My Isagenix Experience

Hey guys I’m back again.

Okay so I told you I would give you MY story on Isagenix.

I will tell you a little bit of background on me. I am 5″10 and was pretty much a “tom boy” I was into sports like crazy I was constantly active. I spent every summer since I was 8 years old until my early twenties training as a sprint race kayaker who practiced at least twice a day regattas during the weekend and when I was not in a kayak training I was in a kayak or motorboat coaching. In Highschool if I was not in my kayak training I was in a dragonboat training. When I wasn’t paddling of some sorts I was playing ultimate frisbee in a league on a team with other kayakers (although we only played for 2 years I continued playing ultimate with friends). My winters well since I was about 5 years old until I was 31 I spent my winters at the rink Playing ringette at a competitive level. But I found once I stopped training for kayaking I lost the amazing shape I was once in. I found myself more tired and not motivated because I wasn’t competing against anyone anymore. But I realized that I shouldn’t have to have someone to compete against to live a healthy active lifestyle.

Years ago I was talking to a good friend of mine Mike Pohorly he told me about this amazing woman Rebecca Harrison and about this isagenix program that Rebecca swears by and now works for. I got Rebecca’s contact info and started chatting with her she was very informative and I signed up right away I will not lie the very first time I did it I was not a 100% faithful to the program I mean quitting drinking for a month was extremely hard at that part of my life but I still got great results.

Then about 4 years ago I contacted Rebecca again as I was at my biggest I have ever been (I mean I am 5″10 but 180?? that’s just wrong for me) I was determined to get back to my “fit” self. I did the 30 day program religiously and the gym became my 2nd home I couldn’t get enough of it. I had so much energy and couldn’t get enough of the gym Isagenix of course was hard for the first couple of days I mean your body isn’t used to it however after that it just became a lifestyle in 1.5 months I went from being the biggest I have ever been to being extremely healthy and fit I had a bet to lose 40 lbs and well when I was done my isagenix I weighed 145 so I was 5 lbs over what I was supposed to be but the amount of inches killed what I ever thought I could do. I have never felt better and never been prouder of myself.
People say that you gain that weight back and i will say right now i am not at that anymore however I am never gained all of my weight back and it’s been 4 years. My healthy lifestyle that I was in is not anymore. A year ago I did the 9 day program and I did it to the tee I lost 15 lbs on it and inches as well everyone was asking me how and that was all to do with isagenix.

Now starting Monday I am doing a challenge with a team of people I am doing my 30 days again and I will be going strong at it as yet again I have determination and I am feeling it’s time to get healthy again as I am upset with myself that I have gained ANY of that weight back even though it has been 4 years.

Oh and let me tell you another thing the shakes they taste unreal and there are so many different ways you can taste them. Daily I still use them as my breakfast as they are so quick and easy but again I start 30 day challenge January 6th so those who want to join me let me know! Those who have tried it before comment and tell us YOUR story!!!
If anyone reads this who I know the next part will be embarrassing but below are pics of how big I was followed by the results that I made

Come Join me in the Challenge; Comment if you have any questions

What IS Isagenix??

Hey guys,

Okay so I have started to talk about Isagenix and unfortunately I have not kept up with my promise about the non stop writing about it. So now I am starting a challenge with a team of people on the 6th of this month..oh man that is soon!!

So for those who do NOT know what Isagneix is I will answer that question for you and after I am done answering in a different blog I will tell you MY experience with both the 30 day and the 9 day paks that I tried and hopefully people will comment on their experiences as well 🙂

This is a little bit of help by one of the most informed women on isagenix and and personal trainer who even though in different province as me has helped me a lot and continues to whenever I need it. Rebecca you rock and thank you for this!

People do ask me all the time, what exactly is Isagenix? This is the best description I have ever seen:

Isagenix is an organic “food system” that takes a balanced lifestyle approach to better supporting the body’s natural cleansing and replenishing needs. It is NOT a “diet” BUT a sustainable “lifestyle”, NOT a “weight-loss program” BUT a “body composition system” that builds muscle while burning fat, and NOT a “fast or detox program” BUT a “nutritional cleanse” that supports the body’s natural cleansing/replenishing processes with whole-food nutrition. As the world’s first & ONLY “total body, deep cellular nutritional cleansing and replenishing system” it delivers many unique and diverse benefits for EVERY single cell and organ system from athletes to non-athletes. Being such a comprehensive system adaptable to ALL ages and goals it is difficult to simplify too much beyond this. What I love most are the results; more energy, better sleep, more lean muscle, faster recovery, stronger performance and less body fat!! Transforming lives, one person at a time!!

So that is what Isagenix is all about!!

4lbs in a week!

Hey everyone,

Okay so I started Isagenix last Tuesday (May 14th).  I already know I love the shakes and the way they taste so I was not surprised by this.  I did do a weigh in before I started the program and my first weigh in after was on Saturday and I weighed 4lbs less; I have not remeasured myself again as I will do that later this week and let you know if and how many inches I have lost.  I had my first cleanse day today and it was not hard at all the only thing that is hard about that is you just want to eat something I’m not hungry or anything I just want Pita Pit really badly lol.

So far I am obviously impressed with the results I’ve had in such little time and this has been without the gym.  This week the gym will be incorporated into it as well as some hot yoga most likely! 

Not only am I happy with the weight loss I am extremely happy that I have gotten the energy back that I used to have!!  I feel so much healthier and alive than i have the past couple of months!!

I’ll keep posting updates and probably more frequently as well! 


30 Day Challenge info

Okay so I’m doing a new thing on my blog to both help myself and others out. It’s called the 30 day challenge. It’s all about losing weight and getting fit..maybe if I write to everyone over these 30 days it will push me even harder!
This 30 day cleanse is with isagenix. I’ll tell you a bit about the program and then my experience with it.
Here’s some info about their 30 day cleansing and fat burning system:

This cleansing and fat burning is a starter Pak that is ideal for those individuals who want to lose weight using a long-term, flexible program. The system is a path to health weight loss and designed to gently rid the body of potentially harmful impurities, while infusing it with essential vitamins, botanicals and other natural ingredients to help shed pounds naturally without the use laxatives, stimulants or diuretics.

The isalean Pro shake that comes with the program is a supercharged meal replacement packed with nutrients and a mega dose of whey protein to assist with weight-loss and/or muscle-building goals, specifically geared towards athletes and physically active individuals. IsaLean Pro Shake is formulated with 35 grams of high-quality protein, healthy fats and energy-boosting carbohydrates along with a broad performance spectrum of vitamins and minerals.

This info is all from the isagenix website plus a lot more. There are more systems and paks you can choose from to find out what the best one is for you please contact me and let me know what you are looking to do!

Alright so now that that part is over the dirt on myself is about to come out…well not all of it just some health dirt don’t judge me!

About 4 years ago I had every excuse in the book to eat fast food and not exercise it wasn’t pretty!! I gained quite a bit of weight and I couldn’t stand it anymore it took a break up to really realize how much I gained and to really push me! I used to be so active and was never worried about putting on weight but when you stop training twice a day and start doing almost nothing and eating disgusting McDonald’s and Wendy’s I guess you are bound to gain some weight!!

Soo I got my good friend Mike Pohorly to hook me up with his unreal friend Rebecca Harrison she lives in BC and is a rep for isagenix. She is unreal and really helped me. The 30 day cleanse is rather hard and takes a lot of dedication but I can tell you that it is so more than worth it!! I stuck to my program religiously and went to the gym about 4-5 times a week I saw results everyday!! I lost 35 lbs in just shy of two months and I felt amazing I had way more energy and felt like I could go on for days!!! I was getting so many compliments I started to be a rep for them as well and. Ow trying to get back into the shape I was in.

Over the past 3 years I have gained a little back not all of it but I def don’t have the flat stomach any more!! So I have decided to do the 30 day cleanse all over again. I mean if I found a system that works so well and tastes so good why change it?!? As a make up artist I meet several brides and hear a lot of them at their trials with me talking about losing weight to be “dress ready” so I figured I would write a blog with everything that goes on in my cleanse and how I am feeling as well as my results of course than ppl will see what amazing products isagenix has!

I will write all my results tell you all how many Inches and lbs I have lost weekly… However my starting weight I may not let you in on that until the end…I know too many ppl here I like it to be a mystery to those I know at least for now! I will do progress photos as well most likely s before and after shot.

If anyone has any questions about the program or me feel free to contact me any time!!! If anyone is on or has done isagenix would love to hear from you as well on this blog. And lastly if anyone wants to join the challenge let me know! I will be fully starting it on Monday!!

Wish me luck!
