Chocolate!!

You know those days when you want to just devour a King Size Snickers?!  Maybe a never-ending handful of M&Ms?!

Today was THAT day for me!  Thank goodness I try not to keep those temptations in our house because they would be long gone!

I decided to make these beauties instead!  They are a perfect little snack anytime, but especially when those sweets cravings are hitting hard!

Sweet tooth= satisfied

I’m on day 3 of the 21 Day Fix Extreme and I have to admit that it’s the hardest.  My body is still wanting some of the sugars that it’s been missing.  There are times when I just want to devour every salty and sweet snack in sight!

Well, I didn’t start this program just to quit!  I decided to take the healthier route and make a dessert that would not only solve my sweet tooth issue, but also provide some superfood goodness!  Easy and DELICIOUS!

Chocolate Shakeology Pie

Mix together the following ingredients:

1 1/2 cups of plain Greek Yogurt

1 scoops of Chocolate Shakeology

1/2 cup of all-natural peanut butter (I actually mixed up some PB2 ahead to get the amount I needed)

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 whole wheat graham pie crust

But it’s SO expensive…

Shakeology-Flavors

The most common objection that I get as a coach is that the products are just “so expensive”!  Yup, I thought the SAME THING!  I started as a Shakeology customer about 2 years ago and ended up cancelling my home direct shipments because I just couldn’t justify the extra expense.  I loved the way that I felt while drinking it and it solved my problem with never making time for breakfast in the mornings before work.  I finally signed up as a “discount coach” because I loved the products and just wanted to save some cash.  Well, I’m here to tell you now that there is actually a way to have these products SAVE you money!

So let’s think about our lives for a second…

I know that all of us can trim the fat somewhere.  I know that I could!  Most of us have a gym membership that we don’t use as much as we should, eat out at a restaurant/order take out/eat fast food more than once a week, drive-thru Starbucks regularly, and give into those cravings that we know and love so much.  Now, I will be the first person to tell you…everything in moderation.  I’m all about enjoying a dinner out with friends or a nice cup of coffee, but there is always the element of want vs. need in finances.  Yes, it hurts sometimes to look at how we are spending!!

So let’s do a monthly breakdown:

Gym membership- $60/month 

Starbucks- $40 (2 times a week)

Bought lunch out- $40 (Once a week)

Dinners out- $40 (Twice a month)

Pizza delivery for the family because of no dinner plan- $40 (Twice a month)

Monthly total= $220

So what just happened?  We found $220 out there that we could potentially trim from our budget each month.

So how does this help in my nutrition and fitness when I trimmed out the gym membership?!

I bought my first Challenge Pack for a one-time fee of $140 which included a full month of Shakeology, a workout program and a system that helped me control my portions and eat healthier.  When I had a meal plan, I didn’t need take out and drive-thrus.  When I had Shakeology, it helps me reduce my cravings, get all of my vitamins/minerals/antioxidants/amino acids.  I didn’t think about that sugar-filled Frappuccino from Starbucks because now I could make my own at home with cold coffee and Shakeology!

$220-$140= $80 to spare!

Now here’s something even better!  If you continue getting Shakeology delivered and don’t want to continue the same workouts, you have Beachbody on Demand to choose from.  There are thousands of dollars worth of workouts at your fingertips to stream to your iPad/iPhone/computer.  It’s free for the first month then it’s $38.87/quarterly (12.95/month, $2.99/week).  I’m willing to bet that we can find $2.99 to spare in our week.

So with the $220 that we were able to trim, we can continue Shakeology ($140/month) and continue working out for $12.95/month.

$220-$140-$12.95= $67.05 to spare!
