OMG It's 10:30 and I've only consumed 1234 calories!?!?

Thursday, May 12, 2011

I started working for a health and wellness company in February and I've actually recently started using some of their supplements and nutritional foods. I started using a patented pre-workout bar that IS DELECTABLE and it MASSIVELY helped me in my workout to be able to go harder, stronger and longer! It helps reduce the buildup of lactic acid, the "fatigue pain" we all are so familiar with in our workouts.
And I started taking their vitamin that has a unique exclusive delivery to mimick nature with natural occurring compounds that ACTUALLY ABSORB instead of creating more free radicals! Did you know that most synthetic supplements have little absorbency because they use a form of a nutrient that is not able to be absorbed by the body? Take it from someone who's been working in the health industry for years now! I AM SO PSYCHED!
I can't tell you hard it is to stay within my calorie range and lose weight when I LOVE FOOD and when I exercise it causes me to get more hungry to replace those calories! I'm usually over my calorie range or right up to the 1550 when counting really accurately! :)
I don't know if it's my new bar that has helped suppress my appetite or if it is the new vitamin I'm taking but I cannot freaking tell you how happy I am that I don't have raging hunger cravings. THIS IS HUGE! I'll be the "skinny angel" I want to be in no time!
How did I ever live without these supplements?

    Oh, that sounds wonderful! I hope that these supplements are natural and healthy. It's crazy how many on the market are full of synthetic chemicals, yuck! Hopefully you will be able to assist us all with ideas and suggestions. emoticon

Maxed out calories, still hungry and being punished!

Sunday, August 16, 2009

I feel like a cow...I have been doing really good with my workouts lately, eating right most days...and right now I am at my max around 1506 calories and I am still hungry! I ate good, had salad, fresh fruit, lots of water, low calorie proteins, and not to mention I got my bike fixed today and biked about 8 miles! I still had energy to spare!!! I wasn't even that tired at the end...winded but not husband on the other hand was pooped! I kicked his butt! I am so fighting opening the fridge right now and just diving head first with my spoon into the tub of lowfat yogurt..and while it may be a good choice, it'll plunge me over the edge of my calories!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so angry...I know I need to eat but I can't! This is what it has come too...pushing my body to the limit, raising my metabolism and being forced to not eat just because I am at my maximum....why does it feel like I am being punished? I did good...and yet my body isn't satisfied! Going to have a diet mountain dew to get some flavor and hopefully satisfy this MAJOR hunger pang!!!!!!

    You go girl!!! this blog helped me a ton... I worked out today and I'm sooo hungry. I tried drinking water but I'm still hungry so I broke down and had a waterbase soy protein shake to get me through the day until dinner time. I started up again just a week ago and I cheated yesterday by having 3 6oz glasses of wine and one cookie. But everyday is a new day. I'm back on the horse again. emoticon

    I think on days like that having a LITTLE more isnt bad!!! I do better when I eat at my higher end of my range on days when I wokr out hard! listen to your body- especially when you have drinkin a lot of water and ate GREAT- your body says eat more- I would eat more...

the more you eat the more you burn- your body is like a furnice!! burn baby burn!!

thats my 2 cents LOL I dont even know you LOL- but thats my little opinion!! :)

good luck!

    You should eat a little more then. When you exercise more than normal, you are allowed to add a few more calories to your daily intake. You are working off too much if you have a pain... Go ahead and have something fresh and yummy in moderation. emoticon

MY DOG'S SURGERY! I love my Major!

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Well today was really exciting for me and heartbreaking at the same time. I took my beloved miniature schnauzer named Major into the vet clinic today to have cataract surgery. He is blind from his cataracts which are a result of his diabetes. Talk about an expensive dog! Between his insulin, syringes, special food, frequent blood glucose tests, vet visits...he is worth a fortune! He has definitely worn a HUGE hole in my pocket, but also worn an equally deeper hole in my heart! I love him!
I am sitting here writing this as he is just starting his surgery right now, PRAYING he'll pull through just fine and hopefully see! I have ALOT of money riding on this! I pray he'll be able to see and have his quality of life returned! I don't get to pick him up till tomorrow, but I do get to visit him during visiting hours from 6-7pm. You bet I'll be there and praying he SEES ME!
Please if you have children, or pets, please say a prayer for my dog, Major. He is one of the most spunky, full of zest type dogs I've ever seen, and he deserves this! Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers that I don't go nuts today...I suppose I'll do some deep cleaning and prep this weeks meals to get my mind off of it! THANKS!

Major's Mommy

Major and my hubby. Can you tell he is hamming it up? He is such a soft hearted sweetheart! He's Momma's little officer! That is how he got his name Major, because he reminds us of a military officer...IN CHARGE! He trots around like he owns the joint!

    Ahhh, sweet Major! I hope he benefits from the surgery, and I will say a prayer for him! Give him a hug from me! If he will be able to see, will it be imediate or will it take a few days? I love you guys. Give each other a hug for me...I know this is a hard time for you...he is your baby! Miss you! emoticon

    Awwww.....Major is so sweet - so photogenic!

Miniature schnauzers are cool - two summers ago I spent a vacation week in NC and our hosts had an awesome mini - I think of Kirby to this day with great fondness!

I send my best wishes to you, your hubby and to Major at this time and hope for the best possible outcome!

Keep sparkin'!

So here's to throwing safety out the window!

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

There is a frightening thought that crosses my mind, I I picture myself at my husbands retirement ceremony for the Air Force and I have several children most of which are grown and out of the house, and I see the Honor Guard perform their ceremony for him. I also hear the speechs and commerative lectures numerous colleagues have given him, some big shot commander talks about his special decorations and awards. They relive his career from the day he started basic training, and while I am very happy...I wonder...

What could I HAVE DONE WITH MYSELF? Could I be standing there receiving all the praise that is due me? Could I be standing there with 20 years or more experience in the military???? Could I be standing there full of fulfillment from my accomplishments?

COULD I HAVE MADE SOMETHING OF MYSELF? No, I played life safe, I never pursued a career full force, I never made it a point to go after my dreams with pin-point accuracy! And what do I have to show for it....nothing except the echo of my HUSBANDS career...the echo of a dream that never ... EVER WAS REALIZED!

For the past two years I've wanted to be in the military, but the weight has kept me out, and I had some wrong ...

forget the rules,....forget my fears of what the military might entail...forget playing it safe...I AM PLUNGING INTO THIS FULL FORCE! AND IF IT BE NOT FOR ME...I PRAY THE LORD WILL KEEP ME FROM IT! AND TAKE AWAY THIS DESIRE TO SERVE!

A Hopeful Future Air Force Trainee
