So…it’s a beautiful September afternoon here in the Mile High City

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen!

I’ve been working hard at everything lately, even though I’ve been sick for a week!  I’ve been eating healthy and keeping my food journal, as well as doing some meal prep.  I’ve been getting in my workouts, not as many as I would ideally like but I’m getting there.  I’ve been making appointments and using my upline.  I’ve been doing my reading and staying accountable.  I’m looking to keep my eye on the prize…My Love getting out of the dreaded casino.

We went to the Red Sox game last week, although here it would’ve been called the Rockies game 🙂  It was awesome!!  THEY WON!!!  We haven’t been to a game all year, it was the last home game of the season.  We went just in time!  Luckily we’ve been to 2 Red Sox games this year.  One in Boston, one in Denver.  We’re cool like that 🙂

I’m not looking at the scale yet, I hate that thing.  I will say that my face looks a TINY bit thinner.  I think I got sick as I got the nasties out of me 🙂  I feel much better now!  I’m going to to back the the actual gym Wednesday.  I go to 24 Hour Fitness and they’ve remodelled.  I’m looking forward to seeing it.  I’m going to do weight training in with my cardio, I’m so excited!!!  I’ve missed it!   

We have a date day this week!!!  I love date day with My Love!  I’m hoping to take some pictures, for you and my Instagram.  I’m liking IG.  Do you all have IG accounts?  May I follow you?

Leave me a comment so I know you were here!!!  I’ll follow you back!

And you see…..it’s all about accountability

So, after a couple of conference calls today, one yesterday and a health coach phone session tomorrow I should be all accounted for.  Let me explain:

     I want to build my business and not lose track of the prize of My Love leaving the casino.  I will work every day to hold up my end of my business.  Go out, prospect, make appointments, show the deal and sign them up. BOOM! 🙂 Repeat!  In addition to that I have signed up for a Mastermind accountability group.  We have weekly reading goals and a score card with a points system to achieve the amount of success we desire.  Sounds good right?  Of course it is.  I’m excited!

     Simultaneously, I am working with a Health Coach.  (It’s My Love’s sister, she needs guinea pigs)  I have my BIG goals, and broken down into doable weekly goals for healthy eating and working out.  I have a hefty weight loss goal.  I’m hoping to incorporate weight training back into my fitness routine next week.  My Love will be making his return to CrossFit, he’s quite excited!  Oh, I’m supposed to be keeping a food journal too…oops

I feel quite over whelmed but week one is done…My book just got here for my Mastermind group, I understand the points system better for the score card and all conference calls were successful!  Time to dial it in and do better for next week.  I’m in!

That being said…tomorrow is My Love’s “Friday”!  He will be off Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  We’re going to the Red Sox game on Wednesday (I suppose since it’s in Denver, people would call it a Rockies game, details) and I’m pretty excited about it!

I’m hoping since I have to be accountable in a few areas already, that I’ll become more likely to be accountable in all areas…Maybe I’m getting ahead of myself 🙂  

After my cardio today I rewarded myself with a first attempt at a smoothie.  It was oj, banana and strawberry…..yummmmm.  I had a taco salad for dinner and it was surprisingly good! I’m hoping to get more efficient in healthy meal prep.  Do any of you have any tips or tricks to keep a healthy life and healthy choices on the easier side?  

Leave me a comment with your blog so I can follow you!!  Don’t be shy!

I got the crap end of a 50/50 shot

So I’m on a rampage and the only safe place for me to blow my top is here. My sister is mad because our family seems to think we have a communicable disease. Sister and I are fundraisers for Huntingtons Disease. It is a terrible terrible disease and we are trying like hell to save our lives. We don’t want anyone to feel the way we do. To have to watch your loved ones literally disappear before your eyes. Shakes like Parkinson’s, memory loss like Alzheimer’s and motor loss like Lou Gehrig.
Our grandmother used to be a nurse and would play Barbies with us. Now she has no idea what’s going on and eats thru a tube.
My Dad used to take us bowling and have lunches of McDonalds on weekends. Now he has had his drivers license taken away due to his deterioration.
It’s AWFUL!!!!!
That being said we walk for Hope for HD every year. For the first time I’m working with the Rocky Mountain Chapter and they’re great!!! I don’t know who will see this but if you can, please, any donation will help. Change in your car seats, money under your mattress ;). All help is greatly greatly appreciated!!
We reached out to our cousins and 2 out of 9 even responded. The other 7 are like statues. If I knew my cousins had genetics for a terminal disease PLEASE BELIEVE that I would move hell and high water to fix it, any way that I could so they wouldn’t hurt. That’s supposed to be what blood does. Not ignore the whole thing, that’s ignorant.
So now we feel like 2nd class citizens. It’s not doing much for family morale that’s for damn sure.
My friends care, My Love cares, My Loves family is better than mine in dealing with all of this.
THAT’S BULLSHIT!!!
So now I love his family more than mine, I’m very very thankful to have support, just surprised where the rock stars came from.
I am hurt. I am angry. I am hopeful.
I am raising funds to save our family 🙂
