Revisiting Slim-Fast... 'cause sometimes you're just too darn busy!

I have been really a bit crazed in the past three weeks or so.  Life is not 'out of control', but life right now is REALLY REALLY busy!  And in one of those indisputable 'law of attraction' moments in my life, the nice folks at Slim-Fast contacted me asking me if I'd like to try their newly formulated products.  Hmmmmm....

I hesitated to accept at first.  I mean, I am all about whole foods and eating local fresh foods and eating healthy!  When I was relearning how to eat last year through the Vtrim Online I remember one of the changes they encouraged in our behaviors was 'don't drink your calories', so accepting Slim-Fast's generous offer didn't feel like a fit to me.

But then life stepped in.  And I realized that I am going to have to move from the town I've been living in for the past 20 years (my choice for financial reasons) and started working hard to move toward that goal.  I began having less and less free time (more on this later in a separate blog post) and began to skip meals and - worse - much worse - began to then be starving hungry by the time I'd finally get home and would eat like a maniac.  THAT is when I revisited the email offer from Slim-Fast and accepted their offer to send me product. (And wait 'til you read on and see how incredibly generous they are not just to me, but to YOU, too!!)

Guess what - the old Slim-Fast I remember from when I was in my early 30s (no, I'm NOT saying how long ago that!) is replaced with this great tasting Slim-Fast in their way cool redesigned bottle.  And - as it claims - it really does leave you feeling full for 3+ hours!  That surprised the heck out of me.  I've tried both the Strawberries 'n Cream and the Creamy Milk Chocolate shakes and both taste great. I remembered the Slim-Fast shakes as having an after-taste but that is long gone.  And the new design on the bottles makes them so easy to pop into your frig and then grab on-the-go. 

If you've been part of the 90 Day Challenge to Health & Fitness, and you've stuck in there and are in the final 30 day stretch with me, I've got a great surprise and giveaway for you, thanks to the folks at Slim-Fast.  They want to reward your dedication for committing to be healthy and fit and have offered me coupons for Slim-Fast product to give to you.  ADDITIONALLY, they've given me a limited number of Sephora gift cards to send to #hlgFitGift challengers who have stayed with the challenge. All you need to do is follow @SlimFast on Twitter or on Facebook and let me know by commenting that you'd like to receive the coupons to try Slim-Fast. If you're already a Slim-Fast fan, I'd like to hear that, too! I'll contact you directly about the Sephora giveaway from Slim-Fast. : )
THANK YOU for being a part of the 90 Day Challenge and hanging in here.  There are still more giveaways coming in this last home stretch. : )

Dream. Believe. Achieve!

I'm a SlimFast Fan (having a 3-2-1 bar as we speak) and would LOVE to have coupons to try some of their other products!

Within the last week I started with protein drinks again. My hours at work were switched and now I work over dinner. If I take food with me I have no option for heating it up :( or if I just take snacks and eat when I get home I am starving and eat way too much ( I feel your pain there) and like last night don't get to eat until 10 pm. Exercising has never been a problem for me it is always food. I have never tried the SlimFast, maybe this is an offer I need to look in to. Good Luck with your move! I hate moving, seriously hate it. The only reason I moved last time was to get out of a bad situation. I bought a house and moved with in a month. Shockingly as soon as I left that situation I promptly lost 20 lbs... coincidence? I think not. Hope you have a great week. Missed you on Twitter last week so I know you were busy :)

I would love to try slimfast again, I have been afraid to go back to that chalky taste, so glad to hear they fixed that! And like you, I want to eat clean, but sometimes because of time I need something thats already made but saves me time and fills me up.

I'm following SlimFast online! I'm super excited to try it out when I go home and will eat like mad at nights due to many dinners planned. This could be a fantastic way to offset that!
