Hey everyone!! As I have mentioned before, I recently became a Beachbody Coach. I absolutely love the Beachbody products because they actually work! I think they have been around since 1998 for a reason right? 🙂
No matter what your meal plan looks like, you NEED exercise and vitamins. Not vitamins as in a pill, because I don’t necessarily believe in that. I am talking about added nutrition to keep you healthy. A low carb or Paleo lifestyle is the best nutrition you can have, hands down. This lifestyle has worked wonders for me and a countless amount of others. I have lost 70 lbs to date, I am no longer pre-diabetic, I no longer have high blood pressure and I am no longer vitamin deficient. Healing your body from the inside out is the only way to go. No amount of exercise can erase the bad food you put in your body. People say “Abs start in the Kitchen” for a reason…because health starts from what you put in your body. Exercise helps longevity, overall health, and how you feel and look in the mirror, but it is not the answer for everything. The best health is a combination of nutrition, vitamins and exercise.
I have been overweight since I was 5, and I have hated it. When I got to high school I was old enough to change that on my own. I did Power 90, the first version of P90X, and lost 25 lbs in 2 months. Then since I was young I fell into “good enough” and stopped caring about it. This was the start of how I know Beachbody products work.
Fast forward 10 years and 1 child later, and I bought P90X for the same reasons. I did this program and lost 25 more pounds. After my 2nd child was born I did it again and lost 35. P90X and Tony Horton have been a life saver for me so far. However, after I lost the 35 pounds right after my daughter was born, my body slowed down and I wasn’t able to lose anymore weight. This is when I found Shakeology and Shawn T!
On January 2nd I started drinking Shakeology and working out with Shawn T. in Insanity! Today is January 18th and I have lost 8 pounds already! I am beyond excited about this, so I wanted to share my experience so far with you! Now that you have the back story, I will update from time to time about what is going on with my workouts and ShakeO nutrition.
Keep in mind, it hasn’t even been 3 weeks yet. Here are some of the benefits so far:
– I am always more on the tired side than the energetic side. Shakeology has changed that. I have enough energy to do my work outs every day and stay motivated.
– Sleeping 8 hours straight is a miracle for me, and the past week I have been able to. This must be because I use my energy for work outs, eat low carb and drink ShakeO.
– There are much less carbs than some of the other meal replacement shakes, so I am still able to stay within my reset guidelines and do my 30 Day Low Carb Challenge. There are only 9 net carbs.
– I can finally start losing weight. This is huge.
– I haven’t been able to do a push up, shoulder exercise or lift heavy weights for 2 years because I have the “frozen shoulder” issue. Ever since I started drinking ShakeO it has been feeling a lot better, and 3 days ago it completely went away so I was able to do all the push ups in Insanity. Hard to believe, but a HUGE deal for me!!! I have been dealing with this pain every single day for 2 years straight…I cant express how grateful I am for Shakeology and the ability to heal joint and muscle pain.
-There are over 100 Doctor testimonials stating ShakeO is all natural and healthy, it has made me feel so much better and even the kids love it. They have ice cream and other ShakeO recipes that come with your first order as well. This helps keep your entire family healthy.
These are just a few awesome things about Shakeology, I cant go a day without it now! I understand its a little pricey, but it only comes out to $4.30 per meal. That is less than any meal you can buy, and the nutrition is fantastic! Plus, if you order and sign up to be a club member you get 10% off! Your health is #1 and this is the only Shake that is all natural and will turn your health around. ShakeO, especially paired with low carb and work outs, will make you healthy from the inside out. It is completely worth it, and they know that based on their money back guarantee. You can finish all 30 days of Shakeology or finish any workout program, and if you are not satisfied for any reason, they will give you your money back! I have to say, I have never had to do this.
Shakeology is the reason I became a Beachbody Coach! I wanted to share all the amazing things it has done in hopes people discover Shakeology, better your health and drop all the pills you don’t need.
