When I told my husband about Isagenix, he was all in. In fact, he was the driving force behind me pulling the trigger.
I knew we could benefit from nutritional cleansing, but he really reinforced my thoughts. Plus, we wanted to do this together. Investing in your health is much easier when your partner is all in too.
Why He Started
Spencer has a rigorous schedule most of the year. The college baseball season is in the Spring, but I’m sure many coach’s wives out there can attest to the fact that it is a year-round, demanding grind. There is travel year-round for games, recruiting, and speaking engagements, leaving little time for the family or yourself.
I could tell Spencer was depleted after the season. He is a high-energy guy naturally, but he wasn’t making time to workout or eat regularly. He wasn’t overweight, he had actually lost muscle, and he was nowhere near where he wanted to be. He also was prone to migraines when he didn’t get enough sleep or fuel properly.
I remember several times, he’d come home in obvious pain and put himself to bed before eating dinner, barely saying hi to the kids. It was hard to watch because they missed him, and so did I. Plus, most of the time, I’m solo-parenting it, so I needed a break too!
He was sick and tired of being sick and tired.
What is Isagenix?
Isagenix is NOT a “diet” but a sustainable lifestyle that builds muscles while burning fat. It’s a “nutritional cleanse” that supports the body’s natural/replenishing processes with whole-food nutrition. Essentially, we are eliminating the toxins at the cellular level to make room for the dense nutrition.
Spencer did the 30 Day New Member system and I did the 30 Day Weight Loss Value Pak. This way we could share products from the Value Pak like the IsaLean bars, IsaDelights, eShots, to name a few. It set us up for long term success.
He began his journey in early August following the program as it was designed like the protocol I used. The one difference he made was to add another meal to his because he was hungry and his metabolism was on fire!
Before and After
I thought he looked really good, but it wasn’t until I compared the pictures side by side that the physical differences really stood out.
Most importantly, he told me, “I just feel better.”
Not only is he making workouts a priority again, but he also joined a local CrossFit box because his energy is through the roof. He is challenging himself again. And, he is completely present at home, locked in with the kids, making time to take them on special dates. My husband is back!
Feeling better encompasses a lot, so for Spencer that meant his mental clarity improved, he has more restful sleep, his body composition improved, and his energy increased.
Well, he’s feeling so darn good, that he thought we should attempt a Spartan race together! What?! Yep. There’s no way I could hold him back, so we are running our first Spartan Super in October in Atlanta, GA. I’ll share a separate post on this!
This nutrition is a game changer. If you are ready to start, reach out to me or look at this post to correctly get started.
