"I have more energy and physical confidence, which makes me a better mom. Each workout is a short 30 minutes which is really easy to squeeze in, it's progressive so you feel successful with each phase, and it is really gratifying to spend a little time working on me!"
This post on Face Book made my day! This is why I love what I do! Check what one of my New Mommy Makeover Coaching clients has to say…..
“I was never really a health conscious person. I didn’t exactly hit the gene pool lottery and, unfortunately, a few yars ago, I had some bloodwork done that indicated a need for change. A few years and a few kids later, I realized that I couldn’t do it by myself and I finally broke down and asked for help. I’ve been working with Colleen Carpenter Riddle as my long distance, but still amazingly there coach for 12 weeks. Even after being sidelined for nearly a month when we were all sick, I’m STILL down 12 inches from head to toe! A full size and a half! More importantly, I feel fantasticly balanced. I feel like I SHOULD feel. I feel healthy. Colleen helped me start with small changes, tweaks, and shifts. Now, I’ve radically changed my approach to activity and nutrition, and Roy Jenkins is jumping on board! WOOHOO! The best part? Yesterday during playtime, I was doing forward rolls and cartwheels right there with the kiddos. I can keep up with them and they see me active. We roughhouse, crazy dance, and hike together. We’re all shifting and they are begging for whole foods meals! If any of you are ready, Colleen is starting a new round of coaching. I know that 3 of us from the last round are signing back up! Her workout programs are designed for moms, but her coaching and approach are suited for anyone, male or female, regardless of age or activity level. Check her out at New Mommy Makeover and come join us!”-Shannon Jenkins
As many of you know I am a huge believer in the phrase, “You can’t out train a bad diet!” No matter how much you exercise, if you don’t put nutritious food in your body, you will not meet your health and fitness goals. Eating smaller, nutritional meals coupled with exercise has always been the combination that gets the post natal weight off and keeps it off. The problem is most people don’t have the time to prepare the nutritional meals needed for long term weight management. That’s why I am so excited to share with you a brand new meal replacement shake weight management program!
These chocolate and vanilla shakes are delicious and have just the right amount of vitamins, greens and protein to replace a meal! What a great way to drop extra weight and keep it off.
Before I go into detail, please know my endorsement did not come easy. I have always been extremely skeptical of meal replacement shakes. Most of them don’t taste good, don’t fill you up, and most are filled with artificial sweeteners (a big no-no). However, so many of my clients were having difficulty eating healthy, especially with such busy lives, I knew there had to be a solution. After doing extensive research in the nutritional value of what’s needed in a meal replacement shake and being a part of this company for over 2 years, I am completely confident that we nailed it. This is the best weight management program and meal replacement available today. It’s Vegan, Gluten-Free, and made with Non-GMO ingredients! Click here to read the ingredient deck.
This is a real game-changer for people who want to lose weight and keep it off. It’s so easy to use and tastes so good; everyone will be able to stay on track and get results.
So, here’s the special offer…
I know for a fact this will help you lose weight AND keep it off! In fact, even though the company is only taking preorders, I want to offer you a chance to be the first to receive of LS VIBE! You’ll get 60 servings (30 Chocolate, 30 Vanilla) for the pre-order price of only $250. That breaks down to only $4.16 per meal (you can’t even get a greasy, fat-laden fast food meal for that!) I believe in this product so much that I’m even taking it a step further to help you… I’m offering my complete set of New Mommy Makeover DVDs (award winning post natal workouts) free for everyone that takes advantage of the pre-order before March 26, 2013. That’s right the complete set valued at $325.00 will be shipped to you after your pre-order of Vibe is processed. This is a ONE TIME offer! If you are looking to take control and get your body back, this is a healthy and nutritious way of doing it….even if you aren’t a new mom! I’ve had many success stories from people that get great result that have never had children, as well as hearing from moms whose children are all grown! The DVDs are awesome 30 minute workouts that fit perfectly with the LS Vibe program. If you have any questions please email back, or feel free to call me at 850-598-7263. Thank you for your continued support!
Yours in health,
ACE Certified Personal Trainer

Here are a few stories of people who are getting exciting results with LS VIBE during our pre-launch trial.
”I’ve been using protein shakes for years and my pantry is full of many credible brands. No more, LSVibe is my shake for life. I have faster post workout recovery time and a “leaning out” that I had never seen before. My appetite is noticeably less as the LSVIBE shake fills me up as a complete meal. My curves are coming out in all the right places. Thank you Vibe!” -Robyn Nassetta
“Just completed my first VIBE week !! I no longer have cravings for bread or sweets. This is the easiest plan ever!!”- Ann Herlihy
“I was super skeptical and since being on Vibe the last two weeks I have completely changed my mind. I feel full and energetic after my Vibe shake and I crave it. It has quickly become my favorite meal of the day!”- Karen Hummel
I love this picture! Great reminder that you never know who is watching you (with your positive habits or your negative ones!) Your children learn from your habits and your behaviors. Keep up the good work hot mammas!!
We are two weeks into the new year….how’s everyone doing on their nutrition and exercise? The holidays tend to be a time where it’s easy to overindulge! Here’s a short list to turn to as you try and kick your sugar addiction! One of my coaching clients has this picture on her phone as a reminder when her cravings kick up! I will elaborate a bit on each of the eight tips.
1.High Fiber foods: Aim for 25-30 grams per day. Examples: All types of beans, lentils, oatmeal, pears, broccoli, apples just to name a few (email me for a full list Colleen@NewMommyMakeover.com)
2.Drink Green or Black Tea: easy to do at this time of year! Nice warm cup of tea with your afternoon snack: YUM!
3.Exercise regularly: I don’t need to elaborate here:-), remember Something is always better than Nothing!
4.Take a vitamin supplement: Out of all the supplements I have researched, I have endorsed Life Shotz. Hands down best on the market!
5.Get eight hours of sleep: the importance of sleep is often overlooked! Lack of sleep can lead to poor food choices, increased belly fat and more.
6.Drink more water! So important! Many people mistake thirst for hunger and end up eating thinking they are hungry, when they are just dehydrated.
7.Do a Detox: I don’t have a lot to say on this topic, other than do it slow and steady; nothing extravagant.
8.Eat fruit to satisfy sweet craving: The natural sugars in fruit will give you the satisfaction PLUS provide extra fiber!

My colleague and friend, Casey Marshek, is a trainer out in Colorado. We have a lot of the same beliefs, and she is passionate about helping her clients too! We often share training ideas, healthy food options, and ideas to inspire our clients. I asked her to be a guest on this week’s newsletter. I think you will find these tips extremely helpful to help keep you fit during these next few weeks! If you
know anyone in the Denver area, I highly recommend Casey as a great personal trainer! Here’s a link to her site: http://caseymarshekpersonaltraining.blogspot.com/
Here are her tips:
Over the years I have heard friends, family, and clients say that after the holiday’s they feel sluggish, bloated, and exhausted. This is no surprise. During the holidays we travel, go without sleep, and over indulge on high fat, high calorie foods.
I am hoping my friends and loved one’s can avoid this unpleasant feeling post-holiday season by following some nutrition and fitness tips that make surviving the holidays EASY.
1) Keep a food journal. It will help you make sure you are eating a balanced diet, and keep you from over indulging on sweets.
2) Don’t skip breakfast. It will energize you for your day and keep you from over indulging at lunch.
3) If you live with people who like to indulge. Purchase or bake things that they like and you do not.
4) Portion control isn’t about measuring or calorie counting. It’s about skipping pasta if you indulged in the bread basket.
5) If you are not hungry enough for a fruit or vegetable. You are not hungry.
6) Cut sodium and carbonation. Carbonation can bloat your stomach, making it appear distended for hours. Sodium causes you to retain fluids.
7) When at a holiday party eat off a cocktail napkin instead of a dinner plate to control your portion sizes.
Cut out unnecessary beverages that contain calories. (lemonade, latte, juice, wine)
9) Pack snacks in single serving containers to hold yourself to one serving.
10) Keep fruits and vegetables at work for snacks, so that you avoid the vending machine.
1) Remember that eating is not a hobby
2) Rest no more than 30 seconds between exercises and it will dramatically increase your calorie burn.
3) When craving something distract yourself for 20 minutes: ride a bike, do some yoga, go for a walk, call a friend. If you still want it, then indulge.
4) When doing a cardio workout add interval bursts to increase your calorie burn and keep your brain engaged.
5) Start your day with fitness and use the endorphin release instead of that high calorie latte for engergy.
6) Holiday season is busy. If you don’t have 30-40 minutes in a row for a workout then sneak 10 minute in the morning, 10 minutes after work, walk to the store, and take the stairs. Every little bit adds up!
———————————————————— Life Shotz Raving Fans Do you know any tennis lovers? Check out our newest Life Shotz Team member! He has an impressive background and Life Shotz has made such a huge impact on his game, he wants to share it with others! Tony Dawson: Tennis Professional
I am a former tennis touring professional and have been competing again in the past few years both Nationally and Internationally in Senior Tennis events. Over these years I have tried several products that would give me the stamina to last long matches and competitive matches over several days. 30 days ago, I used Life Shotz as a trial and I am amazed at the results that occurred in a very short period of time. Recently, I played two long matches in the same day and after playing 5 hours in the Texas heat, found I had the same amount of energy at the end of the event as I had in the beginning.
Additionally I would normally be extremely stiff and sore for a number of days and I am happy to report that the soreness was gone after two days … I am now convinced that Life Shotz was the difference and will continue to use it as I head into a busy tennis season. Thank you for exposing me to this new miracle and I look forward to continued improvements in my overall fitness!

I’m thankful for all of my wonderful clients, and supportive readers! Just wanted to share seven tips with you to keep you healthy and fit through Thanksgiving!
1. Dressing: Use a little less bread and add more onions, garlic, celery, and vegetables. Add fruits such as cranberries or apples. Moisten or flavor with low fat low sodium chicken or vegetable broth and applesauce.
2. Turkey: Enjoy delicious, roasted turkey breast without the skin and save 11 grams of saturated fat per 3 oz serving.
3. Mashed Potato Substitute: Use heavily steamed cauliflower, garlic or garlic powder, and low fat sour cream and beat(John loves these!)
4. Quick Holiday Nog: Four bananas, 1-1/2 cups skim milk or soymilk, 1-1/2 cups plain nonfat yogurt, 1/4 teaspoon rum extract, and ground nutmeg. Blend all ingredients except nutmeg. Puree until smooth. Top with nutmeg.
5. Desserts: Make a crust-less pumpkin pie. Substitute two egg whites for each whole egg in baked recipes. Replace heavy cream with evaporated skim milk in cheesecakes and cream pies. Top cakes with fresh fruit, fruit sauce, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar instead of fattening frosting.
6. Appetizers: Don’t go overboard with pre-dinner treats. It’s easy to consume 1500 calories before you even sit down to dinner. Avoid the heavy cheese dip, and fried options. Focus on fresh items such as veggies and fruit.
7. Exercise: Get a quick workout in before the day begins. Remember, something is better than nothing! Intervals are the best way to get your body into a “Fat Burning Furnace” all day!
Enjoy your special day! Above all, remember what this holiday is really about: Being grateful for the special people in your live. Thank you for being a part of my life!

“Who loses weight over the holidays? I just put on a pair of jeans that were too tight at Thanksgiving, and they were loose! Since I began to take Life Shotz two months ago, I notice that I’m not hungry between meals, so I’m not munching or snacking anymore. I have more energy at the end of my day, so I’m getting more done when I get home, and I’m getting to the gym more often and not spending as much time on the couch. I’m also in a better mood when I get home from a long, stressful day at work. I feel better than I have in years!”-Robin Glaus

Well, it’s that time of year again, Halloween. Little ghosts and goblins are running all about. Are you dressing up this year? Have your kids dragged you all around town to find the perfect costume? I found this cartoon, and it made me laugh, so I wanted to share it with all of you. I know it would be unrealistic for me to expect you and your kids to not eat candy this Halloween. I do suggest that you keep it under control and monitor what your kids consume. I also wanted to provide some creative alternatives. The candy aisles in the store are woefully lacking in healthier alternatives. Small bags of pretzels, popcorn, or animal crackers are some healthier options. It’s hard to find safely-packaged, treat-sized portions of fruits, veggies, or even nuts. So instead, how about some fun items that not only lack tons of sugar, but also last a lot longer than candy. Here are some ideas: silly bands, temporary tattoos, spider rings, and glow sticks.
Overall, try to make Halloween about having fun and getting dressed up. Focus on carving the pumpkin, watching a fun Halloween inspired movie, and enjoying time with family and friends. Also don’t just throw away your pumpkin seeds. They are filled with fiber essential fatty acids, and antioxidants! Just mix them with a little oil and some seasoning and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes!
Latest Story from happy Life Shotz customer!
Life Shotz has made such a difference in my life. I feel so much better and I have lost over 10 pounds in less than a month. I was told by my boss the other day that i have such nice skin. I clean house’s for a living and I don’t die out half way throw the day any more. I LOVE THIS STUFF!
It’s hard enough to keep up with eating enough fruits and veggies each day, but keeping up with exactly which vitamins and minerals come from each and how many servings you need…wow…that’s enough to drive anyone crazy.
Here’s a fun way to make sure you’re covering your nutritional bases.
Pick foods from each color of the rainbow and make sure to eat a few of each during the week. Here are just a few examples:
The list could go on and on.
Something else I do every single day to ensure I’m covering all of my nutritional bases is I drink one packet of Life Shotz everyday. This keeps my energy levels high along with increasing my immune system…especially with flu season here!
The last time I wrote to you we were headed to San Jose for our Life Shotz conference. I am excited to tell you that John and I earned $2500, and then won $10,000!! This company blows me away!! Here’s a picture of us winning! Let me know if you want to join us for the ride of your life!!
