What is Shakeology

IMG_5738Oh man.  Where do I even begin on this one?  Simply put, Shakeology is a nutritionally dense, meal replacement shake.  It is NOT a protein shake.  It is all natural (yeah, I mean absolutely no artificial ingredients or flavors) and it has a pretty awesome superfood blend.  It is packed with pre and pro biotics and it is absolutely yummy.

Shakeology is also clinically proven to help you lose weight, lower cholesterol and lower blood sugar.  I could go on and on about the benefits and how Shakeology helps keep me full and reduces my own crazy cravings–or how it prevented me from needing to go on medication in my early 20’s for high cholesterol.

Here are some sources of info for you to check out on your own:

I get this question A LOT! How does Shakeology compare to…..and my answer is–it really doesn’t!  Shakeology is in a league of it’s own.  Here’s the proof:


It even has a Bottom of the Bag Guarantee…

There isn’t really anything else out there like Shakeology. If you still have questions:

So Thankful

We have a backyard. To many of you that just seems like a given. Where I grew up (in upstate NY) it WAS a given. I have memories of playing in my backyard–oh wait–we had front and side yards, too!!

So when I moved to Florida it was a bit of a shock. South Florida is beautiful. I found myself staring at palm trees for hours when I first came down. But the houses can be close and the yards can be small.

The cost of living is definitely a jump from what I was used to and it’s crazy to compare here to there–especially when Dave and I bought our first townhome. We loved it. It was perfect for us. But the pricetag made our hearts skip a beat.

Then came Sienna. And we still loved it. Then came all her STUFF. Then came Rocco. And you know what? We still loved our townhome. It was where we made memories…where we started our family.

But we didn’t have a yard.

Dave and I would talk about how we wanted a place to kick around the ball, play catch, blow bubbles, and just chase the kids.

And so we started looking at new homes.

It didn’t take us very long to decide where we wanted to be. We took one look at the backyard and we were certain this home would be a NEW perfect for us.

As I walked around the grass and checked out our baby palm trees, I saw us here. I saw us blowing bubbles and chasing the kids. I saw us having friends over for cookouts. I saw us building a pool (and my outdoor kitchen!) someday.

Our kitchen table overlooks the sliding glass doors. At dinner, I watch as the sun sets and paints the most beautiful colors across the sky.

And I give thanks…to one…to many…because we have a backyard.

Fit and Fab with the Fix

The Fit & Fab with the Fix challenge begins on Monday, February 16th. I kickstarted my post-baby #2 fitness journey with the 21 Day Fix and a year later I am still using it! It took me 21 days to learn what a portion of rice and oats looks like. It took me 21 days to learn that my body works so much better when I eat every few hours. It took me 21 days to learn these things that make me healthier, happier, and a better version of myself.
