Burning it!
Monday, April 18, 2016      3 comments

I invested my meager earnings into having a lawn company, to apply weed and feed. (I really can do this myself and I have 30 and 35 year old men living with me). I caved, mostly because they broke me down with their endless calls and offers. ... Read more

There is a perfectly good, well groomed path before me and yet I venture into the undergrowth where I will struggle, fighting every little hazard placed before me. That is pretty much where I am with my weight loss right now. I know exactly wh... Read more

Took my dog for a walk. Since I had already thrown his toy for about 15 minutes figured I would just go a short walk. When I got home my car/house keys were missing. No one was home to let me in so I figured I would retrace the walk. In the... Read more

I ended my 21 day metabolism reset last night (day 10). Just missing so many things in my consumption. This a.m. I relished the cup of coffee and a metabar, a classic morning breakfast for me. Yes, I was feeling really pretty well on the rese... Read more

Did a good job with food today, day 10 0f metabolic reset. My exercise was major house cleaning. I don't REALLY consider that exercise but going up and down the basement steps repeatedly is certainly exercise. No doggie walk, it's been raining... Read more

Jalapeno
Sunday, April 03, 2016      5 comments

Wowsers, today's smooth has a jalapeno in it, the "purpose" is to improve blood flow, reduce inflammation, and burn belly fat. It is a burner for sure and I DO like spicy. Especially post night shift when the body just feels wonky (yes, that i... Read more

Tonight (night shift) on the computer I came across a Spark article, "100 Reason You Should Work Out Today". I printed it cause I need to keep this in front of me everyday. A few favorites: Because: +you need a reason to wear those work... Read more

Today, I jumped on the scale knowing full well that I had gained. March was a month of debauchery, lots of wine, lots of foods in excess. And yes, even last night there was wine and pizza. My ring is tight this a.m. with water retention. 5.1... Read more
