THE LOW DOWN AND DIRTY ON SHAKEOLOGY!!!

IMG_20160518_105146I am going to get real today!!!! I hear to often misguided information on this fantastic super food that I call my life line!!!
So I want to set a few things straight today!!!
You with me????

Shakeology is not a protein shake!!!! I know sometimes it can be easy to compare it to everything else you hear about. But don’t!! Shakeology is a nutrient rich super food. It 100% natural, not one chemical added to it to make it taste better. It contains over 70 Natural ingredients that gives you your daily dose of dense nutrition. -You get your super foods, amino acids, digestive enzymes, anti oxidants, pre and pro-biotics and more. I have tried at least a dozen of others and they don’t compare to the taste or the benefits!!!
I often hear people complaining about the carbs and fats in Shakeology as opposed to others…. Listen I get it!!! I used to think the same thing!! Being on low-carb diets trying to loose that extra baggage is tough! However, these low carb diets are proven to be less efficient when you also try to incorporate them also into a fitness program. Which you should be doing!!!
Yes, carbs are the macronutrient most prone to turn to fat, but that’s only when they’re not being used properly. They’re also the body’s preferred source of fuel, as in, they’re the most efficient way to fuel workouts. Without carbs, your body can convert protein and fat (both dietary and bodily) to fuel, but it’s a less efficient pathway, so may be prone to issues like low blood sugar or worse your muscles may start to break down! So adding Shakeology to your plan shouldn’t harm you in anyway. You should have AT THE LEAST that many carbs in your diet. Simply put, carbs help you work out harder and that will IMPROVE your results.
Here is the big one! It is to expensive—- Now I have talked about this before and I am going to share it again!! I know with today’s economy many people are on fixed incomes. It is hard to think about spending money on a something like this, so let’s take a minutes and LOOK AT THE REAL VALUE.
Take a day and look at how much you spend on a healthy meal? Or just a meal in general? $5 , $6, $7 maybe! If you are eating healthy a salad at the store will run you at least $7!!!! Now look at what you are eating for the one meal. How nutritious is it? Shakeology, will run around $4.33 per shake!!! HELLO!!!!! Are you hearing me yet????
I bet a lot of you spend more than that on your coffee house runs alone!!! I mix mine with Coffee and not only am I getting my most nutritious meal of the day, it tastes so much better than anything I would get at a coffee house!!
Here is something that I share in my challenge groups!! Let’s do a little visualization!!! You go to the store and buy yourself a months worth of meals for just you!! How much do you think you would spend???? Can you duplicate the ingredients and nutrition that you would get with Shakeology??? Think about that!!!! 🍏🍌🍗🍓🍆
I don’t need to loose weight, I don’t need it! —- Ugggg I stomp my feet like a little kid when I hear this!!! People you are missing the point!!! Today’s society has marketed so many quick weight loss fads that we have it in our minds that all nutritious drinks are just for weight loss. We have in in our minds that because we already exercise we don’t need it!! Shakeology is not a weight loss shake!!! Shakeology is about HEALTH!!!! When you put the RIGHT nutrients in your body it helps it to heal, repair, and thrive. You will have more energy, less cravings for all that junk, and YOU WILL become more active!!
Now for those that need to shed a few pounds; with Shakeology, weight loss can be the result of this amazing does of dense nutrition( along with proper exercise) SO AGAIN IF YOU WANT TO LOOSE WEIGHT YOU HAVE TO GET HEALTHY!!!

My family thrives on Shakeology!!! I honestly can not image us not having it everyday!! As a special needs mom I know that everytime I am giving my son a delicious shake to drink as a treat, I am doing more for his body than any medicine ever could!!!

For myself I am a better person, I am more focused, and I have much more energy to be the mom I need to be!!!

I hope this helps clear up a few things and I would love to be your coach and help you get started to healthier lifestyle!!!

It Is Unhealthy But Call It What You Want – The Courage To Change

I am not going to pretend to be an expert !
You don’t have to be an expert just look around at your neighbors look at your community look at your family, you will see that we have a problem with obesity in this country! Even in my own family we still face the struggles of fighting obesity every day! My son, my fiance, even myself. I may have lost a lot.of weight but I am still considered over weight.
I can only speak through my experiences! But I’m telling you it doesn’t have to be this way but it does take strength courage and honesty to make the first step!

Strength – Begin making those difficult choices of exercise and eating healthy
Courage– To keep doing it day after day and fight those negative thoughts and doubts that you will have!
Honesty -Being honest with yourself that you want to or need to make the change!

To often I hear from people who are overweight and unhealthy that they are fine!

Yes I was also one of them!! I didn’t want to see the truth because it was hard!

 I know it is hard to admit to oneself that there is a problem, and this is the hardest hardest step to take!!!  Being honest with yourself that you are unhealthy and overweight and you want to make that change  happen is the first step to change! You are not alone! There are those out there that want to help and yes I am one of them!

Now as a coach I want to personally help and Mentor anyone who was wanting to do this! Who is Ready!! Who is tired of trying fads that don’t work!!

I am not a fitness professional I am not a nutritionist what I am is a mom with a real life and a real family with real experiences on making these changes for myself!

MY WHY MY HOPE!

A WAHM voice!!
WAIT Stop scrolling, please take a minute and read this!

This boy is my why for everything that I do!! He is also my hope!!
You see one of the reasons I am so passionate about Beachbody, being a coach, getting healthy, and the life style that goes with it is to bring hope to other families with special needs.
The statistics and evidence is clear and shows that families with someone in the home with a disability are more likely to live in poverty! There are a lot of factors that go into this from caregivers employment to increase in expenses needed to care for the individual.
Statistics and evidence also shows that children living in poverty are more likely to develop disabilities. There are also many factors in this from nutrition to health care.
I searched a long time for data and research on this and I found a one fantastic comprehensive report that tells all!! It is worth looking at!
👉 https://www.ucl.ac.uk/…/WP25_Childhood_Disability_and_Pover…

My heart is full and I hope that our family can be an inspiration to others!! Life does not have to be unhealthy! You don’t have to live in poverty just because you have a loved one with a disability!
Is it easy??? Of course not, but nothing in life is easy!! I would rather work hard at trying to build a business from home, work hard at living a healthier lifestyle, then work hard worrying about how I am going to pay my bills!!

For many of us that have these precious angels we spend so much time away from them just to provide for them!! I know I did it for over 10 years!
💚I have hope and I believe with all my heart that change can happen!!
💚I have hope that we will flood the Network marketing area with special needs families and caregivers!
💚 I have hope in my heart that caregivers will hear my story and begin to live a healthier life so they can be the best for their loved one!
💚I have hope that my son will learn from my passion and one day be able to have his own business so that he can care for himself! ( also a healthier life)
💚I believe that if just paying it forward gives just one family hope to a better life then it is worth it.

I want to be home with my son!
I have to be home with my son!!
My son has a lot of needs! My son deserves the best!! downsyndrome parents
My son deserves to have me around for a long time!!
Your Loved One Does to!!
So YES HE IS MY WHY, MY HOPE for a better tomorrow!!!
