So my boyfriend and I were going to start a cleanse… We both really need it and went grocery shopping Friday night. Saturday was “the day”, we were eating vegetables and some fruit, and water…that’s it…by 3pm I was so angry and starving and he wasn’t doing too well either. We both decided this was far too drastic. WTF were we thinking!!???!!?? We agreed on a more balanced lifestyle and we would continue to do it together.
Moral of the story, if you are changing your eating habits DON’T GO DRASTIC! You will most likely be so miserable that you won’t stick with it. Start small. Cutting out fast food and soda for us is HUGE without much sacrifice! (and think of the $$ we’ll save!) We have 6 kids between us. Switching out wheat bread instead of white, exchange 1 or 2 of the sweet snacks we buy for popcorn, no soda options, more natural juices, more salad, they will eat it! You just have to provide it! Don’t get me wrong, I don’t really have a problem with our kids eating sweets, I’m not that crazy with it. But, the healthy options should out-number the sweet options.
Trust me, our angry and hungry versions of ourselves are no good!
I’ve had lots of moms reach out to me asking about how to get a healthy start to a busy mommas day! My secret….Shakeology! Seriously!! It’s no joke.. I can’t imagine what I would do without it, well I can….I’d either go hungry and gorge at lunch or raid the vending machine!
*Why should I drink shakeology?
*How is it different from other shakes?
*What is in shakeology?
*Is it worth the money?
I was right there with all those questions a year and a half ago when I finally bit the bullet and tried it for the first time as well. I am so grateful that I did!! Another part? I’m so glad I tried more than one flavor, because what I thought I would love (chocolate), I ended up hating and now love a flavor that I NEVER would have guessed (strawberry!)! I’ve done a TON of research on this superfood shake and it meets all of my needs!!
I understand that it’s hard to figure out what’s good and what’s not anymore with how our world is because EVERYTHING you read contradicts itself . Marketing is out to get you, food labels are confusing, and as consumers we are left with a crazy amount of choices. So I’ve decided to run a 6 day group where you get to try it out and see if it’s something you want to invest in as well as answer all of those questions and more in just 6 days.
Our group starts NEXT Monday, April 18th! Interested? Just comment below and I’ll get the details to you!
*You cannot be a coach or working with one to participate*
Alright, here we go! Another new week! Instead of dreading Monday like most do, make a list of some goals that you want to accomplish this week. This gives you something to look forward to, to work towards, to focus on. Make this Monday positive, choose HAPPINESS!
I am about to start an amazing journey and want to bring you along!!
On Monday, Jan 18th I’m starting a free clean eating group for 5 days! My coach is a nutritionist and some of my teammates are jumping into this healthy turn-around to make this new year EPIC!
So! If you’re ready to get some healthy habits started with me let me know! I can bring a few friends into the group so let me know today! Comment below so I can get you more info!
Let’s do this!
**Get out of the way of your Dreams!**
Hang in there and make it a great week!
Hoping everyone has a great week!

Jim Carrey’s Commencement Speech was one of the most interesting and motivating speeches I have ever heard. His speech was so insightful that I hope you will take the 25+ minutes to watch!
Here are some of my favorite points he made:
- Your effect on others is the most valuable currencies
- How will you serve the world?
- “Hope” walks through fire, “Faith” leaps over it!
- You can fail at what you don’t want to do, so why not take a change at what you love?!
- Your need for acceptance can make you invisible to this world!
- Fear will always be a player in your life, you decide how much!
- Beware of the unloved.
- I can not be contained for I am the container!
- Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you!
- Let the universe know what you want, work toward it while letting go of how it will come!
