“Keeping Up With the Joneses” – My First 90 Day Challenge

Happy New Year to you PFL! I thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart for your well wishes on my 1st blog anniversary! I am looking forward to sharing with  you as we journey this healthy living lifestyle in 2014! LET’S GET STARTED….

90 days is not as long as you may think! It’s just enough time to set a goal and get results! I completed my first 90 day challenge on Christmas! What an awesome surprise notification that was in my email inbox!


90 Day Challenge

If you don’t remember what the 90 Day Challenge is, jump over to my Home-Based business Holiday feature where I told you all about my start with the fastest growing weight loss program of the world or the recap of NST, the national convention. 

Keeping up with the Joneses 


Amber, the young one is a promoter and on the challenge.

Mother, who creeped on the challenge after watching Daddy for 2 weeks…

Roberta on the 90 Day Challenge

Daddy, all though his plate was full on Christmas day,  has worked hard for that opportunity.  He has stuck to his challenge most excellently and his current situation…

I am extremely proud of my family for sticking with the challenge.  I can personally attest to the fact that it is much easier to do the challenge when you have in house support evidenced by my parents working together.



Add breakfast and snacks to my meal plan. 

I have NEVER eaten breakfast, point blank period! I don’t need any lectures.  I know it’s the most important meal and blah and blah, blah, blah, and a little more blah!

If you go around a fitness instructor table, some will profess to like teaching on an empty stomach and others can’t fathom such a thing.

I am one who likes to teach and workout on an empty stomach. To be perfectly honest, whenever I try to eat, I’m quite gassy at the gym. I don’t enjoy that at all! The other thing, I’m just not hungry.

On this 90 day challenge, I managed to do a shake for breakfast and do the 2 suggested snacks a day.

Bananas, apples, oranges, and of course almonds have been my fruit/snack of choice and I’ve regularly added them  into my day!

It may seem awkward to readers that I did not have a weight loss goal on the 90 day challenge nor the goal of building muscle. However we all have something to work on. Mine was my diet regimen.  I am very proud of this new lifestyle change and the fact that the 2 meals that I do eat are a bit more portion controlled than before.

The challenge works on a number of levels!!!  I would love to have you join me.  The challenge is appropriate for ages 4 and  up!  I have several customers who have put their children and nieces/nephews on the challenge.

My 2nd 90 Day Challenge 

I have geared up to start my second 90 day challenge with the goal of building lean muscle. I think it will be a nice compliment to my BODYPUMP classes.

This means I will take 2 shakes a day but 1 of them will be after a workout. I will only be on this regimen 5 days a week because I don’t work out on Saturday and Sunday.  I will keep you posted.




New Year – New You

A lot of people will be making new goals this year with fitness and weight loss at the top of their priority list. You will receive some slack probably from your own household (unless of course you’re a Jones 😉 ), and probably from the regular gym rats who think you are in their way temporarily.  DON’T FALL VICTIM TO ANY OF IT!

My challenge to you, is to set your goals and STICK TO IT! A great way to stay focused is to create a VISION BOARD! Check out one of my very first posts for deets!

Vision Board Party

Vison Board Themed New Year’s Day Party – It’s too late for partying on New Year’s Day, but why don’t you call up your girls for a quick weekend gathering!


Ok that’s it! Hoping this Jones Family inspired your in some way to…

  1. I think that changing you eating patterns vs. having a weight loss goal is an excellent approach! One that I’m working on myself. Your family looks terrific! Also, I have to say that it doesn’t have to take a 50 or 100 pound weight loss to make a difference as far as appearance but your family is proof otherwise!

    My fitness to do is to do. Stick with my plan! Only two days off and five workout days.

    I’m doing my vision board on Pinterst this year and just adding things as I see them to help me stay focused throughout the year. When I make a big board at once I only pay attention to it for about a week. 🙂

    • I am doing that routine this year too. 5 days on and 2 off days! I am having fun switching up what I’m actually going to be doing.

      Thanks Carli!

  2. This month my goal is to focus on my nutrition. That is the SOLE reason why my weight loss has been so slow. I love to eat… all the time. I’m back at work today and amazed at how snacky I feel being back at my desk. lol. This has to get under control in order for me to be successful
    Kimberly (Manifest Yourself) recently posted…Thursday’s ThoughtsMy Profile

    • I’m right there with you. I am very proud of my nutritional changes. I have to take baby steps and remember that just bc I live at the gym doesn’t mean free will at the table!

  3. Joi, I love your white shirt in these photos! That is so my style. It may sound surprising because you probably see me wearing my “preschool chic” photos if you actually see photos of me..but you look GREAT!
    I love breakfast so it’s hard for me to fathom that people don’t eat it, but I’m curious to see how it goes for you and if you start to love it!
    Tamara recently posted…Just A Bit More Looking Back.My Profile

    • Thanks Tamara! I can see you in that shirt for sure. No breakfast food, only shakes. I can handle that and that alone!

  4. I so love that your whole family did this and got amazing results!! It’s SOOOO much easier when you have a “teammate” who is on board and you’re helping each other succeed. I’m beyond proud of you for eating breakfast!! That is huge! I know how hard it can be for someone who doesn’t eat it. Nice job. Hope you’re feeling the benefits 🙂
    Allie recently posted…2014 The Year of the BullMy Profile

    • I’m drinking breakfast, lol and yes I do feel benefits but it is still very challenging to stay in the mindset. I understand the struggle of changing habits. I guess this is how some people feel about exercising and do that effortlessly. At least now I can empathize with them with a touch of reality.

  5. So glad you posted this. I was about to search for a link to a similar post that’s conveniently linked here 🙂
    Anyway. Great job. Your family looks great. I got that same 90 day email (a while ago). I hadn’t even kept up with or thought about the time frame…but…
    I like to run on an empty stomach so I totally get that. We’ve set quite a few family goals in terms of fitness and nutrition. It’s already better doing it as a family.
    Happy New Year!

    • The kids too? I love that! I hope you will chat about that on the blog.

      Thanks Hope, especially for attempting the shakes in spite of 🙂

  6. Happy New Year! Hubby, Deuce and I spent New Years’ Eve with friends. New Year’s Day we made corned beef, black-eyed peas, and cabbage. I threw some chayote squash in there too.

    Good to see that you are doing challenges even though you already have an active fitness regimen. I was JUST LOOKING at my vision board two seconds before I read this post! I am going to update it for sure, but want to be very selective about what I put on there. I don’t do a regular breakfast either. Just coffee. I’m trying to do some sort of exercise each day and track it. Then blog about my results at the end of the month. Trying to keep up with the Joneses. You guys look great!
    Kimberly H. Smith recently posted…My One Word for 2014My Profile

    • I can’t wait for those posts Kim! Good luck!

      That New Year’s meal sounds delicious. I simply can not wait to eat with you one day, lol!

  7. I need to do a vision board in the worst way. You may have jogged my brain enough that I am might do one this weekend (if I do, I will report back to you!)
    I love that your entire family is in on the fitness challenge and doing so well! You are obviously a great inspiration.

    And no, I won’t lecture you about breakfast 🙂
    Ilene recently posted…A Modern Family ChristmasMy Profile

    • Thanks Ilene for I am really challenged by the breakfast routine even though it’s just making a shake. It’s all about the mindset. I was just saying to Allie that now I know how people feel when trying to transition into some sort of fitness activity.

  8. I’m putting the breakfast thing on the list of reasons why we get along so well!! I’m like you – I prefer to work out on an empty stomach and then I don’t like to eat right away so I rarely eat breakfast (at the normal time anyway!!).
    I love that your whole family participated in the 90 day challenge. And, I’ve said it before but your mom is beautiful – actually your entire family (including you!) are gorgeous!
    Kim recently posted…The FitBit ForceMy Profile

    • Awh so sweet Kim, Thanks so much. That list is so long. We have so much in common. I love when new discoveries are made with fellow blog friends!

  9. Great job, Joi! I think that maintaining a healthy diet is the most difficult part of a healthy lifestyle. This month for me is all about adding protein to my diet – especially in the mornings, and today it seemed to really help hold off my cravings later in the day. I always thought I had good breakfasts before, but I guess I wasn’t doing well enough! Building up lean muscle is definitely difficult, but if anyone can do it, you can! Best of luck on your next challenge!
    Leslie recently posted…Welcome 2014!My Profile

  10. At the top of my list this month is to get a Treadmill for my house. My excuse for not exercising is that I don’t have the time to go to the gym and run. So if I have the treadmill in my house, I’m hoping that that will eliminate the excuses!
    LaShawn recently posted…Words to Live By #1My Profile

    • That is an excellent option for fitness. You can kill two birds at once…well at least,, I’d catch up on my DVR if my workouts were at home.

      Good luck!

  11. I know my husband wants to try to eat a lot better. I must admit it hasn’t helped that I have had these extreme cravings already so far in the pregnancy. Sometimes I can’t eat much of anything but then when I want something…it’s just not healthy! We have stuck to working out together which is a plus. I force myself to do it even when I don’t want to because I know we both need to stick with it. I’m hoping to really get better about my eating habits again especially once my appetite is better most likely at the end of the month when I start the 2nd trimester. 🙂
    Brittnei recently posted…Blogging in 2014My Profile

    • Very challenging to eat without giving in to pregnancy cravings. Good thing you are still cleared to do exercise. It should make it much easier on you.

  12. Good for your family!! That is awesome! I am doing a plank challenge! And I have been very consistent with my running. No more taking a week off. I have taken a few days off here and there but I am getting in decent mileage so I am quite happy with the way things are going. I cut my run short today though because I took a spill on the ice.
    Michelle recently posted…Year in Review…The Best of 2013! {Ladies Only Blog Share}My Profile

    • Planks sound fun…not really, lol. I did some walking planks earlier. They’re always a killer!

      Hope you didn’t get hurt too bad hun!

  13. Joi,
    My weightloss goal is to start with losing 20 pounds ending with a final weightloss of 30 pounds to be considered healthy. I started to incorporate different workouts other than just going to the gym as I get bored very quickly. Also I have to work on my 2014 vision board!!
    Happy New Year’s!!

    • Hey Trina! That’s a very doable goal. You know I can help you get there LS! Happy New Year to you. Still not used to your new last name 🙂

  14. I really like this post. Losing weight is fun and healthy. I am so happy that you (A. Joi) introduced all of us to the challenge. I hope we keep it up in 2014. The shakes really work. Thanks to all of the readers for your nice comments. My family knows that God is good.

  15. Wow, glad to know you’re doing great with your fitness goal. I myself actually need to gain weight I believe. But I also think that I’m fine with my weight. Some of my health goals are to cook more healthy food, eat more veggies and lessen my softdrinks intake 🙂 Great challenge! Can’t wait to see how it turns out for all of you! 🙂

  16. Hi
    I had some free time this morning. I started reading your blogs viewing the challenge info/pics and I must tell you they are very inspiring!!
    What I needed as I try to sort out goals,plans for life changes in 2014.

  17. Look at you with the BREAKFAST! For as long as I have known you, you were #teamnobreakfast lol I love that you are trying it now! Like most my hardest challenge is eating/nutrition. I am trying new things and having insanely bad reactions to the stuff I used to eat so I call that progress! Your family looks so awesome. I am so proud of them!! (Love the title to this post btw)
    Nellie recently posted…Friday Fitness Check In: Adios Holidays, Bring On The New Year!My Profile

  18. Congratulations on your hard work! You look amazing! And working together towards a goal as a family must make it even more meaningful.
    I wish you an amazing 2014 where you will fullfill your aspirations together with your family!

  19. Everyone look great with their pounds off here and there. Even though we a long distance – mom and I do good when we are supporting each other in the same fitness goal. So usually when I’m starting over or getting gung-ho so is she or vice versa. We keep each other motivated. But we can also be really bad together 😉

  20. You and your family look wonderful! Congratulations to all of them! I am taking a break from Weight Watchers and simply counting my calories right now. I have my fingers crossed that I can stick with it.

    P.S. I love your hair in these pictures. Very model-esque and pretty on you. XOXO

    • Thanks Meredith. I’m sure you will do fine. Weight watchers like other programs are lifestyle changes. As long as you stick to that, I bet you will do amazing.
