Good luck and spring..cleansing?

Hello ladies and gents!

I must say I’m pretty excited because I have been having some pretty good luck lately with school,work and the like. My first semester of hell graduate school is almost over! Just in time for summer! And I found out I will be getting a promotion soon at work! Also, as I mentioned before I am now an Advocare distributor! This makes me super excited. I went to my first advocare meet up last week and the success stories people shared blew my mind! This product really has helped people who never thought they could be active or healthy and I’m super excited to represent this company.
As I also shared before I will be doing the herbal cleanse and sharing my results.
Got it in today and starting tomorrow!

That is hard to look at but I must show you so you know this works. Now listen here, from top left clockwise, that is day one,three, and nine of this product! Only 9 DAYS!! Insane results. Can’t wait to help others get the same results.
Moving on, as far as other good luck goes yesterday I stopped in to GNC only to get some of my trusty quest bars and came out will all kinds of free goodies!

Injuries and downfalls

Sooo I know I said I was going to stay updated on here and stay accountable…but their has been a slight mishap! I went on a cruise to Belize, Honduras, and Cozumel and had a blast! The negative is I also happened to fall and bust my tail bone HARD!! Unfortunately this means I have not been able to work out AT ALL! It really has been rough but I know I need to take it easy on my body. I have been trying to eat extra clean and less calories knowing that I’m now not burning those calories off but a few binges cheats have happened and I’m ok with it. I am human after all. I just know that I need to practice better self control and when I can work out again I will be ready to go! And I can’t wait because I feel like a total bum just sitting here. Never thought I would like working out so much I’d miss it!

Also, if you want to see my pics from the cruise follow me on Instagram! @sdr526

Off the bandwagon

So I has now been a little over two months since I have posted on here…and I must say that is awful!!!

It is bad that I haven’t made this more of a priority and since I haven’t written in a while I have not had a reason to hold myself accountable and have therefor fell off the healthy bandwagon. Now of course, any one can make excuses. Like “it was the holidays” or “I haven’t had enough time or money”. However, none of those are acceptable excuses because if you want it you work for it! I have definitely packed on a few holiday pounds and I can see and feel the difference. Not to say you should be miserable and sit and eat salads all the time during the holidays..everyone should enjoy treats in small portions. I have just kind of done what has been convenient for me or done half ass work outs or didn’t at all when I know I could have. It is a new year though and though you should start a healthy track at any time of the year now is a good time for me to get myself together and get back in line! Hopefully posting regularly on here will help me do that.

Now for a few inspiring pics :

What I Ate Wednesday

Well well, even though I didn’t think I would have time to post again this week I manages! Even though in reality it’s because I am the Queen of procrastinating and it’s what I do best so here I am just killing time I should be spending studying. whoops.

Anyways, I actually remembered to take a picture of pretty much everything I ate! Go me! Before I show the pics let me tell you about this diet I’m on this week..it’s called I have 5 bucks til pay day. Haha postgrad life at its best.

The items I had in order counter clockwise:
1) a chocolate chip quest bar ( which of course I inhaled post work out and forgot to snap a picture of) I was still hungry after that so I ate a piece of ostrich jerky I got this past weekend too!
2) Granny Smith apple and an ounce of roasted planters nuts
3) I threw a bunch of veggies and salsa and shredded chicken together and ate it with some black bean chips..pretty yum if I say so myself!
4) dessert-the best part of the day which was 6 oz chobani plain yogurt with 1/4 cup Nature valley protein granola, 2 tbsp. cinnamon peanut butter, 1 tbsp no sugar added strawberry jelly and half a chocolate brownie quest bar. So filling but I wanted more!

Oh yeah and all this fit my macros perfectly. Whoop whoop.

As far as exercise today was an active rest day and I just ran for 5k at an easy pace. Just glad I can run again pain free!

Oh yeah, and here’s a picture I took as I was cooking my dinner that I found hilarious.

You had ONE job bro. Zucchini is not yellow squash in case you hadn’t noticed. Epic fail.

Ok, now off to study. maybe for sure possibly

Go your own way

Hey guys! Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend. I myself had a blast hanging out at my hopefully soon to be future home! The weather down here has been nothing short of rainy and gloomy all summer but this weekend Mother Nature got it together.

I think I will get used to that view just fine. : )
I am getting nervous because my test is coming up soon for graduate school and I hope i do well! Prayers and good vibes sent my way are much appreciated.

On the side of fitness I am still a little bummed out. I have been busy but I’m still trying to get in as much as I can without over doing it. When I first started this blog I was kind of stressing out if I didn’t work out enough or “eat clean” and I would feel guilty if I verged from the healthy path but lately I’ve been reading and seeing great results from following my macronutrients and making sure I hit them every day. I don’t want to explain it all myself so you can find the information here at IIFYM and there are some great informative videos on you tube by Layne Norton or just type in macronutrients. It allows me to really eat more of “bad” foods as long as I get my healthy proteins and fats in for the day. Also, as far as working out switching up my diet has actually helped me get stronger in the gym! I feel like I have more energy and am lifting heavier. I am also just trying to workout just to stay healthy and not to hit a certain number on the scale. Just work out for me. Now this blog is getting a little long so I won’t continue to bore you!
