I finished month 2 of the Shaklee 180 program.
Have I lost more weight? Yes.
Have I lost more inches? Yes.
Will I tell you how much? No.
BECAUSE THAT WOULD DEFEAT THE PURPOSE OF MY BIG REVEAL TOMORROW.
I’ve decided to do this real regular-like every month. Each month, I’m going to show you a video diary on a Thursday. I’ll reveal personal, intimate details of my life and diet. Or not. And then on a Friday, I’ll post all the embarrassing and revealing pictures and results and you can see if I actually remembered to brush my hair this time. (Spoiler alert: I didn’t)
So instead of a heartfelt video this month, I’m bringing you a little kitchen how-to video. I’m talking about the Shaklee 180 Smoothee – the core of the program. Because I already know you’re thinking, yeah, I don’t want to do a diet where I actually have to drink my meals.
And to that I say, WRONG, SIR. WRONG.
You don’t know how to make a good smoothie is all. So I’m going to show you.
Or I was going to show you and then the video was 11 minutes long. So I edited it down to 4 minutes. Sorry if it tests your attention span. That was the best I could do.
The base: Chocolate, Vanilla, or Strawberry Energizing Smoothee Mix (2 scoops)
The liquid: Plain Unsweetened Almond Milk (8 oz.)
The cold stuff: Ice
For chocolate, I like to add any combination of the following:
- Peanut butter (only a little – HIGH FAT)
- Mint extract (think Thin Mints)
For strawberry, I might add:
- Fresh strawberries
- Coconut extract
For vanilla, you can practically make a dessert:
- Peaches, vanilla extract (Peaches ‘n Cream)
- Canned pumpkin, cinnamon (Pumpkin Pie)
- Canned pineapple, coconut extract (Pina Colada)
I bet that’s way more variety than you usually have for breakfast or lunch anyway. Help me out. What’s a good combination you think I should try? I’m not afraid! Leave me your ideas and I’ll talk about them next month!
P.S. If you love my blender and feel like you have to buy one, I have an affiliate link for Vitamix over there in my sidebar or just click through and buy two or three. They make great gifts.
(And don’t forget to come back tomorrow for hopefully less embarrassing photos as I reveal my progress for the last 30 days!)
