It's okay if you don't have a set of weights or exercise equipment. Use what you do have!

I’m into my second full week of living healthy, and I’m feeling good.

I wish I could say the exercise bike it assembled, but it’s not. I’ve been busy with work, and it’s a two-person job. I live alone, and my fur babies aren’t helpful. 😉 I am excited that the scales show I’m dropping weight.

My go-to drink to stay hydrated is Amped Hydrate. It gives me the nutrients I need to replenish, but it does much more. I’ve included an image with the ingredient list so you can see what’s in this amazing drink. I drink it throughout the day, and it’s also good for the entire family.


Amped Hydrate - Hydration and Nutrients for the Whole Family Fact! You lose tons of fluids, nutrients, and electrolytes throughout your day.

Amped Hydrate (Lemon-Lime) ingredients

This past week, I’ve had my usual coffee with creamer and coconut sugar. I’m also going to try Swerve and will let you know how it tastes. I can’t stand any sweetener that has any kind of aftertaste. I heard good things about Swerve, so we will see how it goes. I’ve drank a lot of the lemon-lime Amped Hydrate (several a day) and have been doing my fave mixture of Amped Power (cherry berry), Fruits, and Cleanse for Life (peach mango) once a day. If I get hungry, I eat a small snack (usually a jerky stick and stick of cheddar cheese), an IsaLean® Bar (chocolate decadence and chocolate coconut almond are my faves), or a square of IsaDelight (chocolate, caramel, and seat salt).

I pretty much eat what I want, but I have modest portions and do not get seconds. Interestingly, though, I’ve yet to finish a full meal. I am getting full faster! Over the past week, when I’m not eating the jerky and cheese or a meal replacement shake, I’ve had a steak dinner, ribs on the grill, a bowl of soup, and today I had a Newk’s club sandwich from with a side of fruit instead of chips. I ordered a Newk’s ultimate salad for tomorrow.

Now for the big news… weight stats update!

July 13, 2020

Weight – 188.2
Waist - 42
Hips - 45

More progress! When I hopped on the scales, I was nervous. The first weigh-in showed about 2 pounds lost, so I was expecting about the same. When I saw 188.2, I weighed again—three times!

I am pleased with my journey, and I would love to have a conversation with you. What are your needs or concerns? Weight loss? Feeling better overall? Healthy ageing? Improved mental clarity and brain support? Family fitness?
