Weight Loss

The new Superfood Formula Shakeology really impresses me. The ingredients speak for themselves. 5 Superfoods were recently added. Moringa, Coconut Flower Nectar, Himalayan salt, Luo Han Guo, and Konjac Fiber.

Moringa: helps the immune system.. has antioxidants, vitamins A and C, amino acids (has 4X more vitamin A than carrots, 2X protein of milk, 3X potassium of bananas and 3X the iron of spinach)
Coconut Flower Nectar: Has protein, vitamin A & C, and minerals. Used as a natural sweetener.
Himalayan Salt: has over 70 trace minerals. Helps to detoxify blood. Google the health benefits of Himalayan salt, you'll be impressed.
Many people are unaware that common table salt contains chemicals and even sugar! Salt is necessary but can be dangerous if taken in this chemical form.
Table salt is composed of 97.5% sodium chloride and 2.5% chemicals like iodine and absorbents, and sugar. Common salt is dried at more than 1,200° Fahrenheit, a process which zaps many of the natural chemical structures.Table and cooking salt found in most homes, restaurants, and processed foods is void of nutritional value, lacking beneficial trace minerals. Processing salt turns it into sodium chloride, an unnatural salt the human body actually sees as a toxic invader! 
Luo Han Guo: Low calorie low glycemic sweetener and an antioxidant. There are other areas where could be useful diabetes management, cough, and regularity.
Konjac Fiber: Benefits: healthy blood sugar, cholesterol control, helps with regularity, and it helps you feel fuller longer. 

These new Superfoods added with the already great ingredients in Shakeology really help to secure it's "Healthiest Meal of the Day" label! Visit my site to learn more. Shakeology has a money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose.

Busy Mom Work Out

Now that the kids are back to school.. it's time for you to get back into shape!! Let me help you. Whether you just want a fitness program or you want to join a Challenge Group for extra support, accountability and friendship.. I have you covered. The fitness programs that Beachbody offers are complete. Offered programs are vast. We have something for everyone. Check out my site to look around at the different programs offered. I am in the first month of P90X and I love it. I have done Les Mills Pump, Insanity and Chalene Extreme. They are all excellent programs. Back when I had time for the gym, I loved the tougher classes. I was a power step girl. Now with Beachbody, I can press play at any time of the day. That is quite convenient with 3 children under the age of 10 and working full time. If you are too busy for the gym and want something just as intense and fun, give it a try.

Here are my Les Mills Results

I love Les Mills Pump! I also drink Shakeology once a day. I would have kept LMP going but I was very excited to start P90X. I lost a total of 13 lbs on LMP, 5 inches off waist, 3 each thigh, 1 each bicep. I'm still working on that baby belly (baby is now 6.5 months old!!).. It gets harder as you get older and it really was never easy for me anyway. I won't give up. I feel tighter, but I have a ways to go. I am currently on week 2 of P90X. I started out thinking I wanted to do the Lean version.. but have since changed over to the Classic. I like it very much. If you want a program that starts out super intense, then P90X is for you! Once you get going with the programs that Beachbody offers, you will see why so many people get hooked on them. I continue to wake up early morning (3am) and get to working out by 4am. It works for me. I get that out of the way then no excuses can creep up. If I have enough motivation to wake up at 3am daily, even today (my day off), why not give it a try!?
