Shift Your Belief and Move Mountains
Hey, my mom friends out there! Whether you are going through the terrible twos, the teenage years, or the journey I find myself in currently – becoming an Empty Nester – we all know the struggle of sometimes just getting through the day, not to mention trying to rev up a metabolism that’s stuck in a perpetual holding pattern, and a jeans size that won’t seem to budge!
Maybe you’re to the point where you’ve just come to accept it.
Does the script in your head go a little like this?
- “No matter what diet I try, I usually gain all my weight back”
- “I just crave sweets and fatty foods, but I only eat them when I really need a treat”
- “I’m so busy; I don’t have time to exercise”
- “I have a slow metabolism, especially after I turned 40”
- “I wish I had _____’s motivation; I’ll could never exercise that regularly”
- “I’ll start taking time for myself after ____ (fill in favorite excuse)”
It’s time to shift that script!
Just as our conversations with our kiddos affect their ability to reach success in their lives, your conversations with yourself are just as vital for either limiting or liberating your ability to overcome obstacles and thrive.
If you’ve been “stuck” in a fitness rut for some time now, and are wondering how to get yourself moving again in the right direction, might I suggest it’s time for a shift?
Introducing the Shift Shop
Beachbody’s newest workout, the Shift Shop, is getting set to launch in July, and it promises to be yet another tool in our toolbox that we can use to help us achieve great things! Their newest trainer, Chris Downing, is an NASM certified trainer and an amazing positive motivator (think of a cross between Shaun T and Chalene Johnson). He has created a 3-week program to help us ramp up our fitness in an easy-to-start, easy-to-succeed progression of “shifts” made in three phases.
I’ve talked before about the importance of balancing your 3 Pillars of Wellness, and the Shift Shop does just that. Over the course of the program, you’ll begin to shift your Mindset, Metabolism, and Movement, to improve your overall strength, agility, and endurance – all things needed not just for a 3-week fitness challenge, but for long-term quality of life.
The Shift Shop, in a nutshell:
- 3-week program
- Move from basic 25 min workouts in week 1, increasing to 45 min workouts in week 3
- Every workout includes a modifier to follow
- New workouts each week
- Work on your agility, strength, and core
- 6 days of exercise with 1 rest day off
- A nutrition guide is included, along with suggested foods lists
Here is a look at the breakdown, so you can see the progression through each phase of your 3 weeks.
- Movement/Mindset: Shorter, 25-min workouts to help you stay focused
- Metabolism: Focus on a healthy balance of complex carbs, lean protein, and healthy fat
- Movement/Mindset: As your body adapts to the moves and you get stronger, the workouts change/increase to 35 minutes
- Metabolism: Begin cutting back on the starchy carbs, while increasing proteins and veggies
- Movement/Mindset: Higher-intensity workouts, increased to 45 min for the final push through your last seven days
- Metabolism: Eating very “clean” for optimal fat loss
Because the Shift Shop is a 3-week program, just like 21 Day Fix (or any other Beachbody workout), you can do multiple rounds if you wish. I would recommend if you do choose to repeat, that after 90 days or so, you switch it up and do a different workout – you know, to keep the body adapting. :)
To keep your nutrition on track, a nutrition guide is included to help you plan the perfect balance of the right foods at the right time. You’ll learn how to reduce starchy carbs while ramping up proteins and veggies week by week—so you can stay focused and get your best results.
When the program releases, the base kit will cost $59.95, and you’ll receive:
- All Shift Shop Workouts (8 different workouts for strength, agility, and core)
- Color Coded Agility Markers
- The Nutrition Guide
- A Jumpstart Guide
- 3-Week Rapid Rebuild Calendar
- 24/7 Online Support from your Coach (me!)
- 30-Day Money Back Guarantee
If you are already a member of Beachbody on Demand, you won’t pay any extra. The Shift Shop will automatically be accessible on July 12, 2017 for all current BOD members at no additional charge.

Making Your Shift
The negative chatter in your head can morph into limiting beliefs that hold you back from great things!
If you are ready to get out of your “holding pattern”, begin by actively reminding yourself that you are worthy of more, and shifting your mindset so you get up each day determined to move forward.
The Shift Shop can help you make that shift to your body and mind, and equip you to take the small steps each day to gain momentum for your optimal health and fitness.
Shift your perspective and watch as you achieve the impossible.
It might not come automatically at first, but eventually, the small shifts you make become lifestyle changes. Follow the Shop Rules and you’ll be moving mountains in no time!
If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you. ~Matthew 17:20
