It Seems Great, But Shakeology is Too Expensive! What Else Can I Use?

By Coach Jimmy Hays Nelson If you have been visiting my blog for any length of time, it is no secret that I love my Shakeology!  But that hasn’t always been the case.  When Shakeology came on the market, I already had success with P90X and was a cast member in Shaun T’s INSANITY DVD series.  I initially thought Shakeology was just another protein meal replacement shake, and an expensive one at that! $120 for a bag?  Are these people nuts???  As a struggling actor living in NYC, it just didn’t seem like an expense I could take on. That was before I educated myself on what makes Shakeology different than the $19 tub of whey protein I can get at the grocery store. Fortunately, Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler is a friend of mine.

Fitting In Fitness – Diary of a New Dad. Simple Ways for Busy People to Get In Shape and Live Healthy Life.

In my first couple weeks of being a Dad, I am finding that my normal schedule is most definitely being ‘adjusted’.  Sleep schedules, feedings, diaper changes, & just wanting to put the world on hold to spend time with my new little man are all variables that didn’t exist in my daily “24 hours” a month ago.  Like with any new ‘life situation’, if something new is introduced, the things that were already scheduled out have to get rearranged, tapered down, or eliminated all together.   As someone who has lost 80 pounds, and now a health/fitness Coach to others, my workouts are a vital part of my daily routine.  Not only to maintain my fitness level, but I find mentally and emotionally I am a better husband, worker, friend, encourager…and now father on the days I invest in doing some kind of workout.  The closer the day came to…
