Going to be gone this weekend :D

Alright lovely blogger friends, 

I am going to be gone all weekend, so I might be back Sunday night or Monday Morning, just saying that I won’t be blogging this weekend (which is technically normal) and I apologize I have been away for three days. I have tons of packing to do tonight because I am leaving tomorrow morning after work. I am going to post my workouts I did this week and will try to make time for another post ..but don’t hold me to it, as I have tons to finish around the house before I leave. Hopefully this coming week, I will have more fun fitness/health topics and workouts as well for all of you. With this all being said, I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend and i will see you soon! ❤

Guest Post: 5 Pros & Cons To Juicing

Hey Fit Community, 

I have another guest blogger, many of you probably already follow him but if you don’t, I hope this particular post will give you a reason to. I started speaking with Christian after about 4-5 months when I first started blogging, he was very social and shown a liking for me and my blog. I think what hit things off, is I was looking for someone to connect with in  the fitness community and while I ended up following others before him, he seemed to be the one that reached out the most to me at the time. We would continue to support each others blog content and talk about our goals within this community and after a long while, we developed a platonic relationship that soon led to us giving each other advice and pointers. I sometimes would blow off his advice and tips because I was not trying to blow up or become this instant famous blogger and YouTuber but after awhile I realized my potential and realized he was giving me a kick in the ass because he seen my potential too and wanted me to excel & I will forever be grateful for that because if he had not been the one to do it, I would have fell off this blog wagon and probably would have never created a YouTube channel nor knew how to access a following on social media. On some of my most overwhelming days, most stressful days, most agitating days, he made sure I was okay and made sure to tell me to not give up, to not walk away and to keep going and I just want to say Thank you Christian for that, thank you for being a great friend to me and thank you for seeing what I could not! It is my honor to have you as a guest blogger.

5 PROS AND CONS TO JUICING

by Christian Evans of ChristiansWeightSuccess.net

PRO’S:

1- GREAT WAY TO GET VITAMINS & NUTRIENTS TO YIUR BLOODSTREAM ASAP. 

  • Instant Energy!!!

 

2- BE CREATIVE AS YOU WANT

  • when I first started juicing I followed a lot of recipes.  Eventually I learned what tasted good & not so good for me.  I let my creative juices (pun intended) flow and started developing my own. See how creative you can be.  

 

3-  ITS A REAL PICK ME UP PROVIDES NEEDED ENERGY

  • It’s like an instant natural high.  Such a great feeling to have.  

 

4- ITS AN ICEBREAKER/ CONVO STARTER

  • There will be lots of people that are skeptical on juicing.  This is a great convo starter that could lead to the exchanging of ideas.  

 

 

5-  TEND TO MAKE HEALTHIER CHOICES OVERALL 

  • When you’re intaking fresh juices daily you tend to make healthier choices overall in your life, as well as diet.  You’re granted with a clearer mindset the more you juice.  

 

 

CONS:

  • THE CLEAN UP
  • Nothing worst than having to clean up your mess.  It’s draining.  There’s no shortcut.  You just have to face it and clean it up.  It’s all to prepare yourself for the next time you do have to juice.  

 

2- NOT KNOWING “WHAT” TO JUICE

  • The thought of not knowing what fruits goes with what veggies is all trial an error.  When you make a bad combo is one of the worst things because it’s produce you paid for and you just have to drink it.  Try asking questions to other people that juice to get some tasty recipes.  Here’s some recipes for you.  

 

  • Here’s all of my juicing recipes 

Just thought I’d share this with you 

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLthKs-2HQI0VxbTxhQfJ09X7qEXUEERtR 

 

3- DRINKING A JUICE EVEN IF ITS A NASTY ONE

  • Making a bad combo is something we all go through.  The thing is you csnt pitch it.  This is money you spent on produce.  Even though it may taste bad you never throw it out.  Just drink it.  Even though it’s nasty.  No juice left behind.  

 

4- PEOPLE LOOKING AT YOUR MASON JAR/ BOTTLE SAYING “EWWWW WHATS THAT?”😒

  • The human mouth has more germs in it than a dog.  People will still kiss one another then sometime a dog without second guessing it.  People will have the nerve to look at your Mason jar (sometimes bottle) of juice and have that “Ewww” face.  It’s like why question this wonderful, nutritious serving of fresh juice yet you exchange saliva with someone else.  It’s mind baffling.  Some people will try to throw shade at your juice but let them taste a little then see how they react then.  

 

5- IT HOOKS YOU 

  • Once you get into a rhythm of drinking the juice, you begin to feel better.  Your mood changes for the better.   If you ever get off track and stop drinking for a few days (in my case a few hours) you start to notice it.  It’s really a natural high you’re constantly chasing. 

 

 

There you have it.  5 pros and cons to juicing.  I love juicing.  It is part of my daily intake.  It is a way of life for me.  Please let me know how juicing has impacted your life.  If you’ve yet to start juicing and still have more questions, feel free to contact me.

Happy Easter

Happy Easter To All My Blogger Friends

I know that not many of you celebrate this Holiday, but know that doesn’t matter to me, Happy Sunday to all of you as well. For some people, Easter is a religious holiday and for others, it means a bunny hops along giving out Easter eggs full of candy, no matter what your beliefs are, and why .. I want ALL OF YOU to have a wonderful Sunday and spend it with people you love and cherish if possible, like any other day but hold them tight and tell them you love them because you never know when it will be the last time. 

 

Thank you to all of you who have wished me a Happy Easter as well, I appreciate it! 😀 

 
 

Brown Rice Vs White Rice (Food/Nutrition)

brown rice

I have a feeling.. This is going to be a heated discussion! No, but seriously, I think this will be a great discussion for all of you to engage in. 

For beginners, let me start by saying that I prefer white rice over brown rice and I eat more white than I do brown rice. Weird? probably considering people tell me all the time why I shouldn’t eat white rice and instead should consume brown rice- but I am rebel without a cause and choose to go about my everyday eating white rice. Does this mean , I am bias? no, I just like one more than the other but I will eat either of them to be honest depending on the dish. I don’t want anyone getting any bright ideas and think that I will try to pull you over to the dark side; but I just might do it! LOL muahahahahah (evil laugh) 

 
 
  1. Do you prefer white rice or brown rice? – or is there another kind of rice you prefer more than the two options
  2. name a recipe you enjoy eating/cooking that either has white rice or brown rice (or you may share the URL to your blog page with it)
  3. If you don’t eat rice, what kind of things do you eat in place of it? 

Brown Rice: (Keep in mind that each brand has their own nutritional value for brown rice)

  • Rich in selenium (known to reduce the risk of common diseases)
  • High in magnesium
  • healthy fats
  • Helps with bowel regularity – because of the amount of fiber
  • considered “whole grain” – hasn’t lost its wholeness through the refinement process
  • High in anti-oxidants
  • Excellent food choice for those with diabetes – helps stabilize blood sugar levels
  • High in manganese 
  • Fills your stomach faster

White Rice:(Keep in mind that each brand has their own nutritional value for white rice)

  • Truth of the matter is, white rice is fine in moderation. While it might not have as many health benefits as brown rice, it doesn’t mean it is all bad for you. White rice is considered easier to digest because it doesn’t contain as high of phytic acid as brown rice. 
  • White rice still has some decent amount of potassium
  • no cholesterol
  • typically higher calories 
  • high in the glycemic index (not a good thing)

So perhaps I lost the battle to bring you over to the dark side and perhaps I need to watch my moderation (which I do) and make sure to eat more brown than white when necessary BUT this doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy some white rice.. I still can and so can you. If you have anything you would like to add to this, feel free. Keep in mind some of the better kinds of rice are the sprouted rice because you get more of the actual minerals that you miss out on when they are sprouted.
