I try to be transparent in my life as much as possible, especially on here. To be honest, I was nervous to share this with you because I didn’t want anyone to go running from here if you saw Shakeology. I feel like there are two main camps of people: those who love Shakeology and those who hate it and think it’s ridiculous. Is there a third camp that feels like it’s great, but since it’s really expensive it’s a sometimes product?
I have been struggling with prepping food. I know it’s completely normal after having a baby (or two) that some things fall by the waste side. For me, it’s prepping food. You can always, always find good food in my house. I don’t buy junk and we don’t get take out. I’m good about making muffins or breakfast cookies for Danny and Olivia, but for me it’s harder. (Side note: I have to really, really limit foods like banana, avocado, walnuts and eggs because of my eczema and allergies and it’s easier to just make muffins & cookies with those foods, which is why I say I make them for Dan & Liv.)
Breakfast is a struggle for me because of my allergies. I can’t just make eggs, or have yogurt with granola. I have been having chia pudding every single day for forever..and I was SO FREAKIN SICK OF IT.
I saw Amanda‘s post about Shakeology a couple of months ago and I was interested in it, but I wasn’t yet completely sick of chia pudding, so I kept eating it. Then a few things fell into place, I was SICK of chia pudding, I started to think about life after Body Shred and I saw that Amanda has a sneak peek of Fit Team Inspire on Facebook. It felt like a few things were aligning, so I talked to Amanda to see what she thought. I really trust her because she is the least spammy Beach Body coach I’ve ever followed. You barely even know she is one.
I talked to her about how I was so concerned it would be like “selling out” and how I thought people would run away from me. She is such a good business mentor and she heard what I was saying and just asked if she thought it would add value to the clients I have…and the answer was yes.
So back to the Shakeology. I’ve only been drinking it for 4 days. I can’t speak to the long term effects of it, but I can tell you it tastes great, doesn’t have an aftertaste and keeps me full for about 3 hours. I also can tell you that I don’t feel like I need as much coffee as I usually drink. The nutrients and quality of ingredients are absolutely there. But let’s be real…the price. It’s pricey, like very pricey. It’s a great deal to buy a challenge pack (workout program and shakeology), but besides that, I don’t know yet.
What does it mean for this blog?
Nothing. I’m NOT going to make this an infomercial and or a spam site. I may post about a workout I’ve tried through Beach Body, but that’s no different than me posted about Body Shred or any other workout program I’ve reviewed. I bought the 21 day Fix Extreme so I’ll be posting about that when I complete Body Shred.
I don’t want you to ever feel like I’m pushing anything on you. I only share my experiences and what I believe in, so you can expect that. If you have any questions or want to reach about this, PLEASE, as always, contact me and I would love to talk to you, but I’m not going to start sending emails and facebook messages convincing you to buy Shakeology/21 day fix/become a coach.
Why do I think Beachbody is valuable to my health coaching clients? Well, honestly, you know I’m a huge fan of working out at home. I have been since I became a mom. Through Beachbody I can offer the workout programs and support, which are no doubt, amazing. And, in the interest of also being honest, if I can add another stream of income and add to supporting my family…then that is great too.
So that’s where I stand. I’m drinking Shakeology for 30 days to see what kinds of results and effects it has on me. I’ll be sharing my honest, honest feelings. It’s a great way for me to throw together a FAST breakfast and not have to think about it. Here is my link to shop Beach Body and Shakeology if you want to take a look. If you want to join me in drinking the Shakeology for 30 days, then email me (if you buy a challenge pack the price is reasonable and this month’s special is Piyo)!
I would love to hear your what you think.
Do you love the Beachbody workouts, but hate Shakeology? Are you totally on board? Do you hate it all?
More places to find me. I would love to connect with you!
