After 20 mins of arguing with myself, I mustered up enough energy to head to the gym this morning, bright and early. I realized as I walked into the fitness center that I should be visiting the gym more often than I currently do. Dont get me wrong, I work out to DVD's at home all the time, but in order to get a great cardio workout, the gym is where I need to be. This time, I decided not to base my workout on "miles walked" or "calories burned"... I just hopped on and worked up a nice sweat! Many things have been bothering me lately, none of which I will bore you with, but all the stress has put quite a damper on my spirit, and I've been super exhausted for the past week now--- and I let out all my frustration on the treadmill and elliptical machine! It felt amazing to take time to myself and clear my head, and also a great way to start my work week as well. Oh-- and I worked out while watching SCHOOL OF ROCK---way fun! (I strongly believe that we get a much better workout based on the music we listen to while exercising.....I'll talk more about it in another blog...I just had an idea...stay tuned for more! HaHa)

My nails are growing super fast and are no longer chipping and breaking! How wonderful is that? My nails havent been this strong since I was a teenager. I love it <3 All thanks to eating healthier and adding lots of proteing to my diet.

So apparently, when you are on a diet/exercise program and you DONT EAT ENOUGH, your body goes into starvation mode and holds onto the fat---perhaps why my scale wont budge. And as a person who has tried to lose weight umpteen times, you'd think I would know that, but I didnt. I just read it on fitwatch.com and had an "ah-ha!" moment.

Oh, how I miss milk. But one serving of this delicious beverage (1% MILK) is 13g of sugar. I love milk, but apparently it doesnt always "do the body good". I understand it's healthy for bones and teeth, but just because we need calcium doesnt mean we have to get it from milk. Veggies have calcium, cheese has calcium, and if all else fails, vitamins have a good source of calcium as well.
