OK - so someone asked me about this Shakeology business. I thought it would be easier to just lay it out in a blog rather than a big message.
Shakeology is a once a day meal replacement that comes in chocolate or greenberry. I've never had greenberry b/c the color weirds me out, but I love the chocolate. So does my husband, and trust me ladies - he ate pure crap every day! He knew the best Casey's location in a 3 county area for the best breakfast sandwich, he loved double cheeseburgers, and any kind of rockstar energy drink was his friend. He also has high cholesterol. PS - we are retesting in 2 more months & bet you money it's down!
So we took the plunge & love the shakes. I personally have more energy, less cravings, and definitely better digestive health - LOVE it! It's really easy for me to make. I have mine for breakfast & I mix one cup milk, some powdered peanut butter, and instant coffee crystals with ice. It's delicious & really whipped & filling. So far I'm down 5 pounds, partly to Shakeology & partly because of P90x. Jade is down 12 pounds!
Now the price you are asking. It's $4 a day, but if you are eating fast food for lunch - if you replaced lunch - it's cheaper than a meal at the drive thru. Now, if you sign up to be a beach body coach you get a 25% discount off of everything! This means their amazing supplements & their workout DVDs. No one even has to know you are a coach unless you want them to. So if you are a coach it's $3 a day. This is WHY I am a beach body coach b/c Jade & I both are on this shake, and it's a huge savings for us. Not because I have a beach body YET anyway.
So far I love beach body because it's a company committed to life fitness & healthy nutrition. So they offer supplements, but they also push exercising & making healthy food choices. They aren't the "quick" fix to thin we are constantly looking for.
So anyway, if you are interested and want more information, please click here or email me.
Oh and Miss Smith - you could totally rock P90x if I can. It's all about pushing yourself to your level of intensity - which I promise isn't the same as the people on his DVD, but if you do what you can do - it's very possible & still an intense & rewarding workout!
