My Herbalife Three Day Challenge

19 May

Disclaimer: I was given a three day trial of Herbalife free of charge for the purpose of this review. Of course, as always, all the opinions are my own.

Before Starting my three day challenge, Kelsey sent me lots of great materials that talked about what I could expect during the challenge, the benefits of Herbalife and a plan to follow for my three days. I made sure I went through everything carefully so I was ready to follow the challenge to the letter. I wanted not only to have the best results possible but have the best information to share with you.

I can do anything for three days so on a Monday I decided it was time to jump in.


The Experience:

My first shake I mixed in a shaker bottle for breakfast. I did not enjoy it that way, it wasn’t smooth enough for my liking. Of course maybe my shaker bottle isn’t as efficient as others so you might have better luck.

After my breakfast shake I felt full, like stuffed full. That was a pleasant surprise because some of shakes I’ve tried have left me wanting more. My breakfast shake held me all the way until lunch. It was funny though, I was feeling full, then like I flipped a switch, I was hungry.

For my lunch shake I made it in the blender with a handful of ice and it was amazing. If you have the ability to make these shakes in the blender, I say go that way.

Late afternoon I had myself a protein rich snack followed a few hours later with a smart dinner full of veggies. I was a little nervous because when bedtime hits is when I find myself wanting a snack. The thought of eating dinner at around five and then not eating again until breakfast was frightening.

I was fine though. I had a small snack from the list of foods Kelsey sent me and I went to bed happy.

Days two and three followed the same format and all went fairly smooth.

I wish they included more of a variety in the trial so I could get an idea what flavors I’d like to buy should I continue on the program.

For me, this three day challenge felt a lot like a cleanse. I was peeing more than usual and I generally drink at least a gallon of water a day anyway, so I’m no stranger to the bathroom. The liquid wasn’t the only thing going through me, if you catch my drift.


What you’ll see in your 3 day challenge kit.

My Coach:

Kelsey was great! She texted daily to check in and see how I was doing. If I let her know that I was struggling, she was ready with a tip or words of encouragement.

I wasn’t taking this challenge alone, Kelsey was there to help me through and make sure I go the most out of it. From before the start through the entire process to the follow up, she was there for whatever I needed. Kelsey is a weight loss rock star!

You can buy this three day challenge online but what you can’t buy is the individualized attention you get from your coach and if you’re going to have a coach, you should make it Kelsey.

The Results:

I dropped 4.4 pounds during my three day challenge. In addition the the weight, I also lost an inch off my waist and hips. I was pleased with these results to say the least.

I found that the three day challenge was an excellent jump start for me and helped bust through the plateau I’ve been sitting on for far too long. At the end of my challenge I was seeing a number on the scale that I haven’t seen in a LONG time and I couldn’t help but smile.

In the weeks since my challenge I’ve continued to lose weight and inches and I can feel my clothes starting to fit better.

What’s Next?:

I’m still sitting on the fence as to whether or not to continue with Herbalife. I’m sure that my coach, Kelsey can come up with a plan for me that would work with my lifestyle, the challenge was a bit too aggressive for me to do for more than a few days at a time. I only want to replace one meal with a shake but during the challenge I replaced two.

The biggest thing holding me back is the expense. Herbalife is an investment and to be honest I’m not sure if I can part with the money at this point when it’s needed so many other places.

Final Thoughts:

If you’re looking to try something new to shed those pounds, I would recommend reaching out to Kelsey and giving Herbalife a try. Made the right way, the shakes are tasty and they do keep you feeling full.

Even if you’re not sure if Herbalife is for you I’d encourage you to learn more about the product and options offered to see if there is something that meets your needs to help you meet your goals.

16 May

This was the week I dread all year long, the week of The Players Championship. The week where I am a single parent for eight consecutive days. The week where my respect for the single parent is strengthened.

Hell week!



Happy Mother’s Day to me! Don’t let this photo fool you, the kids were absolutely awful. All they wanted to do was fight, fight with me, fight with each other, just fight.

In a moment of calm, Cameron came to show off the plane he built. Not bad for a ten year old!

My Mother’s Day ended with dinner at my parent’s to celebrate my dad coming home from the hospital. Seeing my dad home was most definitely the highlight of my Mother’s Day.



My mantra for Hell Week.

I try to have a positive attitude, but it’s just so damn hard to do it all alone, especially because Bill does so much.

I spent my morning with my dad daddy-sitting so my mom could go get some groceries. The food supply was running dangerously low over there. I got as much as I could done around the house before I left then I took my mobile office with me and sat with dad while cranking out some work.



I really do enjoy my Yogi Tea, tea wisdom. This is probably my favorite little saying.

I’ve been working really hard all week to accomplish a lot. By Tuesday I was really cranking though my to do list and it felt good to be so productive. Usually when Bill is away things fall to shit, but this time I made a serious effort to stay on top of all of it.



Sometimes I do stupid things. The Ring Doorbell needed to be charged so I grabbed a wire to plug it in. It sat on the counter in my bathroom charging all night and Wednesday morning I put it back out assuming it had charged. When I went to put the charging wire away I noticed that the end of the wire that I was using to charge the doorbell looked like this. The end of that bottom wire was plugged in but I thought the end plugged in was the end of the top wire.


Needless to say my doorbell did not charge.



By Thursday I really started to miss Bill. Sure, talking to Cooper is nice but he’s not much of a conversationist.

Cooper and I decided to send Bill a few, “we miss you” selfies to brighten his day. He’s so busy I doubt he even saw them.



We love Pizza Friday here. Usually we’ll go out for pizza but I’m really not too keen on taking the boys out to dinner alone. So instead of spending $30 – $40 on a meal out, I spend $12 for these three pizzas and we had Everyone Gets Their Own Pizza Pizza Friday.

We ate in the family room and watched Pitch Perfect 2 before heading to my parent’s for dessert and a visit with our visiting Hawaiian family.



Saturday was pretty awesome. The weather was gorgeous, something we haven’t seen here in a long time. The boys spent most of the day outside with friends riding bikes and running around. When they came home they were exhausted and ready to chill.

I had a nice quiet day at home getting things done without listening to fighting or bickering and they had a fun day being kids outside with their buddies.

After dinner Cooper thought he heard Bill come home. The poor guy stood at the garage door crying to see his daddy and was very disappointed when I showed him there was nobody there.

While it was a very long week home alone, it was a very productive week and that makes me happy.

I hope your week rocks!
