I was never one for trying those hyped up diets you see advertised on the infomercials on tv or the weight loss supplements to lose weight. I dislike taking any type of pills. And I was never one to always eat breakfast in the morning because I was either in a hurry or simply not hungry. As far as breakfast was concerned, I knew that was the most important meal of the day but I still didn’t eat it as regularly as I should have. My good friend Stacy, told me about Shakeology in the beginning of our switch to eating clean but I had put it off because my husband said it was a waste of our money and it was probably the same as the shakes that GNC had to offer. I got on the website to research and read all about it and became really interested in it. It kept saying it was equivalent to eating 6 salads. I kept telling my husband, “It’s like eating 6 salads!” “It not only helps repair your muscles and improves your mood and reduces cravings but it tastes great too. It is like drinking a milkshake or smoothie!”
After much procrastination, at the end of the month, I decided that I was going to sell some items on eBay to buy a months supply of Shakeology, since my husband didn’t want me spending our earned money from the store and we had to pay bills! It was around $130 but I joined as a coach, and signed up for HD (Home Direct Monthly) and got 25% off and it only costs me 97.46 a month. I still had to pay for tax and shipping but I also ordered my first workout program to go along with it…21 Day Fix. What was even better is that there was also a 30 day bottom of the bag guarantee that said I could cancel it at any time during the month.
I ordered the vanilla Shakeology and made my first shake with half a banana, a teaspoon of all natural peanut butter, unsweetened almond milk and a scoop of vanilla Shakeology with ice and blended in a blender. IT WAS AMAZING! It truly was like drinking a vanilla milkshake. No protein powder taste, it was GOOD! I started the morning off with a big glass of warm lemon water prior to drinking my Shakeology and I was full for at least 3- 3 1/2 hours. I had a ton of energy to complete my workout and keep up with running the kids to school and having the energy to start my day at the store! I have been switching off drinking it for breakfast or lunch every day and in a week I dropped another 2 pounds! Woot Woot!
I wasn’t even the type of person to believe drinking my meals would keep me from being hungry an hour or so later but this is yummy and filling too! As a busy parent this is an easy way for me to grab a healthy meal in the morning and jump in the car and head the kids off to school and not worry about what I am going to eat. I don’t want to eat that greasy fast food that just sits in your stomach and weighs you down, when I have a yummy milkshake in my hand.
I’ve been drinking the Shakeology since the beginning of September and love it! The hubby started off sharing a bag with me and found he enjoys it to, so we signed him up as a coach to get the discount and he ordered Strawberry the first time around. This month we’re trying out the chocolate and it’s absolutely delicious! I was never a huge fan of chocolate and very picky about the types of chocolate I eat, but the chocolate Shakeology tastes like chocolate milk. And that I like!
