Jillian Michaels.

I apologize in advance, you may get grossed out by this post.

The Water Detox. ...

In January, a friend of mine posted about the Jillian Michaels Water Detox. Intrigued by the fact that you could add this mixture of water and other off ingredients together and loose up to 5 pounds of water weight ... I decided to try it!

When I did the detox in January, I partnered it with exercise at a minimum of 3 days a week and a 1200 calorie diet. As a result, I lost 5-7 pounds of water weight in only 7 days. I felt great! Also, it really inspired me to continue on!

 So,... We have increased our work outs, calorie intake (because Myfitnesspal kept yelling at me to eat more, as did my human friends) and now about 7 weeks later, we are going to do the water detox again.

Both Chris and I weighed ourselves this morning and will weigh ourselves again at the end of the 7 days to see the results.

Along with the water detox, I try to eat over 1200 calories but less than 1800 calories. It really depends on the amount of exercise we do. If we do a 4.5 mile walk in the morning, and then a 2 mile jog in the evening, I'll eat a snack around 8 p.m. (either fruit, boost shake, skinny cow ice cream...) - I TRY to eat something healthy.  

This journey to health has been fun. I'm looking forward to rewarding myself with a trip to Islands of Adventure when I reach my next goal! 

Stay thirsty my friends. ...

Christmas with Toddlers, How we are doing things a little differently this year.

Christmas is such a loved season, by so many people - myself included. I love it so much, I had a Christmas themed wedding and got married...
