Most of you probably already know that I went on a diet back in 2012 and lost over 50 lbs.  From that point I started exercising daily to keep the weight off, and have been mostly successful over the last three years.  I run 2-3 days a week, do Body Pump 1-2 times, play softball/volleyball 2-3 nights and then mix in other things like Insanity or PiYo the rest of the days.  Every day I get stronger and can't complain about my results, but I have hit a bit of a wall over the last year or so.  I hover around the same weight and can't get rid of some belly fat.

So I took the advice of my friend and coach, Erica, and joined her June accountability group. It's 4 weeks of support and encouragement from 20+ others that have the same goals I do.  I can get 1 point each day for doing the following things:

  • Drinking Shakeology
  • Eating every 2-3 hours
  • Drinking half of my weight in ounces of Water
  • Exercising 30 minutes
  • Consume no processed foods, sweets, or alcohol
Aside from daily exercise, I haven't been doing any of these things...period.  I would often skip meals and eat a couple of large ones each day.  Everyone here knows that I love beer, so not drinking this month hasn't been my favorite thing but I'm getting by fine ;)

I will post a full report at the end of June, but I'm two weeks in at this point and already down 5 lbs that I wasn't able to lose before.  I have way more energy, enjoy eating every couple of hours, and crave water above anything else..but still one cup of coffee in the morning (instead of 3-6 cups throughout the day).  I'm achieving 4-5 points every day and loving this new lifestyle.

I will go into more details about Shakeology in another post, but I was very skeptical at first.  I can honestly say though, I have more energy and way less cravings for sweets since I started drinking it daily.  I used to eat ice cream every night, lol.  I also joined as a Team Beachbody Coach!  I'm just getting started with that part of it, but I want to have a more direct way to help others achieve the health success that I have achieved and am always working to improve upon.
