With the start to the new school year and end of summer, the past month has come and gone by without a word from me about our adventures (okay maybe a photo or two.. or 50!)
So I will start by saying, we have gotten back into the swing of things and exciting things are happening! I have been an It Works distributor for 3 months and am getting PAID to help others get a handle on their health, WOW! It is amazing for me to be able to share my experiences with others in hopes that it will inspire them to just make little changes in the way they go about their day to day.
We (yes my Hubby finally got on board with me!) started back at the gym this week. It is nice he can meet me after work and we can talk about our day while working out with the kids having fun in the play area. Even though I have steadily been dropping the weight and losing inches the past few months, it is a slow process getting back into my workout rhythm. I am sore and my stamina is horrible! I also got a fitness evaluation yesterday. It was a very big eye opener for what I needed to work on to achieve my goals, step out of my comfort zone and try some new things like free weights and Body Sculpting. Yikes! I am going to use those measurements and numbers to push myself past my limit, that is my Conscious Decision.
My efforts are based on 2 words that I say to myself multiple times a day, Conscious Decisions: Choices made with full awareness of the consequence. You can choose to get up off the couch and move for 30 minutes, or not to. It is your choice. You can choose to eat a side salad with your steak instead of a baked potato. That is also your choice.
I don’t make every single meal at home, our family is “on the go” quite often. No matter where we go, there is always a healthier choice you can make. Like I just found out last week that Red Robin not only has bottomless fries, it now has bottomless BROCCOLI!! THANKS SO MUCH RED ROBIN!!
I am compiling a list of recipes I have tried, smoothies, full family meals, easy breakfasts, etc. I will start posting them regularly so you can follow along with what I do. I know it has always helped me to have a clear list of things I can eat without the consequences and I hope you enjoy what I come up with.
For those that would like to know what products we take, our daily supplements include
- It’s Vital Core Nutrition
- It’s Vital Minerals
- It’s Vital Omega-3
- Confianza (a MUST for stress balance)
- New You (Sleep Quality and Memory, builds lean muscle mass)
And with “cheat” meals that include higher carbohydrates and fats (pizza, pasta, desserts, etc.) I take the Fat Fighters. It will block some of the fat & carbs from meals, help keep a healthy balance in blood glucose and reduce cravings.
We have also included the ProFIT protein mix into our smoothies after workouts or as a meal replacement.
All of the It Works information can be found on my site http://justamomonthego.myitworks.com/. I love talking about the products and money making opportunities, so feel free to email me or message me on Facebook and I will answer any questions you have about it!
