Meal Replacement Shakes: Shakeology vs AdvoCare Trim

After comparing Shakeology to Herbalife’s Formula 1 , it got me curious on how Shakeology stacks up to other meal replacement shakes. I recently have heard some talk about AdvoCare’s Trim Meal Replacement Shakes. I know AdvoCare has been around awhile, but the only product I knew was their Spark energy drink. I knew they did other products geared toward sports, but didn’t really think of them as a nutrition or weight loss company. It’s funny because they are a company geared toward nutrition, energy, and weight-loss. Cost Again we see that Shakeology is more expensive, but not by much. The retail …

P90X3 Block 1 Results

It was a rough go with Block 1 of P90X3 because of the holidays, but I actually made some progress through it. It took longer than the typical 4 weeks because of all the travel, events, and reasons that came up to miss a workout. I ended up doing all the workouts though and still feel like it did some good. One area I can see the most improvements is the pull-ups. I can do more and can sustain that for a longer period of time. With the new year, I’ve focused my efforts and have stayed on track and …

My Fitness Journey with Insanity by Beachbody: Week 1

Just finished week 1 of the Insanity workouts by Beachbody. It is definitely a very challenging workout routine. It was a struggle at times but I feel that the results will definitely be worth it. Initial Thoughts Since I am out of shape, I figured it would be hard for me to really complete the Insanity workouts and I was initially afraid that I wouldn’t get a good workout. I was completely wrong. Although the workouts are intense and Shaun T pushes you to your limits, there are plenty of reminders to go at your own pace. Shaun T also …

Meal Replacement Shakes: Shakeology vs Herbalife

Recently I crossed paths with someone who was a user and distributor of Herbalife. They talked about the success they had with the product, which was great. Unfortunately it didn’t stop there. They wanted to talk about how great Herbalife was and how Shakeology didn’t really work. They claimed that people could not change anything about their lifestyle and eating habits but still see results if they added Herbalife shakes. I find this completely hilarious because if someone eats the same bad 3 meals and just added Herbalife, there is no way they would see results. Adding in extra calories without …

Starting Insanity Workouts

So my girlfriend, Anna and I finally started the Insanity Workouts by Beachbody. It isn’t exactly fair because Anna has been instructing an insanity class at Turbo Fitness and Nutrition in Carrollton, TX. It’s ok. It just means that I will have try to hard and catch up with her. As you can see from the pics I need a lot of work in my mid section as well as getting some definition all over. These pics are hard to look at but hopefully will be a great motivator to get my butt in gear and do great with the Insanity …
