Happy New Year!

I can’t believe it’s already January 1, 2020! I know many of you are looking to get in shape for the new year, so message me today and I’ll help get started again.

We just created a new group on the Beachbody My Challenge Tracker app and invited about 250 of my previous members to come join me for another 90 days. This group is the best support group that you will find. Members post about their workouts and nutrition every day and they help encourage and motivate each other so you are never alone. It doesn’t matter what workout you are doing, just let me know if you want to join us.

If you are looking for a new program to get started with, I would highly recommend getting one of the new challenge packs. You can get the new Barre Blend or 6 weeks of the work! Both of these come with a year of Beachbody On Demand and a 30 day supply of Shakeology. Additionally you will get VIP early access to the new programs. Barre Blend challenge pack is also $20 off this month and 6 Weeks of the Work just released 4 weeks of the Prep!

I’m also happy to give a $25 Amazon gift card to anyone who wants to buy a challenge pack! Are you interested?

Your free Beachbody coach,

Introducing Barre Blend!

Super Trainer Tips for Sticking to Your Resolutions

New year, new you!

Whether you’ve made a detailed list of New Year’s resolutions or you’re just going to try to be a little healthier, the struggle to stay on-track is real.

It definitely helps if someone has your back — family, friends, or a group of like-minded people who can keep you accountable, and it definitely doesn’t hurt to get tips and tricks from the pros. Some Beachbody Super Trainers share how to stick with your health and fitness goals in 2020 and beyond!

Autumn Calabrese, 80 Day Obsession, 21 Day Fix, Portion Fix, and more!

Focus On Changing One Thing

You don’t have to stop doing everything you’re currently doing and start doing everything you weren’t.

Instead, make a resolution to change one thing and focus on that. Work hard at that one thing and give it 100 percent.

When you show yourself you can accomplish that one thing, watch what else starts to change and fall into place.

Expect Roadblocks and Challenges

If you expect the journey to be a completely smooth ride with no obstacles, then you’re likely to give up when the going gets tough — and the going will get tough.

That’s just life; things will come up to challenge you, to make you think about how bad you really want your goal, to push you outside of your comfort zone.

Lean into those challenges, let them push you and shape you and ultimately change you into the improved version of you that you’re working toward.

Tony Horton, P90X, 22 Minute Hard Corps, Double Time, and many, many more!

Mix Things Up

Every program I’ve created for Beachbody has tons of variety: core, functional, weight training, bodyweight training, martial arts, yoga, cardio, Pilates, stability — the list goes on.

Some people don’t stick with exercise routines because they get bored, hurt, and/or stop seeing results.

Choose programs you look forward to doing and that allow you to work on your weaknesses as much as your strengths.

Rest, Recovery, and Mindfulness

With all the pressures of making big changes every year comes physical, emotional, and mental stress.

All successful athletes understand that there has to be plenty of rest and recovery time to get the most out of their training sessions.

High-quality supplements, foam rolling, plenty of restful sleep, staying hydrated, yoga, meditation, and other recovery practices matter just as much as a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Ilana Muhlstein, M.S., R.D.N., Creator of 2B Mindset

Write Your Goals Down and Verbalize Them Daily

Studies have consistently shown the impact this can make. When you continuously state your goals, you can increase the likelihood of achieving them.

You can help improve your rate of success even further by setting a time frame: Rather than saying “I want to lose 10 pounds,” phrase your goal as, “I want to lose 10 pounds by Valentine’s Day.”

Include your “why”: Rather than just saying “I want to lose weight,” focus on the reasons why you want to lose weight.

Joel Freeman, LIIFT4 and CORE DE FORCE

Find the Time That Works for YOU

Working out in the morning can make it easier to stick to a routine since schedule conflicts, work, and other life demands are less likely to interfere with your workout.

If mornings aren’t your thing, evening sweat sessions can be a great way to relieve stress from your workday.

Either way, taking the time to do something for yourself is an act of self-love.

Forgive Yourself

No matter how prepared you can be, mishaps will always happen with your routine and your diet.

Let it go, forgive yourself, and get back to it. A minor slip-up doesn’t need to turn into a major setback.

One bad day will not put off a week’s worth of hard work!

By forgiving of yourself, you can truly adopt a balanced fitness lifestyle where fun weekends and slip-ups are not a big deal and won’t deter you from getting back to your normal routine.

Idalis Velazquez, Mes de Más

Celebrate ALL Your Wins

Running a marathon, deadlifting your bodyweight, and losing 30 pounds are great milestones to celebrate.

But don’t forget to celebrate all your wins — like simply adding movement to your day, consistently getting your workouts in, or conquering your first mile.

These small wins are crucial to reaching your goals, creating habits, and keeping you motivated!

Megan Davies, Clean Week

Create a Healthy Reflection Process

I’ve been encouraging people to look at how they react to roadblocks as they work toward their goals.

Do you beat yourself up or call yourself a failure? Or do you convince yourself it doesn’t matter and make excuses for yourself?

We need to find a healthy middle ground because, with any big goal, there will likely be setbacks.

Dealing with them in a productive way is important to your success.

Ask for help from people around you, acknowledge unhealthy behaviors, and think of ways to move forward in a pragmatic way rather than an emotional one.

2B Mindset Spaghetti Squash Lasagna

Serves 4

Ditching the noodles saves on calories and makes room for plenty of cheese. After a trip to the oven, the spaghetti squash noodles will have absorbed some of the tomato and cheesy goodness.

A sprinkle of basil makes the flavors really pop, but the dish still tastes delicious without it.

  • Parchment paper
  • 1 small spaghetti squash, (approx. 3½ to 4 lbs.)
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 cups all-natural marinara sauce
  • 3 cups part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup finely chopped fresh basil (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.

  2. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

  3. Cut spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Remove seeds and membrane. 

  4. Place spaghetti squash, cut side down, on baking sheet. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until tender. 

  5. Reduce oven temperature to 350º F.

  6. Scrape spaghetti squash flesh into stringy noodles.

  7. Lightly coat 4-quart baking dish with spray. 

  8. Evenly layer half spaghetti squash, half marinara sauce, and half ricotta cheese in baking dish. Repeat with second layer.

  9. Evenly top with Parmesan cheese.  

  10. Bake for 30 to 32 minutes, or until golden brown and bubbly.

  11. Garnish with basil (if desired).  

Store leftover lasagna in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Peanut Butter Cookie Shakeology

1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup ice
1 scoop Vanilla Shakeology
1 Tbsp. all-natural peanut butter
1 pinch sea salt (or Himalayan salt)
1 Tbsp. graham cracker crumbs (reserve a small amount for garnish)

Place almond milk, ice, Shakeology, peanut butter, salt, and Graham cracker crumbs in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.

Garnish with remaining graham cracker crumbs.
