Healthy Grilled Chicken Salad Recipe -- 21 Day Fix Approved


You know why I love the 21 Day Fix so much?? Because it's not a DIET! You EAT all day long!! It's just all about eating the right foods and the right portions! The little containers are so helpful (and not to mention adorable!)  And I don't have to stress about whether or not I'm getting in enough greens, fruits, proteins, or fats everyday because it's literally laid out for you according to your BMI.

It does take some prepping and getting used to if you aren't used to doing that kind of thing, but it's such a fun and easy thing to learn and I love to help my newbies get the hang of it!  After a while, it becomes second nature (or your new lifestyle, which is how I like to put it).

This is just ONE example of one of my favorite meals! I love experimenting and coming up with new food creations and using my containers to fit certain types of foods into meals that I would have never been creative enough to think of before trying this program!  The awesome part is, the program also comes with 7 different 30 minute workouts (including cardio, pilates, yoga, upper/lower fix, etc), an online support and accountability group, a month's worth of Shakeology and me as your FREE online coach to help guide you to reach your weight loss, health and fitness goals... no matter how big or small they may be.

I'm currently looking for people who are interested in reserving one of the spots in my online accountability group for this program, so if you'd be open to learning a little more about how they work, please just simply fill out the application below and I will contact you with the details and help you come up with a plan of action to reach your goals! :)

Need Support, Motivation and Accountability to Lose Weight & Get Healthy!? Let Me Be Your Free Online Coach!


As a busy mom and wife, the STRUGGLE is REAL!!! I know that you are being pulled in a million different directions and the last thing that you want to worry about is what you are eating and when you are fitting in your workout.
You aren't getting enough sleep, the kids are misbehaving and they won't eat anything that resembles a vegetable. Believe me... I know what it feels like to constantly wish you could fit in those pre-baby jeans, wish you had the energy to chase after your little ones all day and be able to cook healthy meals for yourself and your family that the kids will actually eat and enjoy!
You also don't want to invest in a fitness program or even Shakeology because you are afraid you won't like it, you won't actually start or finish it and you don't want to WASTE money that can be used for the family. I get it, I know how you feel. I mean I drug my FEET FOREVER about Shakeology! I had honestly never done a meal replacement shake before so I didn't know what to expect. I finally decided, what the heck, I can give it 30 days and see what happens.
It's been one of the best decisions of my life and I can't begin to explain how much it's truly helped me! I feel so much better, have way more energy, have clearer skin, and most importantly am setting the example for my children so that they can learn to live healthy, happy lives.
I'm SO PROUD of my current challengers who are losing weight, fitting into their pre-baby jeans, learning to prepare and cook healthy meals, stick to a simple workout routine and stay accountable in our private support group full of other women with similar goals and struggles! The reason this really works is because you're NOT going into this ALONE!! You have me as your free COACH to guide you, help you, motivate you and reward you for your hard work and you have a group full of others who are committing to do the same!
I would love to help you! If you're interested in reserving a spot in my upcoming group, want more information and/or want to discuss a plan of action for your personal goals, please apply! These groups tend to fill up quickly, so don't put it off. Do if for YOURSELF! (Here is my detailed description of what you will receive as a challenger in one of my groups!)

Don't Feel Like Working Out? Can't Find Time? Need Accountability? My Advice 3 Months Post Partum:

Poll time:
What is your #1 reason that you don't workout regularly or can't seem to stick to a workout program, gym routine or whatever you have tried to do for regular exercise?
A. I don't have time
B. no accountability (I need someone who will make me feel like I have to do it and stick with it everyday)
C. I don't know what kind of exercises to do or how much of it to do in order to really see any results
D. Other (give your reason below)



I know what I always struggled with most, in the past was B (accountability!!!). I grew up doing gymnastics and cheerleading and had pretty strict coaches who were ALWAYS pushing me, testing me, checking up in my progress (or lack of it at times) and once I had kids and was on my own, I found it hard to motivate myself to workout regularly, because there was absolutely no one that I had to check in with or be held accountable to... No one would even know if I got my workout in or skipped it each day, except for myself...

That is why I LOVE having my challengers join me on this journey of mine!! They hold me just as accountable as I hold them! Today was one of those days where I didn't get a lot of sleep last night, it was rainy (for like the 5th day in a row!) and I knew all day I just wasn't going to be able to find the motivation to push play and workout!

But then I began to see all of my challengers posting their sweaty workout pics or just saying how great they felt that they got their workout in for the day and I could t be the one to have to post and tell them that I just couldn't fit my workout in today!

So at 7pm, I put in my T25 DVD, gave it my all and was so proud if myself afterwards! I told my group that I almost skipped today, but I didn't want to let them down!!

Okay, so that's my rant for the night!! I'm all pumped up now and feeling accomplished! It's the little things...

How to Succeed at Your Goals and Dreams -- Personal Development

Which one should I read first?? 

I am becoming a personal development addict! Which is an amazing thing!! I am learning so much and growing as an individual, a mother, a wife and a leader!!

As a Beachbody Coach, I take my job very seriously! I have people relying on me to help them achieve some serious goals!! Some people come into this health & fitness journey and are just looking to lose the last 10-15 pounds of baby weight, while others have struggled with some severe health issues due to their unhealthy lifestyles, watched family members suffer from poor health choices and not only want to make a change, but know that they NEED to!!


And I'm going to be up front and completely honest here... the hardest part of coaching for me is seeing the potential in someone, knowing that they could completely do a 180 and become that healthy, happy, active person that they dream and wish to be everyday, but hearing them make excuse after excuse of why they won't or can't change just kills me!

Sound familiar to any of you out there? Do you find yourself constantly THINKING or WISHING you were thinner, healthier, happier, or more energetic? Well guess what??!! I have the answer for you on how you can do that:

вєℓιєνє ιи уσυяѕєℓf!!!!

One of the main things that I've taken away from my personal development is that YOU and only YOU are in complete control over your life and the decisions that you make! No one can make you depressed or unhealthy, no one can tell you what you choose to spend your money on, YOU decide every single day what your priorities are in life and you CHOOSE to make excuses in certain areas of your life, because let's face it...it's a whole lot easier to do, right?

But the truth is...when you decide that you're in complete control of your life and the choices you make and are sick and tired of your own excuses, then that is when the magic happens!!

You can do whatever you put your mind to! So, don't you ever forget that!!

Tomorrow is a brand new day, so wake up with a brand new mindset! Set some positive goals and start making progress towards the YOU that you wish to be!

Make Money From Home Just By Drinking Shakeology, Working Out and Helping Others do the Same


I am looking for 5 people who are interested in learning how to start their own business from home, "working" as much or as little as little as your schedule allows, making an extra income by simply drinking Shakeology, working out at home and helping to support and motivate others to do the same!

You get the opportunity to make a huge impact on the lives of others, share products that WORK and meet some of the most positive, uplifting, amazing people along the way!!

Beachbody isn't just a company, it's literally like a big, huge, happy family! It's impossible to understand what I'm talking about until you become a part of it!

So if this post gives you even the slightest bit of interest or you're curious about hearing a little more about this Beachbody "coaching" opportunity, don't hesitate to shoot me an email (Crystal.Laiti@yahoo.com) or APPLY HERE so we can chat more! I cannot wait to find the 5 lucky newbies to join my team and become *RΩCҜSTΔR* coaches, ready to change your life and the lives of others along the way!
