I mentioned at the beginning of the year that my phrase for this year is Aspire and Inspire.
To that end, when people ask me about how I have lost weight and profess that they want to have a healthier life, it gives me carte blanche to lend a helping hand! With some of my friends I find myself doing extra exercise so that they have someone who will support them (and, realistically, it is also good for me as the more exercise I do, the better it is for my own health).
Last week I lost 0.6 pounds, which is nothing to complain about but I know I still have to find a way to step up my game!
So when I heard about the My Special K website, I decided to sign up because there are a number of benefits to using this site. I knew if I liked this site I’d be sharing it with my friends and others who want to lose weight and have a healthier lifestyle.
When I went to site to sign up, I learned that there were being benefits to this program.
First of all, it is free! I know that is great for me — I’ve seen other online programs I’d love to use but I just can’t justify the expense — on the My Special K you get all of the benefits with no cost!
Other things you can do on the myspecialk.ca site include the option to:
- Log my mood, weight and exercise activities every day.
- Get help to burn off calories with work out tips and a daily fitness plan that is designed just for me (and you will get one designed for you)!
- Share daily or weekly meal plan with friends or family, via an email link or a hardcopy printout. I really like this option because I send daily updates to my support as a way of being accountable so now I can just email them and have all my records in one place!
Now that I’ve found this site, I’m going to be using it daily!
I also discovered that Special K has a promotion on right now to help you look your best while working out! Comfort is always an issue for me — I like feeling comfortable when I work out, but I also don’t want to share too many of the bumps and lumps that I have (evne though they are getting smaller!). When I had the chance to on my Special K tank top made by New Balance, I was impressed! The top felt comfortable and also had a slimming effect. I’ve been wearing it to exercise at home and plan on using it once I tone up my arms a bit more (I know…I shouldn’t be self-conscious but I am!).
Special K has shown that it is more than just a brand of cereal — it now provides a variety of tasty products (such as their breakfast sandwiches, shakes, bars and chips) and a site to help us all get healthy!
