Shakeology makes the big time!

I was so pleasantly surprised yesterday when I went with Brian to his doctor’s appointment.  I had forgot to take my kindle and I was not looking forward to sitting in the waiting and waiting and waiting room…..

However, much to my surprise the new copy of O magazine was there. Low and behold, an article about Shakeology and Darin Olien.  I read the whole thing ( it is several  pages long) and was fascinated again.

I loved it and stopped on the way home to get my own copy!  Pick one up today as well and let me know if you would like a sample!  This stuff is da bomb!

Order your Shakeology today!  Order on Home direct and get free shipping, a free workout and a free shaker cup the second month.  No contract, you can cancel at any time and there is a 30 day, bottom of the bag, money back guarantee.  What do you have to lose except weight and sluggishness?  Chocolate is my favorite, but greenberry isn’t bad either!!

Then when I got home, look what was waiting for me at the front door……  more excitement. Insanity:  The Asylum.

The new Insanity workout!!  I’m scared……
Yes, it is autographed by Shaun T himself!  I won this for making Success Club with Team Beachbody in Feb!  Go Me!!
I’ll have a more detailed post about the workout and the equipment that comes with it in a while. I’m only on week 3 of my ChaLEAN Extreme and TurboFire rotation.
Discussion:  Do you excite as easily as me?  I love getting things in the mail and finding a nice surprise!!!

Limited time offer!

I am offering a cool deal for you!  If you have been thinking about joining Beachbody as a coach or wanting to get your Shakeology at the coach price now is the time!

I’m not sure if you are aware of it or not, but Beachbody coaches get a 25% discount on ALL products.  So, you get to purchase Shakeology at that discounted price.  IF you order it on home direct, you save shipping costs, get 2 free Shakeology workouts and a free shaker cup the second month!  There are no limits to the benefits of Shakeology and coaching!

Let me share a few of the success stories of my clients:

Dan ( my father ) uses Shakeology for breakfast daily (or atleast most days). After 3 months, he was able to get off all his high blood pressure and cholesterol medications.  Dad didn’t change anything else about his diet, didn’t add in any workouts, just added a shake per day!  AMAZING!

Virginia also had a little high blood pressure, she didn’t take any medication for it yet, but her Dr wanted her to keep an eye on it daily.  She started taking Shakeology (she took 1/2 scoop in the morning and 1/2 scoop in the evening) and after 3 WEEKS, her blood pressure was in the normal range.

Jason wanted to lose a little weight and get healthier, he started on Shakeology, added in a workout regimen and excluded his afternoon snack.  He lost 12 lbs in 1 month. 

I have lost a little weight over the time I have been using Shakeology, but the biggest thing for me is my energy levels.  When I don’t drink my shake (even for just one day), I don’t have as much energy, I don’t feel as “peppy”!!  So, I have that benefit on top of all the health benefits that are included with drinking one shake per day!

I could go on and on with weight loss stories as well as people having so many health benefits, but you get the idea. It does many things for many people!

So, if you have been on the fence, let’s get you started right away.  You can use the coaching account just for the discount or you can work the business and make some extra money!!  Trust me, you will want to tell all your friends about the way you feel!

You can go to my webpage to get started right away or you can email me  and I’ll walk you through the process!

Here are the deets:

1)  Must sign up and place your new HD Shakeology by March 31.  (If you already have a shakeology HD order you will have to cancel it first)

2)  Must be a NEW Coach (can’t have been a coach in the last 6 months)

3)  Must remain a coach for 30 days.

After 30 days, I will reimburse you the $39.95 sign-up fee.  I can mail it to you, pay through paypal or if you are local, I will hand it to you!

Don’t forget:  This is a limited time offer (only through March 31, 2011) and I am offering it to the first 3 (Three) people to sign up!

Do YOU poop out at parties?

Are you a pill taker? I am not!
That is why I drink my Shakeology each and every day.

I want to get all the nutrients, but not have to take a handful of pills.  I don’t take a multi-vitamin on top of my shake, but I do take a few things, things I think EVERY person should take daily! 

Vitamin D –  (I take 4000 mg each day) is absolutely necessary for everyone in my opinion! I don’t think people get enough and you can’t get in the sun to get enough either. 

Reduces your risk of 17 types of cancer
Regulates your immune system
linked to maintaining a healthy body weight
promotes healthy brain function
My personal observation – helps with muscle soreness

Core Omega 3  – Fish Oil.  I love the Beachbody version.  It smells like vanilla. Wish we had smell-o-vision…. No nasty after taste.  I am waiting on my next shipment, I ran completely out!  Brian and I both take it!  This is important for all kinds of reasons: 

Promotes healthy heart function

Promotes healthy blood pressure
Promotes healthy blood viscosity and cardiovascular health
Promotes healthy joints
Promotes healthy immune function
Promotes healthy brain and nerve function
Supports and maintains healthy retina and eye function

If I am feeling a little run down, then I will take the Herbal Immune Boost.  This stuff is GOLDEN! 

It does exactly what it says – boost your immune system.  Good stuff!

Several people think that you don’t have to supplement your diet if you are eating healthy.  I really don’t agree with that.  Our soil is depeleted, the nutrients are not the same.  The food is usually shipped in and will lose it’s potency over time.  I’ve even read that it is better to buy frozen if you are not buying locally.

You have to get a LOT of variety in your diet to get ALL the nutrients you need.  I think if you eat a balanced diet without a lot of processed foods, you can use a multi-vitamin to supplement what you are missing.  It won’t hurt for sure!  Do I think you need to take a handful of pills daily, NO!  Do I think you are getting all your body needs in your diet?  NO!   I think there is a happy medium in there between eating raw fruits and veggies and whole grains, clean proteins and taking a shake a day vs. popping every kind of pill on the market.
