What You Should Know Before Purchasing Shakeology on Amazon

how to try shakeology samples sampler sale cheaper price
This post is not going to address whether or not you should purchase Shakeology.

Instead, this post is to help you GET THE MOST FOR YOUR MONEY, if you've already decided you want to TRY SHAKEOLOGY.

Now, IF you go to AMAZON and "purchase" Shakeology there, it will automatically reroute you to the Beachbody website.  There you will be given 2 OPTIONS (minus selecting flavor or packets versus a bag):

AMAZON BEACHBODY OPTION #1
ONE-TIME ORDER ONLY

what's the difference between shakeology
$129.95 Shakeology (Bag or Packets)
$10.40   Estimated Tax
$14.94   Estimated Shipping
______________________
$155.29 TOTAL COST




AMAZON BEACHBODY OPTION #2
MONTHLY AUTO-SHIP

how can I try shakeology or get samples
$129.95 Shakeology (Bag or Packets)
$10.40   Estimated Tax
$2.00     Super Discount Shipping
_________________________
$142.35




PROS AND CONS:
Obviously between these 2 options, the latter SAVES you $12.94.  And if you go with the latter, you will be RANDOMLY ASSIGNED a FREE BEACHBODY COACH.  On the cons, you will also need to cancel the auto-ship if you decide you do not want it later.  GOOD NEWS is that there is a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee for BOTH OPTIONS.

BEST OPTIONS:

IF you decide to PURCHASE THROUGH A BEACHBODY COACH, you will get assigned to that specific Coach, AND have the OPTION to GET A FREE WORKOUT PROGRAM (which comes with a customizable nutrition plan)!!!

This is called a CHALLENGE PACK.  Every month Beachbody FEATURES a different FREE PROGRAM.  You'll know it because it will be listed as the $140 program.  There are more expensive Challenge Packs that include more expensive programs that are never discounted, however I'm trying to compare apples to apples here.

GO THROUGH A BEACHBODY COACH OPTION#1
CHALLENGE PACK
where can I buy shakeology
$140.00 Shakeology AND a Program (21 Day Fix, P90X, Insanity etc)
$11.20   Estimated Tax
$2.00     Super Discount Shipping
__________________
$153.20 TOTAL COST


PROS AND CONS: 
You GET A FREE PROGRAM!!!  Normally, on average, by themselves, these programs run anywhere between $59.85 to $119.85 on Amazon or through a Coach.  Through a CHALLENGE PACK, you get Shakeology AND and a program for very close to the SAME PRICE you would pay ABOVE.  PLUS, a Challenge Pack (on my team and usually others) gets you EXCLUSIVE ACCESS to a PRIVATE ONLINE SUPPORT GROUP with daily motivation, tips, accountability, recipe ideas, prizes, AND a FREE COACH!

This is probably the option that GIVES YOU THE MOST FOR YOUR MONEY.

Hope this is helpful.  I am a Beachbody Coach, so if you do purchase anything above, I will be assigned as YOUR COACH.  However, IF you ALREADY HAVE A COACH, then all the ABOVE OPTIONS are AVAILABLE through your coach, and I recommend you reach out to them for details.

Shame vs Guilt in Weightloss and Parenting

feel horrible about yourself

What a WEIRD TOPIC you might say.  

And how is it related to health and fitness.  Well, I've been reading a lot of Brene Brown's books (which are fabulous by the way), and it's drawn my attention to this idea of SHAME vs. GUILT.

I guess the easiest way to explain it is, you FEEL SHAME when you do something wrong and you feel like you DESERVE IT because IT'S WHO YOU ARE.  

You FEEL GUILT, on the other hand, when you do something wrong that may go against your moral code, but you DO NOT attribute it to who you are as a person.

EXAMPLE SITUATION:  Let's say you want to lose 20 lbs but work has been really stressful and so you've been eating candy, cake, chips, and fast food because it's easy,  available, and in that moment, it serves as comfort because it all just feels overwhelming.  You also feel like you have no time to workout.  So the days pass, workouts get skipped, and you can't stay on track with your nutrition because it's just too hard.

SHAME vs. GUILT - HOW IT SHOWS UP:

If you feel SHAME, you might say things to yourself like, "I suck.  I obviously have no self control.  I feel like crap.  I'm just not good enough or strong enough because I always fail.  It's too hard.  I know I'll start again tomorrow but deep down I know it's futile.  I'll probably just cheat again.  It's like an uphill battle.  I should just accept that I'm going to be fat forever."

If you feel GUILT, your inner dialogue might be something like, "Gosh, I need to get back on track.  I know I can do better than this.  I am better than this.  I don't even feel good when I eat like crap.  Come on!  I gotta get my butt in gear.  I know if I exercise and eat right, I will feel better."

SEE THE DIFFERENCE?  The trick is to REALIZE that YOU ARE WORTH IT.  SHAME is way more DESTRUCTIVE than GUILT.  GUILT can actually beCONSTRUCTIVE and USEFUL.  Guilt can be a CATALYST FOR CHANGE.  

SHAME just makes you spiral.  Shame is TIED TO SELF-WORTH, and the first step in MOVING FROM SHAME to GUILT is TALKING POSITIVELY to YOURSELF.  

Recognize that your actions DO NOT ALWAYS DEFINE YOU.  What DEFINES YOU is WHERE YOU ARE GOING and WHO YOU CHOOSE TO BE.

I'll close with this example.  A mother says to her daughter who has been doing arts and crafts, "Honey, you're so messy."  And her daughter responds, "I'm not messy.  I might have made a mess, but I am not messy."  Food for thought :)  

How we talk to ourselves is powerful.  How we talk to our children and those we love is too.  I'm sending you lots of positive vibes and hugs today.  I BELIEVE IN YOU.  YOU WERE MADE FOR AMAZING THINGS.  Go out there and BE GREAT!
