Ladies!!! I am SO excited to share this with you!

If you HATE dieting and can’t seem to stick with it and LOVE food like I do, THIS IS FOR YOU!

This new program is designed to help the WHOLE family eat healthier without counting calories, cutting carbs, eating ridiculous “diet” foods, falling victim to fad diets, or feeling deprived! Instead, it focuses on eating MORE of the right foods, eliminating processed foods, maximizing results, and ENJOYING life and the foods you eat!


I’ll let my 1 week results (without changing my workout routine) speak for themselves.


I was starting to get a bit annoyed with my weight-loss a year after my 4th child was born, but then was asked to be part of the coach test group to test out this new nutrition program before anyone else. I eagerly said YES! I knew the timing was a huge blessing I couldn’t pass up!

For 7 days, I followed this nutrition plan and lost 3 lbs lbs, obviously inches, and had NO CHANGE in my milk supply!


But I KNEW it was going to work because I previously lost 30 lbs after having my third baby by using the original (old-school) version of the Portion Fix and our workout programs.

Needless to say, I was PUMPED to be invited to test out the NEW and improved version > The Ultimate Portion Fix! And it was easy to do with a toddler and newborn!


Instead of just telling you WHAT to eat, this program TEACHES you the WHY and HOW so that you can continue living the healthy lifestyle for the rest of your life without ever “dieting” again!

The whole program is designed around colored containers that teach you how much of each food group you should be eating in a day. I’ve never used these to limit myself. Instead, I use them to make sure I’m eating ALL the good foods I should be eating in a day (because I learned that I didn’t eat enough veggies or protein or healthy fats for the first 30 years of my life!)!


>>>If you are someone who wants to follow a strict meal plan and be told exactly what to eat, this is NOT for you!

>>But if you are someone who wants to LEARN what and how and why to eat so you can break the diet cycle AND instill healthy habits in your children without screwing them up and creating unhealthy relationships with food, then this IS for YOU!


The program consists of short videos that teach you how to use these containers based on your goals, why to eat that way, how to break the sugar addiction, how to grocery shop, how to go to parties, and how to LIVE life without feeling deprived but still reach your goals!

There are “tracks” for those who want to lose weight vs gain weight vs get more muscular as well as options for vegans, vegetarians, pregnant and breastfeeding mama’s!

Exercise is optional with this program! So if you are a brand new mom who hasn’t been cleared to work out yet or are recovering from an injury, you can definitely focus on the food.

But if you want to maximize your results, exercise is recommended! You can get a year’s access to ALL our programs (thousands of different workouts) in our Beachbody On Demand library…which is like the Netflix of workouts or what I call “Sweatflix!”

This is BOD – Beachbody On Demand from Jacob Repko on Vimeo.


But as a bonus, anyone who buys the Ultimate Portion Fix will get access to the re-filming of the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme workout programs! These are our most popular programs and what I normally start new clients with. But since it’s been 5 years since they were released, the creator is updating them with ALL new workouts! And anyone who buys Ultimate Portion Fix will get to stream them LIVE as she films them in April and May! (But don’t worry, if you can’t tune in when she is filming, you will have access to the recording afterwards)!


One of the core components of this program is Shakeology, which is a superfood powerhouse designed to deliver your entire day’s worth of nutrients! I drank it throughout my last two pregnancies and while breastfeeding my kids!


It’s made from over 70 whole superfoods from around the world and will replace a meal, vitamin, and probiotic each day! It will give you a natural energy boost, lower your cholesterol, reduce blood sugar levels, curb cravings, keep you full, AND improve your hair, skin, nails, and digestion (aka keep you regular)!


As always, I will be hosting an online accountability group to motivate and support all the women who join me! We’ll create a little community and cheer each other on. It’s just amazing and so effective!

The groups are done in a private app, which allows you to log your workout (if you choose to work out) and superfood shake each day, upload your progress photos, and track your measurements. So everything is done in one place and I can see what you are logging and keep you accountable and on track!

I post every day (a fitness tip, wellness tip, recipes, motivation, etc.) and a daily “assignment” (ex. set a goal for the week, share a success, etc.).


Here are some other 30 day results from women who were also in the test group with me!

Best Salad Dressing Ever- Creamy Garlic

I have NEVER been a salad person before. I always got sick of them VERY quickly and if it was a salad I loved, it usually had WAAAYYY too many calories or
starches or sugar or something.

Until NOW…..

Sometimes I fall victim to trying to make yummy, new, delicious recipes that seem to have 8 million ingredients and take a ton of time. This is NOT one of those, thank goodness! My whole family LOVED them, including me, and it took little to no time to make. We changed Read More

Granola Sticky Bars by Tony Horton

WOW, my husband, children and I all love this recipe. It’s super easy to make, and my 2 year old had fun helping me put this together which is an added bonus! Try them out for yourself or just make the granola to add to yogurts and anything else really.

Horton notes in the book that pre-made granolas that you find in the store are full of fat and added sugar and this one isn’t.

Get Up and Go Granola

3 cups rolled oats (not instant)

1 cup oat flour or spelt flour

1 cup walnuts, chopped, or any other nut

1/2 cup flaxseed

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon cardamom

3/4 cup grapeseed oil

3/4 cup maple syrup or agave nector

1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract, alcohol-free if available

Preheat the oven to 350° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the oil, syrup or agave nectar, and extract. Whisk together until well combined. Pour the oil mixture over the oats mixture and stir to combine.

Spread the granola evenly on the baking sheet. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove it from the oven and let it sit for 5 minutes to crisp up, and then break it into chucks.

(Makes 4-6 servings)

My Sticky Bar

1/2 banana

1/2 cup Get Up and Go Granola (above)

1 heaping tablespoon crunchy almond butter

Use a fork to mash up the banana, then mix it with the granola and almond butter. Roll the mixture into a bar. Freeze. When you’re ready to eat, heat the sticky bar in the microwave on high for 20 seconds. You can double up or triple this recipe.

(Makes 1 bar)

Autumn Harvest Soup

This recipe comes from a book I borrowed from the library last week, CLEEN FOOD: A Seasonal Guide to Eating Close to the Source. Since I made it yesterday, the book is now on my “buy” list. I wasn’t so sure about it first… It doesn’t have any pictures. But I perservered, found something in the late fall season and gave it a whirl. It ended up being AWESOME!! My hubby likes it to which means it’s a B+ so far. All I need to do it get the kiddos to try more than a bite 🙂 It’s also not bad to make so I am super excited! Here it is:

Autumn Harvest Soup

“This autumn soup is a nutritional powerhouse. With shiitake mushroom stock to help reduce blood cholestroal levels, dark leafy greens rich in calcium and legumes to regulate your blood sugar, support your thyroid and balance your hormones, this meal in a pot is just what the doctor ordered!”

4 dried shiitake mushrooms

6 cups water

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 large onion, diced

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

3 carrots, diced

4 cups chopped kale or collard greens

2 cups cooked cannellini beans

1/4 cup mirin

Splash of tamari

Splash of apple cider vinegar

4-5 dashes toasted sesame oil

Freshly ground black pepper


Place dried mushrooms in medium pot with 6 cups water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly. When mushrooms are soft, remove from broth and cut off and discard stems. Dice caps and place back in with broth.

In large pot over medium heat, sauté onion, garlic and ginger in oil 3 minutes. Add carrots and sauté 3 minutes. Add kale or collard greens, beans and mirin, and sauté until greens are deep green and tender. Pour broth and mushrooms into pot with kale, add tamari and vinegar and simmer 5-7 minutes. Season to taste with toasted oil and black pepper and serve.

Serves 6

It’s wonderful the next day also. Some other suggestions are if you want a heavier meal to serve this over brown rice or soba noodles.

ENJOY! I know I did 😛

The Secret Sauce?

Ok, I’ve got to get this off my chest. Some people out there have/are questioning whether they should get on Shakeology. First, let me start by telling you that not only do I have it daily and declare most of my weight-loss success to it, but my husband also drinks it daily and feels the same way about his weight-loss. That might not mean a lot to you, but I know how he is. He may say to me that he likes a certain product and that it’s all good and dandy, but when push comes to shove he usually never takes it. Same is true with vitamins. EVERYONE knows or at least should know how super important it is to take vitamins due to the lack of nutrients our food today, however he always said not for him. He’d be ok with our kids and me taking anything, but if it isn’t necessary for him, he’d rather not take money from the month’s budget for him… UNTIL NOW!

Let’s face some facts here, for the price $3-4 per serving, you just can’t beat it: (Barbie Decker, PhD, an elite Beachbody Coach wrote so eloquently about the cost of Shakeology on her Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?uid=100169183370927&topic=52 ) And Jesse, thank goodness, agrees.

Here’s what I know: it tastes delicious, reduces cravings, increases energy levels, promotes regularity, & nourishes your body with the nutrients it needs for optimal health & has a bottom of the bag money back guarantee. Why wouldn’t you take it?

So for those out there who ask us what we do/did to get our results thus far, the answer is in working out to P90X & daily shakes of Shakeology (with of course Peanut Butter & Banana.) Sorry if that’s too simple 🙂
