New Year…New You, it always seems to be someone’s motto around me after the ball drops. But then by the end of January to mid-February, everyone seems to be back to their old habits.
Over the Christmas holiday, I received the #ItsYourThing VoxBox from Influenster and SlimFast. I love the days I receive a new #voxbox because I love product testing! To be honest, I was looking for a way to refresh, just like everyone else but I have never been a show off what you are doing type of person. I am all for a new way of doing things and blogging about it but taking pictures showing people what I am eating really isn’t for me; however, throwing the new SlimFast products into my daily routine when I was on the go was extremely handy.
Brian and I had been trying to get back into our Paleo routine which we had paused over the Christmas Holiday but that has been a different type of struggle and SlimFast is not a Paleo substitute. What I liked about this box was the fact that everything could be eaten on the go. I am really into Protein Shakes right now, so the Slim Fast Advance Nutrition Chocolate Shake was really nice to have at work in the midst of all the project stuff I have going on.
I grabbed the SlimFast Advance Nutrition 100 calorie sour cream and onion baked crisps in between work and practice. Sadly I was disappointed by the staleness of them. I have had better and I think I would lean towards the Special K Sour Cream & Onion Crisp if I was going to have this snack again.
Right before my game later that week after I was running late from a meeting on a day I had missed lunch, I was lucky I had stuck the Meal Replacement Bar in my bag. It kept me satisfied until the end of the game when I could have a real dinner. I don’t know if I would say it was a true meal replacement but it definitely helped keep me focused on my team and not my stomach.
Overall, am I not sold on SlimFast as 100% lifestyle change, I like the protein shakes the best which makes sense because that was their first real product. But I do believe that #ItsYourThing is a great campaign for woman and for anyone who is trying to lead a healthy lifestyle. Because at the end of the day it isn’t about it being a new year or being a new you, it’s about being the best you can be all the time.
