Shift Shop RESULTs and honest review

The newest workout! And it did not disappoint. I saw some great results with this one. I pretty much followed the meal plan to a T and did not miss a single workout. Let me explain this one a bit.

Shift Shop was created by Ohio native Chris Downing. It focuses on shifting your mind and ramping up. It is a rapid program. The workouts go from 25 min 3 days of speed (cardio) 3 days of strength and a mobility day. Week 2 jumps to 35 min. Week 4 is 45 min. and you do a 10 min ab workout 2 days as well.

The meal plan. Very similar to the 21 Day fix plan except carbs. Your list is way more limited and grain free.

• Winter squash (acorn, butternut, delicata, kabocha, pumpkin, spaghetti),‡ 1 cup cubed

• Sweet potato, 1⁄2 cup chopped
• Yams (regular, white, tropical [batata]),

1⁄2 cup chopped
• Parsnips, 1⁄2 cup sliced
• White potato, 1⁄2 cup mashed or 1⁄2 medium
• Peas, 1⁄2 cup
• Beans (kidney, black, garbanzo, white, lima, fava,

pink, pigeon, [gandules], etc.), 1⁄2 cup cooked, drained • Lentils, 1⁄2 cup cooked, drained
• Edamame, 1⁄2 cup shelled
• Refried beans (nonfat), 1⁄2 cup

Also you were losing a carb a week. Where I started on the plan I had 2 carbs week one, 1 carb week two and then NONE!


I know sounds crazy. But I have endometriosis and grains tend to bloat me and generally make me feel like crap. So I felt amazing and had some serious energy!

Mentally the food was the hardest part for me! I am an emotional eater. Happy snack, sad heres a snack, joyous snack time! You get it! Yes I know that is bad but I let that get in the way this summer and spent a good bit of time hovering Doritos. YUCK but soooooo good lol. So mentally slapping that shitty habit out of my mind is hard. Plus I hate telling myself I can’t have something! Its like the toddler in me. I believe in moderation, but since I am being honest moderation went out the window the second the kids school let out for summer. And I was feeling the shitty decisions I made.

I followed the plan to a T! Except for when I had a wedding and drinks at the beach and I had Drinkkkkkksssss. But Hey I am not perfect and I made the decision to enjoy these events.


The program is a ramp up program. What the hell does that mean? Basically the workout gets longer weekly. You start at 25 min, jump to 35, then to 45. Every week 3 days is speed (cardio) 3 days is strength. And 2 days you add 10 min of abs.

Strength is usually my jam, but I felt with this one they moved too fast and until you get the form down and the move if you keep up with the video you will get hurt. In fact one week I smacked myself in the face with a  12 lb. weight. Yep… remembering that this is not the first time these people have done the workout is KEY. Slow down and focus on form.

I finished! Leaner and mentally stronger then probably ever.

I really had every intention of going into a round 2 immediately. Which I started and round 2 is different you do 35, 45, then 50!!! ugggggggggg The meal plan was starting off at week 2 then you repeat it and then go to week 3.

I never do 2 rounds of the same program in a row.  I need change so I am really not sure what I was thinking. Plus this program is def not a favorite of mine. Although the results kicked ass. I tried tho everyday for 3 days I talked myself into it and talked myself into not turning it off the entire time. I half assed each day and forced them I was miserable. So I stopped. I will do it eventually I just needed something else in between!


In the 3 short weeks of this program I lost…

9.9 inches!!!!

2.6 alone in the waist.

I also dropped 4.2 lbs.

I gained a boat load of energy and mental strength.

Beer VS. Health Food

Wait what? Thats a super weird thing to compare right? HAHAHAHAH


But I want you all to relate to what I am saying and I am a beer drinker. I have learned to do it less and focus on Moderation. So where does health food come into this?

How many times have you walked into a grocery store, You are checking out the produce.

“Oh look Watermelon!! Love Watermelon! $5?!!! WTF! I am not paying that!!”

You put this food down.

“Cauliflower is on my list… $4… No Effing way!!”

You put this down.

Ok now you walk into a bar or go out to dinner. Its Cheat night. Your gonna have a beer and enjoy the hell of it. (Don’t like beer think wine, pick your poison… I don’t care what you like this is just what I am using….)

You to the Bartender, “I’ll take a Blue Moon.”

Bartender, “Here You go! That will be $5.25”

You hand over a $10, for one drink without even thinking about it, you don’t even blink.

Does anyone see a problem here?  Really think about it.

So here is my way of thinking. If I pick up something that is beneficial for me and my family. Whether my kids will refuse to eat it or not LOL. I look at the cost. Then I think, “If this was beer would I pay that price?” If the answer is yes then I toss it in the cart and it comes home with me.

There has become such a double standard, saying eating healthy is expensive. But you will walk into a fast food chain and drop$$ like its your job, or a bar, or a restaurant. So what I am saying is truly think about it first.

I drink Shakeology daily right.


At first Sticker Shock when you look at the cost. But again I have, at one time or another, dropped the price of a Bag of Shakeo in a bar in one night. Don’t Judge Me!

When you break down the coach price its under $4 a day. The PSL I drank yesterday was $4.65 and that did not benefit me whatsoever it was just yummy. (Basic Beotch)

So for me, I don’t even think about it. I get my bad I drink it daily I benefit from it.’s-in-shakeology/lob/team

Give Shakeology a Try!

Get it at Coach Price!

Change your thought process, change your life!
