which means one starch! They were limited basically to squash and potatoes as my options! But I was still able to make a great hash, sweet potato fries, and even some baked sweet potato chips! 

For dinner we followed some recipes from the Shift Shop cook book which included Peach Pork Chops, Zucchini Boats, Hawaii Chicken Salad, and some potato skins for a snack :) 


I did not feel hungry at ALL this week! I was over the bloating phase and I didn't crave any sweet thanks to my chocolate shakeology! I sometimes had to force myself to eat a little more to make sure I wasn't skipping any containers! 

This is my favorite to report!! I am down 10lbs! I am about 7lbs heavier than I was in high school and about 7lbs from my goal weight!! 


I also am down a few inches and a size in pants :) 

This Sunday I got to wear, for the first time ever, my skinny jeans! I bought these years ago as my "I am going to fit into these someday" and that day was yesterday! It was the BEST feeling! 

Not only am I physically in great shape but most importantly I FEEL awesome! I feel confident, happy, mentally sound, and emotionally stable! I wouldn't trade that feeling for the world! 


If you are interested in joining me, I am happy to help! I run accountability groups every month to help people reach their health and fitness goals! And I promise, If I can give up wine and donuts for 21 days, you can do ANYTHING! 


  1. You go girl !! You've got me motivated right now :) Nutrition is my challenge. I'm pretty confident I eat the worst than anyone in my family. I'm a sucker for breads, pastas and anything with sugar. I need to get into better eating habits. Happy Monday and your biceps are looking great :)

  2. I think it's great that you take so much away from these programs! You are inspiring!

  3. That is awesome. Keep it up. I love reading what you changed each week and the foods. I always need help on that.

  4. So great girl! Going to order more shakeology now!!

  5. Can you send some of your drive and motivation my way?! plesse??!!

  6. Great job on not only your weight loss but also feeling better and confident. I am curious about the yellow container. I know what it is and what it means but only ONE per day? Isn't it usually more than one?
