Weightloss transformation and now it is your turn

Every day closer to my goals. 
This picture on left is me before: Constantly gave excuses on why I should be able to eat what I want. I used to say: "I deserve to live!" Boy did I get a slap in the face when that "living" turned out to be killing me. Besides, I knew I was lying to myself and I knew how unhappy and miserable I was. I was so tired all the time, yet I had so much trouble sleeping. This picture was taken 6 weeks post op of having my cancer‬ removed.

Picture on right ...Now: Happy, Healthy, Fit, and now you couldn't pay me to put that genetically modified, enriched, full of sugar, crappy food in my mouth. Now I still eat what I love, I learned tricks along the way I share them in my book Nourish @nourishtheworkshop
80% Nutrition and 20% exercise is where it is at and I could not do it without all the love, inspiration and motivation from my team. Accountability‬ is where it is at. If I didn't have it, I am not sure how far along I would be.
My next accountability group is starting up just after the labor day holiday. If you are the person on the left... Or somewhere in between...I Would love to help you, while working at it right along with you. ‪#‎YouCanDoIt‬
You know what to do!

Banana Berry Power Bowl

SO what is for breakfast? I start my day with a superfood shake and then I go workout. When I come back, I am ready for some packed full of protein yumminess and I eat something like this on most days. Here was today's Banana Berry Power Bowl, When you eat this you get all your daily nutrients in one bowl. It has 5 salads, all your polynutrients, omega 3's, antioxidants, and cancer fighting superfoods. 

Christi's Power Granola

Makes a big batch 

1 cup coconut oil
3 cups slivered almonds
1 cup steel cut oats

Coconut flakes

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
Melt the coconut oil and stir together with almonds,  oats, and maple syrup. 
Place on a large cookie sheet or pizza pan spreading it out as much as you can.

Bake and every 15 minutes pull out and flip over. Do this for 45 minutes. Now pull it out and flip and top with coconut flakes. Place back in the oven for 10 minutes.. check the flakes, if they are not golden, place back in for 5 minutes at a time until golden brown. 

Stir granola all together and let cool for 10 minutes.

Hip Hop Dance your way to fitness

Hey everyone!  I want to just let you know of a new group that will be starting soon.
If you like to dance, love Zumba or just want a break from the traditional workout (no lunges, squats or push ups here), you are going to absolutely LOVE this! I cannot tell you enough how this program is SO so much fun ... and absolutely perfect to get the kids involved! Who doesn't love to dance?!
What is different about this program? It is choreographed hip hop by professional dancers to current popular music that is on the radio now. :)
I will be hosting an exclusive challenge group starting the day after Labor day (to allow some holiday fun first) September 8th where we will all dance our way to a bikini body along with a brand new complete meal plans from me!
Extra perk: 
Who wants to come dance with me?

Complete mind and body transformation

10 months ago I made one small shift that completely transformed me.��
��My body changed, 
��my energy changed. 
��My relationships improved. 
��My friendships increased.
�� In 10 short months I ranked in the top 300 (out of 350,000)in a company of incredible health & fitness professionals.��
I'm surrounded by positivity, 
��incredible friends with the same passions, ✈
I am traveling the globe, and it is my job to work on bettering myself so I can continue to hold space for others. ��

If you want to be:
 �� healthy, 
:) happy, 
then this is your sign. My personal coach apprenticeship is starting soon. 
✔ Don't miss the boat. ⛵
Head on over to www.nourishthecommunity.comand click the "Take the challenge" button. ��

What has changed in my health and fitness in 10 months

10 months, 216 souls. 
When I joined 10 months ago, I was just joining to continue my cancer fight. Never did I think I would end up coaching and leading so many amazing beautiful people. So what has changed? 
I am in the best shape of my life and that includes high school. I wake up happy, driven, and with a purpose. I am now a 2 year cancer survivor! I went from participating in yoga challenges to leading several each month. I have met some of my best friends who I would never have met if it wasn't for this journey.

Maybe your life is fine and you are content right where you are. I wasn't. I knew there was more. There was no need for money or a job to be added, but I simply wanted to take care of my health and fitness and 3 weeks into my journey I knew I could also help others. SO I decided to be as transparent with my journey as I could. The result... priceless. SO much empowerment and encouragement and love come from my team. I am encouraged to better myself daily. I am not perfect. I have my own struggles but that is what is so great about having this amazing ‪#‎TeamNourish‬ by my side. I am growing, learning, bettering myself. Does this sound like something you would like? 
Feel free to visit any one of my tribes pages, about half are listed on this photo.. I couldn't fit them all. Come see what we are about! I would love to see if our team is a fit for you.

I am getting ready to book my challenges next month and would love to have you co-host with me. Drop me an email to and let's chat!

Dream job, dream team, dream life, why not you?

Part of me wants to shrivel up & die sharing this �� & the other part is excited to share, because I know how many people this can help.
This is a birds-eye view of just the beginning potential you have when deciding to share your fitness journey while helping others. This is what has happened to me in the 9 months since I started. On month 10 now, the happiest I have ever been. The fittest I have ever been. My life is full of the most amazing souls who fill my heart with joy and uplift and motivate me daily.
Sure there are plenty of others who do what I do who have made more than me and on the same note others who have made far less, but I can only share MY journey & MY experience & how I turned my journey into something positive. Something that has helped me and so many others in the most amazing way.
My work is about helping people, PERIOD, end of story. 
I live in abundance because I offer gratitude, bless & take care of my‪#‎TeamNourish‬ and care deeply about my coaches & challengers. I also wake up each day and choose to take care of myself.

I do not coach those who just want to make money. You must have purpose & passion! PLEASE only reach out if you want to help others & commit to living healthy.
Do you have to be a nutrition/fitness saint everyday? NO! BUT you HAVE to be AUTHENTIC & you have to be passionate about being a good example to others AND YOURSELF!!!
If you're not there yet there is no better way then stepping into a coaching role and changing your life by default because of a choice you made. I posted earlier about an opportunity to learn more, so if you didn't see it look back on my feed.

I can only help people LIKE ME; those who are either fitness professionals, yoga teachers, influencers, &/OR those who want to get fit AND WANT to change their lives without excuses. 
If you are ready to make a difference. Contact me at

A box that reignites your soul

Hello beautiful souls! 
Today I am super excited to tell you about Hey Soul
They truly have boxed up inspiration and deliver it to your door. HeySoul launched in 2014, when two twenty-something working gals  were drained, unfulfilled, disconnected and desperate to reconnect to the heart & soul they checked at the door and forgot about each day before going to work. They began the search for meaning, self-discovery and a way to reconnect. 
They came up with themed boxes with ingredients for treating your soul! What an amazing idea!
I received a box from them to review and it was the most amazing experience to open. So I documented the process.
Every detail was thought out in this box that is designed to be a positive‬ disruption in your life. Curated with thoughtfulness and intention to bring you closer to this box's theme which is Purpose‬ 
When I first opened my box there was a lovely handmade card for me.
Even the envelope was a pleasure to open. They thought of every detail.
The front of the card reads:
Inside I was asked to find a quiet space and to turn off all technology and dive I to his ‪#‎selflove‬ experience. I did stop to take a couple shots so you could see the wrapping and amazing handmade card they sent me.
What did I find inside? 
A note describing what this box was about. I kept it and put it on my dream board.

-An amazing book written to help you find your purpose. 
The purpose of this book is to stir your creative juices and to inspire you to really get in touch with your dreams. This bold, distinctive book features only the number 5 on the cover. 5 signifies designing a 5-year plan detailing dreams, goals and aspirations. As you read and work through the pages of this book it will help you decide on the path you choose to take and how to organize your thoughts and how to create the plan to achieve your goals. 

What was next? 
- A pen to help you write your purpose
This poppin dry erase pen will be put to good use on my dream board. I happen to have a whiteboard that I use daily!

- a purpose key to help you unlock your gift.
It is from the giving keys and I absolutely am in love. Having a reminder to wear that it is all about my journey and what my purpose is.. is priceless!

It also included 
-flying wish papers to let your limits fly
- detailed notes on each item containing affirmations and instructions.

I truly felt inspired getting this box. I hope you check them out. Get your own box at

Make FIT and HEALTHY your new lifestyle

Are you ready to make that change? Are you ready to get REAL results REAL fast? My New You Summer Fix fitness group starts Monday, July 6th… just in time to kick into gear after holiday parties and indulgence on the 4th! These fitness groups are an amazing community of women (and sometimes men!) all working toward their health and fitness goals. My team of coaches and I will provide meal plans, shopping lists, useful nutritional knowledge and tips and motivation for staying on track in a busy life! It is REAL fitness, REAL nutrition, and REAL results.

People ask me all the time, what’s my secret, how do I stay in shape and looking (somewhat, lol) younger than my real age.…The awesome truth is, there is no secret. There’s nothing fancy to it. I just believe in a little exercise and developing healthy, sustainable eating habits. It is a lifestyle! And whatever I recommend to my friends is what I personally do because I know it works and I know it’s possible once you learn how to make those small changes. 

If you want it and you put in the effort, you will see and FEEL a change in just 21 days, three little weeks. Just 30 minutes a day of exercise, clean healthy eating 80 – 90% of the time (gotta have a cheat now and again) and one superfood shake a day. That’s all I do to stay in shape and full of energy. And that’s all my challengers do and they see incredible results: clothes fitting that haven’t fit in years, sugar cravings BUSTED, soda habits kicked, strength and energy increasing and pounds dropping. It’s a beautiful thing. What is even more exciting is the program that will help me TEACH you how to make this lifestyle change is on PROMOTION (BIG SALE!) until the end of June! You know the program with the little color coded portion containers and the 30 minute workouts? Yep, 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme is only $11 when you buy a bag of Shakeology. Um, hello? If you have been on the fence about trying this bestselling, most effective workout program, NOW is the time. It doesn’t go on sale like this more than a few times and year AND it’s officially bathing suit season, so what’s a better time than now?

If you want to join my team and I (we’ll be working it right along with you this July!) or you want more info, just comment below “I’M IN” and I’ll message you to get you started. You can also PM me, DM me or email me at

5 simple ways to jump start your health

Summer is here! 

Well, it is just around the corner any way... are you ready?

So many people talk all year long about how this year will be different. They will get their health in order, make the right choices, do the work, get healthy. Only to find themselves at the end of May a few pounds heavier than when they started. Why? It is an uphill battle. More than ever people are eating high processed, non-food items, because of the "low calorie" lie. The fact is our bodies do not know what to do with these ingredients and it leads to cravings, obesity, bloating, headaches, fibromyalgia, gluten-intolerance, depression and anxiety.... which leads to more eating and less body movement. We are losing the battle folks.

I believe if everyone has accountability, support, motivation, meal plans, and a whole lot of love, they can do it. I am seeing success all over the U.S. right now and I have a fire in my belly to PUSH hard to end this trend.

I wanted to share with you 5 simple steps to start you on your road to health:

1. Clean out the gunk I like to use the analogy of a car engine here. If you have been filling your engine with cheap crap, build up starts to happen. The engine eventually fails and well... you gotta start over. Our bodies are the same. You can try to do a messy cleanse on your own, or we have a 3 day one that I am on right now that is amazing. It clears you out and gets you ready for your fresh start. You get to eat on it too. It is $59 and I can't tell you how many times I have done it. Safe for once a month if needed.
Day one dinner on the 3 day refresh.

Avoid junk foods which make us lethargic and dull. It always always always starts with what you eat. It is 80% diet and 20% exercise that is going to get you to your goals. You are what you eat so don't be cheap, fake, or easy. 
3. Consume a healthy diet, such as vegetables, fruits, fish, nuts, good proteins. Don't forget to intake 8 glasses of liquid. Take your daily dose of dense nutrition (shakeology) Avoid refined and junk foods. The main source for poor health and sickness is improper healthy eating habits. Many people suffer from sickness like diabetes, cancer, obesity and etc because of this. Changing your bad diet will contribute a great difference within a short period and can improve your health benefits drastically.  If you need nutritional guidance I have a great program called the 21 day fix that breaks down this process into easy containers. Just email me!

4. Exercise 30 minutes 5 days a week. Exercising in the morning can leave you with a refreshed feeling throughout the day and can put you in a good mental health and it will be easier for you to think positively and generate a better appetite. I know you "hate exercise" i hear it daily. 30 minutes a day can change your life. I have so many programs that are FUN from hip hop dance style to hardcore weightlifing... all can be done in the comfort of your home. Just ask!

5. Realize that positive thinking is very essential in order to be healthy. Clear out your mind of all negative thoughts and fill it with positive ones. These positive thoughts can be extremely energizing and always lead to good things in life. You can get involved in practices such as meditation and yoga to get rid of the negativity and force yourself with positive thoughts. Watch "The Secret" and learn how YOU are creating your own future. 

Don't forget we have so many programs to help you along the way. We have love, support, accountability and motivation. Join #TeamNourish and feel the love. :) If you are ready to give it a go, I have a FREE 10 day sugar free group starting on Monday. Just drop me an email and I will add you!
Email me to get in, it's free! 
With only 2 days left in May, Here are last minute deals to grab before they end! If you are interested in saving TONS of money (Like getting your PiYo for just $10) then email me please! BEFORE May 1st so I can get you in on the sale!
My book: Nourish- The beginner's guide to eating healthy and staying fit is out! You can get it from Barnes and Noble or Amazon, but if you want it signed, please go and purchase yours. Purchasing it there also allows proceeds to go to my cause to end the trend of obesity. 
I want to take a moment to thank you all who have supported me on my healing these past 16 months. I am cancer free and happier than ever. I cannot thank you enough for all the love, support, thank you notes and kind words you have given to me. Much love and gratitude for you!

For those of you that have not read how shakeology has changed my life. Please read about it here My Shakeo Story
