Because all parents need their health to help them have fun, I have a treat for you….read on!

A few years ago I became aware of the fact that if I did not take care of myself as a mom, I was not able to properly take care of others. I learned I needed to make sure I got sleep, I ate, and got some exercise. I could see the toll my bad habits were taking on my health, not just physically but mentally, as well. So I made an effort to take charge and do better. It has been three years and last January I made a goal to buckle down and loose my last 25 lbs of weight. I thought that if I really focused and went to the gym 4-6 times a week and watched what I ate that I would lose it in no time. As of a month ago, I had only lost 5 lbs after all my hard work and figured I would not make my end of the year goal. It was frustrating!

And then I saw this picture and her story on a fellow blogger’s site…

When I came across, to be honest, I was there just to see what this lady claimed was her secret and move on. I saw the phrase, “LIVE THE LIFE is not a quick-fix, it’s not even a diet, it is an easy to follow, step-by-step system that establishes habits and practices that lead to a lean, healthy, maintainable body” and I was intrigued, because that is what I wanted. I did not want a quick-fix, I wanted something long-term. Their entire business is built upon the concept of building healthy habits for a lifetime.

So, I decided to give their 7 Day Challenge a try. After the second day, I loved how I felt and I knew that I wanted more. Before I always was super tired around 10 am and 3 pm. That would be when I would have a little chocolate or whatever else was on hand. With the Challenge, those tired times were gone and I did not miss my sugar/chocolate as much as I thought I would.

You have probably thought this or something similar, “I just want someone to tell me what to do so I can get in shape.” I know I have!

What you get with the LIVE THE LIFE program: 

  • A 12 week program
  • Custom meal plans
  • Grocery lists for each meal plan
  • Food that is easily found at any grocery store
  • Custom workouts
  • Day to day accountability
  • Help when you need it via email or phone
  • Teach you how to master the 7 keys to shed the fat away forever

I love everything about this program! They have taken all the guess work out of my weight loss journey. There is no more wondering if I am eating enough or working out too much/too little. There is no more constantly thinking about my weight! Instead, I am eating great meals, learning more about nutritious meal options, loving my workouts, sharing my new habits with my family and losing weight all at the same time. Now, my only problem is making sure I have enough food on hand because my kids are eating all my food!!

After 3 weeks on the program (1 week of it the 7-Day Challenge) I have lost 7 lbs and over 3 inches between my hips and waist! I could not be happier about my results. And if you are like me, when you find something you love you tell everyone….
I am excited to announce that one lucky reader will win a
Full 12 week LIVE THE LIFE program from Kristi Approved. (a retail value of $149).
