Thanks for the tip on benderfitness
I'm a pretty big fan of beachbody programs, and I own a few. A tip: you can get a full program for a lot less than $150. The best one that I have, 21 day fix, I credit for helping me lose the "I had a baby after 42" weight, which was 35 pounds. And the program itself (without shakeology) was only $60.
Even better, I discovered that they stream everything. So I now have access to all of their programs, $99/year. I think it's going to be super hard for coaches to make any money. Right now they seem to be pushing the "Beachbody On Demand Challenge Pack" (which is 1 year online access to all programs, plus auto-ship shakeo, for about $160? Or $200?)
Anyway, as you say, Shakeology really isn't necessary. I find the BB programs to be very high quality, and I consider $99 a year to be an awesome deal. I've completed several programs, and I like the ability to try new things. My biggest complaint is that some days, I'm just not feeling 30 minutes, which is why I'm going to check out blenderfitness. Some days man, I just want 15 mnutes.
On to the workout every day challenge...I'm out. I was doing really well earlier this year - running Sunday, swimming Tues/Thurs, biking to work Mon/Wed, using Friday as my rest day and doing a BB program on Saturday (weight training) and Monday (yoga after running). Now I'm training for a 1/2 marathon, so I'm down to 3-4 days a week. One long run, one short run, one swim day, and one weight training/abs day. Might work my way back up after the half marathon.
