Extreme Fridge Makeover and Video Update!

Day 14.

Today's weight is 232.  Spent last night swimming for an hour and will start doing it every night.  I so much prefer being in a pool rather then walking.

Here is a video update I did on Friday night... sorry that I am just now getting to it today to post.

Take care! http://youtu.be/ELn9QTblAr8

Day 5 & 6 & 7-  The Highs & Lows-  The Ugly Monster Shows up Day 6

 Well... I have to say that I have been feeling great since being on the Visalus Shakes.  The pain that I have had in my arms for over 15 years has been gone for several weeks. Now I know that Visalus is not a cure for Multiple Sclerosis and I was reminded of that on Saturday when MS kicked my butt with fatigue.  But I have to say that all the other days that I have been feeling good... even great  has been totally worth it. 

Think about what 15+ years of constant pain looks like. Think about what it is like to have a pain every single day.  Some of the days worse then others.  Sleepless nights, crying myself to sleep, drugs, and depression was a result of my pain.  And here... I have had 40 something days of being pain free.  40 something nights where I fell asleep happy and woke up rested.  40 something days of laughter and quality time with my kids.  More then anything I have so much hope that I am goin…

Day 3 & 4 Updates, More Goals, and My Measurements.... O MY!

I am behind a day on my blog so I thought I would just combine yesterday and today. Yesterday I posted but it was for Day 2! Anyways! I woke up this morning with a lot of soreness in my body! I almost forgot what it felt like to try and get back into shape. I mean you are pretty much waking up every muscle in your body, which mine have been dormant for over a year now. The sad part is that I have not even started working out with weights or doing any sort of actual training. I have just been walking. Ayayayayayay! I am in for it! Since starting on this nutritional journey with Visalus over a month ago, I have felt pretty good. The last time I had this much energy was 100 lbs ago. Between working and running my kids around, I would come home and literally check out. I mean sit on the couch and stare at the wall! My house always looked like a tornado hit it and I would be terrified if someone tried to come over. Now, anyone can pop by my house and I will not panic... b…

Day 2-
Well Day 2 has come and gone! I had my two shakes and enjoyed an early dinner with the boys before we went off to practice. Part of my 90 Day Challenge Transformation includes me identifying the triggers that would always lead to me making bad decisions with food. One of those triggers is cooking for my two sons. I always thought I had to make for them something delicious and then make me something healthy. Just having that other food around, I would always taste it and eventually have a serving of "whatever". So now I have the fun challenge of preparing dinners for us that we can all enjoy but that will also still be healthy.  So for dinner I made the boys the same thing I made for myself.... just made a few small changes to my plate.


Since I walk the track while the boys are at football camp, we end up eating again after practice. Last night I made them grilled cheese sandwiches on rye bread... and they ate every bite. As for myself, I just snacked on st…
