Shakeology



Shakeology has been a amazing fitness and wellness tool for me in this journey to lose weight and get healthy. When I first thought about starting the 21 Day Fix, I didn't think I needed a shake, I thought wow this is going to taste like garbage, and can I really afford this? I really thought I could manage my eating habits and exercise and still reach my goals. Then I started to think back, to all the times I tried something before and gave up. Gave up because it was to strict, because I still had cravings and would give in to them, because I knew better than what the plans talked about. Then I thought about how much I spend at lunch every day, or at breakfast, or when I didnt feel like cooking and would order out. In any given day, for just me alone, I could spend $30 or more on 3 meals!! I never really thought about that before. So then I said well yes clearly I could afford this, since it breaks down to $4 per meal. Replacing 1 meal, and getting my butt into gear to plan and prep my meals would be saving me money! And really who doesn't like to save? I decided to give Shakeology a try.


I received my shakeology order and my first shake I blended ice, 1 cup almond milk, 1 cup of blueberries, and 1 tbsp almond butter. I was shocked! This was good for me? This was healthy? This tasted like candy! I was hooked for the simple reason it tasted so good! After a week, I decided to experiment to make a pumpkin pie flavor. Well that one didnt go so well, but I would not dare throw it out! I got better at mixing the shakes as the days went on and now I add spinach or kale - just to give it a little more extra (and to get 2 more green containers in per day :) ) I love trying new recipes, and I look forward to having my shake everyday. I can not imagine a day without it. 

By day 21, I was down 10.5 pounds. I knew this was possible with the help of Shakeology. I drink my shake for either breakfast or lunch. I immediately noticed changes in my body when drinking Shakeology. I was sleeping better. I was less moody. My cravings for cookies, cakes - down to a minimum! My digestion was finally on track, my nails and hair stronger!  

When I think back to all my doubts, my excuses, about trying Shakeology I chuckle now. All it really was the fear of the unknown. Fear of taking a chance and failing. Fear of it tasting gross. Fear that it would work. If it worked, then I didnt know as much as I thought I did, which would mean it was my fault I failed all those other times, not the "diet" as I so liked to blame. I had to take responsibility, grown up and put my big girl panties on. I had to face the demons and the liars in my head that tell me I can't do something and tell them to keep quite. I can do this, I will do this, and I will succeed!

Why Shakeology?

I love Shakeology because I am a busy parent and it is a quick and convenient way to get complete nutrition. It supplies me with the energy I need to help keep up with the kids and my hectic lifestyle. It is also easier to make and tastier than a salad, and it is an excellent way to eat healthy when eating a full meal is not possible. If you don't like eating fruits and vegetables then this is a great way to get all the benefits of eating a full bowl of fruits and vegetables without having to actually eat them.
