Day 2 of on track!

Today I did really well with following my calorie intake and exercising. I went rollerblading tonight and boy was it a humid evening! But by the lake there was a little breeze... a little haha!

BF: I had Cinnamon Oatmeal and 1 coffee
Lunch: Salad with chickpeas, cucumbers and 1 egg.
Snack: 4 Strawberries and a handful of almonds
Snack 2: (HA!) 2 timbits and a Tea. (ok I didn't need those timbits but a girl offered at work and I couldn't resist! It's OK I kept with my calorie intake!
Dinner: Grilled chicken Salad. YUM!
After work out snack: half a sandwich with turkey and spinach.

Total calories today: 1400!

And today my nuplus order came in! Thanks Sunny!
I will add these packets to my smoothies! For a daily dose of nutrition! Read about it here!

And the hat I ordered for my niece came in too! She was sleeping so I didnt want to disturb her so I placed it just on top of her head, how cute!!!!

Tomorrow I'm going to the doctor for a full check up. I havent been since the MC so I hope I get good news and hopefully she gives me the OK to try again soon! :)

Starbucks Smoothie Cup

Finally bought a Starbucks smoothie reusable cup! Now drinking my smoothies on the way to work will be much more convenient!

Months ago I was making smoothies, and not sure why I stopped, but I'm excited that I'm back on it! I usually make my smoothies like this (click here) But I also saw this one on a bloggy friends Facebook, and I cant wait to try it!

PB and BB smoothie recipe, yum! milk, 1 scoop of oatmeal, 1 tsp peanut butter, handful fresh blueberries, 1/2 frozen banana, ice.

(Sunny hope it's ok I copied and pasted to my blog)

I'm also trying to keep healthy snacks at hand. Like these almonds and pumpkin seeds.

Tomorrow is Friday and I have a very busy weekend ahead!

Hope you are all having a great week!

No more 30Day Shred

This weekend was fun, Saturday we helped my mom paint her house and Sunday husband and I went shopping in the afternoon. While we were out we treated ourselves to a Honeydew Bubble Tea and Chinese pineapple sweet bread. YUM! But not part of my diet plan of course hahha!

I decided not to incorporate the 30 day shred in my work outs any more. The jumping up and down made me feel sick more than once and it hurts the knees! It's a great work out and works well in toning. But I rather do my Gazelle and Ab lounge. :)

Today for lunch I had 12 whole grain crackers with Veggies. I'm really liking this combo and I buy all different types of veggie packages for variety.

This week, is week 2 of the Nuplus shake and Calli Tea cleanse. So far so good , and nuplus shakes are so easy to make, love that!

Weekly goals :)

* 5 Days a week Nuplus Shake for BF - 1 slice of toast for mid-morning snack.
* Only 1 medium coffee a day
* 5 days a week of home cooking, include many "green" veggies.
* Drink lots of water everyday! A MUST!
* Tracking calories on Iphone "my fitness pal app)
* 3 bite rule on sweets
* 3 days a week basement work out/ or jogging. Weather is getting nice!
* No fast food! (no burgers, no fries, no pop!) :)
* 5 days a week Calli Cleansing Tea

Feeling Lighter

This week I have been doing really well with drinking my Nuplus shakes in the morning. I drink it for Breakfast then at 10am I have 1 slice of multi grain toast and at 12pm I have my lunch. I am actually finding it easier to eat smaller meals during the day, rather than larger meals.

One day this week I had veggies and multi grain crackers for lunch. I really liked it. So I will do this more times next week :) I buy the frozen veggie packages and they taste great. I'll buy them this weekend and post more about it then.

I have not lost any pounds but my clothes fit better and I feel lighter too. Works for me! :)

This is just a random picture but I bought this laptop thingy (not sure what it's called) But it's great for working on your laptop on your lap. I got it at Ikea for $5 very useful and I recommend it :)

Happy Friday!! I am really looking forward to the weekend. Me, My sister and Brother and our better half's are doing an extreme makeover on my moms dining room and living room. I love redecorating and I just know she is going to love what we do with it. I will take before and after pics! (I just hope my back pain goes away by then, I'm in lots of pain today :( no fun!)

Sunny @ thatextra20pounds sent me many different recipes with the Nuplus packages. Nuplus has 14 Chinese all natural fruits and vegetables in a packet. Yesterday I didn't have any of the ingredients to make the yummy berry shake in the pic above, so I mixed the Nuplus package with milk and a squirt of nesquik for a chocolate milk and it tasted great! :) In the top picture I blended frozen berries with milk,1 yogurt pkg and 1 Nuplus pkg to make a shake for tomorrows BF. Sunny's recipe does not include the yogurt, and I think I will listen and leave it out, it makes it a little too frothy, sorry Sunny, I never listen ahaha!! :)

Another beautiful day!

Another beautiful Day! We woke this morning to soo much sunshine. So we decided to get our running shoes out and go for a morning jog. Oh I miss jogging outdoors and I'm so happy the weather is getting better. Whoohoo!

At the end of a trail near our house there is a little park so we stopped to rest ahahh!

This weekend my healthy eating sorta went out the window, we ate fast food, chips and dip and Candy and chocolate!!...

BUT I did have time to make a delicious dinner. Shrimp Pasta with asparagus (altho my asparagus looks sad ahahh) I rarely make pasta, I leave the pasta eating for when I visit my grandma, but I had all the tasty ingredients for this shrimp pasta and it came out really good:)

Also, I've been talking about some products that I ordered from a bloggy friend, I tried the Calli Tea last night and it was really good and soothing. It's a cleansing tea so I am looking forward to drinking 1 cup a day ;)

Everyday for Breakfast this week I decided to forgo the coffee and toast for a Nuplus Shake.
I'm looking forward to the food change this week and really hoping I could see some pounds drop. I will write about my weekly goals tomorrow :)

Beautiful day!

Today was a gorgeous spring feeling day in Toronto. It was warm and bright and I think everyone was feeling great today!

We went to visit my grandparents for lunch. I ate a fairly large plate of pasta and meat balls haha. No such thing as a dieting with the grandparents, they would not have it ahahh
That's me and my mom.

After we left my grandparents we headed to the book store. I read about a book called Women, Food and God and wanted to get it, but the mall was full of people and so I think I will just order that book on Amazon tonight. Have any of you read that book?
Friday I received some products I ordered from a Bloggy friend. Nuplus shake and Calli Tea. I am going to make a new plan for next week and switch my morning coffee and BF to a Nuplus Shake. I will blog about that tomorrow. I'm excited!

Hope you all are having a great weekend!!

30 day shred friends...

30 day shred friends. How are you liking it? So I've been doing it for 2 months now, for an average of twice a week. Some times only once a week. My issues: If I have anything in my tummy, the jumping around makes me sick! If I'm on one of those off days where energy is low, the up and down movements make me dizzy! Are you having these same issues? I've been slowly moving away from the DVD and doing other exercises. Let me know your thoughts :)

For tomorrows work day snack I added a lot of cucumbers, carrots and cantaloupe. :)

I'm really trying to get healthy on the inside. I started taking a multi vitamin and I have my B12 shots every Wednesday. I also ordered from a blogger friends store. I'm ordering a nuplus powder full of nutrients to make healthy shakes and a Tea called Calli Tea for cleansing. Read more on her Site here.

Let's get healthy! ;)
