Trying to Reclaim my Health

BeachbodyboxresizeFor the past six weeks, I have been totally engulfed in trying to loose weight. I’ve been exercising six times a week using a program called Turbofire by Beachbody. I’m in love with this program! It’s defiantly a more dance type of workout, which makes it really fun. But it’s also a challenging program. I’m literally drenched in sweat with each workout (and some of them are only fifteen minutes).  The program is twelve weeks long and it comes with a calendar that tells you which workout/dvd to do each day. I love how it takes the guesswork out of exercising. I’m also trying to maintain a healthy diet but I’m not going crazy. I’ve replaced one meal a day with Shakeology and I absolutely adore my shakes! I seriously crave them each and every day.

I’m pretty sure the Shakeology has something to do with it. The shakes contain digestive enzymes and are full of nutrients and vitamins. I’m thankful that my disease is finally at a good place. Happy intestines = happy me. Shakeologyfortwo

In the next few weeks, I hope to post a few other posts that have really been on my heart. I’ve really learned a lot about my body and myself since starting Turbofire. It really has opened my eyes to a new way of looking at food and exercise. I’ve also learned that I’m strong and can be dedicated to a exercise program. If you have any questions on how you can get out of your weight loss/exercise rut be sure to contact me and find out how Beachbody can change your life. Not only has it changed my life, it SAVED my life (more on that in my next post). Well until next time…stay healthy and NEVER GIVE UP!

  1. Way to go Erika! I am starting the 21 day challenge after we get back from camping on July 7th. Ed and I have done Beachbody for years, (Ed more than me consistently) and we love it. Looking forward to getting back on track myself. Keep me posted on your progress, we can encourage each other. Tell Landon Hannah sayS “HELLO”!

    1. Hi Rebecca,
      Thanks so much for the comment! You’ll have to let me know how you do on the 21 day challenge. I totally want to try that (along with every Beachbody product…HAHA!). I’ll totally be posting more about my new life with Beachbody and its great to know others that are trying to get healthy too. Its like we’re a big family. Tell Hannah, Landon said “Hi” back. Hannah is so sweet to Landon on the bus. I think one day he was having a hard day with kids not being very kind and Landon told me Hannah stood up for him. She seems like a very nice girl! 🙂

  2. Hi Rebecca,

    I would love to ask you questions about transitioning off of Remicade. I am attempting to do so myself and would love to hear your experience.

    Thank you,
