WEEKEND CHALLENGE- Think Before you Eat!

It's time for the WEEKEND CHALLENGE! Every week we post a challenge for the weekend!

Our challenge for this weekend is to think before you eat! This sounds simple, but this will be tough since it's a holiday weekend!

So this weekend when you are out partying with your family and friends, think about what you are eating before you eat it. This will stop you from eating too many unhealthy things!

Most people say, "Oh it's the weekend, I don't need to eat healthy." or "It's a holiday, it doesn't matter on the holidays!"

Well, it does matter! You need to live, and you need to enjoy the weekends and the holidays, but eat smaller portions and think about things before you eat them. Some things are just not worth the calories!

Have a great holiday weekend!!

A Day in the Life: The Scale Keeps Dropping!

Post by Shannon 

It feels great to be back in shape again! I can't even tell you how great it feels! I still can't believe I've lost 60 pounds since the day I had our baby last August 2011. It's crazy!

Anyway, I'm not sharing this to brag, but I'm sharing this to say that you can do it too!


I think that part of the problem is that people think they can't do it. They think that is how they have always been so they won't be able to change.

I was really discouraged after I had my first daughter. I was the highest weight I'd ever been in my life! I got up to 199 the day I had her, and then went down to 188 by the time I came home from the hospital five days later.

Yep, this is me at the hospital after our first daughter was born. Not feeling cute at all!
It wasn't very hard to lose the first few pounds because it was mostly water, but then it got hard, really hard, and I got depressed. I thought, "I guess this is how I'm going to be from now on."

I'd alway been between 130-140 for most of my life, mostly 135. So this was a huge jump for me! I didn't understand when people talked about struggling to lose weight, because I never had that problem, until I had kids.


I'm so glad I found Beachbody. Beachbody's workouts and products gave me motivation because they really worked. I saw results. I used them because I loved them, and I recommended them all the time even before I became a Beachbody Coach.

I did P90X and Insanity after my first baby. I was able to get down to 137 before I got pregnant again. It took me about a year to lose the weight the first time.

This time I did Insanity, Turbo Fire and used Shakeology. I'm 136 now, and my baby is 9 months old. I went from 196 to 136 in 9 months.

This was me a few days ago wearing a size 6 dress. :)


Shakeology really helped me get results faster. It is a meal replacement shake. I have been eating five times a day, and this is one of my meals. I add a liquid (almond milk, regular milk, water, orange juice, etc.) and then some fruit (a banana, frozen strawberries, etc.). I love it! I love the chocolate and strawberry flavors the best!

Before using Shakeology, I used whey protein powder, fiber powder and flax seed. Now I just use Shakeology. When I was using the whey protein powder, I had more energy and felt good, but it didn't help me lose weight. Shakeology has helped me lose weight faster and feel energized! I've seen much better results faster by using it! I haven't been down to this weight since I was in college in 1999-2003, and I owe it all to Shakeology! The working out and eating healthy has really helped, but Shakeology has made the difference to lose weight faster.

Shakeology is gluten free, doesn't have artificial sweeteners or flavors, no refined sugars, over 70 all natural whole food ingredients, is stimulant free, has 23 vitamins and minerals, prebiotics and digestive enzymes, antioxidants and phytonutrients, etc. Tropical is also vegan. It is really healthy and much better for you than most meal replacement shakes.

Weigh In Day: Feeling great!

It's Weigh In Day!! How did you do? Every Monday we weigh ourselves and take our measurements to track our progress. It's not about the numbers, it's more about making progress.

I didn't love my scale when I started this weight loss journey!! The numbers were way too high! The good news is they have been going down, and I've feeling great!

I would have never told you these numbers or shown you these pictures when I first started, but since they have gone down so much, I'm okay with it. :)

On August 9, 2011 when I had my baby, I was 196 now I'm 136 as of today! 

On Sept. 26 I started working out. This was about six weeks after I had our baby. 

I started using Shakeology in December and I noticed a big difference right away. It really helped with my progress.

Here are my results! 

Start date Sept. 26, 2011:

Weight: 178, now 136
Waist: 39", now 28"
Hips: 42", now 34.5"
Arms: 12", now 10.5"
Thighs: 39", now 32.5"
Body fat: 33%, now 23.4 %

Here are a couple more recent pictures!

I have muscles now! :)

Still working on the 6 Pack, but it's coming!

WEEKEND CHALLENGE- Maximum Push ups!

Post by Shannon

It's Friday! Every Friday we have a WEEKEND CHALLENGE! The challenge for this week is to see how many push ups you can do in a row!

History behind the challenge:

Yesterday I was doing push ups in my workout. I was excited because my push ups are getting a lot better and becoming easier each time.

When I started this journey last September, I could barely do a push up on my knees! I even did the first month of the Insanity program twice because I was so bad at push ups! Now I can do "real" push ups without any problems!

I love feeling stronger and more fit!

Let us know how you do this weekend! Patrick and I will tell you are results too!

Have a great weekend!!
