Shakin Up New Year's Resolutions

We are already half way through January and I hear the comments in the line at the Giant Eagle ... "I hate to diet!" "Yeah, I already gave up on my new year's resolutions." "I am always hungry when I use meal replacement shakes." So ... I butt in .... with words of encouragement!  "Don't give up, so you break your resolution today ... start again tomorrow." OR ... I say, "Just view your resolution as a LIFE RESOLUTION! Not a new years ... then you won't feel like if you mess up in the middle of January, you have failed, cause you have your whole life for success."

And what is the number one New Year's Resolution?  To lose weight ... To make it a LIFE RESOLUTION, change the wording ... and be specific but giving your self something to work towards other than a number.

Like:  I resolve to live a healthy lifestyle by reading labels and cutting out HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) and walking three times a week for 20 minutes. 

Now that is something you can do and if you fall off the wagon, tomorrow is a new day.

By just replacing one meal a day with a meal replacement shake will cut calories and fat!  So if you start your day with that shake, you are probably adding another component to a healthy lifestyle and that would be breakfast.  It is reported that 50% of Americans either skip breakfast or eat high sugar/calorie breakfasts, another study reported that 40% of the participates thought coffee was enough for breakfast.  It has been proven over and over again that those that eat breakfast keep their overall body weight lower and perform at higher levels at their jobs and in school.  So why not start it off with a meal replacement shake ... Become Beauty has a two wonderful vegetarian (they do contain dairy products) flavors in the Figure 1st Weight Management Program.  Just last night some of my clients tried both flavors and commented that they were delicious, not chalky or gritty like some they had tried before.  They are also satisfying and filling. 
When I have one in the morning before my class ... I feel great and don't crave sweets after class.  I know that when lunch time comes around I am ready for salad or soup!
What makes them different ...
Here are the facts ... 
Become’s unique line of nutraceuticals combines precise blends of clinically proven natural ingredients with delivery systems that can be absorbed more effectively than traditional weight loss products. Figure 1st is designed to support and enhance your healthy eating and exercise program so you see and feel maximum results in minimum time.
What are Nutraceuticals?
The term “nurtraceuticals” defines a quality of ingredients with proven pharmaceutical performance. Unlike a typical supplements + vitamins, the scientific promise of a nutraceutical is prevention and repair at a cellular level. Become products only utilize premium nutraceutical ingredients in their formulations. 

The Vanilla is my favorite .. because I like to mix it with juice and fruit.  It is enhanced with Super CitriMax® + fibre to keep you feeling full for loner. This protein shake packed with vitamins and minerals, as well as 16 grams of protein, gets you from breakfast to lunch or snack time to dinner every day! The shake has SuperCitrimax that is a patented weight loss supplement that has a two-fold action: to curb appetite and burn fat. It is made from garcinia cambogia - a small South American fruit that looks like a pumpkin.  Here is how it works ... The extract of this fruit is hydroxycitric acid (HCA). It prevents excess carbohydrates from being turned into fat. At the same time, SuperCitramax sends a message to the brain to tell you that you're full. Genius! 

So try a shake today and shake that News Year's Resolution into a LIFE RESOLUTION!

I spend too much of my time

Thinking … Thinking ….
I know I say I am fine
But really …. really
You are always on my mind

When I wake I think of you
Early … Always at 5 …
Then I feel low and so blue
But really … really
It is time to take the clue

I wanted you more then gold
You are worth it ALL …
For your love I would have sold
Everything …. Everything
Going forth would be so bold

Now I know the mask you hide
Hiding … hiding …
Some might say that you just lied
But really … really
Your heart can not testify

Love comes to you only this time
Loving … Love
You would have been always mine
To always come and go
Now my heart has not a chime
