14 Days of Christmas Shakeology Shake Off



Now that Thanksgiving is over, our bellies are full, pants may be a bit snug,  and we are heading into holiday parities, baking cookies, and the stress of getting our shopping done in time for Christmas.  Ugh!  Although I absolutely LOVE this time of year, it is soooo busy!  Sometimes we just need a little "boost" or accountability to fire things back up, right?  Well, that's what I need as I prepare for all of my upcoming holiday parties!  I don't want to have that mind set of accepting the fact that I am going to put on a few pounds within the next month just because cookies and sweets will be easily accessible.  In fact, I have full intention of staying on track with my clean eating lifestyle but still plan to indulge in my favorite treats....for example, Peanut Butter Blossom cookies.....BEST COOKIES EVER!  I have learned that it is all about finding a balance and deciding what exactly I want to spend my sugar and calorie intake on.  It's true, you CAN have your cake AND eat it too! 


So, are you in need of someone to help you find that balance?  Or maybe you are fully ready to go all in and make that complete healthy lifestyle change. Or is the accountability and tips to help you create a new nutrition habit what you are looking for?

Regardless of your reason, I am inviting you to join my 14 Days of Christmas Shakeology Shake Off, beginning MONDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2013, In any case, I  have faith in knowing that you are doing something GREAT for yourself. At this time of year some of us get so caught up in doing so much for others, that sometimes we just need to put ourselves first, even if it is for just a small portion of time. 

This group is going to run through a closed Facebook group, so, only the members of the group will be able to post and see what is being posted.  You don't even have to leave the comfort of your own home to do this!  You will learn lots of tips, tricks, recipes and be guided on a path to creating some new healthier habits.  You are not alone.  Along with myself, there will be a small group of people who are in this together!  We will all hold each other accountable to staying on track for 14 days. 

Why 14 days?
There are a few reasons.  First, in order to truly begin to feel the benefits of Shakeology, I believe that you should consistently drink if for at least 2 weeks.  Second, there isn't much time until Christmas!  I want to provide you with a place to go that will help you stay healthy and even find some new holiday recipes for you and your family!  Finally, I look at this as a mini health and fitness support group.  Typically, my groups run either 30 or 60 days.  By doing a 14 day group, you will have a first hand sneak peek into how these groups run.  Then, you will be able to make the decision as to whether you want to make the full commitment into my 60 day group that will begin on January 6, 2014.

Here are the details:
1. The group begins on Monday, December 9, 2013.

2.  Get on Shakeology Home Direct (HD = get yourself free shipping).  Also, there is a 30 day  money  back guarantee.  So, if for any reason you do not like Shakeology, or it doesn't work for you, then return for a full refund! If you sign up for HD but want to try the other flavors, I will provide you with a free sample of any flavor you'd like.  Seriously, what do you have to lose?!  Oh, and how about I throw in $10 cash back too?! 

OR

You can purchase a 14-day supply of Shakeology in either Chocolate, Vanilla, Greenberry, Chocolate Vegan, Tropical Strawberry, or a  combination of the 6 by creating a FREE BEACHBODY ACCOUNT and sending $75 to lisamariedecker@yahoo.com via PayPal.  Then, I will put your 14-day Shakeology Package in the mail so you are ready for the group.  You can also email me regarding payment.  If you are local, we can meet, or if you would prefer to send me a check that would be fine as well. 

3. Commit to replacing just ONE meal per day with your favorite Shakeology recipe.

Check out some of these delicious recipes for Chocolate!  You can also find yummy recipes for all other flavors under the Clean Eating Recipes tab, then Fabulous Shakeology Recipes.
  
4. Press play at least 4 to 6 times a week and CHALLENGE yourself!  Don't just go through the motions.  If it's your first time doing a workout, try to up the weights, do extra reps, or slow down your repetitions.   If you are new to fitness, then I challenge you to do some form of physical activity at least 3-4 times per week, or continue with the fitness routine that you are currently doing (you could try to up the intensity).  If you would like more information on picking out a fitness program that will meet your needs and ability level, I can help you get started with that as well. 

5. Either at kick off or at the end of the 14 day program, do the 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse.  For me, I plan to do this beginning December 26.  The 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse is optional.  You do not have to do this.

6. Once making your purchase, you will be added to the 14 Days of Christmas Shakeology Shake Off closed Facebook group where you can post your success (so we can celebrate), questions (so you can be successful), tips (if you have them to share with the group) and any  feelings that may come during the challenge period. 

7. Check into the group page as often as you can.  I am not going to set any daily requirements, but by posting AT LEAST 3 times a week, you will be entered into a drawing to win some end of challenge prizes!

As a participant AND my customer in the 14 Days of Christmas Shakeology Shake Off, I will assure you success in feeling better about your nutrition selections and helping you establish realistic expectations and a strategy to get there (success will only come with YOUR commitment to change bad habits).  I will also share with you how and what I eat to keep my energy up and sustain my weight through tools available as a Team Beachbody community member.

It's not rocket science or a deprivation of foods and taste, but more of learning to make smart choices, with which, in my opinion, really clicked as I had Shakeology as my staple in my diet. 



OK, let's talk about PRIZES!!
If you stay within the 14 day period, there are some prizes in store!  Here is how staying motivated can win you some free stuff:
  • When the challenge begins, check in as often as you can.  Although there are no daily requirements as for posting, I ask that you check in and post on the group page at least 3 times during the 14 days. 
  • At the end of the 14 Days, for anyone still active and successful, I will select 2 winners, AT RANDOM, to receive another special gift.  In order to qualify, you must have stayed on Shakeology Home Direct or you have gone ahead and placed a new order for Shakeology Home Direct (for the 14 day packet buyers only), posted in the group page, pushed play, etc.
