21 Day Fix/ Core De Force Client Results

21 Day Fix/ Core De Force Client Recognition Time!!  I am so proud of this girl that I just had to share with everyone. This is Jess and she started out in my Bridal Boot camp group back in mid August. As off today she is down 40 pounds!!!! She did this by using 21 Day Fix and Core De Force Beachbody programs combined with Shakeology.

Jess is a prime of example of how Beachbody programs can truly work if you agree to commit and put in the work. That means following not only the exercise program but also the nutrition side of the programs. If you use both of them together you will get to that goal you are after!

It is not only about weight loss it is also about health and happiness. Jess and I have talked about mindset a lot and about being positive. This girl has done a complete 180 not just on weight but also on her attitude. She just radiates confidence and happiness and it shows. She will be walking down the aisle, feeling and looking the best she has ever felt. Who doesn’t want to feel that way?

I am so proud of you Jess and all of the hard work that you have put in. Not only the work but also how inspiring you are to the other ladies in our group as well. Thank you for allowing me to share your success!!

If you would like to try either one of these programs in either my bridal boot camp facebook group or my monthly accountability group, I would love to chat with you about it. Let’s find out which program would suit you best and take it from there. You can email me at joannebjung@gmail.com or message me on my Clean Eating Mommy Facebook Page.

Being a Stay at Home Mom is the hardest job

Stay at home mom

Don’t run. Don’t touch that. Don’t hit the dog. Don’t run. Don’t run. Don’t run. Oh did I say don’t run……

To say this week in the new house has been hard so far would be an understatement. Toddler life is never easy but toddler life in a new home is hard. We have always been in an apartment and she has no experience with stairs or fireplaces. I had probably a million mini heart attacks this week and the kiddo has about a million tiny bruises.

She has gone face first out of her crib, face first into the iron spokes on the banister, fallen off of lots of furniture but thankfully has not tripped into the fireplace yet.

Oh man this Mom job is the hardest job I have ever had. Yesterday for nap time, we got into my room (because she is still scared of hers) and was refusing to nap. I closed the door laid on the bed and waited for her to decide to join me. She finally climbed up and told me she did not want to nap. Cried herself to sleep and I laid there with her for 4 + hours. Those 4 hours were the most restful I had all week hahahaha.

I took a nap, looked at my phone but then stared over at her little angelic face and continued to take it all in for a while. As moms we need to remember that these moments will not last forever. The hard times and the beautiful moments are just small moments in time. Enjoy them even when it is hard

I am also thankful that we decided to send her to pre-school and we are switching her to 3 days a week instead of 2. She is learning so much and the things she tells me when I pick her up are priceless.Plus she makes me crafts  It is worth every penny for my sanity and for her to learn and interact with other kids. I will enjoy the next few hours before pick up time

This is my Why.


Starting to feel better and went for a long walk today. Had time to do a little reflection. After being sick last week, I had lost 4 pounds and this would make the old me jump for joy. The new me put on my jeans that I think make my booty look awesome (we all have those right??) But my booty that is normally there was covered with sagging fabric. My jeans were loose. The old me would have LOVED this.

The old me, the girl on the left in the photo, would have been terrified to have the booty the girl in photo on the right has now. New me is proud to have that booty and I have done many squats to get there. I would like to thank Kim Kardashian and my hubby (who reminds me sometimes) for letting me get it into my thick head that curves are beautiful too. Let me introduce you to and let you get to know a little about the old me.

I was completely lost and miserable. I had been in and out of some really toxic relationships with people who did not deserve my love and attention. I felt drained, sad, lonely and decided that my unhappiness was because I was not skinny enough ( skinny equaled hot to this girl) to get and keep the right guy. Yep, these are the thoughts of a woman in her 20s that was immature, confused, had low self-esteem and had no idea what she was really worth. I had grown up overweight, shed the weight but was still not happy. So I obviously needed to be thinner. Then I would be perfect and worthy of all things great, especially that true love and family I desired.

This started my spiral into disordered eating. My life started revolving around days of starving myself (diet of cigarettes, coffee and a cup of soup), followed by days of binging, purging, diet pills, laxatives and depression. Eating and not eating consumed my every thought. I stopped spending time with friends and spent a lot more time alone. My biggest joy was that I was able to fit into a size 0. Guess what??I was more miserable than I was in the size 6 that my old boyfriend convinced me meant I was a “BIG” girl. I was in a hole and fighting desperately to find the way out.

When I tell this story, I am often asked how I got out of it. It was not something that happened over night. I knew I was in trouble and I knew that if I did not get out of it soon, I might never be able to. Plus my family was starting to ask questions and I could not stand lying anymore. They were concerned and they had every right to be. I was falling apart.

So I slowly stopped the days of binging, purging and diet pills. I started going back to the gym, I started spending time with friends again and I stopped convincing myself that my weight was what was keeping me from finding happiness. I needed to constantly remind myself that my worth was not tied to my weight or pant size.

It took me years to get it all together and I was still struggling when I met my husband. We dated long distance and there were times that when I was alone struggled with not eating for stretches of time. Then we got married and I had to make the choice to either let my disordered eating effect our married life or let go of that completely and thankfully I chose the latter. Only I could make the changes necessary to make that happen.

I bet you are wondering…. how did I end up where I am now. How did I decide to not only go from one end of the spectrum to actually wanting to help people lose weight in a healthy way?

After having our daughter I feared that those anxieties and doubts about my body would return and somedays they were there but then I discovered PIYO then 21 Day Fix and the Beachbody coaching community. This was life changing for me, for the first time I was able to focus on getting my body on track in a healthy way. This was new ground for me.

Because of this community and the people in it, I am mentally, stronger and healthier than I have ever been in my life. Physically I have never felt more comfortable in my own skin. I am fully committed to being a role model for my daughter. Someone that she can look up to and someone who can teach her a positive body image.

I am also fully committed to helping my past, present and future clients do the same. Our journey’s may all be different but we can find common ground in the process.

My next online motivation, accountability and workout group starts soon and I would love to have you with me. Let me know if you are ready to chat!

Core De Force Results and Review

Core De Force Results

I did not do a week by week results post for Core De Force because I wanted to wait till the end and give my results and opinion. First of all, Core De Force is my freakin’ soul mate program. I LOVE IT!!! The focus of Core De Force is on your core, total body strength and conditioning. My results have been incredible and I love that I haven’t used any equipment at all. I am beyond impressed with my results and the overall program. I went in with the goal of losing the 10 pounds that I had gained after the miscarriage that I suffered this past fall. I did not get all the way there but almost. It was also the holidays, weight loss over the holidays?? Yes!!!

I did the entire 30 Days of Core De Force by following the supplied meal guide, drinking Shakeology daily and healthy snack options. It was the holidays so I did have a few treats here and there. I was able to stay track minus a few meals over the 30 days of Core De Force.

Core De Force Results

I love the calorie burn I get from Core De Force!

This upcoming Monday January 9th, I will starting over with Day 1 using the Deluxe Core De Force version. This version adds in some new workouts like MMA Kick Butt, Agility Strength and Agility Power. I can not wait to try them and these ones also utilize the Agility ladder that comes in the deluxe pack! Another awesome part is that Beachbody on Demand has released 2 new workouts MMA Speed 2.0 and MMA Shred 2.0. I will swap these out instead of the regular version and I am sure my results will get even better!! I love that I can create a new schedule for my second round. Nothing worse than getting bored with your routine.

Since the holidays are now over, it is time for me to forget about temptations and get back on track. This Friday I will be kick starting my after holidays group by doing the 3 Day Refresh with a half-dozen other ladies from my group. The 3 Day Refresh is a cleanse that is low-calorie and still keeps you pretty satisfied. I will update you with my results from that! I feel pretty gross after the holidays and I have been looking forward to resetting my system.

Getting out of my routine does not make my body happy! I enjoyed the holidays but it is time to get things going properly and get back to my routine. We have no events planned or trips for the next upcoming month. That means I have an opportunity to really tackle Core De Force 100% for the next 4 weeks. I enjoyed that holidays and I always make room for balance in my life. If you do not have balance you will not stick with it!!

I am so excited to share my results with you and I have been making some crazy progress in  my core and on the scale. I have a 2.5 year old and she was a c-section baby, my core needs some work! With that being said my core will never be perfect but I am trying to get it as good as it can be. I am so proud of my progress with Core De Force!

Sugar Free Oatmeal Pies

Did you know that the average American breakfast can have anywhere from 10-55grams of sugar or artificial sweeteners in it?

Think about what you normally have for breakfast:

  • cereal and milk
  •  muffin
  • pop tarts
  •  donuts
  • granola bar
  • coffee shop pastries
  • caramel latte

Here’s the deal. When we start our day off with that much sugar, we are setting ourselves up for a crash later! Literally, we eat a breakfast that contains lots of carbs and sugars, which gives us a kick-start of energy, but that doesn’t last long. There’s little to no nutrients in some of the items listed above, which means there’s nothing there to fuel our body long-term. Instead, we are running off of the sugar, until we burn that off, and hit a crash which is where our body says…”Hey, I need more sugar so I can keep going throughout the day!’

And that’s how we get into the addictive sugar cycle.

It’s not totally our fault though. The food industry has created these foods. Marketing them as great ways to start your morning. And don’t think for one second they don’t know what they are doing. They are educated and aware of the fact that sugar is highly addictive. That’s why it’s in so many items. They know that you will come back for more because your body will want it!


We choose foods that contain good sources of protein and healthy fats. These items give our body fuel to slowly burn off, plus they create that feeling of satiety, which means we are staying full longer.  Some of my favorite things to have for breakfast are a full of nutrition protein shake, or an egg scramble with lots of veggies added in. Let’s admit it though, many times we are barely getting out the door on time, and that’s without feeding ourselves or the kiddos breakfast. That’s part of the problem isn’t it? Those items listed above are all quick and easy! Grab-n- go is ideal for our busy lifestyle, especially when it comes to morning time.

That’s why I’ve added this amazing Oatmeal Pie Recipe to my Simply Sugar Free Cookbook that is on sale for pre-order right now. Full of 30+ recipes that are Sugar Free and delicious! My goal is to provide people with recipes that will make the idea of living a sustainable sugar-free lifestyle a reality!

21 Day Fix Results: Week 2

21 Day Fix Results Week 2

21 Day Fix Results Week 2

I am back and so excited to share with you my 21 Day Fix results from week 2. Being the second week I was back in the groove of following the program and using the portion control system. I can tell you I love using the containers. It is not for everyone but it is definitely for me! It really helps me to take a step back and look at my portion sizes.

I have to mention this again because it is so important, if you use all the containers you will never be hungry. I was always satisfied with the amount of food for the day. I used to never be a breakfast eater and my breakfast of Shakeology is my favorite meal of the day some days! I mean if you can have chocolate for breakfast you are not going to crave sweets the rest of the day!

What has my day been looking like?

Breakfast: Shake and fruit
Snack: Plain Yogurt or Hard Boiled Egg
Lunch: Leftovers or Salad with Chicken
Snack: Fruit/Nuts or Hummus/Veggies
Dinner: Salmon (any protein), Asparagus (any veggies) and Sweet Potato/Quinoa or Brown Rice
Drink: Water, Water and more Water 🙂

Since it is Week 2 the workouts are not as hard as they were last week, definitely still very challenging though. I am also not as sore as last week, leg day had my quads still burning though! For those of you that are curious about the workouts, there is variety and you do not get bored. For the week you have Cardio, Upper Body, Lower Body, Pilates, Cardio, Mix of Cardio/Weights and then Yoga.

The third week was much more challenging since it also involved a move for us. Not a regular move but a move from New York to Dallas. SO there was some traveling, eating out etc. I will share more about this in my next post with my third and final results from the 21 Day Fix!
