Well I worked out last night when I got home from work, just a quick but effective 20min weight training workout (an on demand video from my cable).  This was a genius idea, why do I have to wake up at 645am to workout ? When I get bored waiting for 2hrs for Garrett to get home in the evenings. 
I came home had my Herbalife tea, went tanning, worked out, took a shower and was ready by the time he got home.  That tea kept me going until we went to Albert's and ate around 800.  I wasn't crabby and I had a lot of energy, but I was hungry.  I had 3/4 of the bbq bacon cheddar burger and some fries and a long island to drink.
I hope I can work out  2-3 times per week but I feel different about it now.  Before I felt like I HAD to work out and if I didn't I would feel really guilty.  But now my workouts are fun again because they are accelerating my weight loss not the only thing I'm doing to lose weight.  I feel so in control of my life and so happy knowing I'm doing something healthy and something that is actually working.  I've been working out for years and trying to eat right and that got me nowhere.  I just feel so good knowing I'm changing my life for the better.

I got on the scale this morning and I'm down 6 lbs.  I should wait a day or two until its official but it was a great way to start the day!  My BFF placed her order last night and will get started when she returns from vacation next Thrusday! We are so excited for her to start!

Today is day 4 of the cleanse and everything is still normal. 

I really want to host a weight loss challenge with my family I think I will look into that and get it going.

Had a really great weekend!  My bff came over Sat and I made her a shake and some tea, she was pleasantly surprised on how great everything tasted.  I also gave her a multivitamin and a cell activator.  I talked to her the next day and she said she felt great and will be ordering the quick start this week!   : )
I am so happy and excited for her to start!

I started my cleanse on Sunday.  For those of you that know me well know I can't/won't swallow pills and I have crushed and drank some pretty gross stuff before to get medications down.  I've been adding the multivitamin and cell activator to my shakes everyday.  So I added the 2 am cleanse pills as well.  I can barely taste this stuff in my shakes, I swear.  I thought I could swallow the pm cleanse pills but I just wouldn't let myself, so I had to crush and drink them in some apple juice.  I'm not going to say it was delicious but this was by far the best tasting pill I've crushed and drank!  Probably because this stuff is all natural it does not have a weird medicine/chemical taste like other stuff I've done this to.  So that was a bit of a relief.  So far my poop schedule is normal, aka this cleanse didn't make me sit in the bathroom all day.

Yesterday we FINALLY went to the batting cages which made me so happy!!! and then we rode the go-karts, it was fun.  We also went to Albert's (we really love that place) on Friday an Sunday.  I had pizza on Sunday and it was sooo good! They have pretty good food there.

Having a great weekend made it extra hard to go to work today, but the day is almost over.  Hope you had a nice weekend as well!

Still taking two shakes a day and I'm feeling great.  I know it sounds like a commercial but I honestly have never felt better in my life! I have energy and just feel good. 

We decided to start the Herbalife 21day cleanse, it arrived today so we will start tomorrow.  Its supposed to be gentle and hopefully jump start our weight loss even more.  I have definitely already lost inches my pants continue to sag, I'm hoping to go shopping tomorrow for a new pair.

In thinking about the cleanse, I Googled what your poop should look like.  You had to have wondered before ?!? Well I did!  Well I came across a few articles here's one

If your body isn't getting what it needs it can't function at it's best, my body is finally getting what it needs and let me tell you that feeling is amazing.  I wish everyone would at least try Herbalife and I bet they would be amazed like I am.  Now if I can just figure out how to get everyone I care about on it...

Today is day 17 on Herbalife and I had to wash my jeans again because one good tug and I could easily be pantsed.  I put on my freshly washed jeans this morning and they were loose!!! No crazy squatting and stretching exercises needed to loosen them up! Amazing!

We had two shakes Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  For dinner Friday we went to Applebee's I had the riblet dinner and Garrett had the Cajun shrimp pasta and we both got drinks.  Saturday we split an amazing Albert's bbq cheddar bacon burger and I also got a salad and a baked potato and a drink or two.  Sunday we had a shake for breakfast and dinner and made pork chops, mashed potatoes, and some veggies for lunch.  It was delicious!

We discovered you lose inches before pounds and we haven't done our measurements yet, which we really need to do.  I'm down 4.2 pounds!  I've honestly never felt better.  I'm full of energy.  Yesterday was a rainy Sunday those WERE my favorites to lay in bed and sleep all day but I didn't want to do that.  I was up doing stuff all day.

If YOU or ANYONE you know is interested in losing weight and gaining energy without starving and still be able to eat the food you love contact me!!!

Went for a run this morning still at my 14min slow pace :( 
Maybe because I wake up and go, I wish I had time to have a shake before, it would probally improve my time.  But I don't want to run right after drinking one so...

Had a shake for breakfast and lunch. Not sure what I'm gonna do for dinner tonight.

Well I'm down 3lbs. as of this morning!  Not as much as I was hoping for but its a start.  I guess when your losing weight the healthy way this is the way it should be.  Now if we can just stay on pace this weekend. 

We ordered more shake mix on Sunday night and thought it would arrive yesterday so I could have a shake for dinner, but it didn't! :( aaahhh (we'll never use UPS again, FedEx only now!), so I had a tuna sandwich.  No shake for breakfast it was weird I really wanted my shake. 

Some people might think having a shake for two meals a day is crazy but for me it's the best thing.  My breakfast was always unsatisfying and I was hungry by the time I got to work and it was always a struggle to pack a lunch so I usually ended up with a Lean Cuisine and you get sick of eating those after awhile.  So having two shakes is really easy for me not to mention time saving in the morning.  I'm really hoping the stuff is there when I get home I don't want to go shake-less today.

By lunch I was crazy get outta my way I gotta eat Hillary again :(
I have not been like this on Herbalife, I REALLY hope my package is on my porch when I get home!
I also feel like I have less energy without it.  If I wasn't a complete baby still at 27 and could swallow the vitamins I probably would feel better, but they only way I can get them down is in my shake.

Ahhh thank God the stuff was there when I got home! Had a shake for dinner, feeling much better!!!

Friday finally!!!!
I walked to The Whitney for lunch today for my coworkers birthday.  Had 1/2 crabcake, very delicious!  And half of a half of a chicken salad wrap and a half of a half of a reuben but it was made with beef brisket instead of corned beef :( and some fries.  I'm not even going to feel guilty about eating pizza and stuff like this.

We went to Albert's for dinner and some drinks.  I had half of a bacon BBQ hamburger and some fries.  Then we met up with some friends at another bar.  It was a very nice night.

Herbalife on Mad Money


Well I should of gone for a run this morning but I couldn't get up at 645, when it rains I just wanna lay in bed all day!  So when I got up at 730 Garrett said "I thought you were waking up at 645".  Gggrrrr I tried!

I had a shake for breakfast and drank my tea iced on the way to work.  Didn't get hungry till about 1200 so I had a shake for lunch and some hummus and veggies for a snack.  I get OBSESSED with this hummus so I posted the recipe (there is a link on the right under recipes).  Its super easy to make because I can make it!  You can get everything at Meijer.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Still no headache or angry hungry Hillary!  Oh and TMI alert I have already pooped twice today (without activia or coffee).

Went to a friends to visit tonight and had some chili for dinner and I brought my tea along.  One medium size bowl and a small cookie and I was full.  I didn't need to eat anymore its pretty amazing.  Usually I would want to have seconds but I had one bowl and was satisfied. 

Watching the end of the Detroit Tigers game and going to bed... Valverde how about you don't walk anyone tonight!!!!!

If your intersted in trying this with me let me know!  Here is our website if you want more info.

We just got it so I'm excited about it!


Well I know I said I wasn't going to post for a while, I lied.  While I kinda like checking the number of page views I'm getting this is making me accountable for my eating actions of the day.  I had a shake and tea for breakfast, subway for lunch and some hummus with cucumbers and carrots for a snack throughout the day.  May I just say I make some really amazing hummus!  I got home and had some more tea and I'm not really hungry but I know I need to eat.  I'm going to have a shake for dinner.

 Today I woke up at 645am and went for a run.  1.22miles in 14min, yikes! This is horrible!  I've been stuck at this time for over a month now.  Then I walked the path, so I got 40min in.  I've been working out for years now, running more often since we moved (and I don't have a dog to bark when I leave and don't take him). 

  I'm always trying to eat good and have been working out 2-4 days a week for years and just been maintaining my weight not really loosing anything significant.  So I'm really hoping Herbalife will help me.

  I had a shake and tea for breakfast and a shake for lunch today.  I snacked on some frosted shredded wheat cereal throughout the day.  Which I needed because it feels weird not to chew and actually eat something.  But no headache and felt good today, not starving at all.  Made some hummus after work and ate some of that.  Then we had fish, mashed potatoes, spinach and some ice cream for dinner.

We went to Target tonight and got a scale.... He jumped on I'm a bit more apprehensive.  Just really don't want to see that number staring me in the face, good thing we didn't get the super bright display!  Well I think I'll post again in a week or so when I actually have something to report. 

Hope everyone has a good day!
