My Journey

My Life, one day at a time!
I get to go SHOPPING today!!

I get to go SHOPPING today!!

When you get up REALLY EARLY in the morning, you can get a ship load of stuff done.  Hubs had to get up early today, so I have a great start on my day, which is good, because today is the day I go and buy Christmas Gifts for foster children.  I have done this for several years now, and I LOVE doing this.  It really tears at your heartstrings.  So now I can spend extra time doing this today.

I had been neglecting to do this, but, today, I am thankful that I am able to go do this shopping for these foster children.  I am happy to be able to share with them.   I am also Thankful that my body has the ability to get up every day and go out for my jalk, and take in the cold fresh air!  It does a body good!  Tell me what you are thankful for!!

Below is my Macros for yesterday, Image-1.jpg

I did get 100 Grams of Protein, but it was only 20% of my total macros.  It appears I had a lot of carbs yesterday.

I burned 1820 Calories yesterday and I consumed 1450 calories.  I think the extra calories are coming in because the hubs and I have been going for mid afternoon walks, and I feel like that kind of kicks everything up a little.

My workout today was:

Single Leg Ext  3 sets of 6 reps each @ 40 lbs

Dead Lift 3 sets of 6 reps each @ 35 lbs

T- Bar Row 3 sets of 6 reps each @ 110 lbs

Incline Bar Bell Press 3 sets of 6 reps each @ 20 lbs

Dumb Bell Shrugs 3 sets of 6 reps each @ 35 lbs

Lat Pull Down 3 sets of 6 reps each @ 70 lbs

Over Head Rope Tri 3 sets of 6 reps each @ 35 lbs

Dumb Bell Curl 3 sets of 6 reps each @ 12 lbs

Dips 3 sets of 6 reps each @ 40 lbs

Calf Raises   3 sets of 6 reps each @ 20 lbs

Lots of Abs

Again I rested between sets instead of doing my normal Jumping Jacks and Running in Place.  I am doing this to test the overall, all day caloric burn.  I had read that it is more important if you are trying to gain strength to rest between each set, vs keeping active.  So far, I have not noticed a big difference through out the day.  Do you rest between sets or do you keep active?

I am truly a product junkie.  I know this and admit this, but I like to try new things.  I don’t know if you have heard of Hello Ned.  This is a company that specializes in Hemp Infused products.  They had a Black Friday Sale, of course they did, who didn’t.  I had been wanting to try this and I thought this would be the perfect time.  I only got two items, I wanted to try it before I bought TOO much.  This came today and it came in the cutest little boxIMG_0142.jpg and I got the IMG_0143.jpgHemp Infused Lip Balm, in Peppermint Flavor,  (how cute is that little bag) and the Hemp Infused Body Butter.  I have not tried the lip balm, but I did try just a little of the body butter on my arms.  I thought this would be “greasy”, but it goes on nice and smooth and leaves your skin really soft.  I will try this for several days, and then let you know how I really like it.  Have any of you tried this yet?  If I do like it, I am going to contact them and see if I can get a discount code for you readers.  Let me know if you have tried it, or might be interested in trying it.

I hadn’t said anything about my horoscope recently, but it caught my eye today as I read it:

Networking applies to many more areas of your life than your profession. In romance, sports, leisure and even in your extended family, you’ll be much more fulfilled and stimulated if you’re connected to more people. It’s up to you to make the connections you need, though — so reach out and don’t be shy. People are much more receptive to your overtures than you realize. You’ll feel surprised and encouraged by the associations you’re starting to develop.

This is so true.  It seems like the more I keep in contact with family, friends and work associates, the better the reception is, the more work I get done because I have talked with people or contacted them and I am not thinking, “Oh, I really need to do this” and also, business is better.  I am especially realizing this in working with Beauty Counter.  I have to constantly keep in touch with people, other consultants, customers, the advisors, everything.  Which brings me to this.  I am doing a Giveaway of Beauty Counter Samples and products.  All you need to do is send me an e-mail telling me what your favorite Beauty Counter product is, or if you have not tried them yet, what you would like to try.  On Monday, December 3, I will pick 3 winners and send out the giveaways.  Be sure to check out my Beauty Counter Website

to see all of the CLEAN and SAFE products.  They even have product for men and children!!  And there are so many great items that will work perfect as stocking stuffers, or gifts for that hard to buy for friend.

Well guys, I am heading out to buy the Foster Kid Gifts.  I will take pictures of this and put them on this blog post when I get back, so you can see how much fun this is.  Ok, be right back!
Ok, I am back, that didn’t take too long.  I picked out a boy and a girl, ages 4 and 6, and I bought everything on both of their lists, along with a little extra, and this is what I had:
This is so much fun and everyone should do this at least once.  It just makes you feel good.
But now, I need to get back to work.  If you guys would buy more Beauty Counter, Oganifi, Four Athletics, and Vital Choice, I could do more on this blog, and maybe even get my podcast up and running.  Help support this BLOG!!!!Buy More, if you need help with the Discount Codes or websites, leave me a comment below
