Healthy Diary Logs Begin!…Weight Loss & Exercise

Well this has been a journey in the making for a long time and I’ve finally started it the way I want to and no one else. I’m not following anyone’s plans or schedule, I’m doing what I think is best for me through trial and error.

I’ve started by changing my whole grocery list and purchased fruits, veges, granola and poultry, salmon. So in my Healthy Journey section it will be purely updated probably everyday with how my day goes, my schedule..everything I do and eat through out the day. I’m doing this so I can see my patterns and see for myself, what I need to change and tweak. It also keeps me on track and busy which will probably prevent me from being bored.

My goal really is to live my life eating healthy. I don’t want the junk food anymore, I want to go to the doctors in confident and hear them say,”You’re as healthy as an ox.” I’d  also like to go to the doctors and show up with some weight loss. So wish me luck and pray for me :).

I went over my calorie goal of 1200 by 500 calories. What I did wrong…i snacked on sunflower seeds all day. Then I gave up on eating healthy…the only thing I did healthy was drink water and that is only because there were no Dr. Peppers around for me to drink because I was surely looking for some!

If you want to view more of my diary I’m using

Also if you are looking for workout videos or leslie sansone videos, I’m uploading them on my page on dailymoition:

Notes for next time to myself:

I only took 3 bites of my tuna sandwhich, I will eat the rest tomorrow. Find a healthier cheese to eat. The brand I am using its 3/4 of fat and 1/4 protein. Put sunflower seeds away in cabinet instead of keeping them near me to avoid over eatting. Brush my teeth, drink some water or eat something healthy when I want to snack.


Good & Bad News: Working Out, yes! Eating Healthy, no!

395222_10151080096872956_1667202600_nThis is something I feel very passionate about and sensitive toward because I am trying…I’m having a VERY hard time eating healthy. It’s bad enough I find it hard to avoid those, oh so good junk foods. The other day I attempted, I started out good making myself some eggs with a baked potatoes but then I didn’t know what else to cook because my plan was to eat tuna sandwiches with cheese but I forgot the cheese (I bought them today :D)! SO I began snacking! Then on top of that the people in my household make it even harder for me to eat healthy. I went out and spent $40 on some food that I planned to prep and cook. I bought some salmon, tomatoes, herbs (rosemary, basil, thyme), carrots, potatoes, almond milk (which im scared to drink lol), chicken breast, cheese, etc. I bought all of these things because I planned on cooking myself something healthy while learning more techniques and ways to cook. So anyway my sister who likes to throw away everything she didn’t by, goes through the fridge and decides, “Oh I didn’t buy these herbs and they look old, so let me throw them away!” Then my mom goes in the freezer and says,”Oh! Salmon! Let me waste my time and FRY all of them and leave only 2 left because everyone likes fry food! That’s what they were obviously purchased for!” Then my sister goes in the freezer again,”Oh! Salmon! I didn’t buy them nor do I contribute anything to the household especially money and I don’t give a flying fuck! Let me take the last 2 salmons and cook them because I’m on a imaginary diet that I keep ruining every 30 minutes junk food…yay me!”

That’s what keeps happening to me every week lol….

As for my workouts..I feel very confident in them. I do cardio only. I never liked weights or the idea of them plus I do not wish to spend money on them. I know for sure with working out…it’s just like my hair journey, you have to find what works best for you. Not everything people usually do will work for you. My daily workout will revolve around Leslie Sansone Dvds…I downloaded them for free and I bought one just for the abs belt lol. With Leslie Sansone, I lost weight doing her dvd’s last year, her workouts that I use consist of walking at home…I forgot the positive results I got from her other than losing weight. One negative was that my butt began to look flat. So after every workout I did of Leslie Sansone, I did squats and leg sit ups…i saw some results but I realized that I am not strong in squats. I would do only 20 day/night squats a day and one week i over did the squats and i couldn’t walk straight for 2 weeks nor could I work out. So from then on I limited my squats to 5 – 10 a in the morning and 5 -10 at night because…I’m scared that will happen again.

My workout now:

-20 to 40 Wall push ups (I’ve never been good at  actual push ups but after doing these for a while..I will.)

-40 to 60 Standing Trunk Twist  (video:

– 5 to 10 Squats

-15 Leg touches or sit ups

-Rotated workouts with Leslie Sansone throughout the week: 15minute workout (TODAY) = 1 mile walk, 30 minute work out = 2 mile walk, 45 minute workout = 3 mile walk….the 3 mile walk is NO joke! If you are not prepared or fit prior to it, you will feel some soreness after words.

If anyone wants to join in on the leslie sansone videos I will be uploading the ones I use on dailymotion so join and subscribe! I will be uploading other videos too from youtube..I’ll credit them but I just would like to have some good easy workouts just in case anyone else wants to join me 😀



I Think I’m Going To Start Working Out

So the semester is coming to  an end…I have nothing to do right now…so why not? I think I’m going to start my workout phase now. Leslie Sansone is my best friend! I lost 15 pounds last year working out to her miles at home work outs along with squats and situps.

So here I go again! Hopefully I can stick to it since I skipped doing it before Thanksgiving! I’m not going to say my plans for working out until I have actually worked out more than once this week…I don’t want to jinx it! So fingers crossed!
