Getting Active with the Shaklee 180™ Program {#ShakleeBlogger}

Typically when the warm weather of summer arrives, I'm motivated to...

Well, aside from enjoying the sunshine, not much. Pulling out my sandals, I suppose. Digging past my sweatshirts for my tank tops and making a concerted effort to put sunscreen on my kids more often.

But work out?

Meh. I'm more of an excuses type of person, always coming up with ways that I'm too busy or the kids have to be somewhere or dinner needs to be made — pretty much just that life gets in the way.

This summer, however, is different. Thanks to being a part of the Shaklee 180™ blogger program, I'm not only already happy to have lost weight, but I'm actually motivated to add more activity and overall aim to be healthier. Who would have thought that having a delicious smoothee once or twice a day could have made me want to better myself so much?

My current favorite, a Strawberry Mango smoothee (with spinach). Mmmm!

This month I am not only going to marvel at my motivation, I'm going to put it to the test.

That's right, Big Sister E and I (and some friends of ours) are preparing to put on our tennis shoes in two weeks and take on what will surely be a mountain.

The Color Run

Having been recently introduced to the idea of The Color Run, I'm hoping that the crazy chaos of the colors will make the actual 5K run not seem like... well, 5K. For someone that typically gets tired after two minutes of running around in the yard with the kids, running for 3.1 miles is going to be a battle between my willpower and my laziness.

Am I excited? Yes.

Am I scared? Sure am!

Am I thankful to Shaklee 180™ for making me actually want to get up off of my couch and do something incredibly memorable with my daughter that is also going to help in my quest to shed some pounds? Absolutely.

You can do it! This sounds fun. I'm running about 3 miles now and working toward a 10k goal now. I'm really enjoying running!

Sounds great. You are doing a good job on your weight loss. Remember, slow and steady wins the race and keeps it off.
