This month sure has been the busiest so far this year. Every weekend booked, countless deadlines to meet, and family-time made. With all the hectic things going on, I started sacrificing some of my ‘me time’. My biggest regret lately: leaving out my 30 minute workout.
One of the main reasons I was working out daily was to get ready for the summer. Not only do we spend hours outside every day, but we also go to the pool weekly. I want to be ready for swimsuit season this year. I want to be ready for the beach. We are taking our first big family vacation at the end of the month. It will be my first time to the beach since having my three little ones. Let me tell you, having three kids within 30 months really took a toll on my body.
I don’t need to be as skinny as I was pre-babies, but I really would love to shred some extra pounds. Eating healthier hasn’t been that hard, and at first, working out wasn’t either. I was going strong with the workouts for over a month, seeing great progress and the motivation stayed high. Then I had a minor injury, which postpone training for a little over a week. I picked it up again, but quickly got overwhelmingly busy. I found myself working through my slotted exercise time.
The busier I got, the faster the month flew by. The next thing I know the month is over half over and now I have less than two weeks before we leave for the beach. My swim suit and beach clothes don’t fit as great as I would like them to. Losing those extra pounds is ideal, but I don’t have much time.
That’s where the Slimfast 14 Day Slimdown Program comes in. It’s convenient enough to accommodate my busy lifestyle, easy enough to follow each day, and a way to help me lose up to six pounds in the first two weeks. Since two weeks is the time I will be sitting on the beach soaking up the sun, the timing couldn’t be better.
Each day of the program consists of two Slimfast Protein shakes or meal bars (replacing two meals), one 500-calorie meal, and three 100-calorie snacks (or pieces of fruit) without exceeding 1200 calories and drinking plenty of water. It is recommended to do 30 minutes of light to medium exercise daily, which I have covered just keeping up with my little ones and going to the park with them.
This week I have been drinking the Slimfast Limited Edition Piña Colada Protein Meal Shake. The 180-calorie drink has that delicious tropical flavor that reminds me of being on the beach. I love having an easy meal for on-the-go. I can focus my morning on feeding my boys, cleaning the kitchen, and getting us out the door. When we are on our way out, I grab a shake for the road. When lunchtime comes, ank the kids are fed, I sit down to work. It is convenient to enjoy another shake while I am sitting at my desk.
I know in two weeks I will be ready for the beach and hopefully swimsuit season. To make slimming down a little more fun, Slimfast has a fun sweepstakes going on right now.
