Transformation Tuesday

It has been 8 months since I really became serious with my healthy way of life.  I started at 140 pounds and a size 10 almost size 12.  Today I am happy to say I am at 127 pounds and a size 4 almost size 2.  I cannot tell you how much better I feel about myself.  I have energy again, and self-confidence.  I don’t feel sluggish and bloated.

Did it happen overnight? Absolutely not. Was it easy? Heck no.  I worked hard, and stay committed.  I did not give up, and I’m not done yet.  Did I eat like a bird and never eat snacks, desserts, fast food? Absolutely not.  I have found that eating healthy 80% of the time, along with Shakeology daily, has helped me achieve my goals.

If you are ready to make a change in your life, I would love to be your accountability partner.  Being healthy is NOT a destination, it’s a way of life.  Taking the first step is half the battle.  One day at a time.

If You Like Pina Coladas…

I went on vacation to an indoor waterpark the past few days. They made the best Pina Coladas ever.  I was craving one today so I whipped up a much healthier version.   I have to say it was absolutely delicious!
