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.

Herbalife

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.

Disclaimer Part 2: **People who use Herbalife Formula 1, twice a day as part of a healthy lifestyle, can generally expect to lose around half a pound to 1 pound per week**

What We Found In Lost Egypt {Review & Giveaway}

11 May

Disclaimer: I was given tickets to The Franklin Institute and the Lost Egypt exhibit free of charge for the purposes of this review. As always, the opinions are all mine.

Before I start I need to say that my photos are lacking because Bill and I both used our phones to take pictures and while we were out his phone was hacked and erased along with all the photos he took that day.

We took the boys on a weekday figuring that it might be a little less crowded but it was Election Day so no such luck.

Lost Egypt

As soon as we walked into the exhibit we saw this super awesome camel. The boys couldn’t wait to hop on for a photo or two. They never want their picture taken so the fact that they were more than just willing is saying a lot.

Lost Egypt

Making the wind blow around the pyramids.

There were so many fun, interactive things to see and do. It was fun for the kids but it was also really interesting for the adults. The exhibits made the kids think. From seeing what happens to sand as it blows around the pyramids, to trying to piece together a broken pot, everything was very engaging.

Piecing together an ancient pot.

My favorite part was the ancient artifacts. Looking at mummies and stones that were thousands upon thousands of years old was quite humbling. I had Cameron doing the math to figure out how old each artifact was so it was extra educational for him.

Lost Egypt

Logan loved looking at the x-ray of the mummified cat.

The only downside is that it was too small, I left there wanting more.

Here’s were you can be a winner. Use the widget below to enter to win a family four pack of tickets to see the Lost Egypt exhibit for yourself. The tickets include admission to The Franklin Institute as well.
