Cherry Blossom Smoothie Bowl

Pro tip: To make the bowl thick enough to support the cherries and strawberries, we used three cups of ice. If making this as a shake, you may prefer to only use one cup of ice.

PiYo Workout

PiYo workout is a program that improves your strength and reduces inches. You’ll look slimmer and more firm after the program.

It’s key to find a workout that you like to do. Otherwise, we start and stop too easily. A program that’s good for one person, might not be as good for another person. The solution is finding what works for YOU.

As a coach and trainer, I’m always trying to find workouts that help my clients and Beachbody customers. Not all workouts are programs that I prefer to do but I try them so I know what’s included. Personally, I’m a lover of Insanity and HIIT workouts … I like athletic workouts but programs like PiYo (yoga, pilates) are so hard for me.

I committed this workout so I could show my results and help answer questions. I’m almost done .. 3 more weeks and I feel so STRONG! It’s amazing that this low impact workout can provide such amazing results.

If you need to lose inches in your mid-section and thighs … then this is the program for you! There is a modifier if you need beginner options (which I followed a lot in the beginning!!). I’ve noticed a difference in my abs and lower back (also know as muffin top and love handles!) and my glutes (also known as butt) is firmer and tighter. I’ll post my final measurements and improvements at the end of the program.

Check out this video to learn more about PiYo. If you have questions, email me and if you decide to do the program then I will send you my personal meal plan and help you create a lifestyle plan to get the best results (if you want the help … if not, just follow the program guide and know I’m here if you have questions)

Kristen 21 Day Fix Success Story

Kristen 21 Day Fix Success StoryWe are all BUSY … whether it’s a move like Kristen’s story or it’s carpooling with kids, traveling for work … we tend to eat out more than we should (want). These eating habits can catch up with us … in more ways than one! I’m so glad Kristen decided to try the 21 day fix and learned healthier habits.

Kristen went through a huge move that kept her from cooking at home. As a result, she would eat out regularly and wasn’t making the healthiest choices! Once she saw the results 21 Day Fix was giving other people, she decided to try it for herself. In 21 days, she lost 11 pounds and 13 inches!

She said, “The 21 Day Fix helped me in so many ways. Not only am I able to feel comfortable for the first time in years, but my eating habits are so much better. This program isn’t like other diets. It’s a way of life.”

Way to go, Kristen!

MOM Makeover with Missy Kent

>>>> Health, Happiness & Home Organization.

Do you want (need) to get more organized … have more energy … get more ME time … feel more happiness, fulfillment … MORE purpose in your life? Our 30 Day MOM Makeover group is what you need. Join us!

I’ve been through many stages of motherhood. I have a 19 year old daughter in college and a 15 year old boy in high school.

I’ve been there ….

Feeling clueless — being excited about becoming a mom — wearing the dirty shirt after burping the baby and hoping it doesn’t smell (HA!) — feeling exhausted all day — feeling like I can’t do anything right — carpooling everyone everywhere — trying to keep the family organized — feeling completely unorganized — wanting to be happy but feeling lost — beaming with joy and pride from graduations and kid accomplishments — feeling sad and lost when my daughter left for college — struggling with aging, sick parents while still having to take care of my kids and husband — feeling happy to be a mom while also wanting more for myself …

—- We feel so many emotions being a mom and, at the end of the day, we know it’s one of the greatest gifts we’ve been given. However, being a mom doesn’t mean that you can’t think about yourself and put yourself first. I believe that when we take care of ourselves, and sometimes that means putting our needs first, then we will be our BEST self and that’s who we give our family … and don’t we always want the best for them?

I’m using my 20+ years of experience and focusing on these key areas of life >>> Health, Happiness and Home organization

Our private, online group of MOMS will help one another get motivated, stay accountable and encourage our BEST life! We begin Monday, January 18th.

We will share ….

– Effective ways to get (and stay) organized.
– Priorities … learning how (and why) to say no and feel good about it!
– Simple solutions to improve your energy and live healthier.
– Easy recipes, healthy foods and meal guides.
– How to find YOUR happiness, YOUR purpose and create a plan to be YOUR best!

I will Coach 20 moms who commit to the following:

  • Daily check-in with our FB group to help yourself and others stay encouraged
  • Exercise 3-4 days per week, at least 10-minutes per workout – I’ll provide simple workout videos in the private group that can be done at home, your office or gym or you can do whatever workout you are currently doing
  • Weekly improvement – you’ll have a small list to give you ideas
  • Replace one meal or junk food (evening snack) with Shakeology
  • Dedicate 5-10 minutes per day to our MOM journal; more details will be given once we begin the group … but it’ll be FUN and simple :)!!

To live better, you have to be better and often that means knowing better. Better solutions, better resources, better ways to accomplish goals, better connections with other moms. When you know better, you do better. Let’s be better together!

There is an investment to become a member of our MOM Makeover group. My coaching is free (normally $60 per hour). You purchase Shakeology at my online store and this will replace either a meal or junk food, therefore you won’t be spending any additional money … you buy less at the grocery store.

Email me, missy@workoutwithmissy.com to join. Please write MOM-maker in the subject line. I’ll respond within 24-hours. Thank you! Missy

How to Use Shakeology in Your Daily Life

1. As a supplement meal: One of the best and most popular ways to use Shakeology is to prepare it as a healthy shake for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Shakeology formulas vary from 140-170 calories depending on the formula. Adding extra calorie dense ingredients like fruit, nut-butters, or milk gets you to a healthy caloric content that is both highly satisfying and nutritious.

2. Snack: Shakeology is an incredibly nutrient-rich snack, perfect for someone that’s doing an intense workout program like P90X. Since Shakeology doesn’t have much fat, its nutrients are put to use very quickly by your body. This makes it an ideal pick-me-up snack when you’re on the go. You can either make yourself a ½ scoop serving of Shakeology or a full scoop if you’re really famished. The key to losing weight is to eat small meals throughout the day, so if you feel like you’re getting hungry Shakeology is a good, convenient option; a Shakeology snack will keep your metabolism revved and your body burning fat.

3. Pre-Workout Supplement: If you’re doing an intense workout program, a good way to use Shakeology is as a pre-workout snack, taken about 1 hour prior to your warm-up. Your workout will help you get the most out of Shakeology, and Shakeology will help you during the latter part of your workout, especially if your glycogen stores have been slightly depleted.

4. Post-Workout Supplement: When it comes to a serious workout, one of the many reasons trainers like P90X’s Tony Horton and RevAbs’ Brett Hoebel recommend drinking Shakeology post-workout is because your body is in a state of depletion. Here are several reasons why Shakeology is a good post-workout supplement:

  • Calories: Many people make the mistake of eating too many calories afterward. The general range is 100 to 250 calories, post-workout. At 140 to 170 calories, Shakeology fills this requirement perfectly.
  • Protein: Protein is critical after a tough workout because it works to repair your muscles. With 15 to 18 grams of quality protein in each serving, Shakeology works great as a muscle building tool.
  • Replenish Electrolytes: The magnesium, sodium, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes in Shakeology will boost your electrolytes

5. Natural Energy Boost: Next time the 3 PM slump rolls around, make Shakeology; it’s better for an energy boost than a lot of energy drinks! While something like Red Bull® might give you more up-front punch, Shakeology will give you sustained energy because it’s providing nutrients your body needs to get things done, and it has a low glycemic impact, which helps keep blood sugar levels stable.

6. Late Night Sweet Cravings: Sometimes at the end of the day you crave something sweet; this happens to the best of us. Instead of grabbing something high in sugar and low in nutrition, whip yourself up some Shakeology with your favorite recipe. This Double Chocolate Recipe is sure to knock your chocolate craving out of the park: 1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology, 1 cup chocolate almond milk, 1 ½ cup ice. True, this isn’t the most opportune time to eat for weight loss – try to keep your larger meals earlier, so you have time to burn off the calories before bed; but drinking Shakeology is better than binging on cake or brownies!

7. Healthy Dessert: Finally, even the most dedicated dieter needs to let loose every now and then. There are plenty of creative dessert recipes you can make with Shakeology found right here on the blog, such as pies, peanut butter cups and easy chocolate mousse in the ‘Recipes’ category. The best part is all of the desserts have 70+ healthy ingredients in them. See, you can have your cake and eat it too!
