Sparkly Green Earrings

Posted by in Family, Walking with Jesus

You must check out the book “Sparkly Green Earrings” by Melanie Shankle! It is not secret that I enjoy reading. I enjoy reading almost as much as I enjoy photography (okay, maybe I enjoy it more because there is less paperwork involved!). A week or so ago “Sparkly Green Earrings” was free for the day. I have hundreds (maybe thousands) of free books on my Kindle app on my iPhone. Since it was free and also “Christian.” I ‘bought’ it. I’ll be honest, a lot of the free books are…read more

Day 12

Posted by in Shaping Up, Uncategorized

Better day – rocking along keeping with the plan a lot better. On Monday, I had done two workouts. It takes a lot out of me. On Tuesday, I did the easier class – it is more balance and resistance. My arms are really shaping up! I wish my legs would! I need to measure. I feel smaller. Surely that counts for something! 🙂 Supper was steak and homemade baked sweet potato chips with some pineapple for dessert. I am almost back to where I was last week – soon!…read more

Days 9-11

Posted by in Shaping Up, Uncategorized

Saturday – I had a shake. I drank the energy drink. That was the only thing I did Isagenix on that day! We went out of town for graduation. I snacked on some not great snacks. For lunch, I gave half of my meat away, but I ate mashed potatoes and some chips. By the time dinner came around, I was tired and that always makes me eat. It was 9 pm, and we went to eat Mexican food. I really wasn’t hungry until we go in there. Then, I…read more

Day 8 Isagenix – 30 Day

Posted by in Shaping Up, Uncategorized

Day 8 was much better as to how I felt. I didn’t do as well sticking to the program, but that purely selfishness on my part. I let me coach know what had happened the two days before. We were able to get in on a conference call with their doctor. I told her everything that had happened. She suggested trying a daily cleanse instead of doing the whole day cleanse. We are going to give that a shot. I had a shake before the gym and  a shake after…read more

day 7 – Isagenix 30 Day Challenge

Posted by in Shaping Up, Uncategorized

Day 7 was interesting. I got up, weighed. Down .2. Not bad! That is a total of 8.2 pounds. I had my morning shot and a shake. I didn’t feel right. It was quite as bad as the day before, but I was weak and shaky. Just not right. I took my blood pressure. It was good. I didn’t feel like going to the gym – which seldom happens. I went to Sam’s. By the time I got there, I felt worse. I had heart burn. My left arm hurt…read more

Day 6 on Isagenix 30 Day Challenge

Posted by in Shaping Up, Uncategorized

I was down 8 pounds this morning. I will probably go back up since today is a shake day. Thankfully, I am back on shakes and food today.  I understand the 2nd day is easier if you do a two day. I don’t think I want to try it anytime soon. I am too active. Today, I think I should have taken it a little easier. I did a very tough workout in the water.  I had half a shake and then spent an hour outside combing and bathing the…read more

Day 5 Isagenix

Posted by in Shaping Up, Uncategorized

Part of the Isagenix 30 day program are cleanse days. I have had 4 shake days. Today was my first cleanse. I am not going to say it was easy. The first half of the day was not bad. I missed aerobics today. You aren’t supposed to do strenuous exercise. I did a plan where you have something every hour-  this is either the cleanse liquid, an isa delight or 2 isa snacks. Most of the day, I was ok. Toward the end of the day, I was getting hungry….read more

Isagenix Day 4

Posted by in Shaping Up, Uncategorized

I did a photo session last night. I am noticing it is easier to move and get up and down and squat and get back up, etc. That is such a good thing and can only get better! Slept hard again.  Total down 5.4. I know I shouldn’t weigh everyday. I will probably have some days that I come back up or don’t move, but it keeps me motivated. I didn’t get in enough water yesterday.Must do better! Tomorrow is the cleanse. I am slightly nervous about that. I seldom…read more

My IsAgenix Journey

Posted by in Cooking, Healthier Choices, Shaping Up

I have tried so many things to lose weight over the years. Each time I lost, I found it again. I don’t want to find it anymore! I have just over 5 months before I turn 50. I am determined to be fit and fifty instead of fat and fifty! I met Angel on a Central Texas marketing group on facebook. She had been posting before and after photos of people who released their weight. Releasing? That seems to make so much more sense than losing it! She and I…read more
