This morning started out great.  I woke up and headed over to the Y for an upbeat cardio SPINNING class.  It kicked my butt…well, my legs actually.  I was sweating like crazy by the end of it.  I stayed after class finished to do some AB exercises using the big exercise ball.  I hope to get another short AB workout in tonight before bed.  I’ll let you know if that happens.

After Spin class ended, I met up with a lady who introduced to some awesome products that I am excited to try and potentially market to others.  It is known as XOCAI Chocolate & I was told about it two weeks ago by a friend of mine.  It is chocolate that is super-healthy, natural, and Anti-oxidant rich.  It is good stuff.  I’ll be posted a lot more information about the product on my site soon, but I already have ordered myself the “Power Squares” to take on a daily basis.  I also ordered a case of the X3 energy drink they offer.  This is a great replacement for those caffeine junkies out there…you know who you are! ~ It is an all natural energy drink that uses the natural stimulator known as ‘theobromine’.  Theobromine is a vasodilator, same as caffeine, but does not have the negative side effects on the body.  I’m so excited to start supplementing my diet with it.  I know others who drink it once per day and their energy levels have soared; and, most of all, they have broken their habits of ingesting excessive amounts of caffeine on a daily basis.  WHOOP!!

Well, on to eats for today.  I have only snapped ONE picture so far, because I’m just not quite back into the habit of it yet.  ~ I started out with a POWERBALL after Spin class to give my muscles some re-building fuel.

Then I sampled a Xocai Active “shot” is what I would call it.  Loaded with anti-oxidants, 90 calories, and tasted like I was drinking down a shot-glass amount of pure chocolate bliss.  I don’t understand how it can taste so good & only be 90 calories with zero fat, but it’s because it’s the purest cold-pressed Cacoa! Yum!

Since I stayed at the ladie’s home into lunch hour, she offered to share with me the “wellness” shake that she drinks on a routine basis.  It can be used as a weight-loss shake if you take 2 scoops, or a “wellness” shake if you only use 1 scoop of powder.  She mixed 1 scoop with a little 2% milk + 3 ice cubes and mixed it using the Magic Bullet ~ tasted like I was drinking chocolate milk.  It was oh-so-good.  And definitely hit the spot after the morning workout.

Once I got home I started doing odd jobs around the house and decided on an afternoon snack about 3PM.  I ate a PERFECT Banana & fixed a piece of toast topped with LC (Laughing Cow) Light Swiss Cheese & a tid-bit of tomato/basil sauce (Kroeger brand). After I ate it, I recited the words “My snack is done.  My stomach is not longer empty.  I am nourished & will not need anything else until dinner tonight. Go in peace.”  It worked.  I felt finality with ending my snack & I did not return to the kitchen.  Well, only to get another glass of water!

So you are probably wondering why the title ‘High to Low’ ~ it is because my day started out so great, but totally went down-hill when I heard some bad news pertaining to my apartment I’m trying to sub-lease.  Long story short, I thought I was going to be sub-leasing my apartment for this coming semester so I would not have that added cost, but it didn’t work out.  I’m back to square one. Bummer.

I didn’t let that bad news totally ruin my day, though.  I went to my grandparents house for dinner with my Dad, but I stopped off for some Subway since I was craving it! And boy was it delicious.  I also ate some lots of green-beans my grandma made & had a Caffeine free Dt. Dew while I was there.  ~ I’m really trying to  cut those out of my life, but right now I’m just trying to cut it back to having one every other day.  It is a great ‘sweet tooth’ replacement for me, which is why I can’t seem to cut them totally just yet.

For evening snack I had a tangelo & a piece of toast with a smidge of PB and SF Jelly like last night.  It was very tasty.  I said my final saying so I knew the snack had ended.  No more food until after BodyPump in the morning!

Well, I’m off to do some research on Shakeology & XOCAI. Catch ya all tomorrow!
