Extreme Adventures

Well, I have completed week one of ChaLean Extreme! Let me tell you, it's intense! I was more than grateful for the rest days that I got! Tough as it is, it will be worth it! 

Even though I worked as hard as I could and was sweating buckets, I didn't see any change on the scale this week. I probably would have had I not gone way over my calories this weekend one too many times. So, it's my own fault. It's ok, though. I am just happy I didn't gain anything! I will do better this week and I am knowing and feeling that I'm getting stronger! 

Aside from working out, I had a busy weekend! I had a garage sale to do (which paid off - big time!). I made a nice chunk of change; enough to take care of the spa package that I plan to book at the end of this month for a special day with my sis/friend April (a birthday gift to ourselves in July!). I can hardly wait for that!! 

The other big thing I've got going on is that I finally decided to become a Beachbody coach! I'm just learning the ropes right now, but hopefully, it will turn out to be a smart choice as well as a profitable venture! Not only do I get a generous Beachbody discount on their products, but I get to encourage others if they pick me as their coach (or sign up as a coach under me). Plus, I can earn off of what people buy if they shop through my link. So, if you're following my blogs and thinking you would like to do ChaLean Extreme right along with me, feel free to visit my page and click "shop". You will LOVE ChaLean Extreme! I am so excited to see my end results because I know I am building muscle! 

I also have a Shakeology link too! My own coach, Dana, gave me a free sample of it and oh my gosh.... let me tell you, it's not your typical protein shake! Anyone who has tried a protein shake knows how chalky, gritty, and sometimes nasty tasting they can be. Shakeology doesn't taste like that AT ALL! In fact, the second I opened it, I could just smell the chocolate! Sometimes, the flavorings can be so subtle that it barely tastes like anything, but I gotta tell you, it was a rich and delicious taste (girls, if you like brownie batter, I could almost compare it to that! It's that good!). It was also nice that I could mix it BY HAND with a spoon and it dissolved very well without clumps or chalkiness (would have used my blender, but I had no ice at the time to make a shake so I just mixed it with some milk). The best part of it all is, Shakeology is FULL of essential nutrition (not to mention a great blend of other nutrients that other drinks/supplements don't have). I'm definitely going to have to get more of it! If you want some too, check out my link!! 

Ok, sorry for sounding like a commercial. Ya'll know how excited I get about stuff that I'm passionate about; regardless of what it is. At the very least, please visit my link and sign up for a Team Beachbody account (it's FREE!). That way, I can at least be your coach! ;) You all are here for me and you KNOW I'm here for you!! We're all in this together!! 

God bless you all! Thanks for your support! I appreciate it!!

If you are burning more calories than you are taking in, you will lose weight. So don’t lose hope. Some advice you’ve heard before, but worked for me:

- The battle begins at the grocery store. Eat before you get there to help fend off urges.
- Do buy healthy snacks.
- Look forward to the day when you don’t exercise as intensely as you are now, and plan a transition to a long-term diet and exercise plan. You are probably aware of the huge percentage of people who regain all their lost weight within three years, and you don’t want to be one of them. If you hurt everywhere after a workout, you probably need a transition plan.
- Reward yourself with new skinny clothes as soon as you can fit into them.
- On days you can’t exercise, stretching as if you are about to exercise will still benefit you (by improving muscle tone).

I lost the weight by hard work and sacrifice of the foods I love. I’ve kept the weight off for 20 years now by being realistic in how much exercise I can reasonably accomplish on a busy day and how much food I need to get through the day, and finding a sustainable balance between the two. People tell me I’m naturally thin, but nothing could be further from the truth. When I committed for final time to losing weight, I signed up for a lifetime of effort and sacrifice, and I cannot get through the day without thinking about quitting at least once.

Is the protein shake that was shared to you safe?
For me I'd love to try Skydiving Sydney as my extreme adventures.

Shakeology? Yes, absolutely!! It has probiotics, vitamins and minerals, enzymes, and is the most complete and jam packed drink I have ever seen! Most that I have seen just have protein and vitamins. This has so much more and does so much more for you!! For all the information on it, check out my link: http://myshakeology.com/esuite/home/melissaforlife
