Shakeology and Beachbody

Since the beginning of this year, I've started being very mindful of what I'm putting in my body. I'm trying to lose weight (aren't we all?) and just be healthier in general. I found a friend online who asked me if I wanted to make some extra money while working towards my goals. Sounds great right? So in May of this year, I joined Team BeachBody as an Independent Coach. I haven't really advertised what I've done because I felt like I should try out some of the products before I could really recommend them to anyone. I started with the Shakeology shakes.

The chocolate flavor is good! My favorite way to drink it is in a blender with 1/2 a cup of frozen cherries and a cup of almond milk. Delicious!! And just today I put half of my shakeology in the freezer while I worked out and when I took it out it was slushy frozen goodness. Everyday I find something new or some new way that I love this drink. You can have a shake as a meal replacement or as a snack during the day. The shake itself (mixed with water) is only 140 calories.

I usually drink a shakeology in the morning for my breakfast. I have more energy and just feel better when I start my day with these. I can definitely tell a different when I miss my shakes.

If you want to try a shake for yourself, I have single serving packets of chocolate available for $5 each. If you want to jump start your weight loss you can do a 3 day Shakeology cleanse for $45 (9 shakes total).

I decided to start working out with the Turbofire program. I have never been in LOVE with a workout like this. It is fun, high energy,with lots of great music to keep you motivated to move harder and faster. The workouts are between 15mins and 55 minutes. I wear a heart rate monitor to see how many calories I'm burning per workout. I am addicted to seeing that number go higher! (so far, I range between 400-1000 cals per workout!)

So I've lost about 5 pounds and about 6 inches since starting Shakeology and Turbofire. I took before pictures but I'm not at the point yet to where I'm brave enough to post them. Maybe one day, when I have after pictures I'll do that. :)
