I am only 1 week into my 21 Day Fix Extreme program but I am so amped up about it! It feels SO good to be back on track feeling great and already seeing results. It blows my mind every time I start a new round how really amazing 30 minutes workouts and clean eating can make you feel. I am human. I have my days where I cheat. But I try to live by the 80/20 rule and I always see results so I am happy with my balance which makes it easy to stick to the program!
This is a lifestyle change – NOT A DIET.
This morning I threw on my gym cloths and grabbed a tank top I could barely fit into last summer! I wanted to try it on just for the hell of it and what do you know – IT FIT! There is no better feeling that that!! Although I take my weight when I first begin a program I think inches are WAY more important. That is where you see the difference in how your clothes fit and I am living proof of that. Over the holidays I gained 5lbs but still managed to lose 1″ off my hips and 1″ off my waist.
On top of feeling great I have a group of challengers all doing this program with me at the same time. Having them makes it easier to stay on track, get motivated when needed, and share some tasty recipes that we are all cooking up.
Back in September I was so hesitant about doing this program because 1) I thought it was too expensive and 2) I have never been able to stick to any workout and meal plan before without feeling overwhelmed or constantly hungry. I was convinced I would end up returning the entire thing before the 21 days were up.
Boy was I wrong.
I loved everything about the 21 Day Fix!! I was never hungry and getting to eat the foods I wanted, saving money since I was cooking and bringing my own meals for lunch, and the 30 minute workouts fit nicely into my schedule.
On top of that I lost 7lbs and 9.5 inches in my first 21 days! I felt so great I knew I wanted to enroll as a Beachbody Coach and wanted to be able to help others like me who thought they could never stick to a program like this.
I have been coaching since October, hit Success Starters in my first 3 months earning me a free ticket to Summit in Nashville in July and constantly receive emails from my challengers just like this one:
It makes my day reading these and hearing how happy my challengers are!
If coaching is something you are interested in, I am looking for 4 motivated people to join my team this month! I will help you get started with a program if you haven’t already, and give you all the tools you will need to be a successful Beachbody Coach!
Where else can you help people live a healthier and happier lifestyle all while making a few extra dollars to do with as you please?

Ok, now to today’s recipe. I have always loved McDonalds Coffee Milkshakes but my waist does not! Packed full of calories, fat and carbs the 2 minutes of enjoyment I get from drinking this does not outweigh how bloated I feel after.
I have been drinking my Shakeology daily since September and because of it I have completely cut out coffee. I was never a daily coffee drinker but would have one just because I liked the taste a few times a week. Ranging from $2 – $4 per cup those coffees added up! Another reason why this program has helped me save some money.
I saw Autumn Calabrese’s YouTube video for Chocolate Mocha Shakeology and knew I had to try it out. I used decaf coffee but feel free to use regular or even a flavored coffee like french vanilla or hazelnut or add in flavor extracts. Coffee and extracts are free foods on the 21 Day Fix so you can have as much of them as you want during the week.
I have a Keurig coffee make so I just brewed a quick K-cup!
TIP: Make your coffee a head of time and chill it in the refrigerator. If you pour hot coffee over the Shakeology you will lose some of the nutrients that are in it – No bueno!
This is a great Shakeology recipe that tastes just like the McDonalds Coffee Milkshake but without all of the added calories, fat and carbs.
That is a win in my book!
- 1 cup of chilled coffee, regular or decaf
- 1 scoop of Chocolate Shakeology 1 red
- 1 cup of ice
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

great series idea! can you try to tackle the shamrock shake and/or a caramel frappe? 😉
Absolutely Jaime! Both of those sound like great ideas for this series – you will have to come over and have one with me when I make them!
