Holiday Survival Tips!!!

My number one tip for HOLIDAY Survival….I always think about how my choices will affect my ultimate goal.

Here are my tips for surviving the holiday!

#1 Don’t skip your workout!
#2 Get in your 5-6 small meals each day
#3 Drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water to stay hydrated.
#4 Measure your food and eat in moderation
#5 OWN IT— If you choose to have a LARGE cheat meal, don’t expect to lose weight! Expect to break even and expect to have a rough FRIDAY workout. But like I said, if you choose it, own it and then work hard to get back on track!

B0003061Some more things I’ll focus on….

*I will be pass up on the things that I don’t really need. For example, I’d rather splurge on a homemade chocolate chip cookie than a dinner roll. I like apple cider but I would rather save the sugar for wine. It’s about picking and choosing what you really really want to indulge in and then passing on the less important things.

*Finish your last meal 3 hours before bed. Give your food time to digest.

*Stick to 1-2 drinks only and be sure to drink 1 full glass of water in between.

In the end I want you to enjoy your holiday but just be mindful of your choices and how they will make you feel afterwards. If you are going to own it and you are not going to feel guilty for your choices then go for it.

But if you are going to REGRET going overboard then give yourself a gut check, get an accountability partner to call you out when you reach for a bad choice and stay focused on having a healthy holiday!!!!

Here’s a video I did with some more info too :) https://www.facebook.com/daniellegracep/videos/935127019921104/

Your Holiday Survival Guide is Here!


The months of November and December become SURVIVAL MODE when it comes to nutrition and fitness.  This is the time of year when most people make all kinds of excuses. Whether it’s no time to workout, no money to eat healthy, or a lack of motivation to stay the course.  But here’s the thing, I KNOW for a fact that if you have a strong desire and motivation to DO ANYTHING then you will find a way.  If you are not highly motivated then you will FIND EXCUSES instead! It may not be EASY but it is certainly POSSIBLE.

So let’s do it together and make it manageable. You can have your CAKE and EAT it too!!!

Our holiday survival group starts November 14th! I have a plan to help you lose it and MOVE it this holiday season!! You CAN still indulge and eat desserts and holiday food because it’s all about BALANCE.

I’m going to share tools with you to keep you on track. We’ll take each day with moderation in mind, and have the energy AND motivation to stay focused on the end result. WE WILL come out of this holiday season STRONGER, HEALTHIER, and FITTER.

I will be giving away some AMAZING prizes to those who join us!


Imagine how much more energy you would have to get in your holiday shopping, wrap presents, to visit with friends, to get in those extra work hours, and do everything on your holiday wish list if you ate healthier and exercised 30 minutes each day?

Did you know that just the simple act of fueling your body with really great nutrient dense food can ALONE boost your energy level and metabolism?

I am planning a healthy Thanksgiving dinner, some fun get togethers with friends but I plan on staying accountable to my workouts and keeping my eating on track 90% of the time.  I know that when our treats happen they are earned and in moderation!  It’s all about a mindset shift of taking it one day at a time and not getting overwhelmed by the big picture!

Here is what you can expect from this group:

1. A health and fitness program to fit your needs in 30 minutes or less each day.
2. Sample meal plans and recipes to help you stay accountable, to help you with quick easy meals and snacks to fit your lifestyle.
3. Daily accountability through a closed online support group.
4. Tips on handling holiday parties, a restaurant guide, traveling tips, healthy alternatives to holiday favorites.

HERE’s the DEAL….

You pick your level….


8 At-Home Workouts on DVD’s. You’ll follow a rotating schedule of different workouts to follow each day. You’ll need light to medium dumbbells or resistance bands, and will follow along with the video as you go. Every workout is 30 minutes each!

The Containers. These portion controlled containers will teach you how much you need to eat for proper portions to reach your goal weight. I use the containers more as measuring cups and pour my portions onto my plate! You’ll be surprised how much food you get!

The Nutrition Plan. The nutrition plan will help you calculate your individual needs for each day to help you reach your health and fitness goals (this can be for weight loss, gain, maintenance, or toning)

Your container allowance per day is calculated based on your weight and the average of 400 calories burned per fix workout.  Then you are given a range you need to stay in! Each container is broken down in the manual with a list of foods that you can eat.

One of my favorite parts is that treats are allowed. They give you a list of treat ideas that replace a yellow container. There are also recipes, seasoning blends, dressing recipes, and a restaurant guide for eating out in your plan.

30 meals of Shakeology. Shakeology is my one “duh” meal per day. Shakeology is one meal out of the day that is a no brainer, you don’t have to think about what you’re eating, it’s super healthy, it’s chocolate, and I know we all want to eat real foods but we get to that point in our life where we get busy, we forget to pack our lunch, we hit the snooze button one too many times, and we say “oh well” I’ll just grab something at the office, or at the drive through, and you know you’re not making a good choice, and you’re probably spending more than that $4 a serving for shakeology. Shakeology takes 60 sec to make and has all the dense nutrition of several servings of salad all in 150 calorie glass. The energy it provides me is insane and so important. Trust me – you’re going to LOVE this. And just in case you don’t (but you will!) there’s a 30 day return policy so you get to try for yourself

All for $140.00 USD
