Did you know we are only 21 days away from the New year? Yep that is just 3 weeks away to #2105 what are your health and fitness goals? Maybe you have big weightloss goals or perhaps you just want a jumpstart into the new year. I am committed to making this year the BEST year. This year I am holding myself accountable and I am hoping to find some others in this community that does too.
I am running a New year fitness and nutrition challenge for those of us that are wanting a healthier lifestyle. January 2nd I am starting with the 3 day refresh, it's basically a healthy three day wake up call for your body! A detox that allows you to eat food and not starve. The average weight loss is 4-7lbs in three days as well as 2-5 inches! And of course it's all natural! You can see more about it here; http://youtu.be/JzGpmybPt38 Then I will be following it up with a 21 day fix program.. that will require 30 minutes of exercise a day.. that is it! I will provide meal plans, shopping lists, and recipes for the 21 days. More about that later...
The 3 Day Refresh Complete Kit includes Shakeology for breakfast which helps improve and support all your body's vital functions, while also helping maximize energy and maintain healthy blood sugar levels (available in your choice of 6 flavors, including vegan options). The kit also includes the vanilla fresh shake that helps curb your hunger with more than 20 grams of protein, 22 essential vitamins and minerals, probiotics for digestive health, also included is the Fiber Sweep which gently and naturally eliminates waste from your digestive system with it's blend of whole ground flax, chia, and psyllium seed husks. As part of a healthy diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, Fiber Sweep can help lower cholesterol, and support healthy blood sugar levels. A program guide is also included that walks you through how this program works, what to expect and how to prepare your shopping list, as well as your body for the 3 Day Refresh. It also contains a menu planner with numerous easy-to-make nutritious meals!
Please email me if you are in so I can get a head count and get this challenge rolling. It takes about 5 business days to receive the refresh kit, so I need to get a final count no later than December 22nd to ensure everyone is ready to go once we start! The cost is $69.99 and is all organic and non-gmo and full of superfoods.
I will be following up this program with a 21 day fix program The #MotherDaughterReset that will now start January 5th with Taylor Ann and I ...lots of sponsors and prizes!! . You can do one or both. I am doing them back to back for the best new year results ever. Looking forward to hearing from you!!!

I was sitting in the dentist chair last night and my dentist was all absorbed in hearing about my cancer battle. I was surprised at how hungry he was to hear my story. Turns out his wife is just this year, a 5 year survivor of breast Cancer. Tears welled up in his eyes as he listened to me speak about the process and how we found out and what the year long battle was like. He then looked at me in the eyes and said:
"Why is it that we as people have to wait for our lives to be at risk before we do something about what we are putting into our bodies?"
He hit the nail on the head. I am sure many of you reading this are just thinking; "well I am fine, I will cross that bridge if I get to it." You will get to it. I promise you. I am just hoping and praying your outcome is as good as mine was. It is rare to live through. Many do, but for the rest of our lives we are "high risk" and we don't have a choice regarding what we put in our bodies after that. We are stuck with high doctor bills and going in for a full work up every 3 months. Being poked and prodded and put in various machines. We are faced every 3 months with our battle and we wait for the phone call that will tell us yay or nay. I hate it.
I agreed with my dentist and we kept on chatting. He is an older wiser man, who was born and raised in the United States, but his family is from Mexico. He spoke of how hard it is for them to find real food in America. He spoke of the processed foods and all the chemicals they learned about during his wife's battle. Again, I agreed with him and proceeded to give him tips on how to avoid produce from U.S.A and Canada. I also started giving him cancer fighting superfood information that he quickly wrote down.
I am one of those people that needs facts. I need to educate myself in order to make proper choices for me and my health. With so many supplements and shakes out there I got overwhelmed and turned off to all things smoothie and supplement for a while. That is until Cancer hit. You get an education, and FAST!
One of my first questions to my doctor, when told about the diet I needed to be on because cancer thrives off of "American Food", was "Why isn't everyone told this? Why is it allowed." The answer was simple. "Freedom." Yep, we are in the land of the free. That means you are free to choose to educate yourself, and you are free not to. The FDA is not approving things they think are great for you. They are simply allowing so many thousands of chemicals in items.... in other words... they have determined what wont kill you now, in that one item. They don't tell you what happens when you continue to eat non-food items day in and day out. Where do those items go? Systs, Tumors, Growths... I have said it all before, but you are still here, so that means you are still interested in learning. That my friend is your first step.
So I set forth to educate myself day in and day out. I spent hundreds of dollars a month buying imported peruvian superfoods, concentrate powders, extracts etc.. It broke the bank, but it was what my body needed. I started to really bounce back and get healthy. Today, one year later I am cancer free.
So what did I learn along the way? I was doing it the hard way. Enter Shakeology. Thanks to some awesome advice from my doctor, who couldn't sell it to me because it is a conflict of interest, but she pointed me to it. You see it has EVERYTHING, and I mean everything and then some, I need to keep my body cancer free and help me shed off all the extra pounds that came with Cancer. For those who have had cancer, they know what I mean. Bloating, water weight, pounds from having to lay around for a year. All of it made me feel awful.
I now feel like it is my job to educate those that have not had the cancer battle, or the education that I have had. So sit back and here is why there is not a single other product on the market that compares.
First of all let's talk about cost. Do you have 2 minutes? Please watch to see how there is over $700 in organic superfoods in ONE bag of Shakeology. Get your Shakeology HERE!
Next, let's break down those ingredients.
Do I have your attention yet? Can I show you how much it is for some of these ingredients? Now remember there are 70 of them?
I personally took those pics with my cell phone at my grocery store this week.
So now you are probably thinking... well what about other shakes?
Take a second to look at this so you can KNOW WHAT IS IN YOUR SHAKE!
A lot of shakes cause more harm than good. Ours is ALLLLL good!
So what about Isogenix? You have heard such great things about it right? Well... let's compare.
The positives of Isagenix is that it contains 23 grams of protein per serving (compared to Shakeology’s18 grams of protein per serving). Isagenix, like Shakeology, also contains many naturally occurring ingredients which set them apart from other meal replacements. However, I have not found other components that set Isagenix apart from Shakeology.
On the negative side, Isagenix contains 1100% more fat than Shakeology (6 grams compared to less than half a gram). It also contains more cholesterol and sodium than is found in Shakeology and contains 240 calories per serving when Shakeology only has 150 calories per serving.
Isagenix lacks to potency of the vitamins and minerals that Shakeology contains. Isagenix has only 40% of the daily recommended allowance of Vitamin C versus 300% inShakeology. It lacks significance of other vitamins contained in every Shakeology drink such as Vitamin B1, B2, and B3. You would actually have to drink 2-4 Isagneix shakes to get the same concentration of vitamins and minerals found in just 1 Shakeology shake.
I do feel that Isagenix is one of the better meal replacement shakes, but it just does not compare to Shakeology. Shakeology is a step above the rest.
The only other shake that even comes close to Shakeology is Vega One.. however close but no cigar. Why? Well let me tell you....
