    Thank you for these laughs today. I have really enjoyed them. I have not tried any of these, but like the Doritos, I have given up Potato Chips and haven't had any since July of last year.

Don't stay where you are.

Do something every single day -- in fact, do lots of things every day, to move toward your goals.



Usually, the answer to that questions is -- ME! Don't let "you" stop yourself from reaching your goals. Just do the work!!



Yes, the work will be difficult at times, but the more you do it, the easier it gets & the better you get.

Here's a tip from Coach Nicole (& a funny):

Feed your body the best possible fuel.

Wednesday, March 06, 2013



I contemplated for a long time about blogging on this & I decided that I should. If I can help one person learn from my mistake, it will have been worth it.

I had been eating very healthy foods for several months (lots of fruits & veggies, lean proteins, etc.). Then one day about a month ago I was having a very rough day at work & there was junk food everywhere from an office party. I had a weak moment & went hog wild. It wasn't pretty & I was having a pity party about the scale not moving.

NOT a good idea at all. My body totally revolted. I felt horrible!!! I was tired, lethargic, my muscles felt weak, I felt bloated & uncomfortable. My brain was fuzzy & I couldn't concentrate. I just wanted to go to sleep. I did not make it to the gym that night. It actually took a couple of days for all the junk to get out of my system & for me to start feeling "normal" again (anyone who knows me knows I'm not really normal). emoticon

Anyway, my lessons learned: If I ate that junk for only one day & felt so horrible, imagine what I was doing to my body by eating it every day before I started my healthy eating plan. No wonder I felt horrible all the time. I also realized that the more junk I ate that day, the more I wanted AND I was still not satisfied! I was still hungry!!!

Back on my healthy eating plan, with all the fruits & veggies & healthy lean proteins, I am satisfied & my body is happy & I have plenty of energy to make it through my long days & still make it to the gym most evenings after work.

So, eat this:



and not this:



To feel like this:



Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon

    Thanks for this post. It reminded me of how medical professionals tell you it takes about three days to get anesthesia out of your system after surgery - sounds the same for the junk food, which is sort of a form of toxic anesthesia. I know I have had similar results as you describe when I am not eating the right foods to fuel my body.

    Honestly, the healthy selection is so much prettier and appealing than the starchy sweets. The colors cannot be compared!

    Oh I LOVE the graphics today, and can sympathize with your story of sickening indulgence, too. I had been off sweets for Lent and on Sunday past, (not considered a day in Lent and not counted in the 40 Days), ) I too indulged- just before bedtime- on an over-large piece of apple crisp with too much frozen vanilla yogurt! I woke up on Monday morning so nauseated and fuzzy-headed there was no mistaking what sugar did to me! Amen, sister! Amen!

Complaining won't burn calories.

Tuesday, March 05, 2013



But if it did, we'd all be at goal, right? emoticon

How about this one for a chuckle?



Don't we all wish that? One thing I've realized is that once you get into a regular exercise routine, you just crave it, like you crave water when you're thirsty. Give it a try & I think you'll learn to love exercise, too.

In fact:

Today, & every day, let's be extraordinary!!

Passion . . .

Monday, March 04, 2013



I have noticed that when I'm with my buddies at the gym & the music is great, I tend to work out a little harder. I have also noticed that when the gym is slow & there are very few people there, I don't work out as hard. Do I have passion for my journey? Of course I do. Sometimes, I'm just plain tired after working all day. But I need to keep an eye on this so that I don't get lazy in the gym.

Today, keep plugging along & be mindful of your choices when no one is looking. Especially with regards to food. emoticon Here are some posters to think about as you start your day.









Blessings to you!! emoticon emoticon
