How to Shake Your Shakeology

It is so import to know HOW to make your Shakeology. If you follow the directions on the back of the bag, it will come out WAY too thick! Here’s what I do:

I use 1 cup of almond milk (I always use unsweetened almond milk). I then add water to my shake. Depending on how thick you like the shakes, will determine how much water to add. For me, I don’t like it too thick so I add 1/2 cup. My hubby likes them thiner, so he gets closer to a cup. From there’s I’ll add 8-10 ice cubes and I blend. It may take you a few tries before you find the consistency, so add the water gradually.

Here are some of my favorite recipes:

Chocolate Covered Banana
1 cup unsweetened almond milk (vanilla is really yummy)
1/2 cup water
8-10 ice cubes
1/2 banana (frozen if possible)
1 scoop peanut butter (Can use pb2)
1 scoop chocolate Shakeology
*this recipe is yummy without peanut butter, too!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Vanilla Shakeo
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup water
8-10 ice cubes
1/2 banana (frozen if possible)
1 scoop peanut butter (Can use pb2)
1/2 cup frozen/fresh strawberies or blueberries
1 scoop vanilla Shakeology
*if you use frozen fruit reduce ice cubes

Greenberry Berry Good
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup water
8-10 ice cubes
1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 cup mango
1/2 banana
1 scoop of Greenberry Shakeology
*if you use frozen fruit reduce ice cubes

My Big Fat Greek Strawberry
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup water
8-10 ice cubes
1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1/2 medium banana
1 scoop of Strawberry Shakeology

Better than a Frap
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup water
Splash of vanilla extract
8-10 coffee cubes (frozen coffee 😜)
1 scoop of chocolate Shakeology (vanilla tastes good too)
*I sometimes add 1/2 banana, too
**Try flavored coffee. It’s yummy!



Ugh…Resolution Time

A year ago I was trying to figure out what I was going to do in the New Year to better myself. I was running outside occasionally but struggled a lot with sweet cravings, energy, and motivation. Just like a lot of people I made a New Years resolution to workout more and eat bettet. The Hubby even got me 12 yoga classes, which I’ve yet to use (all the yogis out there don’t freak out😁). But by the end of January I was still struggling with my resolutions. We then bought a treadmill and I signed up for the Broadstreet 10 Miler. I posted it online my goal to complete, so it helped me stay motivated. Yet I still struggled with my nutrition. I am so thankful that after 4 months of struggling with energy and nutrition I found the 21 day fix program and Shakeology.

What’s my point?? I read today about how to stay motivated when it comes to resolutions:

1. Write down why you want to change whatever you are resolving to do.
2. Make an action plan to stay motivated daily…like brushing your teeth (that’s a no Brainer act!).
3. Have some sort of accountability…maybe an accountability group of some sort.

My accountability was posting about my race. But once my training was done, I joined my first challenge/accountability group. There’s something to be said about having to check in daily….good day, bad days, or ugly days my group was there for support, tips and mostly motivation. Almost 9 months later I’m still going strong and now hosting my own groups. From all the groups I’ve hosted in 2014, I’ve helped people lose 100s a pounds and reach tons of goals.

Now it’s your turn. I spent today discussing all of my 2015 resolutions with my husband. What’s your resolution? What’s your goal? Why is it your goal?? How can I help you achieve it????


Where’s the Shakeo at Target?? Target has EVERYTHING?!?!


This is a conversation you my hear at a Target, Walmart, Kamart, or any other fine establishment that sells “Other Products”:

“Um, yes, I’m looking for the Shakeology…No SHAKEOLOGY???  OK, what about that cute Sean T fellow and Insanity???  NO Insanity…OK, how about some p90x…that Tony Horton is AMAZING???  Brazilian Butt LIFT…I KNOW YOU HAVE THAT!!”

Why Can’t I Buy Beachbody Products in stores??


This question gests asked all the time…NO, you can’t buy Beachbody dvds and Shakeolgy in stores.  You may be asking yourself, “Why?”

Team Beachbody created their programs so you won’t fail.  They found if you have a friend, buddy, or coach to chat with about your struggles and goals, you have a better chance of getting maximum results.  When you purchase any program, even just Shakeology, you have a coach.  Even if you just went onto and ordered Shakeology, YOU HAVE A COACH.  You are never alone.

On the business side of this, as a coach, when you reach a certain level of business (the first ranking), you are given these new ‘leads’ to help them reach their goals.  The commission is yours and anything they buy in the future, you also earn commission for.  Beachbody doesn’t just want the people who buy the programs to succeed, but also their coaches!

If you ever thought of being coach, and want to inspire others to make a healthy changes, if you want to live your life brighter each day, then take a chance.  JOIN MY TEAM.  Our team has a ton of information, leadership, and support.  It’s not just a team…it’s a FAMILY!
