Day One

Let me start off by saying, I'm not selling or affliated with the Visalus products.  I'm over weight.   I'm tired of being unhealthy and I've decided that I'm ready for a change.   I've seen a lot of my friends have success with the Body By Vi, 90 day challenge so I've decided to take my chances and try it for myself.  I'm going to do my best to document my experiences.

With all that said, I told you I was going to create a goal.  I challenged you to create one too.  It didn't have to be about weight lose, health or fitness but I ask that it's a goal you can strive to meet in 90 days.   My goal is to lose 30 lbs in the next 90 days.   In order to do this, I will be using the Body by Vi products and exercising.  I'm consuming 2 shakes a day plus healthy snacks and a sensible dinner. 

Day One 

I decided to start on a Monday.  It just worked for me mentally to be prepared for the challenge.   I had court (darn speeding ticket) out of town and needed to get ready quickly.   I got up, made my chocolate shake and was out the door.  Breakfast was quick easy and done.   I did have a slight headache all day.   For Lunch, I had another shake (with real raspberries).   My head ache continued.  I had a few snacks, like hummus, turkey and fruit throughout the day. 

My hubby is doing the challenge with me.  We were very hungry come 5 o'clock.   We went out to eat one of our favorite resteraunts.  Yeah, we're gonna need a better plan.   Since I forgot to take measurements in the morning, I took them last night and pics.  I'll probably post them later.

What was your goal?  Have you started?   What are you waiting for...

Just Sayin..


I don't even know how much I weigh right now.  What I do know is I've gained back most of the 75lbs I lost.    It's disappointing but I have to look at the reasons why and figure out what happened.  I had some GREAT success. 

What changed and when?

I was diligent at working out and eating healthy.  It had lasted months, but I injured myself and couldn't work out like I did.  I lost motivation.  We opened up our own business and my life went crazy.   My schedule changed, my stress level increased and my old habbits of eating out for convience came back.  Then I got into a habbit of "might as well" because I've already failed.

Good news

I know how to eat healthy.
I still enjoy excercise and still compete in races.  It's fun for me, even if I have to walk to finish.

I can start again.   I've found a product I think will really help me. I don't normally believe in "diets" but I think where I am now, what do I have to lose?   Well, truthfully 75-100 lbs.

 I've set a goal, I'm going to focus on meeting that goal and doing what I can.  I know I can be successful.   On Monday I will start my challenge.   My goal is to lose 30 lbs in 90 days.  If I'm focused, I know I can meet and exceed the goal.  As I start my challenge I will be holding myself accountable and sharing my results.   I'd love for you to join me.  Your goal can be anything... ANYTHING.  What would you like to change in 90 days?  We can do this!
