Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 10

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 10

  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…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 9

  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

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…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 6

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…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 5

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 5

  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…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 4

  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…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 3

  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…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 2

Day 2 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…

Mona’s Quest Continues – Day 1

Day 1 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…
