If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen my latest obsession – morning protein frappes! I typically do a blended superfood protein shake for breakfast every morning because it just makes me feel incredible. It’s delicious, satisfying, and I love knowing I am starting my day with a nutritional punch that will fuel my mind and body with goodness.

For a while I was enjoying chocolate or vanilla flavored shakes, blended with almond milk and whatever fun accessories I felt like using (PB2, bananas, cinnamon, etc.). But something inspired me to try the Cafe Latte flavored shakes I had on hand and OMG. I’ve been missing out!

Any time I share this, I get tons of questions about the recipe, so I wanted to put it in one place so you ladies can try it. It’s so simple!

1 scoop of this superfood protein

8 oz vanilla almond milk

2 scoops PB2

Dash of cinnamon

3 ice cubes

I blend that in my Ninja blender, serve in a gorgeous wine glass, and enjoy! I mean, look at this gorgeousness!

 

I will usually have a high fiber english muffin on the side, with a drizzle of almond butter and some fruit on top. The nutrition plan I follow calls for protein + fiber-filled carbs for breakfast, so I know this little meal will set me up for success with my energy and weight loss, which are two major goals for me currently.

I usually take the Kamagra soft tabs, as they are not that bitter (the weekenders are of course better, as they taste like milk powder), but the normal ones do not really bother me either. I chew it and then just rinse with a little water.

Speaking of, if those are goals of yours in 2019, you should join me! I’m doing a January challenge right now in my private VIP community, Rebel Body Babes, and it’s been incredible to watch so many women reclaiming their lives, losing weight in a positive way, and bonding with each other. You can join us by clicking here – and don’t worry that we’re already a few weeks in. I run this group all year round so once you join us, you’re a member forever!

Cheers to our health, happiness, and success!

If the holidays have left you feeling bloated, exhausted, and less than thrilled with the way you feel in your body, then I have something you’re going to absolutely love.

As I’ve mentioned on my podcast and on the blog, I made a major commitment to my health and wellness this year. After spending over 25 years on a diet, I finally made peace with my body, learned to eat like I love myself, and lost 21 pounds in the process (and I’m not stopping there). I also gained an entirely new passion and obsession with helping other women live their healthiest lives.

 

When I discovered the nutrition plan I’ve been following for the past 7 1/2 months, I knew it was magic. As a professional dieter, I immediately recognized that this program was different. No counting calories, no restrictions on portion sizes, and no cutting out entire food groups to get results. And yes – we still get to have wine and champagne! It was created by a registered dietician nutritionist who lost 100 pounds herself using these principles, and has helped hundreds of her private clients do the same. And most importantly – it was entirely based on positive thinking. If this is the first time you’ve heard me rave about this program, you can get the full scoop by listening to this podcast episode.

As soon as I started seeing results (which was within days, by the way), I knew I’d want to share this program with every single woman who wanted to feel healthier, happier, and completely redefine weight loss. I created a private Facebook community called Rebel Body Babes with my biz bestie, Andrea Crowder, and to date, we have over 700 women in the group who are all actively following the program and cheering each other on along the way. I’m personally in the group every single day posting my own updates, sharing meal ideas, recipes, affirmation, and words of encouragement. It’s my favorite place on the internet and the energy inside it is electric.

Here’s some feedback from some of the ladies in our group!

 

My favorite part about this program is how positive it is, and that’s exactly what Andrea and I strive to create inside the Rebel Body Babes community. Rather than view weight loss as a punishing, negative experience, we’re all about wrapping ourselves up in loving, encouraging words and reprogramming our minds to realize that this can be an incredibly empowering experience. “Eat like you love yourself” is one of my favorite mindsets to be in and it’s what has helped me have so much success so far.

We were brainstorming on a fun way to kick off 2019, and we thought, why not create a 30-day January challenge inside Rebel Body Babes to help guide women through a wellness overhaul? Using the nutrition plan as our foundation, we’ll utilize Rebel Body Babes to support whatever transformation you’d like to experience. Whether it’s losing 10 pounds or 30, we’ll be there for you, guiding you through the whole process. Many of us will also be doing a #DryJanuary, which is a great way to jump start weight loss and start the new year.

If you’re reading this and we’re already into the month of January, you can still join us! Rebel Body Babes is open 24/7, 365, so once January ends you will still be getting support inside the group.

Here’s what you’ll get when you join us in the Rebel Body Babes January Challenge:

Access to the 2B Mindset nutrition plan, which is a one-time purchase that includes a series of educational videos (it’s seriously like a mini-course on nutrition and it’s so empowering to learn all about what foods actually do for our bodies!), a food tracker, and a custom water bottle with motivating mantras

One-month supply of Shakeology, which quite frankly has changed the game for me when it comes to feeling good. I drink it every single morning and have never felt better. It’s not a weight loss shake, it’s a superfood protein shake with natural mood boosters, probiotics, and nutrient-dense ingredients to help you feel energized and satisfied.

Meal ideas, recipes, grocery lists to keep you inspired and excited!

Positive affirmations and mindset shifts to help you fall in love with losing weight and taking care of yourself

Personal, ongoing support and coaching inside the group from me, Andrea, and the other members

Private access to me via Facebook messenger for the entire month of January to keep you on track! It’s like having your own personal motivator at your fingertips. Whether you have a question about the program, or you need some support before going out to dinner, or you just want to celebrate a great day, I’ll be there for you, encouraging you and guiding you through the entire month

The total cost for the challenge is $180 BUT it’s on sale for $160 through the entire month of January! So you’ll save $20 bucks – woohoo! And the best part is, if you absolutely hate the program, you can get your money back. I mean, it’s really a no-brainer! Click here to sign up. Once you enroll in the 2B Mindset + Shakeology challenge pack, you will receive an email with instructions on how to join Rebel Body Babes. Your email should arrive within 1 business day, so be sure to check your junk folders if you don’t see it.

If you’re in the UK, please use this link to enroll.

If you’re in Canada, please use this link to enroll.

Cheers to a happy + healthy 2019!

Please note: this was originally posted over the summer. To date, I have now lost 24 lbs, I’ve also lost 5 inches off my waist, and gained a sense of empowerment and confidence around this process that I have never experienced before in my entire life. I have maintained my weight loss all while enjoying wine, dinners out, and a bustling social life, and have had zero guilt about any of it. I’m getting incredible results and continuing to lose weight while still living my life, and improving my mindset. Say what!? You can learn more about this journey by listening to Episode 98 of Style Your Mind.

If you want to skip this blog post and just sign up for the nutrition plan I’m following and get exclusive access to my members-only community, Rebel Body babes, click here.

If you missed my initial post on why I have decided to drop some weight and re-frame my thoughts around weight loss in general, check out this post here. To make a very long (25+ year!) story short, I have had an incredibly unhealthy relationship with my body for most of my life. Basing my self-worth on the number on the scale, sabotaging myself time and time again when it came to being healthy, and continuously finding myself in a desperate place. After getting real with myself, and seeking support from a registered dietician nutritionist who lost 100 pounds herself and has kept it off for years, I have been able to totally transform the way I view the process of losing weight, which in the past had always been such a deprivation-based, miserable experience.

This is certainly in large part to the way this nutrition program is structured, but I’d be remiss if I did not mention the support group that I co-created with my friend Andrea Crowder. Andrea introduced me to this program, and after seeing the shift not just in my body but my mindset after just a few short days, I knew I would want to share this with everyone. We launched Rebel Body Babes, which is a wellness community for women who prefer approaching weight loss with desire vs. discipline. We meet daily in our private Facebook group, and in just about 10 weeks, I have watched that space transform into one of the most nurturing, informative, supportive places I’ve ever been a part of online. Andrea and I have major plans for Rebel Body Babes that go beyond the Facebook group, but for now, we’re indulging in that space and cultivating a sisterhood for all the women we’re leading on this journey.

I am personally in there every single day sharing my own weight loss updates, recipes, affirmations, mindset shifts, meal ideas, and also answering questions and offering advice and support to everyone in the space. It’s basically like having me as your coach every day. YES – I am that committed to this community.

Here are a few of the comments from some of our Rebel Body Babes who are loving the group:

 

 

I also think its important to share a few non-scale victories that I’ve experienced over the past 10 weeks that are worth sharing. Because we all know it’s about so much more than the number on the scale:

Wearing jeans again. They had become so ill-fitting and uncomfortable lately that I stopped even attempting to wear them. I’m happy to report I’ve not just been able to wear jeans again, but look and feel fantastic in them. I have a hefty American Express statement to prove it (LOL).

Feeling energized and excited about my workouts! You ladies know I love SoulCycle, but I feel as though I’ve unlocked another level to a video game recently: I can suddenly ride better, faster, and with more oomph. I feel energized by my rides rather than exhausted. This is 100% due to the way I’m fueling my body, as well as my attitude toward my health in general. I rarely cancel a class – in fact, I am counting down the hours until my next one!

Loving how I look in photos. This. is. huge. I’m really sure of myself in so many areas of my life, but the body image thing has been a struggle. Lately, I’ve been really loving how I look in photos. My husband snapped a shot of me the other night and I didn’t ask him to re-take it or stand in some weird angle to make me look skinny. He took the photo one time. Once! And I was so into it that I looked for every chance I got to show it to people. That’s priceless.

PS – check out these mini abs coming in! I guess they really are made in the kitchen because I haven’t done a single crunch!? Week 1 as compared to Week 5! The gut is gone! (Hallelujah)

Using the power of my mind to expect success. It’s no secret I have been an avid believer and practitioner of the Law of Attraction for the past 10 years. I have been able to program my mind for success in every area of my life: career, money, relationships – it’s about time I began using it for weight loss and achieving my ideal healthy body. Inside Rebel Body Babes, we talk extensively about becoming energetic matches for our dream bodies. We share affirmations, mantras, and exercises to creative positive pathways in our minds for weight loss. I love nerding out with these girls and watching all of our success unfold together.

Shopping my closet! I had outgrown a lot of my favorite outfits after putting on weight over the past year or so. Getting to shop my closet again and wear my favorite pieces (and discover that they’re actually big on me now!) has been a treat. I love fashion. Having more options and getting to play with my style again has been such a gift.

Sitting down and not readjusting my top 39428042 times. After gaining weight, I started to feel so self-conscious when I’d sit down. Is my shirt tugging at my waist? Are my rolls showing? My tops were tight and I felt so uncomfortable. Eventually, I started wearing really oversized tops to avoid that situation altogether and that made me feel even worse. Who wants to walk around in a tent!? I’m happy to report, I recently noticed myself just sitting down the other day. Just. sitting. down. No pulling, tugging, or shifting my outfit. Freedom! It’s truly those little things that makes a huge impact. Feeling liberated in my own skin. What a feeling.

I also want to show you ladies this side by side. The photo on the left was taken on April 13,2018. I found it on my camera roll and I do not even recognize myself. And it’s not just my size. It’s the sadness in my eyes. The frustration. The look of being so uncomfortable in my own bones that it’s undeniable.

The photo on the right was taken on June 15, 2018. With the exact same phone. At the exact same angle. Just 8 weeks later. Just 5 weeks into my new nutrition plan. It’s incredible what we are capable of.

Its important to note than the woman on the left is JUST AS worthy as the woman on the right. She’s just as loveable, beautiful, and strong. The difference between these 2 photos is honesty with myself.  I have learned more in the past 2 and a half months about my body and mind than in my ENTIRE life of dieting (I joined weight watchers at the age of 11 and have literally been on a torturous diet of some sort ever since. I’m 38 for the record).

If you’d like to join me on this journey, have me as your personal coach, and become a part of Rebel Body Babes, here’s how to do it: You’ve got to be enrolled in the 2B Mindset program I am following. It’s a nutrition program that is literally the easiest thing in the world. You’re not cutting out any food groups. You’re not counting calories, points, macros, or any of that stuff. The plan was created by Ilana Muhlstein, an MS RDN, who lost 100 pounds herself and has kept it all off using the 2B Mindset principles. You can listen to episode 106 of my podcast to hear a very intimate and raw conversation with Ilana about her journey and why she created this plan. It’s so good! And it is literally SO EASY. Honestly, I keep waiting for “the catch” and there isn’t one. It’s simply eating well, and arranging your plate in a way that makes the most sense for weight loss.

In the 2B mindset program, Ilana explains why we need certain foods (protein, veggies, fiber-filled carbs), and when to eat them. She empowers you to create your own recipes, but also provides a TON of delicious ones. She educates you on how to fill your plate and eat the foods that work for YOUR body. This wasn’t rocket science for me, but at the same time, it felt like it. I cannot even explain the amount of “a-ha!” moments I have had already. She encourages you to eat to feel full. She lets you have wine! Her only suggestion? Track it all. Write it down. I’m using a pretty pink journal to track everything that goes in my mouth – because as a life coach, I know how important accountability is. I’ve even been taking it a step further and not just writing down my food, but making little notes about my mood and energy level, and let me tell you – I feel fucking fabulous.

Here’s the link to sign up for the plan including the magical superfood protein shakes you probably see me drinking constantly on my IG story. I call them the CHANEL of the shake world, not only because they make me feel super high vibe, but because they are made with premium, top-of-the-line ingredients (you know I’m not drinking anything sub par!) PLEASE KNOW: These are not “diet” shakes. I would never put anything like that in my body, or ask you to either. Gross.

Click here to join the program.

Once you enroll, send a request to the Rebel Body Babes group on Facebook. Please be sure to include your order #, as that is how we identify the women who are doing the plan. You have to be using this nutrition program to be a part of my group. And it will be the best decision you’ve ever made. That I can assure you.
