BACK TO SCHOOL FITNESS TIPS FOR MOMS

fb.com_DitchTheScale-2If you’re anything like me, then your summer fitness routine was pretty much nonexistent. Not that I was sitting around or anything, quite the contrary actually. I had SO much going on, there was really no time to work out, especially since I had three shadows following me around everywhere. From vacations, to amusement park visits, to the pool we were always go go go go. This led me to not eating the very best and really having no time to myself. Well, time to get excited people. It’s back to school time! This means many hours of uninterrupted time for ME. I plan on not only using this time to work, but to workout and really making fitness a HUGE priority for me. Even though all though hours of free time seem like just a bunch of endless opportunities, I know that activities will soon begin to fill up my calendar so to help, I have come up with some tips for making fitness time a reality so you can be a healthier mama.

WHY YOU SHOULD NOT CHOOSE THE CHEAP SHAKEOLOGY ALTERNATIVE

Why You Should Not Choose the Shakeology Alternative | TheFitClubNetwork.com

WHY YOU SHOULD NOT CHOOSE THE CHEAP SHAKEOLOGY ALTERNATIVE

By the end of this post, I hope you understand why you should invest in your health by investing in Shakeology and why it’s NOT a good idea to choose the cheap Shakeology alternative.

Sometimes the cheaper off-brand is as good as the real deal. For instance, the CVS brand ibuprofen tablet will pretty surely take care of your sore muscles just as good as the Advil one. But, this is not always the case…and, it’s definitely not the case with Shakeology. If you choose the Shakeology alternative, you will be missing out on way too many serious healthy benefits.
