Birthday Cake Diet?

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Slimfast, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #14daystoslim

This summers vacation in the Outer Banks is coming up fast.  I’m feeling a lot of pressure this year to look good on the beach. This will be the first time since I’ve had Austin that I will be in a bathing suit.

Last year Austin was with us and he was only one month old! I’ve lost about 40 lbs since then so that’s great, but  I would still like to lose a few more.

My clean eating diet hasn’t been going that well (sad face). Clean meals means a lot of meal prep and cooking. With a full time career, a beautiful son that I love spending time with, a book deal and a blog … I don’t have a lot of extra time.

So when Slimfast reached out to me I decided I should give their 14-Day Slimdown a try. I can throw a shake or a bar in my bag and go. Carrot sticks in a bag as a snack? Easy.

Six pounds in 14 days if I stick with the plan. That’s perfect.

The plan: Swap two meals daily with a Slimfast Protein shake or meal bar. I’m thinking breakfast and lunch. The third meal (dinner probably) must be 500 calories.

In between meals, I can have three 100-calorie snacks. As long I you consume under 1200 calories each day, and do 30 minutes of light to medium exercise (my morning runs) I’ve got this in the bag.

The most important part of this whole deal is that these bars are actually really good. Kind of tastes like a cake pop. Really… I’m not just saying that for the blog. It’s going to be like having cake pops for lunch.

There is one dilemma.

We know I like to have a glass of wine (usually mascato mixed with mango juice) after Austin goes to sleep and it’s time to unwind.

I will probably have to run an extra 15 minutes or so to work in an extra 100 calories a day but I came up with an alternative to my sweet and fruity wine fix.

This champagne and watermelon cooler is only 100 calories. Recipe posted tomorrow!

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Throughout the awesome design of things you get a B+ just for effort and hard work. Exactly where you lost us ended up being in all the facts. As as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be more accurate here. Having said that, permit me reveal to you precisely what did work. Your text is definitely really persuasive and this is probably why I am making an effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, despite the fact that I can certainly see a leaps in reasoning you come up with, I am not confident of how you appear to unite the points which in turn make the actual final result. For right now I will yield to your point however hope in the near future you actually link the facts better.
