I lost 8 pounds in 3 weeks doing this!

I use to get on the treadmill for an hour or walk the road for an hour. I lost zero pounds. I did this for one month. I believe I gained weight.

But this has helped me, I think

First thing I drink in the morning on a empty stomach is

1 tsp cayenne pepper,

1 tsp lemon juice

1/4 cup hot water ( think like a shot glass amount)

A little after that I drink 1 tsp of raw honey in luck warm water, honey is not as effective once heated above 100 degrees.

I did not change much of my eating habits as I tend to eat healthy anyways. I will say this, I do eat more sardines at least 3 times a week for breakfast otherwise it’s scrabbled eggs from my chicken coop or oatmeal. I already eat a lot of fruit. By the time I eat dinner my appetite is very small, yet I still eat. I mean I like food.

Before I go to bed I do 50 crunches, and 25 lunges and that’s it. I try to do 1 one minute plank. Sometimes that don’t work out like that.

But I lost the weight. And I can see it. It feel good and I am not hunger all the time like I was before on all the other things I have tried.

If you people have ever tried this let me know how it worked for you.

And the answer is Alex Trebek

Who am I sending my prayers of healing to? People since I was about 10 years old my family and I use to watch Jeopardy. To this day we still watch it as a family when we are all home. Right before the show airs we project how many each of us will get right. I always guess the most that I will get right.(go big or go home). Yet I seldom get the most right. But one day I did get 11 right in one game. Of course that is how I started all my conversations with anyone I spoke with that day. Example: “Mam what would you like to order?” My response, “You know I got 11 right on Jeopardy and I would like a hamburger and fries. ” No kidding I really did this. I still watch Jeopardy even if I am home alone and I still keep score. I once played with my sister over the phone. She realized something was up when I was getting all the correct answers. My TV was a little ahead of hers’

Mr. Trebek I pray that your fight is a successful one and though you kid I hope you are able to finish your contract.

People don’t do this!

image from google not me.

Even though this is not a picture of me it might as well be for the dumb thing I did last week. My sister took us to a basketball game last week, and while I am not a fan of crowds nor do I like basketball, I love my son and he loves basketball. And I wanted to do something fun with him despite my great dislike crowds.

So this is what happened.We arrived at the game in time to pick up some food before entering the arena, this was part of the plan, eat the local cuisine ( as we were in New Orleans) while watching the game. We did precisely that. I made it a point to have my son wash his hand before and after he ate his food. We even washed our hands before we left the arena. And then my dumb self walk down the stairs because I didn’t want to wait on the escalators because they were full, I took the stairs,bad hip and knee and all. Using those, I’m sure now were very germ invested, handrails to help keep my balance. I proceeded straight to the car got inside and opened up my son’s candy which he then poured into my dirty hands and ate valentines day candy right out of my germ invested hands.

Dumb, I know. I wasn’t thinking. But the next day my throat felt scratchy and dry, and the next day I had come down with the dreaded flu. People I have had a hysterectomy and did not feel this bad. Even now my chest hurts from all the coughing fits I have endured. When I think about how dumb it was for me not to wash my hands before pretty much putting them in my mouth, I can only shake my head at my dumbness. I might as well had licked the handrail like the kid did in the picture. And I know some of you are thinking, Perhaps you should have gotten a flu shot. I don’t normally get those because when I was in the military and we were forced to get them,I always got sick. Yet my son received a flu shot and no he did not get sick, he also did not lick the handrails of stairs at a basketball game either.

Thanks for reading my blog, I also wanted to say a special thank you the people of India for taking such a liking to my blog.

Total Recall=Money in the trash

People this post is really just for me to get this anger off my chest so I can say I put my two cent in or that I did say something to everybody and nobody at the same time. But here goes. Over the last year I honestly can not tell you how many food, dog included we have had recalled. I mean don’t get me wrong I know the FDA is suppose to be looking out for our safety, I think I just need someone to direct my anger to. What I am getting at is this:I spend all this money on food and then the News Broadcasters tell me to just throw it in the trash. Just like that. I mean I don’t want to get sick but after throwing away almost five to ten items a week it starts getting expensive. Why can’t I take it back to the store and get a refund. Maybe ,just maybe if we start bringing in enough bad food and demanding a refund stores will stop selling us this toxic stuff to begin with. Lets start it now #refundonrecalledfood. Okay I’m through venting. Anybody notice this problem. I’m just saying

Week 1 Challenge: Complement someone

I know ,I know we all have the typical weight loss goal and/or save more money. How is that working for you? I mean don’t give up on those goals just don’t go about them the way you have in the past.(hint ,It did not work for me) And I know our lives should not be based on other people’s opinion but  sometimes it is. And there is something good about a complete stranger complementing you on something you might be self conscious of and watch how they may walk with a little more pep in their step. I mean don’t tell everyone around you the same thing because no one will feel special.And the goal of this challenge is to lift someone spirits. Trust me this will make you  both feel good.

Happy New Years everyone.

When nothing is working

scale

I wanted to come on here wanted talk about all the weight I have lost from all the walking and drinking water I have been doing. But I can’t. I have walked almost everyday at least three miles.Walking for sometimes more than an hour. I’m short. I have a pedometer and my phone and I’m walking and eating less. And nothing. No weight loss. I’m drinking 72 ounces or more of water daily eating less and walking despite having a bad hip  and bad knee(old military wounds).I had blood work done thinking surly my hormones are all over the place. Everything is fine except my vitamin D2 levels which are very low.

People this is quite depressing. Have any of you ever tried to loose weight and nothing seemed to work. Tell me your story. I’m gonna keep at it. The walks are nice but I wanna see results. Its been 3 weeks and nothing. Not even one pound. Uugh , so I’m out for now. I’ll let you know if I start seeing results. But someone out there please give me some great tips, because clearly mine are not working.
