Flashback Friday – Diabetes Diagnosis

This past week marks 8. years.

8 years later and I still VIVIDLY remember the PARALYZING feeling of HELPLESSNESS. I still remember the INTENSE feeling of pure SHELLSHOCK when my primary care doctor told me “You do have Diabetes.”

I was a VERY surprising Diabetic diagnosis. I was discouraged. I was getting desperate and frustrated because nothing was really working!

One of the things that has helped me is Shakeology, which was presented to me with the magic words “low glycemic” – music to my ears at that juncture in my life (and still to this day, haha)

I was skeptical, but willing to TRY. 

Shakeology has been a powerful tool in getting and keeping my health on track. It has helped to lower my A1c, increased my energy levels, decreased my cravings, and overall, helped me feel better and much more confident in my capabilities to handle this diagnosis (Diabetes is seriously NO joke!)

It is not a QUICK FIX, not a CURE or a miracle shake, but a sustainable, VALUABLE tool on this up and down journey called Diabetes. It has given me a clean option to satisfy most of the cravings that do occur!

And most importantly, it’s a HUGE part of what got me from feeling HELPLESS to HOPEFUL and EMPOWERED! I still have my struggles, but I feel much more in control of my health, and that’s a good feeling!

Little known fact: I still carry this piece of paper in my wallet 8 years later so I can LOOK BACK at how far I have come, and feel CONFIDENT in where I am going. 

If you need help on your journey, I got you – we CAN do this, together! Let’s connect!

Wellness Wednesday

Shakeology contains protein, but it’s not just a protein shake! It’s a whole food (meaning it comes from a real food and is not man-made) nutrition shake, but it has tons of other goodies other than protein.

It’s made with the healthy stuff you should be eating every day, but typically don’t. Shakeology’s the perfect combination of proteins, phytonutrients, antioxidants, enzymes, prebiotics, and probiotics!
