We’ve touched a bit on my weight loss struggles and triumphs in our fitness series here and again. I’ve been struggling with a plateau and overall lack of motivation for the last few weeks. I wasn’t hitting my goals and that just caused me to spiral into not really being motivated to get up and exercise or make the healthy choices that I know I should be making. We are officially in the Summer season and I knew I had to get my act together! It wasn’t going to be easy & I knew I couldn’t do it on my own.
I needed a hero.
Hello, Slimfast! I’ve used Slimfast before to kickstart me into gear, so I had no qualms with using them again. I figured they were the extra kick in the butt I needed to get myself together and really work it for Summer. I was excited to start with their new Slimfast 14-Day Slimdown to lose 6 pounds in the first two weeks. You just have to follow along, easy enough? Yep!
- Swap two meals a day with a Slimfast® protein shake or meal bar
- The third meal must be 500 calories
- Enjoy three 100 calories snacks or pieces of fruit a day
- Don’t exceed 1200 calories per day
- Do 30 minutes of light to medium exercise daily and drink plenty of water
The new Slimfast® meal bar is the absolutely scrumptious Have Your Cake…™ Meal Bar, with 180 calories per bar it makes for the perfect meal replacement. Vanilla cake, frosting & sprinkles! Seriously, does it get any better then that? You’re telling me I can eat cake and still make a healthy choice and slimdown? Sold! This is seriously one of the best things I have ever eaten. I’ll be honest, I was not expecting it to be SO good. I knew from previous experience it would be fine but I had no idea it would be amazing. I could and have been enjoying these twice a day for about a week and a half and have yet to tire of them. SO, so, so good. At one point my husband and I were fighting over the last one before running out to grab more from Target. I’ve been loving replacing my meals with these. Of course, I have been getting in plenty of water in my cute little mason jar with a paper straw since I am a crazy person and somehow dressing up my water will make me more inclined to drink it and stay on track.
I’ve replaced breakfast with my Slimfast® Have Your Cake…™ Meal Bar. After eating my meal bar and chugging down some water I go ahead and get my 30 minute workout on with some interval training on the treadmill. I’m a person who needs incentives (i.e. water in a cute jar) and another favorite motivator of mine is cute workout gear! I have my cake…literally and grab my water bottle and go to town jamming out for the next 30 minutes. Of note, the meal bars are super filling, being that it is so tiny I didn’t think it’d keep me full but it totally did. I had that a 100 calorie snack mid morning and then went on to lunch.
Since I work from home, it’s incredibly easy to just eat my way through the cabinets and snack all day. That’s a huge problem for me so I happily sat the meal bars right on my desk so I could just grab one for lunch and keep working without having to browse the cabinets and fridge and end up regretting my choice of meals! I’ve been eating these and having another snack mid-afternoon before moving on to my 500 calorie dinner and another 100-calorie snack (which is usually fruit) at night before bed. I’m loving the Slimfast 14 Day Slimdown adventure that I’m on and I’m already down three pounds, I’m thrilled about that! A super easy and totally convenient way to slimdown this Summer, I am loving it.
After that post to my Instagram & Facebook, I know y’all were super excited to find out if they were available in stores and what they taste like!
