Well, what can I say??
There have been some ups and some downs. But am I giving up??
Heck no! I have been at this stage for a very very long time, and I am frustrated at times with how my body doesn’t work as I think it should. However, Deep down I want to be healthy and fit!
But there is always that little voice inside that says a cheat meal is ok; go ahead have that cookie or piece of bread! 🤯
As much as I try and silence it, sometimes it is just so loud. I have come to terms that this is being human.
But like I said I am not giving up. Last week I did finally bust through a plateau that has lasted more than 6 months.
I keep my daily log book of what I eat and try to hit the gym at least 3 times a week at the minimum.
Even with all these things the scale….the dreaded freaked scale doesn’t budge that often.
So about 3 months ago I put it away. I take it out once a week (as it does keep me accountable). Sincex then I have been going by how my clothing fit and next week I will do my measurements.
This 6 weeks was a new kick start into a different healthy plan and even though I may have had some bumps in the road and the scale may not say what I want it too: I still feel pretty darn good about myself.
I know I am stronger; I have less back pain which is huge for me. I can push myself a little harder at the gym knowing I won’t have weeks of pain afterwards.
Will I ever get to my desired body?? Who the hell knows but it is one moment, one step, one day at a time.
I may not be able to control everything but as long as I am healthy and my children see that I am trying to better myself that is a win in my books.
So keep on, keeping on and if you have had success with weight loss or keeping fit let me know your go to! I would love to have some feedback.
6 weeks isn’t a lot, I know. But the last few months I have been struggling.
A constant battle with the scale and I has not been pretty.
Numerous visits with the Dr. Multiple blood draws and in the end everyone still says the same,it’s your age, your genetics keep going and it will just melt off!
So yes like any human I get upset and sabotage myself.
So instead of repeating the same insanity I am asking for your help to keep me accountable and in the end I hope I can do the same for you.

What a weekend!
I love that since moving down the “southern Ontario” 😜 I have gotten the chance to really get to know my Aunts, Uncles and cousin.
Coming out to the farm and letting my kids run in the yard and just bring kids is always a calming experience. We slow down, we sip tea and cocktails. We chat the day away and of course we eat!
Being Thanksgiving this weekend we did it right! 👍🏻🍗
We always have way too much food and pretty much eat leftovers at every meal. We complain we eat too much, feel kinda sick but every year we do the same thing.
I am always amazed how easy it is the flip back into old habits and take the easy route and over indulge.
Well that is what I did this weekend. I over did it!!!! 😰
So know that we are back home this mommy is back on the wagon.
I will not deprive myself but instead make smarter healthier choice.
Having taken a quick look at the calendar it is 10 weeks until my next birthday.
Starting tomorrow I will be working on consistently making smarter, healthier choices!

So if you are like me and ready to start a healthy life style with the bonus of weight loss let’s make this Thanksgiving the last holiday from a healthy lifestyle.
Well life happens! I enjoyed my summer a little too much! But the best part of that statement is that I ENJOYED IT!!
So with the start of a new school year both my husband and I are starting back at our healthier lifestyle and making better food choices!
For me that is starting my day off with my shakes! I have tried many shakes over the years and this one is hands down the BEST I have tasted.
Jam packed with essential vitamins, and filling enough to be a meal replacement or an after work out recover drink!
Plus adding the Cocoa Power Boost it is like I am having a chocolate milk shake treat every morning. (That’s just my personal fav, these shakes are easily switched up to any flavour you like)
WHO doesn’t LOVE that idea.
I am truly AMAZED at all these results that have been coming in over the last month, these are just a few of the ladies. I am still compiling ones of the guys.
I haven’t yet taken my after photos and I am not sure if I am courageous enough to post them, time will tell!!!
Some of these results are just from 6 weeks of being on program.
I myself have been able to drop those pesky 10lbs of “baby weight” that just seem to never leave.
Just a few changes in my diet and I am amazed. Yeah yeah, I use that word too much but it really is the best one to describe it.
More over when you chat with these people they talk about the increased energy they have, feeling better in their skin and that they are so happy they took the time and focused it on themselves for a change.
I am still continuing my journey in hopes to reach my ultimate goal by the fall. With just with this initial loss of the first 10, the energy and just being happier, I think it was worth all the money in the world. 😘😁😎
