Hi there!

Well, this morning I woke up very tired... I went to bed way too late and woke up early. Its going to be more difficult to exercise today, but that's okay. I've had my SW and protein drink & vitamins prior to hitting my gym. I already did my cardio, it wasn't as easy as usual. I actually need a lot of sleep, especially when I have a lot going on in my life - like now. I've been really busy lately with my construction company, ZXoom business & horse training - not to mention being a attentive mother & wife. But it's all so good. Life is exciting and full of wonderful experiences. I'll get through today with a positive mindset, good wholesome food and a happy attitude.

My cute husband has been rebuilding his engine in his twin turbo Supra. I love to walk out to his garage and watch him at work. He has one fast car, he does a 1/4 mile in 11 seconds, and that was with his old engine! His new one will be even more powerful. He's really gifted, he's done all the work on it himself! He's been in magazines and people from all over the world contact him for his expertise. He has a professional car lift in his garage, it's pretty cool. I have to say that I'm so grateful spring has finally arrived for good. It's fun to see all the sports cars, convertibles & motorcycles on the road. There's nothing more enjoyable than a bright sunny day. I love this time of year so, so much!

I've already finished my cardio this morning, I did 10 miles. My body's still weak - my chest and head hurt again from lack of sleep - ugh! It was more difficult, but that's okay, I did it! Yeah! And once I get my kids off to school I'll continue my workout by doing lower body weight training. My legs get bulky really easy so I have to do light weights and high reps. Building muscle quickly runs in my family. My brothers are big solid guys naturally, they're very blessed. I'm grateful I love to exercise, but I really do have to be careful not to over train. I like long, lean muscles on women - not big and bulky. In addition to building muscle fast my family also gains weight easily. That's why I really have to eat clean to keep a lean physique. I'm still not yet where I want to be, but I've set my goals and I'm focusing on them daily. I will achieve them very soon, it's a fun journey and I'm learning so much along the way.

I'm going to eat very clean today - just wait and see! I started my day off with my SW, vitamins, protein drink and happy thoughts. It's going to be a wonderful day for sure!

I'll touch base later this evening to report my diet. Have a good one! ;P


Today's Diet:

I did pretty well today, I still could have done better however, but that's okay, tomorrow's a new day - a new beginning.

7:00 am SW (32 oz), vitamins, protein drink (with water), 32 oz of water

I always need more calories when I'm feeling fatigued. Hopefully I'll feel better in the morning.

I have to say that today was such a great day! The weather was perfect, I visited with my friends and family, and made wonderful new clients. Sigh... life really is so good!

I'll chat with you tomorrow, have a good night.

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY

THE ART OF VISUALIZING YOUR DREAM BODY
"Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall become. Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be; your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil."~James Allen
It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
