I just realized a couple things this morning:
1) #Shakeology is my coffee. I drink my shake every morning as I get Roy’s breakfast made and lunch/snacks packed. It wakes me up. It keeps me from going back to sleep after I get back from taking Roy to work. It keeps me nourished for a couple hours until I’m hungry for real food.
1.5) I should pack another one as I head out the door to run errands. It keeps me full and nourished so I don’t eat something bad…. Which leads me to my next point.
2) Shakeology keeps me from making bad food choices. On my way home from getting the car’s oil changed this morning, I stopped by Chick-fil-a. I couldn’t tell you the last time I ate there. But, on this 20-degree morning, one of their milkshakes sounded AWESOME. A couple things here. Shakeology tastes JUST LIKE a milkshake, and whenever I crave a milkshake I make myself a Shakeology instead. Also, real milkshakes do not like me nearly as much as I like them. But I decided, regretfully, to ignore that fact, and now I’m hurting.
Moral of this story: I know that Shakeology does wonders for me, and has truly enhanced my dietary habits and even allowed me to “cheat” when I have a sweets craving, but I had NO IDEA how much my body actually CRAVES this stuff and how quick it is to reject the crappy fast foodstuffs now.
What do you NEED in the morning to get going? Are you a coffee person? Have you tried Shakeology?
