#ItsYourThing Product Testing

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.

On the go snackOver 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.

busy at work snackBrian 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.#slimfast

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.

#ItsyourthingThe 100 calorie cinnamon bun swirl crisps were a nice sweet treat.  There is nothing super special about them; however, I liked them more than the other 100 calorie pack I received.

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.
