My 30 Day Transformation with Body FX!

My 30 Day Transformation with Body FX!

Wow!! I never would have thought that I’d be a true testimony like this. I knew I’d get results with our fantastic products, but to change my body the way I have still has me in awe.
This is my 30 Day journey.
I used Body FX products regularly. Some days I’d drink a Shake FX if I needed something quick and fully nutritious. I’d drink After FX post-run to help me recover and sometimes after doing JNL Fusion depending on my time schedule. I took Slim FX on the days that my cravings were trying to take over and on days when I caved and cheated to help me stop the binge from taking over my day. Protein FX was a staple as I LOVE grain-free protein pancakes in the morning. The Energy FX got me through those long days with JNL Fusion in the morning and the 1hr long interval training class at the gym.
I was working out 5-7 days a week doing JNL Fusion, light weight training, running (I was doing C25k during this 30 day period), walking and attended a couple interval classes at my gym, played basketball with my son and went on a few bike rides. On top of everything, I ate clean almost 100%.
I had a wonderful support system with my Body FX sponsor who helped push me and keep me accountable, as well as all the members of our amazing team. My family supporting me in this was the best! They kept me going, encouraged me to stay on track, and even had to get stern with me when I wanted to cheat. I probably would have had more slip-ups if they weren’t here to smack my hand. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope I can inspire others to take back their health and get the body they so desire. Body FX is so much more than “weight loss” and meal replacement shakes! Our products are truly changing lives because we are HEALING our bodies with proper nutrition and more importantly the PROPER DOSAGE of key ingredients.
I encourage you to take a look for yourself at my website, watch some of the videos from our incredibly caring and committed formulator, Don Bodenbach. Read over the white papers and see what our products can do for you. It’s not anything you’ve seen before. People may try to compare us to our competitors, but there really is no comparison. We have what you need to feel great inside as well as out.

100% Natural 2 Ingredient Flourless Pancakes

Seriously, 2 ingredients! Gluten free, flourless, delicious!
2 eggs
1 very ripe banana
** Beat eggs. Smash banana well. Mix together. Cook on greased or sprayedย  griddle or frying pan heated to med-med/high.
Note: For these to cook properly the banana needs to be smashed really well so it blends with the eggs.
The bottom left photo shows them cooked around med/low-medium. The bottom right shows them cooked around med-med/high.

Just some healthy foods

Last week I was on an apple, tomato and boiled egg kick.
The odd photo is fish with baked sweet potato chips and broccoli.

Plain Greek yogurt, smashed banana, cinnamon.

A very ripe banana works great for this.
Smash a banana until there’s hardly any chunks. Mix in with 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt. Top with ground cinnamon.
THE best way to enjoy yogurt is to add your own flavors! Controlling ingredients is so important!

Organic Brown Rice Quinoa, Eggplant, Zucchini, Bell Pepper

My healthiest lunch ever!
I sauteed all the veggies in extra virgin olive oil. Placed them on top of a serving of organic brown rice couscous. Yum!

Easiest Pancakes Ever!

This recipe is so easy, and very tasty. Great for a quick breakfast!

1 packet Quaker Weight Control instant oatmeal, I used maple and brown sugar, my son had cinnamon
1 egg
**Beat egg. Mix in oatmeal packet.
Let sit 30 minutes while you get ready for work, go for a jog, whatever.
Cook on heated, oiled skillet. Don’t attempt to flip until the first side has set.
Serve with peanut butter and syrup, just syrup, peanut butter and honey, sliced banana or plain.
Having them plain makes these a perfect on-the-go breakfast. Make one larger pancake rather than two small ones. Wrap it in a paper towel and take it with you. Enjoy on the way to work.
Note: I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m thinking of kind of combining this recipe with the above pancake recipe. Like this:
2 eggs
1 well smashed banana
1 serving (1/2cup) quick oats

What do you think? That sounds to me like a perfect all natural breakfast!

Homemade Granola Bars

Homemade granola bars don’t last very long in my house. We all love them!ย 

1) 2 cups oats
2) 3/4 cup packed brown sugar (less if you prefer less sweet)
3) 1/2 cup wheat germ (can be substituted with another dry ingredient like quinoa flakes)
4) 3/4 tsp cinnamon
5) 1/2 cup flour
6) 3/4 cup raisins
7) 3/4 tsp salt
8) 1/2 cup honey (I ran out and used syrup, super tasty just not as healthy)
9) 1 egg
10) 1/2 cup oil (no thanks! I used peanut butter)
11) 2 tsp vanilla
** Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 13×9 baking dish.
** In a large bowl, mix first 7 ingredients. Make a well in the center, pour in honey, egg, oil, peanut butter. Using hands, mix well. (If using peanut butter instead of oil I don’t recommend using hands. It’s just too sticky.) Pat evenly into pan.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until edges begin to turn golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes then cut into bars using pizza cutter.
Do not allow bars to cool completely before cutting. They will be too hard.

Saturday Lunch

Quick and easy, assuming you’ve already cut your cantaloupe and boiled your eggs.
1 extra large boiled egg on top of fresh chopped tomato, 1/2 cup fresh cantaloupe, 1/3 cups sliced cucumbers. Nice, cold, refreshing lunch for a hot summer’s day!
*Be sure to check out my Facebook page for my weekend fitness game. I’ve also restarted the Hundred Pushups Program! You can find the updates on my progress on the Facebook page, also. I’m pretty proud of my new pushups ability!

My First Recipe Post: Pineapple Strawberry Smoothie

Let me start by wishing everyone a very happy Sunday! I weighed in today with a loss of 1.4 pounds. That’s a total of 23.9 since January 2, 2012! I bet you’ve guessed that I’m feeling pretty amazing. ๐Ÿ˜‰ My diet was questionable this week, again, so having a loss like that was unexpected and very welcomed.
Today I wanted to share with you a super easy Smoothie recipe.

A total of 6 ingredients thrown into the blender for a delicious meal replacement or just as a refreshing treat.
I’m going list brand names in my ingredients because different brands may offer different nutrition facts. Here they are in the order I place them into the blender:

4 ice cubes
1/2 cup fresh sliced strawberries
1/2 cup Dannon Oikos nonfat Greek yogurt
3/4 cup fresh pineapple chunks
1/2 cup Silk Light soymilk
1 packet zero calorie sweetener (your choice and optional, I use a stevia sweetener from Walmart)

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until thoroughly blended. ๐Ÿ˜›

I usually let it run a few more seconds after that. It seems to make it a little more frothy.

Next step:
Enjoy your delicious and nutritious Smoothie! Here’s the nutrition facts:

Calories 178 (my lowest calorie smoothie so far)
Fat 1.1g
Cholesterol 7.5mg
Sodium 104.6mg
Carbohydrates 32.1g
Fiber 3.9g
Sugars 22.7g
Protein 15.2g

This was my breakfast this morning, along with my normal two cups of coffee. Smoothies have become my breakfast of choice lately for their staying power and energy boosting abilities. The first time I drank one for breakfast I spent 3 hours straight cleaning my house. I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy a drink for breakfast, but I absolutely do!
I hope you enjoy this recipe, and if you do decide to try it you should leave a comment telling us all about it!

P.S. I have made this recipe using Cabot lowfat Greek Yogurt instead of Oikos nonfat, and Silk Light vanilla soy milk. I’m not sure about all of the nutrition facts except that it had 198 calories instead of 178.
