Some Motivation makes no sense

Posted on

I came across this motivational picture this morning and it really cracked me up!


The first things that came to mind for me were dentists, sharks, tidal waves and tornadoes.  Really?  These things could make me happiest?  It think not!

However…then I remembered something pretty exciting from my day yesterday.  I had a very special engagement to attend (I will blog on this later!) and all my jeans were in the hamper.  I have two closets: one for the clothes I used to be able to wear and one for the clothes I am wearing now or those that run a little bigger.  I am still on this journey to lose unhealthy fat and I have not reached my goal yet, but I am definitely making progress!  I wondered about the ONE pair of jeans I knew I could not even button and thought may be I could wear a big sweater to hide beneath if ONLY I could get them past my thighs.  I was afraid to even try, but I did.  And guess what!  “Sometimes the things that you are most afraid are the very things that make you the happiest!”  Not only did these particular jeans fit, I had to wear a belt with them!

I contribute this happy jean moment (and day!) to implementing Shakeology into my daily regime.  I feel better, I have more energy, I feel fuller and satisfied after my shake, and my cravings for things like chips, dips, salty foods and certain sweets have disappeared.

Some motivation makes no sense, but if you think about it, usually such truths make all the sense in the world!

Keep Choosing Consistency and think about adding some Shakeology to your diet…you will be delighted and surprised when you can get into your old jeans too!


What is Shakeology all about? Healthy Results!

Posted on Updated on

Today I have had many people ask me what exactly is this Shakeology thing all about.  This just delights and excites me!  Why? Because truly I am the product of the product.  I am a natural hard-core skeptic turned devoted believer!

I think I mentioned before, I have rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and put too many hours into my work (required!) as a medical transcriptionist.  Additionally, I am finishing my BA degree online.  I have neglected my overall health for quite awhile and then added in too much wine (on a daily basis!), not enough exercise (or none at all for days at a time!) and just lazy, unhealthy eating habits.  When I was introduced to Shakeology I felt physically and emotionally awful, basically defeated and feeling stuck in a rut, and was willing to give it a try.  I will forever be thankful that I did!  I actually find that I worry about future provisions of all these super foods and ingredients that go into making my most important meal of the day with all the global changes happening around our planet.  Anyway…that is a whole other subject to blog about later!

Within the first week of being on Shakeology I noticed drastic changes and differences in my health and how I felt.  I knew I was not imagining this either!  The daily aching, deep and sharp pain I had in my hips was gone, for which I have had multiple cortisone shots over the years to help alleviate this pain.  My feet and my ankles were hurting so much I was reducing my walking, which I love to do with my dog.  Also, the swelling was causing me problems in my lower legs.  This too has completely been obliterated.  Lastly, my shoulders.  I have had shots in my shoulders too, and now I have absolutely no pain.  NONE!  I have had so much energy I no longer feel the need for a nap each afternoon.  I sleep deeper at night and feel refreshed and rejuvenated when I wake in the mornings.  Another wonderful benefit: because my pain is gone, I am exercising more!  I give all my thanks to Shakeology to start this chain reaction in my life.  Believe me, I have tried many, many different products for losing weight, reducing cravings and having extra energy with zero, let me say that again, ZERO results and ZERO benefits.

Because of so many incredibly positive effects Shakeology has given to my life, I want to shout to the world and inspire others.  I wish every person on this planet could be on Shakeology.  I wish it for you, too.  My hearts desire is to be an example, to inspire, to help YOU on your journey for taking care of yourself.

Here are a few results I am sharing from others from yesterday and today:

“Since I have been using Shakeology daily, my digestive issues have disappeared, my overall psyche feels so right on and I have a ton of energy.” -Lee W. (Ventura, CA)

“I will admit, I did take a break from Shakeology for reasons that I just can’t even justify, because looking back, it was not a smart choice at all!  I felt like I had no energy, was craving junk, gaining weight and was just not happy.  Now I know that this isn’t all because I stopped drinking Shakeology, but there is a trickle effect that really does boil down to that one change I made.” -Shannon W.  (Brampton, Canada)

Take a few minutes and quench your curiosity by watching the video below.  If you want more information, please send me an e-mail at:  However, if you just want to sample the product and be a product yourself, please go to and look at all the flavors Shakeology comes in.  My favorite is the strawberry, but most people say the chocolate just rocks!  No matter, there is a 30-day money back guarantee and free shipping on home direct orders.  What do you have to lose?  The better question is what do you have to gain?

Thanks so much for listening to my excitement and I am really wishing you all good health!
