Ok, Ok, so I haven't been blogging as much as I originally said that I was going to. I have still been doing Turbo Fire and I have been adding in some P90x strength training videos three days a week. I am happy with the results that I have received with doing these programs. I really noticed the increase in my endurance that turbo fire has given me a couple of days ago when I was jogging with a co-worker. (Keep in mind I usually despise running and stop completely winded after about 5 min) We were jogging along and she was ready to stop after about 5 min (much like I usually am) but I was NOT ready to stop. That 5 min. was not even getting me to breathe hard, I encouraged her to keep going and that it was all in her mind that she wanted to stop. I kept chanting the famous words of Chalene Johnson "You are not tired" LOL. Well I got her to go about a 1.25 miles (about 12 min) before we finally had to stop. Oh, might I also mentioned I challenged her to a sprint about the last 100 yards. I was SHOCKED at how much energy I still had and how fast I was sprinting. I am the non-runner, what was going on? When we got to the stopping point I was still ready for more. We ended up just walking another 1.25 miles due to the fact that she had a pretty bad cramp in her side but I was still over the moon that I could do so much more that I used to and still could have done more. Wow, all of that in a few short weeks. I can't wait to see how much better it gets from here.
But here is the most exciting thing to me.....
A couple of weeks after I got my turbo fire program I decided to become a beachbody coach because I am addicted to beachbody products and I was really interested in trying shakeology. I thought ok, this stuff is pretty pricey but if I sign up as a coach I can get 25% off. If this stuff does what it says it will do it is worth it to me.
See, I have a TON of stomach issues. I usually have pretty bad pain daily among other things that people reading this blog do not want to know about. Anyway, I have visited the GI doc over and over and over with really no relief to speak of. About 6 months ago I read about shakeology but at the time decided that it was too expensive so I just put that thought aside and continued on the way that I was going. A few months later one of my friends started Herbalife and became a distributor. They had some products that were supposed to help with digestion so I thought I would give them a try and I would be helping my friend out with her business. About $300 in products later I did notice a difference. I was not having quite the amount of pain that I once was. I was very pleased with this. Then I started thinking...... ummmmm, If I DO sign up I would be able to get my shakeology for around $90 a month. What I once thought was so expensive now seemed like a real bargain. I was not going to have to buy the protein shake stuff, multiple supplements, aloe gel, etc, etc. etc. that I had to buy with herbalife. It was all in ONE convenient yummy shake and it was going to actually SAVE me about $200.
I bit the bullet and did it... I got my shakeology a couple of days ago and WOW!! Day one I noticed a difference. I felt the energy right away and no stomach pain AT ALL (during a time that I would normally have a lot, if you know what I am referring to). Day two same thing, today, same thing. WOW. I am so excited about this product that I want to shout it from the roof tops. Finally something that makes me feel normal again. I haven't had this in about 7 years. While I am still not sure if these kind of results will keep up long term yet I am certain that I am off to a great start. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will keep y'all updated about this. Could this be my miracle cure????? LOL
