I have been struggling with losing weight and having the motivation to work out for quite awhile now. Before moving to California almost 3 years ago, I decided I wanted to lose some weight. A few of my friends had been using the prescription diet pill phentermine and had lost tons of weight, so I decided to try it for myself. Let me tell ya, I lost a lot of weight (probably too much). However, in no way was I doing it the healthy way. I was never hungry and had to force myself to eat. I was eating about 400 calories a day, but was working those calories off with cardio exercise. I just kept losing and losing! Sounds great right? Not so much! I was having problems sleeping, my heart rate went up and my blood pressure was really low. My husband finally took the pills and threw them away! After not taking the pill for a few weeks, I was hungry all the time. I have since gained back all the weight I had lost plus some!
I work from home, so it is easy for me to get in a rut and not work out and not eat healthy. If I want a snack, I just go to the kitchen and grab something. I procrastinate on working out and never seem to have the energy that I need to stay motivated. Recently, I have seen a few of my friends talking about BeachBody and Shakeology, so I decided to see what all the hype is about.
I signed up last night to become a BeachBody coach and I ordered my first supply of Shakeology. I am so excited to begin this journey of losing weight, eating healthier and getting in shape. I am really hoping that I can get others to join in on this journey and that I can help people along the way.
The #1 thing I am excited about is Shakeology. Shakeology is a nutritional protein shake that provides a wide spectrum of healthy nutrients in a low-calorie formula. Shakeology can help you lose weight, feel energized, improve digestion and regularity and lower cholesterol. If you are interested in Shakeology, check out my website http://myshakeology.com/esuite/home/LindsayBitzer/ and feel free to ask any questions!
As soon as I receive my first shipment of Shakeology, I am going to begin blogging daily with shake recipes, the workout I did for the day and the foods that I ate. I am basically going to use this as a journal to not only help me stay motivated, but maybe motivate others along the way.
Please let me know if you have any questions or even just any encouraging words. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org! Wish me luck on this journey!
