Determine Your Daily Calories

If you want to lose weight, you have have to watch what you eat AND workout.  Here is a guide to figuring out how many calories you should be eating daily to reach your goal weight.  Then once you have reached your goal weight, you can still use this chart, just don't subtract out the 300-500 calories!

21 Day Fix Troubleshooting


While I am not going to take this post down because I know so many people love it, I am NO LONGER a Beachbody Coach.  I still love Beachbody workouts but I now am a Thrive Promoter and it has CHANGED MY LIFE!  I feel better than ever and I don't have to "diet" and feel like I am depriving myself every day.  While I was on the 21 Day Fix I was tired and irritable EVERY DAY because I felt like I wasn't eating enough.  Then when I stopped the 21 Day Fix, all the weight came back.  AND I felt like binge eating.

I LOVE THRIVE and all it has done for me!  I feel better than ever and it's an easy 3 step system that you do first thing in the morning and you are done!  Easy, peasy!  PLEASE go to and check it out for yourself.  Create a free account and have access to all the info you need!

Please feel free to email me at if you want more info or would be interested in trying a sample of Thrive.

Have you been doing the 21 Day Fix, but still haven't lost any weight or inches?  Well, just the other day, I had one of my clients message me saying that she was frustrated because she hadn't seen any results and she was in her 3rd week of the 21 Day Fix.  So, I asked for help from other coaches on my team that had other clients that had experienced the same thing. I had a lot of great feedback from them to give to her and I thought I'd share it here too, because I'm sure there are other people out there having the same experience.  Some of these troubleshooting ideas are even from Autumn Calabrese herself.

So here goes.  Let's troubleshoot!

  2. Are you staying on the meal plan....really?  In other words, NO cheat meals during the 21 Day Fix.  No sneaking little snacks or treats that  you aren't counting.
  3. Are you giving your all during your workouts?  Are you going full force and not just "kinda" doing the workouts or taking longer breaks than you should.
  4. The list of foods to eat are listed in hierarchy.  Are you eating from the top of the list or mostly from the bottom of the list.  You need to be eating mostly from the TOP of the list!  Save the bottom foods for "every once in a while".
  5. Were you calories before you started the 21 Day Fix way off?  If you are supposed to be eating 1200 calories now and before you were eating 3000 calories a could take your body up to 30 days to respond.
  6. Did you weigh and measure yourself at the same time of day under the same conditions?  And for women, have you weighed or measured during your monthly cycle?  That can make a big difference.
  7. Some people don't see results until the 2nd round because it takes their bodies longer to respond.  That could be you, don't give up.  Keep going and do a 2nd round. 
  8. Have you noticed any other differences?  For example, do you have more energy?   Do your clothes fit better?  Do you sleep better?  Those are all great things too and mean you are on the right track.  Keep going!
  9. Did you do before and after photos?  If so, really look at them.  There may be a difference there that you can see but can't measure on the scale or with a tape measure. 
  10. Are you sure you are in the correct calorie bracket.  Double check that if you need to.  It's on page 4 of the eating plan book.
  11. Last, but not least, WATER!!!  Are you drinking enough water?  You should be drinking half your body weight in ounces per day.

I hope these have helped you to figure out what may be going wrong for you.  Really focus on staying on the meal plan, during your workouts full force and drinking your water!

Another option, if you are not feeling motivated enough, is to get into a Challenge Group!  If you already have a Beachbody Coach, then please get with them to find out if they have one currently going that you can join.  If you don't have a coach, but would like to, then please contact me at and I can tell you how to get the program and make me your FREE coach and I will help keep you motivated!

My 21 Day Fix Results!

On May 19, I started the 21 Day Fix along with my 16 year old daughter and my online Challenge Group. I have to say, at the time, I was kind of worried that I wouldn't be able to do it. I was used to eating whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted and in whatever portions I wanted. I LOVE food! And....I have a slight addiction to Sweettarts... :)

 Anyway, I made the commitment to myself to JUST DO IT! And I did. I stopped making excuses of why I couldn't do it and told myself why I could do it. I've never "dieted" or did a workout program for longer than 3 days in my entire 39 years. I hated exercise. Seriously. Not my idea of fun AT ALL. 

Well, I have to tell you that the DVDs were awesome. I actually looked forward to working out every day. It was something different every day...cardio, upper fix, lower fix, pilates, yoga, plyo...and I started seeing results (and feeling them) fast! Awesome! And the food, well, I could really tell the difference there too. My insides felt better. My stomach never hurt and I had more energy (thanks to the Shakeology) and my headaches were gone (I used to have them a lot). I was so much happier and my outlook on life was better. 

So without further ado, here are my results:

I'm down 5.5 lbs and 10 inches!!!  I couldn't even believe it until I saw my pics side by side!

If you want more information on this program visit HERE or you can also email me HERE!  Soon I will be posting my full review and my meals and recipes I used also.  I will also be starting another round soon and would love to have you join my Challenge Group!
