Country Heat Recap Day 8

Today is our “golden 8” anniversary. 08-08-08! Every year I pull out my wedding dress and try it on to see if it fits (after 2 big babies: 10lbs6oz and 8lbs1oz!)


Winner winner chicken dinner!! It feels amazing to slide it on and have it fit perfectly (it was tight on our wedding day 8 years ago!)

Country Heat Recap Day 7

Today was rest and cook day. Yesterday was exhausting and I’m glad today is a rest day. We walked around in Center City to get food for the week and enjoy the weather (and catch Pokemon!)

The girls got some chinese bakery treats

I love cooking big batches on Sunday so I can warm and eat all week. Busted out the Instant Pot and got it done. 

Guy Fieri’s Salsa Verde Taco Chicken
Nom Nom Paleo’s Thai Beef Curry
Organic Brown Basmati Rice

Down 5! Lbs after 7 days!

Country Heat Recap Day 5

Grind so you can unwind. Most of this week has been filled with trying to get as many people into our Super Saturday as possible. We sold out the event in May, BEFORE they announced that the CEO and top trainer were coming to Philly. It’s been hectic but I’m still getting in my containers and “workouts.”  

Down 3.8lbs total so far in 5 days. 

Country Heat Day 4 Recap

Different audience today and this one did it with me. I love that the girls love to work out too. 

She is my mini-me

This “diet” is seriously so much food. This is 💚❤️, 2 containers out of the 13 I eat a day. Homegrown tomatoes and a quick rotisserie chicken for a quick dinner  before soccer. 


I’m waiting for the monthly bloat to hit but for now I lost some more. Down 3.8 since Monday. Yay!!!!

Country Heat Day 3 recap

Yay for a new dance on day 3. I was about halfway done when my dad (who is visiting) came downstairs and tapped his foot as I finished up. 

The video is on my coach FB page!

I’m super happy with how I feel on containers. The tutorials for the dances are super helpful and I’m really having fun for the half hour. 

We stopped at Costco before soccer to get some essentials. 


How many container foods can you see here and what colors?

Country Heat Day 2 recap

Day 2 was County Swing again and halfway through L came to join me. 


I have to say that I’ve been using the containers off and on for year and always wonder why I go off them. Down 3.4lbs total in 2 days, with 1″ off my waist. 

And it’s so much food! Even in Bracket A! (This is only part of it)


I didn’t expect the bracelets to be so fun and easy. I should’ve gotten some a long time ago. 

Country Heat Day 1 recap


Before weight and measurements ✔️

Before photos ✔️

Schedule added to website workout tracker ✔️

Bracelets for containers ✔️

All the prep was done and it was time to dance! More than a few of us want to add to the program (I need more weights, I want the deluxe workouts, I’m going to double up, etc.) I decided and committed to do this round start to finish as written. I am focused on burning off fat and leaning out and super excited this is high intensity and low impact.


Not a bad burn! I’ll take it. And it was fun. And I am sweaty! 

Woke up today to write my recap. Down 1.8lbs overnight from 1 day of containers. WIN!
