Happy weekend everyone! We are up and moving and grooving on this beautiful morning, getting ready for Easter and time with Family.  As many of you saw last night on my snap chat (JordynAshleyFitness), I had an eventful night of wanting to put Guinness up for adoption 😉 But he was full of cuddles and being a good boy when Nick got home so he’s off my crap list! As promised, I put a post together about my honest opinions on the IdealFit products I have been using.  I made a list of the questions many of you have asked and I hope to cover everything in this post.  But if I miss something, please feel free to reach out :)


Let me begin by saying I am and always have been a skeptic on supplements. I always used to think I didn’t need anything to help me, I just eat healthy and work hard. Which is wonderful if that works for you, but I have learned you can use products that are SAFE and HEALTHY and HELP you to your goals. Throughout my years of working out consistently, eating healthy, and now assisting others in their health journey, I never came across a product I was 100% satisfied sharing with my clients, friends, and family.  That’s where IdealFit is different <— that sounds so sales pitch like! Even though I am partnered with IdealFit, I am in no way being compensated for this post so I hope you are confident you are getting my full honesty here, as always! I would never partner with any company I didn’t stand behind 100%


I consume 3 IdealFit products each day! I’m going to go into detail about all three of them and share all the details with you.  Quick little side note in case a few of my men readers are reading today… sorry guys, these products are geared towards the specific needs of women, so please keep reading and pass the GOODNESS on to a special woman in your life 😉

IdealLean Protein:


IdealLean Protein contains 80 calories (which is amazing for a protein, but being the calories are so minimal, this is NOT a meal replacement) and 20 grams of whey protein isolate, so you can fuel your body right and it tastes SO good! Being the awesome women that we are, we have unique nutritional needs. IdealLean Protein meets those needs and I have been so impressed. They  added IdealFit Proprietary Recovery Blend, packed with L-Glutamine and superfruits to help our bodies recover from our workouts.  Pair all of that with the 20 grams of lean protein that it gives me, vitamin D, folic acid, magnesium, and calcium and it’s easy to see why I’m hooked.

But what has impressed me the most is how LEAN this protein actually is! A Protein that is 80 calories, with 0 fat, 0 sugar, and 0 carbs, you can’t beat it. I do recommend IdealLean Protein to all of my clients, friends, and family members who are looking to lean out and build muscle.

You can get plenty of protein in throughout your daily diet but that protein isn’t assisting your body in what it needs to properly heal after your workouts and help build your lean muscle.  I take one scoop of protein with about 10 oz of unsweetened vanilla almond milk after every workout and it’s like I’m treating myself! It tastes like a milkshake and is fueling my body naturally by no unnecessary ingredients being added! WIN WIN. My only complaint with this product is I wish I could have it 5 times a day 😉



90% of the time I workout over my lunch hour.  There are absolutely times I am just dragging myself into the gym and times it’s hard to get myself pumped up for my workout.  This pre-workout has helped me not have to go through my workouts lacking energy, focus, and motivation. This product was designed to really take your training results to a whole new level of intensity by providing a natural and clean energy and focus booster! IdealLean Pre-Workout features their unique IdealLean Fat-Loss Blend with ingredients that help to stimulate fat burn and help you build a lean, toned, fit body.  How can you expect your best results if you are sluggish through your workouts?

They explain it perfect by telling us that their Energy and Focus Blend will help support your mood and concentration during your training, and the Endurance and Blood Flow Blend will allow you to push yourself even further towards your ideal body.  0 calories, 0 sugar, and 0 fat. I mean… come on!

My only gripe is more of a personal one with this pre-workout. I have always been very sensitive to pre-workout supplements.  If I take my yummy pre-workout TOO soon before my workout, I feel myself get a little antsy and a weird thing that’s always happened to be is my hands get itchy. But the SECOND I start to workout, it goes away. But let me tell you, I have ran into this before with one other clean pre-workout I tried years ago.  I will never forget the first time it happened I absolutely freaked out! I had no clue what was going on and was telling Nick to help itch my hands. HA for the love! The tingling or itching is nothing dangerous! The actual term for the itching is “paresthesia” and is a side effect caused by the beta-alanine in pre-workouts and is actually a big sign of a high quality pre-workout.



BCAA’s are something that was recommended to me a couple years ago when I felt like I had reached my peak and plateau, I needed something to help push me to the next level.  I was lifting heavier and more often but not seeing any additional results and I realized it’s because my muscles were not getting all they needed during my workout. I also workout rather intensely at times and need anything I can get that will naturally help with recovery.

The IdealLean BCAAs help my muscles recover quickly while working out. Yes, I drink the BCAA’s throughout my workout. They contain a unique Fat-Loss Blend to help keep lean, as well as coconut water powder to help stay fully hydrated (which is so important while working out!) IdealLean BCAAs once again have  0 calorie, 0 sugar, and 0 fat.

“If you’re serious about improving muscle recovery, building lean muscle, and burning fat, the last thing you want is to reach for a men’s supplement packed with a bunch of calories and sugar to refuel after training. IdealLean BCAAs is specifically designed to maximize women’s weight loss and jumpstart lean muscle growth! Each serving of IdealLean BCAAs offers 5 g of BCAAs to reduce muscle soreness and promote muscle building -all without any sugar or calories!” I have been super impressed with the BCAA’s! I have been able to push myself further in my workouts without having difficulty walking for the next week due to soreness. I recommend this product to my new clients who are introducing new workouts into their routine as too much soreness can be painful and harmful!


There you have it! What each product does, why I love it, and why I will continue to use it and recommend this clean and lean product to my clients and loved ones. If you have ANY additional questions at all please feel free to reach out or email me at

Going Natural With Your Health & Beauty Regimen

Good Morning beauties!!! Wanting to chat with you about something I have been experimenting with a little more lately. I am one of those people who cannot walk out of Target without a new beauty product of some kind, I love to try new products. I use Rodan & Fields for my daily face-care and I absolutely love it <– more on that later 😉 But as for other products I have in our home, I have been paying attention to the ingredient list and it is CRAZY how many chemicals are in some of the products we use every single day.  My recent experiment if you will, is getting rid of non natural products from my beauty routine.


If your shelves and cupboards are stacked with chemical-based health and beauty products like mine used to be, it’s time to make a change. Many chemical based items may actually be doing more harm than good for us…. scary! Do you swear by a cheap shampoo that adds instant shine to your hair? Well, it could be that it is just adding a layer to your hair to give the impression of improved health. With prolonged use, this will build up and could actually cause the hair long-term damage.

I have been repairing my hair for quite sometime now from the shampoo I used all throughout my college years.  This is just one example of how seeming innocent buys can seem to be doing a good job, but are actually highly detrimental.

Thankfully, the industry is developing at a relatively fast pace these days. Ten years ago if you went searching for an organic body wash or shampoo, you would maybe have one option.  Now, the industry is becoming so health focused because being natural and health focused is now the “cool thing”  There are now more options than even for when it comes to choosing a more natural, organic route. Here are a few options to consider adding to your health and beauty regime…

Coconut oil


Coconut oil is having a real moment currently, and for good reason. Those of us already using it can’t remember how we lived without it! The uses are so many and so varied, to mention just a few of its uses and benefits…you can use it remove eye-makeup, to whiten teeth, you can turn it into homemade soap or use it topically to get rid of cellulite. This list could go on. In fact, look here for a whopping 101 uses. It really is amazing to me how much one product can be used for! 

Dietary supplements

As well as what you put on the outside of your body, healthy and well-being shines from within. Taking 30-40 drops of charlottes web oil per day, for example. It is said to improve the wellness of both your body and your mind, and the counteract even the most severe of stresses.

How many of you take a daily Vitamin and minerals?  I was so bad about that for YEARS, knowing it should be a part of my daily routine, I finally made this a priority a year ago and feel so great knowing my body is getting everything it needs. Women’s Health list the six most important vitamins we need as women! Vitamin A, C, and D, B Vitamins, Iron, Calcium. Iron, for example, keeps anemia at bay, while calcium is all about the strong bones!  As for those that help with beauty, Vitamin C helps fight wrinkles. Vitamin A slows the aging process of the skin. I always knew I needed those vitamins, but actually knowing what each of them do for me is really nice. 

Homemade face masks

I have tried a couple homemade face masks and really enjoyed it! It’s neat making it yourself and feeling the difference on your skin!  Chances are, you already have most of the ingredients you’ll need in your kitchen. Natural, homemade face masks are great because they’re just as effective, but you know exactly what has and hasn’t gone into them. Here is how to make a simple banana one that I tried. Mix half a banana and a tablespoon of both honey and orange juice. If you want to give your mask some exfoliation, add some oatmeal. This recipe is suitable for all skin types. Once you’ve made one, you can start experimenting with other ingredients. Marie Claire has four suggestions here. I still need to try her lightening mask, but I have really loved the other three so far! 

Hope you enjoyed today’s GOODNESS on some natural tips!! Add it to your list: experiement with coconut oil, start using a multivitamin, and do a homemade face mask :) You won’t regret any of these choices. be the best you.

Happy almost Friday. xoxo

Apple Pie Bites

Hi!! So sorry for my lack of blogging lately! I have been crazy busy, but I promise majority of that busy has to do with new fun and upcoming things on My Goodness, so stick with me :)  Today I am sharing a super easy and fun recipe we experimented with last weekend.

apple pie bites

Apple Pie Bites. Does it get any more Fall than that? Not only were these extremely simple to throw together, they were a hit for our family! My in-laws had all of us over for Sunday football and dinner.  Nick and I brought all of the fixings to make these little bites and prepared them at half time. They were ready within 10 minutes and we stuck them in the oven after dinner. We served them with a little side of vanilla ice cream and dessert was finished and tasting awesome! They were approved by all ages 😉 our little niece couldn’t keep her fingers off of her mama’s dessert and all of the adults loved theirs as well.

We made two batches so we doubled this recipe. Enjoy!!

Apple Pie Bites


  • •¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • •1 teaspoon apple pie spice, and a little extra apple pie spice for sprinkling on top of crescent rolls
  • •2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • •⅓ cup chopped pecans
  • •1 large Haralson apple, cored and sliced into 8 slices
  • •1 (8-ounce) can low fat Pillsbury crescent rolls


  1. •Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. •In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and apple pie spice.
  3. •Melt butter and mix your apple slices in butter
  4. •Arrange crescent roll triangles on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Evenly add the brown sugar mixture onto each triangle.
  5. •Sprinkle each triangle evenly with the chopped pecans.
  6. •Place an apple slice on the wide end of each triangle. Wrap crescent roll dough around each apple.
  7. •Brush each crescent roll with remaining butter. Sprinkle lightly with additional apple pie spice.
  8. •Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for a few minutes before serving and enjoy!

Budget Friendly Fall Fashion

 Well hello my long lost friends! I can’t remember the last time I went 5 days without stopping in with a post. My apologies!! As you all know life can be so crazy busy and mine is just that :) I hope you all had SUCH a great Labor Day weekend.

If you follow me on Instagram @JORDYNELIOFF, you know Nick and I traveled to spend the holiday with my family. We had SO much fun spending the weekend on the water with family and friends and celebrating Nick’s birthday <3


It’s nuts to think I was in a swimsuit two days ago and now get to transition into some of my favorite Fall clothing items this week. I am ALL about affordable, comfy, simple, and timeless pieces of clothing. I live in skinny jeans, leggings, oversized shirts, bulky scarfs, sweaters, boots, and flats for about 9 months of the year. Anything that is budget friendly and good quality, I love to get my hands on! Below I have posted my favorite Fall clothing right now from both Forever21 and Old Navy.  I’m not much of a shopper so any shopping I do, happens online and these two stores are my financial friendly, go to!

Jumping into my Forever21 Fall picks first. Every item I have featured is under $33 and the pictures include links! I have been eyeing this Utility jacket for sometime now. I also recently ordered the grey tunic turtleneck and burnt orange blouse.

Next up is Old Navy!! They have such an awesome Fall sale going on right now and if you enter the code: NICE at checkout, you get an extra 25% off your online purchase now until the 14th. MAJOR SALE! I received a large order in the mail last week where I bought two pairs of skinny jeans, 5 shirts, and a scarf and paid less than $100 and love absolutely everything! NO this is not a sponsored post 😉 I just can’t help but get excited when I find good deals and I want to share it with YOU!

The Top My Goodness Workouts

Hello! I hope this week is treating you all well. I want to touch on just TWO things before I jump into today’s post. The first thing being, please bare with me as you may start to see some changes on My Goodness. I am making some exciting changes, but I am trying to do so without my format that you are all used to, changing too much. Thank you for your support!! Secondly, ya’ll I continue to be in awe with the group taking on my 31 Day Challenge right now. Only 5 days left for those of you who started on August 1st. The motivation and results have been so much fun to see and you are kicking butt!! Remember, if you fell off the wagon, that’s okay!!! It’s all about staying realistic, it shouldn’t be stressful to try to fit in your workouts, if it is, adjust your expectations of yourself. Heck! Others can be hard enough on you, be nice to yourself :)


One of the fun newer features in my new blog behind the scenes format is being able to see what posts you enjoyed the most. I love this! Before I could only view my number of subscribers and site views. NOW I can see how many times each specific post was viewed, how many clicks a specific workout got, how many shares it received… so much fun and really helps me see what everyone is enjoying and what I can back away from as well

Today am featuring my top workouts from the last 10 months. These seem to have be a HIIT <— 😉 Enjoy!! You can always find all of my workouts and challenges under the Workouts tab at the top of my blog as well. Majority of my workouts are inspired by busy busy schedules! Most of these are at home, no/little equipment, and quick workouts. As I preach probably more than necessary, variety is key to seeing results, which is why I have SO many new workouts coming your way, I can’t wait!!

30 Day Core Challenge



Low Impact At Home Workouts

Well hello hello! We made it through Monday… it wasn’t all that bad :) Within the next month, you will see some changes on My Goodness Blog. Nothing too extreme but I will have an entire post explaining the changes when that time gets closer! Nevertheless, I have been spending some time looking at all of my content throughout the last 10 months and I realized a few things.

Number 1, I am such a scatter brain :) so thank you for sticking with me on this blogging journey! When I say you will get a little bit of everything on this blog, that couldn’t be any more true. From the cute babies and puppies in my life, to a new recipe or workout, followed by a random DIY project or other random goodness in my life. I’m all OVER the place here, but that won’t be changing!!

Number 2, I have had some questions on where you can find all of my workouts instead of scrolling through every single post. The answer to this is: under the “workouts” tab at the top of this page and click on “My Goodness HIIT/Challenge Workouts” there you will find every workout I have created in the last 10 months.


Next is what brought me to today’s topic.  A lot of my workouts are pretty high impact and super intense.  Well not all workouts need to be this way.  It’s important to give those knees and joints some care, and still workout while doing so.  I promise you, a squat IS still in fact working your legs and booty even if you are not jumping along with it 😉 I have came up with two different low impact at home workouts, along with finding one I like on Pinterest.


A quick google search can clarify any questions you have on any of the workouts (how to do it, correct form) or feel free to ask me any questions as always! Part of the variety that I preach in our workouts is slowing down the pace and giving our muscles and joints some lower impact workouts. Take these workouts nice and slow, really focusing on correct form.

For example: on the below workout squat down and come up very slow, squeezing your bottom tight when you reach the top of your squat. When you squat down, be sure your knees are not reaching over your ankles- if you do find your knees are in front of your ankles when you squat down, remember to push your butt out as if you’re reaching back to sit in a chair that’s just a liiiiiitle to far away :) On the leg raises, stand facing a wall and lightly put your hands on the wall for balance. Slowly raise your leg to the side, squeezing your bottom while doing so, and slowly bring it back down. Like I said, take these workouts nice and slow.



 Enjoy!!! Have a great Tuesday everyone!

Dairy Free Chia Pudding

Happy Monday to YOU! The weekends just continue to fly right by us so quickly. I finally got to crackin and dedicated majority of my weekend to school work. I know that is extremely exciting and you all are very jealous 😉 We did fit in some family time, workouts,  had a little cooking date, and some blog prepping to make my weekend not entirely consistent of typing fingers and my nose in a textbook. I hope you all had a great weekend!


Today I’m sharing a recipe with you all. I don’t like to go into much detail or tell you about any recipes I haven’t personally tried myself and as most of you know my husband wears the chef hat in our household so it’s not often I get to share recipes. Welllll I tried something new and it’s worth sharing :)


We are all about easy and on the go breakfast during the week. I made this Chia Seed Pudding the night before and had it for breakfast the next morning. It was SO good. It literally taste like having vanilla ice cream for breakfast, with the health benefits of amazing chia seeds and fresh fruit… WIN WIN! My diet is lactose free so we have been playing around with some dairy free recipes and this quick and easy little number is at the top of my list now. Chia seeds are a power food that I suggest adding in every smoothie so knowing this pudding has so many of them in it, I was so excited to try and it didn’t disappoint.




It literally look me maybe 5 minutes last night to prepare today’s breakfast. All you do is mix the three ingredients together, pour them into a container that will be sealed tight (we used mason jars), and throw it in the fridge until the next morning. Add the toppings you prefer in the morning and you are set.

Chia Seed Pudding
  • 13 oz coconut milk (this is in fact dairy free)
  • 1/4 cup of chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp. agave nectar (honey)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
Mix everything together, put into your containers, refrigerate over night, add your toppings of choice the next morning & enjoy!

Toppings suggestions:

  • blueberries
  • strawberries
  • shaved almonds
  • shaved unsweetened coconut
  • dried cranberries
  • granola

Tips for Chia Seed Pudding:

  • Have floss on hand! Those little seeds just love to get in your teeth and hangout
  • Next time I may use a little less coconut milk
  • Give it a try! Some people stay away from chia seeds because they seem odd, but they have zero taste, it’s just the texture. The health benefits from these little tiny seeds are SO great!!

Are there any other toppings you can think of that my be good in this pudding? Share them :)

Have a great start to your week!!


31 Day Challenge- Week 3

Top of the morning to ya! How is your weekend starting off? I have ONE goal and ONE goal only for this beautiful Saturday… get my 15 page paper written for my current class I’m taking for my masters program. AND here I sit just blogging away 😉 the day is young!


I cannot believe my August ladies are on week 3 of the 31 day challenge already! Thank you again for all who jumped on board this month and are rocking my workouts. Between July and August 28 of you took on this challenge and it couldn’t make me more happy! I had many different emails about week 2 so let me address some of those before we jump into week 3.

Week 2 is tough! I know I’m a crazy person with asking you to do 50 power jacks to start out a workout 😉 just remember modification is completely necessary sometimes AND if these workouts are kicking your butt and you’re feeling like laying on the floor for a couple hours after you complete a workout.. I’m doing my job! HIIT workouts are intense and leave me literally drenched in sweat every single time, so do not wait for them to get easier because they won’t. Your body will just get stronger. Some of you also “fell off the wagon” a bit this week and let’s have real talk for a second LIFE HAPPENS! Missing a workout or core challenges is okay, I promise! This challenge is designed to be flexible and forgiving. These workouts are also great to just do on their own if you aren’t doing the challenge as well. You will get out what you put in so jump back on that wagon this week and work that much harder. YOU deserve to feel great about yourself. No matter how busy and crazy our schedules can get, remember these HIIT workouts take between 15-25 minutes and I bet you will feel much better if you wake up 15-25 minutes earlier or go to bed later to get your workouts checked off that never ending list. BE THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF! Something that helps me push through those challenge workouts is knowing that because of my hard work, my body will be burning calories HOURS after this workout…cool!

Week 3

Alright week 2 is in the rearview mirror and we are never looking back at those 50 power jacks again (until I make you do them again) 😉 Helloooo week 3, it’s time to dominate you! Above are your week three workouts. Results are all about variety, you need to keep your body guessing. I have designed week three to change it up a bit. Right away, you see that you have four challenge workouts instead of three….you’re welcome! There are some exercises this week where if you would like to, you can use weights. BUT these will still be effective if you do not use them. Feel free to add in weights as you would like. This week you could add them in with your Sumo Squats and Dead Lifts. <– click these links for examples.

One more I want to talk about is the famous “jump lunge to jump squat” I’m just going to tell you right now, these are intense. It’s all one motion and you count every time you squat.  Here is a great example of what this should look like. Your legs will be on fire but your booty and quads will love you :) Remember if you need to do 10 and take a quick breather before finishing your other 10, thats perfectly okay!

30 Day Core Challenge

Don’t forget to stay on top of the 31 day core challenge this week. Working your way to that 3 minute plank!! As always, be sure to let me know if you have any questions, I’m always here to help :)

I think I have made this post as long as possible putting off this paper. Off to schoolwork I go. Have a great weekend everyone! Watch for next week’s 2nd Giveaway on My Goodness and DIY spare bedroom remodel. Thank you as always for the support!
