What are you waiting for?


I spent YEARS yo-yo dieting, here was my mental state….one minute……”I don’t care”…..next minute……”I’m so fat”…..”I will start Monday”…..”maybe this new diet will work.”   Until God showed me that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Relying on Him to help me with my struggle changed everything. When things are hard and I lean on Him with all my might He gives me joy in the midst.  When I lean on my own strength I am a mess….full of stress, worry, and fear.  I’ve learned that I’m God’s girl and nothing is going to stop me!


This is me today; I’ve managed to stay within 5 pounds of my transformation which was a year and a half ago.  I’ve had moments of being focused and driven.  I’ve cut out everything from my diet with Whole30 and experimented with different recipes and eating styles such as Paleo.  I’ve also had weak moments of not wanting to think about food at all and I’ve fallen off the wagon into a pit of ice cream but I haven’t given up!

I get bored easily so I’ve challenged myself (and Becca) with different workouts.  I’ve taken crossfit classes, trx, spinning, and even tried some lap swimming.  I also just went for my first bike ride of the season and I still try to go for a run here and there.  I believe fitness should be fun and when it’s not you’ve got to try something new.  I even tried resting…haha.

The best part of this journey God has put me on is that He has used me to inspire others.  Life is short and everyone should get the chance to love their body and see it’s full potential.  It took me 34 years but I know it can happen at any age, and any fitness level.  We were all created perfect, in God’s image and it is up to us to seek Him in being all He designed us to be!

I started a new journey for a few reasons #1 I want everyone to experience what they are capable of and love the body God gave them #2 I want them to inspire others #3 If it could be their job that would be amazing!!!

I own a successful smoothie franchise that I have had for 12 years.  I love my smoothie shop and hope I have it forever but I also love helping others with their fitness goals!  I could be a personal trainer? Go into nutrition? or join an amazing organization with a product I know works and give people the opportunity to make a great income, while helping others from the comfort of their own home!

That’s right


I’m sure you have heard of the company, the makers of P90X, Insanity, and Shakeology.  If you haven’t heard of them their programs are exactly what I preach – clean eating (with occasional treats), muscle and cardio combined for the most effective workout in the shortest amount of time and a smoothie to replace one of your meals!! I am running my first challenge group over the month of July.  The program is the 21Day Fix Challenge pack.  You get a simple eating plan with proper portion containers, it comes with great workouts, and a 30 day supply of Shakeology (your protein smoothie that curbs appetite, gives you energy, and all the nutrients you need for the day)! Here is what comes in the mail!

21 day fix

My husband is doing it with me and he already lost 7 pounds, so not fair!

The BEST PART of doing this program with me is that I can be your PERSONAL COACH for FREE (if you want accountability)! I want you to SUCCEED and for you to see your full POTENTIAL!!

If you want any information about the company, why I’m doing it, and how you can join me, please don’t hesitate to contact me at shannonclelli@gmail.com

So what are you waiting for?

With Love,

Keepin’ it Real

It’s hard.

It’s frustrating.

It’s a pain in the butt.

BUT……It’s worth it!!!

I must admit, for me it was easier to make healthy choices when I had 50lbs to lose.  I was determined and I knew every little thing I put in my mouth was either going to help me or hurt me.

Now I’m comfortable, I feel happy and healthy so what’s wrong with a little ice cream. a slice of pizza, or an extra bowl of cereal…..I still workout?

For some people that works, they can eat anything they want in moderation.  Unfortunately it doesn’t work for meSad smile because I gain weight VERY easily! 


This is me and my friend Shannon (both Shannon). The picture on the left was us over 20 years ago Surprised smile and the picture on the right is us after a long, wonderful day at the pool catching up and meeting the latest additions to our families!  This is a painful picture to share because I don’t remember ever looking like that.  I even was so shocked by it that I asked my mom, “did I eat a lot?”  You would think by that picture that I sat around eating all day? She said that my younger sister always ate way more than me, yet she was a skinny little thing all her lifeSad smile.  I could sink into a pint of ice cream over it or even give up and say I’m doomed to be overweight and unhappy with myself the rest of my life.


Realize that God gave me this struggle for an amazing reason!  I have to rely on Him everyday with how to feed and take care of this amazing body He built and designed or I will go right back to my former self.  He knows exactly what will help me and what will harm me and if I’m not listening I will go for what harms me every time!

Have you ever felt defeated?  That your weight struggle is impossible? 

Just remember..

“nothing is impossible with God.” Luke 1:37Red heart

Transformation Starts On The Inside!

Wow, this is an amazing message that I had to share!  I can’t believe I was able to watch this uninterrupted but it is only because God knew I needed it!

Our story is about our lives being transformed inside and out.   If you don’t know the power and the love of our amazing God it’s time to give up!  That’s right give up trying to do everything in your own strength, give your life to God and let the transformation begin!!!
