How to Keep Up with a Workout Program

Today I want to talk to you about  my absolute musts in keeping up with your workouts. It’s so difficult to know what is going on with your body when you start a workout program, especially when you expect to be feeling more energetic and stronger and your body is feeling something different.  I was on the fence for so many years about taking supplements, all the while thinking I can just eat healthy and get everything my body needs through food. Now that I have been in the fitness/wellness business for over eight years, along with teaching fitness classes since the year 2000, I have found it is very difficult, if not impossible, to get  everything our bodies need from food alone. In researching vitamins/supplements, I found that our soil is not given time to rest between plantings so it’s stripped of so many nutrients.  It is for that reason that even the healthiest of us may still be lacking in certain vitamins/minerals.  I know I talk all the time about Shakeology and you know how much this has changed my life, it is with Shakeology and other supplements that I use that help with my workouts and daily health. I want to share with you how I keep up with my workouts, while taking care of my body as well.
