Happy NEW YOU: Enrollment Now Open!, vanessadotfitness, autumn calabrese, tosca reno, clean eating, keto, ketogenic diet,
The holidays are over, and you set your goals for the New Year, promising yourself 2017 is the year you will meet your health and fitness goals. This is the year you resolve to never diet again. It's 2017 and you mean business!

But then you realize you said last year...and the year before that. So why is this year different? You started with the best intentions. Maybe you tried the gym. Maybe you hired a pricey personal trainer. But now vacation is over, and the routine has begun, and that health and fitness resolution seems tougher to stick to!

I've found that accountability makes all the difference. Let's face it, the gym can be expensive. And if you live in a cold climate, are you really going to want to scrape ice off the car at 5 in the morning to go walk on the treadmill, or get into a cold car after work to go to the gym, instead of going home? Really?

What's going to push you? What's really going to get you motivated when it's a lot easier to hit snooze? What will push you past the excuses to get the real results? When the excuses pile up what's going to keep you going?

I have a solution for you to continue the New Year with more than a resolution:

1. Nutrition
The missing piece? Did you know that nutrition is at least 80% of your weight loss results. I talk about it all the time because it was always the missing piece for me. I would cardio myself to death but never eat right so I was always frustrated with my results. The type of food you are eating is more important than the amount of calories you are consuming. It really is just a matter of fueling your body with nutrient dense foods- eating clean. Voila' the missing piece! I finally had muscle definition, energy, and the final pounds were coming off. So my job is going to be to teach you how to not diet, but how to create a healthy lifestyle with whole nutritious foods that you don't have to search all over God's creation for.

2. That Shake Thing
Speaking of nutrition: Shakeology. It's not a weight loss shake but instead it's a total meal replacement shake. It's not a protein shake its a well balanced meal that is equivalent to 5 salads in one glass. It has been the one thing that keeps
me full, tastes really good and has saved me from the drive in quick meal. What was once a run thru the drive thru is now a shaker cup and a scoop of Shakeology! I feel better, I look better and honestly it's worth every single penny! It keeps me healthy and its at least one meal a day that I do not have to think about. The superfoods provide my daily dose of nutrition, keep my skin glowing, boost my energy levels and help me fight those pesky sugar cravings!

3. Accountability
This is where you will have 24/7 access to me as your coach. Everyone starts their workouts on the same day, checks into the group daily and gets my support and guidance. Every day you log into the group and their is either a tip, recipe, motivation or information from me! I will teach you how to handle everything from creating a meal plan, giving you recipes that your kids and husband will eat, to emotional eating, handling temptations, traveling, eating out, cravings and more! You will get the entire whole body lifestyle transformation! All you have to do is commit to the program and finish it!
You are responsible to check in each day and rate your day and post how you did.
