Made it to the Gym!!


Hi all!
TGIF!! and I got to the gym today.

After working out at home all week, except for Tuesday. I made it to
the gym! I needed it, an escape from my messy house!

Here is what I am doing:
Today is my first day of "Buffing", I am planning on having a
photoshoot in 2weeks...so that is my motivation. The goal for me is
to lose a couple real pounds and then do a photo prep week that will
dehydrate me a bit down 3-4 more pounds. I will try and explain the
process a bit as I go along.

My eating so far:
8 am-
1 cup cooked oatmeal with 1/4 c. vanilla soy milk and 1 tsp brown
sugar. Also 1 choc scoop of protien in h20 and my vitamins:
b-6,b-12,magnesium, cal, apple cider vinegar pill, ginko, st. john's
wart, (p.s. I get sick from multivitamins so I usually take children's
chewables, but I am out)lubriflex and water
3 - 6oz c. coffee with sugar(bad I know but I am not going to have
equal and I need to buy better stevia) and powdered ff creamer
1 green drink while working out and 1 bottle of water
post workout NO2
12:30
Egg burrito...3 whole eggs on ww tortilla, a little butter and tabasco
sauce and salsa, yummy
Supps:
Lubriflex, b-6, mag, cal, zinc, Flax oil, ginko, st. john's wart
water

so far so good on that! I have been bad!! about not eating during the
day much, just a ton at night over the last few days...so I feel
stuffed right now! Also, my coffee intake needs to be cut a
little...I will work on that starting monday, wink, wink.
The hard part for me comes in the evening...I always over eat at
night! I will be strong and diligent!

My workout:
warm up on r-bike 5 min

What makes a woman Special?

What makes a woman Special?

Women are special creatures- we are different than men and that difference must be taken into consideration in our training and nutritional programs.

What is it that makes women special?

  1. The obvious physical characteristics
  2. Our monthly hormonal cycles

At different times over the past couple years, I noticed myself having extreme mood changes, symptoms of depression, complete physical exhaustion and total lack of motivation.After realizing that these symptoms came at the same time each month, I finally connected my symptoms to PMS.My PMS was negatively impacting every aspect of my life for about 2 weeks of every month!As I researched the subject I found that many women, as they have children and enter into their 30’s, have more PMS symptoms.Up to 85% of women suffer some of the 150 symptoms called PMS.

What caused my PMS? I am very healthy and fit, so why was I suffering so badly? My knowledge of nutrition led me to a possible nutrient deficiency.I started simple supplementation of key “hormonal support” nutrients including:B-6, magnesium, calcium, vitamin E and B-12.

Three months into my faithful supplementation I had my first symptom free cycle!!

Every female needs to realize the important role that vitamins and minerals play in supporting our natural hormonal cycle. Regardless of weather or not you suffer negatively from PMS, the female hormonal cycle affects every woman.As the mother of 3 young girls, I believe that from birth there is a “time of the month” for every female.

If you do suffer PMS, there is hope…before turning to an antidepressant or taking the pill for relief, please try the following supplements:

  • Vitamin B6*: 100mg per day
  • Vitamin E: 400-600 IU per day
  • Calcium: 1,500 mg per day
  • Magnesium: 800 mg per day
  • Fatty Acids( like fish oil or flax seed oil): 2-4 gms per day

Or you can benefit by taking one of the my great Hormonal Timing Pill supplements

Remember YOU are in control of your body, life and legacy.

Get BUFF!

Joyce Meyer

Over the past six years I have been a student of the great teachings of Joyce Meyer. She is so down to earth and real, I feel that God knew what he was doing when he placed her over the great ministry she has today.

I wanted to share some great promises from God that she prompted me to confess on a regular basis:

“I live the abundant life that Jesus died to give me…” John 10:10
” I am blessed to the point that my cup runs over…” Psalm 23:5
“I am the head and not the tail…” Deuteronomy 28:13

And my personal favorite-

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!” Philippians 4:13

Please visit her website for more great teachings www.joycemeyer.org

God Bless, Michelle

I was Attacked!


EEEK! I was attacked and had to use my mace last evening on my run. I was attacked by a dog. Thank God it was just a dog and not a man. BUT-
Always remember saftey first when you are outside walking, biking, running, etc.
Always carry mace. It is light and easy to cary during your outdoor activity and could save your life!

Stay Safe,

Michelle
