Hello,

I am so excited I finally found a homemade hemp milk recipe to try.

As I said before I can have any dairy for now but slowly my nutritionist will add some of it back in a couple months. When I first quit dairy I started drink almond drink instead and I found out I am intolerante to almonds too. My doctor told me to try hemp milk and I hated it maybe for one week after that I felt in love with hemp.

Hemp milk is very expensive I pay around $5 per box that

I drink in a week and half. This recipe I made the same amount is in the box for around $2 and is way healthier and better taste.

The recipe I found on the detoxinista website.

Home workout

Hello,

Around almost four years ago I started to work out at home. Slowly I started to buy equipments so I didn’t have to go to the gym because I could not afford it. Some people said they don’t get in shape because they can’t afford a gym but that is jump one more excuse. I lost 20 pounds by working out at home just with body weight exercises and healthy food. But a year ago I got mostly of that weight back because I was suffering from food allergy and intolerances. I had to started to see a nutritionist that found my food intolerances and plans all my meals and supplements. I  lost 12 of pounds and have around 10 or less to go. Here is a little bit about how I started my home workout some years ago.

 I first got dumbbells:

I still remember that I paid $20 dollars for it. (Sorry, but my dog would not take his cute face away from my dumbbells.) I felt like adding dumbbells to my body weight exercises improve a lot but after some months it become to easy again. So I purchased the most exciting thing I have. My 40 pounds sandbag:

I just love this sandbag, I can do lower and upper body exercises and also use on my abs exercises. Months later, it was xmas and guess what was on my list? Dip station. My husband gave them to me and I also love this one. My dip station and my swiss ball are kept by my bed.

I am working out really hard because I really need my six packs back. This picture is from today 10 more pounds to go. I am almost there. It is being really hard. I take pictures of my belly every week because it keeps me motivated. What do you do to keep yourself motivated?

 

Are pets good for your health?


Pets don’t only provide companionship and unconditional love, but they also can improve your health. 

A pet keeps your cholesterol and blood pressure low. Reduz your stress,  helps fight depression and keeps your immunity stronger.

They are not only good for your heart, but also for your mood. They help you interact more with people. And force you to stay more active. By having a pet you will be healthier. 

Bigwig, our dog is with us for almost a month now. Things changed  and are still changing slowly. He helped us to be more organized. We can’t leave our shoes by the door, or our sweatshirts on the chair,  or shocks on the floor and food where he can reach. Also the time that before was for computer and/or boredom now is fulfill with walks, fun, play time, bites and love. He is like our little baby and we love him more than anything.

At the park

I love take photos of him every time because I know he will grow so fast and I will miss my little puppy.

Playing

He loves carrots, people, kids, socks, run,bite, sleep, play with everything except his toys, cats, garbage truck and blog. ( he always sits on my lap and watch me blogging so I guess he likes it)

Hiding

Today I let him workout with me. In the first round, I lost my yoga mat.
