So, today I HAD to wear my boots with heels!
For those of you who don’t know me very well that probably doesn’t sound too crazy, right? But for those of you who do know me, you know that I would choose flats (or better yet, brightly colored sneakers) any opportunity I get!
So, why did I have to wear my very cute heels today?
Well, I had a concert with my violin students this afternoon, and even though I don’t normally wear heels for those types of concerts (I am already so tall, and they are so little, it makes meeting them at their level and bending over to help them out just that much harder) I found myself in the position of only having ONE pair of clean pants (other than some yoga leggings…).
This week has been crazy and neither Rob or myself got any laundry done, so I pulled the only decent pair of pants out of the closet and put them on. I have not worn then since July. I know I have lost weight and toned up, but during these few months my focus has been on how I feel, and not so much on the numbers. Well, today’s pants dilemma really highlighted how much my body has actually changed. My pants were dragging on the floor and I was walking all over them! I have lost so many inches around my hips, waist, and thighs, that my pants were tripping me up.
I have always been active, you all know I love my yoga, and I love inspiring others to get moving and healthy. But I have also always struggled with body image. I have been a big yo-yoer – gaining weight, then losing weight, then gainer more, then losing less – and this would leave me lacking confidence and self-worth…until August!
In August I started drinking Shakeology daily.
In 2010, when Rob and I did Insanity for the first time, we kept seeing these ads for Shakeology. We looked it up but it was too expensive for us, so we dismissed it. We didn’t do our research, we didn’t want to get “sucked in,” because we thought we couldn’t afford it. Well, it’s 4 years later and I am kicking myself!
We do have people ask us how we afford 2 bags a month (Rob kept drinking my shakes, so we had to get him his own bag). When I look at it, I see it as 30 meals in 1 bag (approx. $4.50 a meal, or if you are a coach or discount coach it works out to about $3.40/meal!), but it’s what’s inside the bag, and how it makes us feel that makes almost any price worth it!
It really is your daily does of dense nutrition!
I am surprised and shocked by my results, although I guess I shouldn’t be, since this is what everyone has been telling me about Shakeology for the last 4 years. I just didn’t want to believe them, and thought I could all get all the vitamins and nutrition into my diet on my own. And I tried. But our credit card did not enjoy my efforts all that much. Schizandra tablets, Ashwagandha pills, Spirulina powder, Maca powder, muti-vitamins (only organic and whole food based), eating organic and doing all our shopping at whole foods…aaaahhh! The list just kept growing, and I wasn’t feeling any changes in my body, moods, or energy levels (I later found out, most pills use fillers, and most multi-vitamins are too much for your body to handle all in one go).
Over the last 4 months our grocery and food bill (which still includes the occasional take-out) has decreased, along with my yo-yoing weight, swinging moods, unreliable digestion, and exhaustion! In the past, even when I followed a very strict clean eating diet and workout plan I never experienced lasting results like this.
There is nothing fake, no additives, no fluff, just pure, amazing, nutrient-dense goodness in each Shakeology serving. If you haven’t tried it out, Beachbody believes in their product so much that they offer everyone a 30 day, bottom of the bag, money back guarantee. If you don’t notice a difference or are not happy after 30 days you can send your empty bag right back to them for a full refund. Are you ready to see what Shakeology can do for you? I know you will be amazed, I was!
