A breakfast that will change your life!

Hey guys!  I have been a crazy lady this last week between our kiddos, all of their activities and my sister Jenna and her schedule!   I have been thinking about this post for a while now.  I have to share with you about my secret weapon!  Many of you know that I drink shakeology everyday.  You may not know how it has changed my life and why I love it! 

First off I will tell you that I was never looking for a weight loss or protein shake(both of which shakeology is not)!  I was looking to get into great shape after baby number 3, and lose the major baby weight that I had:)  I was thinking of workouts and cleaning up my eating a bit! I decided to do a 10 day challenge...it included shakeology...I had no clue what it was and actually didn't think too much about it.  In those 10 days I drank my shakes everyday, tried different flavors, and I ended up losing 8 pounds.  I know that was a combo of everything that I was doing.  I have tried herbalife before...I always felt hungry and it really did nothing for me.  So my opinion on shakes was that they were just a way to stay full and not eat.  My very first shakeology that I drank I truly felt like my body was getting what it needed.  It was kind of weird.  I just felt really good, and like I just ate a nutritious, filling meal.  My energy(and keep in mind I had a new born) was amazing!  My system was so regular...and felt like it was running like it should!  I didn't have any bloating, and my stomach felt better than it had in a very long time!  Needless to say I was hooked.  I have been drinking them almost everyday for a year!  I very rarely miss a day....and when I do, I can tell a difference!  I love how easy it is to throw one together for breakfast and head out the door to take kiddos to school.  Its my fast food!  Jake started stealing my shakeology, so I ordered him his own bag for the month and he drinks them everyday as well, he was skeptical in the beginning for sure, but he is all about it now.  I recently started giving my kids 1/3 of a scoop everyday, they love them, I mean what kid doesn't love a chocolate shake, and I know that they are getting everything they need!  I believe in them so much because I know from my experience and how I feel, how good they are for you.  I haven't been sick in a very long time!  We don't take vitamins anymore, because everything we need is in our breakfast:)  I have also seen so many people start drinking shakeology and it make a huge difference in their health, cholesterol lowered, diabetes in control, stomach issues gone!  I have been asked if they are for weight loss, the answer is no...they are for everyone....they do get your body running how it should and for some the byproduct of that is weight loss.  I'm getting my grandparents on shakeology this week, this can replace ensure for them and is even better for them.  Its so exciting to have something that can help so many people, I do believe that everyone needs this and I'm on a mission to help as many people with shakeology as I can. 

I recently started studying up on Shakeology more than I ever have....before I just knew I loved them...but it goes beyond just being a great breakfast, this can change peoples lives!  SO here are the ingredients for you, and all of their benefits.
