Three Works Apple Chips and Sweaty Bands-Two Things That Have Helped Me Lose Weight

I thought I’d update you all on my progress with my Achieving Life Balance for 2014 goal. Since being diagnosed with hypothyroidism, I’ve lost 14 pounds! Wahoo! And that makes me so happy! It’s been hard work that’s for sure, but so slow. Being hypothyroid makes losing weight so much harder I tell ya. But truth be told, I like that it’s been slow weightloss, as that just means it’ll STAY off. Hopefully!

But I wanted to share a couple of things that have made losing weight fun and easy! And the first one is a snack that’s SO GOOD, I have to share it with you

Three Works Apple Chips are my new favourite snack. What’s different about Three Works Apple Chips is that they’re flavoured Apple Chips! Sure, they have plain ones, but how’s about apple chips with a touch of mango? Or cherry? Or Berry? OR CARAMEL BABY. Three Works Apple Chips are ready to enjoy in all sorts of really delicious crunchy chip flavours and they are non-fried, with no artificial flavours or sugar added.  And they’re gluten free too!

Three Works Apple Chips come in these two-serving cans, and also come in a single serving can too. One serving is 100 Calories and that’s awesome. Oh, and the apple chips aren’t just thrown in the can either-they’re packed in a vacuum-sealed bag to ensure delicious crispiness! You have to try them. You can find Three Works Apple Chips just about everywhere too! Click here to find a retailer near you.

Sweaty Bands

Sweaty Bands have changed my workout life.

Before Sweaty Bands, I used to pin my hair back with a zillion bobby pins before workouts. If there’s one thing I can’t take, it’s hair in my face when I workout. I can’t STAND it. The shorter layers of my hair always slip free from my elastic pony tail holder too and fall into my eyes. But I have found the ultimate hair holder, Sweaty Bands. They’re a hairband made with a ribbon like material that has a signature non-slip velvet backing so they will not slip off, even during a sweaty Zumba workout. They absorb sweat AND stay on my head without slipping off. GENIUS. I only have this one right now, but I plan on getting more. They have loads of designs and different thicknesses too.

I’m a bit paranoid about this trip to California truth be told. I don’t want to gain back any of the weight I’ve lost, so I’m going to try to be careful. But we will be doing a lot of walking, so I shouldn’t worry so much I guess! Plus I plan on exercising too. I’ve downloaded the Zumba App onto my iPad, so I can Zumba in the hotel room if I want to!

Can I look like Gina please? I love her and her hair!

What are some of your low-fat, low calorie snacks?
