Shakeology...Outta this world!!!

I'm sure that you have noticed that all the shakes and protein bars out there seem to taste like saw dust or those malted milk balls that everyone seems to hate around Halloween time.  They all claim that their's is better or they have exotic flavors such as mocha, peanut butter, or even cookies n' creme. Equals flavored saw dust!! That saw dust, chalky, grittiness you find in most all protein shakes is a filler to help bring down the cost of the shake.  You won't find that here.  This powder is similar to the consistency of powdered sugar. Are you looking for an amazing "after workout" drink that tastes amazing and is cheaper than some of your other favorite beverages?  Check this out!!

"I think Shakeology, having such a low glycemic index is pretty amazing. When you taste it, you really think you're drinking a milkshake. You'd be surprised that there's not more simple sugar in there. I know there is a sweetener in there, an all-natural sweetener, which is great. To have that flavor, to have that almost kind of a guilty pleasure, and then realize it's such a low glycemic index, it's kind of surprising."

"The reality is that the bulk of cardiovascular disease is really preventable. So if I had a product like Shakeology, which supplements the patient and stops them from taking unnecessary high-caloric foods, then that ultimately leads to weight loss for the patient, which is a good thing overall. You win on many levels."

Here is the link to the Shakeology's Website were you can see the break down of everything. Once on the web site you can click on the floating images which are the ingredients in the shake. You can also see what the doctor's are saying about Shakeology and see the science behind it.  

This chart shows you how Shakeology stacks up against its competitors.  As you can see, it is way ahead of the competition. With more bang for your buck, and NO fillers.

If you are interested in purchasing this "Outta this world" shake, click here and it will take you to the Shakeology website where you can choose one of two flavors. (I highly recommend the chocolate flavor.)  With it, you will receive a recipe card with 30 different flavor combinations.  You will also get your own Indepdndent Beach Boday Coach, who is there to help you with anything from new recipe ideas, to helping you with your weight loss goals.

Tip of the day: Mind Over Menu!

Tip of the day: Mind over menu. Eating out while trying to stay on track can be pretty challenging. Avoid overdoing your order by picking your meal ahead of time. Many restaurants have their menus available on their websites. Figure out what you want to fill up on and you'll be ready to avoid temptation come dinnertime.

Low Calorie Tuna Burger

Tuna Burgers

2 (5 ounce) cans tuna, drained
1 egg
½ cup whole wheat bread crumbs
¼ cup onion
¼ cup celery (or substitute a pinch of celery seed)
1 Tbsp fat free mayo
2 Tbsp mustard
½ teaspoon dried dill weed (Optional)
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 dash hot pepper sauce (Optional)
(For an added kick, I love this with a grilled Serano Chili on my burger!)
4 wheat burger buns.

Combine tuna, egg and bread crumbs. Once mixed add all other ingredients. Mix well. Shape into 4 patties (mixture will be very soft and delicate). Refrigerate for 30 minutes to make the patties easier to handle.
Coat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray; and fry patties for about 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through. These can be quite fragile so be careful when flipping them over.

Relay For Life - Team Xtreme Fitness

Hi, My name is Randy McCullar Jr.  I am a Relay For Life captain for Team Xtreme Coaches.  I am running in Relay For Life to help the fight to prevent cancer.  We all have family or at least personally know someone who has suffered or died from cancer.  For me it hits a little too close to home.
My mother, Pam, has been fighting brain tumors and Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma since I was 10.  She has had Chemo and is at the point where she is not going to except that as a form of treatment any longer.  To date, the brain tumor issue seems to be behind us, but the Lymphoma keeps popping up and it is really taking its toll on her!  Hearing those words, “I will not do Chemo again no matter what” really hit me in the gut.  As upset as I had gotten with her, ultimately I have no clue what she has gone through these 20 years as far as pain and so forth.
As prevalent as cancer is in our society, something needs to be done.  Just looking at some statistics, the SEER report shows over 6.1million cases of cancer documented up to 2007 and another near 425,000 cases reported between 2008-2009.  These cases could be our family and loved ones.
My goal is to raise as much money as possible to aid in the fight against cancer.  My Co-Captain Michelle and I have created a team for Relay For Life to help me do this.  Please help sponsor me for the May 14th. race here in Tracy.  Anything you could donate would help immensely.  Below is the link and information about the team and how to donate to sponsor us and/or join!  This is a 24 hour event so please feel free to stop by and see us!  If cancer doesn’t sleep, then why should we?  Thank you for your time and if you are able to come out and cheer us on, that will be great too!

Event date and Time:
