Sometimes Eating The Wrong Things Really Makes You Love The Right Ones!

Friday, May 27, 2011

Since my surgery, it's been so hard to get back on the working out everyday wheel again. I tried now several times and it's frustrating. I have lowered my calories to reflect no exercise so I stay within my boundaries and I hate that! LOL

Since the earthquake my business has suffered and now I have gotten a great job offer and start working full time Monday...plus seeing my weight loss clients on the side...plus writing a book and in works with people in the states to get it out and developed....LOL Ummm...I have to be honest...sometimes big dreamers get a little overwhelmed when EVERYTHING they have in their brain starts coming to fruition. I am just trying to breathe and be grateful for all these opportunities. :) It's so exciting and scary at the same time.

The book/invention I am working on is health and weight loss related and I am looking for your favourite healthy - clean breakfast, lunch, dinners and snack recipes/choices with calories..etc. SOOOOO THIS IS A LOT OF MOTIVATION to get the rest of the pounds off so when I am holding my product it is with PURE confidence and success in my one right and not just "on the way". Very cool!

I have also realized that even little sour jelly candy can make my tummy feel not so great....so I have learned to actually miss healthy food. It makes me feel great and proud!

    It is easy to get overwhelmed so most importantly put YOU first then the rest will fit in

    Clean eating is great, I had the option to drink soda today and eat fried food and went for some healthier options and realized how much better tasting it was then the bad stuff! Spark on!

When You're Not Perfect, The Fire Brigade Shows Up!

Saturday, May 07, 2011

Today I was working at Anytime Fitness and everything went smoothly and I had a great day...until I tried to close and set the security alarm. I normally have issues with it...but nothing that a great whack doesn't help! Today was different! It was saying unable to arm in 2 areas instead of the main door which is usually the problem since the quake....fast forward....as I do what I normally do, I accidentally hit the wrong button and hit a fire alarm!! I thought stopped it, but no! As I am outside trying to get the door to work, the security company rings but I don't answer Sooooooo The fire brigade is dispatched and they can't be stopped (called down) once they are. So...2 BIG Fire trucks and the boys showed up, I try to act like the sweet dumb American blonde and explain. Then, I still have the problem of the alarm not setting! So I now had to call the security company who dispatches another security company and they come and try to figure it out and can't....and then...I call the owner and hand the phone over and she all of a sudden says something about a box in the back office....is it open? Yes! Close it. Freaking everything is fine!!! Couldn't believe it!! Seriously. Of course She seemed upset, but how the heck would I know that if I was never told!? I sat and was stressed and felt stupid and embarrassed.

After a couple hours I calmed down, told everyone on Facebook and then thought....why am I so wound up? It was an accident! I did the best I could, they should fix the freaking alarm and maybe mention the box if it doesn't work...I did the best I could with the information I was given. Then I realized that is the weight loss and nutrition work as well. Nobody's perfect. We'll all have a messed up day once in awhile...maybe it's because you had to have emergency surgery, maybe it's because you celebrate a bit too hard, maybe you have a natural disaster happen and most stores are closed....this all happened to me by the way in the last 2 months! But the point is you commit to yourself to do the best you can with what you have and what you know to be true. And YOU FORGIVE yourself with things that are out of your control or were accidents. I tell my clients that all the time...and I believe it...just never thought I would call the fire brigade on a Saturday afternoon in May! :)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend everyone and be kind to yourself.

Still Not Up to 100% :( Grrrrr

Thursday, May 05, 2011

So I think I may have done too much Monday...was nice and sore, and I really loved it...but my body I think is still recovering a bit! I am so impatient! LOL

So..just been focusing on food this week and moving when I can. It's been raining heaps and poor dog hasn't even been walking. We're both itching...while mama recovers, nobody walks Max so he's bored! LOL

Been having lots of headaches and really tired again. I think it's almost like detox since surgery! So...not too much to report on...sorry! :) Have a great weekend!

    Ouch! I'm always amazed at how our bodies recover from surgery. Never know what we are going to feel, etc. Keep listening to your body while also doing what you need to do! Sounds like you are doing well!

Hospital Visit & New Business

Friday, April 22, 2011

I thought I pulled something a couple days ago and ended up with pain. After a couple days of it, I went back to the doctor hoping I didn't tear anything they did with taking my appendix out...they sent me to the hospital where I stayed from 11:30 AM - 9:00 PM and then was released after blood was shed, needles were inserted, and a CT scan was done...nothing wrong..just muscle strain! :) YEA...so I could finally eat! WHOO HOO! That Subway veggie Delight was Da Bomb! :)

On another Note, If anyone already shops online at Amazon, maybe you could take a little detour and help me out. When you go to my website, it'll take you to online shopping and when you purchase, I get a little bit...and I would really love to go and visit my family back in the states...which will cosy about $5000+ to do...that's why I haven't been home in a very long time. So if you could help, great...even just spreading the word would be fabulous!!! And much appreciated! Thanks so much! Just trying this system out to see how it goes...fingers crossed! :)

    I'm so glad it's just a pulled muscle - although that hurts and takes forever to fully heal too! Ugh for you! I liked your last blog with how much you are a work-a-holic. I'm a somewhat recovered work-a-holic. It's great when you do what you love though. It sounds like you are awesome at what you do too! Hope you had a good Easter weekend and start getting around again soon!

I checked out your site. I'm going to try and buy a few things this weekend and see how it goes. I really want the EA Sports Active 2 game, but my hubby has banned me from buying anymore games/dvds such as this for a little bit. lol I might just get it anyway though. Where'd this come from? hmm.. lol.. I'm not sure hunny... lol..

Wishing you a speedy recovery!
