Slimfessions

This post brought to you by Slimfast. All opinions are 100% mine.
Alright, Thanksgiving is over. I don't know about you but I'm definitely feeling the weight I gained. With holiday parties coming up, I need to keep my butt in check, literally.

This is the hardest time of the year (for me) to stay healthy and slim. But I'm going to attempt it. No really, I am. The pounds have crept up on me recently and it's high time I take some action.
I'm going to start really small and hope that I can reach those goals- fingers crossed.
So here's my plan:

Here I am, planning.

- Workout at least 3 times a week. Can be anything, and needs to be at least 20 minutes.
- Plan ahead- this is where I fail with lunch. When I plan ahead I make healthier choices. So Sundays I'm going to grill chicken for the next 5 days.
- Portion control- It's the holidays, so sweets are all around. Just this week I have 4 different parties/get togethers to attend. So I'm not going to cut it out entirely, I just can't have 10 of everything.
-Hang this old pic of Britney on my fridge, as a reminder. 
-Lastly, well...you'll have to visit the Slimfession tumblr to check out my video and my Slimfession!


I've partnered with Slimfast and shared my Slimfession at #Slimfessions! (I even made a video, you can check it out there.) You can submit your Slimfessions- it's anonymous! We all have motivations for staying slim or getting into shape, so share your story or message and use the hashtag: #Slimfessions

What's your #Slimfession? Do you have a plan to stay healthy over the holidays?

  2. Love that pic of Britney....she literally had the best stomach....what did she use to do like a thousand crunches a day?? Honestly who has time for that??? That's awesome you are starting up the healthy challenge. I posted a fun workout playlist even though i know you probably have some killer Ultra songs of your own!

  3. I have trouble staying slim over the holidays too. The pounds have been really creeping up! Funny how I come across your post because I was just thinking I really need to watch what I eat. I'm having fruits for lunch as I speak! Gonna check out your slimfession and I may even make one since it's anonymous. Thanks Helene.

  4. LOL, Britney was what, 16 or 17 in that photo??? Everyone looked like that when they were 17! Hell, Britney doesn't even look like that anymore. But yes, I too have seen the numbers go up on the scale and need to try to be a bit healthier this holiday season.

  5. I am trying to lose weight again, also. Especially since I want babies soon. I used to half freeze slim fasts and eat them as smoothies. hahaha

  6. The holidays kill me!!! I have been good and stuck to working out Monday-Friday before work but I can not and will not resist Christmas cookies. Or egg nog. Or hot chocolate. Or smores. Or pie. I have a problem....

  7. It's all about portion control, and getting that heart rate up a few times per week. You've got this, Lene!!

  8. You could eat the Tidy Cats on top of the fridge! JK. Anyway-- I was doing some research on meal plans and healthy eating yesterday and I found some great, healthy recipes including chicken and they suggested using greek yogurt (with spices) instead of mayo.. among other things. I'd be happy to send some your way if interested. I've been trying to slim Rob down so he will stop complaining-- although no matter how healthy I cook at home, I can't control what he does at work when I am not around.

  9. So, when you're all slimmed down are you going to post a side-by-side with you and Britt competing for best abs? :) No doubt you'd win and that you'd look amazing in silver drawstring drawers.

  10. Not gaining weight over the holidays is hard, good luck!

  11. I find trying to lose weight in December is depressing, more difficult than ever and semi pointless. I usually end up trying too hard and gaining weight lol. Sounds crazy but.. I try to be good and then I binge like a mother fucker at Christmas parties and dinners and it's better for me to just tell myself to not GAIN weight and refresh after the holidays. Best of luck - you're a CHAMP.

  12. OMG that picture of Britt is AMAZING and makes me sad about my abs! Good luck, girl!

  14. I am a freaking heifer right now. I've already added my holiday weight and the holidays are still in swing! I need to cut sweets, add veggies, and move more.

  15. Good Luck Helene!! I have been working out 4X a week for the past 2 weeks and hope to continue it period lol but I take it one day and week at a time.. I get a bit overwhelmed and intimidated if I think too much far ahead. :) Have a great one and enjoy the challenge! -Iva

  16. slimfessions, huh? better than when they tried to get me to make cocktails (booze and a diet shake? that makes sense!)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I need to get on a plan, FAST! All I do is eat treats...all day, every day.

  18. My best friend and I are training for a half marathon so that should keep me in shape. Well, it should....but I'm pretty sure I only run so that I can eat all the things!

  19. Britney... *drool* This is the WORST time of year when it comes to eating well.

  20. Join the club Helene! All the coooool kids are trying to lose some weight...

  21. We all have to be careful around the holidays! Portion control really is key.

  22. Oh, the Britney abs. Good luck on sticking to your plan! I always plan.. and then I fail at my plans because I get lazy. That is my problem. I need to learn a plan that I don't get lazy on!!

  23. I haven't had slimfast in YEARS but I'd be lying if I said I didn't love it! Those vanilla shakes tasted delicious and were filling. Great- now I want a slimfast!
