HI!!! My name is Katie; I am married to a wild-land fire fighter. We have two children; a daughter and son and we have a black lab. I work part time as a reading teacher. I love children and animals and anything fun. I am the typical American; always in a hurry and trying to squeeze as much as possible into an already busy day. Get ready, drop off the kids, go to work, pick up the kids, take them to activities to enrich their lives, run errands, make dinner, clean up, clean up the kids, put them to bed… breathe…
I try to eat healthy and work out, but always seem to run out of time for myself. I know I am a better mom, wife, teacher, friend, sister, daughter, etc. when I am feeling healthy and am taking care of myself, but for some reason I’m the one who I always forget about. I want to be doing a better job at it all; working out and eating healthy as well as providing healthy options for my family while being positive and good role model to my kids AND students.
My brother started using the Shakeology system and I noticed amazing results on him after only one month. I told him I wanted in!!!
Now here I am about 6 weeks later and I have lost almost 10 pounds and even better have dropped 2 pant sizes!!! I am feeling better than ever, sleeping great, no more head-aches, no more aches in my body (no more chiropractor), I have more energy, my nightly cravings for goodies have gone away (mostly), and after all that it just makes sense that I am happier and seem to be more positive than ever!!! I love this stuff and think everyone should at the very least give it a try. I have always been on the healthier side, never tremendously over-weight and always in okay shape. Even when I worked out daily I always still had a bit of a tummy; I just assumed it was my genetics and had accepted it as being “how my body is.” Now at 35 years old, I am in the smallest pant size of my adult life from just Shakeology. I am ready to begin my workouts and am looking forward to having one of those killer after photos!
