Happy Thursday Everyone!!!!
A quick recap on the weekly workouts, during the last few weeks I actually was on and off working out and eating healthy, mostly off. Reason being and not to make any excuses, I went to a lot of birthday parties, barbeques and went out with family and friends. I’m not complaining I know I should have done something but in all honesty I enjoy myself. I enjoyed the food which was great and I had the chance to spend some time with my family and friends before the summer ended and were all too busy to spend some time with each other (such as school starting soon for our kids and ourselves, work, etc). Unfortunately I have gain all the weight back that a lost recently, I’m upset but it what I get for eating my face off…lol. Now I’m back, I’m refocusing myself and working a routing that includes a part-time job, school, Lil Jomie Creations and being a mom and wife. I know it a lot on my plate but it can be manageable, I just have to organize myself and dare I say it yes schedule myself…lol. Thanks for being patient, understanding and still being here ;-).

5 Cups of water, slept for 7 hours, taken 2 iron pills. My 6th day at the job (don’t worry I won’t continue writing the days I work for the following weeks unless it necessary for me to understand what happen during that day).
After reviewing what I eat and the workout I did during the week, I see where I need to improve. I know for the following week I have to eat breakfast, if anyone is wondering why I eat around 2pm that time I normally get home from work, I wake up at 4- 4:30am to get ready and be there at 7am. So you can imagine during that time I don’t have an appetite and when I get out of work I’m STARVING. I have to eat at least 4 meals a day to keep my metabolism going and have energy throughout the day. I have to work out a little bit more, not every day but at least include Tae Bo 3 times a week.
**Tip of the week: I recommend writing things down such as what you eat, what you did throughout the day, what vitamins you taken and so forth. It’s a great resource, a guide to help you plan better for the following weeks or if you don’t see any changes in your body or health and even if you want to add a next goal to your workout routine once your reach your goals. What I write in my weekly post is a brief summary of what I have done during the week, if you see my actually journal/planner you see what Joey, Emily and I eat during the week, what each of us taken, what meals to cook, who favors what, and so forth (I probably one day take a photo or scan pages of my daily life is like for you to see if you’re interested). Got a little of the topic ;-), so go ahead it you only need a notebook and a pen. Write what you have done so far through the day and at the end of the week look back and you see what your week has been and what you consume. It a great realization technique when you’re busy throughout the week that you haven’t notice what you’re doing for that day such as eating only two meals.**

♥♥ News: At this moment I’m currently working on a workout journal to sell on Lil Jomie Creations, once it’s done I will post photos and a link to my shop on etsy. The journal will consist of a space to write what you have consume during the day, water consumptions, what supplements you have taken (including medicine), how you felt on that day and so forth.
