Weight Loss Update + Your Weigh Protein Powder

**I received the product below free for my review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be a good fit for my readers. All opinions are 100% my own.

This week was super busy with events, my nephew's graduation and my daughter's rehearsal and recital. Since I was out and about I ate out a lot but I was very mindful about what I ate. If I really wanted to eat something I ate in moderation and stuck to salads for the rest of my meals. I also chugged on protein shakes in the morning to get my day started right. 

I am loving the Slender Rich whey protein powder. Not only does it taste really good but it only has two carbs and no artificial sweeteners. I got to sample the French Vanilla, Dutch Chocolate and Strawberry Creme. My favorite by far was the Dutch Chocolate because it was super rich and creamy. The sample packets also came with a cool shaker bottle that had compartments below it for small snacks or your supplements and vitamins. I prepared my shaker bottle with the protein powder, some fruit in one compartment and my vitamins in the other compartment and stuck it in the fridge the night before I was going out early. When I woke up in morning I would pour in my water, shake it up and have my fruit and vitamins right there for me to take too. 

I didn't get a chance to exercise as much as I would have wanted to, but going out almost everyday I sure did walk a lot in the heat. I have been using my new Omron Alvita Wireless Tracker and it really does keep me motivated to walk more. Next week my sister is in town so I am happy to have my exercise partner back. Time to put some more time in the gym!

  1. I really need to start planning ahead more. I wake up each day with the best intentions but then the craziness of the day gets me off track! Thanks for the inspiration to plan it out better!

  2. You're doing a great job fitting it all in. It's probably because you have a plan. Have fun with your sister!

  3. I am doing pretty good with eating well right now, but I am struggling with exercise! It is just so hot!
