Adding new things to my health regimen.

Well, as far as my exercising, I have slacked up, but have been consistant on my walking and have been doing it everyday. I have been working on keepin my calories at 1500 or slightly lower. Last week I weighed in at 158 now I am 151. I am adding oil pulling to my regimen. This is supposed to help whiten teeth and detoxify the body. I am really bad with consistancy, but I really want to try this. People say they have really good results such as keener taste and more energy. Also, a decrease in appetite has been reported. I am also going to restart my regimen on digesting and cooking with coconut oil. This is said to boost metabolism by 'heating up' the body. I have also just discover oil washing. Now I would never think washing the face with oil would improve the skin, but I am willing to give it a try...

1st Workout Day

Ok, so today was the beginning or my workouts. I decided to start with Jillian's 30 day shred...and I must say that I feel physically sick...I have a headache, and I still have my walking to do. I started at level one and its really intense for me. I don't know if you are supposed to do this everyday, but I am going to do every other day for now. So, I'm off to doing my walk, about two miles, and then I have to work on my squat and crunch challenges...WISH ME LUCK!!!

starting over....AGAIN!!!!!

I am sooooooooo tired of starting over and over and over
But I am determined to finish my goal this time. Earlier this year i enrolled in a fitness bootcamp for 2 months. I did lose inches, but I couldn't get my eating right. Now I am determined to lose the weight and stay in shape...for good. It's not gonna get any easier, so I might as well conquer this demon now! I will begin exercising today.. I will walk around the block at least twice. Tomorrow I am going to be working on strength exercises that I learned from bootcamp every other day, and doing Jillian Michaels 3o day shred every other day...I really hope I can stay motivated this time! When my kids get home, I will have my son post before pics....ugh!

Ok I did it. I have officially started. I went around the block, about a mile. I only did 1 trip around, because I had my kids with me. But I think I did ok, considering I haven't exercised since April. I alternated jogging and walking. Here are a few things I have to work on

1. cutting down on my soda intake
2. drinking more water..124oz(half of body weight in oz)
3. drinking natural juices ( 100%)
4. cutting calorie intake to 1500 ( progress will be posted at comes the scary part
here are my recent pics 248lbs my current measurements are:
thighs(at fattest area) 33 in
hips 51.5
wa ist 43 in
a comic strip!

Does time really heal all wounds?

I don't think so...
The things that happen to us are the things that help to shape who we are, our personality. But what happens when those things affect you in a negative way? What happens when that negativity brings on some unpleasent traits in a person..
Of course we will never be perfect. But...
I know hate is a strong word, but what if a person has caused you sooooooo much pain, that it affects you everyday, to the point where it hurts you so bad that you are crying everyday? No, people, it's not a man. I want to tell this person how I feel, but I don't want it to come out wrong. I love them to death, and don't want to make matters worse than they already are. What do I do? Do I confront them? Or do I just hold it in, like I have done for soooo many years?? Do I tell them that I feel betrayed, hurt, and unloved? Or do I just keep closing the door and crying myself to sleep everyday?

Bantu knot outs

Ok, I know I am late, but I just discovered bantu knots and I absolutely love them!!! The curls come out so cute and springy. I do mine on dry hair...I moisturize and then put them in the knots. The cool think about these is that u can get a nice girl after about 20 minutes!!! So they are good as a late minute hair style.
