Shaklee180 Four Month Update - Progress


"Nobody knows the price of this Dream...."  
 Soul Surfer "Runaway" by Matt Kearney



Greetings!  Everyone's journey and dream is different.  I love this quote from Matt Kearney's Soul Surfer song, "Runaway."  "Nobody knows the trouble we've seen.  Nobody knows the price of this dream."  It has been a long road, and I am so thankful things are coming together in my wellness.

This sponsored post is part of my Shaklee180 Turnaround Blogger Program.  All opinions are my own. 


We are just completing the Fourth Month of our Shaklee180 TurnAround.  I am loving the products and the results!  Here is my first picture taken this week.

Every month, I take a few pictures at the gym before my workout to see the visual progress. I am excited to see the four months of hard work paying off.  I have a way to go to complete my journey and total goals.  However, I am meeting my monthly goals. And I feel great. 


I am continuing Pilates once a week, Running 2 or 3 5ks once a week, and swimming some.  Also, I enjoy doubles Tennis with my family.  And recently, a girlfriend and I began Tennis - singles - once a week for an hour.  I am having fun and encourage anyone out there to get moving.  Your body quickly remembers the fun of being active and will thank you.  You deserve it. 

Look, I can see a difference in these two pictures from month two and four, tagged below.  What do you think?  

Month 4
Month 2
    
One thing I am excited about is the slow but consistent change loss.  I feel like I can do this forever.  Great news. Right! 

Here I am a happy Camper Beachside at our Hotel at Hilton Head Island after visiting this Lighthouse there with my family.  I love seeing my happy and active self again.  Very thankful.  




Shaklee180 is very clear cut to use and simple.  I have not been perfectly on the plan. However, consistently going back to these base meals, protein bar and protein fruit smoothies has made a difference. I use them consistently when I am in town.  I do take a couple of days to have three normal meals when I am feeling like I need to mix it up.  It works.  Yes, I do continue my journey Gluten Free. - I am about 90% Gluten Free and chose GF for diet and wellness purposes.  I am not Celiac.  

Here are some pictures I love.  My sons and me earlier this month.  So happy and thankful.  We had Brunch out at Another Broken Egg, a fun restaurant founded in Louisiana.  I went, I ate and I didn't get off plan and it felt fabulous.  I had two poached eggs, half a serving of turkey sausage and fruit. 




 This was taken at the Top of the Lighthouse at Hilton Head Island, one of my favorite places.  I reminisced my days of living on this Island as a college girl just graduated.   It was wonderful to be back full-circle with my own children - our family in tow.  I love this picture.  And my white jeans are really loose. Happy. 


By the way, the Numbers! ;). here is the scoop in # form: lost -4 .lbs!!  However, my measurements are almost the same. My clothes fit well. And I can see a difference. So, I am learning, again, not to put too much stock in just the numbers on the scale or the tape measure. Here's to a successful Minh and to losing some inches again this month! Right! 

Have a great month and let me know if you have questions. I would LOVE to help anyone on their journey as the song Runaway says, "Nobody knows the trouble we've seen, nobody knows the price of this dream."  A dream that is worth it! 

Warmly, 
Carolina Mama
