So Neal and I in the last few months have decided to take on a journey of being healthy and well.. What does this mean you ask? Well We kinda came to a point of being unhappy with our weight and how we look, and we were sick of feeling like poo!
So we decided to start working out.. which helped alot! Then i started thinking i should give up the one thing i love most next to my husband and my dog and my coach purse. Dr.Pepper it now has been 3 weeks later and i feel great! When i eat i dont feel as nasty and fat like i did before and i don't feel i have took all this crap and stuff into my body, Neal is still working on the pop thing... Which is hard for him since he works a lot of hours, but i will say how proud i am of him not drinking 3 yes 3 ROCKSTARS a day.. Which i think is HUGE!! But i will say as for me on stop drinking pop has paid off, i am 10 pounds lighter and counting.. Neal has also dropped 11 pounds!! WHICH IS AWESOME! Along with our weight goals, or health goals, and our day to day living goals....
I came a course a thing called VEO natural... Which is something that is so powerful to help you loose weight, feel great, and be more healthy!

After a week of taking the stuff, My husband has stoped drinking pop, felt more alert, Been more a wake felt more alive, and as he puts it.. i feel like im 18 again.. and i can work all day and stay up all night.. As for me.. I feel so GOOD! i dont feel nasty, i dont feel clogged.
So you ask what i have been on..
I have been drinking the energy drink.. ZING-Vitamins B12, and B6 aid in cellular formation and cellular longevity, are required for proper protein synthesis, and metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. They affect both physical and mental health. A B vitamin deficiency can lead to a host of unpleasant physical and neurological symptoms, as well as a lack of energy. We all learn in Biology that vitamin B must be present in various forms darning the Krebs cycle for energy to be produced and stored in the cell for future use. If the body is lacking in Vitamin B’s no energy can be produced on a cellular level. Vitamin C helps to increase metabolic rate and caloric expenditure, thereby increasing energy and aiding in weight loss. Enzymes that enhance oxygenation, like coenzyme Q-10, improves heart health, and has some of the strongest known anti-oxidant properties, supports robust energy levels by facilitating the breakdown of fat for fuel. It has also been shown to possibly improve muscle function and stamina by increasing energy at the cellular level. We have included L-Aspartic acid, L-Glutamic Acid, L-Isoleucine L-leucine, L-Valine, and L-Taurine which have a stimulant effect, enhance hydrogen production, sustains blood sugar or serum balance, regulates the digestion of fats, decreases cholesterol levels, increases stamina, energy production, fat utilization, mental acuity, muscle metabolism, and tissue repair just to name a few. No high energy drink would be complete without energy boosting and powerful anti-oxidant supplements such as green tea, guarana extract, natural caffeine, and adaptogens that overcome fatigue and stimulate caloric expenditure, thereby increasing energy, endurance and stamina in times of exhaustion or stress and boosting feelings of inner well-being and vitality. Now we can’t possibly ruin it now with artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners, so we have used only natural flavors of grape skin extract (for color), citric acid, Stevia sweet leaf and Lo Han Guo. !

Well it has happened... i have gave up Dr. Pepper... and...
i think im going to kill someone to get one!!

I have given it up.. for water, H20, hoping to have success with losing weight and keeping a consist weight...But let me tell you.. i think my body is a little in shock and doesn't know what to do.. I shake a little, and shout out random words, and i even droll when i see commercial for the great fizzy feeling, with the sweet taste of soda, goes with anything, tastes so good... for whatever occasion... It has only been one day... and i just want to drop anything to go get one... Ever since i could remember i have had Dr. Pepper by my side.. as A Young Girl, me and my Best Friend Kristen knew how to look at the top of the cap, to get a free Dr. Pepper.. And let me tell you that is great talent.. until i think the gas station started to catch on to us.. But I will let you know of my success with being off soda, and working out consistently to gain, my weight goals.. and being more health and happy with my body.. to gain.. a GREAT BIKINI BODY!

is this bad.

For a couple days now Neal and I have been talking about some things that have happened with good friends of ours, in the last few days, and talking about having " our life".. And don't understand why people or friends feel so concerned why we never come out and hang out... Not that it is a bad thing to hang out with friends you have been friends with since high school.. But we found out some time ago.. that We are our own best friend.. and with him in Idaho, when he is home all we want to do is lay in bed and watch a movie.. But I don't understand why, our friends feel the need to presser the need to always have a pizza night, game night, movie night.. SOMETHING.. its not bad.. By all means.. We have just came to the point in our life.. that We want it to just be us... and not have friends feeling that they need to be concerned? come up with off the wall things about us, thinking we have a bad marriage because, we never want to hang out with some very short, sweet, fabulous time that we have with each other... WE LIKE TO BE HERMITS... But why do some of our friends make us feel that is bad??? Is it bad.. that i would love to just pack up and move.. far far far far far far away??

Sunday fun!

So Yesterday we took lexie out on her first real big walk.. As Puppies you have to be really careful with walking them... it can hurt their joints, stomach, and paws because they grow as mush as a human does in 14 years, in just one year.... so we have been really careful on not walking her to far.. till yesterday.
It all started with me in the morning saying i want to go on a jog/walk by our house in West haven on a Trail that takes you up to Dinosaur park.. its 3.7 miles.. one way.
So we decided to take lexie, and after about mile 2 and a half.. she started to lay down, and acting like she did not want to go any further.. so we thought we might take her back, and try it again another day.. may i remind you.. the whole time.. Neal is saying, im sleepy, my feet hurt , this is boring, im hot, and once the dog showed any sign of stoping he says.. Yup gotta go home! Well anyways.. i thought it was very cute that once we got home we put her in her kennel with the fan on her and this is how we found her... i have never since a dog sleep like this, and it made me laugh so hard!!.. so enjoy!

I think im 65 in a 22 year old body...
