Hi, everyone! This is my first post from my new computer! Ant ended up finding a great deal on a Samsung laptop at Best Buy the other day. Not the brand I had planned on going with, but the computer has decent reviews and the deal was too good to pass up. Windows 8 is even more confusing than I had anticipated though, it's so much different than any of the other Windows systems.
Now to the topic at hand... health and weight loss. I'm sure it comes as no surprise when I say I'd like to loose a little weight. I've been thinking about different ways to shed some pounds recently when I had the opportunity to partner with Creative Bioscience for their 90 Day Weight Loss Challenge. After researching the company and their products, I was game!
Of the many products Creative Bioscience offers, I feel like the Green Coffee Bean Pure Extract is the best fit for me. I like that it's all natural and has been known to lower blood pressure in users. Our local NBC news recently did a story on the effects of green coffee bean extract on weight loss which further piqued my interest in trying it.
According to the company you don't have to change your lifestyle in any way to see results with the Green Coffee Bean Pure Extract. Sounds so easy! The website states that a recent study resulted in an average of 17 pounds lost over 12 weeks. However, I'd like to maximize my results and get healthier in general, so I do plan on doing some extra work.
The first thing I plan on doing is adding more exercise to my daily routine. With spring finally on the way here in Chicago I'm excited to use our new stroller regularly for walks around the neighborhood with Harry. Nothing too strenuous but it's better than sitting at home. Our On Demand TV service also offers different workout videos I like to do when I can find the time.
As far as eating healthier goes, I need to cut out my evening snacking. That's my downfall. I eat healthy throughout the day but as soon as 9pm rolls around, my junk food cravings kick in. I know I probably won't be 100%, but I know I can curb some of the snacking and substitute more healthy choices.
I don't have any particular weight loss goal in mind for this challenge. I'd just like to see the number on the scale go down! Envisioning a number feels like I'm setting myself up for failure. If I loose 5 pounds, great. If I loose 10 pounds, even better. And if I only loose 1 pound, so be it.
