Healthy TIPS: How to Survive Halloween

Halloween is only 5 days away!  F-I-V-E!  If you're anything like me, you know Halloween comes with temptation after sweet temptation!  I see the candy stacked in the stores and it makes me cringe knowing that my kids are going to be bringing that stuff home soon!  Thinking of the times when I've fallen victim to MY OWN poor choices of thinking "I'm just going to have ONE mini candy bar"...12 "mini" candy bars later.  Can you relate?  The "Candy Hangover"?  The one that keeps you in your yoga pants on November 1st instead of your skinny jeans?  The one that leaves you saying, "ugh, I don't feel too good!"

Healthy TIPS: How to Survive Halloween can be different this year.  You don't have to feel defeated and like a Halloween candy failure.  Here are some tips for you to take with you to Halloween, armed and ready to conquer this candy fest they call a holiday!!  It all starts NOW, your mindset will dictate your results and outcome of Halloween.  There will be candy leading up to Friday and thereafter as well!  Don't throw this week out just because you're leading up to Halloween.  Focus and change your mindset!  So...what can you do NOW to prepare for Halloween?

Here are some tips to get you thru the week!

Healthy TIPS: How to Survive HalloweenI used to always think my parents were "cheap" when buying candy for Halloween.  We always got the mixed bag of stuff I hated!  Which in all reality, my mom knew that if she had the chocolate in the house, she'd eat it!!  So...lesson learned!!  You know your weaknesses, you know what your favorite candies are, so why tempt yourself buy buying what you love the most?  I know I won't be having Reese's, Kit-Kats, or anything dark chocolate in my house to give out!!! It just doesn't measure up!  If you have extra candy in the house, all of which is your favorite kind, what do you think you'll want to do?  Yep, eat it!!  So just don't go there, it's simple!  This year I'm going to opt for the mini bags of pretzels!  Kids get tons of candy so why do they need more?  Problem solved!!!

There is no reason to keep a candy dish out on your coffee table just because it's that time of the year!  If it's there in front of you, you'll be so much more likely to grab it and chomp down on some candy while you're watching TV.  I don't even open our candy we give away until we are ready to walk out the door or until our first Trick-or-Treater comes to the door!  If you don't see it, you're far less tempted to reach for it!

If you are really wanting to make sure you stay on track this week, commit to writing everything down that you eat.  There are great apps for this that you can download and add in your phone, or simply just a pen and paper does great!  Make note of every piece of food, candy, beverage you put into your mouth and really hold yourself accountable to what you're eating.  Most likely you'll eat less because so much of it that we do throughout the day is mindless eating anyways...especially when it comes to Halloween night!!  Before you know it you've had 10 pieces!

Your exercise program doesn't take a "holiday break"!  Remember that!!  If there's any really important time to make sure you don't miss a workout, it's NOW!!  Prepare in advance.  If you know you aren't going to want to workout then start talking it up in your head NOW and make it a non-negotiable.  Get up on Friday morning, get your workout in and start your day off right!  Plan out your meals for the day, your Shakeology, snacks, lunch, and DINNER!!  Don't forget to eat dinner before you go out trick-or-treating!  ***Shakeology is a great option for dinner Friday night as it will give you the sweet you're looking for instead of the chocolate candy bars!!***

Healthy TIPS: How to Survive Halloween, dark chocolate flourless brownie muffinsThere are so many healthy alternatives to piling in the junk and candy that Halloween and holidays bring.  Yes, you may need to be a little more creative, but it will certainly pay off in the end!
Here are some healthy treats you can try if you've just got to have that sweet tooth fulfilled!

Dark Chocolate Flourless Brownie Muffins  These are amazingly careful, you may not be able to just eat one!

Shakeology Power Balls - Super yummy...again, gotta make sure you don't pop too many.
But...enjoy!  Try freezing them and when you need a quick treat grab just ONE!!

Flourless Blondie Cookies - Once again, DELICIOUS and a great alternative to cookies!!

Air Popped Popcorn - always a delicious treat!!

If you want to change you are going to have to give up a little to get a lot of good!

STOP!! Looking for an Extra Holiday Job? Read this First!

I've been focusing a lot lately on coaching, on my challengers, on daily activities that will align me with my goals...My goals of helping my challengers become healthy, helping my coaches gain success in their businesses, creating a life that I design, being able to pay down some debt.  The list can continue on and on...

Dreams, goals, Beachbody Coach, Financial freedom, Julie Little, Healthy Fit FocusedAs I've been going through my days and working hard to reach goals I've set for myself, for my challengers and coaches, I also have been thinking about YOU!!  I've been thinking I haven't extended this opportunity to YOU in a way that I should!  And why not?  This coaching opportunity is the best GIFT that has come my way!  It truly has change my life, our family and so many of my challengers who I may never have been able to help!

Do you get to wake up everyday doing something you LOVE?  Something that makes you jump out of bed excited to start your day?

I'll be honest with you...It took me 13 years after I graduated from college to find my passion in life!  I have a degree in Communications (ya know...the one that you choose if you really don't know what you want to do!).  I've dabbled in graphic design, journalism, retail, and many other things.  But nothing "stuck".

When I started having my kids, I thought, ok...this is good, I'll stay home with them and I love it!!  I loved being with them in their little years as they were home, it was a priceless gift!  As they started growing older and I began to take a look at what I can do when they are in school full time, I had NO IDEA still!  Yet, I had this desire to have something that I could call my own...something that would get me excited about each and every day...something that I could set goals with and strive to reach them.  Something that would help me grow as a person, a mom, a wife, a friend...I'm going to be brutally honestly with you, I wanted to be something more than "just a mom".  Now, don't take that the wrong way, I absolutely LOVE being a mom and a stay at home mom for all those years.  But I was missing something at the same time!

Dreams, goals, Beachbody Coach, Financial freedom, Julie Little, Healthy Fit Focused

Rewind the tape about 14 months ago...I was looking for something to get me back into shape and lose weight and be more healthy!  I started searching on Pinterest and happened upon T25 and Shakeology and a Challenge Group!  While it was a stretch for me to do that financially, I committed to the program and the group and had great success and really fell in love with the process, seeing success in others and the idea of coaching!!  And I took a leap of faith because I really felt like I could make a difference in others lives.  I'm not a fitness or nutrition expert, but I love helping others succeed in reaching their goals.  I finally found my "thing".  It only took me 13 years to find what gets me excited and giddy, and that's coaching and helping others become healthy!!

What's your passion, Dreams, goals, Beachbody Coach, Financial freedom, Julie Little, Healthy Fit Focused, helping others

SO why do I tell you all this?  I want to pay it forward to YOU!  I don't want to hide this opportunity from you nor do I want you to have to wait 13 years to find something that gets your heart pumping with excitement!

This is not only an opportunity for you to help others, but an opportunity for you to change your financial future!  Did you hear that??  This offers a chance for FINANCIAL FREEDOM!!!  Paying down debt, credit cards, school loans, mortgages...saving for college, dream homes, vacations, new cars.  The list goes on and on!  And it's available to YOU!!!  I want to help YOU be able to pay for your Christmas in be able to make over $800 or more before Christmas!!!

Halloween Candy DETOX & The 3 Day Refresh!!

Halloween is ONE short week away!  Can you believe it?  We are officially into the season of holidays, one right after the other.  Which also means TONS of TEMPTATIONS!!!  It starts off with the loads of candy with Halloween and continues with mounds of food for Thanksgiving and then on to Christmas with more food and Christmas cookies galore...not to mention the snacks and treats in every office and teachers lounge!!  We literally can't get away from it!  It's no wonder why Americans will gain on average around 5-8 lbs between now and the end of the year!

Do you want to fall into that statistic?? you want to start off your season the right way, learn to enjoy your special treats and holiday fixings in moderation and come out of this season maintaining your weight?

It's not about giving up everything you enjoy thru the holidays, it's about changing your thinking and only choosing what you really want!

So what is the 3 Day Refresh? The Refresh is a Team Beachbody Product that is meant to be a healthy alternative to cleanses that are on the market that really don't contain nutritional value.  For example, the juice cleanses, the various fasts, extreme cleanses, they really aren't the best option for you.  The Research and Development team really wanted to create a product that gives an alternative to these cleanses that will provide proper nutrition and was safe and effective at helping you with rapid weight loss!

A Soccer Mom Kind of Day!!

I'm sure there are plenty of you out there who have busy Saturdays like we do!  Especially during soccer season (for us!).  I am a soccer mom...and love it!  Yep, with 3 kids playing soccer, our Saturdays are pretty full!  We usually just cross our fingers that they aren't all at the same time!

So my husband is the one who got everyone into soccer...he played soccer himself growing up and has passed the love of it to the kids!  But this week was an exceptionally special weekend!  The city we live in has a tournament for all the AYSO Volunteers to compete in some soccer games themselves, The Glory Days Cup!  It's super fun and the parents playing have such a great time!  So, not only did we have the 3 kids games this week plus my hubby had 2 games on Saturday and 2 more on Sunday!  5 soccer games evenly spaced out throughout the entire day plus 2 the next day...quite a day!! support my soccer mom spirit...I saw this super cute hat on someone over the weekend and LOVED it...and, yes, I had to get it.  So, here's the link to for these hats, this gal has the cutest hats (and she just so happens to randomly be from the area where I grew up, that was kinda cool!)
Soccer mom hat, blingirl, soccer hat
Love the "soccer spirit" hat from!

Well our games started at 8:30 am...but I'll say, the best planned days can start off not so great!  Let's just say my day started out with a BANG!  On my way to Anthony's game, I heard a pop and a whistling sound...yep, you guessed it!  A FLAT TIRE!!  Fortunately, Anthony was already at his game and I was coming after.  So what do we do as moms?  Go with the flow and maybe bat my eyes a bit to get my tire changed quickly!!  I was able to get my spare on within 30 minutes of it and off to his game!!

Flat tire and no fun...Soccer Mom

Finally off to the games Anthony's first, Jeremy's then Katelyn's!

So in order to stick to my meal plan (I'm currently on day 7 of the Ultimate Reset), I definitely needed to have my meals planned out and ready for a day of being out!  So I had my lunch box full of meals and snacks for the day!! Tons of water packed and ready to go!  That's the only way to have a successful day at the field!
Food on the go, soccer games, pack your food for success
Cooler packed with food for the day!
I packed my lunch, snacks and the supplements that are needed for the Ultimate Reset for that day and actually had a chance to put it on a plate and eat it "properly"!  But I was prepared and that's what's important!

Lunch on the Ultimate Reset

And so the soccer continues with Jonathan's Glory Cup Days Tournament!  Let the fun continue...

The Green Machine had 2 games on Saturday.

 The Championship game ended in a tie...ready for a shoot out...and WON!!!

Way to go Green Machine!

Wouldn't change our Saturday afternoons for anything!!

What?? Crazy Offer!!

I am super excited to share this SPECIAL and EXCLUSIVE Team Beachbody offer that is good until tomorrow OCTOBER 19th at MIDNIGHT!!  

Beachbody Special Offer, $25 gift card

I know it's becoming that time of year where you're focusing on not spending any extra on yourself but saving for Christmas which is only 67 days away!  Money is ALWAYS tight around this time of year, but it is also the time that our pants start getting tighter and people get stressed out about that.  HALF of the weight that people gain during the year comes in the months from NOW until the END of the year!!  Don't be that statistic!!  The worst thing you could do for yourself is throw your hands up and say, who cares, it only comes around once a year...and you give into the temptations!  So to make the decision a little easier on your wallet I chose to run this SPECIAL offer!!

Anyone who purchases a challenge pack as my customer and upgrades to a coach membership will earn a $25 Visa gift card, you can then turn this around to use on your future Shakeology or maybe a new workout outfit!

What is a Challenge Pack?
For those of you who are unfamiliar with what a challenge pack is, let me explain!  A challenge pack is fitness program of your choice such as 21 Day Fix, T25, PiYo, etc... and Shakeology (the healthiest meal of the day) combined with a free 30 day trial of the club membership, plus $2 shipping AND me as your Beachbody coach and a discounted price!  It's the complete package!  When you purchase a challenge pack Beachbody also waives the $40 coach sign up fee to allow you to become a coach for free!!

Beachbody challenge Pack, fitness, shakeology

shakeology, U-turn your health
So are you needing to do a complete U-Turn turn on your health and fitness then this is the way to go!  With other weight loss or nutrition programs you typically get only part of the whole!  With a gym membership you'll get the fitness side but lack the nutrition or vice versa with nutritional programs you lack the fitness side of the equation.  Let's face it, you need both nutrition and fitness for complete health!

With Beachbody you get the expertise of the trainers who have developed the fitness programs, the nutrition guide and the online tools to help you plan out your meals and snacks plus the accountability of a small group and me as your coach!!  I will check in with you daily and help you create and reach your goals!

Why Should I Upgrade to a Coach?  What's the Benefit?
Even if someone has ZERO interest in actively coaching other people as I do, this is still a great deal!    As a Beachbody coach you get 25% off everything you purchase!  That means, Shakeology, every fitness program plus all the nutritionals and supplements like Energy and Endurance, Results and Recovery, etc... So if you are someone who daily drinks Shakeology (or maybe even 2 times per day) it completely makes since to purchase it at $97 a bag instead of $130 a bag.  If you drink Shakeology for 6 months you'll end up saving close to $200!!  That's just crazy!!  You'll still come out ahead even with the $15.95 monthly business service fee...your Shakeology is STILL cheaper!!

Plus, after you choose your challenge pack, you will be able to be a part of my upcoming challenge/accountability group where you will have the support and accountability through your fitness program and support with your nutrition along with daily motivation!

Flourless Blondie Cookies - Delish!!

Well, ever since I made the Dark Chocolate Flourless Brownie Muffins last week, it got me wondering what else could I find to add to my book of healthy desserts!!  Let's face it, the holidays are coming up and we all love to enjoy some sweets during that time, so why not find some healthy recipes that are super yummy and aren't going to bust a belt!!

Success...I found a recipe!  It was exactly what I hoped it would be...a keeper!!  And yes, they are made with chickpeas!!!
Flourless Blondie Cookies, clean eating dessert, healthy dessert, healthy cookies
Mine weren't as pretty so I used pic from site!

  • 1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup all natural almond butter or peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup or agave nectar (you can also use honey if you're not vegan)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup vegan (or regular) chocolate chips plus 2 tablespoons
  • sea salt, for sprinkling

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray 8x8 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a food processor, add all ingredients except chocolate chips and process until batter is smooth. Fold in 1/3 cup of chocolate chips, I like to use dark chocolate (because they're the best!!).  Note: Batter will be thick and super delicious, so you could actually just eat it on it's own!
  3. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan then sprinkle 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips on top. (The batter may stick to your spatula, so I like to spray my spatula with nonstick cooking spray first.) Bake for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean and edges are a tiny bit brown. The batter may look underdone, but you don't want them to dry out!
  4. Cool pan for 20 minutes on wire rack. Sprinkle with sea salt then cut into squares. Makes 16 blondes.

Are you Ready to Reset?  
Are you ready for:
~ More Energy
~ Greater Focus
~ Lose Weight
~ Lower Cholesterol
~ Improve Overall Health should keep on reading!

What is this all about?  (Read the details of the Ultimate Reset)
Ready to Reset?  Ultimate Reset Experiment, Support, MotivationIn May 2014, I decided that my body needed a break.  I wasn't feeling well all the time, I felt burnt out with my workouts and sluggish.  My body felt like it needed a jumpstart again.  Like I needed time to take a break on my workouts, focus completely on clean eating and recharging my body so that it could perform to the best of it's abilities!  I decided to commit to 21 Days of "Resetting" my body, back to it's "factory settings", so to speak!

I had amazing results with the 21 Day Ultimate Reset and felt truly amazing.  My energy level was greater, I felt so good...not bloated or gassy, my headaches stopped, I lost almost 10 lbs, my clothes fit better!!  I don't want to keep this program to myself, I would love for everyone to have an opportunity to FEEL so much better!!

You can see ALL the program details, what it is exactly and my journey through the 21 Days of the Ultimate Reset HERE!!

Are you Ready to Reset?

What is the Reset Experiment? (Read the details of the Ultimate Reset)
The Reset Experiment is going to be a very specific group of people who are 100% committed to improving their health.  We will NOT be working out during these 21 Days.  It will be a time to focus on resting your body and allowing you body to be "reset" and flushed of toxins during the 21 Days!  You will have support throughout the entire 21 days through a private group.  And trust me...this support is KEY to your success!!

I am looking for 100% commitment.  

I'm not going to sugar coat this...I'll be honest, this is not an easy program to go through.  It takes time to prepare the meals (you can prepare a lot in advance each week to cut down during the evening), and it is tough.  You may not feel good in the beginning as your body is going through changes of getting rid of some of the toxins we hold onto because of the foods we consume!  BUT...let me tell you.  This program is 100% WORTH IT!  All the time and energy you put into this, is totally worth the end results.
