What is a Challenge Group?

No, a challenge group is not the small children and animals roaming around your house, going room to room and destroying everything in their path. Although that does present a challenge most days.

In the world of fitness and nutrition, a Challenge Group is a secret Facebook group where you and others who are doing the same program (sometimes different programs) and starting on the same day can come together without being in the public eye. These groups can run anywhere from 30 - 90 days, depending on the need.  Below is an example of one of the groups I'm currently running with 2 fellow coaches:

This particular group is for Focus T25 and is coming up on day 90 since it is a 90 day program.  So, as you can see, there's a theme for each day that helps keep everyone in the group motivated and on track.  It's a safe place to ask questions, share your frustrations, and help cheer on others who are in the challenge with you.  I know that when I started my health and fitness journey in April of 2014, I never would have stuck with it if it were not for the Challenge Group I was fortunate enough to be a part of.  The sharing of ideas, our struggles, and our triumphs is what kept me going.  I didn't want to let myself or anyone else down.

The value of being in a challenge group is really something you have to see for yourself. So if you or someone you know has been struggling with getting started or staying committed to getting healthy or fit, I would love to help. I've been there before and am forever grateful that my dear friend reached out to me.

Chocolate Shakeology Recipes

Chocoholic, Chocofanatic, Choco Loco. I am a full-fledged Chocolate Maniac!

I love my chocolate and it's one of the things I crave the most when I'm bored, hungry, on my period, and well, just about anytime.  I do not discriminate. I love all kinds of chocolate. Milk Chocolate? Duh. Chili Chocolate? Yes, please. Dark Chocolate? Don't mind if I do.

So when I was first introduced to Chocolate Shakeology I was more than happy to give it a try. And wouldn't you know, I was hooked. I can drink it by itself with just a cup of water blended with ice cubes. But every now and then I like to mix things up. Here are a few of my Favorite Chocolate Shakeology Recipes. I hope you enjoy them. And if you have any go to Recipes you absolutely love, please share them in the comment section below.  I'm always looking for new ways to Shakeo.

Yours Truly,
