So I’ve been drinking Vegan Tropical Strawberry Shakeology for a week now. Here are some of the things I’ve noticed.
* Increased energy
I am able to get SO much more done during the day now, it used to be I would only be able to do a workout and maybe sew a few toys, now I can do my workout, sew toys, paint paintings, keep the house clean and still have energy left for lots more! I’m loving this!
* Decreased cravings for sweets!
* Able to eat smaller meals and still feel satisfied!
(Did not expect this at all, I had 1400 calories today and I feel SO full.)
* Able to do more when I workout.
Before I always felt sluggish and sore all the time, before my workouts, during my workouts, after my workouts… now I just feel sore AFTER. And when I workout I actually FEEL like doing them!
* Able to workout and eat healthy for the first time ever!
I’ve NEVER once been able to eat right and exercise at the same time, I would always get sooo hungry after working out and just eat and eat and eat and then stay the same weight. For the first time ever I am eating healthy foods while I workout because Shakeology satisfies my sweet tooth! I drink mine mid-day before I workout and it keeps the sweet cravings away + gives me the energy I need to workout without that heavy feeling a meal gives me.
* I’m saving money on my grocery bill! Don’t believe me? Let’s break this down.
On a weekly basis I was buying 1 bag of cookies $3, 3-5 Bolthouse Fruit Smoothies $4 a pop, Raisins $3, Candy bars at the checkout lane, maybe 2 a week $2, Coconut Milk “Ice Cream” $5 That was $30 a week on snacks! (Yes I know I ate a lot of snack foods, but like I said I was so hungry from working out I just ravished all food in sight)
So that’s $120 a month and doesn’t include me going out with friends and grabbing a bite to eat at a pretzel place or something similar at the mall. With my coaching discount I spend $90 a month on shakeology so I’m actually SAVING $30 a month… I can buy new clothes with that, especially helpful since I’m shrinking again!
(By the way that was $120 dollars on snacks JUST FOR ME, I’m not including any of the snacks I was buying for my husband)
I know Shakeology seems expensive if you’re just tacking it on top of your grocery bill, I thought that too, I seriously never thought I’d be saving money.
*yes I know that not everyone spends that much money on their snacks a month, it’s just MY personal experience with Shakeology. ;)
