benadryl side effects
Katy on Benadryl

So this Thursday will be my second of twelve chemotherapy treatments, and boy what a cocktail they have created. I was telling my friend Amy that throughout the treatments, I feel awesome…until they pump me with benadryl and then I feel sort of like Jabba the Hut.  She mentioned that I should do a blog post for shits and giggles when they do this… I’m sure that would be interesting (considering I did a Facebook post that had to be edited twice and then removed because it appeared that I was channeling my inner Lewis Carroll)- perhaps this is something we can all look forward to!

So throughout all of the treatments, I’ve found very little I look forward throughout the 6 month process (hey I promised honesty, didn’t I?),but with the help of my Beachbody Family, we are raising money for The Mario Lemieux Foundation! Not gonna, lie pretty pumped to be a part of this!!!   Throughout the month of March, together as a team, various coaches have decided to donate a portion of their commission to the charity in my honor. How cool is that!?!??!  Our overall goal is to raise $5,000!  Can we do it?!?!

raise money for cancer

Where’s The Money Going? 
The Mario Lemieux Foundation is a non profit organization dedicated to finding the cure for cancer and helping those families who have been impacted by cancer and other diseases.  Mario states, “The Lemieux Foundation is not a short-term project, but a life-long opportunity for me to give hope to patients and families facing what I know is a frightening battle.”  I am honored to be affliated with the charity.  Personally, my goal is to donate $500 from the challenge packs sold this month and help punch cancer in the face. 

How does it work? 
As a Beachbody Coach, I have a passion for helping others establish a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle through “mostly” clean eating and finding a fitness part of your daily routine.  Beachbody makes this easy by bundling together what we call, challenge packs. Challenge packs include:

  • A workout and planner – so there is no guess work in getting killer results
  • Shakeology– a complete, nutrient dense meal replacement shake equivalent to 5 trips to the salald bar 
  • Membership into the online accountability groups (think daily motivation, tips, recipes, meal plans, and someone who is going to be there every step of the way).  

This month 50% of each challenge pack sale will be donated to The Mario Lemieux Foundation.  Now, we’re getting fit for a cause!  How good does that feel.  And this month, two of my absolute favorite workouts are one sale!
