My Shakeology Experience

Shakeology has come a long way!   I first tried Shakeology in 2011, I’m sad to say I did not like it much back then, so I discontinued my home direct shipment.  This year, I decided to give Shakeology another chance and to my surprise I like it and it tastes great.  Today, I drink either strawberry, chocolate, or vegan tropical strawberry Shakeology daily and enjoy it very much.   I also decided to become a coach at the same time to get the 25% discount on products (well worth it!).  I made my first shake with chocolate Shakelogy, 1 cup of water and ½ cup of raspberries and I continue to improve my mixing technique.  I personally prefer my Shakelogy to be a little thin than thick in consistency, but that is all up to individual taste.  

What is Shakeology?

Shakeology is a nutritional protein shake that provides a wide spectrum of healthy nutrients in a low-calorie formula.  A person can use it as a meal replacement for weight loss or as a way to receive all of the daily suggested nutrients.

What’s in it?

Shakeology has over 70 ultra-quality ingredients per serving and delivers nearly all the nutrients you need to maintain a daily healthy diet, it includes:
  • Protein and Amino Acids which helps build lean muscle and reduce cravings and promote healthy hair, skin and nails.
  • Antioxidants and super fruits which help fight free radical damage and help support a healthy immune system.
  • Phytonutrients and Super-Greens which help support health and vitality
  • Adaptogen Herbs which help the body adapt and respond to the effects of stress
  • Prebiotics and Probiotics which help support regularity and healthy digestion
  • Digestive Enzymes which help nutrient absorption

Why Shakeology?

Shakeology gives me a great energy boost and some days it is difficult for me as a busy working mom to get all of the required fruit and vegetables servings in, but with Shakeology I am able to get all nutrients required to efficiently run my body without crashing.

How to use Shakeology?

Mix 1 scoop or 1 packet of Shakeology with at least 10 oz of water.  To make it more filling, blend Shakeology with ice and/or nonfat, almond, rice or soy milk.  Like I said before, I like my Shakeology not too thick, so I always add 10 ounces or more of water or almond milk.

About me

Welcome to my blog!  My name is Sabrina Tutt.  I am 38 years old and mother of 2 beautiful children.  I work full time.  This year I have renewed my fitness journey.  I have always enjoyed fitness but I must admit I have let life and “ME” get in the way.  When I was single and younger, I went to the gym regularly.  However, when I got married to my wonderful husband 10 years ago, my workouts slowed down tremendously.  When I had my first child, 8 years ago, I lost some weight, but I was never able to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight.  Then when I was expecting my second child, I miscarried due to hormones imbalance.  I was depressed and food was my way of dealing with the miscarriage.   However, I was blessed with another pregnancy and my baby girl was born in 2010.  Again, I tried to lose the weight, but was not successful.  I have been on many diets, but never stick to them.  Life stressors always took over. 
In 2013, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, which can cause weight gain and hair loss, but I did nothing to change my eating habits nor did I add exercise to my schedule.  Fast forward to 2015, my husband and I were on a shopping trip at the Premium outlets in Dawsonville, GA.  I was trying on clothes, but nothing looked or fit right and  I needed to go up to a size 14.   From that moment, I said this is it!   I must make a change to improve my health. 

I decide to purchase P90X3, I am enjoying the workouts and nutrition plans.  I drink Shakeology daily and I can see the improvement in my energy and definitely tell when I don’t drink it.

Check back on my progress.  My goal is to reach my fitness goal and help others reach theirs as well .

All you have to do is say, YES!

Kitchen Makeover

If you look into your pantry or fridge what do you see?  Potato Chips? Cookies? Oatmeal pies?  Ice Cream?

If the food is there, you will eat it.  Some days you may not fall to the temptation, but other days, you might eat an entire bag of Cheetos. When trying to make a lifestyle change with food, you can’t keep bad foods in the house and expect to not eat it per Dr. Oz. 

So, let’s look at reorganizing your kitchen for weight loss success. 

My suggestion is to start in the pantry and fridge.  Go through and dump or donate any items that are not consistent with clean eating.  “Biology will always trump willpower, so you want to make sure you don’t set yourself up to fail,” says Dr. Oz. “In my home, we go by the 80/20 Rule. Eighty percent of what’s in the refrigerator and pantry are good wholesome foods, and 20 percent are treats that my family and I eat once in a while.”  Now is the perfect time to throw out any expired food and clean the pantry and fridge as well to make room for the fresh stuff.  By removing any food that is a temptation will only help you on your weight loss journey. 

Examples of food to DUMP:
  • Fried chicken
  • Fried fish
  • Pulled pork
  • Butter
  • Margarine
  • Whole milk
  • Any vegetables that are fried, breaded, or covered in cheese
  • White bread, rice and pastas made with white flour, and sugar-coated cereals. 
  • Chips, crackers, pretzels, cookies, pastries, and cakes
  • Soda
  • Fruit drinks that are not 100-percent juice
  • Diet drinks
  • Most commercially-made frozen family style dinners, pizzas, desserts and snacks

STOCK up on the following:
  • Skinless chicken breast
  • Lean ground turkey
  • Fish or shellfish
  • Grass fed beef
  • Olive oil or canola oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Any fresh or frozen fruit and vegetables
  • Brown rice,
  • Steel cut oats
  • Dark Chocolate or mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Walnuts and almonds
  • Naturally flavored water
  • Sparkling water
  • Coffee and tea
  • Sea salt
  • Pepper
  • Fresh garlic
  • Other low-sodium seasoning

A few other suggestions:
  • Stock up on small plastic food bags, snack containers, and clear plastic fruit bowls for display.
  • Arrange prep tools in an easy to reach place. The fewer steps, the better!
  • Divide snacks into individual servings and arrange in the front and center of the pantry!
Also, look at the placement of food in the fridge, we tend to gravitate to the food that is easy to access and takes the least amount of time to prepare.  A lot of the time the healthy food, like fruit and vegetables are place in the bottom drawer, out of sight and out of mind.  So I want you to instead place the berries and raw vegetables at eye level.    Apply the same concept to the pantry, place healthy food at eye and chest level. 

Then try the “Replace this with that” approach – ask yourself if you are willing to try a healthier alternative.  Use Agave Nectar in place of sugar.  How about substituting sour cream with greek yogurt?

Making over your kitchen is a quick and easy step towards making a healthy lifestyle change.

Don’t hesitate to message me for additional information and tips on helping you with your own kitchen makeover!!!

Have a great day!!
