Back to School and Shakeology Specials

Please forgive me for being away so long.  This has been an unusual year.  

The death of my best friend from high school, Jo Ann, and the trip to Portland, Oregon, in January was difficult both physically and emotionally.  Even though I know we’ll be reunited again in heaven, she was too young to leave those of us who knew her and loved her, and knowing that she had only lost her husband, Dan, a little over a year before, we mourned with their daughter Kimberly in the loss of both of her parents at the young age of 25.  She was, however, a strong warrior, and we laughed in the midst of our tears as we shared our memories.

My mom lost her brother-in-law in February, almost a month to the day of Jo Ann’s funeral.  And as soon as we left Louisiana and I arrived back home in Frisco, I was hit with an awful sinus infection that turned into bronchitis – so there went March.  I literally never left my house until Easter Sunday; having rheumatoid arthritis makes a small illness sometimes explode into something so much more.

Wedding plans are well underway at our house too with Meg’s wedding in December in Memphis.  Praise the Lord, all my children will be married and settled by the end of the year!


Now . . . for the Shakeology® Specials:

I’ve missed seeing orders from many of you.  I hope you’re still drinking Shakeology® and working out. I know summer can be very busy, but with 4 months left in the year, you still have time to get in “tip top” shape and look your very best for the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays!


Until August 31, 2017 . . .

Monday Motivation – snacking

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I miss eating something “crunchy.”  So what are good HEALTHY snacks?  

  • 12 roasted, lightly salted almonds
  • 10 mini carrots
  • 6 mini carrots
  • KALE chips!

What?  You’ve never tried Kale chips?  I LOVE them, and they are so easy to make!  Kale is very inexpensive (usually around $1.00 for a bunch at most grocery stores).  Buy a bunch (or two – if you have children, they’ll love them).  

  • Pull the leaves off the kale stems, wash them, and let them dry very well.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.img_3677
  • Put the kale in a large bowl; shake on a little olive oil and some sea salt. (Careful with the salt or you’ll make it too salty)
  • Place the kale pieces on a baking sheet that you have sprayed with Pam (or some other baking spray).
  • Cook the kale for 12 to 15 minutes.  I like mine a little browner and crisper, so I cook for 15 minutes.
  • Dry on a paper towel.  
  • Store in a ziplock bag (if you and your family don’t eat them all first!)img_3680

I’ve missed you . . .

I’m sorry that I’ve been away from the blog for a few months, but life has really been busy. The photo above is from my 40th high school reunion. Yes, 40 years!  I spent almost every other weekend traveling the 275 miles to and from Frisco, Texas, to Ruston, Louisiana, to help some of my classmates prepare for the reunion.  

My parents both celebrated birthdays in late August – my dad’s 86th and my mom’s 82nd.  On our second trip to Ruston for reunion planning, September 28, my dad had a minor heart attack.  He had a heart catherization done about two years ago, and the doctor and surgeon determined that he had 100% blockage in several areas of his heart. Because of his age and his type 2 diabetes, surgery would be risky.  About six weeks later, he had another minor attack, but at this point his management routine is to take nitro glycerin.  If he reaches 3 nitro glycerin tablets, he must go to the hospital.

It’s difficult to find classmates since we haven’t had a reunion in 20 years, so we were pleased with the turn out, and we’re ready to see each other again soon!  We had so much fun, enjoying one another’s company, dancing to the songs of the 70’s, and laughing about our aching knees and knee replacements.

We also had some EXCITING happenings in October.  Our middle daughter, Meg, became engaged to a wonderful young man, Charles Webster!  We all LOVE Charles, and the wedding planning has now begun! November 4, 2017, will be an exciting day for the Malone and Webster families! 

Enough about me . . . 

Finally, if you’re like me, I’m trying to get some Christmas shopping done now, and a Beachbody® workout, a membership to Team Beachbody®, or Shakeology® might be a great gift for a family member or even a gift to yourself!  Everyone starts the new year with resolutions, and 99.9% of the time, most people don’t keep those resolutions.

Here are the Beachbody November Specials:

Let’s Talk about sugar . . .

<a href="https://gritsandpearls.com/2016/08/15/lets-talk-about-sugar/“>https://gritsandpearls.com/2016/08/15/lets-talk-about-sugar/

The Sugar in Shakeology

(by Shea Stanford, certified nutritionist)

Critics sometimes raise questions about Shakeology® and it’s nutritional value. One of the most common questions skeptics (and prospective users) have when they read the label is, “Why “so much” sugar?”

HOW MUCH SUGAR A DAY?

So, what’s up with that? There are six grams of sugar in a single serving of Shakeology®. For a nutritional meal, that may sound like a lot.  But let’s break down what we are comparing and the type of sugar we are talking about.

Screen-Shot-2015-04-02-at-2.09.44-PM

An apple has 23 grams of sugar…and, Shakeology® has 6.

The American Heart Association recommends that women should consume no more than six teaspoons (24 grams) of sugar per day, and men should keep their sugar intake down to nine (36 grams) teaspoons or less.  Four grams of sugar is equal to one teaspoon.

KINDS of SUGAR

There’s a significant difference between the sugar found in Shakeology® and the kind found in that sprinkled doughnut you may be thinking about.    Dr William Coda Martin defines refined sugar as the “sweetest poison of all”.  Refined sugar is different than natural sugar.  Shakeology® contains no refined sugar.  It’s consists of a natural sweetener blend of non-GMO fructose and stevia.  Steve Edwards, Beachbody Director of Results and Fitness Advisor, says, “Fructose is a natural sweetener from fruit.” He explains that the original goal for Shakeology® was to create a vegan formula that was sugar free. However, to meet up with necessary taste requirements, a combination of natural sweeteners had to be negotiated.

Derived from beets, the non-GMO fructose has a low glycemic index and works in the formulation as a transport vehicle for the nutrients and for taste, says Edwards. This is unlike glucose sucrose (table sugar) or high-fructose corn syrup (chemically altered sugar). The sugar found in Shakeology® is sent directly to the liver for absorption, minimizing the impact on insulin and blood sugar levels. It’s processed cleanly in GMP-certified (Good Manufacturing Practice) facilities and doesn’t affect your body negatively the way other sugars do. The Westin Price Foundations suggests replacing refined sugar with natural sugar:

“Get in the habit of reading labels and avoid products made with white sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, sucrose, dextrose, and ALL artificial sweeteners. Instead use natural sweeteners, including pure maple syrup, molasses, stevia, Rapadura (dehydrated cane sugar juice), brown or green stevia or raw unfiltered honey. Many health food stores offer products made with natural sweeteners, like cookies and ice cream, and even licorice, although it is better to make your own. ”

Oh OK!  I get it now!  But what about OTHER shakes?
In comparison to other shakes that may read ZERO sugar:  How do you think they are achieving that?

YES!—>  Artificial sweeteners and chemicals.  And those are big health no-nos.  Here’s why.

I promote questioning the ingredients found in Shakeology® AS WELL AS any other food, for that matter, especially the sugar content. Label readers know to look for unsuspected sugar as ingredients in all sorts of food ranging from “unsweetened” orange juice to pasta sauces to soda to “healthy” granola or breakfast cereals. Not only do foods high in added sugars fail to have nutrients your body needs, but they also contain empty calories that are counterproductive to your goals. Additionally, getting too much sugar can significantly increase your risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, according to a study reported by the American Heart Association. It’s only natural to want to make sure that a product you’re considering isn’t full of added sugars.

Diabetics certainly need to know about the quality and amount of sugar contained in Shakeology® and other products they are considering for their fitness journeys. Shakeology has a very low glycemic index- meaning what is in it, is not going to spike their sugar levels. Many diabetics drink Shakeology® daily, they attest to the fact that the low glycemic index of the sugar contained in Shakeology® does not negatively affect their health.

Remember that while the sugars in Shakeology® are naturally-occurring and combined with natural brown stevia, your shake might contain more sweeteners than you suspect. When you add milk (especially the whole variety) or rice milk to your shake, you will seriously increase the sugar levels in your daily dose of nutrition.   Hey we can all get carried away with adding too much fruit and creamy milk!

As long as you follow the guidelines suggested for mixing up your dense daily dose of health, you are well within safe levels of sugar intake. Shakeology® is not a sugar-laden shake to take lightly — it’s serious nutrition derived from whole foods and natural ingredients. It is NOT chocked full of unnecessary added sugars. It’s NOT made with high-fructose corn syrup. And, it’s not going to throw you into insulin overload due to its sweetener content.

Rhonda’s Comments . . .

So, what DOES Shakeology® contain?  Superfoods!  Most “Protein” shakes that you find in Walmart, Costco, Sam’s, GNC, etc. are simply Whey Protein.  They’ll just add weight and make you feel less hungry, but they don’t contain the nutritional value of Shakeology®.   

Shakeology_TropStrawBag_012816_Web (1)

(This is from the ingredient list for Strawberry Tropical Vegan Shakeology®.  Other flavors contain very similar ingredients, and calorie counts vary from 130 to 170 calories.) 

Because many of these ingredients are found all over the world in the areas where they grow best, they deliver the BEST results!

Why the cost?  $130 for a 30-serving bag?  That amounts to $4.00 per shake or $4.00 per meal!  One shake is typically 56 to 72 oz.!  What you purchase from Walmart or wherever, may cost less, but how many shakes does it deliver for you?  Probably 15. One-half a month.

When you buy food at Sam’s and Costco, don’t you buy larger bags, knowing that your family will eat it over several months.  We might buy a huge roast and cut it into four smaller roasts that we’ll freeze for later.  Also, ask yourself, how much food do you throw away every week or every month?  How much food spoils in your refrigerator, cabinet, or freezer?  Probably more than you realize.  John and I don’t throw away much food anymore.

August Challenge Packs

Don’t the Summer Olympics excite you?  I love watching every minute of almost every sport, and they truly make me want to be more consistent in my health and fitness!  How about you?  This month, Beachbody has 15 Challenge Packs available, so there is something for EVERYONE!

First, if you haven’t tried Shakeology, let me encourage you to try it.  John and I have been cleaning closets and purging, and I actually ran across an invoice from Beachbody that was dated 2012.  I can’t believe that I’ve been drinking Shakeology for 4 years!  Shakeology and Beachbody fitness programs really work, but you must be CONSISTENT.  Choose a meal that you want to replace (I chose lunch because teachers don’t have much time to eat), but supper might be good for you if a light meal before bed helps you sleep or if you know you’ll have a “working lunch.”  Now that Café Latté Shakeology has been introduced, I drink it most mornings for breakfast.  I use black coffee instead of water, add some ice, add some caramel or vanilla flavoring, and I’ve made a 150-calorie Starbucks without ever leaving home! 

I’m going to list the Challenge Packs and links below.  Most of them have been on sale before, so if you’ll click on the link, you can see the entire package.  You can always email me at jmalone5@aol.com if you have any questions.  I’ve already ordered my Country Heat Challenge Pack; it’s going to be so much fun!

7418_Challenge-Pack-August

I’m a little late getting this month’s update to you because we were visiting my parents in Louisiana this past weekend, and my dad had a mild heart attack.  He will be 86 at the end of August, and my mother will be 82.  They are both still living in their home, without help, but both have illnesses that limit them.  Dad has some areas of heart blockage of 100% plus severe diabetes, which limits his heart surgery options.  Mother was recently diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, which I think she has had for quite some time.  Diabetes runs back through at least 3 generations of my daddy’s family, and RA has affected at least two of my mother’s sisters (and me).  That’s why health and fitness is so important to me.  My daddy and all of his brothers were healthy, young men, well-known in Louisiana coaching and education circles, yet all of them inherited the diabetes gene, and we are seeing it in my generation as me and many of my cousins reach our 50s and 60s.  Taking care of yourself should not be about EXCUSES.  Make the decision today to change! smallsteps

BOD streams Beachbody’s best workouts on the internet, so you can workout whenever and wherever you want.  Currently, there are more than 44 programs available through Beachbody on Demand!  When a new program is released, you have the option to “digitally unlock” that program, which is 50% less than the cost of purchasing the DVDs.  The current library just recently added Focus T25 and The Master’s Hammer and Chisel to other well-known workouts like P90X, Insanity, Hip-Hop Abs, Turbo Jam, Brazil Butt Lift, and many more.  Check out this video for more information: BOD .  Beachbody on Demand is also great for those individuals who love a great workout, but aren’t interested in Shakeology!

Now, you have 3 new options for payment:

  1. When you purchase a Challenge Pack*, you typically receive a FREE 30-day trial of Beachbody on Demand, followed by a 90-day membership.  You are billed $38.87 (or $13 a month) for that 90-day membership every 90 days.
  2. You can now PRE-PAY $59.97 (or $10 a month) for a 6-month membership.  (If you aren’t satisfied, Beachbody provides a 30-day money back guarantee.)
  3. You can also now PRE-PAY $99.95 (or $8.50) for a 12-month membership!  How many gyms offer UNLIMITED workouts for that price?

*Challenge Pack purchases will still provide the free trial, followed by a 90-day membership.  If you wish to upgrade to a 6-month or 12-month membership, you can do this by visiting BODMembershipChange.com at least 3 days before your free trial is over.

  • You will have 4 days after receiving the email to make changes to your order, such as:

Traveling with Shakeology

My Shakeology® goes everywhere I go!  I just returned from my sixth year at the AP English© Literature Reading in Louisville, Kentucky, and for the past three years, I have substituted at least one shake a day for the lunch thshaketraveley provide.  Since the Convention Center is cooking for THOUSANDS (yes, thousands) of high school teachers and college professors, the meals are typically pretty carb heavy, which would put me to sleep in the afternoons, I’m sure!

This year, Café Latté was my “go-to” breakfast.  I would take a cinnamon or caramel Café Latté  with me and also eat some protein for breakfast.  Then, I would decide whether the lunch menu or dinner menu was within my meal choices.  Our hotel was only two blocks away, so a quick walk would take me back to my room, allow me time to mix a shake, to rest a little, and then to walk back to our reading room.  

I love my immersion blender!  I take the individual packets and a few “mix-ins,” and use water (couldn’t find my Almond Milk at the local CVS), ice, and whatever fruit I might find at snack time.  You don’t have to take a Shakeology® break just because it’s vacation!  If you’re interested in a “sample” of Strawberry, Vanilla, Chocolate, or Café Latté, send me a message, and I’ll tell you how to get one.
