10 Steps to a NEW YOU!

Whew, sorry for being MIA the past couple of weeks – between moving and vacationing with my fiancé, I have been a busy lady! I have to start by saying.. It’s a beautiful thing when you first see the scale drop when you have hypothyroid or adrenal issues. You know it can be a roller coaster of emotions and even a roller coaster of gaining/losing weight.. but when you lose a pound, keep it off and then lose another 3 — THATS a beautiful thing! I am not going to sugar coat it, losing weight is not always the easiest and keeping it off can be a bit difficult — but once you get a system, do your research and really understand what your body is doing and what your body is telling you — thats when it becomes easier and a way of life. I dont workout and eat healthy to be “skinny” — I do it bc I want to feel great and my doctor will bitch at me otherwise! So I might as well do my part. Your mentality is KEY! You have a disease. You have a hard time losing weight. You feel tired. Your moody. Your slow. You might have low or no sex drive. You don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. I get it.. I understand. Throw yourself a pity party for 5 minutes and then get your ass up and do something about it! Its not going to change itself. DECIDE. Decide right now you’re not going to let this consume you. Regardless if you have been diagnosed or you just have the symptoms — YOU are capable of overcoming the setbacks. It’s Sunday – your planning day. The day to reevaluate how you are going to run your week and NOT let the week run you! If you haven’t already calculate how many calories a day you should be consuming! If you are eating too little, you are slowing your metabolism even more than what it is. You body thinks its starving so it will store body fat! I like using www.FreeDieting.com and then use the calculator to figure out your daily caloric intake. You should get 3 numbers, never use the last number, its almost always too little and you should never be eating less than 1200 cals a day anyway. Find a method of tracking your food. I like www.MyFitnessPal.com – its free and has a database of most foods and their nutrient value stored. Even restaurant foods. You will be surprised what you see! There is an app for your phone as well. I don’t suggest using the calorie calculator they provide, only bc it is not super accurate. And Remember – “if you bite, you write it” — anything you consume, even a bite, goes into the journal. Make a grocery list. I...

Lost 5.4 Pounds in 3 days!!!!!

Posted by on Oct 9, 2010 in Krystal

Yes – that is the result of my Shakeology 3-day Cleanse!!! WOW!!! So, on day 1 (Wednesday) I had so much energy, I taught my TurboKick classes and didnt even notice I was on a cleanse the first day! I wasnt hurrying thru my salad that evening or anything – it was like any other day! I drank my shakes, drank tons of water, drank my green tea and had my salad with 4oz of tilapia for dinner! Day 2 (Thursday) I woke up a little hungry, but just like every morning I made my Shakeology – I did gulp it down! I also had my green tea for breakfast and lunch! By the time dinner came around I was feeling the hunger pains and had a slight headache..but I kept busy that day by SHOPPING and playing outside with my kids! But when my girls had their lunch – ahhhh – it was torture! I had to eat a piece of fruit with my Shakeology! So when I did eat my salad with chicken for dinner – I was more than ready for it! Day 3 (Friday) – Yesterday basically felt like the first day!!! I had tons of energy and felt like I could keep going! I kept myself busy all day and I really think that helps because I was not able to think about if I was hungry and what I was hungry for… I did notice my stomach growling during lunch time…and craving more than just a Shakeology – but after I made my daughters their lunch and drank my shake, I went right back to being busy! Last night I had the BEST salad with grilled chicken…I kept drinking tons of water and that helped a lot, but honestly it wasnt as difficult as I thought it was going to be on the last day! Today I put on my skinny jeans and wore them with confidence!!! I didnt feel like I had extra bloating or “muffin tops” – I felt great! This morning I made my Shakeology, but this time I added a 1/2 package of Maple and Brown Sugar instant oatmeal, 2 tablespoons of SF/FF Cheesecake Pudding mix, 1 cup of water, 1 cup of Almond Milk, 1 tsp of peanut butter – ice and blended!!! SOOOOOOOOO Good! If you are interested in doing the Shakeology 3-Day Cleanse – here is the info & directions: The Shakeology 3-day cleanse is an innovative way to use Shakeology as a cleanse. It’s very simple to follow. To start with it is like no other cleanse out there today. One of the things that makes it so different from other “cleanses”, is in fact that the Shakeology 3 Day Cleanse is a “performance” cleanse – its like a toothbrush for your insides!! This is because it is designed to be done along with a workout/fitness program. The 3 day cleanse is...
