Question of the day.... Why do I drink my amazing super food shake EVERY DAY?
Well, I barely know where to begin. There are so many things it has done for me. Here are just a few....
1) Quick fast convenient healthy breakfast! I am a mom of two, work both full time, run a business and volunteeer. So to say the least, I am busy busy. Shakeology has given me an easy way to start my day off right. I am always up for something to make life a little easier.
2) Digestion! We will just get this one out of the way... Keeps me regular. Enough said right?! I could go on, but I'm sure you don't need the details!
3) Energy! I was always tired before drinking Shakeology. Don't get me wrong, I'm not the energizer bunny or anything, but I feel so energized after having a shake! It is a perfect pick me up in the morning and helps me to keep going all day without needing copious amounts of caffeine to keep me awake.
4) Reduced Cravings!! I still have junk sometimes, I eat cookies, I have dessert, I eat ice cream (etc. etc.) but the difference is that I have it because I WANT to, I CHOOSE to, I don't CRAVE it. I don't feel I NEED to. And there are many times when someone brings treats to the office and I don't have any, and it's not a matter of self-control, I just don't really want it, I don't crave it. That's amazing to me. And sometimes, if I know there will be temptations, if I'm going to a birthday party where there will be lots of cake and other junk, I save my shake for the afternoon and make a salted caramel chocolate shake and have that instead of the cake (ok maybe I still have a small piece).
Now I just want to add here that at first the price of Shakeology completely freaked me out . I could barely wrap my head around spending $156/month (plus tax of course) on a shake. Once I stopped looking at it as a shake, but as a meal and as giving my body everything it needs (plus replacing all the vitamins and supplements I used to take). And one that did all of the above (and more) for me, then it made complete sense. A shake is just a little over $6/day (incl shipping and tax) not much more than I used to spend every day on a hot chocolate/tea and a muffin!! Definitely worth every penny I spend.
