My Fitness Pal Tricks (you may not know about)

I have been utilizing My Fitness Pal (MFP) since September of 2010 to track my food and control my macros. This has become a "second nature" thing for me to do but yet it can be tedious and I find myself often thinking "man, I am SO TIRED of tracking my food". I not only track but I double check nutritional information against packaging because so many people "cheat" by leaving out things like sodium, fat, carbohydrates ... You can't get an accurate picture of the food you're eating by relying on other people's data entry so I go that extra step ... Well I JUST RECENTLY figured out a VERY USEFUL and time saving tool!

Restored Faith in Humanity

Actor Misha Collins puts on an event for charity, Random Acts. For the past 2 years he has sponsored the  or G.I.S.H.W.H.E.S. Last year I started seeing activity with the hashtag #GISHWHES and read up on it. Of course it was too late to get involved but I thought that maybe this was something I would like to get involved in the following year (this year). Well I did ... and it was a blast.

Welcome to the world of Facebook

I was hesitant to do it as I've never done it before ... but I took the dive and plunged right in to the world of Facebook Community pages!

I have created a "Like" page and it would be SUPER AWESOME if you all jumped over there to "Like" it. I will still be blogging (how can I not I LOVE blogging) but I will be posting information on upcoming Challenge Groups as well as Giveaways and other things more often on there.

It's an easy one to remember too! Ditch Your Diet, Lose That Weight snappy eh?

The Newest Flavor in the Shakeology Family ... INTRODUCING Vanilla Shakeology!

Screen Shot 2013-07-29 at 11.10.35 PMIntroducing, the newest flavor of Shakeology® and creamy VANILLA!Ever since Shakeology's inception, customers have been begging us to create a Vanilla Shakeology.And while there was a rumor swirling around that we’d never make a Vanilla, we really just refused to compromise the integrity of Shakeology by using an inferior Vanilla or one where we would have to add additional artificial flavors or ingredients to achieve that delicious vanilla taste.Where do these prized vanilla beanscome from?We finally found a source in the lush jungles of Madagascar—an island off the southeastern coast of Africa. Malagasy farmers meticulously hand-pollinate delicate vanilla orchids and harvest the beans.Over the course of several months, the beans are blanched, sweated, sun-dried, and conditioned, which releases their robust flavors. By using these particular beans, we can be sure of their traceablilty, as well as the fact that they are being sourced in an ethical and sustainable way.Watch this video about Vanilla Shakeology:Vanilla Shakeology®ShakeologyOrderOrder Vanilla Shakeology today:Enjoy healthy nutrition RISK FREE for 30 dayswith our Bottom-of-the-Bag GuaranteeIf you don't feel healthier, more energized, and simply amazing, you won't pay.

Some exciting promotions coming and ..

August is upon us. We are at the heading toward the end of Summer but moving quickly toward the Holidays. Stay tuned to how you can keep ahead of the game during the holiday crunch and manage to keep off the weight you've already lost.

August is also a GREAT TIME to start a workout regime. Getting into healthy habits BEFORE the holidays will help with the temptation of the holiday and all the eating that goes along with it.

In the next few days I will be posting a couple of programs that can help YOU get into holiday fighting shape!

I am also going to be changing the look of the blog ... so don't freak out when you see the changes ;)
