Weigh In and Chocolate Shakeology Review

Sorry I missed you yesterday, apparently I can’t keep my days straight!  For this weeks weigh in I’m also going to share my starting and current measurements.  I’m on Day 19 of the Brazil Butt Lift’s Slim and Lift program.

Day 1 Brazil Butt Lift and Shakeology: 155lbs
Last Week: 149

Today 148, just barely

I will tell you at first I was a little disappointed, because I had been seeing extreme results as far as weight loss.  But, then I remembered I only have 13more lbs to loose and this last bit is going to be the hardest.  I also remembered that I’m going to start seeing definition and tone not just weight loss.

But, here’s what really got me out of my little disappointment!  My measurements!!!!  If you are doing an exercise/weight loss program take your measurements and pictures.  You will be amazed at your transformation even when you don’t see that scale move as much as you want it to.

Starting:                             Current:
Waist 34.5                         Waist 32.75
Hips 40.5                           Hips 38.5
Chest 38.25                      Chest 37
Right Arm 12                   Right Arm 11.25
Left Arm 12                      Left Arm 11.75
Right Thigh 23.5          Right Thigh 22.5
Left Thigh 24.5             Left Thigh 23.5

Just so you don’t have to do the math because I already did, that’s 6.75inches GONE!  1.75 from my WAIST, 2 from my hips and 1 from each thigh.  I’m amazed, I’m literally melting away in only 19days!

Yesterday, I realized I do have a bad eating habit 😦 It was brought my my attention by a great coach on my team who has three kids, one only 4months and looks AMAZING!  When I give Fallyn a snack or at meals I’ll take bites off her plate when she’s done or eat a handful of crackers as I’m giving them to her.  These bites here and there can really add up, thank goodness for the support I get from other Beachbody Coaches!  I am going to STOP that craziness, which will also help me see more of a weight change!

I wanted to tell you about Chocolate Shakeology and the benefits I’m seeing after only 19days.  Ok, so I know you’re biggest quesiton is the TASTE, is it good.  I can answer you honestly and say YES.  I like the taste I look forward to my Shakeology meal.  I played with a few recipes some I like more than others. I am a lover of orange flavored chocolates so my favorite recipe is 5cubes of ice, 1/2c water, 1scoop chocolate shakeology and 1/2cup orange juice.  I feel like I’m induldging in a box of my favorite candy.  And for only 210calories you can’t beach it.

I’m seeing lots of other benefits too already!  Those of you who know me, know I don’t have acne on my face but I do break out all over my arms.  Its starting to clear up!  I’m so excited, I’ve tried body washes and nothing makes them go away.  I noticed this just yesterday and the only thing that has changed is starting shakeology!  Of course I’ve gotten weight loss!  Its a little gross to talk about, but it wouldn’t be a complete review if I didn’t so I am more regular which was a problem for me.

The biggest thing for my though has been the energy, I’ve been struggling with giving up diet sodas because sometimes I’m just tired, I don’t drink coffee so I would grab one when the kids were just wearing me out!  Now, Vince has had diet cokes in the fridge for a couple weeks and I don’t even want them!  I have plenty of energy to get me through the day.  EVEN though I’m waking up at 6am to get my workout in because I didn’t have any other part of the day.

I am extremely happy with Shakeology, its so easy to drink a shake once a day it gives you TONS of nutrition.  The bag comes with a calendar with 30 recipe ideas on it so if you want you can have a different shake everyday!

Committing to Fitness, Achieving your Goals

A few weeks ago I made the decision to start my own fitness business.  I researched the company the products they offered, benefits and history.  Just as I would have had I been accepting a job offer from another company.

When all these things looked amazing, I decided to jump in.  I became an Independent Team Beachbody Coach.  Beachbody is the company that produces at home workouts such as P90x, Insanity, Slim in 6 and Turbo Jam they are also the creaters of the meal replacement shake Shakeology.

I have so many things to tell you that I’m going to have to spread it out over a few posts!  Keep your eyes open for posts with detailed reviews on Shakeology, Brazil Butt Lift and the coaching opportunity.  For now, I’m going to tell you the RESULTS I’ve seen after only 9 days!

When I last posted I was down to 152, after that I had a rough couple weeks some of my motivation waned and I gave myself excuses to not making exercise the a must during my day and taking small bites here and there of foods I shouldn’t have.  My excuses included all the normal, we were visiting with out of town guests, it was my birthday, I have lots of school work….you get the idea.  I went against all my own best advice and gained 3lbs.

So, last Monday there I was with new resolve.  I was committed to my business being a success, of not getting off track again so that I could be there to help others and be apart of working towards Beachbody’s mission to end the trend in obesity.

To mark this date, I’ve decided to start tracking my weight loss from this point. I will still post how much I started at when I first opened this blog because with out support I wouldn’t have gotten to this point.  I wouldn’t have realized how import fitness is if I hadn’t had support.  I have found even more support and motivation in the other Beachbody coaches I work with.  I really can’t say enough wonderful things about this company!

But, let’s get to the results!

Starting Weight:  177
Weight Day 1 of Brazil Butt Lift and Shakeology:  155

TODAY:  149

YES!  That is 6lbs lost in only 9days.  FINALLY, under 150, FINALLY only 15lbs to go!  I can’t tell you how accomplished and even more motivated I am that my dedication and hard work are paying off.

I have been doing the Brazil Butt Lift Slim and Lift program and drinking Shakeology, usually for lunch sometimes for breakfast.   I’ve had tools to find more information, recipes from teambeachbody.com’s VIP club.  Not to mention the motivation and support I get from my coach and all the other coaches on my team!

More to the results this Monday when I measured I had already LOST almost 3inches!  Including 1/2 an inch from my waist, hips AND each thigh!

Because my biggest excuse for not exercising was time, with two children under the age of 2, school work and other errands my days pass pretty quickly and saying you are going to exercise IF you have time just isn’t going to get it done.  I have jumped on the bandwagon of morning exercise and get up at 6am so that I have time to workout, shower and a moment to myself before Fallyn and Dominic wake up.   I am not a morning person but man, this is the best way to do it!  You don’t have to think about exercising all day, you have more energy and your metabolism is revved up!  Not to mention the amazing results I’m getting!!!
