Weight Loss Update : Activity



 Right Side 2010 I was at my heaviest  286. Left side is me today. 


So I wanted to update my progress so far.


I currently weight 222.2.  a few things have changed I have started to try out another machine at the gym which now has made me build up more momentum .

My work out routine for right now is

20 treadmill walk 3.4 and jog 5.2  ( Cool Down) 5 minutes

I then go on the elliptical for 15 minutes (Cool Down) 5 minutes

 Bike for 10 minutes

On My leg and arm day I do the above routine but include these to it.
I do legs on of the machines 5 sets of 10 (2-3 Sets)
And I do arms on machine 5 sets of 10(2-3 Sets)

 I am still at working out 3x a week it’s really all I can do now with my busy schedule.

Monday, Wednesday and Saturday are the days I workout. On Wednesday is when I  do my leg exercises and my arm exercises.  

 For me this works and as I continue my journey I will embark on new things to-do.

For me personally I think it’s extremely important to get familiar with the machines you use and get comfortable using them especially if the gym is new stopping grounds for you.
I know you can walk in the gym and feel overwhelmed remember take it easy and don't be so hard on yourself. Small baby steps eventually add up to big changes





Food

I am at 34 weight watcher points and again its all portion control I eat tons of veggies and fruit.


 When I go through old photos it brings tears to my eyes, because I felt imprisoned to my body, I had the worst self esteem every. The saying “Your outer  reflect your inner”
For me personally that was such a true sentiment in my life.


 If you have read some of my other WL updates. I have said this from the start. For my journey I really had to deal with my INNER SELF before I even attempted to work on the outer.

 What really helped me? Gods healing power, his strength and a 9 month life coaching class that helped me break free from the mental strongholds in my life.

What I mean about god's healing power, its gods will that you live in victory its his will that you don't live IN  bondage and its his will to restore you. Sometimes our own "will" and the many strongholds (  Faulty Mental beliefs ) keep us from his will, keeps us from our full potential.  That faulty belief system keeps us in our own bondage and in order to come out of it we have to break it.



(This was my Tool , I am not persuading anybody to my beliefs I'm merely sharing with you "MY Journey" and ultimately  you have to do what works for yours.)  


Proverbs 16:3 

Commit your :Works to the lord and he will establish your "plans"



 I will continue to update you as I move along.

Thank you for stopping by. If your struggling and need to talk feel free to email me I would love to reach out to you.

ProbioSlim Probiotics


         Being on a weight loss journey it is very important for me to take my daily supplements. Being in my mid 30s digesting foods, I love and are good for me to eat is challenging at times. I did tons of research about the benefits of a daily probiotic . I was offered a great opportunity to review Proboslim which helps with digestion, promotes strong metabolic boost and the most important it eases bloating & reduced "tummy pooch".

I have been taking this for almost three weeks now and have noticed a slight difference in my "daily bowel habits". A big improvement from before  also   Let me be very clear regular diet and fitness activity  can enhance and activate the wonderful benefits  that  Proboslim offers.




How to take  Probioslim  : Take 1 Tablet with breakfast and one with Lunch. 


My Yummy SoyChorizo/Egg whites breakfast burrito with fat free beans 7(Weight Watchers Points) 







Lunch Salad, W/Fat Free Dressing 1PP and a Grilled Cheese W/ turkey 7
Total Weight Watcher Points for Meal is 8 Points 




Pro’s

  • Easy on Stomach

  • Easy To Swallow

  • Simple To Take

  • Boost immunity

  • Replaces/Replenishes good bacteria in your stomach 

Cons’

  • Because this pill does have some Caffeine if you are highly sensitive to caffeine you may want to consult with your primary Dr before beginning this supplements

Overall

  • Great product that has worked great for me thus far. Mind you I have already lost 42 pound through diet and exercise I was at a plateau for the past 3 weeks and when taking Probioslim, it has helped kick start my metabolism and get me out of that nasty plateau


  • Where can you find ProbioSlim at? your local GNC stores or by stopping by their website you can claim a free 14 day risk free trial>>> HERE <<<<


Dress of the week


Next Stop, Sacramento Dress

This dress is AMAZING, the colors and pattern look so much better in person, the fit is great ( I got a 2X)  and so is the quality of the material, the length is shorter if you look in the description it does say that the dress is made from the mini silhouette but in plus sizes its not really "mini", but then again it really all depends on your height I'm 5'6 and hit me right at the knees.  This is  a vibrant full of personality kind of dress . When shopping online always make sure to take your own measurements  , don't be scared to size up. Don't be afraid to send stuff-back. You learn from trial and error . I would consider my self a pro online shopper , because really I do a lot of online shopping.      Don't forget take a extra $20 off your first order at MODCLOTH  by Clicking Here.

See you next week as I spice things up with some ASOS CURVE ! 
Also New weight loss update coming soon 


 I have listed some stuff straight out of my Closet so if your looking to snag some cute affordable, gently used items take a looksieeee    >>>> MY STORE<<<<<<

❤ oNecklace Review ❤




The team at oNecklace kindly offered me a necklace of my choice to review.  With so many options I was stumped with choosing one, I seriously wanted them all. Nevertheless I opted for the 24k Gold Plated Monogram Necklace

I've had this necklace since December of last year and I really have to say that for this necklace being gold plated it has really lived passed my expectations. It hasn't’ tarnished or become dull, like most gold platted items I have previously own. I love it and have my eye on another necklace that I will be purchasing soon.


Pro’s – Good Quality, Fast shipping, variety of choices that do include full gold items. Easy site navigation.  Affordable.



Cons- Unfortunately don’t wear this necklace in the shower or in water, although made of good quality because it is gold plated it may tarnish, keeping it out of water preserves the life of the necklace.
Again thank you Onecklace for a pleasant experience.

I have something special to share with you.
A Wonderful 10 % off coupon should you be interested in picking up your own

I will see you soon

❤Dress of the week I can Zig it ❤

It’s that time again. Dress of the week.  This week’s dress is  from ModCloth. Yes I know I have an obsession with that site, and after that awesome 50% sale I have tons of cuteness to share.









This Dress is the I Can Zig it Dress. I went with my gut and went for a size 2x which fit perfectly. Right now I am a 43 -41- 46. I have absolutely no cons about this dress. It is every thing I wanted it to be. I stand 5’6 so the length hit me just above my knees. I wore this to work so I wore it with a blazer to give it an office look. I think I pulled it of well. I love that I can  bring my own style to the work place. I am defiantly not fit for a uniform job it would bore me to pieces.


The good news is this dress is still on sale! One thing about the sale item you literally have to get them why they are hot because you can blink your eye and that dress you been eyeballing is gone. It’s happened way too often


A Successful online shopping spurge is when 1) its on sale and 2) its in my size.


I have even better news. Here is a $20 gift credit for your next MODCLOTH purchase   ❤CLICK HERE❤ 



I like to share the love  and if your anything like me saving a few bucks makes my shopping experience a happy one.


Okay Cutie pies I will see you next week for the dress of the week

❤Dress of the week❤



















Finally! My Modcloth goodies came in the mail. Actually I have had them for about 2 weeks but have been bombarded with work leaving me little time to snap an outfit post. I actually also have placed (2) other orders because of modcloths awesome 50% off sale.


So look out for my weekly Post featuring The Dress of the Week.

This Week dress is the Migrate Expectations Dress

 


Love Love the cute flamingo print very roomy and just adorable and its on sale right now. I really should have sized down but since I am in-between sizes right now I went with a 2x and should have gotten a 1x oh well still adorable I am between a 16 and 18 depending on fabric, and cut. Never the less I will probably post it up for sale as soon as I finish up my store website of stuff right out of my closet. So keep an eye out for that. 


Review 

Pros- Cute Fabric, not clingy to the body ,  Stretchy, great Colors, Great Lenght.

Cons- Runs Large so size down. A little big with the straps and Bust. 

Overall Verdict- I love the dress if I would have sized down it would have been perfect. The sash gives the dress no life, so add your own belt  it will bring the outfit together 

 Take advantages of the 50% OFF sale and even Better 
here is $20 to spend on your first order I love to share the love 



See you Next week for the Dress of The Week..
