Happy Weekend, my Fabulous Followers!

Well, it is official - I went off the rails completely yesterday. I offered to take my friend out for her birthday. I chose four different places for her to choose from where I could stay on track; but she wanted Italian.

I had zero restraint and ate garlic bread and pasta! These are total inflammatory foods so today my joints hurt, my head aches and my belly is bloated! WHEAT is the DEVIL for me

THANK GOODNESS, I am going to the gym and can sweat it out!

Happy "almost" weekend, my Fabulous Followers!

I am logging consistently again - and including the good, bad and ugly. Exercise is going well - nutrition choices are slowly improving.

HELL WEEK at the gym is coming! Attend SIX workouts within an eight day period and get a T-Shirt! This is my FOURTH year doing Hell Week at Orange Theory Fitness. The workouts are much more intense and difficult during Hell Week, so wish me luck!

PHOTO is the glorious trees in front of my house!

Happy new week, my Fabulous Followers!

I have been wandering aimlessly for at least one month or longer...fortunately I continue my workouts four to five days per week. I have been eating lots of grain/dairy carbs which bloat me and cause weight gain for sure - #muststop!

I want to go back to my basics - keto, paleo, low carb works best for me, and continue to log everything even if it is not the best choice. I want to better hold myself accountable for my choices so logging is essential!

Besides the annual HELL WEEK is starting at the gym soon!!!!

Happy new week, my Fabulous Followers!

I fell off the grid a few days while I was in San Diego for my youngest niece's wedding! I went to the local Orange Theory Fitness while there, had some fun and enjoyed the wedding and reception.

I wore a nice dress to the ceremony - but everyone dressed down for the Fiesta that followed - so I am in my favorite summer clothes in this photo!

Greetings my Fabulous Followers!

Yesterday I mentioned Orange Theory Fitness and got a few questions. I love the place - it is an international chain of fitness studios. You wear a heart rate monitor while doing interval training as a group coached by fitness trainer. Rowing machines, weight lifting, treadmill or elliptical, etc. Here's a link you can copy and paste in your browser if interested:

No, I do not work for them - LOL
