Today’s post is sponsored by Smoothie King, but my content and love for their Meal Replacement Smoothies is all my own! Take the challenge as part of a low-calorie diet and daily exercise program. Weight loss depends on individual needs.
It's time to face the cold, hard facts. I put on a few pounds over the holidays. I've been in denial about it long enough, but I'm now to the point where it's almost impossible to jump, squat, and squeeze into my jeans. It's either buy new jeans (I'd rather have my wisdom teeth pulled!) or cut the crap eating and add in a few more classes to my fitness routine.
The stores are already putting out flip flops and swimsuits, which is a definite reminder that summer is right around the corner. Since summer bodies are made in the winter, right now is the time to kick it into gear by getting my fitness routine in check and eating under control. Jason gained a few extra pounds as well these past few months, and it's not that I'm happy about that, but I am glad that he's ready to get back into shape too. I'll have a workout buddy so we can help keep each other on track and motivated to reach our fitness goals. So, what's on our goal list? Drop a few pounds each, get toned, and add more fruits and veggies into our daily diets. To help keep us on the right path to achieving out goals, we're both taking the Smoothie King Change A Meal Challenge.
You all know how much I love a good smoothie, especially after my workout, so when I heard about the Smoothie King Change A Meal Challenge, I was all about joining in! So, how does this challenge work? It's simple!
•Set a fitness goal
•Replace one meal a day with a Meal Replacement Smoothie from Smoothie King
•Eat other sensible meals throughout the day
•Exercise 30 minutes a day

How simple is that!?
There are over 20 different Meal Replacement Smoothies in the Change A Meal Challenge, all under 400 calories (based on the 20 ounce cup size) and with at least 10 grams of protein to help you sip your way to your goal weight.
