Happy Friday! So its your lucky day. Im going to talk about me and my cat. Oh yeah… I’m that lady. Bear with me, will ya? I cover some incredibly valuable goodies. Anyways, thank goodness I landed a boyfriend last year and defended my sanity a bit, because just like any proud pet owner, me and my little man have been through a lot. He was completely there for me during the hardest of times and Id like to think the same could be applied towards me for him. It wasnt until recently that I realized how much of our journey has been about food… that was until something simple changed both of our lives.
My cat has always been skittish and scared and skinny. Ive taken him to the vet with different discussions covering my concerns, but there was one particular scare where he almost lost his life. He stopped eating after hiding away too long due to a huge family gathering. My mother nursed him back to health as shes nursed all her children from time to time. Despite that being two thanksgivings ago, he still didnt eat as much as Id like him to. How the heck am I going to get my cat to eat nutritously and live a long life and have just as shiny a coat as my neighbors’ handsome felines!? Well whadya know…theres this food, thats soft, that cats love, and its actually GOOD for them. It actually incorporates everything they need, especially hydrating components- with the best part about it is the cats will actually eat it. Whats the catch? Vets and people for years have said its BAD for you or its too EXPENSIVE, well science has come a long way. The soft food has recently been reccomended and my cat has already gained 1.5 lbs in a few days. Im STOKED. He will be the bravest and baddest around, and I will brag to the mountains about him!!!
Hector when I first got him…back in my College Days at DPU…
Okay cat lady, you might ask so how are you saving YOUR life? I will caution you…Im in sales, so prepare yourself… However, whatever your choice, try and listen because this is not a 30 second informercial. This is a personal story 🙂 If you see my facebook postings or have just heard about it recently, Shakeology is an incredibly nutritious low calorie meal replacement/snack and I, whadya know, sell it. Ive always suggested it to people, but its taken on a whole new importance in my life and I’ll tell you why. Ive always struggled with feeling satisfied, getting the nutrition my body demands (especially with a stressful life/active lifestyle), and being “regular”. 2 years ago I got my weight down incorporating more fiber and veggies, focusing on low fat, low calorie food. However I knew I could be healthier. I know that I dont love fruit, drink enough water, or take vitamins the way I should. Ive been wondering what I should do or felt bad because I could be being better about that, but NOW I can say that Im addressing these previous weaknesses in my diet because I drink Shakeology EVERY DAY. This is why I feel confident to sell it my friends, family, class attendees. I didnt think it was realistic to have it every day, but when you find yourself proving YOURSELF wrong, some concrete ideas are formed in your head. I knew it was good for me, but for whatever reason I hadnt listened to exactly why.
I urge you to watch the videos I include but while your reading heres a very simple explanation from a co-fitness/shakeology lover as to why its incredible for people:
“it helps your body gently eliminate toxins more efficiently while allowing for better absorption of the essential nutrients you need. A proprietary blend of digestive enzymes and probiotics helps your body progressively eliminate the toxins that build up over time from eating today’s highly processed foods.
At the same time, whole-food ingredients deliver the essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to curb cravings, allowing your body to shed stored fat while the more than 20 different antioxidants and phytonutrients help reduce free radical damage that can lead to heart disease, heart attacks, high blood pressure, and stroke.”
So its incredibly packed with the punch everyone would benefit adding into their lifestyle. Its not too good to be true, because yes it tastes great. I have it with powdered peanut butter, I add coffee and hazelnut creamer, you can add almond milk, yogurt, bananas! Theres a million recipes out there and at only $4 a day, its the closest thing to “magic” I can get to. When people ask me whats my secret to the transformation Ive achieved and maintained from years ago, I absolutely believe Shakeology plays a huge role! It was even featured here in Oprah’s May 2011 magazine. Her editor in chief did a detailed story covering it!
The Doctors in this video hit the nail on the head by explaining that if one person had all the time to travel all over the world gathering these ingredients, mixing them all together so that they still taste good, and still be under $4 a day? Youd be insane. This is such a value its incredible. But just like I learned in sales. Its going to COST you or be an EXPENSE when you look at it as someting you dont need. If its something that tastes incredible, makes you feel like youve never felt, and saves your life, well then $4 a day is a STEAL. Im personally going to drink it until they throw me in jail! Here you can see the various ingredients you can include in your shakeology.
Hector (my cat) and I have been pretty darn happy lately. It used to be an apple a day will keep the doctor away and hard cat food is key to good teeth and a shiny coat. Unfortunately apples arent what they used to be (chemicals, lack of nutrients and fiber) and niether are the rules from veterinarians. Its up to us to be on the look out for those necessary items in improving our health. And I just may be able to help you out. Ive been known to give out a sample or two after class! There are two flavors with chocolate being the most popular. Theres a tropical version coming soon and it gets even better … its VEGAN.
