Core De Force: Round One Results

Well, after 30 days of throwing punches and kicks, my FINAL Core De Force results are in --- and I could NOT be more excited and pleased! 

I will be the first to admit that I am NOT a fan of cardio --- I love to lift weights, I love to strength train. So I was a bit apprehensive about this program. But I really needed something to dial back in my nutrition and get my pants fitting the correct way. So I committed to the 30 days and I am SO glad that I did!!

Round One Core De Force Results

In 30 days, I lost a total of 3.4 pounds and 7.2 inches!! One inch in my waist, one inch in my hips, 1.5 inches off of both my thighs!

Pure excitement to be able to get my leg up this high!

All of my trouble areas were tackled and toned during this program; and it's safe to say that I am head over heels, grow old together in love with Core De Force! It was EXACTLY what I needed to get back on track and really learn to love ME again.

There are a few things that I learned during this past month and I am so thankful to have learned some lessons.

1. Stay off the scale! My weight loss was pretty low; but my pictures and measurements tell a totally different story of success. If you're using the scale only to measure your results STOP. take some before pictures and measurements and then commit to doing a program, start to finish. I promise you that the results will happen.

The first time I have seen abs since getting
pregnant with my son two years ago.
2. When you don't feel like working out, give it five minutes. And usually --- I ended up killing my workout! It's like anything --- I was committed --- so I didn't let excuses get in the way. If I hadn't worked out and my kids just went to bed, I pushed play. Every. Day.

3. SET GOALS. I had a goal to get every workout in and not have to play catch up --- and I did it! I pushed myself harder than I ever did and I am so glad that I did! :)

4. Celebrate EVERY victory, no matter how small. I made it a point to focus on ONE thing daily that I improved on or that I did well. Some days, it was the fact that I drank all my water. Other days it was that I did a workout a million times better. When I took time to focus on the GOOD, the bad stuff wasn't even relevant anymore.

5. TRUST the process. There were days when I thought I was eating too much or not enough or was just frustrated. But I TRUSTED that the creators of this program knew what they were doing; and they DID. I had amazing success and results because ti was patient. I TRUSTED the system.

6. Your nutrition MATTERS. You can kill yourself in a workout --- but if you don't really take the time to fuel your body the right way, you'll see NO change in your body. Don't view food as your enemy. It is there to help you get amazing results and you NEED it to get results. So open up that nutrition guide and dial. it. in.

Onto round two, baby! JOIN ME!
Overall, I am ECSTATIC about Core De Force and I cannot wait to really see my results after the NEXT 30 days (which started already!)

So, if you're ready to REALLY tackle your own journey and commit to Core De Force, or any program, I would love to work with you!!

Crockpot Fish Tacos

I have found a new love for fish --- fish tacos that is!! <3 br="" nbsp="">
Anytime it is on a menu when we go to a restaurant, I usually end up with it on my plate and it is always delicious; it never disappoints!

When I found this recipe for fish tacos IN THE CROCKPOT I just knew I needed to give it a go; because while I love me some fish tacos, I still hadn't been adventurous enough to make them myself.

And let me tell you, they did NOT disappoint! 


  • 6 pieces frozen tilapia
  • 1 large can of diced tomatoes, drained
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • salt to taste
  1. Put in crockpot in the order listed above, fish in first.
  2. Cook on low for 4 hours.
In the picture I had this with no taco shell topped with cole slaw, avocado, fresh cilantro, and fresh lime juice!

You can also serve in taco shells.
