Making the SHIFT is a Lifestyle Change You’ll Love

Every one of us can benefit by SHIFTing to a lifestyle that supports our wellbeing, not just physically but also emotionally. That’s exactly what you’ll get with my New SHIFT Program. It’s not just about losing weight. It’s about transforming your lifestyle so you can be happier and healthier on a daily basis.

I know you’re thinking, “The holidays are coming. I don’t have time for a new program,” or “There is no way I can start a diet now.” But I’m going to let you in on a couple of secrets.

First, this isn’t a diet. Second, it’s actually the perfect time of year to prioritize yourself and give yourself the self-care you deserve. Making the SHIFT to a physically and emotionally healthier lifestyle is the best gift you can give to yourself this holiday season!

I’d like to share a few stories from my SHIFT clients so you can see how this program has helped them and how much you’ll love it, too.

It Really is Simple

Deb shares, “I’ve been hearing about the ‘SHIFT’ for years. I remember going to a session at the Bar Method about three years ago where Jen spoke and explained her upcoming SHIFT program. I have to admit – I didn’t think it was for me. I thought it would be too difficult, too time consuming, etc.

“The thoughts that ran through my head were, ‘I can’t do this. I have a newborn baby at home. I’m trying to balance three kids, breastfeeding, work, etc.” And the rituals? What was up with everyone talking about taking a bath and lighting a candle?

“Fast forward three years, and I’ve just completed my SHIFT. I’m so happy I did it! For me, it’s been about so much more than the nutrition. It’s about taking care of myself so I can in turn take care of my family and feel happy and good about it.

“Prior to my SHIFT, my diet was already fairly ‘clean.’ However, Jen’s suggestions and materials encouraged me to try different things. Who knew that I would look forward to a nice bowl of steel cut oats with yummy toppings and chia seeds? Her first video discussed curiosity and being curious in regards to nutrition. I think about that often as I’m trying new things and as I’m trying to encourage my family to try new foods.

“Prior to my SHIFT, I suffered from feeling bloated and having extra weight in my tummy area. I’m a petite person and always found my mid-section a challenging area post-childbirth. After being very strict throughout my SHIFT, I started to see the bloating go down, and I was starting to see my muscles forming in my stomach area. I realized that certain foods were causing the bloating, and now, I have decided to cut them out of my diet completely or have really tried to cut back. And I will say that one of my favorite times of day is drinking my hot water with lemon – a ritual I will hold onto!

“Jen has been very inspirational and motivating, not just about nutrition but also about everyday life.”

It Works

Deborah says, “I entered the SHIFT program nonchalantly, hoping perhaps to get some hints about healthier eating. I thought I was pretty healthy to start. I didn’t eat a lot of fat, had pretty much cut out sweets and sugar-based foods a few years ago, and I rarely drink. However, in cutting out sugar, my intake of carbs and dairy had increased. Given I have hypothyroid, am 46, and have two kids, I thought my 20-something body was a thing of the past. I was in for a big surprise.

“The night before I started the SHIFT, I went to the diner and ate a turkey burger, all of the fries, and then a brownie. The next morning, my stomach looked like I was five months pregnant. The last thing I wanted to do was start drinking a lot of water and dense shakes, but I did it. My stomach was flatter by day two and super flat by day four. I felt amazing and saw a difference in my skin! I do not like to weigh myself, rather I go off of how I’m feeling. Immediately, I felt my clothes getting looser.

“Aside from the obvious physical improvements, incredibly, I started to see a lift in my business. I’m a life coach, and prospective clients started to call me out of the blue. I completed more projects than I had in months!”

It’s Easy

Kate explains, “I am a 42-year old mom of two active boys and have a wonderful supportive husband. I work from home full-time and am also a full-time mom. I did my first SHIFT21 in the spring of 2015 and felt great. I went into the first SHIFT bloated, sluggish, and overall unhappy with the way I felt. After the SHIFT, I felt rejuvenated, lighter, and comfortable in my own skin again.

“I kept up with the plan for a good six months. In the summer of 2015, I had to have a routine mammogram, which then led to a biopsy and a diagnosis of LCIS, which makes me fall into a higher risk category for developing breast cancer. After meeting with all the different surgeons, oncologists, and talking to other people in a similar situation, I felt that given my age and being in good health overall, I would begin a 5-year course of Tamoxifen.

“At first, I had a hard time adjusting to the medication. I noticed weight gain and an overall feeling of just going through the motions with all aspects of my life. I was still taking my bar classes, but I was in a rut with them, too.

“In the spring of 2016, I began walking, and that helped my mental wellbeing. I started to shed a few pounds. I started to try a little harder at each bar class, and I was feeling good. My diet was terrible. I was just eating what my kids were eating. Then came summer. I stopped walking as much and I was going to my bar classes just to go through the motions.

“When I heard that there was a bar challenge and a new SHIFT Program, I knew that I wanted to give it a try since the last SHIFT was so great for me. I felt that if I had a Facebook Group and the support of others, it would be easier to stay on track – all of which has proven to be true for me.

“I completed the bar challenge of 20 classes, but what was the most important aspect for me is that I completed the SHIFT and gave it my all. I started the program sluggish, bloated, and uncomfortable. I had been blaming the Tamoxifen for my weight gain when all I needed was to fuel my body with good clean food. I never felt hungry, and I lost to date 12 pounds.

“I am proud of the way I look and feel. I guess I must have looked really bad because every time I walk into the studio or see someone I haven’t seen in a while, they ask, “What are you doing? You look amazing!” I have learned that I feel amazing on the inside, and I have so much more patience. I can take a deep breath and relax much easier, too.

“I am committed to staying on track and know what my body can and cannot tolerate! I love dairy and cheese, but I have learned they don’t work for me. I am more aware now than I have ever been and plan to stay that way. Water and portions are my biggest struggles, but I know if I watch both of those, the rest is easy! Thank you for making the SHIFT a lifestyle change for me.”

Don’t Wait to SHIFT

We’re well into Fall, and we always want to get back on track when September arrives. Doesn’t it always feel like a new year after Labor Day? I guess we’ll never lose the feeling that starting a new school year brought when we were younger! But as with the start of every type of New Year, we make all these promises to ourselves that we end up not keeping.

Do these broken promises sound familiar to you?

  • I promise to start eating better.
  • I promise to drink less alcohol.
  • I promise to get more sleep.
  • I promise to be more focused.
  • I promise to have more energy.
  • I promise to drink more water.
  • I promise to get out of all the CRAP (carbohydrates, refined sugars, additives, and preservatives) that keeps me weighed down. (No pun intended!)

My question to you is simple. Why wait for the weight to come off?

Here is what my a member of my first private group of clients said after they completed the NEW SHIFT Program:

“I have learned so much from Jen and the Simple Clean and Whole programs. I have participated in a number of Jen’s programs and I learn something each time. It started with a significant change in my eating habits which made a big difference in how I look and how I feel, and I’m thrilled to have brought some of that knowledge to my family. In fact, I feel better than ever —at 55.

 

“Beyond the nutritional component (which is huge!), I’ve also learned so much about myself. The emotional component has taught me so much! Thank you, Jen, for guiding me to a more Simple Clean and Whole life.”

— Martha

Now is the Perfect Time to SHIFT

Now, we’ve hit November, a time when we’re grounding down with the start of Thanksgiving and moving into the December holidays. Then we’re into 2017. Happy New Year! Here we go again with our resolutions. Could they be the same resolutions you made last year only to let go of them after Lent or the summer? Then the good old Fall and September resolutions come again. It’s a never-ending cycle!

The NEW SHIFT Program is your opportunity to make this real and start cleaning up your crappy gut inflammation from the SAD (Standardized American Diet) that we eat! Go ahead and have your delicious Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, November 24th, and come Friday, November 25th, you can start the NEW SHIFT 4-Week Program. The timing couldn’t be more perfect!

What’s Included in the NEW SHIFT 4-Week Program

Your NEW SHIFT Program includes all of the tools you need to be successful. This program was designed to be simple and easy, so there’s no need to feel overwhelmed or nervous. Everything you need is included, and you’ll have my support and the support of the NEW SHIFT community every step of the way!

When you join the NEW SHIFT Program, you’ll get:

  • Easy to follow and relatable weekly guided meal planning
  • Inspiring weekly nutritional videos from me to keep you going
  • Delicious weekly recipes that you’ll love
  • Access to the community in the private SHIFT Facebook Group for support, motivation, and help when you need it

Here’s what another client has to say about the materials and support offered in the SHIFT Program:

“I was reluctant to SHIFT a few years ago. One of the main reasons was that I just didn’t think that I would be successful at it. However, after giving it a shot, I realized that Jen makes it easy. Her weekly videos were so motivating and inspirational. The materials are amazing. The layout of the materials make the SHIFT weeks extremely manageable and very easy to follow. I loved getting the weekly manual, and I looked forward to going shopping and trying out new things that were on the weekly shopping list. Currently, I have the materials printed out and in a binder in my kitchen and refer to them daily.

“I highly recommend this program. I think it really suits all. I realized that there is so much more to living a healthy lifestyle outside of nutrition. Thank you, Jen, for your inspiration and honestly throughout this experience!”

— Deb

Get Answers to Your Questions in the NEW SHIFT Program

The NEW SHIFT Program was designed for people just like you who want to bridge the gap between emotional and physical wellbeing so they can make the necessary shifts to be the people they truly want to be. My goal in developing this transformational program for you is to help you on your journey to nutritional and lifestyle wellness.

As you make your way through the program, you’ll get answers to important questions like:

  • How does my gut get inflamed and what the heck is leaky gut?
  • What is the truth about gluten-free?
  • Why do I hold onto weight when I think I’m eating clean?
  • What does water have to do with weight loss?
  • What does sleep have to do with sustaining weight loss?
  • How much exercise do I need to sustain weight loss?
  • And so much more!

“Through the SHIFT Program, I saw an extreme correlation between what I put into my body and my resulting energy and actions. I learned how to cook in a healthier way, and I learned immediately which foods “feed” me and which deplete me.

 

“While I did not start the SHIFT Program to lose weight, I probably have lost a little over 10 pounds. I can see muscle tone that was hiding. But most importantly, I now have a guide for healthier eating. I go out to eat but know how to choose healthier things. I cook with healthy fats and feel satisfied. I choose not to eat certain foods because I know how it will make me feel. I don’t like to feel that way because I’m too busy living life and enjoying it.

 

“Jen is extremely knowledgeable and has a wonderful approach to the SHIFT. It’s not about beating yourself up or losing weight. It’s about learning what your body likes and doesn’t like and feeding it in a loving way. She is kind and supportive and asks questions that make you discover new things about how you approach your health, as well as your emotions and actions—as we do one thing, we do everything. I learned to take some cooking risks, and I enjoy cooking a little bit more—two things I used to NEVER do. In the past, this would never happen because I dreaded cooking. Now, I’m excited to see what new healthy concoctions I can learn. Importantly, my kids are seeing a role model and have started to try the healthy foods I’m making, and together, we are creating new ones.

 

“As with life, the SHIFT is a journey, not a destination. Get ready for the ride and for discovering new things about yourself and your body.”

— Deborah

How to Get Unstuck by Moving from Contemplation to Action

I just completed a great new 4-week SHIFT program with Summit Bar Method, and the experience gave me new insights about how the six tools of living Simple Clean and Whole have such an effect on keeping it CLEAN!

These are the six tools of living Simple Clean and Whole, which are explained in detail in my free Back to Basics Guide:

  1. Water
  2. Breath
  3. Sleep
  4. Movement
  5. Nutrition
  6. Self Care (Self Soothe)

I have witnessed over 100 clients who have made Back to Basics the root system of the tools that sustain them during times of obstacles. They are so simple. Although, sometimes the simpler things or actions are, the harder it is for a person to make them happen.

The Difference between Making a Change and a Transformation

To truly transform, you first need to start practicing the tools to make a SHIFT. Once you start to SHIFT, it becomes a practice — a practice of the six Back to Basics tools of living Simple Clean and Whole.

When people say they’re changing, you need to understand that change happens every minute of every day. It’s the SHIFT that moves you to transformation. It’s a process of practice. Just like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, it takes time to transform.

As I said, change happens constantly, but making the SHIFT that moves you to transformation can be a lot more difficult.

Where Most People Get Stuck – Contemplation

Where I see most of my clients getting stuck is in the contemplation stage. This is the stage that we know all too well.

Contemplation is where you want to make a SHIFT and know what you need to do. You know you need the right support. You’re just tired and wellness weighs heavily on your mind and body. It’s when you feel crappy putting on your clothes!

In the Contemplation stage, you’re aware that you’re fighting an uphill battle ALONE. It’s when you actually need some kind of guidance and support. It’s also when you tell yourself, “I know I have to take care of myself, but I have to:

  • Travel for work
  • Wait until my kids start school
  • Wait until after the holidays
  • Wait until Monday
  • Wait until the season changes
  • Wait until I get home from vacation
  • Wait, wait, wait, wait…”

Do you see the common theme that’s keeping you stuck in the Contemplation stage? It’s excuse after excuse so you don’t have to take the action to make the SHIFT. Instead, most of us wait for that magical, mystical moment to SHIFT.

It goes Back to Basics and the six tools of living Simple Clean and Whole. You need to practice these tools — water, breath, sleep, movement, nutrition, and self care — or you won’t be able to make the SHIFT that moves you to transformation.

It’s about self care! We tend to put things, places, people, and more in front of ourselves. You can’t make a SHIFT if you’re not practicing the tools to move you forward. Instead, you’ll remain stuck in the Contemplation phase!

Real Transformations

I want to share some feedback from my clients with you, so you can see that SHIFTing and transforming really are possible. You can do it!

I want to thank you for your knowledge, encouragement, and support over the last four weeks. I am at a point in my life where I spend a lot of time caring for grandchildren, who bring me so much joy, as well as an ill sister and elderly parents. In order to do this, I have to take care of myself. You have given me the tools to move forward in a simple, clean and whole way. This program has helped improve my physical as well as emotional being. I will continue to be very much aware of how to nourish my body so that I can feel my best. Thank you, thank you!!!

– Nancy

 

“Working with Jen was transformational. I already eat well, but I was missing key ingredients like healthy fat. Including fat in my diet makes me feel so much better. But more importantly, the emotional nutrition and self-care Jen guided me through has helped me love myself and others around me so much more. I am in grateful for her coaching.”

– Robin Schepper,

 

“Awakening, really listening to myself, and taking initiative to show up for the only “home” I will ever live in lead me to Shift 21. That home is my spirit, my mind, and my body. I spent a lifetime becoming the me that I am; it was time to unveil the me I’d never met. Jen’s Shift 21 experience, guiding hand, and warrior heart allowed me to expand into more than just the shell of myself that I had been living in. Choosing this opportunity with Jen’s guidance to explore further than the surface allowed me to see where I was unbalanced in my life.

 

“The experiment of diving deeper into the inquiry of Self was full of valleys, plateaus, and mountain tops. At times, these were challenging, but now I acknowledge them as integral parts of my growth. Shift 21 skillfully guided me through places and aspects of my life uncovering “aha” moments of why I was unbalanced whether it was in my diet, relationships, physical self, spiritually, or emotionally. Holistically, I sense I am more balanced in all areas after exploring for the 21+ days. I am living in a whole and completed body, mind, and spirit.

 

“This journey for me was far more than a “program.” It is a lifestyle. For me, Shift 21 was easy to dive into and cultivate as it is laid out methodically for each step. While I was maneuvering through, it offered an abundance of support, easy planned meals, one-on-one encouraging conversations, a breakthrough where I didn’t know I needed a break through, Jen’s recordings full of convictions, challenges, fun, meditation, did I mention support, and so much more.

 

“As Jen would say, ‘It is not about the destination, it’s about the journey.’ I choose to fluidly and gracefully continue to be in the experiment of life while trusting the process and will continue to journey through my days with Shift 21 knowledge as the key to my home.

 

“With sincere gratitude, thank you Jen for sharing your zone of genius. I am forever changed for knowing you.”

– Mandy

If these clients can get to this point, so can you! The next step is to tack ACTION – scary right? I feel you! I’ve been there!

My new SHIFT Program will launch during the four weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so stay tuned. You don’t want to miss it!
