2B Mindset

“I’m going to help you win the weight-loss battle once and for all!”

It’s not a diet. It’s a mindset.
But make no mistake, the 2B Mindset can help you lose weight — happily — without feeling deprived or hungry, without exercising, without counting calories, or cutting out whole food groups.  Did you hear that?  Carbs are allowed, wine is allowed, dessert is allowed...dessert and wine are food groups, right?!?  
The 2B Mindset addresses the number one issue with weight loss and weight management — food. Exercise is critical for living a healthy, functional life, but as they say, abs are made in the kitchen — and that’s the problem Ilana designed the 2B Mindset to solve.  She has lost over 100 pounds with this program and knows what it's like to loose weight and keep it off!  
You see, I love fitness.  But nutrition?  Let me stick to my freedom please.  I've found whenever I try to stick to any sort of "rules" I first feel like I better eat and drink everything I love in the house the night before I start...BINGE on it, dessert, carbs...let me eat it all before I'm not allowed the next day...have you been there?   Then I can stick to the rules for a while, see results, and then I'm DONE and eat it all again out of anger and tell myself how ridiculous those rules are and I need to LIVE!  =)  Roller coaster ride!  Am I the only one??  
Is anyone like me and "on track" for a few weeks, see results, but can't live like that?  Or maybe you're good all week, go for it all on the weekends?  Good all day, but watch out at night?  Are you SICK AND TIRED of yo yo diets or trying the latest fad?  ME TOO!!!  My JAM is BALANCE!  I haven't always had it in my life but that's what I strive for because when I don't focus on my food and what I CANT have, I do my best!  When I try to limit, it's all I can think about and truly it doesn't make me happy so I often choose fitness over nutrition...until now!  
I feel like this program is made for me!  BALANCE...NOTHING off limits...PEACE with your food!  Can I get an amen?!  I mean... for real!  I am SO DARN EXCITED!!!!! My friends who were in the test group got AMAZING results and they've tried everything from weight watchers, keto diet, our container system, if it fits your macros, interment fasting, etc...said they feel so free because there's no planing/prepping, calorie counting, measuring/weighting food, or point counting, just taking the steering wheel with a healthy mindset and balance in life!  FREEDOM!!!!!! 
With this program, fitness is NOT required but is considered a bonus and encouraged so if you're doing Beachbody home workouts, Crossfit, Orange Theory, 9Round, running, etc. that's great and keep going girlfriend, but for those of you just getting started, leave the fitness for later boo!  Yup, that's right, you can loose weight without sweating it out and dealing with a food approved list!  
Here's a short intro video to see a little more about the program:

Remember those friends I mentioned above?  Here's a coach on my team, Leah, who was a part of the text group and did a training for us coaches...if you want to watch it until about the 19 minute mark you'll hear all about her journey! 

Want to see more about what you get?  Watch this video for details:

80 Day Obsession Banana Apple Muffins

Delicious and nutritious!!!  

I made these for the kids and I this week and despite the fact that I need to work on my “dash” of salt (because I apparently I got a little too carried away and my first batch tasted like “dinner” according to my 8 year old, haha!) they are really good!!  As you can see from my ingredients picture below, I was trying to do a batch and a half so I think that's why I overcompensated on the salt...second batch was way better (I followed the instructions below!) and a win for us all! 

If you’re on the 80 Day Obsession eating plan they count as a blue and purple which is so exciting because it feels like a yellow but you still have room for more carbs!! #winning 

Give them a try, careful with the salt, and let me know what you think! 

  1. 2 eggs
  2. 2 bananas
  3. 1 Tbsp melted butter
  4. 1.5 cups almond flour
  5. 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  6. dash sea salt (careful now!)
  7. 1/2 chopped apple

Mix wet ingredients in one bowl, dry ingredients in another and then blend together. Fold in apples and put in muffin tin. Makes about 9 muffins. Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes! ENJOY!!

Did you know??

Did you know I used to sell candles, bags, and then jewelry with 3 different well known companies over the years? I was always searching for something that would bring me passion and a purpose outside of being a mom but would still give me the freedom to stay at home with my babies, make my own schedule, and create an income for our family. So I tried these different things and always wished  it would be super successful and that I could win these amazing trips some of the other consultants were earning but it seemed impossible for a few reasons:  

1. I wanted a job that gave me MORE time with my family and in order to rock those businesses I had to have a lot of parties and do shows on the weekends which I was not willing to do  

2. I'm not a sales person so starting at 0 sales at the beginning of every month and trying to encourage people to buy something that is a WANT instead of a NEED was hard! 

3. I grew tired of each product. They weren't things you HAD to have and although they were fun at first, they lost their luster like most new "toys" do.

So there I was, a stay at home still searching for something MORE! Then I was invited to join an accountability group and I didn't realize my whole life was about to change. I didn't workout consistently at the time, I ate cookies for lunch, was tired ALL THE TIME,and could only do 2 pushups but I thought maybe this group would help me feel better?! A week went by and I was consistent with my workouts, 2 weeks, and then a whole month and I was sticking to it!  😳      People started noticing a change in my energy and happiness, my clothes started fitting me better and I was feeling more confident and motivated! No quick fix just fitness, nutrition, and support did the trick and because people were asking me and interested in joining me, sooooo I signed up as a coach!  

Super fun night celebrating in Punta Cana on one of the FREE trips I earned! 

I don't have to carry inventory, I don't have to host parties or do shows, I just live my best life and help others do the same! I literally get paid for something I'd be doing anyway and THAT blows my mind! I've now earned those FREE trips I used to dream about and have gone on a trip EVERY YEAR since becoming a coach! God answered my prayers by giving me a passion and purpose that I wake up SO EXCITED to do everyday! Now don't get me wrong, I am NOT knocking all the other sales companies that I worked for, or that my friends work for!   I LOVE those products, buy them often, and I'm truly SO PROUD of any of my friends or other women that build a business doing what they love...this is just my journey and what was right for me so please don't take it personal!  😊

So if you are like I was 3.5 years ago and you're looking for something MORE, you want to get in shape, you want to feel your best, you want to live life positively and be surrounded by uplifting people, then join me this week for a chance to ask me anything you want about the business and learn if it's for you or not!
