I get asked this question ALL.The.Time! Honestly, the best time of the day to workout is whenever you WILL actually do it!!! There is no magic time since everyone is different. If you’re a night owl, work out at night. Morning person? Work out first thing in the morning. Any time you’re in the mood to do it will work because, by far, the biggest physiological changes happen to your body when you push yourself further than you’ve pushed yourself before. The point is, just get it done whenever and however you can.
Personally, I like to workout mid-morning. My “golden hour” is somewhere between 9:00 – 11:00 am. I try my best to start at 9:00 and go for about an hour most days. I eat a light breakfast (either Shakeology or eggs & toast) around 7:15 and then drink my pre-workout drink (the bomb diggity) right before I start. If I have something going on in the mornings, like a doctors appt or school event to attend, I most definitely try to workout before my kids get home from school…otherwise, it’s likely not going to happen.
What to Eat Before Your Workout
The best pre-workout bite contains some form of complex carbohydrate and a protein. Here are some of my favorite meals and snacks to keep me energized during my workout without weighing me down.
Banana with almond or cashew butter (2 teaspoons)
Multi-grain crackers (8) with hummus (2 tablespoons)
Oatmeal (1/4 cup uncooked) with frozen mixed berries (1 cup), cashew butter (2 teaspoons) heated in the microwave
Regardless of the time of day you work out, consistency is key. In theory, this means it’s best to work out whenever you’re able to stick with it on a daily basis. Your metabolism does not care about the time of day, it will burn the same amount of calories!
So WHAT is YOUR favorite time of day to workout? Comment below and share!
ATTENTION MAMAS! IT’S YOUR TURN!
I have room this month for 3 more women who are ready to MAKE A LIFESTYLE CHANGE in their nutrition!!!! We all know that 70-80% of your results, are a direct reflection of your nutrition! It will not matter what workouts you are doing, if your eating isn’t in check!
So this group is for those who are ready to commit to improving nutrition, along with quick and simple 30 minute workouts doing moves like the one you see in this video. You can be at ANY fitness level and need to lose between 10-50 lbs.

This group is a complementary service for those INVESTING in their own fitness and nutrition, just like I do! This group is specifically for people who want to change their lifestyle long term and work toward improving, not achieving perfection. Serious inquiries only please!
I have to first ask you, do any of these characteristics sound like you?
1) Low energy levels
2) Poor sleeping habits
3) Excess weight
4) Food cravings
5) Brain fog
If so, might be time for a “Refresh”.
If you are anything like me, this Summer has been filled with lots of great memories which all involved great food, cocktails, late nights, desserts and it’s leaving you worn out and craving caffeine and starchy foods. All of this has caused me and probably you with some extra weight and bloat that we want gone asap.
The 3-Day Refresh is designed for those of us looking for a fast, clean break – to drop a few pounds in a hurry or break some bad habits.
This gentle cleanse consists of three daily shakes, a fiber drink, plenty of filtered water, plus a wide array of fruits, veggies, and healthy fats throughout the day to keep your energy and metabolism going.
Though the plan is simple, it offers many alternatives, including some creative ways to prepare your meals, so you’ll see that you can actually enjoy eating healthy food without having to season it in ways that can damage your health and undermine your weight-loss goals.
Watch this short introduction video on what to expect with the 3-Day Refresh.
THE HEALTHIER ALTERNATIVE TO LIQUID FASTS
If you’ve ever done a juice fast or an all-liquid cleanse that’s high in sugars and low in protein, you may have found that you felt weak, sad, and sluggish. And any weight loss came right back.
That’s because liquid fasts can tax your organs, and crater your metabolism.
The 3-Day Refresh is scientifically designed to do just the opposite. It detoxifies and cleanses, while supporting your metabolism with easy-to-prepare, nutritious whole food to help your vital organs re-energize. That’s why you feel so good when you do the Refresh, and still lose weight at the same time! Your body functions more efficiently, and it helps burn fat.
Instead of leaving you depleted from fasting, after 3 days you feel energized, lighter, REFRESHED!
Look at these awesome results and testimonials from customers:
So What happens after the 3 days?
The benefits of cleansing can be immediate – you might see weight loss, cravings diminish, an increase in energy, and even sleep better. But, what’s even more powerful is to use what you learn during the 3 days to set yourself up for a lot more good days than bad.
During the Refresh, you cut out things like coffee, processed sugar, meat, dairy, etc. As you come back off the cleanse, evaluate how your body feels when your reintroduce these foods one by one. Be conscious and really listen. It’s important not to jump back in and binge on junk. While, we would love if you did the Refresh every month from a bottom line perspective, we don’t advocate trashing your body because you know a detox can “undo the bad”. That’s not what Beachbody is about, and not what the Refresh was designed for.
So be kind to yourself. If you like sweets, have them, but only once in a while. Try to rid yourself of the dependence on these things and it will go a long way to living a healthier, more fulfilling life.

*** P.S. – I want to be CLEAR that I don’t advocate the “binge” and “cleanse” approach. Not only is it unhealthy, it’s also ineffective.
The goal of the 3 Day Refresh is not to magically undo years of bad habits, but rather give the body a clean break from things you may have become dependent or accustomed to eating or drinking.
We’re finding this 3-day break is having a profound, positive effect on our customers relationship with food, how they feel, and their approach to health post-Refresh. Ideally, your day to day food intake won’t be a huge departure from the 3-Day Refresh program, except for the increase in calories and occasional treat — you know to help keep the sanity.
This is going to be fun and such a easy week for you busy mamas to have dinner ready without having to do too much work. I don’t know about you, but this time of year is filled with soccer practice, games, gymnastics, girl scouts, errand running, etc. Finding the time to fit in a healthy dinner seems almost impossible! So let’s bring out our neglected crock pots and get started!
I will be providing a complete “Crockpot” meal plan (easy to follow and yummy!) WITH shopping list! Most of these will be paleo, but it’s easy to add a starch like pasta or rice if that’s your preference. I do that for my family too! The key to the group is that you have to actually make the recipes and let me know how you like them. 🙂 Don’t just join the group and not post, okay? 🙂
Why do it? We all want our families to eat healthier and be able to spend more time having fun with our kids. One week of putting real whole food in your body can change everything. I also think the way you feel at the end of the week will blow your mind.
If you are planning to change your lifestyle and get healthier this Fall, this is the perfect first step.
We will get this party started on Monday the 19th! If you would like to join, please fill out the form below. I will email you the instructions, so please be on the lookout. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. The group will be setup on Facebook with all the menu plans, grocery lists, recipes, daily workouts, etc. I can’t wait to get started!!!
