Shakeology Boosts: What the heck are they?

Image
Last month Beachbody came out with the Shakeology Boost giving us the ability to actually customize our Shakeology making it stronger in a specific area based on our needs. Maybe you have a big project coming up and you need some Focused Energy, or you are trying to recover after a weekend of a little too much fun and you need a boost of Power Greens, now you can! 
So lets see what Boosts they are offering and what they are all about. 


FOCUSED ENERGY

The Focused Energy boost is designed to give you a kick in the butt boost of wholesome energy. This is energy for both your mind AND your body. There are no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives. Not only will the natural caffeine from guarana and green tea help you feel energized it will also help with mental clarity, alertness, focus, and stamina. 
POWER GREENS

Should We Trust the Universe?

Image
I am one of those dreamers who believe that our lives are ultimately in the hands on the universe...but is this really something we should believe in??

Lets take a good look at what it actually means to 'Trust the Universe'. Part of trusting is 'letting go'. Letting go of limiting beliefs, letting go of trying to control things, and letting go of our fears. This whole 'letting go' thing is actually pretty hard to do. It's not just about SAYING that you have trust in the universe, it's about digging deep, taking a good look at yourself, and actually letting go of what limits you. In order to let go of those things you have to do some work...you have to get to the bottom of your fears. These are things you may not even know are there until you do some serious soul searching. 

Something that comes to mind here is the person who wants the universe to bring them money. The way this universe thing works is the universe will only bring you money, if you truly be…

Get it All Out and Never Give Up

The other day I read an article about Eminem. It was talking about how he used fitness as a replacement for addiction, and how he actually used Beachbody products (he has done Insanity, P90X, and now Body Beast). 
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion on Eminem, but I have a special place in my heart for him. You may not know this about me, but I myself also like to rap. Writing raps is an outlet for my feelings. I have never been the best at expressing how I feel. I am one of those people who either spills it all out in a puddle of tears, or just holds it all in and gets really quiet and hurt (don't worry people I got my personal development to work on that!). Anyway, one of the styles of rap that I felt the a big connection to was Eminems. I remember being in college and listening to his more personal stuff beyond the, 'Hi. my name is' and getting into my own flow. 

I was an angry kid in those days. This was before gay marriage was legal and I was just coming to terms …
