Confession:  I am OBSESSED with Shakeology and Insanity.  Shake-what you ask? Shakeology.  Those near and dear to me know that I have been raving about both Insanity and Shakeology for months.

Since having two children, I have been on a mission to create the best version of me possible.  I have tried a number of different methods and while many have failed, Beachbody has definitely succeeded.  As of August 27, 2011, I have completed two rounds of Insanity.  Yes, that makes me freaking INSANE.  However, I love it! Actually, let me clarify…I love the results.  I often roll my eyes and swear my way through the workouts.  They are the hardest workouts I have ever done.  I went so far as to cancel my gym membership because the program works so much better for my crazy schedule of motherhood and I achieved better results in 60 days with Insanity and Shakeology than I did with two years in the gym.  I complete the workouts in my living room and there are no excuses for me. If I have to run and let the dog out, I do it.  If I need to get milk for one of my kids, I do it.  I just keep pushing play and pulling myself up off the floor.

I made the decision early on that not only do I need to work out, which I have always done fairly consistently, but  I also need to eat cleaner and set a better example for my children.  Don’t get me wrong, I am nowhere near perfect and enjoy pizza and wine as much as the next.  However, I try.

I ordered Shakeology after reading online raves and it has become my multi-vitamin.  I have a shake every day for breakfast and love how it makes me feel.  I have even done the 3 day Cleanse with Shakeology and lost 7 lbs the last time around.  The stuff is simply fabulous.  The only downfall to Shakeology is the price.  It is expensive.  However, I view it as a lifestyle modification and have given up my afternoon coffee from Starbucks to balance the budget per se.  In addition, I signed up as a “Coach” to receive the product at a discount and to hold myself accountable to my goals.  I truly feel the Beachbody programs are absolutely amazing. I am so inspired by many of my friends that have made incredible changes on p90x and Insanity.  I just happen to be one of the many that have had success with these programs.

I am not a naturally thin person.  I am naturally a person that has an obsession with poor eating habits.  However, being a great mom to my Arm Candies is numero uno on my priority list and part of my being a good mom is making good decisions.  Becoming a Beachbody coach is my decision to commit to my health and the health of my family.  So, join me on this journey! You can sign up for a FREE membership here and have access to an incredible amount of fitness tools.  (body fat composition, weight loss trackers, recipes, message boards).  You also get free coaching and I would love to answer your questions regarding the programs.  Feel free to enter “CoachChayna” when you sign up and let’s get fit together!

Ok, I am off to push play and sweat myself to a healthier me! If you are seriously interested in trying Shakeology, send me a message and I am happy to send you a sample.  I am also planning on starting TurboFire once I finish my second round of Insanity and P90X2 on January 1, 2012.   If you are interested in joining me, email me @!
