Taking on a new fitness adventure...

Check this out…3 days in a row posting to my blog! Are you overwhelmed? My goal is to get better, okay not daily but more than once a week and  I guess I just have lots to say this week!

Last week I decided to take a huge leap and do something that I thought was very much out of character for me but I soon realized was a perfect fit. I became a Beachbody Coach!!  Check it out…Marathon Mom also be sure to follow me on Facebook where I will share the upcoming challenge groups. Who’s up for a 7 Day Healthy Eating challenge or Month long fitness challenge?

I mean why not?! I love fitness, I love running, I love working to achieve a higher level of health and wellness for myself and family and I love sharing this passion with others. As an injured runner I’ve been looking for something else to compliment my workouts as I slowly increase and build back my running. I am loving Piyo and can’t wait to try the next. What runner doesn’t need a low impact workout that is focused on flexibility, strength and a lot of core stability?!  And even better the workouts are short enough that I can fit them in my super busy schedule and still feel like they are making a difference. Many mornings I even get a partner in my Piyo…
My other issue has been the afternoon carb attacks! I know I’ve mentioned my boredom eating on multiple posts well I think after many attempts I’ve found my solution! I’ve never been one to believe hype and jump on a product but the Shakeology  blended with fruit and almond milk or coconut water has fixed this. I’m having fun experimenting with ingredients but so far all are great and no more overcarbing from 2-6pm!

The other thing I have noticed is for the first time in forever (Is it just me or does that line have you singing the Frozen song? Sorry!) I can run in the evening without wanting to drop from exhaustion in the first 10 minutes! I’ve had great evening runs the last couple weeks and last night so did my husband after his introduction to Shakeology.


I promise with this new adventure I will not turn my blog into a big advertisement so please don’t run away! I just want to share my experience and encourage anyone to ask questions, contact me for more info or share their experiences. I’d love to hear your favorite Shakeology recipes too.

    1. Thanks :) I don't know why I've fought protein shakes so long, guess I just needed to find the right one.

    1. Seriously if you have any questions email me. Have you tried shakeology yet? With your background you'd be great and could get certified to team as well bringing the workouts to others :)

  5. Congrats on the new venture. I want to wait and see how everyone likes Piyo. I was on Shakeology for a while but the price kills me. But they did the trick while I used them
