I hope everyone is doing well, losing some inches, and eating less with SENSA®!  If not, no worries, it takes a little more time for some people, but remember  slow progress is still progress and you’re still better off today than you were yesterday.

SQ_Banner_Side_Variety_LG_063014_200x600_FINALIt’s been a while since we talked about SENSA® QUENCH, the energy enhancing vitamin drink mix that comes in three delicious flavors.  For those who don’t know, SENSA® QUENCH is a yummy way for you to manage your energy levels on the go.  Formulated with guarana seed extract and a nutrient blend of antioxidant vitamins A, C, D, B6 and B12, to help provide energy and support your metabolism.  The best part about it…each portable packet is under 10 calories and counts as part of your daily water intake.  What I love about SENSA® QUENCH is its versatility.  I can make smoothies, juices, and even the occasional adult beverage with just one packet (Click here for SENSA® QUENCH recipes).  Had an awesome night out that resulted in a bad headache the next morning?  Grab a SENSA® QUENCH to help you wake up and tackle the day.  Need a quick boost before a workout?  Chug some SENSA® QUENCH spiked water and take your workout up a notch.

Now that I’ve peaked your interest, I’m sure you’re wondering how you can get your hands on this amazing drink mix.  Well, you’re in luck!  For a limited time, we’re offering a 14-day free trial for SENSA® QUENCH.  You’ll get to try all the flavors for just the cost of shipping!  After 14 days, if you’re one of the small minority who doesn’t love SENSA® QUENCH, you get to keep what you received and are never charged again…just make sure you cancel on or before your 14 days are up.  If like most people, you fall in love with SENSA® QUENCH, then you don’t have to do anything at all.  Just sit back and wait for your new box of SENSA® QUENCH to come in the mail.   Sounds like an awesome deal to me!  Wanna give it a try?

Get Moving DVD's

Who’s ready to get their workout on?  Ok…I’m hearing crickets…

I know it’s hard and tiring…and you have to keep doing it, but trust me, once you get started and make exercising part of your life, you will thank me for it.  Generally, when people think about working out, they envision a tortuous hour in the gym, surrounded by shapely, toned women in spandex, hardly breaking a sweat, while they run on the treadmill.  Well, here’s the thing…I don’t run unless I’m being chased or forced to at gunpoint.  I also don’t look cute when I’m working out, and I sweat…a lot.  But, that doesn’t stop me from getting my booty to the gym and working out. I have goals, and so do you…working out will help you reach them.  Not only that, you’ll be happier (oh hey endorphins), stronger (your bones will thank you too when you’re 80), and look better in your clothes (good day muffin top).  Still don’t want to hit the gym?  Well, we got you covered with our new Only 10 Get Moving DVD Series!  Now, you can get your sweat on in the comfort of your own home, without the annoyingly beautiful blonde bouncing next to you…enticed, intrigued, excited?  I know, so am I!

The Only 10 Get Moving DVD Series are led my Petra Kolber, a  ACSM-certified fitness instructor and motivational speaker with over 20 years of experience. One of the leading fitness experts in the world, Petra has choreographed and starred in 25 award-winning fitness DVDs.  She and two of fellow fitness enthusiasts lead you in 10 minute exercise sessions that can fit into anyone’s busy schedule.  Each DVD features a 10-minute Cardio, 10-minute Strength and 10-minute Restore set, plus a special bonus section. Users can do any of the 10-minute workouts to get moving, or mix and match them for a longer total body workout.

The series is built around three progressive levels:

  • Level 1: Believe (Running Time Approx. 40 Minutes) – Designed to help users incorporate more physical activity in their everyday life, Believe features simple, straightforward moves, focusing on proper form and helping to improve endurance.
  • Level 2: Motivate (Running Time Approx. 41 Minutes)– Designed to inspire users to keep the momentum going, Motivate picks up where Believe (Level 1) left off, raising the intensity level and introducing more dynamic moves for an effective, results-focused workout.
  • Level 3: Achieve (Running Time Approx. 44 Minutes)– Designed to empower users to achieve better health, Achieve builds off the moves from Believe (Level 1) and Motivate (Level 2) to help them burn even more calories and reach their fitness goals.

shop-sensa-quench-petra-dvds-FB-shopSounds good right?  We actually got a chance to go a group workout to the DVD’s in the SENSA office, and they were a big hit!  So, what are you waiting for? Go online to http://www.trysensa.com/order-sensa.htm  and get the series today!  Right now we have an amazing deal exclusive to our amazing Facebook Fans called the SENSA Get Fit Kit!  When you order any flavor of QUENCH, you’ll get the SENSA new workout DVD series with simple 10-minute exercise sessions that can fit into even the busiest of schedules.

Happy Healthy Halloween

October 18th, 2012 Guest Blogger Posted in Contests and Promotions, Main No Comments »

Halloween can be a scary time, for many of us. Not because of the ghouls and goblins that are roaming about,but of  those irresistible little fun sized candy bars that seem to be everywhere! With Halloween, comes tons of candy that we buy and consume, along with the hundreds of calories they add to our daily diet and the inches they add to our waistline. Hopefully, I can change Halloween’s reputation as one of the “Diet Sabotaging Holidays”.  There is actually a healthier side to Halloween!

Here are some tips on having a Happy Healthy Halloween!

1. Take your little ones Trick-or-Treating! Walking at a slow speed (2.5 mph) for 1 hour, burns 156 calories. Think about all the calories that you will burn trekking from house to house! Carrying an infant in your arms increases the amount of calories that you burn.
2. Childhood Obesity is on the rise in America, you can help fight this statistic by offering Trick-or-Treaters healthy alternatives to traditional sugar-laden candy.

  • Trick-Or-Treat Alternatives include:
  •  Small packages of pretzels
  •  Animal Crackers
  •  Gold Fish Crackers
  •  Low-fat crackers with cheese or peanut butter filling
  •  Mini boxes of raisins
  •  Cereal Bars
  • Trail Mix

3. Pumpkins aren’t just for decorating anymore! They contain several healthy benefits, which include being low in saturated fat and cholesterol. Pumpkins are also great sources of Vitamins E, B1 and B6, folate and dietary fiber. The dietary fiber in pumpkin makes it a high satiety food, which you know we are big on here at SENSA! In addition to these benefits, a study in the Journal of Medicinal Food, found that pumpkin seed oil may help to lower blood pressure and help to protect the cardiovascular system. So what are you waiting for? Grab that pumpkin and get cooking!! Be sure to think outside the box, pumpkins are good for more than a traditional pumpkin pie! Try pumpkin in your salad or soup and my personal favorite, toasting the seeds for a delicious snack.

4. Let’s not forget the aspect of Halloween that I love the most, CREATIVITY!  Why should children have all the fun ? Not only is letting your creative juices flow fun, it engages the brain. Even if you’ve outgrown the urge to dress up for Halloween, there is no reason why you can’t enter our Halloween Contest by dressing up your SENSA. Trust me it’s tons of fun and you’ll have a chance to win our Grand Prize, $500!  Entering is easy, just go to the SENSA Facebook Page and upload a picture of your dressed-up SENSA Shaker. A winner will be chosen randomly Nov. 5th, 2012.  Good Luck!

Shake, shake, shake!

What Does Father’s Day Mean to You?

June 6th, 2012 Yolanda Posted in Contests and Promotions No Comments »

Father’s Day is just around the corner….whew, that was fast!  A little more than a century ago, Sonora Dodd of Spokane, Washington felt that Fathers should be honored just like Mother’s, especially since she and her five siblings were raised by her widowed father.  The first celebration was on June 17, 1910, but was not officially made into a holiday until 1972 when President Nixon signed the public law making it permanent.  Today there are 70.1 million fathers across the United States, 1.7 million being single fathers.  Unfortunately, the amount of children growing up without father’s has been increasing every year.  According to Fatherhood.gov, Fatherless children are more likely to drop out of school, use drugs, be involved in the criminal justice system, and become young parents themselves.  They are more likely to be depressed, overweight, and from low-income households.  But, we can change this!  Just because a child isn’t biologically yours does not mean you can’t be a father.  Uncles, cousins, grandfathers, brothers, coaches, anyone can be a positive male influence in the life of a child.

We want to honor the father’s across the country by hosting another awesome Father’s Day weight loss sweepstakes.  You will have 3 chances to win a box full of SENSA swag for yourself and the special man in your life.  Don’t have a special fella, don’t worry, you can still enter to win!  Here are the prizes:

One Grand Prize Winner will receive:  (2) SENSA 6-Month Weight Loss Systems, (4) packs of SENSA Berry CHEWS, (4) boxes of SENSA Berry QUENCH, and (2) $250 Best Buy Gift cards, worth over $1200!

One Second Place Winner will receive (2) SENSA 2-Month Starter Kits, (2) packs of SENSA Berry CHEWS, (2) boxes of SENSA Berry QUENCH.

One Third Place Winner will receive (2) SENSA 1-Month Kits, (2) packs of SENSA Berry CHEWS, and (2) boxes of SENSA QUENCH.

I Love My Pack-It and You Will Too!

June 1st, 2012 Yolanda Posted in Contests and Promotions, Main No Comments »

Picture courtesy of Pack-It

When was the last time  you bought something that seems pretty mundane but turns out to be the most awesome thing you’ve bought in a long time?  Well that’s how I feel about my Pack-It®!  This little bag has made packing and storing my lunch much less troublesome than it used to be.  Now, I’m instead of buying my lunch everyday, I just use my Pack-It and it stays cold all day long.  That’s the best part, you don’t need to refrigerate your lunch bag, because  Pack-It® stays cold for 10 hours.  This comes in handy at the SENSA office where the fridge is always overfilled with lunch bags and there’s hardly any room to add another.  What makes  Pack-It® so awesome you ask?  Well….

The Pack-It comes folded and all you do is put it in your freezer overnight…yes, the whole bag goes in your freezer.  The bag is the ice pack, so you don’t have to buy anything extra that really only keeps things cool for 2 hours at the most.  Pack-it’s revolutionary cooling technology keeps your food cold for 10 hours!!


I love my Pack-It and I know you will too, which is why I’m giving 10 lucky winners the chance to win one.  All you have to do is go to the SENSA Facebook Page and comment “I WANT IT” in the post we write about this blog.  10 winners will be chosen randomly on June 5th, 2012 at 11am.  Good luck and don’t forget to sprinkle!

The Journey has Begun-I Lost 10 lbs in One Week!

January 9th, 2012 Guest Blogger Posted in Contests and Promotions, Main, Success Stories 4 Comments »


Jane M. won 1st place in the SENSA Community Blog Contest.  She purchased her first month of SENSA at Costco and has never looked back.  

Here is her story:

A month ago, if you had told me I would make a New Year’s Resolution that incorporated Sensa, I would have politely smiled and thought you were nuts. As of this morning, I have used SENSA for exactly 1 week, as has my husband.

I have a lot to lose while he has struggled for a year with the last 10 to 15 pounds right around his mid-section. Please understand, I could practically write a thesis on weight-loss techniques and theories. We’ve tried all the mainstream ones. When I analyzed my own issues, I had to be honest and say that portion-size was the biggest hold-up. I enjoy carrots and fresh blueberries but, trust me, you can over-eat those, too!! Being brutally honest and properly determining a portion size of a dessert, just didn’t happen in all those social situations. The result…..it all adds up!

As we’ve worked harder and harder to find something that would fit our lifestyle – crazy and hectic – and assist us to take off the weight – our relationship with food seemed to swing between “good as gold” and “guilty as all get out.” We’ve wanted balance – not more complexity. That’s probably what pushed me over the edge to have us begin Sensa. According to all the hoopla, SENSA was going to do that for me while only asking me to use one tool – a shaker. That journey began 1 week ago this morning. When my husband stepped on the scale today, he had dropped 2.3 pounds! For those of us with a lot to lose, that might not seem much but when you are down to the last few pounds, that is a huge amount in one week!!! Sensa did no less for me. I dropped 10.3 pounds! In fact, I stepped on our fancy electronic scale 3 times to see if it could be wrong!

Best of all, this has not been a week of denial. Our first day on it, I took my husband out to a tapas restaurant, I’ve baked home-made bread, casseroles, beef stew, breaded oven-fried fish, apple strudel!! We were at 3 different social events where we had no control over the food. You might say, I put Sensa to the acid test. I used to be a great cook but kept eliminating more and more in an effort to keep weight under control. I brought it back this week. We did what you said, though. Absolutely nothing went in our mouths without Sensa on it first. And, it worked. We both were shocked by how fast we felt full!

We are going forward with a firm resolution to use Sensa consistently during the coming year. We’re excited by how easy it is and how easy life has become in only a week. I know I can’t expect to drop 10 pounds every week but what a joy it was to see the scale move downward while eating good food that opened up a world of variety in our home again! Now, I only have 2 problems. Thanks to Sensa, our brains have kicked portion size into high gear. The freezer needed to be re-organized to store the left-overs into appropriate sized meals from this week’s cooking spree. The other problem is that the holidays are over and I go back to work next Tuesday. That’s 5 more days on Sensa. I needed dress pants and took advantage of the sales to grab several pairs last Monday. I’m leaving the tags on until next Monday when I will try them on and see if they all need to go back to the store because they’ve gotten too loose!!! May all my problems in the coming year be in these categories!!

*Sensa works for 60% of users. The average weight loss of those users is about 9 lbs over 6 months without instructions to diet or exercise.
