Unicorn Shakeology

I think we have all seen the hype about the new Starbucks Unicorn Frapp and I am not going to lie. I fell victim and just had to try it. Ok, so a co-worker got one and I tasted it, I knew I couldn’t commit myself to a full one, I’m at least a little bit realistic. Now I will say it was pretty, but definitely not all it lived up too. And trust me. I love unicorns.

But let’s be honest, we all don’t need that sugar bomb. Being pretty can only take you so far in life.  (I’m looking at you Jessica Simpson)

So what if I told you, you can make a beautiful unicorn drink that is also good for you?

Pretty excited huh?

Because honestly, I think we all love unicorns and glitter.

Shakeology is already the unicorn of health shakes aiding in weight loss, boosting energy, curbing junk food cravings, improving digestion, reducing inflammation, and much much more so it’s only fitting that we have a UNICORN Shakeology Recipe right?!

I thought so, so here it is loves.

Unicorn Shakeology

Ingredients 

1 scoop vanilla Shakeology – divided into thirds
1/3 cup blackberries
1/3 cup pineapple (can also added a couple of pieces of mango)
1/3 cup strawberries
12oz coconut or almond milk – divided into thirds

Directions
Blend 1/3 scoop of Shakeology + fruit + milk + ice (to desired consistency) in blender.

Then pour each in your glass creating the layer effect and if you REALLY want, top with whipped cream and sprinkles to make it look pretty! ✨
So there you have it, a HEALTHY, GUILT FREE, and beautiful unicorn shake.

life lately…as told by selfies

You can tell so much about a person by looking at the photo’s on their phones. I realized this when I was thinking about what type of post I wanted to write about. I thought “What have I been doing lately? Anything new to report? What has been on my mind?” I always look to my photo’s because that always gives me a good idea of what I have been doing.

Well I can tell you what has been taking up all my spare time. Online Coaching/Supporting my Challenge Group participants and… Selfies. Goodness. You can tell my life revolves around coffee, drinks, and random nights with Matt.

I kid you not there is not much on my phone. And for your entertainment I want to prove it to you.

This is about a weeks worth or so of photo’s from my phone.

Enjoy.

Let’s begin with all the shameless selfies.

Sometimes when I have good hair days, I take coffee selfies.

And sometimes I like to document when I actually get out in the world.

When I don’t want to seem too vain, I make Matt selfie with me.

On our morning coffee dates.

Delicious food was first had.

My skills of getting everyone in the photo amaze me.

I then make my pets selfie too.

But really, when Rommy loves our new dining room table more than we do, he deserves a photo shoot.

This was the first day we had it. I guess he was giving his seal of approval.

He then decided he wanted to have dinner with us.

I know a lot of you are thinking the pets shouldn’t be on the furniture… but that just doesn’t happen in this house.

And a ton of accountability collages. I don’t just coach my challengers, I participate too!

There is still some food in my life. I won’t lie I’m so busy fancy meals don’t happen as often, but I still like to give shout outs to some of my favorite products that help make simple, quick, but delicious meals.

(bagels + almond butter = ah-mazing)

(side note: I just ran out of my Growing Naturals Vanilla Pea Protein which is a sad time. I literally use this stuff daily, if you need a vegan protein source – get this!)

So yea, that’s basically what my life is right now, and honestly I can’t really complain.

I’m busy, but I’m happy and content.

And I have a lot of these on my photo album too. And life is all about staying positive.

Reasons To Be Happy

What story would your photo’s tell?

Do you take a lot of selfies?

master of the obvious

Disclaimer: I am a Beachbody coach however this post is not a sponsored or a promotional post. It’s just my life and how I feel about the programs and fitness.

I don’t even know begin with all this. I have always been into fitness, health and nutrition and want to not only fuel my body with real nutrient dense foods, but give it appropriate fitness it needs to be the strongest I can. I definitely go through my phases. HITT, tabata style, running, strength training, you name it, I have gone through it.  There are so many benefits to each of them, but I think what I finally realized is there needs to be a balance between them on. Not focus on just one over the other.

Seems like common sense, but I recently realized my body is so much smarter than I give it credit for. My recent phase was running. It had been forever since I ran, I decided to go one day and thought wow I really missed running. Then I signed up to be a Beachbody coach and as a coach I felt it was only right that I do a program because that’s the main focus of the company. Be a product of the product. If I didn’t do the program how can I try and tell others that they work? If I didn’t drink Shakeology, how could I tell others the benefits? I couldn’t.

Come to find out. I loved the programs. I loved Shakeology.

And I was getting results.

But I still wanted to switch things up with my fitness, keep my body guessing. Doing the same thing over and over regardless of what it is, the body gets use to it. We need to switch it now and then. So I thought on my active rest days I would go for a run.

Then I realized something. I do not like running. And I don’t think my body does anymore either. I just could not get into it. And when the whole time all you can think about is when it’s going to be over, then you probably shouldn’t be doing it.

I’m not going to lie, there are so many mornings when I wake up and I do not want to do my 21 Day Fix Extreme work out, but I will tell you by the middle and end I am so glad I did and I get into it and push harder. That’s the difference.

So what does all this rambling mean? Well like I said for most this is probably common sense, but it was just kind of an ah-ha moment for me. I like to share these only because I think so many of us miss the obvious. And need others to go through it and share it for us to really get it.

SO maybe this is just another phase, I don’t know. I’m not saying I will never run again, but what I’m doing right now… well I’m loving it.

I am also so super excited because I am hosting my very first 30 day Facebook fitness challenge and honestly the thing I am most excited about it helping others reach their goals.
