Father’s Day at the Beach June 22, 2015

So it is officially summer, as of yesterday, and since yesterday was Father’s Day and the first day of summer it seemed only fitting to make a trip to the beach. My husband is nuts for this little Korean Taco stand in Asbury Park called Mogo, so that was our desired destination. The weather forecast did not look promising at all last week and we didn’t think we were going to be able to make it down there, but when we got up yesterday and checked the weather it was clear skies so, we went. It was a hot day and the water is still a bit cold so we didn’t stay too long but it was enough to hang out by the water for a while and get some lunch before heading back towards home to visit my parents for dinner.

I was very excited to put on my bathing suit for the first time this season, I was on my 60th day, last day of my Piyo yesterday, and it has made some wonderful changes to my body. In 60 days I have lost 13 lbs and inches off my waist hips and thighs. I have some before and after pictures below. Now when I say I’m done I mean I completed the 60 day schedule that came with the workout, I actually plan to continue for at least another 30 day because I still find the workouts challenging and I am so happy with my results so far I want to keep going.

Since starting this program I have been able to set up my exercise time to fit more comfortably with my schedule. I don’t have to wait for a class to start or make time to drive anywhere.  Because of this I have made some changes to the time I am eating dinner, and it is helping me to eat less each night. Before ,when I had to go out to exercise, I was getting hungry after work so I would eat something before and then again after my workout, but now, I exercise as soon as I get home and then I only eat once after, and if I do snack it’s something small.

I am so happy with my results, and how I feel overall each day I wanted to share.

your brain

Morning all, I know I have been slacking off on my blogging again,and it’s not because I have nothing to write about. I actually think it’s because i have too much. I going through one of those everything is happening at once, times in my life so I have to keep my mind on a short leash. So instead of sitting down to write I have been keeping myself active by working out everyday, and my mind calm with daily meditation, even if its only for a few minutes at a time. Both of these activities keep you focused o the present moment a keep your mind from running off on wild tangents. So even though I’m kind of off my regular routine and now I have  some decisions to make , I am happy that I am able to take good care of my self . So even when things seem to get to be too much ,you can always find a few minutes to keep yourself together. That’s all for now, i’m sure I’ll have more to say soon.

Be well and take time to take care of you
