Happy fall, y’all!
Whenever I am feeling MEH or not excited about my day, there is one personal development powerhouse I can turn to - Mel Robbins! For me, I always thought my lack of success was because of a lack of motivation. But listening to Mel, and improving my routine + habits each day from this incredible community, helped me realize that motivation is not “the thing”.
Get fired up with Mel and listen to this quick clip of her explaining why motivation is not going to be enough to get us to our goals!
What’s one takeaway you have from her speech? I’d love to chat more about what inspires you when motivation just isn’t cutting it!
Time to shake up a cake flavor favorite - Red Velvet! Yum!
Deep chocolatey flavor, with a gorgeous red color, we love a piece of Red Velvet cake! In smaller form, a red velvet cake pop with a cream cheese frosting - yes, please! We will always support a good treat (no “NO FOOD” here), but we would love to give you a Red Velvet superfood recipe to fix your cravings when a daily piece of red velvet cake just doesn’t meet your #GOALS.
This decadent Red Velvet Smoothie featuring our creamy, chocolate superfood mix gets its classic crimson hue from a surprising ingredient. It’s gorgeous + delicious! Would you give this a try?
Red Velvet Chocolate Shakeology
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 cup ice
1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology
1 medium cooked beet, peeled, cooled, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp. mascarpone cheese
½ tsp. balsamic vinegar
Place almond milk, ice, Shakeology, beet, cheese, and vinegar in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.

How is BODi different from Beachbody On Demand?
What is the BODcast?
The BODcast lets up to 75 people in each live class share their own video feed in real time. You’ll be able to see yourself and others on-screen, and you may even get shout-outs, corrections, and cues from your trainer. It’s a fun way to tap into the energy of group exercise and immerse yourself in the experience. Because each BODcast is limited to 75 people, you’ll need to register for a spot in advance. Don’t want to be featured on-screen? You can still join a live workout if you are not in the BODcast. There is only a limit to the number of people who can participate in the BODcast, but no limit to the number of people who can attend a live class off-screen.

Walking is an incredible first step to a healthier lifestyle. It is an easy and effective way to increase daily activity levels and add additional calorie burn to your weight-loss journey! Outside of scale goals, if you are walking and moving, you’re not sitting or standing - which is a win!
A study found that walking regularly can help you hit two important goals — shed fat and keep it off in the long term. With a proper diet, walking can help you shed pounds faster than dieting alone, increase your mobility, and prime your body daily to avoid any injury from a sedentary lifestyle.
The study suggested shooting for at least 10,000 steps a day, which is equivalent to about 2 hours of walking. Now, walking for 2 hours a day is not something we are suggesting, but how can you chunk that 2 hours time into your day?
- Can you park farther away at the grocery store for an extra 5-minute walk in and out?
- Are there steps you can take instead of using an elevator?
- Is your lunch on-the-go, so you can eat while you walk?
The minutes and steps will add up! Remember, you may not hit your goal on Day 1, but the first step is the most important. Did you get in your steps today?!
