On Special - March Only!!!!

Hey, I know you've heard me talk about Shakeology before.  But this month I'm offering a special deal because I really think it's worth it for you to try it.  I'm willing to give anyone who places an "HD" order of healthy, delicious awesomeness a $25 GIFT CARD.  Why would I give you back pretty much everything I make on selling it?  Because I think it's worth losing the profit to get you to try this and see what it does for your body!  I'm even willing to take a picture of myself with NO MAKE-UP on and a crazy Shakeology mustache just to get you to smile a little while you think about taking me up on my offer.
And why do I tell you to order it "HD?"  Because I also don't think you should have to pay the shipping on it.  When you order Shakeology HD you pay no shipping, and now you get a Gift Card too.  If you don't want Shakeology to show up on your doorstep the next month, just send an email to customer service and cancel the HD.  That's it!
If you want more info on Shakeology or you are ready to place your order just go HERE!
(Keep reading for more specials under the silly picture!)

Now, for even more special deals!  These deals come straight from Team Beachbody.  In the picture below you will see some amazing deals on Challenge packs!  What is a challenge pack?  It's a Beachbody program and Shakeology all bundled together with a reduced price just so you can save money when you buy them together.  However, this month Team Beachbody has dropped the prices on some of our BEST Packs!

Have you thought about trying the famous "P90X" or maybe you want to start with something a little less intense like "Slim in 6"  Both of these great programs are reduced, but only for this month.  What else do you get with this great deal?  This is the MOST IMPORTANT PART, so I hope you are paying attention.  You get your program, you get a bag of Shakeology, you get a Nutrition program designed to work with your workouts, you get a full-time Fitness Coach dedicated to helping you get through your program (that's ME!), and you get the support of others going through the experience with you in a group environment.  And you get access to the Team Beachbody website and all the fitness tips and support offered there too...for FREE!  Just think about how different your results can be when you have all this on your side helping you to achieve your goals.
Ready to get your Challenge Pack?  Just go HERE and then click on the Challenge Packs picture on the bottom right of the page.

I can honestly say that this has been what's made a difference for me, why not let make a difference for you too?

Holy Shoveling Batman!

This one is way late due to illness on my part and my kids.  :(  I mean who wants to post all about how they feel queasy for 3 days?!?!  Not me, but there you have it anyway.  And now that we got another 9 inches yesterday, it's still appropriate.  ;)

So last week we had a HUGE snowstorm.  I'm talking sideways-blowing, whiteout conditions here for about 4 hours!  After school activities were cancelled and even the Park District and Library closed early.  I got to school early to pick up my kids, but it still took over 20 minutes of waiting in the "parent car line" to get to my kids.  Must have been all those extra parents picking up that day.  But here's what it looked like outside from my car.

You may not be able to tell from the pictures, but the snow was coming down so fast, and the wind was blowing so hard that the snow was going sideways!

Anyway, why am I telling you all about the snowstorm?  Because it gave me a good excuse to change up my workouts!  I mean shoveling is a serious workout especially when it's the heavy stuff like this was.  You work your arms, back, abs, and even your glutes, quads and hamstrings if you do it right.  A lot of people tend to push the shovel under the snow, lift and throw it.  But if you squat before you lift you will actually protect your back from being strained, and you get a much better workout out of it.  So squat, lift, throw.  Whole body workout right there!  And yeah, I was way sore the next day from this.  But I guess 45 minutes of shoveling 5-6 inches of snow off your driveway (10 inches at the bottom after the plow comes by...) is a fantastic all-over body workout.  Should have had a recovery drink!  LOL!

So what kind of random workouts have you found yourself doing?

I just wanted to send out a quick apology to my loyal readers!  This last week has been absolutely crazy and I haven't made time to write.  You will see that in the next few posts I will catch you up on what has been going on, but I didn't want you to think I forgot about you! 
Illnesses, snowstorms, and a whole tankful of fish stories!  And let's not forget some health and fitness! 

I will start catching you up tomorrow!  Because I will have lots of time while I am trapped in the house all day - School was cancelled due to the impending storm!  WooHOO!  Say hello to LOTS OF SNOW!

See you tomorrow!

Anyone else home in the snow tomorrow?
