If You Like Pina Colada’s… You’ll Love The Isagenix Pina Colada Protein Shake

 

Isagenix pina colada protein shake If you are looking for a taste of the tropics than the Isagenix pina colada protein shake will satisfy your cravings. This limited run Isagenix pina colada protein shake offers the tropical flavors you love, without the belly bulging regret.

Isagenix Pina Colada Protein Shake Ingredients:

The Isagenix Pina Colada protein shake and our other shake flavors are free from gluten and soy. As a Breast Cancer survivor of triple positive Breast Cancer, I have to avoid products that contain ingredients which can imitate estrogen in my body.

Other shake brands often use types of soy ingredients in their shakes. These ingredients cost less, allowing manufacturers to offer a cheaper product. But a lower price does not mean they are better for you. As the saying always goes, you get what you pay for. What is the issue with soy, you may ask? It contains isoflavones, which are a weak estrogen-like compound. You can read more about here.

For the average person, consuming soy is nothing to worry about. But Estrogen positive Breast Cancer patients need to be careful about what we put into our bodies. To ensure the best possible outcome when fighting Cancer, Estrogen positive Breast cancer patients are placed on specific medications designed to block Estrogen in the body. These medications put the body into a chemically induced menopause. Causing a reduction in the amount of estrogen moving throughout the body. This makes the body less hospitable for Cancer, by taking away the food it needs to thrive. Eating foods that have soy in them can possibly have the opposite effect. By accidentally giving cancer the food it needs to thrive. This can make cancer harder to kill, putting the patient at risk of an advanced stage Cancer diagnosis.

I use these Isagenix protein shakes every morning. They have done wonders for my health and wellness. Helping me heal from the damage done to my body from chemotherapy, radiation, and multiple surgeries.

I recently experienced a setback in my health from a daily chemotherapy medication trial. A topic for another post. Having since stopped taking that medication, these shakes have been vital in helping me heal from the inside out.

Isagenix Pina Colada protein shakes are high in fiber. They have 23 vitamins and minerals and are free of trans-fats. Isagenix only uses natural ingredients. All Isagenix Isalean shakes are free from artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners. They also contain active enzymes which aid digestion. This ingredient alone has been crucial in my path back to health, as a lot of the damage I experienced was digestive in nature. It has been a long road, and I am just now starting to see positive changes, but I am not completely out of the woods just yet.

Pina Colada Protein Shake Nutrition Facts:

The Isagenix Pina Colada protein shake contains 24G of undenatured whey protein concentrate. Other protein shake brands claim to contain similar ingredients to Isagenix but they cost less. Don’t let these claims fool you. In order for companies to rightfully include Whey protein concentrate on their ingredient label, the product must include between 29 and 89 percent of Whey Protein.

Other protein shakes commonly include 29 to 49 percent of whey protein, and the rest is “filler”. This “filler” is made up of a combination of fat and lactose. All Isagenix products are made with only quality ingredients. Isagenix uses cold-membrane filtration to extract its whey. This process delivers the largest quantity of whey, in the 70 to 89 percent range. Resulting in a small amount of “filler”, only 10 to 25 percent, in our products. This makes the Isagenix protein shakes far better than anything else currently on the market.

Each serving of our Isagenix Isalean pina colada protein shake is only 240 calories. A great way to enjoy a taste of the tropics without the guilt. Enjoy it by itself, or blend it with our Strawberry Cream. The perfect treat for a hot summer day, and it is good for you as well. Allowing you to indulge your cravings, guilt-free.  There is nothing better than that!

Isagenix protein shakes are scientifically proven to help you lose weight as well as build lean muscle mass. One serving contains only 11G of sugar, 5G of fat, and are 100% free from trans-fats. They are low-glycemic and are a healthy source of energy-boosting carbohydrates.

Still not convinced that the Isagenix products are right for you? Just take a look at these success stories!  They are just a sampling of the many successes Isagenix customers have experienced over the years. Take Angie, for example, pictured at right. She was about to give up on her dreams of weight loss, until the day she found Isagenix. By adding the Isagenix products into her daily routine, and making simple lifestyle changes, she was able to lose an amazing 140 lbs! I should note, that these results are not typical, as everybody is different, but the use of Isagenix products on a daily basis results in more consistent weight loss than that seen on traditional diets.

Or, take Devon, pictured at the left. He too was ready to give up on his weight loss goals, until a friend of his introduced him to the health and wellness company, Isagenix. He now sleeps better, and has more energy than he has had in over 20 years! All from making a few healthy lifestyle changes, and the best part? He lost more than 105 lbs! Again, these results are not typical but are just an example of what can be achieved with simple lifestyle changes, and the addition of our products to your daily life.

I too have seen great changes in my life since I joined the Isagenix family.  Unlike the success stories posted above, my reasons for using the Isagenix products were a bit different. I was diagnosed with Stage 3A ER+, PR+, HER2+ Breast Cancer in the fall of 2016. In order to kill this horrible disease, my body went through six rounds of TCHP chemo,(Docetaxel, Carboplatin, Herceptin & Prejeta), and then finished out the year in September 2017 with Herceptin every three weeks. Surgery followed not long after, then five weeks of radiation, and reconstruction in November of 2017. While I am a survivor, the treatments needed to get to that point took a serious toll on my body, both physically and mentally. Simple changes like swapping my breakfast for an Isalean shake provided my body with the nutrients it needed to heal. I was finally starting to get my energy back, and while I still had a long road of healing ahead, Isagenix finally gave me hope that there was life after Cancer.

Vegan and dairy free options are available as well. My husband is also on board with the Isagenix products, with his favorite being the IsaLean Lemon Passion Crunch bars. They taste like real lemon, as opposed to the artificial flavors found in other products on the market.

Daylight Savings Time History and Tips for Adjusting to a Time Change

© Roman Slavik | Dreamstime.com

Unless you happen to live in one of the areas of the world that do not adhere to Daylight Savings Time, the rest of the world begrudgingly loses an hour of sleep each spring, only to regain it back in the fall.  The United States, and 70 other countries switch their clocks forward an hour when the second Sunday in March rolls around. Only to switch them back again on the first Sunday in November. The daylight savings time change occurs every year, with the exception of Arizona, Hawaii, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, Guam, US Virgin Islands and the Northern Mariana Islands, Japan, India, and China.

While most, almost mindlessly, change their clocks every spring and fall because the calendar tells them to, how many truly know the reason why we go through this process every single year.

What is Daylight Savings Time?

The history of daylight savings time actually dates as far back as Benjamin Franklin in 1784. While it was not called daylight savings at the time, he is the first one to come up with the idea to reset the clocks during the summer months as a means to conserve energy.

During World War I, Germany was the first to institute daylight savings time in May of 1916. But a surprising fact about daylight savings time is that Canada actually instituted the process back in July 1908, eight years before Germany.  The rest of Europe followed not long after, and the United States came on board in 1918.

At the end of WWI, President Woodrow Wilson wanted to keep daylight savings time, but many citizens, mostly the rural farmers at the time, objected to it because it meant they would lose an hour of morning light. So daylight savings was actually abolished until the start of World War II when Franklin Roosevelt reinstituted the process of pushing clocks forward an hour, which he called War Time.

When the war ended, daylight savings time became a free for all. Without a standard policy in place, states and towns were allowed to choose whether or not they wanted to participate. This led to chaos, making it impossible to know the correct time from one town or state to the next.

Congress put an end to the chaos in 1966 with the Uniform Time Act. This federal law did not necessarily require states to observe daylight savings time, but instead required those that did, to follow a uniform protocol. Daylight savings time would start on the first Sunday in April and end on the last Sunday in October. It wasn’t until 2007 when these dates changed to the second Sunday in March and first Sunday in November that we abide by today.

Why Was it Invented?

As winter turns to spring, the tilt of the Earth on its axis faces towards the sun, allowing for the extra sunlight in the evening. The real reason for daylight savings has always been to save energy. When it stays light out longer, eliminating the need for electric lights. While there was a noticeable cost saving when we utilized incandescent bulbs, the switch to energy efficient lighting, think LED and CFL bulbs, nearly make the once cost savings experienced by the time change almost moot. Some areas may even need to run air conditioning units for longer to stay cool, as a result of hotter summer evenings during daylight savings time.

The lack of cost saving is why daylight savings time is becoming a hotly debated topic. Many states are considering making the switch to daylight savings time a permanent thing. Evidence shows the benefits of the extra evening light, far outweighs those experienced when that hour returns in the fall.

How to Adjust to a Loss of Sleep:

Like it or not, every spring we lose an hour of sleep when the time change occurs in March. Like me, you are probably no stranger to the negative effects that sleep deprivation can have on your body.

Immediately following the change, there’s an approximately 24% increase in heart attacks, car crashes, strokes and even suicides. Losing an hour alters the sleep and wake cycle. This results in a restless nights sleep because you’re forcing yourself to go to bed sooner than normal. When you don’t sleep well at night, it turns into grogginess, irritability and mood disruptions. Not to mention having a negative effect on your memory. But there are things you can do to help make the transition a bit easier.

1. Try and give your body some time to adjust to the time change.

Prior to the time change, go to bed earlier, and rise earlier than you normally would. This helps the body ease into the time change gradually, instead of doing it all at once.

2. Make sure to expose yourself to sunlight as soon as you rise in the morning.

Enjoy your morning coffee, or breakfast near a sunlight window, or take an early morning walk, if weather permits. Sunlight can help to reset your internal clock, making the time change a bit easier to handle.

3. Avoid indulging in caffeine later in the day.

Caffeine is a good afternoon “pick me up”, but the boost it provides is only good for the short term. Too much caffeine, especially in the evening can prevent you from falling asleep at night. This can then turn into an unhealthy dependence on caffeine in order to get through the day. Now, this is not to say that you can’t have caffeine at all, just avoid indulging in it after lunchtime.

4. Consider adding some meditation time to your evening routine.

Take 30 minutes to sit still and bring gentile awareness to your breathing before you turn in for the evening. This gives the body a chance to decompress, making it easier to fall asleep when your head hits the pillow. It’s also important to stop using electronic devices during this time. Our bodies utilize melatonin to naturally regulate sleep and wake cycles. The blue light emitted from electronic devices prevents the production this hormone, making it difficult to fall asleep.

It is never too late to begin instituting these tips in your daily life. Many of these tips are helpful all year long, not just for the daylight savings time change. With time, you may welcome the daylight savings time change. No longer seeing it as the unhealthy loss of sleep that it’s known as by so many.

With every order, I try something new, and I have yet to find a product that I do not like.

Natural Cleansing for your Skin – A Konjac Activated Charcoal Facial Sponge Review

I have a been a long time Clarisonic user. But I am always on the lookout for other natural skin cleansing options. For months I had been seeing listings for the Konjac facial sponge but was hesitant to try it. Mostly because I was afraid that it would either be too rough on my already sensitive skin.

It seemed like no matter what I did, my skin was ever changing. Red, irritated, borderline raw areas of skin, particularly around my nose. Painful acne-like bumps, which would appear out of nowhere, with no relation to what I ate or drank.

After all the chemicals I had been exposed to in my Cancer treatments, I liked the fact that this facial sponge was 100% natural, and free of chemicals, colors and preservatives. The Konjac facial sponge was also good for all skin types, so after months of debating, I figured I had nothing to lose. So I decided to give the Konjac sponge activated charcoal facial sponge a try.

When this facial sponge first arrived at my home, I had mixed feelings and was almost borderline intimidated by it. In its natural state, the facial sponge for this Konjac sponge review is quite hard. Leading you to wonder who first thought it would be a good idea to use this item on their skin.

Trying to remain neutral in my opinion, I read the instructions on the back of the box the facial sponge came in. It stated that the sponge works to balance facial PH levels, and helps keep the weak alkalinity status of the human body. Also like other cleaners, this sponge was designed to be gentle, without the need for additional cleansers.

In order to use the Konjac sponge activated charcoal facial sponge, I needed to first soak the sponge in warm water for approximately 10 seconds. This allowed enough moisture into the facial sponge to make it soft enough that you would actually want to use it on your skin.

Having never used a product like this before, I was unsure what to expect. I used the Konjac facial sponge religiously for approximately two weeks. The average lifespan of the Konjac facial sponge before you need to replace it.

It took me awhile to finally get around to writing my Konjac sponge review because my experience with this product was pretty much neutral. If you have read my other product reviews, you know that I am brutally honest when it comes to my feelings about the products I use. Which made writing this review all that more difficult.

After two weeks of twice a day use, I honestly saw no change at all in my skin. Sure my skin problems did not get any worse, but I did not see a drastic improvement either. Combine that with the fact that you need to replace this sponge every 2-3 weeks, and at $3.99 a sponge, you’re suddenly spending about $67 a year for a product that didn’t deliver noticeable results.

While I am happy that I gave the Konjac facial sponge a try, I am torn as to whether or not to recommend this product for others to try. If you happen to find it on sale, by all means, try it out. Just because it didn’t work for me, does not mean it won’t work for you. I personally will stick with my Clarisonic and Rejuvity Cleanser from now on, but welcome your feedback in the comments below.

Living with Cancer….

Dealing with Cancer is not an easy thing. The diagnosis itself is life changing, and your number one focus becomes getting through treatment and returning to a normal life. For me, I just wanted everything to be done and over with. The last thing on my mind was how bad my diagnosis really was. Sure I am alive and considered a “survivor” but my life has forever been changed by this horrible disease. While each day is a blessing, it is also a struggle as I work towards my new normal, whatever that may be.

Cookies & Cream IsaLean Shake is BACK!

If you are a lover of Cookies & Cream shakes like I am, you will be excited to hear that Isagenix has brought this popular Isagenix Isalean Shake seasonal flavor back for a limited time.

When I was growing up, Cookies & Cream was one of my all-time favorite milkshake flavors. As I have gotten older, I can no longer indulge in those milkshakes, but I am thrilled to find that there is a healthier alternative.

Just like the other Isalean shakes in the Isagenix product line, all you need is 8 oz, or 1 cup, of filtered water, and two scoops of the IsaLean shake powder. The cookies & cream flavor does come with little cookie bits in it, which may take a little getting used to for some. The bits are much smaller than the Oreo cookie pieces commonly found in the ice cream milkshake, so there really is no need to chew them.

Like all the other Isagenix Isalean shake flavors, Cookies & Cream has 24G of protein in one serving. These shakes utilize Undenatured Whey Protein Concentrate, which is a higher quality whey protein. What does this mean exactly? Well, protein shake companies can legally state that their product contains Whey Protein Concentrate just as long as it contains anywhere between 29 and 89 percent Whey Protein.

The inexpensive protein shakes contain only 29 to 49 percent of actual Whey Protein, while the remainder, 50 to 70 percent, is made up of fat and lactose. Pure filler in my opinion, and the reason why so many never see results.But Isagenix is different.

They utilize cold-membrane filtration extracted Undenatured Whey, which places our Whey Protein Concentrate ingredient at the top end of the scale. One serving of our IsaLean shake has between 70 and 89 percent Whey, with only 10 to 25 percent of the fat and lactose filler. This is the fuel that the body needs in order to build lean muscle mass.

All of the IsaLean shakes, including the seasonal Cookies & Cream flavor, are free of artificial flavors, colors and sweeteners, and no trans fats. They also have a low-glycemic index and are soy and gluten free. Now you may be wondering, how exactly are the cookies in cookies & cream gluten free? Well, the cookie bits are made with rice flour, not wheat, making it a great option for those who may have a gluten sensitivity. The IsaLean Cookies & Cream shake contains active enzymes that aid in digestion, and are high in fiber, all in a balanced meal replacement shake that tastes great while also being good for you.

If you have gotten this far, you may now be asking yourself, how do I order the Cookies & Cream Isalean Shake? For a limited time, you can purchase this shake directly from my Isagenix Website. This flavor is available to both new and existing customers. If you are a new customer, you will need to click on the “Sign up & Save” link located at the top of the page. You will be prompted to signup for the “Preferred Customer Auto-Ship”. There is a one-time annual fee of $29 to signup for auto-ship delivery of your Isagenix Products, but this also grants you an additional 25% discount on all future orders.

In order to continue, click the Green “Next” button at the bottom of the page. This will bring you to the Initial Order Screen. On this page, scroll down and look under “All Products and Systems, by Category”. You will find the Cookies and Cream listed under “New Products”. Click on the link and update your personal quantity to the number of canisters you would like to order, and click “Add to Cart”. I should also note that when you order 6 or more Isalean shake canisters, in any flavor, you will automatically receive an additional 10% off. The IsaLean shakes are how I got started with the Isagenix products.

Once you have added the Cookies & Cream shake to your cart, you can continue adding products to your one-time order, or just follow the prompts to setup your auto-ship order, create your account, enter payment information and finalize your order. While I know you will love our products as much as I do, I should note that Isagenix does offer a 30 day no questions asked refund. Should, for some reason, the Isagenix products not live up to your expectations, just contact the company within 30 days of placing your order to request a refund.

While Dutch Chocolate, French Vanilla, Strawberry Cream and Chocolate Mint flavors are available all year long, Cookies & Cream is around for a limited time. This flavor sells out fast, so don’t delay and order yours from My Isagenix website today!

A Functional Yet Eye Catching Bathroom Scale – A DakotaWayd Bluetooth Bathroom Scale Review

No matter what your age, you probably have memories of the bathroom scale that took up residence in your parents or grandparents bathroom. These scales were designed to serve one purpose, to provide you with a means to check your weight, which was critical to ensuring you maintained a healthy body weight. More detailed metrics like body fat percentage, BMI, bone mass, muscle mass and even body water were things that once could only be measured in the doctor’s office.

Since technology has made so many leaps and bounds since the introduction of the spring scale in the 1700s, bathroom scales now have the ability to provide users with all sorts of health-related data, all from the comfort of your own home.  Metrics that were once only tracked by athletes and the uber health conscious, can now be tracked by anyone.

Many years ago, my husband and I purchased a bathroom scale from a local retail store. While this model was able to track your weight and BMI, the data was stored within the scale, so it was very difficult to visually track trends. The scale also required the creation of a user profile, based on height and age,  but I found that once the information was in the scale, it was next to impossible to change. I had been keeping my eye out for a replacement, but it seemed like all the high tech Bluetooth bathroom scales cost much more than I was willing to spend.

Then one day, on one of my countless visits to Amazon, I happened upon this Bluetooth bathroom scale from DakotaWayd. On the first impression, I liked the look of this body fat bathroom scale, and since I was embarking on a journey to lose weight, I liked the idea of a bathroom scale that would sync the recorded data with my Smartphone for easy tracking. So I placed my order and waited for this digital bathroom scale to arrive in the mail.

My first impression of this Bluetooth bathroom scale was it looked as good, if not better than the photo I had seen on Amazon. It had a nice tempered glass top, making it easy to keep clean. Our old bathroom scale used buttons to track users, but the Bluetooth connectivity of this device eliminates the need for buttons. It can track up to ten different users with the assistance of the New iWellness app, where our old scale could only track four.

After unboxing the bathroom scale, I downloaded the New iWellness app and gave the scale a try. You must be barefoot in order for the scale to work correctly. It is important to note that this scale utilizes BIA or Bioelectric Impedance Analysis to precisely measure your weight, body fat, muscle rate, water, bone mass, visceral fat, BMR, and BMI.  If you happen to have a pacemaker or any other medical device, it is important to check with your doctor before using this scale.

With the help of the New iWellness app, you can easily see where you stand. The screenshots at the right were live screen captures of my current stats. With a quick glance, you can see what your weight is, as well as the seven other metrics that the bathroom scale tracks.

In order to see further detail about a specific data point, you just need to click on the arrow at the right, and that will bring up a color-coded graph which shows you where you stand.

As a bonus, the data from this bathroom scale also syncs with Apple Health or Google Fit. As you can see in the photo at the right, the Apple Heath app interprets the data points a little bit differently than the iWellness app, which gives you even more data points for accurately tracking your health.

There is one important thing to note when it comes to using this scale. In order for the app to update with fresh data each time you step on the scale, you need to have the phone in the vicinity of the bathroom scale and the app open, otherwise the Bluetooth bathroom scale doesn’t know where to send the data to. But on the plus side, this allows you to still use the scale for a quick weight check. This is quite handy in our house as we commonly use our bathroom scale to check the weight of our furry family members.

Overall I am very happy with this Bluetooth bathroom scale from DakotaWayd. While I knew I had put on a fair amount of weight, this bathroom scale keeps me accountable and aware of what is going on with my body. It has almost become like a game for me to get the numbers on the app to go down so certain metrics are in the healthy zones. It has also pushed me to try to drink more water throughout the day as I never was truly aware that my intake was not up to par.

So if you are looking for a new bathroom scale, then look no further than the Bluetooth bathroom scale from DakotaWayd. With the ability to monitor 10 users, tracking for eight different health metrics, and Smartphone connectivity, you may just find yourself wondering how you lived your life without this accurate bathroom scale in your home.
