Day 1: Setting the Tone

Today is the first day of my journey to a healthier life. I started with setting a goal to have two Herbalife meal replacement shakes each day for the next 30 days. I have enjoyed the ease and convenience of Herbalife shakes over the last couple years and I know they will make my goal more attainable. The point of the shakes is to cut down on caloric intake, but they still give me the nutrition that I need to get throught the day.
Eating record for Day 1:
For breakfast I had a Dutch Chocolate meal replacement shake.
Mid-morning I had some cheese, summer sausage and crakers.
Lunch was a #1 Chick-fil-a combo with a Diet Lemonade. (The only thing I changed all day in my diet was swapping my usual breakfast with a shake.)
Tonight my husband and I headed to our YMCA gym for a good 45 minute workout--oh it felt good to be back on that elliptical. Then for dinner tonight I had another meal replacement shake with a side salad and small (1.5oz) salmon filet. (I should have only had the shake, but couldn't resist the salad too...oh well, I just need to take baby steps.)
Now I'm in the mood to bake something! I LOVE to bake, always have, always will. Overall, I feel like my first day on this journey has set a good tone. I have room to improve (of course), but I'm optimistic that I'm moving in the right direction.


  1. KB, I love the new goal! Good for you. I love summer sausage while backpacking, but have you tried turkey pepperoni? It's really tasty and a bit less fattening.

  2. Working out at the Y for 45 minutes -- good for you! It always helps to have someone to work out with, too. And I like your "I don't have to do this perfectly" attitude. It will keep you moving forward.
