I’m participating in a 6 month program with Shaklee, also known as Cinch Inch Loss. I am tracking my progress weekly on my blog and on Facebook and Twitter. My before photos are posted as well. I will be doing an official video within the next week or two, and will be posting progress pictures at least once a month throughout my journey. Check out my Week 1 Weigh In, too.
How I’m doing this week
Honestly, I’m not doing as well as I expected to. I’ve followed the program 100% and haven’t lost a single pound or inch. I am exhausted, I’m crabby, and just hoping this too will pass. Prior to starting the program, I had lost 16 pounds on my own. This may just be a plateau, so I am hopeful that I will bust through it this week.
What my workouts look like
I’m doing a half an hour of cardio followed by a half an hour of strength training most days of the week. I have been more active than I was in the past 10 years! This past weekend I did over 2 hours on the treadmill! :)
My favorite product this week
The latte shake is delicious. Reminds me of my mocha addiction. :)
Areas to improve
I am not sure what to improve at this point. I’m going to keep drinking as much water as I possibly can, and working out and eating a healthy dinner each day. My sodium intake has looked great compared to past weeks, so I just need to work on keeping my water intake up.
Helpful free tool of the week
I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I really want you all to check out MyFitnessPal.com :) It’s a free calorie and exercise tracker that has helped me lose weight many times. Now I just have to stick with it.
How you can help
I have always been 100% honest with you guys, and I don’t plan to stop now. I love that I’ve been given this amazing opportunity to try out Shaklee’s Cinch products for 6 months, but I feel like I’m totally blowing it. I’ve been depressed this week and I really just need some encouragement. So if you can comment on my posts, send me a message, just whatever… anything will help. I am hoping to show a big weight loss next week, but I can’t do it without your help! I need you to PUSH ME!
