Can you believe it’s already the end of July?  I have no idea where the summer goes.  Between parties, picnics, vacations and cookouts it’s no wonder it feels like the weeks fly by!  Does it feel too as though we set out with all of these goals and ambitions to check off our list, but before we know it the summer is over and the kids  (and maybe you if you are fortunate enough to enjoy your summer off) are packing up the summer clothes and heading back to school?

I know, I know poor August can get overlooked!  So before I get ahead of myself, here are some questions you may want to ask yourself.

1.  Did I confidently rock my bathing suit like I said I would?
2. When I look in the mirror, do I look at my positive traits first or what I believe to be my negative? 
3. Did I have a hard time making healthy choices at parties and barbeques?
4.  Did I find it harder or easier to make time for workouts during the summer months? 
5. How do I plan to keep myself accountable for living a healthy lifestyle during the chaos of back to school season? 

As you are reading through these questions are you reflecting on your own transformation or healthy lifestyle?  If so, I invite you to be a part of one of my August challenge groups.  I’ve made some positive changes to accommodate the busy lifestyle so many of us lead, especially in the fall. 

My 60 Day Operation Skinny Jeans Challenge starts August 12th
In this group we work together to focus on your goals and how you can achieve them while trying to manage the daily demands of your busy life. I spend some time writing out attainable yet challenging goals with you.  We break it down into 30 and 60 day goals.  Then, I spend a few days with you providing you with information on clean eating, meal planning, preparation and more so that you feel confident in creating a manageable, healthy lifestyle:  not a diet. 

So how have I revised the operation skinny jean challenge?  After seeings the amazing results from my summer stripped clean eating groups, I’ve decided to make working out a recommendation for this group but NOT a requirement. I know that finding time to workout is a challenge to us all, but I’ve found that clean eating and meal planning are the KEY to any lifestyle change.  The workouts are important and we can create a personalized plan for you, but your diet has to be the priority!

By the way, what is a challenge group? One of my favorite parts about challenge groups is that you can be anywhere to participate:  Canada or the United States.  You simply have to have a facebook account and a willingness to motivate and help others on their own healthy journey.  Everything is run through private Facebook groups, and I will be there every step of the way to give you motivation, meal plans, recipes, tips and accountability to keep you on track. 

Does this sound like something you would like to do?  If so then message me for the details!!!!  There are limited spots available in order to preserve the individualized attention to each person.  The group begins on August 12th and the last day to register is August 10th!

Are you worried about committing for 60 days but want to see some serious results? 
Why not try my 30 day stripped clean eating group.  What is it exactly?  It is a 30 day closed online accountability group in which I will teach you the basics of clean eating.  My goal is to teach you how to fuel your body for energy, for increased metabolism, and for decreased cravings.  We work together to push past plateaus and emotions that trigger our desire to eat for the wrong reasons.  My goal is to teach you what foods to pair together, what times of the day to eat and what to stay away from and what is good for you! During this 4 week time period you will create 4 customized meal plans, learn healthy and portable snacks, recipes, tips, motivation and accountability.  You will learn good vs bad choices and how to handle social situations. All I know is that by incorporating clean eating into my daily lifestyle, I feel better thank I ever have before- and that’s saying a lot considering I’m 32 weeks pregnant!Message me for the details of this groups starting August 26th!

Thanks for taking the time to check in, and if you’d like to set up a time to chat to see if challenge groups are something that can work for you, message me for more information.
