The Six Pack Revolution

As most of us sit happily sipping on our Herbalife Tea and contemplating what sort of Shake we’re planning to have for lunch today, there are brave souls amongst us who have taken on something huge…

The Six Pack Revolution.

Yup. As of this morning a whole group of our favourite Herbalife Coaches have taken up this intense challenge and they are bravely letting us watch from the sidelines. Which is great because while we watch I guess we can figure out if we’re brave enough to try it out sometime too?

They’re even sharing there before pictures before they even have their after pictures! Now that’s a serious kind of determination!

You can follow Matt and Vanessa’s journey on Instagram. And we’re not sure just how The Dad is documenting his stuff yet but feel free to stalk him on Facebook or try out his Instagram here or here (he was moaning last night that he doesn’t have any followers but it might have something to do with the fact that he doesn’t realise he has two accounts!)

Good luck, guys!

We’re all already super proud!

Get Fit for Charity

Matt and Vanessa Larter (our very own Herbalife power couple?) have started hosting Fitclubs to benefit local charities. These events are a fantastic way to meet like-minded people actively making changes towards a healthier lifestyle, while benefitting a few local causes as well.

Matt and Vanessa are great motivators who understand the importance of working towards your best self, and their passion shines through in everything they do. Their last two charity sessions have gone extremely well and with your continued support they stand to make a difference in the lives of others.

If you would like to take part in one of their Get Fit For Charity sessions (the next one will be held on the 12th of May) then please contact Matt or Vanessa via their Facebook or Instagram pages and get the details from them.

 

Are you up for a 5 Day Healthy Eating Challenge?

Definitely one of my favourite things happening at the Lifestyle Wellness Hub at St. George’s Park is the 5 Day Healthy Eating Challenges that are run by various members of the team. Every Monday a new challenge starts, and these challenges are a truly fun and easy way to help get folks started on their goals to live healthier lifestyles.

The best part about these challenges is that as much as they challenge you, they also kind of fit easily into your lifestyle. Run entirely on Whatsapp, they’re a low maintenance way to help you get where you want to be. And it works! (more…)

Learn Your Heart Out

Hello again Herbalifers!

This weekend a whole bunch of our peeps are off to the LDW (Leadership Development Weekend) in Cape Town and of course the excitement is palpable. I always love the vibe involved in such journeys. I love thinking about the friendships made, and the friendships rekindled. I think about all the learning that will take place. And I think about how for so many people this is the first step towards an incredible future. This weekend, there will be a room filled with the future faces of our incredible company. That’s kind of awesome!

As a mom and stepmom I put an extraordinary amount of thought into the children and their “education” and often find myself increasingly frustrated at how much of the education systems as we know them are not actually capable of preparing our children for the future, or at the very least, how they are being prepared for a future that no longer exists. But then as I watch our little Herbalife world grow each day and I hear more stories and meet more people who all seem to have so much to teach, I am comforted by the idea that education for the present and future exists in all sorts of forms. You only need to look in the right places.

To all of you who are making the journey to the LDW this weekend, I hope you have a safe journey. I also hope that you will let yourself be open to the teachings of those who have gone before you. Never discount the education that you receive as a Herbalifer. Even if you decide one day that you need to move in a different direction, the things you learn at these trainings will most certainly act a guide no matter where your business ideals take you. These trainings are exceptional, and they are never a waste, as long as you listen.

To those who aren’t going to be at this training: Do yourself a favour and make sure you get to the next one. The energy and excitement that you encounter at these events is magical and it will do so much for you and your peace of mind. Do not discount that power. It truly has the potential to be life changing.

I do envy those of you who are extravaganzaing this weekend. You will all have an incredible time, I’m sure! Don’t forget to drink in every moment of it and come hope an even better version of your Herbalife self.

Have a great weekend, folks!

Nadine

Happy New Year!

Dearest Herbalovers!

I wanted to take a short moment to wish you Happy New Year and to remind you that no matter how big or how small your resolutions are this year: you can make them happen!

I hope that today you are surrounded by your favourite people and you’re indulging in some of your favourite things. I hope that the festive season has been good to you. I hope that you have been kind to yourself and that you have allowed yourself a well-earned rest.

But most of all I hope that 2018 will see you thriving instead of surviving. I hope it sees taking progressive steps towards the life that you want for yourself.

Happy 2018, friends!

May it be more than you ever imagined…

New: Cappuccino Shake Flavour

So we have GREAT NEWS for all the coffee lovers around here: It turns out that the absolutely delightful cappuccino flavoured Formula 1 Shake is FINALLY available in South Africa.

My family has been a tiny bit addicted to this particular flavour for a while now. As you may know, not all products are available in all Herbalife countries, and this coffee-scented delight has been the one at the top of our I-Hope-This-Comes-To-SA-Next list for quite some time. The excitement is high!

We’ve been grabbing a tin or two every time we find ourselves in a Cappuccino Shake country for years now. When Anthony and Matt were doing work in Ghana I think they might have been disowned had they not brought these babies home with them each time they came back for visit!

So, don’t delay. Get in touch with your favourite Herbalifer today and insist that you get your hands on a New Cappuccino Formula 1 Shake.

It will just give you another excuse to start your day right!

What if you hadn’t said yes?

There’s a thought plaguing me a bit today. Here we are at the end of the year and it’s going to be a busy couple of months for our little Herbalife family. Next month there’s the annual Herbalife extravaganza in Johannesburg, and of course that’s a huge deal and a whole bunch of our local team will be making their way there to learn from and be inspired by the best that this company has to offer. In November, my family (mom, dad, brother) will be jetting off to  Lisbon for the President’s Summit where they will learn and be inspired even further.

That’s quite a bit of adventure ahead, isn’t it? I mean, come on: Lisbon! If my thousands of online travel friends are to be believed, Lisbon is one of the most underrated cities in the world. In fact, in the wanderlusters community it is regarded as one of the best cities to visit.

And my family is going there just by the way. No big deal. It’s just par-for-the-course around here these days.

Which leads me to my plaguing thought: What if my dad had said no…

Imagine it! Imagine my dad had left his meeting with Rob Green and never given Herbalife a second thought. Imagine if he had handed the products over to my mom, and not taken her seriously when she told him that they had made her feel quite incredible and that her energy levels were up for the first time in years. Imagine if they had just shrugged it all off and moved on.

Just imagine.

There’d be no fantastic travel tales to share around family braais. There would be no fulfilling days of helping people improve their lives in uncountable ways. There would be no exceptional health benefits. There would be no financial freedom.

So I do imagine sometimes that he had said no. And it makes me ever so grateful that he said yes. Because every day I am reminded that we have a really good life and a whole lot of the credit for that life goes to this incredible company that makes exceptional lives a reality for so many people.

So thank goodness he said yes.

Health Comes First

September first marks the beginning of spring around our part of the world and with that I find that there comes a shift-change, not unlike the “new year” inspired shift changes that happen every year. Yeah yeah, I know, technically spring only starts around the 21st of September, but we’re attached to the 1st of the month, aren’t we?

The thing is, spring marks new life and new beginnings. With it comes the hope of warmer days and the willingness to bring ourselves out of hibernation, slowly moving forward into healthier lifestyles. It sort of happens quite organically for the most part, but of course a bit of conscious intent ekes its way in too. Part of it is instinctual, no doubt. The desire to regain strength makes sense in the face of personal progression. But part of it can also be societal pressure based.

Summer is coming. If we look bad in our bathing suits the apocalypse will happen.

Yes? Yes.

But actually no.

It’s strange sometimes being in an industry where the most obvious results tend to all be about weight loss. These are the results that you see so they sort of take up all the space and they tend to be the reason people enquire about our business and what we do here at the Lifestyle Wellness Hub. But on the spectrum of wellness, skinniness isn’t synonymous with health, even though losing weight can be a bi-product of living a healthier lifestyle.

So I think my encouragement for you today is this:

Forget about your bum that is a bit bigger than you’d like it to be. Forget about your tummy that is making you feel bad about yourself. Forget about all the things that jiggle and wiggle.

Let’s rather look at your health.

Let’s look at whether or not your body is being fed what it needs to actually cope with your lifestyle.

Let’s look at your sleeping patterns.

Let’s look at your hydration levels.

Let’s look at your strength.

Let’s look at your energy levels.

Let’s look at your heart health, and the health of your other vital organs.

How are those things looking?

Because a big bum is kind of inconsequential in the face of those things. Your big bum doesn’t matter. You health does though. And that’s what we care about around here. Your strength. Your energy. Your fitness.

We don’t mind about your bum.

The Buzzing HALE

Well Saturday morning kicked off with the third HALE for the year and I must admit it was our most successful yet. It’s funny how uplifting that kind of buzzing excitement can be. These HALEs (healthy active lifestyle events) are such a great opportunity for our ambassadors, members, and challenge leaders, and we’re all feeling quite excited about how well they are being received.

This weekend we kicked off our own extra special challenge between the various members. Everyone has a month (between Saturday’s HALE and the next one) to get serious about their Healthy Active Lifestyle and do some serious improvements to those Tanita numbers. That’s right, even the challenge leaders have jumped up on the scale and we’re all in friendly competition with one another to take our healthy lifestyles to the next level. I’m quite keen to see what comes out of that.

Here’s wishing you all an incredible week of health and wellness!
