Getting There

So this business venture is a lot harder than I thought it would be. I love it because it is what I am very passionate about right now. It is hard to get people to see that this is worth spending money on. I just can't believe the amount of money people will spend on purses, makeup, clothes, cigarettes, and other unhealthy things but when it comes to getting healthy and taking quality supplements they look at me like I have two heads and tell me how expensive the products are. I get it, the products are on the highest end of quality so they will cost more. Just like a woman will spend 300$ on a Coach purse (not that I am putting down people who own a Coach purse because I do own one) will justify spending that money (just like I did) because of the quality. Same thing here, except it is your health and wellness which I value a whole lot more than the object that holds my keys and wallet. I introduced the product to a friend of mine recently and she loved it but said her husband wouldn't let her order it because it has a small amount of artificial sweetners in it, and said it to me right before she went to have a cigarette...huh? Anyway, I will just keep plugging away because I believe in the product and I believe in the company!

I Feel Awesome!

I have closed the last three nights at work, whick means I haven't gotten to bed before one o clock in the morning. I don't do well with less than eight hours of sleep and even then closing takes a toll on my body after doing it so many days in a row. So last night, again, I got to sleep at about 1 or so and was up at about 8. I was so tired but decided that the only think that would help me was a trip to the gym. I downed a Slam and went to a spin class. I tell you, I felt like I could exercise for hours. It makes me feel so good mentally and physically. If you have a hard time making it to the gym after a late night, I recommend a Slam. Even if you got a great nights rest, it just gives you the energy you need to get through your work out at a great intensity! It does have caffeine in it, but also some very good vitamins that give you that mental boost!

That's Gonna Kill You

It seems that lately, someone is trying to tell me that some of the things I ingest into my body is gonna kill me. I don't get it, I work out, I (for the most part) eat healthy. But if someone sees me drinking a diet coke they want to tell me how bad the aspartame is for me. I know how bad the aspartame is for me, that is why I don't drink it every single day. The other day when someone had noticed that I have been tanning, told me how bad tanning was for me. I know that when you take these things out of control they can be bad for you. I find myself trying to defend these so called "bad decisions" all the time. Moderation people. I know the meaning of moderation. I don't drink diet coke every day, and I don't tan everyday. I just want to enjoy a diet coke here and there and I love the feeling of tanning, especially in the winter but only do it three times a week max. I think sometimes some people just want to put their two cents in...

Weight Frustrations

Ok, so I know this post could come out totally wrong but will try and get my frustrations out without sounding hung up on myself. When I started this health kick I was about 123 pounds (I know that is not fat but was very soft). I am know between 109 and 111. I have worked very hard to get to this point and must say I am very proud of myself. So when someone asks me "How do you stay (or how did you get) so skinny?" they look at me for some magic answer. Like they want me to tell them about some secret pill. The only secret is that I work out and eat healthy. Isn't that what we are supposed to do? I don't know why people even ask when they know the answer, they just want to believe that there has to be some other way to do it. It is not hard, it just takes lots and lots of discipline. I feel as though all the work I have put into this is discounted and doesn't really count because of the way I did it. Maybe I should just start changing my answer to this question....
