Meal plan for the last week of January!

 Sunday is always my day to plan and prep for the week.  It's a rest day but not a rest from my nutrition or my planning.  It's a day to let my body just have some down time but also to mentally get ready for the week ahead.  On Sunday's I take some time to organize my entire life.  I sit down with my calendar and put on there the important things going on during the week for my family, and my business.  I always block out time for my workouts and on Sunday's I make my meal plan and grocery list.  That way I have the meal plan printed and taped to the fridge and I have the food in the fridge so it takes the guess work out of exactly what I am going to eat every night.  
Just look at the plan and go!
Here is my plan for the LAST week of January!!

workouts and nutrition; or anyone who doesn't want to count calories, weigh

Could you be the next transformation?

I love getting to see real life transformations!! I remember when I ordered P90X over 4 years ago I was motivated by the late night infomercial. I was at a place in my life where I had tried EVERYTHING to lose weight. I was getting married in 6 months and I really didn't want to spend the money but I really wanted a change in my health to start my marriage.
I tried and I failed.... I laid on the floor and cried.
I felt like there was no hope for me. I was stressed and desperate to just get under 200 pounds before the BIG DAY.



When I finally dusted off the videos it was a year and 3 months later. I was working and my friend was talking to me about how she had success losing her baby weight in a challenge group doing Insanity and was going to do P90X next. I told her I had P90X and I couldn't do it. I didn't know it at the time but she was a Coach with Beachbody. And that is where the "Secret Sauce" as I like to say comes into play!! She invited me to join her closed face book group for accountability and support called Fit For Fall. I told her I would join but I remember thinking BEFORE I even started that I would fail.

I posted in the group daily and worked out in my living room in the morning and many of the first workouts I laid on the floor and just laughed at the thought of ever being able to do it, but I kept checking into the group and I kept trying... I remember the first time I did a full (NO Knees) push up I was amazed. I went from not even walking for fitness to doing and finishing 90 days of P90X!!

I also learned how to eat... Yes I can pick up a fork and feed myself I was 230 POUNDS! I just didn't know how to eat right. I learned to throw out the mindset of FAT FREE and NOT eating to lose weight. I still to this day have NEVER counted a calorie. I learned to EAT MORE and Eat Clean healthy food.

I didn't start using Shakeology until my third week. I remember working at the spa and seeing the bowl of chocolate candy and my mouth would water and squirt at me!! I was craving everything!! I was never a BIG sweets eater but the processed food I was eating was loaded with sugar!! WW Meals or Lean cuisines where my go to FAST lunches. I replaced a meal a day with shakeology and that is when the BIG Change took effect! I wasn't tired, run down, and craving everything in sight. After 2 months of drinking shakeology everyday I was able to come off medication for high blood pressure, after 6 months I was taken off all medication for PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) after being diagnosed at the age of 13 I thought there was NO hope for me and was even told I would be obese for the rest of my life by my endocrinologist.

Well I proved Her Wrong!!

I lost 30 pounds with P90X, Shakeology and Clean Eating!! I am a success story!

This weekend at our Super Friday event in Pittsburgh PA we had 3 coaches share their transformation stories with us!

What AMAZING transformations check it out here:



It once again validates why we as coaches are here and that we have a very powerful and important job to do!!!

It's stories like this that make me love my job even more!!!!

Is it time for your own transformation?

Make a commitment for a solution, Not a Resolution!!


More than 70% of people who make resolutions don't keep them, and more than 40% never even start! Things don’t magically change on January 1st. You don't suddenly become a different person, one who can stick to a diet or exercise program, if you never have in the past.
That’s why this year, we're asking you to skip the resolution, and make a REAL solution.
Resolution, New Year, lose weight, eat healthy, real solution, 2015, Sara Stakeley, Sarastakeley.com, small goals, goal jeans,


Follow this simple 4-step process to create a REAL solution that will set you up for success all year long.
Step 1:
Set a clear, attainable goal. Think of exactly what you want to achieve, and be specific. Instead of,” I want to lose weight,” decide that, “I will lose 10 pounds by April 5.” Instead of “I want to eat clean,” decide that, “I will eat 7 servings of fruits and vegetables each day and I will try one new healthy recipe each week.”
Step 2:
Make a solid plan for achieving your goal. Choose a fitness program or nutrition plan to help you get there. Or, commit to using a program you already own.
Step 3:
Print or save this accountability contract. Sign it. Post it somewhere you will see it every day. Snap a photo of the contract and post it on Instagram. 
Step 4:
If you're not already part of a Challenge Group, join our Challenge Group on Facebook where you can check in daily, get encouragement, and stay accountable.

When you've reached your goal, 
repeat this 4-step process again to continue to improve!

My plan for the first full week of the new year.

Everything is set and I am ready for success! 
My meal plan and workout schedule is ready for the week. This will be a busy week! We have a event this weekend downtown with work and I am excited to see my team and coaching friends. 
Not to mention we will have a SOLD OUT LIVE 21 Day fix Workout with Autumn Calabrese Friday Night! 

I decided to join my New Year, New You group and I am going to kick off tomorrow doing PiYO, I have been sick since Tuesday with the flu and my energy level has been really low. I always feel that PiYO is a great workout and I could use the "yogi" sense of getting my mind right. 



Here is my meal plan for the week. I will measure out my portions with the fix containers but I am following more of a eat clean diet back to basics approach since I have been slacking with the holiday and being under the weather. I will keep my food as clean as possible and I planned my cheat meal for Saturday night since I have a celebration dinner downtown!


As we head into the first full week of the New Year let go of all of your FEARS!!!


OK so lets totally call out the elephant in the room! FEAR- I mean lets be honest! who isn't afraid of failure, of starting something new and of the unknown???
Its truly a scary thing to take this leap of faith and commit to a change.
Go with the flow, take the mistakes with a grain of salt and always learn from them! You are going to do great and I believe in you! Every day when you wake up and make the decision to workout and eat healthy you are taking steps to changing your life forever!!!!

You can DO IT!! And I can help! ~Sara
