Madness

I felt like this weekend flew by so fast! Maybe because I have been busy at work this past Friday and Monday but I am happy that it finally slowed down today.

And finally, I am in week 10 of my P90X/Insanity hybrid........I can't wait to finish this.....like for real because this Insanity is getting out of control. I guess since this is the last 4 weeks of the schedule, they pumped up the workouts and put to toughest Insanity workouts (Max Interval Circuit, Max Interval Plyo, and Max Cardio Conditioning) at the end. They are murder!!!!!!!! Here is a clip by Gangsta83 doing Insanity Max Interval Plyo so you can see the craziness that is going on:



I believe this has to be the toughest workout that I have done since getting back in shape. I will try this week to record video of me doing it so y'all can make the "What The Hell She Think She is Doing" face.........(0_o) or (-_______-)

Also, over this weekend and yesterday, I am happy to report that I didn't eat any fast food, ::Pats self on the back::. Tempted but stayed strong and ate at home. I took some pictures of things I ate over the weekend......yeah, some of it maybe some quick fix meals but I'm sure it beats going and grabbing something fast (one step at a time):

Women Lie About What They Eat

This is the biggest lie women tell.Sure, honesty is the best policy…most of the time. After all, little white lies happen, and often they're totally harmless (telling your aunt you love the crazy birthday gift she gave you, saying you had fun at the end of a lame date, etc).

But according to a new survey of 3,000 women by Timex, most of us are lying to ourselves and other people on a regular basis about something that isn't totally harmless: What we eat. And we do it often-the survey found we lie an average of nine times a day about our diet.

According to researchers, the foods most likely to prompt a lie were chocolate, cookies, cake, wine, cheese, and bread. Of course, the occasional fib doesn't hurt anyone, but regularly deceiving yourself can be bad for your health.

(Who stole the cookies from the cookie jar???? - Source)

Check out the top lies:

1. It was only a small portion
2. I'll have a big lunch so I won't eat much after this
3. I only treat myself once in a while
4. I always eat my fruits and vegetables
5. I didn't touch any of the cookies
6. I had only one glass
7. I didn't eat the last one
8. I won't eat again today after this
9. I was too busy to have lunch
10. I might as well polish them off now or they'll go bad

What do you fib about the most?

Well here are some of the biggest lies that I tell myself or others............................
1. Large amounts of Chocolate is actually good for my health
2. I have to have Oreos in my life everyday in order for me to live.
3. I don't have to eat a lot of veggies since I eat a lot of fruit.
4. I don't need water everyday.

Well, just in case you're having some issues with inflammation, I would advice you to take the Nopal cactus fruit juice, but before that, you need to read about the nopalea reviews

Why Today Is Important To Me.................

Because today marks the day that I got my shhh together. This time last year, January 12th, 2011, my husband and I went to Wal-Mart to buy a scale. We were discussing for the millionth time of how I wanted to get myself back in shape. In the past, we have had this discussion before but it always ended up with him trying to get more fit (because he was never out of shape) and my sitting on my butt eating something crazy. So we are on the aisle with the scales and out of curiosity, I just pulled one down, took off my shoes, and wanted to see how much I weighed. I'm thinking I'm about 170 to 180 lbs. Wrong!!!!!!!! It said 194 lbs..........What!!!!!!! I was shocked, depressed, and wanted to cry all at the same time. We ended up getting one and when we got home, I took off all of my clothes (don't worry, I'm not going to turn this story into some type of freaky tales, LOL), got back on the scale because I just knew it was wrong. And it was.........I was 192 lbs.......(-___-).

So after fighting with the scale, I started to think......"How did I get here?" One word........Lazy! Which was crazy for me to even be like that because I used to love to exercise. What happened????? Then my husband snapped me back to reality and basically said that if I wanted to change, I had to do it for myself and get off my butt.........point blank. Now it was my time.......yes, I said that in the past but 2011 was different. I had a family to think about......especially my daughter.......I wanted to grow old to see her turn into a beautiful woman and being lazy and eating crappy was just cutting my life shorter and shorter.

Now that I had my mental game down, it was time for me to get my fitness and eating habits in check. First, it started with working out at home with fitness DVDs. I knew I didn't have time to go to the gym but I knew I wanted to find something that I could do at home while watching my daughter. It started with Tae Bo (yes the classic but always can kick your butt Billy Blanks), then to Turbo Jam, to Turbo Fire, to CLX, to now P90X and Insanity. If you told me back in January 2011 that I would now be doing P90X/Insanity, I would have laughed straight in your face and told you that you were tripping. Now, I can't even believe that I can do some of the stuff that I can do now.

Second, I had to control my eating. Now, I knew that this was going to be the hardest thing I do because I just love eating period. Of course it was impossible for me to cut out things that I loved (chocolate, mac and cheese, and etc.) but I learned that moderation is the key. So when I first started, I had a daily journal of what I would eat and would set up a goal (for example, 1650 net calories per day). Then I found MyFitnessPal and the rest was history. I loved how they set up my goal, tracking what I eat, tracking my exercises, and the nutritional breakdown (calories, fat, carbs, and etc.). Let me say this, I still have days that I fail........eating too much fast food, too much sweets, too much of everything but I also learned that if I mess up one day, don't beat myself up.....I'm human......just don't do it everyday.

So today is January 12th, 2012 and I am 40 lbs lighter, I love to exercise again, I try to make healthier food choices, and now can keep up with my high energy husband and daughter. Believe me, it can be done because of years of failing, I finally got it right through a lot of sweat, pain, laughter, praying, and just not stopping.

Thanks for letting me share my story and I'm ready to hit 2012 head on:

Hair Transition: Month 3

Now that I'm heading into month 4, let me review how everything is going............

First, I have no complaints because everything has been going well so far. I have a lot of new growth coming in so that makes me happy to know that my hair is actually growing. Not really having a problem with my two textures yet because I guess my new growth is not that long and I use gel to help control my edges. Still doing my protective styling and the only time that I use heat is when I am blow drying my hair (but it's set to a low setting with the heat).

So these are the products that I have been using during my third month of transitioning:




Shampoo: Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Shampoo - I only shampoo my hair once a month to remove build up but I'm planning to switch to a sulfate free shampoo when I have finished this product.

Conditioner: Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner - I use this in between my shampoo washes as my co-wash conditioner. I still love this product because it leaves my hair so soft and smooth. Also great for detangling my hair.

Deep Conditioner: Organix Macadamia Oil Intense Moisture Mask - I only deep condition once a month (I use this when I shampoo my hair) so I apply this onto my hair, leave in for about 45 minutes, and then rinse out. I like this product because it leaves my hair soft and manageable.

Leave-In Conditioner: Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioner - I apply this to my hair after I wash my hair. This really leaves my hair moisturize and shiny.

Daily Styling Products: Palmers Olive Oil Spray, Smooth N' Shine Styling Gel, and Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque - I ran out of my Palmer's Olive Oil Gro Therapy cream so I decided to try Shea Moisture. I know it's made for deep conditioning but I use it as a styling aid when I do bantu knot outs, ponytails, and etc. I only use the Smooth N' Shine for when I pull my hair into a ponytail or for edge control. I use the Palmers Olive Oil Spray each day to keep my hair moisturize.

Here are some pics of my everyday styles (you can see some of the new growth coming in):
