My “WHY” for drinking Shakeology ever single day (and I will never stop)….
We need our bodies.
I have always been a health conscious person. I enjoy exercise and I enjoy healthy food! However, I have definitely gone through stages where I thought low fat yogurt and multigrain cheerios were healthy staples in my diet! I have always loved baking and sweets – and honestly still struggle with my cravings for sugar. There is no doubt in my mind that sugar is one of the most addictive drugs out there! I also had that mindset that if I exercised, I could eat whatever I wanted.
Lately I have been working a lot on learning how the food I put into my body effects the way it performs, and essentially affects how long I am on this earth and how well my time here is spent.
I do not want to view my nutrition as a “diet”, and that I cannot eat certain foods because they are “bad”! I do not want to live in a “I can’t have this” sort of way! That is such a negative way to view food, which is the fuel our bodies need! This sets us up to have a terrible relationship with food, which I’ve suffered with the majority of my life!
I want to view my nutrition in a way that I WANT to eat certain foods because I WANT to help my body and give it what it needs. I want to create a healthy relationship with food – and not have it always be the “thing” I am thinking and worrying about!
I have struggled with mono, anorexia, depression & anxiety – and at age 23 was diagnosed with a slew of hormone problems that put me in and out of menopause, the reason for my infertility and eventually caused me to have a total hysterectomy at age 33. I do take medication for my anxiety as it’s something that I’ve dealt with my entire life and I’m currently on hormone replacement therapy – but, without the proper nutrition, I feel worse! We live in a country that immediately asks, “What pill can help me with this?” – when really; many conditions can be helped with a change in nutrition (if you are willing to put in the effort).
I am MOST DEFINITELY willing to put in the effort! I want to have healthy skin, feel energized, avoid future illnesses, and treat my body good so that it treats me good back!
Over the past year I have made some amazing changes in my diet! I stopped taking a bunch of supplements that I thought were helping me: fish oils etc. I replaced my breakfast with Shakeology (which had all these supplements in it already – in a better form that my body could absorb)! And thank gosh, those supplements were expensive! I also have eliminated dairy and gluten due to discomfort.
I encourage you to take the body you have seriously! I mean…. without it, you would not be alive, right? You only have 1. You need your body. Take the time to learn and figure out what works for your body and how you can treat it the way it needs so it will treat you good back!:)
