Exercise Results...drumroll please

This post was written pre-Christmas, but man is the timing of it perfect now.  I have totally indulged in cookies, candy, ice cream, appetizers, wine, you name it over the last week.  While it tasted delicious, I am pretty sure that my waistline has suffered a bit.  Time to get back on track!

For me, this fitness journey has been as much or more about my mental health as my physical health and appearance.  I feel better about myself when I workout that makes me better in all other aspects of my life.

I don't use a scale because I don't want to be discouraged.  If I am working out everyday, eating healthier, feel stronger, and feel mentally healthier, does the number on the scale really matter??  No.  It doesn't matter at all.

That being said though, I did do the before and after picture thing and found out that I have lost some weight / toned up.  Total bonus!

Clearly I am better at working out than I am at taking selfies because the pictures are taken from different sides, with different clothes, and the one on the left is blurry.  BUT STILL, you can definitely see a difference.  How exciting!

Those results took only one month and literally all that I did was starting working out 25 minutes per day and, for the last two weeks, replaced one meal a day with Shakeology (which tastes like dessert). I made no other dietary changes because I am lazy didn't want to take on too much at one.

So, there it is.  I am telling you people, T25 and Shakeology are freakin' amazing!  

Why T25 is the bomb-dot-com (does anyone say that anymore??)
*It is ONLY 25 minutes per day.  25 minutes, people.  You can do that!
*It can be done from the comfort of your home.  Or mine.  Come on over!
*Shaun T takes his shirt off in Beta.  'Nuff said.

And what makes Shakeology amazing:
*No GMOs
*No artificial sweeteners (those are poison and most other protein shakes contain them)
*Loaded with super foods
*They taste like a chocolate milkshake and everyone loves milkshakes.
*They keep me full until lunch and that is amazing because this girl loves to eat!

As I mentioned before, I have had such success with T25 and Shakeology that I am now coaching!  I would LOVE for you to be on my team.  We can be motivation buddies, and, let's face it, EVERYONE needs someone to motivate them.  

Please message me ( if you want more details on how to try out T25 and / or Shakeology.  In the meantime, I will continue to torture you with my selfies.  ;)


  1. Those are amazing results!!! I got your email but haven't had a chance to respond. I'm definitely interested, maybe just not this next month though.

  2. Thanks, Leslie! To be fair, those pictures were taken before my weeklong holiday food binge. ;)

    I honestly didn't even realize that I had been getting physical results because I was so happy about how good I was feeling mentally and about myself overall.

    I am so excited to have you try this, even if it isn't until February. There is certainly no rush, but I do look forward to you starting. Having people around me doing it also really helps me stay motivated because I am the type of person who tends to get lazy where exercise is concerned unless I have some sort of motivation.

    Hope you had a great Christmas with sweet Violet!

  3. Holy crap! That's awesome. Good for you!

  4. Thank you so much!! It has been great for me mentally because it is the first time I have ever stuck with a fitness program.

    Sadly, the holiday binge eating has significantly cut into my progress, but I started getting back on track today. :)

  5. I have a challenge group starting in January (and one every month after), so let me know if you want to get in on the fun! Having other people with me is definitely good motivation! :)

  6. I would love that. Hook me up! (Maybe that will get me moving again.)

  7. Hey girl! Sorry for the lag time in my response. Vacation took it's toll on me. ;) Email me at so that I know how to get in touch with you and I will give you the info!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I would love to hear from you, so please take a minute to leave me any comments, suggestions, funny stories, or advice about this journey called Mommyhood.

Becky :)
