Shakeology Cleanse Challenge

28 12 2010

Okay, the New Year is approaching fast so it’s time to start things off on the right foot! I am a firm believer that diet is over half the battle when it comes to weight loss success.  So, I want to kick it off with a 3 day cleanse (with a few prizes) and follow it up with a fitness challenge….a little friendly competition just to make it fun:)

The Shakeology Cleanse is meant to jump start you in your fitness goals, break a plateau, or shred pounds fast & effectively in a HEALTHY way. It will rid you of all the bloating, cravings that have taken over, rebalance your hydration levels (which play more into weight loss than you realize) and reenergize you.  Just an overall AWESOME way to kick off the New Year and make this the year you reach your fitness goals.

No, this isn’t a quick fix…I don’t believe in those.  But, we all do get off track sometimes.  And, some just need that little jump-start to get started in the right direction. I get that. It’s amazing how the more junk you eat, the more you crave it.  So, I do believe this is a safe way to reset your mind, reset your body, and refocus on living and eating healthy.

So, are you in or are you out? All you have to do is order your Shakeology from the coach that sent this to you.   Once it is ordered, he or she will send me your name and you will be entered in for the prizes.  Don’t worry if you are a little skeptical…I was too at first.   So if you need a little more info please visit the blog post I wrote about it… What’s up with the Shakeology Cleanse?

Still have questions…don’t hesitate to contact me (

When: Any 3 consecutive days between January 1st and the 15th.  All final weights must be in by the 15th:)

How do you win? Send your starting weight to the coach that invited you to the challenge (totally confidential).  Your starting weight should be weighed the morning of Day 1 as soon as you wake up.  Weigh in each morning and visit our Facebook fan page  at to share your challenges, keep each other motivated and celebrate as the number on the scale goes down….believe me, it will!  Then, the morning after Day 3, you will do your final weigh in.  Again, it should be in the morning, as soon as you wake up, and on the same scale. Report this number to your coach!

Prizes…A Shakeology shirt will go to a random Cleanse Challenger (pulled from a hat) and then the Challenger who lost the highest percentage of body weight over the 3 day cleanse will win a program to get them started on the fitness challenge.

Details on the 3 Day Shakeology Cleanse:

Start your day with a cup of green tea. If coffee is the deal breaker than drink it.  However, leave out all cream and sugar.  NO DAIRY for the 3 days…or rice milk or almond milk!  Good ol fashion water will doJ

  • Breakfast: Shakeology with water and ice. (adding a 1/2 cup of fruit is optional…I
  • didn’t).
  • Snack: 1 piece of fruit.
  • Lunch: Shakeology- water and ice only followed by a cup of green tea
  • Snack: Shakeology with water and ice only.  Sometimes I like to save this snack for
  • after dinner
  • Dinner: 4 oz of grilled white fish or poultry with a dinner salad loaded with veggies.
  • Use 2 oz of dressing but stick with the olive oil or balsamic vinegar dressing

Shakeology Cleanse FAQ’s

How many calories will I be getting a day?

  • 800-1200 calories per day

How often can I do the Shakeology Cleanse?

  • Ideally you shouldn’t do the cleanse more than once every 3 months, or so. Remember, it’s not a quick fix to an unhealthy lifestyle.  It is to help you regroup and get you back on track, or help you break through a plateau.

Can I still do my workouts during the Shakeology Cleanse?

  • Light to moderate exercise should be okay.  Listen to your body.
  • I try to do mine during a recovery week or before I start another round or a new program.
