Shaklee 180™ 5 Month Update

This is a sponsored post as part of the Shaklee Corporation blogger program. I have received free products, online support, and incentives for participating in the Shaklee Corporation blogger program. My opinions are my own.

People following the weight-loss portion of the Shaklee 180  program can expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week.

My fifth month with the Shaklee 180 blogger program is officially over. Just one more month to go! It's amazing how quickly the time has gone!

I feel like I say this every month, but I have been incredibly busy! Every year I look forward to summer so I can relax, and then it ends up being so filled with fun stuff that it's really not so relaxing after all. That's okay though, I don't mind! The important thing is that I can spend time with my family and give my kids opportunities to do things that they don't get to do during the school year. It also means I have less time to focus on ME. But being in the Shaklee 180  program has at least made it easy for me on the nutritional end, so while I am exhausted and not getting to the gym as often as I'd like, I do feel confident that Shaklee is providing me with the nutrients I need for a healthy diet. Because I am a vegetarian, I feel like this is even more of a concern for me. While including my Shaklee products in my every day diet, I know I am getting plenty of protein! I also know I'm getting a minimum of at least a couple servings of fruits and veggies daily, since I like to mix them in my smoothies.

I have traveled a few times while on the program, and it's been way easier than I thought. I especially love having the meal bars when I'm on outings with my family. I can pack a picnic for the kids, and toss in a bar and some fruit or cut up veggies for myself - a perfect, healthy lunch!

It's going to be hard saying good bye to Shaklee at the end of next month! I will have to make more of an effort to make sure I'm eating healthy without the ease of my Shaklee products! But being in this program has made me more aware of what I'm eating, and made me pay attention to healthy eating habits probably more than I ever have before. I'm so thankful for this opportunity to focus on myself a bit - even when time is in short supply!

Be sure to check out my monthly video post as well, and come back next month for my final update!
