Weight Loss Update

13 03 2009

I am down 4 pounds !!!!!!!!

I took a health screening and my sugar is 77 (good) and my blood pressure is 117/77 (i think those were the numbers) but if not oh well…. the point is that I am healthy and on my way to a healthier lifestyle. 

I also met with personal trainer Secil Brooks of Results Gym Downtown and he assessed my body type and created a workout that is NOT time consuming and will best benefit me. 

10 minute warmout

Legs

Back 

Arm

Core

and 45 minutes of cardio

 

* Workout tip: Do you strength training before your cardio and it will help your cardio become more productive. 

* Nutrition Tip: DRINK LOTS OF WATER… if you absolutely need to have flavor try O-water… it is 0 calories with 0 sugar… hell 0 everything. It has many flavors, electrolytes, and a light after taste to help ween you to more water. 

Also, eat the fruit instead of the drinking fruit juice. Empty calories and a lot of sugar. Just eat the fruit !!!!!!!

 

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE ELSE IN THEIR WEIGHT LOSS ENDEAVORS….

Working Out Tips

9 03 2009

Everyone looks for the easy way  to losing weight….well there isn’t one. 

I have the best tip to starting your new healthy lifestyle. 

JUST DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Don’t wait to create as starting point. Put the fork down and just say I’m tired of this whenever you are ready. If you start before you are ready, you won’t commit.  How do you know you are ready? You will look at yourself and say that I am tired of feeling like this. I am a beautiful person and I want to live to see myself get married, have children, see my grandchildren, etc. This isn’t about anybody else. This is strictly about you. Everybody else can kick rocks. I don’t care how I look anymore, I know I am beautiful on the inside and out but I am not healthy. This is about me living my life as the best person that I can possibly be. Looking great just comes with the territory! 

HAPPY HEALTHY LIVES TO YOU ALL!

Need to talk about it or just release your thoughts… COMMENT AND I’ll respond to everything. I’m no guru, I’m just a real person going through the same things you are.

So the internet takeover might have to quit…

16 02 2009

Since some people don’t know the difference between business and pleasure, I am going to delete some of the pages. For those who tried to “holla” at ya girl, I apologize but I am not feeling it. I can promote my book via PN Headquarters [here] and other venues but I will not subject myself to the normal “hey sexy ma, Holla at me” …No thanks!
