Rolling with the punches.

Hi Guys

I have to say today ended in a bad note for me, emotionally. My cat Alfy passed away and it really hurts. I had to say goodbye to him twice. Once, when I had to give him away ( that was HARD) and now when he passed of old age. It's harder the second time because I know I wont see him again.
Im strong and I try to find the positive but for today I needed some time to myself.

I want to add some positivity to this day and focus on my goals. I refuse to let you guys, nor myself down, therefore stayed focused. I ate a very healthy lunch and dinner today.
I lacked on increasing my water intake and my mid A.M and P.M snacks...I will get better at this. It's only day two.

In a few I will put my baby girl to sleep and get in a a good 1 hr work out.
I might opt for p90x today.

Today I realized some obvious challenges. Portion control,even with my healthy meals.

I have to say guys, this is tough. There are just certain things that are hard to give up. Mine is Coffee with cream. Today I had my daily morning cup of Joe, however I opted added a little bit of milk and two packets of Splenda instead of cream and two teaspoons of reg sugar. It's a change I can work with and hopefully later on I will be able to see coffee as a treat and make it a 2-3 times a week thing, replacing the morning cup of Joe for Green tea.
Look at the Benefits of Green tea below.

What's the one thing you can't give up when improving your eating habits?

Will you be drinking more green tea?


  1. I ♥ green excellent one for you to try (when you are ready), is Mightly Leaf Tea - Green Tea Tropical. I think you would like it!! Has a bit of latin flavor with pineapple and guava and smells delish!

  2. I am getting this tea STAT. Thanks so much for sharing !

  3. Hi Nel! I love green tea too! Thank you for inviting me to your blog. Sorry to hear about your cat. It does get easier I remember when the thought of having coffee without cream and sugar was unthinkable and I could only eat broccoli if it was covered in velveeta lol, man how times have changed, I have a weight loss blog as well, pop on over some time! Enjoy your workout! :)

  4. Hey Tea, Thanks for Following. You give me so much hope. I will definitely check out your blog =0)

  5. Didn't know that about green tea, I should def get on that! I mostly drink water, no soda and I've never been one for coffee. I usually drink tea when I'm not feeling good. this was very informative to consider incorporating into my everyday drinking habits. Sorry about your cat :(
