Some like it HOT

Monday, August 22, 2011

I have had a few set backs lately so ... I checked back into what was working

in the past and decided to add in a little extra as well. OK number

ONE : HOT

I decided to take the entire dose of Cayenne that is recomended to speed

up your matabolism and help curb your appetite. I so wish I had the pills

because to stir a teasspoon of cayenne powder with a 1/4 cup of water

and down it ...Well its gross . I do feel better about a hour since the

cayenne and then I had some eggs and toast to chase it. We shall see

right?

TWO: I watch DR. OZ a ton and he had 3 girls give their secrets to losing

100 to 235 pounds recently... Cayenne was one of the things , a pizza crust

make of lowfat cheese smashed up with frozen califlower was another

and the one I decided to try again was (2) wearing and carrying weights

when I walk. I will be wearing 34 pounds worth to be exact ...a little less

then I have taken off so far.. Again we shall see how this helps ,

she said it was simple the extra weight helps your workouts to make

you sweat more (she said she sweat like a man) and burn more fat in less

time... good for me because I am not into the 1 to 2 hour workouts like

I used to be.

Day 329 of my NEW PLAN and all is going great? Yes .

    good for you to look at things again and especially go back to some things that were working for you. So good that you are still working on changing for life. pizza dough out of cauliflower and lowfat cheese...really...hun. I will have to look for this as I love pizza.
Keep on keeping on...you can do this..be healthy and set a good example for that beautiful family of yours.
