Warning, vent ahead



This was somewhat inspired by another blogger's video but it has been in my mind for a minute. In case you didn't know, this ish ain't easy. NOPE So if you thought it would be then you need to suck it up and do what you gotta do or fall the heck back. No one understands this more than me ya heard. I know what it's like to work your arse off, eat right, and do all the right things only to lose NOTHING. Yes this has happened to me. This hypo ain't no joke. But you know what, I haven't stopped and I won't stop. Even if I don't look the way I want, I know what I am doing is the right thing. I feel a lot better, I have more energy, and I love knowing I am setting a good example for my girls.

If you saw me, you would probably assume I am just another overweight chick. But if you looked into my world you would know that on most days I am up at 5am working out, then I eat, cook for my kids, take them to school, eat healthy at work, go workout again and come home. I rarely eat out. I rarely eat fried foods, and on most days, about 90% of what I eat is fruit and veggies. So if anyone understands how hard it is to balance life, eat healthy, and still find time to work on having their best body, it is me.

I can't fuss enough, take enough pictures, or post enough that will make you do what you know you need to do. YOU have to want it for yourself. YOU have to be fed up with being where you are. YOU have to choose to make better choices for yourself. That's it. Most people fail because they are not planning. You have to do some sort of planning to avoid the pitfalls along the way. You don't have to be a food network chef. You can simply start by going shopping and having healthy food items. That alone will help you to make big changes. I had 29 people sign up for the 2 a day challenge and several have dropped out. I knew it would happen but I hope they are able to still work on having their best body ever. Winning prizes is nice but looking great and feeling great is much better. Take care. Q

Hey Q,

I'm participating in Monica's 14 day challenge. Today was my 1st day exercising since starting the challenge. It was HARD! At one point during the routine, I thought I was going to pass out. I think I struggled because of the lack of carbs. Do you have any suggestions? I want to do this NO I NEED to do this. Please help.

Hey Kim6992,
You can eat oatmeal for your carbs. Not the instant flavored kind. I eat mine with lots of cinnamon and a little honey. You can also get it from fruits. Apples, bananas and pears give you the good kind of carbs as well. You may need to eat one of them before and after your workout. HTH Q
