Time flies when you having a good time! Or, time flies when you’re so busy I don’t know which. Workout buddies are getting into shape and looking good and feeling good.
This is an inspiring story about a 69 year old grandmother that lost 30 pounds on Shakeology and “The Workout” that comes with Shakeology. Shakeology is the chocolate dessert and nutrients that I take every day to keep my weight off. If you can do this at 69 you can do at your age.
“Going on 70 and able to perform the workouts is my greatest achievement along with keeping up with my twin grandchildren with all their activities.”
How did you feel about yourself and your body before exercise and Shakeology?
As a caretaker for my Aunt and then babysitting for twin grandchildren, I had very little time for myself and allowed myself to put on more and more weight and overall felt very tired and exhasted at the end of the day. I wasn't even thinking about the terrible foods I was eating.
What inspired you to change?
My son lost over 50 lbs with P90x and Shakeology. My daughter in-law also started with Slim 6 and Shakeology, lost weight and really toned up. So I wanted in on that action.
Why did you choose the particular program?
Shakeology is a great way to start when you are questioning your fitness capabilities. P90x looked too extreme to this grandmother, and even Slim 6 was too much. So I found out that Shakeology included some workouts and my thought was to clean up my nutrition, and introduce work out programs that I could handle.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
There really isn't an easier way to start losing weight and eating healthier then by using Shakeology as a meal replacement once a day. The work out programs included allowed me to start at my level and once I completed the 30 DVD, I then moved up to the 50 DVD. I really love those programs and love Shakeology even more.
What was your biggest challenge?
I fractured my foot and had to wear a protective foot boot and which really hampered my physical activity. It was at that time that I started Shakeology and realized that I could in fact start to lose weigh even thought my physical activity was not where I wanted it.
What achievements are you proud of?
I lost over 35 lbs with Shakeology and I love it! I'm also ready now to come off my HBP and Cholesterol medication! And I'm now fitting in dress sizes that I haven't been able to do since the 80's! Going on 70 and able to perform the workouts is my greatest achievement along with keeping up with my twin grandchildren with all their activities. I use to sit back and watch them as they rode the rides at our local amusement part Kings Island. But now I run around the park with them participating in all rides and activities! I've also joined a local silver Sneaker class and happy to report I'm running circles around them!!
I’m keeping up my running three times a week and working out on Teambeachbody, P90X, and at least three times a week.
This past two weeks I have been injured so the running came to a halt. The workout schedule was up to 40 miles a week until one day a sharp pain came to my calf muscle that felt like a knife just stab it. It was even painful walking around for at least a day. I took off a couple of days of running but kept up the ab ripper (P90X) without standing and jumping, and did some upper body work as well. I got out that elastic tube for leg strength workouts that I learned from P90X and applied more exercises. For cardio I had to do something so I got on the bike and rode miles. My goal is to run the ½ marathon but with it being so close to race day and lack of running training I am running the 5K. I am very competitive with myself and I push very hard. I am just happy to work out and feel good at this time. Keep striving and stay on track as much as possible and it will all come together for you.
To your health,
