My Weekly Lifestyle: Weekly Report

Hello everyone,

So the question that I ask is have you started on your new lifestyle change and if you have, good for you keep on going. If not, what are you waiting for??? So I wanted to make this video easy to help you start off right. Want to watch the video scroll on down or click on the link. Don’t forget to follow for more great videos!

****************************************************************

Note to self:

After reviewing this week:

  • I have to make sure I drink 8 glasses of water each day.
  • Take multi-vitamins and iron pills daily or make all natural shakes.
  • I need to eat every 4 hours,I need to have a reminder or alarm on my phone.
  • Need to plan meals, a week in advance.

***************************************************************

Tip of the Week: 

Getting back into a workout routine is hard. The first and second week you will tumble but stick to it. By the third week it becomes easier and the fourth week you’re back to your old or new routine. Don’t get discouraged, I gain 10 pounds out of the 37 I lost. Am I upset? No. Why? Because, I enjoyed my holiday’s with great food and good company. Now, get up and do what you need to do to reach your goals.

****************************************************************

Note to self:

After reviewing this week:

  • I still need to sleep 6-8 hours a day.

***************************************************************

Tip of the Week: 

When facing a change in your lifestyle, in the beginning it will be difficult. Especially when you add something new, unexpected and quick to your life it can be difficult to manage yourself and everything else around you. With this week tip, it is something extremely simple and it helps you stay on track.

When you manage and organize your household everything else falls into place.  Meaning when your household is clean, organized and your everyday responsibility are met, all the extra activities will fall into place. I’m not saying you need a perfect household but it easier for me to come home knowing I don’t need to spend so much of my time with the household task. With this knowledge I’m able to exercise, spend time with my munchkin and perform other activities in my list without the worries of my daily task (mind you, I still need to perform my daily task but I’m able to do them quickly and efficient).

Tip of the Week: 

This is not my proudest week, when it comes to eating healthy and working out. In a way I’m glad it did happen, it shows I’m only human. I’m bound to make mistake and lose track of my eating habits and my workouts. My tip for this week, if you fallen don’t get discourage, learn from it. Everything will not fall into place in one day or one week it takes time but don’t give up or get discourage.  This is how we learn!

Next week, I plan to find cooking ingredients to cook healthier and great for diabetes (for my husband) and make homemade snack bags to go for Emily and for myself. I also plan to find workout DVD that are kid friendly or find some on the internet. (Emily love to workout with me, well for the first half an hour of the Tea Bo, but she will dance with me in the Zumba. She loves to dance!).

My tip for this week: If you, taken your first step in deciding to eat healthier and workout on a regular basis, then congratulations!! Second step is to write everything down (if you need a guide line, you can check mine, click here) and now you ready to begin on this tough journey but once you reach your goal is worth it. So, you have written everything down, you bought your workout clothes, food, etc. Now you ready for your work out but WAIT, you forgot one more step! What?! What you mean one more step? I’m ready now!  Continue on the plans you written for yourself but take a minute and call your doctor and /or nutritionist to make an appointment…if you can only see your doctor every 3 months (like me, except when I have an asthma attack) continue on your plan till you see them.

Why contact the doctor?  It’s very important that you consult with him or her of your plans, reason being they can do a physical and see if there anything you need to know, speak with them about your eating plans and ESPECIALLY any supplements you are taking or thinking of taking. Reason being if you’re taking a multivitamin and you have low iron, you would want to know if the multivitamin has enough iron that you need or do you need to take another pill that only contains iron in additional to the multivitamin. It’s very important to consult with them and see what you can take or not, it like the saying “too much of a good thing can be bad” and this is true (it can be for anything other than supplements and exercise, as well). The more you know the better chance you can actually take care of yourself in all aspects. What better way, when you leave from that appointment, you confidence increases, you have learn something new, you’re not lost, and it show your motivation to reach that main goal.

What to take with you:

  • Take the notebook that you been writing down your plans and your weekly workout.
  • Print out any supplement information that you are either taking and or want to take.
  • Take a pen with you if you need to write down any information that they are telling you, especially when it come to your body and any condition you need to be aware off.

Wish you the best on this journey for a better you!
