Best Tasting Shakeology Recipes

I've got to share some of the best tasting shakeology recipes!
Those of you who know me or follow me KNOW that I have a ridiculous sweet tooth. Seriously if I don't have my chocolate fix...HEADS are gonna roll!

 I USED to actually eat a piece of chocolate everyday which is what led me to weight gain. Now I KNOW I wasn't "fat" but I def was chunky! haha I actually searched for some old pre-p90x pics and I found this one from Easter. I still have this jacket and ADORE IT (don't you love great buys like that?!) 
Anywho...I was prob about 129-130lbs here and my FACE looks puffy!! It's hard to find pics of my body because I would always hide behind something (like my cute niece!)
Before Shakeology, P90X, and a healthy lifestyle
If you are like me and NEED a sweet and satisfying snack but you still want to be fit....I've got your back!! I've scoured the internet for amazing recipes and through my P90X journey...I found Shakeology. Now I am SO lazy that I usually mix it in a shaker cup with just water but every now and then Im willing to bust out the Ninja for one of these recipes!

Skinny fat to curvy fit baby! It's all about having fun with it, not taking your fitness too seriously but then also finding healthy alternatives to the things you LOVE.
If you want me to coach you through P90X and/or Shakeology, just make me your coach by going here and signing up and then shoot me an email! 
After! Much happier with my bod!

ok so what is Shakeology?

Shakeology isn't just a meal replacement. It's my chocolate heaven. Basically it's a health shake jam packed with nutrients which fills any nutritional gaps in my diet.  It's not just a protein powder or your daily serving of fruits and veggies. Shakeology is all of that. Convenience baby.


Is Shakeology a Scam?

Every now and then a product pops up that claims to "revolutionize your life". It'll cure all your aches and pains, get you bigger and stronger or smaller and leaner. Many of you are probably wondering if Shakeology is just another scam. 
I'm not going to lie, before I bought this I totally googled "shakeology scam" because let's be real...the internet is not the most trustworthy place. I wanted to know why I couldn't get it at GNC or the health store.
Shakeology is only available for purchase to those living in the United States and Canada and can only be purchased through the Team Beachbody network of coaches (which I am now one of hehe)
I questioned it's benefits, especially when it costs around $120 a bag every month. But after doing some math...a tub of protein powder (taken daily), combined with the cost of one meal out (which we did almost daily) added up to way more than a bag of Shakeology, and that didn't include any of the fruits or veggies. Plus...those meals out were making me chunky monkey.
For the first week, it took me some getting used to drinking a shake...and figuring out how I liked it...but at the end of the first month, I was hooked. The biggest surprise was the taste. It actually tastes amazing! My experience with protein shakes was to just down them immediately! 
After drinking it daily, it took care of my chocolate addiction and I noticed an increase in my energy levels. 
Having something so easy to grab allowed me to really focus on mydiet: whether trying to eat a low calorie diet to lose weight or an increased calorie diet to add bulk, I'm able to focus on just the food we needed, and not worry about missing out on any nutrients.

There was also another huge benefit: weight loss. I was doing P90X and after my first month in...I added Shakeology to my routine. you can see an INSANE difference in my day 30-60 pics! 
Anyway, if you'd like to give it a whirl...I'd appreciate it if you ordered through my site and I'd love to help ya!  Shakeology

Chalene Johnson: Smart Success Seminar

Just got home from Chalene Johnson's Smart Success Seminar and omgosh I have one work for it: AMAZING! or as my Bombshell friends would say...Mind= blown lol
Oh my gawddd it's CHALENE!! 


The girls! my loves!
What is success?
Well I guess it depends on who you ask...according to Google, Success means "The accomplishment of an aim or purpose."

This might seem random, but hang in there I swear I have a point. Some mornings I wake up and think "how did I get this AMAZING beautiful life that is my reality?" I swear it feels like a DREAM sometimes. It's weird to backtrack and look at how far I've come.

College is supposed to be the time you figure out your calling in life and really move towards your goals. It's weird because I've always KNOWN I was going to do something amazing but I could never figure out what exactly...I fell into a job working retail and moved up to management and somewhere along the way...I lost the spark. Don't get me wrong...I worked HARD. And long long hours but the successes felt shallow. I used to think...if I can just survive 40-50 more years of this...I will be able to do what I want to do and not live pretty much paycheck to paycheck. 
At one point, I remember feeling like I was drifting...with no set goals or big ambitions. I'm a girl who runs on BIG dreams and ambitions so I think it made me a little depressed. 
It wasn't until I found Beachbody (more specifically...coaching) that I started to dream again and set some goals. When you know where you want to go, what you want to achieve and put your goals on paper...it feels SO satisfying when you ACHIEVE them!

My first goal as a coach...get my Shakeology paid for...I had to share Shakeology with my friends/family and get 3 of them to love it as much as I do. 

My next goal was to get my car payment covered....from there it grew...get my mortgage covered...and then a BIG GOAL.....gulp....QUIT my "real job" and do beachbody FULL TIME.

Do you ever have a goal that you feel like it takes FOREVER/no time at all to achieve?! haha It's weird because I felt like I waited SO LONG to get there and yet it happened before I knew it. 
TODAY is my ONE YEAR anniversary as a FULL TIME COACH. And in that time, I've been able to help and serve so many more people than I was when I had to juggle it all. 
It's amazing to say that it's been ONE YEAR of owning my schedule, owning my life, owning my agenda and being the deciding factor in MY success! I decide how well I do, how many people I reach, how much time I dedicate to my passion. 
And it feels good!

Chalene Johnson is all about goal setting and reverse engineering it to figure out exactly how to get there. 
I wrote out MY definition of success and what I want out of life so I know how to craft my days to achieve it. 
MY DEFINITION of SUCCESS:  I feel fulfillment everyday. I’m doing what I love. I’m challenging myself and learning new things all of the time. I work with the people I love and care about. I work according to my schedule and when I feel like it. I have total freedom over my schedule. I work from home in my beautiful office where I feel productive and creative. I have my own ‘studio” space and workout space. I date my husband (boyfriend for now hehe). I want a deep connection and support from him and for him. I have inner peace and clarity. I have the money to do the things I love with the people I care about. I have the financial freedom to provide a ridiculously amazing life for my family. Jay pursues his interests and follows his passions along side me. I mentor women and have created incredible leadership in my business so that my presence is not needed for the business to grow at an insane rate. My business thrives with my leaders and I have taught them how to create the same freedom in their lives, the freedom they crave. I wake up every morning with butterflies- excited to take on the day. I have the freedom to honor my priorities. I control my destiny, my schedule, my income and my happiness.


Now that I have a CLEAR vision for the future, I can continue creating it and making it better! I already am my own boss so while I DO control my schedule and the hours I work...my GOAL is to become better at managing my time so that I can help more people and work with the people I truly connect with. My passion is helping other women gain confidence and follow their passions. I love helping them build a successful Beachbody business (and look good doing it hehe)
My mentor from afar is Marie Forleo. She has no clue how much she inspires me! If you haven't checked her out you HAVE to go to http://www.marieforleo.com/ like right now!! 
My mission is to create my website for mini Marie Forleo's like me who want to create a brand, a business and infuse their personality, their passions and a lot of love all rolled into one. "It doesn't take talent or luck to succeed, you just have to DECIDE"
It got me thinking about who I enjoy working with and who starts a business that THRIVES

"I fall in love with people’s passion. the way their eyes light up when they talk about the thing they love & the way they fill with light."

This is who I am looking for...this is the type of person I want on my team:
I know what it takes to succeed in this business and where I am going...I'm looking for the women who want to join me on this journey and achieve THEIR definition of success. 
If you think this list describes you, I would love to hear from you =)
