My Shakeology is here!

by jem614

Ok, I’m kind of cheating on Vega.  Just a little.  Shakeology

The truth is that I’ve heard a lot of great things about Shakeology – the same company that created the Insanity and P90x videos, and have even tried it once at an event I went to with a friend (they also make a vegan chocolate and strawberry shake for those of you Vegans looking for a healthy breakfast or snack).  I liked it and it has some incredible ingredients including maca, flax, chia, etc.

I finally broke down and purchased it but it was kind of expensive- $119 and that’s only if you decide to get the automatic renewal every month (which actually comes with free shipping).  I’m going to try it and see if it works for me.  When you break it down, it’s about $4 a meal.  Consider the fact that I spend that everyday anyway, I’m not going to break the bank but if you’re looking for a way to save money, this isn’t it (unless you replace a lunch or dinner).

I’m looking forward to seeing how I feel after taking this for two months and I’m also including the vegan/vegetarian recipes my new Beachbody coach sent me to lose some weight.  I’ve finally hit my pre-baby weight but let’s face it, I wasn’t at an ideal weight then either.  So many people expect you to be skinny as a vegetarian but that just isn’t true in all cases.  Breads and carbs can totally destroy you even as a vegetarian.

I’ve been on so many weight loss plans that I’m not really expecting to do anything but change my healthy eating habits but I really hope that I’ll be pleasantly surprised by myself and the Shakeology/Insanity workouts.  I’ll let you know if I’ve accomplished anything in 60 days. 😉
