Want to Get Summer Strong?

Strong is the new skinny! I am not overly in love with trendy phrases like that (see also: “Keep Calm and ___ On,” which was cool and nostalgic until it was WAY overdone!), but I agree so strongly with it! I mean - come on - let’s lift heavy things and feel amazing! 

Because of that (and the fact that I love changing lives and winning prizes), I am ALL OVER Beachbody’s newest contest to come - the Summer Strong Contest! 

Official details are here, but I will give you the synopsis! 

Basically this Monday, a huge group of us are starting a new program. This is perfect timing, because I am finishing Hammer & Chisel (and will of course post my results) and am ready to try Tony Horton’s newest program - 22 Minute Hard Corps! 

There will be giant facebook groups for support if you do one of the programs that are part of the contest: 

*22 Minute Hard Corps

*The Master’s Hammer and Chisel (My results coming soon!) 

*21 Day Fix (or 21 Day Fix EXTREME) (My team’s 21 Day Fix Results! My Round One and Round Two 21 Day Fix Extreme Results)! 

*CIZE

* or #BOD Exclusive: Brazil Butt Lift: CARNIVALE (bonus - you don’t have to wait for it to ship because it’s streaming)! I think I am going to be trying some of these workouts on days I have extra energy, because I love Brazil Butt Lift! AND you can get a 30-day FREE trial HERE

Links will be provided for each program’s participants to submit their before and after pictures, and you have the chance to win $5,000! I don’t know about you, but I could use an extra $5,000 - because I have a wedding to plan! I will post the full details about that in my next blog! 😉 

Anyway, I’d LOVE to have some co-conspirators on this mission (yeah, I am getting into the 22-Minute Hard Corps military mindset - haha!), so please follow one of the links above for program info or message me here if you want to join and have me help you choose a program! 

Oh… And I suppose you’d like to know Beachbody’s April Sales? There’s even a few hours left of the March sales, so if you hurry, you can take advantage of both! Here they are:

Also, the Ultimate Reset will be on sale starting the 18th - and I had a coach on my team recently lose 18lbs in 21 Days with that one

What is your plan to get Summer Strong? 

UPDATE: 

I wanted to share with you a couple of groups my team and I have coming up that you could join to also help getting more “Summer Strong!” 

One is our Abs and Arms group

Champion #C9 Sports Bra Review & Coupon PLUS Ways to Test It!

Hello hello! As you probably know, I am a member of Influenster, and have been given gifts to check out some awesome new items free of charge in exchange for my opinion. Most recently, it was YSL Makeup and Covergirl Makeup, but they have also recently sent me a sports bra - #C9 from Champion, from Target. 

Here’s my unboxing! 

I was especially excited to receive this product because I work out so much, and because as a former lingerie model whose been to many tradeshows, I know my way around many bras! 

I was honestly disappointed by what I received. Not because it was bad by any means - it is best described as standard. Not particularly cute, not by any means different. Doesn’t fall short of or exceed expectations. Just exactly what you’d expect from a sports bra. 

Don’t get me wrong. I am not complaining about it - I am grateful for a free sports bra, and will use it for moderate to low impact workouts. It’s just not really exciting or different to me. 

There are a few styles from the line, though, that are! 

So maybe check those out - I might do the same! ESPECIALLY since I have a coupon code to share with you - I just might use it myself! Click here to save 20% on the #C9 from Champion Sports bras at Target.com

So yeah… You will get exactly what you expect if you chose the one I am wearing in the top photo - as for the others - your guess is as good as mine! 

Let’s get to the part about me giving you ways to use it, shall we? 

First of all, tomorrow, Thursday March 10th, Beachbody is doing a contest. Anyone who uses Beachbody On Demand (free trial here) will be entered to win free digital access to Tony Horton’s latest program, 22-Minute Hard Corps! 

22-Minute Hard Corps is an awesome military style workout plan that takes only 22 minutes a day to do - here’s a video about it!

I am going to be doing it in April, after I’ve completed The Master’s Hammer & Chisel (video about that here)! 

If you are interested in 22-Minute Hard Corps, it is on sale this month as a challenge pack with Shakeology. Message me via this link for details

I always love to provide support and accountability - if that’s something you are looking for, please join us in Monday’s challenge group - just click here to join


We will all be setting our own goals to focus on for the next four weeks, and holding each other accountable to them - AND, there’s PRIZES! Who doesn’t love prizes?? 

And, don’t forget - message me if you’d like me to hold you accountable via the new My Challenge Tracker app! 😉

How To Cook A Country Ham & #BeeSweet (Honey Giveaway!)

I know I normally post recipes that are Primal/Paleo, which means no sugar added… But sometimes, I do like to have things on the sweeter side, and when I do, I want them to be NATURAL! So that means honey, agave, stevia, or even sugar, but never artificial sweeteners like aspartame, sweet & low, etc, or even high fructose corn syrup.

For that reason, when I got the opportunity to try Nektar Naturals, which are a crystallized honey pellet with a bit of pure cane sugar, I thought I’d give them a shot!

One thing that appeals to me as someone who travels a great deal is the fact that it’s honey without the mess! I have gotten sticky honey all over the place, and have also had to deal with bottles I couldn’t get open, or honey that has solidified in the bottom of the jar that I have to do some extra work to get to use!

So here we go – Let’s #BeeSweet!

Does that put this song in your head?

Two weeks ago, I shared a recipe for Ham that was totally savory. Ever eat something, think “Wow, that was really good and we hadn’t had that in a while?? and then make it again right away? That was our ham situation, but we decided to make it differently!

I learned quite a bit in this process – like that there are city hams (pre-cooked) and country hams (cured) and that you have to cook them differently! We got ours from a farmer’s market, and it was a big country ham!

First I thawed it out. Then I “scored” it, which means using a knife to cut lines into the sides. 

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees, and put your scored, thawed ham into a roasting pan. In the pan, put a couple tablespoons of the vinegar of your choice - ACV, balsami, regular, red wine, whatever you choose! Then put water in the pan until there are a couple inches of water in it. 

To find out your cooking time, multiply the number of pounds of ham you have by twenty minutes. That is going to be the TOTAL time  you cook it! 

Take your total time and subtract 30 minutes, and put your ham in the oven with the timer saying that time. 

When the timer goes off, take it out, and here’s where the fun begins! 

I sprinkled a couple tablespoons of the Nektar Naturals on the ham, along with some seasonings (thyme, garlic, and cinnamon) and put it back in the oven for 30 minutes, and then “ta-da!” Amazing ham. 

I served it with broccoli and raw, grassfed butter! 

You know that I am making “Primal Split Pea Soup” with the carcass/leftovers now, too! 

Anyway, you can get Nektar Naturals to either make ham, or sweeten your tea, or whatever you’d use honey for at Walmart, or, if you follow the directions below, you just might win one, and get it delivered to your doorstep in a pretty little package like I did! 😉 


Here is how to enter the giveaway! 

Nektar Naturals #BeeSweet Giveaway!

I wish you luck and sweetness in the New Year! 

What would you like to see me Primal-ify in 2016?
