Ready, Set, Refresh!

Refresh Results 0614 FitKeriLately, I have been OUT.OF.CONTROL with my BLT’s … you know, Bites, Licks, and Taste … and with snacking late at night. As a results, I have seen the scale go up and have felt bloated and just feeling a little gross.

So, when the 3-day Refresh was announced I literally yelled in EXCITEMENT! 

What is the 3-Day Refresh:

1. This is a replacement to the 3 day Shakeology (hell) cleanse. This is more complete and provides the nutrients and food guide necessary to drop weight fast but in a non-harsh way. The Shakeology cleanse was never endorsed by Beachbody and honestly Shakeology was never meant to be drunk 3 times a day. Being a cleanse is not it’s purpose.

2. An automatic reset button. If you are like me, you need to see some quick results to increase motivation. This is it.

3. A way to drop up to 5 pounds in 3 days (some will definitely lose more) without STARVATION.

For this program, you are given a complete guide and schedule to follow for the three days. You eat/drink something every 1-3 hours and drink as much water as you can stomach. It is very easy to follow and you can also workout while doing it. If you drink a lot of caffeine, you may want to start decreasing your amounts a week prior to starting so that you won’t get a headache. Refresh

For me, this program showed me exactly what I already knew, but was ignoring. I have been taking just too many BLT’s which can really add up. Every time I made my kids a PB&J, I would lick the spoon. When I got them a snack, I would pop a “few” goldfish or crackers in my mouth. It’s just a few, so it can’t hurt, right? Uh, WRONG!!! All those little things ADD up to BIG things like lots of calories and added weight on the scale. Now, I am more conscience of what I’m doing and will keep my BLT’s under control.

If you are just starting a workout program or looking to break the cycle of bad eating habits, lose weight, detoxify your body, and dramatically improve the way you feel—without starving, then this program would be PERFECT for you. I will host a new Refresh group on the first Monday of each month. Contact me if you are ready to begin.

 YES! I’m ready to Refresh!

5 Ways Water Can Help You Get Your Dream Body

Summer’s upon us, which means the mercury is rising, along with the need to drink more water. Besides the fact that water is necessary to keep you from dying from dehydration, water also does so many amazingly good things for your body.


Five reasons why more H2O is the way to go!

1. Water curbs the munchies.
The brain is a fascinating thing. Many times when you think you’re hungry, you’re really just thirsty. So the next time you feel the munchies coming on, grab a glass of the clear stuff and see if that doesn’t derail your desire to dig in.

2. Water fuels your muscles.
If your body is dehydrated, you’ll experience muscle fatigue and cramps and won’t be able to get in a good workout, which makes it extra hard for your body to get defined. So if your goal is to get ripped and stay that way, pump up your water intake.

3. Water lubricates your joints.
Does your body snap, crackle, and pop a lot these days? Perhaps you need more water. Research shows that water is key to keeping your joints lubricated properly.

4. Water wakes you up.
The next time you’re jonesing for some shut-eye in the middle of the day (or when you’ve just woken up and should be full of energy), don’t reach for a caffeinated beverage. Instead, hydrate yourself with a few swigs of refreshing water. Since our bodies are comprised of approximately 75% water, when we’re dehydrated, our bodies go into conservation mode—and that’s why we feel tired. Think of how droopy a plant gets when it’s parched, and how quickly it perks up once it gets a splash of the good stuff.

5. Water flushes toxins out of your body.
We live in a toxic world and these toxins can easily build up in the body, hindering the function of your kidneys, liver, and bowels. But when you’re properly hydrated, it’s much easier for your kidneys to filter your blood, for your liver to metabolize fat, and for your intestines to move nutrients and waste through your intestinal tract.

So if you’re trying to get in shape, and stay in shape, drink more water.

How much water do you need to drink daily?

Depending on your level of physical activity and the temperature outside, the amount of water you need to consume daily may vary, but here’s an easy way to guesstimate how much of the clear stuff you may need.

Take your weight, and divide it by 2—and that’s around how many ounces your body needs daily.

But drinking water isn’t the only way to hydrate yourself. Eating water-rich foods gets it into your system as well.

Fruits and veggies with high water content:

• Watermelon • Grapefruit • Cantaloupe • Strawberries • Peaches • Oranges • Pineapple • Raspberries • Blueberries • Celery • Cucumbers • Broccoli • Zucchini • Tomatoes


Or, you could make a Shakeology® that includes some of these high water content fruits and veggies, and blend it with water and ice. Because at the end of the day, HOW you get your water doesn’t matter as much as simply making sure you DO get your water. Cheers to your health!

1 scoop Chocolate or Chocolate Vegan Shakeology
1 cup strawberries
½ cup blueberries
1 cup water

Minty Watermelon

1 cup watermelon

Shakeology Review

A guest post from 12 Star Diamond and founding coach, Traci Morrow When Shakeology was added to our exclusive Beachbody Coach store, it made a lot of sense to me: the idea of a meal replaced with a shake that in effect, filled in the large gaps of my present diet’s nutrition. An unhealthy accumulation of days – even years – stacked up where my body wasn’t getting what I was needing and I felt it. Tired, feeling run down from my busy life, and out of time to prepare what I thought I needed – or did I even know what that was? Fruits that don’t taste all that great anymore because they’re pulled from the trees or vines too early for mass crops, vegetables that came from a frozen bag and devoid of flavor as well. I’m a terrible pill taker, so my multivitamin consumption was more hit than miss. A shake that “acted like a salad but tasted like a dessert” is what it said, and as a protein shake consumer, I was game.

Shakeology turned out to be far more than I knew to hope for. A complete system: two workouts (30 and 50 minutes), a month of recipes for both flavors, and a meal plan (through the Club) for how to incorporate the shake into my day? This wasn’t just a meal replacement shake that was going to require me to figure out how to incorporate it into my day – this was a lifestyle shift and one I desperately needed if I wanted to LIVE healthy. I love being able to speak from personal experience of how the Shakeology system has helped me regain energy, and have everyone I love on it! My 70+ year old parents, my 86 year old father in law, my siblings, my teenagers, and my 6 & 7 year olds love it too. All ages, both genders; experiencing health in a shake and a lifestyle shift that helps “End the Trend” of obesity, fast food diets, and highly processed foods that harm our generation..starting with us. ☺ If you’d like to try Shakeology for free, ask for a free sample and I’ll be happy to send you one!
