I have been having anxiety lately.
From the shower, to today at work and I am praying that inside I’ll feel okay. Because in my heart, I know it will be.
“Despite these benefits, a diet exclusive in processed foods will almost certainly lead to disease. Our bodies are designed to eat natural, raw foods; there’s no doubt about that. Raw foods contain beneficial enzymes and nutrients that are destroyed through processing. Just because a pill contains the “nutrients” of a whole shopping list of vegetables doesn’t mean our bodies get the same benefit as eating the vegetables themselves. Nutrients, enzymes, and other components of the foods we eat work synergistically. We really don’t know how well they work when they’re isolated from each other, or when we ingest synthetic versions.”
“Eliminating all processed food is probably not going to happen for most of us. But we can make better food choices and supplement our diets with missing components. We can opt for the apple over the apple juice. We can choose a baked potato or salad over french fries. We can choose whole-grain bread over the white fluff that is passed off as bread. We can take the time to read food labels. Chances are, if you can’t pronounce it, you shouldn’t be eating it. We can choose processed foods with a very short list of ingredients; the longer the list, the more processing involved, and the more nutrition lost.”
So this isn’t bad is it? You can find some SUPER healthy yet SUPER quick to eat each day. I love stuffed green peppers, and black bean brownies. Below I am going to list a few websites where I wouldn’t be the same had I not found them via the web. They are all saving graces. The stuff these girls come up with is far beyond me but I appreciate it to the fullest. The recipes range from “paleo” to gluten to sugar free recipes (desserts, dinners ext), yet all so amazing. Again, it may take a little extra time in the morning ( I do all my cooking on sunday but yes when I am lazy I go to Whole Foods and get enough food for the day. I only recommend this because I LOVE WHOLE FOODS!!!!!! But it does get costly), but it is all for good purpose. I would hate for someone to actually be hungry.. because yet I get hungry pains (which try drinking eater first. They say your body thinks its hungry but really dehydrated. IF not at least you get a little fuller on water and will either wait a little longer to eat the next meal or will eat less if you do decide to eat).

My products and what I use..
I use Dymatize in casein (cookies and cream) and their protein powder (elite gourmet- chocolate) as well.
Myofusion (chocolate) but the ORIGINAL FORMULA not this probotic BULLSHIT- tastes like heaven. So if you can find the original Myofusion in chocolate snag it. You want to drink a healthy motherfreakin chocolate milkshake…heres your chance!
For peanut/almond butters try and find one with almonds as the only ingredient (be advised that these are $5 jars lol).. if you cant do that ingredients should only be peanuts or almonds, salt, and some kind of oil.
PB2 is a great peanut butter “substitute” (I guess you’d call it. It is peanuts in powdered form. WAY less calories and fat.. but you have to either use it in that form, for baking, or add water to make a paste. Tastes great though! They have plain and chocolate flavored.
Nuts ‘N More is a almond butter (they also have peanut butter), but it has whey in it.. so for 2TBS there is 14g of protein!! and it really does taste amazing. They have plain and chocolate in both PB and almond butter as well.
P28 breads– In love. Nothing else I can say. Both items (sandwich bread and bagels) taste great, but the bagels are by far my favorite. It’s bread with 28 grams of protein..yep. and the bagel toasted….so.fucking.good.omg.
QUEST BARS– A “dieters” saving grace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not even kidding.. I am totally surprised this isn’t listed first (not that any of these products are in any type of order, it’s just these are AMAZING). They come in a wide variety of flavors and all are amazing, however some taste better warm (like the brownie one.. add some pb HOLY FUCK!).. but they make you smile. *Try to stick with the original line and not the natural ones (the natural ones have more sugar alcohols meaning more empty carbohydrates).
Larabars– These are great but should be eaten in the morning or if you really just need a sweet treat. They are made with dates and cashews or whatever they decide to come up with. My favorite is the chocolate chip cookie dough.
Most of these items you can find on: http://www.muscularinsider.com
The specialty products (like the nuts n more) can only be purchased via their online store.
I eat an hour after I wake up.I am not afraid to eat. If I want something I have it. Everything in moderation is key. You can still live and do the things you want to do and eat the things you watt to eat but you have to be smart about it. If you want to eat extra food or more calories then a normal day just know that you are going to have to work it off or don’t eat it. Unless you really don’t care then you probably shouldn’t be reading this blog in the first place. I am becoming a little space case and can’t think of anything else that I have been emailed about or useful information. This is what I know and what I know works for ME. I have been a personal trainer for aw file and have trained clients and aided in their weight loss. I know that a calorie is a calorie and a pound of FAT is 3500 calories. You do the math. If you don’t work out and over eat…. yes the pounds will be a packin lack in! And weight gain (unless is muscle) sucks dick!!!!!!!! That and it totally takes more time to take it off as it does putting it on. #smh. lol. Plain and simple.. stop eating junk, processed and fast food (the ingredients should be wholesome natural organic and less than 10 ingredients if it is so called “processed”). Eat to live; don’t live to eat, every in moderation, and be patient 🙂
I eat every 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
I eat a carbohydrate only in the AM hours, and after my work out ONLY (Unless its a cheat meal).
I eat a protein in every meal.
I don’t skimp on fats either (but again I don’t track my macros. I become way too obsessed, so I eat when I want). If I want it I have it.
No processed foods. No fast food. No added sugar products.
Cheat meals are once a week (Cheat MEAL not cheat DAY.. huge difference and a day full of bad eating will set you back at least a week worth of progress… so.not.worth.it).
Working out will always feel hard.
Exercise is work. It elevates your heart rate, makes you somewhat breathless, and causes your muscles to burn. It’s tiring—sometimes exhausting. Yes, exercise does get easier with time, but it will never be “easy.” If it were easy, it wouldn’t be exercise. You see, beyond just getting your body moving (which is great but will only get you so far), exercise has to challenge you. You have to work past your comfort zone in order to train your heart, lungs, and muscles to get stronger and fitter. Over time, yes it will become easier to walk at the 3 mph pace you started, but once that becomes easy, it’s time to walk faster, which brings me to another cold, hard truth: You have to work harder as you get fitter. Think of it exercise as a challenge to continuously improve on what you just accomplished.
Not every movement or activity counts as exercise.
Let me preface this one by saying that any body movement is good for you. Whether you’re fidgeting at your desk, walking across the office to talk to a co-worker, taking a single flight of stairs instead of the elevator, or playing Wii tennis—all movement is good, especially when you’re just starting out. But here’s the real truth: Not all movement is “exercise.” The two are very, very different. For any activity to count as true exercise, it has to meet certain parameters, like lasting at least 10 continuous minutes (so those stairs you took or that walk from your car to the store doesn’t count as a workout), it has to elevate your heart rate to an aerobic level (that “hard” feeling I mentioned above), and more. If you count all of these “activities” or body movements you do each day as workouts, then you are only shortchanging yourself—and you could be hurting your weight loss efforts.
One workout may not undo a sedentary lifestyle.
Working out really matters for your health and longevity, but more research these days is telling us that simply exercising—whether 10, 30, or even 60+ minutes a day—may not be enough to offset the effects of an otherwise sedentary lifestyle. Just because you exercise doesn’t mean it’s OK to be a couch potato the other 23 hours of the day. Sitting, driving, working from a computer, sleeping—all of these “inactivities” make up the bulk of many people’s days, and the longer you sit still, the worse the effects can be on your health. I talked a little about “activity” vs. exercise above. This is where those extra non-workout activities DO matter. They may not be true workouts, but they do have benefits. More movement is good—and that is how you achieve the benefits of an active lifestyle.
You’re not burning as many calories as you think.
“Burn up to 800 calories an hour!” How often do you see phrases like that advertised on workout DVDs, group classes, and other fitness products? The truth is, most of these numbers are seriously inflated, and the average person won’t burn a fraction of that claim. This is the case for treadmills, stationary bikes and other cardio machines, too. Those “calorie burn” screens can be off by 30% or more. SparkPeople tries to be a little more conservative with the numbers we use on our Fitness Tracker, but just remember that calculators/trackers are estimates. When it comes to weight loss, you’re better off with a conservative approach to calorie burn. Assume you’re actually burning fewer calories than a tracker or machine says you are. A better way to gauge what you’re really burning is by wearing your own heart rate monitor. While a general fitness tracker would tell me that an hour of Spinning burned some 600+ calories, my HRM (using my gender, weight, and actual heart rate during the workout) showed closer to 400. That’s a big difference that could really affect one’s weight loss.
It won’t allow you to eat whatever you want.
A walk around the block doesn’t earn you a brownie. That yoga class doesn’t mean it’s OK to indulge in an ice cream sundae this weekend. How often do you “reward” yourself for working out by undoing most of your efforts with one or more dietary splurges? Remember, exercise really doesn’t burn as many calories as people assume it does, so a single workout—even a rigorous one—won’t come close to offsetting just ONE big splurge. Yet I know many people who justify their food choices by saying “I worked out today.” If weight loss is your goal, you have to keep these splurges in check; otherwise, you’ll be fighting a losing battle and never really get ahead in the calorie equation.
Exercise alone won’t change your body.
This is probably one of the biggest misconceptions I see. Most people believe that simply by exercising more, harder, or with some “magical” combination (think “muscle confusion”), they’ll get rock hard abs, chiseled arms, and toned legs. WRONG. Exercise will not change your body much at all unless you are also cutting calories. To really change your physique, you have to do both: watch your diet, consumer fewer calories than you burn, and exercise with a combination of cardio and strength training. Same goes for dieting. Cutting calories will result in some weight loss, but your body will not necessarily look more cut or toned if exercise isn’t also part of your plan.
You have to do it forever.
A lot of people don’t like to exercise, but they manage to stick with it in order to lose weight. Once they reach that goal, it becomes easier to slack off and then lose the habit entirely. But whether your goal is to lose weight, look better, improve your health, or just plain feel good, you’re only going to reach—and maintain—that result by continuing to exercise after you reach that goal. The benefits of exercise are quickly lost, too. You actually lose your strength and endurance far faster than it took to build up (unfair, right?). You can lose muscle strength in just a couple weeks off from pumping iron, and cardiovascular endurance? It starts diminishing when you rest just 2 days! This is why it’s important to find a routine that you enjoy and can stick with for the long haul.
Routine is the exercise enemy.
I love routine as much as the next person, but the gym is not the place for it. For the best results, you have to change up your workouts often. This is good because it can help prevent boredom so you’ll stick with it, but also prevent plateaus in your progress. For creatures of habit, or exercisers who lack creativity, it can be a real challenge. There are tons of ways you can mix up your workouts without becoming a gym rat or earning a personal training certification. The important thing is that you do it. Don’t let your workouts become stale, and don’t let your muscles get too conditioned to doing the same old thing for months on end. That’s why lifelong exercisers are always reaching for new goals and trying new things. Not only is it fun, but it challenges their bodies in new ways so they always stay fit—and have fun doing it.
“One workout may not undo a sedentary lifestyle.“ – Is probably my favorite truth. Did you read that right? My favorite T R U T H. && I am SUPER guilty of this. This is where my patience does NOT exist, but please everyone who is reading this and is struggling, understand that it will take TIME to see changes. The best way I can try and help is to advise you to track your progress. I hated taking pictures because I hated looking at myself, but measuring also works pretty well. I am not a firm believer in the scale because it doesn’t tell you what is muscle what is fat, and muscle weighs more than fat (FYI).. I also will google this picture I saw, where the girl was thinner but weighed more. Hmm.. give me a second. Okay so this isn’t the picture but you get what I am saying. If she didn’t take pictures and only saw the scale change (and saw she was HEAVIER), fuck I’d shit a brick. But this is what I mean. I use to be obsessed with the scale and that did nothing for me. I hope everyone truly reads through these truths and understand you have to WANT to change your lifestyle.. not just eating a salad once a week and thinking life’s unfair.
She won’t make a sound
Alone in this fight with herself and the fears whispering if she stands she’ll fall down
She wants to be found
The only way out is through everything she’s running from wants to give up and lie down.
So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
This is my brand new day starting now
I let go the things that weigh me down
And rob me of the beauty that’s to be found
And life all around
And this is my prayer without ceasing, the negative releasing
And as I rise above, my burden is easing
Okay so I stole this from someones blog. I think it was vegan blog… shoot, I may have it saved so I will link it back.. But here it is guy’s.. a guide to how you should grocery shop.. so LISTEN UP! IT IS NOT THAT HARD PEOPLE!
*THIS IS A LIFESTYLE (yes my competition diet is getting a little bit crazy, but I eat WHOLE ALL NATURAL foods..)*
You know you’re doing well if you spend about two thirds of your shopping time and money in the fresh produce section. You almost can’t go wrong here, as long as most of what you’re getting isn’t in packages.
Recently there’s been a strong anti-grain (and especially anti-wheat) vibe in the health community, due probably to the popularity of the Paleo diet. I’m still on board the grain train; but I agree with my friend and vegan dietitian Matt Ruscigno that while they’re good, we eat too many of them.
If you’re not careful, it’s easy to eat some form of wheat in every single one of your meals — bagels, cereal, pasta, bread, snacks, desserts. Don’t do that. As long as you don’t have a wheat allergy or Celiac’s, it’s fine to eat wheat (or ideally a good mix of grains), just not all the time.
There’s a lot of argument over what the best oil to use in your cooking is. One thing I’ve noticed with this blog is that no matter what oil I include in a recipe, someone will ask why I used that particular one, since it’s unhealthy. (Some people, like Dr. John McDougall, advocate eating no oil, since after all, it’s not a whole food.)
Personally, I use olive oil for salads and low-temperature cooking, and coconut or grapeseed oil for higher temperatures. Watch out for highly processed and heated oils, like most nondescript “vegetable oil.”
Whichever oil you choose, go easy on it. It’s not a whole food, it packs a lot of calories into a very small space, and it loses a lot of its nutritional value when heated.
As long as you’re consuming condiments in relatively small quantities, I see no problem with continuing to eat most of the ones you enjoy.
The big thing here is to check out the ingredients list, and make sure you recognize them all and that as many as possible are whole foods. Look out for high-fructose corn syrup, which is anything but whole, and appears in countless condiments. And since many will contain oils, look for those like what I’ve mentioned above.
Check the sodium content too, since prepared foods can be the source of a huge amount of salt. Preparing condiments yourself will help tremendously, so find recipes for salsa, hummus, baba ganoush, barbecue sauce, and others, and make them yourself.
And while we’re on the topic of salt, opt for sea salt over processed table salt, since it delivers many nutritious minerals other than sodium, and less sodium as a result. Vegan ultraman Rich Roll, in his excellent cookbook Jai Seed, helped me feel much better about loving salt and using so much in my food.
For snacks, the same principles apply: Look at the ingredients and make sure they’re whole foods, and watch out for salt and processed oils. Whole, raw or roasted nuts are the best thing you’ll find in the snack aisle.
Since I don’t eat meat and dairy, I’m not the one to tell you much about how to choose them. I believe you can be healthy and consume small amounts of them, but not the amounts and factory-farmed types that most Americans eat every day. (The idea of meat, especially fish, as a side dish at a few meals a week is one that would appeal to me if not for the ethical considerations.)
****** I LOVE RED MEAT! ANY kind of cut, lean ground turkey, fish (any kind, Idk because I hate fish), tuna, and don’t forget a whey protein, and eggs.
For dairy, keep in mind that skim or low-fat products are not whole foods. As Michael Pollan points out in his In Defense of Food, when the fat is removed from dairy products, your body’s ability to absorb the vitamins and nutrients in them decreases. In addition, when you take away the fat, you increase the relative portion of the food that contains casein, the protein that’s primarily blamed for dairy’s link to cancer in The China Study.
So if you’re going to eat dairy and you’re on a major calorie restriction, I’d recommend whole-fat versions over those that have the fat removed.
There’s almost nothing good in the drink aisle of the grocery store. (Coconut water and some natural sports drinks have their place, perhaps.)
Drink water. If that’s boring, add some lemon or lime juice. You’ll eventually get used to it.
For the newcomer or born-again healthy eater, I know of no better source of guidance than the aforementioned Michael Pollan. Pollan is not a vegetarian, and his whole-food-based, local, sustainable approach to eating is adaptable to a variety of ethical and health viewpoints.
What I find most appealing about Michael Pollan is the simplicity of his approach, and the resulting ease of applying his rules. Start with Food Rules for a quick understanding of all that he teaches, then move on to In Defense of Food for the “why’s.” A few of his most useful rules-of-thumb:
^^ Annoying? DON’T CARE. MEMORIZE THIS SHIT!
615-9pm Psych Class
930-1030pm Leg Workout
3pm Another Work Out
630-830pm Workout. lol. 😦
Btw bought a Timeflies ticket AWHILE ago, and its today and I am not going. 😦 too stressed out.. too sick and I really don’t want to miss class……(I’m such nerd).
So yes that means I skipped work today. I still feel like complete shit. I have NO idea what is wrong with me. I am use to the whole acid reflux thing but this is going on two SOLID days, and well see if its going to be day 3. I stayed up pretty late because I couldn’t get to sleep. So total of 4 work outs missed. No big deal. Tomorrow I am 4 weeks out. One solid month. Now its getting serious. I WILL do my best/hardest. I will make up for those lost workouts but how intense my work outs get. I am giving up carbonation (no energy drinks or my love of diet coke), just water tea and some propel (for at least the first two weeks). No more pre workout, and no fruits (only in the morning). Later (depending how I look) the list will continue on things I can’t eat lol. The last week/ week and 1/2 will be the hardest, distilled water, grapefruit, only chicken and tuna, and asparagus. WAMPPPPPPPP So that is a little update on everything. I have been super stressed with the deciding of the bikini, but its done and its being made and now that rock is off my shoulders. I just need to focus on feeling the workouts and spicing up the intensity a bit. ALOT of plyo work will be done, and stretching. For some reason I am enjoying stretching a WHOLE lot (mostly when my legs are sore and I have cardio to do, you feel the pull and it feels great)…. will add to this but its only 1130 and usually I don’t have time to explain a bit but here you go.. Tomorrow I will make everything more formal just in case people are following biweekly.

Today was sort of uneventful, but it was a great day for working out. I got 2 cardio sessions in =D However woke up did a pretty damn good arm work out, finished with cardio (45min). Went and ate, then played pool for an hour or 2. Ate again lol then finished hw while food digested, and finished another 45 min at about 630pm. Went to Jewel (picture not posted bc it didn’t load), but got MEAT to grill. And I grilled. All by myself. YUP! Went to bed at around 930pm, because I am such a good girl.
Hope everyone had a great weekend, if not make a better day tomorrow.
10am Got up laid around with Marley for a little bit…. Didn’t eat till about noon.
1230ish Made steak and eggs but gave Marley most of the eggs.. I didn’t care for them at much.. Had a few slices of pineapple as well.
Decided that I could NOT go to the gym until my blog was finished lol. But WordPress is being pretty gay.. said my post was published when people were already commenting on it… and the pictures were suddenly not there any more 😦 so now I feel all fucked up.
Doing Hamstrings/ Glutes today 🙂
120pm Stomach is fucking hurting again. No flax no nothing.. I think it may of been the pineapple.. what the fuck. :(:( not good.
OHHHHHH and forgot! Made tofu brownies last night.. they weren’t bad at all but I really want to make the black bean brownies now.. I have a feeling they might be a WHOLE lot better 🙂
I don’t know where I got this recipe from.. probably from CCK.. but I don’t really know…
(Makes 8 brownies)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup ww pastry flour (or white, or you can try spelt or gluten-free)
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup sweetener (see link, below, for lower-sugar version)
- 1.5 oz soft tofu or mori-nu firm or lite firm (about 1/8 box)
- 1/3 cup applesauce (use only 1/4 cup if using 3T oil)
- 1 to 3 T oil (I use coconut oil. Canola is ok too.)
- 2 T non-dairy milk
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- optional: you can throw in some chocolate chips
Combine dry ingredients, and mix very well. In a blender, combine wet ingredients and blend until smooth. (I use a Magic Bullet cup.) Pour wet over dry and stir, then pour into a 4×6 oiled pan (or double the recipe and use an 8×8). Cook for 12-18 minutes at 325 F. I’m not sure why this is the case, but these brownies seem to taste ten times sweeter if you don’t eat them for at least an hour after they come out of the oven!
My fudgey variation: (Highly recommended!) If you want them extremely fudgey– as in “so gooey you need a fork to eat them”—cook the batter for only 8-10 minutes. Then put the pan in the fridge to cool for at least a few hours.
Went to the gym around 330pm
3 sets of 90lbs and then added an outer 20lbs for the last set.
4x10reps 45lbs w 45lb calf raises
3 Sets each 10 each leg for the step up (BW)
3 Sets of 10 each leg (40lb BB)
5 Minutes total.
3 sets of 8 on 40lbs
Just chillen now.. Really have to study for a test I have Wednesday and need to check what room my new class is because it starts tomorrow :):)
Laundry, and cleaning room. Not to mention my sister left to go back to MN for school last night and we took a cute pic last night 🙂
Suppose to go to see a movie tonight.. but who knows.. I don’t mind staying in I really do want to study its only on chapter 14 and I actually enjoyed that chapter..AND THIS IS THE SECOND FREAKIN TIME IM TAKING PSYCH.
WHY DO ALL THE TEACHERS STINK THAT TEACH PSYCH??? Seriously.. out of ALLLLL fucking people my professor is a sexiest. no THE sexiest.. but against women sexiest and sometimes its ruthless. I literally shake my head sometimes when I sit in that class.. I am just trying to take it week by week with him.. too late to switch and I don’t think I would of anyways.. no big deal…. unless it gets really out of hand then Ill say something but so far its just annoying and I am not the only one whose noticed it… which isn’t good for him but whatever.
6pm– Tried to write my paper. I, right now, have 3 drafts. fml.
830pm-130am I left to go to a movie and didn’t get back till late. Only had a diet coke and some almonds on my way back home.
130-230am Had a tofu brownie and almond butter. Then a handful of flax cookies. lol.
3am Finally fell asleep.
