Keto meal plans!

Keep going...


Today was day THREE in a row that I have been to the gym. And man, I am getting sore! Not really sore in a bad way, but sore as in "your butt hasn't been moving like this in a while" sore. I did 45 minutes Monday and today, and yesterday was 30 minutes because I was short on time (but determined to get it in). And I am giving it all I've got. But my body feels like I weigh every bit of 300+ lbs. Ugh.

But don't worry, I am going to keep going. I am so motivated right now. Every choice I make that is a step in the right direction is one that I am proud of.


When I am looking in the mirror during my workout, it is easy to get discouraged when I see how big I am, and how much I have to lose. But I try to remember the quote above... It took 35 years to get this size, but hopefully it won't take that long to get it off. It won't be instant, but if I keep on the track I'm on it will happen.

I feel like I am in more of control of my eating, too. I really struggled this weekend. It seemed like I was constantly hungry. But each day it's got better and better. Sticking to my Slim-Fast plan is getting so much easier. I am allowing myself more than the 1200 calories recommended for the 3-2-1 plan, which is ok considering my weight. And I am satisfied and not hungry... just still fighting that "urge" to eat when I am tired or stressed (which is pretty much all the time). Baby steps... I will get there!

Speaking of Slim-Fast... I want to give away a few coupons. Since I have started being a blog ambassador for Slim-Fast, so many people have asked me about the new shakes in the bottles and how they taste. I love them all, except for the cappuccino (which I like, just not love). So I have some coupons for a FREE 4-pack that I would love to share. I will randomly select 5 people who go here to see the flavors available, then leave a comment about which Slim-Fast flavor you would love to try. Comment by TOMORROW (1/25/12) evening at 10 p.m. CST. so I can mail your coupon on Friday (1/27/12). Good luck!

I would also love it if you would check out my Woman of Wow blog on the Slim-Fast Facebook page. Leave me a comment there and show some support, then come back here and let me know you did for an extra chance at winning one of the coupons! You can also get extra chances by leaving a comment on my Facebook page. Just let me know HERE IN THE COMMENTS that you did.

Sound good? Great! Sharing is fun!

  1. I visited the Slim Fast Wow event that was here locally last weekend in Kansas City only because I found your weight loss blog! I had my picture taken for the slim fast facebook page, putting my 2012 weight loss goal out there for all to see. Thanks for sharing and my favorite flavor is the coffee flavored drink. Slimfast has come a long way since I last used it, I remember when it was in cans, lol! Anyway keep on keeping on. I am right there with you as far as weight loss goals and yes we will do this!

  3. My favorite shakes are the French Vanilla and the Milk Chocolate...YUMMY. I love to chop up a ripe banana, freeze it, then put it in a blender in the morning along with either flavor shake, and blend! Yummy, thick shake that is very filling.

  20. Hey,when it comes to weight loss, it's calories that count. Weight loss comes down to burning more calories that you take in. You can do that by reducing extra calories from food and beverages and increasing calories burned through physical activity.
