Exactly what you'll find in the Mabel's Labels Camp Label Pack - Limited Edition only through July 31

Mabel’s Labels Camp Label Pack

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Mabel’s Labels. I received a voucher to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation. Little Miss is heading to camp by herself this year. At nine years old, she is sure she’s ready (and we did a test run as a family last summer), and I’m doing my best to…

Fit Update: Week 32 aka Look What Shaklee Did For Me

On Thursday next week, a friend of mine is coming to my house to help me go through my closet.  I need someone there to work with me to try on all my clothes and objectively tell me what I just can’t wear anymore.  Why?  Because there is so much in my closet that is just way too big now.  And a lot of it “fits” but isn’t flattering because it…

Fit Update: Week 31 aka Shaklee Saved My Vacation

There are some scary stats out there.  I’ll never forget walking into the spa aboard the Carnival Valor a couple weeks ago and hearing the trainer tell me that the average weight gain for a 7 day cruise is 7-14 pounds.  As I translated each pound into 3,500 calories, I blanched. After all the hard work I’ve put into changing my body and mind and attitude, that last thing I…

Fit Update: Week 29 aka Slacking Doesn’t Work

So I have a confession to make.  Remember how good I was about going to the gym?  And how I was talking about going to the new gym that was cheaper after my dance class membership that I won at my school’s raffle for two months ended?  Shh.  I never went. Oh, I had good reasons.  I actually listed the reasons here well over a month ago and vowed to…

Fit Update: Week 28 aka Back On Track

I spent this past weekend at BlogHer.  And I planned to stay healthy while I was there.  I brought my Shaklee meal bars and snack bars.  I even remembered to bring my energizing tea and my metabolic boost caplets.  The thing I didn’t remember to bring?   Willpower. It’s interesting that last week I wrote about willpower and how willpower is a finite resource, so I have to be careful…

Win a Shaklee Turnaround Kit!

If you’ve missed that I’m a Shaklee blogger and working on six months to get to and maintain my goal weight, you’ve missed a lot.  Literally.  I’m less than four pounds from my goal weight right now, and it feels amazing.  I actually looked at my stomach in the mirror today and went “wow – it isn’t lumpy!” Granted, I’ve been doing more than “just” eating the Shaklee smoothies and…

Fit Update: Week 27 aka Willpower Is A Finite Resource

I had a huge aha moment this week. You know how you have been strong all day and fought temptation left and right.  You did your workouts, you made sure to drink your water, you avoided the chocolate chip cookies, you didn’t finish the food on your children’s plates, and now it’s 9pm and you just… lose it.  Willpower is a thing of the past. Or you’ve been stressed about…

Fit Update: Week 25 aka I Need My Beauty Sleep

“Sleep is important.” Tell me how many times you’ve heard that phrase?  There are so many reasons why sleep makes a difference and yet I know I at least walk around in a daze for at least part of most days because I didn’t get enough sleep the night before.  I can’t honestly tell you the last time I woke up and felt truly rested and refreshed (granted some of…

Fit Update: Week 24 aka Listen To Your Body

I hear people talk all the time about listening to their bodies when it comes to working out.  If you push too hard one day, listen to your body the next and maybe take it easy.  Listen to your body when you’re sick before you decide whether to do your normal workout.  Around food, I hear that much less often, though it’s just as important there to listen to your…

Fit Update: Week 22 aka My Clothes Don’t Fit!

So the good news?  I’m within 5 pounds of my goal weight.  And that feels awesome.  Looking at myself, I sort of feel like I have more than five pounds to go, but that’s really more of a reminder that I need to do some toning rather than simply weight.  The part that isn’t so awesome?  Some of my favorite clothes aren’t fitting so well anymore. I end up having…
