I’ve really been trying to focus more on strength training for several reasons. One: I know it’ll help keep me at a lower risk for injury. Two: It’s important for chicks in their middle 30’s to do strength training to maintain and/or lose weight. It can’t be all cardio all the time anymore. And Three: Muscles are hot, yo.
Now here are two other seemingly unrelated facts for you. One: I’ve recently happened to become friends with a BeachBody coach and distributor. Two: (And I’ve mentioned this one here before a time or two…) I’m currently doing a long-term fundraiser for a local animal rescue.
And here’s where those two facts tie together. When I posted to my fundraiser’s Facebook page asking for pledges for this month to be made as donations to the rescue, this friend very generously offered to donate her proceeds from her BeachBody business to the rescue for the month of August! If you’ve ever wanted to check it out, now is definitely the time to do it. I’ve been curious about the Shakeology products, but never tried them because I didn’t realize they had vegan flavors and–even if I had known–they’re pretty pricey. But they’ve got a special going on right now where if you buy a month’s worth of Shakeology product you get either the Cize or the 21-Day Fix DVD sets for free. So for the price of the Shakeology, I’m getting the mix, the 21-Day Fix workout DVDs, and I know that the rescue is getting a portion of that sale, so it really doesn’t seem like such a bad deal now! I’ve done some of the P90X DVDs, so I’m excited to try this series as well. If you’re interested in checking out anything from the BeachBody line, shoot me an email, I’ll put you in touch with my friend, and she’ll help point you in the right direction!
