I am glad you think so! I feel it is so much more important to get your MIND where it ought to be than your body. In the end, cultivating a positive mindset and slowly working toward happiness will help every aspect of your life, fitness included. I was always a hard worker, but I used to give up all the time because I disliked my world. I had to start thinking differently. Even when things around you can be difficult, trying your best to think of the few good things that happened in your day lead to an overall happier experience. Eventually this becomes second nature and you no longer have to actively think happy to be happy.
As for Shakeology, no I used it to supplement my diet, but I worked out quite a bit as well. When I could not afford other good food and vitamins, having my shakeology, though pricey, was a way I could get EVERYTHING I needed in one serving. They definitely don’t skimp on the ingredients and the CEO of the company has even been asked why he doesn’t cut corners to make the product cheaper, but he stands by quality. The vast majority of diet shakes/meal replacement shakes on the market are loaded with refined sugars and processed goods and chemicals that are all bad for you. This is why I like shakeology. It may be pricey, but as an aromatherapist, I know the importance of having oils and even foods, in their pure form. There are so many great healing qualities to food and essential oils when they are pure, but as soon as you add processing and chemicals, you negate any good effects the materials would have originally had for the mind and body.
I workout everyday for 15 minutes at the very least. My rest days are usually just a casual walk, mild stretching or yoga. Most days I workout for at least 45 minutes to an hour and sometimes more. Just depends on the day. I also have off days on occasion where I just am not feeling it and don’t workout at all. You just need to pick yourself up the next day and keep going! Scheduling workouts into your day, even if it is only 15 minutes, is a great way to keep yourself accountable and giving yourself no room for excuse. :)
