Pregnancy & Shakeology

July 2014When I found out I was pregnant I FREAKED OUT a little because it is a HUGE RESPONSIBILITY and I realized the body that I’ve been working hard to develop is no longer all mine. Now don’t get me wrong, I was SUPER HAPPY but there was also some FEAR…

See, I was on a mission to get the body I always wanted, . In order to do this I was following: (1) a Beachbody fitness program and meal plan plus (2) drinking Shakeology daily.

With this being my FIRST CHILD I wanted to remain healthy but also make sure that everything I do from this point on POSITIVELY impacted my unborn child. Yes, I was the pregnant woman who asked their doctor 50 million questions. One thing I covered with my OB/GYN is me continuing to drink Shakeology.

Shakeology is known as the “healthiest meal of the day“, but there are some people out there that think it’s just another protein shake. Boy is that a misconception. SHAKEOLOGY is made of 70 ALL NATURAL superfoods and nutrients, which can be compared to eating like seven salads…and we know there are very few people on this earth who will eat that many salads in one day.

When I found out I was pregnant I thought that they may be a slight chance that I would have to stop drinking Shakeology. I was hoping that thought was incorrect and my wish came true. After reviewing every content in the Shakeology flavors I drink daily my OB/GYN told me that I did not need to take a prenatal vitamin because Shakeology has all the nutrients in it, but I just had to take a folic acid pill because Shakeology didn’t have enough of that ingredient which is essential for the formation of the baby’s brain. After hearing my doctor tell me this along with the fact that I CAN still WORKOUT, I cried because I was SO HAPPY.

Now my Prince is super HEALTHY and very ACTIVE. Plus I am continuing my healthy living journey by working out to a Beachbody program, following the meal plan, and drinking Shakeology every day.
