This is what "love" looks like …

YEP…I’m a lucky Gal to have someone LOVE me this much! :/ This will cost me a 500.00 deductible because The One Who Loves Me didn’t think about maybe getting insurance before declaring that undying love.
I hate stupid fucking people.

Sore!

Posting from my phone because I’m too tired to go to the computer.  Not a bad sore…one that tells me I’m making progress.
🙂
I have been using 2 pound walking weights to replace the T3 weights (1 pound each) and the Amped Bar (3 pounds total)…best investment ever! The extra pound makes a difference with resistance and the workout.

I suggest to ANYONE doing a home workout (cardio type,Kickboxing, walk away the pounds) to invest in some hand weights. I find the walking weights are the best.  Comfy! The added strap helps. They also come in 1 pounders too.
Now…the results of my 3 day Meat and Egg Fast (the name is misleading …it is actually protein and eggs) I am in deep ketosis. The fast takes away the hunger and it makes the belly flatter.  I love having the option of eating the way I do. Now I can restart Induction.  I’m in full fat burning mode now!
I’m exhausted now…just wanted to check in. I’m hoping I will start seeing better results soon. I have been working really hard with exercising.  It feels good to do something for ME for a change.  Saving myself for once. 🙂
The birthday is coming up next month …43! I’m planning on not looking my age for as long as possible.
Later!

Where has Rob Gone??

I’m still here! I was just distracted for a bit. I started my exercise again and have been doing my Meat and Egg Fast to jump start me back into fat burning mode. It is recommended that you only do this for three days. It suppresses the appetite and places you into ketosis. Ketosis is NOT a bad thing…it is when your body uses fat for fuel instead of carbohydrates. Most of the weight loss from ketosis comes from the belly. Since I am an Apple Type and more prone to developing Diabetes…I am loving the results. I will be posting the fast instructions next. ONCE AGAIN…ONLY THREE DAYS!
I’m still alive and kicking. Will be posting workouts and recipes really soon.
Later!

Kate Beckensale…

Eat a sandwich or six. Please. 🙂
Just always wondered how these actresses can look the way that they do.
Sigh. Gonna keep up with my poor people dieting and exercise. 
So far Underworld is amazing. Creepshow brought back memories.  11-11-11…dumbest movie in all captivity. I figured that one out before the…*gasp* surprise ending.
More to come…

Having A Lazy Evening …

On the list for tonight :
Creepshow (the Roach one is ugh)
Underworld Awakening
The Dead (Zombies)
The Dead vs Unread (Zombies vs Vampires)- epic!
11-11-11…(not sure what that is about)
I plan on the next 24 hours of being a Woosa period. I do enjoy my extra day off. It is great to be able to just…relax. I used to just sit around and worry about all types of things. It makes you older. Not planning on doing that anytime soon.
Finally loving myself after all these years feels amazing.
Now to commence with the scaring the heck outta myself.
So cool!

Big Mac Pie?? Really?

LINNY’S BIG MAC IN A BOWL

Okay…I added this video because as a low carber I understand how it is to have a yen for something. 🙂 I would suggest you go to the website for the recipe and make adjustments to the seasoning accordingly. Sometimes the sodium levels are too high.
OR…
If are truely looking for some Mickey D’s and don’t have the patience to do all of this to qwell the Big Mac Attack …get two Big Macs and remove all bread and put it in a bowl. 
There is your Instant BIg Mac in a Bowl! 🙂 🙂

Had My Blowup…

…that is why I have this mental dumping ground. If it wasn’t for this blog sometimes I am sure I would have been in a straitjacket by now.
If you are sensitive to rantings please do not read the last two posts. This is my little place of Happy. Sometimes you just have to get it out to maintain your Chi.
I just added my Sister In Law’s blog All in a Day’s Work to my sidebar. Check it out.
I’m back to being a Pretty Pretty Precious Princess. No more ugliness…so unnecessary
