Journal Entry – April 7 through 11

April 7 thru 11 – Days 92 thru 96

A Better Week

This week flew by!!  I am happy to report that after the challenge with my workouts last week, I am stronger and surprised by how much better I am already doing the workouts!  I’m not doing them perfectly, but I’m better.  This $h!% is tough but I’m so glad I am seeing improvement.

Too Critical 

Over the past week I have been taking pictures and videos and I second, and third guess what I should put up. Don’t get me wrong, I have made progress, but I sometimes forget how far I have come, but also how far I have left to go — even though I write this blog every week. IMG_0215before and after

I see results, but I have to remember that I am still a heavy chic and only time and constancy will make the difference.  I think we are all critical of ourselves, however, I have to be kinder and more patient and look at the pictures from a “what has improved” perspective instead of an “I am still not there” one.

My Reward for Completing  T25 Alpha and Beta Cycle

Look at my T-shirt!  It reminds me of how far I have come and the progress I have made.  Yay! 10171132_10152342815085419_834817338_n

Yummy Hummus

I love Hummus and found a great recipe when I was in Suffern a few weekends ago.  For more recipes, go to http://chopculinaryentertainment.com.  Angela Rivera helped me make a humus garden (hummus was the “dirt” and tiny pieces of broccoli, carrots and cucumber were the flowers) which was so cute!  The below is taken from her pamphlet with the exception of my commentary in parentheses.

Classic Hummus

16 oz Can chick peas

¼ cup Water

3 Tsp Tahini

1 clove garlic (I use more but don’t speak to me afterward…haha)

½ tsp salt

1 Tbsp cumin

¼ cup olive oil (use a good one because it does really make a difference in taste)

Preparation: Drain chickpeas and rinse well.  Combine all ingredients except olive oil in a food processor.  Blend well and slowly add olive oil.  Blend for 2-3 minutes or until completely smooth.  Serve with fresh vegetables or use as a condiment for wraps, sandwiches or salads.  Enjoy!

Have a super weekend!

    • Aww! Thanks! You are going to feel so good when you get it! I need to keep it up and really make this a lifestyle change. I feel like it is now, but it has to really get rooted down. That will help me relax and really appreciate the journey. You keep it up too! You are getting good results. Looking forward to a photo soon 😉
