Running and Vertigo.. A Tale of Month 5 .. #ShakleeBlogger #shaklee180 #sponsored

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post as part of the Shaklee Corporation blogger program. I have received free products, online support and incentives for participating. My opinions are my own. People following the weight-loss portion of the Shaklee 180™ Program can expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week.

Month 5 has been insane !

I started off by participating in my 1st run!
It was a 1 mile that began at 11pm.
I'm grateful for my hubby pushing me towards the finish line.

Just days after the event, somehow, I knocked something loose in my head/ears and was diagnosed with Vertigo. Almost 2 weeks of no exercise due to the spinning room/nausea.

My baby brother came in from Afghanistan on a 15 day leave pass. He has changed his Physical Fitness Regiment and helped boost my fitness desire. He even took me to have my feet checked and look at "Running" shoes.

2 men in my life helping me to be healthier ! LOVE IT !!!

My eating habits slid down this month. It's my own fault.

In spit of this, I did still lose some inches. Unfortunately, taking my measurements and weight just a couple days short of my "curse" resulted in a bloated number and additional numbers to the scale. Ladies, you know what I'm talking about.

This month I can only boast an inch loss of 1.4" and a weight gain of 1 pound.
Overall, I've lost 20.6" and lost 5 pounds

One more month to go, and there is no sign of it being a calm one!

I'm gonna grab this month and make it amazing !!!! Weight Loss is going to happen !!

Who's With me !!!


  1. I am sorry to hear about your vertigo, I hope it gets better and that you can run again. That is so nice about your brother coming to see you.I hope that you have fun with him. Exercising for me is important, too! It helps me sleep!

  2. Great job running! It is definitely hard work! I too am on a weight loss journey/lifestyle. Its challenging but rewarding!

  3. Setbacks are always a little depressing once you make the commitment to become healthier. My journey started last year. I could barely run for 30 seconds. Some months and 60 lbs of weightloss later, I was running 11+ miles at a time (NO STOPPING TO WALK!!). It was an amazing feeling of accomplishment and I felt so confident. Like you, I'm dealing with a pretty major setback. I have 2 bulging discs from a work injury that are expected to put me out for a YEAR! The doctor says that I will be able to run again in the future (not for a year though), so I'm just holding on to that. Hang in there mama!
