Sunday Funday, but where is the Sun???

A bit over cast here in NJ....stinks because Ryan and I did all of our Sunday chores on Saturday with hopes to go to his sister's beach house today...BLAH...I think we are still going to go...but it probably won't be as much fun with out the beach and sun! Oh well!

24 day challenge is going good...except I think I noticed something about me (that I can't believe took this long to figure out...) but...I think I have a serious Dairy issue...without giving you TMI...I don't really get stomach cramps or pains...but I think I do feel puffy and bloated alot after I have it...AND everyone around me (including me) need to invest in a pair of nose plugs...if you get what I'm sayin!!!

So....I'm going to do an experiment...NO DAIRY for today...and maybe even the next 2 or 3 days to see if my "problems" go away. This is going to be hard...no eggs, cheese, yogurt, milk, whey protein (which is 95% of my protein powder stash....thank God for those Tight Curves SOY protein packets I still have!) I don't mean hard as in I can't live without them (ok I love dairy) BUT I'm really going to have to THINK before I put something in my mouth to make sure it's not a dairy product or made with dairy.

I hope after the next few days I get my answer...it is the only think that seems to make sense to me...and actually...I think my mom told me when I was a baby she had to give me soy formula because I couldn't take the milk based ones...I guess I should give her a call too...I just figured 28 years later I would have grown out of that (unless the problem went away and came back?!?)

Anyway...............Spent LOTS of money yesterday on food shopping and got tons of great healthy foods...so now I just have to figure out this week's menu...should be fun!

Goal for this week:
Write 2-3 blog posts to get myself back into it...I do enjoy it...just have to MAKE the time!

Have a great Sunday! Until next time!


After a 3 month break I'm back!

Hello followers! It's been an eventful 3 months (some ups and some downs) but I'm back and ready to blog again!

It's been over a year since I've trained and prepped for a show...(not that I didn't try to start a prep 3 or 4 times in the last year!!!) and I miss it, but right now I have different responsibilities to take care of that require alot of time and attention.

I haven't been in a gym in over a month...but I have been training kickboxing and jiujitsu with Ryan 2-3 times per week. We also just bought bikes and have been riding them and also kayaking too. I miss weight training alot...I feel so soft!!!

I have been enjoying my summer eating and drinking like a "normal" person...but today I began a "24 day challenge" with my new company, Advocare. (It's not well known in NJ but I know it is pretty popular in Florida and Texas.)

Day One I weighed in at 131. After my 10 day herbal cleanse and the full 24 day challenge I hope to be down 5lbs. Let's see! Today was successful! Be sure to check my YouTube channel for video updates during the challenge...

Off to bed...until next time!!!
