21 Day Fix | Minus Shakeology

As you all know by now, last week I started another round of the 21 day fix, this time without Shakeology. It’s truly amazing how much energy one shake a day can give you… the 21 day fix is a killer without it. The only reason I stopped drinking Shakeology is because I thought I was having an allergic reaction to it. Turns out… I have no clue what I’m allergic to and I had a reaction to Blistex over the weekend, so I know it’s not shakeology.

The other day I ordered more and I truly can’t wait for it to get here. Without it I’ve struggled with breakfast in the morning, as I have to eat on the go and there’s nothing healthy that I can find to grab and go with. I’ve gotten into my old habit of going to the coffee shop to grab an Ice Maple Oat Scone and a large iced coffee. That habit is defiently not good for the wallet or the waist line. I’ll be back to saving money with shakeology and getting the most nutriuents I can out of one meal, while avoiding the extra carbs.

I can’t wait for my shipment to arrive so I can start making the shakes in the morning and get back to eating healthy and feeling better. 🙂shakeology_logo_low_res

Struggles | You’re not the only one

I have been struggling a lot lately. The allergic reaction I’m having has taken absolutely every ounce of energy out of me. I can’t figure out what’s causing it and the doctors are in no hurry to help.

It’s embarrassing being out in public but yet I have to deal with it on a daily basis.  Soon I’ll be meeting new people in my job, as I take on more responsibilities at work. Don’t get me wrong, I’m VERY happy to be moving on, but my confidence level has been in the dumps lately and I’d rather just hide until the problem is fixed. 

On a positive note, I may not be allergic to Shakeology but rather the coconut milk I used to make it. 😕

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. 😕 

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.

I 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?

Chisel Endurance | Hammer and Chisel

Today, I struggled to get out of bed. I wanted nothing more than to sleep for another few hours, but I’m so glad I pushed myself to get up. I was up early and at Spinning class by 9:15 and I came home and immediantly did my first round of Chisel Endurance. Boy… was it tough to do after spinning but I loved every minute of it. It’s the best workout I’ve come accross so far in the Hammer and Chisel program. It’s taken while, but I’m learning how to motifiy the workouts as I don’t have a workout bench or a pull up bar.

I’m glad I pushed myself to work out this morning. You’ll never regret a workout, but you’ll always regret not pushing yourself to reach your full potentional. 😄


I finished my hour and a half workout with a delicious cherry vanilla shakeology shake. It was so yummy and also the healthiest meal of the day! ☺️
