My Journey

My Life, one day at a time!
Happy Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year!

What a morning, I think this is the first I actually stopped, sat and took a deep breath!  Crazy busy morning, and I did not sleep well at all last night so I really have had to push myself.

Ok, Tamie, you had your little whine session so get over yourself, everybody is busy, right?  RIGHT!

First, my heart health motivation for today!1princesssassypants&co4 And listen to the whispers of your heart and do what they say!

We did get our Regular walk in this morning.  It was VERY comfortable out, ALMOST warm.  I hope it stays like this for awhile.  And a quick coffee stop, but since we both had places to be, we needed to make it quick!

My Macros, Nutrients and Caloric Intake and Burn for yesterday are as per below:


I did a little better on the carbs, actually, I did a little better overall!  I still need a few less carbs and a little more protein.  I keep working on it and eventually, I will get there!  I also noticed a little too high on the sodium!

My total caloric intake yesterday was 1388 calories.  My burn was as per below:


I did pretty good on the calorie burn as well as the steps yesterday.  Just keep at it!  Right!

I did not have the time to work out after our walk, but I did manage to go down before lunch for a QUICK lift.  The below is what I did today:

I did 2 sets of each, the first set was 6 reps and the second set was 7 reps:

Single Leg Press    40 lbs for the first set and 55 lbs for the second set

Dumb Bell Dead Lift   35 lbs for each

T-Bar Row  100 lbs for the first set and 110 lbs for the second set

Incline Dumb Bell Press   15 lbs for each

Dumb Bell Shrugs   35 lbs for each

Lat Pull Down  70 lbs for each

Behind the Neck Pull down  40 lbs for the first set and 50 lbs for the second set

Dumb Bell Curl  12 lbs for each set

Dips    30 lbs assist

Lots of Obliques, Run in place, Jumping Jack and Sprints up and Down the hall.  It ended up to be a pretty good QIUCK workout.  Now, I have LOTS of work to get down.

Yesterday I did more food prep than I have done in a LONG time.  We were having salads/tacos for dinner, and I needed to cut food up for that, so I just kept going.IMG_0351  I chopped chicken, cabbage, lettuce, all kinds of vegetables, (as you can see) onions, peppers and avocado.  When I went to make lunch today, all I had to do was throw a bunch of food in a bowl!  Worked great.

I even ground coffee for the next couple of days yesterday.IMG_0352  I must of had a burst of energy when I did this.  But now I have this all done for a couple of days.

I know that I have talked about these almonds recently, but I have to talk about them again because they are just too good. IMG_0353    These almonds are great tasting, and, BONUS, good for you!

I got our Legendary Foods Peanut Butter yesterday.  I did learn a very valuable lesson.  When I place another order, I need to get the individual serving sizes.  This peanut butterIMG_0354

is just so good, you literally want to take a spoon and eat it out of the jar.  It was the hubs that wanted me to order this, and his opinion was the same as mine.  This is REALLY GOOD Peanut Butter, and it is better for you than most nut butters.

“Legendary Foods offers no sugar added nut butters that contain ingredients only found in nature. These nut butter superfoods are packed full of nutrients, healthy fats, and an excellent source of protein. Our flavored nut butters contain no artificial flavors and are low in carbs. Legendary Food’s no sugar added nut butters are great for paleo diets, low carb diets, and an overall healthy lifestyle.
Not only do our nut butters contain no sugar, but they taste so good, you’ll think they’re bad for you. Enjoy the taste of freshly baked homemade pecan pie without the guilt. Indulge in our Pecan Pie Raw Almond Butter and curb your intense cravings. If chocolate is your weakness, our Peanut Butter Cup Nut Butter is made with all natural peanut butter and real cocoa for the perfect snack that you can proudly eat straight out of the jar. Or, try our Blueberry Cinnamon Bun Cashew Butter, flavored with cinnamon and coconut, and packed with protein.

Legendary Foods no sugar added nut butters were created to provide you with a snack that is good for human health and tastes like junk food.”

I am working with them now to see if I can become an affiliate with them.  If I do get approved, I will share the discount code with you so you all can order your own.  If you have had these before, let me know what you think.

Guess what, it is that time again, since I was out this morning for a couple of hours, I am behind.  I need to get a few more things done and caught up, so I can get on with the rest of my day.  So, all you doodle bugs, remember to leave me a comment below and tell me what you think, good or bad, either way!

And remember to

Stay Hydrated!  As it gets a little warmer every day, it is easier to drink more everyday.

Be Happy, keep that BIG SMILE on your face!  It does a body good.

Be Active,  when you Apple Watch says stand, get up and do 10 jumping jacks.

And remember to come back tomorrow for more!

Until tomorrow
