Here’s A Plan and later a 2013 Challenge!

23 Nov


AND by what you really need…. that message is for me. 😀  2012m honestly has not been the wonderful dream to full fitness as I thought it would be.  A couple of life happenings ( darn things!) put me in a funk through part of the year and I did not even come close to my fitness goals.

Enough excuses.  I know when I feel fit and on my game and I do not feel that now.  I know what I need to do and I just need to do it.  I have the tools to make it happen, I just need to find the motivation…. now where did I put that?  Is it in the storage room?  Top shelf of the closet?  NO matter – I will find it.

I did mention the shakes before and I like the product.  The first one I made I mixed with skin milk but I was not happy with the fact that the powder is 90 calories, the milk was 90 calories, I added in the chocolate flavoring and half a banana and brought it up to 230 calories.

I know, I know that is not bad… but I knew I could do better.  Pictures above is the powder with an orange vitamin water ZERO (zero calories etc…) and a handful of raspberries.  I was happy with this 100 calorie drink. 

This morning, I am looking at the pancake recipe using the Vi- Shape.  I will keep you informed. 😀


I will be creating a challenge for 2013 on this site… just need to think about it more.

    Just curious-why are you doing a shake as opposed to eating? I will say I am very anti-drinking your meals and supplements-I know that what works for one is not good for someone else-why not eat a meal instead-aside from the fact that for me I need to chew my meals-is this a weight loss or supplement while working out, I think that changes need to be something you are going to do for life not for a specific time frame. Do you like spinach-I believe in eating fiber-fiber fills so then you do not junk out ….not that I practice this every day. Just curious-hope your Thanksgiving was good.

      I am mainly doing this to support my sons efforts. 😀 I eat tons of vegies Esme and love spinach.

    I’m also not a shake or smoothie person but I know a lot of people swear by them. To each her own.

    Looking forward to what you come up with for a challenge!

      I used to be a protein shake during a cleanse I was on in July. It was good and filling. I didn’t necessarily use it as a meal replacement, but as a filler when I was craving late afternoons.
