Plexus Slim Pink Drink – What You Want to Know!

Why I Decided to Try Plexus Sliplexus slim pink drinkm

Plexus Ambassador Sara Neal talks about why she tried Plexus Slim Pink Drink

I am a 34 year old, married mother to two little boys and hope to have more babies in the future.  My body was starting to tell me otherwise with closer menstrual cycles, low energy, mood, terribly achy feet, loss of hair, and weight that just wouldn’t budge. 

I have two toddlers to run after which accounts for my energy levels, but the loss of time between menstrual cycles, loss of hair, and terribly achy feet pointed me to do lots of research.

After going through two Whole 30’s and eating Paleo for some time, I knew it had to be a bigger issue when my cycle wouldn’t regulate, my feet still ached, and the weight just wasn’t coming off.  What I came away with was inflammation and hormone imbalance.  I am a lover of whole foods, non GMO and organic whenever possible.  I do not drink soda, or a ton of caffeine, and eat a pretty balanced diet.  Plexus has the products that I, and so many others, have been waiting for.  They are filling the gaps.

What can Plexus Do For You?

Plexus is not a quick-fix. It will not make you drop weight overnight or pump you full of caffeine to give you a huge surge of energy and no appetite. What Plexus is is a company that promotes a healthy gut. The pleasant side effect is that you tend to lose weight after getting your gut healthy.

Gut health is everywhere in the news, and for good reason! They call the gut your “second brain” and most autoimmune disorders, allergies, skin conditions, and behavioral issues stem from too much bad bacteria in the gut and inflammation throughout the body. Research is coming out every day that points us back to the gut.

Plexus Slim Pink Drink

Originally created for diabetics, Slim, aka “the pink drink” stabilizes blood sugars, can regulate cholesterol, and plexus slim pink drinkbalance your blood pressure. It is all natural and has no artificial ingredients. Sweetened with stevia and Lo Han, I think it tastes like a fruit punch or cherry flavored beverage. It is colored by beet root extract and comes in a pouch to be mixed into 8oz of water and drank first thing in the morning, 30 minutes before breakfast. It stabilizes my blood sugar throughout the day, and I find that I do not have the 4pm tired and snacky feeling anymore.

Plexus Slim – BioCleanse

BioCleanse oxygenates the whole body, helps to cleanse the gastro-intestinal tract, energizes the body, supports collagen production, neutralizes acidic conditions, and helps to relieve constipation. Most people are deficient in magnesium, vitamin C, and bioflavonoids, and BioCleanse can aid in nutritional balance. As of October 29, 2015, BioCleanse will no longer use grapefruit in their BioCleanse but instead orange peel to better serve those who cannot have grapefruit due to certain medications. I find that BioCleanse keeps my intestinal tract moving and really works in harmony to help me sleep better due to the magnesium.

Plexus Slim – ProBio5

ProBio5 is Plexus’ probiotic with enzymes. This is, hands-down, the best probiotic I have ever taken. Plexus’ ProBio5 contains 5 beneficial strands of good bacteria, enzymes, intestinal flora, B6, and grape seed extract. ProBio5 contains Chitosanase and can actually break-through the wall (chitin) of candida to destroy it. Most people have candida overgrowth and don’t even know it. Do you suffer from bloating, gas, diarrhea, constipation, food reactions and allergies, environmental allergies, anxiety, reoccurring irritability, heartburn, indigestion, lethargy, acne, dry/flaky/itchy skin, nail fungus, jock itch, migraine headaches, reoccurring cystitis/vaginal infections, premenstrual tension, and menstrual problems? Do you see how this list goes on and on?

Plexus Slim – X Factor

To amplify your absorption of whole foods and any supplement you take, I have found the X Factor by Plexus to be stellar. They have a patented aloe blend to aid in absorption by 300-400% when taking their vitamin. I sure can tell a difference when taking it. My hair grows like crazy, as do my nails, my skin is fresh looking, and my energy is even higher. The X Factor vitamin also contains New Zealand Blackcurrant which is shown to contain a powerful amount of antioxidants and vitamins in and of itself.

Plexus Slim – Mega X

Finally I want to share with you the Mega X. Mega X combines the benefits of Omega 3, 6, 9, 5 and 7 all in one sustainable ALA, SDA-rich, heart and brain health softgel. This is plant-based coming from the AHIFLOWER oil. You will get the full benefits of all 3, 6, 9, 5 and 7 and no gross fish burps.

Plexus Slim Side Effects

When you take control over your own body some crazy things happen.  When taking Plexus Slim products you might plexus slim side effectshave some candida die-off, or go through a detox process.  These are normal and what some may call a “side-effect.”  You will probably have these Plexus Slim side effects when aggressively treating candida overgrowth.  It’s perfectly normal.  After awhile you will notice that inches are disappearing, and the number on the scale is coming down, you will see cheek bones and collar bones, and clothes will become looser.  For some it happens right away, for others it takes longer.  You might even notice other things first like, pain is no longer an issue, sleep comes easier to you, more energy during the day, cravings subside, clearer skin, stable mood and blood sugars, and so many more.  Plexus is working on your insides to then be able to show you results on the outside. 

The beauty of the Plexus products is that they are totally customizable.  Working with your Ambassador will guide you through these stages.  Everyone takes different Plexus products, at different times of the day, and at varying amounts.    I encourage all of my customers to write down goals, take pictures for body comparison of before and after, take measurements, and to frequently look at your goals, pictures, and measurements to see how far they’ve come.

I am now on the path to health.  My feet don’t ache like they used to, I am seeing a change in the scale and tape measurer, my energy is up, my cycle has regulated, and my hair is growing back.  I feel fantastic, and I want you to also!

Get Fit at Home with the VIPR Fitness Training!

Vipr Fitness EquipmentVIPR Fitness Equipment for Working Out at Home

Recently I was introduced to a fairly new piece of fitness equipment called the ViPR. (pronounced Viper). When I first laid eyes on it I had no idea that this Vipr fitness tube  was such a cool and versatile piece of equipment!

I was privileged to be able to try it for the first time at The Body Exchange, a bootcamp program that is exclusive to plus size women. One of the cool things about this place (currently they only have locations in BC) is how cutting edge they are with their workouts. Once you try a VIPR, you will be asking your own gym to get a few!

What is VIPR fitness training? Honestly,  the vipr fitness tube looks like a large rubber tube. And it is, but therein lies the simplicity! This ‘large rubber tube’ can help you perform an almost unlimited number of movements and exercises that simulate real life situations.

So, in reality, it is more than just an exercise tube. The vipr fitness tubes are weighted and come in several weights, lengths and diameters. They have hand grips in several locations on the tube.

Since a picture (or a video!) is worth a thousand words, watch this to get an idea. Honestly, it’s hard to describe just how versatile and fun the VIPR is!

Benefits of  VIPR Fitness Training

In my opinion the VIPR fitness tube is safer and easier to use than free weights. As you saw in the video, it enables you to simulate many everyday types of movement such as pulling, lifting, dragging, reaching and twisting. Because of the weight distribution of the VIPR, those movements are smoother (and thus safer) than when done with free weights.

Plus it makes you feel like a gladiator!Vipr Fitness Tube

The biggest problem with the VIPR is that it’s hard to find. Only the specialized gyms or higher end gyms have these things due to their priciness. Finally, finally they are now available on Amazon but for now I can only add this Vipr Exercise tube to my wish list.

I also would love to see a home DVD with a Vipr training workout, I’m sure that will come at some point.  In the meantime there is an app called  Virtual Trainer ViPR available if you are lucky enough to own this amazing piece of equipment.

Have you seen or tried out a VIPR fitness tube? If not, what is your favorite piece of equipment?

Meet the Hula Hoop Girl and Owner of Ruby Hooping

I recently met Ruby Linz, a fellow blogger who is obsessed with hula hooping! So I have started calling her Hula Hoop Girl, but even luckier for you, I convinced her to write about it here for you guys!! 🙂 But honestly, wait until you read how she practices fitness as a plus size woman, and how much weight she has lost with hula hooping!

Also, her love of hooping has turned into a business!  She now makes customs hoops which you can special order from RubyHooping!

hula hoop girlRuby Linz – Hula Hoop Girl!

The best part about hula hooping is that it’s so much fun, it doesn’t even feel like exercise. The calories burned are just icing on the cake! Mmmm, cake.

Alright so, I’m a plus size woman and I’m a hula hooper. I love talking about the many health benefits of hula hooping, but I’m especially happy about this opportunity to talk specifically about plus size women and hula hooping. I hope that telling my story will inspire other plus size women to learn how to hula hoop.

Before I started hula hooping, I had my eye on it for a while. I knew a few girls in my greater circle of acquaintances that were hula hoop girls, and I always thought that the many dance moves you can perform with a hula hoop were fascinatingly beautiful. But I couldn’t even get the hoop to go around my waist more than once before it crashed to the ground. I figured hula hooping was not something that plus size women like me could do successfully.

My mindset on that started to change at the beginning of this year, when I joined a gym and started working out five days a week. It only took a few weeks of that for the endorphins to start kicking in, and I could already feel my body responding well to the exercise. I felt fitter, lighter, more energized, and above all, more confident. I suddenly became aware for the first time in my life that I could indeed be a fit woman while still being plus size, and that my weight did not have to be the barrier that I was allowing it to be in my life. I was no longer going to be able to convince myself that only skinny girls can hula hoop.

So, that little flicker in the back of my mind of becoming a hula hoop girl started to slowly grow. Then one day, I was browsing through a department store on my lunch hour and happened to walk past a glittering display of hula hoops in a rainbow of colors. I grabbed one in a courageous impulse and gleefully raced back to my office to try the hoop out. I was disappointed to find that, as I’d suspected, I couldn’t keep the hoop going for more than a couple of rotations. But that wasn’t enough to stop me anymore. I now had the confidence to truly know that I could teach my body how to hula hoop and become the lovely hula hoop girl I dreamed of being.

So to make a long story short, I went home and got on Google and started reading everything I could get my hands on about hula hoops. I read about how to hula hoop, how ruby hoopingto make a hula hoop, and how to do hula hoop tricks. I learned all about the fitness aspects of hula hooping. I watched a few instructional videos on how to hula hoop, and before long, I was doing it! Within just a few days, I was able to keep the hoop going indefinitely and felt ready to start thinking about learning some basic hula hoop tricks.

I know that if I can learn how to hula hoop, anyone can. I could never do it as a child, so I learned for the first time at age 30!

Health Benefits of Hula Hooping

I was, of course, pleased to also find that hula hooping helps you lose weight and tones your midsection like nobody’s business. I have never been happy with the way my middle looks or feels, but ever since I started hula hooping, I notice more and more each day that I am enjoying how my hips and stomach feel strong and tight when I walk, and I actually like my reflection in the mirror.

Also, I have received so many wonderful compliments about how small my waist is since I’ve been hula hooping. Truth be told, hula hooping helped me lose about 90 pounds so far. Even though I am still a curvy, thick woman, my body looks and feels so much more fit than it ever has, largely thanks to hula hooping.

hula hooping for weight lossHonestly, hula hooping is the only form of exercise aside from yoga that has ever ignited this kind of passion within me. I don’t think of my hooping sessions as workouts. I genuinely look forward to them because they are a pleasurable part of my day. I never have to force myself to hula hoop, as I sometimes have to force myself to go to the gym. And because there are so many things you can learn to do with your hoop, it can take many years to become a true hooping master.

Just spend a few minutes on Youtube watching hooping videos, and you’ll quickly realize how hula hooping can keep your interest for a very long time. There will always be a new trick to learn, a new goal to achieve with your hoop. That keeps me motivated each and every day. And there’s just nothing else in the world that makes me feel the way I do when I am dancing with my hoop. Pick a song I love, design a routine to it, and then it’s just me and my hoop, celebrating the swing of my hips and the elegance of my curves.

There are so many other benefits I’ve enjoyed since learning how to hula hoop. I personally enjoy the meditative quality of hooping. There is something very calming and relaxing about the rhythm of the hoop rotating around you. When you are hula hooping, you’re not thinking about how you’re going to pay your bills or what to make for dinner. All your mind concerns itself with is the rhythm of the hoop. You are in a highly enjoyable, meditative flow state. These days, many doctors and other health professionals recommend meditation on a regular basis for reduced stress and anxiety. Clearing your mind and allowing it to rest regularly makes it easier to handle all the stuff life throws at you each and every day. So when you hoop, you’re not only getting your body in shape, but you’re improving your mental health, as well!

I truly hope this blog post has inspired many of you fitness-conscious plus size women out there like me to give hula hooping a try. Don’t do like I did for so long and dismiss it as an exercise not suitable for your body type. The truth is, hula hooping is perfect for plus size fitness, and it will inspire you in ways you never dreamed of before.

Thanks so much for reading! – Ruby Linz
