Many of you know that I am currently in the middle of the INSANITY program (same guys that did P90X). The workouts are great and I am starting to see changes, but at the end of the workouts they always say to "Go Drink Your Skakeology Drink Now" So, I decided to try it. According to ShakeologyNutrition.com, "...whether you’re looking to lose weight, gain weight, or simply eat healthier, this patent-pending daily nutritional shake gently eliminates harmful toxins and dramatically improves the absorption of essential nutrients your body needs. Consisting of a proprietary blend of prebiotics and digestive enzymes, Shakeology helps your body to progressively eliminate the toxins that build up over time due to a diet that is high in processed foods. At the same time, Shakeology’s whole-food ingredients deliver the essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids required by your body to curb cravings. Drinking delicious Shakeology shakes will also improve your body’s ability to shed stored fat while the more than 20 different phytonutrients and antioxidants help in reducing free radical damage — a major culprit when it comes to things like high blood pressure, heart disease, heart attacks, and stroke." Ok. Not sure about all of that. But, it is made with TONS of fruits and veggies and does not contain artificial colors or sweeteners. I tried to buy it on Amazon, but they only had the P90X formula. The only place I could find it was through TeamBeachbody.com and it is UBER expensive. I only purchased one bag. I gave it a try this week as a meal replacement for lunch and I have to say the taste is great (better than most replacement drinks),I was not hungry, and I did lose a couple of pounds. I highly recommend it if you have the budget for it. We do not, so I will just have to go back to eating my regular fruits and veggies once this is gone. Remember to always consult your doctor before making any changes to your diet especially if you have existing health problems! ************************************** Family Health and Nutrition does not endorse Shakeology nor do we recommend it as a way to prevent, treat or cure any disease.

Here are a few tips on picking the perfect tree for your holiday:Permalink -- click for full blog post "Tips On Choosing and Caring For a Live Christmas Tree"

I have always beena big advocate of using natural cleaners in my home like Seventh Generation and Mrs. Meyers. But, since we have been trying to trim our budget lately, I have decided to try some homemade cleaners. I have bamboo floors that need mopped regularly!! So, I did a little research and found this great recipe for hardwood floor cleaner that only requires white vinegar and water. And it workd GREAT! Remember to follow the instructions and test a small portion of your floor first to be sure it won't damage them!Permalink -- click for full blog post "It's WE TRIED IT! Friday. This Week: Homemade Hardwood Floor Cleaner"
Journal Entry from Day 3 of my Lemonade Cleanse: ****************************** I feel "silent" inside. I weird thing to say, but it is as if my body is more calm. Very strange. The drink is starting to get a bit boring. Same thing six or seven times a day. My tongue is a little tired of the taste. I have added lime juice for a bit of variety. I have lost a couple of pounds and do have more energy though. I am hoping to break some bad habits like coffee during this cleanse! Let's hope it works!! ************************************* Family Health and Nutrition does not endorse the Master Cleanse, offer this as medical advice nor do we recommend the Master Cleanse for personal use.

Journal Entry from my second day of the Master Cleanse: ******************************** Day 2 has actually been easier! Yesterday I really struggled with hunger. But, today I feel more in control and actually have some energy. I just wish I didn't have to think about food so much as a mommy! I have been drinking it hot like an herbal tea since it is cold outside and makes me feel like I am drinking my morning coffee. (Mind games, I guess!!) I lost one pound yesterday, but I am sure that was just water. Hopefully, the hunger will lessen even more tomorrow. ******************************* Family Health and Nutrition does not endorse the Master Cleanse, offer this as medical advice nor do we recommend the Master Cleanse for personal use.

I have been wanting to share my experience with the MASTER CLEANSE for weeks now, but I have been fighting with youtube and my computer for weeks now with no results. I will try and post a few videos of my cleanse on Facebook if nothing else. But, I wanted to share my journal with you anyway! For those of you not familiar with the MASTER CLEANSE or LEMONADE DIET, I have included a link that explains the whole thing. (BTW- This link is the most hilarious and honest look at the MAster Cleanse I have seen!) I did the cleanse for only 4 days. Too hard with having to grocery shop, fix meals and everything else for the family! I would like to attempt it again next spring for the full ten days. ANyway, here is my journal entry from the day before the cleanse: *************************************** "Today I gathered all the ingredients for my cleanse! Got organic lemons and limes, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and the herbal laxative. I have only been eating fruits and veggies for the last two days in prep for the cleanse. I am excited and a little nervous. These cleases always challenge me mentally! I started today at 126 lbs. Tonight I drink my first cup of herbal tea and begin tomorrow!!" *********************************** Remember, this is for entertainment purposes only. This is not medical advice.
