so pushing it with 7 workouts last week was trully hard, this week i think I have the same, i am really tired and my muscles are exausted. i have to eat a bit more carbs this week to keep up with all this muscle abuse.This week I am going to make cauliflower mashed potatoes, from my nutritionist freind Sunny, and also I will try one new recipe out of my fitness mags, I will let you know which one when i decide.Today will be another rest day, because I need it badly. By tomorrow , Zumba should be a breeze. Have a great Cinco de Mayo, enjoy those cocktails lightly.

Many of us have overwhelming schedules juggling work, family, and life so understandably it sounds near impossible to integrate a fitness and nutrition program into our hectic world. The weight of our responsibilities will only get heavier as the years go by so the best way to cope is to lessen the weight (fat) we hold in our bodies.
CRAZY!!!So yesterday was day 3 , I taught 2 sculptinmg classes back to back, 15 min drive to the 2nd. that was my break,I was sweating in the car but got there with a smile on my face to 42 people in class,I had 5 men in there, what a nice surprise.

This is from 'Engineering the Alpha' by John Romaniello & Adam Bornstein. PLEASE take note. I agree with all of them.
1. Fat doesn't make you fat. It is necessary for hormonal balance.
2. Heavy weights don't make you bulky. Don't fear them, they are your friend.
3. Yoga is not for girls.
4. Muscle does not weigh more than fat. But fat does take up a lot more space than muscle.
My Mom and Dad are both 90 and recently went to the funeral of a good friend. I was kind of nervous to call home and ask how it went because I know I would just be a mess if a good friend died. But I took a deep breath, called, said my condolences to mom and asked her how it went. Her answer shocked me! She said, “Oh it was great! We got to see all of our friends.”
