A reminder

Yep – that’s me a few years ago. I came across the picture when I was going through a box of photos. (I really, really, need to put all those pictures in an album – but that’s for another time). I figure if I post this picture, it will be out there and keep me motivated to stay on track. What keeps you motivated?

Why I drink Shakeology

Before I started drinking Shakeology on a daily basis, I was not getting all my servings of fruits and veggies that we are supposed to get.  I won’t lie, my nutrition sucked.  Every day I craved sweets like you wouldn’t believe.  I didn’t have time to make my breakfast in the morning, so on the way to work, I would stop at Peets for a non-fat, sugar free Vanilla latte and a pastry.  If the line at Peets was long, I’d hit Starbucks and get something similar.

Then a friend of mine suggested I try Shakeology.  I was skeptical at first. The first time I tried it, I just mixed it with water.  ICK.  I thought “people like this?”  But the more I looked into and found out all the ingredients they use to make this – I thought I’d try it again. This time, I BLENDED IT with a banana, Better N’ Peanut Butter (from Trader Joe’s), ice and water.  HELLO!!! What a difference.  It tasted like a freakin’ awesome milkshake.  Not some health nut protein shake.  I couldn’t get over how this one shake is like hitting the salad bar 5x.

I no longer have to drink caffeine every morning to wake myself up.  I have lots of energy now.  I no longer crave sweets on a daily basis because I have my chocolate shake every day!   It’s like dessert, and really, who wouldn’t want to start their day off with some dessert? Seriously, this shake is a total no brainer for those who want to get their nutrition on track.  And here is some proof:

FYI – even though I’m not there yet, I was told that Shakeology helps with hot flashes! So ladies, if you’re going through the “change” and your doc wants to put you on hormones — you may want to check out Shakeology.
