Better Health

It has been a long time since I have experienced any major cravings. Changing my diet around and adding in the important things such as more vegetables has made a significant difference. Adding shakeology as part of my daily routine helps as well. The need to drink coffee is gone which for me is HUGE. I used to drink 8 cups a day, even at night. The importance of a well-balanced diet is good but if you have to eat on the run a COMPLETE meal in a drink is a must if that is your best option/choice. It’s been almost 2yrs since I started drinking shakeology and the only time I complain is when we run out or Ryan hides a stash somewhere. Check out our pages and see what you are missing. Stop popping pills and drink to better health. DSDQ.

I am not one to push products, and I was the first person to say I would put any products in my body that I could not keep up with on a consistent basis.  Well, times have changed, and my mind has too. 

We are an active society, and we are always trying to find way to keep ourselves healthy and active at every turn.  The problem is the more active we become the less likely we are to keep up with our diet.  There are plenty of reasons and choices on every corner to distract us and give us an easy and fast way to our nutrition.

But I ask you is it an easy way or is is it a faster way to more problems? 

If you leave you home and go to any store that sells nutritional products, and there are a lot of them, you will find an abundance of options and all of them will say basically the same thing -  that they are the best or it gives you the most for your money. Really, at some point you have to do was best for you regardless of cost of regardless of what the product/or rep says.  When you are looking for a product, there are a couple things that you have to consider. 

For me the first thing is WHAT is in the product that will benefit me long term and short term. 

Second thing is it all natural?  Is it gluten free? 

Will it help me with energy level (naturally) and truly replace what I may miss in a meal.  I do not and will never advocate skipping meals neither will you ever hear me to suggest that you actually replace a meal with a QUALITY  meal replacement. 

The truth is you should do the best you can to eat a well balanced diet, (fruits, vegetables and complex carbs).  Is it hard or difficult to do, YES, absolutely.  I always say, don't wish it was easy wish you were better.  How, make better choices and commit to those choices.  Remember you have to do whats best for you. 

For me Shakeology is that product hands down.  The benefits are to numerous to list, and that is for a later post.  Lets just say that it has everything you need if you need probiotics (to cleanse you daily) antioxidants (to help fight the harmful illness and diseases in the body) protein and amino (build blocks to help promote muscle growth) to name a few. 

Most of us, myself included, want the cheapest way to end or finish line.  Fast will not last.  The short cut will cost you more in the long run.  Remember the best way to reduce your health care cost to do your research.  Don't go the cheap way go the best way.... Shakeology anyone?

Note to self

I know you.  I know who you are and where you come from.  I know that in order for my future to exceed my expectations I must let go of the things that hold me back and the things that keep me from living up to my potential.  In order for me to defy the odds I must change what I do for me and only me.  I must break free of my depression and say to myself that, "THIS ENDS HERE AND NOW".  Nobody said it would be easy.  Nobody has volunteered to do anything for me.  I am MY shield.  I am MY protector.  Nobody will claim what is mine.  Nobody will hold me back.  If anyone stands in my path I will go through them and not around them.  I will never look back because it will be part of my past.  Instead I will look ahead and be bold, fearless and stronger for those who choose to follow in my footsteps.  Am I perfect, No!  Am I claiming to know everything, No!  Who am I to make such a bold statement and take such a bold stance?  I am the new person I always knew I could be.  The difference between yesterday and today is simple. The reason(s) I am stronger now is obvious.  What is it? I finally stop giving to others and started giving to me.  I finally said, I do matter and I deserve everything I want but now I will earn it and I will own it.  I will be heard and remembered and most importantly, I WANT TO LIVE A GOOD LIFE.  DSDQ!

It won't come to you

The things you want and that are worth having will not come to you.  You have to go get them.  There are times when we get so consumed with making these huge goals and think in the long (which is okay) but we fell to understand that we have to put the work in.  Just because the goal is set or the plan is in place that does not mean that your job/work is done.  You have to work for it.  You have to earn it.  You have to live and breath it daily.  Keep in mind that there will be good days and bad ones.  The good days are easy to get through but don't neglect or forget about the bad days.  Those are the crucial moments when you get "IT".  The message or the one thing that you push you over the hump and get you over the hill.  Don't get complacent and don't be negative.  Being complacent will only give you a false since of security and being negative, we all know how that works.  You will give up or say I can't or even worse I quit.  Remember the house rules, adopt them as your own, Don't Stop Don't Quit.  If its worth having you will go for it because it will not come to you

Blame game

Don't blame someone else for your problems.  FIX them instead.  Playing that blame game will only make you more frustrated. When you point a finger at someone else there is usually three of them pointing back at you...DSDQ
