Shakeology | Break Up

It’s pretty damn official. I’m pretty severely allergic to something in Shakeology. I stopped drinking it for a week and the redness and peeling in my upper lip was getting better. I decided to test it out, so I spent three lovely days enjoying that delicious shake and sure enough, the pain, ichyness, redness and peeling came right back. 

I’m pretty disappointed and very worried about what it is that I’m allergic to now. I also bought a different protein shake from Trader Joes as a replacement to shakeo, but I experienced a much worse reaction with that one. ๐Ÿ˜• 

Time to visit the doctor for an allergy test I guess. Has any one else experienced these types of issues? I had no problems for 3 months… Then it all hit me…

Shakeology, I Just Want You

This past week has been very difficult in terms of eating healthy and staying on track. I’ve had a major reaction to something and I really don’t know what caused it. I don’t know if it was something I ate, something I put on my skin, or just the dry California air.

Iย really don’t want to go into details, as it was completely embarrassing, but I have stopped drinking Shakeology for a full week so far, and I’m really struggling. That Shake was my breakfast and I’ve had nothing to replace it with for a week. I don’t have time to eat at home in the morning and I always just mixed the shake and ran out the door, while enjoying it on my drive into work.

I really hope this isn’t the end for me and Shakeology, as that is the best shake I’ve ever had and it really helps me feel great everyday. I’m really hoping it was something else that caused the reaction.

Anyone else ever experience side effects from Shakeology?

Mind Over Matter | Accountability Group

Back in March I joined my first accountability group and it changed my life. I do not regret the decision I made to join Amy and the Beachbody team. It helped me stay focused on changing my lifestyle and now I’m finally reaching my fitness goals. 

I’m starting my first 21 day accountability group on June 6th and I’m looking for people, who want to make changes to their lifestyle and are looking for some accountability, to join!

Please contact me for more info!

Blue Apron | I’m learning to cook!


I’m loving this Blue Apron service and I can’t talk about it enough! Not only am I saving money, by not wasting food, but I’m also learning how to cook new things I’ve never thought about cooking before in my life. Gone are the days of stressing to find a good recipe on Pinterest before the weekend. Gone are the days of trying to find a store that carries what I need and gone are the days of buying one jar of spice to use a tsp and letting the rest sit in a cabinet for years! ๐Ÿ˜„

The most recent thing I made, that I never thought I would, is a soft boiled egg. Damn was that thing yummy! I’ve never been confident in my cooking abilities in the past, but this service has given me a new found confidence that I wouldn’t trade in for the world. ๐Ÿ’•

Hammer and Chisel | The Master’s Cardio

Okay, so it’s my third Saturday on the Hammer and Chisel program. I decided to switch up the workout and instead of doing another round of Hammer Plyometrics, I did the optional The Master’s Cardio workout.

My first thought when putting the DVD in was… “Wow, only a 16 minute workout. Not to bad.” Well… that 16 minutes was a total killer. Especially since I just got done with an hour spin class at the gym.

I made it through the entire 16 minutes and I’d have to say I’m pretty darn happy where I’m at physically. I was able to finish the time with the 30 burpee’s, without stopping and I added the jump during the last 10. I have NEVER in my life been able to do that many burpee’s in a row! It’s only the third week and I’m so happy I decided to do this program. My life will be forever changed because of this. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Hammer and Chisel | “Damn”

I’m ending my third week of Hammer and Chisel and I have to say… I am so happy I started this program! ๐Ÿ’•

I’m not just saying this… I’m honestly happy I’ve started this 60 day program. I have not weighed myself since I like to measure my fitness on how I feel and how my clothes fit, but for the first time today I looked at my stomach and went “Damn.” haha. It has never been this flat and tone in my entire life!

The program looked very overwhelming in the beginning, but it’s really just pretty awesome. I just purchased heavier weights because my 8 lb dumbells were becoming too easy.

I’m so excited to see what the next few weeks has in store and where I’ll be at the end of the 60 days!
