Happy Hump Day y’all! I mentioned in my previous post that a big part of why I started down this path to better health and wellness was because of how crummy I was feeling each day. I would wake up tired, struggle through the day and eventually end up back in bed at night not really sleeping. I never woke up and felt like “hey, I got a good nights sleep and am ready for the day”. It was more like, “ugh, how can it be morning already and why does my head hurt so much?”. Over the last year, I progressively felt worse and worse to the point I was constantly at the doctors with headaches and a general feeling of BLAH!! I couldn’t get any answers as to what was going on because I wasn’t really sick I just wasn’t taking care of myself (a realization it took me months to come to).
After a little over ten years of being on a gluten-free diet I had resorted to just eating whatever I could find that would fill me up enough that I could make it through the day. I no longer enjoyed food or really cared about what I was eating and I certainly wasn’t paying attention to whether I was feeding my body anything of substance. Basically, I just ate because I had to in order to survive another day. After pretty much hitting my lowest point in terms of energy levels and overall feeling of health and well-being Shakeology came into my life. For whatever reason I remember the exact day, February 9th of this year, when my co-worker brought in some packets of Shakeology for me to try. I had been telling her about how crappy I had been feeling and she told me she had turned to these shakes because she had been feeling very similar to me. I was immediately skeptical because well that’s just my nature, but honestly figured I had nothing to lose. I examined the ingredients, found the shakes were all natural and there wasn’t anything in them I was allergic to….yay! I made my first shake the next day and my life changed right then and there. I am writing this blog because I know there are a lot of other people out there struggling, whether it be with food allergies like me or just having a hard time eating the things our bodies needs. I sincerely believe in this product for no other reason then it genuinely worked for me!
Over the last three months, my energy level has sky rocketed, I have lost the ten pounds I gained over the last year and I wake up each day now feeling rested and completely rejuvenated. My headaches are all but gone and I haven’t had any problems with my seasonal allergies at all like I had in the past. I am not saying this will work for everyone, but adding these shakes to my diet has been a lifesaver for me personally. They are full of the nutrition I was clearly missing as a person who has limited options when it comes to eating quality food. It is also a simple, quick option for me to grab on the way out of the house to the office.
Again, this is only one piece of my fitness journey that I started on back in February, but it’s a major one and also probably the one that facilitated most of the major changes that have followed. A little more on the shakes themselves….and a link to where you can find more info and how to order:
