Giveaway – Energize your Workouts–and Life– With Plexus Slim!


I gained 15 lbs, my energy went to zero and I was eating like I was training for an Ironman minus all of the training.

After our half-ironman last September, I fell off the workout wagon. Davey and I had just spend 2-5 hours a day swimming, biking and running, and now that our race was over, we had so much extra time on our hands and unfortunately, we didn’t use any of that time to workout.

We traveled to Europe for 3 weeks this past fall and indulged on wine, pasta, bread and gelato. Our indulging didn’t stop there and when we came home in November, we ate loads of of mashed potatoes, apple pie, Christmas cookies and candy.

Maybe you’re rolling your eyes at me because you think that I look skinny and don’t need to lose weight. Well, my 6-foot tall frame hides it well. The scale kept going up despite training for a half-marathon. My jeans didn’t fit. I had to use a hair tie to button them up. I had no energy. My knees hurt when I ran and I couldn’t run 3 miles without stopping to walk. I was embarrassed to wear my workout clothes because they felt so tight

January through April were some tough months both mentally and physically.  I was desperate to feel better and to gain more energy and lose the “food baby” that I gained.


How I lost 12 lbs and got more energy than ever before!

Maybe you’ve seen some of my Facebook or Instagram photos of me holding this pink drink that looks suspiciously like cool-aid.

I’ve never really felt enough of a difference taking supplements to continue them in the past so I was pleasantly surprised when I noticed a difference immediately.

 A few of my coworkers (fellow RN’s who I really respect) were taking Plexus supplements and they had some amazing results, so I figured I’d give it a try. What did I have to lose? (I also took ProBio5 and Biocleanse. See below**)

I’ve always been hesitant to take supplements. Davey and I eat relatively healthfully and we’re always exercising or training for a race, so I didn’t think I needed to take a vitamin or supplement. But a supplement is basically just SUPPLEMENTING something that either:

1. Your body doesn’t produce

2. Your body is deficient in

3. You aren’t getting in your daily diet

You don’t realize how bad you’ve been feeling until you start feeling good again!

Immediately, the first thing I noticed when I took Plexus Slim was that I felt satisfied and full faster. I also noticed that I didn’t make my usual trip to the freezer at night for some ice cream. My sugar cravings seemed to not be taking over my life anymore!

I work long 12+ hour shifts as an RN in the ER (12p-12a) and on top of that, Davey and I are making time for triathlon training and traveling and hanging out with friends. In the past, I relied on coffee to fuel me. It wasn’t uncommon for me to drink 6-7 cups of coffee a day, not including an almost daily trip to Starbucks. And despite the coffee, I was always still tired.

So imagine my shock when after week of Plexus Slim every morning, I forgot to pour myself a cup of coffee. WHO AM I?! And on top of that, I felt energized throughout the day, I didn’t have my usual 9pm brain fog at work, I wasn’t dragging at the end of my shift like I usual did, I handled the stress at work with much more poise than normal and I WANTED to workout before I went to work the next day!

And speaking of workouts, remember how I told you I was dragging and feeling exhausted in the beginning of the year? Well, here’s a picture I posted on Facebook back in May after a few weeks of taking Plexus Slim. It was my first “good” run since October! #poweredbyplexus

Also, another thing I love about Plexus, and this product in particular, is that it’s not a fad diet or a band-aid or a get-skinny-fast pill. It does take some time for it to work, but it’s SO worth it! These changes didn’t happen overnight either. But Plexus supplements  + exercise + healthy eating = great results!

What is Plexus Slim?

Plexus Slim and it is a natural, gluten free, once-a-day drink (not a meal replacement– thank God, because I LOVE food!). 

It was originally developed to help regulate glucose levels, but natural “side effects” of a regulated blood sugar (whether you are diabetic or not), can be weight loss if you have weight to lose, reduced carb and sugar cravings, feeling fuller faster, lower BP, lower cholesterol, sleeping better at night, more energy during the day, decreased pain from inflammation and swelling, help with infertility issues and just overall good health. 

As an ER nurse, this makes perfect sense. Stabilize your blood sugar and the rest of your body will work the way it was created!Giveaway - Energize your Workout--and Life-- With Plexus Slim!

    Man I need more energy bad! I’m an admitted workaholic, it would be nice to feel like I can spend some extra energy playing just as hard.

  2. Kim

    I need extra energy! I work crazy hours and I’m building to train for my first half ironman! I could use extra energy and a few extra hours in the day!!

  3. Alyssa

    Have energy to keep working out and homeschool my kids!

  4. Amy

    Energy – what’s that? I’ve been TRYING to train efficiently all summer but just had walking pneumonia AND on top of it I’m trying to get pregnant but have PCOS. So my body is sucked dry of all energy at the moment. Definitely looking for a great boost like this!!

    You are looking great! I’m contemplating a Half Marathon in November and am sitting on the fence with the training due to lack of motivation. When I get off work I want to nap not run! I’ve built up to 8 miles. If I win your giveaway I’ll see how Plexus helps with my training to get in the necessary miles. Fingers crossed!

  6. Jordyn

    I’d sign up for another half iron if I had more energy. Like you, I fell off the bandwagon after completing my half this year. It’s been almost three months and I JUST did my first swim workout. I want to have that energy to train again.

    I’m so happy to be on this journey with you! Slim has made a real difference in my life in just this last week and probio5 and biocleanse have changed a lot for me since April! There’s so much good information in this post. Saving it for the future!

  8. Hilary

    With more energy #poweredbyplexus, I would sign up for a fall colour run in my beautiful hometown of Ottawa, Canada, and move up from a Sprint to an Olympic triathlon next summer!

  9. Chandra

    I’ve really fallen off my running. I just can’t seem to get through the miles. I’m tired all the time and just can’t seem to get a good routine going again. So I’ve put some pounds back on, even with still eating healthy and exercising. I saw you post about this earlier and was wondering about it. Would love to try something to kick me back into gear!
