Slim and Shake Challenge

It's another Fit Club Monday! I love having my Fit Club on Mondays, it's a fresh start to a new week. A chance to wipe the slate clean and begin again!

I am going to be hosting a Slim and Shake Challenge. This will be 30 days of working out and using Shakeology. I will be using Slim in 6. I feel that this is the most effective workout for women. I will be following the workout for 30 days as scheduled and using Shakeology for atleast one meal. I think the results will be outstanding! If you want to join in, please let me know and I will email you the details. I am going to start on April 1!!! You will need to take your before/after measurements and weight, before and after photos and be willing to share your results with me so I can post it here. I will NOT be posting anyone's weight or measurements, just the results! I hope you will join in!
