Hi There! The summer has really been hard on me! The kids are out of school and I do not have as much time to work out and take care of myself.
I am working on getting serious again about my health. I am still eating pretty healthy but I am not drinking enough water or doing enough exercise. When it is hot enough I am able to go swimming with the kids and that seems to be burning a lot of calories, but we have not been able to go every day because the weather has just not been cooperating this year.
So here is where I am at now:
Please excuse my lack of makeup and "Mom clothes", but I have gained a little bit of my weight back from my Body Challenge back in March. I believe the difference has been lack of exercise.
I am excited to tell you that I am not giving anymore excuses for not exercising! It is not my kid's fault that they are out of school for the summer! I am going to get up early in the morning and take the 30 day shred challenge:
Wanna do it with me? Easy!!!
Go to Walmart and buy this awesome disk for $10! What a steal! I love Jillian and she will kick your tush into shape in no time!
I am also using some of my favorite products to help me reach my goals!
First, I am taking a GOOD quality vitamin daily! (These are my favorites!)
I love these because they have over 30 vitamins and minerals in this one little strip! I also have so much energy from taking them too!
Then for five days I am doing a healthy detox with these....
I love that with these two supplements I can do a healthy detox while still eating very healthy foods!
I am going to drink LOTS of water and stay hydrated!
You are supposed to drink half your weight of water (in ounces) every day. That is a lot of water but it is so good for you. This one is hard for me but I HAVE to do it to succeed!
I am going to use this to help me stay hydrated as well...
I am going to do weekly Wraps...
These are basically wraps that you apply to your stomach for at least 45 minutes, and they help tone and tighten your skin. I have gotten wonderful results from them.
If you are interested in using these (they really do work!!) you can go HERE to get some. I also love their defining gel!
Last but not least, I am drinking a Protein Smoothee once a day (this is my favorite brand) for lunch!
The possibilities are endless with this protein powder too! I make all kinds of flavors and recipes with these to keep my smoothees fresh and fun!
I plan on posting weekly on how I am doing. I am going to post my inches lost, since this is an inch loss program, as well as what is working and what is not working for me during this journey. I hope to reach my goal in three months which is to loose 30 pounds. I would like to be at my pre-pregnancy weight. Most importantly though, I want to be healthy and more active for my kids!
Check back next Tuesday for my weekly results where I will reveal my current inches (from this week) and how many inches I have lost in a week!
