What I Ate Wednesday: the beginning of the end

I was not very good at taking pictures this week.

And, I'm kind of embarrassed to admit this, but I'm going to start the Shakeology program this week. The only reason I say I'm embarrassed is because I'm not one to jump on trends or hyped up, new products; it's just not me. I rarely believe sales pitches. And I still don't. I don't think Shakeology is some kind of a miracle product, with all the nutrition I'll ever need. I think it's a nutritional supplement and largely, a weight loss shake (to be blunt).

The reason I'm jumping on the bandwagon is because I'm in 2 weddings in less than a month and I'm making an effort to be super healthy (for me) until the wedding days (and hopefully, after). I'm hoping Shakeology will be a tasty meal replacement that will help curb my appetite and/or cravings. Even if the affect is just psychological, I'll take it.

One of the bride's sister-in-laws is a consultant for Shakeology, so she was able to convince me that I should give it a try. A couple of friends are joining in as well.

I will definitely keep the blog up-to-date with my thoughts on Shakeology.
