A little of everything

There are a couple things I wanted to touch on today- first, I came across this website last night and was completely blown away. I cannot believe that this even exists and to think there are tons more like it is so sad. It is a website basically about how to be anorexic, tips and tricks to hiding it etc. I wish these people were educated on what they are doing to their bodies and what effect it will have on them long term. I wish even more that they wouldn't share and encourage their bad habits. Kind of a downer, but I just thought I would share- it is important that these issues are addressed.

Sometimes we all need this reminder
For those of you following my testing of Apple Cider Vinegar and Kombucha- I have an update. After using the Kombucha instead of ACV before each meal for one week, ACV is victorious! My stomach was unfortunately back to its old ways last week; bloated after every meal. I say unfortunate because the Kombucha is SO good, I'm sure I will continue to drink it every one and a while for its good taste and other health benefits, but looks like the ACV is here to stay! I'm so glad that I have found something that helps, I was getting very fed up with my stomach.

Lastly, this coming Saturday marks 4 weeks until my vacation! It cannot come soon enough, but at the same time I want as much time as possible to keep getting into shape. After 4 weeks of clean eating, very minimal cheats, and working out with a plan I am definitely seeing a difference. The changes are slow, but they're there. Over the next couple weeks I'm going to start incorporating cardio back into my workouts and hopefully get those abs to show by the time my vacation comes! Although that is my goal, I feel so much better both physically and mentally since I have started this new lifestyle, which makes it all worth it, regardless of the way I turn out physically. I am positive that even after my vacation I will continue eating/living this way, as it is now what makes me feel the best, and who doesn't want to feel their best all the time!

Oh ya- if you haven't already, please "like" my facebook page for additional recipe ideas, information, and motivation!

  1. I bought ACV 2 months ago ... it might help a lot but it's sooo disgusting. I hate the smell and the taste of it :S

  2. Do you still use the ACV today, or was it just a temporary thing?? I went to this "health bootcamp" held at a local chiropractor and he suggested taking an oz of ACV after heavy meals b/c it help digestion.
    I'm so like you...my fiance use to think I cheated alot with my food b/c my tummy would bloat so much it looked like I was prego and it would last a couple days. I'm definately going to try the AVC before meals :)
