Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 20

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 20

Heavy workout day! I really gave it all that I had and did the stairs 5 times.  Wow.  Don’t feel like eating that junk on a day like that.  I will rest a while and go into a new challenge. I really am grateful for so many things.  But I do stumble and have to pick my self up.  It can be frustrating and very discouraging for me at times when I slip.  But I know the power of health and mental healing.  I also know the power of the written results from…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 19

Great day of working out and getting myself together! I’m focusing on the good and not lingering on the bad. I always feel so much better doing the right thing and especially eating clean. I focused more on smoothies and enjoying my fruits. I jumped on doing my food plan before I had a change of mental strength. It is so much easier with my plan in place!

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 18

I did much better today although I have to be honest and say that I ate crackers with my salad. I feel okay physically, but the mental disappointment is really a drag. I can tell a lot of things change when I disappoint myself, not to mention, disappointing others. I have my final two days to work through and I’m determined to making the proper changes for myself. Maybe a small break after this 3rd detox is over would be good for me… but I will still stick to a vegan diet as I love beans. I want…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 17

Want to go full force back on track! My mind is wondering about so many things… Maybe because of the way I look, I have fooled myself into thinking that it is okay to eat poorly?! Is that the craziest thinking or what? Eating poorly makes me look poorly! I have the weekend to go through and get my workouts on through that time as well. I just want to hide. Hide where though? I cannot hide from myself. I know better than this. I also have been extremely…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 16

Wow can you believe all the wonderful and great things I have done since beginning my detox?! I have worked out with a trainer that has brought me to the steps of life and endurance! And then… guess what has happened? I have had a MELTDOWN… Don’t ask me why… or… PLEASE ask me why! I know that accountability is a must for me. I have tasted the forbidden fruit and could not stop myself. All the good things have gotten even better and yet I have subjected myself to this. I feel so low…

I cannot believe that I have gained 2 pounds!  I have been in a tailspin… Where did that come from?  I honestly feel like…  why be good? These workouts are no joke and I have been giving it  all that I have!  Where did the weight come from? I have lost so much weight already and I don’t want to spoil things for myself, but I feel discouraged…  What is going on? Will talk to my trainer in depth………

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 12

Yesterday was fun and informative! There were so many ways to learn and it was full of people who eat like me! I bought natural products and had a great smoothie, like I have never had before! I am still on my plan and feeling great! Later we are going out to dinner again and that so far is okay. Don’t need to keep tempting myself though. I have my menu plan in my head and that is helpful. Also my family encouragement and disbelief are encouraging too. It has been very warm out here…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 11

Day 11 is here! Yesterday I did not do anything that would hinder my success. When we went out to eat I had a huge salad. The waiter couldn’t believe that was all that I wanted and kept on asking me if I wanted anything else. My family was impressed, but I am so much into the routine of things that it really did not bother me. I walked up and down the stairs at the hotel and used that as my exercise. We are leaving pretty early for the festival and I really look forward to the…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 10

Today I will be traveling to the raw food festival. I have done my training and will leave this early afternoon. A bit scary because we will be staying at a hotel for 3 days and those are the times when I really like to eat whatever I want. Old behavior patterns and such start to kick in. On the other hand I will get a chance to see what I can do for myself. I have not packed anything but my herbs and will buy water when I get there. This will surely be a test.

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 9

Almost half way through the detox. I will have my blood work results in a week. My blood pressure and my weight are really doing fantastic. My blood pressure in 116/78 and I have lost another 5 pounds since last week. My trainer encourages me not to get into the weighing game. That is what I needed to hear and have to remind my self of it especially since I train so hard. I am looking for huge results in the weight department. I really do feel healthy and stronger.

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 7

Wow doing the beach steps and walking to and from the sand after a work out is a true challenge.  Just walking to the sand point where I exercise is a challenge.  I am even running!  Something I said I would not do and felt could not do…  but I am! The herbal detox is making challenges that I had seem so much more attainable.  I don’t feel sore and don’t feel like giving up.  Just do it is my mental motto. I am really looking forward to how I will feel when the detox…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 6

My day off from training is Sundays.  I usually want to do something and I take a walk near my house.  I seem to do more cooking without a problem for my family.  It is nice to feel that 5-6 days a week I really give exercise all that I have and it is working.  Feel a bit excited to be going to the raw food festival in Santa Barbara and to see what vegans are eating and talking about for 3 days.  Will leave this coming week for the festival.  Just going to relax and do my quiet…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 5

Five days of working out and I still need to figure out how I do it everyday without the painful aftermath. Oh, well… just be thankful and learn to take blessings as they come. Today I walked a long uphill battle. Walking from Robertson in Beverlywood to Westside Pavillion. I never knew there were so many hills in the area. How beautiful to walk on an early morning and see such beauty and surroundings. Sometimes I would be a bit slow and tired and right at that time it seems that I would be ready…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 4

Working out daily is tough! I have my food plan going well and with the personal trainer as my guru, I am really learning how much I can do. One thing that is very noticeable to me is that my body seems to recover so well. I have not felt sore or achy. I seem to be able to do what is expected of me and more. I thought that the food would be a huge part of my training, meaning that I would need to really eat a lot more. But more than anything…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 3

I am getting up earlier and earlier. I have always been an early riser but the feeling of health and wellness is so strong. I don’t drag out of bed and I get up and start preparing my foods and meals for my family without a problem. I weighed myself today and I have rid my self of another 5 pounds since Friday. All because I want to be healthy. My body releases well and I drink at least a gallon of water a day. I don’t have to constantly use the bathroom because my…

Day 2 What a great workout! I did 800 stairs at Drake Stadium and still kept my workout time to an hour! I feel so grateful and not as tired as I expected. I have my smoothie in the morning and go directly to my workout. After my workout, I have a bottle of water and take my 2nd herbs. Then it is my time for work and organizing my life. I’m not sure what happened to my weight, but I didn’t lose anything this weekend. A bit uncomfortable, but I feel…

Today, was such an exciting day! I now have a personal trainer to work me out 6 days a week. My mind loves it my body… is rebelling. I started out so well and did not do as bad as I thought I would. I did the Santa Monica stairs one whole time!!! Believe me, before just going dooooown the stairs was an issue! Having made it back up, as my tongue licked the pavement, I surely walked the distance to a new city! lol! By the time I did get back…
