Nailing T25. Sorta.

I meant to do weekly updates on my new fitness regime, T25. However, I am on day two of the third week so, y’know, best intentions and all that.

I’m very happy to say, after doing some reading, talking to my friend, Sarah, who is a BeachBody coach, and reading the ingredients list on the back of Shakeology, I am becoming a convert! This program is concerned with health and nutrition, two things I am trying to focus on. I’m really excited about the fantastic ingredients in the shake, including superfoods and cancer fighting herbs, with no hidden, scary ingredients.
