I told you I was part of the #Cinchpiration Team of 50 woman across the blogosphere about 2 weeks ago. I received my starter pack just shy of a week ago and I have been trying out everything for 5 days now. So far everything tastes pretty good. The shakes are super filling, I’ve been using Silk instead of milk, and frozen unsweetened fruit and ice and they’re pretty tasty. I’ve had the Strawberry, Vanilla and Caffe Latte so far, I’m saving the chocolate for last since I’m assuming it will be my favorite.
The meal bars have been good on the run or when I don’t feel like making the shakes, too. I prefer the chocolate peanut butter over the blue berry almond. There are 3 flavors of snack bars, I have only gotten to the lemon snack bar, I am actually not hungry enough to dig into them but I know I have to maintain a certain level of calories so I don’t send myself into starvation mode – I’m trying. Finally, the 3-in-1 boost supplement, and energy tea – not a whole lot to report here, a pill I take 3 times a day and a powder drink that tastes like unsweetened tea, it is what it is.
I haven’t gotten into any extra exercise yet, my water intake is still low, and I’m still doing 1 sometimes 2 cups of coffee in the morning with a little cream and sugar, but baby steps, I didn’t get to be overweight in one day right?
Speaking of overweight, weighing, measuring and taking pictures was the hardest part this week. I don’t take pictures of myself, I don’t let others take pictures of me and to not only take a full picture of myself but point out the measurements was painful as hell! And you know what’s worse (besides my scrawny husband eating a slice of pizza next to me while I convince myself myself the shake I just drank filled me up – which it did, just didn’t smell as good!) Dropping that image in this post for all of you to see right now. It sucks but I am going to do it, like I said no hiding behind my 2009 profile picture right. So here goes, check out what I’m dealing with while I go beat my husband down for a bite of pizza – damn he just threw it to his dog, looks like my work out today is going to be wrestling a boxer! KIDDING!
Ok there it is – let’s let this be the worst picture in the bunch! Check out how others are doing too!
