Cuban Celebration

This past Sunday was the annual Cuban Day Parade in North Bergen, NJ.  My daughter's dance school was participating in this parade, so at 12:30 pm we showed up at 79th street & Bergenline to meet everyone.  The parade would start at 2pm and we would have to walk down to 43rd street.

We waited & waited, and finally, it was time to get set up and the parade was getting ready to start.

It was a long walk, and after I already jogged 3 miles earlier that morning, this really felt like a long walk but we made it!  It was fun, the music was great and our girls were amazing.

3 Day Detox Results

Hey everyone - I was supposed to get this up last night but distractions! LOL, lots of distractions and other things that had to get done.

So now that I can sit down and write, here is my quick update on my experience and results.

I ordered the 3-Day Refresh from Beachbody and decided to start it on Monday.

The guide is very easy to follow.  Now I highly recommend being prepared.

Read through the guide, choose the foods you will eat and go shopping.
There are recipes for the dinners you will be eating, but they are super easy.
Also - drink lots & lots of water.  I aimed for a gallon a day, so that's what I would recommend but you should at least drink half your body weight in ounces each day.

You will also be eating something small throughout the day - I'd say it was around every 3 hours or so.

I started each day with 8-10 ounces of water.

About an hour later I would drink my shakeology and add a fruit to it.

A couple hours later (1-2) I drank the fiber sweep.  When I got …

Fresh Start

Hey everyone.  New week and I'm still on my fitness and nutrition journey.  Last week was so-so but had a few cheat meals during the week.  I tried but gave in more than once.

I did work out a few days during the week, and as always I felt better after I was done.

My Orange flavor recover is the best!!!

I also stayed consistent with my shakeology for breakfast.  I try new recipes every once in a while, but always go back to the usual.

I was also really good about prepping my snacks for work.

Things always start out great but then there's the midweek pizza order, and I get off my plan. That's ok though - its life.  I just get back on my plan for the next meal.
I follow many people on Instagram, but 2 of my faves are Joel & Breanne Freeman.  They are great and have many ideas to share.  So when they went on Instagram talking about this peanut butter, I went and bought a jar of peanut butter & almond butter.

and I'm soooooo glad I did. It is the best Peanut/almond…

Life Happens

Well, another week has gone by.  Hope all my ladies had a wonderful Mother's Day!  I enjoyed a full weekend of Mother's Day, although my chores & work didn't stop.

So last week didn't go as planned.  My daughter was out of school for 3 days, and when this happens I go into work earlier.  Right now, I don't leave home until 8AM but when I go in earlier, I leave home at 6:45 AM.  This affects my workout schedule because I would have to wake up at 4AM instead of 5:30AM, which is already a struggle.  So, I thought I would just work out after work.  HA! What a joke!  I can't even believe I thought that would happen.  3 days went by and I did NADA!!

What I did do, was eat!  I was so unprepared last week.  I ran out of chicken, so I had no prepped meals.  I tried to order as healthy as I could at work, but then our dinners were absolutely horrible choices.

Then comes the weekend - starting with Date Night.  We haven't had a date night in a while so I was look…
