Summertime is finally here, and in Arizona that’s a big deal, not only because it’s super hot, but it means less clothes which means, TIME TO LOSE WEIGHT!!! I’ve never really struggled with my weight until recently when I had kids. With the birth of my first baby in 2011 I struggled losing the extra 60 (Yes 60 pounds I put on,) and now with my second in 2013, well let’s just say I’m having a huge amount of trouble losing that LAST 10 pounds and keeping it off for good. I just food way too much. Especially sugar. Candy, cookies, cake… eeck it gets me in trouble.
Being in Arizona, it’s 110 degrees outside today and it’s HOT. Me, my girlfriends and the kids are always in the pool, all day long. With my huge jug of water and my Slimfast bars I’m all set to go. The only other problem that remains is fitting into my bathing suit. Yes I fit into the same size I did before, but it’s a little snug. You would think that last 10 pounds of baby weight around the mid section would come off easily but no. Maybe it’s the soda or the candy bars late at night that I just can’t let go. Either way I’m determined by the end of June to lose these last 6-8 pounds.
This month is full of birthday excitement for my mom, sister and many friends. What better gift to gift then some birthday goodies along with Slimfast ? I don’t know any girl that doesn’t want to try and lose a couple pounds especially during Summertime. The Slimfast 14 day Slimdown is perfect for everyone who wants to be bit and in shape
So I’ve given myself 3 weeks to slimdown. No sugar, (which means no soda, candy or sugary snacks). I’ve also decided to go to the gym at least 3 times a week. We all belong to a really nice gym here in Surprise AZ, I just don’t take advantage of it that much.
Slimfast® launched a new meal bar flavor in April 2014, Have Your Cake…™ Meal Bar. It has 180 calories per bar it’s made of delicious vanilla cake and frosting and delicious yummy sprinkles packed inside. Slimfast® Have Your Cake Meal Bars are available in 5-count boxes and sold at Target and other mass and drug stores nationwide for a around $5.49. I’ve tried all the different flavors of Slimfast and this one is by far my favorite. I squeal with delight everytime I see the Cake bars in my local Target or Walmart, and I buy up every box. (Which usually isn’t a lot because they tend to be sold out) These taste exactly like a piece of cake with frosting. You would think these would be packed with sugar and unhealthy but they aren’t. So when I get that sugar craving around lunch or dinnertime, instead of picking up a sugary bowl of cereal, or something else full of calories, I instead go for the Slimfast Meal Bar. And they KEEP you full too. A lot of products have packaging that ensure you will stay full and not get hungry a hour later, and guess what? A hour later you’re starving! This is not the case with Slimfast Meal bars. Once it’s gone you feel happily full and you don’t need anything else. If you top it off with a huge glass of water…. even better.
These are my new favorite low calorie quick fast meal. All the other flavors are delicious too. I don’t go anywhere without at least a couple of the bars handing out of my handbag. Did you know you can lose up to 6 pounds in 2 weeks? At that rate my 8 pounds will be gone before you know it, and I’ll be slimmer and better then ever in my new bikini.
If you’re new to Slimfast, here’s the jist:
Swap two meals daily with a Slimfast® protein shake or meal bar
The third meal must be 500 calories
Enjoy three 100-calorie snacks or pieces of fruit per day
Don’t exceed 1200 calories per day
Do 30 minutes of light to medium exercise daily and drink plenty of water
I can’t wait to do my 14 Day Slimdown with Slimfast, and I can’t wait to show you guys the results right here on my blog, hopefully in a couple weeks. Maybe sooner if I really get to exercising and eating right. Slimfast is available now at a drugstore near you. Visit Slimfast on their website to join in on the Slimfast 14 day Slimdown. Also find about more about the journey on Facebook & Pinterest.
And the update….
A couple weeks later I’m still eating Slimfast, even when doing hair….
AND I’m in the pool feeling much better about myself!!
