Hello again!

Well, Weight Watchers and I lasted for about 3 months. I logged my food everyday for about a month, then got so bored with it. I started only logging breakfast and lunch. Then I would skip days. Then a week. I couldn't afford the program. When you live paycheck to paycheck, spending an extra $40-50 bucks a month on a program you don't use to its utmost is a waste of money. It's a great program, it's just not for me, not at this time. Unfortunately, this means the gym membership has to go too.

Apple Cider Vinegar...I have decided to try drinking ACV. In water, it's horrid. The first time I used 2 tsp. of ACV I gagged!! I got 2 sips in me. The next time, I used 1 tsp. of ACV with 1 tsp. of Agave nectar. Still horrid. About the only way I can drink it is in Apple juice. The information I pulled off the internet stated that if you drink ACV, which in liquid form is the most effective, it will help flush your system, aid in digestion, clear up skin issues, curb cravings, and regulate your metabolism. Its also really good for heartburn. I have only drank it in apple juice the one time. I know it's not going to taste good, but at least in apple juice I am able to drink it. Several issues I'm hoping it will help me with - frequent heart burn, my rosacea, and I need to lose weight. I know its not a miracle cure and don't look for it to be, but maybe it will help with my sugar cravings. If I can't do the liquid, then I will try it in pill form.

Zumba. OH MY WORD... ZUMBA. IS. SO. FREAKING. HARD. I bought the DVD's so that I can do them at home. I have two left feet and no rhythm. It's like my brain has a shut off switch when it comes to dancing.

The thing with weight loss is that you really have to want it, be totally dedicated to it. It's not easy. It's a lifestyle change. You have to be willing and able to make the change. I'm going to keep trying and struggling until I figure out what works for me.

Until next time,



  1. Multivitamin acts as insurance of sorts in case you don't eat the proper nutrition, even though it's generally better to eat your minerals and vitamins from the food you eat.

  2. I do need to start taking vitamins as well. I'm terrible at remembering to take them. Need to start new healthy habits and to let go of the bad ones.
