PIYOCan I be honest?  Beachbody programs helped me lose 25 lbs back in 2009.  I got back to my weight/size in high school and never felt better.  I was beaming with confidence and this new routine would become a way of life.  Fast forward 5 years and I’ve managed to put back on 15 lbs :(  I think part of that came with turning 40 and the fact that it has become harder for me to maintain my weightloss.  So something has to give.  I need to either further clean up my eating, or increase my exercise.  In my current routine, I exercise about 30 min a day, 5-6 days a week.  So I know I can add a bit more, either walks in the evening or upping my workouts to an hour on the weekends.  The harder part for me is the clean eating.  There are temptations lurking around every corner, food at work, church, parties, holidays, etc.   That isn’t new however.  What is new is my lack of discipline.  I can still celebrate life, but I don’t need to partake in every temptation.  Do I really need Chick-fil-A EVERY time I take my kids there?  No.  I need to save splurges for special occasions.  So this summer I am committed to losing those 15 lbs!  And I plan to use Chalene Johnson’s new workout PiYo as a part of my plan. 

PiYo is a high-intensity, low-impact workout for a new kind of STRONG.  Chalene Johnson took the very best Pilates- and yoga-inspired moves and cranked up the speed to give you full-throttle cardio, strength, and flexibility training—all at once. PiYo packs it ALL into each workout so you can build lean muscle mass—as you’re burning crazy calories. You’ll use your body weight to perform a series of continuous, targeted moves, to burn fat as you redefine every single muscle. No weights. No jumps. Just hardcore results.

The result? Problem areas become no problem. You can get sleek, long arms; sexy, flat abs; a tight, lifted butt; and the confidence that comes from knowing you’re at your best!

This is your chance to define exactly how you want to look—and how you want to feel. You’re in control.

You have the power to define yourself.
Now use it.

autumn calabreseAutumn Calabrese is a celebrity fitness trainer, busy mom, and national-level bikini competitor. She came up with the idea of a portion-control container system after watching a client eat an entire 1,300-calorie salad in one sitting because it
was “healthy.” Autumn realized that super-sized portions were hurting her clients’ weight-loss success because they were eating too much without knowing it. So she developed portion-control containers to help people see how simple it is to eat the right amounts and lose weight easily.

Zucchini Cashew Soup


One of my favorite recipes from Beachbody’s Ultimate Reset is the Zucchini Cashew Soup.  It only has 3 ingredients and is very easy to make!


  • 1 large or 2 small zucchinis
  • 1/4 cup cashews
  • liquid aminos

Soak the cashews in water for 30 minutes.  Cut zucchini into large chunks and steam.  Put the cashews and zucchini in a blender.  Blend!  Add liquid aminos for taste and water until desired consistency.  Enjoy!

Makes 1 1/2 cups for 250 calories.
