My first transformation Tuesday! I’m so proud of how far I’ve come.  This is about a 10 pound difference.  Totally I’ve lost about 25 lbs over 5 months (started at the end of April).  I started with just eating healthy and going for walks/jogs, then I began drinking Shakeology in the morning and did the 60 day PiYo challenge.  I’ve still got a ways to go.  my goal is to lose over 40 pounds.

You need someone who goes out of their way to make it obvious that they want you in their life. ″

The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that’s not the one. When you meet your ‘soul mate’ you’ll feel calm. No anxiety, no agitation ″

Some days I feel like a princess. Some days, I’ll feel beautiful and other days, I don’t. I remember when I bought the dress I’m wearing in the picture it was too small at the time and now, it’s waay to big. I’m a work in progress.

Quinoa Vs. Rice! Quinoa is the winner! Amazing food!

Read about the benefits of Quinoa below:

Health Benefits of Quinoa 1 – Quinoa for Weight Loss
Quinoa has more protein than all other grains and the protein in quinoa contains all essential amino acids making it a complete protein. According to a study, in comparison to wheat and rice, quinoa was found to provide greater satiety, making it an excellent alternative for weight loss and management.

Health Benefits of Quinoa 2 – Quinoa for Celiac Disease
Quinoa is an important source of nutrients for individuals having celiac disease. Celiac disease is brought on by dietary gluten present in wheat, rye and barley. A strict gluten free diet is the current treatment for celiac disease. Quinoa is highly nutritious, with low prolamin concentrations, which has been advised as part of a gluten free diet for celiac disease.

Nutrients in Quinoa
Quinoa is a great source of manganese  and magnesium. It’s a very good source of protein source as well as vitamins E and B2, and dietary fiber. It’s a good source of iron, copper, phosphorus and zinc. Quinoa has been considered as a crop for NASA’s Controlled Ecological Life Support System due to its high protein values and unique composition of amino acids. One serving of quinoa has the following amino acids: leucine, isoleucine, lysine, tyrosine, phenylalanine, methionine, cysteine,  histidine, threonine, tryptophan and valine. The exact amounts of these amino acids varies slightly, but a serving of quinoa always has significant amounts of each. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Our bodies require amino acids to make structural proteins as well as produce hormones and neurotransmitters. Although our bodies use a multitude of amino acids, we only need nine essential amino acids in our diet.

History of Quinoa
Quinoa was for the South American Native Americans a dietary staple. A mixture of fat and quinoa known as “war balls” was used to sustain the Incan armies that usually marched days at a time. In an effort to wipe out the South American natives as well as their culture, the Spanish conquistadors just about eradicated the existence of quinoa.

The majority of quinoa is brought in from South American countries like Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador, though it’s also being grown in the Colorado Rockies in the U.S.

Thanks to for this amazing graphic.

You tried to change, didn’t you? Closed your mouth more, tried to be softer, prettier, less volatile, less awake…You can’t make homes out of human beings. Someone should have already told you that. ″

I didn’t want to have to make this journey alone. I wanted to have someone that I could talk to and share my enthusiasm and feeling scared. I wanted someone I could workout with and train with. I will be doing this alone. I won’t have my own personal cheerleader or someone by my side. It sucks being single when you want someone to share your life with.
