When it comes to working out, things don’t always go as planned. Made me laugh..

Like the video? Leave a comment tell me what you liked about it in the comment section or click share and share it with your friends!

 

I purchased and watched this video – Fat Head last year.. I thought it was great and shared my purchase with a few family members. The video has since been updated, which is fantastic because as you know, research is continuing in nutrition and new things are being found out everyday. So I’m sure the update to the video was needed. Here is some of the updated video from the movie. If you haven’t watched Fat Head yet, you should. It’s an interesting video and a nice jab at Morgan Spurlock’s movie Supersize me.. Everything in terms of how people gain weight, lose weight is well explained AND the graphics are fairly entertaining as well :)

Glad to see that the producer of Fat Head has changed how he(and his family) are eating. From eating low carb junk food to eating more of a paleo diet!

Have you watched the fathead movie? Let everyone know what you thought of it in the comments and if you like this newest version make sure you share this post with your friends!

The first week back to work I was doing great with working out and eating well, then last Sunday bam woke up feeling like I was getting a cold.. By the end of the day I was sick with the flu. I have to say it’s the weirdest cold/flu I’ve ever had. I’ve never had both at the same time and usually when I get sick I’m over it fairly quickly (a couple of days) the flu was gone within a day but the cold lasted another couple of days. I was off work for 2 days and I am still a week later feeling it a bit. I’m not 100%, more like 80%.

I mustered up the energy to go to the gym today. I didn’t have enough energy to do lots of weights but enough to get cardio in, so that’s what I did cardio for about 40 minutes then went to work.

1 week isn’t going to do much, it threw me off my routine for a little bit but I don’t think going to the gym while you are sick is good for anyone. I needed to rest my body and heal and now I’m getting better everyday. I’ll try my best at the gym this week but I’m not going to overdo it.

Tomorrow will be a day to celebrate, it was a year ago at 3:29am tomorrow morning that I had my little girl… with celebration of course comes cake and all the fun stuff with birthday parties. So we’ll see how I do by the end of the week but I have to say, so far, so good.

Hopefully no more flu/colds for a while and I can get back to the routine again of getting to the gym and getting some exercise in me! Wish me luck !

Happy Birthday to my little girl!!!! The best gift I’ve ever received and the most amazing little girl ever! There’s no way I could have ever imagined how much love I would have for that little girl but she has my heart and always will.

Going strong – feeling great!

This past week has been tough and incredibly stressful for a number of reasons BUT I have managed to make it to the gym Friday last week, Monday and Wednesday this week. So far, so good! It’s amazing how even after only a few sessions at the gym I have already noticed an improvement in strength. I have to say that my baby was getting pretty heavy and I was really noticing it when I picked her up. This week, she was easier to pick up. That makes me happy! It means I’m gaining muscle and that is my goal! I have been upping my weights each time I go to the gym by 2.5 – 5 lbs depending on what the exercise is. I’m actually amazed at how quickly I’m getting back to the strength I was at a year 1/2 ago. I really think that in 2 months time I’ll be at if not past where I was before in lifting weights. Hopefully I’ll be back to my old weight by then too but who knows! I am down a few pounds but the first few weeks will be hard to judge just how much I’m really losing because I’m also gaining muscle..

I was however happy to pick up my box the other day at the post office! As soon as I have a minute I’m going to brew up some Kombucha!
