My Honest Confessional as I Get Back on Track

I’m a Shaklee180 blogger who is finishing up my 3rd month and I’m going to be honest. These last two weeks have been tough. Yes, not too long ago I shared how I dealt with the stress and sadness of losing my father through healthy habits. Yet, now when my life is finally returning to my new normal, I just haven’t been able to focus. I’ve been putting my attention on others, my kids, my husband , my mother – all who need support. I’ve let my own needs slip away.

I Have Excuses

I have excuses that I will try to use and hopefully unsuccessfully use. I have about a gazillion things to do this next week. I could easily say I don’t have time for this. But, I would be lying. I do have time. First off, what time do I truly need to eat healthy? With my Shaklee180 toolkit I have it all. The only “extra” is to prepare a healthy dinner…and I already need to do that for the rest of the family. 

I Have the Tools

I know what to do. I have a product, a Shaklee180 box filled with all the tools I need. I have several tubs of the different Shaklee180 shakes, the energizing tea, the snack bars and the meal bars. I have an app on my phone ready to record my eating and meal planning. I have a device to track my every move and help me recognize my less and more active days. 

I Have the Desire

I want to be healthy. I want to get out of the size !@#$ pants that I cringe when I put on. I am making you, no I’m making myself a promise. I promise to do my very best. I promise to put away the excuses and take out the tools. I promise to use my desire to be a healthier mom. I will do this.

    You can do it!! I loved taking part in the Shaklee program and while there were times that it was hard and I wanted to just eat a greasy cheeseburger (I did sometimes) I knew that eventually I’d see the results I wanted. Once I started seeing results, which was smaller clothing, I was inspired to keep working hard.

    It’s hard sometimes. Breaking bad habits, that is not easy. Dealing with life and stress isn’t easy either. I can relate. For me, I had a terrible weekend of overeating and I started to beat myself up and be negative but then I realized that was only go to cause me to feel worse and eat more. I talked nice to myself like I would talk to you and guess what I feel better. So tomorrow is a new day and I’m human and screw up. I’ll do better tomorrow and I will be successful because like you I have desire. I am here to support you and I know you can do it! Just be nice to yourself. =)
