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.

Cetaphil Makes Me Cheerphil

19 Jan


Disclaimer: I was provided a free sample for Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream to try and tell you about from Influenster. While I was given this product for free to try, the opinions are, of course, all mine. 

When I received my sample of Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream I was no stranger to the product. Cetaphil has been a staple in my bathroom for years.

This time of year is killer on my skin. Between the windy, cold weather and all the time my hands spend in water, my hands look older than the rest of me. It’s not just my hands though, it’s everything. I even get these nasty dry patches on my face…GROSS!

When my skin gets dry and chapped many moisturizers actually burn and irritate my skin. I don’t know why, but for some reason Cetaphil doesn’t do that, the opposite actually, it soothes my skin and gives it the moisture it craves.

If I overdo it in the summertime and get a little too much sun, Cetaphil helps with that too. Last summer when I couldn’t find my aloe gel I gave the Cetaphil a shot and it help cool and soothe the burn. Not that I recommend spending too much time in the sun.

I use Cetaphil from my head to my toes. One of my favorite uses is on my face at night. When I wash my face at night I always use the Cetaphil Lotion after. It’s not my choice for daytime use because it’s a little too rich and it doesn’t have an SPF factor. No matter your skin type, I think you can find a use for the Cetaphil family of moisturizers.

The Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream that was sent to me is really nice. It’s thicker and creamier (go figure) than the Moisturizing Lotion but it still doesn’t leave me feeling greasy or sticky when I use it. I have the jar sitting here at my desk and I can put some on my hands and go right back to typing or writing without missing a beat. It soaks in fast and leaves my skin feeling fresh.


Super creamy without being greasy.

Have you tired Cetaphil before? Tell me what you think.
