Why Can't it be Easy?


I've been struggling to find the balance lately and wanted to vent a little. I find it unfair that some people can eat "whatever they want" and not gain weight. I find it unfair that many people don't have to weigh/measure their food or count their calories. I find it unfair that many people can get away with doing NO cardio and still maintain their weight. I find it unfair that men can gain muscle MUCH easier than women.

I've been having a hard time finding a good balance these last few weeks. I'm tired of eating the same meals all the time, tired of doing cardio, upset that my work travels have interfered with my schedule, mad that I can't eat froyo, blah blah blah.

I have a photoshoot coming up in about 10 weeks so I'm supposed to really be giving it "all I've got" and I just don't feel like I've got that much to give. I don't know what the deal is but I'm just not in the mood like I usually am.

I don't know really know where I'm going with this, I know I should just "suck it up" and I will but I wanted to vent. I also wanted all of my "followers" to know that even though I run a page that serves to motivate others, even I have days, weeks, months where I lack motivation. I will post things that aren't even motivating me because I'm just in a mood. 

We are all human and go through phases in life. Just know that it will pass, you just have to stay focused on your goals and keep your eye on the prize.

Thank for listening :-)

Barlean's Review


I was fortunate enough to receive a few products from Barlean's to review. I have used some of their products before but not the Wild and Whole Krill Oil or the new Superfruit Greens. I have been impressed with both products so far. The Superfruit greens are really yummy (even my 10 year old nephew likes them) and have lots of antioxidants, superfruits and 8 servings of fruits and veggies per serving. I really like having these around if I need an extra serving for myself or even the kids!! The Krill oil is also great. When I initially opened the bottle, there was a pretty strong fish smell which had me worried but after taking them for weeks, I can assure you there is no "fishy" after taste or "burping" with these. I have also used Barlean's original fish oil capsules and those are great too. These products are high quality and reasonably priced to meet the needs of any family!

Barlean's has a great video on their Krill Oil, click here to watch!

Sinless Margarita Review



I received a shipment of the sinless margarita mixers and they are awesome. they are sweetened with stevia, all natural and only 5 calories per serving. I mixed them with rum and also made some "virgin" drinks with them, they are great both ways. My favorite is to mix a little of the mojito mix with my sparkling water, gives it a nice refreshing taste. If you haven't tried these mixers, you really should :)
