I did my first cleanse 8 years ago and was amazed with the results I achieved within just 9 days!  I was able to lose 25 lbs, and go from a size 10 to a size 5 in less than 6 weeks. I had seriously tried EVERYTHING. It seemed as I got older I just kept putting on the pounds. I basically gave up on the idea of ever being a size 5 again. Then I was introduced to the Isagenix cleansing program. I did it just to feel healthier and to increase my energy, but wasn't really expecting to lose weight! I was pleasantly surprised. The best part about it was that I actually KEPT the weight off. I'm happy to say that I've easily maintained these results over the years and 3 kids later.

I put together this video for all of you who were wondering exactly what I do during my cleanse. I made it through the 2 days without cheating, yeah!!! I feel amazing! Energy levels are up, and I was able to lose the 4 lbs I put on over Thanksgiving :)
Note: Keep in mind, I was cleansing when I did the filming, so my words weren't quite coming out as quickly as I would have liked lol.

I’ve finally completed the last week of the 4 week work out program I put together. Here are all 4 weeks.

Week 1

Week 2

Week 3

And this is what week 4 looks like. Click here to print.

This work out program is part of the 52 Weeks of Balance Project. To buy your planner click HERE.

I hope you find these helpful and are even seeing some weight loss results with them.

Speaking of weight loss, I wanted to introduce you to my friend Nicole (mother of 5) who has recently seen incredible weight loss results from the 9 day cleansing system I use. She is such an amazing women in my eyes. Read her story below.

I am blessed to be the mother of 5 children ages 7 and under.  I love being a mom. It is the most rewarding thing I have ever experienced.  But it has also been the most exhausting and challenging experience of my life.  After our 5th baby was born, the stress of motherhood and 5 pregnancies had definitely taken a toll on me physically, mentally, and emotionally.

I have always been passionate about health and fitness and even became a part-time Turbo Kick instructor after my 4th child was born in hopes that I could help people achieve their health goals.  I don’t believe in diets- since they’re not an effective long term solution.  My motto for weight loss and good health after each pregnancy was always- “Eat less- move more.” And after each of the first 4 pregnancies, the baby weight came off quickly as I tried to apply this principle. But after I had our 5th child, eating less and moving more was simply NOT working.  I could not get the extra weight off despite my best efforts.  10 months went by- and I was still carrying almost all of the extra prego pounds.

The change for me came just this last April after watching “Food Inc”.  I learned more about how nutritionally bankrupt our food has become, and I wanted to DO something about it.  I was concerned about the state of our health, running on low energy much of the time, dealing with sugar highs and crashes, and feeling overwhelmingly frustrated that I couldn’t drop the baby weight.  I believe in the power of prayer, so I poured out my heart in prayer about all these concerns, asked for help… and the next day I stumbled upon a video about Isagenix.  I knew immediately that it was an answer to that prayer.  The fact that it was not a diet, and not a fast- but a total body nutritional cleanse really appealed to me, so I decided to give it a try- plus with a 100% moneyback guarantee, I felt I had nothing to lose.  I knew it was time to make a change and regain control of my unhealthy eating habits.

I was so excited to start a new lifestyle!  And the results blew me away. I lost 10 lbs. and 11 inches on the 9 day system, and went on to lose another 11 lbs. and dropped 4 dress sizes.

More importantly, I feel more energy than I have had in years and my cravings are suppressed.  It feels so liberating to develop greater self-control over my sugar habit- and I’m hoping to save money on dental bills.  I rarely crave processed, refined, nutritionally void foods now because my body is finally getting the nutrients, vitamins and minerals it was really hungry for.  I can FEEL the difference. The visible results are just a bonus. :)   What kept me on track during the cleanse was a clear motive that I kept in mind.  My motive was to have greater health and more energy to better serve my family.  I wanted to be an example of excellent health for my children.  Another critical factor in achieving this goal was the support of a fabulous coach and a network of new Isagenix friends from a support group to keep me accountable and inspired.

I’m grateful to be one of hundreds of thousands of people who have found renewed hope through Isagenix. So now I’ve decided to share it forward and become involved in promoting and teaching people about it.  I’m now a nutritional cleanse coach- helping others achieve their health goals too.  What I love about this is I can work from home during the kids nap/bed time- and coach people as they make this healthy lifestyle change.  In this business, we can only succeed by helping others succeed! What a blessing to have a chance to make an impact in the world and enrich people’s lives through sharing this phenomenal product and opportunity.  It has been such a blessing in my life.

Isn’t she beautiful!!!!

Thank you Nicole for sharing your story with us. You’re an inspiration to all us moms trying to lose the baby weight.

Here’s a picture of my belly. Yah, I know I’m only 7 weeks, but this is exactly what happened last time too. I started showing as soon as I found out I was pregnant, it’s like my brain just starts telling my belly to pop out even though the baby isn’t even the size of a grape yet.
You can find thisshort sleeve side button sweater at Impel.
Or it could be the fact that I’m eating donut holes by the dozen, and sitting around all day cause I’m too tired to do anything else.
I better get crackin on this 4 Week Work Out Program. Click HERE for week one.  Here is week two.

Okay, now I have some fun and exciting things planned for the blog. This month my goal is to do more videos, as well as go through all my home videos and put them all on DVDs. I started going through them last night and I already have some funny stuff I will most definitely be sharing, Sean may kill me for doing so, but it will be worth it. Plus I’ve been working on a couple new videos I plan to post very soon.Next week I will be sharing pictures of my nursery.  I’m thinking about changing the theme for the new baby. What I need is some inspiration, so I thought it would be fun to host a Baby Nursery link up party.Here’s how it works:

#1. Email me pictures of your nursery and I will post them here for all to admire. Email them to:
[email protected]

#2. If you want to share them on your own blog then you will have the chance to link up here, making it possible for everyone to visit your page. Mark this date on your calendars so you can be prepared to link up your blog post. The date is next Friday the 20th.

#3. I will be randomly selecting a winner for everyone who participates. The prize is this:

This Bosch Tassimo Single-Serve Coffee Brewer, Silk Silver ($130 value). I actually won this in a giveaway, and thought I could use it for tea, but it didn’t work out that way. I don’t drink coffee, so I would like to give it to one of you.

I hope you’ll all join me cause I REALLY want to see some of your nurseries.

Exercising is like marriage…
You’ve got to spice things up to maintain the passion.

I’ve been diligently working on a new 4 week work out program as part of the 52 Weeks of Balance Project. You can add these pages into your Wanna Be Balanced Planner.

This program is all about mixing things up to prevent boredom and to keep your body guessing which is ideal for maximum results.

Are you at the point where you feel like nothing’s working for you? No matter what you do, that muffin top remains. I hear ya girl friends. It’s called, LIFE AFTER KIDS.

Don’t give up hope though, there is a way. I’m going to share exactly what I do to keep my weight in check. Although I won’t exactly be joining in now that I’m with child. I’ll be there cheering you on while stuffing my face with carbs on top of carbs, yum :) Now’s my chance to eat what I want right? I’m trying not to go over board because I tend to think I’m literally eating for two. We like to say that don’t we, but we all know it only takes an extra 300 calories to keep that baby growing healthy and strong.

Let’s just pretend we didn’t hear that okay?

I’m eating for two and I don’t care what you say!!!

These four week’s we’ll be incorporating MIND BODY and SOUL to keep us feeling energized and balanced as we get our bodies back to where they were meant to be.

It’s no secret that diet plays a major role in getting the kinds of results you’re looking for. So for the next 4 weeks, try replacing breakfast with an Isagenix meal replacement shake, for lunch, you should eat a 400-600 calorie meal (use google for ideas), and for dinner have a small portion of what ever you’re making for the family. I don’t think it’s necessary to eat perfectly ALL day. Enjoy a nice yummy meal with your family, just don’t over do it. Try using a smaller plate to trick your mind into thinking you’ve got a full plate.

Here’s week one!

Just so you know, I’m fully qualified to give you fitness advice. Seriously, I used to be an aerobics instructor ya know…

Well, not legally, but I was.

Let me just tell you that story real quick.

I was about 20 years old, living in Hawaii with my mom. We were living in a small town called Hilo, population- 40,000. Fitness has always been a major priority in my life. I’m not one to work out more than 30-40 min. on average, but I do make it a part of my daily routine. So anyway, I found the nearest gym and first thing I thought was, I wonder if I could get a job here and get a free membership.
So I asked the person at the front desk (which just so happened to be the owner) if they were hiring. It went a little like this…

Owner:  Well yes we are, but we need an aerobics instructor, can you teach aerobics?

Me: Um yah… I mean, I’m not certified or anything, but I’ve been to enough aerobics classes to know how to teach one.

Owner: Okay, come in tomorrow and show us your routine.

Me: Uh, okay… ya… um, sure sure I can do that. Great, thanks… see you tomorrow.

I walked away thinking, WHAT THE HECK DID I JUST DO?

I was excited but felt major pressure to come up with a good routine. I worked all night on it, wrote it down and practiced it over and over.

I came back the next day for the “audition” I guess you’d call it. Did my routine in front of all the other instructors and was totally embarrassed because I really had know idea what I was doing.

Well, I got the job and taught my class 3 times a week for 4 months (then I left on my mission). Is there anything better than getting paid to work out?

Um no…

Someday I’ll tell you about when I was an aerobics instructor on my MISSION. Yes, I’m being serious, but I’ll have to save that story for another day.
