The Vitamin Dilemma

bliving2

vitamins

So we are off to a great start to the new year, right? We have our exercise routine going, eating right, wearing our fitness gadgets, and ready to take that new multi vitamin, until we look at the other ingredients. That happened to me. I just had to look, and low and behold, I thought I would check out what these things were on the internet. Here is what I found.

Cellulose Gel – is usually made from nontoxic wood pulp or cotton. It is used to thicken a product without adding any calories or fat. It is fibrous, which is why it appears in so many high-fiber “healthy” snacks.

Matodextrin – is an artificial sugar made from corn starch. Could cause an allergic reaction.

Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose – food additive for thickening and emulsifying liquids.

Magnesium Sterate – purpose is to act as a lubricant to prevent the tablet contents…

Reasons To Wash Your Face With Apple Cider Vinegar

u-VIB Blog

applecidervinegar (1)The thought might put you off. Why would you want to smear such smelly stuff all over your face when there are delightfully scented face care products available? I’ll tell you why. Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is freaking awesome, that’s why!…Still not convinced? Let me elaborate…

Real ACV is made by fermenting pressed apple juice until the natural sugar turns into vinegar. The ACV you should use is the raw, organic, unfiltered, and unpasteurized kind of ACV. Not the refined kind. Only the good quality kind of ACV contains the “mother” of vinegar, which is the cloudy stuff that sinks to the bottom of the bottle. This substance contains the beneficial enzymes, bacteria, pectin and trace minerals that makes ACV so good for you. Just remember to shake the bottle each time before using ACV to distribute the elements. You can even easily make your own natural ACV.

AVC contains…

New Fitness Goal and where I currently Stand

My old goal of joining the U.S. Military has changed. I unfortunately can not join due to medical reasons. A lot has changed last year and A new goal is set to finish college and still stay into fitness of course. I dont think I can ever let go of fitness. I will never go back to the old fat me again.
As for now I am working at a used car dealership, focusing on losing weight again, getting back into music and paying off an old school debt.
I find it pretty hard to lose weight right now. I think its because of all the surgeries and uterus being inflamed. I am going to get checked again soon because its pretty depressing how my body has stalled on weight loss.
So, to sum it up, Ive changed my old goal into something even better and will keep posting about it to share but to also keep me motivated! 🙂
Thanks for reading!

Infographic: High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

Three Steps Forward, Zero Steps Back

I am a big fan of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). I’d much rather work harder and faster than spend hours on treadmills and elliptical machines. The below infographic by Greatist gives a good insight into the various types of HIIT training, including my personal favourite, tabata training.

What I learned in life is…

What I learned in life is,

That no matter how good a person is, 
         sometimes they can hurt you & because of this we must forgive. 
It takes years to build trust and only seconds to destroy it ..
We don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.. 
The circumstances and the environment influence on our lives, 
         but we are the one who responsible for ourselves.. 
That you have to control your acts or they will control you.. 
That patience requires much practice.. that there are people who love us,
         but simply don’t know how to show it..
That sometimes the person you think will hurt you and make you fall..
Is instead one of the few who will help you to get up.. 
You should never tell a child that dreams are fake, it would be a tragedy if they knew..
It’s not always enough to be forgiven by someone, 
      in most cases you have to forgive yourself first.. 
That no matter in how many pieces your heart is broken, the world doesn’t stop to fix it ..
May be god wants us to meet all the wrong people first before meeting the right one.. 
So when we finally meet the right one we are grateful for that gift ..
When the door of happiness closes, another door opens.. 
       but often we look so long at the closed one.. we don’t see what was open for us .. 
The best kind of a friend is the kind in which you can sit on a porch and walk… 
Without saying a word & when you leave it feels it was the best conversation you ever had. 
It’s true we don’t know what we have until we find it, but its also true,
       we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.. 
It only takes a minute to offend someone, an hour to like someone, 
       a day to love someone, but it takes a life time to forget someone. 
Don’t look for appearances, they can be deceiving, don’t go for wealth even that can fade, 
Find someone who makes you smile, because it only takes a smile to make a day better, 
    find what makes your heart smile..
There are moments in life when you miss someone so much.. 
    that you wish you can take them out of your dream and hug them for real..
Dream what you want, go wherever you want to go.. because you have only one life.. 
    and one change to do the things you want to do .. 
The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything, 
    they just make the best of everything that comes their way. 
The best future is based on the forgotten past.. 
You can’t go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.
