My Journey

My Life, one day at a time!
That is how I feel today!

That is how I feel today!

Here I am again, and what a productive day so far!  (Good thing I just got my second Venti Starbucks to get me through the afternoon)  I got a really early start to today, the hubs had an early flight so G and I got going on our “jalk” .  We did a little over 2 miles, then AGAIN, for day 6 of 39 days, I went out and got my jog in.  Today I did 95Image-1  My goal, by Friday of this week, is to get 1.75 miles in with at least a 14 min mile average.    Do you think I can do this?  I do!  I did do about 5 minutes of really good stretching after this, and I have been on fire since.

As every other day, and every other person on the planet, I have/had a very long list of things to get done today!  I don’t know about you, but if I have things done and organized  at the end of the day, I sleep MUCH better.

My total caloric intake yesterday was 1567 calories, and my total caloric burn yesterday was 99Image-11927 calories.    I did not quite get my 20,000 + steps in yesterday, but I did get 9 miles in.


My macros yesterday were:

94Image-1.jpg  Again, I had a pretty good mix.  I feel like I did really good on the protein yesterday!  My macro nutrients were

96Image-197Image-1  Looks like maybe I needed a little more iron yesterday, but everything else looks pretty good.  How did you do?

I made a breakfast today that turned out to be a little MORE then I started out with, but I wanted to get a lot of protein in, so I ended up having 56 grams of protein for breakfast, which was great.  I get these Flap Jack muffin mixes, but I do not make it like the directions say.  I use egg whites for the liquid, I also add a little bit of a protein shake to this, and I add the powdered peanut butter, macca powder, some banana, and then I make like a pancake.   This somewhat takes care of cravings you might have, but also, because it has so much protein, it is very satiating.

When it came time for lunch, I wanted to clean up a bunch of vegetables out of the refrigerator.  I made a HUGE salad of mixed greens, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, radishes, mint, I added some apple, and then I had jerky I am having with this.   Lots of greens, what a lunch!

OK, on to other things.  I said yesterday that I was going to post the companies that I work with, so that all of you readers can go to the websites, order some great products, and help support this blog hopefully soon to be podcast.

Hello Ned.  This might be my favorite!

I have been using their Hemp Oil for some time, and it is great. I  am actually using it more and more for pain.  You know how some times, maybe you worked out too much or ran too much, or you just have some inflammation?  WE all know that feeling!  I use just about half of a dropper, let it set on my tongue for a minute or two, and within maybe 20-30 minutes, you feel good.  I still use this at night, not EVERY night, but when I know I am going to have problems sleeping, or maybe I am REALLY tired and I want to make sure I do sleep good.  It just gives you a more restful nights sleep.  I take one full dropper at bedtime, I hold this under my tongue for about 1 minute.  It really does make a difference.  I haven’t tried the 300 mg strength yet, but I am going to try this next.

Hemp has been used for thousands of years to support health and wellness and despite the common misconception, does not get you high.What it will do, however, is help regulate homeostasis in nearly every biological system in your body, bringing balance to body andmind.Try some under your tongue with one of our premium Hemp Oils or topically with our Hemp Infused Body Butter and Lip Balms.  I have tried both the body butter and the lip balm, and they are both GREAT.  I strongly suggest you try all of these if you have any trouble sleeping, and the body butter goes on like silk and leaves your skin SO soft.  Go to
