Summer Slimdown

This is a sponsored post but opinions and suggestions are all mine.

Okay Ladies,

Summer is just a couple of days away and if you’re anything like me, you have been struggling with your new mama bod. I have my moments where I work out for a couple of weeks or even a whole month straight (gasp) but it doesn’t happen very often.

So I decided to get a little help from my friends over at SlimQuick. I’ve seen their products on the shelves from drink mixes, capsules and gummies.  Now they’ve added their new SLIMQUICK  Pure Protein Supplement specifically designed for us lovely ladies.

I was asked to write a review about their product and there isn’t a better time like the present and a few days away from summer being officially here. I said why not? Couldn’t hurt and I’d lose a few pounds extra.

I had never taken any protein shakes before so I wasn’t sure what to expect but I gotta tell you.

It was YUMMY!

I’m not a sweets kind of person so I was a little hesitant to try it. I opted for the french vanilla flavor but it also comes in double chocolate. SLIMQUICK Pure Protein tastes incredibly delicious and provides 20 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber per day!

You drink 4 oz serving in the morning with food and a serving 6 hours later with a snack or meal. I decided the easiest way to do this was using a water bottle of mine and my measuring cup, I mixed the protein powder with the 4 oz of water in the measuring cup and then poured it into my water bottle and shake until it’s all incorporated, drink and ENJOY!

Something else to add; SlimQuick offers a weight loss community that anyone can be a part of. You can join the community on the company website and have access to mix and match meal plans, workout exercises and 24/7 emotional support. SlimQuick is a huge supporter in the healthy lifestyle movement and so am I.

So if you’ve been needing that extra nudge, today is the day. Head over to their website and see where to buy, be sure to check out all of their other fabulous weight-loss products.
As with any diet program, consult your physician prior to starting any new diet or exercise routine. This product is to be used in conjunction with a a low calorie diet and regular exercise.

Battling Postpartum Weight

36 weeks pregnant

So I gained about 37-39 pounds during pregnancy. I didn’t weigh myself my last week of being pregnant so I’m not entirely sure but it should be around that.

I’m currently weighing 137.2 pounds as of today but it fluctuates between 136 and that, depends on the goodies I’ve consumed or not during my day. 
When I found out I was pregnant I was 4 weeks and weighing 129 pounds.  I stopped breastfeeding about 3 weeks ago. 🙁 (I’ll write about that on another post)
Anyhow, I’ve read that your body keeps those last 10 pounds while breastfeeding.. Maybe it doesn’t happen to everyone but it did happen to me. Ever since I’ve stopped I’ve gone down 2-3 lbs.
Now this is where the problem is…. I’m either too tired to exercise or too busy, most of the times both. Let’s not forget I’ve had major abdominal surgery which still kinda scares me to do many movements (I’m a sissy) – at 6 months I should apparently be all good… We’re almost there!And following a healthy food plan is not easy. I eat whenever I can, whatever I can… Just a few moments ago I was eating chips (hey, at least they were baked.. It’s veggie!)
Baby was hungry and so was I.. So I did the sensible thing. Grabbed a bag and his bottle and both of us were happy. Although he gets cuter and I ? Well… Not so cute. Ok…I’m not that bad but I could stand to lose 10-15 lbs… Maybe 20. 
So when will this actually take off? Who knows. I take care of 97% of all things Baby. Occasionally someone will pick Nico up or something. My job is 24/7 literally. God will have to intervene and give me divine strength to actually follow a workout/meal plan.
How about you? Any tips on losing the baby weight? Getting an exercise plan in place? I would love to know!!

Also!! Happy 5 months to this cutie pie! Mama loves you!
