Oh my gosh I cannot believe it is a new year! It seems like just yesterday I was starting my amazing Atkins Journey! It has been a great few months and I couldn’t be more excited about how far I’ve come! Not only have I lost an amazing 25 lbs, but I have gained a completely new outlook on food and eating right! Atkins has changed my life and my husband’s life and also my 70-year-old mom’s life! Both my husband and mom started Atkins after they saw how awesome I was feeling and the weight I was loosing!

So as I mentioned it’s a new year and you know what that means? New Year’s Resolutions and declarations! Last year my resolutions were…well lets say ho-hum. This year I am starting the year healthier, happier and lighter all thanks to eating right with Atkins and working out! Today I would love to share some of my “Fitness” 2015 declarations of change with you!

2015:

  • Hit my goal weight! {Last year I wouldn’t have even thought this was kind of possibility}
  • Share my Atkins success though my blog and reach people who maybe haven’t heard about it!
  • Become a personal trainer {or at least start my schooling!!}
  • Run a 5k at least every other month! {I’ve checked locally and there is a 5k every month, I will be doing my first ever 5k in 2 week and I cannot wait…far cry from last year…I wouldn’t have even considered doing a 5k}

For the first time in a VERY long time I am excited about the new year, I’m excited about my birthday, I’m excited about summer and I know that Atkins helped me get to this point!

So far in my Atkins journey I have fallen in love with Atkins Meal Bars, Frozen Dinners , Breakfast Sandwiches and Endulge Treats! The entire Atkins line is AHHHHmazing and I have saved my favorite Atkins product for last! Introducing my “Will never leave home without it” and “My fridge is always stocked with..” favorite….drum roll please….

Atkins Shakes!!! Ta Dah!

Seriously have you tried these? Wow they are amazingly delicious! My absolute favorite in the Dark Chocolate Royale Shake {they have a bunch of different flavors like, Mocha, Latte, Vanilla, Milk Chocolate and Fruit shakes} I have tried all the favors and they are ALL delicious…I just REALLY LOVE Dark Chocolate 😉

You may be sitting there reading this thinking “Yuck I have had “Diet” shakes and they gritty, tasteless and all around nasty” and honestly I know what you mean…I have had some of those too..yuck! But, let me be clear with you about one thing…That is NOT what Atkins shakes are like! They are Smooth, thick and creamy…and taste divine!

They are extremely portable, I always have one in my purse or stashed in the glove box!

They bottles have a screw on lid so you don’t have to drink it all at once or don’t have to worry about it getting knocked over {with three kids, 2 dogs and a cat that is something I really have to consider}

You can add ice and make the most delicious frozen shake ever!

The main reason I love these shakes it because they fit my life! I’m a chocolate lover like I mentioned  and I’m trying to lose weight…generally those two things do not go hand in hand, but with Atkins they do!

The Dark Chocolate Royale Shake has 2g of carbs and only 160 calories! I can feel like I’m really indulging but at the same time know that I am not completely ruining all my hard work!

My favorite ways to enjoy my Atkins Shake:

  • Blended with ice to make a yummy frozen shake
  • With fruit as a start to my morning or after a morning work out
  • As a pick me up when it feels like it 9pm and its only 1pm
  • As an energy boost when I’m out shopping or on the go and don’t want to ruin my eating plan

The bottom line is that I HIGHLY recommend these awesome shakes {and the entire Atkins line to anyone!}

So tell me…How do you enjoy your Atkins shakes?
