Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
so it has been a good month. lots of little goals accomplished. It felt good going into a store and buying outfits without special ordering them. I haven't been able to wear a shirt from walmart since high school but I bought two and wore them. so im excited about that. I find myself eating less and less these days. something about lettuce still makes me sick, I don't get it. my internship has been going good. I just love working with the kids in my little rural schools...induction into phi…Continue

I don't want him morbidly obese like me so I encourage him to eat less fast food etc. baby steps. today I was preparing lunch which was banana, strawberry and blueberry salad in a bowl..I made him one and he ate it..just shocked...gonna make him one daily when I make mine…Continue
so far this month has been a rollercoaster of emotions...lately all I want is grapefruit and bananas. was in the health food store today and my brother bought something called BLK, it looks like coke, but its water. of course we have a constant argument about his water intake which is barely any..19 years and counting I might add so he bought it and had some. I tasted it, just water but ill stick to my clear water lol. got blueberries and strawberries for the week.
no weight loss this week, but actually gain..say what..its alright..not enough exercise plus been feeling yucky all week..not going there lol...gonna try harder next week...not giving up..thanks for all the wonderful comments..you guys rock..classes start back next week..my last semester and really excited..didn't know much..all this rain has crawled in my spirit somehow if thats even possible..be blessed everyone!!

I just love the feel of a new year...a clean slate as if the etch a sketch has been shook clean and im the master of the dials..what to draw. So I went last night and spent 2 hours in the produce section getting the things for my new life style. Every year I say I am going to do this and that and always fail, so for this year, there are not any new year resolutions..I am going to strive to do the best I can everyday and live my life healthy and happy. I hope everyone had a safe and Happy New…Continue
So I got up super early and went to another town to the farmers market but oh so worth it. I got peaches, blueberries, cucumbers, tomatoes, okra, and corn. Going back next month for more stuff. Been feeling really good and eating healthier. So happy. Got my workout music mix together and put it on my player. Hope everyone is well, blessings to all!!
So I got discouraged and quit like I have done so many times..so many changes in my life right now. Graduated now in graduate school.. so far so good..left my job to focus on school..personal things in my life is going crazy...emotions everywhere..taking all my strength not to drown myself in sweets, but I know what I have to do. Walking actually helps the emotions...no one can tell if you are crying or sweating in this heat...fruit and vegetables are good and home grown too. One day at a…Continue
Day 9 has been the worst. My mom cooked me cabbage and I couldn't eat it. I weighed and it said that I gained weight and I was like HOW. UGH. Was so hungry that I just went to walk because I almost ate the cabbage. Dang this food addiction. Tomorrow will be better!
Just got my pineapple and kale. the store was out. Day 6, kinda rough today, but I juiced me some grapes and had my water so it was alright! Cravings are still here, but I know whats more important. This research paper is going to make me bald headed. Well tomorrow is a whole new day. Be Blessed everyone!!
Day three begins. Not feeling top notch, but not dead so its a good thing. celery juice is a dose, but its all good. apple made it better lol. Got my carrot, watermelon, celery and apple juice all ready for today. 14 hour shift, gonna be awesome. My folks are supportive which is good, although they haven't changed their eating habits. I wish they would try the juice with me. Who knows, they might one day!!
I watched fat, sick, and nearly dead and oh man it blew my mind and so I finally broke down and committed to a juice fast. Been feeling crazy tired and constantly on the go, my diet has not been the best so I went and got all my greens etc to juice and a ton of fruit. Today I have had water and orange juice. I am surprised that I do not feel hungry, but nope not at all. Hope everyone is doing well..off to study..be blessed everyone!
I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year filled with love and happiness. Going to ring in the new year on the phone with my family and with my kiddos at work. So glad 2012 is here. Cannot wait to see what happens. God Bless you all!!
Been so long since I updated. These last few weeks have been crazy. Between the semester ending and work and the break up, ugh..I don't know why I have not drowned myself in a bucket of ice cream, but I HAVEN'T. I have got to find me an alternative for ranch dressing, I don't eat much of it, but its addictive.I cannot wait for the new year because of so many possibilities. So much good stuff is coming I can feel it. Graduation, hopefully a full time job in my field as well as my job I still…Continue
So, great day, great weekend ahead.Work, but I love the kids I work with so its a win win. Finally in the 300's. Been years since that happened. Met Paula Deen today, super nice. Can't use her cookbook, but its all good. Hope everyone has a blessed weekend.
3 pounds away from a new weight bracket, haven't seen the 3s in a long time. Work has been crazy, school is crazy, life is amazing though. Just not enough hours to do everything I want to do. Watched Mr. Bill's video about 5 gallons of juice, such a wonderful role model for me. He has achieved so much, so happy for him. Can't wait to see what is next in his life. Blood sugar is NORMAL, so happy about that. Don't know much, be blessed everyone!!
